about

Our sophomore album shows a drastic stylistic change into Blackened and Melodic Death Metal territory. "Of Chaos and the Void" takes inspiration from the likes of Dissection, Necrophobic and Thulcandra both musically and lyrically in almost an hour long concept album detailing a narrative of the end of all time and space.

Track Name: All That I Despise
Patterns of quanta swirling through all time
Endless dimensions and endless evil lines
Random existence brings forth a world to see
A sphere of madness among the cosmic sea

The pulsing currents flowing through all of our veins
Are the lie of life
All that I despise
The branching patterns of the universal dream
Prisons of the mind
All that I despise

Our world of sorrow tries desperately to be
To feel the nothing that waits beyond the tree
Dark roots of chaos, the truth that few can see
Will be the pathways to set our spirits free

The vessels holding all our souls within the flesh
Are the lie of life
All that I despise
The countless aeons under laws that dictate death
Prisons of the mind
All that I despise

The walls of time
Come crashing down
Crushing the pillars
The foundation of it all
Look for the signs
And heed the call
When chaos reigns
And existence shall fall

To the omniverse an end must come to pass
A paradigm to return us to the past
Before this horror of existence came to be
To the void beyond, eternal rest in peace

The world around us and the air that we all breathe
Are the lie of life
All that I despise
The endless cycle of our wanting and our needs
Prisons of the mind
All that I despise
Track Name: Beyond the Light
Under the sky we live our days until we finally die
We seek our fate and destiny, but know the end is nigh
These things we want and worlds me make are meaningless you see
Our god is Death and soon he'll come to take both you and me

Through all days
And into night
We seek the truth
Beyond the light

Reaching out to find the truth we know that we all need
What lies beyond our present doom? Where does all of this lead?
There is no god other than Death, religion is a lie
So when it all comes to an end do we just simply die?

Through all days
And into night
We seek the truth
Beyond the light

When the funeral chant begins to swell
We hold our thoughts and nothing else
What comes of us and our energy?
Will all of us just cease to be?
When the end comes and tolls the bell
We are our thoughts and nothing else
What will our course lead us to see?
Is all of this just another dream?

And when Death's ship I shall embark
I'll see the light beyond the dark
Take hold the flame within my soul
I know the place that I will go
The only truth is here and now
In this place where it allows
Between the worlds of life and death
I call to Chaos with my dying breath

In the end I ask of you to seek the truth you know
Look in yourself and find the path beyond the place Death goes
We can not see what lies ahead, but we choose where to lead
Into the dark and through the light, to Chaos set us free

Through all days
And into night
We seek the truth
Beyond the light
Track Name: Awaken Chaos
Shadow beyond the veil of night
Reveal the secrets of the cosmic lie
God of darkness grant us your sight
Bring us the knowledge to destroy all life

Chaos return to your rightful place
Give us the key to unlock the door
Reign eternal in acausal space
Erase existence for forevermore

Prometheus, stealer of fire
Lead us to the gateway that we desire
Bring forth the coming of Sitra Ahra
Awaken Chaos

Beyond perception lies the truth unknown
Primordial gnosis of anti-cosmic law
The blackest fire beneath our flesh and bone
Return us all to the gaping maw

Lucifer, bringer of light
Lead us to the gateway to eternal night
Bring forth the coming of Sitra Ahra
Awaken Chaos

Moloch
Beelzebub
Lucifuge Rofocale
Astaroth
Na'amah
Asmodeus
Belphegor
Adramalech
Ba'al
Lilith
Satan
Azerate

Unleash the dark dimensions of wrathful chaos
Unite the eleven gods of truth denied
The fireborn shall embrace the end before us
Exact our vengeance for darkness defied

Loki, denier of ethos
Lead us to the gateway of darkness
Bring forth the coming of Sitra Ahra
Awaken Chaos
Track Name: Form of Madness (The Descent - Part I)
[The Listener]
I watch the shadows
They speak in tongues
Their formless whispers
They don't belong
Is this just madness?
My brain gone wrong?
Voices get louder
They've been here all along

[The Voice]
I am real you are not mad
I am a god and you're my friend
I have a purpose for your life
You are an instrument of the end

[The Listener]
I do not know who or what you are
This thing that's speaking from afar
This is the first time I understand
What form of madness do you lend?
You've spoken to me for so long
Stuck in my head like some twisted song
Lost in my mind I can't defend
What form of madness am I in?

[The Voice]
Please do not fear
I mean no wrong
I've been here with you
For so very long
This is not madness
I am your friend
I need you to help me
Bring forth the end

I am your god of life and death
You must now do what I command
You have the will to take my place
You are my instrument of the end

[The Listener]
I know my place and where you stand
How may I bring about the end?
What should I do, my oldest friend?
What form of madness could I lend?
There is a face beneath my skin
It's waiting with an evil grin
Is this the power that you lend?
This form of madness I'm now in

[The Voice]
With the power of blood
You can take my throne
With the wrath of Chaos
You must kill them all

[The Listener]
I hear your call
And I'll obey
Now that I've heard
What you have to say
I'll be at peace
In eternal night
When I am god
Of death and life

[The Voice]
I am your god
You are my child
You must now rise and take my place
You will be god
None shall defy
You will rise up and claim your place

[The Listener]
I can not fail you
My will is strong
I'll do your bidding
I am your son
The throne awaits me
I can do no wrong
I know my purpose
It's been there all along

[The Voice]
I thank you child, now go forth
There are so many souls to send
You have a will to end all life
You are an instrument of the end

[The Listener]
I know my place and where I'll stand
I go now to bring forth the end
Now for the first time I understand
This form of madness I can lend
You've spoken to me for so long
And now I know that I'm your son
I am the embodiment of sin
This form of madness I am in
Track Name: Alone With Death (The Descent Part III)
[The Listener]
I open my eyes and see a world of blasphemies
I must destroy all that does not serve my will
This pitiful place mocking and surrounding me
I have only one desire, I live for the kill

[The Voice]
You doom them to death
With your every breath
Their souls must be sent
To bring forth the end

[The Listener]
This is my future
Paid for with blood
I'll live forever
I'll become a god

[Both]
And in my kingdom of endless night
I ascend to the throne
I see the world with the one true sight
In my will I am alone

[The Listener]
This is my future
Baptized in blood
I take your life
The way of the gods

[Both]
And in my kingdom of endless night
I ascend to the throne
I see the world with the one true sight
In my will I am alone

[The Voice]
Crush this world
And bathe in blood
By your hand
You will be god

[The Listener]
All the world
Will end in blood
By my hand
I am your god
You will die
Drowning in blood
I will ascend
I am your god

[The Listener]
Darkness take my soul

[The Voice]
I am Death and I am your will

[The Listener]
Break these chains of meaningless life

[The Voice]
I walk among you, a god of eternal night
Track Name: A Black Ash Inheritance
Life so formless and cold
A curse to live throughout time
Chaos imprisoned to a soul
Existence, the ultimate crime

Burning everything to dust
Doing whatever we must
This is a black ash inheritance
Ending all decrepit life
In a final firey strike
We leave a black ash inheritance

Rotten is this broken mold
Putrescence is the being of the world
Nothing of worth to extol
In this repugnant order that we know

Burning everything to dust
Doing whatever we must
This is a black ash inheritance
Ending all decrepit life
In a final firey strike
We leave a black ash inheritance

A stench of death rises forth
From the air of this scorched Earth
We are all just rotten filth
Creating the tragedy of birth

Burning everything to dust
Doing whatever we must
This is a black ash inheritance
Ending all decrepit life
In a final firey strike
We leave a black ash inheritance
Track Name: Children of the Darkest Night
Across the void
We are dimming stars
We have no choice
The end shall come

Out in the night walking our own path
We are the forces of chaotic wrath
We set the course far beyond our sight
We are the children of the dying light

Across the void
We are dimming stars
Of the dying light
We have no choice
The end shall come
In the darkest night

Bring us forth
Far beyond
Ancient gods
Of the dark

Out in the night walking our own path
We are the forces of chaotic wrath
We set the course far beyond our sight
We are the children of the dying light

In secret ritual we seek the truth
By rite of passage we find the proof
We have awakened to the end of all
All that we know is destined to fall

Bring us forth
Far beyond
Ancient gods
Of the dark

Our silent gods await beyond
In darkness we shall dwell
The threads of life begin to fray
At the tolling of the knell
A crushing blow to cosmic law
Brings ultimate collapse
All order ends and chaos wins
The end has come to pass

We are the children of the darknest night
We are the children of the dying light

Into the void with open arms
We welcome nothingness
There is no time when all is gone
A true eternal rest
The shifting forms within the dark
Call out to all of us
They are our kin, the special ones
Black flames born of chaos

Out in the night walking our own path
We are the forces of chaotic wrath
We set the course far beyond our sight
We are the children of the dying light

Bring us forth
Far beyond
Ancient gods
Of the dark

Beyond the light, following the path
Joining the forces of chaotic wrath
There is a course far beyond our sight
We are the children of the darkest night
Track Name: The End of All (The Descent - Finale)
[The Voice]
Come forth my child
And seize your throne

[The Listener]
What madness have I done?
It was all a lie?
Curse you desolate one
I am only a pawn

[The Voice]
So now you see?
You are nothing to me
You did your part
Now I'll feast on your heart

[The Listener]
I welcome death
I have done so much wrong
In this world I have doomed
By my hand all shall fall into Hell

This horrible dream
In deepest sin
The Abyss calls to me
Is this the end?

[The Voice]
What is this?
Do not interfere!
You have no right
To defy me here!

[The Abyss]
There is a way to defeat him and win
Come deeper still and release me again
I will destroy all between here and Earth
Is that not better than forever be cursed?

[The Listener]
I take the side of the one in the dark
Nothing to lose but the chains on my heart

[The Abyss]
Quickly now unlock the gates to my keep
Of chaos and shadow forever in sleep
I will bring all of this back to the start
Negate existence as all falls apart

[The Listener]
Nothingness embraces me
I was never alive
Only darkness and the void
Existence was a lie

[The Abyss]
I rule in acausal space
All that once was now is not
There is no time in this place
Forever dreaming in the night

[The Listener]
There is no death
There is no right or wrong
Only chaos now sits on the throne
In the end all is gone
