Thoughtfulness, the force of his tongue
As the word of Anu, his voice commands
On the waters of the Purattu (on Kar-usakar) he embarks
Adapa, he drifts aimlessly,
and in anger, and in defiance he calls;
Curse the South Wind… Your wings I shall break.
Your brothers whom you command against me, I shall break.
No sooner than his utterance was flung, (for seven earth rounds)
The south wind did not blow onto the land, (for seven earth rounds)
And Anu on his throne, like whirlwind he was enraged
First of the sages, teachers of man, of the sons of Shem
The embodiment of the word of Anu;
his speech on this earth
The architect of the open earth
He who feeds the bolt of Eridu
He who with pure hands sets up the table of offerings.
First of the Apkallu, the mages, givers of the knowledge.
The ancient seer was to stand before Anu
And judgement of the gods was to be given
Ea gave broad understanding (to Adapa)
And gave him wisdom, not eternal life
Ea has made broad understanding perfect in Adapa *
To him he gave wisdom, but not eternal life
The Antediluvian was to stand before Anu
And he the sea had shaken
For he the wind had chained
Adapa - Drink not the water of the gods
Adapa - Take not the food of the gods

Masterful use of acoustic passages and synth stuff. This is definitely my favorite black metal-dungeon synth kinda album I've found recently. Each track flows into the next so well, I cannot recommend it enough. Perri
