Track Name: A Dirge for the Damned
In countless rows, a funeral procession
Through colonnades of stone
Doomed to walk this path forever
On a journey towards the unknown

Through gateways of dusk and lingering shades
Possessed by the insatiable…

Fire of hunger
Fire of yearning
To reach an end untold
Ceaselessly striving
Endlessly burning
To heed the call of the void

Woe to the cursed dead
Enslaved in unbounded dread

A dirge for the damned
Beyond all salvation
Beyond mortality
Untouched by the hand
Of divine exaltation
Beyond reality

They march on, through desolate landscapes
In column towards no end
Beneath the starless heavens
They see endless night descend

Through valleys of thorns and looming spires
Consumed by incessant…

Fire of hunger
Fire of yearning
To seal the sacred bond
Ceaselessly striving
Endlessly burning
To reach the lands beyond

A dirge for the damned
Beyond all salvation
Beyond mortality
Untouched by the hand
Of divine exaltation
Beyond reality

Woe to the cursed dead
Enslaved in unbounded dread
Condemned to walk forever
Into the ceaseless never
Track Name: Rites of the Inner Shrine
The burning incense fills the air
as censers swing from withered hands
Chanting long-forgotten hymns
from beyond all mortal lands

The chiming of unearthly bells
from behind the veil of reality
The call to summon those that dwell
in phantasmal infinity

Heed this call, grotesque beings of old
Manifest as enchantments unfold

Rites of the forgotten
Rites of the unseen
Rites that summon them to rise
Those of the macabre
Those of the obscene
Rise!

The gateway opens from the deep
as foretold in prophecy
The means to summon those that sleep
in divine immortality

From the altar drenched and wet with death
ascends the end of humankind
Whispered prayers under breath
as the deities break their binds

Claim this world, dreadful beings set free
Animated by this dark liturgy

When the moon is waning
and the stars are hidden
Then the hymns are chanted
from the scrolls forbidden
When the blood is streaming
And the seals are broken
Then the portal opens
and the gods are woken

Rituals of horror
Rituals of doom
Prophecies of godly rule
You of endless malice
You of endless gloom
Rise!
Track Name: Death's Omnipotence
All men must step into the
unknown realms below
Where ebon shades lie heavy
and the dark rivers flow

To join the blighted souls of old,
beyond the veil

Descend into the darkness
from where no light returns
Cross the ethereal threshold
As the corporeal burns

All mortal aspirations
as seeds in fertile soil
may bud or blossom only
to the scythe then fall

Sed omnis una manet nox
et calcanda semel via leti

Ascend unearthly spectre
to guide their path below
To the cimmerian nightshade
where all men must go

Into the depths of that hungering abyss

Stripped of all fleshly burdens
upon that Stygian strand
Purged of all former glories
by death's disrobing hand

The flames of hope and and longing are now extinguished
The souls once bound in flesh have now been relinquished
The dreams of celestial glories are now all vanquished
Their haunted cries and whispers, reverberate so anguished

Each creature beckoned into that lightless chasm

Sed omnis una manet nox
et calcanda semel via leti

Now sound the bells of quittance
from the abysmal shrine
The cup has been drained, yet lingers
a taste of bitter wine

Descend into the darkness
from where no light returns
Cross the ethereal threshold
As the corporeal finally burns
Track Name: Shadows Etched in Stone
The flames that pierced the morning sky
with cleansing purity
Carving out our destiny
into obscurity

In winding scarlet streams
soaking the blackened earth
All civilisation yields
returned to ash and dirt

In crackling bolts of thunder
and blazing firestorms
All flesh is torn asunder
in howling gales of thorns

Splendor reduced to ashes
and crumbling palace walls
Swept up, as in a rapture
as mankind falls

Behold the light that the morningstar has thrown
All that remains are shadows etched in stone

This dawn will see a final sunrise
from whirling maelstroms born
Wielding it’s phantom flame
swallowing life with utter scorn

A permeating darkness rests
over the scorched remains
All existence ceased and perished
an eerie silence reigns

Witness the flames of the brightest sun reborn
All that remains is the dust of the forlorn
Behold the light that the morningstar has thrown
All that remains are shadows etched in stone
