Can you feel them? My hands have traveled far to meet you.
Through barren lands, fiery sand-blown hellscapes, ripping through the ethereal walls that confine space and time.
Callused and worn, these ancient gray hands bring that which you crave. Heaviness, power, speed, truth.
Your eyes grow wide as my fingertips slide around your pathetic neck.
A ringing reverberation creeps into the edges of your perception and we begin.
You gasp as the thrumming and thumping commence. Wild harmonies locked into galloping chaos. Thundering lines echoing through endless chasms.
Your pulse quickens as I grip harder. You reject the drivel that is hashed and rehashed but your bloodshot eyes are an easy read – you were not prepared for this.
I feel the familiar crack as your body falls limp and the crux of our test is here.
Your entity steps away from the languid earthly form and turns.
Follow me to SCEPTRE.
Join my legion and travel to an alternate reality where true heavy metal lives on.
Where, amongst rivers of molten iron, the flame still burns bright.
An aberration filled both with heavenly delights and twisted eternal torment.
Come with me and blaze as a million suns… or return to your flesh suit and rot.
