about

"Pittsburgh’s largely unsung goddesses of death returned after a long hiatus to release their first proper full-length – a full 24 years after their inception – and luckily for us, it’s fucking MASSIVE. This is raw, primitive with a bit of polish, and above all, ungodly heavy death/doom from a cadre of ladies who were cracking skulls and tuning low while most of us were still in diapers."

Track Name: Goddess of Death
Goddess of Death
Darkness falls on the earth tonight
Up above the moon shines so bright
Listen to the silent winds so faint
Your lustful eyes will lead you to your doom

Take our hand we'll show you pleasures unknown
Don't look back, leave the world you knew
The night is young, follow us down this path
We'll drain your blood then we'll take your soul

We'll drain your blood
Watch you slowly die
We'll drink your blood
you lie faint; your dying breath

Your blood is drained
Your body is so pale
The Goddess of Death
Shall live again

Your blood shall give us life eternal
We'll feast on the blood that gave you life
Come with me, nothing to fear
We'll watch you twitch in pain and agony

Darkness falls on the earth tonight
Up above the moon shines so bright
Listen to the silent winds so faint
Our taste for blood will bring you to your doom

Take our hand we'll show you pleasures unknown
Don't look back, leave the world you knew
The night is young, follow us down this path
We'll drain your blood then we'll take your soul

We'll drain your blood
Watch you slowly die
We'll drink your blood
you lie faint; your dying breath gives us new life
Track Name: Obscurities of Darkness
Black mist from the grave
Listen to what they say
Welcome to our world
Time passed through faithfully

Follow us closely
Tread through carefully
Into death we follow
Obscurities of Darkness

Night winds are here
Black shadows appear
Candles light your way
Journey to the tomb of life no more

Reborn ashes from your soul
Walk with the shadows of the dead
Religion failed you, its folklore
Life once known nevermore

Death seeks you

Wake now from your grave
All pain has gone away
Souls of those you once knew
Gather to greet you, your past now died

Follow us closely
Tread through carefully
Into death we shall fall
Obscurities of Darkness

Cursed living souls
Those still on earth
Remember those they knew
Their time will come to, until they join you

Dark paths lead our way
Into Obscurities of Darkness
Track Name: Rest in Peace
Restless spirits once alive
Distant shadows beyond reality
Can you hear them speak?
In your restless sleep
Jealous of the life you have
Theirs taken suddenly
Unable to accept their death
Unable to rest in peace

Your day will soon come
The end of life for those you know
And will you haunt those living?
Or will you rest in peace
Awaken your mind to
Hear what they have to say
If only just a whisper
to guide you through actuality

Darkness waits for you
Wayward souls welcome you
And you will be forgotten
If you rest in peace
Track Name: Until Our Death
One day life had changed
Your breath was your last
Darkness set in with force
I refuse to give in to your death
Your life........will revive

Candles shall guide you to
The light you once knew
The light you left behind
I will bring you back
Do not despair my love
We will be together again

Your body...so cold to touch
Warmth is just a breath away
Hear this spell I cry
to your soul that died

Come back....my sweet

Life is brought back with my warmth
You will stay with me until our end
No gods will decide our fate
Our time will end but not today
We live...........until our death
Track Name: Shadows of the Past
Ungodly visions are haunting me
Must I sleep and see what I should not see
Awake I lie, remembering
Is this real or is it fantasy

Darkness is calling me
Return to the state of life beyond
Silence so loud, body is weak
What is this that continues to visit me?

Nightmarish, darkness, surrounds
Shadows of the Past
Footsteps echo within
These visions of the past

Sounds of horror
No escape

They creep through the night
Screeching as they turn and look towards me
Stand still, they don't see me
Close my eyes until I wake from this dream
Searching for escape
Twilight seeks for my return
What am I forced to see
In the world of fear and fantasy
Track Name: Last Rites
Awaken life breathless
Time replaced with still
Echoes of words once said
Translate to nonsense
Demons await for you
Another soul to gain
Words of a mortal fool
Try to save your death

Now the curse is cast on your life
Caught between the dark and the light
The priest is summon to your side
Cleanse your sins with your last rites

Save this man
From hells dark force
Erase his life sins
Forgive I command
Mortal words will now fail
This priest has no right
For he is just a man
Fighting against the dawn of time

Your fate cannot change
With your last rites
Your soul cannot be saved
With your last rites

Stone carved with your name
Life summed up in a phrase
All that is left of you
Are the memories that shall fade soon
Your life is gone

Unto your death
Laid to rest
Placed in your grave
Unto the earth
Fresh laid dirt

Walk into the mist of fog
Scattered are hundreds of graves
Lost inside deaths maze
Beyond the gates sinners await for you
Track Name: Witchburned
You've been chosen
The one not conformed
you must be a witch
Based on the tales
Your time is at end
Confess now and save your soul
We have no mercy
You've been condemned

Now you will die, burned at the stake

Morning is near
The stakes are now set
Any last words
Doesn't matter what you say
We must now cleanse
Those who infect
To save our souls
You must slowly die
Tie me up to the stake
Light the sticks at my feet
Now you watch me burn
You just stand and watch
As I twist in pain
Winds from the east
Spread my remains
My ashes inhaled
Now I am a part of you

You will be next
Those that accused
The witch shall live on
Inside those who took my life

Now you will die, burned at the stake

How does it feel?
Not to have a say
You will be judged
Based on their tales
The madness lives on
Insanity rules the weak
The differences of man
Destroy all 'til, until decay
Track Name: In Death We Meet
Dara, this is to you
We know you're still around
Silence fills the air
I think we all died that day with you

Slowly your life ended
Blood spewed from your side
Did it hurt you much?
As your body was crushed

Why did it end that way?
You did not deserve such a death
It hurts to think of you then
So scared I'm sure and so trapped
Did you have to go?
Could you not hang on?
Time now seems so real
we think of you everyday
(REPEAT)

I visit you at your grave site
Imagine that you're standing there
But remembering you in the coffin
Takes me back to that day

Oh, these memories of you alive
Go back to when I was just a child
Knowing you was a gift, one thought will always remain
In life we laughed, and In Death We Meet
