THE FINAL TYRANNY (2021)
Primero cuatro temas para lo que se puede intuir casi como una superbanda que se las arregla para ofrecer un sonido compacto lleno de tecnicismo que se mueven en terrenos del death y el black a partes iguales. A diferencia de muchas propuestas de estilo similares Demon King destaca por unas ideas alejadas de los convencionalismo y las complejidades innecesarias como bien dejan claro con un tema inicial como "Tyrannical Reign of the Deceiver" en donde el oyente puede disfrutar en medio de la amalgama de riffs y tecnicismo de un regusto al black sinfónico más clásico. Este aspecto centrado en las influencias de los sonidos clásicos se muestra a lo largo d todo el EP, haciendo acto de presencia cuando parece que la banda va a abordar terrenos más técnicos y modernos, para sorprendernos con secciones que tiene mucho que ver con elementos del black ambiental. El peso del death también es importante, repleto de riffs complejos, técnicos y disonantes que no renuncian a la contundencia pero sin adentrarse del todo por terrenos demasiados trillados. Las voces al mismos tiempo muestran una disposición a las influencias death pero más de una vez nos veremos sorprendidos con algunas secciones que pueden recordar al black sinfónico. Una primera toma de contacto con una banda llamada a grandes cotas en futuras ediciones. (8,4).




1. Tyrannical Reign of the Deceiver 03:50
FOR AGES THE WORLD DID HOLD THE COMING OF ONE WHICH WOULD USHER IN THE ERA OF DIN AND THE CHIEFTANS THEY CALLED UPON DISORDER AS ORDER THEIR ALLY FOR THE CLASP WITHIN MULTITUDES SURRENDER TO HIM AS THEIR GOD ARRIVE THE ONE WHO COMES WITH WONDERS THREE AND CALLS THE RIDING FOUR FUEL THE FLAMES OF TORMENT WITH STONES AND STOCK OF MEN DECEPTION DOES TAKE HOLD AS THE WORLD BURNS FROM DEPTHS OF THE ABYSS COMES A CALL FROM THE HIDDEN MASTER WITH WORDS LIKE SMOKE CHOKING ALL WHO WOULD HEAR HIM CALLING FOR ALLEGIANCE THEIR DOOM KNOCKS AT THE DOOR HE COMES WITH THE WILL TO SERVE HIDDEN AND DEMONIC ACCORDS THEY CANNOT SEE THE TRUTH THE ORDER SEALS THEIR DAMNATION AS A FLAME IS MADE TO TOUCH DOWN FROM THE SKY THE CLOUDS DO PART TO EXPOSE THE HERD TO THE LIES OF DROSS BEGUILING THEM THEY CANNOT SEE THE TRUTH THEIR HEARTS ARE SEALED WITH MALICE BINDING THME TO HELL FOREVER AND THE MAN BENT ON REVENGE HE COMES TO THE PALACE SHROUDED IN MYSTERY AND TAKING HIS HAND TO THE BLADE HE'S SEEN AND DRAGGED BEFORE THE MAJESTIC COUNTENANCE WHAT IS IT YOU SEE? THIS DEVIL ASKED HIS FOE AND DEMANDED HIS CALLING DO YOU KNOW WHAT YOU DO? HAVE YOU COME TO DIE AS YOUR FATHER SEES YOU? WITH A STRENGTH UNSEEN IN MEN HE DID STAND WITH DEFIANCE AS THE THRONGS LOOKED ON AND SAID, "YOU MAY SLAY ME BY THE SWORD" BUT BEFORE ANOTHER WORD HE WAS DEAD ON THE FLOOR WITH THE CHALLENGER RESTED THERE REMAINED ONLY ONE THE FEAR OF DEATH - IT GRIPS THE LAND AND FORCES THEM TO BOW TO THE THING THAT WILL FORGE DAMNATION KEEPING THEM ENSLAVED IS THE GAME OF CONQUEST  
2. Invoking the Spirit of Chaos 04:18
  heed the call of another’s fate
and break the gate - fell eons wake
with this fallen’s song - its deathknells grew
to attest its season

unhilt the fates of thalcoria - the wicked two
that spread false worship
to tempt the world with euphoria’s call
and their invocation’s ruin

now unbound these bringers of chaos
made whole once more shall imbue
minds and hearts with hatred unchecked
turning peace into war as the latter ensues

your world shall burn
the two did exclaim - and with wonders they called
to them all - the enslaved - they shall toil in this day
causing disorder and all to falter

within the depths of the suffering stood
a man relieved of all his want
crushed is his spirit but he’s born again new
pushed to his limit further falling under

he yearned and called for the death of this dying order
leading opposition as his foes did call sedition
all in due time they’ll be slaughtered

feast and gore yourselves on the flesh of the ones that betrayed the sacred trust

hallow - and carved inside
the halls of dominions eschewed
by the ones who seek to corrupt the earth
in line with the foes of truth

in kind - the two will follow
topping the records of the rest
throwing their spells upon nations born
by the one eyed liar

the false prophet sees only lies and does toil on nothingness so does this world
in time they’ll go far into rebellion
looking toward the stars for truths of life and death - they’ll find not one
the spirit dwells and lives on vying for your death

in a time of madness charging forth from the shadows
she breeds contempt for the apex in the breasts of lowly slaves and vermin

from the other comes the spark and flame of the end of days
three have fallen - one has risen
victorious none shall be

with this invocation all shall be realized
as we prepare the way
and the crestfallen all will beg forgiveness

for the trawl is false and all shall call from the flames of perdition
seeking to be saved - our glory comes
these fallen fools beg for mercy
3. Transmutation of the Artilect 04:22  
 from an ancient tome came instructions to behold
the artilect - to construct its frame
combining all the things that the book did name
a task reserved for the highest station

and the first it does call for ethereal blue
to constrict the blood and cause it to
remain within the edifice
the artificial-magical frame

then you must conjure the demon from the dark
to ensure that process is sound
fire the machine to assimilate
the artificial mind with the earthen mound

as we harness this power in the dead of night
we can see victory as our creature takes flight
the transmutation of unholy things
a chimerical bend of creation

as the wind blows from the east
a new evil grows born of technology
the transmutation of the artilect
the creator of creation is balked

and with that the ignorant masses did gather
and huddled together for a glimpse of their lord
an overt paragon
a true wonder of science and alchemy

with the final steps done we come to the precipice
lo! we shall rule over them - as we’ve been - for eternity
the grandest enigma compounds

(chorus)

these fools they do not see
the truth will evade them for all eternity

in a time bereft of reason
they will concede to genetic manipulations
as a means to solve the ills of the world
they will begin to look to themselves as gods

with the signs now confirmed this eve
of the final days
this empire shall come crashing down
in a furious blaze

and the people shall mourn its death - a sign conferred
from the days of prophecy and mysteries of old
for fifty thousand years they shall lay
in judgement of their crimes

as the sun rises from the west
a sign is confirmed - the end is now at hand
the people shall eat of the fruit of the tree
condemned is mortal man

traveling deep into the unknown
all those who had sworn an oath with their lives
hopelessly tore at the walls around them
as the wardens of perdition closed in

abandon all hope
the angel said to the forlorn line
there is no escape so embrace, all, your fate
seethe within now - and for all time
4. The Watcher, Wreathed in Flame 05:12
in the throes of passions eased i’m bereft of need or want this fallen creature doth bleed needlessly as he’s placed through hell and horrors of a mind of a tortuous kind by my design shall his fate become transformed of the culling of hope as his mind doth decay showing him atrocities nobody should bear illusion trapped within his own bitter and seething realm marked for death this slave of the world damned for things he did not see like a fool he answered the call we are legion; we are king with this fallen wretch before me i will drive him on to the depths of depravity i will drive him on i’ll destroy his world this broken tortured soul and within this calloused heart was laid waste indeed - any semblance of what came before the conquering of his humanity conquering of his faith all is lost now behold the fallen extolling the wretched as a glorious thing we are the ones that the fallen sullen did not perceive we are the ones through your hearts (it’s desires) we lead your weakness grows all at once as you fall asunder your broken and feeble will we are the hidden ones who are always watching within when concerning its fate we can see you are dead and already buried and on all accounts we will lead you towards a terrible fate we all obey the fools of the world we all obey condemned for atrocities we all obey unquestioning thrall we all obey those who beckon from behind the veil wreathed in flame is the one whom the beckoning call it flows forth from the master of the caller
