Part three of the trilogy of songs based on the Ugaritic-Canaanite epic "The Baal Cycle", which tells the story of the Levantine god of Thunder and king of the gods Baal Hadad (Haddu) and his sister Anat; the goddess of war, and their clashes and struggles with the god of the Sea Yam (Yammu, Naharu, the Judge) and the prince of the underworld Mot.
This is one of the most important epics in ancient Levantine mythology, equivalent in weight to the Mesopotamian "The Epic of Gilgamesh".
The trilogy consists of the songs:
- Storming the Designs of Yam
- Hosted by Mot
- Ardor of the Destroyer
-- Baal Cycle Trilogy, Pt.3 --
I weep for Baal my brother
My tears like wine I drink
I bid the sun to lift him to me
Mot, has taken him from me
Vengeance for Litan he had
Just as Baal had crushed the fleeting serpent
Destroyer - your flesh he will devour
So that you may in his house forever be lost in disarray
So that the heavens may wither and weaken
On Death, I will bring retribution
His wastelands I will erase
Just as I had finished off the raging sea
Just as we had subdued the seven-headed beast
Just as I had demolished desire, divine calf, the rebel
And as I had put down fire, the bitch Zebub
Vengeance, for the conqueror
Vengeance, for the prince of the people
Vengeance, for the son of Dagon
Vengeance, for the king at Zaphon
And so forth rode Anat from mountain to sea
Yet, on black hearts and deaf ears her plight had fallen
Only by the slaughter of Mot will she bring her brother (Baal) back
from the rotten belly of the dead
Kill Mot, kill Death, kill the rot, kill Death
Mot she torched with fire,
Death she ground with millstones
The rot in the fields she sowed,
for the vultures left; his flesh
And “Flesh cried out to flesh”

Obsequiae is easily one of, if not the best melodic black metal bands out there. Each song is unique in its own way, and deliver a powerful punch to your senses, like a medieval gauntlet straight to your face! The amazing riffs and drum work combined with the use of traditional and historical instruments creates a sound like no other. Oh, and Jake Rogers is a guest singer, so you know this album can only be amazing! Wound of Briccius

Because it's a good album.
I hear Darkthrone is kind of decent, too.
I actually came here to buy the new Inquisition album...got this instead.
Contrary to popular monetary trends...
...the future isn't all just SCREAMING FEMALES-
though I'm excited for their next studio album release as well. Hadleyburg Chef
