about

"Decades Of Despair" is more or less the closing track for the "Lilith" EP, we wanted to write something that was a lot more technical, emotional and powerfull while at the same time holding that aggresive sound. In this track both guitarists Alexander Sevigny and Aaron Gregory both pulled off an amazing display for this track, the catchy riffs, the tone changes everything was executed perfectly, Alexander managed to create the rest of the instrumental perfectly and it slotted together really nicely with their guitar work.

Lyricially this whole ep fortells the story of the demon succubus Lilith, before she became a demon, what turned her into what we all know her as today, the way the world is cruel and break people and that even the sweetest of people can have a dark sadistic side.

lyrics

Memories of pain, caused by decades of despair, you walk the corridors of my hollow mind, too many doors and too little time, you will never unlock the secrets kept within the walls of my subconciousness,
The desire to die outweighs the lust to live, take my hand, close your eyes this will all be over soon, Lilith you will be brought back from this madness a corruption of your beating heart

I watch in horror as you strip the flesh from the bones of lesser men, their screams of horror mangled by your screams of pleasure, breaking bone to find what lies beneath the surface, amongst the flames you look at me, I see the remourse and regret in your eyes, but it must be done, your vengence must be satisfied before the silver moon.

A misunderstood beauty you never wanted this, confused and lost all those years ago you sold your soul to regain your innocence, that which was stolen from you by lesser men, cold and helpless you looked to me for guidance and now with a purpose revealed you begin to exterminate the filth that walk this earth, a misunderstanding you never meant for the innocent to die in vain.


Underneath this blackened sky, the ground stained red with the blood of the lesser, I see your eyes glaring beneath the moonlight, staring into my soul searching for what lies beneath the surface, a unamed vixen with the cruelist intentions was also the pureist of heart.

I watch in horror as you strip the flesh from the bones of lesser men, their screams of horror mangled by your screams of pleasure, breaking bone to find what lies beneath the surface, amongst the flames you look at me, I see the remourse and regret in your eyes, but it must be done, your vengence must be satisfied before the silver moon.

As the dust settles, as the red sun rises, cold and lifeless lay the bodies of the lesser, like the hands of time we are stood still eye to eye, your lips crimson red, one final embrace my pale beauty to lay me to eternal slumber.
