Kyle Such a classic album and the tightest lineup to date. Favorite track: A New Breed of Savior.

Caboose629 Brutally soul-disintegrating music, like a trip to the darkest underworld. The best album from Inferi. Favorite track: A New Breed of Savior.

evan_evone "Allegaeon meets fantasy" is the best description I've heard of Inferi, and this album nails it. Though most of the vocal tracks share a similar structure, the album has enough direction in its tasteful structure to create an interesting, satisfying journey (even with mostly-unintelligible lyrics). Moreover, tracks like The Warrior's Infinite Opus showcase the band's compositional talent in ways the others cannot. I enjoy all of Inferi's work, but The End of an Era is clearly their magnum opus. Favorite track: The Warrior's Infinite Opus.

Golden rooms where fantasies come true flowing wine And women stand in line waiting for you to make up your mind The succubus will bleed you dry, this is the ending of your feeble life Within those chamber walls yield fantasies and lust Cravings beset on those enchanted Expose your weakness and they’ll grind your bones to dust Witness the gatherings in the chambers of madness With intoxicating beauty they hunt at night to find their prey They prowl like wolves in the pale moonlight A scent of seduction makes them so divine Drawing you closer with blinded sight And your instincts overcome, Nothing is left but for you to succumb One by one they lead them into darkness where a chamber waits inside Tempting you with fantasies and filling them with lies Just one taste and then you will begin to close your eyes Within those chamber walls yield fantasies and lust Cravings beset on those enchanted Expose your weakness and they’ll grind your bones to dust Witness the gatherings in the chambers of madness At first glance this seems to be a dream come true Pleasures of the flesh that mere man cannot fathom Unveiling tragedy now torture will ensue Behold the gatherings in the chambers of madness In an instant your pleasure turns into your worst nightmare Darkness, torture, and despair Your stomach turns filling you with fear You can close your eyes but you'll still feel the pain You break your wrists trying to escape from your restraints Witness the removal of your limbs This must be the punishment for all your sins There is no escape from this wretched place You've surrendered your fate to the lust of the flesh They will eat until nothing is left Still alive to see the meat on the bone Ripped and torn for a feast by the throne Of the god who lives for immorality Now is the time for the king to consume all of your remains The sight of someone eating you will drive you insane One final snap will be the end of all your pain Within those chamber walls yield fantasies and lust Cravings beset on those enchanted Expose your weakness and they’ll grind your bones to dust Witness the gatherings in the chambers of madness This brutal end should come as no surprise Vision fading into your own demise If you find yourself within these chamber walls Prepare for the worst, the madness will befall Hidden by their pleasure, the king shall have you all

Fueled by the fury of a thousand men For the lies we have come here to slay thee Justice and revenge set on the wasted blood That flows through the veins of my enemies Break down the doors To the hall of the whores Who've been sent to kill and enslave thee Heroes gone home from battle, they're torn Looking for peace from the enemy Fueled by the agony of a thousand men To save their lives we have come here to slay thee Justice and revenge set on the wasted blood That flows through the veins of my enemies My axe will dine on flesh Whilst my sword is thirsting for blood The slaying, the slaughter, the butchery An endless siege of iniquity Wave after wave we slaughter to save Our brothers restrained through hostility Victims of evil we've come to release Take up your arms and vanquish thee My axe will dine on flesh Whilst my sword is thirsting for blood The slaying, the slaughter, the butchery An endless siege of iniquity Moving from room to room we banish demon souls Taking this den out of their hands place it in our control Resistance is useless no need to fight We gain the upper hand on this fateful night The cowards, they run and they hide Defenseless to our blades they kneel and cry Slit the last throat and see the life fade from there eyes There will be no epitaph there will be no eulogy for you There will be no remains only bones and ash We march through a veil of crimson mist This is the slaughter of a dying race In the eyes of the gods such a pitiful disgrace Extermination of the filth, let the cleansing begin Fueled by the wrath of a thousand men For their souls we have come here to save thee Justice and revenge set on the wasted blood That flows through the veins of my enemies My axe will dine on flesh Whilst my sword is thirsting for blood The slaying, the slaughter, the butchery An endless siege of iniquity Let the cleansing begin

Crucified on his day birth taken to his new master's confines Raised to feed on the souls of the divine But in time he will find the truth is in the back of his mind Raise the veil from his eyes A new breed of savior for all of mankind No one to stand by his side Fed only lies, an evil disguise Now is the time for this hero to rise Calloused hearts and tortured souls Trained him to never turn on his own Cast from the gates deny eternal hate Armed with the flames of hell he slays the wicked and does it well Without a weakness in sight he saves hundreds of humans lives Made a slave, cast away, they betrayed But he saved those who they have enslaved A new breed of savior for all of mankind No one to stand by his side Fed only lies, an evil disguise Now is the time for this hero to rise Callused hearts and tortured souls Trained him to never turn on his own Cast from the gates, deny eternal hate Such a cruel fate for an innocent newborn soul to bear The burdens of a wretched world Fighting the wicked to redeem his name He seeks no fame only his rightful place In a peaceful world free of hate No longer flesh and bone There is nothing that can stop him now His enemies will bow Endowed with the powers of both sides Not by choice, but forced through strife He sheds his mortal life and bares the burden for mankind And cries for all of those who've died It's not his choice to take their lives Crucified on his day birth taken to his new master's confines Raised to feed on the souls of the divine But in time he will find the truth is in the back of his mind Raise the veil from his eyes A new breed of savior for all of mankind No one to stand by his side Fed only lies an evil disguise Now is the time for this hero to rise Calloused hearts and tortured souls Trained him to never turn on his own Cast from the gates, deny eternal hate

I've fought in many battles since the dawn of time Crushing skulls beneath my boots leaving no compromise This is a dreadful fate that thousands have met Living this dreadful life with only one regret This is my sentence of eternity My sentence of eternal life A living hell that has come over me I fear I'll never see the light You must now behold This hell that is my life a story never told An endless circle of regret, I've paid my debt Forever searching for my end, I fear a challenge never met My lust for power was my downfall, my demise I betrayed my brothers while staring them right in their eyes A punishment so cruel one I could never dream of I close my eyes beg for mercy and dream of the heavens This is my sentence of eternity My sentence of eternal life A living hell that has come over me I fear I'll never see the light You must now behold This hell that is my life a story never told An endless circle of regret, I've paid my debt Forever searching for my end, I fear a challenge never met Dying inside someone please hear my cries Ever since the dawn of time I've walked alone traveling the world Searching for the end my only fear is that this is my Sentence of eternal life Someone end it tonight Sentenced to eternal life Its about to end No use for me to pretend Endless hate with no chance of peace Only prayers for my life to cease Suffer unto me know you'll never see the light I am god amongst mankind Suffer unto me know you'll never see the light I am god amongst all mankind

Inside the belly of a beast made of flesh and steel My flesh and blood no longer seem so real Inside this war machine that has blurred my sight Distorting my vision of what's wrong or right Blistering speed with a barrage of no mercy Is the only thing fueling me to breathe I am the future breed created through pure insanity Simply shut off if I decide to think I am the war machine Forced to lead, bleed the weak Led by wicked hearts full of deceit The war machine Blistering speed with a barrage of no mercy Is the only thing fueling me to breathe I am the war machine Forced to lead, bleed the weak Led by wicked hearts full of deceit The war machine All guns are locked and loaded I am the weapon of mass destruction This is the Armageddon of man The time has come to unleash the master plan Devastation and the ruins of man Barren lands and blood soaked hands Seek and destroy all survivors nothing left but sand I am the future breed created through pure insanity Simply shut off if I decide to think I am the war machine Forced to lead, bleed the weak Led by wicked hearts full of deceit The war machine

Faced against many foes, I brandish my steel soaked with the blood of perished souls Engulfed with the flames of both light and dark Redemption is my goal, I must now embark Onward to the highest peak to slay the winged frozen beast He unleashes fury through the heaven’s wind and blistering cold A carousel of winds blinding my surroundings I mount this animal and sever his wings I pierce my blade deep in the heart of this soulless wretched beast, This is his defeat Air, land and sea, Man versus beast These epic battles that man cannot perceive On this voyage of the dead Retrieving all their heads Is the only way to seek out my revenge This quest is not my choice, The gods must hear my voice I must slay all these beasts to bring forth my rejoice In pursuit of the submerged fiend set sail to the deepest sea A beast of proportions that are hard to believe Leviathan, I call forth to summon thee The ocean transforms into a maelstrom The foe reveals himself with a vortex from beneath Striking my vessel with an onslaught of attacks At the point of no return, it would be fatal to turn back Deep below now we shall go To finish this battle in the blackest abyss He opens wide and swallows me whole This is not the end, NO, I must persist Now in the innards of this beast, I refuse to become his feast Stabbing the heart continuously A slain god by the hands of a human being Looking back at my past which is not my own On this quest sent from the highest throne To slay the unholy trinity That has stolen my true identity Now I travel to a far and distant land Which have never seen the prophecies of man To find the entrance held deep beneath the earth And fight the guardian where the demons lurk Inside this lair lies a beast that awaits me Told to have three heads the defender of Hades Heeding his howls, his warnings will follow Refusing this threat my sword he shall swallow Breathing his flames, there burning and scorching Melting my armor and dropping my sword I resort to brute force and break off his horns My end is approaching facing hell's scorn Venturing past the gate to reveal a fiery lake The resting place for a sword used for evil nevermore Air, land and sea, Man versus beast These epic battles that man cannot perceive On this voyage of the dead Retrieving all their heads Is the only way to seek out my revenge This quest is not my choice, The gods must hear my voice I must slay all these beast to bring forth my rejoice With Hades’ blade in hand I make my final stand Cutting at the throat of all three heads Ascend the blade for the heavens to keep I sleep forever as the journey is complete

From the ashes rose a demonic blade Crafted by hatred and sent to enslave Castaway in the deepest cell Guarded by angels from demons of hell Rise from the flames below The blade provides supreme control with powers unknown Hidden from evil to preserve its flame Now is the time to carry out its fate And on that fated day The demons, they came Slaying the angels and stealing the blade Given to a king with a heart of black He gathers his soldiers and prepares to attack Rise from the flames below The blade provides supreme control with powers unknown Hidden from evil to preserve its flame Now is the time to carry out its fate As the fallen ones return to their master They fester in evil and bellow with laughter The angels knew hell shall befall Inside this kingdom of rage His mind becomes deranged With plans of domination To create a demonic nation A land of redemption A land to renew A loss of all kinds Both, wicked and true A storm of darkness fills the sky with destiny The burning gates of the depths of hell will bring A thousand demons rise as one This war has begun the charring of flesh, pure devastation This ancient evil has pleasured my mind Bestowing me power to control all of time Lest I die, all existence is mine Surrender forever With my might, eternal night Enslaved by rage This sword beckons me i foresee fallen kings Release me from my sheath Die by my hand This ancient evil is at my command This blade placed inside my hand Fueling my hatred this will be the end No use, so give in And now just bow your head to your king The flames of this blade will kill everything

The comets fall from out of the sky Destroying the crowns that they love Birthing a famine for all of mankind To feed on the flames from above Erased by darkness Cursed unholy they'll be baptized tonight In the river of blood and be cast from the light [solo - m. Pugh] Their kingdoms crumbled in the blink of an eye Before their prayers were spoken Rest assured the bravest will cry Before the first soul is stolen Helplessly, the sands of time The soul will soon learn to forget in the fire Eternally enslaved The pain will never change Sulfur in the wounds forever FOREVER Bow down before the throne You're cursed unholy Bow down before the throne Your wounds will never heal Cursed unholy they'll be baptized tonight In the river of blood and be cast from the light They see their soldiers falling one by one With darkness rising the battle is not won Every corpse shall rise in effigy of man I command thee Burn it down and build again
