about

Necrochamber San Diego, California

NECROCHAMBER, born of blistered soil and hate for mankind within the foul wastelands of San Diego, California, the crags of which emerged in 1998. Heaving and thrusting forth to transform into a vessel in which an atmosphere of revulsion dwells. These vicious black metal rites of hatred and violence emanate with blasting chaotic drumming, evil guitar melodies, and horrific vocals. ... more

Track Name: Lord of the Deceased
Longing immortality
Vessel of heart and mind
Illusions turn to madness
A twisted reality

Cadavers gathered lifeless
Waste of flesh and dreams
Spirits from the other side
Cursed for an eternity

Corpses decomposing
Smell of incense burning
Ancient rites of death
Reanimating the dead

Collecting souls
Keeper of dreams
Figure in black
Not what it seems

Spilling your blood
Scattered remains
Keeper of flesh
Piercing your brain

Preserving decay
Master of death
Haunting your mind
Rotting your dreams

Lord of the dead
Keeper of dreams
Conductor of souls
Lord of the Deceased

Track Name: Void of Infinite Darkness
When the shadows haunt you
Their silent screams at night
A ghostly site, a flickering light
The darkness makes you blind

When there's no one there
Except an evil stare
Alive just made to suffer

A blackened canvas
Painted by shadows and blood
Memories of fog turned cold as ice
Whispering chills throughout the night
A never ending (grand) cycle of spirits taking flight

When the darkness calls you
It's lucid touch so bright
Enhanced visions with no end
Entranced by the pale moonlight

When there's nothing left except emptiness
Gathered in a world of shadows and blood

Void of Infinite Darkness
Through cosmic veils we form
Illusions built on madness
On an endless journey through time

Track Name: Necrochamber
Dungeon of madness
A chamber of evil
Journey through darkness
Death's secrets revealed

Blood... Flesh... Evil... Death...

Rotting inferno
A bloodshed path
Visions deserted
Dismembering the past

Blood, bones, and violence
Your dreams are denied
The reaper is calling
Your carcass is mine

Blood... Flesh... Evil... Death...

Evil awakened
Dead bodies entwined
Death's salvation
Rotting in time

Nightmares unveiled
Demons released
The gates have opened
Evil is unleashed

Blood... Flesh... Evil... Death...

Track Name: A Ceremony for the Dead
A Ceremony for the Dead
Carved from a flesh divine
Never ending cycle
The extinction of mankind

A Ceremony for the Dead
Final journey frozen in time
Blood splattered memories
Extermination of the mind

Helpless, soulless, rotting corpses
The undead spirits in the night
Severed, lifeless, worm infested
Necromantic dreams of a carrion disease

Putrid, filthy, decomposing
Fermenting mort in the moonlight
Starving, mindless, deteriorating
Sacramental flesh of death's desires

A Ceremony for the Dead
Carved from a flesh divine
Blood splattered memories
Resurrecting the deceased

A Ceremony for the Dead
Final journey frozen in time
Deciphered from blood and bones
The extinction of mankind

Helpless, soulless, rotting corpses
The undead spirits in the night
Severed, lifeless, worm infested
Necromantic dreams of a carrion disease

A Ceremony for the Dead
Carved from a flesh divine
Never ending cycle
The extinction of mankind

A ceremony for the Dead
Final journey frozen in time
Blood splattered memories
Extermination of the mind

A Ceremony for the Dead
Deciphered from blood and bones
Desecrating ancient knowledge
Resurrecting the deceased

Track Name: Fleshripper
Master of rejuvenation
Lord of the defleshed
Splitting souls from limbs
Tearing hearts from chests

Flaying through your skin
Ripping through your flesh
Corpses full of sin
Resurrection begins

Bathed in innocent blood
Carved out ceremonial flesh
Sacrificial rites
To be reborn again

Red smoking mirror
Drinking blood and rain
Fertilizing the dead
Resurrection begins

The stench of death
In ceremonial flesh
With carved out eyes
And bloody stitched up vest

With flaps of skin
And dangling limbs
Through rotting scenes
Of bloodstained dreams

Sacrificial rites
Of decomposing flesh
Resurrecting the deceased
Magick ceremonial nights

In festering hides
With bone deposits left
Through channels of blood
To live once again

Track Name: Lunar Hallucinations
Ancient ceremonial magick
Entranced by moonlit skies
Lunar powers revealing
Visions from the third eye

Time and space have emptied
Stars falling from the sky
The Earth shakes and trembles
The dead shall soon be alive

Traveling through the darkness
Many pairs of glowing eyes
The stench of death is rotten
As the undead spirits rise

Dreams turn to nightmares
Mind and soul take flight
Riding on astral wings
Lycanthropic visions begin

Lunar Hallucinations...

The curse can not be lifted
The spell must not be broken
Riddles from the ancient past
Some are not meant to be opened

Stars and planets aligned
Gates of fire in the sky
Time has frozen still
Astral visions of the mind

Dreams of a life beyond
Staring into death's eyes
Blackened heart and buried soul
As the undead there still lie

Cloaked in light and darkness
The astral serpent awakened
Riding on bloodstained wings
Lycanthropic hallucinations

Lunar Hallucinations...

Track Name: Black Wings and Demons Blood
Shadows upon blackened wings
Taking over your mind
Haunting, soulless, frightening
The fear is in your eyes

Corpses laying rotting
Everywhere you see
The instruments of torture
Experimenting with the deceased

There's no hope in crying
Your tears won't set you free
You wished that you were dying
Instead you're trapped here with me

Kicking, screaming, trembling
Your flesh is my disease
Hopeless, endless, emptiness
Your soul belongs to me

Tied to the web of chaos
A dream within a dream
Traveling backwards from the end of time
A necromantic ritual to be

Carved with magick symbols
From a dark and ancient past
Deep within your skin
Where my lust sets you free

Forever in your blood and dreams
Your screams are my desire
Embraced by death and emptiness
A night of endless memories

Carved with magick symbols
From a dark and ancient past
Deep within your skin
Where my lust sets you free

Alone with me in darkness
As I set your spirit free
With Black Wings and Demons Blood
Die with me eternally

Track Name: Rise of the Phantasm
From beyond the realms of death
Awakened from an ancient slumber
Rotting flesh carved memories
Turned to dust, bone, and ash

The path to secret knowledge
Hidden between dimensions and angles
Buried deep within a dream

Bloodstained razors, glowing smoke, burning eyes

Decaying, dreaming bodies
Stuffed full of white lies
The reaper of death is upon you
The only way out is to die

Accept the blood offering
Ancient ones from beyond
Rise phantasm
Open the pathways to the stars

Track Name: Return of the Ancient Ones
Blood of ancient knowledge
Torn from a black hole in the sky
Buried in dreams and caverns
Hidden between space and time

Return of the Ancient Ones
Awake from a death like slumber
Messengers of crawling chaos
Watchers from beyond the abyss

Aeons of secrets revealed
Past, present, and future collide
Signal from the center of infinity
Pantheon of cursed deities

Return of the Ancient Ones
Through gateways aligned in the stars
Bringers of primeval chaos
Cosmic key to the end of time
