The Alchemyst

"The Alchemyst" leads us deeper into the occult rituals of the GrandMaester and his trusted companions.

The throat singing in the intro was performed by g8s. The following mantra is a part of the "Headless Rite" or "Akephalos Ritual", while the rest of the song might be interpreted as impressions of an actual quest as portrayed in the video.

Lyrics

AŌTH ABAŌTH BASYM :> ISAK SABAŌTH IAŌ
A
ŌTH ABAŌTH BASYM :> ISAK SABAŌTH IAŌ
AŌTH ABAŌTH BASYM :> ISAK SABAŌTH IAŌ

This is the story of an experiment.
The story of an initiation.

All of you
who share our fire
who join us in the otherworld
become a part of us.

Find your mission.
Find the keys.
Find your purpose.
Find companions.

I summoned you, headless one
who created earth and heaven
who created night and day
who created the light and the darkness.

---

blurring senses
now it is not the time to keep pretending
there’s nothing and no one behind
as we walk
I better give you credit for
what you do
for this night could rewrite us all

combine again
the precious and the vile
join the ritual
make this the night
of our lives

last time into blackness
I'm the headless one
I find myself invincible
empowered and repentless

daybreak
leaves me breathless
yet we're facing all our inner demons
on the face of the abyss

we better fix ourselves or die

that sorrow beyond all those broken dreams
is just another shadow shining through
another third eye spy is waiting right in line

it might change lives they said
in incandescent light
we call upon thee
for our sacrifice

intensify
the numinous feels right
we call upon thee
for our sacrifice
for our new lives

last time into blackness
we're the headless ones
we find ourselves invincible
empowered and repentless

last dive
into darkness
we were facing all our inner demons
on the face of the abyss

we find ourselves
alive

life can begin
again
we were facing all our inner demons
on the face of the abyss
