ARMAGEDDON HOLOCAUST - Dies Irae
The 'lost' album - 10th Anniversary Edition First Release

ARMAGEDDON HOLOCAUST had a relatively short life. They appeared in 1999 as a one-off project band and released one album "Into Total Destruction" (2000) before disbanded. In 2002 they managed to resurrect themselves and continued to release another 2 albums: "Radioactive Zone 245" (2003) and "Nekrofonik" (2004) before disbanded again in 2004. Most diehard ARMAGEDDON HOLOCAUST's fans have enjoyed their Trilogy of albums, but not so many have known about the existence of the 'lost' 2003 album "Dies Irae" (let alone hearing the material), which was intended to be released in 2004.

It was greatly anticipated as it is mentioned on "Radioactive Zone 245" inlay (THT Productions version), but all of the sudden it never happened, and instead the band rushed themselves to record another album "Nekrofonik" only in 10 hours with the whole new material. "Dies Irae" was never released to public, as the rights to the recording master was kept by Dark Thriller (the main songwriter of this album) who left the band in late 2003.

The album itself is now publicly available, after more than 10 years since it was recorded.

Jeff Arwadi, then also played in Armageddon Holocaust as Meister J until 2004, re-mastered the whole album in August 2013.

Album line-up:
Dark Thriller: guitars, bass
Doctor D: drums, vokills, noises, samples & FX
Meister J: guitars, vokills, all guitar solos, drum programming on Track 1, 3 & 5

Track Name: The Old One Shall Be Destroyed
Nothing is more paralyzing
Than our acid clouds in the sky
Darkness, who seems to rule the Earth
Through it's finest incarnation
Grade-A horror is a future uncertain
Fear has already taken it's place
Through wars and exploitation we ride
Burn every side of our mother's skin
Alive or dead, no one shall differentiate
Regeneration is a mere zombificaton
Toxic storm shall arriving in seconds
Where humans dwell in pains
The old one shall be destroyed
Global nihilistic annihilation
No one shall remain as a living being
Vanishing or being perished
Closer to a blackest void, void...
Blood and fire came as one
Solid hunger for a victorious state
Driven by desire for immortality
Us, shall inherit the coming ages
Watching the Earth's destruction
Through cosmic intermission
Major earthquakes and volcanic eruptions
Ultimate disaster's grand manifestation
Track Name: Events in a Nucleus
Hours of madness have arrived
Never to waste a nano-second
The old ball has waited for its demise
It's about time to make it happen
When they gather to form a suicidal posture
Together they shall fall, and soon be forgotten
Death comes to the center of the Earth
Initiated by series of bizarre events
Enhancing the pain to this already bitter life
Ultimate diminishing process has begun
From now on, who will say "I shall bear all my pains"?
Only fools of the fools, who put their lives on themselves
This suffering will never ever stop
Escalating at the end of the line
Reaching its peak where no one shall survive
Death comes to the center of the Earth
Initiated by series of bizarre events
Enhancing the pain to this already bitter life
Ultimate diminishing process has begun
Only fools of the fools, who put their lives on themselves
Track Name: Kataklysmic Power
Kataklysmic Power - Nihilistic Destruction Machine
Reality's horrors - Annihilation principles of nature
Tidal waves, Tsunami's anger manifesto
Raging storms, thunders and hurricanes
The earthquakes, cracks in the underworld
Volcanoes, vomiting fire and brimstone
Kataklysmic Power - Nihilistic Destruction Machine
Reality's horrors - Annihilation principles of nature
Thousands people die at one single strike
But it's not a murder, it's an act of mother
We've spent ages for all unrelenting exploitations
To our only place where we share the use of oxygen
Shall a haven destroy its inhabitants
Tranquility transformed into chaos
Humankind is too weak to comprehend
Even for the ways of its survival
Die at the beginning of apocalyptic surge
Universe is storming unto you in anger
You have no right to choose to stay alive
You have no right to choose how you die
Tidal waves, Tsunami's anger manifesto
Raging storms, thunders and hurricanes
The earthquakes, cracks in the underworld
Face the power...
Track Name: Retropsychosis
In the name of noise and distortion
They invade your mind with metallic molecules
1984 is here, analog sound's your lover
Tunes of the old, come to reign your heart
You are a pure Speed Metal generation
Trapped in this post-modern depression
You are not awaken to share confusion
Your time is the past, keep thrashing 'till last
Now is time for the steel carnival
The amps are set to the max
For the love of full distortions
And the screaming sounds of feedback
You are a pure Speed Metal generation
Trapped in this post-modern depression
You are here for the lo-fi infatuation
Always play it fast, keep thrashing 'till last
Retropsychosis
You are a pure Speed metal generation
Trapped in this post-modern depression
You're not here for the rock n' roll tradition
Always play it fast, keep thrashing 'till last
Track Name: Pools of Blood
There will be an era for global war
Nations are in battle against nations
Provoked by only one insignificant issue
We were excessively easy to be deceived
One saw great obliteration only human could make
Triggered by a choice under the power of free will
In the blood there is a seed of depravity
Not as an instinct, but the true nature of man
There is no safe place for peace to dwell here
Every second is a time for violence
When the countries become pools of blood
And stench of rotten corpses fills the atmosphere
Inhaling death in every breath you take
You cannot defend against your wish of death
Fire will sweep away everything that exists
Complete annihilation will finally be done
To the place where all the falsehood lies
The only place we name it Earth
Track Name: The Deceiver's Last Stand
Thick smoke filled up the sky
The clouds were set ablaze
Raining fire started to fall
To fall upon the lands of the wasted
All heavens burning, oxygen's carbonized
Treasures of this once paradise
They shall be vanished for eternity
Destruction is at the hand of the Executioner
A sudden appearance of global doom
Sun will never rise again
Damnation is coming to this Earth
Consuming all that exists
Wars and conflicts among all nations
Unity and peace were never achieved
Retribution is waiting for those who deserve
Impending doom - The deceiver's last stand
Firestorms, blazing inferno
Death's door is open for mankind
Marching towards the last episode
Where destruction comes to eliminate
The falsehood of all humanity
Track Name: Universal Doom
Imminent is the grand universal doom
At a journey within our time and space
Marching, towards the end of our dimensions
...and we are waiting for our demise
The end of industrial sophistication
The end of substantial complexity
The end of rational assimilation
The end of holistic sequence
The end of all religious values
The end of pretense and hypocrisy
The end of arrogance and self-divinity
The end of philosophical theories
The end of political standards
The end of economical systems
The end of governmental principles
The end of norms and constitutions
The end of everything created by man
