about

SAQAR's first EP "The Reckoning" is both an epic and a universal symbolism of eternal fight between the good and evil within every person and how it started with the first disobedience. The album art depicts a hellish version of the garden of Eden with Satan and the Serpent hiding and laughing within the trees, while a female figure, holding a red apple and flames in her hands.

Track Name: Deed Of The Serpent
I stood there and beheld how it erupted,
As the fire refused bowing to the mud,
The command was clear and I had prostrated,
As I looked up, I found him defying to sway,

I shall not bow to one created from clay,
This creation is stillborn,
I shall not bow to the vermin,

Is this the one whom thou honored above me?
If thou but respite me to the day of eternity,
I shall bring him under my sway,
I shall lead him to the point of dismay,
And all his descendants shall go astray,

I shall not bow to one created from clay,
This creation is stillborn,

Go thy way if any of them followeth thee,
Verily hell shall be recompensed for him and thee,

Go thy way if any of them followeth thee,
Verily hell shall be recompensed for him and thee,
I had no power over thee,
But to call you and yet you listened to me,
So reproach me not, for I am a servant of thee,
I shall not listen to thy cries,
Nor shall thou listen to mine,
So suffer and scream for the rest of eternity,
Track Name: Fear No Evil
I see the dark inside the light,
A taste of purity within the blight
This is the soothing figure of fright,
It’s obscure and blindingly bright
A stream of visions penetrates my mind
Fear no evil whispered the shadow
The message is clear, time is here, I have been told
Read the word, a reader I'm not,
Read the word and you shall behold
The word smiting the wicked
With the wand of the old

Thou art the light within the night,
The divine incarnation of right
Thou seeth all clearly from that height
Tell thy word through my heart
And by thy word all shall abide
Art thou, I, and the universe sole
And if so why am I to grow old
And of the future am I untold
Thou art the martyr the killer and the sword so forgive us for we are strayed
As above and so below thy will is all that we shall uphold

A maelstrom of confused souls screaming for salvation
Floating towards the light of God, hungering for redemption

Thou art the light within the night,
The divine incarnation of right
This is the soothing figure of fright,
It’s obscure and blindingly bright
Tell thy word through my heart
And by thy word all shall abide
Read the word and you shall behold
And if so why am I to grow old?
Thou art the martyr, the killer and the sword so forgive us for we are strayed
As above and so below thy will is all that we shall uphold

A maelstrom of confused souls screaming for salvation
Floating towards the light of God, hungering for redemption
Track Name: Babel
Feast on your own flesh
Burn yet never die
This is the end for you
Eternally scream and weep

Death was only the doorway
Now gulp your puts for the sins you did
Your life was a test you failed
The 19 shall keep you here; you fiend

Why should we be doomed to hell?
This shall not be
We shall rise up
And claim our right to heaven.
Let us build our path
And take what’s rightfully ours.

Rise
To heaven
We rise
Rise

With blood and stone we build
the path to the eternal realm
our arms will reach the sky
Man shall prevail
Alive, we choose our fate
Raise your hammers and sickles
None will be damned
God awaits at hand

the more we fail the more we try death is haunting every corner
years pass by many die there's no room for rest or peace
the more we try the more we fail a curse is carved in every stone
years pass by many die here's no room for rest or peace

Feast on your own flesh
Burn yet never die
This is the end for you
Eternally scream and weep

Death was only the doorway
Now gulp your puts for the sins you did
Your life was a test you failed
The 19 shall keep you here; you fiend
Track Name: Oblivion
My lips to the trumpet are sealed
As the first tune I sing
Prevails for all to hear
Awakening the first king

Below the heavens they scatter
In pain beholding, screaming, howling
The one eyed savior descends
The grand deceit begins

Seven leans enslaved under the reign of the one eyed savior
Seven leans herding Man
Slaughtering those who oppose the deformed for
Seven years man shall stray

All hope is lost, doom and pain
Are all they see, the torment shall last
Eternally, suffocating upon the imposter’s
Bidding to the day they die

I watch them hopelessly seek
Evidently unreachable closure or death
More the blood is spilt
More his power compels
Compels rain to descend
Invincible, he awakes the dead

The light is here, conquering fear, they’re no more in solitude
The word descends to smite the wicked, now is time for fortitude
Time to revolt and strike him down, they shall feast on his burning flesh

Marching towards oblivion (x3)
Longing for oblivion


Giants arise from beneath the earth
Man shall stand
Under the banner of the iron rod
They must fight
Do not be intimidated,
Raise your sword
Facing death, you must stand tall
Gather your wits, you rise or fall

Marching, towards oblivion (x3)
Longing, for oblivion

Marching towards oblivion (x3)
Vanishing into oblivion

The light is here, conquering fear, they’re no more in solitude
The word descends to smite the wicked, now is time for fortitude
Time to revolt and strike him down, they shall feast on his burning flesh
Track Name: Abyss
Why have you forsaken me?
Enlight the bleak uncertainty
Into the abyss you’ve sent me away from thee
By thy word shall thy eternal providence be

The disobedient serpent
Believed he was equal
The fallen waged against his will

Banished from heaven was he
Once close to the almighty
In the darkest pit of fire he dwells

Black flames burning in the heart of the great furnace
Sights of woe
Endless torture awaits the defier of the master
Righteous pain
There roams the dweller, restrained and yet immortal
Feeble, he cries
In this infinite silence, he staggers in dismay
A word then breaks the cycle
His brother in arms

Why have you forsaken me?
Enlight the bleak uncertainty
Into the abyss you’ve sent me away from thee
By thy word shall thy eternal providence be

O brother, we’re now shackled
Instead of drowning in grace
We’re doomed to the end of time

Don’t succumb to the bleak, comrade
We’ve not given up our hatred
We shall never yield

Thy deception and mine courage
Shall spark the ultimate war
None shall stand in our way

Don’t succumb to the bleak, comrade
We’ve not given up our hatred
We are not to be overcome

We proclaim apostasy
Unconquerable will, immortal hate

We proclaim apostasy
Thou shalt not extort that glory from me

Why have you forsaken me?
I shall unleash my rage on thee
Into the abyss you’ve sent me away from thee
Repentance for the weak, I am not he
