Awaken, ruinous fiend of early generations.
Your rotting corpse is restored.
Straighten your limbs, brush off the dust,
withered bandages restrain you no more.
Severed heads accent the gates,
bones emerge from the sands, proof of your reign remains.
I, your Liege, now command your rule again.
The sun burns through the skin, boiling vital organs within.
But the god's can't destroy my cursed, blackened heart.
Appeasing the thirst of the damned, mocking the praised ones.
The sand soaks the blood, the blood flows like wine,
send death from above.
Locusts and famine engulfing your race, my savagery knows no end.
At the price of all your lives, I destroy your kind, death by my hand.
Sands blowing across cursed lands will consume the evidence of your ancient existence.
The Earth is now black from the torment I have set upon it.
All shall bow, serve, and praise thy name

    General CommentPortraying Akhenaten of being some sort of self aware harbinger of death?

    Song MeaningIt's about the life of Akhenaten. Basically Akhenaten rising from the dead and taking over and what would happen if it were to happen.

    General CommentAkhenaten wanted to change the Egyptian religion and have there only be one main god, Aten. The people did not accept it and later after his death thought of him as an enemy. Maybe this song is showing how the Egyptians felt about him as a pharaoh.

    "mocking the praised ones" could show how Akhenaten believed that the other gods were not important as to Aten.

    Song MeaningThe god that Akhenaten believed in was named Aten. This song, to me, seems like Aten is in fact the god and he raises Akhenaten from the dead and destroying the non believers. The lyrics are Aten talking in first person (and maybe perhaps through Akenaten at some points). The name of the song "Cursing Akenaten" can be easily misread. Akenaten is not being "cursed" but is the one "cursing" by bringing plague and famine.
