Curse you all men whose coil is strong. I recognise the sparrow's heart, beneath the theatre of misery. Disbelievers shalt by dawn be forced to forever mourn.
Curse you all men that resent my empire. 'Cause I have risen again, at war this time. The truth I speak is your decease. My word is your defeat.
And thou shalt not be able to hide anymore. The prophecy will conquer at last your sense of reality, with mission to kill the theatre of misery.
He has risen again, armed with the source of sin. And as humans shalt fade, he shalt inherit their strength.
Men of the damned, you will reluctantly secure His eternal victory.
Yes, you are indeed the few; I am the one.

    General CommentEmperor is very paganistic and deep in the occult. Ddadutta, you have no f***ing idea what you're talking about.
    Count Grim, read it again. They specifically talk about one thing that is marked with sin and will conquor the earth. That is Satan who was cast into an abyss in Revelations of the Bible.
    Satanswizard has it close. The Christian genocide is what he calls it, but it is Satan putting humanity in chaos and disorder, causing misery. The Christians will fight back, but will be tempted more than ever to join Satan and Satan's forces.

    General CommentThey are pagan as hell, but not satanic.
    They simply use antichristian and occult imagery.
    We all know that only a few truly religiously satanic bands exist, among them Gorgoroth.

    Also these lyrics appear to be simply misanthropistic and nihilstic, not religiously inclined.

    General Commentjust thought i'd chime in -
    it's black metal. It doesn't have to BE anything.

    also, i think it's really funny that the advertisements are all about jesus and god, at least for me.

    General CommentActually, you morons, Ihsahn is extremely Satanic. He has his own brand of Satanism thouh he was interested in LaVeyan Satanism when he was younger.

    Read "Lords Of Chaos". There's a long interview with Ihsahn where he says all of this for himself. Emperor aren't pagans and never were; Burzum and Enslaved are pagan bands, but Emperor and other bands like Dissection are actually Satanic.

    This, of course, is not a bad thing. Unless you're a hardcore Christian.

    General CommentActually, Ihsahn used to be a Satanist, but he no longer is. In the documentary "Metal: A Headbanger's Journey," Ihsahn says something to the effect of:

    "I don't consider myself a Satanist anymore, and I haven't for quite some time. I've moved way beyond that."

    To me he's realized that religion, in any form, isn't necessary, and that we as humans have the power to create change in the universe without a dogma to back us up.

    As for the song, it is written to where it sounds as if it is about Satan coming to rule the earth, but since Satanists (for the most part) don't believe that Satan really exists, it is more than likely a symbolic reference to Ihsahn himself, or for anyone who follows their own will, especially those which go against society's norm.
