Victorious 03:06
Days that men shall remember Clouds and winds while you hope to die To be an endless divinities chantry Forever unbound in ages Held high the horns Ablaze the sky The steel of conqueror The sumptuous creed The titan’s blood Inside my veins A satin blood Upon my hands Summoning the oaths of the elders The ultimate chants before oblivion Cast into unacceptable defeat The words of whose invoke sacred glory Held high the horns Ablaze the sky The steel of conqueror The sumptuous creed The titan’s blood Inside my veins A satin blood Upon my hands Rivalry among the kings One will stand, one will kill By the will of the Gods... Rivalry among the kings One will stand, one will kill I am victorious.

Into dungeons forbidden to the most Elitist rituals only a few heard of Ascending to a higher power Burn the flame of knowledge through the cult of slaughtered bull The swords we raise in glory The inferior will not be allowed Through strength and chaos the mighty one wipes away Only to regenerate continuously The blood renews itself Continuous change Our god we emulate While we retain the power With iron will, inexorable The inferior will not be allowed Mithra’s will be my will Our ambition the perfection of the soul Through the seven spheres we’ll reborn We drank the blood spilled over from the veins Of the sacred beast, the life-germinating fluid Now the dust of these eroded walls Marks the passing of the time The glorious days have been substituted by the ignorance May the sacred cult rise again.

Chilling screams are ascending higher and higher The final resistance proved vain Slain are the defenders, their blood adorn the streets The temple of Eshmun is in flames Piercing their flesh one by one Rivers of tears, the only affluents left No negotiations to save their souls Empire’s wrath, the touch of hell The deadliest siege ever seen Now this torrid skies will fall like shrouds On a doomed civilization The desert winds will howl among the crumbled walls For ages to come Horrid tales of war will be told In the years to come She thrown herself in the flames After she cut her children’s throat To curse the soil the salt will be rubbed Inside the injuries that will never heal The sands of time reclaim everything A grim preview of a common destiny.

Dying suns are trembling The darkest force advances mercilessly Knowledge is useless in this distorting reality Transcending physical laws, no way back from this domain Where perception is just vanishing recollection Dissolving landscapes Blurred shapes of despair The ground revolts itself as my mind separates from flesh No rectitude could save us now All sins purified The course of time deformed In this epilogue of the events Kronos defeated, all history erased My limbs extirpated Sucked into an paradoxical reality Mutating cells, the deadliest of the embraces When the cosmos itself is swallowed The blasphemy of the void Eraser of the flesh.
5.
For many centuries Far from the sun At one with emptiness The key of the underworld The vision outside Breakdown through space and time Continuum of the void When will it starts? When will we born? To be the rays in the endless light When past and present When future shines To be the end of this sacrificial journey Born Secretly Complete form of death And replace my own Being Shine Endlessly Consume all memories Of the unperfection earth Watch the liquid mornig star Electric parts and atoms feed Suffocate the ice Burn the air Burn the winds Burn the entirety of mankind Burn in molten wax When will it starts? When will we born? To be the rays in the endless light When past and present When future shines To be the end of this sacrificial journey Born Secretly Complete form of death And replace my own being Shine Endlessly Consume all memories Of the unperfection earth.

The empire burns The legacy of chaos is spreading through the lands Thorns of wisdom A progress destined to evolve into madness Melting the bones Of a structure once untouched Fierce rage revamped The ancestral teeth grow again Bastard sons of Gaia It’s own condemnation An epoch of earthly gods ends It’s crimson twilight shines through the cosmic space Among the ruins of paradise Rivers of bloodstream quench our thirst Extracting the blade from the bodies Of those who share our destiny Cleanse this world forever Darkness entangles a path Carved in the flesh of the earth The transition has begun New era is not ours to see Extinction The inevitable end These worn-out columns will crumble to dust Covering our solitude A burial ground for our disaggregation.

The Fist 03:45
I’ve been a warrior since the beginning of time Since the beginning my eyes were of fire Bloody pride, endless line of victims Endless will to be a Demi-God… Demi-God! Bring me heroes for you mortals I rise my sword made of skeletons My fist rises from the hades depths I claim my right to destroy All your multitudes enslaved by power The power of the mighty breed Through the dust, the bones and ruins Only vultures scream as they cut the flesh Thunder words not to forget What’s my name your flesh will know soon! Bring me heroes for you mortals Bring me battles to taste my strength Face the essence of fear The chilling feel to be in front of me.
8.
The tales revealed dark truths My daydreams became blurred and abstract Infinite white distance before me My body is lighter than air Suddenly the earth turns red The ground starts to fade Enormous chasm, the deepest wound My blood is ablaze Sucked into the vortex Is this the Eden they described? Only blood red smoke I can see Demonic tides and ominous lightnings Hallucination Still uncertainty crushes my soul I approach the abyss I’m not alone, shining machines A dark force attracts me An empire of the light In the dark center of the earth My mind librates towards the unknown.
9.
“To the immortals Who dwell beneath I now beg for mercy My mind shall be spared” The horizon is only a pale recollection The dying sun I see no more Replaced by a fluctuating light Blinding entities They rule these planes of existence As I try not to get caught In a pit of desperation They inoculate their chants Under my skin, my senses are weakened Unexplored tunnels of the mind Why do they haunt me? The things I see can’t be true I am caught in a web of illusions The burning depths of Gaia Portals to dimensions unknown Majestic beings made of raw energy They are haunting my dreams The light they emanates is the knowledge Cryptic messages The Hades language Their angelic mouths The sharpest tooth.
10.
The opening of the eyes Their cold mechanic voices in my head The tractor beam inverts its power As a projectile I’m flying toward the outer world An angel in flesh and blood Sent to the most hidden recesses My unaware mission A psychonaut, testimony of a distant dimension Were they real beings Or shining entities spawned by my mind? As I return to the previous reality A bleeding sunlight welcomes me It will never be the same A stranger now I am Their cybernetic hidden world left me irreparable scars The nether gods implants Into my brain and soul The windows I opened cannot be closed There will be a time when I’ll reunite with them My secret I am the Hades Horseman.

CDs & BUNDLES AVAILABLE ON WWW.EVERLASTINGSPEW.COM

One year after the release of the "Seal Of Phobos" EP, the Italian combo Valgrind return with their Old School Death Metal formula full of ripping riffs, harsh vocals and tons of memorable solos for their third full length "Blackest Horizon."

Valgrind was born from the ashes of the ultra-underground act Necrospell in 1993 as a Death-Black project with both extreme and melodic influences. During the following years the band released four demos and developed its own style, combining the main influences (early florida Death Metal) with a strong sense of melody and a passion for the dark atmospheres of bands like Candlemass and early Paradise lost. Valgrind disbanded in 2003, but the strong will to return on stage of both founding member and main songwriter Massimiliano Elia and vocalist Daniele Lupidi (also frontman of Hateful) made the return possible in 2008. 2012 was the year of their debut album "Morning Will Come No More", almost one hour of classic Death Metal, filled with killer solos, memorable riffs and obscure vocals.
With a renewed line-up (featuring Gianmarco Agosti from the italian hardcore legend Raw Power) Valgrind performed at many important shows in Italy, Germany, Holland and Sweden. In 2013 the band started working on the new album, entitled "Speech of the Flame", a very aggressive, yet diverse and dynamic collection of songs. The music strays away from the early influences to become more personal, while the lyrical concept deals with the darkest sides of the ancient mediterranean civilities.
in 2016, Umberto Poncina (ex-member of Unbirth/Demiurgon/Saturno) replaced Massimo Vezzani and contributed to the realization of the EP "Seal Of Phobos" that was released in 2018 for Everlasting Spew Records as a sort of appetizer for "Blackest Horizon."

For fans of Pestilence, Monstrosity, Nocturnus, Morbid Angel.
