Track Name: Lairs of the Ascended Masters
Lyrics By Matt Brown and Elijah Whitehead

Amnu Na'ak Beru - Na'ak Ba'ran!

Hail the victorious
Of a once exalted throne

Brak'tal O'minn and his powers that I've gripped through his talisman
Ik'thran'ithul, and his kin, they shall pay (and be slain)
By my hand, as we assert our dominion on this earth

Siezed into a dream of our world

Under disguise through a guise of lies
Just to keep them docile
But we escape these fools
In the lairs of the ascended masters

Behold the tome of the ascended zones
It is the gate of forbidden keys
Of a mind of the highest design
Resisting death -- I alone will live the
Test of time to assume my throne

Siezed into a dream of our world
Siezed into a dream of salvation

Under the skies as my portal does
Slide from the trace -- disaster
But I will show these fools
As I destroy all these fucking bastards

Quicken the decimation of the slaves
We're sent to lead astray from truth
And the sacred magic

The truth of their sacred masters

Pain

The Tower of Dark Light
Their contrivance - my foreordination!

Hell shall be unleashed as our armies
are unsheathed
the Elder Council - they face extinction!

And now -- Orgone, it activates the Sonus
Apex doth sound
The gates shall be flung open

Now come to me
Feel my pain
Suffer in my world
Brak'Tal O'Minn!

Once lost, with no path
a new order will assume the reign

And with one drop of blood
Added to components conceived
I will reconstruct my body
With aid of unholy trinity

And as we accost the holy temples
of the Sali'un Umm'Thraba
we shall bring to the earth, the blackest flames of hell

Back on Earth ó physically reborn
Again
I'm here to start the war
Of a mind of the highest design
Resisting death -- I alone will live the
Test of time to assume my throne

Siezed into a dream of our world
Siezed into a dream of salvation
Track Name: Liberator of Mages
Lyrics by Greg Vance and Elijah Whitehead

Hundreds of thousands of ages have passed
Since the dawn of the Sali'un -
They had given the gift of the white magic
A resource to the lesser kin
Which had uplifted them from the welk and the desires of evil men

Yet a dark shadow arose from the east
Their purpose settled in blood
A war faring folk with technology
Able to diminish the powers and control the
Minds of the mages - they had become weak

A child is born
Under the sign of the morning star -
The catalyst of prophecy
Im'maud'hi - rise and restore the nature of the word

And like the great beast, they came from the sea
Legions of men chartered by the evil king
Come to destroy the
Land of the ones unamenable to he
And to murder the golden son of the old prophecy

They set fire to the homes
And salted the fields
Raped the mothers and daughters
Shed the blood of the men
Enslaved their sons
And stolen their wealth to do Ik'thran'ithul's will

A great presence had overtaken one of the guard
"This child is mine, now save him and take him afar"
And so they erected their obelisk
Claimed the lands for their own
But the son of the morning
Had been given a new home



Seven years had come and gone
The boy safe in his new home
Unawares of his past - everyday he would ask
The questions that answers would never be known
And his days were spent learning the tongue of the king
Tending the fields and taking up sword
He was destined to be in (the) Narcillian army

In the midst of the night
An apparition appeared before he
Materialized from light from the hearth
The boy startled, fell to his knees

Then the master extended her hand
"The powers of ancients are yours
Go now learn with these tools"
Reached out with her palm and touched his head

Now gone -
Sailed away in whirlwind of shadow

The creative force
Withdrawn to the realm of the unknown

Disease had spread o'er the flock
And the folk had fallen in despair
Without knowing, the boy healed all
And raised the dead fowl
It's stench wafting through the air

Many witnesses came to bear testimony against the boy
Necromancy, unknown to the people, yet punishible by death
Would be his fate without intervention from the ones who know


At last he had been made known of his story
His past, once blackened now brought to light

Ostracized from his town, destiny to overthrow the crown
And restore a new age of light to his kin
Left to focus his craft, a lone mage on the path
Banished to the wilderness to discover the light of the imminent dawn
Track Name: The Sacred Daemonic
Lyrics by Greg Vance and Elijah Whitehead

I've fallen victim to unbroken monotony of servitude
And reluctantly forced to worship the human form
In the thickets of branch and labyrinthine tendrils
And unfamiliar script emerges
"For what secrets doth this script wish to reveal"

In the distance a silhouette emerged
Ancient masonry draped in the infinite vine
And exotic bulbs of prepubescent flowers

The haunting script etched above the crest
Da'at hane'elam - The star inscribed and facing the west
A sanctuary to the preservation of the obscured
Wisdom and ritual binding the magic of Pistis to the mortal plane


Divine Decree has reached and pulled me inside
Found myself in an astral state as if no longer a slave to time
Years had passed by without a single moment lost
Immersed in the mysteries of Yaldabaoth

Pulled from my slumber in the nocturnal hours
Visions seek to sway my path to an illuminating presence
The Masters - calling me by my true name

Im'maud'hi!

With the tree completed
It's monolith self inscribed

(solo - elijah)

In the wilderness seven years had come and gone
Im'maud'hi our hero determined to bring about the light of Dawn
To teach his mysteries to only trusted kin
Destiny! To reverse Ik'thran'ithul's Sins

Buried beneath the obelisks encased in stone
Enchanted gears perpetuating frequencies of confusion
The destruction of these monuments is the key to freeing the minds
Once this hideous curse is broken I will rise

Returned to society and shunned by all
The hermit spat upon and all curses called
Yet kindness was shown by a fellowship of six
Now Seven within Seven his entered apprentice
Sharing the mysteries of Sophia's call
Seven angles now formed the Golden Dawn

(solo - colin butler)

Together, this night we resist the tyrants
And birth the new revolution
We destroy the first monument of control
And the rest are soon to follow


(solo - elijah)

And brought with them Da'at
They rose to meet the path
Of prophecy manifest in flesh

And with coming of dawn
Great works they would spawn
"I beseech thee O Pistis
Guide my hand "


Undoing the workings of tyrants of greed
And they revel in fear as the minds are unleashed

For we shall not stop at once but dismatle all shrines of oppression
Stone by stone we deface
Autocracy erased
And establish our name by subjugation

Surrounded now, by guardians of the king
Brows furrowed and weapons drawn
And with our spells, we cast them into death

For we are the few who dare to rise
Placing the weight the world, solemnly on our backs
Forging a path to mysteries of the ancient one
We await the coming days, with quests whispered from sacred daemons and demigods
Our future is set
Track Name: Invocation of Na'ak Ba'ran
Lyrics by FRATER AZHI DAHAKA and Elijah Whitehead
Partially adapted from the Invocation of Sorath 666

(Ik'thran'ithul reads the invocation of Na'ak Ba'ran)

"O come forth, thou who art the apocalyptic beast. I call out thy name and invoke
thee!

O Na'ak Ba'ran, come forth and make thy presence manifest.

With thy fires of truth
Burn now asunder the veils of illusion

And let now the dawning of the black light's
Timeless aeon commence!"


"They brought with them
Ancient magic of
The goddess

Destroyed my Obelisk
And left my legions
Hanging dead.

They threaten our rule
How then should I proceed, O fallen one?"


"Gather your best men
And intercept them at the ritual summoning.
They willingly give you their locus.
The lover will lead them into ambush."

"Tonight we march by light of moon.
And we shall
Utterly eliminate all who would stand against the throne."

"NO!
Bring Im'maud'hi alive

I have better plans for them
Banish them to the dark
Arrest the minds of the remaining betrayers
This will silence the rest

Thy reward will be great in Hell"
Track Name: Banishment
Lyrics by Matt Brown

The King and his court have
Discovered my secret powers
And truth of my ways has escaped the dark
and made it into the light
Calling for my banishment by wizard's fire

That day, on the fourth night
We were set to summon creatures from the abyss
But yet we were poisoned
For in our midst's there laid a traitor

All at once ó we could not stop ó the wards and snares of light
Caught surprised by the Royal Guard ó the justice of our land
Fighting back we lost a brother to their magic spells
Weakened our powers we sought retreat ó we had lost and were surely facing hell

Banishment

The first attempt of a golden dawn had been thwarted by ignorance
No truth of my ways will ever see the light
Only darkness of minds will be
Calling for my banishment by wizard's fire

Drug before his highness
We were martyred
All to keep himself in power
Now their works might be justified

Now within their clutches
They've assaulted us
To extract all information of our works
But of course ó we won't be broken, no we won't be broken

Warriors united ó divided we shall fall

As we enter the halls of hypocrisy
My gaze is met with yet another
Master wizard ó whose name I shall dare not speak
He serves the throne

Torture will not work
The powers that be ó they embrace, utilize pure mind extraction
Their Philosopher Stone glows as we enter the vault
Where I know they will surely cast us out to dimensions all but known
We've staved them off so far but we shall

Begin the dark process of their mind meld extraction
As my coven and myself ó our minds stand firmly as one
But over time my fears are beginning to be realized
As our magic ó it dissipates

(solo - Matt Brown)

Our time is short for we know that our life's works secrets
Discovered with and by their hands ó we are done
Now faced with death I can see so clearly
We shall not escape this fate

I cannot bear this thought before me
That this is truly my end of days
The judge and jury of the Elder Council
Has sentenced us ó our time is now short

For the stone is now charging up
To dispel our spirits to doom
While our bodies will remain in a state
Of systemic fatal ruin

Artificial transgressions in place
Our powers are now null and void
For dimensional banishment has
Conquered us and delivered us into our prison

We were set to summon creatures from the abyss
But yet we were poisoned
For in our midst's there laid a traitor?
Track Name: The Adversary, Omnipotent
Lyrics by Matt Brown, James Turk, and Elijah Whitehead
Eternal hails to Aleister Crowley for his timeless contribution.

Drifted to the nether world
Slid from form to form
Unto the ethereal
My chance to probe the darkest secrets

By the fault of our enemies
Delivered unto our goal
By the fault of the greed
Of the paranoid king
His folly shall be his downfall

Forging through the mist and shadow
Searching for the one true ascended master
Calling forth the names revealed unto my ilk
(They are that of our spiritual guide)

For what once had seemed but only a dream began
To appear as real as daylight
O, arise grand deity, arise

He appeared as The Accuser but he called himself God

"I am the God of the unseen and known
Fall before and worship me with faith unquestioned
And allegiance
Offer me your darkest malfeasance
Keeping me within your heart

I keep contol upon the earth
My slaves they disavow the serfs
And as they pray to me
My powers grow

Keep me in your heart,
I'll reward thee with the loftiest
Pleasures of the flesh
I'll reward thee
Keep me in your mind
I'll reward thee with a keen intellect -
That would rival the divines

Keep me in your blood,
I'll reward thee with transcendence
That would rival the annointed
Keep me in your deeds
I'll reward thee supremely
I'll make you king of all

Bereshit - the word was spoken
Send forth the illusion to enslave

By my wisdom the world was made
The word is none other than thee

I uttereth clearly unto thee,
The word is falsehood - the understanding darkness

It is written, for these are times of darkness
And this as a lamp therein:

With the Dagger, destroyeth he
With the Chalice, preserveth he
With the Sonus, redeemeth he
With the Apex, createth thee

With the Dagger, destroyeth he
With the Chalice, preserveth he
With the Sonus, redeemeth he
With the Apex, createth thee

Thee shall behold!
Accumulator passed unto me
Within its sphere, the essence of the word
Brak'tal O'minn - O fallen one
we shall fulfill and end the illusion!"

His powers before me and the world behind
I'll take the given quest - we shall rival the divines!
Unto the earth - give the fallen ones rebirth
All will know truth, as we restore the nature of the word


"If the truth is what you seek,
Come my dear child and follow me,
Realize now that this is no dream.
Behold! The Adversary speaks!"



"Thee shall be god, now seen and known
I've given thee my instruction
Keeping me within your heart

My armies to thee - if my word thou shalt keep
O harbringer ov destruction

You shall be crowned king
If the quest is complete

Earth, as black as sleep before the dream, the true awakening."



Constant but ever fleeting
Answers come with no context
Or meaning

Both the darkness and the light are blinding
Both paths: narrow and winding

Our perception limited to grey in between.
Only to blithely proclaim
Reality as only whatís seen.
All are we, am I?
By imitating grand design.

My gnosis reduced sensitivity
To the framework of eternity
Release the feeble grip of flesh!
The faltering hand of the withered mage
Left the last work undone
Track Name: Terror of a Perilous Quest
Lyrics by Greg Vance and Elijah Whitehead

Entrusted with deed - to slay primordial beasts - that is my quest
That I may harness his dark design

To cut Apex from the crown and join the artifacts in perverse unholy union -
With our might we shall arrive to save our world

Our world

It descended from heaven in smokeless flame
The dagger of ancients inscribed with The Names
To aid in my quest to slay the elder beast
And to forge its apex into the instrument of dreams

Into the labyrinth of Knossos we march
And descend into the bowels of the lower world
Half man and half beast, unlike anything that had been seen
The hallmark of hellbeasts within a dream

Now we prime our attack
Mounting surveillance, our position not blatant
The perception of our magick magnified
Caused this beast to discover in time

DIE

And to the ground my comrade was pinned
Within its grip - in disbelief - could this battle we win?
Before it's teeth sank into the skin
My spell cast to his crown
It turned and relentlessly
Charged against me

Our spells used - now futile
Upon strength we must rely
Realized my only choice, now with dagger in hand, the monstrosity, it must die


My powers in tow and my visions aligned to complete this chthonic test
The hostility of a vicious hellbeast - that is the terror of this perilous quest
Though difficult it be, we shant not concede, to the great horned beast that would rival my destiny
With fulfillment of deeds, crown myself as king, indentured to acquire the apex

Now
Dread has consumed us
Yet If I do not act it shall be us that will be entombed

This hour of danger has been brought before us
Upon my shoulders - on me, the world weighs
Within the inner workings of my mind
The realization, blackest flames we shall bring to all mankind

My powers in tow and my visions aligned to complete this chthonic test
The hostility of a vicious hellbeast - that is the terror of this perilous quest
Though difficult it be, we shant not concede, to the great horned beast that would rival my destiny
With fulfillment of deeds, crown myself as king, indentured to acquire the apex


Summoned forth from the black
An apparition appears
It allows us to escape

I mount the neck of the beast
And draw my dagger in haste
Soon the prison of the soul shall be erased

Its body flailing, and the blade raised on high
White knuckled, gripping its head
A singular thrust to its crest
For the monstrosity, spells its death


As its body crumples to the ground
My dagger removes the sacred horn
It shall resound
Track Name: The Test of Wisdom
Lyrics by Greg Vance and Elijah Whitehead

" I command thee, join me for test of power is complete"
And we oblige, to Thagirion we trek
In the midst of those who bellow grief
We descend
And behold the chatter and gnashing spewed forth from the mouths
Of the fateful dead forever bound in servitude, bitter slaves to the black.

The black hand guideth me beyond the wall of dreams
Where demons dwell amidst the fallen souls and quell their bitter screams
Beneath the grounds we tread, in the halls of the hallowed dead
The burning wisdom in the heart of darkness - manifest

A blinding flash
And clap of thunder
Reveals the obscured path

The keepers of the flame surround he and I
Our hands are bound and our cloaks are pulled over our eyes
And we descend into the depths
Into the halls where darkest secrets are kept

Their mordant devils taunt and laugh at me
For I have only ears to hear without the eyes to see

And with this test of wisdom all shall be revealed
The flames consume and make us one
The starless crypt, unsealed

A hand so cold
Reached and touched my face
In a moment darkest symphonies
Swelled and rose inside of me
Sweet liberating force, rend my soul in twain!

O' great lord, into me you see, into me, I see.
Our souls rejoice as wisdom flo-eth free and darkness spreads across the lands.
Hail to the true bearer of light.

Ravenous beasts, spell bound into submission, line the walls of the halls
Paralyzed by fear, in a ghostly stare,
Only pieces of the tortured souls remain.
Broken and abhorred
Longing for dark desires
A void left unfilled
Their gaze cold as the master wizard rises for the black mass

O' great lord, into me you see, into me, I see.
Our souls rejoice as wisdom flo-eth free and darkness spreads across the lands.
Hail to the true bearer of light.



And lo, eyes gazed from the one seated at the left hand
Of the grand master, a voice crawled from beneath his hood.
"Beware, those who hear and nod in accordance, yet trespass against this bond
Will suffer a curse far beyond his mortal grave."

The gates opened wide
The flame consumed
And time stood still...

SOLOS

Whilst the darkness grasps my soul
I chant to thee o' dark lord
I beseech me on this night
Induct me into your kingdom where the sun shall not rise
We usher in the timeless aeon the heavens regress and coil
Within these halls, all truths are known
The evils transform me from within, I am reborn

All cannot know truth, for blinding is the light
To the mind of the neophyte exposed to the flame
His lifeforce crippled, driven insane

And I cannot weep
For the fires of truth have destroyed all illusion
Within a dream of a dream, the conspiracy is clear to me.

For salvation, he cries
Indiscernable screams drenched in agony

Unto the mount
Laid before his feet
Smokeless flame arise
Enter The Adversary

His utterance flowing through each fibre of my being
With knowledge given of the omnipotent Word
My insatiable lust for blood surged
Track Name: The Dirge of the Surrogate Invictus
Lyrics By Matt Brown

"The Dirge of the Surrogate Invictus"

I am the ghost - the one besieged upon
The worst of lamentations
Mine - mine soul - fighting alone
Entrenched within this terrible war

This terrible war

Betrayed and left for dead
Our hero of vast wonders
Stabbed from the back and within
By the Harlot of Atrocities

"From where have I come?"
Our hero - he shutters unfurled
From the masses of regrets that build up through ages
Death - I can taste you on nigh

Glorious - He who absconds the true meaning
So glorious - to be the Surrogate Invictus
Glorious - He who absolves the true teachings
Victorious - you gore fucked, rotten whore

Keeping at once all the forms of lost teachings
With locks, bolted casings, and all
Utter blasphemitudes of a nefarious nature
So cold yet in darkness we walk

"The regrets of my time as all falls into line"
Keeping it within the Fold
"Of the five pointed star - pentagrammon beyond"
The ultimate magickal sign

Bury me as hopelessness consumes my mind
Keeping the story inside - of lecheries and betrayals in kind
"What have I become?"
A mannequin of purpose maligned
Bury me alive
Bury me alive

Glorious - He who absconds the true meaning
So glorious - to be the Surrogate Invictus
Glorious - He who absolves the true teachings
Victorious - you gore fucked, rotten whore

Keeping at once all the forms of lost teachings
With locks, bolted casings, and all
Utter blasphemitudes of a nefarious nature
So cold yet in darkness we walk

"The regrets of my time as all falls into line"
Keeping it within the Fold
"Of the five pointed star - pentagrammon beyond"
The ultimate magickal sign

And as darkness it crept - we wept in bitterness
For our fallen and shackled allies
Deceived from the beginning - our lives they had meaning
Now - they're shriveled and dead

"In a dream of futilities
With countless quests to embark upon
I will conquer all those who oppose me with penalties worse than death... as I crown myself as king."

An altered being of spiritual prowess
A slave to Lucifer and His commandments
Yet keeping my powers untold

"Deceived by the Prince of Maleficence and Woe
He bestowed upon me powers untold
But the cost accrued far outweighed my blessed life

With my powers in tow meant to destroy the world
I will resist this demon or djinn until told
To rest my weary head and simply die."

I stand before this precipice of the void - I stand and yell
Screaming forth all curses lent to me from the ascended ones of hell
Deception of my master's fate - I will surely send deathknells
I am biding my time - oh, victory - I shall obtain my Godhood now

The death of the King upon the Earth
Track Name: Summoning the Archons
Lyrics by Elijah Whitehead
Eternal hails to Mark Twain for his timeless contribution


Where dreams are made flesh
In the place where truth reigns free
The depths within thee illumed -
There is no heaven for your kind
Thogh the Narcil scribe otherwise
Despite the corrupt master's hand
It is He who reveals the master plan -
All of man must die


And were it not for the king
My deliverance
Unto thee would not be
Yet with the eyes to see
Our cause
Would serve an imperfect God
Any semblance of hope for the
Restoration of the Sali'un way
Has gone
My purpose shall be in service of
The Fallen One

Gather the legions before me - hear me speak!
We shall rend the veil between the worlds
And invoke the reign of a new high king

The love for my fellows has been swept away
By the cold winds of shadow
Darkness is here to stay

All hope is lost
For man - irredeemed
Into the abyss I scream
I become thee, immortal, undying



I reached up as The Chalice descended, it was shapely and beautiful but unlike any material that had been seen.
It was brilliant, of every tint, and was never still, but flowed to and fro in rich tides
Which flashed out explosions of every color. I drank, and felt a witching ecstasy as of Heaven stealing through me.
And in that moment, I was transformed into the very essence of the fallen.
I have become Im'maud'hi - The Destroyer.

I raised the Dagger of Names, chanting "Amnu Na'ak Beru - Na'ak Ba'ran," sacrificing the Apprentice
His blood flowed into the Chalice as the last covenant was made complete.


Obhi ne iluhet ano bra'ak fal lejora
Ano na'ak ti et
The Archons stepped forth

Shepet - to rule the skies, to soar above the wretched masses

Teom - to rule the land, to drive them to submission

Athios - to rule the seas, to swallow them whole

Bethiet - to rule their hearts and minds, in service to I

And with the artifacts in hand, the path for my return to the earth
is made known.

From each corner of the land, the legions shout

"Praise Be - Im'maud'hi - The Destroyer"


And it is we who will reign between worlds
Our goal in sight, and our actions unfurl

"Ik'thran'ithul is no longer of any use to me.
Step into the world and establish your reign as king.
And with thee enthroned, I am bound to the plane.
To reverse the lies of Pistis, to end all matter, shall be my claim"


"It is thee who shall be the final piece -
thy mortality dissipates
as you become the key to open the gate
and it was within thee all along
Weep not, rejoice, for you shall be remembered through the ages in song"
Track Name: Vanish into Damnation
Lyrics by Greg Vance, James Turk, Elijah Whitehead

In blinding flash of lightning
My home abandoned, seen
Legions in tow behind me
Burst forth through the seams
Discharged from the shadow
Manifest into the real

Bathed-in aethereal flame
Bodies spewed and slain
Piled in a bubbling mass
On the grounds of the Keep,
Ik'Thran'Ithul's forces laid waste

Resolute in my intentions
I rise to the forefront of the mass
First fists upon the gate
Our chants Dominate the airwaves

The gates, crushed and trampled beneath our feet
As we ascend the stairs into the fortress of the king
Our soldiers sing as their women, they weep
Whilst we cut down all the men sworn to his throne
Revered monuments of the hollow realm
Bathed in the flames of our furious siege
And our lord is pleased with our nefarious deeds
As we march to retrieve the Stone

Verily, I behold the Council of Six,
Prostrate before the Obelisk
Though their countenance has changed, surely driven insane
They awaken at the sound of my name

Lowered to the stage in angelic grace
Ik'Thran'Ithul appears, mask of fear upon his face
with my wife, the harlot, at his side
A revolting union I can not abide

Face to face with the Tyrant
I lunge in primal dominance
Impotent before my venomous hate
Reduced to broken form beneath my feet
Blackened blood and entrails cleanse my rage

As I draw the sacred dagger,
To claim his head as trophy
Rival gathered forces erupt
In frenzied slaughter

A zealous spirit of debauchery
Beset by malignant benevolence.
The stench of legislated morality:
An affront to freedom's purity.

Everlasting tortuous burning-
I hear their screams-
Fed to the fire.
Though obstacles appear at every turn,
My focus is serene, my greedy flesh burns!

A constant torturous yearning-
A desperate agony-
Poignant desire.
Though obstacles appear at every turn,
My focus is serene, my greedy flesh burns!


(SOLO)


I retreat from the throng toward the hidden chamber
Reaching forth for the Philosopher's Stone
It's light that had dimmed from frivolous use
now revived from the stain of Ik'Thran'Ithul's essence
Call forth the Archons
Prepare the Gate
Call to mind the flesh
Of Naak Baran's awakening
(SOLO)

The Stone illumined with every hue
Energy and matter coalesce
Split in half and rendered useless
Yea, Na'ak Ba'ran is manifest

Behold, the veil is ripped
The sour air erupts
In living flame
The apex of rapture;
The fulfillment of aeons.

The remaining living fall prostrate in terror
As they await his pronouncement;
The word of uncreation
The last moment to behold
There will be no testament

Angels and demons perish with our hearts
Serpent and Hawk devoured by Void
Emptiness, the sole victor
Soul dissolved in magnificent sorrow
Culmination of decades of disgust
Bitterness distilled to its noble essence
Burning eyes melt away

Behold the eve of extinction,
Punishing and unrelenting
All is silent as darkness consumes reality
The world is reset
