Mightiest am I, but I am not alone in this cosmos of mine. For the black hills consist of black souls, souls that already died one thousand deaths. Behind the stone walls of centuries they breed their black art. Boiling their spells in cauldrons of black gold.
Far up in the mountains, where the rain fall not far, yet the sun cannot reach. The wizards, my servants, summon the souls of macrocosm.
No age will escape my wrath. I travel though time and I return to the future. I gather wisdom now lost. I visit again the eternally ancient caves, before a mighty Emperor thereupon came.
Watching the mortals "discovering" my chronicles, guarded by the old demons, even unknown to me. Once destroyed to feast upon the screaming souls that was destroyed in my future. How many wizards that serve me with evil. I know not. My empires has no limits.
From the never ending mountains black, to the bottom lakes. I am the ruler and has been for eternity's long. My wizards are many, but their essence is mine. Forever there are in the hills in their stone homes of grief. Because I am the spirit of their existence. I am them.

    General CommentI'm not even going to try to explain this one. I believe it's simply an evil fairy tale about an all powerful sorcerer who controls evil wizards who live in the mountains.

    Note of interest: My band does a decent cover of this song. If anyone wants to hear it, the MP3 is located at purestmetal.com/…

    General CommentI think the narrator is supposed to be The Emperor. If you look through the lyrics to this album, they all seem to part of one big folkloric type thing. The idea is that the narrator is the essence in all of the evil sorcerers.

    As for the church burning: Samoth (guitars), along with Euronymous (Mayhem) and Varg Vikernes (Mayhem, Burzum) burned down a church. I think Tchort and Faust were also involved in that, but I'm not sure. (Faust also murdered someone).

    General Commentfaust murdered a gay man because he kept making pases at him, so did someone from dissection (jon?).

    Mortiis wrote the lyrics before he was kicked out of the band.

    General Commenti think its interesting to know that they were all about 18 years old when this album was recorded. amazing, considering its one of the best, if not the best black metal album ever recorded.

    General CommentI thought maybe it had something to do with the Moonshae Trilogy. The second book in the series is called Black Wizards, and the lyrics seem like it could be loosely based on the wizards from the book.
