Behemoth Rising

Diamond-pink—wet book of sea and moon
A priest killed in a climax of debauchery
His eye stuffed in a hole of excrement bliss

A vision--
Drums in the belly of the thunder beast
Tearing the night to shreds—
The cries of wounded animals
caged in the back of your throat
Behemoth rising in the cemetery of terrible love

Breathing on the windows of shame
Lightning faltering at the altar
You offer your body to me—
Corpus Diavolis—
Brimming with blood
Boiling behind the curtains of forbidden love
Alchemy of glands--
Your hands, pallid pentagrams

So rises the behemoth in smoke
Venom buried alive
In the desecrated shrine
Blasphemy kisses you, licks the divine

Bleeding brutality
The vortex is screaming
Throwing its blood against the wall of sky
Tornado in your head
Praying our death
Hard in our erotic obituary
Opening and closing arteries of debauchery
A hot vein and sharp needle
Bring sleep in death’s-head dreams
Bat-faced jealousy

Behemoth rising in the black rain
Your mouth opens like a wound
The punctures of your eyes melting
Tears tears the lovely burn of them
Spiderwebs hear everything
All my poems to you
Those adorable mutants
Aching in the air between our lips

Behemoth rising in the cemetery of terrible love
Mutual suicide
Your mouth opens like a tomb
Planets dying, knives are smiling
The trip of tender torture
It shall be over soon

Dimitar Dimitrov (electronics, keyboards, vocals)
William Kopecky (bass, vocals)

They torment strange instruments and devices like theremin, e-bow, spring-drum, children’s harp...
