Nile - Chapter Of Obeisance Before Giving Breath To The Inert One In The Presence Of The Cresent Shaped Horns Lyrics




Khensu Neter Hetef.
Who Possesseth Absolute Dominion over the Evil Spirits that Infest the Earth and Sky.
He of the Silence of the Moon.
Giver of Oracles.
He that Must Forever Wax and Wane.
Thou Art in Union with Thoth.
The Excellent Tehuti of Truth and Time.
Keeper of the Lunar Cycle.
Whose Hands are Able.
Whose Tongue is Mighty in Speech.
Author of the Works of Knowledge.
Writer of the Ancient Wisdom.
Master of the Words of Power.

Obeisance before giving breath to the Inert One
In the presence of the Crescent-Shaped Horns.

Lord of the Two Horns.
God of the Full Moon.
Aah Tehuti.

As it Was for Thoth So Shall it Be for Me.
As it Was for Thoth So Shall it Be for Me.

As it Was for Thoth So Shall it Be for Me.
As it Was for Thoth So Shall it Be for Me.

I am He Who Sendeth Forth Terror into the Domain of Rain and Thunder.
I have Made My Knife to Flourish along with the Knife Which is in the Hand of Thoth.

Lord of the Two Horns,
God of the Full Moon.

I am He Who Calleth Down Curses and Commandeth the Elements unto Darkness.
I Hath Uttered the Hidden Words.
Even unto the Divine Words which Art Written in the Book of Thoth.

Written in the Book of Thoth.
[Repeat and fade]

    The riff at :48 is one of my favorite Nile riffs ever and it’s only like 7 seconds...

  14. alk420id

    Am I the only one who fell in love with this band the first time I heard them? Ever since I first heard Sacrifice unto Sebek, I instantly knew they were on another level.

  15. Abla Kadabla

    Title in Swedish - Vördnadskapitel innan Andeskänkning till Den Långsamme i närvaron av De Halvmåneformade Hornen

  16. AgelessNomad

    Excellent song.
    Nile and their epic song titles!
    Bonus track: Polluting the vegan salad with the eternal curse of meat in the presence of he who eats grass.

  20. dylanlawless1

    1:35 the riff behind the solo is so goddamn awesome.
    Da na na na naaaa, du do doo, do duu du du na naaaa.
    That's some catchy tech dm if I ever heard it.

    Denn Hoff

    "Da na na na naaaa, du do doo, do duu du du na naaaa." made my day. xD

    Peppe Frasca

    Top tier tab interpretation.

  21. EuphorbianDM77

    Lashed to the slave stick is a very catchy song though :p
    After seeing Nile live, I kept randomly saying "Lashed to the slave stick!!!" en then humming the tunes for several days

  22. Elmer Alvarez

    @Ulrikth I'm testing it right now...
    yep, it's longer. Chapter of Obeisance Before Giving breath to the Inert One in The Presence of the Crescent Shaped Horns has 21 syllables. Papyrus Containing the Spell to Preserve its Possessor Against Attacks from He who is in the Water has 22 syllables.

  23. David Kilgore

    The lyrics are in the title.

  24. Ulrikth

    @Zomgbeep Technically Papyrus Containing the Spell to Preserve Its Possessor Against Attacks From He Who Is In the Water is longer. :P

  25. Fabio1349

    @runingwolflexan Toth is ;)

  26. Fabio1349

    @Haddockxyz300 ahahahahahah I suppose you'd just have to ask CHAPTER OF OBEISANCE.

  27. Thomas Rönnberg

    Chapter of Obesity. Gotta love it!

  28. Vincent Brien

    Awesome, but how to hell am i supposed to request this song at a concert??????????????

  29. Lexan

  30. Martin de la Torre

    Most ridiculous song name in the history of everything

  31. Nefaste

    @swaapo wtf doesn't really sound like gorguts to my ears lol

  32. Karel Marx

    @XxREDFIRE06xX i think George Kollias but Inferno is amazing too

  33. TakkiFucki

    @XxREDFIRE06xX my favorite is George Kollias!

  34. TakkiFucki

    If music, than nile!

  35. The Mighty Ravendark

    whos better? george kolias or inferno from behemoth?

  36. Dadutta

    I love the sick outro - WRITTAN IN THE BUUUK AV THOOOWT

  37. Jens M. Christensen

    @mrKotBerg
    yeah, I have also always loved that bit, especially when it turns into that lightning fast riff.

  38. Jens M. Christensen

    @Giganotabehemoth87
    Exactly my thought.,aswell. Even though I had been listening to death metal for quite a while at that time, Nile was really one hard motherfucker to get into. It seemed pretty unapproachable like facing a giant wall of brutality, when overcomed, this turns out to be a extremely rewarding album, at times actually beautiful and really melodic! Every time I hear it new details are found, and this is the matter of which only the truely best music is made from

  39. signofsatan

    @Giganotabehemoth87 dude. i admit, i did find Nile a bit sloppy at first. now im 40 yrs old and have been a metal head since i was 12. we are talking old school. i love all kinds from SFU to Gorgoroth. I decided one day to give them another chance. so i listened and read and absorbed. now i get it. Hail Nile.

  40. Abraham

    @Giganotabehemoth87 Exactly what I was thinking :-? Dude, do you want to be my brother ? :))

  41. Strelok

    @Zomgbeep Not really. Aggaloch has a song with the longest title I've ever seen. 33 words I think.

  42. blacklegionairsoft1

    @MajkeTiTvoje

    LMFAO!!!

  43. blacklegionairsoft1

    @MajkeTiTvoje

    lol. YOUSUFFERBUTWHY?!!!!!!

  44. blacklegionairsoft1

    What if this song was like 3 seconds long?
    "CHAOBESBEFGIBRETHEINEONIPRESCRESENTSHAPED!!!!!!!"

    Fuck... too long.

  45. Gavin Corvo

    I tried telling my friend about this song. Quite a mouthful of a name.

  46. Steven Drambus

    awesome awesome awefuckingsome

  47. fknturd

    This title reminds me of some of the insanely long song titles from Bal Sagoth.

    Alexandr Bátora

    Bal-Sagoth got me here... :-D

  48. Fabio1349

    @marlysama long titles actually MAKE songs cooler :D

  49. Faze390

    People say "Papyrus..." is a long song title, haha :)

  50. turtelman1234

    thats one really long song title

  51. paul minniear

    my god that is a long ass title but i guess the song deserves a long ass title for being so badass

  52. Ben Nero

    i love technical death metal, an karl is just brilliant at his guitar technique

  53. jltl44

    yea that is really true
    a lotta people say all these songs sound the same but...they sound a lot sound different to me????

  54. behemoth87

    This music inherently sounds messy to the untrained ear. Takes a while to get used to. But when you do you don't look back !. My fave off the album along with The burning pits..... .The egyption, driving power of those riffs are a wonder to behold.

  55. CicadaKillerMan

    Holy smokes! Come on with those first lyrics! Say that three times fast!

  56. Jiikky

    Badass song name!

  57. Daniel Laureano

    this one and "Papyrus Containing The Spell To Prreserve Its Possessor Against The Attacks Of He Who Is In The Water" lol

  58. VicariousReality7

    LoL the title doesn't fit the window

  59. Vincent Weckström

    he he he

  60. Vincent Weckström
