steven miller ‘Ritual/Rehearsal MMXI’ is a killer demo that incorporates the best elements of traditional doom—ominous riffs, expressive vocals, and an unwavering devotion to creating a heavy and foreboding atmosphere through their compositions alone. Favorite track: Ah Satan... (Do You Know Him).

Track Name: Ah Satan... (Do You Know Him)
I was visited in old age
At the turning of my mortal page
By a demon in a shining light
His darkness swallowed the night
But I saw the light of day
So I smiled anyway
Because I knew I’d sold you all
The devil has touched my very soul

Ah Satan, do you know him?
He is warm when life is cold
Ah Satan, do you know him?
He is life when death’s foretold

Ah Satan, now I know him
Horns and hooves and wings and fangs
If you don’t you surely will
Because I’ve brought him down upon you all!
This is your last day
Try to smile as you pass away
To live on is my goal
The devil has touched my very soul

Ah Satan, do you know him?
He is warm when life is cold
Ah Satan, do you know him?
He is life when death’s foretold
Track Name: Cast The Spell
Place pen to paper
And call up forgotten words
Carve up our world
And pour its blood forth!

Invoke the spectre
In the name of truth
Toll the bell now
Oh! I hear it ring!

Cast the spell

Oh inspiration
You are the fury in all our veins
Our tongues drip magic
All our words are philosophy

Shape convictions
Of all the passive ones
Toll the bell now
Oh! I hear it ring!

Cast the spell
Track Name: Spire of War
Summoned by the princes black
A lust for power has brought it back
All the omens went ignored

Infernal beacon of metal black
Soldiers of the past are summoned back
All the omens went ignore

All the old tales speak of raising up a God
Who knows only war
'Our doom has come!'
All the elders say
And so we flee before the Spire

The Spire of War

We are all of us now enslaved
Under whips of demons until the grave
All the omens went ignored

All the old tales speak of raising up a God
Who knows only war
'Our doom has come!'
All the elders say
And so we flee before the Spire

The Spire of War
