Scholar ov the unlight, Great volcano ov excrement, Rippling eager to erupt, Reconstellate the firmament. This is just a preview! Bring down the rain Drain waters ov Styx Faustian luminary Redeem Blaspheme Like a day without the dawn Like a ray void ov the sun Like a storm that brings no calm I'm most complete and so undone Agathos Daimon Ov plague and fever Thy name is Nowhere Thy name is Never Liberate me Ignite the seeds Bind not to guilt Ignis Gehennalis O Father O Satan O Sun Let the children come to Thee Behold the Morning Star Akephalos Shine thru me Come forth in war Come forth in peace O Lion-Serpent Sun, The Beast that whirlest forth, a thunder- bolt, begetter of Life! Cunning as shroud ov Turin On the autopsy ov god Creatio ex nihilo Credo undone Wretched is the fruit ov thy womb, Babylon! I descended from the Mount Sinai Unleashed the splendour upon a scoundrel mob To shelter where no messianic light Drove one single ray into the pulp ov life O sweet Salome I beckon thee Bring forth thy heinous offering Without your love So incomplete Corrupt me with your dignity I decompose in the rapture ov hells Dissolve divide disintegrate I am yours In euphoria below At faintest whim they would impale the sun And thus the sheep in me became the wolf in man I am the fly that flew forth from the ark My thoughts like insects Whoring wounds divine Been bored with cosmos my dear old foe This universe has never been enough Compelled to liberate the spring ov life When the levee breaks gush forth o' stream ov ice I decompose in the rapture ov hells Dissolve divide disintegrate I am yours In euphoria below I cast my halo from perdition's clay Behold my bliss profane Born ov a lie Condemned to lurk Live in denial Yet coiled aflame. Phallus Dei, Erect from pole to pole, Viva blasfemia, In coitus infinitus. For thine is the kingdom, And the power. Concord in temptation, And in the fall of Eve. It is truly magnificent, and deserves all the adulation it will no doubt get. As I beheld the bewilderment ov Eden Break the bread.

Thou Satan-Sun Hadith that goest without Will! Thou essence, air swift-streaming, elasticity! For thine is the kingdom, And the power. The lyrics are so dark they would make even the lowliest of souls whimper, and the music is nothing short of vicious in so many ways. This is certainly a track for the black metal purists. Thou wanderer, father of all! Hear me, and make all spirits subjects unto me; so that every spirit of the firmament and of the ether, upon the earth and under the earth, on dry land and in the water of whirling air, and of rushing fire, and every spell and scourge of god may be obedient unto me. I am the great rebellion Neath Milton's tomb I dwell An existence even sin would not pardon No guilt, no reason, saviour, or shame. The mix of styles and motifs in the first three tracks is dizzying but it is so hard to stop.
Satan, thou eye, thou lust! They shimmer up and down in a fashion that could make you feel queasy. Hear me, and make all Spirits subject unto Me; so that every Spirit of the Firmament and of the Ether: upon the Earth and under the Earth, on dry land and in the water; of Whirling Air, and of rushing Fire, and every Spell and Scourge of God may be obedient unto Me.

LyricsBehemoth Lyrics provided by SongLyrics. In the Absence ov Light Lyrics22.
For thine is the kingdom, And the glory, Forever. O Father O Satan O Sun! Empire's fall, Petition the lord with fire, Santa Sede burns. So that I may with him dance, play with him, with him fight, in front of him pretend, give him thanks, and him, rape. Whirl the Wheel, O my Father, O Satan, O Sun! In The Absence Ov Light breaks in the middle for a spoken word section that is set to a haunting acoustic guitar section before a full on black metal onslaught of blast beats and dense riffs take the album to murky new depths. The fall and torment ov shame, I'll smite Heaven's golden pride, And never pity thee, Immaculate divine.
Hear the universe scream, Bleeding from black holes, Whom horns caress, And whom God mourns. If Satan wanted a soundtrack to approaching his unholy lair, this would be a contender.

Ora pro nobis Lucifer, You alone have suffered. The solitary drum beats towards the end are akin to being bludgeoned around the head without submission. The extreme metal pioneers have pulled out all the stops to make The Satanist not only a truly remarkable record, but a completely believable credo of their beliefs. Whilst I would like to respond to every email, this is not always possible. With such a bold album title, not just any band could pull off such a statement. With a particularly obscene opening lyric and some quite simply frightening visuals, 2014 could well belong to Behemoth on so many levels. Conjure the serpent messenger, Saviour order in world's decay.
