Track Name: Kerberos
With the shovel in my hands
I dig a shallow grave

Yet another hole
For yet another corpse
And yet always the same…
They won’t stay dead!

I stride across the graveyard at night
Driven to madness by their voices
“Help us… help us… help us… Kerberos…”

Yet another hole
For yet another corpse
And yet always the same…
They won’t stay dead!

Their screams ring in my ears
Whispers creep through the dark
“Let us go… let us go… let us go…”

Kerberos…
Hear us!
Kerberos…
Unearth us!
Kerberos!!!
Track Name: Thanatos
Hear me, oh Death
My light is fading
The underworld beckons me
Guide me to the stygian river

Son of night
Son of darkness
Brother of sleep
Thanatos

From beyond the veil
You reach for my soul

Gentle god of death
I must repay
The time that I borrowed
Take it, take everything
Track Name: Hades
Feeble shadows, beings without will
Abandon hope, when you enter here

Follow the guide of souls
To the river Styx
Charon expects your obolus
Or roam the shore eternally

Cross the river, pass Kerberos
Await your final judgment
In the realm without a sun
The place no one wants to go

Aiakos, Minos, Rhadamanthys
The judges have chosen your path

Will it be Elysium?
Or the plains of Asphodelos?
Maybe even Tartaros…
Hades welcomes a new soul
Track Name: Ascension
The beast has awoken
Strengthened by hate
Foolish mankind
Blind until the end

The downfall was quickened
By our ignorance
Greed and power
Grew beyond control
… beyond control

Ascension
Thunderous roar
Ascension
Tear down the gates
Ascension
Reach for the sky
Ascension
Purge mankind

Civilization swept away
Consumed by a torrent of flames
No divine intervention
This is man-made hell

- Chorus -

No salvation
No hope
Relentless agony
Eternal death
…eternal death

- Chorus -
Track Name: Elegy of the Dead
Can you see me roam across the barren lands?
An endless journey since the dawn of time.
Cleansing the earth from human parasites,
Mesmerized by morbid serenades.

I am Death incarnate
Called into being
Summoned by the songs of the fallen
The elegy of the dead

In your desperation you take anything,
To fill that god-shaped hole in your head.
Waging war and taking lives,
In the name of dogmatic misconception.

I am Death incarnate
Called into being
Summoned by the songs of the fallen
The elegy of the dead

Wailing chants howl through the aeons,
Just a murmur to the ears of the living.
Pouring in as dissonant melodies,
From the endless swarm of the dead.

I am Death incarnate
Called into being
Summoned by the songs of the fallen
The elegy of the dead
Track Name: Cerebral Dissonance
Cerebral dissonance
Festering

Your delusion is terrifying
All sense of judgment is lost
Flawless conception of lunacy
Feeding my exasperation

Cerebral dissonance winding and twirling
A fool’s paradise inside your head

Lost in the fog, stumble ahead
Crushed by the weight of the real world
Try to escape the horror of life
Crawl back into your shell!

Cerebral dissonance winding and twirling
A fool’s paradise inside your head

Indoctrinated by the will of others
Rushing through the haze of faith
Bound by rules and obligations
A slave to the written word!

Your delusion is terrifying
All sense of judgment is lost
Flawless conception of lunacy
Feeding my exasperation

Cerebral dissonance winding and twirling
A fool’s paradise inside your head
Track Name: Crimson Moon
Lunar eclipse
Projecting ominous signs
Sinister inception
Of the wicked festival

Distant light - fading away
Day shall break - no more

Dreadful congregation, rising after nightfall
-
Harbinger of doom, ascending crimson moon

Storm of death is upon us
Bearing the mark of sacrifice
Eternal damnation is at hand
Forever engulfed in the abyss

Distant light - fading away
Day shall break - no more

Demise of daylight
Releasing hellish spawns
Ferocious feast of souls
Guided by a crimson moon

Distant light - fading away
Day shall break - no more

Ascension of eternal night
Landscape draped in jet-black gloom
Light and hope soon forgotten
Blackened sky forevermore!
