    CD in Jewel case with 8 page booklet with all the lyrics included! Awesome artwork by André Coelho.

    If you like aggressive thrash with plenty of dynamics, this record is for you. Shamelessly drinking inspiration from the gods of thrash metal from the 80's, and adding their personal modern flavour to the mix, Terror Empire have reached a strong balance with "Obscurity Rising". The riffs are as intricate as pure thrash fans righteously demand, and the rhythmic section adds a brutal edge only matched by the vocals.

    Two years after debut album "The Empire Strikes Black" that got high reviews from all over the globe, Terror Empire returns with its best album to date.

    Expect a brutal, unpredictable frenzy of thrash metal.

    Includes unlimited streaming of Obscurity Rising via the free Bandcamp app, plus high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more.

Track Name: You'll Never See Us Coming
i see you steal - they beg - we kill - you pay - they slay - surrender - no more will i ever conform to die praying on my knees

you'll never see us coming - you'll never feel us arrive - we'll haunt when you're dreaming - no chance to survive - bow down - time to execute your punishment - beg for mercy - i can’t hear you - stand down - time to take back what was never yours - beg for mercy - i can’t hear you - beg for mercy - i won’t hear you

[solo: rui]

don’t look back - we’re not going that way - lead or follow - get the fuck out of the way - i drink poison to kill my enemies - i might die but not on my knees

no more will i ever conform - you’ll fucking die on your knees
Track Name: Burn the Flags
nations falling by speculation - disintegration of civilization - contemplation of dehumanization - degradation by obligation
our lives ruled by markets - invisible heads that set the rules - nations conquered by debt
but we owe what and to whom?

burn the flags - independence is gone

under constant strangulation - over unknown domination - living under provocation
just a sadistic humiliation

subdued to their tyranny - overwhelmed by hostility - we see our freedom burn - we let our freedom burn

burn the flags - independence is gone

feed the satiated with the starvation of the starved
enrich the rich with the poverty of the poor burn the nations you want to overtake
enslave the populations you want to dominate

an endless struggle - a decadent survival
trampled and abused by faceless people
Track Name: Times of War
conflict-hungry leaders - rising around the world - foaming hate and intolerance
repeating the same old script - disgusting populism - inflame global tension

the fuse has been lit - the process has begun

times of cynicism, hatred and friction provocations and permanent threats
weapons are counted and pointed to enemies
the tension thickens for the impending conflict

the fuse has been lit - the process has begun
so grab your gun and prepare yourself to war

the conflict is on - we’re living times
we’re living times of war

war… challenging actions - defying attitudes
fan the flames all over the world

[solos: nuno / rui]

the conflict is on - we’re living times
we’re living times of war - there’s no way out
we’re living times - we’re living times of war

war! war! war! time's up!
Track Name: Holy Greed
you want more than just a piece - praying for more - no matter how - seeking for more
killing for more - you have to fill - the void of your soul

you do what it takes - to get what you want
stepping if you have to - stabbing if you need to - you want it all - you do what it takes
to get what you want - stabbing if you need to
...get what you want

holy greed that makes you sick - that rips your skin - that makes you blind - a creeping worm that keeps you weak - that makes you sick
that rips your skin

your obsession for possession - it’s a road of destruction - struggle to get - more and more
but never filling - the void of your soul

[solos: rui / nuno / rui]

...so much hate that rips your skin
Track Name: Lust
twisted - sick - deadly sinner - impure
unstable - completely insane - blood boils from under my skin - ripping and shredding - forcing me to sin - forcing the descent

obsessed, possessed, completely out of order
depraved, unbound, i fucking want it all

one on one, come on - a competition for domination - i'll spare you some of my guilt
if you feed me with your poison

incite your own vanity - ignite my sheer fucking lunacy - corrupt your holy beliefs - master the demise of this denial... no!

[solos: nuno / rui]
Track Name: Death Wish
you see me drowning in blood - you know i’m swimming with sharks - you watch the bridges burning - you see the tables turning

i will forgive you
but i won’t forget you

death wish: destruction
death wish: compulsion

i find myself driven by fear of letting go of who i am - these random thoughts, they just appear - i am becoming who you are

[solo: rui]

you see me trapped under ice - you tied the anchor on my neck [you did] - you watch me blind in the dark - but now I’m set to attack [...and i will attack you]

[solos: nuno / rui]

i’m digging my own grave every fucking day
don’t you think i’d know better?
i’m digging my own grave every fucking day
does that make you feel better?
Track Name: Feast of the Wretched
[solo: nuno]

taking control of information - blanking the critical thinking - molding and numbing the young minds - guiding them to a life of acceptance

the less we know - the more we obey
this is the way - they reign
the more we know - the less we obey
this is the way we reign
welcome to the feast of the wretched

[solo: nuno]

wealth concentration empowers the system
imposing on us misery and decay - it shreds and keeps us apart - that’s the way they can reign

so just a few can have so much - to many will have nothing

[solos: rui / nuno]
Track Name: Soldiers of Nothing
soulless people - submissive flesh - obedient followers - shadows of themselves - become soldiers of nothing - soldiers with no cause

driven by blood and violence
intolerance and hate

ruthless killers that fight for blood and fire
that fight for nothing - ruthless killers that fight for blood and fire - soldiers of nothing

abandoned people - forsaken by society
thicken now the rows of an army
powered by lost souls - hopeless people

breathe, speak, move, at masters’ orders
obey, shoot, kill, at masters' orders

[solos: nuno / rui / nuno / nuno]

used and abused - fighting and killing
in a strange land - for a false cause
dehumanizing the other
Track Name: New Dictators
they plot lies - fake their cries - inflict the strike - incite the fight - they use faith - to inflame hate - victimize - to justify - they point fingers - make accusations - divide us all
for better control - they create panic spreading anger - fracturing all to weaken us

acclaim – the new dictators

they yell hard - creating noise - simply to disguise the dearth of ideas - manipulating
situations to arise as a solution - hate doctrines - hostile speeches - incite violence
destroying trust - they create panic spreading anger - fracturing all to weaken us

it’s the same old evil proclaimed by new lords
acclaim them now - the lords of our times

it’s the same old evil proclaimed by new lords
the sickness - the madness - a vision from the past

acclaim them now - the lords of our times
…the past

[solos: rui / gus drax]
