*Gasping for Breath*
I don’t think I can go much further, this… this is a death trap! (Oh my god, why did I let him talk me into this) ….just try to stay calm, *forced gulp*
Just. Try. To. Stay. Ca..
*TO BECOMING THE GREAT BEAST!!!*
WHAT WAS THAT? WHERE DID THAT COME FROM? *Pulls out blade* I won’t be intimidated YOU HEAR ME?! Try your best! I didn’t come here to FUCKING DIE!! So go ahead do your worst!
Please. I know it was my idea to bring you along with me but you must understand the severity of the situation we are in, that sound, those.. those words! They can only mean one thing..
The legendary creature born of Metal. Not just any ordinary metal but BLACK METAL!
What do you mean ‘Black Metal’?
*Worried look forming* Tell me, what does Black Metal mean?
It means, *Tears starts rolling down*
JUST TELL ME! WHAT DOES BLACK METAL MEAN!
It means, death.
*SUN OF HATE*
*Blasting Metal sounds flying through the air*
WE HAVE TO GO NOW! They are on to us!
They? Eternity is a they?
NO FUCKING TIME... RUN!!!
*Both running as fast as they can*
Those thrashing guitars, that malicious pattern of rhythm and technic! THIS ISN’T WHAT I SIGNED UP FOR! You said ‘The Metal’ would be a tamed beast! Ready for the Kill. WELL WHAT THE FUCK IS THIS????
*BRINGER OF THE FALL*
*Sonic guitar waves slices the air*
Holy shit, Holy shit, Holy shit.
*Both hide behind a tree temporarily*
Look, *Wipes tears from his eyes* we have no choice, we HAVE to stand AND FIGHT THE METAL!
ARE.YOU.INSANE!! Fight Eternity? Fight The Metal?! Are you out of your FUCKING MIND! It was a scary thought even if it was just a ‘tamed’ Metal! But a BLACK METAL that fights back? No, no way in HELL ARE WE FIGHTING THAT THING! IT’S TOO POWERFUL!
*TE NOSTRO DEUM SATHANAS*
They’ve spotted us! It’s no use hiding anymore. I can feel their demonic glare piercing through my soul, as I’m sure you do as well.
*Heavy breathing partially controlled*
The way things are going now, we will just waste our energy running. I’m not saying I’m not scared out of my brains but we have no other choice then to stand and fight!!
*Frozen in disbelief*
SNAP OUT OF IT, I SAID THEY KNOW WHERE WE ARE NOW SO GET YOUR HEAD OUT OF YOUR ASS AND LET’S MAKE A PLAN!
*If Ever I Lived*
WATCH OUT! SPIKES! FROM THE AIR!
*Grabs the friend and dives to the left*
*Slaps friend in the face*
DIDN’T YOU JUST SAY YOU DIDN’T WANT TO DIE?
*Slowly regains confidence*
Yeah…yeah okay fine let’s go...
I’m telling you, if we just stick to the core plan to defeat the Metal we will do what we set out to do! I promise you WE WON’T DI...
*Friends body splits into two*
YOU! FUCKING! COWARDS!! HE WAS DEFENCELESS AND SCARED! AND YOU BUTCHERED HIM LIKE A PIG! HOW?! HOW COULD YOU!!!
*Picks up blade of his friend*
;I Don’t give a fuck if you’re the strongest Metal on earth, or how brutal your instruments of torture are, one way or another I.WILL.KILL.YOU
*In Subspecies Aeterna*
HAHAHAHAHAHA IS THAT ALL YOU GOT? LOUD THUNDERSTORMS AND SCARY NOISES?
*Quick stepping back and fourth/Left to right*
Oh your all mighty Metal one, you’re going to have to do better than that to get me!
(Okay, these thunderstorms are actually quite a pain to get rid of, I have to stay focused and stay quick above all else or risk getting killed just like... NO TIME FOR THAT NOW)
*TO BECOME THE GREAT BEAST*
YES, I SEE YOU! JUST A FEW METERS AWAY BEFORE I RETURN THE FAVOUR AND GUT YOU LIKE A PIG YOU ANIMAL!
*Running closer and closer*
...Arghh, Arghh, *Body frozen in fear*
(… What.. What are these creatures? This can’t be real, no this ISN’T REAL! NOTHING can be this demonic... I’m scared, so..so scared. Someone help me please)
*Tears flow once more but words can’t be uttered*
(I need someone to help me. Is there anyone there to help me? PLEASE SOMEONE FUCKING HELP ME!.. I’m so scared..)
Guttered like a Pig? We did that peasant a service by ending his pathetic life so quickly as we intend to do yours. You just don’t get it do you? We are THE METAL! We are Eternity and we are THE DARKNESS
*Eternity cuts him in half*
Those who defy us, defy the metal. Those who defy the metal. Die.
*Nine Magic Songs*
For all whom dare read of this event and aspire to mock us and our sacred metal, a tale of caution. We have been crafting our art for generations. Our life and soul is bound to the Dark Arts Of Black Metal, it is the devil’s will incarnate and we are the vessel.
/I challenge any ‘mortal’ to listen to our epilogue of chaos and not grovel to your knees in humility over the masterpiece that we have created, the most pure, brutal and sinister Metal design ever created to be heard.
/For those who understand the importance of the Metal, you will not have to worry about any Ill Will shared on your behalf.
But for those who dare defy the Metal. You have chosen Death.
