I really like these lyrics from the song The Gothic Embrace by Draconian so I figured I’d share them here. Astaroth’s part always pumps me up and I play this song to honor the Infernal Divine.
Gothic moon… ablazeth the eventide so sonorous,
Ye solemn of a lovelorn garden of crimson souls.
All true beauty is sad…
But lost within the clenched hands of God.
Lost within the clenched hands of God.
We are like dying embers.
We are fallen leaves.
A sloth wrested of Thy power,
And sealed on embedded stone.
A false righteousness undying under His name,
Forever… Forever in shadow I grieve!
