mongreljack 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.

Nekrofrod The damn-near perfect, riveting, and intense experience that lies within this vinyl can not be compared to anything but other records by Dead Congregation. From the moment that first tone hits your ear the cavernous, thundering sound of Greek death keeps obliterating its way out of the speakers. I can`t remember last time I blasted a record for the first time and felt an instant urge to worship. THIS, is Death Metal at it`s finest. Can´t recommend strongly enough. Favorite track: Morbid Paroxysm.

2.
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!
3.
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
4.
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!
5.
Voices 04:43
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
6.
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
7.
Subjugation 01:10
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
8.
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
9.
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 I PRAY FOR TOTAL DEATH
