Obscura Arcana Mortis: The Demo Years

by Forgotten Tomb

Nightfrost 03:28
I walk again through these darkened paths, as the cold wind blows on my face and the fog creates sinister forms, they guide me in the dark night A night as black as Death An iced hand closes my eyes as the frost surrounds me into its obscure shroud Nightfrost No moon over me this night, only the dark is real now I stand obsessed by the signs, occult symbols carved in the ground of this ancient moor They show me the mysteries of the afterlife, the way to the knowledge Now I must die to see this... Wandering in the lands of Death I know, I've seen beyond Untrodden paths, but only in this life, I walked on them Nightfrost
Nefarious nights, a time so far, ancestral fears and nightmares From the darkened clouds of the past memories of souls without rest... Pray your lord to reach another dawn (The) Darkness takes away our mortal life They' ve come back with these obscure nights The moon appears through the fog which flattens over the bog Lock yourself inside your fragile home close all lights and hope that they don't come Nefarious... Nights Nefarious... Nights I observe sinister moors Through the grip of winter I walk towards the endless dark As legends return to take other lives into their funeral drape Nefarious Nights... "Rediverunt nobis. Tempus est solvere debitum sanguinis. Deum benedictat nos omnes." A funeral procession through the night takes the caskets of the dead to the cemetery They burn their coffins to purify the souls then pray the Lord to be forgiven Population now has payed its dues The cold winds take away the nefarious nights
Let me die alone in darkness, shunned by the light Misanthropic death, ignore the past life No more visions of tomorrow Dreaming the Death, a tomb in the fog A cold tombstone forgotten by everyone Forgotten Tomb Leave me alone Let me follow the path to nothing Through the lands of inhumanity I wander The black candle light has closed, I can see the blackened beauty of Death Forget me, I'll miss myself in the void Forgotten Tomb... I am alone now, only the dark listen to my words Forget me
On the path to darkness, the darkness of these nights Through the fog we're dressed with our black robes Silence... The wolves will lead us towards the place of nightmares... A deserted house stands beyond the ancient cemetery We coven inside the dark place The pale walls of the crypt now are lightened by black candles... The medium begun the invocation... "Invoco animas veterum mortuorum In nomine dilapsorum nobis ostendete verum Volumus ex novo vivere fines vestram. Animae mortuorum audite hanc revocationen, dicete nobis de tenebris que post mortem sunt Nobis revelate horridum abyssum mortis..." We want to know Lugubrious moans comes from the near cemetery Your cryptic voices whisper with the stenching breath of Death... "Redite per clathros vita e post mortem." Tonight the sky is darkened than ever, as tormented souls tell the occult secrets... Obscura Arcana Mortis Morte!
XXX (Outro) 02:56
Let me die alone in darkness Shunned by the light Misanthropic death Ignore the past life No more visions of tomorrow Dreaming the death - A tomb in the fog A cold tombstone Forgotten by everyone FORGOTTEN TOMB Leave me alone - Let me follow the path to nothing Through the Lands of Inhumanity I'll wander The black candle light is dying I can see the blackened beauty of death Forget me - I'll miss myself in the void FORGOTTEN TOMB I am alone now Only the dark listens to my words Forget me
