Track Name: Monster Lord
My kin all in the ground, they say I am the last
A journey to Glamis to claim my haunted past
I am the last earl of the noble Grimstead line
I'll be the first to end this curse before they strike the thirteenth chime

Deformed birth
Entombed in earth
Family curse

The rightful Lord was born deformed & locked away
The family curse keeps him alive yet to this day

With torch & sword
I journey towards
The Monster Lord

Ancestral nightmare whispers in its foul lair
Backward prayers to ensnare a distant heir
Track Name: The Tortuary at Dusk
She haunts the causeways where twisted gargoyles kneel
Her beauty cool & cruel as Barbara Steele

Black hounds escort her through the Hall of Living Masks
The black-veiled widow dreads her bloody task

A haunted seance, ectoplasma fills the air
The hunchbacked priest recites his desperate prayers

Giallo nightmares, chained & cast into the slime
In Eastman Color primes blood looks divine
Track Name: Cackling Shadows (director's cut of 'Beauty & Deceased')
There's something watching from the sky
Behind the black side of the moon there lurks a constant eye

A fallen woman came upon me in that night
And with her horrid glee infected me with dreadful dreams that robbed my might

Melting shapes of tangled bodies writhe
Twisted limbs & vacant eyes
Somewhere in the dark I found the door
I left her trapped there evermore

There's something watching from the sky...

The tendrils of the night breathe into me new life
Don't sweep me up yet, Rusty Scythe...
Track Name: A Morbid Poem (director's cut of 'The Hungerer')
Consumed by dark obsession I composed a morbid poem
An attempt to conjure fears giving them unearthly form

Stanzas held the secret of the resurrection spells
For a spectral haunter hidden where all superstition dwells

Before it had been nothing, an idea without birth
Now my words have brought it crawling out of legendry to lurk the earth...

No way to undo that this rotting dream came true
Promethean advent occurred & brought life to The Hungerer...
Track Name: Rigour Morgue ft. Vanessa from WOODEN STAKE (download only bonus track)
When nightfall calls I creep & crawl
To harvester her of bones
I mount the stairs from midnight's lair
To sound these morbid tones
When nightfall calls we creep your halls
Our shadows at your door
There is a grave-side table saved for you in Rigour Morgue

No escape from the secrets of sleep
I think you know what I mean
When the moon lights the way to the door
You can join me in the morgue

Blades drop at midnight
Cunning hands will not change his fate
So plead with me some more
Down here in my morgue

We creep from the shadows we call home
From there, the secret stairway carved in stone
When nightfall comes we may just try your door
There is a grave-side table saved for you in Rigour Morgue

When nightfall calls I creep & crawl
To harvester her of bones
I mount the stairs from midnight's lair
To sound these morbid tones
When nightfall calls we creep your halls
Our shadows at your door
There is a grave-side table saved for two in Rigour Morgue
