HBO unleashed a new True Blood trailer just before the second season of Game of Thrones premiered on Sunday.

The first to actually show new footage and characters from the upcoming Season 5, the short 30-second clip gives a montage of scenes with a voiceover from an assumed Authority member (which will be led by Law & Order: SVU star Christopher Meloni as Roman). Clearly, the movement to have humans and vampires coexist isn’t on their agenda.

“So as the beetle nourishes the lark,” the ghostly voice says. “So shall human nourish vampire.”

And as one would expect from True Blood, the trailer includes a splattering blood, a shrill scream, returning villains and a smattering of nudity from Sookie (Anna Paquin), Jason (Ryan Kwanten), Sam (Sam Trammell) and Eric (Alexander Skarsgard).

Watch the video below.

True Blood returns in June.
