Track Name: Enthroned in Flesh
A rotten voice rolls in like mist as he stirs,
a hidden cult singing the unlocking verse.
The plague upon all as the world is its feast,
a visceral hunger possessing the beast.

New dreams are ripped asunder,
so older dreams can thrive,
a world will fall to plunder
and death will come alive.

Chanters cry out as the seal is undone.
Witnessing the dawn of slaughter, begun.
Damned, but lamenting a perished infinity,
masses repent to their untrue divinity.

See him enthroned, in flesh, exsanguinate the world.
Endless nyctocracy, apocalypse unfurled.
Then one last threnody in his stentorian voice.
Stellar anathemas imbibe it and rejoice.

Out of a nebulous vortical sky,
down where the uncounted ill-fated lie
rushes a torrent of nidorous rains,
an unending cascade of human remains.

Accompanied by an opprobrious curse.
A spell from a hand not of this universe.
The antediluvian spoken monstrosity
calls to the undying, breathing atrocity.

See him enthroned, in flesh, exsanguinate the world.
Endless nyctocracy, apocalypse unfurled.
Then one last threnody in his stentorian voice.
Stellar anathemas imbibe it and rejoice.

A loathsome, execrated
progeny will rear
the bestial night’s awaited
dominion on this sphere.

New dreams are ripped asunder,
so older dreams can thrive,
a world will fall to plunder
and death will come alive.

See him enthroned, in flesh, exsanguinate the world.
Endless nyctocracy, apocalypse unfurled.
Then one last threnody in his stentorian voice.
Stellar anathemas imbibe it and rejoice.
Track Name: Tabula Rasa
Efface what is execrable,
tear down all things odious.
Manifest in eradication
the hatred of all human life.

For a world this menial,
the only meaning can be found
in complete obliteration
and absolute oblivion.

Come, for we welcome
your wings of devastation.
Grind down this world
beneath your crushing heel.

Extinguish all life, offer pity for none,
embody immolation as the purifying one.
Leave nothing standing, let no sign of life persist.
Leave no trace remaining that it ever did exist.

Burn all life to cinder dust
and let the human ashes snow.
Dress the world in mourning
with a sooty winter’s blackened glow.

You are the afflicting salt
strewn into aberrant earth.
Personify the massacre
that brings the rule of night’s rebirth.

Efface what is execrable,
tear down all things odious.
Manifest in eradication
the hatred of all human life.

For a world this menial,
the only meaning can be found
in complete obliteration
and absolute oblivion.

Come, for we welcome
your wings of devastation.
Grind down this world
beneath your crushing heel.

Extinguish all life, offer pity for none,
embody immolation as the purifying one.
Leave nothing standing, let no sign of life persist.
Leave no trace remaining that it ever did exist.

Your terrible rage will efface the terrene.
A tabula rasa left after the fall,
to fill with the chthonic spawn of the unclean.
You are the scythe that will harvest us all.

Burn all life to cinder dust
and let the human ashes snow.
Dress the world in mourning
with a sooty winter’s blackened glow.

Bring a new enlightenment
and let the reign of shadows soar.
Rise, imperial, glorious,
and hold the throne, forevermore.
Track Name: Blood Libation
Claw off my skin from the shivering bone,
I relinquish it to you, a gift upon the stone.
Excise my entrails for horrors yet unknown.

Gorge! Fervent!

Coil yourself around this skull of mine,
let this offering and you intertwine.

Feed! Ardent!

End your aeon-long starvation,
slake your thirst with blood libation,
rise in power.

Take this sign of my devotion,
set the sacrifice in motion
and devour.

Open my chest, tear it apart,
slither your tongue, tasting the heart.
Pierce it with teeth, making it burst,
drink drown the sap, poured for your thirst.

Rivulets of red are streaming,
purling to euphoric screaming,
and your myriad eyes are gleaming
as you dig into my flesh again.

Raise up your curving talons high and thresh
into dripping shreds this offering of flesh.
Lift my carcass and tighten your grip,
shatter my bones and feel the marrow drip.

Gorge! Fervent!

Braid my sinews to wear them as a wreath.
Inhale my blood as it begins to seethe.

Feed! Ardent!

In my final consecration,
relishing each laceration,
bliss is blazing.

Swallow my entire essence
in rapacious coalescence,
my last praising.

End your aeon-long starvation,
slake your thirst with blood libation,
rise in power.

Take this sign of my devotion,
set the sacrifice in motion
and devour me.
Track Name: The Cadaver Monarch
Inured to erosions of time and of rot,
I have journeyed and waited and sought.

I have wandered through crypt and illusion,
with remains of the lesser trampled under my feet.
I have been given the horror of premonition,
to know of inescapable, cosmic defeat.

I have waited with unwavering patience,
through the glacial movements of time.
I have seen malignant constellations
with hidden purpose, crawling the vault, sublime.

I have searched in graves lying yawning,
breathing abominations into the gloom,
to find the begetter of a tenebrous dawning,
inanimate, still, in some sepulchral womb.

Into the ominous gateways of dreaming,
in search of the spirit of primeval might.
Drawn by a curious, unnamable gleaming,
born from the sleep of a sentient blight.

Out of the depths came a cold exhalation,
a twisted, enticing and summoning call,
enticing with visions of annihilation.
I’ll revel in witnessing everything fall.

I have felt the irruption of blazes
as new worlds have sprung out of nought.
I have seen when extinction embraces
all of them, in time, without thought.

I have persevered with patience unfailing,
haunting the shadowy relict structures beneath.
Hardened to the absonous iblis wailing.
I have swam through the fathomless ocean of teeth.

Out of deep
chasms of the night.
I have watched,
but not with my own sight.

Tendrils of visions invaded
my spirit and drove me to find
the sight that in me never faded,
that harrowed and smoldered my mind.

I have found the eater of civilizations,
buried, but gazing with my eyes.
Hegemon, hear my reverent adulations.
My longing for delirium and demise.

Out of deep
chasms of the night.
I have watched,
but not with my own sight.

Into the ominous gateways of dreaming,
in search of the spirit of primeval might.
Drawn by a curious, unnamable gleaming,
born from the sleep of a sentient blight.

Out of the depths came a cold exhalation,
a twisted, enticing and summoning call,
enticing with visions of annihilation.
I’ll revel in witnessing everything fall.

Into the ominous gateways of dreaming,
in search of the spirit of primeval might.
Drawn by a curious, unnamable gleaming,
born from the sleep of a sentient night.

Out of the depths came a cold exhalation,
a twisted, enticing and summoning call,
enticing with visions of annihilation.
I’ll revel in witnessing everything fall.

Outside the ruins I’m waiting,
and countless ages have passed.
The quelling of light is elating,
as the catafalque opens at last.
