Valar morghulis / death will come for all No craft, no artifice / can stop the destined pall Death brings deliverance / mercy to the slave It restores the balance / no masters in the grave verse: The faceless men / their names forsaken a chthonic cult of assassins / devoted to death's transformation Valar dohaeris / serve the many-faced god Killing as catharsis / worshipping through blood Bestow the gift of death / a fatal sacrament To expel one's breath / is benevolent repeat verse Valar morghulis / All men must die Valar dohaeris / All men must serve Every death, every cut / every welling of blood is an act of worship / to Him of Many Faces Only death can pay for life.

Now, with your eyes adjusted to the dim light in the club You perceive the bar, get a drink, check the merch, hope the sound guy will speed up This is your life, it's ending one moment at a time Pogo, skank, or stage dive - all dancing is sublime Circle pit and wall of death, you get knocked off your feet The taste of blood and sweat, catharsis is complete Ear-splitting and hot as hell / The toxic waltz is fierce Moshing and slamming and breaking necks / while cries of rage through heavy riffs pierce Raise your horns and scream along / Forget about all daily shit Full of adrenaline and testosterone, you're ready to join the pit This is your life, it's ending one moment at a time Pogo, skank, or stage dive - all dancing is sublime Circle pit and wall of death, you get knocked off your feet The taste of blood and sweat, catharsis is complete Dive in and mosh it up / Fuck bullies with their flying kicks When someone's down you lift him up / No need for dirty tricks This is good clean violent fun / the best you've ever had If you ain’t been there, you won’t understand / Bonding by thrashing like mad

This is a periodic tale of strength and stainless glory at war with time and entropy forged from flames to prevail Blood coloured corrosion Compounds intrude like a Trojan These reactionary elements must come to a grinding halt Their covert assault is a ceaseless imminence The united forces of water and air infiltrate the army of zinc phosphate to impair Resist the rust - Hammerite The alkyd arms convert decay - Hammerite It shields from harms The tables have turned, advantage now reversed Blood coloured corrosion Compounds intrude like a Trojan now an idle - feat This is not about metalcore Hammerite It's all about metalcare Hammerite

Zie hoe de dom tot de hemel reikt onaantastbaar over het volk uitkijkt Duizend jaar fundering het trotse symbool van vrome verering Gegeseld door het schrickelik tempeest Tot die fatale dag, als hitte broeit een zomerbries tot tornado uitgroeit Het godshuis in minuten geveld door het meedogenloze stormgeweld De doden verpletterd, de domkerk vernield, Utrecht ontzield Gegeseld door het schrickelik tempeest straffe gods of teken van het beest? Gegeseld door het schrickelik tempeest straffe gods of teken van het beest? Anderhalve eeuw stilte na de storm de desolate puinhoop is enorm

Progress fades The end of the line A new creed Cruelty enshrined (Infidels and) gentiles make bulging graves When limbs dissolve Stack 'em on piles Reason stands trial in the new Dark Ages And shining bright is satan's smile Kill, maim, and burn A bloodgod glorified See the smirk of saints Dialogue denied Pungent fumes Scorched earth policy Heartless horrors Epitome of doom Reason stands trial in the new Dark Ages And shining bright is satan's smile Kill, maim, and burn A bloodgod glorified Dialogue denied

about

Five brand new tracks were recorded and mixed by Marieke Koedijk, Arnout Leene and Folkert van Blom at Mass Audio Studio in the Netherlands, and mastered by Grammy nominated engineer Jacob Hansen (Aborted, Mercenary, Volbeat, Pestilence, etc) in Denmark.

The artwork, created by Lisa Röttjers, depicts ‘t Schrickelik Tempeest’, meaning 'the horrible tempest' in old Dutch. It refers to the song with the same title and lyrics about the violent storm of August 1, 1674 that hit the episcopal cathedral in the band’s hometown and turned it into ruins.
