TEMPTAMENTUM - Disciples Of The Ashen Sun

Disciples Of The Ashen Sun

Bleak, forlorn, our sulphur-blazing refuge,
no haven of wisdom was gained, no light
shone upon our search for celestial knowledge
upon the quest for a celestial throne.

Suffering we are, tristful and torn,
unspoken, the grand guilt of heaven and
the guilt that remains, a scar on the ones
who tasted the fruit ere to the mortal hand.

But as long as the earthly tides will turn,
as long as lunar light is spread on earth
and the solar one is given birth
our strength remains, our anger dwells.

For havoc we found, and humiliation once,
let no more night pass on this burned ground,
rebellion, unleashed and unbound,
shall be what we are hungering for.

And He shalt find his nemesis 
beneath Lethes blackened stream.

Night Her Course Began

...So spoke the spirit, the guiding one

"Night" he said "her course began.
Watch the stars on their mighty way,
Feel her cold on thy trembling cheeks,
the neversun and evergrey...

So silent sunlight drowned the sea,
So peaceful rose the mighty star,
Laid is slumber over his creation,
Arise, my shadows, near and far!"

"Light" he said "let its course begin.
Gathered art thou to follow my path,
Enrich my words with flaming swords,
Enflame thy souls with brightest wrath".

A silence fell, the echo faded,
From the rocks that rose up high.
Few eyes were closed, few whispered words
Then the loudest uproar filled the sky.

So silent sunlight drank the oceans,
So silent fell the mighty star
Night her course began
And with her rose a final war.

The Purgatory Winter

Their blind eyes staring
Into a deathlike emptiness
so endless, so silent.
Tempter eternal,
May thy light become my strength
To harvest the fruits 
Among the blinded.

Unleash the storm
Enslaver of all feeble souls
Hunter of the misty plains
Enthrone thy light
Upon the ashes of a withered soil
They shall see...
Our immortality!

Cleanse the world
With the fires of a raging storm
For all times shatter
This masquerade obscene.
Thy mourning grace
Thy pale grandeur
Grant us the wisdom of thousand ages.

Awaken oh winter,
On storms of freezing chill
To carry our realm
On wings of retaliation.
Bringer of light,
Thy flaming weapon we shall be
To lead this stench of pestilence
To luciferian damnation.

Our final sacrifice
A bright unearthly pyre.
Their kingdoms of demise
Purity by fire!

Catharsis - The Gathering Of Spirits

Beyond the burning firmament
Where skies unite and eternities fade
Arising, the ardour of Helios
Enlightens the chaos ere unseen

And at the roaring sea I stand
Upon the cold and bleak cliffs of time
I watch the scenery unvisible for mortal eyes
Behold, the beauty within these ruins!

I yearn for the enthralling stars, 
But my wings still are broken
My soul is poisoned by this deadly soil
And my flesh is consumed by slow decay

But with heart ablazed and will unbroken
I conquered the searing rocks (once again)
And... upon the silent waters
The awakening storm is unleashed


Cherub, thy flaming sword will be
Our strongest weapon raised upon thee
In ragious rebellion we'll seek
For the conquest of Eden, thou will hear us speak

Catharsis - the gathering of spirits
Towards the light...
The Sun Is Ours!

Scarlet Gleaming Darkness

The unseen paths surround me once again
Driven by obscurest visions, the falling rain,
That guides me through my ways at night
Uncovers my soul, the pale flickering light.

Darkness - I fall into your arms,
Arise, sweet night, to never leave.
Silence - still blazing in my soul,
Thy solitude is my relief.

Rising - the fallen one,
To the firmament of light's demise
Burning - the tears are dried,
Within scarlet gleaming eyes.

A wanderer I am, in deserts arcane
An unsung poem, a melody unheard
A roaming soul, a flowing stream
In a vault of memories trembling, scared.

So let my spirits awake, feed my hunger inside,
Unleash deepest forces, my unsung anthems of night,
Bring forth the strength,
I once fell but i'm rising from pain,
The darkness that gleams in my eyes
Will be burning again.
...I see the coming dawn, it's mine,
I see the velvet flickering shine
That slowly creeps at the end of the view
And swallows the stars that nightly grew.
From scarlet darkness to arise
Again the will that still defies.
