about

FETID ZOMBIE Leesburg, Virginia

FETID ZOMBIE, the blasphemous and death-obsessed, solo effort of reputable underground death metal illustrator Mark Riddick, was born in January 2007. Riddick makes no apologies or compromises for his unique vision, offering a myriad of influences from hard rock/heavy metal to technical death metal. Prepare for an unruly onslaught of anti-faith sentiment and old school death metal worship! ... more

Track Name: Entombed Existence
Now I lay down to sleep
Throes of death—my soul to reap...my soul to reap
If I die before I wake
I prey ye death—my soul to take...my soul to take

Into darkness I wander blind
Leaving life and love behind...leaving life and love behind
Endless journey into black
I walk ahead—never turning back...never turning back

Existence—a distant memory
Left to linger for eternity
Immortalized for a moment in time
Soon forgotten by all mankind

Entombed existence—at Death's door, alive no more
Entombed existence—damned to the earth, no rebirth
Entombed existence—forever gone, no beyond
Entombed existence—I descend, this is the end

The brief breath of life
Filled with joy, filled with strife...filled with strife
Now rendered meaningless
As I rot in endless bliss...as I rot

Entombed existence—at Death's door, alive no more
Entombed existence—damned to the earth, no rebirth
Entombed existence—forever gone, no beyond
Entombed existence—I descend, this is the end
Track Name: Into the Unknown
One last glance
Then all is black
Begin the journey
Into the unknown

Close your eyes
As death tightens his icy grip
Mystery awaits you the end
Follow the path
Untrotted passage to eternal darkness
Mystery awaits you at the end

Drift to sleep
Eternity awaits
Voyage with Charon
Through marshy depths
Track Name: Grotesque Creation
The womb of eternity
Opens its rotten hole
The horrendous is born
Unto this earthly wretch

Gardens of endless depravity
Tilling the grave of this grotesque creation

Force of the darkest nature
Breeds like maggots in filth
Sadism unbound forever
Chaos reigns like blood

Reaping the fields of death
Tilling the grave of this grotesque creation

Epitome of the blackest evil
Current of negativity
Consuming all that is
Bury the light in the darkness

Suffer your final breath
Tilling the grave of this grotesque creation
Track Name: Razor-Sharp Attack
Dismantle the cross
Invert it with force
Flaunt your defiance
Let rebellion take its course
Denounce the faith
With insubordination
Give in to wisdom
Give in to temptation
Razor sharp attack, razor sharp attack,
Razor sharp attack, razor sharp attack

Slayer of the faithful
Taste the blood of the hypocrites
Bow down before nothing
Refute the rule of the holy

Tear down the walls
That oppress your mind
Accept reality
Leave your beliefs behind
No more faith
No more pretend
Death to religion
This is the end

Razor sharp attack, razor sharp attack,
Razor sharp attack, razor sharp attack

Slayer of the faithful
Taste the blood of the hypocrites
Bow down before nothing
Refute the rule of the holy
Track Name: The Way of Mortality
What you are, I once was
What I am, you shall be
Brittle bones, loose flesh
Filled with worms, unholy breath

The way of mortality
Never forgiving, relentless
Only to exist
For a brief moment in time

What you are, I once was
What I am, you shall be
Dripping flesh, Oozing sores
I'm the conclusion, you can't ignore

The way of mortality
Never forgiving, relentless
Only to exist
For a brief moment in time

Brittle bones, loose flesh
Filled with worms, unholy breath
Dripping flesh, Oozing sores
Dead and gone, forevermore
Track Name: Utterance of Doom (featuring Microcosm)
Visions of death
Blackest horrors manifest
Mothers bury their young
Dwelling in eternal unrest

Suffering is everywhere
Chance spares no race
To be reaped by this life
Is a sentence we must face

Death tolls his bell
Its ring, shrieks like Hell
Signaling the end
The utterance of doom

There's no way out
The sorrow and strife is too great
At death's door
Time to accept nature's fate
Track Name: Death's Pallor
Inherit the earth
Its soil has been hollowed out
Join those before you
In the gathering of the dead
Lowered deep beneath
Ancient oak and granite slab
For eternal sleep
Beneath the feet of those who grieve

Sickly pallor, shroud in white
Eyes sunken, cold stare
Pale rider, on death's steed
Ashen bones, pestilent breath
Crying out, wretched tone
Name the dead, one-by-one
Bell chimes, hear your name
Sunken eyes, are staring down

Hades follows
Behind cloven hoof and foul stench
Spreading like plagues
Reaping all in its path
At Death's beckon call
An inferno of flesh and bone
His scythe dripping with life
At the gathering of the dead
Track Name: Morbid Premonition
Lay down, paralyzed
Lifeforce, rising to the surface
Energy, pulsating
Concentrated on my third eye

Rise up, serpent's force
Thoughts of death, absorb my mind
Tingling sensation, envelopes my corpus
Escape from life, crossing the line

In darkness, my eye opens
Hallucinate, the threshold of death
Swirling, vitality
Consuming my sense of reality

Lay down, paralyzed
Lifeforce, rising to the surface
Swirling, vitality
Consuming my sense of reality
Track Name: The Outstretched Hand of Rotten Death
The breath of night
enshrouding tombstones, where I creep
The pouring rain
dampens the soil, and what lies beneath
The glow of the moon
glistens on graves, as I pass
This labyrinth of death
welcomes me, to my fate

Death calls, death calls
Death calls, death calls

I can hear
the toll of the bell, it summons me
The outstretched hand
of rotten death, grasping tight

Death calls, death calls
Death calls, death calls

The end is here
I wake up, to the darkest black
Cold and alone,
Left to rot, in solitude

Death calls, death calls
Death calls, death calls
Calling out my name
