Crimson Snow 04:14
Crimson Snow -verse 1- Warrants nailed into splintered posts, Hungry peasants hunt down the Corsican. Bonaparte, has eluded them again Mistaken identity, they have the wrong man! -verse 2- Retreating from Moscow, through the bitter cold Plundering villages, struggling to survive Sleeping in barns, praying through the night Chattering teeth reveal their plight -verse 3- Weary footprints stamp the Russian snow Far away from family, their heads bowed low Buttons crumbled in the biting chill Tattered cloaks, Soggy boots -verse 4- Visions of grandeur all dissolved, French ambition, a dismembered fool, Long ghastly trail, snaking through the dark Cossacks pursue them like starving hounds Chorus As I lay bleeding, dying in this cold I look back on my life so tattered and torn Now as my weary life draws toward the end I'll take my last breath as I gaze at the crimson snow -verse 5- Splintered wagons abandoned in the ice Menacing flames dart towards the bridge Flickering mosaic burns against the sky, Silhouettes of death piling up high -verse 6- Bulging eyes staring at defeat Screaming thousands, into the river they sink! Panicked horses all mowed down Nostrils flaring as they drown Chorus As I lay bleeding, dying in this cold I look back on my life so tattered and torn Now as my weary life draws toward the end I'll take my last breath as I gaze at the crimson snow Lyrics By T.Kotsonis & N.Morano

Balkan Ghosts -verse 1- Haunted Battlefields, Scattered through the Balkans A blood-laced history -verse 2- Cascading centuries, Displaced ethnicity Puppets to the past -verse 3- Entangled heritage Woven words persuade Creating blackened hate Pre-Chorus Their costumes soaked in red Waving tattered flags Canons forge a stain Wounds that forever bleed! Chorus Mass migration across the borders Phantom shadows in a frenzy Hear the Balkan Ghosts screaming -verse 4- Neighbours locked in arms Butchery in mud Confused identities -verse 5- Hoof prints leave their mark The rust of bayonets Boundaries shift like sand -verse 6- Allies morph to foes Enemies shake hands Warped diplomacy Chorus Mass migration across the borders Phantom shadows in a frenzy Hear the Balkan Ghosts screaming Lyrics By T.Kotsonis

Church On The Hill -verse 1- Far away from Galilee From the fishes and the loaves Capitalist apostles Spread the word Devotees to the dollar Diluted dogma, a ceramic glaze Tattered gospels Blind man’s bluff Reel them into the altar Now, the spider’s lair Chorus Church bells no longer sound as gullible tongues do sing In their theatrical charade Iscariot’s shadow looms Over the church on the hill Church on the Hill -verse 2- Celebrity of the crucifix Your clerical collar frayed The congregation you persuade With your marketing diploma Cripple the senses Numb their thoughts Blindfold the cyclops' eye Anaesthetise the soul Chorus Church bells no longer sound as gullible tongues do sing In their theatrical charade Iscariot’s shadow looms Over the church on the hill Church on the Hill -bridge- Evangelist Twist the words of faith Evangelist To suite your ideals Evangelist Shepherding the weak of mind Evangelist To finance your greed Pre-Chorus My children turn your face away from the sun And rush with me toward the darkness Away from the shadow of the light And watch as your shadow dissipates Chorus Church bells no longer sound as gullible tongues do sing In their theatrical charade Iscariot’s shadow looms Over the church on the hill Church on the Hill Lyrics By T.Kotsonis

Echoes of the Pharisee -verse 1- Parchments, laws encrypted Artistry of the tongue Nourishing the deluded Infliction! -verse 2- Shadows dance through fire Judges, frothing dread The Abacus beads all aligning Stringing up the lies -verse 3- Adhesive words, to lure The Jackal's dressed in blood Spitting sacred verse Illusion! -verse 4- Parables, castigation Crawling through the thorns The splintered gavel falls The Tax collector's discharged! Chorus All I hear, are the echoes of the Pharisee! Pharisee! The magistrates figure draws near Chorus All I hear, are the echoes of the Pharisee! Pharisee! The magistrates figure draws near -verse 5- Blasphemy, Perjury, A putrid veil, Sacrament, Auguries, moral identity Lyrics By T.Kotsonis

Lady Macbeth 05:11
Lady Macbeth -verse 1- Eldritch seers of the night The stench of ambition, they recite The thane of Glamis comes forth Their auguries begin to align -verse 2- A crown dangles amongst the thorns They address him in borrowed robes He quivers at the very thought To slaughter and possess the throne Chorus Oh! Lady Macbeth Look ... The smudge on your flesh A scourge on the soul -verse 3- Scrubbing her hands raw Smeared with dark desire The lingering stain that haunts Guilt drips red on the floor! Chorus Oh! Lady Macbeth Look ... The smudge on your flesh A scourge on the soul Lyrics By T.Kotsonis

Akrobats Of Evolution From worm to man Man back to worm! -verse 1- The hermit leaves his cave Tutor of the Overman To cleanse a polluted stream Behold Zarathustra! -verse 2- From the piety of solitude He walks through the town The market swarms with flies Stinging pests of society Poison in the cobbled streets Footsteps that leave no imprints -verse 3- An assortment of fools Gather for the village fair They’ve come to see the show Idiots for the fanfare -verse 4- The tightrope sways The crowd gasps below The acrobat tries to leap But the jester aides his fall Chorus Akrobats of evolution Victims of devolution! Chorus Akrobats of evolution Victims of devolution! -verse 5- Jostling sea of cripples Eyeballs have been gouged Drinking from filth The Overman will never come! -verse 6- When the sun’s shadow is no more When laughter chokes his words The literati throw their stones He returns to the wilderness alone! Lyrics By T.Kotsonis

Vitriol 03:35
Vitriol -verse 1- People hear the spite in your words See disdain in your eyes Your Puppets now take the stage As you manipulate The fear of the ignorant -verse 2- Cloven hoofed bigotry Treading through the mud Detached from decency The hysteria of what is right -verse 3- The deceitful parrot spreads his bile The airwaves choke with venom The fear he paints won’t ally Dripping on a tainted canvass -verse 4- A repugnant pest trapped in time Orchestrating a sick pantomime A magnet to those that hate Lured toward the rotten bait -bridge- Vitriol Hate, Hate, Hate, Hate, Hate Chorus You let your agenda determine the facts Spit in their face & then you turn your back You’re a treacherous coward Twist their words then lie through your face -verse 5- Sad little man has no sympathy For those who are not like him No humanity or decency Roll up roll up and listen to his shit -bridge- Vitriol Hate, Hate, Hate, Hate, Hate Chorus You let your agenda determine the facts Spit in their face & then you turn your back You’re a treacherous coward Twist their words then lie through your face Lyrics By T.Kotsonis & N.Morano

Muted Witness -verse 1- Through the shattered glass He turns away Humanity's cries Muffled in this cowards mind Detached from the affray So far away Cushioned in his affluent ways! -verse 2- Bound to the egg From which he's hatched Fractured shell, Poised to smash before the swarm! Guilded spoon From which he feeds The Starving masses, he ignores. Chorus Through your eyes you peer What do you see Are you a muted witness? Eyes glare at the obscene But refuse to see Are you that muted witness now? -verse 3- Shadowing the flock His eyes are glued Branded irons on his weathered hide Can't he speak? The apostate's dirge, A Devotee to himself -verse 4- Vermin and lame A futile mouse, Look! How his lips are fucking numb! Depriving others A chance to soar Ripping the wings away from the moth! Chorus Through your eyes you peer What do you see Are you a muted witness? Eyes glare at the obscene But refuse to see Are you that muted witness now? Chorus Through your eyes you peer What do you see Are you a muted witness? Eyes glare at the obscene But refuse to see Are you that muted witness now? Muted witness Are you a muted witness? Am I a muted witness? Are we a muted witness? Lyrics By T.Kotsonis & N.Morano

about

“Matrimony In Madness” is Scythian Fate’s debut full length album.

The new album is darker and more intense, yet retaining the signature Scythian Fate sound. The themes on the new album are essentially based on the lunacy of our society and the undercurrent that binds it all together.

It also features new frontman Toby Heal who bolsters the sound with his menacing vocals.
