ParrotsAway Thick guitar tone and barraging drums lead a headlong charge of vocals. The low volume of the grunts give them a sort of evil "brooding" characteristic that suits the rest of the music exceptionally. This record is a nonstop belligerent barrage of dark irreverence that envelopes the listener. Blistering and unforgiving. Highly-addictive and worth dozens of spins. Favorite track: Vanishing Faith.

Michael Hojjatie Hyped-up like crazy as "The next Incantation!" Maybe not so much, but still a fine ode to 90s death metal madness. Favorite track: Voices.

Spinebrain Absolutely devastating and aggressive blackened death just the way that makes my head nod 666 rpm. Favorite track: Graves Of The Archangels.

Track Name: Martyrdoom
Track Name: Hostis Humani Generis
Goat horned god of plagues
In thy name I carve my flesh
I wish to be reborn!

Cast your darkness so I can see the light
Let it perforate my soul
the sun will set no more...

Lay me down on the bed of death
Allow me to return redeemed
Quench my thirst with vigorous bile
Bestow upon me hate

Hostis Humani Generis

Purge the earth from human pest
Manifestation of satanic might
Spit forth thy utmost wrath
An epitome of doom!
Track Name: Morbid Paroxysm
Morbid paroxysm leads to despair
Insanity springs eternal
Lucidity fades to its demise...

Disintegration of the soul
To the existential void

Sanity ordains me not
A servant of paramount chaos
On perpetual orbit in the cosmos
Track Name: Vanishing Faith
Wrecks of vanishing faith
Long lost herd of self-deceitful
Entrapped in pseudo morality
Sanctimonious disciples of blatant hypocrisy

Sin after sin, you commit
Yet hide int he veils of repentance,
only to sin again!
You repulse me...

Terminate... the bigotry

I assail your paltry messiah
I deflower the immaculate whore
I invert your symbols of worship
For I am the envoy of Satan!
Track Name: Voices
The dry heads of the young ones
Staring at me await the hour,
Mouths halted mid-scream
Eyes black with death

A golden lamen 'neath each tongue
Adorned by sings obscure
A body of weeds 'neath each wreck
Ritually prepared and bound

In the lamp's flickering light
I stare them in the eye
Shadows dance their faces
Their gaze returns mine

Demons howling backwards
Trees move in the breeze
My mind starving for reason
When with one voice they speak
Track Name: Graves Of The Archangels
Rotted bones turn in earth:
while eye almighty gazes
Sealed behind its lid
bound by triangular coffin.

Rotted bones turn in the earth
beetles crawl undivine tissue

Soil shifts by movement
remnant seeks another ---

A predator's decayed wing
decorates foreign torso
A lion's claws, old horns of ox
& a manlike face rises monstrous

Rafael, Sandalfon, Michael, Uriel:
fourfold immortality rid of life
Debased in mortal graves
In a shameful uprising rejoined

Fourfold immortality rid of life,
fourfold renunciation of Λόγος
fourfold blasphemy of death.

Denying their father once holy:
on arbitrary anatomy
This hideous mass rises
to replace messiah
Track Name: Subjugation
Soul and flesh segregated in a quest
Baptized in raven's blood
Prolific entities vegetating --- longing for
The revival of our father Satan

We are subdued
Track Name: Source Of Fire
Glane of desire
Towards what was once needed
Now that all got obtained, used and consumed
Lack of hope force-fed
Energy tuned into fire.

Starving, craving, feeding
the endless process

Curving, forcing, bleeding
Sins never confessed

Glorification of other
Icon revealed through needs
Icon eaten, swallowed
Turning the outside into inside
Vortex of fire
Vortex of will
Vortex of power

Make me whole
Let the rise reach its peak of transcendency
Go through mind conspiracy
My own soul private enemy
Track Name: Teeth Into Red
Teeth in flesh, red deep
Dead on the floor
Your lord consumed by rats
Twenty hundred years now
Why the fuck can't you forget him?

Eating His flesh
And drinking His blood
