Inferi Lyrics Ep: "Of Sunless Realms" (2020)

1. The Abhorrent Art Lyrics


Condemned
Yet before I cast the befouled
Contents of my mind across the wall
I wish to unburden my soul

That fateful eve we found ourselves in the shadow of an ivory cathedral
Compelled to behold the ghastly grave of a ghoul
And extract an artifact
In an effort to quell life’s ceaseless ennui
We have descended into depravity
The abhorrent art of grave robbery

Crack the lid, apex of our endeavor
Round the neck of this corpse lay our treasure
And when I seized the jade amulet it began
Echoing through the graveborn mists as if calling from the abyss
Distant baying - Colossal entity hellbent on slaying
And the foreboding gaze of an unnaturally well preserved corpse

A haunting presence of chilling malevolence shattered our solitude night after night
Baleful shades, creeping moonlight, and that accursed growl
I had an inkling that we were jointly going mad
Until the beast reared its loathsome head

[Solo: M. Pugh]

Bloodcurdling screams shook me from sleep
Shreds of my mangled partner littered the streets
The assailant flashed demonic eyes and bayed as it took to the sky

No doubt the same fate would befall me
Lest I somehow break the curse

Once again in the shadow of that ivory cathedral
Crack the lid, unveiling the vile thing caked with fresh blood
And shreds of flesh
I cast inside the cursed jade amulet

[Solo: M. Low]

Startled awake by the whirring wings and
Torturous baying of that horrific thing
A swift demise is the only mercy this world has left to offer
Before I find myself betwixt those cursed teeth
With this revolver, I embrace my fate and choose to obliviate


2. Eldritch Evolution Lyrics


Spewed from the bowels of the cosmic deep
Insidious sediments towards us doth creep
Ever closer
To sow the seeds of shores unknown
And proliferate till the host is consumed
Terramorphic

Impact
First contact yields a shockwave
And a smoldering crater
Though unseen this ill-born thing seeps from the chamber
Presence is palpable Ensnaring the sensory
Contagious, Necrotic, Symbiotic
Prismatic deity reshaping reality

Otherworldly Distortion
Hypnotic in nature It lives to deceive
Mutate the cells that host its disease
Eldritch Evolution
Each being a pawn for recreation
Twisting life into abomination

Pestiferous sentient pandemic
Recreates the world in its cruel aesthetic
A cradle of cellular malefaction

[Solo: M. Low]
[Solo: M.Pugh]

Otherworldly Distortion
Hypnotic in nature It lives to deceive
Mutate the cells that host its disease
Eldritch Evolution
Each being a pawn for recreation
Twisting life into abomination

A virulent outer one swathed the landscape
Unstoppable
Behold the ineffable
A grotesque horizon beyond belief

[Solo: M.Pugh]

Aberrations of writhing flesh
The haunting remnants of man transgress
Choruses frantic and forlorn
Gaea reborn a virulent spawn

Aberrations
Haunting remains
Frantic and forlorn
Gaea is reborn


3. Spellbound Unearthed Terror Lyrics


A tome sequestered from prying eyes
A manifesto of dark wizards fury
Stygian passages call to command a legion of the undead

Book of the dead
Spoken with dread
Were the pages of flesh being read
Dwellers of darkness
Thy words unleash The Spellbound Unearthed Terror

Sanctified and blood inscribed
Were the pages of flesh
Seething with death
Guardians of the gate abide
As their words unleashed demise

A manuscript of demons they said
As the scholars and intellects of man
Read and transcribed the pages of the hallowed
Tome of the damned

The power of gods unknown
Seeped from both parchment and spine
Restless, graves have awoken
Unbeknownst to them, a blight upon man

Book of the dead
Spoken with dread
Were the pages of flesh being read
Dwellers of darkness
Thy words unleash The Spellbound Unearthed Terror

The soiled was burdened with birth
And purged that which it once was fed
Disinterred enraptured
Cadavers laden the land

The once entombed self-exhume
Spellbound these puppets rip and consume
They know nothing of familial ties, if it breathes it dies

And then the heartbeats turned into screams
As the undead consumed them right in front of me
Whilst hiding in darkness hoping to survive the pandemonium
For every soul alive on this day a dozen deceased crawled from the grave
Harrowingly they hasten the fate inevitable
By means supernatural
Every soul that dies this day is another to rise and join their ranks

[Solo: M. Low]

Within the wake of despair
And ancient text in hand
I have obtained the ways of darkness

With cryptic tongue I demand
Bow before me
The embodiment of evil I am
The essence of all evil I have become

Eat of the flesh
Consume and ingest
Soul and sanity
Stripped of humanity
Astray from my name
I proclaim a bastion of fiendish plague

[Solo: M. Pugh]

Eat of the flesh
Consume and ingest
Soul and sanity
Stripped of humanity
Astray from my name
I proclaim a bastion of fiendish plague

4. The Summoning Lyrics



[Instrumental]



5. Aeons Torn Lyrics


Cloak and dagger be our deeds
As we drift upon starlit seas
Prophetic reality
Glorious wraith becoming of flesh
Incantation





From the depths of R'lyeh
Beckoning beyond the wall of sleep
The great dreamer dwelling beneath the waves
Creeping into the fleshy minds of mortal men
Molding dreams into nightmare

Fantasy
As prophesized
The dead shall rise
And the sunken shall awaken once more

Loathsome shaped acropolis
Corpse city penetrates the seas
Emerging from the darkest depths unseen
Converging with the fathomless necropolis

Breaching the slimy threshold of cyclopean vaults
We venture into the abyss

[Solo: Malcolm Pugh]

Ornate doorway begins to slide open wide
Stirring in the darkness
Sanguine eyes pierce my soul
Writhing tentacles emerge
Unveiling a gelatinous mountain of a form

Eldest horror now arise
Usher darkness until the end of time

Harbinger of madness
At long last now reborn
Behold the aeons torn

[Solo: Mike Low]



Cthulhu fhtagn

Disentombed
From the shackles of wretched stars
Oh eldritch priest
Baptize the world in lunacy

True horror takes form from the sea
Spreading its membranous wings
Cavernous jaws unleash the foulest reek
As if all to have ever lived and perished
Crawled from their graves to congregate

Merely an utterance of its omnipotence
The procession of sanity climaxes
Madness takes the minds of men

Hideous, the impetus and contorted infected flesh
Mindless caricatures born
Tainted is their form

Slithering spawnsires crawl from their crypts
Swarms of tendrils, eyes and horns
Boundless is their scorn
Cesspools of flesh, and things that should not be
Cascade the world, returning us back to nothingness
