​Scimitar

This song is by Deathchain and appears on the album Death Gods (2010).

(Music: Cult and Corpse, Lyrics: Cult (except Akkadian magical voice by Frater Saibot))

Šulmum Ištar! Šulmum Ištar!
An empire of insanity
In dominions of astral dark
Through the distortion of fear
Through the flames of Samuel
In front of the stairs of the ziggurat
Sound of severed heads falling
Skulls smashing down those stairs
Madness - insanity - scimitar - beheading
Morningstar, grant the adept with Thy knowledge - Inana
Morningstar, where the twilights meet - Inana
Eveningstar, bless the adept with Thy power - Astarte
Eveningstar, spread your veil of black - Astarte
Mighty goddess of the Underworld, Dragon of power
Lend us Thy blood-stained scimitar - Behead
Stand by our side, in the dawn of a new creation
Fly, RED angel of doom... in the BLACK night sky

(Solo: Cult)

Bless the adept with power!
Parṣum ša emūqim!
Stand by our side in war!
Parṣum ša nukurtim!
A black stream is flowing
From the bronze lions' jaws
As eight rays from the pools of blood
Bless the adept with power!
Parṣum ša emūqim!
Stand by our side in war!
Parṣum ša nukurtim!
Parṣum ša erṣatim!
Parṣum ša Ušumgallatim!
Morningstar, where two twilights meet - Inana
Eveningstar, spread your veil of black - Astarte
Finally at the top of the stairs
Before the entrance
Entering Her temple
The temple of the Death Goddess...
