Infected 08:25
ascend toward the golden light exist beyond the bounds of life lick your lips with the liars tongue and slit your throat to drink the blood gnash your teeth into the flesh for their meat is the holy bread the cold steel of night its frost bitten blade carves into the virgin skull and we shall speak truth nevermore the embers glow behind our backs as gold turns to black bitten by the snake infected with the venom the poison that an apparent choice is given but appearances sustain the breadth of the world appearances sustain the divine word that choice is given the tree of life of all its fruit should be barren but in this age untouched it lies old and rotten the complacent race of man will soon be forgotten they press their teeth into each others flesh while blood drips from their blackened lips and over serpent tongues down the throats of the willing the fruit is rotting in the sun as we all bow to man made gods hell is the pit of despair found in holy houses defiled words spit forth from the mouths of the pestilent flies of discord defy the essence of humanity the vultures circle in the sky as mankind slowly starts to die the rebirth of this world soon is begotten infected by the serpents bite the madness feeds on brittle minds condemned sentenced to this life ascend towards the endless night ascend
In Continuum 07:38
once thought immortal a reign that never ends but forward the arrow points to the future burning at the spead of light in continuum we travel a road covered in blood pushing agains the angry breath of the dead a road of rot and ruin heads and bodies on spikes their haunting black stares trace our steps mouth agape as if to speak but no sound rises beyond their cold blue lips in continuum the heads of fallen kings lie with broken crowns thrones covered in rotten flesh and the putrid stench of death every castle wall turned to dust by the wrath of time mothers hold the skeletons of children in their arms there will be no peace there has never been all shall die in continuum when the past converges with the future and all of time is condensed into one we will speak in the language of the forlorn and forgotten impaled and stuck in the ground lining the road to nowhere
the waters crash ashore and sweep across the land every attempt to inhale is a gargled breath the darkening skies every gust of wind a swing of the reapers scythe our punishment, condemned now bow bow your head and bend your broken necks over the sharpened blade of the reapers scythe there is no blinding light no coming of thee no redemption for a life well lived our corpses rot in line eyes are pulled out from the head and entrails spilled to dirt limbless, lifeless void filled with the chaos of god, death now bow bow your head and bend your broken necks over the sharpened blade of the reapers scythe the pathetic human horde is struck down by the mighty sword and the air is filled with the anguished screams of the tormented and sick you vile worthless rotten things you've been severed from your angel wings and fell from the grace of heaven straight into your graves
have thine eyes fallen upon a dying glory? o thy temptress pierce thine heart with thy poison arrow and fill thee cup with thy sacred blood poureth thy blood over the soil and a tree shall grow and root and limb will bleed life over a barren earth a union of life and death in a consecration of the divine flesh we breath lust our movement shakes the earth as beauty fades away a solemn prayer heard in the wind rustles the grass and trees the winds song will enchant us all as she spreads her legs and the water pours into the parched throat of the earth filling pools of memories of a dying past have thine eyes fallen? fallen upon death? as beauty fades away

A Flourishing Scourge Seattle, Washington

A Flourishing Scourge is an all original progressive blackened death metal outfit hailing from the gloomy metropolis of Seattle, Washington. Inspired by a degrading society and the destructive negligence of man, AFS is a pummeling force of misanthropic visions and apocalyptic consequences while still finding rare, intimate moments of solace and hope amidst the carnage. ... more
