Asphyx - Death... The Brutal Way lyrics


01. Scorbutics

cleaving, pounding forsty waves
heading for the south
a three-master manned with buccaneers
scourges of the new world
recognize no law
brotherhood of hardened privateers
jolly roger fluttering
shameless and scornfull
40 loaded beauty guns on deck
tortuga awaits them
trenches, rum and gold
the captured frigate on its way back

their last raid succesfull
all holdings stuffed with loot
the merchant vessel never stood a chance
no quarter was givven
pennon colourd red
stabbing, guttering as its code demands
the portugese was scuttled
leftovers for the shards
great whites feeding wild on piracy
after the wine and bloodfloabs
they sleep off their debauch
speeding on the flush of victory

then all of the sudden breaking weather
puts an end to their prosperity
entering weeks of steerless
aimless floating
in the calm and the merciless heat
rapidly provisions are decreasing
no more fruit and vegetables to eat


ravaging, the terror of the scuruy
fluid creatures begging for their god
intestinal haemorrhages
bones wasting away
corroding gristle, urinating blood
fatiguing insomnia, teeth and hair fall out
the rancid stench of living human rot


raving in delirious desperation
the last of the freebooters slowly dies
amongs the pus, blood, bones and bodies
seagulls swallowing dead gazing eyes

02. The Herald

the heralds 's arrival
from beyond outer spheres
forecasting damnation
doomsday is near

hear his words of wisdom
truthteling prophet
his appearance followed by
the dark cloak of death

in pathetic disputes
a race for oil and gas
cremating in the cauldron
incinerating fast
arctic shrinkage
drastic alteration
chawing permafrost
subsurface refridgeration

poles are melting
a cascading release
mankind's drowning
in oceans of tears

reaching critical stage
glacial minimum
high-explosive event
ignite the methane bomb
save humanity from pain
in afterlife fantasia
spare the species their suffering
with global euthanasia

03. Bloodswamp

several days of panic
since the great escape
a fugitive moving
through an unknown landscape
persecutors hunting
with stubborn resolution
running, drudgeing, stumbling
unbearalbe exhaustion

exotic flora changing
black vegetation
curse of mother nature
botanical mutilation
thicket suddenly ending
insanity revealed
reaching from east to west
such horror unreal

face the bloodswamp
this boiling pool
steaming perversion
a bubblig brew

foul creation
stinking few
so warm and damp

wading through the liquid
sink into the gunk
vomiting from the nose
as blood fills up your lungs
spitting out red dirt
thickened filth you gulp
death the desgusting way
choking in the pulp

04. Death... The Brutal Way

Krushing at the Party San, hear the hordes rejoice
Filth to feed the Vermin, 'n beer to oil the voice
We'll beat your eardrums useless, and tie you on the Rack
Bones and nerves are grind to pulp, we are fucken back
Again we set the standards, get the message clear
Leave the fucken stage bitch, no room for you here
Mercy won't be given, as we enter our domain
Endlessly you'll suffer, on the altar of pain

Merchants of brutality, death our only rule
The doctrine of true metal, gods of the old school
Die by fucken Asphyx, ultra loud we slay
Skinned alive you humbly beg for death the brutal way!

Pouring molten mayhem, controllers of the saw
A liquid iron overdose, we'll have it fucken raw
Never shown respect for ya, spitting on your age
Turn the spotlights on, unleash the monsters from their cage
Feel the trembling earth, eating away your dignity
Watch the blood pour out as you lose virginity
We don't need no make-up, slugs from armored stacks
Honest to the core as we make you bastards crack

Merchants of brutality, death our only rule
The doctrine of true metal, gods of the old school
Die by fucken Asphyx, ultra loud we slay
Skinned alive you humbly beg for death the brutal way!

Hitting pandemonium, bring the sacrifice
Swallowing this dish of steel, diving in dry ice
Razorblades cut through your skull, painful as the pox
We'll break the fucken speed of light, the afterlife will shock
Order will be chaos, the watcher now will see
Born for immortality, eternity will scream
Pouring molten mayhem, controllers of the saw
A liquid iron overdose, we'll have it fucken raw

Merchants of brutality, death our only rule
The doctrine of true metal, gods of the old school
Die by fucken Asphyx, ultra loud we slay
Skinned alive you humbly beg for death the brutal way!

05. Asphyx II (They Died As They Marched)

early morning
call the roll
from the barracks
in the cold
weary faces
tired men
all prepare to
leave the camp

growling watchdogs
snarling guards
off they marched
snow starts falling
severe frost
hostile country
hope seems lost
silent ribbon
shuffling feet
drink icicles
nothing to eat

sleep whilst morning
with open eys
from the bitches
the frozen cry

column breaking
comrades crawling
forgotten chapter
tragic night
on this route
many died

06. Eisenbahnmörser

seismographic perception
as this monster rides
iron wheels with bars of steel
a presence of pure might
offspring of the melters
born in the forge
assembling nails, rolled out rails
the son of mother war

roaring over battlefields
weaken the enemy
shape of solid alloy
breathing hostility
a gross violator
the core of destruction
giant railwaymortar
father of all guns

terrifying arrogance
frightening his grace
huge machine, staring mean
death in her pale face
lowering the barrel
fed by well-trained hands
await the first cracking burst
at the final command

blazing fire
debut round
lumbering recoil

screaming sound
16 gunners
grease and sweat

glowing lead
large projectiles
red hot shells
an infernal
burning hell
split the earth crust
bring the ordeal

operatin distance
around 6,5 km
munition carriers supply
anti-concrete granates
assumed secure bunkers
in the reinfoced stronhold
explosions shredding armour
nullify safe vaults

all defense now broken
by the grand device
smoldering ruins, shattered tombs
that once were fortified
the bombardment ended
conquering mastodont
a majesty, in victory
the terror of the front

07. Black Hole Storm

a primitive phenomenon
unknown in theory
bursted from its quasar
erractic mystery
ouf of the supernova
comes whate no-one could suspect
invisible interior
mortals can't detect
supermassive entity
primordial force
chaos in cosmos
upturn physical laws

celestial bodies
in orbid collide
satellites are drawn into
the continuum inside
absorbing any matter
interstellar dust
univeses torn apart
galaxies combust

black hole storm
black hole storm
black hole storm
extinguish suns
black hole sun

bursting protoplasma
thermal energy
solar radiation
crushing gravity
inside event horizon
a surface in spacetime
lies the point of no return
where no light can shine
mass devouring voyager
consume infinity
deafening roaring silence
ending eternity
vanishing in darkened spheres
the final glowing sun

compressed to zero volume
all nuclei are gone
black hole storm

08. Riflegun Redeemer

all this abuse ad nauseam
injustice is the rule
serious avenging time
with my retaliating tool
sufficient ammunition
that can split a man in two
i'll make myself legendary
with what I'm about to do

stockbrokers and shareholders
make the exchange collapse
the bastards now in panic
lose their beloved cash
persionfunds now emptying
the old will not get paid
i'll shoot all those responsible
a righteous burst of hate

dirty psycho cockroaches
ruining your life
touch your precious children
abusing your wife
pedofiles and rapistes
society's lowest scum
have this dose of therapy
as I fire my gun

the barrel glowing form the heat
eradicate these thugs
useless human garbage
die in this rain of slugs

pump their goddamn bowels out
brainsmear on the wall
bonsplinters and burning meat
grind kneecaps and balls

mismanaging executives
but the cunts don't care
mass dismissing companies
leave you fucking there
fat on a golden bandshake
blast away their heads
detonate my extra bonus
retirement in lead

every week another tar
demands behind your door
working hard for nothing
can't take it anymore
I'll pay the fucks a visit
paint the building red
blow the leeches full of holes
make sure they stay dead

09. Cape Horn

a trader leaving harbour
farewell waving hands
set course with godspeed
to far promising lands
the sun is mildly shining
sails bulging in the breeze
an expedition seeking
free passage to the east

in south atlantic waters
crossing the exquator
passing patagonia
and sierra del fuezo
screams come from the crow's nest
his horrid obscuration
the sight of the flying dutchman
portent of damnation

sailor's nightmare
ship of ghosts
fearsome traveller
curse of boats
dead man's island
hell begins
down-pour rain
hhowling winds

inconstant currents
waves like walls
floating icebergs
polar squalls
blustering maelstroms
furious storms
seamen's graveyard
'round the horn

looming up at starboard
monolithical form
seafarers fall on their knees
as they behold cape horn

months now lasts the effort
they have lost all hope
a dancing wreck of splintered wood
Icing on the ropes
the craft battered and broken
crew drowning like rats
their shattered galleon sinking
into mysterious dephts

10. The Saw, The Torture, The Pain
