about

Morgengrau Austin, Texas

From the furnace of Texas comes Morgengrau, death metal forged in the fires of the old ways. Taking inspiration from such masters as Asphyx and Immolation, Morgengrau rolls in on treads made of memorable riffs and punctuated by fearsome, Hell-spawned vocals paying honor to the occult, to horror, to death. To listen is to be drawn down the dark Extrinsic Pathway.

Hail metal, hail death!

Track Name: Extrinsic Pathway
The end of days
A horn sounds
Blood is running on the wind
On a hill my Master stands
Terminal destruction

In His hands, the world falls down
Scarlet beasts drop to their knees
The slender Ibis bends her head
As He snaps her neck

In the Abyss, into the Non
Where everything and nothing exists
Shades await birth or consumption
Standing baffled, the penitent cry
While the unrepentant take up swords
While over all, He prevails

Here I stand
Gore-clothed and grinning wide
My fists are clenched with the lust for annihilation
When I sprang from the forehead of your whimpering god
The earth did crack and seas did run with blood

In the Abyss, into the Non
Where everything and nothing exists
Shades await birth or consumption
Standing baffled, the penitent cry
While the unrepentant take up swords
Over all, He prevails

Stand! Extrinsic Pathway
Shed! Extrinsic Pathway
Track Name: Antithetical
Oh Samael, Take me into your fire,
Burn me with your elemental gaze
Evaporate my wickedness,
Consume my ragged soul
Lion-headed snake of a thousand fangs

Clutching the scaled and slippery mane
Suppurate blindly in lust
Every inch a gleaming, staring eye
As sky becomes the underworld
While inside is turned into out
Through deification, I seek the lie

Come to me, Samael
Bringer of death antithetical
Come to me, Samael
Destroyer of worlds
Come to me! Samael

Oh multiwinged Metatron the sage
Warns of horrors now found striding forth
On eye bound feet, but seeing none
The blind god is on the rampage
This manifestation of a deformed birth

The King of the Watchers steps aside
From this visage perverse and befouled
Collecting the souls of all the tempted dead
I see his light, desynthesis
Rotting me from the within
Awaiting rebirth with festering monstrous dread

Come to me, Samael
Bringer of death antithetical
Come to me, Samael
Destroyer of worlds

Come to me! Samael
Holy god antithetical
Come to me!
Antithetical
Track Name: The White Death
In the snowfield, blind from the white
The breath of the prey is a cloud
Of smooth mist vapor and shambling gait
Observed from beneath a cold shroud

Still is the terror that lies in the ice
Of muscle, of brass and of bone
Awaiting the moment of absolute calm
His focus, the quarry, alone

All fear the White Death!

The last moments, dead in the sights
The prey turns his face to the sky
Sensing the danger, but blind to it all
A shot between heartbeats as time freezes still
Then he dies...

All fear the White Death
Certain as the winter’s breath
Track Name: Choking Grove
Desperation, suffocating breeze
Withered grasses of mechanical disease
One hundred thousand soldiers choking on their tongues
Convulsing end of horror worse than from the guns

Ferrous germination
Iron seeds of death
Unseen creeping promise
War’s tortured breath

Four generations later, rotting in the ground
The woods of Belgium, an unholy burial mound
Chlorine and phosphate and the cloying Yperite
Till your fields in a game of dark roulette

Hellbound harvest
Unwanted fear
If silence is golden
The rainbow ends here

Twisted bodies
Blue and dead
Foul gaseous ravage
The streams run red

Hidden in beauty
The cancer grows
Autumn revealing
The choking grove
Track Name: Grave of Lies
Oh the pain, it boils
Burning in my brain
The weight, it pulls
Drags me down again
Your faith, I see
Is only made of lies
Which do not matter to me

I am the All
Black unholy brand
Your flesh, so weak
Victorious we stand
The price I pay
To live within this Death
So take me down to your grave

Through this surge
Slickened by your tears
We break the backs
Consummate your fears
Above, below
Deep within your heart
We chew like rats to the core

Expose, unlight
Haemorrhaging wounds
The End is near
Celebrate the doom
Kneeling beneath the ebon headed goat
Anoint me in blood and bile

Grave of Lies
Track Name: Chemosh Enlighten
I sense a timeless pain
Where every greeting is a death
The slow panic of ticking clocks
Thy eyes, dark with fire
What are the mysteries of thy mind
Drifting aimless between the dunes

My demons hide in the sand
Yet on my breast I wear them proud
I know of no other way
Creeping horror too great to bear
I see thy shades, they speak to mine
Brother Chemosh, enlighten me

Ah these scars
They are my god

So at last we are constrained
To struggle madly against the odds
Our burning darkness the only light
So I stand in the stinging wind
The gates before me, an open maw
Brother Chemosh, enlighten me
Track Name: Polymorphic Communion
Slow infect, decompose
Reconstruct, consume
Abhor the Singular
Erase the Self
Pervade the Flesh
Lie in wait
Absorb
Exalt the One
Foreign vector, twisting cells
Conjoined form
Bleeding a lifeline
Intertwined, simplify
Conjugate
Polymorphic Communion

Enlightened form
Perfect the flesh
Enlightened being
Erase the flaw
Conjoin with me
Beget madness
Conjoin with us
Be part of All

Conjoin!

No escape!

Become... the Many
Become... Take communion

Infect (Become)... the Many (the One)
Infect... Rape communion
Infect (Become)... the Many (the One)
Infect... Raping communion
