Track Name: Lambs To The Slaughter
Down on your knees, facing the east
Accept your defeat as I slay for the Beast
Your lord has failed, your Jihad was in vain
Pray for your soul as you suffer in pain

The way of the dark is the way of the light
What’s right in your eyes is the ultimate lie………

The years of deception are finally gone
You showed your true colours, enlightenment has come
First we were blinded but now we can see
Infuriated we hunt down our enemies

(tremelo abuse: Paul)

The way of the dark is the way of the light
What’s right in your eyes is the ultimate lie………

The mountain, the prophet, the book of all lies
Like lambs to the slaughter, in the name of hell you’ll die…
Die!

The cry - of war - is heard, the battle’s on
The armies - of darkness - attack, the bastards run
We reign in blood we march to die
Sworn to Satan we kill the pigs tonight

Absorb - the blood - that’s spilled in his name
It gives - us strength - to fight with self esteem
The power inside it feeds upon our thoughts
Inferior to none we are the gods

The mountain, the prophet, the book of all lies
Like lambs to the slaughter, in the name of hell you’ll die…
Die!

(leads: Paul, Stephan/Paul/Stephan/Paul)

The way of the dark is the way of the light
What’s right in your eyes is the ultimate lie………
The mountain, the prophet, the book of all lies
Like lambs to the slaughter, in the name of hell you’ll die…
Die!
Track Name: Undead. Unholy. Divine.
The order of the Teutonic knights,
Crusaders known for their cruelty
Slaughtering villages, Impaling their victims,
To terrorize the population
Their ‘Black Cross’ inspired the SS
To their use of the iron cross
As they prepared for….war….

A gothic cathedral built upon
The corpses of a thousand non-believers

A cosmic design beyond our knowledge,
Demonic forces inherit the cathedral

Galloping hooves of the undead steeds
Still echo in the church

A cross-shaped gateway to the underworld,
A pathway to the beyond

From their unholy tombs the tortured souls arise
The dawn of Satan’s age….
Fire, lust and rage have arrived….
Track Name: Eraser
The symbols of your civilisation,
Erased with a single strike
No warning shot, no explanation,
Just a terrifying sea of light

In the final seconds of your existence
As the flames of Armageddon arise…
There’s not even time to panic,
So embrace your fate and pray to die

The night is falling, eraser is calling
The earth is shaking, history in the making

People leave their houses in fear,
The evil presence ever so near
The age of destruction is here

You thought you were invulnerable
You thought you were immortal
You thought you were invincible
You thought you had it all

He showed that you were vulnerable
He showed that you were mortal
He showed you your deficiencies
He came (and) destroyed it all

The eraser has finally come,
A destroyer and creator in one
Another civilisation is gone

The symbols of your civilisation,
Erased with a single strike
No warning shot, no explanation,
Just a terrifying sea of light

The night is falling, eraser is calling
The earth is shaking, history in the making
Track Name: 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 mindwarp, 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: The Sign Of Sadako
Buried in darkness, her deepest fear
(She became) one with the water, one with the sea
One became two, then two became one
Feared by all, but helped by no-one

Death surrounds her, everyone dies
Consumed by fear in the blink of an eye
Paralysed by her evil stare
How they died, no-one can tell

The curse was spread and visualised
Watch the images within seven days you’ll die
Where does she come from, nobody knows…
But you will find out and then you’ll burn down below

The little girl who lives down the well
Turned into an abomination from hell
Sadako rising from the bowels of the earth
Creating the greatest horrors ever to emerge

Is there a way to lift this horrible curse
Will you survive or will you rot in the earth?
Locked in the dark her revenge is (up)on you
Seven days have passed and there’s nothing you can do….
Track Name: Servants Of Hatred
Conforming to dogmatic standards, institutional obedience
Chained in solidarity, individuality obscured
To inhere in a contrived framework of hate
Embodiment of a contagious ineradicable malignity

Stigmatising an etnocentristic projection
To instigate the process of dehumanisation
Inveterated preconception, xenophobia
The opponent envisaged as the incorporation of evil

Imminent eruption of violence, a sanction to kill
Violence is justified to accomplish the ideology

Intrinsical latent sadistic beast emerged
Servants of hatred

Systematic obliteration commenced
Indulging the enforced superiority

Intrinsical latent sadistic beast emerged
Servants of hatred

(lead: Paul)

Pushing a cold barrel, against the uvula

Cringing, to grovel, retching, to regurgitate

(lead: Paul)

Shivering of anxiety, adjurations in agony
Pathetic human life, it’s better off dead
Ravishing (worthless) human life, to be exterminated like vermin
Pathetic human life, it’s better off dead
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 moulded 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…

(lead: Paul)
Track Name: Godforsaken
Poverty and war, death and deceit
Dying of floods or heatwave, again and again
Primitive minds, praying in vain
To their gods, to ease the pain

You can’t stop mother nature and her ways
You’re dying by numbers, it’s your fate
Breeding like rabbits, (so) at least a few survive
You’re born in hell and then you fucking die

We should not interfere, with their lives
We should not try, to “open their eyes”
“Civilisation”, has done more wrong than right
It’s their task, to learn and survive

You can’t stop mother nature and her ways
You’re dying by numbers, it’s your fate
Breeding like rabbits, (so) at least a few survive
You’re born in hell and then you fucking die

Poverty and war, death and disease
Praying to your god, down on your knees

(lead: Paul)

You’re born – in hell – you’ll suffer
No god – to help you – you’ve just got – each other

Poverty and war, death and disease
Praying to your god, down on your knees

(lead: Paul)

You’re born – in hell – you’ll suffer
No god – to help you – you’ve just got – each other

(lead: Paul)

CHRISTIAN… - Your blood will be ours!
MUSLIM…. - Your soul shall eternally rot!
BELIEVER…. - We deny your so-called god!
SATAN…. - The inner strength is in our blood!

(tremelo abuse: Stephan)
Track Name: The Sweet Suffering
Obey and open wide, let me penetrate you with my lies
I am the one divine, approach my facial shrine

Another piece of meat, you play the bitch in heat
Your face will be defaced, you’ll taste the seeds of hate

Your innocence is lost
(you want to be) A star at any cost
Your dreams are to be shattered
Your body to be splattered

I am the god of gore, a sexual carnivore
Face down on the floor, feel me deep you cunting whore

Your blood is everywhere, screams of pain and despair
Your intestines adorn the floor, and decorate my walls

Your innocence is lost
(you want to be) A star at any cost
Your dreams are to be shattered
Your body to be splattered


Defloration, Humiliation, Violation, Devastation

(lead: Paul)

Your dreams are shattered, your body is splattered
Your life’s destroyed, the sow is mine
