What I will add is that it is essential listening for everyone into death metal. You cannot listen to death metal and not know this band and what their catalogue has done for the genre. Favorite track: Promulgation of the Fall.

zirtonic Dead Congregation perfected the caverndeath formula on their last album and elevated it to something greater on "Promulgation." This is the genre's modern archetype and it deserves every bit of respect that that terminology commands. Favorite track: Promulgation of the Fall.

Ripping my throat apart with my hands Screaming in madness and gargling in blood Breaking my fingernails peeling my skin off A perfectly choreographed self hypnosis ritual Leads: A.V. – T.K. – A.V. – T.K. – A.V. Reality fades as eyes become white Chants are sung backwards and louder Red velvet soaked in blood drowns the words that were written Figures come forth from the waves on the wall A tongue of fire slithers down my head Burning all that is conscious and real And enlightens me until ashes and faith remain (A.V. – T.K. – A.V.) What I see shall be only ornaments for the Lord What I speak shall be the praise and truth of the Lord What I build shall become tomb for the weak and the innocent And they will vanish, never to sow their anemic seed again

Your Kingdom ultimately collapsed Splendor decayed by your own decrepitude Muttered lamentations, the hopelessness of hope Imminent submission The Fallen Angel is rising...

Serpentskin 05:33
Pieces of flesh cover this desert Cursed place that hope never reached Doglike demons sweep across the land Where only thorns grow to shape Christ’s crown Rivers of blood nourish the jewels of the leper king Ribald memorial shining like fires Shadows whisper of the thing that was forever here Menial creatures swarm towards this damnation To be devoured by the beasts of light Body parts spread all around this tower Where only legends and memories live Of lust for carnal resurrection Sacrificed to feed the worms And to keep the earth warm Under this dead pile The soil is alive And skin is growing, Taking our master’s final form Chaos: A.V.

Murk of suffocation The depths antecedent ooze Qlippotent omniscience Quintessence maligned Husks discarded lurk Neath starless pools Cracked molds, the broken shells Of Excremental design Disembodied abolition In sands preceding time Fossils of abortion The slough of autochthon Smashed fragments Menace even in the acknowledgement Of their existence Spiny thoughts to pierce Lead: A.V. The very membranes they sustain The delicate untruth Quagmire of pre existence Where no separateness lies.

Lead: A.V. Shades were riding the winds Towards me, to fill my lungs Snakes unreel from my hair As walls crawl closer Image blurs, stirring cauldron Suffocating black fumes Immaculate poison Descent to maddening silence Entering this sleep Dreamless deathlike sleep Never to return Locked inside Abyss eternal Tentacles rising From the surface of the subconscious Leads: T.K. - A.V. – A.V. Immense cliffs of flesh To satisfy his lust Forever nailed alive Nevermore fucking Christ. Lead: A.V.

Nigredo 05:00
Black waves drowning the horizon Ocean swallows ocean – Earth and spirit flushed away As reason disintegrates Black waves drowning the horizon Hounds leap forth from the waters Each of them tearing at the throat While waves wash the body Black waves drowning the horizon Admire the beauty of fear Love the star in the dog's eye House of the soul falls to the waves Lead: A.V. Black waves drowning the horizon Overwhelming roar of elements Wading waist-deep into fright Plunging into infinity Lead: A.V. Black waves drowning the horizon A flickering light in the depths Sea vomits body ashore Followed by one who walks upright

Schisma 07:18
And from within the black lungs of desire you betray, as you always did, yourself From within the lungs of desire you betray yourself once more and that which you worshipped as god. Death never whispered your name in the shadows, Not out of fear, Not because you won, but to punish and humiliate you. The one who didn’t even deserve to die, The absolute nothing... Cursed to live, desiring to end. Cursed to live, desiring to end. Cursed to end… On my knees I scream and beg you to perpetuate the schism with the world of fraud and pain and forget all your children, you so deliberately deceived and lied to; as you walk away, the tears you cry will be our Holy Communion Worthless Father And we will laugh and spit at you as you leave, never to consider returning or looking back at us. The tears you cry will be our Holy Communion and with it to celebrate your final and TRUE DEATH. All leads: A.V.

Blood and ashes Riddle of clay From the shoulder of Man And the womb of the whore Image of god reversed Eyes look inside Holding the book Where all pages are void Nothing is true Chaotic maze Forms are dissolved Withered by Death Deep in the black earth Planting the seed With larvae and worms To create the negative Inferno: A.V. Torch of truth A burning bush The only light Archaic knot Leads: T.K. - A.V. Blood and ashes Riddle of clay From the shoulder of Man And the womb of the whore An answer with no question An end without beginning Eye of Satan Lock and the key
