samlovemetal These three songs have been playing in my head since I found them. This is a very interesting, talented band that if they can create more songs of this caliber will go very far. That's it in a nutshell. Also the very strong musicianship is complemented by a talented vocalist that writes some truly sick lyrics that flow like the river Rubicon. Favorite track: Prionic Embrace.

Track Name: Diminish The Gods
This ivory tower of books that we’re burning
Will reach to the heavens, and burn down the skies
These statues defaced, archons and icons
Their silhouettes stand atop funeral pyres
The Horse of Dawn, Evangelion,
From the alpha to the omega
This anthem cacophanous swings like the Pendulum
Will echo resounding at the end of all time

The Kalevala and Mabinogion left un-sung
As we Diminish the Gods
The Necronom of Solomon will be rent asunder
As we Diminish the Gods

The Qabalah and Aletheon, torn apart
As we Diminish the Gods
The Catholicon, The Goetia will be rent asunder
As we Diminish the Gods
Track Name: Invasion
Worlds burning in the Great Conjunction
Adamantium limbs crack the stones of Atlas in the eclipse
Like Dracula we feed while the planets align
Archaeopteryx awakens at the Mountains of Madness as the
Skeleton water clock depicting the Zodiac keeps time

We fashioned masks in the crypts of the graveyard
And turned the bolts on our Frankenstein scapula
Concrete cracks under our jackhammer jackboots
Like Dracula we feed while the planets align in trine
We fashioned masks in the crypts of the graveyard
And turned the bolts on our Frankenstein scapula
Concrete cracks under our jackhammer jackboots
Like Dracula we feed while the planets align under the
Eye of the Basilisk gazing

I’ll tear the wings from the Pegasus and
I will steal the eyes of Medusa and then
I’ll snap the horns of a thousand unicorns under the
Eye of the Basilisk gazing

And now it’s behind us, those years in the shadows
When no one was watching, and no one was listening
Still we return again, back from the darkness
The four horsemen could never tear us away

We are a Nautilus descending down to
Ten thousand leagues underneath the ocean as the
Fault lines fracture planar tektites at the
Gates of the Triasic to Jurassic Era

We are a Juggernaut unstoppable at
Ten thousand times faster than the speed of light our
Destination is the centre of the earth like a
.30cal Bullet shot from a Dragunov

We are a Zeppelin conflagration
Phoenix flight of Daedalus and Icarus
The Book of Enoch, The Book of Revelations
Lucifer ascending, Ragnarok awakening

Sator
Arepo
Tenet
Opera
Rotas

Sator the Sower, Founder, Progenitor
Arepo, creeper, the stealthy deceiver and
Tenet the Holder, the Keeper, Possessor
Opera, whore, sister of Luna and
Rotas the wheel, revolver, rotator
Sator the Sower, Founder, Progenitor
Arepo, creeper, the stealthy deceiver and
Tenet the Holder, the Keeper, Possessor

And now it’s behind us, those years in the shadows
When no one was watching, and no one was listening
Still we return again, back from the darkness
The four horsemen could never tear us away
Track Name: Prionic Embrace
Benighted Carpathian aspect of tragedy,
Graveolent immortal, disastrous majesty
Ivory gauntleted spectre, rapturous
Habeas Corpus, stargazing entity.
Unwind graveside, centipede serpentine
Disinterred screaming, intrinsic insanity
Unwind graveside, necrotic concubine
Disinterred screaming and burnt from inside

Twilit on the hearth of the sepulcher
Caught in corporeal - disgrace
In the eye of the beholder
Caught in this prionic - embrace

What was sundered and undone
Shall be made whole, the two now one
What was sundered and undone
Shall be made whole, the two now one

As they wait, undone under the megalith, waiting for the end with the Teraphim and Nephilim and
As we wait, alone under the sycamore, seven wounds a-weeping as we’re taken by the Valkyries and
As they wait they atone before the obelisk, clawing at the vaults in the ruined halls of Izalith and
As we wait, prone before the Metatron, we stare into the void of the Cataclysm self-destructing

Undone under the megalith, waiting for the end with the Teraphim and Nephilim
Alone under the sycamore, seven wounds a-weeping as we’re taken by the Valkyries
Atone before the obelisk, clawing at the vaults in the ruined halls of Izalith
Prone before the Metatron, we stare into the void of the Cataclysm self-destructing

Infernal – burn alive as I writhe within your ribcage
Empyrion – No return as we cross the river Rubicon
Infernal – burn alive as I writhe within your ribcage
Empyrion – No return as we cross the river Rubicon

Di-sected Lovecraftian object of atrophy,
Scabrous cadaver, alabaster catastrophe
Baphomet helmeted watcher, scurrilous
Nocturnal altar of twisted anatomy.
Apocryphal ritual subject of blasphemy
Tortured and terrorized arise from your grave
Ivory gauntleted spectre, rapturous
Tetragram blazing, mortal awakening.
Disinterred screaming and burnt from inside
Disinterred screaming and burnt from inside
Centipede serpentine
Necrotic concubine

Twilit on the hearth of the sepulcher
Caught in corporeal - disgrace
In the eye of the beholder
Caught in this prionic - embrace
Track Name: Awaken The Necronaut
God-like eidolon empiric pantheon blazing
Rent asunder by talons of velociraptors
Silhouette before Jupiter’s eye as the
Sacrifice awakens in the temple of the pterodactyl

Cast down from the apex, Astral Necronaut
Traversing to the nexus, upon volcanic fault
Descending to the nadir, Neolithic vault

Catatonic travesty
Awake from deathless sleep
Submerged in atrophy
For a forgotten aeon
The word will set you free
Catatonic travesty
Awake from deathless sleep
Submerged in atrophy
For a forgotten aeon
The word will set you free

The word will set you free

Dark Lord ride forth from the grave
Hooves sparking on cyclopean masonry
Horns held high of Hephaestus flame
From the isthmus and into the sea
Dark Lord ride forth from the grave
Catastrophic sentient entity
From the isthmus and into the sea to the
Hieroglyphic emblazoned monstrosity

Thy Kingdom Reconciled
Thy Kingdom in this Dominion and in the rest
Thy Domain now defiled
Thy Domain in this Dimension and in the next

In this Dominion and in the rest
In this Dimension and in the next

Unchained Quetzalcoatl shatters the skies
Cracks the tempest like the Tesla Coil at Questacon
Taurus awaits Hyperion’s rise at the
Gates of the Parallax unhinged by the tentacle
Like worms before Unspeakable Hastur
Cast aside at the base of the leviathan
Atlantean shelf becomes Chaotic divide as the
Ritual awakens the Apostle of the Apocalypse

Dark Lord ride forth from the grave
Hooves sparking on cyclopean masonry
Horns held high of Hephaestus flame
Catastrophic sentient entity
From the isthmus and into the sea to the
Hieroglyphic emblazoned monstrosity

Cast down from the apex, Astral Necronaut
Descending to the nadir, Neolithic vault

Thy Kingdom Reconciled
The word will set you free
Thy Domain now defiled
The word will set you free
Track Name: Shadow Of The Adversary
Part I
An invocation
Inviolate avatar, pain-mailed ensanguined
Carnage personified, crimson emblazoned
Bestial war-lust, wrathful revenant
Uncomprehendable, descending abysm-ward
Excruciate Archon, Autarch disembodied
Darkness enshrouded, arise from your ossuary
Centuried nemesis, night-winged nether-lord
Uncomprehendable, descending abysm-ward

Seven times we are refined by fire
In the ash you’re cauterized

Hadean incarnate, Infinite Quazar
Veil of extinction beneath Death’s artilleried wings
Hadean incarnate, Infinite Quazar
Veil of extinction beneath Death’s artilleried wings
Beneath Death’s artilleried wings

Seven times we are refined by fire
Seven times, refined, de-haloed, and enneagrammed
Seven times we are refined by fire
Seven times, refined, de-haloed, and enneagrammed

PART II
We snarl with teeth like swords
Our claws as spears
With wings of the hurricane
All souls impierced

Full eclipse of vulturian spawn
We are the wolf in the Valhallan hall
The poisoned chalice for victorious pawn
We await with subterranean olm

We snarl with teeth like swords
We shall arise in the volcanian dawn

(All the others shall be, all the others shall be)
Cast… a…side…
(All the others shall be)
Cast… a…side…

Part III
Cast aside – while the bridge is burned behind
Cast aside – from the fires that burn at night
Cast aside – with the tetrad burning bright
Cast aside – in the ash you’re cauterized

The Sphere of Io eclipsed ancestral halls, the word was spoken
Atop the altar the sacrificial thrall, the neophyte is devoured by the awoken
Eclipsed ancestral halls, the word was thusly spoken
Sacrificial neophyte devoured by the awoken

No religion known to man you can’t cast aside
No religion known to man you can’t cast aside
No religion known to man you can’t cast aside
No religion known to man you can’t cast aside

The Sphere of Io eclipsed ancestral halls, the word was spoken
Atop the altar the sacrificial thrall
Ancient, unbroken, the Sphinx of the ages speaks.
All I am, All I was,
All I will be and am to become
Atop the altar the sacrificial thrall, the neophyte is devoured by the awoken
Ancient, unbroken, the Sphinx of the ages speaks.
All I am, All I was,
All we amount to is dust

We stand in the shadow of the Adversary beneath Death’s artilleried wings
We stand in the shadow of the Adversary - in the ash you’re cauterized
Track Name: Unbeheld Enthroned
Hexagram of thorns upon Lupus’ Constellation
Unbeheld enthroned on nethermost pyramid meridian
Atronarch Unlord in primeval conflagration
Unbeheld enthroned on nethermost pyramid promethean

Ancient mosaic of tesseract amorphous
Unnamed, depicting the distorted
Armageddon, the tapestry was torn
Unchained, the Lurker at the Threshold
Abstract
Ancient mosaic of tesseract amorphous
Unnamed, depicting the distorted
Armageddon, the tapestry was torn
Unchained, the Lurker at the Threshold

The Pivot’s power, Yzordderrex in rapture, fall
The crimson tower, the king in cruciform
The Pivot’s power, Yzordderrex in rapture, fall
The crimson tower, the king in cruciform

Nine worlds align, time between time

The Cataphract sets a furious pace as the
Sword of Damocles falls from its place as
The Hounds of Morrígan begin to bay
The forest burns as Cernunnos awaits
This is what you’ve been waiting for, all this time.

The end…..
The end…..
The end…..

The flesh unfurls with chaotic affray
The beating heart bursts free of the cage
From the throat a tempestuous flame
The temples torn to resemble the lion’s mane
Warp-spasm of Cúchulainn
Before its fury builds a wall of the slain, falling
Into the void

Blood boils in a ferverous spray
The spine contorting like a torturous serpent
Fangs of the wolf burst forth from the countenance
Talons tearing muscle and sinew from the surface
The skull shatters with internal disarray
Malformed limbs take a hideous purpose
Eye sockets burn with a Three-fold Flame
Warp-spasm of Cúchulainn

This is what you’ve been waiting for, all this time.
This is what you’ve been waiting for, all this time.
All this time
This is what you’ve been waiting for, all this time.
All this time
