Demoncy

Risen from the Ancient Ruins tracks

Lyrics


1. The Obsidian Age Of Ice

FROM CASTLE WALLS FROZEN
IN THE LANDS OF WINTER
THE COLD WINDS WHISPER
A FORGOTTEN SONG
A HYMN OF THE DARK FOREST LANDS
AND DEEP WINTER SNOW
THAT TOUCHES THE SOUL
OF THE MIGHTY RAVEN
THAT FLIES HIGH ABOVE THE LANDS BELOW
AS A SYMBOL OF DEATH AND DARKNESS
DARK WARRIORS ARISE FROM THEIR GRAVES
CLAWING THROUGH THE FROZEN EARTH
TO STORM THE LANDS IN HATRED AND WAR
THROUGH THE FALLING SNOW THEY MARCH
ACROSS THE COLD WINTER LANDSCAPE
ALL SHALL FALL TO THE FROSTED STEEL
OF THEIR SWORDS
BATHED IN THE BLOOD OF FROZEN HEARTS
THAT COATS THE BEAUTIFUL WHITE SNOW
THE FALLEN BECOME A FEAST
FOR WOLVES FROM THE FOREST OF ICE
THAT HOWL THEIR FURY
TO THE WANING MOON
OF THE OBSIDIAN AGE OF ICE

[LYRICS: IXITHRA, LORD OF THE SYLVAN SHADOWS]
[& SYNVORLATH, LORD OF THE ANCIENT MOON]




2. Risen From The Ancient Ruins

BLACKENED SPIRES OF DEMONIC SHRINE
RISE FROM ANCIENT RUINS FORGOTTEN IN TIME
A CASTLE THAT ONCE STOOD
ON DARK STONE MOUNTAINSNOW ONLY GHASTLY SPECTERS GUARD
THESE LONELY HALLS OF CONTEMPT
FOR ALL OF HUMANITY
AND MY HATRED IS AS COLD AS DEATHAS I LIE IN MY TOMB
FROZEN FOREVER...
COUNTLESS CENTURIES HAVE PASSED
AND THE SPIRITS OF OLD HAVE BECOME GHOSTS
THAT SLOWLY RISE ABOVE THEIR GRAVES
ONLY TO FALL AND BE FORGOTTEN ONCE MORE,
BUT STILL I WAIT
AS ANCIENT WARRIORS GUARD MY SOUL
IN THIS OBLIVION OF SNOW AND ICE
AWAITING MY REBIRTH
AND ON THIS NIGHT
OF DARKEST WINTER COLD
THE MOON'S LIGHT COVERS
MY ASCENDING THRONE
IN IT'S PALE UNEARTHLY GLOW
AND I CLAW MY WAY
THROUGH THE EARTH
TO WALK AGAIN
THESE LANDS OF SORROW
SPREADING MY CURSE
AN INFINITY OF DARKNESS

[LYRICS: IXITHRA, LORD OF THE SYLVAN SHADOWS]




3. Empire Of The Fallen Angel

BEYOND THE SUN WHERE THE MOON SHINES ETERNAL
AND THE NIGHT IS FOREVER OBSCURED IN SHADOW
THE LANDS ARE COLD AND FROZEN IN ICE
MAJESTIC IN BEAUTY AND FILLED WITH SORROW
CHILLING WINDS CUT THROUGH THE MOUNTAINS AND FORESTS
BARREN AND WITHERED, EMBRACED BY WINTER
DARKENED SKIES MIRROR THE BLACKENED SOIL
WHERE WALKS THE MOST BEAUTIFUL OF ANGELS
WHERE WALKS THE MOST DREADFUL OF DEVILS
IN A REALM MORE BEAUTIFUL THAN A THOUSAND HEAVENS
CAST AWAY FOR THE CRIMES OF ENDLESS PRIDE
BUT CONTENTED IN THE ENTHRONEMENT OF YOUR OWN IMAGE
IN STILL AND MURKY POOLS MAY YOU DREAM FOREVER
GAZING INTO THE ENDLESS DEPTHS OF MYSTERIES UNKNOWN
LIKE BLACK THORNS THAT TEAR THE FLESH IN EXQUISITE PLEASURE
YOUR KNOWLEDGE OF ALL THINGS BRINGS ENLIGHTENMENT COMPLETE
DESCEND INTO THIS NETHER REALM OF THE BLACK ABYSS
ASCENDING BEYOND FORBIDDEN THOUGHTS SCORNED
AS ONE INTO THE TRUTH OF DARKNESS AND LIGHT

[LYRICS: IXITHRA, LORD OF THE SYLVAN SHADOWS]




4. Sepulchral Wispers

THE MOON RISES FULL
IN THE DARK NIGHT SKY
CASTING SHADOWS UPON
THE SNOW COVERED TREES
THE WINTER WINDS BRING SOLITUDE
AN EERIE SILENCE THAT
HAUNTS MY SOUL
THE WINDSWEPT FROST
ENGULFS MY BODY
AS I WALK INTO
THE ENCHANTED WOODS
A BLANKET OF WHITE
COVERS MY PATH
AS I KNEEL BEFORE
THE ALTAR OF STONE
IN ROBES OF BLACK
I LIGHT CANDLES IN MEDITATION
SEALED WITHIN
THE SACRED SYMBOL
WITHIN THE MAGIC CIRCLE
I CALL TO THE FORCES BEYOND
SEPULCHRAL WHISPERS
PIERCE THE SILENCE
OF THE CHILL NIGHT AIR
DIABOLIC RITES
INVOKE THROUGH SPELL
THE DARKENED GATES
ENTRANCE TO ANOTHER DIMENSION
DARKNESS ENGULFS THE CANDLES' FLAMES
IN A REALM OF SHADOWS
DEMONIC SERVANTS OBEY MY COMMANDS

[LYRICS: IXITHRA, LORD OF THE SYLVAN SHADOWS]




5. My Kingdom Enshrouded In Necromantical Fog

I STAND TALL AMONGST THE ANCIENT TOMBS
REVELING IN THEIR LONG DEAD KNOWLEDGE
BREATHING DEEPLY OF THE PUTRESCENCE
I FEEL AT ONE WITH THE ELDER SPIRITS
THAT HAUNT THE DREARY PLACE
FLOWING CASCADES OF DEATHLY MIGHT
SWARM WITHIN MY MORTAL FRAME
TRANSFORMING MY ONCE HUMAN VISAGE
INTO A GHASTLY VISION OF CORRUPTION AND DECAY
KNOWLEDGE GARNERED FROM THE LONG DEAD
AIDS IN MY DESCENT TO THE HALLS OF DEATH
I, THE LORD OF DEATH,
ADORNED IN HIDEOUS TRAPPINGS
WITH DOMINION OVER ALL
THE TWISTED RULER OF AN INFINITE KINGDOM
ENSHROUDED IN NECROMANTICAL FOG
AMIDST THE GHOULS I DWELL
IN A REALM OF MARBLE AND SOIL
MY LOYAL SUBJECTS LIE IN WAIT
OF THE DAY THAT I SHALL RISE FROM MY THRONE
AND CONQUER THE WORLD WITH PLAGUE

[LYRICS: SYNVORLATH, LORD OF THE ANCIENT MOON]
[& IXITHRA, LORD OF THE SYLVAN SHADOWS]




6. Blood Moon Of Naingoroth

UPON THE SHADOWY BLACK WINGS OF THE NIGHT
TRAVEL THE DARKEST OF OBSCURE CREATIONS
THEIR MOUTHS DRIPPING WITH THE BLOOD OF MORTALS
THEY SEE THROUGH EYES AS BLACK AS THE ENDLESS NIGHT SKY
THEIR RAZOR SHARP CLAWS ARE AS SCYTHES
THAT TEAR THROUGH HUMAN FLESH
AN ANCIENT EVIL BEYOND THE GRASP OF TIME
THAT DESCENDS UPON THE LAND SCOURGING THE EARTH
AND CONSUMING THE SOULS OF THE LIVING
SCREAMS OF THE DYING MERGE WITH THE HOWLING OF WOLVES
IN THE NIGHT TO THE FULL NORTHERN MOON
AS HORDES OF BATLIKE FORMS FLIT THROUGH THE AIR
SHARING IN THEIR ECSTASY
THROUGH THE EYES OF THE DEAD THE MOON TURNS CRIMSON
AS TORRENTS OF BLOOD CASCADE THE LANDS
SATURATING THE EARTH SO DEVOID OF LIFE
A CHALICE IS RAISED BY WITHERED HANDS
FROM THE SOIL OF THE BLACKENED LANDS
AND IT IS DRANK IN FULL
IN HONOR OF THE DARKEST TIMES

[LYRICS: IXITHRA, LORD OF THE SYLVAN SHADOWS]
[& SYNVORLATH, LORD OF THE ANCIENT MOON]




7. Into The Twilight Mists

ANCIENT SPIRITS CALL TO ME
THROUGH THIS FOREST OF TRANSLUCENT DREAM
LIKE A PASSAGE THROUGH DARK CRYPTS
UNHOLY PRAYERS SURROUND MY DISMAL DESCENT
SWIRLING MISTS PART REVEALING THE SACRED PATH
THE DUSK FADES INTO A SEA OF BLACK
GLOOMY SHADOWS LIE STILL AND SILENT
THE WHISPERING WINDS SO BITTER AND COLD
FOREVER SHALL I HAUNT THE NIGHT
MESMERIZED BY DARKENED SKIES
AND THE CALL OF THE RISING FULL MOON
INTO THE TWILIGHT MISTS
SO MYSTERIOUS AND DARK
AND THROUGH THIS DREARY HAZE
OF MELANCHOLIC BLISS
MY SOUL SHALL FLY FREE IN DARKNESS

[LYRICS: IXITHRA, LORD OF THE SYLVAN SHADOWS]




8. The Ode To Eternal Darkness

THE AFTERGLOW OF WHAT MAY LIE AHEAD
TAINTED WITH SO DEEP A RED
WITH SPARKS OF BLACK SHINING DIM
IN WHIRLING WINDS, SO TENDER, SO GRIM
SOULS ENTANGLED IN THE BRANCHES OF A DEAD TREE
SHATTERED DREAMS OF ONCE BEING FREE
SHINY WINGS ACROSS THE SILVERY MOON
DESCENDING UNTO THE TORTURED EARTH SOON
TAKE ME UP, I'M NOT WILLING TO STAY
AND CARRY, CARRY ME FAR AWAY
WHEN LEATHERY WINGS WITH GRACE CARESS
I'LL SOON BE REBORN IN DARKNESS...
SO WHERE ARE YOU HEADING TO NOW, BLACKEST OF ALL
WHOSE MADNESS CAN'T BE CALMED
BY ANY SECRET UNKNOWN REVEALED?
YOUR PRIDE A GLORIOUS HALO RADIATING LIKE THE DYING SUN
OVER THE NEVER ENDING DESERTS.
YOUR STRENGTH OF AIR, WATER, EARTH,
AND THE ALL CONSUMING FIRE.
AND YOUR DESPERATE BEAUTY IN THE EYES OF THE WILD...
THE FALLACY OF REVELATION,
OF CREATING A "BEAST"
SO DIFFERENT FROM WHAT WE KNOW OF YOU
ENSTRANGED VISIONS WILL NEVER
ENTER OUR HEARTS DEDICATED TO YOU
SHATTERED LIES WHO DOES NOT KNOW
SHATTERED BY HIS OWN CREATION,
ILLUSION COME TRUE
THE NIGHT IS OURS, THE NIGHT,
THE PALE MOON, AND THE STAR DESERT
PATHS THROUGH ICY MOUNTAINS
AND OVER BROKEN BRIDGES
GUIDED BY THE RADIATING LIGHT
NO ONE THERE TO FOLLOW WHO
DOES NOT FEEL
WHAT DRIVES US ON AND ON
BUT WILL BE LOST IN ETERNITY
THESE PATHS CAN ONLY
BE PASSED BY US
ALONE
THE NIGHT IS OURS, THE NIGHT,
THE PALE MOON, AND THE STAR DESERT
AS WE'VE BEEN CROUCHING
IN DARKEST PLACES FOR MILLENIUMS,
NOT TO BE SEEN BY THE MORTAL EYE...
AS WE'VE BEEN WITNESSING STARS DYING
AND SNOW COVERING ANY TRACES ONE MIGHT HAVE LEFT...
AS WE'VE REMAINED IN THE SHADOW'S EMBRACE BY NIGHT
WE'VE BEHELD A WORLD IN WHICH WE NEVER BELONGED
WE'VE KEPT OUR MYSTERIES IN OBSCURITY
OUR WORLDS OF THOUGHT AND EMOTION
OUR WISDOM AND MAGIC,
THE TRULY TRAGIC EXISTENCE IN THESE REALMS...
...WE ALWAYS KNEW THAT THIS
WOULD END
WE AWAIT OUR REBIRTH IN DARKNESS.
ETERNAL DARKNESS...

9. Night Song (Apocalyptic Dawn)

ANOTHER SUN SETS ON BALEFUL LANDS
TRANSMUTING INTO A CRIMSON ORB OF TRANSIENT WONDER
THE LAST OF IT'S WANING RAYS DIE
AS THE LADY OF THE NIGHT'S SONG STARTS ANEW
MY LADY OF DARKNESS
SHED THY EARTHLY GUISE,
SO THAT THE MEEK MIGHT SEE DESTRUCTION
AS BLACK TEARS RAIN FROM THE SKY
YOUR IMAGE IS SPLENDOR
GAIETY AMIDST DEATH
CLOSE NOW THY EBONY WINGS
AND STEAL THE WORLD'S DYING BREATH
RESPLENDENT IN SILVER, THE FIRST STRAINS OF HER EPIC OF WOE
ENTHRALL THE NOCTURNAL BEINGS DRAWN TO HER SIGHT
A DOLEFUL OPUS TO THE WONDERS OF NIGHT
ENVELOPED IN A SHROUD OF PAIN
HER SONG HAS REACHED CRESCENDO
AND HER DESCENT IS NEARLY COMPLETE
SHADOWS OF MAGIC ASCEND FROM DUSK
REVEALING THE MOON FOR ALL TO SEE
MY LADY OF DARKNESS
SHED THY EARTHLY GUISE,
SO THAT THE MEEK MIGHT SEE DESTRUCTION
AS BLACK TEARS RAIN FROM THE SKY
YOUR IMAGE IS SPLENDOR
GAIETY AMIDST DEATH
CLOSE NOW THY EBONY WINGS
AND STEAL THE WORLD'S DYING BREATH
