We, the Creatures of the Night, wish to share this Opus (work) with those who truly believe there is something hidden behind
the secrets of The Light Bringer.
After many years of studying and performing The Dragon's Art and passing the first and second alchemic process ("Caput Mortem" and The "Red Dragon"), I was resurrected from the Symbol of Death and Putrefaction (the experience of the purest love far beyond perversion). The essence of this is manifested in 'Exaltation of Wisdom' as we have foreseen.
We are only focusing on the enlightening of all followers of darkness who are expecting not just to listen to Black Metal music, but who are searching in the absence for the discovering of the approaching Mysterious Light that hides in the blackness and slowly grows inside us.
In this Book which we henceforth call The Dragon's Art, you might find the mysteries behind the lyrics which were created under strict development of "Gnosis - Logia" to bring you some keys that (depending on you) may complete the "Logia - Sophia" process.
This is the quintessence of the Tree of Life which begins by the gates of Death towards the Ways of Shadows. The pure Darkness that was in the beginning and will be at the end...
One by one you will discover in our Writings, Symbols and Drawings, the magical process of the Human Mind to become a superior being and we are offering this to those who really have eyes to see and ears to hear.
But the theory is not enough...

Track Name: Like the Serpent
Like The Serpent.

Blessed are those Spirits from the Air
Who came unto Me to Posses my Mind…
So that I could write these Lines.
Black is the Lodge (Logia) which undress “The Magdalene“ (Sophia)
Highly pure is the most precious Blood that we drink from.
Ghastly are the Wings that appear from the Shadows of the Night
Ghostly are the Hands which seek the Wise
Because there is no Innocence
In the Holy Kingdom of Unknowable Light,
There is no Law ruling the Earth
And no Sin that does not claim Redemption.
Children being Sacrificed to the Ancient Gods…
Brothers and Sisters having Sex in the Sight of the Father
Both Male and Female united in Blood Ecstasies
Under the Purple Candlelight
“The Trial By Fire“
When the Grail of Three awaits to be filled in Cold Gloom
As in the Oldest Times
And the Christ be the Serpent of the Beginning
And the Angel of Light breathes the Dust of Men
At the End of the World,
You Shall See…
And Behold thy Horror!
Witness Thy Beauty after it burns your eyes.
There is no Good and Evil,
But the Quest for Light that will set us Free!
Darkness shall finally overcome the Sun and Peace finally be unto you…
Fools those who pretend to be Mighty by accepting the Law of Men.
Fools those who follow God and no Other.
Fools those who search in the Light of Violence
And feed themselves with Fear and Superstition.
Fools those who Keep the Faith in Dead Idols
Or trust the Path of “Salvation“.
Oh Yes! Fools all those who have Faith without Wisdom.
And Fools all those who follow the Lamb of God!
When They Could Be Wise…
Like The Serpent!!!

The Final Breath Of Mankind
Track Name: Perpetual Eclipse Stigmata
Perpetual Eclipse Stigmata

Dragons shall breathe Fire upon Humanity
When the Tree of Life comes unto this World
The Sun shall be Blackened by the Moon as it never been done before
Take us Oh Lord!
…We do not need this anymore!
We seek the Cosmic Belt and the Last Ray taking Our Flesh
Listen to the Voice of Chaos
Follow the Call of Nothingness
Close your eyes and witness the pure Fright without fear
Feel the Cold of Darkness
Take away your Soul… Spit upon the Face of “God“.
Thy Will Be Done.
Prayers of Plague emerging from the Grey Smoke
Chanting True Blasphemous Choirs.
Three white dressed girls walking in Cataleptic Trance
Old bones burning slowly inside the Trapezoidal Coffin.
Witness the Zenith of Dome like the Dead lying down
Kiss of Innocence… Embrace the Never ending Madness
Blood dripping into the Mouth of the Impure
Dressed in Scarlet… Feed the Horror & Sadness
Raise the hands and Appoint the Stars
Behold the Chalice filled from the Snake’s Tongue
Here is the Poison Of Ecstasy for the Chosen Ones
Don’t resist the True Call from Heaven
Sing the Sacred Unholy Songs.
Black Smoke is emerging Now
And the Prayers of Plague Arise!
Track Name: The Final Breath of Mankind
The Final Breath Of Mankind

“Trembling into the Infinite Dark Abyss
I took inspiration from You - Star Shadow“

The Red Flame is in my Chest.

I saw a Mother emerging from the Blackest Sea
Fishlike belly and the most precious face
White empty eyes as a Cave of Ice…
Black hair like a Million of Worms
And whispering as deep as a Thousand Nights.
U – an
I saw a Huge White Worm
Crawling from the Hole Profound
Long arms appointing the Sky
Horrid blood red eyes
A pale face without form and Silver jewellery
His voice was a Pestilent wind full of Sadness.
A – nu
I saw a girl like a bird falling from the Sky
With burning wings naked like a Full Moon Winter
A crowned serpent from each breast
Radiating eyes and mouth
Her voice was a Terrifying Scream
Causing Death and Extinction.
I saw a boy playing a Glass Trumpet
He came from the Fire Mud
Black smoking eyes and mouth
Red body and a Flame on his head
He is the Spirit and his voice was bright and Strong
As an Explosion of a Blue Sun.

The Purple Flame is in my Forehead.
Track Name: Mystery of the Fallen
Mystery Of The Fallen

Incense of Cracked Human Bones and a Glass of Human Blood
Visions of the Cranial Cave and a Lightning into Emptiness
Voe Bor Ekna Ashtar…
Speak Thy Name… Enma Al!
Hypnotised by the Blue Flame
Blinded by a Shadow from the Purple Stone
It is time to Renounce yourself
If Enlightened you wish to be
As those who seek entry here.
Boil your mind in Coldness inside the Tunnel
See yourself flying over the Fog.
Use your eye (The Eye) and see “Him“ watching you.
Sleep and hear “His“ voice after a Restless Nightmare
Feel His hand touching your head…
-Follow the Words of the Serpent Priests-
-Crawl on your belly as the Ancient Ones-
Is not this the Real Magick?
The true sense of the Symbolism and Allegory
Here is the Royal Art and the Mystery of All Mysteries.
The Throne awaits until the Final Triumph is Complete!
“May the Spirit of this skull (The Skull of the World)
Raise against you if you betray the Path of the Only Salvation“
Now Dress the Scarlet Diamond…
Don’t see Below
Don’t follow the Illusion
Sign your Pact without return
And you will see “Them“ while travelling
Beyond the Stars.
Track Name: Light Beyond the Obscure
Light Beyond The Obscure

Millions of Souls waiting at the Giant Gate of Light
In this Temple of Sorrow
No Star and Moon shines anymore
Just the Rays of the Afterlife blinding Us.
Like the Most Terrifying Beast,
The Angel of Perdition opens his mouth
In this Solemn Moment when We all in Spirit
Will receive the Sacred Eternal Flame.
An Oracle between this World and the Other…
Now when the Veil falls we see the Truth
And Destroy Our Enemy!
The Only Hell was ever here!
Peace is the Absolute Darkness
Which came before this Light
But the True Light lies far beyond the Dying Sun
There is no Form, no Matter, no Time, no Pain, no Death.
The Endless Hole of Nothingness
Devours all False Light shinning in Space.
Darkness is patient and will finally embrace the Whole Creation.
The Mouth of “Evil“ swallows all Human Souls
Smashing all your Gods and taking away the sense of your Life
But the Unknown Sparkle Cannot Die!
And when your Fall is approaching
They shall Cast you Down…
If you are not able to follow the Left Hand Path.
Knowledge is the Key… Wisdom is the Gateway…
Release your Spirit and join Us.
Track Name: The White Priestcraft
The White Priestcraft

Holy, Holy, Holy is the Line of Cain!
Sacred is the Legacy of the Serpent.
Lift up your arms if you are Worthy to witness the Fallen Cross
Break your senses while the Black Angels
Guide you into the Path of Suffering
There is nothing but Pain… It is just the Beginning.
The Angel of Death Commands you to Suffer…
He is The Lord your God.

When the Cross is raised, all Brethren shall Obey Thy Wishes
And all the Chosen Ones might Perish before Daring to see Thy Face
Because there is no Heaven without Hell…
No Magick without Pain
And no Light without Darkness to Shine into it,
There is no Beginning without End
And no Ending without a Beginning.

Now when the Cross has fallen
There is nothing but Eternal Peace… So it shall be at the End.
As the Light of Agitation has been Eclipsed by the Absolute Emptiness.
There is no Life without Death and no Death without Eternity.
And as I was on the Cross and saw the Light
In The Illustrious Ordo Scio…
There is no need of eyes in the Total Absence
And nor a body to Fly Towards the Unknown…

All Hail Lucifer!

Only He is The Way…
“And the Light Shineth in Darkness
And the Darkness Comprehended not“
“Maher Shalal Hash Baz“
Sacred is the Legacy of the Serpent
Holy is the Line of Cain.
