Holy lies of blinded faith, Crawl in darkness like a snake. Burning shadows of sulphur mist Overshadow the abyss. Damnation speaks your tongue, with words of misery… Eye of mercy stare you down Salvation wears a golden crown. Wolves are running by my side And nightfall brings the fire pride. Damnation speaks your tongue, with words of misery… YOU SPEAK THE TONGUE OF MISERY [BURY ME IN FIRE!] YOU SOIL THE LAND WITH FALSITY [BURY ME IN FIRE!] YOU SPENT YOUR LIFE IN MISERY [BURY ME IN FIRE!] DON’T WANNA ROT IN YOUR GROUND! Blessed by signs of human grief I walk the path of disbelief. Heaven’s hung with black desire Souls trapped down in a dark mire. Damnation speaks your tongue, with words of misery… YOU SPEAK THE TONGUE OF MISERY [BURY ME IN FIRE!] YOU SOIL THE LAND WITH FALSITY [BURY ME IN FIRE!] YOU SPENT YOUR LIFE IN MISERY [BURY ME IN FIRE!] DON’T WANNA ROT IN YOUR GROUND! Inside the heart of darkness, Through the black of night, I’ll cast my ashes into wind To bring you sight… The thunder echoes with my deeds, Pay for your lies on bended knees Release your hands from golden seals, Forever free from your disease… YOU SPEAK THE TONGUE OF MISERY [BURY ME IN FIRE!] YOU SOIL THE LAND WITH FALSITY [BURY ME IN FIRE!] YOU SPENT YOUR LIFE IN MISERY [BURY ME IN FIRE!] DON’T WANNA ROT IN YOUR GROUND! BURY ME IN FIRE!

What is in that house Looking through my eyes? What is in that house Breathing through my chest? Who are those people Wearing the black hood? They tell me something I’ve never understood… Don’t be afraid my friend Of what’s inside these walls, People don’t catch the sense When prejudice guides ‘em all. Look up your mind and soul, Here you can find much more Please, step in through this door And you will find the cure… Exalt yourself Worshipping things that makes you alive, Deny false pride When you’re judging things from your side. Enforce your wisdom Don’t you fall in self deception If you tread this path You are welcome… In the Black House! In the Black House Come in the Black House In the Black House Come in the Black House! Come in and you will see The altar made of flesh, Your lust can be expressed Your essence starts afresh. Look up your mind and soul, Here you can find much more Please, step in through this door And leave your life before… Forgive yourself Forgetting all your sufferings, Cold vengeance seek Instead of sadly turning the other cheek. Be kind to those Who don’t waste your love without a cause. If you tread this path You are welcome… In the Black House! … In the Black House In the Black House Come in the Black House In the Black House Come in the Black House! … Here in the Black House! Vitality we teach If you’re bold enough to learn, Unless won’t use your magic It’s clear you have concern. Look up your mind and soul, Here you can find much more Please, step in through this door And you will find new core… Respect yourself Accepting all things you have done, Indulge your greed Rate abstinence a barren seed. By tasting sins, Satisfy your mind and body wins. If you tread this path You are welcome… In the Black House! In the Black House Come in the Black House In the Black House Come in the Black House! In the Black House Come in the Black House In the Black House Come in the Black House!

Under clouds made of iron Divine justice is done They damn me as heretic Cannot bear freethinking. I’ve been looking at the stars Whole Creation is God There is nothing divided I saw Nature as one. The truth is gone… My life is gone… But my faith, here, doesn’t bow down! FIRE IS NOT MY REQUIEM FIRE ENLIGHTS MY SPEECH FIRE IS NOT MY REQUIEM FIRE IS NOT MY END… NOW AND FOREVER! From the top of this pyre I cannot see your god I cannot see any mercy You have been talking about. From the shadows of crosses You are spreading your plague Giving birth to ignorance Bringing endless decay. The truth is gone… My life is gone… But my faith, here, doesn’t bow down! FIRE IS NOT MY REQUIEM FIRE ENLIGHTS MY SPEECH FIRE IS NOT MY REQUIEM FIRE IS NOT MY END… NOW AND FOREVER… FIRE… FIRE IS NOT MY END… NOW AND FOREVER! MAIORI/FORSAN/CUM TIMORE SENTENTIAM IN ME/FERTIS/QUAM EGO ACCIPIAM MAIORI/FORSAN/CUM TIMORE SENTENTIAM IN ME/FERTIS/QUAM EGO ACCIPIAM I see them through the black fog They are trembling with fear Sitting down on their thrones Feeling my curse and scorn. Although you are turning my body Into a handful of dust You will not quench my furor Over ages thought flies! The truth is gone… My life is gone… But my faith, here, doesn’t bow! FIRE IS NOT MY REQUIEM FIRE ENLIGHTS MY SPEECH FIRE IS NOT MY REQUIEM FIRE IS NOT MY END… NOW AND FOREVER! MAIORI/FORSAN/CUM TIMORE SENTENTIAM IN ME/FERTIS/QUAM EGO ACCIPIAM

the Oracle 04:31
WE SAW THE LIGHT IN THE ORACLE, FOLLOW THE LIGHT OF THE MORNING STAR! MORNING STAR! We never thought to get the chance To catch rays more than a glance, The sun for us would never shine Until today he has come. Time to change the Fate, We must liberate This land from dark and fear! WE SAW THE LIGHT IN THE ORACLE, FOLLOW THE LIGHT OF THE MORNING STAR! He stood against his father’s plan When realized how he treated men He stole the sparks from highest skies And brought them all to us. Rise man’s intellect Give them own respect Within these hands we have new life. WE SAW THE LIGHT IN THE ORACLE, FOLLOW THE LIGHT OF THE MORNING STAR! Now people from the Earth listen to my voice of angel, use your thoughts! You spent so many years crawling into mud to swallow tears… You have to see the light! I’ve given you the reign of Earth Losing all my rights in heaven I shall rise. Achieve the Universe Developing mind with Science and Arts Recreate the world! YOU SAW MY LIGHT IN THE ORACLE, FOLLOW THE LIGHT OF THE MORNING STAR! MORNING STAR!

Unleash your wild desire Doing whatever you want, When they try to kill you Be sure to strike them first… I’m the spirit sharping your fangs When you deserve revenge. So plot your mass revolt And break the chains of slaves Lighten the vexed heads And stand against the lash I’m the prophet predicting myth Your fate is here… THE FIRST BORN SINNER IS HERE [FIRST BORN SINNER!] TO GIVE YOU FREE WILL AND CHOICE [FIRST BORN SINNER!] THE FIRST BORN SINNER IS HERE You have ran far from home Seeking for all those rites That make you understand The force you got inside I’m the echo that calls in the night My star shines in the dawn When you are oppressed, And tortured for your thoughts, Just because the mob Can’t understand your gift… I’m strength to resist the pain The fight is near! THE FIRST BORN SINNER IS HERE [FIRST BORN SINNER!] TO GIVE YOU FREE WILL AND CHOICE [FIRST BORN SINNER!] THE FIRST BORN SINNER IS HERE I inspire mind and will, Curiosity’s my seed, Intelligence I spread To all these human beings I’m the thinker who gazes at the stars Until I burn my eyes… You can be free from all Hypocrisy they bring Upon their wings of lies Securely tied to power I’m the serpent giving you right to choose Between Evil and Good… THE FIRST BORN SINNER IS HERE [FIRST BORN SINNER!] TO GIVE YOU FREE WILL AND CHOICE [FIRST BORN SINNER!] THE FIRST BORN SINNER IS HERE [FIRST BORN SINNER!] THE FIRST BORN SINNER IS HERE [FIRST BORN SINNER!] TO GIVE YOU FREE WILL AND CHOICE [NATURAL BORN SINNER!] THE FIRST BORN SINNER IS HERE THE FIRST BORN SINNER!

No one kills, no one wins Except for blood That stains this steel RIOT! He was caught from his family Away from his land To fight for the Empire To mix blood and sand. Mark of slavery Was carved on his skin (but) A prophecy of greatness To the riot inspired him. His name was Spartacus FROM SLAVE TO KING FIGHT THE MIGHTY FROM SLAVE TO KING CLASH DESTINY FROM SLAVE TO KINGS Leading few gladiators, Brothers ‘till the death, To Roman high society He posed a piercing threat. Searching for the liberty He was followed by the poor Legions they defeated No way about to lose… Their name was Spartacus FROM SLAVE TO KING FIGHT THE MIGHTY FROM SLAVE TO KING CLASH DESTINY FROM SLAVE TO KINGS RIOT… Bound to this legacy He marched towards Fate, Scaring all the enemies By the power of his hate. Even in the last day, On a red soaked land, Surrounded by centurions He didn’t touch the sand. He was taken by the gods of war FROM SLAVE TO KING FIGHT THE MIGHTY FROM SLAVE TO KING CLASH DESTINY FROM SLAVE TO KINGS No one kills, no one wins Except for blood That stains this steel. Fight until Your heart holds still And after that Do not give in! To gain freedom all heroes must die, Gather armies and challenge the Death, Open wide are the gates of Avernus But your legend will see the Empire’s fall! RIOT!

The night has come so fast I have no time to rest You turned me into a beast Bond slave to your own thirst STARTS The RUN BEGINS The HUNT You call me once again To kill someone with pain But I stand against your leash This time I’ll do my wish! I will lick you I will suck you I will bite your life tonight I AM YOUR PREDATOR! I will smell you I will chase you I will treat you as a prey I AM YOUR PREDATOR! I enjoy while you escape, You’re near to suffocate, Pure pleasure taste in death That’s what you always said KEEP RUNNING I HOLD HUNTING You’re falling at my feet, Your flesh can feed my teeth, A feast of blood I have set So make me free at last! I will lick you I will suck you I will bite your life tonight I AM YOUR PREDATOR! I will grab you I will kiss you I will slain you in the dark I AM YOUR PREDATOR! Don’t ask me to forget It’s time to meet the end, No longer you will see This beast prone at your deeds. The charm is broken down, But I cannot breath so well The thirst is still alive Became something of mine! I will lick you I will suck you I will bite your life tonight I AM YOUR PREDATOR! I will hunt you I will kill you I will eat you every night I AM YOUR PREDATOR! YOUR PREDATOR!

Inquisitor has come Approaching me with calm Prepares tortures and torment. I’m trapped within these walls Senses are going to fall A voice whispers to my ears… RAISE YOUR FIST, CLENCH YOUR TEETH, NOTHING’S GONNA CHANGE WHILE HIDING IN FEAR RAISE YOUR FIST, CLENCH YOUR TEETH, NOTHING’S GONNA CHANGE WHILE HIDING IN FEAR The iron is red and bright, Is fading all my sight, DON’T WANNA KISS YOUR BLOODY FAITH! A deep pain tears my will, I’m next to pass the sill The voice still whispers to my ears… RAISE YOUR FIST, CLENCH YOUR TEETH, NOTHING’S GONNA CHANGE WHILE HIDING IN FEAR RAISE YOUR FIST, CLENCH YOUR TEETH, NOTHING’S GONNA CHANGE WHILE HIDING IN FEAR I feel a boiling rage And start to melt the cage I put a hand on his shoulder. Inquisitor is done, Into the wind he’s gone As I’ve turned him into dust… I stroke down enemy Deserving what I need No one can force you to prey! I will spread these words which Saved me from filthy ditch Awakening conscience and its strength RAISE YOUR FIST, CLENCH YOUR TEETH, NOTHING’S GONNA CHANGE WHILE HIDING IN FEAR RAISE YOUR FIST, CLENCH YOUR TEETH, NOTHING’S GONNA CHANGE WHILE HIDING IN FEAR RAISE YOUR FIST, CLENCH YOUR TEETH, DO NOT LIVE IN FEAR!!

Staring at the night When full moon rises in the sky You cannot avoid arcane call. Running out from home You chase your heart within the woods A Walnut tree appears to you… Receiving wisdom from the oldest times You discover the lure of secret rites. The circle is ready for the ancient cult The cup waits for sacred dagger and now… YOU BELONG TO WITCHES YOU BELONG TO WITCHES DON’T FEAR THE WITCHES ‘CAUSE YOU BELONG TO WITCHES People blame your life And wants you to follow crowd But you found your inner self. Dancing with the coven Rejoin to nature you came from, Witchery of life now begins… Descending spirits when the moonlight shines, All creatures gather coming from the dusk. The horned god is rising from the fire The goddess is ready to accept the life YOU BELONG TO WITCHES YOU BELONG TO WITCHES DON’T FEAR THE WITCHES ‘CAUSE YOU BELONG TO WITCHES Musk and leaves, dew and flowers Give shelter for two lovers, Silver sister’s brilliant might Fades away into sunlight. Shouting from their distant graves Fool men try to make you slaves, They just fear, don’t understand Highest powers you got in hands… YOU BELONG TO WITCHES YOU BELONG TO WITCHES DON’T FEAR THE WITCHES ‘CAUSE YOU BELONG TO WITCHES ‘CAUSE YOU BELONG TO WITCHES ‘CAUSE YOU BELONG TO WITCHES

about

NATURAL BORN SINNER is the third full length from the Italian heavy metal doom band Circle of Witches published in May 2019 on SLIPTRICK RECORDS. The album was recorded during January 2016 and mixed in the later 2017 at ALPHA OMEGA STUDIOS on the banks of Como Lake by Alex Azzali, producer together with Nicholas Barker.
The eleven tracks on the album follow the path of heavy metal and doom with influences of Judas Priest, Grand Magus and Candlemass. All lyrics were inspired by the theme of riot and some characters like Anton LaVey, founder of the Church of Satan, Lucifer, the fallen angel, the witches, warders of ancient wisdom, Giordano Bruno, Italian XVI century philosopher and mage burnt alive by Roman Church, Spartacus, the slave who rebelled against Rome.
The album was written in a couple of months during the 2015 cold winter and was already played during a pre-release European Tour during the 2018 in Austria, Hungary, Germany, Malta, Italy.


TRACK 1
The opener Tongue Of Misery is a track that blows hard against religions and their words full of hypocrisy, against which human’s intellect and disbelief are the only weapons to react. The narrator prefers to be burnt rather than buried in a “sacred” soil. Its riffs are heavier than the others and was also the very first song composed for “Natural Born Sinners”.

TRACK 2
The second track, THE BLACK HOUSE, is dedicated to Anton LaVey’s Church of Satan and it develops its Nine Statements.

TRACK3:
The following songs is an homage to the Italian philosopher, free thinker and mage Giordano Bruno, burnt alive by Catholic Church in 1600. It’s a chapter full of doomish atmosphere.

TRACK4:
THE ORACLE is the fourth track and deals with the figure of Lucifer under his promethean significance. He awakened the intellect and the power of creation in the mankind, against the will of god.

TRACK 5:
The fifth FIRST BORN SINNER is a kind of album themes summary. It quotes all other lyrics suggesting that behind all rebellious (Spartacus, witches, philosopher, the poor victim of Inquisition…) there is the first being defined as Sinner, so again Lucifer.

TRACK 6:
The sixth track tell the story of Spartacus, a slave who claimed freedom for him and his fellow against the Roman Empire.

TRACK 7:
YOUR PREDATOR is a wicked man who struggles for freedom from his sexual mistress. She turned him into a beast, prone at her blood and violence thirst, until he is able to react against the woman.

TRACK 8
DEUS VULT is a vocal Latin death sentence inspired by Inquisition and Malleus Malleficarum documents. It introduces the following song.

TRACK 9
DEATH TO THE INQUISITOR, the story of someone persecuted and tortured because under suspicion of witchery. The protagonist is able to strike down the torturer, led by an unknown inner voice.

TRACK 10
YOU BELONG TO WITCHES is a pagan hymn to witches culture, the wisdom coming from rituals of an ancient past and the fear of the common man of this knowledge.

TRACK 11
The song is CULT OF BAPHOMET, an mystic invocation to the great spirit of knowledge.
