InvalidDreamException This is one of the best re-recorded albums I've heard. The haunting darkness and euphoric beauty of 90s Swedish melodic death metal was revived in modern sound quality. ★★

Soul Strings Even after 20 years this album is still a great example of purely concentrated smdm awesomeness. Special thanks for that bonus track, reworked from the old "Curriculum Mortis" demo - I couldn't ask for more, this is simply amazing! Favorite track: The Plague That Haunts Me.

Dusk has come to pass The irreversible darkness surrounds us Scared away from the light No mercy will be shown Your blood will flow Weak minded, you deserve to die Filled with the purest of hate My axe rips the air Deformed beyond recognition The unpurest of all Not even worthy of the ignorance The ignorance of your slayer Kneel on command You, you couldn't believe Couldn't believe it was for real Until you realize, that it is you The selfdeciever There is nothing, all must end For the selfdeceivers Not even worthy of the ignorance The ignorance of your slayer Kneel on command You, you couldn't believe Couldn't believe it was for real Until you realize, that it is you The selfdeciever It is you who are crawling Crawling in a world of shit And still you enjoy it But even when there's nothing Left to crawl for you're still stuck In your pile of fucking shit The blade will fall To end it all

Hidden thoughts of hate Trying to manipulate the fate Unseen is the power of every man They who see they don't understand Truth they will not hear Neverending sadness Turn into pure madness A beautiful pattern of emptiness An empire of distress The ruler of darkness In an embryo of lies Unseen is the power of every man They who see they don't understand Truth they will not hear Neverending sadness Turn into pure madness A beautiful pattern of emptiness An empire of distress The ruler of darkness In an embryo of lies On memories they feed But the air is so hard to breathe Short fragments of delight To forget the icy fright Wish nothing else but to die And to stop the internal cry Waiting for the end to come Soon it will all be gone A beautiful pattern of emptiness An empire of distress The ruler of darkness In an embryo of lies

Red 04:29
Trust! The blind man leads the way A burnt out candle in the hand Chasing for eternity nevermore Pleased with being lost forever The touch on your face, it's lost Too weak, too afraid to find salvation Liquid illusions all that is seen Believe in easy dreams, you can have it all! Thoughts becomes too real, the end is here! Sun moon nothing's left to see Stars all surrounding us As we enter into endless night It burns inside, tear it apart Leave it all, face grim reality Shed a tear for the lost Weakness lies in trust And the foolish await the arrival Castle of promises imprisoned Don't believe the words Sun moon nothing's left to see Stars all surrounding us As we enter into endless night It burns inside, tear it apart Red is the colour of our dreams Our blood, our life, our night When all ends up darkened Red is the colour of our dreams Our blood, our life, our night I'm bleeding to death, Red Leave it all, face grim reality Shed a tear for the lost Weakness lies in trust And the foolish await the arrival Castle of promises imprisoned Don't believe the words Red is the colour of our dreams Our blood, our life, our night When all ends up darkened Red is the colour of our dreams Our blood, our life, our night I'm bleeding to death, Red

The Void 04:14
Horrified by the magic of night I'm enchanted under the spell In pain I scream once again The pain I thought that I would feel It came upon me early this time I try to escape into the void Into my no-man's-land How else would I survive? Trapped in the spiders web She who will eat out my heart Leaves me with laughter's of malice As many nights before I fear it's my dying breath Still I do this with pleasure Although I know it's pointless and useless I end up with the poison Running through my veins (Doomed to) eternally suffer Eternally die Eternally arise Immortal in my suffering I try to escape into the void Into my no-man's-land How else would I survive? Trapped in the spiders web She who will eat out my heart Leaves me with laughter's of malice The void

Everbleed 02:41
Born to bleed with desert dream With no illusions and no need Made of steel but not for real To feel is to sin Turn blank pages in an empty book There's nothing left to win Born to bleed in a desert world Silent agony: everbleed

No hope, no cure No destination anymore So empty yet complete I've seen it all before A gleam of light revealed But always out of reach I was never to know It wasn't part of the show You need the truth, but truth hurts What I need is not what is offered Answers I don't want to hear I'm sorry I can't help you, I suffer too No hope, no cure No destination anymore So empty yet complete I've seen it all before The truth it kills Without any blood spilled Relieved from life An urge to fulfill Life is worthless, life is pain Here I have nothing to gain My blood runs down the drain (Blood rain) In spite of my dreams, I hold back For how long will I hold back? Don't know what life is for But I don't want to see anymore No hope, no cure No destination anymore So empty yet complete I've seen it all before The truth it kills Without any blood spilled Relieved from life An urge to fulfill

Retaliation 04:22
Hate lies bleeding within me I am turned inside out Wish you felt the pain I feel A thorn tearing from inside I bleed the invisible blood, The blood of my soul, I wish I had the strength to turn my back, Turn my rage against you Make you bleed the way I do, Bury you within my darkness Stifle in my cold embrace, Until there's nothing left to hate Only the purity of a newborn life Condemned because, there is no cause Seas of sorrow drowning me, I'll live forevermore, Still nevermore, I'll become your greatest fear, Take you down to me, To perish in my heart of darkness, Until the end of time Until the end of time, In this world of pain Sorrow is all you'll gain You get what you deserve! Your daydreams end! Inside this blackhole of my life, Nothing can exist no more, Forever engulfed, forever lost, Within myself, within my time I bleed the invisible blood, The blood of my soul, I wish I had the strength to turn my back, Turn my rage against you Condemned because, there is no cause Seas of sorrow drowning me, I'll live forevermore, Still nevermore, I'll become your greatest fear, Take you down to me, To perish in my heart of darkness, until the end of time

Misty shadows grips the heart Souls reunite in order of chaos White knights guards the treasures of dreams At the centre of the storm a man is to emerge To find the pleasure beyond the lost horizon Now hidden beyond a realm of rain Entering the vein of black B lood runs red in seas of sorrow The sun burns grey in a cloudy sky Confusion! White knights guards the treasures of dreams At the centre of the storm a man is to emerge To find the pleasure beyond the lost horizon Now hidden beyond a realm of rain Many questions why? It's time to leave this earthly palace The crystal is stolen as worlds collapse In sickness, all life shall pass away Reality disappears, shaking in disgust The crystal leads astray A foul taste of truth Blood runs red in the flow of forever Springs of salt runs down the face Left alone in silent disgrace White knights guards the treasures of dreams At the centre of the storm a man is to emerge To find the pleasure beyond the lost horizon Now hidden beyond a realm of rain As the leaves slowly falls to the ground Forever captured spirits of life The path is gone without a trace Lost in a universe of deceit But somewhere in the distant (a light breathes it's last sigh)

The storm is closing in A shadow of a man drifting by His life is all forgotten He doesn't know the purpose of his dreams Relieve this world from sorrow and pain A struggle in misery it shall be In his search for the lost horizon Pain and suffering is his lost friend As he opens his eyes and looks at the Rainfilled skies, grey as forever Lightning strikes as he finds that A rainbow is bringing light to his eyes Now he's the rider of the lost In search of paradise and joy But the man without a shadow stands in his path The storm is closing in, again and again! Lifting a sword in desperation Cuts through lifeless air, he is gone The tale of gods are to be told And a raging battle unfolds Leaving his world destroyed in desperation The path will be neverending As he rides through the forest of cold Ice breaks free he is on his way Lightning strikes as he finds that A rainbow is bringing light to his eyes Now he's the rider of the lost In search of paradise and joy But the man without a shadow stands in his path

Riding the winds Across the raging seas To reach the kings in the land of the lost A turbulent sea, winds of cold Reaching the harbor, they are safe Entering the gates, castle of splendor History of 3.000 years has passed Walls endless as he no longer sees the sky Mighty forces take his hand As the wolf becomes a part of his destiny Join us in our search for the land of the lost Once again crossing the raging seas To enter the forests of misery Trees are closing in as the moonhawk Cross the skies The trail is filled with withering bones Since battles of old As they are to spill the blood of the poor No longer unknown, followed by darkness henchmen Once again crossing the raging seas To enter the forests of misery Endless speech, time is running out of hand Dark forces stand in their way Trying to bring disorder to his thoughts Swords of lightning end their will Once again victory has been won The meeting is done Mother earth breaks evil bonds As his mind is freed When he leaves the elders With their support

Death, deceit, dismay The horrors of life unveiled It is all a lie life is hell The paleness of it all so real A grey image of what used to be If this world could just vanish Inject the fluid, inject disease Erase the plague that haunts me Destroy my human appetites Let my weakness, be(come) my guide I scream, I destroy, I want to kill Kill what's left to be killed Everyone should be silenced Who's my god to be? The one who can erase my memories Inject the fluid, inject disease Erase the plague that haunts me Destroy my human appetites Let my weakness, be(come) my guide The divine images, they enchant me I can no longer resist, I fall prey to my urges I´ll pay with my complacency And so should you my dear. Inject the fluid, inject disease Erase the plague that haunts me Destroy my human appetites Let my weakness, be(come) my guide

about

This year “The only pure hate” has it´s 20th birthday. Due to the quite poor sound quality, the band decided to enter the studio and re-record the album giving the album a new chance with great sound quality, as well as a way better performance.

Band statement:
This year the album “The only pure hate” has it´s 20th birthday. For this celebration the album has been re-recorded. But not only due to the anniversary, but also because of the poor sound quality on the original recording. For that reason we think that the songs deserves a new chance. The release will include a previously unreleased track called “The plague that haunts me” which was meant to include on the original record but was dropped at that time.
