I am the god of gods
Master of the arts
I desecrate the chaste
Writhe in the flesh

Blasphemy

Chant the blasphemy
Mockery of the messiah
We curse the holy ghost
Enslaver of the weak
God of lies and greed
God of hypocrisy
We laugh at your bastard child
No god shall come before me

Blaspheme the ghost
Blaspheme the ghost
Blaspheme the ghost
Blasphemy of the holy ghost

Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the law
Rebel against the church
Drink from the chalice of blasphemy
Rise up against the enslaver

    General Commentehem queefporn, your'e an idiot

    bottom line, killswitch engage sucks, your'e a scene fag who saw slayer at mayhem fest last year looked them up and probably heard of other overated death metal bands like whata ya know, death and obituary.

    dont compare morbid angel to killswitch at all go listen to some breakdowns this is to brutal for your ears

    General CommentThis song truly lives up to it's title. To Blaspheme the Holy Ghost is the one sin you cannot be forgiven for (As far as I can tell).

    It's also the only song I know of that blasphemes the Holy Ghost, the sentiment of irreversable damnation scares the shit out of a lot of Aethiests.

    Complete with the quote from Aleister Crowley's Book of the Law, this is a truly Theleman, if not Satanic Song.

    Aside from it's content, its got a great sound. Even if it was done in 1989.

    General Comment..., this has some of the best lyrics for a song, it is true if you are a pure anti-christ too, but i understand their hatred

    General CommentWhoa....
    Zanarath is right, the bible (I can't remember where) states that Blasphemy against the Holy Spirit is the ultimate sin, and the only one for which there is no forgiveness. To be honest, while I listen to way heavier shit than this, this song still kind of freaks me out not the music or the vocals (both seem kind of gay and silly) it's just the concept, it's difficult to think that someone would actually go this far...

    General Commentwhoa hold on a sec guiffporn, this is a fucking SONG. who the fuck said that they actually do this shit? and quit trying to sound tough and cool "i listen to way heavier shit than this." yeah right, limp bizkit and slipknot don't count.

    anyway, that being said, this song kicks ass. Pete Sandoval absolutely slaughters his drum set on this song.

    the lyrics are not for the weak (that means you MTV fans)

    General CommentWhats your problem dude? I'm not trying to sound "tough and cool" Limp Bizkit? are you joking? I listen to bands like Slayer, Converge, Killswitch Engage,lamb of God, God Forbid, Death and Obituary (among others). I was just making a point, that it's the concept that makes this song heavy for me, not the music.

    General CommentGod Forbid, Killswitch Engage, and Converge are all part of this new vomit scene Metalcore which is being passed off as metal and being played alongside bands like Obituary, Suffocation, etc. Those aforementioned bands sing of emo bullsh*t and veganism, not blasphemy. Morbid Angel is ten times as heavier and evil than the mess you mentioned, minus Slayer, Obituary, and Death.

    General CommentOk, first off, Converge are Hardcore.
    I really don't give a shit if a band is evil or not, I listen to the bands I listen to, because they make good music. Killswitch Engage are producing some of the best heavy metal for years, and their song lyrics are deep, the end of the world, spirituality and the death of loved ones, being just a few of the topics covered in their songs.

    Disregarding a band because their lyrics are not blasphemous is fucking stupid, and suggests that you are less interested in good music and more in trying to look evil and intense, which quite frankly is pathetic.

    General CommentIt should only matter if the song sounds good to the listener. I don't see the point in subgenres.

    And for the record, Trey Azagthoth is a practicing Satanist (similar to angelfire.com/ny5/dvera/ ), but they add semi-Lovecraft (actually Simon-Necronomicon) themes to some of their songs.

    General CommentMorbid Angel Rulez, quiffgay doesn't understand a thing about metal, because he doesn't listen to it... just see what he says: "I listen to way heavier shit than this", like killswitch engange, god forbid and all that pseudo-metal shit.. The only heavy band he listens to is Fat Family, now that's a HEAVY band.
