"Apex" as written by and John Kempainen Trevor Strnad....
Bury them all beneath heaping shovel fulls of lime
In shallow graves the shreds of flesh dissolve with time
The stench of burning human flesh, a makeshift cremation
A shriveling fragment of death's grand design

I insist -- the pleasure's all mine

With orgasmic bliss the human body is consumed
The loins are charred, the slabs of mean cut off and ground
With zeal I dine upon the skin, enthralled with elation
Souls of my victims within me, entombed

Palette wet with atrocity
I relish the last look in your eyes
Clutching your intestines, your scream echoes through me
Perfection; a murder divine

I hold the secrets of the dead within my grasp
As I poke and prod, your precious world is painted black I the controlled of
Your fate, a twisted creation
Until I've met my fancy I'll hammer and hack
Palette wet with atrocity
I relish the last look in your eyes

As I'm blissfully showered in blood
I shake with violent rapture as I gaze at my delicious feast
I cannot stop my salivation
My addiction to murder has peaked
Kneel only to my sick fixations
A complete symphony of your screams

Oh the cruelty of death!
I wield infinite

Lured by the cries of your damnation
I collect ornaments of the dead
Skin tingling with anticipation
I sever the last victim's head to be put on display

This mortal coil has born unto me death's secrets
This forensic inquisition, orgasmic
Another trophy of my bloodied psychosis
Another body to mangle; to ravage and explore

Palette wet with atrocity
I relish the last look in your eyes
Clutching your intestines, your scream echoes through me
Perfection; a murder divine..

    General CommentAh. This is a great song. Probably my favorite BDM song. Seems like its about Cannibalism and Murder.

    General CommentIt's pretty apparent what this song is about. Killing people and such or something along those lines. And, the talking bit that follows the music is rather creepy. Especially when you listen to what he is saying. Too bad that isn't posted here. It tells you how to decaptiate and de-limb a body. Hmmm....

    General CommentI can't quite get all of the directions:
    When the bleeding slows, preparation for decapitation can be started.
    Continue the cut to the through around the entire neck
    From the jaw line to the back of the skull
    Once muscle and ligament has been sliced away
    The head can cleanly be removed by ?burping it up busha? and twisting it off
    Separation occurring where the spinal cord meets the skull
    This is indicative of the method you use for dividing other bones from joints
    And of the need to generally be cut through first with a knife
    and the exposed bone then separated with a saw or cleaver.
    The merits of keeping the skull as a trophy are debated over for two principle reasons:
    First the human skull may draw suspicious attention to the new owner
    Second thorough cleaning is difficult due to the large brain mass,
    which is hard to remove without breaking the skull
    The brain does not need to be….
    Removing the tongue and eyes, skinning the head
    and placing it outside of the white cave would be effective
    The cave provides small scavengers such as ants and maggots
    which separate the flesh from the bone
    thereby Preventing it from being carried off by larger scavengers
    such as wolves and ?
    After a sufficient period of time you may retrieve the skull and boil it with ??

    General CommentClose, but the end goes like this:
    When the bleeding slows, preparation for decapitation can be started. Continue the cut to the throat around the entire neck, from the jawline to the back of the skull. Once muscle and ligament have been sliced away, the head can be cleanly removed by gripping it on either side and twisting it off, separation occurring where the spinal cord meets the skull. This is indicative of the method to be used for dividing other bones or joints, in that the meat should generally be cut through first with a knife, and the exposed bone then separated with a saw or cleaver. The merits of keeping the skull as a trophy are debatable for two principal reasons. First, a human skull may call suspicious attention to the new owner. Secondly, thorough cleaning is difficult due to the large brain mass, which is hard to remove without opening the skull. The brain is not good to eat. Removing the tongue and eyes, skinning the head, and placing it outside in a wire cage may be effective. The cage allows small scavengers such as ants and maggots to cleanse the flesh from the bones, while preventing it being carried off by larger scavengers, such as dogs and children. After a sufficient period of time, you may retrieve the skull and boil it in a dilute bleach solution to sterilize it and wash away any remaining tissue

    General CommentThe outro is an excerpt from a book, essentially a cannibal's cookbook. It's a real piece of literature, pretty interesting at that. I believe it's called "Butchering the human carcass for human consumption" or something like that.

    Anyways, the song is about desecration, dissection, and consuming of the dead, apparently killed by the gourmet himself. The album begins with several excerpts from the book as well.

    General Commentis it wrong that the first time i heard this i lauged out loud at the line, "your fate, a twisted creation/until i've met my fancy i'll hammer and hack"?
