Altar of Christ drowning in fire Screams of denouncement echo through the halls Bodies embrace their new lawless ways Drowning out commandments of purity and faith Daughters of god as virgins repressed Breaking free of vows of chastity as Hedonistic rituals of pleasure are at play Sadistic masochism in a violent display Followers of god break their holy dedication Indulging in desires of horrific fornication Shock and terror as the pure behold the acts Sick and twisted fantasies made reality Pain and torture; pleasurable sensations Desires are realized as punishments are bastardized Sodom; Gomorrah; Revive the ancient crimes Celebrate returns as the cross fucking burns Instruments of punishment re-purposed for fulfillment Tools that draw screams and blood perverted by their means Priests stare in shock at their followers corrupted Exhibitionism of their newfound reign of sin Vile and twisted, they rise from the altars reborn Baptized in blood, they've tasted flesh and they crave more Seeking fulfillment, they prey on the thirst of men Spreading corruption, the ways of the pious shall fall

Bring down the sky The laws and the creed Tampered since the beginning for a ruling minority Leaving us with only the illusion of Influence They tell us we matter They feed us the scraps in exchange for civility Breeding contempt for those who Dare to oppose From your gilded cages You've blinded yourselves to the suffering of the oppressed Ignore and ridicule the horded Calls of rebellion It's too late for peace When the cries of reform are easily silenced The only outcome is war The life of the world rests in the hands of one A man of gold; a petulant product of greed and power Culling the hateful masses from their fringed, shadowed corners Merely a product of confused and divided masses A singular power to fight against Such a blissful fantasy Easy to imagine the Great Antagonist as one Ignoring ambivalence of systematic chaos It's reckless and short-sighted; It's blind to what it tramples Just as unaware of its own actions as of ours All we can do is wait for its self defeating nature To devour itself hoping to be spared from the fallout And when it crumbles, weakened and exposed The survivors and the oppressed will stomp out the final fires Start again, fighting through a new age of darkness Desperately hoping not to breed the same deadly mistakes Let them eat the ground from under their feet Let them see themselves for what they really are Let it curb its hunger by devouring its own limbs Let it fall; Let it die; Let it crumble; Let it burn

The agonizing screams compose a beautiful melody My laughter echos through, joining in through harmony To this I'm dancing mad; Singing to nihilistic preachings A darker time begs for me to lead the way (Insane) I scream through endless skies An echo of the ancient ways as all order dies (New world) A world of ruin wakes Through ancient powers grant thine form; this deity of hate In final days of god In final days of law In final days of morality; of sanity We'll embrace the darkest age We'll welcome the shadowed days We'll celebrate death, the loss of mind As chaos reigns supreme As you all drink the poison I spread throughout your land I cackle at the losses; kingdoms crushed by my black hand I rape the innocence of this world as I introduce new world order Thine hatred bleeds into law It's all so right: This world I've given you Drenched in blackened contempt Light of judgement, burn this retched world Re-shapen lands; Chaotic erosion Why rebuild knowing destruction is inevitable? Why crave life knowing everything must die? Why indulge in humanism when war is primal urge? A universal whisper speaks the answer we fear to much to heed: Hope is lost Embrace the madness embrace oblivion Let insanity assume your being

Writhing in pain The shock of loss, consuming, feels so unreal I hold you, a still warm stiff shell, no longer with what was once you In life you served as the brightest point of light on a tapestry of black In death, the memories, they sting; reminders of what can never be again I wish... I need to go back and make this all right Too late... All gone... Nothing is left... Never coming back If I had known that the last time would be the last time Would that have made this a little more bearable? I could have stopped this. I could have seen the signs I wish to steel this world from the careless hands of god The shock subsides and numbness clouds my way I stand to walk again, but I'm blind by light of day What first made me stay strong now slowly drowns my mind I thought I'd shatter; instead I slowly crumble over time So fragile we all are; this world's now made of glass Always under the looming shadow of tragedy It tortures me now, more than ever before: All we loved and shared is all there'll ever be

about

This EP is the culmination of 4-6 years of writing songs, scrapping ideas, exploring other projects, and finding the right people to work with. I wanted something that would really test the limits of my song writing and playing abilities as well as allow me to explore some ideas that wouldn't fly in my other bands.

Osculum Infame- Mostly written circa 2016. It's one of the very few songs I wrote the lyrics to before I wrote anything else. Writing the rest of the song around that took very little time, everything save for the solo and drum patterns were done in about 2 or 3 days.

Great Antagonist- Written in early 2017 after the elections. I wanted something much slower paced and more lingering. The song took very little time to write and record since they were just two or three very easy riffs.

World of Ruin- I wrote this song back in 2012 for my first band, Blood Magistrate. It's been one of my favorite songs that I've written ever since, and I always wanted to bring it back for another project.

Vega- This song was written in 2014 in about 2 or 3 weeks. It was one of the first songs I wrote specifically for Misotheist. The lyrics weren't written until early-mid 2017 when my cat had died and one of my friends had taken her own life.
