CedrickTheSaxon This album absolutely slays. Complex, catchy, and addictively evil, Beyond The Forest will leave you spellbound.

CARPAGE Serpent Willow is a dirty, gritty headbanger that is only 2:45 in length but is the definition of epic. Diversity is this bands strength, twelve songs, all with their own groove, and understandable vocals! Favorite track: Serpent Willow.

Track Name: Beyond The Forest
2. Beyond The Forest

(Welcoming: The tower of Nex Animus)

“Fall down
Into the pit
You will suffer
Forever alone”

“Enter
Through these graves
You will suffer
In my world”

Fog of delusion
Held these eyes in its blind
Spirit blood paved this maze
And soon the mist began to cease….

Voices revealed as screaming figures in stone
Evil dreams carved this world
“Relinquish Flesh or suffer the rebirth!”

Frantic in my ascent
Up the mountainside
I ran from the fear
Chasing the light of red calling me
Towards the black shape
Piercing through the night sky
To be revealed as a fortress
Unknown to mortal fear
I command you, open the gates of darkness!

“See in display, the ancient ways of hate
A disease reborn forever in this world
And soon you will descend below the light
Soon you, mortal soul, will suffer rebirth!”

Follow in the shadow of his bane
Up the stair case
Where visions impaled
Obscuring perceptions
Of king and queen
At the ceremonial feast

Gluttony became over the king
As sickness began to spread
Out from his mortal veins
Shadows soon would burst

This ceremony defiled
With stains of mortal blood
Unto the mortals eyes
Reflections of the dark

His servants hanging suspended
From the chandelier dripping blood
Drowning in human liquids
His kingdom….gone

And then the candles died
But life came from her scream
The flames emerged again
Only to find the queen’s body

Raped.

“All you beheld is fear, hidden in the corridors of mind
Follow warrior! Up this staircase!
To the highest spire of this land”

“Behold the horizon that await you,
In the barren lands we call the Orcus.
Forged by dormant evils of the human minds
Though most mortals who have crossed have fallen below the light
And under the rebirth…”

“But if you wish to face the darkness of this world
And prevail still a mortal man.
Then all worlds will be yours to command’

Face the darkest night!

“Carry this blade
Forged by souls of warrior(s) unknown
To your escape
But soon enough they will decide your fate!”

“Fear what lies ahead
Into the dark forest
Where you will bleed your inner fear!
And what lies ahead
Over this dark fortress
You must remain of mortal blood”

I am the warrior you’re searching for
Stronger than a mortal, ill never fall
Facing towards the moon I can hear my calling

I am the ghost of the lunar wolf
Trapped in the body of a mortal man
Waiting for my legacy to be revealed

I am the warrior you’re eyes behold
Wielding my blade against the sorcery
From the mystic blood I will gain their powers

I am the ghost of lunar wolf
Searching for the lost beauty of Lorraine
This dagger hungers for the spirit blood

“And I will be you’re guardian
Through the cold realm of Orcus”

Fearless I leap
From the highest point in the sky
I fall
To the land beyond the forest I will go!
Track Name: Rusalka Succubus
3. Rusalka Succubus

(The Lonely Forest Dweller)

In the dark mystic woods where the light is scorned
A lost warrior rode into the realm of horns.

Demons haunt the forest in search of human spirits....

Out of the black abyss a light is seen
A young girl bathing in a river stream

Her beauty brings me lust, she calls my name
Her body possesses my soul to rape
Resisting temptation, the spell is broken
Her skin peals, a true from revealed.

A lonely spirit turned to succubus....

A vision of the past
I see the young virgin
With no will to live
She drowns herself

She takes me underneath the river stream
Where hundreds of men lay in eternal sleep

The gods gave her the name: Rusalka.
A curse was given to thirst for blood

She falls into my arms and begins to weep
Her lonely spirit yearns to be free

Cold winds strike the trees
I feel her tears begin to freeze
In my ears, she whispers the key
A young man's love will set her spirit free..

A lonely spirit turned to succubus...

I hold her tight
Her beauty returns
Her arms around me
She begins to arouse me….

I see her eyes turning white.
I feel the fangs begin to bite
Into my neck, my throat is crushed!
Into her stomach my knife will thrust.

Her blood on my skin
Melting my flesh
My knife will thrust
Into her neck

Now her body flows down the river stream
A young man's love has set her spirit free....
Track Name: Serpent Willow
4. Serpent Willow (Wyrmuul)

(An Epitaph On The Dying Father Of Lies)

Hungry spirits roam the darkest trails
A place no man would dare to cross
Those who bare a canidae upon their shield
Shall feel the rebirth of their souls…..

Under the mountain shadow
There grow the serpent willow

The whispers will taunt the peasant mind
The will of life fails to with hold
Soon the evil spirit will seep inside
And thus rebirth the human soul!

Total silence
As spirits harvest

The portal lies within the willow tree
All shall follow into their destiny

Here, marked, the gate to the underworld
Is the shadow on the mountainside
Waiting for god’s (Divus) foolish warriors
Who put their trust in his feeble light

Total silence
As spirits harvest

The rivers will flow with angel blood
As necromancers call to raise the dead
Spirits! Arise from the shadows
As the harvest moon shines red

Under the mountain shadow
There grow the serpent willow

Hungry spirits roam the darkest trails
A place no man would dare to cross
Those who bare a canidae upon their shield
Shall feel the rebirth of their souls…..
Track Name: Impaled Visions Breed Within The Vines
5. Impaled Visions Breed Within The Vines

(A Witness To The Birth Of Orcus: Suicide)

(I)

Shadows screamed from the vines below the light
Endlessly tortured by existence…

Soon the lights will fall…. Into the black abyss
And I shall become one with this night.

The nameless ones with hold the darkest fate
A hate that breeds under the tree of lies
The suicidal god hangs in display
Within his eyes, a gate into the past!
(II)

Within this mind, the urge becomes need
Within this suffering, impaled visions breed
Within this fear, the effigy of nightmares bled
Within these vines
Figures hanging in shinning lights of red

“Mirrors reflecting
What you keep inside
A portrait forged in solitude
Project a canvas of your darkest side
Let it become apart (but) with you”

“The darkest powers are held within the blood of the vines”

(III)

Prevailing from the unholy fire
Rejoicing in sorcery
Feeling the rush in my blood
“Release the evil energy”

“Hooded mage dressed in black
Embrace the powers of the night
Dance within the circle of death”
Lightning strikes the mountainside
My Rebirth!
Track Name: Calling To The Canidae Hordes
6. Calling to the Canidae Horde

(Assembling Of The Animus Hordes)

Tonight -The eye of hordes ahead
We will ride – Across skies that never end
Calling now – For the shadows to be reaped
Riding towards the palace where he sleeps.

From the silent abyss
Shadows hanging on the thorns within the mist.
We come to drink the blood of fools
With the blades to pierce the skin
And through the black we sing of ancient rite
Foreseen as anything that comes before the wisdom of his floating eye
The calling is to reunite
Animus hordes to gather with their
blades to break the palace doors

The lunar orb is full and high
No stars dwell in this sky
Beneath the earth this world came to life
We will ride!

From the mystic woods
And canyons where no light resides
I will call for the hordes
To light up the sky
And with our flames we burn the gate of vines
The wall that separates the elders from the one who seeks the throne divine
Our calling is to reunite
Animus hordes to gather with their blades
To tear down Senjyn’s gates.

The lunar orb is full and high
No stars dwell in this sky
Beneath the earth this world came to life
We will ride!

He who seeks to reap the spoils we receive
And wish to share it not with his brethren
The hordes have gathered with the strength and hate of I
Mine wisdom holds no bound or trial that could not defeat in time

Now the wall that you have formed has burnt to ash
I refrain to let you know I come to take the throne
I come not to restore the ways of Earthly balance.
I chose to break away to realms where my hatred can multiply.

Die!
Tonight -The eye of hordes ahead.
We will ride – Across skies that never end
Calling now – For the shadows to be reaped
Riding towards the palace where he sleeps.

From the silent abyss
Shadows hanging on the thorns within the mist.
We come to drink the blood of fools
With the blades to pierce the skin
And through the black we sing of ancient rite
Foreseen as anything that comes before the wisdom and the strength of I
The calling is to reunite
Canidae hordes to gather with their
blades to break the palace doors


The lunar orb is full and high
No stars dwell in this sky
Beneath the earth this world came to life
The lunar orb is full and high
No stars dwell in this sky
The Orcus realm will gain the strength of mine
Calling to the Canidae Hordes.
Track Name: Through The Catacombs
7. Through the Catacombs

(The Palace Of Senjyn Ahkci)

An unknown voice echoed through the night
To possess my mind.
"Follow its call through the evil woods
And forgotten times"
A path paved in serpent’s blood
To a world beyond.
Leading through the nether realm.
Where evil dreams are born.

The cold wind dies before the gates
And the funeral grounds.
A tomb hidden by the fallen graves
Marked with Senjyn's cross.
Breaking the seal of the demonic god
The crypts open wide:
The stairs leading down into the womb
Where evil dreams are born.

With blade drawn I cut into my veins
The blood exposed slowly becomes profane
Purified in hate I became an immortal soul
My existence now a tool for your control.

The catacombs sink into evil ground
Revealing the altar of Ahkci.

(Senjyn)

"Oh great warrior who cometh from a far time
And wish to become ruler of this land?
Ye cannot prove himself worthy of command of thy legions lupus.
Your veins open holes for my siphoning
To drain you of your mortal coil!"

Poison my blood
Within take form
Enter my heart
Fuse in the soul.

Marked by the blades of the unholy priest
I am the chosen one
Senjyn seeps into soul genome
To be born again
Withholding now the divine truth
To destroy the light
We reverse the scribe of the holy tales
To breed the end of time.

Come forth thy lord of darkness!
Track Name: Come Forth
8. Come Forth

(Drinking The Souls Of The Orcus’ Gods)

Tonight marks the first in Senjyn’s reign of terror
Come forth thy black servants erupting from the altar.

Guided by the serpent markings
Carved in the flesh of the virgin
Through this dark pact
He shall be reborn

Plant the seed of destruction in the womb of the virgin
Cut the souls of fools. Released, the lord of the damned.

This unholy power I possess
Rooted in darkness unknown
My mind is yours
Command it as you must

(Wyrmuul)

I am the deceiver, the father of all lies
I am your leader, in my name you shall die

Hordes of darkness ride now
To wage war against Divus
Your heavens are our battleground
With hold the wisdom I have brought

Angels of mercy are weak bitter and cold
The breaking of the diamond will leave them in Orcus hold…
This unholy power I possess
Rooted in darkness unknown
My mind is yours
Command it as you must

(Senjyn Ahkci)

Ye great Divus shall on my command
You are a coward I banish ye from this land

This unholy power I possess
Rooted in darkness unknown
Your mind is ours
Command it as we must.
Track Name: Darkness As Black As Evil
9. Darkness As Black As Evil

(Swooned Into The Effigy Of Nightmares)

Dead inside, my eyes
Beheld a room of blood
A hospice for the faded.

Needles carved the exit
Into the halls
Where my portraits hang….

Wards within infirmaries
Forever bleak
Dishonored to be

When none doth dwell
But the patient in I
Where I will dine alone and writhe

My eyes
See down beneath
The surface of the floorboards

My eyes
Grow through the walls
I see…my soul and memories

I disgrace
This myriad spectrum
Sliting the Retina

Blind I am,
When the past returns
Needles carve their way into the nerves

Barbed flesh
To die in its light
Soon the light will die in black

And I will suffer alone

In Darkness As Black As Evil.
Track Name: Battles In The Medieval Sky
10. Battles In The Medieval Sky

(The End Of Balance: Destruction Of The Light World)

A vision from the age of sorcery
I feel the evil channel through my veins
The power of darkness, within my sword
Now it is the time to call the hordes!

Fallen angels follow towards the sky
Above the clouds the diamond moon aligned
I’ve been waiting so many ages for this day
The grand moment is now seconds away…

Black wizards call forth the freezing winds
I feel my sword pierce through the wall of gems
The rush of battle gives me my strength
Our forces with prevail under my dark embrace

The paladins of light fall to their knees
Lord Ausadjur grins as the warriors scream
Atop the wolf and with serpent sword
He Sets fire to the stream of light that pours

Angels call forth the final strike
Out of the diamond, holy stallions ride
In the cold moon’s light our swords meet
And now the angels will taste defeat.

Now through the portal I walk
I must go back to modern time
But when you call my name I will return
For battles in medieval skies…
Track Name: In The Vortex Of Time/Relinquish Flesh
11. In The Vortex Of Time/Relinquish Flesh

(Epiphany Between The Demise Of Three Worlds)

Nimbus clouds spiral down from the skies
Form the shape of a drain that siphons up the night
To the gateway above, in silence I ascend.
Up the vortex of time; my journey back to earth

With a cold blank stare, I watch this tempest pass
Winding all of this dimension, into a tunnel of glass
In the mouth up above a bulb pulsates in red…

Swallowed, into the sewer pipe
I close my restless eyes
To behold in a prophecy of the mind
My homeland of earth nearing the end of its time…

The human race falls, and all the shrines of greed
Burn down to the plains, the dirt from which they came

Relinquish flesh, search beneath the skin
Relinquish flesh, the human shell grows hallow
Relinquish flesh, extracting blood from vein
Relinquish flesh, all mystic souls are following your call

Towards the eye of the river stream
We await, the moment at which the two worlds converge..
Track Name: Forgotten Souls
12. Forgotten Souls

(The Final Day Of Earth)

Forgotten souls come forth
When the winds carry no life
Beholding the return of the ancient rites.

Oblivion descends over
The shrines of the modern world
Unknown, they are the summoners of their fate.

The Dimension of light now dethroned
Meaningless, no life persists when thoughts can’t grow
Orcus vines breaking the chapel walls
In human mind’s no balance exists at all…..

The elder gods awaken
To invade the Earthly sky
Calling on Canidae hordes to arise

Human blood runs from the forest
Into the fertile ground
“Death with holds the essence of rebirth”

Old man Nex I call for your eye
Still trapped in the Orcus realm now left behind
Though the portal has closed with you inside
I know that your lies brought me a gift to end this world.

The sun a falling star….into the sea space
Eternally consumed…within itself
A mournful symbol of a dying human race
Into the unknown this world has fell.

Out of the black abyss of night
Towards the sky the wolven brothers ride

Our spirits soaring, away so far.
Guided by the light of the falling star

Wisdom held strong from the ages now past
Above the universe a circle will be cast
Gathering now lost souls become one
And from into a star to become the new sun

Unveiled, a new age of light
Spread across the stars seeds of new life
The cosmic sea reborn again
Just like a story that never ends.
