Track Name: Incursion
Terror in eyes you pray with faltering faith
To a master deaf to your pitiful cries
In the span of a frantic heartbeat yours will end forever
An instant of elation as I smash your skull

I have gazed madness in the eyes
I have returned triumphant

Perverted persuasion and insultingly shallow faith
Your only salvation is oblivion
Assumed a liberty to dictate and judge the living and dead
Come the day your master will be flayed alive

This carrion stench reflecting your rotten minds and dying faith
Your collective lies like walking corpses
Your end is dawning, the night of the fallen

Words have been spoken to me
Master's will be done

Words have been spoken to me
Master's will be done
Will be done

Words have been spoken to me
Master's will be done

I have gazed madness in the eyes
I have returned triumphant
I have returned
Track Name: Devoured By Hatred
We shall cleanse this land of taint
All means accepted
We shall bring them death
The efficient way

Prepared for annihilation
Pity is sickness when the nation's at war

The age-old enemies
Of all that is right and just
The fires are burning
We are devoured by hatred

Destroying this pest is a service
To the worthy ones
Generations to come will sing praise
In our bravery today

Prepared for annihilation
Pity is sickness when the nation's at war

The age-old enemies
Of all that is right and just
The fires are burning
We are devoured by hatred

We are cleansing this land of taint
Desperate means taken
We will watch the world burn
The efficient way

Prepared for annihilation
Pity is sickness when the nation's at war

The age-old enemies
Of all that is right and just
The fires are burning
We are devoured by hatred
Track Name: Shadow and Flame
Scourging the light
Burning whip of many thongs
Fathomless hatred
The will to strike the world in flames
World in flames

Slayer of elven kings
In caverns at the roots of the earth
Terror of the first age
Valraukar, the scourges of fire
In shadowy might

Corrupted spirit of fire
The Maiar of destruction
Immortal dread oppressor
Spreads his shadowy wings
Shadow and flame
Track Name: Hour of the Raven
To pledge my self to realm of night
Lights of dawn are knives on the throat
Shadows like a caress on my skin

Pay the toll for your damned breed
Watch helplessly as the world withers to nothing
Come the hour of the raven you will see
How wrong you are in your conviction

The blackness has come and joined with this world
We stand vigil before the adversary
Now you'll be surprised of how far these shadows can reach

Pay the toll for your damned breed
Watch helplessly as the world withers to nothing
Come the hour of the raven you will see
How wrong you are in your conviction

The dusk brings us peace and fullfilment
A renewed clarity of mind
Not a tear will be shed for the memory of old

Come the hour of the raven you will taste
The sweet allure of night's advent
Track Name: Revolution (Celestial Spheres)
To the farthest reaches of the mind
Disbelief in reality maintains sanity
Why do the doors that remain forever shut
Always have the greatest allure

The tyranny of false will cannot end
As though deserted by thought the wheel turns
Our legacy will be written in the blood we shed
Never forgotten, the graves will stand in proof

Inside, the world begins to shatter
Uncertainty seeps, a cemetery of failures
Pinned down by the slowing pace of time
Above me, the doors are waiting agape

In league with the adversary we wait for our judgment
A pact of blood and spirit binds us to the world
To the furthest reaches of the mind we are forever without a servant's mark
To take path of the fallen one is to embrace the night
Track Name: Tormentor of the Weak
Blinding light from god
Distorting all senses
Fanatic in faith
Aroused by the stench of blood

Mangling and maiming
Gutting and raping
Holy man does his purging work
Exorcism through suffering
Bloodstained hands making the sign of the cross

Abacination
Scalping and castration
The guilty will soon confess their crimes
Flagellation
Flaying and mutilation
Confession will be ripped out with their tongue

Burn the heretics
Hang the blasphemers
Rest assured
God will spare the innocent from pain

I am the wrath god
Bringer of judgement upon all
Persecutor of the living
Incarnation of satan

I am the wrath god
Bringer of judgement upon all
Persecutor of the living
Inflictor of pain

I am the wrath god
Bringer of judgement upon all
Persecutor of living
Tormentor of the weak
Track Name: The Way of the Deceiver
The road to the kingdom high
Is paved with corpses
Its flagstones fashioned
Of the bones of the false

Hail to the deceiver
Who sends man against his brother
Who delights in the death of his children
Praised be his madness

Hail to the guardians of faith
The guardians of filth

The texture of a faithful soul
Is impure and foul
It leeches upon the lives
It preaches against

Hail to the deceiver
Who sends man against his brother
Who delights in the death of his children
Praised be his madness

Hail to the guardians of faith
The guardians of taint

The way to the kingdom high
Is paved with corpses
Its flagstones fashioned
Of the bones of the false

Hail to the guardians of faith
The guardians of filth
Track Name: Illusions Dead
Awaken to embrace the night
The divine aurora ends
It was ever merely the knife
To sever the arteries of men

You serpents have betrayed
Your barbarous nature
You have been devising
Your own dissolution

Dynamic divine abstraction
Deity progresses into nothingness
Only self-conceived, a thorn
In the flesh of humanity

You serpents have betrayed
Your barbarous nature
You have been devising
Your own dissolution

Lies abate and god yields to truth
Your conviction turns to shame

My heart awash with bile
Mind driven for penance
May this world broken and weary
Be devoured by the night

God's presence recedes
Your faith turns to disgrace

My heart awash with bile
Mind driven for penance
May this world broken and weary
Be devoured by the night
