Predator Reign
Emanate imperator
Of hatred now conceived
Superior clad with iron fist
Bring forth your rule of impenetrable steel

To starving beasts
Traitors shall be fed
Spare them not
Backwords their arms must bend

Within the walls all tremble
Who refused to swore the oath
Of allegiance to the ominous crest
Eternal reign
Perpetual war

Dominator
Savage legions come
Conqueror
Mount the imposters throne

Through havoc - through ashes
Upwards the womb of Death
From the final spark within their eyes
Light the torches and commence

In joy and victory
Ablaze their soil defiled be set
In triumph now consume the offal stench

Predator Reign

Rejoice in bestial ecstacy
The slaughter has begun
The unborn creed of enemies
Now stain the altar with their blood

Fornicate within their sacred shrines
Disintegrate - now severed heads on spikes rise high

Raid the vaults and burn the scrolls
Containing hymns of praise
In honor of aggressors
Whose fate forever be unsung

Through havoc - through ashes
Upwards the womb of Death
From the final spark within their eyes
Light the torches and commence

In joy and victory
Ablaze their soil defiled be set
In triumph now consume the offal stench

Predator Reign

Arise predator
As the flames of cremation punctures the sky

Hail imperator
The mountains they thrust from the thundering cry

Through havoc - through ashes

Upwards the womb of Death
From the final spark within their eyes
Light the torches and commence

In joy and victory
Ablaze their soil defiled be set

Predator Reign


Crown of Fire Full Moon at dawn
An infant is born
Horror from below has taken form

Unnatural birth
A blessing and a curse
Antichrist shall inherit the Earth

Death spells
Ascend from Hell
A roaring sound in darkness dwell

Born of the fire
Death is here
Pierce their souls with venom spear

Forever death
Gloom and Doom
The Earth becomes a poisoned womb

Lungs from Hell
Spewing out fire
Let the world burn higher

Full Moon at dawn
An infant is born
Horror from below has taken form

Born of the fire
death is in the air
The horror of the night will not disappear

Come forth with havoc
Come forth with wrath
Rise - Son of fire
King of the world

Come forth with havoc
Come forth with wrath
Rise - Son of fire
King of the world


Hellstorm Spears towards the sky
Impale the weak with rusty steel
Violence spreads across the land
The sky gets coated black by angels blood

Defenceless they are crying
Its pure Death and fear
Vengeance from hell ascend to destroy

Behold
The world succumbed by Deaths embrace
Darkness spreads across the land
Damnation to the abominable race

Moribund world
Oh Death - Gather your harvest

Damnation plagues the Earth
The reapers scythe will churn

Damnation plagues the Earth
The reapers scythe will churn

A storm is coming
Antichrist command
Superior mighty winds roar
The eternal plague of man

A storm is coming
Antichrist command
Superior mighty winds roar
The eternal plague of man

Spears towards the sky
Impale the weak with rusty steel
Darkness spreads across the land
Damnation to the abominable race

Moribund world
Oh Death - Gather your harvest

Damnation plagues the Earth
The reapers scythe will churn


Annihilation Banner Sharpened pikes - battering gales
Judgement falls as a sweeping flail
Torment calls
As the heavens quake

Poisonous winds are churning through
Evoking storms of blasphemic doom
The total woeful subduement
In seas of Chaos spawned

The grasp of annihilation scars
Bleeding doom blackened stars
The grasp of annihilation scars
Bleeding doom blackened stars

Void Dawn
The advent of dissolvement come
Chaos rend
By the old gods spire
Void dawn
Damnations wings descend upon this land
Chaos rend
Crush the crumbling tower
Infernal hordes
Ram the gates
Through angels flesh
The spears impale

The grasp of annihilation scars
Bleeding doom blackened stars
The grasp of annihilation scars
Bleeding doom blackened stars

Void Dawn
The advent of dissolvement come
Chaos rend
By the old gods spire
Void dawn
Damnations wings descend upon this land
Chaos rend
Annihilation banner

Void Dawn
The advent of dissolvement come
Chaos rend
By the old gods spire
Void dawn
Damnations wings descend upon this land
Chaos rend
Annihilation banner

Void Dawn
The advent of dissolvement come
Chaos rend
By the old gods spire
Void dawn
Damnations wings descend upon this land
Chaos rend
Annihilation banner









Thousand Spears Impale Fiend of a thousand years forgotten
Hidden at the bottomless pits of Death
Monolith of shattered spirits
In the depths far below the abyss

Tentacles from the serpents mouth
Stretching among empty tombs
Awaiting the lost and impious
To incarcerate their souls into stone

Heralds of the black cast
Scar through the ancient grace
The sharpened spear impales

Heralds of the black cast
The sharpened spear impales
Feast from the open wounds

At the nucleus of the endless abyss
Behold the temple of human flesh
Bow to the banner of the monolith
Behold the rats of the serpent

Endless halls of a thousand deaths
You shall see the sea of darkness
You shall behold the blasphemy
In the voids forgotten

Impending minds
Crooked spines
Impervious fiend
Of Death and Light

Fiend of a thousand years forgotten
Hidden at the bottomless pits of Death
Monolith of shattered spirits
In the depths far below the abyss

Tentacles from the serpents mouth
Stretching among empty tombs
Awaiting the lost and impious
To incarcerate their souls into stone

Heralds of the black cast
Scar through the ancient grace
The sharpened spear impales
Heralds of the black cast
The sharpened spear impales
Feast from the open wounds


The Savage Covenant Somber dawn reign
From the abyssal depths ascend
As a torch of wounded light
A flame bright
As the creeping blight

The trenches devours
Hammering Chaos falls
Smoke of havoc now arise
A mist as white
As the deads eyes

Tremble before the dawn
With bloodlust commence
The infernal jaws we rabidly fed
Eternal hunger will not quench

The voices of torment call
Vicious tempests buries all
Into the desolate fields
As the twilight restrains
Their ripped breaths


Unveil - Reveal
Unveil - Reveal

Unveil the hungry necks
Reveal the gleaming blades
Extermination command

The savage covenant

March through haze
Hear the thunder
Vulturous death
Battering fires
Towards the horizon
The sky lays torn
Imploding pandemonium
Through the dissonance of shattered horns

Unveil - Reveal - Unveil

Unveil the hungry necks
Reveal the gleaming blades
Extermination command

The savage covenant


Devil Spawn Dead is the air it breathes
In the heights of the formless
Beyond and above it seeks
The radiant shine of a god
The edge of the sky it breaches
Bleed the heavenly waters
The fading fire it eats
From the wounds

Pale are its teeth that reap
On the planes of the shapeless
On the dying flame it feeds
In restless hunger
On endless wastes it slithers
Tongue of deforming Chaos
In the black vault it sweeps
Starless
Starless

Obscure - The spawn of the Father
Devour the flesh of the Sun

Breach the arches
Deaths destroying wounds
Darkness conquers
In celestial blood

Obscure - The spawn of the Father
Devour the flesh of the Sun

Breach the arches
Deaths destroying wounds
Darkness conquers
In celestial blood


Heretical Repugnance Through vast perverted grounds we march
The rapture knows our name
As darkness stains the blood drenched soil
Infertile now in hellish reign
Usurpers charge through conquered turf
In utmost tyranny
Dancing madly to the pipes
Pounding drums with deadly beat

Our seals obscure the righteous light
Our crest smothers the dawn
Merciless without remorse
Heretics of the enthroned
Malicious force of disbelievers
The force of subjugation storms
As famine spreads none shall be born
The word carved into flesh now glows

Dissidents of fallacious law
Crush the woeful lecturer
In feral domains
Relentlessly scorned

With thousand voices strong it roars
Now all shall heed the call
Forced into the pits of torment
Ravaged mocked and overthrown
Usurpers charge through conquered turf
In utmost tyranny
Dancing madly to the pipes
Pounding drums with deadly beat

Treacherous deceitful horde
To immortal idols forever sworn
Under schyte now switch the arching necks
Heretical repugnance

Treacherous deceitful horde
To immortal idols forever sworn
Under schyte now switch the arching necks
Heretical repugnance


Triumphant Extinction Enlighten us
Come forth with rage and hellish flames
Wickedness
With iron claws it pervades whats in its way
Exterminate

Superior forces are gathered
No need to defend themselves
Against the bestial attack
Crushed by the waves of the thundering blast
Doomsday sign
Terrible sound of trumpets from the sky

Enlighten us
Ancient sovereign god of the dead
Malevolence
Heaven ans Earth in ashes


Triumphant Extinction

Enthrone
To the violent clangor of the fallen crown
Enthrone in bestial frenzy

Triumphant Extinction


Clangor of Subjugation Come by fire come with disease
The feral hordes in shadows reap
Assault in thunder charge to revenge
The feeble rats perish in flames

March to plunder
Storm the gates
Crack the blessed heads

Hail the clangor of swords
Ravage the golden halls

To spill the blood
Of the immortals

Supremacy - call to arms
The legions march towards the arch
Terminate as darkness commands
In white eyed frenzy now advance

Mock the goddess
Imprecate the gods
Blasphemy
In terror maraud

Hail the clangor of swords
Ravage the golden halls

To spill the blood
Of the immortals

Come by fire
come with disease
The feral hordes
in shadows reap

Hail the clangor of swords
Ravage the golden halls

To spill the blood
Of the immortals
