Track Name: Excidium
Army of the night awake for thy offering
To Plague mankind’s existence

Darkness engulfs the land
As a fallen sky’s last demand
Streams of consciousness pierce through my heart

Impale their beloved martyr’s
Thy sacred land shall be their tomb
Bringer of death, immense yourself in their decay

Swirling madness intrudes my soul
A thunderous act of laughter
It has begun

And none shall stand
Against our might

My existence.... bound in thorns
Plagued by the entity of man
We devour the weakness that is the flesh
We shall prevail

Descending (through) the sky, we march
The armies of darkness
Side by side, we are one

Pure Armageddon
A storm of choirs
Howling screams of pain
Awakens the earth from its hibernation
The black wind howls

As sky falls to earth below
I sense our demise
As I fall silently into darkness
I grip thy hilt of my sword as I slowly fade away
Track Name: Shadows Amongst The Moonlight
Under the moon and into Darkness
The wind brings torment to me
A vision proceeds

Of fear I wonder
What can this void bring?
Can I see the virtue of these darker times?

Amidst these damn shadows
Under the crescant moonlight
A fire burns through me
A new vision proceeds

This rebirth, what can it bring?
Can I see the virtue of these darker times?

Immortal days of old
Forlorn in the past
The spirit of eternal power

The past is revealed in shadows
That tear at my heart
Oh, how I yearn for days of old
Thy memories bring a shattered existence

Drenched in thy bitter sorrow
I laugh and stake my claim
Blood exudes from the sky
Like a beast it devours the flesh

Into madness take my soul
Deliver onto me, my unquenched desire

Behold a baptism in chaos
Night’s kiss of death, its unrelenting power
A feast of mortal souls
The world under an empire made of fire

Eternally binded into tragedy’s cause
Forged in the bloody depths of the fallen ones
Track Name: Entranced by Twilight's Gaze
Hypnotized, as your world dies in scorn
Close your eyes, a new world is born
Shrouded in darkness, the tricksters form of gold
Blind these eyes, cursed with lies, hypnotized

Further approaching your subconscious throne
Gasping your eyes, feeling…so cold
An Emptiness, creeps without dismay
Awakened this time, cursed with lies, hypnotized

Within a trance
Memories pass
From Twilight’s Mask

A realm of Fear
A blinded path
Chains are cast

Call forth a blackened time
Withering souls of a ransacked mind

Entranced, a accursed rage
Upon this throne lies an empty gaze
Track Name: Fields of Mourning
Nightfall, brings bitter silence
Lifeless streams blind my undying eye
This silence was broken
By cries from thee immortal sky
I breathe the air of this internal fire

Of Vengeance
Of Reprisal
Becomes death and a new arrival

Of Sacrament
Of One
Becomes Martyrdom for the fallen ones

Blood stained, a curse upon existence
A feast of eternal power
Dwells within us, the sacred soil of life
The serpent of light’s demise

A mournful sight upon the veil of time
Caressed by the hymn of the night
We are the keepers

A plague that drowns thy very heart
A spell is cast upon the light
We are the reapers

A revelation inscribed in flames

Fallen Kingdoms of past revelations
Fear driven in death drawn plague
Blood of men cast upon the flame
