"Ritual" as written by and A Ghoul Writer....
Tonight we're summoned for a divine cause
Remembrance, no
But for their future loss

This chapel of ritual
Smells of dead human sacrifices
From the altar

Beduins and nomads
Carried through the times
Through pestilences and famines
These ancient scrolls of rhymes

Our fallen angel vexed was banished from the sky
Recite now from the text pray for all to die

This chapel of ritual
Smells of dead human sacrifices
From the altar bed
On this night of ritual
Invoking our master
To procreate the unholy bastard

Our father
Who art in hell unhallowed be thy name
Cursed be the sons and daughters
Of thine nemesis whom are to blame
Thy kingdom come nema

Tonight we summoned for his unholy fiend
Now celebrate the end

This chapel of ritual
Smells of dead human sacrifices
From the altar bed
On this night of ritual
Invoking our master
To procreate the unholy bastard

    My InterpretationAs @timshanks1 so concisely summed it up ... this song is about Satan. The fall and worship of him.

    "Our fallen angel vexed
    Was banished from the sky"

    Describes God banishing Satan (who was an angel).

    "Our father
    Who art in hell
    Unhallowed be thy name
    Cursed be the sons and daughters
    Of thine Nemesis
    Whom are to blame
    Thy kingdom come"

    Describes Hell (Satan's world) and then curses heaven, God and followers, before delivering the line that Satan's realm will rise and rule the land (and skies?) again.

    My InterpretationThis song, as well as Con Clavi Con Dio, very well establishes that this isn't some standard rock or metal album and they aren't just some band, they are agents of Satan come to do his work on earth and they performing a ritual, not a rock show. Really helps set the mood that you're watching/listening to a dark mass.
