1. ITERATIONS OF I

Interminable emphasis
Ephemeral to fade
My gratification
Lurking in the blood, like plague
Eerie hauntings recrudesce
Bedeviled sanctify
To perish unexplained
Left to rot, iterations of - I

Reduced to ashes, scattered dust
I will betray all of your trust
I am the knife that stabbed your back
And broke you on the fucking rack

Iconoclast to tear those sails
Hammer cruciFICTION nails
Born unholy, hybridize
Seven sins upheld with pride
Portent returns
Defy intrusion unconcerned
Existence a vital lust
In opulence I leave you crusts - I

Reduced to ashes, scattered dust
I will betray all of your trust
I am the knife that stabbed your back
And broke you on the fucking rack

Kneel once more, the Death Church temple
Your immolation a poor example
Play the victim, feed that fire
Immortal, I'm the purifier
Your flesh, is weak
And mentally it's looking bleak
Your flesh, is weak
And mentally it's looking bleak
Shattered trust from my misdeed
Delude yourself, let your flesh bleed - Bleed!
Perpetuate my dynasty
Assassination's reign
Chaperone to torment
Herald of pain
Future's past, temporal peace
Never got your sweet release
Repossession, battle cry
You've always seen that I am I
I am the thorn within your side
The hydra you can not abide
Here to plunder your last breath
I am the portent, I am death


2. SCRIPTURES IN SCARLET

One incantation summons
From Kandarian scrolls
Out of isolation's plane
Begin devouring whole

Scarlet script recite
Invoking acolytes
Possession will reprise
Deadite colonise

Iron blood scent
Recalls lament
Feral bloodbath
Reduced to Ash
Reanimate deceased
The dead to be unleashed

Incorporeal portal
Obsidian plane bespeak
Diabolis antiquity
Malignant threshold breached

Scarlet script recite
Invoking acolytes
Possession will reprise
Deadite colonise

Revive and enslave
Beyond the grave
This mortal coil
Now under soil
Iniquitous goal
To swallow your soul

Swallow this!

Scriptures in Scarlet
Deception opaque
Withhold the invocation
Or attend to that which wakes

Undead mechanisms
Push the aesthetic
Hail to the King, baby
With Chainsaw and Boomstick

Scarlet script recite
Invoke upon this night
Possession will reprise
Deadite colonise

Feral bloodbath
Reduced to Ash
Opening maw
Heralds the war
Reanimate deceased
The Evil Dead unleashed - Unleashed!


3. THE CROOKED MAN

An errant brain in overdrive
I could suffocate alone
This mortal seam is crooked now
Identity a disfigured drone

Abandon it beyond
Reality that breeds
Serpentine is spawned
The Crooked Man, a legend that bleeds!

Regenerate the deviant
Or leave myself for dead
A Black Flame now to light my way
So I can burn all the bridges ahead

The sinister baroque
Turmoil left to seethe
Wrought asunder, head to hip
Yet the Crooked Man, the legend that breathes
That's me!

A broken spirit healed uneven
Two halves malaligned
Mental overlord committing treason
To the darkened depths I'm now consigned

The Crooked Man soon reigning free

Such dreams to dread arise
Hellbent evolution
A different man alive
Cognate execution

Sinuous past has cracked
Lines on show are token
Unstable mind released
Imperfection broken

The Crooked Man reborn

Rambling and warped
Berserk and deranged
My tortuous facade
A personality exchanged
Never lie to myself
Limit that distinction
I'm yet the Crooked Man
From now until extinction
Extinction!


4. STORMCROW

Many are its names
A tempest squall to blind
Borne on vapid wings
Moulder of death inclined
Herald of disaster
Oncoming grief bestowed
Exalt triumphant
The rise of the Stormcrow

No one sheltered from its wrath
From paupers to the kings
Rancid crest unfurled
Stormcrow spreads its wings
Spreads it's wings

Final hour strikes this flight of dread
Extolling doom
Precursor to behold ruin
To the grave, from the womb

When the thunder rages
Crowing in the night
Yield to its attrition
For its might is right
Might is right

Last frozen dawn on life's plateau
Screaming through the driven snow
Stormcrow!
Stormcrow!

Black prophet foreshadows
Your intended gloom
A knell to chime a solemn stroke
Prepare the tomb
Murder of Stormcrows
Corvus carrion breath
Black wings envelop
Dark carriage to your death


5. PROGENITORS OF A NEW PARADIGM

Progenitors awaken
New paradigm now to behold
Purebred creations
Fetid DNA evolving old
A higher class of villain
Anti-heroes obliterate
Future incarnations rise
To exterminate

The Hierarchy - Infection prime
Progenitors of a new Paradigm

One driven obsession
To subjugate
An empire to build
A regime spawned a potentate
Abandoning emotions
Faceless drones deploy
No resistance!
Exterminate, annihilate, destroy

The Hierarchy - Infection prime
Progenitors of a new Paradigm

Recreate the species
To stand alone
Now to face the bronze
To regain their throne

Progenitors awaken!
Progenitors - Obliteration!

Testimony awakens
Conflict has its crimes
Raging across history
War's aftermath in time
One vile supremacy
Lost acts of attrition
Strategists eternal
The science of the mission

The Hierarchy - Infection prime
Progenitors of a new Paradigm

The alien elite
Outright manipulations
So viciously you're obsolete
Total extermination!

Progenitors awaken!
Progenitors - Obliteration!
Obliteration!


6. RABID CARNALITY

The moon demands the blood
This desire, slake its thirst
Under lunar loyalty
It's my progeny, my world

A damnable life and death
Wretched curse appeased
Consuming hearts, hot and raw
Worship the disease

The underdog genealogy
Know nothing of my deeds
Cavalier, man of my word
But by the moon I'll feed

A damnable eternal life
Preservation's creed
Lunatic with sickening lust
Rhapsodical force feed

Terminology's submission: Behemoth

Stalking through the dark
No conscience for my crimes
Worshipping the covert
To hunt again a thousand times

A damnable life and death
Wretched curse appeased
Consuming hearts, hot and raw
You'll worship my disease
My disease!


7. IN OUR HANDS, THE SCARS

Corruption and disfiguration
Those serpentine debauched
In retrogressive torment
Claw at the scabbed Gordian knot

Blistering skin, burns from within
Cremate and char
Composite death, draw your last breath
In our hands, the scars

In the factor of decomposition
Lies salvation for the dead
The stench of memories remain
A gaunt tenuous thread

Arising flame, of a violent bane
The morning star
With the drawing of blood, unleash the flood
In our hands, the scars

Unity of one
Twin bastard son
In our hands, the scars

Unity of one
Twin bastard son
In our hands, the scars
In our hands, the scars...

The mind conspires to rot in fury
Plague on the denizen
When the intellect grinds to a halt
Set ablaze the tyrant... time and again
Fire up the forge, as leeches gorge
Like dying stars
Suture the skin, lock them within
In our hands, the scars

Unity of one
Twin bastard son
In our hands, the scars

Unity of one
Twin bastard son
In our hands, the scars
In our hands, the scars...


8. TEAR OFF THESE WINGS

Blind mouthpiece chants words to betray
I inherit angels' wings, pulverized and decayed

Condemn swine to drown in misery
I never asked for this
Atavistic haunting dreams, burn
At the sake of bliss
Fools begging for their plight
Never break their chains
Crusaders for a lie engorged
Upon these rotten remains

Tear off these fucking wings
For piety is worthless

Shattered - Self-righteous to impale
Reclaim - Once stolen power regain
They'll call for glorious war - our saviour fell
The Adversary bete noire rules in Hell
Indomitable

There is no fear, there is only will

Never kneel - Meet executioners as one
Emperors lie weeping in the dust
Banish me and I'll always return
Defame me - Unbloodied, unbowed, I'll watch you burn
Agonize me

My will shall never break
We are legion
We are the sea in which you'll drown
Eternal
Predominance is reigning down
Down... Down... Down...


9. EMBRACE THE KILL

No more fear...

Embrace the kill!

A monument to flaying bodies
Restrains shattered minds
Perversity symbolic murder
Intellect of evil so refined

No one left to bury bodies
Madness in the burning fields of hate

Embrace the kill!

Scarce removed from burning witches
Atrocities I shall collate
Flames that mourn the death of reason
Remorseless inhuman race

No seven sins to condemn us
Wrath, Pride, Envy, Gluttony, Greed, Sloth

And howl for Lust

Am I not human?
Human animal's thirsts and drives?
Pause to savour this only life
A prelude to the nightmare ride

Unconcerned with sanctimony
Truth is a stark blackened tongue
Masquerade hostility
The dead men you are down among


10. NEVERWHEN

Vast tracts of isolation
Weaponizing time
Laid to waste and conquered
Neverwhen live and/or die

States of flux
Lambasted to the core
Finality's insight
A Neverwhen of war

Paradox is tearing
Time and again
Engines of war that drive
The Neverwhen

Darkest hour before the dawn
Arachnid degradations
A Neverwhen of weaponry
Quantum-esque creations

Outside reality
Locked out time technology
Phasing throughout existence
In evolution's reticence

Paradox is tearing
Time and again
Engines of war that drive
The Neverwhen
The Neverwhen

Within the heart of carnage
Knows Neverwhen to feed
Mass potential, resurrection
To rise again and bleed

Controlling reality
Neverwhen's mentality
Existing in the now and then
Forevermore the Neverwhen

Paradox is tearing
Time and again
Engines of war that drive
The Neverwhen
The Neverwhen


11. THE BLIGHT AT THE END

Decimate spurious idols
Screaming in demise
Apocryphal apocalypse
Lords of the deep arise

From within the chasm
Crawling from the gorge
Arising out of darkness
The fires of evil forged

All-seeing eyes left unsighted
No Rubicons to now transcend
Aimlessly groping through darkness
The blight at the end

Tunnel vision dwindles
Perception fades to grey
Afterimage of what was lost
To ocular decay

All-seeing eyes left unsighted
No Rubicons to now transcend
Aimlessly groping through darkness
The blight at the end

In your shattered sanity, Old Ones arise!

The planet bathes in death
In reversal of life's light
No strength within the dark
Covert forces bleak foresight

Mesmeric chants of supplication
Leaves forlorn slaves enrapt
Open wide the Old One's gate
Human minds are snapped

Minds attuned to worship
Now kneel in slavery
Doctrines of the Great Old Ones
The rituals of R'lyeh


12. WE ARE LEGION

On the night of twelve, all Devils drawn
The prophecy intoned
Adamantine gates pitched wide
Heralds return to the throne

Cursed god-adorers deny the beast in man
Tooth and claw
Of Hell possessed, alien elite
Legion in arms to war - War!

Vulpine serpents machinate
Aggrandize alacrity
Self-idolators, paragons
De facto diversity

We are Legion
We are the horde
Our own gods
The overlords
We are Legion
We are the horde
Our own gods
The overlords

We are Legion, we are the horde

Myriad countless divisions
Stand our ground as one
Regimental throng of force
Battalions that won
Doubt will grant mental release
Not truth to set you free
Don't deny the inner beast
Unleash Gerasene

The Legion of the beast
Welcome to our feast
The ritual begins
We are Legion, we are kin

Open wide history's vault
Herd culture cast away
Regenerated gestalt
We are not blind as they say

Wolfpacks hunting loyally
Cerberus Hellhounds
We are Legion, many
We are Legion crowned

The Legion of the beast
Welcome to our feast
The ritual begins
We are Legion, we are kin

Legion!

"Which way is he, in the name of sanctity?
If all the Devils of Hell be drawn in little
And Legion Himself possessed him.
Yet, I'll speak to him."
(Shakespeare's Twelfth Night, Act 3 Scene 4.)
