Bow down to pain, bow down to death!” M: -”Samaria” I: “Stiff-necked people, you shall never learn! Stiff necked people, hear my voice! Once you betrayed our god, forever you will be punished Flames reach higher, flames reach higher Even the stone has boiled, melting away flesh and bones.” M: -”Rise, rise!” I: -”Fire that touches the sky is the blade and the wrath of Yahveh.” (2R 17 11) M: -”We have brought upon us the punishment of our god (Mi 1 6-7 ; 2R 17 7) Many kings for many lies, impiety and blasphemy (2R 17 17) We have fallen down with those idols” (2R 17 12, 16) I: -”Crush them all from Omri to Hoshea, (1R 16 24; 2R 17 1) Once, twice and third time besieged, (1R 20 1-21; 2R 6 24-33; 7 1-20; 17 3-6; 18 9-12) Shalmaneser king of Assyria and rod of Yahveh (Is 10 5-7; 2R 18 9) Samaria! Bow your head for your lord is merciless” M: -”Samaria!” I: -”Bow your back for your lord is vengeance! Kingdom of Israel was corrupted, afflicted with greed, From the schism to this destruction, The needy, poor, widow and the orphan Were browbeaten, ostracized, hopeless and begging for justice. (Is 1 23; 10 1-2) We, the children of Israel, have sinned against Yahveh, against our jealous god…” (Is 9 6; 37 32) M: -”We have provoked His anger and He has cast us out of His sight (Mi 1 15 ; 2 3 ; 2R 17 23) But He speaks by my mouth, and Ashur shall be chastened Crushed and destroyed, cursed!” (Mi 5 4-5 ; Is 10 24-26; 14 24-25; 2R 19 5-7) I: -”For there is nothing left than the kingdom of…” M: -”Judah!” (Mi 5 1 ; 2R 17 24) I & PoS: -”Samaria! Ruins of Nothingness, of Emptiness and Illusion” M & PoS : -”Samaria!” I & PoS : -”Burning ‘til silence, burning ‘til silence” I: -”Drown in flames.” M: -”Rain of ashes.” I: -”You are all drowning in flames!” PoS: -”Our god has forsaken us and we are falling down. Our god has forsaken us and we are falling down. No more lies, no more sins, no more dead...”

(-587) Jeremiah: Jr. The people in exile: PiE. Jr: -”Josiah was a righteous king, but the others committed adultery with other gods Many of us were exiled to Babylon some years ago (Jr 52 28) And now, I see only fire in the sky, destruction over the city, (Jr 52 13) The temple of my god is defiled and breaking down (2R 24 13) Jerusalem in fire Jerusalem in ruins (2R 25 9-10) (Jr 39 8) Jerusalem was besieged by Nebuchadnezzar and Marduk, his god (2R 25 1) The sin of Jerusalem is greater than the sin of Sodom, (Jr 23 13-14) (Lm 4 6) Yahveh has called Babylon and terrors on every side (Jr 25 8-12) And Death is upon us! (Lm 2 21-22) (Jr 21 8) Sword, famine and pestilence are everywhere in the kingdom of Judah, (Jr 14 12; 18 21; 21 7) Jerusalem is unclean!

Paradigms 03:40
(-538) After the promulgation of the decree of the Persian King Cyrus. Zerubbabel and Jeshua speak together: -”We left Egypt, we are leaving Babylon, we will enter Jerusalem We will enter the Promised Land once again With Yahveh at our side, the golden age is at the end of the path... (-515) With the help of prophets Haggai and Zechariah, Temple is now rebuilt (Ezr 6 14) then our time will come, Yahveh will be one, and his name will be one” (Ze 14 9) (-428, -398) Ezra: -”One God, people, cult, land, city, temple, king. Guilty, forsaken your commandments. (Ezr 9 6-7) Now you must separate yourselves from the people of the land And the foreign women (Ezr 10 11) Bow down to the Law of Yahveh, our god Bow down to the Law of Yahveh, our god.” (Somewhere between -538 and -520) The second Isaiah (chapter 40-55): -”Our god has not failed, our god has been controlling the other nations, (Is 45 1 ; 48 14-15) But why are we not the light of all nations again? (Is 42 6 ; 49 6) Maybe our god is their god too? Maybe Yahveh is the god of all nations? (Is 45 21-22) But He has chosen us, (Is 41 8-10 ; 44 1) we have chosen Him too Old paradigm or new paradigm or not?” (-445 to -433, -425, -398) Nehemiah: -”The city of Jerusalem and the wall were rebuilt, (Ne 6 15) All the people have gathered themselves together as one man (Ne 8 1) The Book of the Law was read by Ezra, Chosen Race, Temple, Law. (Ne 8 8) The seed of Israel separated themselves from all foreigners, (Ezr 10 19, 44) And stood and confessed their sins, and the iniquities of their fathers. (Ne 9 2) Yahveh has warned us through His prophets, He has punished us for all our sins Our time has come, We will not forsake the house of our god (Ne 10 39) Bow down to the Law of Yahveh, our god Bow down to the Law of Yahveh, our god If we do the right things, Yahveh will be with us, Like in the great times of King David, Everyone is righteous, everything is pure Yahveh will remember us, we have to wait...”

(-167) “An unknown scribe” somewhere between 200 and 63 before our era: -”We are waiting for so long now, nothing has changed, no kingdom, no glory, We are not yet the light of the nations, our god has forsaken us. We are still dominated decades after decades, And Persia ruled this world ages ago and now the Greek We are the Righteous among nations, ashamed and alone Our god is nothing but silence, (Ps 83 2) His voice has neither a mouth to speak through nor a hand to write His words. No more prophets and still no savior (R)evolution has come! Our god is the god of all (Is 44, 6 & 24 ; 45 5 & 21) Nations but we are forsaken amongst them Despised and humiliated (Ps 44 14-15) God is nothing but silence (Ps 83 2) We are still waiting and nothing has changed for us I am, among many, trying to rewrite the story of our people, I erase the holy name of Yahveh and His so many other names It has to be a divine revelation, not a human (r)evolution Revelation has come... Our god is the god of all (Is 44, 6 & 24 ; 45 5 & 21) Nations but we are forsaken amongst them Despised and humiliated (Ps 44 14-15) God is nothing but silence (Ps 83 2) We are still waiting and nothing has changed for us Even the facts, we will wait and read the hidden messages inside our Sacred Scriptures... Scriptures... Scriptures...”

about

Following up the 2012 debut "Alpha Theistic", AthanaTheos returns with its second album "Prophetic Era (Or How Yahveh Became The One)" to further pursue the atheistic journey. A journey which is yet to be expanded on upcoming AthanaTheos album.

"Prophetic Era (Or How Yahveh Become The One)" is comprised of 7 songs clocking at around 48 mins. The music can be described as predominantely Death Metal but adjectives as "blackened", "doom", "epic", "atmospheric", "dissonant" and others may be added to tag the music properly. The compositions are varying in many aspects. There's even melodic Gregorian-like chanting incorporated and fully created by the band. You need to listen plenty of times to feel and hear it all.

Given the big concept of five or more albums, the narrative part of the lyrics can not be omitted since lyrics create an integral part of the music. Listening to AthanaTheos without reading lyrics at least once makes for a failure. The lyrics are an integral part of the music. A lot of characters and even nations are brought to life, speaking their story through the lyrics, arguing. It will make you listen to the story, following the journey and thinking about it. As if you were reading a book. All perfectly conveyed through the raw art of the album.

The Prophetic Era is impending!

All this makes for a unique and refreshingly meditative piece of epic death metal, exemplifying and perfecting a sophisticated and mature approach to the form that I thought we’d lost back in the late 1990s.
