Jewelcase CD, 16-page booklet with lyrics

------------------------------

Pulled out of the Earth’s bowels by the Great Architect, the French outsiders known as ANTAGONISTE reveal the Eschatology by transcending the mediocrity of Mankind. Alchemists of the Black Arts, their music destroys the conception of Reality in order to create infinite possibilities.

Fashioned, shaped and modelled at Demiurgus Studio, ANTAGONISTE's debut album "The Myth Of Mankind" sublimates the Metal genre with its unique mix of Sludge, Black, Avant-garde, darkened pieces of Progressive music and disharmonic Shoegaze Rock.
This is the beginning of an evolutionary musical journey that will help you to explore your inner-self abyss.

Track Name: The Rise Of The Lightbringer
In Nomine Dei Nostri Satanas Luciferi Excelsi

Master, I believe in Thee
Master, I pass near to Thee!
Thou art in my flesh
Thou art in my blood
And Thou art in my very soul
Thy spirit giveth refreshment to me when I am thirsty
Thy spirit healeth me when I am sick
Thou makest me to search for the hidden answers
Thou makest me to be wise
Forever am I indebted to Thee, my Lord and Muse
I live for Thee and I breathe for Thee
I pass into being for Thee
Hail Lucifer, the Lord and Prince of this World!
Rise Lucifer, the Lightbringer!
Track Name: The Barren Lands
«Les Terres Arides de mon Ame s’abreuvent de son Délicieux Nectar Noir»

Absurdity! The Wise remains the Misunderstood
Cupidity! The Greedy enjoys pauperism
Blindness! The Ignorant becomes the Master
Sadness! The Fool lost his Crazy Wisdom

Naked Souls Are Being Haunted
Through The Barren Lands
Without Any Hope of Shelter
Without Any Hope of Repentance

Enlighten me with your presence - To Fill the Barrenness
Shower me with your knowledge - Of my Soul
Lead me to the dark river - To Fill the Barrenness
Drown me in your cursed nectar – Of my Mind

Acedia! The Monk despises The Creator
Lust! The Weak desires The Flesh
Frustration! The Child resists to The Will
Disillusion! The Sheep loses Faith in the Shepherd

Naked Souls Are Being Haunted
Through The Barren Lands
Without Any Hope of Shelter
Without Any Hope of Repentance

Enlighten me with your presence - To Fill the Barrenness
Shower me with your knowledge - Of my Soul
Lead me to the dark river - To Fill the Barrenness
Drown me in your cursed nectar – Of my Mind

The Barrenness of my Soul
Led me to your Dark River
The Barrenness of my Mind
Brought me to your Dark Church
I am Thirsty for You
I am Thirsty for You

Rise!
Track Name: The Demiurge
He, the Responsible for the Fashioning of the Physical Universe
He, the Creator of Misery, Pain and Death
The World Remains Imperfect, as He Created it out of Chaos
The Jealous God, the Son of Mother Creation

The Demiurge
As Antagonistic
To the Will
Of the Supreme Being
The Demiurge
The Accuser
The Seducer
And The Destroyer

O May it be Thy Will
My God and the God of my Fathers
Not to Let Me Fall
Into the Hands of this Angel

He, the One who Fashions, Shapes, and Models
He, who Takes the Soul Away from Man
The World Remains Imperfect, as He Created it out of Chaos
The Jealous God, The Son of Mother Creation

The Demiurge
As Antagonistic
To the Will
Of the Supreme Being
The Demiurge
The Accuser
The Seducer
And The Destroyer

O May it be Thy Will
My God and the God of my Fathers
Not to Let Me Fall
Into the Hands of this Angel

O May it be Thy Will
My God and the God of my Fathers
Not to Let Me Fall
Into the Hands of this Angel
Track Name: The Fall Of Man
Eschatology, The End Time, and the End of The World
The End of Ordinary Reality and Reunion with the Divine
Ashamed of their Nakedness
The wicked will then be Consigned to Eternal Suffering

Assumptio Mosis

The Vision of the Bulls and the Sheep
The Forest, The Vine, The Fountain, And The Cedar
The Bright And The Black Waters
The Willow And its Branches

Aeon, the End of Life as We Know It
The Reaching of a New Level of Consciousness
Their Greed and Blindness Led Them to their Fall
The Revelation Of Destruction

Assumptio Mosis

The Vision of the Bulls and the Sheep
The Forest, The Vine, The Fountain, And The Cedar
The Bright And The Black Waters
The Willow And its Branches

Assumptio Mosis

Taxo
Track Name: The Nihilist
There is no Objective
No Morality
No Object
Meaning or Purpose
Reality does not Exist
Existence has no Meaning
The Negation of One
The Meaninglessness of Life
All Human Ideas are Valueless
An Ascetic Attitude as a Will to Nothingness

The World is Conditioned by the Very Idea of its Own Annihilation
(I Deny All Existence)
The World is Conditioned by the Very Idea of its Own Annihilation
(I Deny All Existence)
A Stillness like Death
Into which Nothing can Penetrate
In which Everything Sinks
Powerless

There is no Norm
No Knowledge
No Intrinsic Value
Rule or Law
A Wilful Destruction
Lay Down One's Interpretations
The Self-Dissolution of Religion
No Form of Beauty to be Found
All Human Ideas are Valueless
An Ascetic Attitude as a Will to Nothingness

The World is Conditioned by the Very Idea of its Own Annihilation
(I Deny All Existence)
The World is Conditioned by the Very Idea of its Own Annihilation
(I Deny All Existence)
A Stillness like Death
Into which Nothing can Penetrate
In which Everything Sinks
Powerless

The Apocalypse is Finished
Today it is the Precession of the Neutral
Of Forms of the Neutral
And of Indifference
All that Remains, is the Fascination
For Desertlike and Indifferent Forms
For the very Operation of the System that Annihilates Us
Now, Fascination is a Nihilistic Passion par Excellence
It is the Passion Proper to the Mode of Disappearance
We are Fascinated by all Forms of Disappearance
Of Our Disappearance
Melancholic and Fascinated
Such is Our General Situation
In an Era of Involuntary Transparency

A Restrictive Truth
The Possibility of Other Ways of Being
The Strength of a Free Spirit
The Strength of a Free Spirit
The Strength of a Free Spirit
The Strength of a Free Spirit
Track Name: The Black Sun
Les Etres se déchirent sur Terre
Oubliant qu’ils ne sont que particules de poussière
Chacun veut s’asseoir sur le trône du Démiurge
Pour déclamer la Fin des Temps et sa Purge

Soleil Noir
Que ta sombre majesté répande le Chaos
Soleil Noir
Que tes rayons illuminent nos Ames souillées
Que ton étouffante chaleur sublime notre Mort
Que ton étouffante chaleur abime nos Corps

Tel un alchimiste,
Transformes notre chair en poussière
La dissolution des corps,
Le noircissement de la matière
L’Eon Du Soleil Noir
Fera couler le sang des imposteurs
L’Eon Du Soleil Noir
Où les ignorants seront glorifiés

Soleil Noir
Que ta sombre majesté répande le Chaos
Soleil Noir
Que tes rayons illuminent nos Ames souillées
Que ton étouffante chaleur sublime notre Mort
Que ton étouffante chaleur abime nos Corps
Eschatologie
Leurs peaux s’abreuvent du Soleil Noir
Eschatologie
La purge pour une renaissance

Les Etres se déchirent sur Terre
Oubliant qu’ils ne sont que particules de poussière
Chacun veut s’asseoir sur le trône du Démiurge
Pour déclamer la Fin des Temps et sa Purge
Track Name: The Ubermensch
God Is Dead

God is Dead
Welcome to the Creator of New Values

The Meaning of Earth
There is No Other World Apart From This One
Dissatisfaction With Life
There is No Other World Apart From This One
A Supreme Achievement
An Eternal Return
The Eternal
Recurrence of the Same

Transfiguration of Life
Is My Only Task

Transfiguration of Life
Is My Only Aim
Track Name: The Wanderer
I Have Lost myself
In different landscapes
Figuring out
How to Reconnect

I Have walked through different countries
Without finding my home
I am the Stranger
Forever The Wanderer

I have climbed the highest mountains
To reach the Holy Grail
Believing to escape
The Ignorance of Man

So stupid I was
To think there was only one way
So blind I was
Not to see the beauty of Death
