Kataklysm - The Awakener Lyrics

[Epoch I - Summon the Legends]

The West wind's erranted breeze swifted by the
vivid Clay.
As the old Batallion of invisible Forests haunt the
sylvan Mount...
And the Avatar was chanelling Yew's wildern-
ess decent Surroundings...
To celebrate an Oath undertaken at his 19th
A Rebirth on the 19th of Febuary 1991.
... This historical Alliance of the Brother Houde;
Set the Gem to summon the Legends...
And the Elixir was delivered to the Royal Clan.
And the Elixir was delivered to the Royal Clan.
A Name, a Shape and a Number was yielded...
From the Exhibited Landscape... From the
Exhibited Landscape,
9 distincted letters were granted into a Word of
Then was graphed the 1st of the 9...
Gates of Kataklysmity.
A 9 pointed Star lodging the 3 crafted Sigils...
From the Darkened Earth. ... From the Darkened
3 Trilogies adding 3 Trinities and 3 Volumes...
The 1st Order of the 9 has begone.

A year will come when 3 Nines will collide...
This year will be 1999.
The 1st Day of Renewal ending the year with this
1st Day of Betrayal... 666 1st
Another Rebirth on the 19th og Febuary 1999...
A Crusader will make, himself heard...
The Awakener... 666 1st.
By the Woods of the Ecclesiastic Houde.
By the Woods of the Ecclesiastic Houde.

Kataklysm The Awakener Comments
  1. MrGaableenz

    Sylvain was the biggest Animal from canadian forests. The band domesticated him to have the most psycho growler.

  2. Максим Лосев

    всякое слушаю, но простите уж, это звуковая каша...

  3. Daniel Telis

    Sylvain houde lml 3:54

  4. Jorge Guajardo

    Tremendo tema con este me crié desde los 10 años eschuchando metalb

  6. 竹田まさお


  7. steph bonnemais

    true kataklysm,best period.

  8. ashleelmb

    This is the most fucked up music video I've ever seen...and not in a good way. It is kinda funny to watch though. Lol

  9. Devin Svennson

    This vocalist could actually write some very esoteric lyrics, instead of the "woe is me, life sucks, I'm going through so much pain" lyrics that Muarizio writes. He should have stuck to bass. The silly melodic metalcore influences dragged it down too. The first 2 albums are where it's at.

  10. Ian Hastings

    Too bad they don't sound like this anymore.

  11. Valliet Hegg

    Ouuuuuu Brutal 👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿

  23. Семён Семёнов

    20 years after.. and I still have no any fokken idea, what kind of demonic shit lyrics is about.
    Poor Sylvaian, he trades his soul to THEM to be the best vocalist of extreme metal.

    My favorite lineup of Kataklysm, so raw and chaotic

  38. Rancid Bowel


  39. Konstantin Gribov

    The best death metal vocal ever!


    Listen band Carcass

    Jarek Chmielewski

    @sukapidrr Carcass has no such level of kataklysmity


    John Tardy has joined the chat

  40. Kevin Uchiha

    Anyone that can recommend a band with similair sounding vocals. Like in 1:34 . He sounds like he is possessed by satan. \m/

    Jaroslaw K

    He sounds like possessed by Satan the whole song \m/

    Thierry Almeida

    @Kevin Uchiha You mean that mix of screams and growls? A lot of grindcore bands do that.

    Thierry Almeida

    Yeah, Lord Worm from Cryptopsy does that. Their music, at least in first two albums, were as chaotic as this early Kataklysm.

    Nicolas Silva

    +bloodOfZodiac aka, early work in cryptopsy, also, he's working on another band, but sucks balls (like new morbid angel)

    Tejano Ray

    try Beherit if you want to hear someone possessed by satan

  66. VDVShaun

    @IWANAROCKYEEEAAAA darklyrics com

  67. blackspells

    Is this version sped up ? I remember seeing that video on TV when it came out and I don´t remember it sounded like that ! Or what´s the story with it ?

    Keith Mjali

    The original vid is slowed down and tuned low, this be audio from the original song.

  68. shockofhyperbole

    @nargarothfreak666 This is melodic death metal and Amon Amarth is melodic death metal; therefore, you can compare the two. They just have a different musical style and lyrical content.

  69. DolleHengst

    Yes, Sylvain is the best DeathMetal singer by far
    and Yes, i would totally do that chick in the video

  70. meshugeah

    Kick Ass!

  71. apologyisnothepolicy

    Dude,thank you so much for fixing the audio,the other(and sadly,the original)version suck ass

  72. FearNoGrave

    Serious business

  73. Márton Hartvig

    Is it true that Sylvain has gone mad after this album? I've heard this rumour a long time ago, and I couldn't find any information on this guy.
