Extracted essence of the stone
Narcotic of the faceless ones
I awake on planet black
freezing moon, no turning back

Forbidden Sorcery
Vinum Sabbathi

Now I'm a slave to the black drug
Forced to serve this black god
I thought myself a master of the arts
This dimension of misery is my penance

    General Commentdefinitely sounds like heroin, considering most of the other suggestions (weed, LSD) are non-addictive, and the line "now I'm a slave to this black drug" is clearly talking about dependency.

    General Comment"Vinum Sabbathi" translates to "Sabbath Wine" which is, in my opinion, a slang name Jus Oborn has given to Marijuana.... and the song is a dramatic, scary account of being under the influence of weed.

    General CommentAs soon as i first read lyrics to this song, I instantly thought of the drug DMT. his explination (talking of it's extraction, and the experience itself) seems to perfectly fit description of a DMT trip (a bad one of course).

    General CommentThis song is bad ass. I don't know what it's about, but I think it's about selling your soul to the occult or satan. I think it's about following the left-hand path and becoming a follower of darkness. I love the part when the overdrive is turned on and it gets extremely heavy and a bit distorted. HELL YES!

    General CommentThis rocks so much, it's incredible. I think too, it's about drugs.

    My Interpretationfirst verse kinda reminds me of Dagon by H.P Lovecraft
    where the protagonist awakes on a planets covered in a black ooze in the middle of the night, he wanders around for a bit & discovers a large stone with pictures about Cthulu (I think)

    General CommentThe second verse definitely sounds like it's about addiction. Maybe the first verse too. Awaking on planet black could be him realizing he's addicted to the "narcotic of the faceless ones". That doesn't sound like a song about weed though. Maybe like H or something.
