1.
What have we became? a desert a fallen temple of the rotten flesh a death's monument timeless ageless desecrated deformed by the winds of time
2.
Arcane order is wandering through the time with a mission to preserve the only posthumous light a flame burning deep in the underground a chosen few cleansed from the grief of life Unholy melodeclamation chants of the dead Through the necromantic rites of the underground through the necromantic rites man becomes god Sons of Adam are holding the key to it all Vale of Hinnom and the grave of the God soil is soaked with the blood of the fools who betrayed the pact sealed with their own lifes Unholy melodeclamation chants of the dead Through the necromantic rites of the underground through the necromantic rites man becomes
3.
This is the darkest night when all of the sacred icons will be covered in spit smeared with blood children of dark tribe are gathering at the graves prepering for the sabbath festival of sin Hidden evil now is unchained possessed prayers are feasting in endless ecstasy Sacred paths below ancient epitaphs God looked down at the Earth the devil rode out Profaned shrines opened graves fallen monuments consumed by fires prime fires of daath Sepulchral phantom raise summoned by the chants raise and embrace us all Raise
4.
With an empty eyes and will broken by disdain conquerors of yesterday casted away from their nests There is no darker night than the one that ends this world fired by a torch kinded by words and gestures world is coming to an end throught the bitter entrails of the Earth falling away from it's tyrants slowly slipping into the abyss With no grace or glory with no preachers to preach their gospels with no blessed tongues ripping through the bitter entrails of the Earth Self-made mythology left minds in disdain a black ruined statue reminds the old days Ripping through the earth's black entrails the mind is the key and the flesh is the gate Ripping through the earth's black entrails
5.
Falling into crypts of the most holy death singing chants of anguish suffering despair these chambers wear a mark of her cryptic breath bones whiten in the dark in unending scare mournful prayers tortured souls araise ascend mournful prayers save a fool from the certain dread lure me to a place where only darkness blends to forgotten paths and lonely graves where no one dares to tread Not to devour not to die a life eternal in the most holy lie Exposed to the black rays from the world below I drift away in solitude my pilgrimage chants of dead as a guide to a deathly glow here is my place to die spectral orphanage Hold me in your permanent frost Not to devour not to die a life eternal in the most holy lie

Cemetery Whore is dead, long live Rites of Daath! Having changed the name, the guys also changed their musical preferences and shifted towards that raw sounding and obscure death metal in the vein of Dead Congregation and the like. From the 'Hexing Graves' intro through the fifth and last track on this release, 'Most Holy Death', Rites of Daath focus on mid- and fast tempos, with some blasts on the one hand, and some doomy parts on the other hand, guttural or shrieking vocals, harsh riffing, pounding bass guitar and drums parts, all immersed in gloomy and sick atmosphere, sounding evil and claustrophobic, and delivering some high quality material that fans of the already mentioned Greeks, but also those of some of the current English, Australian and American death metal acts will definitely love to listen to over and over again. Twenty-plus minutes of uncompromising, relentless and slaughtering death metal - an EP you cannot afford to miss!

"Playing squarely into the tradition of doom-infused death metal that the aforementioned Incantation invented oh-so-many years ago with the back to back classics Onward to Golgotha and Mortal Throne of Nazarene, these Polish heavyweights aren’t afraid to take it low and slow, spending the first quarter of Hexing Graves‘ runtime – the entire eponymous opener and the first two minutes of “Necromantic Rites of the Underground” – building up to the nuclear blast furnace riff that finally hits around the 2:15 mark of track two. Listeners soon have their heads swiveled the other way, though, as Rites of Daath pivots excellently from the crushing heaviness of American death-doom into a fantastic melody that smacks of Swedeath influence, and soon meld the two styles into a track that bridges the two discreet scenes and joins them in a truly unholy matrimony. The three remaining tracks follow suit in their mission of bringing scalding death metal furor to the listener’s ears, and the ensuing 15 minutes that tracks three to five take up are a truly wild ride."

"Polish newcomers Rites Of Daath come up with quite a fascinating mini album. The first few minutes are slow, haunting and gnawing pieces of doom inspired death metal but then suddenly, all hell breaks loose. The tempo goes up - severely - and elements from melodic Scandinavian death metal start blasting through the thick, downtune wall of sound. From then on, Rites Of Daath seem to maintain a firm grasp on the listener with a short but well varied effort. Death metal fans, rejoice, this might as well become one of your new favorites. This is brutal, harsh, relentless and vile, exactly the things you like."
