Track Name: Cries Behind the Golden Walls
I called the black goat Shub-Niggurath:
“Show me delights beyond belief!
I call!
Give me the pleasures Azag-Thoth of the Stars the Moon and the endless Night”

From a distance, I saw the walls of Koth
I felt the frozen winds of Yugoth
I heard the faceless God
Screaming Blind over abysmal cliffs

I traveled through the mountain of Seth
As the Dark Spirits covered the Sun
I caress the Power and Wisdom
(That He unleashed) like a soothing wind

Some talk of the horrors lurking deep in the universe...

I sat beside the river of silver tears
And I gazed at the sky and heard a quiet melody
Then I beheld the Nereids of the woods
And She called me inside the passage
The passage to the unconceived Abyss
Screams from amorphous masses of emptiness
The fiends of Dark they drag me
Into the mighty dimensions of the Ancient Ones

Vorskaath 1991
Track Name: In the Arms of Hades
Black winged demons haunt the dungeons where the moment has no end
Unwept you shall be sent into the endless void of Tartarus
Below in Cimmerian ancient Temples your fate you will meet – I foresee
No warmth of Dawn can ever break the silence of the (coldest) Nights down there
Morpheus the Son of Sleep with mighty wings that make no sound
Invades thy Dreams with Memories, Illusions from the House of Hypnos
The waters of Black Acheron doth echo through your mind from waters you did come and (now) you shall go (to) the waters of Black Acheron!

The Seas of Sleep hold you in their depth
Distant screams; in Phlegethon there’s (only) Death
Among the Sons of man move forever
Strange, silent, shadows…

Vorskath 1996

The Foghorn of Charon sings gently to thee
Resist not what is Law!
Bite hard thy fare and surrender
To the Bringer of Woe
The veil of Sleep now gently falls and never you forget…
Among your Sons move forever, strange, silent Shadows.
