This song was constructed in 2015, and recorded rather spontaneously. Inspired by the History Channel documentary about the Dark Ages, it seemed fitting for the way I perceive things in our world. I had a couple of musical ideas scribbled on Tablature paper as I always do, including the arpeggiated section. Since our Merciless Hammer of Lucifer album, I'd been trying to include these atmospheric, minor key dissonant sounding parts such as in the Title track for that record, and Conquerors of Sodom from the EP. Simon came by to drop off some drum gear at the Plague Pit Productions Studio, and I happened to have the music tablature at hand and we recorded the song in 1 take after a couple of rough run-throughs. The other 9 songs had been recorded at rehearsals in April 2015 with the three of us performing the basic track live with a couple of microphones set up. To complete the recording Herb had to learn the parts and come track the bass in 1 take, which he did. Unfortunately I accidently erased a section of his track while bouncing the tracks one day, and he had to come back and redo them. I felt that the bass wasn't set-up very good, and instead of working on the Bass set-up, we had Herb re-learn the parts to play at different positions from where he'd originally learned them. It was one of the first songs completed, mixed and mastered for a Split that never happened.


Enslaver of the ages
The madness of old enshrined
A spell never broken
A feast for the simpleton

Searching for signs in the chaos
Order in the eyes of the blind

Enemy to wisdom
Impervious beliefs
Plague from the sands
Never-ending cancer

Denying the real – Age of ignorance
Monstrous edifice built of delusion
Age of ignorance

Cowering in fear
Of the crushing despair
Wisdom in flames
Silence the blasphemies

Put them to death
