1. Agga - Prelude to Time (7:55)
Prelude to Time

Apsu (chanted)

From the deep he arose, the waters have come to life
Nothing to one, the universe has come to rise
From the primal waters, he fashioned Tiamat, his divine wife
In due time she bore the first gods, each in their due time.....

Before the gods had been named, Lahmu came forth
Before the gods had been seen, Lahamu came forth
Before the gods had been known, Anshar came forth
Before the gods had been destined, Kishar came forth

Aeons drifted by, onward across the seas of time
The wandering destinies, consternation evocation
In time their son came to be, Lord Anu, supreme destiny
Over many more ages, Nudimmud, first born son came to be

The lord of magick has come to life
Stronger may it grow over time.

Even more Aeons rolled onward, without a created destiny
Wandering back and forth, consternation growing in the belly of the mother
Their rebellious ways, perceived by Mummu Tiamat
The ascending of Apsu, to smite his rebelling children

The spells Apsu cast were extinguished
Sorcery of the Elder kind, the first deicide

The corpse of Apsu, became the abode of Nudimmud
The lord of magick, took in those ancient waters, source of all life
Mummu Tiamat, sensing something was amiss
Drifted back and forth, growing fury within

Her eyes were inflamed, vengeful nature in her gaze
She shrieked into the dark void, howl of a thousand deaths
Before her she called a legion into existence
Monsters of the ancient kind, primal in every light

The Viper, the Dragon, and the Winged Bull
The great Lion, The Mad-God and Scorpion Man
Mighty rabid Demons, Feathered Serpents and the Horse-man
Armed with weapons of sorcery and strength, divine cast

She then put Kingu in command of the legion, general of her divine army
The Tablets of Destiny were placed upon his chest
Word got back to the Elder Gods of their mothers intent
Time to summon a great warrior, from the infinite deep....

Enki, knowing the graveness of the matter
Sent a calling out to the furthest deep
Summoning from afar his son Marduk
To do battle with the Ancient cast, attack!

Enki armed his son with magick divine
A secret number, a secret name and a secret shape
With the disk of power he told his son,
Marduk, to meet Kingu in battle, ride his chariot of flame

A shout of might into the cosmos, Marduk sent shockwaves across the plane
The monsters of Tiamat's creation fell down and dead, away
All who remained was the mother Tiamat, alone among her wastes
She lunged at Marduk, poisonous gaze

With the disk of power she was put down and weak
Heaving a howling, splitting the boundaries of time and space
With a shout of a mighty spell Marduk subdued the mother
With a shot of the divine arrow her animation became undone....

Marduk took her head, and sliced it off....thus the heavens were borne
ZI DINGIR ANNA KANPA!
Marduk trampled upon her corpse....thus the earth was borne
ZI DINGIR KIA KANPA!
2. Agga - When the Tablets of Destiny Are Broken (5:49)
When the Tablets of Destiny are Broken



Cold sun, dying fast
Humanity loses its hold on sanity
Foresight, black dreams
Civilization dies in slow decay

Ancient curse, buried deep
Unearthed by years of apathy
Maniacal scene, bloody streets
Socially engineered savage new day

(Chorus)
Denial of the roots of civilization
Manipulation of the substance of history
Breeding lies, dark and blasphemous
Advancement stunted by the priests of madness

(Chorus 2)
Heresy, heresy - are the cries of these priests
As they attempt to break the tablets of destiny
Mockery, mockery - are the cries of the slaves
Blinded by the socially engineered dark dream

(Higher chorus 3 - Chanting Heresy)

Hang them who are guilty of heresy
Let them blow in the winds of decay
May their blood feed their arise
After the great fall of society

Silence the words of the heretics
Demean them into a slumber of apathy
Over time their silence paved the way
For the breaking of civilization

(Higher chorus 3; repeat - Chanting Mockery)

(Chorus 2)
Heresy, heresy - are the cries of these priests
As they attempt to break the tablets of destiny
Mockery, mockery - are the cries of the slaves
Blinded by the socially engineered dark dream

(Chorus)
Denial of the roots of civilization
Manipulation of the substance of history
Breeding lies, dark and blasphemous
Advancement stunted by the priests of madness

Now the end of civilization
When the tablets of destiny are broken
Broken.....
3. Agga - Flight of Suhgurim (4:41)
he Flight of Suhgurim

Under a waxing moon, deep in the lost hours of the night
Worshiping by divine fire, over the bowl of sacrifice
Chants to the stars times ten, calling forth to the Jupiterian power
Invocation of he who strikes fear in the heart of the cursed

I call to you Suhgurim
Come to me by the fire
The figure of wax awaits thee
To boil in the fire

Upon ancient astral winds, he descends from his starry abode
Like a blast from the abyss, a shadow of death bellowing
Inside my mind he takes seat, awaiting the fire in my sight
Flames of Gibil inside my soul, the sword forged to guide the rite....

The will, fiery in its nature, cascading through my soul
Like a wave of fury, focused, calculated, and painful
May the great Suhgurim feel this, let it fill him with wrath
Empowering his work, by the guidance of my will and his being
By the hand of the watcher shall Suhgurim be shown the way
Towards the heart of the sorcery that befell me painfully
As I chant the name of the names over the fire of divine sacrifice
The figure and figures of wax are cast into the purifying flames......

The smoke rises up high, black as the moonless night
The figure of wax melts away, just as the sorcerers spell does
In the flames the powers are consumed and cast away
The sorcerer is left with nothing, nothing to protect him from thy plague.......

Upon the wretched sorcerer
I cast the wrath of thee, Suhgurim!
May the touch of your scepter
Consume the sorcerer in your plague!

Ia zi dingir Suhgurim kanpa! (x10)
MASHSHADAR (growled final 4 times w/ above)

The will, fiery in its nature, cascading through my soul
Like a wave of fury, focused, calculated, and painful
May the great Suhgurim feel this, let it fill him with wrath
Empowering his work, by the guidance of my will and his being
By the hand of the watcher shall Suhgurim be shown the way
Towards the heart of the sorcery that befell me painfully
As I chant the name of names over the fire of divine sacrifice
The figure and figures of wax are cast into the purifying flames......
4. Erragal - Those ov Royal Blood (4:47)
where ashes meant to be faded
and water unveil the outward scene

when the sky caused to be shaded
and fire blinded the head of the unseen

the annonaki rised on field with an era of royal blood
darkened their sight with slumber
and crush their souls to stones

where Plague meant to be hunted
and souls engrave the flamed kneel

when the alter blood sunk to be chanted
and darkness slaughter the unbreakable steel

those ov royal blood have been begotten
where all beings drown to death
and death where mingled to heal
5. Erragal - Enuma Eliš (4:53)
e-nu-ma e-liš la na-bu-ú šá-ma-mu
When the sky above was not named,
šap-liš am-ma-tum šu-ma la zak-rat
And the earth beneath did not yet bear a name,
ZU.AB-ma reš-tu-ú za-ru-šu-un And the primeval Apsû, who begat them,
mu-um-mu ti-amat mu-al-li-da-at gim-ri-šú-un And chaos, Tiamat, the mother of them both,
A.MEŠ-šú-nu iš-te-niš i-?i-qu-ú-šú-un Their waters were mingled together,
gi-pa-ra la ki-is-su-ru su-sa-a la she-'u-ú And no field was formed, no marsh was to be seen;
e-nu-ma dingir dingir la šu-pu-u ma-na-ma
When of the gods none had been called into being.
6. Erragal - Shapash (4:36)
the all seeing eye that sees all
the spiritual sight that surounds the soul

stabbed with shining blades ov that foe
where melting the sun into blames of woe

shapash ... shapash ... shapash

wrath ov sun won't inherit ur essence
as the glowing eye would catch in distence

sechmet,sachat ,all the ruins of souls belongs to ra
as all the glory ov the 3rd light belong to us
7. Erragal - Kaspum Girru (4:19)
Ellum sespu kaspum girru Kashad gidim Xul! Ellum sespu kaspum girru Kashad Maskim Xul! Ellum sespu kaspum girru Kashad Gigim Xul! Ellum sespu kaspum girru Kashad Alla Xul!

Danatum kaspum girru sharakum sespu u emqum u asar su’ati dalkhu qamu!

Qamu amelnakru genii ,Qamu amelnakru zini Qamu, Qamu, Qamu!

Ellum sespu kaspum girru Kashad gidim Xul! Ellum sespu kaspum girru Kashad Maskim Xul! Ellum sespu kaspum girru Kashad Gigim Xul! Ellum sespu kaspum girru Kashad Alla Xul!

Melammu summu nura qamu amelnakru! Nadu summu nura ina etutu!
