The most recent song on the recording-- written around December/January 2015.


Coursing through the black,
a shadow over dark waves.
It emerges into
a world ripe for attack.
Calculating slowly,
its bloody ways,
the dawn of a new age
is at hand.

The tides retreat
Knowing it is back
Snuffing the light away
and burning all idols
Black spectre hunts
end of days
Ripping inhumanity
a nightmarish haze.

They came in the night
Hunting our souls
Erecting great funeral pyres
They broke us like twigs
Thrown to the wind
Regarding life with only ire.

Paltry resistance,
crumbles before
the great beast’s rise
To even attempt.
is to give voice
To mockery against such powers
Black spectre ripping evil
Culling the sheep.
out of this world
Barbaric atrocities
What once was
evil now is.

Do you not see
Folly eternal in defying me?
Through me your finest works were fed to scree
Crushing hopes beneath scorned pleas
Piled before unholy burial
Life is forsaken for control adversarial.


from In the Court of Nyarlathotep, released May 18, 2016
