1. For the Devil and His Angels (4:31)
2. Black Fires of God (7:39)
Dreams of ancient demons.
Dreams of thousand deeps.
Dreams of blackened aeons.
Like a raging storm it sleeps.

Where the earth is flooded in blood and the rats
are drunk of its poison.
We burn in the black fires of god and rise above the horizon.

As our altar we bless the night skies.
Where no candles burn as stars.
But a funeral pyre as the sun dies.
To shapeless eternities afar.

Nothing is holy as all is nothing.
Nothing is all as holy is nothing.
Three times a night in the black fires of god.
Three times a death and a thousand yet to come.

Dreams of ancient demons.
Dreams of thousand deeps.
Dreams of blackened aeons.
Like a raging storm it sleeps.

Crowned is the servant of the serpent.
Who once was kneeling in repent.
Now ascended to the throne of the blood.
Reigning in the black fires of god.
3. Desolate Shrine (10:03)
If you would listen to this silence
You could obtain keys to a new sense
A sight with explore your darkness
Without eyes, without light
In this ritual at desolate shrine
You hear no words, no prayers
This is the ritual of silence
The gateway to utter blackness

In front of pure nothingness
Man shivers like autumn leaves
Without the rhythm of life he is withering away

In front of the all-piercing eye
Naked behind his wall of flesh
Lack of safety and comfort
He is vanishing within himself
In this ritual at desolate shrine
You hear no words, no prayers
This is the ritual of silence
The gateway to utter blackness

In a dangerous meeting
With yourself in the abyss
Under the layers of chaos you are the will of god
Eye to an eye with a stranger you both raise your daggers
In the name of Satan
You become one

In this ritual at desolate shrine
You speak no words, you pray not
It is the womb of silence where you die and born again
And you see them now
Explorer of your darkness
The keys in your hands
A new world opens

ONE OF CHAOS
WITHIN CHAOS
4. Death in You (6:17)
The sweet fruits of life you have tasted
Embraced the Sun with its warmth in your heart
No trail is unknown to you
You know them all far too good
And lost you are not

But is it all there is?
What you see here
Is it really all there is?
What you think you have seen?

DEATH - the arrogant brother
DEATH - who lives in you
DEATH - as your shadow he travels
DEATH - always behind you
Have you seen him?
Have you felt him?

The sweet fruits of life you have tasted
Embraced the Sun with its warmth in your heart
Death, the arrogant brother
Who lives in you
As your shadow he travels
Always behind you

For he sees you
From the beginning
He has chosen you
And to live in you
As your shadow he travels
Always behind you
5. We Dawn Anew (14:59)
Every form comes formless
As you are evoked forth
Awake the smokeless fires and manifest into our realm
Here we are travelling stagnant
Gathering at this hour in every corner of Earth

From above of her highest mountains
From between of their thickest shadows
We are calling you to descend
Air and Earth, collide!
We are calling you to ascend
Water and Fire, unite!

From below of his blackest seas
From beyond of their deepest dreams
This era has come to an end
as in your name we dawn anew
We are calling you to descend
Air and Earth, collide!
We are calling you to ascend
Water and Fire, unite!

We the drowned children
The nine of them highest
Exalted by the one
Dethroned by none
Sweep this circle of flesh
Reveal the bones and dust
Exhaust the living inside
For in death there is life
Let us shine!
6. Leviathan (6:34)
Leviathan!
Great Ancient Serpent
Devour the Sun of my soul
Treat iron like straw and bronze like rotten wood
Great Ancient Serpent
Devour the Sun of my soul
Circle me with your coils of chaos
When I reach for eternities
Seal me beneath your gorge of depths
For as I drown, I travel

Great Ancient Serpent
Devour the Sun of my soul
Leviathan!
Treat iron like straw and bronze like rotten wood
Crooked prince of the waters
Of knowledge and awareness
Of chaos and confusion
Of the waters of man

Leviathan!
Will not be cured the wings that lay on a back of a dead
And will not carry the feathers that were rotten from the birth

Cut them loose
Rip and burn
Your heart is free and your soul of fire

Leviathan!
Great Ancient Serpent
Devour the Sun of my soul
Pull me down into your watery deep
For as I fall, I travel

Forever
7. The Heart of the Netherworld (13:05)
Sumerian chants
Akkadian prayers
Night of the Mother, Night of the Moon
Here gods are in man
Surpassing all of them kings

They have seen the deep
The heart of the netherworld
Already before the first glance
The darkness found its home

Līlītu, our cruel and caring mother
Under your terrible hands we cry
Not out of love, not out of fear
But out of beauty of your horror

Do not question the rites
The rites of the netherworld
Until you are dead
I shall not look upon you
With the eye of life
Until you are dead
Do not question the rites
The rites of the netherworld

Night of the Mother, Night of the Moon
Here gods are in man
Surpassing all of them kings
They have entered the deep
The heart of the Netherworld
The road to the darkest mysteries
To the land of no return
