Rising from the grave, A corpse without a soul. Beneath the moonlit sky, A story to be told. The revenant's crucifixion, A symbol of the undead. A curse that lasts forever, In darkness, we are led. Torn from earthly chains, The dead return to life. Eternal agony, A never-ending strife. The revenant's crucifixion, A symbol of the undead. A curse that lasts forever, In darkness, we are led. Spirits of the damned, Haunt the living with their pain. The crucifixion of the revenant, A never-ending reign. The revenant's crucifixion, A symbol of the undead. A curse that lasts forever, In darkness, we are led. Croisfheiste an Fheabhraí! Croisfheiste an Fheabhraí! Croisfheiste an Fheabhraí! Embrace them... Father... For they unleash a darkness That they cannot fathom.

Verse In the heart of the eternal night, Where shadows coil, obscuring the light, A chalice emerges, bathed in gloom, A vessel of darkness, sealed in its tomb. Pre-Chorus Spirits of the abyss, we invoke thine might, with voices raised in fervent chant, we ignite, Through the darkness we march, the sacrificial way, To toast the celestial sky, where shadows sway. Chorus Chalice, risen from abyssal depths, Bathed in darkness, where chaos begets, Raise it high, a toast to the celestial bodies, In sacrifice, we find the strength to defy. Verse Within its depths, the essence of night, Sacrificial whispers, a ritual of blight, Dark elixir, crimson nectar of old, Embracing the shadows, our spirits enfold. Pre-Chorus Spirits of the abyss, we invoke thine might, with voices raised in fervent chant, we ignite, Through the darkness we march, the sacrificial way, To toast the celestial sky, where shadows sway. Chorus Chalice, risen from abyssal depths, Bathed in darkness, where chaos begets, Raise it high, a toast to the celestial bodies, In sacrifice, we find the strength to defy.

Verse Amidst the shadows of the night, Beyond the reaches of the light, Lies a land of eternal winter, Where darkness reigns and time stands still. Pre-Chorus Tá milleadh ortsa i dtír seo. Chorus A Realm unknown, where spirits roam, Through the forests of the damned. A Realm unknown, where death has flown, And darkness reigns, a world condemned. Verse In this world of endless night, The moon is but a distant sight, And the stars are few and far between, As the winds of darkness scream.‌ Pre-chorus Tá milleadh ortsa i dtír seo. Chorus A Realm unknown, where spirits roam, Through the forests of the damned. A Realm unknown, where death has flown, And darkness reigns, a world condemned.

The Calling 05:41
In your mind, voices that whisper scenes of horrid butchery. from the darkness they came, the darkness they bring. Agonizing the soul with black witchery. Order decaying to mayhem, Life rotting to death. A maze your head from the light that’s fled. Demons from hell scream to be fed. You pray to be saved, freed from their cage. Prostrated in worship to a god unswayed. Nailed to the wall, to faith you crawl. no one will save you, no one to call. Cry for relief, flee to sleep. Curled In terror, your spirit’s weak. This is your fate it won’t do you no good, soothing your soul no one fucking (could). In your mind voices that whisper ceaseless debauchery Spiritual pain whipping winds. Breathing in new found lechery Your psyche reduced to nothing, the blood starts to freeze in your veins. Totally insane your fight in vain, trapped in a waking sleep. For sin they march, infected by the calling

Verse In the void of despair, where shadows writhe, All are condemned to suffer and to strive. A malignant force, a curse that's been bestowed, In this bleak symphony, darkness takes hold. Pre-Chorus In the heart of anguish, where hope dies, All existence shrouded in tormented cries. A singular entity, a vessel of pain, In the depths of darkness, it shall reign. Chorus The Will of All, a relentless abyss, Devouring souls with an insatiable kiss. Through realms of suffering, its dominion sprawls, Enveloping every being, as darkness enthralls. Verse In the desolate realms, where nightmares breed, All are condemned to suffer and bleed. Eternal torment, a never-ending woe, In this macabre tapestry, pain shall grow. Pre-Chorus The echoes of anguish, haunting and bleak, All are ensnared, their sanity weak. A vessel of torment, embodying dread, Converge to one Chorus The Will of All, a relentless abyss, Devouring souls within insatiable bliss. Through realms of suffering, its dominion sprawls, Enveloping every being, as darkness enthralls. Outro In the heart of desolation, where hope's undone, All existence crumbles, their souls overrun. Devouring souls with insatiable bliss. Through realms of suffering, its dominion sprawls, Enveloping every being, the will of all.

Rí an Nihil 04:55
Verse The world lies barren, consumed by my wrath, All that once was, now lies in my path. The darkness surrounds me, a void of despair, And I stand alone, the god of nowhere. Chorus Consuming everything, I'm left with emptiness, A void that consumes, all that's left is nothingness. My power has grown, but my soul is hollow, Consuming nothingness, my destiny to follow. Verse The world was mine, a kingdom of might, But all that's left, is a never-ending night. My thirst for power, make no mistake, For in consuming all, I've left only the wake. Chorus Consuming everything, I'm left with emptiness, A void that consumes, all that's left is nothingness. My power has grown, but my soul is hollow, Consuming nothingness, my destiny to follow. Verse The void consumes me, and I'm left to die, My legacy fades, as I let out a cry. I've lost everything, to my own design, And now I'm left, with nothing but time. Chorus Consuming everything, I'm left with emptiness, A void that consumes, all that's left is nothingness. My power has grown, but my soul is hollow, Consuming nothingness, my destiny to follow. Outro The nothingness consumes, all that's left behind, A world that once was, now fades from my mind I take my crown and ascend the throne Ri An Nihil

Rays of Hate 05:34
Verse A shadow cast upon the land The rays of hate, take command The darkness creeps, Thine soul does scream The ancient power, it now redeems Pre-Chorus From the depths of the abyss, it arises Unleashing darkness, where evil disguises Verse The ancient ones, they rise again The serpent's coil, it shall ascend The call to arms, the ancient rites The fire burns, with all its might Pre-Chorus A force so ancient, it cannot be denied Our Will, in darkness shall abide Chorus Rays of hate, the infernal flame The ancient curse, shall remain The blackened heart, now awakes As darkness spreads, with rays of hate Verse Within the void, where shadows writhe, All hope extinguished, life's flame dies. The will of all, a ruthless tide, Consuming souls, it won't be denied. Pre-Chorus In the heart of the night, shadows align The whispers of darkness, a malevolent sign Chorus Rays of hate, the infernal flame The ancient curse, shall remain The blackened heart, now awakes As darkness spreads, with rays of hate Bridge The flames of old, burn so bright The ancient rage, takes its flight The darkness reigns, shadows grow The old ways, shall bestow The ancient rites, are complete The power gained, thy soul replete Darkness reigns, all hate shall grow The ancient ways, we shall bestow. Chorus Rays of hate, the infernal flame The ancient curse, shall remain The blackened heart, now awakes As darkness spreads, with rays of hate

Verse In the depths of a moonless night, Where shadows dance in pale moonlight, A darkness creeps, an eerie sight, A heart of black, devoid of light. Chorus A Heart of Black, a soul unbound, Unleashing chaos, all around. Through fire and frost, we shall embark, Embrace the darkness, a Heart of Black. Verse Through haunted woods and ancient tombs, Beneath the stars where darkness looms, A symphony of screams and cries, The macabre echoes in the skies. Chorus A Heart of Black, a soul unbound, Unleashing chaos, all around. Through fire and frost, we shall embark, Embrace the darkness, a Heart of Black. ‌ Outro As the moon descends, our spirits soar, A Heart of Black forevermore. In realms of shadows, we shall roam, The ocean of stars and darkness, where hearts dwell forevermore

Shoah 04:40
A bastard race must be quelled, put to the torch with upmost eld. Ejected from homes, marked and stamped. Postage for factories of scalding hell From their slums to capitals, crushed, killed, and destroyed. raped, terrorized, and ravaged their women, barren. Tortured and humiliated, lessons for their children. Iron rule over mountains of steel and carrion. A Violation not stamped on the sands of time. The forsaken bells of a smoldering church chime. Mind fucked swathes of mangled inhumanity. Living archives sink under the tide. A dove takes flight for a horizon far, Sweltering in defeat. A crime with no justice a city with no life amid total destruction. A fragrant play a dance of death’s grim production. Dust and bones buried deep, their stories forgotten.

Verse In chambers adorned with gold and grace, A secret cult gathers, veiled by lace. Seeking the void, they worship the night, As luxury and darkness swallows all life. Pre-Chorus United in riches, they stand unbowed, With decadent dreams, their voices grow loud. But in the embrace of death, they'll soon learn, Regret will consume them, as their minds churn. Verse Silken whispers, a cacophony resounds, As the cult dances, madness knows no bounds. In the midst of splendor, they sought release, But now they crumble, as sanity flees.‌ Pre-Chorus United in riches, they stand unbowed, With decadent dreams, their voices grow loud. But in the embrace of death, they'll soon learn, Regret will consume them, as their minds churn. Chorus An opulent passage, the infinite void, Echoes of madness, no respite to find. A sumptuous demise, fear and lust combined, Into the darkness, they spiral, entwined. Bridge Their wealth, a burden, a maddening light, Into the nothingness, they cannot take flight. The luxury of death, a twisted embrace, The terror of the void, they now must face. Verse Frantic laughter, as gold turns to rust, Their gilded dreams, now decaying to dust. Bound by their greed, the void's chilling call, Their minds shattered, in terror they fall. Outro Void of the Infinite, Our Passage to thee The abyss beckons, a siren's call, A sumptuous demise, fear and lust for all, Into the darkness, they spiral, entwined.
