Noctilucant I haven't listened to SoD since the Dark Meditations days, where I recall the band displaying a more progressive/acoustic approach to their BM. Thus I was quite surprised by the more chaotic and yet still melodic approach on this latest offering. Great!

HollowHecatomb is one of my favorite projects in the experimental music scene -- often changing and never the same thing from this talented composer. These two doomier styled tracks really solidify his relevance in the scene. Excellent!

Track Name: Shroud of Despondency-A Gift from the Christians
I am a mightier animal!
Since birth a human animal
Learned so much in the hands of the Christians
How to pretend Christ was compatible
With what naturally became my mission
Since birth a human animal
Learned so much about how to disguise
How to lie where hate was practical
Felt their hypocrisy slowly giving rise
To a mightier animal
Since birth a human animal
Learned so much in the hands of the Christians
How to pretend Christ was compatible
With what naturally became my mission
Since birth a human animal
Learned so much about how to disguise
How to lie where hate was practical
Felt their hypocrisy slowly giving rise
To a mightier animal
It took the paint shop to make me see the love of Jesus
The salt in my wounds from the straps of old men
It took them to show me what to do with my penis
I love him so damn much I'd crucify him all over again
I'd crucify him all over again
Consuming-the thoughts of revenge
Grooming me to be my own beast
Abusing-so I comprehend
Forming the cloak of hypocrisy
Now I tell them how much I love Christ
They look into the whites of my eyes
They give me freedom, call me pure as a lily
Now before I murder I make sure to sodomize
Now I tell them how much I love Christ
They look into the whites of my eyes
They give me freedom, call me pure as a lily
Now before I murder I make sure to sodomize
I make sure to sodomize
Track Name: Shroud of Despondency-Reformation
A wish that determines truth
An overwhelming impulse that dictates all action
A wealth of malicious proof
Reasons reformation brings satisfaction
1000 hosts to a violent will
Penetrated in a chain reaction
21 voices shrill
Snuffed out in the name of putrefaction
The only way to reform is to kill
Give flesh to the gutters
No need for man, God, nor Devil
This lesson taught by others
Might makes right
One race, one neck, one set of hands to alleviate the pain
One wish for even the harmless and weak, fade out to disdain
Disdain personified, spiteful flood tide
Everything grows to die, reform or live unfortified
One race, one neck, one set of hands to alleviate the pain
One wish for even the harmless and weak, fade out to disdain
Disdain personified, spiteful flood tide
Everything grows to die, reform or live unfortified
Contempt epitomized, reason dignified
Moral purpose uncivilized, project onto the victimized
So full of hate
No reason for love
So full of hate
No reason for pity
So full of hate
No reason for kindness
So full of hate
No reason for honor or decency
The only way to reform is to kill
Give flesh to the gutters
No need for man, God, nor Devil,
This lesson taught by others
This lesson taught by others
Track Name: HollowHecatomb-Benevolence is Dead
The day has arrived
There's no going back
Cold winds are blowing away
all meaning and all hope
For they have risen
Machineries fueled by hate
No rest for the wicked
No light that's in our sight

Into the pit we go
We'll take them down with us
And we will give back
all they gave to us

There's no stopping the madness
Insanity takes control
And now the truth has shown
that benevolence is dead

Dripping away like wax
from a burning candle
The turning of the hourglass
There's not that much time left
We're walkers in the fog
waiting for the next attack
Roaming through the ruins
with our flesh stripped from all bones
Track Name: HollowHecatomb-Slaughterchrist
Tanks and bombshells all over the place
but you're a man who always keeps his word
Death toll rises but no worries
it's all part of your masterplan
Patience is a virtue, confidence a must
for with time it shall all make sense to us
But in the meantime let the apocalypse reign
and may it puke missiles upon the land

Slaughtercrist is on the rise

Suit and tie with slicked back hair
A real fucking ace you always are
With a gun in your right hand, an axe in your left
and a grenade on your belt
May you forever rule supreme
in this wasteland you have created for all of us
As you roll around with the pigs
in a pen of mud, shit, puss, piss, and blood

Slaughterchrist in on the rise
