The child is ripped from the womb of the whore As the altar of flesh soaks in blood The candles burn bright in the shadow of gore For the Blasphemous call of the dark Drink from the chalice, this ichor of life As the clandestine rites are pronounced This black magic calls on the princes of Hell With the force to beguile the crown Vile congregation of the damned! Black divinations bring power from hell Manifest poisons and bless them with spell Sin’s congregation with death and disease Hail the eternal one! Arcane ambition infecting the soul Forged execrations to regain control Grave premonitions of efforts obscene Hail the infernal one! The venom of vengeance in clandestine form Will bring death to the traitors within The outbreak of malice will unleash the storm And blacken the might of the Sun The profit of murder and lust for revenge Decimates all that stand in the way The father and sons die to end her torment Drowned by hatred, they slowly decay The sinister confessions of the cursed! Black divinations bring power from hell Manifest poisons and bless them with spell Sin’s congregation with death and disease Hail the eternal one! Arcane ambition infecting the soul Forged execrations to regain control Grave premonitions of efforts obscene Hail the infernal one! The burning court awaits you now Face the judgement The punishment for broken vows The heretics will die in pain Face the torment Endure the devastating shame Black divinations bring power from hell Manifest poisons and bless them with spell Sin’s congregation with death and disease Hail the eternal one! Arcane ambition infecting the soul Forged execrations to regain control Grave premonitions of efforts obscene Hail the infernal one!

Behold, the phantom gathering - an outpouring of sin Where the air is still, the cries are shrill, the dances widdershins Among carnal depravity, the sisterhood conspire As they cast the bloody crucifix into the fire now Rise up from the netherworld On Tridents impaled The cracking of the devil’s scourge Servants of chaos, Satan prevails Spectres of the Blood Moon Sabbath In Faustian sermons Spectres of the Blood Moon Sabbath Feeding the flame in rotten perversion They howl their morbid mantras as they haunt the misty glades While the sudden flood of virgin blood decorates their blades Carve out the eyes of purity, defile the divine Strip the soul of sanctity and give in to the fire now Rise up from the netherworld On Tridents impaled The cracking of the devil’s scourge Servants of chaos, Satan prevails Spectres of the Blood Moon Sabbath In Faustian sermons Spectres of the Blood Moon Sabbath Feeding the flame - in rotten perversion they kill Becurse the holy sacrament - befoul the book of Christ The coven bark, the matriarch anoints the staff of flight Gaze into the other side with spirits intertwined Into realms of obscurity and one with the fire now Rise up from the netherworld On Tridents impaled The cracking of the devil’s scourge Servants of chaos, Satan prevails Spectres of the Blood Moon Sabbath In Faustian sermons Spectres of the Blood Moon Sabbath Feeding the flame in rotten perversion

Silhouettes of bloody murder paint the tombs tonight The burnt remains of missing children are soaked in orange light Nocturnal acts of savage torture fill the creature’s lust Among the fog and stench of sulphur, bodies draped in dust Feeding on virgin blood The monster that haunts the necropolis With iron teeth, he hunts The vampire’s grave Devil’s disease The vampire’s grave The fatal bite Rising from his daylight slumber of a curse possessed Deprived of all but sanguine hunger - seeking perfect flesh Arm the young with stakes and crosses - send the beast to hell The grizzly maw stained red with slaughter - nothing left but shells Feeding on virgin blood The monster that haunts the necropolis With iron teeth, he hunts The vampire’s grave Devil’s disease The vampire’s grave Breathe Poison The vampire’s grave Devil’s disease The vampire’s grave The death spell of night The vampire’s grave Devil’s disease The vampire’s grave

Forgive my thoughts of these impure desires For they are the work of the beast Under God’s watch I have played with the fire The force of the serpent unleashed Formless and voiceless, yet still in command Twisting the faith of the meek Losing myself in the realm of the damned Fearing The pleasures I seek Sever the flesh with shards of the devil’s disease Wallow in shame, succumb to heresy This mouth that once sang his praise now spews cryptic filth Satan has tightened his grip! Bewitched, obsessed, possessed Beyond the convent walls! Seduced, oppressed, unblessed Among these sacred halls! Bewitched, obsessed, possessed Beyond the convent walls! Seduced, oppressed, unblessed Among these sacred halls! Shed sacred flesh for these forces unknown As into the threshold I creep Beguilt and berate me for sins unatoned The scars of impiety weep Lambs of hypocrisy follow the lies Blasphemous I have become Off I descend into the womb of the night Heading into the unknown Sever the flesh with shards of the devil’s disease Wallow in shame, succumb to heresy This mouth that once sang his praise now spews cryptic filth Satan has tightened his grip! Bewitched, obsessed, possessed Beyond the convent walls! Seduced, oppressed, unblessed Among these sacred halls! Bewitched, obsessed, possessed Beyond the convent walls! Seduced, oppressed, unblessed Among these sacred halls! Lechery within the house of God Atop the altar - devil’s seed Greet the predatory afterglow As the congregation bleed Fornicator! Sacrilegious bitch! With the serpent in her eyes The perversion of the crucifix Christ denied! Bewitched, obsessed, possessed Beyond the convent walls! Seduced, oppressed, unblessed Among these sacred halls!

Black horned crown! Crush the trinity of lies and ride into the night Crosses turned down! Tear the angels from the sky with infernal delight Brandish the sceptre! Trampled under cloven hoof in the triumph of sin Maleficent spectres! Kill on consecrated ground - let the slaughter begin Curse the fucking gods! Bring forth the fire of Lucifer’s will Bestial legions are summoned to kill Ravage the cross, rise of the Antichrist We are the cult of the goat! Savage Blasphemy Savage Fucking Blasphemy Father of lies! Infernal prophecies of death from the gospel of filth Barbaric demise! Crucify the pious cunts and drink the blood that is spilled Destroy the holy! Quench your thirst with Christian souls set alight in the blaze Worship the cruelty! Cast into the burning dark to annihilate the faith Crush the fucking gods! Bring forth the fire of Lucifer’s will Bestial legions summoned to kill Ravage the cross, rise of the Antichrist We are the cult of the goat! Bring forth the fire of Lucifer’s will Bestial legions summoned to kill Ravage the cross, rise of the Antichrist Soldiers of Satan bring merciless death Hordes of the demon conjure the abyss Defile the cross, triumph of the Antichrist We are the cult of the goat! Savage Blasphemy Savage Fucking Blasphemy

Hexennacht 02:48
The storming of the terror-ridden mountain of doom Let the black magick ritual commence Licked by the flames as they dance in the gloom The sisters of night join in trance Insidious, lascivious They spurn the words of Christ The mass of the nefarious Upon this bloody night Iniquitous, Ubiquitous Spread evil like disease Haggard and Cadaverous Hexennacht Can you hear the witches calling Hexennacht Hexennacht On devils’ wings the cult are soaring Hexennacht The suffocating smoke surrounds the cauldron of fire Let The glorious wicked ascend Riding the storms as they enter the witching hour The spirits of the coven transcend Insidious, lascivious They spurn the words of Christ The mass of the nefarious Upon this bloody night Iniquitous, Ubiquitous Spread evil like disease Haggard and Cadaverous Hexennacht Can you hear the witches calling Hexennacht Hexennacht On devils’ wings the cult are soaring Hexennacht Insidious, lascivious They spurn the words of Christ The mass of the nefarious Upon this bloody night Iniquitous, Ubiquitous Spread evil like disease Haggard and Cadaverous Hexennacht Can you hear the witches calling Hexennacht Hexennacht On devils’ wings the cult are soaring Hexennacht Hexennacht Can you hear the witches calling Hexennacht Hexennacht On devils’ wings the cult are soaring Hexennacht

Forked tongues lash breasts in the haze of the crimson glow Death screams echo for days in the unholy smoke Shadows rising Corpses writhing Blood orgy of the she-devils! Scar the womb with Satan’s fire Blood orgy of the she-devils! The torment storm of black desire Decrepit angels befouled as the darkness is born Carnal frenzy corrupts in the sign of the horns Candles burning Evil lurking Blood orgy of the she-devils! Scar the womb with Satan’s fire Blood orgy of the she-devils! The torment storm of black desire “Come to me! I worship all that you bleed” Sinful host Kiss the goat and arise! Rest in festering slime! Blood orgy of the she-devils! Scar the womb with Satan’s fire Blood orgy of the she-devils! The torment storm of black desire Blood orgy of the she-devils! Bestial, the serpent’s power Blood orgy of the she-devils! Purity of flesh devoured

Enveloped by the black wings of Satan Found lain beneath the carrion cross The tattered remnants of scripture - marred with blood A shrine that ruptures all that is holy The devil’s claws caress divine graves Cling to the mouth of the abyss Before impiety drags her down The mist is descending Upon the boughs of that cursed old tree The Winds of winter lamenting Death awaits by the council's decree By the light of the moon This pallid portrait of death Suffer the view from the noose With one last breath Tighten the cord of demise Callously raised to the sky In violent perdition you’ll dwell Fucked in the fires of hell Her spirit benighted The din of the flock as they circle the tree Final rites are recited Rid the spirit and set the dead free By the light of the moon This pallid portrait of death Suffer the view from the noose With one last breath Tighten the cord of demise Callously raised to the sky In violent perdition you’ll dwell Fucked in the fires of hell The pendulous vessel resigns While the soul drifts infernal Harken to powerful forces maligned And Suffer eternally Echoes ring out from the void From the sin-ridden temple The ruins of sanctity fucking destroyed By the devil’s apostasy
