The night was dark, moon was full,
Fog was thick, the air was cool
The scene was set without regret,
All that come shall not forget
They gathered here and all did follow,
To greet the child of no tomorrow,
To see the speed of life and death
To feel the strength of Satan’s breath,
It happens every hundred years,
When mortals choose their strength in fear
They’ll sacrifice a newborn child
Bred to die all the while
Friday’s child will die at birth,
A test of faith to prove their worth
They conjure Satan to bring him higher
The infant screams while bathing in fire
The Mass of Hoods that make the crowd close to death
Chants get loud… The witch is cast into labor…
She pleads but nothing can save her
Sound of birth – hear it cry,
Soaked in blood – ready to die
Altar of Fire burning hot
This is Hell, heaven is naught
Feel the fire, hear the call,
The sickness of Satan fills them all
Watch the savior take his final fall!

Touching on moments of death-metal, grind, thrash and speed ‘Ritually Abused’ is the ultimate document of a metal band that ‘shoulda been huge’! ... more
