Knowest thou How to treat The bodies of the dead? Knowest thou How to avert Befouling Zam and Atar? Knowest thou That deep in the North The underworld lies? Knowest thou It is there The demon Druj Nasu lurks? From Aresura she comes In the guise of a fly Shield the corpse From the defiling power Of the daeva Of bodily uncleanness Druj Nasu Earth and Fire never to be unclean Do not inhume Nor cremate Do not contamine The sacred elements Excarnate Deliver the body unto the sky To the place of the dead The Tower of Silence Grotesque beings descend From the steel blue heavens Wide wings cast a shadow on the dusty desert ground Eery shrieks, spectral cries Sharp claws and eager beaks Fulfilling a ritual roll On the Tower of Silence Bones defleshed Carrion barley Eager vultures A favourable omen Hawks and crows Next in line Shattered bones All is gone

Upp på fjället I midnattssolens land Upp på fjället ylar vinden evigt Upp på fjället gisslar snön oändligt Upp på fjället under Norrskenets dans Upp på fjället långt ifrån Guds nåd Upp på fjället var klockorna ej hörs Upp på fjället lever ett utdöende släkte Upp på fjället begärs färskt blod De befallde henne att gå ner till källan för att hämta vatten men hon kom aldrig tillbaka Spårlöst försvunnen; bortförd blev hon en mörkrädd piga bergtagen av ett troll Gärna bjöd trollet på en motbjudande måltid grodor och slingrande ormar Men hon såg bara läckerheter Ett djävulskt sätt att få makt över en att fastna ett offer för evigt och alltid Det var hennes tragiska öde Av henne fick man aldrig höra mer

Peut-on illuminer un ciel bourbeux et noir ? Peut-on déchirer des ténèbres Plus denses que la poix, sans matin et sans soir, Sans astres, sans éclairs funèbres ? Peut-on illuminer un ciel bourbeux et noir ?

Another life comes to an end Like a gust of piercing, cold wind Blowing out a flickering candle Leaving nothing but dispersing smoke Life can be reignited, Like glowing embers Restarting a cycle Of pain and agony Death is no escape Offers no peace Nor stillness It is but a portal To another existence Of prolonged torment In a new material form Subject to misery Encasing a lacerated soul Break the circle of suffering Reject rebirth! Enlightenment is yours to take At the moment of your death! Five basic elements dissolve Flesh, fluids, heat, breath, your bodily complexion Earth into water Your body is burdensome Water into fire Circulation stagnates Fire into air Warmth and growth disappear Air into ether Contact with the world dissipates Enlightenment or insanity? Pain and pleasure coincide Clarity transpires Experience the six realms of the world Enlightenment Transcend reincarnation!

Subjugated, enslaved Extorted, coerced In this wretched life and the next Drudging for the powers that be Under an iron secular rule and the prospect of eternal hellfire This vile age of servitude has now come to an end The hand, once forced to serve Turned into a clenched fist Oh behold the arrogance of the elite On this sacred Easter day Believing that threats still have value That mere words will cause peasants to flee Denying the fierce determination In the hearts of men who want to be free Death - as a welcome alternative To a long life as slaves Oh siehe, die Arroganz der Elite An diesem heiligen Ostertag, Sie glauben, dass Bedrohungen immer noch Wert haben, dass diese bloßen Wörter Bauern veranlassen zu fliehen, den harten Willen leugnen werden in den Herzen von Männern, die frei sein wollen. Der Tod - als willkommene Alternative zu einem langen Leben als Sklaven! Your precious gold Holds no value to us Heroic knights slaughtered Greedy soldiers massacred The noble count begging and pleading But to no avail, for death awaits! Axes and pitchforks are raised A gruesome honorary hedge The piper plays The Last Dance As the count takes his final steps

about

After three long years, Entartung finally returns from the ominous shadows to which they silently retreated after the release of their prior opus, “Baptised into the Faith of Lust”. It is fitting that, in a new age of plague and pestilence, their newest album “Maleficae Artes” (Lat. “Dark Arts”) is unleashed upon the world.

The elaborate compositions on “Maleficae Artes” are deeply and firmly rooted in the early 90's atmosphere and remain true to the original spirit of black metal. Brooding, sinister, violent and menacing themes presented by the trademark icy riffing of Lykormas and the militaristic and deadly precise battery assault of Haistulf manifest themselves in a dynamic interaction with acoustic and martial touches of melancholy and gloom.

The lyrical subject matters explored on “Maleficae Artes” are devoted to death, the Faustian spirit, ancient rituals and traditions and the darker chapters of human history; enhancing the experience in a synergetic fashion.

The cover artwork, which conceptually is in unison with the album title, is a modified painting by Salvator Rosa. It illustrates a Biblical episode where king Saul summons a spirit with the help of a witch - directly violating Mosaic Law that demanded the death penalty for necromancy.
