Symphony In Moonlight And Nightmares

This night belongs to us
My dear princess of death
We have a destiny together
As we meet in hungry caress

A deadly kiss under moonlit sky
As I stare into thy dark and hollow eyes
You take me down where cold silence dwell
Unconscious darkness
Realms of demise

You are born at my grace to serve only me

Blood paint on the wall is the ancient dream I recall
Predictions in rainstorm
As tears darkred cascaded
In cryptic depths of imprisoned rage
Where I succumbed in temptation
In the laughter of cruel gods
Demonic wrath and devastation

A monstrous energy demands to be set free
Frigid evil games black art and blasphemy prophecies in blood
A deadly kiss under darkened bliss

We have a gift of shining
By knowing the history
Behind obscure mysteries

The mysterious
Source of true art and experience


Eve Of Midnight

Join in for a dance with the dead
A ceremonial requiem for the gods
When the moon is drained by all its light
On burial ground we gather in the night

Burning candles, incantations
Witches sabbath with unholy craft
Screams and laughter pierce the air
Like a haunting chant through the atmosphere

The dance is held to the end
When the shades of darkness trancend
Beside the ancient lake beneath the spelling moon
Across the fields of hallowed tombs

Join us, walk among us
Mysticus Magus Manifesto
Spectaculum Mortuus
Exercitor

We are they who adore the vast midnight skies
Where stars they shins like serpent eyes
We'll free thy soul from its chain
Arrive with thunderstorms and rain
From the darkest abyss
Graveland unfolds
Oh hear the distant echoes call
The eve of midnight a host supreme
Open thy world unseen

Eve of midnight

He who holds the book of sights
Shall be the ruler of the night


Path Of Ice

Journey into your darkest secrets
Feel the burning flame inside
Admit the ecstacy of the extreme
Just close the eyes and enjoy the override
When we adrift through the sensual streams
The entchanted pains are so divine

There are thorns everywhere
But along the path of ice roses blooms above
Blood is the rose of mysterious unions
The symbol of potency
A taste of erotic sins of lust
The entrance to immortality

There are such sights to see
Adventures and pleasures to feel
The dormant seeds of suffering
The art of mortal flesh that bleed
Indulged in desire, the forbidden soul empire

Path of ice
The entrance to immortality

Cold winds pierce through me
As my darkstar unfolds
I ascend the throne of fantasies
Where the beautiful abyss recalls


Sources To Agonies

Through the mirror if the soul
I'm staring deep within
To see what dwells behind the wall
The beauty of pale skin

The Aura that surrounds me
Is not of noble kind
The blackness of the heart
Is all that's left to find

A dark river runs silent through my life
Like a floating nemesis
A dark shadow of what that used to be
Drift's now in lifeless misery

Live only to witness what I've become
Midnight is my shallow home
Soon to enter the last deep of mine
I'm forced to follow the streaming bloodline

When the wine of life is shed
And dark cosmic space consume
I bring the memories back from the dead
Sources to agonies
A devouring monsoon


Solace Of The Shadows

I require the solace of the shadows
So the night can be redeemed
As the winds of darkness whispers my name
A kiss of death I recieve
Nocturnal enchanter to thy art I yield
Within the candlelight a rapture is sealed

I set the stones, for invoking ceremonies
In the twilight zones arise abstract galaxies
The migic eye unveils the blackened skies
A new horison begins to each one that dies

The desolation makes me feel....
So dark, so cold, the silence
So dark, so cold, the emptiness
Solace of the shadows

Night surrounds and embraces me
Darkness holds the secrets of man's fears
It captures my heart as the purgatory sears
I cast now the spell as I cross through raging flames
Into darkness cursing flames

I require the solace of the shadows
So the night can be redeemed

Nocturnal enchtanter to thy art I yield
Within the candlelight the rapture is now revealed


The Black Heart's Nirvana

Hallowed be the darkness that coronates my soul
Deep within it's shelter I seek my highest goals
I shall release what is conquered
From which that I now possess
All lifeforce is abandoned
Into the arms of death

Beyond the great dark adventures
In steams from the vast mysteries
Limbonic spheres enclose me
My star is the death of memories

I dwell in a mournful symphony
As I prepare for the cosmic funeral
The body yearns for dormancy
My spirit awaits to be set free

The black vanity I'm romancing
Within the obscurity
I've found my rest where cold emotions reign
And evil dreams of desultory

Through lifetimes I've reached for the candle
In search for the legends of time
'Cause how many moments is'nt a century
When everything dies behind thy eyes
'Cause how many moments is'nt a century
When everything inside just dies....

Info



We know that it is a fucking cliche when a band, after releasing a couple of albums, they release their demos.
We still did in the interest to show our audience, what has contributed to our destiny with nocturnal art,
and maybe the point we are standing today.
We serve you a slight piece of history before the debut album "Moon in the Scorpio", the very limited rehearsals.
Due to extremely bad quality on the original mastertapes, we decided to recreate the production,
with a little touch of new inspiration and spirit.
It may amuse some and bring frustration to others, but our final message to our audience is this:
Take this for what it is... And enjoy the listening!
Daemon, Morfeus

Review



Apparently Limbonic Art already made two cds, and this is a redone version of their demo tapes or something. But I'd never heard them before, I just got to hear this album and I think it's cool. It's fast and melodic black metal, very well played and the production is also very good, so I guess they just rerecorded their demo tracks in a studio or something. Though they sound great, and the start of the first song is fantastic, they just need a little more to distinguish themselves from the rest.
