As the plague swept across Europe in the mid-14th century, Jewish people were taken as scapegoats. Accusations started to arise that Jewish people had been deliberately poisoning wells and infecting people with this curse. In retaliation to this absurd accusation a series of massacres occurred on the mainland, 1000s of Jews were murdered, burnt alive and many communities were ransacked.


1349 forever blackened,
Immense suffering breeds,
Fear of the Black Death.

Seduced by the liars,
The Devil stokes the fire,
Mouths spread venom,
Evoking sheer terror.

Curse the Antichrists,
Who poisoned the wells,
Fear drove the town folk,
Condemned them all to Hell.

Victimised, accused and led to their slaughter,
Thousands were massacred,
In this Ungodly vilification.

Fires blazed into the night,
To purge the flesh of all sin.


from The Great Mortality, released February 19, 2016
