"Progenies Of The Great Apocalypse" as written by Stian Tomt Thoresen, Sven Atle Kopperud, Stian Tomt Thoresen, Sven Atle Kopperud and Tom Rune Andersen....
The battle raged on and on
Fuelled by the venom of hatred for man
Consistently, without the eyes to see
By those who revel in sewer equally

We, the prosperity of the future seal
Cloaked by the thunders of the north wind
Born to capture the essence of
The trails of our kind

Zero tolerance must be issued forth
Behind the enemy's line
So it shall be written
And so it shall be done

(repeat 1st and 2nd verse)

Discover and conceive the secret wealth
And pass it unto your breed
Become your own congregation
Measure the sovereignty of it's invigoration

We, who not deny the animal of our nature
We, who yearn to preserve our liberation
We, who face darkness in our hearts with a solemn fire
We, who aspire to the truth and pursue it's strength

Are we not the undisputed prodigy of warfare
Fearing all the mediocrity that they possess
Should we not hunt the bastards down with our might
Reinforce and claim the throne that is rightfully ours

Consider the god we could be without the grace
Once and for all
Diminish the sub principle and leave it's toxic trace
Once and for all

    General CommentThis song refers to a war between those with religious restiction and those without; namely, Satanists against the rest. Anyone who has read the works of Anton LaVey can see this, especially in these lyrics:

    "We, who not deny the animal of our nature
    We, who yearn to preserve our liberation
    We, who face darkness in our hearts with a solemn fire
    We, who aspire to the truth and pursue it's strength"

    Dimmu Borgir is an awesome band, but this would be one of there more "Genuine" Satanic songs. Others such as "Tormentor of Christian Souls" I think is written purely to shock.

    General CommentI loved this song from the first moment I heard it, even with not being a dark metal fan. This sort of thing always seemed inferior to other metal, but hey, that was before I found Dimmu Borgir, who are far ahead of others, including dark metal stereotypes Cradle of Filth. I personally view it as a song about an army battling against a rebellion, or a heresy whereby a power wants control over all, and those who cling to religion are being wiped out as a result.

    General Commentgreat song, goofy video, but i guess ive come to expect that of black metal, oh well lol, black metal can still beat the shit outta other music.

    Yeah, definately a lot of modern Satanic influence here, pretty much every line after Vortex's vocal bit is ripped from modern satanism (I say modern instead of LaVeyan just because the "Hunt the bastards down" part brings to mind the order of the nine angels more than the COS, a little more extreme form of satanism than LaVey's, ...but then again, killing and death in black metal killing and death are never really considered that extreme within black metal, hehe)

    I liked the instrumental version (the classical one on the 2nd disk) as well, although eradication instincts's was better imo
