    "The Epsilon Exordium" Lyrics

    Bal Sagoth

    [From the journal of Professor Caleb Blackthorne III,
    discovered May 1899, near the great Temple at Tiahuanaco, Peru:]
    [23 September: 1893]Upon extensive examination of the
    nefarious arcane codex known as The Epsilon
    Exordium, I believe my search may at last be drawing to a close. Indeed, I
    feel that perhaps the great discovery which has eluded me for so long may
    finally be within my grasp. And yet I must be cautious, for twice more have
    I seen the figures in the night,
    watching me in silence from the confines of
    the darkness. I cannot discern their features, only that they are vaguely
    human in shape, save for their arms which seem abnormally long and oddly

    jointed. My native guides are becoming increasingly agitated and skittish,
    babbling incoherently about the guardians of the tombs... citing legends
    from their ancestral past which speak of mysterious
    travellers who reputedly
    came down from the stars in great silvern chariots
    drawn by steeds of flame.
    At any rate, I have my trusted Martini-Henry .45 calibre breech-loader
    should these silent stalkers prove malign and ever deign to lay hold of me
    in the night. I have at last translated the carvings
    on the stone fragment I
    unearthed amidst the ruins of Angkor Wat.
    To my astonishment, I found that it
    predated the construction of the temple itself by countless
    thousands of years,
    and that it spoke of the same subject as did the hieroglyphs
    I beheld on the
    wall of the concealed chamber which I and Lord Blakiston
    discovered within the

    Great Pyramid in Egypt. Successive examinations of the edifices at Giza and
    Karnak revealed further parallels too precise to be mere coincidence. The
    pieces of this great cosmic puzzle are finally beginning
    to fall into place...

    [2 October: 1893]Yes, it is as I suspected.
    I have long felt that the Sumerians of Mesapotamia
    were among the first peoples to attain elucidation
    concerning the dread matter
    I pursue. My excavations at Lagash,
    Eridu, and most notably the ziggurats at

    Ur, have revealed truths which subsequent finds at Angkor, Egypt and
    Sacsahuaman only serve to consolidate.
    I now know that the Olmechs, the Aztecs
    and the Mayans were also undeniably key tendrils of this grand global web,
    and the unnerving truth I hitherto felt compelled to
    deny now seems inexorably

    to point to some grand and terrifying universal axiom.
    It seems however, that the closer I come to enlightenment, the greater the
    danger becomes. Last night,
    one of our expedition's chief guides disappeared
    without trace. His native compatriots could find no tracks, nor offer any
    evidence of his departure to suggest that his superstitions had finally
    compelled him to abandon the party... the man seems simply to have vanished
    inexplicably into the oppressive, sweltering dark. In light of the
    disappearance, I opted not to inform the group that
    during the darkling hours
    before sunrise last night I had peered from my tent
    to behold what I perceived
    to be three of the shadowy figures I have previously
    described moving furtively
    in the gloom, keeping ever just out of the illuminatory
    radias of our campfire.
    By the time I had brought my rifle to bear, they had melted away into the
    fathomless shadows of the benighted jungle...

    [10 October: 1893]The inscriptions on the tablet I
    discovered seem to be a fragmentary piece of
    some mysterious, perhaps apocryphal,
    larger work; evidently a lexicon of some
    description, undoubtedly of antediluvian origin.
    The first section, as far as
    I can discern, tells of an era thousands of years past when countless great
    and advanced civilisations, apparently with the legendary Atlantis foremost
    amongst them, spanned the circumference of the globe. The initial passage,
    seemingly a celebration of Atlantis Ascendant carved
    by a renowned chronicler
    of the day, speaks thusly:
