Thy Serpent – Thou Bade Nothingness

Thy Serpent is a Finnish black metal band from Espoo. It started out as a solo project by Sami Tenetz in 1992. A full lineup was acquired in 1995.

In times, when I fain of a season
Its chill hold me wist, of an unknown reason
Greyness upon streams parlous and cool
Sheer the light which reflects from Plenilune

Ready to tale stars of wan, as both forwandered,
And loath the ways thee all ran astounded
So did thine glaive rust with wind and water
So terrified of fallow thee roamed to gutte

Perhaps the fragments of thine willing skin
Saw no reflections of, what is called a bale king
Neither have Fall’s shades descended to leaves
Of no nightbird’s ashes belong to mine needs

Together a battle raged between moon,
Likely the escorts of an velvet son.
One lode led to forhungered wood,
The frith were dark and thus thou run

As I see nothing but mere piece of meat,
Trying to achieve as vision holds lack.
Hanging upon wold, not wist the made plead,
Twisting in gloam, this path fares not back…

Thus… Of no nightbird’s ashes shall I devour.


Sadly, I’m not aware of a live version – So at this time no Live for this track.

Song Lyrics Thy Serpent

Thy Serpent – Only Dust Moves

Thy Serpent is a Finnish black metal band from Espoo. It started out as a solo project by Sami Tenetz in 1992. A full lineup was acquired in 1995.

Distress has found a dwelling place in me
Already pale as death but still I bleed
For promises have shown their fragility
Spare me your affection and pity

The world no longer is a joyful dream
But a crystal with darksome gleam
About to fall
Soon be shattered
One shard for every emotion dead
I will rather learn to enjoy misery
Than partake a life of hypocrisy

Here I sit by the slowly dying candlelight
So I will sink with the shadows by my side
I flew with wings of the dragonfly ;
Came down as the rain poured out of the sky
And storm winds howled over the land
Snow covered the trees and ice the sand

No illusions remain
Silence conquers us all
Solitude the only reality

Only dust moves, set in motion aeons ago
When there was still life in this world


Sadly, I’m not aware of a live version – So at this time no Live for this track. Instead, here’s a nice little bit of “nice to know”:

Nightwish’s first single “The Carpenter” was released with two songs by other Finnish artists, this song by Thy Serpent was it’s 3rd track, the 2nd was “Red Light In My Eyes, Part II” by Children Of Bodom.

Song Lyrics Thy Serpent

Thy Serpent – Flowers Of Witchery Abloom

Thy Serpent is a Finnish black metal band from Espoo. It started out as a solo project by Sami Tenetz in 1992. A full lineup was acquired in 1995.

[Music : S.Tenetz, Lyrics : A.Litmanen]

As it to hasten the fading glow of the sun,
nocturnal insects rise in their constant hum
The humid earth responde to Twilight’s call,
sending forth the mists of evenfall…

Into shades of grey the evergreen’s subdued
by my feet, flowers of Witchery are abloom
Bittersweet scented in this late summer night
human consciousness penetrated with starlight

A journey will begin here ; onerous thoughts drift to me
now as the powers of nature are manifest
The meadow grows into an alien garden of plenitude
Destination unknown, sanity put to a test

The Glacial epoch brought these moss covered stones
on which I stir from the grasp of restless dreams.
I feel a chilly breath pass through my hollow bones
the reign of summer will soon be dethroned

Like a corpse rotting in a rack
or wintry winds coming over fast
It is all reminder of a single fact ;
all life held so dear is only here to pass


Sadly, I’m not aware of a live version – So at this time no Live for this track.
