>DSO — Obedience to the point of death


Man that is born of a woman
hath but a short time to live,
and is full of misery.
He cometh up, and is cut down like a flow’r;
he flee’th as it were a shadow,
and ne’er continueth in one stay.

In the midst of life we are in death:
of whom may we seek for succour,
but of thee, O Lord,
who for our sins art justly displeased?
Yet, O Lord God most holy,
O Lord most mighty,
O holy and most merciful Saviour,
deliver us not into the bitter pains of eternal death.

Thou knowest, Lord,
the secrets of our hearts;
shut not thy merciful ears to our prayer;
but spare us,
Lord most holy,
O God most mighty,
O holy and merciful Saviour,
thou most worthy judge eternal,
suffer us not, at our last hour,
for any pains of death,
to fall from thee.

Who shall change our vile body,
that it may be fashioned like to his glorious body,
according to the working
whereby he is able even to subdue all things to himself.

I heard a voice from heaven
saying unto me, write,
from henceforth
blessed are the dead,
which die in the Lord,
ev’n so said the Spirit,
for they rest,
from their labours.

Lord have mercy upon us.
Christ have mercy upon us.
Lord have mercy upon us.

Our Father
which art in Heaven
hallowed be thy name
Thy kingdom come
Thy will be done
on Earth as it is in Heaven
Give us this day
our daily bread
and forgive us our trespasses
as we forgive those
that trespass against us
And lead us not into temptation
but deliver us from evil

Religion, as fascinating and beautiful as it is disgusting and ugly. The hand that strangles and the hand that heals is the same… This is shown with true perfection by Deathspell Omega, especially on the Kénôse EP. They bring forth the ultimate combination of music and ideology, philosophy and theology, life and death.
Here below are the sounds of the first song on this amazing album.
