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

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

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

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

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
7.
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
8.
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

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!
