Ethereal Altars Lyrics

Submitted by level Rousseau (2015-04-03)
1. Intro (0:45)
2. Tiamatic Reprisal (5:21)
Shapeless sovereign of primeval waters
Crawler in the lightless oceanic depths
Reverberating chants from the lost abyss
Rekindled oaths of ascension

Summon the waves to arise
Citadels drowned by the black tide
Bloated corpses floating
Horrific plateaus revealed

Reverberating chants from the lost abyss
Rekindled oaths of ascension

Dead lakes flood the desert...

Kingdoms engulfed by the ancient deluge
Unyeilding answer to the archaic call
Tiamat commands from the darkest places
Merciless consumer of forsaken shores
3. Burial Zenith (3:41)
Beneath the barren ziggurat
Catacombs cradle the dead
Airless sleep of ages
Enshrined in lairs of mud

Call to the ancient deceased
Heralds of the burial zenith
Blackened choirs of the deep
Raise the hymns of unlife

Inhale the vapour of corpses
Wrathful breath from the vaults
Faces emerge in the smoke
The spell is complete

The tombs where skulls endure
Erupt at the final doom
Elder curse returns
Vengeance is reborn
4. Desolate Tomb of the Trinity (4:21)
Abandoned beneath crumbling pillars
Forgotten grave of the godhead
Threefold chambers of marble
Harbour the three most beloved...

An urn for the ashes of the Holy Trinity
A relic adored by the vermin alone
The ever voiceless Spirit
Shall silently remain

A charnel pit unadorned and cold
Final realm of the skeletal Christ
Unearthed bones of the Redeemer
Gather dust eternally

Dead candles flank the Creator's shrine
Light has failed in the uttermost crypt
Shrouded in shadow forever
The wretched remains of the father
5. Lured by Ethereal Altars (7:13)
Eurus cries from the East, ominous voice of the wasteland
Swarm of locust messengers, a scourge from opened graves
Embrace the buried wind, the sinister execration

Whispers sealed the gates, now revealed again
Ramparts loom from the sand
Dreadful monoliths perfected at last
Ethereal altars beckon

Lured by ethereal altars
Nameless dread awaits... the hour has come

Spectral crenellations, the morbid portal lures
Drifting to the threshold, a shimmering necropolis
Hallucinations invoked by the sun, ensnaring cruel illusions
Maledictions on the breeze so tangible and ancient

Lured by ethereal altars
Nameless dread awaits... the hour has come
6. The Pact (2:15)
