about

Verminlord Seattle, Washington

Verminlord emerged from an earthen dungeon in the Pacific North West.

Combining atmospheric depressive black metal with blackened hymns from the darkness.

While the lyrical content and guitar-work paint a dark vision of evil wizards, demonology, and vile knowledge. Vermin Lord is vehemently anti-NSBM/neo-nazi/white supremacy or any form of hate/discrimination.

Track Name: Distant Shores
Howl.
Prepare ye, for the roads ahead
Howl.
They come for your kin in the night
Howl.
Liberties of a forgotten era decay by your bedside
Rivers of fire pave the land

Howl, as you watch your kingdom decay
Sceptres of gold reflect the size of their swarm
Decemation of a nation ensured

Left behind by your gods
You feel my hand on your soul
Retributions you seek, given none

Left behind with rage
Consumed by hunger
Broken, wishing upon stars
Its too late

Your body wilts
Your mind rots
Roots take hold, recycled by nature
An imagine appears in whats left of your mind

Then the object of your life
The whispers of immortality
Appears just out of grasp

A golden whale carries it off, into the ocean
Your last desire is dragged to a distant shore

Forever mocking your futile journey

Howl.
Prepare ye, for the roads ahead
Howl.
They come for your kin in the night
Howl.
Liberties of a forgotten era decay by your bedside
Rivers of fire pave the land
Track Name: Council of Crows
I see your lantern,
Off in the distance.
I hear your breath,
I feel your pulse.

Your death is near.
Your sins cling to your soaked clothes.
Your death is near.
The Council Of Crows,
Feasts.

I see your lantern,
Off in the distance.
I hear your breath,
I feel your pulse.

Your death is near.
Your sins cling to your soaked clothes.
Your death is near.
The Council Of Crows.
Track Name: The Swarm Feasts
Acoyltes tend to you,
Stripped and flayed,
the swarm feasts.

Acoyltes tend to you,
Stripped and flayed,
the swarm feasts.

Acoyltes tend to you,
Stripped and flayed,
the swarm feasts.

Maggots enter your flesh and strip the bone
Rats clean the bone, skeletal show

Your breath is severed from your spirit
Drinking from your own veins, as you become
Vile creature from beyond creation

Acoyltes tend to you,
Stripped and flayed,
the swarm feasts.

Before you know it you're consuming flesh,
your cup overflows.
Stories of your hunger spread through the land,
inspiring divinity.

The dead you leave behind
Are built into an alter in reverence
Drowning on memories of the unknown

That vile deed, your spirit has it self to blame
against its will

You're never escape from my cluthes
Your body is my alter
Your soul is my kindling
You'll never
You'll never escape
You'll never escape
You'll never escape

You'll never escape
You'll never escape
Track Name: Consumed By Soil
Your memories fade away,
The bed is cold,
Your cup is empty.

Your memories fade away,
I clutch your phone,
Nothing left to say.

The nature of regret,
is your new home.
Memories eviscerate your being.
The soil consumes your sorrow.

Your memories fade away,
The bed is cold,
Your cup is empty.

Your memories fade away,
I clutch your phone,
Nothing left to say.

From six feet above
I call you back
Your visceral form
There isn't much left.
You return to me,
A fraction of you.

There is nothing left of me.
Track Name: Death Of A Warlock (Part I & II)
Death Of A Warlock Part I

You travel for days,
Sent forth to cleanse the way,
Broken sword, and pestilence,
Are all that are left in your wake.

Your sins are left behind.
Washed off by the tempest.
Bowing in reverence,
For a lack of faith.
Clear your mind,
You're empty inside.

Bow down mortals.
Bow down mortals.
Bow down mortals.

You cleanse your blade,
On the innocent,
Teeth are raw from consuming the dead.

Upon the river,
Feeling something inside,
You find a broken child.

You were left behind,
no soul in sight.
Your empty mind,
could be so powerful.

Lend yourself to me.
Lend yourself to me.
Lend yourself to me.
Lend yourself to me.

Lend yourself to me.
Lend yourself to me.
Lend yourself to me.

Death Of A Warlock Part II

I hear your voice,
You're only repeating.
Losing your empathy.

I hear your voice,
You're only repeating.
Losing your empathy.

You cast away what was real,
Your kingdom is gone.

You think you were chosen?
You just wanted attention.

On the floor bare,
look at yourself.
Just a spoiled servant,
no better than kings.

Your ideology is lost.
Thought you were the teacher,
shown truth by a dying child.

Now, revenge is cast aside
Break your promise,
Break the seal and leave behind the oath.
Your only wealth is in the dead.

You are now free to do what you want,
with open mind and heart.
With open eyes you look at your life.
Fuck your enterprise.
Fuck your shit.
Track Name: She Loves Me, She Loves Me Not (She Wants Revenge Cover)
Felt too much, did she feel a thing?
Long, dark hair, never saw her cry
In two halves I was torn
My maybe love who wouldn't even try

She loves me, she loves me not [2x]

I saw you only yesterday
We shared a smile, then went our separate ways
Perhaps one day? never mind
All the nights we shared, were we just killing time?

She loves me, she loves me not [2x]

For all the things I said to her and all the ways I tried
And all the things I did for her, they're lost with one goodbye

She loves me, she love me not

She loves me, she loves me not [2x]

For all the things I said to her and all the ways I tried
And all the things I did for her were lost with one goodbye

She loves me, she love me not

She loves me, she loves me not
Track Name: Never Gunna Give You Up (Rick Astley Cover)
We're no strangers to love
You know the rules and so do I
A full commitment's what I'm thinking of
You wouldn't get this from any other guy

I just wanna tell you how I'm feeling
Gotta make you understand

Never gonna give you up
Never gonna let you down
Never gonna run around and desert you
Never gonna make you cry
Never gonna say goodbye
Never gonna tell a lie and hurt you

We've known each other for so long
Your heart's been aching, but
You're too shy to say it
Inside, we both know what's been going on
We know the game and we're gonna play it

And if you ask me how I'm feeling
Don't tell me you're too blind to see

Never gonna give you up
Never gonna let you down
Never gonna run around and desert you
Never gonna make you cry
Never gonna say goodbye
Never gonna tell a lie and hurt you
