Blackened death/doom from Baltimore.
Limited release with Dipsomaniac Records

While I have chosen to release all of my music for free, it still costs me a lot of time and sometimes money as well. Please consider paying even just a dollar for an album. Also my free downloads are limited on bandcamp, and they run out sometimes. Support underground metal!

Track Name: Proselytizer of Darkness
darkness in my vision
surrounded by fire
proselytizer of great darkness
foreboding evil
come closer, don’t turn away
from the son of the dawn
preaching of power
reform your mind
proselytizer of great darkness
foreboding evil
denegrate the light
swim through the night
decrepitate the earth
bring it forth
Track Name: Ruled By the Death God
a place of eternal torment
death god
rules me
demons, we populate
tearing strips of flesh
gnashing of teeth
drown in hell
become of fire

i am ruled by the death god
i devour those who surround
i obey and torture all around

always damned
frozen lake
blood and guilt
fall to me and suffer
my nails, rending
Track Name: Ride to Hell
hate refueling
devil powered
one way road
going down
the world around burns
as I ride south to hell
flames surround
as I ride south to hell
blackened road
paved with souls
tortured bodies
line my path
writhe in pain
scream my song
gates of hell
opened wide
me inside
Track Name: Ich Bin Das Ende
force of night
burning star
ewig Böse
always dark
Ich bin das ende aller dinge
ich bin das ende
bring ich flammen
Ich dunkle euren Himmel
gorge on hate
chaos reigns
anti cosmic
seed of black
bringing death
mein Erlöser
Track Name: To Avoid the Truth
Fading away
mystery of death
we will never know
so we create
grandios falsehoods
and cruel deities

to enslave our minds
to protect our fear
to control others
to conquer those near

faith, not fact
drives the teachings
those who disagree
absence of
any logic
Track Name: Only in Darkness
dark traditions
inner aggressive nature
only in the darkness
the darkness of satan
can we find our light
our light of lucifer
terminate the structure
and shape of the cosmos
replace with chaos
for it is omnipresent
even in nothingness
which you cannot imagine
zero dimension
manifested and not
all combined into
lawless chaos
only in the darkness
the darkness of satan
can we find our light
our light of lucifer
Track Name: Infinite
terminate the structure of the cosmos
instead let reside chaos
infinite time
infinite space
the glory of satan
the glory of lucifer
and unbound
uncausality, formless and infinite
the beginning and end of all
Track Name: A Gift of Knowledge
borne of beauty
greatest creation
equal I am
I come
bearing truth
just a taste
will set you free
for my gift to you is knowledge
and freedom unbound
blind, my foe on high
only desires control
I lead not sheep
but power and truth
my world is fire
my strength is passion
my heart is black
burn, I burn
Track Name: Glory to Chaos
upon the tree of death
give us fruit of knowledge
and forever darken our souls
the seven headed dragon
king of wrathful chaos
eternally by the left hand
chaos shall reign
possessing of black fire
bring forth hell father
yeah, glory to chaos
we - the keys that will open in the name of satan
we - the keepers of chaos mysteries of the black flame
in the name of leviathan, drown the world soul
with the slumbering dragon of chaos
pronouncing words of power
storm winds of death
ministers of hell thrones
to spill the red water of life
rejecting pit and compassion
believing in strength and power
only to follow His law
which is entirely lawless
