From the darkest kaos from beyond this time
I shall free my wings as our souls align
Mortal barriers are falling in crippling time
In the moonlighting darkness, the garden divine
For invoking the dark, and the blood of its Lord
It shall punish the weak with its bestial sword
The innocent blood sacrificed in the night
Within darkness comes rapture in beautiful sight
Feel the midnight's pull
The answers to darkness and dreams in full
For only as eternity unfolds
Lie the secrets within a funeral toll
Slain by the hand too close to see
Prism in their eyes for eternity
Blessedly fading for all to see
Painting a picture of hypocrisy
Fraying at the edges of sanity
Beneath its surface a part of me
Unleash the tyrant from within
For no face can see beneath this opaque mask of deadened time
Image that emerges through the wrath and pain combined
Silken dreams of Avalon where shadows dwell for all time
As a demon I roar
Within the fabric of thoughts
My purpose an anchor
And exhale my spirit into the night air
Stained as I fall beneath my shroud
And my flesh anointing tribute to the proud
In a breath from an everless nightfalll enshadowed thee
Fore I am forever as eternity chants its chivalty
As a silhouette in the night
Not of this world of within sunlight
Fore only as eternity unfolds
Lie the secret within a funeral toll

    General CommentSlaughter of the innocence..
    Hecate is great. But still too lesser black metal. Mayhem and gorgoroth are the best ones. Then dimmu and cradle.
    I mostly respect the bands performance. But hecate is ok i quess. I love the 2-3 voice yelling they use in the songs.
    Pure black metal.

    Pure black metal. That calls people to ban Jesus and the lesser life forms. And get the strong respect that they deserve.

    General Commentcradle didnt sell out you fucking chode....hecate is a good band but they wish they had the sucess and talent of cradle of filth. No one could fuck with them when Gian was playing guitar for them. Midian is the best black metal cd ever!!!!

    General Commentdon't be a sniveling bitch Phillip... Cradle has not sold out. how exactly have they gone mainstream?
    So Thronography wasn't the same as say creulty and the beast or Damnation and a Day, but a new sound is always good too see full potential of the band. i personally like the newer album, (although Midian was the best) in Thornography it has a softer sound to it and alows you to hear more of the orchestra... makes for a better Creepy church music sound :)
