about

Redefining Darkness Records Presents:

From the depths of Cleveland's legendary metal scene emerges the decrepit corpse of Curse of Denial to devour the innards of the weak and unsuspecting. Vicious old school thrash-inspired metal carnage that will keep your head steadily banging into utter oblivion. A juggernaut of hellfire and oblivion awaits with Curse of Denial's debut full length album that carries the banner of metal into battle to level and annihilate the false. Conjuring the spirit of Northeast Ohio's infamous past, evil incarnate is spawned to destroy a new generation.

Track Name: Intro: Ophiuchus, The Winding Serpent
A never ending battle in the night
A soul to be swallowed or left alive
Into the darkness we ride
Now join us on our demise

The 13th Sign
Track Name: Pawns in Chess
With hate foreseen we crush all dreams
The lies are real create an ordeal

Generations of apostasy bring us atrocities

We wish you the best
Goodnight and Godbless
To my pawns in chess

Give us the day for the soulless parade

Generations of apostasy bring us atrocities

Now feed them the cow and golden sow
We sour the hellion and extinguish the rebellion

Look in their eyes tell them our lies
Globalization will save our nation

Unite the core send in the hordes
Suffer the day to usher in decay
It's never too late because we are your fate

Unite the core send in the hordes
Suffer the day to usher in decay

We wish you the best
Goodnight and Godbless
To my pawns in chess
Track Name: Malthusian Nightmare
“Famine seems to be the last, the most dreadful resource of nature. The power of population is so superior to the power of the earth to produce subsistence for man, that premature death must in some shape or other visit the human race. The vices of mankind are active and able ministers of depopulation. They are the precursors in the great army of destruction, and often finish the dreadful work themselves. But should they fail in this war of extermination, sickly seasons, epidemics, pestilence, and plague advance in terrific array, and sweep off their thousands and tens of thousands. Should success be still incomplete, gigantic inevitable famine stalks in the rear, and with one mighty blow levels the population with the food of the world.”
— Thomas Malthus, 1798. An Essay on the Principle of Population. Chapter VII, p61

I curse you all with the truth mighty nations
You will fall to your own depopulation
Like a severed head still seeing
You heed not my call and keep believing
You have the answers you have the facts
This generation could be your last

Wait for the time to come
Slaughter the innocent
And simply pray that we have done very best

Precursors in the great family of destruction
Pestilence and plague in an array of soul abduction
Clear the way I must be saved

The success of death sees no end it is deceiving
We are the force of global misconceiving
See us united in our greed now follow death as we lead
We are the nightmares we are the plague
Trust in us to show you straight to the grave

Famine now rises high witness the multitudes die

Oh lord this is torture
Track Name: Curse of Izabel
My chambers will be full tonight to conceive my latest rite
Hordes of abomination spread across my nation
A deception of beauty to those who surround me
And I will bring a deity to see the world to its knees

Oblige me on filthy knees
In heated lust I've gained their trust

Despise the seal of all that is real and be consumed by disgust
The lies, hate and bloodsoaked rape by the moon we break the crust
In the dead of night far from sight these visions become real
In the mist and rain I will bring you pain and your soul is my field

Contrived of lust to breed disgust to fall you must dust to dust
Break the trust fall to rust to the end we must dust to dust

They found me, hiding, kneeling, praying
I’m falling what's happening to me, forsaking

The dogs have come I see my blood how fast it runs, martyrdom
My soul burns, it’s his turn the time has come, judgement

I’m wallowing for all to see eternity
The day has come
Track Name: Night Terrors
Far beyond just a bump in the night
The darkness screams a ghastly song for you
Your eyes adjust slowly now gaining sight
Every nightmare in life is now coming true

Night Terrors Come
They have now come for you
Fear The Night
Dreams are now coming true
Pierce Your Skin
Demons now fall in place
Tear Your Limbs
As they peel back your face

You try to speak yet the words will never come
You try to scream but they stole your voice from you
Your heart it beats now like a funeral drum
Your throat is squeezed as your face is turning blue
A silent scream in your final breath
Yet your life is far from through
The night is young the demons have had their rest
Face your fate with the pain that is overdue

Oh lord where is the light I can not find the day
My flesh burns into the night as the skin is stripped away
This pain it never ends and their breath reeks of filth
How long can I withstand these attacks I can not lay still
Track Name: The Aphotic Zone
Time moves so slow in the the night I find my abyss
Gone now is hope as I embrace nothingness

I am slipping away I can feel nothing but loss
My mind’s decay leaves me feeling all but lost

Down into this hell I travel no remission of sin
Today is a lifetime away

This testament of sin reveals the darkness within

Down as I plunge into chaos the only way I’ve known
Today is a lifetime away

I break out of this shell just again to find myself in hell
I trusted the day and it left me betrayed
Devoid of hope better off alone
Filled with hate and unbridled rage

I break out of my shell just again to find myself in hell
I trusted the day and it left me betrayed

I wish that I was sleeping I wish that I was dreaming
I wish that happiness could just exist
I wish that I had feeling I wish that I had meaning
I wish the emptiness could be dismissed

And when the sun came out I did not exist
Again I find myself in utter hopelessness
In this aphotic zone I am all alone
And since I have no home my mind is where I roam
Tell me where is hope?

Life is this abyss with no shelter and no solace

Can I cease to exist with death as my guardian?

I wish that I was sleeping I wish that I was dreaming
I wish that happiness could just exist
I wish that I had feeling I wish that I had meaning
I wish the emptiness could be dismissed
Track Name: Haven for the Dispossessed
The skys were once so bright the trees so full of life
There was no grief or strife
There was no pain to steal
Life it seemed unreal we had no fear to feel

Then the sky turned black our earth it cracked
When they attacked
Like a mighty swarm came a lifeless form
It did not forewarn

(repeat)

To assimilate and seal our fate they know not our strength
The smell of blood will release a flood of all things to come
Murder in our heads we will never rest blood must be shed
The infidel does not know us well we will show him hell

Murder in our heads we will never rest blood must be shed
The infidel does not know us well we will show him hell

Anger resentment and hatred
Carnage torture and bloodshed
Our flag of destruction will fly above your homes

We are the caliphate sowing seeds of hate
On your land we will rage
We are not alone now your blood will flow
We thank you for our home
Track Name: The Tower of Silence
Souls above the clouds of red have fallen off the coach that led them
to the place where glory dwells but leaves no mark of what has bled

The pillars of this spire holds what once had been skulls of gold
its cries are heard as lonely lambs diving into flames of mold

Emergence of spurn and disgust keep you as your tongues of lust
exalt their phlegm in hordes of glut that once was splendor now is rust
Here we stand as guiles of spite docile to life's foul blight
No one can sense despair or wile as broods of death writhe in flight

Those eyes despise what’s left of life
Angst and knives rape and scythes
Deny all that is left to shrive
Track Name: The Day That the Sun Failed to Rise
Summoned into the night serpents on the crawl
-They are filled with hate-
The shrieks chills and fright will haunt you until you fall
-They laugh at your dismay-
You pray for the dawn to come fearing that you can no longer run
-The evil is near-
The fear of death embracing as your heart is racing

They are lying and waiting the demons of the deep
Your mind forever racing for they never sleep

Terror grips at your soul as they rise from below
-The beast that you fear-
While you are awaiting your breath is hesitating
-The end is now near-

They are lying and waiting the demons of the deep
Your mind forever racing for they never sleep

Now come forth and take from this earth
My hurt my pain and all these atrocities
The bloodless bleed and hang from the tree of life
Never to be taken down
A day to see the bounds of insanity broken away
Freed from the chains of life
in vain and endless pain
Now we've seen
The day that the sun failed to rise

The story is told as death unfolds Can you awaken from this dream
Through lies and hate we seal our fate to a darkened and deafening scream
From the start we're torn apart
Track Name: Pemonition
As I gaze into the sky and wonder why all of my dreams are now real
Prophetic dreams of prolific scenes yet their fate is now sealed
In this field of the unreal my mind again starts to reel
I know the time when you will die to me it is all revealed

I see the death their final breath a premonition of all things to come

I see the fate of those with their demise
The time has come you can not run
Fate now has you in its sights

Now hide and push aside what's in my mind
Visions that I can not overcome
And if I run from the sun
There is nothing that can be undone

I see the death their final breath a premonition of all things to come

I see the fate of those with their demise
The time has come you can not run
Fate now has you in its sights

A somber vision your final mission
May it end with a bullet or knife
Off to a place to rest in grace
I see the death before the afterlife

You are granted the illusion of choice
And you thought you would never have a voice
Through valleys of hatred and fear
All that I can say is that the end is near

I see the fear and endless tears
With hatred beauty and scorn
With deep respect I mourn the dead

I see the fate of those with their demise
The time has come you can not run
Fate now has you in its sights

Is this all game just to bring me pain
My mind will break my soul to take
As a bullet enters my brain
Track Name: Outro: My Final Word to You
My final words to you
Remember to embrace the sadness
Fear not insanity's madness
And let the night take you away…

And if the suffering you feel
Turns to paramount evil
Revenge will be your servant
And the night will take you away...

My final words to you
Remember to embrace the sadness
Don't let the night die...
