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.

Sentenced – The Suicider

Sentenced was a Finnish gothic metal band that played melodic death metal in their early years. The band formed in 1989, in the town of Muhos, Finland, and broke up in 2005.

[music: Tenkula & SENTENCED, words: the serial self-killer]

“‘.I am the light that shall lead you to darkness'”
Well, here I am, I’m back again
From the Deadlands I descend’
back from the dead, back from The End
‘I’m here to take Revenge!

Soon the deathly dusk will fall
and the Night I’ve waited for
‘at the dawn you’ll live no more
Breathing through Death’ Living for Bloodshed’
I’m the Suicider dying every night and day
Killing me is not enough to make me go away

I live to kill and kill to live
And long for dying endlessly
Each time I kill I’m born again
‘I have become The End

Thus I am and thus I’ll die
yet another thousand times
‘I am dead and I am alive
Take a deep breath’
It’s the last one you will get!!!

I’m the Suicider dying every night and day
Killing me is not enough to make me go away
I’m the Suicider seeking for the End of Life
(But) killing me is not enough to cease the flame inside
‘Thus I kill and thus I`ll die’
Thus I will live for all time

I’m the suicider dying every night and day
Killing me is not enough to make me go away

I’m the suicider seeking for the end of life
But killing me is not enough to cease the flame inside

…the flame inside [2x]

All Songs Nightwish

Nightwish – Noise

Nightwish is a symphonic metal band from Kitee, Finland. The band was formed in 1996.

Crave the machine
Revere the screen
Zoom in for flak and misery
Bleed some pixels

Shoot yourself
Pose for the dead
Have a near-life experience
In a hot air matrix

Now you’re a star
Vain avatar
Feeding the beast
In your loud Egoland

You have become
Tool of a tool
Digital ghouls
Telling you to
Shut up and dance!

Color a yarn and the crowds will gather

Noise
From a sunless world
Your mirror is black, only a copy stares back
At a slave of brave new world
Noise
To decoy the human voice
Brain insomniac, paranoiac
Endless noise

Please love me
See how I bleed
Please endure
I have such empathy in me

Hum, noise, hum
Beautifully numb
Tapping the quiet air
To have a meaning

By a carrion
Sad hologram
Lost in the maze
The real and human feel

Sunset is free
From this deity
The Earth has a real voice
Go out and get in

I will follow

Color a yarn and the crowds will gather

Feast your eyes on the black mirror
Feed the beast, join the gathering
Tell a tale
Feast of fears is drawing nearer

Beyond the human horizon
Something terrifying sleeps
