At the point most north There’s a mystifying cave Twelve warriors by my side Pledged to fight to the grave Bound by the endless quest The spoils of resource raids Mercenary method of survival So twisted so depraved Deranged Survival Depraved Devine execution Enraged Fight hard with your life Take a glimpse at prosperity Step into the fray Insane We profit from pain Monstrous premonition On a cold and bloody mission Undone Once traumatized by my method of survival I’m desensitized Volatile environment Cave massive yet confined Ethereal surroundings making perfect for a bloody domination Kill what’s inside Fight for your pride Soon we’ll be ripping through flesh Feel the rush Savor the death Whip to the skull Axe to the neck* Only one commands the rest Rapidly identified Cut off his arms Cut off his head One by one frantically hacked Falling victim to my axe Pompous dreams of wealthy lives Wealth is misery in disguise Heinous acts of savagery Only means to survive Take what’s yours Escape this hell A violent wage Into the caves Violence misery Your sacrifice has set us free Violence misery

Captivity 03:44
Cold rolled steel bound to this odious cage Forced to breathe in this fetor of decay Optimism lost determination’s end Chains bloodied burrowing into my skin Losing grasp of my mind Lost in thought I’m terrorized Senses overwhelmed with the horror Impending death I fantasized Suffering soldier sings suicide Only one escape identified Standing on the edge of psychological defeat Cold rolled steel bound to this odious cage Forced to breathe in this fetor of decay Piteous body left emaciated Last ounce of strength End this life Soul eroded Consequence of a man confined Cold Captive Come to terms with suicide Cold Pathetic

Structural collapse Apocalyptic aftermath A city trapped in Hell Plagued by the state of war Let the Lords indulge Cast aside the meek Wealth makes a mockery of humanity There’s a crisis at hand The fruits of war, a deception Impoverished land Insanity Trading blood for profit Insanity Human disregard The masses dying off Spreading the disease The priest begs the witch Absolute calamity Temperature is rising This just can’t be real There’s no sense in crying The only cure is termination Pulse is rising I’m close to the edge Tremors erupting Bloodlust contamination Eyes knocked back into my head It won’t stop until it's stained in blood This land is stained in blood Under my command The fruits of war Deception Victory skews Perception Pure lust for the taste of blood This sickness starts at birth Never had an answer Never known why I’ve had to quench this thirst Morally inept Socially declined Seclusion becomes my hearse Pure lust for the taste of blood This sickness ends in death Bloodlust Contamination Forced death to end suffering

Spineless morons Life fulfilled Blinded by complacency Portrait of stability entirely falsified Coaxed by mediocrity Deluded delight Entirely oblivious Disorder in plain sight Painfully erase the herd of cowards Holy absolution Immolation Sanctify the masses Spark the flames of purity Absolution through immolation Satisfy god end suffering Your act of contrition End sin entirely Mass immolation Soaring flames of purity Carry out the will of god Sinners swallowed by the flames Enslaved by god The Herd of cowards Blind sheep following his voice Feeble mind Feeble souls deceived
5.
Imperial state corroded from within Impostor in the ranks Lurking threat unidentified Division of authority Retaliation obsolete Masked behind the political elite Lost control, nation in peril Infiltrated Operations ceased, snuff out the enemy Despotic dissolution, a murder justified Homicidal rage, driving me insane Despotic dissolution, a murder justified Years of suppression, years of deceit Fantasize the morbidity Carry out the given order Doomed to a violent execution Body restrained Brought into this world of pain Tormented for hours Endure the misery Skull throbbing from relentless head trauma Body overwhelmed by physical abuse Brought into this world of fucking pain Lifeless soul Beg for death til the end
6.
Pain has ruled your mind Your thoughts, you’re lost, confined The threads of sanity unwound Ripped from the seams of your brain Body and soul - Separated Self-induced pain rules your mind Fingers dug beneath your skin A twisted pleasure you will find Living in hell running out of time Find the cure for your sick mind Flesh peeled back, bones revealed Risk of infection, you’ll never heal Body suffering from corrosion Skin and bone on the wane Overcome by your compulsion Self-inflicted withering away The blood has started pouring The satisfaction of enduring Your body disintegrating Skin peeled away, you’re wearing thin Hellish reality a paradox Escape the chaos Escape your thoughts Use the pain to cope Fall to ashes Reap what you sow Disintegrating, pain ruled your mind Disintegrating, you’re terrified

World Decay 03:17
I can’t be stopped Enhanced sensation I feel a rush Wreak havoc on my mind  Synthetic solution Absolute apathy Disastrous Dissolution Entirely Erased Set me free I’ve got the itch Searching for a will to live Never mind the mind recess Voluntary ignorance I’ve let my world decay My sanity unkempt Set me free I’ve got the itch Searching for my will to live Blinded by my own desires In the end I lost the power Futile attempt at life Laid to an early grave Addicted to the power I ended up a slave Tried to cope with this cerebral disease Soon I’ll be laid to rest I’m finally freed
8.
Murderous monstrosity Cataclysmic creation Unholy upheaval Immoral incantation Born to devour the Earth Manifestation of evil Laid dormant for eons Inciting delirium Voices surging through my head Dreaded consequence Chaos filled mind Conscience confined Overwhelming power Lasting for hours I’m lost in hate Against the grain In your blood I’m sanctified Intentions intensified I close my eyes Death by my side Merchant of deception and creator of life Sacrifice willing to die Wretched illusions A product of Hell Wretched illusions Merchant of death Intoxicating homicide Tracking you down Hunting with pride Intoxicating homicide In your blood I’m sanctified
9.
Dawn of Time 04:12
Authoritative niche Shrouded in secrecy Omnipotent reign Mutilation of democracy Orchestrators of violence Sworn to silence Manipulate the world Take hold of society Apolitical sect Existing in obscurity Destiny thwarted by celestial beings Effortless control of this moronic regime Minimal resistance from our softened minds Under control since the dawn of time Domination We have no will No cognizant mind Senseless existence A blood sacrifice Destiny’s changed The time is nigh Our bodies offered Will it suffice We have no will No cognizant mind Our leaders are puppets For those up high Men with no motive They came from the sky To toy with humans To watch us die Destiny thwarted by celestial beings Effortless control of this moronic regime Minimal resistance from our softened minds Under control since the dawn of time

Consumed 04:29
Consumed True intentions exposed Heinous betrayal A new victim tortured to delirium A personal hell I’ve devised Desecration of humanity Disobedience met with brutality Victim stripped naked Strapped to the boats Appendages protruding Force milk and boney Pour it in your eyes Pour it in your throat The insects take notice Your flesh exposed Clinging to life You’re almost there Death by infection Left with a cold Consumed Hour by hour the insects carve away Your body slowly consumed Sail into your fate Serpent of sedition Greed Motivation Killed by your desire Food for the parasites

about

The band’s blistering new full length platter, Wretched Illusions, raises the stakes with undeniable and unrelenting anthems like “Bloodlust Contamination,” “World Decay,” “Corroded from Within,” and album opener “Ripping Through Flesh.” Each of the record’s ten tracks is a certified ripper, keeping those baseball bat swings coming, over and over.

Devotees of influential death metal merchants like Blood Red Throne (Norway), Gorguts (Canada), and Grave (Sweden) have a new American band to champion. Creeping Death draw liberally from the template set by those bands along with the speed of early Sepultura (Brazil) and the hammering epic crush of Bolt Thrower (England). All of these classic sounds are reforged together and reflected through Creeping Death’s own fresh and unique prism.
