"Hymn For The Wretched" as written by and David Lock Brian Eschbach....
We are the blackness of the night
Cold wind that cuts your flesh
We are the enemy praying for your certain death
We are what was, will be forevermore
In the stillest hours we awaken, enshrouded in the dark

Children of the blackest seed
Reared on murder and deceit
We are the thorns of human woe
His will be done

To the humble maggots
To the putrid flies
Where death and hatred lurk
We shall survive

To the diseases
To the sharpest knives
When daybreak no more comes
We shall arise

We are the sickness, the stench of the deceased
Your father's secret shame
Our violent wrath shall be unleashed
We feast on blood and the weakness of your kind
From the haunted depths we have arisen to slither as the snake

Children of the blackest seed
Reared on murder and deceit
We are the thorns of human woe
His will be done

To the humble maggots
To the putrid flies
Where death and hatred lurk
We shall survive

To the diseases
To the sharpest knives
When daybreak no more comes
We shall arise

Lurking legion of the obscene
Unheard forever in between
Unbound
The liars in wait
Our being you forsake

Whispers upon the winds, profane
Unheard, the wretched and the insane
Unbound, forgotten, ignored
The ugliness abhorred

The razor; the bullet; the length of rope
Our tools are numerous, our hatred overflows
The razor; the bullet; the length of rope
A lapse of sanity plummets to earth below

We are the blackness of the night
Cold wind that cuts your flesh
We are the enemy praying for your certain death
We are what was, will be forevermore
In the stillest hours we awaken, enshrouded in the dark

We are the sliver in your god's feeble hand
During the silent hours, the shadows we command
We're the undying insect, from the deepest cracks we came
For eons we have lurked and for eons we shall remain!

    General CommentThis song has what could be the fastest blastbeat I have ever heard. I love this bands lyrics. They talk about dark deathlike topics in a very poetic manner and is much more intelligently written then most of the MDM scene. But melodic death isnt really about lyrics and vocals as much as it is just the music but with this band, everything shows a large amount of talent. Usually a band would need to singers to pull off this vocalist's range. These guys are definately overlooked.

    General CommentThis song is about a collective of outcasts, heretics, etc, who prey on the humanity that rejected them.

    The Bezerker's drums are programmed, hence the speed of the blast beats.

    Trevor provides all vocals on the recordings, often on different tracks (always for the parts with both ranges at once). Low vocals are done by a guitarist when both voices are needed live.
