Dawn of the flame The awakening Those who dare to seek the Path of the Wise Revel in the mysteries of Life and Death In deep meditation Channeling forces of nature our vision is clear Mistress of the Words of Power Nourish our spirit with magick To manipulate the essence of the Earth Worshiping the Sun's perpetual sacrifice Occult rites of necromancy Conquering death He shall rise And spawn life from his blackening The age of rebellion "The crowned and conquering child, who dieth not, nor is reborn, but goeth radiant ever upon His Way. Even so goeth the Sun: for as it is now known that night is but the shadow of the Earth, so Death is but the shadow of the Body, that veileth his Light from its bearer."
Death Hex 04:34
Conjuration of wrath and chastisement Projecting ineffable intentions A piercing gaze with eyes of fire Shall be the first sign of the curse Disinterment of emotions concealed Evocation of negative aura Dark current flowing with vehemence Immersed in a vortex of violence Woeful intent from the depths of the mind Manifest in waking consciousness With incense and a ceremonial blade To invoke the powers of Saturn Igniting the black candle Visualizing a somber landscape With the howling of hounds Announcing her presence May all plagues descend upon you Unspeakable horrors and unnamed diseases Left to dwell in everlasting torment Sostengo la guadaΓ±a de la vida y de la muerte Del platino en mis ojos, el mandato Esmeralda!
Ain Soph Aur 05:09
Black emptiness aura Great source of it all Vast ignition of consciousness Intermelded with all, yet they are not Without boundaries or limits, father Chaos of it all Unity of opposites in complete ignorance of differences Ain Soph Aur Limitless light, limitless thoughts, limitless matter of limitless source You writhe our souls towards the negative force The wisdom, the knowledge, the endless and void Keep calling our spirits, our old ancient souls In thee we find our own paths Paths of death and paths of light For Daath calls our names, with eternal intuitive force making its way through old ancient spirits For it doesn't matter how much one fights it or if it's not understood The negative veils of existence, within and without Will never cease its work on our souls Until thou both will unite In eternal fire
Gazing entranced Into a myriad of shifting shapes Your halo of blinding light Mezmerizing yet so revealing Ominous visions We accept the gift of your knowledge Both blessing and curse You have witnessed it all I have seen the manifestations of Hecate Goddess of the three paths Selene Lay down your veil of silver upon us Potnia Theron Master of the wilderness come forth Supernal presence I raise my glance to the night sky To receive unearthly wisdom May your flaming torches be my guide Through this thick fog of poisonous illusions May your flaming torches light the crossroads Leading to the secrets of the Void SepararΓ‘s la tierra del fuego En la detonaciΓ³n del tiempo La fuerte fuerza de toda la fuerza Consuma absoluta la operaciΓ³n del Sol!
IAO 269 04:51
Summoned by inertia Wavelenghts of depraved origin The call of the Void Echoing since inception Transcending in unity The cycle of eternal return Incorporeal death, ceremonial Spiraling outwards infinitely The cult of the Serpent, the Left Hand Path Isis, Apophis, Osiris Earth and Fire becoming one Witchcraft opening the Third Eye Tiphareth Energy in balance Anahata Arcrimony, melancholy, To keep silence The cult of the Serpent, the Left Hand Path Isis, Apophis, Osiris Earth and Fire becoming one The gates open with synergy
Abraxas, the great archon The power above all and First Principle The cause and first archetype of all things Sabaoth, betrayer of Ialdaboath You that gave birth to the mind Cosmic oversoul omnipresent The synthesis of energies Architect of matter Ablanathanalba Semes eilan Abraxas Spirit concealed between light and dark Sun King, holds the key of frequency The cosmic matter that gave us... All in one The crowning of the spheres Force of coagulation Consecration of the Universe Azoth of philosophers Thy golden beam eternal Marches on and on and on -- Guardo en mΓ­ el tempestuoso anillo del fuego La magia oculta del viejo pasajero Corriendo en reversa hacia mΓ­ para siempre Los ojos se tornan blancos ante la gran verdad En 5 puntas perfectas ofrezco el gran pentΓ‘culo humano Apuntando fijamente hacia la infinidad del pensamiento Y los ojos se tornan blancos ante la gran verdad El anochecer es inevitable!!! El gran carruaje anuncia su llegada Iluminando los cielos del rojo platino Que los ojos se inviertan ante la gran verdad Y asΓ­... las estrellas caen a la tierra! Mi cuerpo se eleva ahora hacia lo alto! Alcanzando lo que hay mΓ‘s allΓ‘ del Sol! Y si! Lo veo fijamente cruzando fugaz entre los astros esenciales! Sellando el pacto con el Pleroma Universal! Errantes en lo alto son movidos en el eje los planetas! El Sol es el Padre de la Piedra, la errante Cintia Madre! El cielo se ha tornado rojo y amenazantes espejos emergen de Γ©l! Ventus ventre tulit natum, Terra cibavit eum!
Gazing into evolving fire In me the axis of times I command through vast dimensions A star upon me is sealed In flashes my lightning is clear I behold everything that is A portal of times I carry in A limitless bond of fire and wind The wind bloweth where it listeth But cans not tell whence it cometh Universal synthesis in effect it is When sun entwines with the night Our force is conceived in a cosmic breath Expanding the vision call The wind bloweth where it listeth But cans not tell whence it cometh
Loathing 07:01
Drowning in obscured waters The cold grip of solitude around my neck Paralyzed by this perpetual grief The cloak of sorrow that surrounds me This life is but the eternal celebration of misery Doomed to endure this perennial suffering Wounds that bleed with every step towards nothingness Wander among wastelands Isolated The abyss speaks to those with the ability to listen But as it bestows, so it will deprive Loathing, lamentations A dagger piercing my heart Anguish, desperation Unchaining my essence

Starting off where they left with their last album, the Costarican Corpse Garden naturally evolve and expand their musical horizons, presenting a bolder, much more avantgarde and experimental, even dissonance-based-at-times approach to death metal. While being complex, diversified, trancelike, technical and progressive, with seemingly incongruent elements, riffs, chords, etc., the music actually flows so smoothly you would never imagine. Brutal growls, psychotic howls, shrieks and screams, complex and intricate yet straight-in-the-face and impressive guitar work, jazzy bass guitar parts and most intense yet sophisticated drumming, entangled in a sound as dynamic and massive as the music itself, accompanied by quite philosophical lyrical content and corresponding, extraordinary artwork, all those elements bring to mind such masters as Gorguts, Cynic, Pestilence, Portal, Ulcerate, Howls of Ebb, Irkallian Oracle or... King Crimson. Still, the entire release is a truly unique and original album within the limits of the genre - the further you listen, the more intrigued, impressed and craving-for-more you become. 'IAO 269' is 50 plus minutes of progressive, experimental and atmospheric tech death that appears to be Corpse Garden's opus magnum to date.
