The group’s signature song, this track appears in no less than 6 versions.

The songs title comes from a 1929 Robert E. Howard story of the same name, although the rest of the song does not actually relate to the story. Ricky just liked the image conjured by the story’s title.

There was an MV for this song released on June 30th 2016. The MV was created by m7kenji.

English Lyrics
Courtesy of NECRONOMIDOL / Ricky Wilson

Fluorescent tubes flicker underground
The city’s smell wafting from sewers below

Backstreets too narrow to run
Tonight this rusting alley holds no fear

On the brink of Revelation
Enlightened by prophecy
Malice
Extremity
Let it burn

Unfurl black wings
Rend the midnight darkness
With invisible talons

Scattering skulls like the stars in the sky
Ultradimensional harbinger of terror
Nightgaunt

Farewell spring breeze
Farewell autumn leaves
The loneliness of the last crescent moon

The twinkling city, the silence of nature
All things must come to an End

Onward to a New Age
Cast off your mortal shell
And ascend

Unfurl black wings
Rend the midnight darkness
With invisible talons

Scattering skulls like the stars in the sky
Ultradimensional harbinger of terror
Nightgaunt

Rend steel and stone
Stain red the seven seas
With invisible talons

Bring forth Armageddon
Chosen servant of the Overfiend
Nightgaunt

Rend the midnight darkness
My invisible talons

Onward to the New Age
My invisible talons

The call of the Other Side
My invisible talons

Embrace the End
My invisible talons

Unfurl black wings
Rend the midnight darkness
With invisible talons

Scattering skulls like the stars in the sky
Ultradimensional harbinger of terror
Nightgaunt

Unfurl black wings
We have come to annihilate all good
Burning bright

Unfurl black wings
Rend the midnight darkness
With invisible talons

Scattering skulls like the stars in the sky
Ultradimensional harbinger of terror
Nightgaunt
