Track Name: Afsky - Frosten Knuger Sjælen I Graven
-
Track Name: Amiensus - What Words Create
:: WHAT WORDS CREARE ::

Behold mortality, my strongest foe
I cannot understand thy nature
Who would question the light? A secret of thine
Dreamt into being, this darkness cannot prevail

Who would question the bright?
Darkness shall not succeed
Yet his beguilement seduces defeat
Casting all rules aside, unwilling to lose

In darkness, relentless, I fight for myself
In madness, defenseless, seek sanity
With wisdom, in gladness, for fear of my sight
Arise to reveal a path to paradise

What words create, life takes away
And reveals the disguise
Left here to uncover a secret of yours

The fleeting motion, of what we can’t see
Shadows hide bleak scars that run deep
And yet we all find comfort inside
Here beneath our insanity

A damaged façade
Hiding from the world
Escape this reality
Dreamt into being

Thus as we speak this fractured litany
Our illusions become icons and gods
The essence of being denies our fallacies
For the axiom of infinity cares not for the awareness of man.Behold mortality, my strongest foe

Track Name: Ancient Rain - The Altar
:: THE ALTAR ::

The earth, dull and damp
Soaked with celestial blood
Destined by the rain

A seldom trodden path
Known for ages
Through thickets and bogs
Branches swinging in the storm
Marking the face like time
The ancient journey towards
The Altar

Solve et coagula

There amidst the foothills
Matter turns into energy
Where all dimensions entangle

Solve et coagula

A final offering
Ritual of yore
Loosen spirit from body
And prepare for reintegration
Into the river
Track Name: ANCST - In Decline
:: IN DECLINE ::

I will look back to what once was, I will remember not forget. these days are filled with (a) moral void. backed by the state they fill us up with hate and prejudice. the east is lost and so is the west. behind the curtains I saw your racist face. the now is darkened, you have not learned. false peace conspiracy, bourgeois ignorance.
it's time to spark these flames of resistance, take back these streets of ours. the blood of millions at your hands, you will never learn from history. a thousands march, self righteous and blinded, connected by your shit ideals. left and right, hand in hand. united in their hatred.
it has awoken, this beast of prey, a gorge of fear. you will spark confrontation. angst ridden western world, so lost in exposure. your selfishness will be your downfall. I'm ashamed by all of you.
Track Name: Ära Krâ - Odem
:: ODEM ::

Grau die Wolken
hoch am Himmel schwärzen die Erde
schwärzen die Erde mit Schatten der Nacht

Das Leben eine Maskerade
Im Geist all der Mut gefangen
Vorbei nun die alten Tage
Alles was war hinfortgegangen

Suchend nach Sinn, weit in der Ferne
Eins mit den Wolken, eins mit der Leere
Stehst nun hier oben, weit über der Stadt
Ein Meer aus Beton und Stein
Arme geöffnet, Augen geschlossen,
entschlossen sich vom Leben zu befrein

Dort unten hinter grauen Fassaden hausen sie, jeder für sich
Irgendwann liegt jeder im Grabe, von Erde begraben, jeder für sich

Hinfort Geist und Verstand nun schweben
Nur dein Körper noch stehend, hier oben
weit über der Stadt, ein Meer aus Licht und Schein
So schwer hier oben dein Odem

Dort unten hinter grauen Fassaden hausen sie, jeder für sich
Irgendwann liegt jeder im Grabe, von Erde begraben, jeder für sich

Kein Lächeln, kein Blick,
keine Hand, nichts davon wird noch geteilt
Alles verschwimmt, nichts ist mehr sichtbar
Nicht mal die Körper der Menschen dieser Zeit
Hier oben weit über der Stadt, nun ein Meer aus Licht und Stein
willst du nun wagen den Schritt nach vorne ins Nichts?
Den Schritt in eine andere Welt?
Track Name: Artillerist - Cursed Veins
:: CURSED VEINS ::

This hollow rotting shell, walls of burning flesh.
This void is cold, you can't feel the light.
Words like daggers in my chest.
Punctured lungs never rest.
My veins are cursed.
Track Name: Ashtar - These Nights Will Shine On
:: THESE NIGHTS WILL SHINE ON ::

To walk under these stars
It’s like living another life again
All our dreams within
The stars enlighten our path
Until the sun will rise again
As real as the daylight
These nights will shine on
Track Name: AST - Fraktale
:: FRAKTALE ::

Welten zerbrechen vor dir
im Nullpunkt gefangen, minus 200 Grad
ekstatische Leere in statischer Angst
wen glaubst du zu finden in Augen so brach?

und umgeben von diesem Graustufenhorizont liegen Städte zurück, erleuchtet von Sehnsucht

Variablen zu Staub
all jene verloren
in Pfade gedrängt
von Riesen zerstampft

ein Zeuge dieses Verlusts, ein Netz aus Tränen und Hass
der Weg einst ward unser Sinn verliert jede Kontur
Track Name: Drought - Fire Breathing (Urdva Kundali Arise)
-
Track Name: Greytomb - Boundless Introspection
:: BOUNDLESS INTROSPECTION ::

Intrinsic psychopathy
dazzles the obscene
thwarting concepts
beyond the spectrum
cherish the radiance
Purity of the third eye

Intrinsic psychopathy
Inherent wisdom
expanding perception
spherical abyss, wide open

unfathomable destination
projection beyond known universe

I am here, laying in wait
I can feel everything
and I can feel nothing
All at once, time is dilated
Shallow, thoracic breathing
Acceptance of the inevitable

Delving into the realm of the true self
That which has detached from the ego
at one with abyssal light
at one with abyssal darkness!
hypersensation of inward frontiers
clasp cortex cohesion

An infinity of thought
metaphysical procession through depths
Black murk illuminates relativity
Light years beyond Death!!!
The link between realities
This is the missing link
between realities
This is the missing link

An awakening so imbued
Essence of the spirit
Buried within crude flesh
Essential Iconoclasm
Freedom freedom freedom
This is just a step

Freedom!
This is just a step
Track Name: Hungry Like Rakovitz - Inevitable Return To Darkness (Obscuritate I)
:: THE INEVITABLE RETURN TO DARKNESS (OBSCURITATE I)

MULTIPLY VICTIMS
THROW UP THE LIGHT
GIVE OUT MISERY
THE DARKEST NIGHT

WANDER IN WANE
LYING OVER BLOOD

I WORE SKULLS AND BONES
TO GLORIFY THE DARK

I HATED GOLDEN THRONES
I DESPISED HOLY CROWNS

I PISS ON THEIR SHRINES
TO GLORIFY THE DARK

I DEFILED THE CROSS
TO GLORIFY THE DARK. DARK. DARK

I’M GONNA TELL YOU
YOUR LIFE ENDS TODAY

WANDER IN WANE
MOON IS AWAY

AND NEVER FORGET THAT

I AM MAYHEM
NIGHT FOREVER

I’M THE DEATH THAT VISIT YOU AT NIGHT
AT DAWN NEITHER THE SUN WILL BE ALIVE
Track Name: Lucian The Wolfbearer - Carrion Wyrms
:: CARRION WYRMS ::

Somber, Devour the breath , rip the empty skies
Aggressor of death, funeral hymns, ascending waves of rune
A haunting end, coffins fill of grim, vile victor
The bite of blade, deaths door, The worm of deep departure

The blighted terrain, sullen tied, cosmic dying grave
Birth of hel, serpent of gloom, the crust of scaring corpus fell through

Worm of death

Hellish, eater aspirant
legion roots monstrous
tail bitten, archfiend
the hammer strike you dead
Necrosis tomb, harrowing
the somber mourn in fear
Bane of light, withered grim
Titan of giants

Devour of death, wyrm of deep
Track Name: nullingroots - Please Respond
:: PLEASE RESPOND ::

I try, but I get no response.
I beg for God to rid this pain.
An affidavit to my own well-being that may never be answered.
If not for me, then for that who I’ve brought into this world, 18 years ago.
The only thing that keeps me in contentment to this day.
I am not worthy of such a selfish request otherwise, to benefit my life to serve my selfish comfort.
A trudge worth marching.
I want you in my life.
Please respond, I need you.
With palms clasped shut and eyes sealed closed, I beg for God to rid this pain.
A deafening silence consumes me, it engulfs me.
This silence consumes me.
I beg for God to rid this pain, I beg for your divinity.
I want, I need you.
I’m left cold, numb, hanged to dry.
I see no light, no miracles, no salvation.
Why do I get no answer? I believe in you, I repent, I love you.
Please respond.
Track Name: Rorcal - Αἵμων
-
Track Name: Sadistic Son - Thanatos
:: THANATOS ::

I live where night joins day
Where no light ever is
Imprisoned between heaven and hell

Through darkness I am crawling
Through twilight I am prowling
With iron heart, relentless mind

Enemy of your undying gods

I am the enemy of your gods
Across a sea of fear
I come to hunt your kind
I am the enemy of your gods
Across a sea of tears
I come to hunt your souls
Track Name: Slaves BC - Nothing Remains But Death
:: NOTHING REMAINS BUT DEATH ::

The light of my youth is fading from my eyes.
The sun grows dark as we sink nearer to the ground
My bones are bent.
My hands are twisted
Meat has lost its taste
wine has lost its warmth
I have watched the sun and moon dance across the sky It seems endlessly,
But they have danced before I came and they will continue for a time after I am gone.
My home crumbles around me
Those that I have known wait for me in the ground
Nothing I have done, owned, seen, or learned will add even a day to my life
I have done all there was to do Nothing remains but Death.
I've spent my life chasing at the wind always it slipped through my fingers
I've spent my life chasing at the wind and now I cannot catch even my breath.
Track Name: THURM - Dawn
:: DAWN ::

nature’s garden once was mankind’s home
closed eyes didn‘t see the beauty outside
a scene of destruction every now and then
we cannot rebuild what is lost forever
old shine - shimmering like water in the sun
lost shine - like a thunder rises and water becomes dark
walls crumble - all glamour is gone
all that remains is dust
the brave new world, a fiction of lies
it‘s the dawn of an era where we will erase ourselves
we cannot rebuild what is lost forever
we cannot remove the poison we‘ve spread
we can’t recreate the species we wiped out
we cannot rescue what we destroyed ourselves
we cannot rebuild what is lost forever
Track Name: Ulvesang - Arms In Pledge To Ellis
:: ARMS IN PLEDGE TO ELLIS ::

chemognostically induced chants
Track Name: Varum - Nyctophilia
-
Track Name: Windfaerer - Celestial Supremacy
:: CELESTIAL SUPREMACY ::

Within the tempest we journey towards the sun
Enthroned and draped in supremacy
It shines upon the sea like a daunting dream

The ire of Poseidon consumes our fate
The lust for empire hardens our quest
A monument to the iron within our veins

This is the legend we have forged
This is the essence of our blood
Under this sign there is conquest
(gloria et silentium)

Under this sign the sea is carved
(gloria et silentium)

The silence, it drapes the earth
Echoes absconded in dust
In temples of gloom, buried in steel

The edge of earth lies in our wake, an icon of our sorrows
