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.

Track Name: Valar Morghulis
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.
Track Name: Catharsis
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

verse:
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

repeat verse
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

repeat verse

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
Track Name: Hammerite
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
Track Name: 't Schrickelik Tempeest
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
Track Name: Satan's Smile
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

verse:
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

verse:
Reason stands trial
In the new Dark Ages
And shining bright
is satan's smile

Kill, maim, and burn
A bloodgod glorified
