RAW DEATH INSPIRED DOOM, RIGOR SARDONICOUS DRAWS FROM TRULY APOCALYPTIC SOURCES FOR THEIR INSPIRATION AND FORWARD INTO THIS VOID A SONIC ATMOSPHERE NOT OF FRIGHTENED AND DEPRESSIVE APPREHENSION, BUT RATHER OF FRIGHTENING, HORRIFIC BLEAKNESS DRAWN FROM THE PERSPECTIVE OF THE ABSENCE OF HOPE FOR ALL LIFE! ... more

Track Name: The Dead
On this holy day as the dead doth now rise
The earth does now weep to the waning skylight

A chasm of the hollow
A fortune stained of blood
A light upon the blackest shadow
A frigid touch of dust

Upon this placid dome in the whispering breath of night
A silent life does fade in it's lonely cries of fright

A naked mound of frozen hope
A stilled desecration of lies
A fallen death upon the Unknown
A feeble gaze from unnamed life

Blood taints the morning horizon, a golden silhouette of unlife
The lost allure of heaven has died in the rot of the Crypt
Blood taints the morning horizon, a golden silhouette of unlife
The lost allure of heaven has died in the rot of the Crypt
Track Name: Sleepless
In the twilight frost a chilled earth does weep
as it's life fades to the ashes of clay

Mother is gone and bereft of hope
In a slumbering sigh all that was has died

A shade cast to the cold, black rain;
In the sleep that never dreams the pale cover of earth's harvest is barren

Weep your sighs as they cascade to ice
The breath of life has frozen in the night

Herein lies dead emptiness
Embrace the sombre desolation in this respite of grace

Mother is gone and bereft of hope
In a slumbering sigh all that was has died
Track Name: Risus Ex Mortuus
Sleep as you descend and fly away beyond
The earth's crimson soul forgotten by god
Unheeded dreams in nightmares abound
As the flesh wither and fall to the ground

The darkened Abyss of wretched unlife
Of rigid, cold flesh so horrid in sight
Life is now lost among this putrid decay
Lost, gloriously lost, is the warmth of the day

Gone is all life
Sleep without dreaming
Farther beyond hope
Pleading in suffrage

As the violet rose dies in the night the frost beckons the cold

Weep as ye may lie; a rapture in Twilight
The life of Death draws near and clutches your feeble heart
Sever your life holding your breast
Cherish the silence for Death grants no rest

In the Forest of Shadows
The autumn shrills alone and weeps
In the depths of shivered earth
Death in life shall arise

Sleep as you descend and fly away beyond
The earth's crimson soul forgotten by god
Unheeded dreams in nightmares abound
As the flesh wither and fall to the ground

Serenity entails your empty shell
As divine grace granted salvation
In the likeness of Death as a soul without
Await the last birth of Creation

Hidden from disgrace
Borne of Damnation
The golden trumpet heralds
The rising of unlife

In this damned Twilight of the final Apocalypse
A rose shall never be born
Track Name: Phases Of Death
Though it contains no lyrical content
Phases of Death wraps the dying process
in an envelop of sound representative of
what one might experience when confronted
with ones mortality.
Track Name: Wall Of Darkness
The depths of nothing drown my soul
Caverns of deception open from below
Left alone with the emptiness to fill the void
Anger is the sedative to soothe my mind

Compulsion to destroy the existence of oneself
Holding onto the elements of a fading sanity
Darkening surroundings of a deluded mind
Forever trapping reason inside

Pillars of hatred support eternity
Wall of darkness mirrors my destiny

Light fading to grey
Life drains out
Future led astray
Past erased to black
Lost hope of happiness
Found less in death
Had a chance for life
Lost hope of happiness
Found less in death
Had a chance for life
Now it is gone
Track Name: Soulless Extinction
Mourning has broken
Life is fading
Falling to pits
In endless despair

Awakening of eternity
Sleeping with eyes open
Betrayed of sanity
Cut no bleeding

Strength exhausted
Soulless extinction
Strength exhausted
Soulless extinction

Screaming out in pain
But no one hears your pleas
Shattered in your life
You passing by in time
Scarred in your mind
Where are your fatal wounds
Silence for your piece
Insanity kills you
Insanity kills you
Track Name: Possession
A grave to shade the frozen day
In cold desertion with shallow names
A soul born dead and cast unto flames
In shameless play to retrieve her way

A frost so pale in softened rain
In casted stone not chisled away
A virtue without lustre in clay
In graven silence and darkened pain

A forgotten stream by an unknown grave
In gifted silence a name betrayed
A barren dream asleep in hate
In mourning dreams denied in rage

A flight of woes in sickness reign
In darkness shunned of mortal saves
A hinded sight such wretched craves
In forlorn lust she sat in grace

A burden onto Hell's dark path
The frost of life in darkness sat
A heart of dust, a soul of lack
The sombre danse from which she laughed

A fallen god to ice so black
The deamon sighs in fractured glass
A silhouette of flame so vast
The eyes of felled Death stared back

A sigh from which thy life attacked
The dead declared offsane impasse
A season of the unknown craft
The plague from which thy death begat

A frightened earth with molten cracks
The stillness of the fire's cast
A fortune of the broken mask
The face upon defiantly smashed
