about

"Through 9 days and 9 nights, the soul of a young man falls like an anvil from the sky, and breaks through the ground to it´s deepest point. Once he awakes, he finds out, horrified, that his body was left behind in the fire that made him die.
The sky looks like a rock dome, and the ground is covered in ashes. Before him, and infinite lake, and in the distance, a figure that comes closer, sailing over the condemned souls that couldn´t make it to the other side. It is then when he realizes where he is, and who's coming aboard to meet him. Every soul has to pay to cross, but this time, the ferryman doesn´t doubt and asks him to get on board. His orders are precise: To take the young man to his father, the same God that sealed his fate, and is awaiting in the depths of Hell"

about

Chaos Before Gea Málaga, Spain

"First of all Chaos came into being. But then
Gea broad-chested, always the unshakable seat of all
the immortals who hold the peaks of snowy Olympus,
and dark Tartaros in the recesses of the wide-wayed earth(...)
From Chaos were born Erebos and black Night".

Hesiod, Theogony (S.VII b.C)

Track Name: In Death
IN DEATH

I´M TRAVELING THROUGH DARKNESS (I CAN´T SEE OR HEAR)
I CAN´T SEE OR HEAR A SINGLE THING (CONSTANT MOTION)
I´M TRAVELING THROUGH DARKNESS
CONSTANT MOTION AND A SENSE OF PEACE
WHY I HAVEN´T FELT ANYTHING?

NOW I CAN SEE A GHASTLY SIGHT
A CEILING MADE OF STONES MOLDED BY TIME
THE SUN IS NOT ABOVE ME
I CAN SEE HELL CAUSE I´M

DEAD AND THIS IS HELL
DEAD I AM DEAD AND THIS IS HELL
DEAD THE LAST THING I REMEMBER IS THE FIRE

AS A MILLION DAGGERS GOING THROUGH MY HEART
IT KILLS ME TO KNOW THAT I WASTED MY LIFE
IN DEATH WE MISS THE MOMENTS
THAT WHEN WE´RE ALIVE MAKE US WANT TO DIE

I FEEL THE URGE TO MOVE
AND I START TO DESCEND THE BIG SLOPE
THE VISION GROWS IT´S INTENSITY
I CAN SEE HELL CAUSE I´M

DEAD AND THIS IS HELL
DEAD I AM DEAD AND THIS IS HELL
DEAD THE LAST THING I REMEMBER IS THE FIRE

BEFORE I REALIZE, I´M SURROUNDED BY A DEAD FOREST MADE OF ASHES AND STONES
I TRY TO STOP WALKING BUT I´M NOT MOVING WILLINGLY
(I CAN´T STOP)
BEHIND THE GREY CONIFERS I SEE ANODINE FACES
(FACES)
FROZEN IN TIME, ONLY THEIR EYESARE MOVING ALL AROUND

OUH

I CAN´T HELP TO WORRY
ABOUT ALL THAT´S LEFT BEHIND

BURNING DOWN THE ORDER
THE LAST THING I REMEMBER

BURNING DOWN THE ORDER

AND THIS IS HELL

AS A MILLION DAGGERS GOING THROUGH MY HEART
IT KILLS ME TO KNOW THAT I WASTED MY LIFE
IN DEATH WE MISS THE MOMENTS
THAT WHEN WE´RE ALIVE MAKE US WANT TO DIE

IN DEATH WE MISS THE MOMENTS
Track Name: Moaning In Agony
MOANING IN AGONY

AS THE SOIL I WALK IT´S MORPHING
I RISE MY EYES AND THROUGH THE GLOOM

AN ARCH OF STONE PRETTY MUCH WORN FROM CENTURIES
AND IT´S SCRIPTION CAN BARELY BE SEEN

PUNISHMENT FOR THE HUMAN KIND

THROUGH ME LIES THE PATH TO THE ANCIENT CITY
THROUGH ME LIES THE PATH TO ALL THE SINNERS

WISE JUSTICE AND LOVE

ABANDON ALL HOPE WHO ENTER HERE...
ALL WHO ENTER HERE...

THROUGH ME LIES THE PATH TO THE ANCIENT CITY
THROUGH ME LIES THE PATH TO ALL THE SINNERS

WISE JUSTICE AND LOVE

ABANDON ALL HOPE WHO ENTER HERE...
ALL WHO ENTER HERE...

ALL OF A SUDDEN, AS I FINISH READING THE SCRIPT
I´M ABSORBED ACROSS THE ARCH TO A SEA OF SCREAMS

MOANING IN AGONY...

I TRY TO GO PAST BUT AN OMINOUS THREE-HEADED BEAST STANDS THERE
ALL WHO TRY TO GO PAST ARE DEVOURED AND THREW UP VIOLENTY

ALL THEY TRY (IS) TO HURT THEMSELVES
THEY DON´T HAVE A BODY TO WOUND

MOANING IN AGONY

A GIANT ELDER,
GRABS ME WITH HIS CLAWS
AND THROWS ME INSIDE A BOAT
NEXT TO A FEW OTHER SOULS
Track Name: Khâron
KHÂRON

AS THE BOAT SAILS (THROUGH) A RIVER MADE OF SOULS
DON´T EXPECT TO EVER SEE THE SKY AGAIN

I COME TO DILLIGENTLY TAKE YOU
TO THE GLOOM OF FIRE AND ICE

FIRST STOP: THE BLACK RAINFOREST AND THE SEVEN WALLS
AT THE SECOND THE LUSTFULL ARE INSIDE AN
ETERNAL SWIRL. AND TRAPPED IN MUD,
THE GLUTTONOUS ARE LASHED BY THE RAIN

BLOOD, FIRE AND DEADS ARE EVERYWHERE, AT THE DARKNESS' REALM

ONLY TWO REMAIN!!

KHÂRON IS MY NAME, AND MY MISSION IS TO TAKE YOU TO MY FATHER

THROUGH NINE INFERNAL STOPS,
ONE BY ONE ALL THE SINNERS
DISEMBARK, ONLY TWO REMAIN,
I RECOGNIZE HIS FACE, BUT HE IS NOT HIM (ANYMORE)

MURDERERS, SUICIDALS, RAPISTS AND TRAITORS OF ALL KIND
ARE DELIVERED TO THEIR CORRESPONDING

EXECUTIONER. THE ONLY SOUND
MILLIONS OF SOULS THAT CAN´T BREATH OR DROWN

ONLY TWO REMAIN!!
AS THE BOAT SAILS THROUGH A RIVER MADE OF SOULS
DON´T EXPECT TO EVER SEE THE SKY AGAIN

KHÂRON IS MY NAME, AND MY MISSION IS TO TAKE YOU TO MY FATHER

YOU KNOW YOU'RE NOT CHOSEN BY CHANCE,
IT IS NO COINCIDENCE THAT BOTH OF YOU STAND HERE AT THE GATES
YOU KNOW YOU'RE NOT CHOSEN BY CHANCE

ONLY TWO REMAIN!!

IT IS NOW WHEN WE LOSE TRACK OF WHAT'S HAPPENING
BLOOD, FIRE AND DEADS ARE EVERYWHERE, AT THE DARKNESS' REALM
Track Name: The Voice
THE VOICE

THE VOICE THAT SEEMS TO COME FROM EVERYWHERE
THE VOICE KEEPS SPEAKING

HUMAN RACE WENT TOO FAR
IT WAS CONCEIVED AS A SLAVE RACE
COMMITED TO THE PURPOSE THAT THE GODS GAVE THEM

THE VOICE KEEPS SPEAKING
THE VOICE THAT SEEMS TO COME FROM EVERYWHERE
THE VOICE KEEPS SPEAKING

YOU ,UNLOYAL RACE ,HAVE SICKENED OUR MOTHER, THE EARTH
CHAOS IS WAITING HIS REVENGE
THEY ARE THE LURKERS OF THE DARK
THAT BEING THOUSANDS ARE ONE
THINKING INDIVIDUAL AT THE SAME TIME

EREBO, CHOSEN AS THE NEMESIS FOR THE HUMAN RACE

THEY REAPED ALL THOSE SOULS
THAT WERE LEFT IN THE DARK, AT THEIR REACH
AND THEY ALSO HAVE PUNISH THEM WITHOUT MERCY
THEY HAVE ACCOMPLISHED THEIR GOAL
UNTIL YOUR EXTINCTION
ALL MEN AREN´T MEN ANYMORE

EREBO, CHOSEN AS THE NEMESIS FOR THE HUMAN RACE

THE VOICE KEEPS SPEAKING

I FEEL THE FUSE, OF A HEART
I DON´T HAVE ANYMORE

ALL MEN THAT INHABITED THE EARTH
AREN´T MEN ANYMORE

ONLY THE WASTE LEFT OF THEIR INNER BEINGS
CONDEMNED TO ROAM IN / IN THE DEPTHS OF HELL

NO UNEMBODIED SOUL CAN´T LIVE UNDER THE SUN
EACH ILLNESS HAS A CURE / OUR BEAUTIFULLPLANET WOULD
HAVE IT´S OWN FOR

THE WORST PARASITE

BALANCE MUST BE RESTORED
MAN HAS BEING DESIGNED TO INHABIT THE EARTH

THE VOICE THAT SEEMS TO COME FROM EVERYWHERE
THE VOICE WENT ON
Track Name: Time Stands Still
TIME STANDS STILL

“REASONING IS THE SPARK THAT YOU CALL SOUL
THAT DOESNT MAKE U A GOD
IS NOT YOUR TASK TO ALTER THE NATURAL WORLD´S EQUILIBRIUM”

IT IS NOW WHEN I´M TANGLED IN CONFUSION DEFINITELY
AND SEEING THE FACE OF MY COMPANION...SO IS HE

FEAR, AND ONLY FEAR IS THE OWNER OF HIS SOUL, (AND MINE AS WELL)
I REALIZE THAT EVERYBODY LOSE HIS COURAGE, (EVEN THE BRAVEST MEN)


AND PRAY TO GODS THEY NEVER BELIEVED IN
AND PRAY TO GODS


THE GROUND SHAKES
AND THE BIG DOOR OF DITE SLOWLY OPENS IN FRONT OF US
ONCE OPENED
THE FERRYMAN LEAVES US IN THE SHORE
ACROSS THE THRESHOLD
UNBEARABLE SMELL OF BLOOD
TAKE A LOOK AT THE ROAD
IT´S MADE OF SKULLS AND BONES

MINE IS THE WORLD FROM DUSK TILL DAWN
(I REAP THE HUMAN SOULS)

SUDDENLY, DARKNESS
HOWLING WIND AND CHURNING FIRE IS
WHAT THE LAST CHILD OF GEA AND I FEEL

A VOICE LIKE...

A VOICE LIKE HAS NEVER BEEN HEARD BEFORE
TAKES CONTROL OF MY BRAIN
A VOICE THAT CAN´T BE HEARD BUT FELT
LIKE A MILLION BLADES
IN THE BACK OF MY MIND

MINE IS THE WORLD FROM DUSK TILL DAWN
(I REAP THE HUMAN SOULS)

THERE ARE NO MORE SOUND, COLORS OR SCENTS, JUST EMPTINESS
WHERE I AM

TIME STANDS STILL...

FEAR, AND ONLY FEAR IS THE OWNER OF HIS SOUL, (AND MINE AS WELL)
I REALIZE THAT EVERYBODY LOSE HIS COURAGE, (EVEN THE BRAVEST MEN)
Track Name: A New Mankind
A NEW MANKIND

ALL MATTER VIBRATES / AS A DISTANT MOAN IS HEARD

RISING FROM THE VOWELS OF THE PLANET
WHERE DARKNESS TURNS INTO LUMINOUS MATTER

SURROUNDING AN IRON HEART
FURTHER DOWN FROM WHERE WE STAND

"IT´S MY WILL, THE WILL OF EVERY OTHER GOD
MAN SHALL LIVE ON EARTH AGAIN

AS SOON AS MY WOUNDS ARE HEALED
BUT...NOTHING WILL EVER BE THE SAME...

A NEW MANKIND, PERFECTIONED BY IT´S CREATORS
THOUGHTS OF NEW HOPE ENTER MY MIND

IF WE HAVE BEEN MADE PERFECT FROM THE START
WE WOULD HAVE BEEN SPARED OF SO MUCH...SUFFERING

THIS MAKES REALIZE THAT EVEN GODS AREN'T PERFECT (SUFFERING)

TWO SOULS WITHIN A NEW BODY WILL FORM A NEW BEING
BOTH WILL MELT INTO ONE AND WILL EMBRACE THE NEW TREE OF LIFE

CHOSEN BY THE ELDER FOR IT´S PURITY
(NINE CHILDREN OF REASON)
TWO SERPENTS WILL GUARD IT´S LEGACY
(NINE CHILDREN OF NATURE)

EVERY ONE / CARRIES ON ALONE
FOR EVERY GOD WOULD RETURN TO THEIR CELESTIAL THRONES

A NEW MANKIND, PERFECTIONED BY IT´S CREATORS
THOUGHTS OF NEW HOPE ENTER MY MIND
Track Name: March Forth
MARCH FORTH

GEA’S WORDS ARE RECEIVED
WITH A CLAMOROUS FEELING OF VICTORY
BY THE GUARDIANS OF HELL.
MILLIONS OF DARK CREATURES START MARCHING ON

“MARCH FORTH, NETHERWORLD LEGION,
MARCH FORTH! AND NEVER LOOK BACK”

MY PARTNER AND I OBSERVE OVERWHELMED
AS WE'RE TAKEN TO THE ELDER AGAIN

THIS TIME, WHEN WE GET ON THE BOAT,
THERE´S ONLY A FEW SOULS, AND THEY DONT MOAN

“MARCH FORTH, NETHERWORLD LEGION,
MARCH FORTH!!! AND NEVER LOOK BACK”

MARCH! LEGIONS! MARCH! AND NEVER LOOK BACK!

NEITHER DO WE ASK FOR MERCY. WE ARE JUST SILENT SPECTATORS.

KHARON TAKES OUT A BUNCH OF SHACKLES
THAT WERE KEPT UNDER HIS BLACK CLOTHES.

EVERY PRISONER IS TIED TO A PARTNER,
MAKING NINE COUPLES. NOBODY SPEAKS A WORD.

“MARCH FORTH, NETHERWORLD LEGION,
MARCH FORTH!!! AND NEVER LOOK BACK”

NEITHER DO WE ASK FOR MERCY. WE ARE JUST SILENT SPECTATORS.
THE DAMNED SOULS REALIZE THEIR SENTENCE AND TRY TO BOARD THE BOAT.

THEY ALL YELL AT THE ONES, LIKE ME, WHO HAVE BEEN CHOSEN
DEATH ONLY FUELED THEIR ANGER, AS THE PUNISHMENT INCREASED THEIR GRUDGE.

BUT THEY ACHIEVE NOTHING, THE INFERNAL DOME CRACKS OPEN.

NEITHER DO WE ASK FOR MERCY. WE ARE JUST SILENT SPECTATORS.
SELENE WELCOMES US TO A BRIGHT NIGHT, WE ARE GUARDED BY LEGIONS

MARCH! LEGIONS! MARCH! AND NEVER LOOK BACK!!
Track Name: Red Lights
RED LIGHTS

DIE!!!

AMONGST THE CLOUDS / A NEVER SEEN BEFORE STAR IS COMING THROUGH
RED IS THE TAIL / CHASING IT

ALARM VOICES ARE HEARD / AND WE SET SAIL ABRUPTLY
THROUGH A WARM SEA INTO A CAVE / RED LIGHTS LEAD THE WAY

RED LIGHTS LEAD THE WAY
WHILE THE GROUND BEGINS TO SHAKE
WE START FLYING FURTHER AWAY

WE SHOULD HAVE NEVER USED OUR POWER TO CHANGE CREATION
AS CHAOS WOULD ALWAYS REESTABLISH THE EQUILIBRIUM

DIE!!! EARTH WILL DIE, FOR IT´S MERCY
DIE!!! EARTH WILL DIE, FOR FORGIVING MANKIND

WE START FLYING FURTHER AWAY / AS THE RED SPHERE
IS GETTIN CLOSER, TO OUR BLUE PLANET

AS BEAUTIFUL IT COULD BE / ALL THE PRIDE WE COULD FEEL
SOON TURNS INTO HORROR, SOON TURNS INTO HORROR
WE SHOULD HAVE NEVER USED OUR POWER TO CHANGE CREATION
AS CHAOS WOULD ALWAYS REESTABLISH THE EQUILIBRIUM

CHAOS DESTROYS THE EARTH, A GREAT BLINDING WAVE OF FIRE TAKES OVER
CHAOS DESTROYS THE EARTH, A GREAT BLINDING WAVE OF FIRE TAKES OVER
ONLY ASHES ARE LEFT, BY DESIGN OF CHAOS, CREATOR AND DESTROYER

WE SHOULD HAVE NEVER USED OUR POWER TO CHANGE CREATION
AS CHAOS WOULD ALWAYS REESTABLISH THE EQUILIBRIUM
AS BEAUTYFULL IT COULD BE / ALL THE PRIDE WE COULD FEEL
SOON TURNS INTO HORROR, SOON TURNS INTO HORROR

DIE!!! EARTH WILL DIE, FOR IT´S MERCY
DIE!!! EARTH WILL DIE, FOR FORGIVING MANKIND
