about

There were a few complications during the recording of the Spiritual Eclipse album. Drums were recorded between 18. – 26 .5.2016 at the A-ZYL Studio. All vocals, guitars and bass were recorded at the rehearsal room of Sekhmet during the dates 30.5.2016 – 26.6.2016. Mastering and mixing was done in the Kraken Studio Ljubljana in July and August 2016. Intro Eclipse and other orchestral instruments were composed by Stepa. Spiritual Eclipse is a conceptual album, and all of its lyrics were written by Agares. The main structure of all songs was composed by Set with big help of Stepa and Warlord. Their contribution added the true face of the new album.

This music is dedicated to our friends, who supported us and who have influenced us. We would like to mention mainly Zdenek ,,ULVBERTH” Hlisnikovky, Trond ,,NEFAS” Brathen and Vladimir ,,VLAD BLASPHEMER” Dedek. 666 Hails to you!!!

Special thanks go to Stepa, because he produced this new album of Sekhmet. We are really satisfied with his work.

We would also like to thank the following people for their contribution and assistance with the recording of our album Spiritual Eclipse:
Láda & A-ZYL, Beherit, Stepa, Mat & Kraken Studio, Steffan & Khaos Diktator Design, David & SORT, Strny & Werewolf prod., Surtur & Immortal Frost prod. & Ars Veneficium, Alastor Paul, Rene Varulf, Mylai and Tomáš Corn.


For the whole era of her existence, SEKHMET walks her path that she has chosen at the beginning of times. Not enemies nor glory nor wealth did force this beast to abandon the path of hatred. She still holds her sword above the surface of the underground with pride, and she sets her shield against all traitors, trends, gold and false glory, which can infect mighty bodies of beasts as a virus and turn them into feeble carcasses.

We do support the Black Metal underground with our music, and we turn our faces away from the current trend.The dark waters of the underground have to stay drowned in the depths of darkness and Evil, the essence of which remains a mystery to us all.

SPIRITUAL ECLIPSE raises a huge black storm in the waters of the underground in the attempt to extinguish this flame of commercial trends! From Darkness to Darkness!

Stay proud! Do not forget your path! Stay real underground!

Track Name: RELIGIOUS INFECTION
Religious Infection

They are lost, lost in their lives, abandoned by friends, cast away
Left behind, disinherited and ruined, there appears to be no escape
Escape from the grievous reality, where all has fell apart
They yearn for facile rescue, they are now ready to convert

Collapsed into despair and gloom
For they lost what they held most dear
But they refuse to see
That the doing was their own

Deprived of their will they let
The disease to spread and corrupt their minds
And then they simply fall
Into snares that were long set

As a herd of calves with unpretentious
Spirits they roam around and await a shepherd to come

To lead the way, to show them to their barns
To feed them comforting lies and fill their weakened hearts

In deepest fear, they show who they are
And blindly follow anyone

Collapsed into despair and gloom
For they lost what they held most dear
But they refuse to see
That the doing was their own

Deprived of their will they let
The disease to spread and corrupt their minds
And then they simply fall
Into snares that were long set

In hardest times, when all is lost
When plague, war and hunger strike
The weakness awakes and determination dies
With illusion of effortless deliverance herdsmen arise
Track Name: THE GREATEST DECEPTION
The Greatest Deception

Torn to pieces, the end draws near
Sorrow not! Wipe your tears
They await with open arms
"Come!" they call, "Come to us!"

What you have lost, we will give you twice
What you fear, will vanish from your life
What makes you insecure, will become your strong side
What you always desired, you will now receive

But if your eyes still see, we will make them blind
Greater satisfaction you can never find
Than to kneel down and to praise our god
To your newfound religion you will be confined

Forget all your hardships and overflow with joy
Leave behind your misery and rejoice in the "Lord"
Ignorance is happiness, etch that in your memory
Do not ask, do not urge, walk your given road

It is the greatest gift, you only have to accept
It is the one thing, that you've been always looking for
The one thing, which you have missed within your soul
To be ruled, to be led, to be part of something more

Keep in mind, that this is what you chose
With your free will, to regain what you've lost
Purpose of life, direction of your steps
Just listen and comply with the edicts you will get

But if your eyes still see, we will make them blind
Greater satisfaction you can never find
Than to kneel down and to praise our god
To your newfound religion you will be confined

You should listen only to the wisdom of your own flesh
For god is like a physician who has the plague himself
Now too late it is to change your fate
You've accepted simple life, to obey and serve
Track Name: ENFORCED DISCIPLINE
Enforced Discipline

One ordinance wasn't enough for them and their rotten faith
To create a greater dependency, they came with more and more commands

Under the disguise of redeeming your spirits

As weeds and vermin grow in untilled ground which now spreads all around
Sin and vices grow in idle and untilled heart
It must be sowed with discipline and restrictions of any kind
Since only then you can reap a harvest of glory for your god

But their intentions
Were completely different
From what their baldly proclaimed

They didn't care to help
They didn't care to preach
They didn't care to enlighten

They only wanted you
To restrain and deny
Your very own personality

Join your new family of brothers and sisters
Forget what you've learned, begin the life of penance
Through hard labor and poverty you shall
Abandon your attachments to your ego and wealth

One ordinance wasn't enough for them and their rotten faith
To create a greater dependency, they came with more and more commands

Under the disguise of redeeming your spirits

Now it is time, for you to swear an oath
Of discipline and obedience, of stability and silence

Pray and work, converse your manners
Purity of soul will be your divine reward

Obliterate your memories, your aims and your thoughts
Purge your old self and be reborn
Track Name: DIE FOR YOUR GOD
Die For Your God

Die for your god!

Obsessed and absorbed by fabricated laws

Die! Die for your god! Die for your god! Enter the void and turn into dust
No heaven awaits for there is none, you will be left to rot

You cannot ever find what you have sought

Die! Die for your god! Die for your god! Enter the void and turn into dust
No heaven awaits for there is none, you will be left to rot

Die! Die for your god!

Into a web of lies you have been caught

Die! Die for your god! Die for your god! Enter the void and turn into dust
No heaven awaits for there is none, you will be left to rot

As a disgusting worm in the mud you crawl before their authority

Die! Die for your god!

Overwhelmed by all the glory and fake vows
You forgot who you are
Transformed into slave who cannot see, hear or think
As if you'd be drowning in tar

Dazed by flimsy glitter that never shines
But casts dark, foul shadows
Oblivious to reason, freed from sanity
You turn your thoughts into prayers

Die! Die for your god!

Die! Die for your god! Die for your god! Enter the void and turn into dust
No heaven awaits for there is none, you will be left to rot

Shivering with fear as a reed you tremble before their sovereignty

Die! Die for your god!

Weak as decaying vine your mind twists around their ideology

Die! Die for your god! Die for your god! Enter the void and turn into dust
No heaven awaits for there is none, you will be left to rot
Track Name: FANATICAL WORSHIP
Fanatical Worship

Searing fire and countless numbers of sparks
Burned them in their eyes, as they stood and watched the blaze
Anguished voices, echoed to vast distance
So holy were their intents, yet so ruthless were their tasks

Fat of their vile bodies shall melt in fire
There is no peace for the wicked until they are purged

Alongside busy paths corpses were found nailed to the trees
Lifeless limbs hanging down, incinerated, moving in the breeze

Cruel deeds committed by
Self-appointed inquisitors who are entirely consumed by zeal

Ye poor sinners, behold your doom
Your weak hearts, that's where the Devil dwells
You embraced the Evil, now embrace the flames
Your confessions are written, no matter if they're true

Ye poor sinners, behold your doom
Your weak hearts, that's where the Devil dwells
You embraced the Evil, now embrace the flames
Your confessions are written, no matter if they're true

Bonfires, hundreds of stakes rise like a forest before every city
Convicts in lines await their deaths

Without any restraints they execute the ones
Who didn't convert, to earn a place in paradise
Track Name: THE DOCTRINE FALLS
The Doctrine Falls

They thought they have won, that their rule is strong
That no one could oppose their true religion
But with a great pride comes a great fall
Nothing can be forever controlled

The thick fog of deceit began to fade
Zeal disappeared but their victims remained dead
With horror they started to realize
That what they did cannot be undone

Some of the believers started to doubt
If what they did, if it was just

Devout followers of their god
Began to see, they were no longer blind
They gathered and rushed to their shrine
In a desperate attempt they started to chant

"Hear us lord, give us a sign
Set us on the right path"

No answer came, barren were the skies
Gone were their priests, they were nowhere to be found
There is no divine power, redemption is a lie
They were led astray by their lust for god

The thick fog of deceit faded away
Zeal disappeared but their victims remained dead
With horror in their eyes they realized
That their doctrine was nothing but false

Followers became apostates
Trying to forget who they were
Haunted with nightmares for the rest of their lives
Torment and sorrow was their reward
Track Name: DEATH IS THE LAW
Death Is The Law

Shrines, temples and churches
Are no more the places of reverence
Nothing but gaping emptiness
Is left from their former radiance

Vanished has their erstwhile glory for good
Crumbling are their solid immense walls
Sacrosanct symbols in all their sainthood
Warp and decay in hollow ruined halls

Howling beasts now roam around
The places that swarmed with worshippers
They wait for the few that remained devout
To satiate their bloodthirst

There is only one real law, that applies to all living things of the Earth
What grows will wither and what lives will die, to the soil from which they're made they will return

Faith will not grant you eternal life in heavens, that is just fiction and falsity
You cannot achieve what doesn't exist, neither with purity nor austerity

Death is no gateway, there's just oblivion, the blackest void is the afterlife
There's no spirit, it's just flesh and bones, your whole body will putrefy

Earthquakes and lightning, floods and storms
Hurricanes, fires and frost
Forces of nature rule the world
It's chaos in its pure form

The frail shall perish, the strong shall prevail
There is no place for weakness in life
Conquer your pain, leave regrets behind
And take control of who you are
