ARES KINGDOM - In Darkness at Last


Obal


1. RADIANT

Instrumental



2. STORMBRINGER HYADES (RAIN DOWN DARKNESS)

The flashing storm front sinks
As twin horns split the blackened sky
Over the eastern horizon
Comes red Aldebaran’s fiery rise
Stormbringer

A gathering of six
A nightscape face built upon myth
Stormbringers all
Across the seasons in glimmer and mist
Islands of light
Animate the dark between the stars
Deepscapes drift
The stars as they are and not as we wish

Caelum portentum
Ain portentum
Hyades portentum
Twin horns split the sky

Ain portentum
Oculus Boreus, the cold winter’s eye
Hyades portentum
Twin horns split the blackened sky



3. UNDER ALGOL

A skyborne devil - Al Satan
Rises in the late heat - de anno
Bringing cold down upon the Earth
An unstable eye that turns to glare

Harbinger
Boreas
Under Algol

Amid flashing showers of dust
The radiant and storm bursts forth
A dread light of serpentine vision
To watch and gloat in the time of dying

Sign of woe
Al Satan
Under Algol

The tears of Saint Laurence flash through the night
The dust of the heavens disturbed
Al Satan strikes fear in human hearts
Eclipse in darkness - night after night

Demon star
The specter's head
Under Algol



4. THE DRAGONS OF ARA

Nebulous dragons in deepest darkness
Amorphic heads glow red like stellar blood
Tendril necks contort in fiery opposition
Filament limbs - frozen in time
Spectral blue haze of irradiated dust
Shadows black, voids engulf primordial death
Obscurant clouds pierced by starlight flood
Elemental struggle, plasma mists as blood

Sirian spectrum vapors burn
Breaths of burning solar winds
Scorching Ara’s edifice to black
Battle of eons, both destined for death

Dragons of Ara

Light divided
The dragons tear themselves apart
Burning nuclear fury illuminates the void
The gods crowd round as flies enthralled
A captive swarm cocooned in astral dust
Burning clouds evaporate, sublimate remains
Myriad suns' coronal winds blast into void
Atop the altar, the haze of stellar war glows
Sifting the remains for new generations to arise

The dragons' spectral war subsides
Halo of gods have loosed their grip
Clouds of dust adrift
In silence, for all time...



5. AEQUINOCTIUM

Approach the center of dawn
Deep in the layers of light
Swimming among ancient beasts
Abandoned by time
Night equal to day
And day equal to night
Equinox sun the great divider burns the twilight’s void

Aequinoctium
Cosmic dust swept up into a storm
Stabs the twilight to release…
To release or kill the light

Aequinoctium

When men’s folly outnumbers
Outnumbers even the stars
In the circle of the signs (via Solis)
The vast expanse of the skies
Given to delusions of man
The unrepentant fools
Dethroned conceits survive
Unseen by the weak minds

Aequinoctium
Cosmic dust swept up into a storm
Stabs the twilight to release…
To release or kill the light

I bear the scales when hang in equipoise
The night and day



6. BASILISK FLAME

Born with Sirius ascendant
In effigy or legend be
A hatchling now free from the putrid leathery womb
Crowned in gold
King of the serpents - and all but man
Raises its head to greet the blazing Sirian dawn

With fatal glance, the regulus with fetid breath
Serpentine slit eyes sear through the retreating dark night
An earthly cherubim that kills through unholy sight
And in death…
An ancient alchemical, imperial glow

From the serpent’s root
Comes forth a beast
Venomous cockatrice
The Basilisk Flame



7. RAPACIOUS

I) Serpents of Laocoon
Agony in icon without redemption
Punishment for wrong and right
Struck by fangs as willed by the gods
Beauty in desperation, terror, and death

Serpents enfold the children of Laocoon
Serpentine, envenomed, constriction
Severe faces frozen in death
Severe faces frozen in time

The gods reject the prayers of the priest
Tame the rapacious prophets before all die

II) Nyx Velificans
Holy Nyx, born of chaos
At whose feet all sins are laid
Dissolving in a dreamless sleep
Eternal mother of death

Yes, the gods - the dreams of men
Are later than this world
The ground littered with carven idols
Regolith shroud entombs in time

An arrogant king
A tyrant he has now become
Falls into the hands of death
The final conqueror

III) Resacralize
When darkness fails to bring forth the stars, resacralize ancient hymns
Hoary with the dust of ages
Magnificent desolation - stark and barren

What ends when symbols shatter?
Traditions! Traditions cursed to exile
Ancients ways trod underfoot
And the eagle
Killed by an arrow
Vaned...
...by its own feathers vaned!

IV) In a Time of Plauge
Swords may not fight with fate
Strength stoops unto the grave
The plague full swift goes by
“Come, come!” the bells do cry
Tasteth death’s bitterness
Hell’s executioner, mount we unto the sky

“Come, come, come!” the bells do cry
I am sick, I must die
“Come, come, come!” the bells do cry
I am sick, I must die



8. PRIESTS OF PALLAS

Instrumental



9. A WOLF ON THE FOLD

Like a wolf on the fold descends the disease
Breathe in the heaving tides of corrupted seas
Gleaming veiled prophets plead in sickly tone
Rocks strewn in bone break waves of parting groans

For the Angel of Death spread his wings on the blast
And breathed in the face of the foe as he passed
And the eyes of the sleepers waxed deadly and chill
And their hearts but once heaved, and forever - forever grew still

Like a wolf on the fold
A wolf on the fold
Wolf on the fold

And there lay the tending angels lay broken and pale
Sweat from their brows drips in bloody trails
And these angels of mercy now weep in despair
Powerless to fight a war in the rising infectious air
The time of rebirth has crushed the hopes of all men
Death rides unhindered through the breath of his sin

For the Angel of Death spread his wings on the blast
And breathed in the face of the foe as he passed
And the eyes of the sleepers waxed deadly and chill
And their hearts but once heaved, and forever - forever grew still

And there lay the rider distorted and pale
With the dew on his brow, and the rust on his mail
And the tents were all silent, the banners alone
The lances unlifted, the trumpet unblown


For the Angel of Death spread his wings on the blast
And breathed in the face of the foe as he passed
And the eyes of the sleepers waxed deadly and chill
And their hearts but once heaved, and forever - forever grew still

Like a wolf on the fold
A wolf on the fold
Wolf on the fold



10. SOLOMONIC SPIRALS
