"A Succubus In Rapture" as written by and Stian Tomt/kopperud Thoresen....
Illness and plagues, torture and blight
Is what she brings
Mocking holy standards, deceiving feeble fools
Is what she loves
Granted with powers, gifted with magic
Watching the world through raven eyes

Damned woman mischievous whore
Heretic princess
Devil's own

Her seductive elegance
Excites your weak flesh
Her diabolical beauty
Enchants your bewildered mind

You damn woman
You mischievous whore
You heretic princess
You are Devil's own

A serenade made out of black magic
She has learned to set souls afire
And makes sure that you never
Will leave it's trance
Her diabolical beauty
Enchants your bewildered mind

    General Commentthese lyrics, like most "black metal" lyrics, can be translated, roughly, into "i am afraid of girls."

    truth.

    General CommentThis is for all those guys who have been tricked into wanting a woman and never getting anything from it. She just keeps leading him on and on and on, and he follows. But she never lets him reach his goal,

    She has learned to set souls afire
    And makes sure that you never
    Will leave it's trance"

    Bitches.

    General CommentThis is by far my favorite dimmu song. Maybe. Dimmu Borgir is my favorite band really, and so meh. In any case, this song makes me laugh, sometimes I think they all got did in by some girl... and then you might throw in some other way like he was rather enticed by the actual mere thought of darkness... But, Big woody above me here, explains the third idea the best.. with which he is just led on and on... she teases him endlessly... And just never lets him do what he intends to do.

    General CommentI could be wrong about this, but I think a succubus is actually a demon that appears as a woman and does everything stated above.

    General CommentNo you're not wrong. And to all others over here: You are ignorant fools. Do you really think a black metal band would write a song about their crush in some girl!?! They could... but then they wouldn't be black metal anymore, now would they? So, google a "sucubus" and get some facts before you start commenting the subject... othervise you end up writing nonsense comments like those.

    P.S.
    to: raistlinmajere i can't belive you actually wrote that, yes like most of my friends i also listen to black metal, and we don't have any fear of girls or something like this. I'll ask you something; are you a girl? if you are, that explains a lot.. if you aren't then how a big dumbasss you have to be to write something like that.

    Hope i didn't offend anybody here (too)much ; )

    General CommentI can agree with unholy on his comment, a black metal band would not be talking about romantic relationships. This is Dimmu Borgir, not the Fagstreet boys.

    General CommentThis song reminds me of the girl I had an affair with, she was great, but in the end she seemed to be able to grasp something deeper, leaving me in a trance. Great song. Watch out for those Succubus among us...

    General CommentThead Necromancy time!
    Comments above are imho juvenile in perspective. This song represents the core of attraction by a woman and the power it's magic can have over a man. The song's beauty and lyrics dives right into the feeling of being enchanted and the duality of it all. It can destroy lives and lead men into self-destruction, doing so with a smile and open eyes..
    Fantastic lyrics that probably rise above the initial meaning by the author. Real art in my opinion!
