I left the devil’s fleet
And I sat with a flock of sheep.

‘The lord is my shepherd’ they said,
Preaching unity.
But I’d seen what their lord had done.
Under the disguise of piety.
For where else could you consume more blood and lies?
And who else had led more massacre?

I dipped my cloven feet in their water
But I did not burn.
For it was that same water
That drowned a world
Save two of every kind.

I looked up past the alter,
With my blackened eyes,
And I saw that Jesus really did weep,
But it was blood and not tears
That fell upon his marble cheeks.

I sat with the holiest of the holy;
The rapists, the murderers and the politicians,
And I felt a divine relief,
For I had truly found the highest power.

And so not one of them noticed the demon among them,
Because we’re not all that different.
In the end.

I am not ready to receive you,
But only say the word,
And I shall be healed.’


1987. I.N.R.I.

is the debut album by band Sarcófago. It was recorded and released in July.

Since their inception, Sarcófago’s aim was to make the most aggressive music ever. Early musical blueprints included extreme metal stalwarts Celtic Frost, Bathory and Slayer, along with Finnish hardcore punk bands Terveet Kädet and Rattus. The extensive use of blast beats on this album by drummer “D.D. Crazy” made him a pioneer in the metal world.  I.N.R.I.’s release has been considered a milestone in the evolution of black metal, although band bassist Geraldo “Incubus” Minelli continues to consider Sarcófago, to this date, a death metal band.

I.N.R.I. influenced black metal circles worldwide, particularly the Scandinavian portion of the so-called “second wave” of the genre.

Fenriz, drummer of Darkthrone, included a Sarcófago track (“Satanic Lust”) in his The Best of Old-School Black Metal compilation, released by Peaceville Records. Of Sarcófago’s I.N.R.I., he said it was an “album” that “you buy or die.” Euronymous, the deceased guitarist of Mayhem and erstwhile leader of the so-called “Inner Circle”, traded correspondence with Lamounier in the early days of Norway’s scene. According to the Lords of Chaos book, Euronymous was “obsessed” with Sarcófago’s early image, and wanted all black metal bands to be modelled after it.

This album is a timeless classic, and influential to many generations of black & death metal bands to come. Top notch riff writing, chaotic drumming, and shrieking black metal vocals throughout! It’s hard to go wrong with this record, especially one that ends in circus music and the sound of someone taking a gnarly dump.

Ceremonies are made use of to educate the Will by means of the Imagination.
Ceremonies which are performed without intelligence and without faith, in the absence of the higher aspirations of the soul, are but superstitious observances which tend to degrade those who take part in them.
It is an error to attribute Magical power to ceremonials, for Magical Power exists only in the trained Will of the operator. 
For this reason is the Magical Axiom true, that the Sanctum Regnum— the Divine Kingdom— is within us; I.N.R.I: ‘Intra nobis Regnum Del’…
—  Eliphas Levi, The Magical Ritual of the Sanctum Regnum; ‘The Pope, or Hierophant - Le Pape’


Las siglas I.N.R.I significan para el profano “Iesus Nazarenus Rex Iudaeorum” (Jesús de Nazaret, rey de los judíos).
En los círculos herméticos (en la Orden Rosacruz) esotéricamente significa “Ignea Natura Renovatur Integra” (La naturaleza se renueva por el fuego).

Los gnósticos consideran al espíritu santo como un fuego que es despertado por la energía sexual/creadora. Dicha energía creadora reside en el interior del ser humano, y por lo tanto el espíritu santa también.

⚬El fuego del conocimiento renueva la naturaleza pérdida del ser humano, renueva su alma y lo de puerta con su luz para que con esa linterna emprenda su camino de regreso a la morada celeste.

⚬La energía sexual renueva a la raza humano. Nuevos seres nacen y repoblan la Tierra, perpetuando el linaje humano.

⚬A través del fuego, la materia en el crisol a trabajar, de desprende de las impurezas y se convierte en la Opus Magnum Alquímica.
