Spoon I was expecting this album as soon as I heard that Heretic Prime will experiment some of Ironhand's tracks in a more Metal way. I was a little bit disappointed in the end as I didn't heard any big difference with the originals. Maybe I was anticipating too much from the band. The final product is brutal enough. 'Digital Hitler' is a killer track and I'm eagerly looking forward to their future stuff. Favorite track: Digital Hitler.

about

Mankind has always searched the unknown in the hopes of discovering answers; and every so often what is found is more terrifying than what the mind and dreams could ever foresee.

Sarcophagic are patients at Xperiment XIII and what I have discovered is as beautiful as it is terrifying. They blend metal with electronic hell to create black magic music to soothe, or antagonize the very beast within that we try so hard to hide.

Their soundscape pulls every horror imaginable to the surface. The shadows come alive with dancing nude angels whose disfigurements and weeping wounds beckon your unbridled attention.

Yes you are in for a ride of your life. A ride that will consume you from the very first offering...

There are two options for you to get your hands on this horror orgasmic bending music. There is the Limited Edition CD Package that is limited to only 50 and comes with extra goodness and a more complete experience. Then there is the standard version that is the exact music goodness with no extra goodness.

Digital Versions are FREE with every Physical CD order.

If you only want digital then you can opt for this option above. It's a shame as the physical gives you a piece of history you can hold. Think of it as a backup for when your PC gets blue screen of death.

about

Sarcophagic Dunellen, New Jersey

Sarcophagic formed in January of 2013, in the trio of Heretic Prime, Rob Samhain, and Rage. Initially cutting their teeth on tracks from Heretic’s solo project IRONHAND, the band quickly found their way into unbelievably dark territory, exploring the themes of death, insanity, and other forms of misanthropy. ... more

Track Name: Satan und Gott
SATAN UND GOTT
(music and lyrics by heretic prime)

i am the sinner king, thoraxus maximus
i pull the worst of right out of all of us
i am the ironhand, i bring the endtimes faster
i am the son of man, the bastard blasphemaster
i free the devil from the hell who the cattle fear
to rape the world and the souls that still wander here
i plant the seed of deceit in the sinner tree
inject the poison in the son of humanity

satan und gott, satan und gott
the right hand and left hand combine to form i am

i am the one who spits words that are sacrilicious
devouring the holy lamb that is so delicious
i am the vicar with the hammer that empowers me
to crush the drones that were built in my factory
i am the fear negator, the evil elevator
no point to run away, ill kill you sooner or later
consume the fear that i hear when you weaklings pray
fall to your knees in dismay on your judgement day

satan und gott, satan und gott
the right hand and left hand combine to form i am
god

drink my words and breathe my smoke
the time has come your faith has broken

satan und gott, satan und gott

give me all you hold inside you
for ive not a thing within
wrap your bloody arms around me
show me what its like to feel alive

satan und gott, satan und gott
the right hand and left hand combine to form i am
satan und gott, satan und gott
the right hand and left hand combine to form
i am god
Track Name: First Cut - Skrik Pt I
FIRST CUT (SKRIK PT. I)
(music by sarcophagic, lyrics by rob samhain)

because pain is life
and yours is forfeit

ive never heard a scream as beautiful as yours is
ive never heard a scream as lonely as yours is
ive never heard a scream as jarring as yours is
but now i have and i only want more

skrik! the knife across the bone goes
skrik!

because pain is life
and yours is forfeit

ive never seen blood flow as freely as yours does
ive never seen blood flow as loudly as yours does
ive never seen blood flow as peaceful as yours does
but now i have and i only want more

skrik! the knife across the bone goes
skrik!
Track Name: Hammer
HAMMER
(music and lyrics by heretic prime)

how easy they fall into holy violence
belief is the law, absolute compliance
so tell me youre pure, tell me youre brave
tell me im heathen and need to be saved
youre nothing but weak, you pathetic whore
ill give you your rapture, the endtimes and more
show me this father, show me a god
if he has such power it shouldnt be hard
beating your bibles dont mean a thing
so throw down your hammer and prove it to me

...and as they fall theyre praying me
how easy they fall into holy violence
belief is the law, absolute compliance

my world, my home, my tomb
there is no place for you
crack the earth, smash the stars
boil the sea, forever more

how easy they fall into holy violence
belief is the law, absolute compliance
so tell me youre pure, tell me youre brave
tell me im heathen and need to be saved
youre nothing but weak, you pathetic whore
ill give you your rapture, the endtimes and more
show me this father, show me a god
if he has such power it shouldnt be hard
beating your bibles dont mean a thing
so throw down your hammer and prove it to me

prove it to me
show me your god
Track Name: My Factory
MY FACTORY
(music and lyrics by heretic prime)

the world came into existance
and there arose a builder
his will was like water
his hands were of iron
and built a grand factory
where all his children would born
and become enslaved

lies are born and soldiers forged
recruitments of reassurance whores
its here we are made in my factory
poisoned with theistic plague
awaiting still their judgement day
its here we are made in my factory

the vicar sees them on their knees
praying to a nothing and their labor fuels his will
to spread his love for us all
but no they always say no
needles on the floor unlock the door to obedience
now spread his love for us all

these
lies have been born these soldiers are forged
these battalions of manniquins cannot be ignored
its here we are made in my factory
the jesuit cried their potential then died
and everything that followed is my beautiful crime
its here the faithful prayed in my factory

in these cyclic minds come hate to call me reprobate
but theyre always late its already done
manufacture malevolence
and the cycle of hate comes full circle

lies are born and soldiers forged
recruitments of reassurance whores
its here they are made in my factory
poisoned with theistic plague
awaiting still their judgement day
its here they are made in my factory

wove to serve the sinner king
and any blight that he may bring
its here you were made
in my factory
Track Name: Digital Hitler
DIGITAL HITLER
(music and lyrics by heretic prime)

ive got the voice that kills your god
your death is real but he is not
i cannot wait to watch you rot
the time is right, the hour's late
and the music's here, i must create
all the notes and words i must dictate
so i set up camp and concentrate like a

digital hitler
a digital hitler
a digital hitler

they goebbels up my words just like communion
completely unware of impending doom and
drunken on the holy lies theyre so entagled in im
gonna scar-spangle you and mangle you like mengele
it doesnt take a brilliant mind to fight them
im sheparding the shitheads like im adolf eichmann
noses held higher then the veins of goering
at my whim they’re just like himmler send their ashes soaring like a

digital hitler
a digital hitler
a digital hitler

and all the faithful sing:
sieg heil, single file, worship a deity so vile
tepid lies, feasting flies
its all the same when in the name of christ sing

digital hitler
a digital hitler
a digital hitler
Track Name: All in Ashes
ALL IN ASHES
(music and lyrics by heretic prime)

pulling the worst part of me from my heart
feed all my malice to mankind

i pull the last tree from on high
and carve a cross to crucify
i raise my hands up to the sky
the clouds then part and we all die
no one is safe, no one is saved
ignored are all the prayers you made
yet they all still cling to their faith

each one of you, reduced to ash
the lives of men, can never last
reverse psycho logic hollow caustic feed my will
and when the world's undone
ill have but one more to kill

they bled for days as rain came down
and washed all their blood away
yet they all still clung to their faith

each one of you, reduced to ash
not one of you, will see this passed
reverse psycho logic hollow caustic feed my will
and when the world's undone
ill have but one god to kill

is this what you prayed for?

each one of you, reduced to ash
the lives of men, can never last
reverse psycho logic hollow caustic feed my will
and when the world's undone

ill have but one more to kill
Track Name: Violence
VIOLENCE
(music by sarcophagic, lyrics by heretic prime)

the violence is supreme here

see it in my eyes
endless like skies
and you know why the
violence is supreme and here til we die

the violence is obscene here

now the killings 'bout to start

violence surpassed supremacy
and entered realms of majesty
what god allows this tragedy
played out in utter lunacy

the violence is divine here

the more i hunger, the more i eat
the more i hunger, the more i eat
the more that i eat, the more i hunger
the more that i eat, the more i hunger

i am a
post modern sadist turn your murder into art and you are
this hunters latest now the killings 'bout to start i am a
post modern sadist turn your murder into art and you are
this hunters latest now the killings 'bout to start

violence is supreme
the violence is supreme
violence is obscene
the violence is obscene
violence is divine
the violence is divine
violence it is mine
the violence it is mine

more that i hunger the more that i eat
the more that i eat then the more that i hunger
more that i hunger the more i eat
the more that i eat then the more that i hunger
Track Name: In Fire
IN FIRE
(music by sarcophagic, lyrics by heretic prime)

i was born in shallow ashes mixed with mud dusted with lime
drenched in sin that dwells within us all that shows its face in time
i am hate intoxicated only slaked with death sublime
weilding anger like a sword thats caked with fetid rotting grime

i was born in fire

humanity needs to invent new words to describe my hate
decomposure tested with the corpse of our impending fate
knees are scabbed from genuflection upon the hymns i dictate
i am sending death unending infinite in a figure eight

i will live in fire
we will die in fire

leave this world in fire
raining down in fire
cleansing us in fire
casted down in fire

raining down on everyone, kill us, now kill us
Track Name: Field of Human Candles
FIELD OF HUMAN CANDLES
(music by sarcophagic, lyrics by heretic prime and rob samhain)

we were children in innocence and life was a game
the grass was our dance floor in carefree adventures
sun on our faces light up the countryside
burning out our youth in the fields like human candles

and how i will always remember us like that
i promise ill smile when i think of us

our parent's faces all took a shade of fear
predjudice crushed all our make believe kingdoms
hid from the inevitable, under floorboads
our whimpers and shivers all gave us away

and i know that we will meet again
burning out our youth in the fields like human candles

maybe one day we'll play together again
and i know that we will meet in the sun
maybe one day we'll play together again
burning in the field of human candles
Track Name: Last Embrace - Skrik Pt II
LAST EMBRACE (SKRIK PT. II)
(music by sarcophagic, lyrics by rob samhain and heretic prime)

ive never heard a scream as beautiful as yours is
ive never heard a scream as lonely as yours is
ive never heard a scream as jarring as yours is
but now i have and i only want more

skrik! the knife across the bone goes
skrik!


ive never seen blood flow as freely as yours does
ive never seen blood flow as loudly as yours does
ive never seen blood flow as peaceful as yours does
but now i have and i only want more

skrik! the knife across the bone goes
skrik!

because pain is life
and yours is forfeit

when im killing you its not hostility its intimacy

skrik! the knife across the bone goes
skrik!
Track Name: Pile of Butterfly Wings
PILE OF BUTTERFLY WINGS
(music and lyrics by heretic prime)

a narcissistic gaze
the blurring of the days
the numbness of your ways
the coward in you prays
with no one that can hear
delusion in your fear
and it has become clear
theres no humanity here

watching, their time decaying
waiting, but just delaying
hoping, the light is dying dying
praying

wasting, the minutes passing
writhing, bodies amassing
rotting, as i keep laughing laughing
dying

seeing, but never learning
believing, theyll soon be burning
being, but never growing higher
grieving

worthless, common and vapid
targets, with minds so tepid
meat for, im oh so hungry hungry
harvest

as i watch, all the ants, as they writhe
and i know, with their lives, they shall tithe
all the same, so pathetic, without worth
i shall pluck, them like petals, off the earth

and every day that passes by
i pull the wings off butterflies
they whisper your name in pain
whisper your name in pain

and everything i tried to be
now victim to misanthrophy
and caught in a hunters game
theyll whisper your name in pain

all that i have in me
drunken on apathy
pulling the very worst parts from out of me
laughing as my tears fly
a devastated smile
this will come to pass no matter how hard
no matter how hard i try

and the soul, leaves my eyes, for a night
just a stare, no compassion, in this might
and my prey, doesnt even, have a chance
once selected, then dissected, in this dance

and every scream that passes by
i pull the wings off butterflies
the pieces they snap and writhe
bodies all break and die

the stainless steel on which they lie
now drowned in crimson holy wine
the rain that puts out this fire
rain will put out this fire

rain
it will rain and rain

worked my art so viciously
what they were, now history
intoxicating victory
of a night that no one will ever see

as i come back down to earth
burying the pieces of them in the dirt
human again, with ammunition to fake another day
amongst all my prey

and every day that passes by
i pull the wings off butterflies
they whisper your name in pain
whisper your name in pain

and everything i tried to be
now victim to misanthrophy
and caught in a hunters game
theyll whisper your name
in the rain

and into the pile
the ever growing pile
and into the pile
and my widening smile

whisper in pain
whisper in the rain
whisper in the rain
