Descent into the valley
Surely, what courage you feign?
Ye shall learn the lessons of Bifrons
Thy trespasses fall in vein
Approach, thee, wooded maw
Hewn from dryatic souls
Vast druidic power, beseech thee
Beware the rustling of leaves…

Fimbrethil gone forever
Eons ago she fell
Violently shorn from Gaia’s grace
With roots descending to hell
A woeful hex upon ye
These magicks cull despair
Herein lies the crooked elm
An Ent from Satan’s lair

And, the forest dreams of black…
The adversary’s vitae
Drenched in acid rains
Erode away the very soul of the forest;
It writhes in pain
You fools becursed this haven
Now sorrow remains

A codex of haunted earth
Older than humankind
Bringing to bear thy fallen fruits
Laborious sins of your kind
Oh, what have you done?
Oh, you stupid fools!
Unleashed a force beyond your world
Chthonic repression denied

A darkness upon the seed
It grows again…

Our will, is to spread a message of sinister reality to all. Hear this one, clear message: The meek need only run and hide behind structures of fantasy; we are coming for you.
