Track Name: Apotheosis of Death: I. Axiom
Satan....Master..
Rejoice in Blasphemy
Track Name: Apotheosis of Death: II. As The Vultures Descend
Slumbering in the abyss, murky visions of death
Gasping for air, inhaling my last breath
Crucified to the earth, by the sign of the Goat
The cold steel chain, gripped tight around my throat
Lucid I awake, no longer a nightmare
The black monks expressionless, as I am made brutally aware
The startling revelation, that I am but carrion
To the birds above, a cruel death for a barbarian
Begging to the gods, for their holy mercy
But for my blasphemy, they forbade me
Torment and torture, beyond belief
I scream out in vain, for my release
I shall become, their unholy feast
To those foul, crooked, feathered beasts
Awaiting the true horror, no longer can I pretend
Still alive, as the vultures descend

Pre-Chorus:

(You will fall!) Down towards an impious earth of unspeakable blasphemy
(There you will see!) Unimaginable despair and cruelty beyond corporeal suffering
(One will stand!) Upon the precipice of life and death, a revenant will rise in doom
(The Cosmos shall burn!) Sentenced the traitorous swine to endless darkness and gloom

Chorus:

You will never see, the burning darkness that devours, an inverted Jacob’s Ladder for the Apotheosis of Death
The Sol Invictus devoid, slitting his throat triumphantly, bereft of life, suffocating on his last blood-curdled breath
In all its blasphemy, nothing will be left save ash, in the cosmos created by the Apotheosis of Death
Upon the throne of victory, those who are too weak, shall eternally bleed in torment in Hades beneath

Staring out, with vacant eyes
My spirit wretched, from my flesh
Solemnly the black monks, stare jeeringly
Excruciatingly, as the shedding of skin begins atrociously
Beyond all hope, my life extinguished
As my bones are naught but the birds’ excrement
Seeking solstice, in the reign of the vultures descent
Upon Jacob’s Ladder, I shall ascend

Pre-Chorus:

(You will fall!) Down towards an impious earth of unspeakable blasphemy
(There you will see!) Unimaginable despair and cruelty beyond corporeal suffering
(One will stand!) Upon the precipice of life and death, a revenant will rise in doom
(The Cosmos shall burn!) Sentenced the traitorous swine to endless darkness and gloom

Chorus:

You will never see, the burning darkness that devours, an inverted Jacob’s Ladder for the Apotheosis of Death
The Sol Invictus devoid, slitting his throat triumphantly, bereft of life, suffocating on his last blood-curdled breath
In all its blasphemy, nothing will be left save ash, in the cosmos created by the Apotheosis of Death
Upon the throne of victory, those who are too weak, shall eternally bleed in torment in Hades beneath

Demonic laughter, at my own insanity
At the total absurdity of my life draining before me
Spitting catatonic, upon the crooked face of death
Lungs collapsing, I shall become one with violence

I shall become, the hammer of doom
Damn mankind, like a stillborn in the womb
The despair of humanity, the bane of existence
Vultures descend, I shall become one with violence

Wielding black death, the downfall of hypocrisy
The torrential waters, of Acheron shall flow within me
The black monks, established weakness
Embodying the rage, I shall become one with violence

Smite the disease of spirit, by becoming one with death
The disembodied souls, deceived into shacklement
The cosmos must burn, manically, I must transcend
Upon the inverted Jacob’s Ladder, I descend...
Track Name: Apotheosis of Death: III. Ascension Through Vanquished Flesh
Whispers of my enemies long dead echo around me
I beg not for forgiveness or their venomous mercy
My mortal coil crushed into pieces like my broken bones
The conquering spirit ignited in its destructive glory

"Through Emaciated Flesh, I arise..."

Forsaken and alone, (I gaze upon) the emptiness of space
The stars in their wickedness taunting me like my enemies
I shall drink from their skulls and destroy their legacy
Transmutation through flesh, let this wolf of Romulus ascend

I am a sworn enemy of all that is holy
My legacy will be my immortality.......arise the Ouroboros in Flames x2
As the swarm of vultures pursues
Rapidly my life is consumed...... arise the Ouroboros in Flames x2

Upon the Precipice of Life and Death, I rise in this accursed ground
To the bonded chains of flesh, I am no longer bound
I was born of this earth and soon this torment will end
A revenant beyond flesh, this wolf of Romulus shall ascend

Crawling back from the depths (ON WINGS OF DEATH)
An agonising rebirth as I climb the Jacob's Ladder
All of my mortal fibre seek out the will to power!
Let this wolf of Romulus descend
In vengeance, I arise through vanquished flesh
None shall mourn for the disgraced dead
Let this wolf of Romulus descend
The Ouroboros will arise in flames (ON WINGS OF DEATH)
Entombed in Ashes this world shall be
Transmutated through flesh (ON WINGS OF DEATH)
Sacrifice, perish and demise am I
Viciously the vultures tear at my broken flesh
Bow down to the Apotheosis of Death
Let this wolf of Romulus descend
My half-eaten carcass a sacrifice to the earth
Bear witness to this glorious rebirth
Let this wolf of Romulus descend
The slaves shall echo my ethos (ON WINGS OF DEATH)
Let this wolf of Romulus descend...(UNTO THEIR FLESH) x2

"Through Emaciated Flesh, I arise."

"Through Vanquished Flesh, I arise."
Track Name: Apotheosis of Death: IV. The Corpse Of Your Divinity Now Burns
Conqueror of Death....no longer bound to the flesh
I seek out those traitors....spineless idolatries
Their sacrificial blood smeared... a weak cult unrevered
The Earth is my altar...the weak consumed in slaughter

Chorus:

Salvation! Achieved through attrition, the mortal coils...scattered like ashes
Transgression! This plight of man, is trampled upon...like weak lambs
Execution! Venomous vermin is driven upon... their blood smears the skies
Procession! The Mars Invictus alight in victory as the corpse of your divinity now burns

In the cries of the condemned...through sacrifice I ascend
Consume thy mortal coils...through eternal struggle and toil
Ravaged the feeble flesh... the pious put to death
Out of the chaos born....a new age of strength dawns

Chorus

Death I have overcome and a glorious standard I shall forever be

Extinguishing the holy flame of their theology, of their hypocrisy

Through violence I was born, through their deaths I ascend.

As worms writhing in the invincible sun, disillusioned in their miasma

The suffering of fools shackled to their idiot disease, put to the hammer!

Traitors shall be nothing but dust beneath my feet

The mockery of your constitutions
Paupers spit on your forsaken ethos
As your marble temples burn
In defiance I reign supreme

As vultures descend on carrion
As wolves devour the weak
The worms will never ascend
Flesh burns against the conquering spirit

Ecce Homo Superior
Through the miasma
A new dawn awakens
Upon the Spirit of Man

Ouroborus ever consuming the eternal flames of your divinity

Drenched in thine enemies blood, proclaiming our victory

Lepers of spirit - put to the flame

Slitting the Sol Invictus' throat, plunging the world into a new enlightenment

The Death of the Gods, the Death of Man's depravement

A barbarian once was I, a conqueror of gods and men now stands before you!
Track Name: Apotheosis of Death: VI. ...Unto the Lightning Swords Of Conquest (Mars Invictus)
Riding forth on wings of death
Vengeance consumes my very breath
Iconoclast of weakness
Unto the Lightning Swords of Conquest

Chorus:

Rejoice in blasphemy
As we ascend through conquered flesh
And the traitors are put to the flame
The Mars Invictus stands unconquered
Sacrifice, perish and demise
Your divinity stripped from your flesh
Within the twilight of humanity
Lightning swords usher the new age
Cleansed in blood and iron
Worship Mars Invictus!

Brothers! Unite yourselves in fire
Test your might upon the funeral pyre
Scorn thine eyes of deceit
Broken thy shackles of defeat
Lead the weak to the furnace
Thy will be merciless
An epitaph of destruction and unrest
Arise! Lightning Swords of Conquest

Chorus

Let's set the fucking night on fire!

Let's make the fucking heavens bleed!

Let's bring this fucking universe to its knees!

Behold! The flames of indignation burn eternal
Behold! The Chaos Dragon giving birth to Order
Behold! The doctrines of old condemned in fire
Behold! Iconoclasm cleansed in molten steel

Grief-stricken mothers shall weep, forsaken eternal
Through this age of steel and blood for blood
These corrupt and bloated Elysian Fields must burn
Drink from the cup of chaos and taste triumphant victory

Behold! The lightning swords of conquest
Behold! The dawn of man's awakening
Behold! This pact of steel made flesh
Behold! Humanity's triumph in fire

The old men speak of peace, but peace is for the dead
One whom seeks immortality, must never strive for peace
Smash the holy tablets of this accursed faith, reclaim our fate
An Apotheosis towards Mars Invictus is to conquer death itself

As we stand
Upon the Precipice
Of Life and Death

Exalted are we
Crowned infinity
Our Apotheosis
A triumphant victory
Track Name: Fire & Triumph
Will languish no longer
The winds of war are calling
To subjugate, to conquer
To bring an end to Man's suffering
As feathered serpents
We come to raze these temples
Set alight these places of worship
In strife and discord we are born

Slit the throats of those whom pray
Condemn their bodies to a shallow grave
Drag their shameful corpses beneath our heels
In contemptuous pride

Chorus:

Strike the flesh!
Heed thy call!
Chaos rising!
Heed thy call!

I go cold turkey on the masses' opiate
And I will not submit
I give no quarter to these domesticated dogs
Salivating at the taste of their own shit

Destroy their bloodlines, smash them against the rocks
Wrought terrible retribution

This grand descent of flames
The wailing of the women
The execution of slaves
Glorious exaltation of ravaged flesh

The winds of war are calling me
Beckoning towards conquest and glory

Chorus

Within the flames of battle
We are born triumphant

Strike the flesh!
Chaos rising!

In your transect
Venus grant me power
To become the Chaos star
The star of mourning
The impregnable fortress
The iconoclastic flame
To strike as a serpent
A soul made of molten iron
Warriors of tempestuous steel
Arisen through smoke and ash
Within the flames of battle
We are born triumphant

Arise! O'Warriors of the Flame
My brothers of smoke and ash
Plunderers and Marauders
Victorious....mighty!

Let the iniquitous blood flow
Rain terror upon our enemies
In unholy retribution and chaos
We are one

Your tyranny has given birth to a Chaos star
Legions have heeded the call
And through everlasting suffering
We are born in fire and triumph

We are born...
In fire and triumph...

Fire
Fire
Fire
Triumph

The inner wolf has been caged for far too long
In ash and embers, one must become the strong
Witnessing the destruction of an epoch gone wrong...

Bear witness to a smouldering Chaos star
Boundless this anthem shall be heard afar
And through everlasting suffering, We are....

(We are...)
FIRE AND TRIUMPH!
Track Name: Abandon All Hope
Abandon All Hope

"Through me you pass into the city of woe...
Through me you pass into eternal pain...
Through me you go amongst the lost people...
Eternal, and eternal I shall endure...

Omnes relinquite spes, o vos intrantes!"

Chorus:
ABANDON ALL HOPE (x2)
Bow before us in violent supplication
ABANDON ALL HOPE (x2)
For you have entered a realm of no remorse
ABANDON ALL HOPE (x2)
Your soul enthralled in exalted conflagration
ABANDON ALL HOPE (X2)
Strike your flesh until it bears the mark of Exordium Mors

Devoutly the masses enter
Cursed, damned wraiths devoid of life
Bloodshed about to ignite
Sanctified ground made holy no more

Chorus

In libation, our blood is spilt
Mercilessly the wraiths devour
Enraptured by our unholy power
Violence enthroned in chaos supreme

"Omnes relinquite spes, o vos intrantes!"

Servants of the sanguinary
Dominated by our incendiary
Suffer the barbaric onslaught
This vile, wretched horde
The enfeebled are consumed
Condemned into servitude
Flesh scourged bearing the sign of
Exordium Mors...

Violence consecrated upon flesh
Demonic devotion given breath
Baptised in Phelegethon
Hailing To Mega Therion
Our pestilent horde extricated
The bloodletting venerated
Undying breath forever hailing
Exordium Mors...

From the dead marshes of the Underworld
This legion of destruction shall engulf the living
A Phalanx of death and decay unfurled
With the fervour of battle, we wield our axes high
All Pantheons, all structures shall be razed
A scorched earth left in its wake
No women, no child, no priest shall be saved
And all that shall remain is the bloody sign of Exordium Mors

Suffocating death and darkness spread across the land
The stench of death and decay, running through our veins
Kings and emperors shall perish by our hands
As they fall beneath our bloodied blades
No mercy, no atonement, no remorse
Just mangled corpses upon mountains of decomposing flesh
Be forewarned for when you see Exordium Mors
Abandon all fucking hope!
Track Name: Blade Of Brutus
"Et tu, Brutus..."

Face me coward
This is my declaration of war
The die hath being cast
The Gates of Janus split open

The Ides of March
Forsaken and bloody
Sink the blade into your tyranny
Cut out your sanctimonious heart

I may be condemned
For all eternity
Banished for treachery
The burden of your existence

I will usher in a new age
At the destruction of my own
Branded and accursed
These temples must burn

I am the vengeance
Amongst opposition
I remain steadfast
Unwavering disposition

Penetrate the flesh
Retribution in hate
No words of mercy
Shall halt your fate

I am a traitor
To life's existence
Hear now these words
Sworn 'sic semper tyrannis'

Chorus:

For I am He....
Blade of Brutus (x2)

In arrogant pride
I relish the deed
Dignity denied
I piss upon your grave

Prostrate before me
And submit to your death
Now the world will see
That a god still bleeds

I am a traitor
To life's existence
Here now these words
Sworn 'sic semper tyrannis'

Chorus

The glory of your kingdom
Crestfallen and defeated as your withered body
23 wounds of cold animosity
With this I submit your life disgorged and disembodied
And I will submit to no god
No man, no master from this wretched existence

Deny you existence
23 bloody curses
Discord amongst the senate
Destruction of the righteous

An undignified death
Summons you to your grave

Adversarial
Your life held in contempt
Denied a burial
No tears shall be wept

(Blade, Blade, Blade of Brutus)

If this divinity means life
Then cast me an apostate
Brand me the conspirator
An enemy of the state

Forsaken actions
But I bear no shame
Unhallowed words
I spit upon your name

The masses may sing
About your graces
Those that presume their king
Shall die by my hand

Although my life
Is soon to end
I remain the knife
That ends all sacrosanct

Sworn 'sic semper tyrannis'
I'll carry this to my grave
Extinguish now my existence
With this accursed blade

At the cost of my own life
And the destruction of an era
No more words can you offer
To stop the wheels of fate

History forever changed
As the plebs cry out in vain
Doomed sceleratus
Set their temples aflame

The die hath being cast
I stand by my convictions
And if I must stand alone
Then I shall prosper in their hatred

One will rise again
To sink the blade
Amongst the dying flames
Of another era condemned to death

My life now forfeit
As I submit to death
I remain a traitor
To all of life's existence

A traitor to life's existence...
(Sworn 'sic semper tyrannis'...)
