1. THIRTEEN BELLS OF DOOM

(Instrumental)




2. BLOOD RUNS FROM THE ALTAR

Blood runs from the altar
Unholy rite of sacrifice
The wrath of the lord
Invoked by the blasphemous

Welcome to our black mass
Blood runs from the altar
IA Lucifericon

Blood runs from the altar
Upon the altar of lies
A virgin which blood
Will be spilled for the one below

IA Lucifericon

Blood runs from the altar
The masses start to sing
The words of the bible
Inverted for king

Welcome to our black mass
Blood runs from the altar
IA Lucifericon

Blood runs from the altar
The priest is now in trance
Black art, sacrifice
He raises the dagger again

IA Lucifericon

Blood runs from the altar
Unholy rite of sacrifice
The wrath of the lord
Invoked buy the blasphemous




3. SUBMIT TO DEATH

Cold winds of hades
Whispers your name
A call from hell
That drives you insane
When the reaper
Reaches out for your hand
Eternal secrets of death
Lies behind

Submit to death

Trapped within
The never ending flames of hell
Possessed chasm
Hollowed by spell
As you’re laid to rest
Within your grave
Your soul is bought
Now you’re his slave

Submit to death

A strange shadow
Unlocks the forbidden gate
Hideous darkness
Monstrous spawn of death

Now the bells
For you they chime
Time to suffer
Life is your crime
The flames of hell
Suffocates your very last breath
As the embrace of evil
Welcomes you to your death

Submit to death




4. FALL INTO DECAY

Cast out from the living world
Violently decomposed
The horror that you feel
Unfortunately is real
Visions beyond
Greet me with a cold embrace
I slowly slip away
As putrefaction sets in

What's left for the autopsy?
A pile of rotting flesh
The coroner completes the ceremony
And reveals the cause of decay

Decay - I fall onto decay
Decay - My body rots away

I slowly slip into
A realm beyond my senses
The last light slips away
My decay is complete
My soul is cold
I'm cast into the void
Visions beyond
Greet me with a cold embrace

A slowly slip into
A realm beyond my senses
As I fall into
The depths of infernal decay
I fall into
The depths of infernal decay




5. SEVEN GATES

Farewell you beloved earth and skies
Blessed forever you will be
For when she began gently her dance
The fair below the crystal moon
It all into nothingless fell
If hardly a bit the eye will recall
If once again chaos enters
...her face so pale and noble
With it's twilight, dawn, earth and skies
Our world still had a meaning...
...It to the dancer once gave life




6. ANGELS BLOOD

Armageddon's come with the truth

The truth collapsing in for your tear-filled eyes
Armageddon's rising, the light has now fled
To conquer the minds of man
With the banality of the truth
And break us with our own vanity
As the hordes invade the halls of heaven

"Foreseeing the fall of myself
My mind it started to revolt"

Armageddon's come with the truth

"I heard the tales of the bitterness and hate
Of when he invades and begins to reign
It caresses your soul
Awakens the thirst for knowledge
Armageddon's now rising
The distorted truth appears"

The merciless servants of the lord expelled from heaven
Assault the pearly gates to spill pure angels blood
His growing shadow covers the world
The angel fallen claims his revenge on god
As the creatures born in darkness storm the pearly gates
To spill pure angels blood

"Call me whatever you want, but I'm your fate
My armies I've sent to haunt beyond the seven gates
The creatures of darkness
And the demons from my home
Created in hate towards god
It's time for our revenge"

"I saw the signs and received
The voice of armageddon
A twisted world of blackness, cries and blood"

The truth collapsing in for your tear-filled eyes
Armageddon's rising, the light has now fled
To conquer the minds of man
With the banality of the truth
And break us with out own vanity
As the hordes invade the halls of heaven

The merciless servants of the lord expelled from heaven
Assault the pearly gates to spill pure angels blood
His growing shadow covers the world
The angel fallen claims his revenge on god
As the creatures born in darkness storm the pearly gates
To spill pure angels blood

"I heard the tales of the bitterness and hate
Of when he invades and begins to reign
It caresses your soul
Awakens the thirst for knowledge
Armageddon's now rising
The distorted truth appears"

"Foreseeing the fall of myself
My mind it started to revolt
A twisted world of blackness, cries and blood"

"Centuries of anger
And a long wait
Fills us with lust
Nihilism and thirst for blood
We will cease the life
Of holy weak symbols
And take over and rule in blood




7. NOCTURNAL BLASPHEMIES

Come with me – into the dark

Nocturnal, born of evil
And the seed of death
Through diabolic breeding
On a virgin womb

Blasphemy
My prayers answered finally
The answer came forth
Through the mist

Separate reality
Nocturnal Blasphemy

To the notes
Of buried blasphemy
From the elder earth
Rise the hellish beast

Damnation left forsaken
In a crypt below
The total lie of god
Now unfolds

Nocturnal blasphemies

The days of god are over
And the sun, like any other Sabbath,
Goes down into the sea
Running into the very last twilight
My faith in my soul,
My mind and my wisdom goes on

My life was meant to be
Eternal blasphemy
To blaspheme against
The church and Jehovah

A separate reality
Deep within my mind
In league forever
With horned divine

Nocturnal blasphemies




8. SPAWN OF AZATHOTH

Summoned through inverted signs of magick
I am the symbol of supreme evil
I am raised in the plague of sin
And the fluids of hell runs through me

I am divine
Demon from hell
My time finally
To prevail

I am released through the incantations
And the harmonies within the song of spells

I am the spawn of Azathoth
The embodiment of absolute evil
I am hell itself within you
And my wrath will swallow you whole

I am the spawn of the seed
Planted within your soul
I am the voice inside you
Telling you what to do

Woman, meet thy destiny
And give birth to me, your son
The voice within your sinful mind
Let me tear your soul to pieces

I make you writhe in torment
Speaking my words with your tongue

As my part of the deal is kept
I claim your soul as mine




9. INCANTATION

Beyond inferno lies my sanctuary

Bone, blood, flesh and sinews
Spell and spirit bind anew

Their deaths so cruel and macabre
Keep its givers safe from harm

Incantations, chantings & repetitions
I call the abysmal depths
For thee to ascend

Let the laws which govern all things
Not so lightly be dismissed
Let the ones who rule the chaos
With a fresher death be kissed

Incantation
Incantation

A terrible invocation addressed to secret gods
Beyond the mortal spheres
In an aura of evil, incantation

Let thy almighty powers
Knowing no boundaries
In a morbid shade of presence
Travel through my soul

Arch-angel, prince of hell
Awake thy sleeping servants of the dead

Master, invoke thee, lord of chaos
Here is a soul for thee to claim
Repay my loyalty
I invoke thee, prince of darkness
Hear my - incantation

As my life now it ends
Fulfill this one last wish of mine
Release thy divine wrath
To fulfill our darkest dreams

Now as my blood is spilled for the last time
I toast in it with thee
My last words, as I die, is my incantation

Hear my infernal chanting
As I open the gates to your dimension
Hear me, I beg thee,
Spewing forth from the pits of death

Incantation
Incantation

Beyond inferno
My sanctuary

As my soul is engulfed
By the flaming inferno
My hands grasp at the straws of life
As it eventually fades away

Within the burning flames
My soul now dwells forever more
Tormented, but in peace
I am by thy side, prince of darkness

Incantation
Incantation

Covered in the burning flames
The world as you knew it is no more




10. CHURCH OF THE PENTAGRAM

"Humanity - a fallen angel, wings stained with blood"

Out of the abyss, upheaveled as with fire
Risen from below to crush your righteous reign
Govern those who govern, by the works of Satan
Pledge allegiance to the powers that be
Bow to the coven of Hades, covenant of flame
Communion of fire, the church of the pentagram

We are the initiated ones in whose veins the hatred flows
In whose veins the sulphur burns
And in whose minds is death

The mad with sin they call forth and hail the sign
Now destroy this creation of god

By the black, infernal Styx they swear that dreadful oath
Which binds the underworld
Allegiance sworn to the flags of war
Damnation so pure, on blackened wings, spew forth

Church of the pentagram - blasphemous sons of hell
Church of the pentagram - Satan rise!

A sickening rush, high on pain
As black blood tears through tortured veins
Hordes of the undead awake
Their suffering to be avenged
Govern those who govern, by the works of Satan
Pledge allegiance to the powers that be
Bow to the coven of Hades, covenant of flame
Communion of fire, the church of the pentagram

We are the initiated ones in whose veins the hatred flows
in whose veins the sulphur burns
and in whose minds is death

The mad with sin they call forth and hail the sign
Now destroy this creation of god

By the black, infernal Styx they swear that dreadful oath
Which binds the underworld
Allegiance sworn to the flags of war
Damnation so pure, on blackened wings, spew forth

Church of the pentagram - blasphemous sons of hell
Church of the pentagram - Satan rise!

The infernal hordes awake, angels fall down from the sky
Into the pit of hell they shall burn
To perish in the flames
Forever imprisoned beyond the gates of hell

Church of the pentagram - blasphemous sons of hell
Church of the pentagram - Satan rise!




11. RTPPED FROM THE CROSS

The wind is screaming
Around the empty cross
And blood is spread
Across the sand
Echoes of choirs
Choirs of mourners
Chimes through the silence
On the hill

Ripped from the cross
The nails on the cross
Were covered with blood
Ripped from the cross

A procession of men
In black coats
And soldiers on march
To Golgatha
In the air
The presence of evil
Crosses lie broken
In the dirt
