Track Name: Angelic Encounters
(LEAD: PAUL)

(CHORUS):
Cold winds blowing,
Darkness fills the skies
Fear is showing, panic in your eyes
Unknown forces,
From the heavens above
Evil spirits, angelic shapes
Sent to destroy

Shapes of beauty, souls of rage
Released from Heaven's golden gates
Their anger suppressed 2,000 years
Hypocrisy is running
Through their veins

The angels...are out for your blood
They cry out...a declaration of war
A war...to wipe our mankind
All evil...unleashed in this night

(LEAD: PAUL)

(REPEAT CHORUS)

Believers raise their hands
Up to the skies
Not realizing their faith is
Based on lies
Awaiting the arrival of their lord
Unknowing they'll be
Utterly destroyed

(REPEAT 2nd VERSE)

The believers finally realize
The False One, eternally idolized
Too late to fight the hand of fate
You're exposed to God's unholy rage

(REPEAT CHORUS)
Track Name: In Utter Darkness
As I dwell in utter darkness,
Where death's my only friend
As I emerge from the pits,
Where the rotting corpses dance

Blood, pus, slime and feces
Drop from all my holes
My list for flesh is fulfilled
As I tear your soul apart

The sound of your spine
Being broken by my hands
Makes me so hard, this erection
Can't be ignored
Feel my maggot-infested cock
Between your legs
I pull out, I cum blood
In your dismembered face

I am the walking dead
I live to kill
No remorse, no regrets
It's just my way of killing time
I feast on your flesh
To make the pain go away
The suffering, the intense suffering,
It tortures me every day

(CHORUS:)
Stare into my eyes,
And you will understand
Fulci wrote no fiction;
The dead walk...once again

(REPEAT 2nd VERSE)

(REPEAT CHORUS)
Track Name: Sincere Chainsaw Salvation
A fire used to burn, a fire deep inside
The need to be somebody,
The need to stand out
I gave up all my standards,
I gave up all my goals
I became a number, absorbed by the crowd

But now I feel the urge
To stand up like a man
I'll leave my mark on society anyway I can
Slaughtering the innocent, butchering the old
Burying their rotting bones,
Feasting on their blood

(CHORUS:)
Chainsaw amputation
Scissors cut through nerves
Trendy eyeball piercings
Scarification supreme
Genital dissection
Broken glass stuffed in your holes
One worthless motherfucker left
Dismembered on the floor

Disturbing thoughts cross my mind
As I lay down on my bed
Frustrations of everyday life
Are boiling in my head

I feel the urge, I feel the need
To go out and kill
Kill my problems, kill my world
KILL! KILL! KILL!

(REPEAT CHORUS)

(TREMELO ABUSE: STEPHAN)

I tried to conform to society's ways
But I just couldn't—I couldn't cope
With all corruption, with all the lies
So I gave up—I gave up all hope

(TREMELO ABUSE: PAUL)

Call me an outcast, call me a freak
I don't care, I don't give a fuck
When my chainsaw rips your flesh
You will know who's in control
Track Name: Infuriated
The master commands, the soldiers obey
They'll fight till death
Saddle up your horses, raise your swords
Obey my commands
You must fight, destroy the false ones,
Each hanger-on
Who followed their leaders
Without thinking—just like you

The battle begins, show no mercy
Chop off their heads
Beelzebub's smiling; he's gathering recruits
For the legions of hell
Blindly they're fighting, without any sense
They kill to kill
They're caught in a spell, locked in a shell
Prisoners of Hell

Their minds start to work, the spell's losing grip
They fight to get free
They disobey their master
They have their own will now, can't you see
The Evil Force has lost its strength
The spell is broken
They turn to their master, chop off his head
The False One's power is taken

(LEAD: PAUL)
Track Name: The Howling
Searching for me with its gloomy eyes
Eyes of fire in the dead on the night
The howling is all around...
How long will it take till I will be found
Now it has got me on the run
Now the chase has begun
I don't know where I must run
'Cause it follows me wherever I go

(LEAD: LEON)

Two different personalities
Are living in my brain
My alter-ego is chasing me,
It's driving me insane
Schizophrenic; sickening, violence-seeking mind
Is trying to eliminate my helpful, peaceful side

(LEAD: PAUL)

It has found me, now there's no escape
This is the end of my trip
Suicide is the only solution
To free myself from my persecution mania

(LEAD: LEON)

Distorted thoughts of suicide
Will not leave my mind
My persecuted mind is searching for a way out
Slitting my wrists—a pleasant way to die
Besides myself,
I kill the one who is fucking up my mind
Track Name: Gods Of War
Genocide—all civilization destroyed
The gods of war—emerging once again
Limb dissection—body parts everywhere
Soul collector—beware, the reaper is near
Limb dissector, soul collector
Fear the reaper, I am near
Ethnic cleansing, extermination
Genocide is what I crave
The smell of death turns me on
I cum on segmented limbs
Women, children, men and beasts
All corpses smell the same
Sempiternal, Hell on Earth
The gods of war have emerged
Do not await the Nazarene
No Judgment Day, all prayers in vain
The rotting stench of burning flesh,
The sickening smell of war
It fills your lungs like
The stench of an indisposed whore

(LEAD: PAUL)

(REPEAT 3rd VERSE)

Women, children, men and beasts
Yellow, black and white
No discrimination—you all die tonight!
Track Name: The Devil's Concubine
Night falls, darkness calls
Evil fantasies in your mind
Summer breeze, you feel at ease,
Sorrows banished form your mind
Erotic dreams, perverted scenes,
Behind the curtains of your eyes
Hellish whore opens wide
You can't see through her wicked lies

(CHORUS:)
She appears in your nightmares
She lives in your dreams
She's got the looks of an angel
But she's not what she seems
The whore of Satan, the Devil's concubine
For a night of passion
You'll suffer a lifetime

Fingers stretching, nails scratching,
Blood is running down your back
Flesh torn, blood-cum,
Feel the hooks inside her cunt
Orgasmic rush turns to dust
As you scream out in disgust
Satanic whore, queen of gore
You're suffering, yet she wants more

(REPEAT CHORUS)

(LEAD: STEPHAN)

As you lie there, blood-soaked
Satan's whores are gathered
To feast upon your flesh
Organs and genitals, a grand buffet
Of first-class human meat
Your soul has left your body
The journey to the other side begins
Prepare for mental torture
As you enter the Realm of Ecstasy

(LEAD: PAUL)
Track Name: Speed Kills
Thrash, feel the power from inside
Intense metal will blow your mind
The way you look, we don't care
As long as the feeling burns in your soul

(CHORUS:)
Your blood circulation is running mad
Our speed kills!

All-out violence fills the air
Segmented limbs lie everywhere
Colliding bodies—a metal way
There's blood on the dance floor,
Give me more

(REPEAT CHORUS)

(LEAD: LEON)

Intense thrashing—feel the pain
Hardcore metal burns your brain
Loss of energy, loss of words
As you witness our deadly rebirth

(LEAD: PAUL)
Track Name: Thou Shalt Rot
She drank the seed of thirteen devils
Cast out from Hell, banned from Heaven
Mother of all whores, mother of sin
She carries the spawn of evil within
In the flames of horror
She spills her blood
Giving birth to Invictus
Left to rot

Born from the seed of thirteen devils
He carries the flag of death into battle
Invictus, immortal, the lord of plagues
All enemies slaughtered, all opponents slain
On the field of honor—he'll spill your blood
On the field of honor—thou shalt rot...

As we're gathered here tonight
In the Church of Indulgence
We celebrate Invictus, our victorious lord
Bringer of pleasures, master of sin
Destroyer of dogmas, he feeds the power within

Forward into battle, destroying all in sight
Root out all religion, the plague of mankind

God, the demon architect,
The master of all lies
Billions drugged for life
Please open your eyes!
Track Name: L'aldila - Beyond Terror
Enter the realm of darkness,
Forget all the fears you've ever known
Dark is your mind and black is your soul
As you feel that you're losing all control
Feel my knife exploring every single inch
Of your naked body stretched out in front of me
Tearing every muscle, cutting every vein

Let me be the needle that penetrates your eye
You're one step beyond terror
(I'm) exploring what's inside

Suffocating slumber
A terrifying world of dreams
These awful hellish nightmares
Is it fiction or is it real?
Can you sense the pain inflicted upon you?
You've reached beyond the darkest horrors
No turning back for you

Trapped inside this mind warp, reality or dream?
One step beyond terror, unlike anything you've seen

(LEAD: PAUL)

A suffocating, dehydrating
Eviscerating, world of horror
A miscalculation, the ultimate failure
No salvation, eternal damnation
Beyond the flesh, beyond comprehension
Beyond terror!
Track Name: Devour The Living
Burn...brothers...burn... Beyond the point of no return
Build your funeral pyres, We belong in fire...

Burn...brothers...burn..., The dead have returned
All living souls we despise, Rise...corpses...rise...

The darkest day of horror, the world has ever known
No chance of survival, no matter where you go
You're destined to be butchered, your body left to rot
No sanctuary for you, so stop praying to your god

I inhale the nauseating stench of rotting bodies
As I climb this wall of corpses, piled up in front of me
Forced to feed on the remains of the ones that didn't make it
Eating my way out of this godforsaken hole

Burn...brothers...burn...The dead have returned

Mildewed organs, white molded meat
Clotted body juices, voraciously consumed
My stomach is resistant, my heart beats through my chest
A trail of burning acid cuts deep into my flesh

I feel my powers decline, rotting from the inside
Gastric juices boiling, searching a way out
Vomit leaves my anus, shit runs from my mouth
I prepare for putrefaction, I feel I'm going down

Burn...brothers...burn... Beyond the point of no return

Burn...brothers...burn..., The dead have returned
All living souls we despise, Rise...corpses...rise...
Track Name: Rites Of Retaliation
Raging thunderstorms are boiling in my head
I won’t rest or give up till I know that you are dead
You raped my wife and children, took all that once was mine
Burnt my house to the ground, drove off, left me to die
But now I’m here to settle scores, now it’s payback time
I am judge and jury and it’s your time to fry
You thought that I had died in flames that dreadful night
But like a ghost from the dead I stand before your eyes

I can’t change or rearrange the things that you have done
But to see you suffer unto me will surely turn me on
Just a little peace of mind is all that I ask for
Enlightenment of my misery to watch you die in loads of gore

Vengeance is mine as we finally meet again
Feel my anger, feel my wrath, prepare for my attack

(LEAD: PAUL)

(REPEAT 2ND VERSE)

(REPEAT 1ST VERSE)
