I’ve been proconsul
I’ve been a slave
I’ve lived in fear of the grave.
At black altars, I have prayed.
I DISAPPEAR. I DISAPPEAR.
Smashed face morality,
Concentric rings of fear and shame.
Passive, broken, sycophantic insect.
Beg on your knees, lick your wounds
And DIE ENSLAVED.
Prideful master taken by the hook.
Illusions of dominion,
Foundationless temple of lies.
MEAT TO THE GRINDER.
SHATTERED BY TIME.
Track Name: Sacrifice
In the realm of eternal ruin
In the kingdom of perpetual loss
A transcendent anguish
A Saturnal rite.
SACRIFICE OF FLESH
In the realm of eternal burning,
A vision supreme
Boundless vistas and horizons without limit.
A sacrifice of blood and flesh.
Neither light nor dark,
In the twilight of knowing,
In the maze of existence,
DEATH IS KING.
Track Name: Death
Strangled cries from the jaws of eternity.
A flickering shimmer in the yawning void.
Stuttering, blinking, then null.
Ruin supreme, amidst the tides of annihilation,
Adrift in the churning sea of obliteration…
Till even the sea ceases to be.
Till time folds inward.
Till time is no more.
Till what once was has never been
And ALL enters oblivion.
Track Name: Mirrors Of Broken Blood
Cries of sorrow, loss and longing.
Met not with answers or calls,
But a cavernous resonance.
Beyond the threshold, behind lock and key.
The mirror is red and I am legion.
An acknowledgement of emptiness,
A crooked smile from the mouth of infinity.
BE THE MOCKING LAUGHTER.
REND YOUR FLESH.
ENTER OBLIVION FREE OF THE CORPSE OF TEMPORALITY.
Track Name: 言語っていう病気
Totem of our self destruction.
Obedient servant bound to a lie.
The imperative of history,
Shackled to a ghost.
DIE IN LANGUAGE.
At the end of the of labyrinth,
An obsidian wall, unmarked, unyielding.
At the spiral’s center
Not the circle, nor the path.
Incant your ancients
And SLAUGHTER THEM.
This album intrigued me when it first released and I've come to the point that this might be one of my favorite death metal album of all time. The first song sucks you in with the fairly conventional song length and structure. Then as the album progresses it really shows you its true potential. If you are thinking about buying this album get a physical release. Staring at the spiral before listening enhances everything. mar12
