From The Eternal Sea He Rises A cold misty fog caresses me through these dark paths of misery The dark purple aura which surrounds my darkened soul leads me to the cold pits of isolation where I dwell in solitude Deep down through subterranean gateways, the roots of the tree of life reaches the kliffotic realm of shades A universe reversed Serpents eyes full of fire, Staring from behind... The black mirror of dreams From the eternal sea He rises in divine madness I summon thee, Serpent Angel - who comes as shadow but is revealed as light From the darkest depths of the roaring Abyss - Visions rising from the hellish flames Absorbing through the spectral eye of Set Unlimited powers of chaotic divinity - Demons awaiting at the gates of Da’ath From the eternal sea He rises in divine madness Salvation... Through self-destruction Ignite my soul! Bless me with Thy immortal fire In darkness lies the eternal mysteries The darkened paths to immortality The Light of all Lights... Revealed through the Darkest of Shadows
Our Merciless Rage ... And the stars reveal the signs of horror for times yet to come The long awaited circle is complete and destroyed Gaze into the horizons of endless night We are not from this place, not of this time Through the black shivering astral lights we dwell in a place unknown by mortals, far beyond the stars Longing to destroy this cosmic tyranny, created by the demiurge The black flame rises high within our souls, which is the legacy of Lucifer’s might He who is the most enlightened of all will cast the darkest shadow Crossing the gates to worlds beyond Our ancestral bloodline awakens within us Remembering the celestial war before existence The glory of the ancient past will never be forgotten by us His brilliant light will forever remain darkness in the eyes of the blind We’ve sworn the oath against our enemies That we will open the gates once again And break the borders between the worlds So the Beast will be free again in eternity Our worship last forever!
The Rise Of Azazel Azazel! - I summon thee Fire-Djinn of the Southern Quarter Be the torch Which would ignited my soul in glorious might Immolate me in Thy presence Guide my steps on the path of shadows Let me drink From the chalice of Luciferian gnosis Awaken now! Rise from the Mountain of Darkness And resurrect the ancient cities of War and Sin Initiate me by the power of the darkest dreams Forbidden teachings of the Nephilimic Witchcraft Horned Master of the Witches Sabbath Light the fire between the horns And open the inner gates to the eternal powers and forbidden wisdom Azza Uzza Azziel Nephilum-Qayin Azazel! Ignite the flames of the black light upon the face of the earth Your gift of knowledge To forge the weapons of liberation In blasphemy and fury we rebel against the cosmic order Proud sons of Fire Rise at war and erase the clayborn
The Legacy of the Ancient Ones Across the eternal seas of infinity And beyond the blackest oceans of times The mighty Ancient Ones lie dead but dreaming Awaiting silently beyond the gates They were, They are, and They shall be The Gods of the Abyss Behold the crawling chaos that calls beyond the stars Upon the oldest desert are gateways in the form of whirling columns of iridescent dust In the day they resemble dancing pillars, and by night glowing spires When the rays of the 7 venerated stars shine in their position The ancient curse will awake from it’s primordial slumber At their return mankind shall bow their heads and serve them as lords The prayers of the prophets shall not prevail against them Neither crescent nor cross nor star can forestall their approach When once again the heavens align and the gate is opened They were, They are, and They shall be The Gods of the Abyss Behold the crawling chaos that calls beyond the stars The legacy of the Ancient Ones Upon the oldest desert are gateways in the form of whirling columns of iridescent dust In the day they resemble dancing pillars, and by night glowing spires When the rays of the 7 venerated stars shine in their position The ancient curse will awake from it’s primordial slumber From the dark stars they came before mankind existed Unseen and loathsome they descended to primal earth Beneath the oceans they brooded while ages past, till seas gave up the land whereupon the swarmed They were, They are, and They shall be The Gods of the Abyss Behold the crawling chaos that calls beyond the stars
Within the Timeless Winds of the Beyond Winds of sorrow and hate are blowing across the lands Screams of torture and pain... The cries of a thousand souls Eternal - My soul drifts through the darkened realms Frozen - Embraced by the winds of eternal frost Timeless - The realms of primordial chaos Immortal - The black splendid light of Lucifer The shadows are closing in, black clouds cover the skies Ravens welcome me, as I transcend through the celestial gate It’s the realm where one falls asleep, and awakens in Death’s eternal dream A dimension revealed, in the twilight between life and death The gaping mouth of the Abyss, awaiting to devour the cosmic creation
Stare into the Void I behold and see the waves roaring higher Absu, let your waters cleanse my soul The dark abysmal waters roar endlessly A timeless universe without beginning or end Through the hidden gates within the unconscious mind The yawning mouth of the void will devour your dying soul Dwelling through the oblivious sea of nothingness Without the eye of god, shining upon my soul I stare into the void of emptiness Which is the nexion to the dragon’s womb I’ve opened my eyes to see straight into the abyss I’ve opened my heart to receive His eternal fire I’ve opened my mind to absorb eternity I’ve sacrificed the I to grant the powers of the all seeing eye This is the void where all illusions will vanish into nothingness Illuminated by the Black Flame of Chaos I’ve seen the blackest shadows of hell I’ve felt the immense torture upon the cross of life I’ve faced the deepest fears within and embraced the infinite chaos Forget everything you once knew By staring deep into the void... The void will stare back into you Hidden caves that lead to the borders beyond imagination Spirits of chaos, let me dwell to dominions of non existence The Dark which has taken my soul and unchained me from the wheel of life It has granted me the keys to immortality
The Mysteries of the Depths And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep... Come into the depths released from thoughts and life Join the darkness beyond the limited cosmos Mysteries of realms and ages unveiled through the dragon’s eye As I abandon all hope my soul drifts upon the styx through the gates of the underworld I can hear the whirling wings of demons who will bring terror and despair! Guiding me into the darkest of nightmares into the wasteland of unending nothingness With no regrets I transcend through the fires of terror, making me forget my name In the frozen depths of despair the empty spaces between the stars The night creatures are lurking which never sleeps they are ever watchful filling my mind with the arcane wisdom The language of the shadows In her endless seas of blackness... Tiamats awaits dreaming In the sleep of death She reveals... The mysteries of the depths Mighty Tiamat! Let your roaring waves wash away the human race of this earth

Choronzon 333 - Chaos Divine Choronzon! The dweller of the Abyss! Bless me with your touch of Divine Madness A curse for those who fear it A key to unlock the doors to infinity The arcane wisdom of shadows...
The Legend of the Sunken Monastery Centuries ago, in times of medieval darkness In a great ancient forest which is born at the end of the Ice Age An enchanted swamp sucking all energy deep into the ground A domain where worlds are crossing each other Once there stood a powerful monastery with many towers, ruled by King Clovius who converted his life to christianity, expecting that his people would follow in his steps The monks lived like heathens and sold their soul to the Devil When darkness falls, the nocturnal creatures awaken Gathering for the Black Mass, to praise the One with Horns In sinful lusts they feast upon the flesh, Desecrating the laws of the holy trinity On a dark winter night, the sky turned red and lightening struck (the earth) A thundering storm crossed the forest and the earth split open The monastery was swallowed into the depths and closed Silence reigned over the haunted fields Hear the voice of the ancient winds that blows over the cursed swamps The chiming bells echoing through the night The forlorn spirits come out of the dark, walking slowly and staring in darkness They walk there rounds, accompanied with prayers from their somber litanies And when the first lights of the sun reaches the woods they disappear into the dark abyss
Night’s Blood (Dissection cover) Night haunts and evil lurks in every corner Like plague it’s spreading - I behold Loneliness, yet with you autumn night as guest But can you hear my cries? Permeate me, oh night, as with the forest you did for heart is cold, cold as ice I drown in the colour of your eye for a black heart will only find beauty in darkness I breathe it’s eternity to absorb the sky where the shadows of death may lie Feel the call - Nocturnal desire Sorrow’s breath - Enchanting cries Night’s blood - Taste damnation’s wine Feel the pain - Nocturnal desire The devil’s path of dark delight Night’s blood - Pure damnation’s wine Eyes are glowing, burn as hell’s fire Mark thy wisdom in my mind Those who never was born but whose darkness eternally devastated the goodness built up through milleniums No time passed, our victory is eternal Our scorn, our silence... A heart dies drowning in the night’s blood Everlasting malice for the wicked soul Can’t resist the night’s sweet blood Loneliness in the embrace of you autumn night The night that froze my cries Deep into the woods glows a fading light I sold my soul, cold as ice I drown in the colour of your eye for a black heart will only find beauty in darkness I breathe it’s eternity to absorb the sky Where the shadows of death may lie
