Testament - Dog Faced Gods Lyrics

Of dog faced gods
Through the Nile sands whisper
Of ancient times, mayfly names
Flickered and gone
The blood and honey
Dripping from their jaws
Through the Nile sands whisper
Ancient times, fade into the dawn

Of dog faced gods
Manifest in the night
The sacred rights
Handed down through times of old
Dark words of power
Blood upon their tombs
Through incantations
Locusts fly, signaling doom

Confirm who I am
Contort all I can
Conceive sorcery
Corrodes disbelief

Of dog faced gods
Dead civilization
Through priests of power
Invoking life of the ancient one

The blood and honey
Dripping from their jaws
Through the Nile sands whisper
Travel through time to the land unknown

Confirm who I am
Contort all I can
Conceive sorcery
Corrodes disbelief

Testament Dog Faced Gods Comments
  1. Frossen Vintersjel

    Eric Peterson's band "Dragonlord" fucking crushes!!! Anyone who hasn't heard them yet really should check it out. He's on vocals with that group.

  2. wira triputra julianto

    This album mix between Thrash and Death Metal after Alex and Loui gone from TESTAMENT after Ritual Album. Great fuckin album than Saint Anger By Metallica.


    I remember when they played this song last year, it caught me off guard! So glad they played it, I always thought this in particular was such an underrated song!

  4. Christian Caracciolo

    aaaaaaaaaahhhhhhh revientooooo

  5. Charles Greenwood

    James Murphy really added a dynamic to this band during that era!

  6. Matthijs Jansen

    This is so 1994.yet so badass .

  7. goatbut29

    Tempesta with the fucking best beats for this monster!!

  8. King Diamond

    But only some songs Chuck's growls are greats, like Low song but dog faced gods is almost full death metal voice, so i mostly skip this song. Testament isn't death metal band, it's thrash metal.

  9. King Diamond

    But i don't like this death metal voice so much, only some bad in this.

  10. Thrash Machine

    I’m 14 and hate what people my age are listening to. This is real music 🤘🏻

    I met Eric Peterson in LA in Jan.
    Told him Testament was my fave band..

    He Asked what song?..I said Dog Faced Gods
    His exact words were" I love playin that song its so Ferocious! !

  45. brutaldmcccp

    Fuck, this is agression !!!! |m|

  46. Brian Reddish

    Yeah and,among other things,he also played brilliantly on Obituary's finest album,"Cause of Death".Everything he's played on is a classic.

  47. gReGsKi GmAiL

    interesting lyrical melodies, a bit outside the safe zone

  48. Tyler

    This was one of James Murphy's best projects. He was also awesome in the 'Spiritual Healing' album when he jammed with Chuck Schuldiner's band Death.

  49. Mao Templar Campofranco

    The fabolous "James Murphy's influence"


    Nope. It is all Eric Peterson. Murphy just filled in for the brief solo part.


    2:25 .. i came

  51. John Akyuz

    Cats are the Guardians of the Under World

  52. Mike Mohn

    They just thought Testament referred to a bible lesson.

  75. Diego Jimenez

    i think testament is good...but honestly some of there stuff bores me....they need to have more songs like that first riff...that one kicks ass

  76. Garen King

    I can honestly say that I don't like this... I'm more about their Thrasher years, this sounds like Death Metal to me.


    Practice and souls suck from their thrash years

  77. Peter Amaral

    I remember around 1997, after the Demonic album, Testament was having a contract dispute with their record company, they were considering changing their name to "Dog Faced Gods"

    @thsterrain Gotcha! Thanx.

  94. thsterrain

    @king666nothing "Dog Faced Gods" refers to the gods of ancient Egypt, depicted as human bodies with the heads/faces of jackyls.

  95. Christkiller Chris

    Dog faced Gods...DEAD CIVILIZATIONS through priests of POWER invoking life of the ANCIENT ONE!!!

  96. Eugene Bakman

    I never understood - is this song about gods who have dog faces? Or is it about one time when some dog met gods? ))) So weird.
    But balls-out amazing song nonetheless.

  97. Ben S

    Testament should be considered in the top four.
