Progeny
Celtic Frost Lyrics


I am you
Stillborn
Into this state of being numb
I am the temple and the sacrifice

The shrine, entombed within lies all I am
And you, the womb from whence I came
I am you. If I am you, no life is sacred in my hands
If I am you, no love will prosper in this world
If I am you, I am the faith to end all faith
If I am you, you shall not live to save yourselves
I bring no God, no afterworld
I am no more than a lie

I love your life not for you
I am a throne made from dust.

If I am you, I am the faith to end all faith
If I am you, you shall not live to save yourselves
I bring no God, no afterworld
I am no more than a lie
I love your life not for you
I am a throne made from dust.

For a track, where the writing and production has such a cold and desolate sound there's a lot of feeling in it. The lyrics aching with such a long-standing hate that even that itself is tiring, and a solo so despairing... Hard to put into words but you can't help but be moved by it all.

Vihara2 Wait, seriously? How the hell can you not like To Mega Therion? That entire album front to back is one of the most perfect metal masterpieces ever put to wax...

agreed, this album is one of the only serious black metal albums i still listen to, my tastes are normally softer on the scale of metal.

Real unique guitar tones and riffing, sounds great on top end sound systems, so glad i stumbled into them through Terroriser magazine all those years ago, pity all my attempts to explore the creators discography ended in failure, nothing i liked except for this album.

Great comment. This entire album is "perfectly" dark and dismal. Which is to mean that it is quite an achievement to hit that mark without even a hint of pretentiousness. As for the solo you mention, I knew I had heard that desperate tone somewhere before. Check out Black Flag - Three Nights, another incredibly dark song, just in a sludge-punk kind of way. When the guitar slithers in around 50 seconds, there it is..... The inspiration for the solo in this song.

This song represents how I feel and my coworkers feel about much of the people whom we deal with at work.
