Behemoth - Arcana Hereticae Lyrics




[Background Lead: Seth]
[Lead: Nergal]

What fool are ye!
From zenith to nadir
Through externalized purity
Dexterity
Sealed ye gates ov your own paradise
Skakti, Kali Ma, Durga Ma
Thou art pure in Thy sinistry

For those who cannot see
The Unconditioned One!
Creatrix, Matrix, Devourer!

[Lead: Seth]

Thee who spits out sun
From thy mouth
In endless momentum -
Kamala's menstruum
On road to immortality
We go against current
To the womb ov Kali
Through the mouth ov Bhairavi
To the final dawn ov Chaos
How come we're still alive?
In these kingdoms ov filth
When heaven's so abstract
And hell is so real...

[Lead: Nergal]

    octavio holguin

    Either way this is the most brutal drummer on the face of the earth.we are all lucky to be here with him.

  46. ZombieLoven

    There is nothing more brutal then "Blackened Death Metal".

  47. fround4

    this album should be compared to Ithyphalic, cause at that point there sound adapted to just pure; Death Metal, almost in dominant to Nile

  48. xXvolhvXx

    @SkullptraTheDJ A Jweish church? You mean a synagogue?

  49. OverGuyThat

    @SkullptraTheDJ I don't think a mortal is allowed to play this song dude.

  50. OverGuyThat

    @Decapitat0r I think we all know now why Germany ended the war.

  51. Planet Johnny

    @BrandonDdrummer I considered covering this on the drums, but I don't want to get my limbs amputated.

  52. Decapitat0r

    @ToddOwns96 Polish

  53. BrandonDdrummer

  54. theairyaquarius

    @sibleywarriors

    Agreed, the first time I heard that part of the song I replayed it like 10 times, awesome :).

  55. opethinchains

    @MKplayer7 i think that was my point.

  56. Ithyphallic

    @opethinchains this is black metal though...

  57. puszkinowski

    the best song on the Apostasy

  58. F00FISH

    The person on the album cover is the drummer

  59. 69smileydeath69

    pure heroine to my veins...

  60. Antek Krakowiak

    Ale oni tam tego Inferno męczą!

  61. opethinchains

    by FAR my fav song by my fav evil band. i dont wanna say black metal band, cause then i'll get bitched at by a bunch of cunt scabs who think they know how to classify every band on youtube. HAIL THE "THE MAN WHO RAPED LEUKEMIA", NERGAL! AND BEHEMOTH!!!!!!!

  62. B H

    @MetallicOpeth George Kollias is undeniably more technically talented than Inferno, but inferno knows how to use that talent to greater effect.

  63. Drew Dowty

    @blastcat999 You get Vader Vesania and Crionics too :( lol

  64. Jack Allen

    the drumming in this song is amazing like the drum solo at 0:46 that would take me forever to learn i guess i should start learning

  65. fonpenbull

    @MetallicOpeth yeah i love inferno and hellhammer is really good too

  66. shamone12345678910

    I swear this entire album does not have one bad song.

  67. StealerAG

    0:47 to 0:49 are the longest and most tasty two seconds I've experienced in music

  68. Ronan .Cooney

    Inferno at 0:47 .Need i say more.

  69. tom5coat

    How come we're still alive?
    In these kingdoms ov filth
    When heaven's so abstract
    And hell is so real...

  88. zenviper

  90. zenviper

    Best drums ever. Thanks for keeping it epic Behemoth, see you soon in LA.

  91. turgore

    i agree ...the end is orgasmic!

  92. gsp1175

    The drumming on this song is ridiculous.

    Definitely one of Inferno's best performances

  93. pissed7off

    Everything Behemoth's done since Satanica (including Zos Kia Cultus) has been death metal.

  94. Norther219

    :42-:50

  95. NOCTURNALxMAJESTY666

    fucking inferno, you are my lord and saviour. fuck jesus, what would inferno do? HE WOULD RAPE THE FUCK OUT OF THIS SONG.

  96. tanman1234543

    their is no satan its a lie

  97. G_Rios7

    Im sorry if anyone else thinks differently, but years from now, im still going to be saying what i saw now. Behemoth has GOT to be one of the, if not THE best fucking black metal band out there. There's been nothing since zos kia cultus that hasnt been qulity perfect along with just...the most fucking amazing black meta songs ive heard.
