    German traditional Black Metal Band ILLUM ADORA attack with their debut album "...of Serpentine Forces".

    Signed to German FOLTER RECORDS; the band is ready to unleash their first album unto mankind. Hurricane Hellfukker (vocals, ZARATHUSTRA) and with the help of Mortüüm (drums, COUNTESS), Shargaz Isidor (all guitars) and Jormundgand (bass) the band created a tribute to the 1990s Black Metal, doing their very own interpretation of how it has to sound. It appeared to be a 9 track debut album with a running time of 41 minutes of varied and atmospheric music that serves the old purpose of the old underground scene! The vinyl version is strictly limited to 250 copies and comes with a 4 pages LP-sized inlay! The album was professionally mastered by Patrick W. Engel at TEMPLE OF DISHARMONY in August 2018!

Track Name: Dominions of Spheres Beyond
From spheres beyond
The universe's last breaths
Creation’s light retracts its boundaries
For dark medieval times

Should dead birds find rest in the sky
Planets collide, Solar systems drown,
Galaxies destroyed, Gases swirl, Masses disorder
No order versus creation’s chaos

From spheres beyond
The universe's last wakes
Nothingness continuing to chase the end of light
For dark medieval times

Should dead birds find rest in the sky
Stars burn, Planets rage
Skies darken and attacking the surface
Two souls share a dream and end a journey
At the epitome of insane

And if from majesty of infernal darkness
Oppressing mortal sense, my death proceed
Wracks triumphs be and humans don't breed

I raise from cold dreams of sorrow
This is my domain
Of luciferian spirit
Not the dead but the crying
Built the pillars of destruction
Track Name: Clashing of Swords
The path of fighting is the path of life
For either being alive or dead
Awake on the path of the brave
Refuse to bow before any gods

War is on the path of salvation
We march together, resist the aggressors
Raise our glory, and raise the chests
To brighten the path of destiny

Hearken the mourn of the dying warriors
Death was never an enemy of us
Courage is ours – we have mysteries
Wisdom is ours – we have mastery

Archaic battles under the desolate sky
Enemies weeping for their dead
Triumphant hour of conquest is near
Into the jaws of Death they march

Fullmoon rises into a magical night
Shadows surrounding the cold and weak
Storms raging across the fields
Hell's fire called revenge is burning

In a bloody night of fullmoon
Death was riding with us
Into the Empire of Darkness
To become one with hell
May our swords speak for his mouth
Keep the ancient flame still burning

To die in fight at ravages of war
All is gone which is sacred, is blessed
Destroyed are the spineless
For their bitterness inside
The last sound they hear are
The clashing of a thousand swords
Track Name: Forevery Dying but never Dead
Gods presiding at the infinite fear
Causeless is the appearance of Man
Elements of the Ancients divulge
The souls of the celestial Abyss

Breathing over slumbering waters
Dreamless sleep pulsates with inert life
The last drop of retribution
Consumed by those of the unlight

Darkness fills the boundless all
Wicked flames soar the purgatory
Countless sparks shining in it
Sun like blood and earth the tomb

Creative spirits brought ruination to
Light that warms but doesn't illumine
Murky gloom of divine spiritual purity
Sovereign Fiend behold Triune deceptions

Decay of the Logos within empty shroud
Practising devotees ascend no higher
As the immediate disobedient
Born in the ocean of superior truth

Disbelievers of the perpetual black force
That threatens to swallow you whole
Godless imperious spurns sorrow
Repent and blind belief sure is to err
Track Name: ...of Serpentine Forces
Obey my winds, obey
Wait, with a thrill in every vein
For the coming of the hurricane
And his fiery breath in the burning sky

Unite my winds, unite
Until the violent mighty raging storm
Leaves devastation behind in his wake
And is turning the sky pitch black

Lord of the winds
Chase me into the depths of knowingness
Antagonistic blind force
Out of control to forge ways ahead

Destroy my winds, destroy
Into a dark vortex of the unknown
Death and Carnage he spirals within
Rage is his power and shall lesson

Giant of Air
Tear me away with unabated strengths
To distant lands and mighty oceans
Sacrifice myself to eke out

Great Disposer on the firmament
your righteous will throws me
Into the sea of mystery
To hell and back again

Reinforce my winds, reinforce
Ruthless force of nature
Six hundred and sixty six broken angel wings
visioned like a war torn relic
Track Name: Nihil Negativum
Try not to hold me
nor mourn the inevitable
for I can see now
the abyss that awaits me

Freed from mortal yokes
upon the backs of man
the winds of fate in my ears

I enter the gates of night
Try not to comprehend me
nor follow my woeful path
for you cannot see
the curse that haunts me

The flames that devour my soul
shall now be soothed
yet their light shall ever burn
a golden torch for the dark to come

Arisen from dead temples
beyond the sight of man
the choirs of lamentation in my ears
I march towards my doom

The mist that chokes me
shall now be blown away
yet its veil shall ever remain
the drape to clad my soul

There is peace now in me
and the existence yonder

And I die from life finally...
and I live in death forever...
There is naught now between me
and the great darkness
Track Name: Hic Sunt Dracones
Deep in the dark forbidden forests of Transylvania
Impaler Lord Drakulya
Refused to pay homage to the sultan
Threefold ruler of Wallachia
Captures rats and cut them to pieces
Taste of fear in his hunting eyes
The world shivers of his phantom
Vlad, Son of the Dragon
Wandering through the forest of the impaled
Where screams inhabit night and day

Count Dracula unleash the evil of your empire
Suffer your enemies and torment the world
Count Dracula unleash the evil of your empire

Hic Sunt Dracones
Vlad, Son of the Dragon

Count Dracula unleash the evil of your empire
Enjoy your prey and return with supremacy
Track Name: Slaves to Existence
Slaves to existence, obey your masters
with deep respect and fear
Serve them sincerely as you would
serve Christ
Surrounded by a sea of serenity
no faith, no awareness
Stone ideals defined and refined
by the holy spirits of ancient lies

Slaves to existence – obey your masters

Join the soul murder, alive with collective
unconscious vapor
Never learn to look into his eyes
Your soul yearns, even faints,
for the courts of the Lord
Your heart and your flesh cry out
for the living God

You are the slave who fear to choose hatred, scoffin and abuse
You rather shrink in silence and dare not to be greather than humanity

"Ich kenne nichts Ärmeres
Unter der Sonn als euch, Götter!
Ihr nähret kümmerlich
Von Opfersteuern
Und Gebetshauch
Eure Majestät
Und darbtet, wären
Nicht Kinder und Bettler
Hoffnungsvolle Toren.
Wer half mir
Wider der Titanen Übermut?
Wer rettete vom Tode mich,
von Sklaverei?
Hast du nicht alles selbst vollendet,
Heilig glühend Herz?
Und glühtest jung und gut,
Betrogen, Rettungsdank
Dem Schlafenden da droben?
Ich dich ehren? Wofür?
Hast du die Schmerzen gelindert
Je des Beladenen?
Hast du die Tränen gestillet
Je des Geängsteten?
Hat nicht mich zum Manne geschmiedet
Die allmächtige Zeit
Und das ewige Schicksal,
Meine Herrn und deine?
Wähntest du etwa,
Ich sollte das Leben hassen,
In Wüsten fliehen,
Weil nicht alle Blütenträume reiften?
Hier sitz ich, forme Menschen
Nach meinem Bilde,
Ein Geschlecht das mir gleich sei,
Zu leiden, zu weinen,
Zu genießen und zu freuen sich
Und dein nicht zu achten,
Wie ich!"
Track Name: Under the Iron of the Moon
The flower of my anger grows wild
Everyone sees its thorn
Piercing the sky

So that blood drips from my sun
Growing the flower of my bitterness
God despises me

As above, so below; as below, so above
Under the Iron of the Moon
The Moon, dense and profound
Choked in the wheel of night

In hora mortis
The illness of my songs
The sickness of these verses
Go quietly into oblivion
I bring contempt
Only death and dreams and jealousy
For the end of the world
Track Name: Tiusche Man in Wieße Thorn
"The creator seeks companions and such as know how
to whet their sickles
They will be called destroyers and despisers
of good and evil
But they are the reapers and rejoicers
And you my first companion, rest in peace
I have buried you well"

"The dinginess of your bodies delivers to the
slow cadaverisation of the world
Stagnation of your inferior existence lies
on the crown of creation
Your creation is worthy to get perished"
