Mictlan 05:04
Feathered serpent embrace arrest staggered breath Weeping wound on heaving chest Mask of four sun filth Hide tracks of torture Sear the weeping flesh Smear trails of rot On fiery toothed stone Feel rancid breath Break on suppurating heels Tongue sup wine from The flesh that it steals It burns like Venom Lips back from teeth In insolent rictus Touch the skin it marrs Above two sillouhettes Arms entwined like hissing snakes Applaud the hound cremated As blazing thirst slaked A soulmate for the soulless Charred, relentless cur Thick taste of death rise In flames from burning fur Blacken to ash Writhe in the glow of embers The bed burns hot Screams inscribed in smoke Carved as knife cuts in bier Life reduced to putrid carrion Thrones at the apex of bones Dead in pyramids piled Cool ecstacy of immolation Court of the skeletal king Tiers of flame shed light Set sickly faces to burn Contort themselves against its glare The two of cruel countenance will them in darkness keep Tearing life from life Beware Mictlan
Ennea 04:09
Barren Shores of river vile Wretched dead haunt shadows, shattered wild In carmine sky the carrion fly Dormant blood, quick to their cry And now the damned, fight through blood and bile To hatreds edge, all fetid and befouled Over sewer waters slides proud razor prow A spectre with blade and spattered cowl Hydra hound of snake black venom Repugnant, vigilant, guard the Acheron Fire-torrent garrote Shadow Kingdom Nine times the noose of the poison woes Onward to bone gates Wall of twitching flesh Saviors nailed to burning pier Their eyes devoured and entrails hanged Crown of teeming maggots, flies Above decayed flesh the betrayed cry Crawl through dread arches Of bleeding, human pillars A screaming, organic machine Writhing, seeping, pain industry
Nekuia 01:54
Sekhu 03:14


'Mictlan' is the first recordings by The Amenta, recorded two years before the album 'Occasus'.

The three tracks Mictlan, Ennea, and Nekuia were re-released with the second edition of the 'Occasus' album released by Listenable Records and both Mictlan and Ennea were re-recorded for 'Occasus'.

The MCD contained a multimedia section that included an additional ambient instrumental, Sekhu, which was never released again anywhere else. Many people would be unaware of its existence. It is included here for the first time in a digital downloadable format.
