As the serpent swells with the stormy seas, The waves explode like a wrathful volcano Oh Six-headed Dragon from the depths beneath, Rise up, rip apart the flesh of a thousand sailors Scylla and Charybdis Curse you Circe Mighty Sorceress With your hand, You poisoned the beauty Lured with the smell of human blood, Dancing upon the black waters Shakes terror and awe Malicious charm, impenetrable skin Grope and pile, unearthly flood Towering high, in rage she stood Feared but not admired. Curse you Circe Mighty Sorceress With your hand, You poisoned the beauty Creator of Horror Bringer of misery You transformed a Nymph Into.... Scylla Scylla and Charybdis As the whirlpool opens like a hazardous feast The waters are swallowed into a black abyss Α hideous bladder of a monster, What an uncontrollable thirst for the sea. Faithful daughter, untrusted niece How many lands did you yearn to win? Everyday, three times a day Sucking tones of sea, swallowing passing ships King of Gods Oh Powerful Zeus How much rage Can you unleash for the fools? Thunder God Destroyer of Titans, You transformed a naiad Into.... Charybdis Scylla and Charybdis

Mardyakhor 06:33
Mardyakhor In ancient times had given birth Great Man Eater From the deepest bowels of the Earth Great Man Eater None more fearsome than the Manticore. Spits poison blood and stops men's hearts. Face of human being A triple row full of teeth Lion's Blood-red body With a voice that rips Mardyakhor - Mardyakhor Tail whipping, toxic darts Great Man Eater A hybrid of scorpion with man Great Man Eater Trailing the pungent smell of decay Great Man Eater Terrifying Persian Beast Great Man Eater None more fearsome than the Manticore. Spits poison blood and stops men's hearts. Faster than a thousand winds yearning for human bones Trumpet voiced, with eagle wings So fearless Mardyakhor – Mardyakhor Horrid roars Strong and tall pierced by bows Fearsome! Hermetic broods Ghastly wounds Guardian of catafalques Manticore! With blood of goats and blood of steers bound with cords Monstrous Schism Hideous breath abnormal strength unleashed beast Manticore!

Trojan Desolation (free) 07:14
The gift that shook the gods And led to the greatest conflict Of those ancient times Bloody siege of belligerence Desperation amid survival All cunning used to breach the citadel Resistance for a woeful decade And yet at last the gates were opened And death streamed into the city of Troy Armed Achaeans in the streets Trojans slaughtered in cold blood The cold shock of sudden death And silence reigned over all The war has been lost Bloodied corpses strewn Citadel in ruins Desolation of a people That bloody nightmare flickering Steel and fire alight Cutting through the bodies Toppling the gods from plinths Ungodly desecration Temple raped at the guardian’s feet Profanation of the sacred Torn out all sanctity Women sacrificed Infants thrown to death An ancient dynasty Slaughtered Piercing cries cleave the air Misery incarnate Mourners double up Wretched howling forms Into bonds as slaves Existence a nightmare Denied burial rites Noble city dies Great walls that stood Majestic kings who reigned The glory of temples where we looked skywards Bloodlines that ran centuries Legends built in stone The city whose life runs through our bones Desecrated by fire and death Raped and brutalized Last survivors sold as flesh Hear this last lament

Spawned by wrathful castration Born in a burst of blood They who are endless They who embody jealous rage They of vengeful destruction In chthonic shades Dwell the Furies Wreaking vengeance on men Swearers of false oaths Hounding culprits By bloody scourge The ceaseless search For just retribution They of twisted form Eyes all agape On wings of filth Like vengeful arrows From chthonic shades Burst the Furies Wreaking vengeance on men Swearers of false oaths Relentless persecutors Fatal end inviolable From below the Earth Infernal eagle deities Divine vengeance on blackened wings Hunger to repay the atrocity Matricide gone unpunished Torment the perpetrator Declaration of the goddess Divine justice on blackened wings Glory of pursuit From the chthonic depths Burst the terrible Furies Grasping tooth and nail For vengeance at all costs Charged as protectors With souls of desecrators Ripping tooth and nail Death to all false oaths

From the Titan of the sea Of massive limb and strength Polyphemus the Cyclops Enemy of men Landed here from merciless ocean On the rocky shore we crawled Starved and thirsting, grown haggard Our journey never ends A dim cave espied A refuge from the blazing sun Victuals and water To sustain our weariness Great shadow filled the door A beast of human form Single staring eye in his forehead With crashing step he strode Striking terror in brave hearts Heaved a boulder across the cave And devoured two comrades The sound of crunching bone Blood spurting from mouths Macerated features Inhospitable cannibal Each night kept prisoner Each day the fear of being eaten alive Polyphemus the Cyclops Devourer of men Human stench filled the cave Polyphemus the Cyclops Devourer of men The slop of organs in the dirt Beaten asleep by fumes of wine In pool of putrid blood he slumbered Fire-hardened stake our ploy Ten men to lift the weapon And in the night as he slept Plunged into his awful eye The great monster roared in pain Sightless with dark foaming blood Thrashing out with rage Bellowing to the mountains: “I am Polyphemus who you blind Son of Poseidon the Titan By all my force and strength I will be your death” In mortal fear we cowered The longest night in that cave of rotten blood When daylight dawned pale The blinded Cyclops arose In agony counted precious rams As they passed the cave mouth Seething with humiliation Yet seeing not the truth Of every man passing him Concealed beneath the rams Sought the cruel ocean again And casting off from shore Cast a yell upon the wind: “We are the legend who took revenge On the devourer of men” With inhuman strength He hurled a boulder and roared: “Polyphemus, son of Poseidon Lays a curse on thee”

Where five rivers run Into an abyss of perdition Souls flow forever downstream The tongue bears a coin Payment for a final journey Towards the realm of Hades Acheron of sorrow Cocytus of lamentation Phlegethon of fire Lethe’s oblivion, hate of the Styx Descending into Tartarus Great dungeon of torment Primordial entity Nine days below the Earth Sisyphus the guest-slayer Incestuous seducer Trapped Thanatos in his own chains Death on Earth was stalled Threatened to submission Amidst improper burial Punished in eternity Struggling up mountain paths Straining at a boulder Eternal frustration Suffering in the depths With no friend to hear their cries Bound and strapped to the rocks As vultures feast inside Tantalized by hanging fruit Pure water recedes with thirst Lashed on a burning wheel Misery for all time Mysteries of godly justice Meted out eternally Titans banished and trapped A void that breathes and never dies Tartarus for incurable sinners Destined to rot in cognizance Shades of heroes wander despondent In greying fields of listless Asphodel Isle of blessed Elysium Where the good of heart will dwell Hecate stands at the crossroads Where three roads diverge Drink of Lethe all ye deceased And erase all knowledge of life Traipse your way to the crossroad Where three roads diverge

Twenty years’ wait For a glorious return Nine dozen men arrayed in gluttony Feeding on a broken household Plotting an adultery absurd Indolence and avarice Weaving a funeral shroud Quick-witted duplicity Daily inventions of tact Nocturnal unravelling Loose lips spill the secret And the time has come A strange man enters the house Abused in his own home Filthy beggar met with jeers Abased and tormented But now the time has come Penelope weaves another spell Lays a challenge down for all: “Take my husband’s bow and shoot Twelve axe heads to my heart” Each suitor in turn Strung the formidable bow Cut his hands on the strings And shaking with strength, failed That strange man stepped forward Strung the huge bow with ease Wondrous strength tightened strings And through twelve axe heads shot Eyes gleaming in furious victory Turned the bow on nine dozen men Arrows rained like burning fire Piercing callous hearts Chaos rampant in the great hall Massacre of unfaithful lies With brute force he declares The master has come home Twenty years’ wait For a glorious return
