Track Name: Pathway To The Ancient Forest
The knowledge of the ancients, the souls of the departed
For aeons we have searched, through the cold and dismal sorrow
Their voices of wisdom guide our path through the necropolis


"To be as old as time, throughout the ages
Throughout the ages, for death immune"


We arrive at the sacred alter ascending the crumbling stone steps
A hidden artefact lies beyond, sleeping within the mighty walls
Clouded in mist and pale light, the secrets of eternity behold
The key to the entrance of the damned, a pathway to the ancient forest

The absence of the sun, the trees surrounding the sky
The dark archways appearing within the hallowed horizon
As time is standing and memories are fading
The forest reveals itself in a splender of ancient glory

"To be as old as time, throughout the ages
Throughout the ages, for death is immune"

Standing before the great vast forest
A celestial voice speaks in anci ent tongues
"Immortality is what you seek, you'll be
Forever damned to this lifeless forest"
The archways collapse, the pillars fall
The entrance vanishes into the void of chaos
No memories of previous lives
Servants to the archaic gods

The ancient forest of lifeless eternity
Wandering amidst the home of the dead
Track Name: When Moonlight Evokes The Frozen Nights
The winds rage as a full moon rises
Above the mourning of a pale dark sky
The clouds depart from the sorrowful night
Stars are reborn as the being's of light
The rain falls upon this distant land
But none remain to embrace it's being
Echo’s from a distant realm
A prophecy of this world’s demise

Moonlight evokes the frozen night
A requiem for a past now lost
Deliver ours souls to the dark
Wash away the chaos of this world

The light of the moon shines from a distant past
The calls of the wind, the whispers in the night
A Pale glow covers the shadows of life
A cold empty land, basking beneath the clouded dark

"Everything vanishes but the light of the moon
The soul is left to wander eternally with no rest
The frozen night lay shrouded in an endless blackness
The kingdom of life, now a shadow, forever forgotten"


Moonlight evokes the frozen night
A requiem for a past now lost
Deliver ours souls to the dark
Wash away the chaos of this world
Track Name: Defenders Of The Astral Kingdom (Part II)
Times scar leaves it mark upon this mortal body
Forsaken I've wandered, blinded by the ethereal lights
Becoming a withering illusion lost within the castle walls
My search for the essence of being, immortal, undying

I am the god of this realm, become a servant to your unseen master
I will bless upon you the celestial gift of eternal being
Consume your soul with the majestic darkness
Sacrifice your body, your spirit is binded with I"

Screams of anguish as my body’s consumed in the void
Granted with the dark unholy power
The shadows rise above the astral kingdom
Eclipsing the lands to be forlorn in darkness

Storms of destruction, the master calls my name
The mournful cries of dying souls
The kingdoms call over an empty wasteland

A vision in the eclipsing moon
I gaze upon the sky with lifeless eyes
Wolves cry over the freezing night
As darkness spreads for no light to exist
Extinguished hope as all is fading
Cursed to live this grim eternal life
Shackled to the destroyer of light and time
No dreams breed in empty lives

The astral kingdom descends to the seas below
The once mighty palace harvesting the great god
I remain immortal, suffering the ages now forgotten
Dark is the path to eternity
Track Name: The Summoning Of Arcane Magic
Chanting the dark spells of chaos and damnation
I read from the obscure scrolls long forgotten by man
An arcane magic, cryptic and haunting
Summoning the all mighty destroyer of realms

"Darkness engulf this world
Show us the kingdom of shade
Destroy the vale of time
Bring the new age of cataclysm"

Shrouded in the nightfall, dawnless are these days
The sea's remaining frozen, suspended in the twilight
Stars descend from the sky, the moon is now forsaken
Lord of the infernal, master of the dark arts

As I stand alone, in the ruins of the catacomb's
The forests stand in silence, before they perish and die
The voices of the dying masses, light of heavens fade away
In the faint horizon, dark kingdoms begin to rise

And now standing before me, is the end of mortal virtue
I command the powers of the new world, the new era of bedlam
Disappear into nights embrace, let the centuries pass on by
I'll return to rule this dimension, with the powers of arcane magic
Track Name: The Palace Of The Prophets
Riding through darkest, coldest nights
Guided by the light of stars
My horse trembling with fear
My body so cold and withering
With the knowledge of primordial beginnings
An endless cycle of death and downfall
To find the palace of the prophets
And gain the power of timeless foresight

The vast mountain range overlooking the towers
The hands of time are beginning to turn
I feel the blood of life from ages past
Chaos is reborn

"The bringers of new life, destroyers of the cosmos
Shatter the spheres to this worlds ending reliance
Come forth the new age, the dawn of calamity
A sacrifice of souls, the power to end all"

The secrets of the black arts lay within my being
My heart of destruction, the powers to embrace at will
I call forth the creatures, long forgotten by the times
A spell of ancient darkness spreads itself throughout the lands
The last of us gather in the confines of the palace
As the endless suffering screams through the winter winds
The wisdom of the departed souls flowing within my veins
The lands once filled with life fall into the unseen abyss

"The bringers of new life, destroyers of the cosmos
Shatter the spheres to this worlds ending reliance"
Come forth the new age, the dawn of calamity
A sacrifice of souls, the power to end all"

And everything Vanishes into nights dark vale
The silver moonlight shines over distant hollows
The pillars of creation descend to ashen ruin
The light of the cosmos lay before my grasp
The cosmic powers to command the darkness
Nocturnally reborn to consume life
