From 'By the Light of Their Destruction,' (c) 2019 NWN! Productions and Tranquility Base Publishing


A thing of immortal make – a beast that ought to be
A trinity of terror – eternal fires of the Lycian Way
The omen that beats the forge of Vulcan – inflammable
Breath of methane drifts though the temple of Hephaestus

The rising of Cilicia has – Nam habet ab ortu Ciliciam
From sunset and noontime sea – Ab occasu et meride mare
On the north side of Caria – septentrione Cariam
Qui noctibus aestibus ignem exhalat

Twin horns twist and turn across the length
The head roars a fetid breath, rending the night air
Serpent tail rise in gleaming spectral gaze
Surveys the stars and prepares to strike

Talis Chimera Est, a thing of immortal make
The fire that breathes out the heat of the night
Talis Chimera Est, a beast that ought to be
A trinity of terror, by the light of their destruction


from By the Light of Their Destruction, released May 21, 2019
