Nile - Cast Down The Heretic Lyrics

Blasphemer, Heretic, Defiler of the Sacred Ones.
Thou art Deprived of Your Limbs.
Thy Nose Shall be Split.
Thou art Cast Down and Overthrown.
Ra-Harmakhis Destroyeth Thee.
He Damneth Thee and Driveth Hooks into Thy Body.
Isis Sayeth in Mighty Voice,
"The Number of Thy Days are Cut Short.
Thy Bones are Broken to Splinters Thy Vertebrae are Severed."
Horus Hammereth Thy Head.
The Sons of Heru Smash You with Their Blows.

Thou Art Decimated by Their Violence.
Thou Fallest Backwards as Thou Retreateth Like unto Apep.
The Great Company of Gods Gather in Retribution.
They Hath Passed Judgment upon Thee.
They Cast Down Your Heresy.
They Spit Upon Thee and Thy Rebellion And Turn Their Back upon Thee.
Horus Repulseth Thy Crocodile.
Sut Defileth Thy Tomb.
Nephthys Hacketh Thee in Pieces.
The Sons of Horus Speareth Thee.
The Gods Repulse Thee.
The Flame of Their Fire is Against Thee.
Cursed Art Thou, Impaled Thou Art, Flayed Art Thou.
Heretic Thou Art Cast Down.

Blows are Rained upon Thee.
Dismemberment and Slaughter are on Thee.
Thy Crocodile is Trampled under Foot.
Thy Soul is Wrenched from its Shade.
Thy Name is Erased.
Thy Spells are Impotent.
Nevermore Shalt Thou Emerge from Thy Den.
Thy City Armana Lays in Ruin.
Damned Art Thy Accursed Soul and Shadow.
Die O One, which Art Consumed.
Thy Name is Buried in Oblivion.
Silence Covereth Thee and Thy False One.
Down upon Thy Belly.
Be Drowned, Be Drowned, Be Vomited Upon.

The Gods have Pronounced Thy Doom.
They Scorn Thee and Thy False Aten.
The Ancient Ones Turn Their Backs upon Thee.
Thou Art Cast Down, Overthrown.
Thy Reign of Heresy is Ended.
Those Thou Hast Driven Out Have Risen Against Thee.

Cast down the Heretic.
Cast down the Heretic.
Cast down the Heretic.

Khnemu Draggeth Thy Spawn to the Block of Slaughter.
Sick Shalt Thou be at the Mention of Thine Own Name.
Sekhmet Teareth Out Thy Bowels and Casteth Them into Flames.
She Filleth Thine Orifices with Fire.
Uadjit Shutteth Thee in the Pits of Burning.
Nevermore Shall You Breathe or Procreate.
Neither Thy House or Tomb Exist.
Thou Shalt Drive Thy Teeth into Thine Own Body.
Heretic, Thou Art Cast Down.
Overthrown, Ended, Hacked in Pieces, Slaughtered, Butchered.
Ra Hath Made Thoth to Slay Thee Utterly.
Thou Art Cast Down.

  56. Nick Kapp

    Play the song at 1.25 speed until you get to 4:32 when the slow part starts, put it back at normal, then when the main riff comes back in put it back at 1.25. So fucking brutal it's not even funny.

  57. Chris MacDowell

    My first time seeing Nile was on this tour. Total fucking mayhem. \mmmm/

  58. çelikten kılıç

    Nile is always 100% pure perfection.

    It's rare you find something like this.

  64. Jeffery Darnell

    One of the best extreme metal bands of all time

    Robert Gorczyński

    Jeffery Darnell one of the best guitar solos of all time

  65. razor5cl

    Does anyone know the story in this song? I get it's about Egyptian mythology and a heretic being punished by various different gods(Horus, Isis etc) but what's the significance of the crocodile("Horus repulseth thy crocodile")?


    razor5cl i don't know about the Crocodile, but im quite sure that the heretic was akhenaton, a king that wanted to turn the polytheist religion into a monotheist one (cult of aton - the sun). at his death, every draw, write, statue of this king was destroyed and egypt got back to the standard polytheism. akhenaton had not to be remembered (a sort of latin "damnatio memoriae"). don't take my words as true because i'm not sure about 'em

    enkisea enkidu

    razor5cl I havent read the lyrics to this one recently, but the crocodile is Set, or his spawn. Set is the brother of Horus' father, Osiris. The song 'the papyrus with the spell to protect its wielder from that which is in the water' is about the crocodile and warding against it.

  66. RiderAndKallen

    1:13 I need a physical OMG, split that particle Tom!

  67. Cheyenne Ball

    Fuck Nickleback

  68. Inner 27 of Ra

    Thank you for this.

  69. xXErr4rXx

    i really dislike death metal as a metal fan but this song is great, love the guitar

  70. Retrovirus

    Nile's solo's are very similar in style to Slayer's...

    Mostly awful.

    Martin Lindberg

    Slayer is (or at least was) a brutal Thrash Metal band, it's chaotic, it's raw, it's dirty, it's fast as fuck. Do you think a traditional heavy metal solo would fit in a classic Slayer song? The solos NEED to be chaotic, raw, dirty and fast as fuck otherwise they would be completely out of place. When you first listen to them , they may sound like they make no sense or completely random, but let me tell you they're  not, and they're hard as fuck to play correctly.

    BTW if you think Slayer solos are "bad" because of their chaotic nature, wait till you hear "Pleasure To Kill" or the first Bathory albums.

    Casey Rauch

    Suffocation does it tastefully.


    @Mr. Painless85 To be fair I was a bit harsh on Slayer, a lot of their solos are decent.

    I'm just used to Necrophagist and Obscura solos. Neo-classical masterpieces.


    Slayer's solos may not be technically good but they fit the music IMO.

    Jose Arriaga

    I like the solo on this song...

  71. aldusxenon

    Who are the "73" who dislike this? Can I punch them in the face? You don't dislike NILE!!!!!!!!!

    Fabio GTX

    haha :P maybe :P


    I disliked now, what you gonna do about it.


    slayallthedeamons You're a herb!

    DwarfSroll Freax

    Ariana grande fans discovering metal for the first time hahaha

    White Guy In Black Robes

    aldusxenon they are in de-nile !

  72. Tristan Dawe

    But that 3:30 though..... Amirite!

    Hero Fawkes

    +Tristan Dawe yeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeees mega!!!!!!!!!


    this entire song is progressively aggressive, listen closely you can hear it build


    @HEADBANGER Aggressive? What? No way Jose... I thought this was a message from my local PBS Station asking for donations to help keep young heretics off the streets of Newport News, VA. Does anyone have the correct link? Help!!


  73. Edison Quintana

    1:20 "Selfieeee"

  74. Alvaro Robles

    injeccion de death metal Uffff death metal siempre

  75. El Ojo Oscuro

    3:33 (Y)

  76. Ed Begley

    on x2 speed song turns into a solid note

  77. Tom Jones

    This solo is sick. I wish I could encase it in gold and hang on a wall in my room.

  78. Michael De Santa

    4:32 Best fucking breakdown ever BRUTAL!!!

  79. Slayer

    are you fucking kidding me? Kafir has exactly the same guitar solo ! Im so disapointed man!

  80. adjklhmntgb

    How much infant blood does one have to gargle to get their voice like this

    A B

    Gargle? CONSUME!!!!

  81. RiderAndKallen

    1:28 "Curse that cow, in her mouth, they all go!"


    Heretic!.... Thou art cast down!!!


    Down upon thy belly!!!

  82. Jari The Sauna Lover

    this song lack of guitar skills, nickelback all the way.

    Wise Ferret

    gibson362 No, Nickelback is psych trance, not dubstep. Silly goose. You have to remix the Nickelback song into Skrillex and throw in some high hats and BAM, Nile.



    Tanchok Dewan

    Keycap Happy Mofo

    +adnan rawashdeh Infant Annihilator aren't a bad band at all, Aaron is fucking talented. It's just that I like Nile more

  89. NeAZ

    Sometimes I wonder what ancient egiptians would think if they could listen to, with properly translated lyrics on a papyrus (obviously), some songs by Nile.

    Sakis Headbanger

    +NeAZ Nice question man!


    I'd like to think they would start an Ancient Mosh Pit....


    They would be lashed to the slave stick? (or was that not the Egyptians?)

    dusty trousers

    hahaha fuck yeah

  93. Varun Kuchibhotla

    I'm not a fan of blast beats. But they fit perfectly in this song along with the vocals.


    @Jamz Hatefeel​ You're everywhere dude, nice to see someone who likes all types of metal without getting stuck up on sub-genre boundaries


    @***** I edited my post to clarify.

  94. Aaron Gentry

    This song sounds mildly upset

    Steven0125 Kjl

    I agree. Only slightly, but it's there.

    Ion Flavius

    You can feel the passive aggression

  95. Riothamus Rex

    I tried to do a vocal cover of this, all my teeth shattered.

  96. Jyotis Espy Feline

    Most favorite Death Metal song and Nile song too! Awesome solos, brutal and awesome lyrics! Have to listen to it before I start work!
    Nile and a few other Death Metal bands is what I listen to when playing my Pokemon games and reading the local news.

  97. Pvmntpndr66

    I love all things Nile but, and I hate to correct you , this is their 4th album. 

  98. Joškin Kot

    no better soundtrack to study for my ancient history exam!
