Track Name: Mortem Iudex
Behold, an abomination of man to stand tall at my left hand
and deceive the weak believers of gods and remind them of their mortality
Hereby marked with eternity's sign - a creation beyond the divine

Evil shall reign

Now you will evolve into nothing but pure perfection
Cleanse the world by natural selection
by the virtue of what we have done
The survival of the fittest has begun

By your hands unholy bloods shall unite
Deliver us to a world where faith is blinded by existential fright
Grasp the monolith of the black reality
and make us all obey the darkness, that is infinity
Track Name: Shores of Oblivion
Conjured to the shores of oblivion where darkness reigns
Apprehend desolation caught in chasms of nothingness
Hearken to neglected ruptures convoked on these shores
You can’t denounce the destruction wrought from your own hands

Feed the flames of ruination
Follow the defiled caverns of pervaded sickness
Feed the flames of damnation
Be the minion to be summoned by our call

Distinguish realities from our wild illusions
Discerning grief through a terrified gaze
Bereft of consciousness as we commence your obligations
Auscultate our will through the lungs of fallen foes

So here, feed on my lies, obey my truth
You shall not lead you must follow me
So hear me out as i order you to slaughter them
Fear your god
Fear me

Extinction caused by failure to interpret our commands
Neglected and discarded
Hebetude and lethargy - a tremendous felony
Omission will lead to your impending death

Heed the call
Track Name: The Universal Culmination
A vast cosmic implosion devours celestial beings and rips apart structures of infinity
By gravity caused: eruptions in the crust
Astral creations shall soon turn into dust…

Death - the universal culmination
All hope is lost, embraced by devastation
Lose faith, this time there’s no salvation

Behold, the consumption is total
No living thing shall flee as the universe revels in gluttony
False hope is abandoned, no lies shall set us free
Holy houses lie in ruins, no lies shall set you free…

Death - the universal culmination
Our world is lost, destruction - no creation
Lose faith, this time there’s no salvation
The end is nigh
Death shows its domination
Have faith, that this time there is no salvation
Track Name: Mistress of the Soil
Lured into obscurity, bound up and slowly dragged along
the trails leading towards a place far from sacred walls
A burial ground: ancient, known for cries and calls
Tied to a burning stake you soon enter the darkened halls

Sacrificed in flames

Summoned above a shallow grave
Chants are heard in the darkness
Awaiting the dead we all kneel in awe and behold as the soil moves

The flames suddenly goes out but the body still conforms into ashes
The chants crescendous and slowly something emerges from the ground

Summoned above a shallow grave awaiting our long lost Mistress
Pale hands are emerging as we kneel in awe and behold a delirious sight

Bereft of her peaceful sleep just like she was once bereft of her life
Our Mistress on exhumed corpses feeds
But this is no delirium, we are far away from sacred walls
We have followed the trails of death to a place known for cries and calls
She approaches slow and we beg her from our very core:
“Oh, Mistress. Deliver us to what we are yearning for”

Summoned above a shallow grave
One by one we are beheaded
Ceremonial murder, a deed of the undead and into eternal dark nothingness we tread
Our Mistress howls and then proceeds to crawl back down into her grave
