BLOOD RITUAL (1992)

Segundo larga duración para la suizos y desde luego álbum de referencia dentro de la escena black, sobre todo por la gran influencia que llegó a tener en la evolución de la escena, recordemos que en aquella época el black todavía no era un estilo totalmente consagrado y Samael supieron recoger las influencias de bandas como Hellhammer y Celtic Frost para acabar por asentar las bases del género y su posterior eclosión. En cuanto al sonido de este álbum se le puede llegar a tachar de un tanto simplista, es cierto que no estamos ante un elenco de riffs variados y las canciones son bastantes similares entre si, pero esto no es impedimento para que asistamos a todo un despliegue de medios, en donde la influencia del thrash más clásico está muy presente. Pero lo que realmente llama la atención es el ritmo lento y pesado de las composiciones, todo un acercamiento al doom del época y a Candlemass en particular, pero también es significativo el ambiente ritualista que emana todo el álbum. La influencia de Samael en la creación y posterior consagración de un género como el black metal esta fuera de toda duda, pertenecen a la época inicial de la escena en donde la delgada línea entre thrash y black no estaba del todo definida y con álbumes como este comenzaron a sentar cátedra. (8,6).


1. Epilogue 00:39  
 In a world of sorrow,
A tormented soul dreams of vengeance,
Through man she will live,
Through blood she will rule
2. Beyond the Nothingness 04:31
In the darkness of an endless night At the dawn of eternal life In the coldness of a land without sun Our spirits dive in the world of silence Farther into infinity Beyond the nothingness Atrocious vision of death Indescribable horror of darkness Desolation of absolute emptyness Unbearable sensation of impotence We're dazzled by total obscurity of the parallel world Our senses are numb for our longest journey Master speak, we're listening! Father order, we'll obey! We're all one And one is him 
3. Poison Infiltration 03:57
Slow and painful death Subtle and dangerous attack Brook of scorn Stream of anger River of hate Poison infiltrate society Rich and poor Noblemen and beggars Everyone has the key Personal vengeance or Crime of passion Cyanide remain eternal Mixture prepared in sombre conspirations Everywhere it slips poison sows confusion Neither the wheel, nor stake Can stop his ravages Neither the wheel, nor stake Will calm people's hate Vicious and intelligent death Certain and long degradation Poison infiltrate society Execrable beverage or refined wine No matter the administered dose Nobody can be immunized   
4. After the Sepulture 04:35
  Nothing ever stops
Everything starts again
The end and the beginning
Are eternal lovers

Prisoners of or bodies
From the cot to the grave
Impotent puppets
We aspire to the light

The sun will turn in black
You will see the dark...
After the sepulchre

Grams of their brother's cries
Spirit lastly free oneself
Like raise the incense smoke
And the funeral orations

Here time is unreal
Hours and minutes are meaningless
Here eternity has a name
Remorse and penitence

The sun will turn in black
You will see the dark...
After the sepulchre

Life is just an illusion
Going round and round
5. Macabre Operetta 06:41
Bodies consecrated to the earth Spirit to the light Life can't be infinite Only pain is eternal Cry for the ruined time You've lost to understand The meaning of life will stay a mystery But you now have the answers about death
6. Blood Ritual 03:24
Life, where suffering is the only satisfaction Sadness of my nights without sleep Anguish to be alone against all Ritual of blood, where a human being Gives his life for mine Spills his blood for mine Now I will be them and they will be mine And we'll be one above your god Blood ritual / Purification by the blood Blood ritual / Total consecration My spirit has dived into the infernal storm of evil My soul is forever tormented Take advantage of this jouvencal fluid Deliver your soul from claws of ignorance Death is the only way to escape the misery of life Death is the only way to reach the supreme power The caress of he blade on his skin Is waking up my old cruel dreams Look the so coveted liquid going out of his body Look the sacred fluid spilling out of his wounds Let your mind be impregnated By this mad attraction  
7. Since the Creation... 00:34
 Every men born evil
Someone will try to be good as they can
Some other will dedicate their life
To the unholy lord of the earth
8. With the Gleam of the Torches 06:25
 [the priest:]

- Everything's ready
- Go and get me fresh meat
- We're thirsty for sacred beverage
- Hurry up! I can't wait anymore

[the assembly:]

- Here she is the promised virgin!

[narration:]

Her nude body plays with the unstable shadows
Her long hair hides half her breasts, she rises her head
Her eyes are shining with the gleam of the torches

[the priest:]

- Look deep in my eyes, you little bitch
- Look at your death, she smiles at you

[priest reflection:]

Death opens her arms to you
You tremble and your body is wet
You haven't to be scared, you'll be saved
You'll suffer, you'll die, you'll be free

[the priest:]

I wish to hear her weep
I wish to hear her cry
I wish to hear her yell
Of disgust... of fear... of pain

[the priest with the crowd:]

We gonna take care of you...
9. Total Consecration 02:40
 From the north, from the south
From the west, from the east

I summon you, gods of the pit
Come to us, infernal legions

Satan, father of men, god of gods
Take a look at your children
Tonight, they give you their souls
10. Bestial Devotion 04:49
 [narration:]

Tired and submissive
Lying down on the black altar
She waits passive and anguished
A frost silence glides into the assembly

[priest reflection:]

Only my invocation resounds in the heads of the followers

[priest with the crowd:]

- Glory to you Ounis
- Praise be to Ounis

[the priest:]

- So her blood may quench your thirst
- So her meat may appease your hunger
- For you we'll eat the red crown
- For you we'll lick the green crown

[priest with the crowd:]

- Glory to you Ounis
- Praise be to Ounis

[narration:]

The blade penetrates deeply in the young flesh
All together copulate with the bloody wounds

[the priest:]

Here's the theatre of our dreams
- This is the beauty of absurdity

[priest with the crowd:]

- Glory and praise be to Ounis
11. ...Until the Chaos 03:25
Dead Dead For misery Torture Torture and pain Blood Blood will wake my soul Blood Blood will set the road of man Die! Down Come down Burn away Condemned It's never Never chained away   
  41:40
