Gone astray Numb and blind Within voracious paths Like it would be a matter of life and death Insatiable greed Just more and more feeding the fire The fire of the cult Feast for the Pigs Buttress for the shrine Bow before the golden serpent Of the leading cult Hail the shimmering wealth Ascendance into slavery Pressure, greed and guilt envy, malevolence and leeriness backstabbing for more silver and gold Leaders among the Leadingless Clinging to the ladders Enunciators of prosperity The prophets of annihilation Lifeless rotting Creeping to the shrine To worship and give yourself away To the refulgent demon feeding the fire The fire of the cult Feast for the Pigs Buttress for the shrine Bow before the golden serpent Of the leading cult Hail the shimmering wealth Ascendance into slavery a gilded cenotaph Forever… Slaves of a lie Of Meaningless numbers Bound in silver chains slobbering for more Though shall bath in fluid gold Your arrogant greed Shall be your grave Though shall bath in fluid gold Your arrogant greed Shall be your grave Forever… a gilded cenotaph

A sudden awakening My eyes wide shut whispering, shouting in foreign tongues speaking of horror torture and pain of all the thousand times I killed and died before hunters are chasing me sanguinary spectacle hidden behind their masks faceless skin, ancient specter trying to run away but I´m scared stiff There is No way out The ground is gone I´m Endlessly falling Into absolutely nothing Lost in time and space The Glittering light Is blinding me Surrounded by darkness eaten by infinity When night embraces me I meet my fate My eyelids close and I enter the gate Obscure divinations Blood-curdling memories Shadows from the past Bring forth my nemesis these are my nights I AM stuck in an infinite loop But when I mentally accept and take My rightful punishment I will be done with The world of nightmares And I will forever rest In peaceful sleep I´m screaming angrily Trying to express myself But im unable to speak And when I look down on me There is Viscous blood Along my lips and chin and every single tooth in my mouth is crumbling I hear Suspicious noise Oppressive feeling is rising Someone is there The door opens I stare into muzzle flash And time starts to freeze When night embraces me I meet my fate My eyelids close and I enter the gate Obscure divinations Blood-curdling memories Shadows from the past Bring forth my nemesis When night embraces me I meet my fate My eyelids close and I enter the gate proud and confident I welcome my dreams When night embraces me there are no more bloody screams

Prayer 07:58
Thou shall not fear embrace thy holy death the gift for the ferryman has been given SO close your eyes forever it is my duty to ensure the crossing of every impure human being the cleansing has begun Disenchanted Dark and starless The sky presents itself soaked in gloomy black depraved through centuries predestinated to fall awaiting salvation delivered by the hand of judge I am summoner I am deliverance I am ultimate certitude And I´m transcendence Coins – on the eyes of the dead Signs – cut in their heads Human shells – embalmed and pristine Hear my prayer – the endtime doctrine Blood flows like water A river to the netherworld reset the earth to the point of origin Oh mighty architects of the universe Enlighten my path Saturate me with power fulfill my fate – cause I …. am…. the Executor I am Doom I am Obliteration And I am the heir to the…. VOID – IN the eyes of the dead Signs – cut in their heads Human shells – embalmed and pristine Hear my prayer – the endtime doctrine Seize the chance To purge the world from malady And one memorable day The blood-phoenix will rise again This is my prayer My prayer from the end of times The proclamation Of the apodictic judgement seize the chance to purge the world from malady and one memorable day the blood-phoenix will rise again

Philosopher 04:17
the seeing among the blind is the philosopher… of light March through the darkness On Towards the light Put forth your hand embrace and unite The chalice of wisdom Perceive it´s holy presence The well of might Imbibe it´s pure essence Eager for knowledge Wisdom and might Seeking for power Answers and light Quenchless compulsion To dominate and rule Burning ambition The infinite fuel We are destined to be adored, Because we are the symbol of supremacy Become the master Of masters We were created to fucking Dominate And rule this world The comprisal of knowledge Swallow it´s brilliance The instrument of power Endow them with guidance Eager for knowledge Wisdom and might Seeking for power Answers and light Quenchless compulsion To dominate and rule Burning ambition The infinite fuel the seeing among the blind is the philosopher of light the leader of mind becomes ruler of the world Soul searchers Drowning in emptiness condemned futile existences I doom you for what you are ! Obedience And purity Justice and honesty pillars of the eternal empire a king shall be crowned

Aeons ago Under a crimson moon A fateful ceremony took it´s place It was a ritual Of ancient magic AND DEVOTION two old spirits melting into each other crossing their bloodlines becoming one forever blazing heat, emitting sparks a unison of perfection we were setting free the most powerful force it was an everlasting promise of mutual dedication the undying love in its purest form destined for each other a pact that has been sealed by moistened lips you are mine and forever I´m yours As time passed by our light was fading Earthly shells were Rotting But on our deathbeds We´ve always sworn an oath it was an everlasting promise of mutual dedication the undying love in its purest form destined for each other a pact that has been sealed by moistened lips you are mine and forever I am yours Through all the centuries Through death and birth We were witness Of mankind´s darkest hour When I manage to close my burning eyes I feel your touch, your breath of life All of your beauty, your strength and regalness Never, I have thought You could be taken away within one single glimpse of an eye I STILL CAN HEAR YOUr VOICE, YOUR SCREAMS FROM THE LAND OF DISTANT SHADOWS Through the mists of time I´ll be looking for you I´ll be Searching your divinity your divinity… You will be mine again… my undying love

Oh might, wisdom Fortune and blood I hallow my mind To the cosmic powers To the infinitude itself In deep humility For your unimitable glory Oh gods of the abyss Thoughts of null Clear my mind See the unseen Reveal eternalness Take my spirit Carry me away To astral spheres Of sanatory silence Form my sanctuary My place of rest Total abandonment Into eternity I tender you Full of expectations sanity On a silver plate accept my offering admit me to your realm drown me in your words forever flood my world The time has come Retirement of the Patriarch Let the haze of oblivion Spread over These vanities of earthly life Take my spirit Carry me away To astral spheres Of sanatory silence Form my sanctuary My place of rest Total abandonment Into eternity Take my spirit Carry me away To astral spheres Of sanatory silence

about

On September 11th internationally, AOP RECORDS is proud to present THEOTOXIN’s highly anticipated third album, Fragment : Erhabenheit, on CD and vinyl LP formats.

With the intention of creating supreme black metal art, THEOTOXIN ascended from the catacombs of Vienna, Austria in 2016. A quintet featuring members of Zombie Inc., Selbstentleibung, and now-labelmates ANOMALIE, this strong lineup of musicians has been well tested on tour all over Europe.

In 2017, THEOTOXIN self-released their debut album, Atramentvm, and kept writing new material, which led to the release of the successor Consilivm (Massacre Records) just a year later. Plenty of live appearances and a tour through Europe followed, further honing the band’s considerable chops. On those stages did the band deliver a throttling live show with deep atmosphere; the name THEOTOXIN began to spread.

Now aligned with longtime fans AOP RECORDS, THEOTOXIN are eager to spread their black chants even further with their strongest album yet. Bearing the thematic title of Fragment : Erhabenheit, THEOTOXIN’s third album is both a consolidation of the band’s strengths as well as an extension of new ones. Much like their intense onstage performances, the violence is palpable – almost overwhelmingly so – and is doled out with the ease of experienced masters. Equally so, however, a chilling melodicism rises from this physicality which puts Fragment : Erhabenheit in rarefied territory: a paradoxically refreshing (re)iteration of second-wave black metal classicism. It’s as much mid ‘90s as it is Now, and THEOTOXIN simply make it look all too easy…

Suitably graced with demonic-yet-mystical artwork courtesy of the masterful Jose Gabriel Sabogal, Fragment : Erhabenheit is guaranteed to be THEOTOXIN’s breakout moment!
