Empire 05:23
Cold are the watcher's eyes Blank without compassion Severe is the storm that's sown Sweeping away what's weak Black lights flicker in the dark We are the ones forsaken The impact of the brutal assault Resonates throughout all our lands Man-made things with no shape nor shadow Assail their own womb to annihilate Let us mourn for never morrow should dawn upon us Bless us for the one has come Pride and act of creation To undo the impure Perfect the tainted's doom Man-made things with no shape nor shadow Assail their own womb to annihilate Let us mourn for never morrow should dawn upon us We sacrifice freedom for no reason Foretell our ruin and fade in lies We are not prepared for the final season Behold the blackness when all that's living dies Burn the weak biomass Turn the whole world into stone Make it ours a barren waste An empire without a throne Empire You stare into the abyss of death The New Empire Man-made things with no shape nor shadow Assail their own womb to annihilate Let us mourn for never morrow should dawn upon us a desolate fate We sacrifice freedom for no reason Foretell our ruin and fade in lies We are not prepared for the final season Behold the blackness when all that's living dies

The Worm 02:38
Lines of men are marching in uniforms just gray Faces are identical, we represent the One State Calculating everything Meals, sex and sleep No names, just unique numbers Of the very same breed Skins in perfect unison All our senses lie prone We are the servants of nothingness The essence of humanity makes mathematics fail Propagating hollowness as ultimate salvation Barricades to happiness Tear the wall down Absolute equation for the Benefactors nation Skins in perfect unison All our senses lie prone We are the servants of nothingness Feet resounding on stone The hourglass ever turned We are born and buried, we're the army undead Skins in perfect unison All our senses lie prone We are the servants of nothingness Feet resounding on stone The final hour has arrived The Great Benefactors will be done Kill the worm We kill the worm

Never heal, never cure or deliver Break their rules, claim your rights by complete dissent Dressed in red, marching on with clean-shaven heads Boycott the Junta, their dirty dastardly decadence Rise and revolt Bleeding sins spill their blood on their medals Widened eyes witness violence the media cannot show Free our minds but the hands they are shackled tight Rise and revolt soon the world will see Rise and revolt Tens of thousands follow our silent call to rise against Long years have passed, I know But the oppressors are now due to surrender This despotic domination will come to an end To disconnect the worlds net won't make them repent Teachings of the awakened one, pure unearthly desires Hope was still left - so we conspired Tens of thousands follow our constant call to rise against Long years have passed, I know But the oppressors are now due They are blind and mentally defiled All fears will pass away As the oppressors are now due To surrender

Take all the colors, melt them to gray And my soul to black Touch my old wounds fresh, wet and bleeding Standing back to back Turning page by page Can't find the end Just that tomorrow's gone Kneeling at the edge Drinking your sorrows I fear a new night's dawn Consumed by the self I failed to see the gray shades' embrace Fend off the horror, the shaping shadow Save my captive soul Its rule is drawing nearer The fragile's cure is freedom's foe Blood Runs Black Gorge the world's chaos Bath in disorder A maelstrom of doom Grief is a weapon Dreams are ascending Colorless in bloom Drawing sword by sword Dull are your eyes Staring leeched and poured Judgement by the bloodless This is the end Screaming for the god-sent Consumed by the self I failed to see our flame was erased Look into the mirror, a shattered puzzle That breaks the healing light of day The broken spirits' army Will unknowingly lead the way Alert the guardian Tempt your fate Challenge him at the spirit gate Bow and suffer, stand and call Into Lethe's stream you'll fall Blood runs black My blood runs black
5.
I am the prophet praising the two I foresee your sorrows and all your pain Close are my looks my analysis I examine visions and will maintain I'm the master of illusion A devil in disguise As the master of your bloodline I control and plan your life You're breeding and feeding We're just deceiving your flesh and blood They innocently believe the lies We justify by blindly holding on To principles of the enlightened past And the rusty great old chain where we don't belong I am your agent I promise you youth I fulfil the dreams you have been denied Kneel to my rule my imperative And the power of the digital eye Why do we trust in man despite his words of deceit A false front with an innocent grin but still we are believing It's not a necessity to arrange life My revolution has not yet begun I'm floating with current but Crave not to be my father's son Believe the lies We justify by blindly holding on To principles of the enlightened past And the great chain full of rust where we don't belong

Impurity 04:50
Thick smoke in our green lungs, toxic our misdeeds We are starving for salvation but bite the hand that feeds Ancient shapes are changing because of what we've done Put all disputes aside, our perdition has begun The tree of life is sere The divine fruitful garden dead The new world's old king is no more We all praise the scepter's heir of war See the populace is wearing the crown It is made of black fluid and thickly dripping down Another step to our final rule is near Disrespect and irreverence we fear Traitors to deliverance disrespect the cure Their souls will burn in heaven as hell lies obscure The numbers ever growing, to save the sinless seed To dry our weeping wounds and still the tears we bleed The tree of life is sere The divine fruitful garden dead The new world's old king is no more We all praise the scepter's heir of war See the populace is wearing the crown It is made of black fluid and thickly dripping down We propagate destruction And violate the contract of creation and man The flood is coming The levees are breached Come and cleanse our impurity
7.
The South is withered and poor While the North is bankrupt and cold Your false god seduced the world His poison cripples the freedom of thought Raise your hands, drive in thorn by thorn Into the pure flesh of this rotting place, war-torn The East is raging with fire And the West will be set ablaze Bills burn, green turns to sand The system's failing, a new age at hand Clench your fists, drive in thorn by thorn Into the pure flesh of this rotting place, war-torn Profiled Classified Surveyed Analyzed Clench your fists, drive in thorn by thorn Into the pure flesh of this rotting place, war-torn Take your knife, cut the noose around our neck Get down and smash the spores of greed for they are red
8.
We are Sin 03:11
Our new eyes work with blind perfection Behind the veil that gives protection We accuse and blame the giving Detest the free will of the living Do you follow old trails and wonder All the others are gone The dark, the fear, a distant beacons fire The knives, they are drawn Eat the worms and testify Truth made of a single lie Insects hide beneath the snakes Devouring as new life awakes Do you sail on wild troubled waters Where the others have gone The void, the fear, a distant beacons fire The knives, they are drawn Father, we are sin For going where no one has been Father, we are sin For going where no one has been Mother, put on the crown We decide ourselves what we own Father, we are sin Our redemption lies within Father, we are sin We stab and kill with a grin
9.
I grab your hand and make you have a close look What do you see inside this black box book Carefully scribbled thoughts of a perfect reign All their ideals are pre-planted in our brains I got swollen eyes and red crusty ties Lips and mouth cracked open Longing for true freedom to rise For the machinery's running And my body it demands But that self-imposed religion won't lead us to the Promised Land To believe or to betray This spiritual consistency is just a frame For these fool's incarnation of decay And mankind's believe in others blame Now tell me again What's inside this book of rule and salvation It's their vision of tomorrows time Versatile bodies with constructed mind design For the machinery's running My very soul it demands But that self-imposed religion will fall by its own makers hands To believe or to betray This spiritual consistency is just a frame For these fool's incarnation of decay And mankind's believe in others blame It's a perfect reign

The Stench 04:52
All the earth was waste and darkness Then came the light of day A firmament created by a Spirits will you say Then the waters gathered so dry land appeared There is no proof but it's a paradox to destroy This is for the prostitutes of inevitevolution The slow swiftness of your decay as retribution Time is his invention, life in the air and sea Let them multiply and feed the beasts of the earth At last man was formed to dominate the world But none could see to what the seventh day gives birth This is for the prostitutes of inevitevolution The slow swiftness of your decay as retribution Where's your god? Where is your god? Passive obedience to the great shapeless one Denying decisions to keep all you have All that's named holy now weeps in the dark Death is our future and we all wear the mark This is for the prostitutes of inevitevolution The slow swiftness of your decay as retribution This is for the prostitutes of inevitevolution I already smell the foul stench of purification Where is your god? Where the fuck is your god?

Press reactions:
"Excellently played, smartly arranged and refreshing." (Jakob Kranz - Metal Hammer Germany)

"One of the most promising German newcomers." (Legacy Magazine Germany)

"This album does not let up for a second. From start to finish it is a relentless, politically furious, technical, melodic, Thrash assault." (metal-temple.com)

"The bombastic thrash sound is raw, angry, and distorted – and marks an impressive debut." (metalglory.de)

"A varied, discreetly technical piece of thrash metal with an ideal sound. The guitars shine with complex riffs, ingeniously set overtones and fantastic solos. There are tons of details to discover in each song." (stormbringer.at)

"It sounds great." (Randy Black - Primal Fear, Duskmachine, Ex-Annihilator)

"Great power/thrash metal. I'm impressed." (Anton Reisenegger - Criminal, Lock Up, Pentagram)
