Doomsayer 03:27
As my plight now unfolds upon wretched, I've casted out all opposing my will. Clench the throats of the youth Turned pureness to filth. Spewing blood from an ominous grin. Wake the tremors! Make them crumble the world around us As I gaze from my throne of your ashes. The skies will tremble and cease. Tragedies, tremendous and grave! So few left, remaining enslaved! Slaughtered and slain All felt death's pain With their final embrace of the end. Feast on flesh as the famine now spreads. Vanquish what's left of all that is pure. Hand them nothing, give them suffering, As they lament in a pit of despair. Behold the numerous horrors, beheadings harrowing. As the final exempt now displayed. Yet a king has rule and his crown as his tool Spreading fear, and dark might through his realm. Wake the tremors! Make them crumble the world around us As I gaze from my throne of your ashes. The skies will tremble and cease The howls and shrieks They all turn to screams. The madness it echoes for eternity The grounds tarnished red With the blood that's been shed Forgotten the dawn as the sun rises red. As the sun rises red! Clenched the throats of the youth Turning pureness to filth Spewing blood from an ominous grin. With their final embrace of the end Tragedies tremendous and grave So few left, remaining enslaved! Slaughtered and slain All felt death's pain With their final embrace of the end. Feast on flesh as the famine now spreads. Vanquish what's left of all that is pure. Hand them nothing, give them suffering, As they lament in a pit of despair.

Artorias 05:08
With wickedness at hand A grasp of solidarity This vile spewing out Spilling into all kinds of decay Rake the cold lands of bones from the weak A wisp of foolishness And of possible peace There's no God no life Bear no taste of love Beware of death's glare Delivering despair Clutching you last air Enticing yet I see only compromising Horrendously hate filled Bear black crown ON YOUR KNEES! Lest ye be bludgeoned to kneel Bear black gown SWEAR TO THEE! Lest ye be slaughtered and slain Take this land, its innocence Break it down Pummeled to dust with the sledge Take this haunting walk with me Broken backs from the lashings he's laid Anguish at last With a tormenting hollow gaze There's no help nothing There's no peace to keep Writhing and moaning The snapping of bones break Rewarded with nothing Lifelessness binds to us Dismay is tied throughout Agony reigns relief Bear black crown ON YOUR KNEES! Lest ye be bludgeoned to kneel Bear black gowns SWEAR TO THEE! Lest ye be slaughtered and slain A wicked man chosen to impose wrath Upon the helpless mass With all his wealth and class Take the land and break it down Pummeled to dust with the sledge Just like the rest Take this dreadful stroll and see This spiteful crown It bleeds away everything This spiteful crown This foolish catastrophe This spiteful crown Disgusting in every way This spiteful crown It’s dastardly, appalling

Nightfall 03:20
The dimming of daylight, The shade encompasses all. And the nightfall has covered As the wicked now calls. Horrific the image Of what once was a man. His ghastly posture Composed with crinkled hands. Cursed with immortality Hunger forever more Feast on the blood of one's misfortune Tearing on with unquenchable gore. Your blood brings me life And it fuels my thirst. I bid you delight Yet deliver my curse Lurking in shadows I cut through with death Like the grim reapers swing Quick, deceptive and swift Prowling, starving, with ill intent Driven to madness by unforgiven pain. Carnivorous and vile eyes Harvesting throughout the night. Cursed with immortality Yearning for the end of me Compelled to endlessly slay Cursed to never see daylight (Break) Grotesque upon the wicked eyes Cursed with immortality Yearning for the end of me Compelled to endlessly slay The dwindle of daylight peers just beyond the plane. Now I slowly crawl back from where I once came Til the dusk overtakes and nightfall covers all. I viciously await for my hunger to call. Cursed with immortality Hunger forever more Feast on the blood of one's misfortune Tearing on with unquenchable gore.

Form the lines Take the best Throw the scraps to the rotting remains With this soullessness so undivine An assailant’s decrepit divide Eclipse my eyes From the heartlessness you provide Disgust and dismay drip from the lips of your lord Envision the gore From this blanket of bliss that drapes the blood streaked floors Within my grasp, within my reach A solid plight to overcome a soulless man to besiege To deceive and elude And as such has been burdened on you As the smite of his will breaks us down Deception hatched Kill the crown. Revolt and rise Let the flames burn all in sight With this vengeance at hand Retrieving with ferocity Eclipse my eyes Unmerciful no more Within my grasp, within my reach A solid plight to overcome A soulless man to besiege Envision the gore From this blanket of bliss that drapes the blood streaked floors Within my grasp, within my reach A solid plight to overcome A soulless man to besiege Relentless cold-blooded Bleeding out Infused with doubt Blessed by death's cold presence Let the darkness overcome One last scowl and a curse and vow to soon return To perish within death's embrace The end will judge you now.

Hades 04:26
Disasters below Pray for salvation while you're drifting away And as the submission collapses every morsel of faith Brace for the tipping point of your consciousness So contorted twisted soulless and endlessly slain Domain of pain Wrathful plane Sentenced for eternity So ceased and consumed by all the darkness of the damned We will never see the light of life again Deep underworld Death's despair As you’re embraced within hell Tides of shed blood Endless floods As they drift and sink and swell Beg for the end of grief to come There's no salvation in sight Only pain and regret And disdain, agony Beg for the end of death's suffering And the eternal demise of the soul And the light is lost So lost Pray for salvation while you're drifting away And as the submission collapses every morsel of faith Brace for the tipping point of your consciousness So contorted twisted soulless and endlessly slain So lost and forsaken and abandoned without hope Confined and oppressed by all the horrors within hell Deep underworld Death's despair As you’re embraced within hell Tides of shed blood Endless floods As they drift and sink and swell Endless floods of blood Pray for salvation Beg for the end of grief to come There's no salvation in sight Only pain and regret And disdain, agony Beg for the end of death's suffering And the eternal demise of the soul And the light is lost So lost Pray for salvation while you're drifting away And as the submission collapses every morsel of faith Brace for the tipping point of your consciousness So contorted twisted soulless and endlessly slain

Atlas 04:23
Defiant and bound to vanquish Yet the Gods stood in my path Betrayed by my own bloodline As the conqueror gives his wrath The times titans fell with greatness The price is even worse To bear the slate eternal Hold the skies, your demise is sealed Facelessness Forgotten yet still here Forget me not My curse to burden me Bearing the weight of the world The great pillar still prevails Alone I hold it all Alone I am bound, bound to my fate Carry the slate forever The strength held up by one Wise beyond my great foes Yet entangled and forcefully shunned The end is everlasting There's no need for tears The grasp surprised the pain Forgiveness forbidden Bearing the weight of the world The great pillar still prevails Alone I hold it all Alone I am bound, bound to my fate Bearing the weight of the world The great pillar still prevails Alone I hold it all Alone I am bound, bound to my fate

Treachery 03:25
Hail! Hail! All hail and bow before your lord and majesty Hail! Hail! Make way or die peasants Give up your praise A king's posture met Embellished with dread This man is not what he claims to be Bred for the throne Born of nobility Evil and treachery engraved within him And all that he rules shall burn Fiendishly filled with a hunger that only wealth and dominance and tyranny could ever even satisfy. His lust goes on unfulfilled. Gripping the necks of all who defy him All will know the bitter enforcement that must be implied through his wrath. Hail! Hail! All kiss the ground before your heartless liege Hail! Hail! Adored while repugnant and so disgusting Kneel! Kneel! Lashings and blood spill will reflect on this day Almighty overlord, what is thy will? Biddings of massacres, mayhem and such gore Kneel! I said Kneel! Dictations have yet to have been met Repercussions of wrath inflicting genocide All shall be unveiled Deception and treachery is promised to all Fiendishly filled with a hunger that only wealth and dominance and tyranny could ever even satisfy. A treachery toward the masses striking often and without a second's regret. All reason has long been lost Hail! Hail! All hail and bow before your lord and majesty Hail! Hail! All kiss the ground before your heartless liege Hail! Hail! Deception and treachery is promised to all

Vendetta 03:55
Not long ago You ripped me down Tore something out Something I'll never be able to retrieve Not long from now You will regret And you will beg For all the kindness that you never showed to me. I swear my vengeance will rain down upon you I swear my vendetta will end with your life Never again will i let your affections affect me I will be relieved when you’re gone Slash of the throat Cut to the bone Frightened with dread Dug in with my blade Satisfaction now achieved The look in your eyes As you start to die I've waited for this Since you crossed the line with arrogance and pride I swore my vengeance would rain down upon you I swore my vendetta will end when you are dead Never again can your afflictions affect me I now rejoice that you are gone Without regret It was for the best I swore my vengeance would rain down upon you I swore my vendetta would end when you are dead Never again can your afflictions affect me And now that you are gone I got that something back
