A darkest veil conceals the presence of us all Through countless wages of war we find our kind Ever elusive with time Within the presence of another being A failed kingdom shall fall Distill the vengeance bestowed on me Choose your allegiance for this war Mankind's failed there's no escaping what's to come In desperate times we cannot hide Swift retribution is insured Joining with destiny Punishing without control Cleansing humanity What will be left of us all? Life ending prophecy The end has been right on the wall Sands of mortality Brushed by death, crumble and fall Now turn these pages of insanity Upon your threshold made of bone Fading memories of what must be Forgotten remnants of a throne overthrown

Burning winds, celestial death Inhale the torment searing me and consuming my breath To ashes I am bound Breathe the winds of decay Oh fire, take me away from this place Oh horrid obsession Through death we meet again Exquisite and formless the wind carries me Drift now closer to heaven No longer am I Bound to this world of lies Gone is the pain Gone is this life My remains to blacken the sky Heavens denied Blacken the sky Oh horrid obsession Through death we meet again Choke on the embers of forgotten life Blacken the sky Heavens denied Blacken the sky Precious, godless, phoenix One who rises from the ashes of a disembodied soul I drift towards the abyss Eclipse – the day is gone Ascend to mournful heavens To right what has been wronged Displaced, I die to be reborn I shed my flesh of scars once worn Ignite the gates of heaven Consume the throne of fraud In tears I longed for her Now I reach my hand beyond Grey sinister clouds of darkness Infest the world of God Now watch the angels falling From the scorched abysmal dawn As they watched the angels falling From the abysmal dawn My soul begins to cry Blacken the sky

Conquering this poisoned land of dream From this sleep I am now torn A hatred vast turns this world to black Fall unto your knees or you will suffer Mute the screams Of minds unleashed Awakened from slumber Servants will fall For what we are we will now suffer A mindless growing herd upon this earth Servants to their knees Awake at last drowning in this mass Wondering now what is God? Minds unleashed quell this wretched beast Fall unto your knees or you will suffer... For what we are Mute the screams Of minds unleashed Awakened from slumber Servants will fall

Wretched are those that be, search not for why Cold demons barely alive In wake of insanity why won't you rise? Release us from evil that lurks inside Father of mine If thou art divine When will you rise again? For years forgotten pleas hung in the sky Come to me oh serpent divine Fall on hypocrisy bleed them of lies Release us from evil that lurks inside Father of mine If thou art divine When will you rise again? I'm calling out! Born of cancerous life all we touch withers and dies The curse of humanity; a race against time Wicked impulse to consume life Wretched are those that be, search not for why Cold demons barely alive In wake of insanity why won't you rise? Release us from evil that lurks inside Father of mine If thou art divine When will you rise again? Will you not rise again?

Restless beings ones who walk this earth unseen eternally Longing to be free A new day has dawned What's to become of them? Ancient tongues of old once spoke of Solitude's demise Echoing from a silence broken Only I can hear their cries Spirits that long to be free enter my thoughts possessing me Now I've seen the absence of humanity roaming free through out our history The fallen of this age have come with weary eyes and broken hearts Calling me to end this misery Ancient tongues of old once spoke of Solitude's demise Echoing from a silence broken Only I can hear their cries Will they ever escape and be reborn? Remnants of a past frozen Kept alive in shapeless forms A new day has dawned...
7.
Torrents of anger running through my veins Lying in isolation in darkness I remain In waiting for a sign of past visions of my life Drift back to a distant primal self and visualize Worlds locked within the make up of our cells Transcend this life Through the ages I've kept a part of us throughout time I'm lost inside the mind in which I hide I know what's seen by eyes is all a state of mind If I'm dreaming I can't wake up From conception we begin Dying matter never ends Are we only bred to die? Just a shadow of our time The mind brings the defiance of the soul The history of mankind The haunting images curse this life I awaken and now realize it is all a state of mind A prison well designed Our limits defined
8.
Save me now from this plane Liquefy my hatred Give us shelter from the rain Embrace your safety heading through the fog Floating in a dream Awaken from the torment We are obscene Floating now in a dream Holding back the urge to scream Winds befall endlessly Beating at a figure Shout into the heartless gray "What's next to conquer?" Heading through the fog Floating in a dream Awaken from the torment We are obscene Unconquerable now we're salting the earth I foresee the end complete Ritually engulfed in suffering Walk with me through fields of greed Perpetually enslaved to selfish need Will we find solace when we know the truth? Will it bring us peace, or piece of mind? Now bringing out our weakness; devotion absolute Staring blankly at an empty sky Unconquerable now we're salting the earth Habitual, lifeless and born without worth I foresee the end complete Ritually engulfed in suffering Walk with me through fields of greed Perpetually enslaved to selfish need Born to suffering Walk through fields of greed now

Crown Desire 03:38
Extracting cruelty From those who go unseen From a heart of malice Comes grave atrocity Cold is the flesh that yearns for the sun Lying in earth forgotten, rotten and gone Oh crown desire Your thorns once made me weep Pain now inspires These wounds so bitter sweet Roses once teardrops now fall in her hand Woo the forsaken wearing the crown of desire Gods cannot be failing now Whores cannot be caring now Worlds seem to be crumbling down Time cannot be running out Rotten and gone Yearn for the sun Woo the forsaken Desire has come

about

ABYSMAL DAWN’s first album From Ashes was one of the top death metal debuts of the past decade. The Los Angeles quartet's mix of classic death metal brutality, melodic flourishes, and impeccable soloing with a modern delivery made them a must watch band for the next generation of extreme metal connoisseurs. Remastered and featuring three bonus tracks, From Ashes exposes this sorely underrated effort from one of the best new American metal bands.
