    11 - Track concept debut album from Yesterday's Saints

    It is the story of Satan throughout time: from his desire to usurp the throne of God to his modern infiltration of all mankind, with the indication that everyone on Earth is now a descendant of Satan. The album opens with a flashback: what corresponds chronologically to a third song is actually listed as the first track. The story then resumes from its chronological beginning starting on track 2. The final song alludes to two theories of the universe: the one that asserts we are all a figment of a man's dream; and multi-dimensional membrane theory, where the "Big Bang" was/will be the result of an intersection/collision between our current dimensional membrane and a parallel one. As a result of either theory, whether "the man" waking up or the collision between dimensional membranes, the end of days is the outcome. Time is then reset again by the man falling asleep again or the explosion of another "Big Bang".

about

Characters: Matt (YS vocalist) versus a foe. The lineage of Satan continues through him as he is cast to "The Inferno" (Paradise Lost), and what he witnesses on his way to the ring of hell he is destined for.

lyrics

Go to hell burning in flames you’ll learn
Stoking the fire of hell you will burn
Raise leviathan his mouth wide open your soul I do in turn
Casts of demons spill from the hell mouth claim your corpse to burn
Leave me signs on your way your footsteps will have to guide my way
The five circles that precede my fate your guidance I will have to take
To the inferno your heretic soul will be cast such blasphemy such heresy
Irreverence for the day your skin to boil your eyes to burst blood to quench your
Eternal thirst the time has come the time is now rotting flesh and God betrays
Raked across the embers of hate swallow me whole my soul to take grinding
My bones to a powder so fine forcing me down down down
The sun is silent yet a blaze still burn concentric circles laid out for souls to burn
Abandon all hope all who enter here
Descending deeper through the rings of the underworld brutal men scream
Like little girls seven deadly sins segregate this putrid world
Die die I pray my soul to die
Burn burn eternally I burn
Wasps’ nests fill my mouth with every word I spit to sting my forked tongue
Future I see in divine tragedy close of mankind in revelations’ end
Barbs of truth thread my eyes maggots feast as I bleed and cry
Burn Burn
