1. Immortal Rites (4:04)
Gathered for a sacred rite
Subconscious minds allied
Call upon immortals
Call upon the oldest one to intercede
Rid us of our human waste
Cleanse our earthly lives
Make us one with darkness
Enlighten us to your ways

From churning worlds of mindlessness
Come screams unheard before
Haunting voices fill the room
Their source remaining undefined
Shadows cast from faceless beings
Lost for centuries

Lords of death, I summon you
Reside within our brains
Cast your spells upon our lives
So that we may receive
The gift of immortality
Bestowed on those who seek you

[Solo: Brunelle]

(I pray(?)

(Now immortal)
2. Suffocation (3:15)
Laugh at the tragedies
Mock with disrespect
Goats under rule of father time
Leaches pass judgement on their fellow kind
And die when their inner self goes astray
Alas, I pay homage to the ancient ones
Speak my name!!
Raise the staff of the morbid priest
Descend into the fires of the true law

Suffocating evil smoke arise
Cleansing the masses of iniquity
Cauldrons blaze in sanctifying ritual
Vile crematory burns my eyes

Mortals filled with despair
They quest to forsee their fate
Caverns below await the wine to flow
Rape the harvest of souls
I watch in awe as the crucifiers march
Killing time, killing all I see
Another moon rise, human waste
Screaming 'Why hath thou forsaken me ?'

It's the dawn of the crucifiers
Suffocation
3. Visions from the Darkside (4:10)
Dark eyes, shadows grim
They come for me
Midnight chimes, blackened earth
The evils rise
Pits of hate open wide
Chasm of my dreams
Last of chimes - monks arrive
And take my mind again

Waste polluted memories
Acid rivers flow
Vigil for this land's decay
Sounding from below
Dogs of war, Satan's own
Plotting all their sins
Weapons aimed at liberty
My vision - no one wins

Take my mind
All the way
The darkside calls
I shan't resist

(Solo: Brunelle)

Men forever rot in pain
Mind machines control
Toxic rains scouring brains
Victimizing souls
Winds of war suffocate
Voodoo in the sky
Breathe the gases, breathe no more
My vision - all will die

Take my mind
All the way
The darkside calls
I shan't resist

(Solo: Azagthoth)

Cut myself and release the blood
Pains of a thousand years
Pathic sights - journey's end
Descent into another world
My time has come to meet the
Masters... all the corporate lords
I'm not afraid to face all their
Trials - slavery - in the end they'll
Still have no power over me

(Solo: Brunelle)

Daylight shines blind my eyes
Waken to another day
Tribulation now has passed
But the dreams remain
Walls of sleep fade away
Abandonment of wonders
Monks of knowledge bid farewell
And leave me with these visions
From the darkside

Visions - from the darkside
4. Maze of Torment (4:25)
Life betrayal - a warping rage
Evil ripping caverns through your mind
Immolation - in blood you've signed your soul away
Sickening life ends but the horror has just begun

Vultures moaning a funeral dirge
Walls await to cradle you and rip your soul apart
Incessant screams echoes through the maze
Insanity approaches - imminent demise

Maze of torment...
Maze of torment...
Maze of torment...
Maze of death

Stricken from the holy book deliverance to pain
Effigy of Jesus Christ burning in your mind
Voices cry out to bid you welcome
Locked within the dungeons of darkness - no escape!!

Maze of torment...
Maze of torment...
Maze of torment...
Maze of death

(Solo: Azagthoth)

Passing through corridors embedded with
Scars of those who have gone before you
And left their marks

Warning comes to late to save you now
Visions of suffering stab from the inside

You pray for death
Mourning does no good as you can only die once

Souls are being raped by the maze
Lost in these halls... endlessly

(Solo: Brunelle)

(Solo: Azagthoth)

Maze of torment...
Maze of torment...
Maze of torment...
Maze of death
5. Lord of All Fevers and Plague (3:26)
6. Chapel of Ghouls (4:58)
Ghouls attack the church
Crush the holy priest
Turning the cross towards hell
Writhe in [sings "with"] satan's flames

Crush the priest
The feeble church

Dead - your god is dead
Fools - your god is dead
Useless prayers of lies
Behold satan's rise

Crush the priest
The feeble church
The family of dog
Lust upon my altar

Demons attack with hate
Satan in the fires of hell awaits
Death against you all
God hear my death call
7. Bleed for the Devil (2:23)
Come to me, lord of filth
Hear my cries princes of nightmares
Touch us with your morbid lips
Let us taste your foulness

[Chorus:]
Bleed for the devil
Impious mortal lives
Feel the enticing power
Fill the chasm of your soul

Fill the air with the smell of death
Grace us with your magic
Fill the night with the stench of evil
I summon forth the beast

[Solo: Brunelle]

[Chorus]

[Solo: Azagthoth, Brunelle]

Cold look in his eyes
He holds the gleaming knife
Girl cries as he cuts away the
Strips of flesh

[Solo: Brunelle]

[Chorus]

[Solo: Azagthoth]
8. Damnation (4:10)
[Lyrics: Vincent]

[Solo: Azagthoth]

Evil Minds grievous sins
Pagan lives have no place for law
Twisted worship exhume the dead
Minds unite for evil cause
Death corrodes the book once strong
Evil lourd destroys his foes
Plague has spread throughout the land
Revelations have begun

Call of evil's mastermind
Christians flock to the beast
Burning crosses burn souls
Exterminate the altar of laws
Atrocities of a new reich
Holy war and holocaust
God weeps and turns his back
The time is right to destroy the world

[Chorus:]
Damnation
Fill the world with plague
Force of devastation
Tyranny from above

[Solo: Brunelle]

[Chorus]

[Solo: Brunelle]

Churning of cities lust so profane
Driving the will to destroy
Crippling powers I'm forced to partake unholy rituals
Crimes of a world barely alive
Melting debauchery
Ashes to ashes, so must I be
Lost in this misery
There's nothing left here for me
I know of no other way
Even death cannot change my ways
I'm first in the line
To hell we shall go

[Solo: Brunelle]

[Solo: Azagthoth]

Call of evil's mastermind
Christians flock to the beast
Burning crosses burn souls
The time is right to destroy the world

[Solo: Azagthoth]

[Chorus]
9. Blasphemy (3:32)
I am the god of gods
Master of the art
I desecrate the chaste
Writhe in the flesh

Blasphemy

Chant the blasphemy
Mockery of the messiah
We curse the holy ghost
Enslaver of the weak
God of lies and greed
God of hypocrisy
We laugh at your bastard child
No god shall come before me

[Chorus:]
Blaspheme the ghost [X3]
Blasphemy of the holy ghost

[Solo: Brunelle]

Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the law
Rebel against the church
Drink from the chalice of blasphemy
Rise up against the enslaver

(Blasphemy)

[Repeat 2nd verse and chorus]

[Solo: Azagthoth]

[Repeat 2nd chorus]

(Blasphemy)
10. Evil Spells (4:12)
[Solo: Azagthoth]

Caught within my evil spell
Now it's time to burn in hell
You were fooled on return
You're just a doll for him to burn
See the reaper in his eyes
Messenger - prince of flies
Brain washed with sin and death
Time to burn - my evil wrath

Evil spells...[X2]

[Solo: Azagthoth]

Bring the children down to burn
Once you fall - no return
Sin takes you by surprise
On this backwards hellbound ride
Gates of hell drawing near
Satan loves the taste of fear
Quenching all with black desire
Burn your souls in furnace fire

Evil spells...[X2]

[Solo: Brunelle]

Evil spell of the dead
Messengers of your death
Falling endless in your tomb
Locked within infernal doom
See the reaper in my eyes
Messenger - prince of flies
Warlock's voice surrounds your dreams
Baking soul within your screams

Evil spells...[X2]

[Solo: Brunelle]
