Track Name: Abomination
ABOMINATION

My surface gleaming, not a trace of dust
While decomposing inside
A soul so filthy, cold, obese and unjust
The only salvation
The only release is to die

Pus infestation
I rip the crust
Abomination
I vomit in disgust

The casket opens and my true face of death
Defying attempts to define
Abode of maggots, oozing from my last breath
The only essence
The only truth is to die

Pus infestation
I rip the crust
Abomination
I vomit in disgust

Abomination as I rip off the crust
When I see clearly what I have become
My stomach turns another round in disgust
Cannot the empire take me home?

The ones who boast of the desires of their soul
Yield to desires of their flesh
They lurk like fowlers, lie in wait and unfold
There is no salvation
Only the process to die

Pus infestation
I rip the crust
Abomination
I vomit in disgust
Track Name: Death On A Pole
DEATH ON A POLE

Hogtied on a pole
Looking up onto the sky
His face is sweaty
A putrid stench as it turns dry
Clenching fist whitening
A mad grin slowly forms
As the rope is tightening
The actor’s blood runs warm

Death on a pole

Chanting in forgotten tongues
Intensely strangulate
Gurgling bloody mucus spews from the lungs
Crown of thorns penetrate
Brutal form of death
Rusty dagger in the gut
Reenactment of the final breath
Of the saviour of man

Death on a pole

I found you on the roadside
The perfect body for my game
We all got sin my children
To repent
You don’t really get to chose
Can’t you see I have an urge to act my play?
You look just like in my all seeing dream
Let the show begin

Death on a pole
Track Name: Heathens
HEATHENS

The teachers rise again
To impart upon you
To make you pay
For what you done

Gloating upon the epitaph of man
In the crypts where the flood arrived
By hammer and chisel from a heretic’s hand
That drained the blood from pigs and thrived

Death awaits
When the circle breaks

Heathens who came to soil and falsify
The word as been taught by the teachers of death
Feel the reprisal for your patricide
As you take your last breath

They painted the corpses so elaborately
Uttered the shrieks at the witches’ Sabbath
No indulgence for death to disagree
They summoned the spirits of Quth and Azaroth

Death awaits
When the circle breaks

Heathens who came to soil and falsify
The word as been taught by the teachers of death
Feel the reprisal for your patricide
As you take your last breath
Track Name: Squeezing Out the Life
SQUEEZING OUT THE LIFE

Rip off the heads from tender meat
Beyond the screams you start to eat
Feels so good to masticate
To chew the flesh where the density is great

Ante meridiem in the cradle of scum
Unknowing of your demise
Tearing the dripping, meaty chunks
All soaked with gravy and blood
Voracious fucker, you call on me to gorge
To serve your insatiable lust
I’ll be your stabber in the chamber of forage
I help you wither to dust

And it will end all strife
Squeezing out the life

In days of slaughter you were fattening your heart
Grew so obese and unjust
Riches now rotting, garbs encumbered with moth
That gleaming skin starts to rust
Be no salvation to cling to after death
Corrosion eats your flesh
Time here will cease, so indulge in every breath
Cord tightening around your neck

And it will end all strife
Squeezing out the life

Strands of silk
Will put you to death
It will end all strife
Threads on your throat
The weight on your chest
Squeezing out the life
Track Name: Desecrated Tomb
DESECRATED TOMB

He’s walking across the cemetery
He looks beyond the fallen trees
He has no fear, no sign of worry
Won’t fall down onto his knees
He goes on with determination
With a goal set in his sight
The result is annihilation
The power is not within his might

Desecrated tomb

He can’t believe what he has done
He’s lost within an evil maze
When it’s time to bury his son
It’s time for the judge to count his days
That thing is rising from the grave
He will revive the unholy curse
But when he thinks that he’d be saved
There is just one man who dares

Desecrated tomb

He takes the path to the place of wrath
Heading for the small god’s sink
He passes the trees that make the path
To execution, he’s on the brink
Track Name: Epitaph Engraved/Wheels of Mastication
WHEELS OF MASTICATION

The orifice of emotional restraint
The spot where they want you to die
A slow death, withering away
A coffin to put out the whiffs of life

The torture of cubicle death
Whispering voices in your head
Masters compressing your chest
A servant you will be until you’re dead

Feel the wheels of mastication
Grind you to annihilation
Feel the wheels of mastication

Vultures of the shimmering green
Conductors of hustle and toil
Shackle the obese and obscene
Pressure the blood until it boils
Complex of corpses conceived
A labyrinth of lingering death
Funeral for the freedom of man
Chains that rid you of your breath

Enter the undead
Feeble wills of God’s creation

Feel the wheels of mastication
Testament to your damnation
Feel the wheels of mastication

Tamed, drained of all life
Churned in the chambers within
Feel the agonizing pain
As your skin is ripped off your limbs

Enter the undead
Feeble wills of God’s creation
Feel the wheels of mastication
Track Name: Bloodstained Visions
BLOODSTAINED VISIONS

Bodies convulsing in terrible pain
Your brain is melting, screaming in vain
Eyeballs glowing, madness reigns
Darkness arise, poison your veins

Total suicide, fire in the air
Exterminating process, faces of despair
Putrefying bodies, no one to care
Crucifixion awaits in the demons’ lair

World of chaos
Save us death
Humanity is gone
No more breath

Rivers of blood throughout the land
The children are bathing, they don’t understand
Excrements of the dead are found
Deep in the blood where they have drowned

Blood still floating, town is red
A horrible massacre, the people are dead
Stop this madness, can it be done?
A question absurd, there is no more fun

World of chaos
Save us death
Humanity is gone
No more breath
Track Name: Blasphemy
BLASPHEMY

What will I gain if he will die?
A fortune too great to grasp
A blasphemous proposition
The son of man will just pass

No malediction or animosity
Benevolent visions of my enemy
Pockets full of treasuries
Defying blasphemy

Betrayer of the way, truth and life
Forces of darkness will laugh out its scorn
To mark the delivery a kiss
You will hang in a tree, dead in the morn

No malediction or animosity
Benevolent visions of my enemy
Years of happiness await for me
Then I will burn for my blasphemy
Track Name: Sinner Waketh
SINNER WAKETH

Behold the crimson construction
Sign of the inverted cross
Within the bowels of Sodom
All humanity is lost

Bodies writhing in pleasure
Upon the altars so vile
Envision sins beyond measure

In this cauldron of chaos
All living beings will cease
A sacrificial apocalypse
Rid the land of disease

Without remorse or compassion
The hand of God will strike
Erase the evil processions

Cancerous soulless flesh
Blasphemous dying breath
Ominous furnace death
Sinner waketh

From beyond the reign of death
Those whom the gods detest
We spite the trinity
And rise towards immortality

Cancerous soulless flesh
Blasphemous dying breath
Ominous furnace death
Sinner waketh
