The Telesterion ("Initiation Hall" from Gr. τελείω, "to complete, to fulfill, to consecrate, to initiate") was a great hall and sanctuary in Eleusis, one of the primary centers of the Eleusinian Mysteries. Devoted to Demeter and Persephone, these initiation ceremonies were the most sacred and ancient of all the religious rites celebrated in Greece.

 Story Overview Edit

Enyo resolves to purge the religious superstition of old Earth and the flawed nature of man from this new society. Her augmentation has taught her to hate humanity, and she will take the Titans by force if she has too. She believes that war is inevitable for humanity, and if Acheron doesn't kneel and submit before the new ways of Empyrean, then she will kill anyone who disobeys.

 Lyrics Edit

All beauty and grace will be erased
The power to silence
Beneath this horizon will give rise to wasteful life
The old world
Burned and defaced
Their gods and their fables
Their demons, their angels
Shall be laid to rest

Reborn from dreams of peace
A tranquil world of lush green
Where love and honor reside
The terrors of night are confined

Bring their thawing flesh and force them to stand
Upon the holy machine
They will soon command

These dreams rewired her mind
They taught her to hate her own kind
A human shell, redesigned
A god queen, redefined

Still bound by machines
She lashes and screams
"By the sword or by will. Bring the Titans to me."

So hopeful and soft
Watch how they fall
The power of silence will spread like a virus
They must all obey
Forever remember these words
In peace, you'll be misled
Then driven to bloodshed
Embrace the endless cycle

Reborn from dreams of war
A nightmare colored by cascading gore
Through apathy
We tolerate a dying society

Decimation
No, just kneel
You belong to the home world
The holy land I command

With each step down
Her eyes scan the ground
Those that still live
They shall submit
A human shell, redesigned
A god queen, redefined

Still bound by machines
She lashes and screams
"By the sword or by will. Bring the Titans to me."

So hopeful and soft
Watch how they fall
The power of silence will spread like a virus
They must all obey
Forever remember these words
In peace, you'll be misled
Then driven to bloodshed
Embrace the endless cycle
