lyrics

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
