"Nocturnus" Demo - 1987

 

1. Nocturnus


There's a land in ancient history
Born of an evil prophecy
Where the Lord of Darkness
Rules all that will be

[Chorus:]
Nocturnus will rise
By a spell I'll devise
With hate in their eyes
The good we despise

[first two lines indecipherable]
The land of good will fall
The power to break heaven's walls

[Chorus]

A Dark City Appears before Heaven's Gate
Millions of Demons already Await
Spectres filled with hate to give God his fate

[Chorus]

Then the demons began to attack;
It's the ultimate fight between good and evil

The battle is done
Nocturnus has won
To put out the sun
Darkness has won


2. Before Christ / After Death


Before Christ no one cared
Evil was in everyone's heart
Sins were committed every day of your life
There was no wrong from right

Then he came to change it all
He really thought he could do some good
The son of God sent to this Earth
But the Romans showed him what he was worth

Before Christ - I ruled the land
After Death - I will rule once again

Before Christ - I ruled the land
After Death - I will rule once again

At the last supper he was betrayed
By a friend he thought he had made
Maybe he didn't know it all
Like he claimed he did

Before Christ - I ruled the land
After Death - I will rule once again

Before Christ - I ruled the land
After Death - I will rule once again

Hanging on the cross
With a crown of thorns
The Romans just laughed
"Who is this son of God?"

He died like everyone else
He didn't change a thing
Because today
Evil rules once again

Before Christ - I ruled the land
After Death - I will rule once again

Before Christ - I ruled the land
After Death - I will rule once again
Before Christ - I ruled the land
After Death - I will rule once again
After Death - There is no more
After Death - There is no more
Jesus Christ - He is no more

2. Neolithic


Years of development
Destroyed in day's
Beings the genocide
A great fire
Has affected
The earth, Moon and seas

As the earth
Began to tilt
All polar caps
Had started to melt
Then the seas
Began to over flow
Ripping the continents
Aparts
[Chorus 2 Times]
Neolithic

As the sky
Began to turn dark
And the sun
Faded away
All the climates
Had begun to drop
And the ground
Started to freeze

As the land
Began to freeze
All the animals
Were trapped inside
Some animals
Had moved to the sea
Creating a new
Form of life

Stranded on the rivers shore
Fossilized in time

As continents ripped apart
Lands forms moved to the sea
[Repeat 3 times]

Rising, Soaring, Devasting, Annihilation


3. Standing In Blood


Now heaven is destroyed
By Satan
He will rule
The promised land
Now your soul will be freed
Through the gate
Find the KEY
To hell
Cross the river
Known as Styx
Charon awaits
In his boat

Now your soul will be freed
Through the gate
Find the seven
Keys to hell
Cross the river
Known as Styx
Kneel befour Lucifer's throne
[Chorus 2 Times]

Jesus wept-Standing in Blood
Praying to die -Standing in Blood


4. Undead Journey


My will to walk the earth again
To come forth from my grave
Satan gives me the power to rise again
On my Undead Journey

As i awaken, In my grave
And wipe the maggots from my face
Then open my encrusted eyes
To see the world a second time

Clawing through the casket lid
As I pull up through the ground

My first victim I will find
A young girl on whick to dine

My rotted teeth rip, into her pure white skin
Now warm blood fills my cold veins
Flesh is what i seek, Brains for me to eat
The feeling i get rejuvinates my soul
Come with me on my undead journey
Walk the earth for evermore

UNDEAD!!!


 


 

"The Key" - 1990

 

1. Lake Of Fire


Bones crushing
Skulls smashing
In the Vice
Of hell
Demons shoving
Tortured souls
In the lake
Of fire
[Chorus 3 Times]
Lake of fire

Spirits forming
Ever swirling
In the abyss
Of hell
Souls screaming
For their lives
In the lake
Of Fire

Demons swarming
Corpses smashing
Through the gates
Of hell
Satan flying
From his throne
Towards the gates
Of Heaven

Asking questions, through my crystal ball

Now become nocturnal slaves

7. Andromeda Strain


Modern warfare of today
Brings forth a new technology
Killing through scientific means
Destroy the world with technology
Now we'll see what is to be
Inescapability

Cloud masses concentrate
Osmosis fills the sky

Scattered remains, bodies left to decay
On this disease stricken earth, plague of Andromeda Strain

Affected by the gas
Reduce them to subhuman form

As I glimpse at, swelled up corpses
infested with, radiated insects

Global chaos - Mass confusion
The conclusion - Of a dying world

Mankinds death is close at hand
The world is hanging by a strand
The key to an obliterated land
No one seems to understand


8. Droid Sector


ENTER THE DROIDS

Cybernetic cralts approaching
Through skies lit with fusion discharge
Androids from the gamma quadrant
Moving at the speed of death

Now the human race is sovulnerable
Invasion set for attack
"Enter the Droids"

Command - Mission - Destroy - Planet - Three - From - Their Sun

Caught within my tractor beam
Bringing the craft to me
Disable the robot for my own use
To aid my escape
Fleets of ships are now arriving,overtaking
Physical evasion is my only demise
Left to me for my survival

Gaining data from their system, overriding
To complete my invention, the time machine
Only question is "will it function"?


9. Destroying The Manger


Mastering the forces of teleportation
Gaining the secrets to travel through time
Approaching the vortex, chronometer reading 0 B.C

What was the past will soon be changed
My first priority to destroy the manger
Crushing with the myths of paradox

Merging with the past
Shock waves rip the continuum
How long can I last, travelling at millenium?

Following the North Star shining abright
To a place of the holy birth site
Craving my need to kill the one
Born of the name "Nazarene Son"

[chorus 4 times]
Destroy The Manger
DIE - BY - THE - SIGN - OF - THE - KEY
DIE - BY - THE - SIGN - OF - THE - KEY

Now that I have you into my sights, Nazarene child
Pulling the trigger with no reconcile
Blasting away Father, Mother, and Child
Laughing hysterically all of the while

For centuries I have awaited this confrontation
In time I will bring them all down
Your savior has now fallen
My reign of evil has only just begun


10. Empire Of The Sands


Fortress of steel I have acquird
Behold, Behold the chosen one born of fire
Victorious, death has won, rule of crueity
Vicious experiments, creating synthetic slave
Computer hypnosos, cerebral override

Inventing new weaponry
Building defence systems
Force fields in operation
Erecting redar dishes

[chorus 2 times]
Empire Of The Sands

Mapping global surface regions
Graphing seismic active areas
Establishing aerial viewpoints
Charting several outpost stations

[chorus 2 times]
Empire Of The Sands

Testing elements in the ozone
Mining useful mineral layers
Drilling deep into the core
Seeking power from the earth

Building metal walls of armour
Forging massive iron thresholds
Circuits surrounds inner cavaties
Vector brain controlling all

Computer summons ancient evil
Forces beyond recognition
Evoking Gods of Sumerian orgin
Deeply buried in the sands

Obeying the matrix
The tyrant commands
Submissive controller
Armies of the Empire

BY THE WORKS OF DARKNESS

CLIMATE CONTROLLER (the weather dominator)

[CHANT]

STORMS - manufacturated to destroy
FIRE - striking down from the sky
WIND - sweeping all rocks and trees aside
LAVA - emerging out of volcanoes
QUAKES - shake the earth to split
DEATH - from the clouds

ARMIES - marching in to their doom
SPIRITS - plundering their very souls
IONS - displaced from deep inside
WEAPONS - of the Gods

[CHORUS:]
FUSION OF THE ANCIENT WAYS
WITH MODERN TECH SUPPORT
BRINGING ATMOSPHERIC CHANGE
MASTER OF CLIMATE CONTROL

CHANTING TO THE ANGRY GODS
SEEDING CLOUDS WITH ICE
CAUSING SHIFTS IN ETHER PLANES
MASTER OF CLIMSTE CONTROL

Incantation finished as the armies start to charge
Suddenly the air begins to take on many shapes
Demons of the Legion swarm to take revenge
Sheets of blindness tossing every human fool aside

NO THING LEFT TO COUNT NO BODIES
BLOOD STAINED EARTH AND STONE LIE SCATTERED

[CHORUS]

Aftermath of horror sends a message to the globe
Danger to the Empire will result in hells untold
Ripping both the flesh and soul of anyone who tries
To take with force the Realm of the one who rules the skies

NO THING LEFT TO COUNT NO BODIES
BLOOD STAINED EARTH AND STONE LIE SCATTERED

[VERSE 1]

Keeping enemy troops in sight high above the fight
Armies destroyed watching with delight
Waiting patiently for an eye to subdue the sky
Counting the dead as they lie in waste


2. Tribal Vodoun


From deep inside the islands comes
a religious belief of magical fate
Necronomic tribes of the secret societies

Conducting ceremonies of the Vodoun faith
Revenge in store for enemies they hate
Soon to die awaiting to arise

Doomed to die by a malevolent curse
Carnival of chaos
Symbolic designs
carved in the earth to beckon LEGBA

[Rites of the Petro]

Reflections of rage and violence
Thundering drums echo unforgiving

Tribal chants grow louder
Dancers travel throughout the fire

Deity of fire OGU
Protects skin from the flames

Divine horsemen arrive
mounting the initiation of possession

Tearing glass / utter pandemonium
spirits indulge in burning torches

Spinnig dancers wake to reality

Vodoun - cannot be abstracted from the day to day life - of the Believer
All is whole - no separation between material and spiritual

The Bokor concocts the powder with the poisonous Datura
sprinkled upon the way of his victim
Body racked with terrible convulsions -
Mucus flowered from the nose and mouth shaking horrible

The edge of consciousness
criteria of poison
Lethargic coma
Indistinguishable from death

Comatose
Mentally alive / pronounced phisically dead
Nails driven into the coffin buried prematurely
Mind slips / disoriented / complete amnesia
Three days fermented incarnation of Evil

Baron SAMEDI
Guardian of the cemetery
Preparing the victim's soul
for Zombification

The fear initiates the victim
Psychologically vulnerable
Powder does not secure
Fate / its the mind
Baron unleashes cadaver
A soul trapped in a vessel
Blood spilt offering
Resurrection of zombie
Body without character
Aimlessly wandering through time
Servant to the Bokor
Le culte Des morts


3. Nocturne In Bm


[INSTRUMENTAL]


4. Arctic Crypt


Locked inside the ice below
Forgotten long ago
An alien object lies in wait
Lost beneath the snow

Seismic readings from the north
Lights above the poles
Curious humans drawn to the sight
Staking camp in the frozen night

[CHORUS]
Legends told of the evil within
Still, forewarned, the man came in
Seeking knowledge forbidden to man
Bringing death unto their land

Noxious emissions alert the team
The source is soon revealed
A strange capsule scarred by time
Covered with a foreign script
Anxious to unlock its secrets
They crack open the seal
Unleashing the beast contained inside
The frozen arctic crypt

[CHORUS 2]
Legends told of the horror within
An ancient traveler of the stars
Left entombed until disturbed by man
Bringing death unto their land


5. Aquatica


In the future year - 2023
Multinational warlords - build an aquatic colony
In the struggle for - total domination
Corporate powers - move in to take control

Stratagem inset
Manipulate the opposition
Wrath of devastation
to reduce life status

Martial law declared - surveilence over the colonies
Wage and mayhem - put to an end momentarily
Resolving confrontations - over territorial disputes
Battles break out - when negotiations crumble

Charred remains
washing to the shore
Escaped ones flee
to the surface

Vessels patrol
the ocean floor
Maintaining border dominion
through eradication of organisms

Sea and surface life
All is sacrificed
In quest for
reign of the deep

Whosoever
masters the seas
the last remaining frontier
gains the wealth locked in the brine

Precious minerals sought - by the surface
Hostile takeover of - the mining communities
Storm troopers of technology
Careful to maintain nitrogen balance
Surgically removing
the enemy within

New leaders create - order out of chaos
A civilization - beneath the depths
Arson of power
conquering the oceans - Forming imbalance
Particles react
Expire life from - the precious seas
Thresholds mend
Sludge chain reaction - melts them down again
Depth charge
Destabilizing crust - and floor
Instructed probes
Sear the water from - the toxic veil
Weapons system
Tear the living - from their glory
Vandal masters
carving up - the bio system
Submerged deep
Fatal dictatorship - of the seas

[spoken verse]
Surface dwellers tremble
from a new superpower
Superior intellect choosing
Base in the seas
Systematically eliminating
All who do not take heed
Stench of the aftermath
confirms Aquatica's victory

No longer shall there be
any separations between cultures
Remaining survivors cast into a
melting pot of conglomerate slavery
Absolute extinction of the once
praised heroic patriot
Lands of solid ground turned into
a biodegradable human wasteland
Pay homage to the ocean
where the kingdom now dwells
Aquatica, the submerged city


6. Subterranean Infiltrator


Release me from the sky
onto marsh domains
Expose the parachute to
Ease - the - vicious fall

Unseen by those below
Preying on their blind sights
shadows dance
About - the - jungle bog

Agent of espionage
Bearing north of the peninsular
Invitation to lay clear
Think - over - the strategy

Advance into forbidden marsh
scope all in the infrared
Create offensive
Resistance - from the - river banks

Searching,
Stalking,

Entering the concealed passage
corridors extend beneath the surface
Maneuvering through the
Radar - beams - alarm reaction

Progression is slow under canister discharge
Targets locked at the ends of the turns
Awaiting any enemy to
Approach - infrared - identification

Once inside the target's range
Seize the moment by squeezing the trigger
Single lead injection
Intentions to wound - not to kill yet

Movement gives away strategic position
A regiment responds to the action
Trip wire set, suckered into the trap
They lay decapitated

Moving quickly
Towards goal
Stealth the key
Clear path
To achieve lethal detonation

Flares of weapons
Burst in synch
Give way
Delay charge
Chemical timers are now set

Once on the surface
Reconnaissance picks him up
On the scope
Subterranean specialist
Looks down below
As the mountain lies in rubble


7. Alter Reality


YOUR UNIVERSE IS ONLY A PRODUCT OF YOUR MIND

No escape
Once the threshold is crossed
Life and death
Hold no meaning

Hidden doors
Interdimensional shifts
A dreamy state
Of paralysis

Bands of mass
Convert into energy
Forms of light
Where no light exists

Time dilation
Ad infinitum
Linear chaos
Internal distortion

Once inside
A dual state of being exists
Non-sequitur
Traveler of the continuum

ALTERED TIME
ALTERED SPACE
WAVES OF GRAVITY
ALTER REALITY

Entropy
Nonexistent in this place
Macrocosm
Situated in parallel space

Constant flux
Warping all that spins throughout
Elements
Sharing outer valence shells

Identity
Blends into waves of shock
Haze of reason
Shades of deformity

Correlation
On an atomic level
Portal ajar
He stumbles into the unknown

Overwhelmed
By free association
Twisted region
Shown to the journeyman

Overload
All is dissipated
Displayed
Violently unto the senses

[CHORUS]
ALTERED TIME
ALTERED SPACE
RELATIVE DEFORMITY
ALTER REALITY

8. Gridzone


From the edge of outer regions
Far beyond our solar zone
Exists an altered sphere of power
Earth and metal machine of war

Planet's crust pierced by cables
Linking networks beneath the surface
Titanium plates shield the globe
Cohesion of the infrastructure

Friction of electromagnets
Simulates centrifugal force
Massive gyros beginning to turn
Enforcing acceleration

[PRE CHORUS]

Thrusters fire across the region
Spewing forth nucleic plasma
Worlds consumed - astral threat
Perpetual horror - termination

GRID ZONE

Brutally consructed / designed warfare
Perpetuating evil / awaits no more
Intruding on / peaceful isolation
Conformity crushed / death is near

Neutralize - chosen targets
Essential - suffering terrorized

GRID ZONE

Deceptive diversion / blinded satellites cannot trace
Mechanical malfunction
Deteriorating systems by the interface
Initial confrontation sieged by catastrophic annihilation
Inferior worlds destruction
Laser gouging / penetration

From the edge of outer regions
Far beyond our solar zone
Exists an altered sphere of power
Earth and metal machine of war

Light years traveled forming an elliptical path
Eons of galactic destruction
Creating a vacuum crushing the globe
Devouring the energy dispersed
Seeker of impending doom
Completing an eternal cycle

Worlds consumed - astral threat
Perpetual horror - termination

GRID ZONE
