Captivating with sadistic intentions to exalt the carrion
Holding onto faith like it would help me anyway
Up on my feet, vehemence takes over as I pave the way to anatomical feasts
Severing the ties I once endured to understand why it is that I crave the dead
Going by my knowledge of popular culture
I find a sense in malpracticing the common ways
Wallowing in claret, I long for such salvation
For when I'm through, I shall wear your pride upon my lips
Songs of the dead will eternally be chanted
Before sepulture, I must purloin the genitalia
I must find pleasure when you're gone
An injection of sodium thiopental applied
Your eyes are getting heavy now, I smell your fear
Delusions and paranoia are setting in
Control in my hands, I now shall purge
With the saw I maim, by the saw I live
Inhaling fumes of the putrid festered funk
As I drain the throbbing cysts from the gangrenous vagina
The mordant reek is overtaking every inhalation
The nausea is overwhelming, I stop to heave
Brought forth are my confessions to the dead
As the lies coincide with vitriolic clues
We all will spread disease
We're all deceased
Carved in your face, the sacrilegious rites
These words bring truth to what was foretold
Corpses and bile will reconcile
The rumors of this forensic plague
By these words I am one with the dead
And with this I've claimed the one which I'm wed
Until death do us part, we'll rot hand in hand

    General CommentThe title track is opened with a series hellish, guttural growls that are pretty well extended. Double bass and down tuned riffing fills your skull. Vocalist Phil Bozeman lower end vocal delivery is deep and evil. He accompanies them with higher pitched screams completing an impressive range. The sound of this first song is immense — having three guitarist certainly helps in that cause.

    Song Meaning"The Somatic Defilement is a concept album "based" on Jack The Ripper. Which a lot is fairy tale songs."

    The Somatic Defilement - "This song is a fabrication of the mind of Jack The Ripper. This song puts the work of him with the work of many serial killers. They crave power through the dead."

    General CommentIt's basically just about tourture and having sex with a corpse, and how he "love" the dead
    "Severing the ties I once endured to understand why it is that I crave the dead"
    then he has "Holding onto faith like it would help me anyway"
    maybe he still believes in faith even though he knows it won't help him?

    General Comment3:21 til the end.... best 1:58 of the song...

    Carved in your face, the sacrilegious rites
    These words bring truth to what was foretold
    Corpses and bile will reconcile
    The rumors of this forensic plague
    By these words I am one with the dead
    And with this I've claimed the one which I'm wed
    Until death do us part, we'll rot hand in hand
