I'm glad I was able contributed to its awesomeness.

^That is a good question. I personally have no preference. Any recommendations? We've had two members talk about a dirty ass Beherit sound, which I think is great. We can always expand on it if need be.
I figure we can do this: anyone upload a file of a recorded section (even if it is a cello/violin/other stringed instrument), when we have a few uploads we can collaborate on them. I for one am for a massive Death/Black/Thrash/etc whatever combo song. Fucking technical instrumentals spread randomly across tasteful breakdowns - anything is fair game as long as it sounds good (which shouldn't be hard at all).
Lyrics/vocals - I think they will at the very least have to wait until there is a structure (or at the bare minimum one measure to see what direction the sound is going to head toward).
Female vocals: I think it can be to our advantage, well placed vocal lines can make the most sloppy work sound beautiful - we can easily find a place for them, but I think we should wait on vocals till we get a few bars made.
Krig, how high can you hit a note? Mayhaps we should get some falsetto's leading the charge while some black shrieks and guttural death groans lead the the way into something most depraved.
I play guitar (D standard). I can't get a particularly wonderful sound in my current situation, but it is very easy for me to record something. I can also program drums, which I think I've gotten pretty decent at. I used to do harsh vocals for my band, but I don't have a vocal mic (just a laptop mic) and honestly I was never particularly good.

Here's my contribution, lyrics based on part 3 of Lovecraft's The Case of Charles Dexter Ward, A Search and an Evocation. I used a lot of words and phrases directly from the text.
A Cat Named Nig
In a house on Angell Street, in Providence
A cat named Nig slumbers silently
And but for Charles Ward’s decadence
The cat named Nig stirs violently
Certain tones were heard behind the door
As he bristled and arched his back
For the fright that would afflict him that night
Were from beyond the black
Chantings and repetitions
The quality in the voice that spake the
Necromancy of the twilight beyond time!
'Per Adonai Eloim, Adonai Jehova,
Adonai Sabaoth, Metraton On Agla Mathon,
verbum pythonicum, mysterium salamandrae,
conventus sylvorum, antra gnomorum,
daemonia Coeli God, Almonsin, Gibor, Jehosua,
Evam, Zariatnatmik, veni, veni, veni.'
The rising of that which should have
Long been deceased.
Out of the dark spake the eldritch voice
Haunting in its dissimilarity
The voice of centuried dirt and rot
The voice of Joseph Curwen!
And there was no mistaking that nightmare phrase:
'DIES MIES JESCHET BOENE
DOESEF DOUVEMA ENITEMAUS.'
Daylight darkened and silence thundered
As the chanting struck again:
'Yi nash Yog Sothoth he lgeb throdag'
'Yi nash Yog Sothoth he lgeb throdag'
'Yi nash Yog Sothoth he lgeb throdag' –
Muffled conversation behind the nightmare door
Of a quality disturbing to the soul
The voice whose mind is drenched in eldritch lore
Past time and fate he stole
Madness and insanity
Fainting and fright
The wizard of centuries
An hour before
In the basement is found
The stiffened body
Of one who found out
Stricken with fear
The cat named Nig
Had died beyond doubt
