Track Name: Back...to the Realm
From the remote lands
beyond the ancient sea
our invincible army returns!!
Victory riding its black sails!
Light of glory shines on our King!
He comes back with a crown of bones,
master of more lands than when he left
And soldiers are shouting his name!

Many awful screaming orcs
killed with our swords
their mighty shields can't
stop our rage

Prayers to their hollow gods
and very useless cries
gave them only empty hopes and cruel dies!

Shipload full of gold and jewels
Heroes come again
It's time to celebrate
Them, screaming our name
Ephyra!

Wine and beer
grateful dance around the flame
women, this is time to undress, this is our aim!

Victory and Majesty!
Honor and steel!
Every single fighter
Today is a king!

For us fallen in battle
Walhalla doors are wide
But for the survivors
The woman's legs are outright!

Sitting on the black throne
With twenty concubines
Leaning on his sword
Here he is the mighty king

He grabs seven women
and proves us that
In any type of combat
he does not ever pulling back!


While the sunset marks
The end of the feast
And everyone returns home
Drunk and satisfied
King is awake in the war room,
he can't sleep
Looking for his possessions
On the ancient map
He's already thinking about
The next one to attack
"What will be the next kingdom
To fall under my steel??"
No rest for the conquerors
War is in the blood!
Only the dead and weak can
bored in peace!
Track Name: No Prisoners
Your hands
are shaking,
the walls will not
protect you
Your hearts
are frozen
and every hope
is in vain.

From the
Ephyra’s kingdom
Here’s the invader
arrives!
Thousand of
cruel warriors,
Black dragons
and trolls

So the battle begins!
The bloodshed starts!
Conquer or die!
No prisoners allowed!!

Terror flies
on black wings
Bullets of fire
burn the air!
Fearful screams
rumble everywhere
Legions are marching
towards you!

An huge ram
With demon’s head
Crashes the gate
Enemies are in!
Fight for life
On inner walls,
on battlements
but it is too useless!!

So everyone inside!
Break the enemy lines!
Unleash your fury!
No prisoners allowed!!

For one killed,
one hundred comes
A bloody river
You can’t stop!
There’s no
honor or glory
just destruction
for you!

The battle is
In throne room now
Royal guards are
The last hope!
Last defense
Is falling now
Your king is dead
Go away!

The enemy is defeated!
The Kingdom is ours!
Kill the survivors!
No prisoners allowed!!

Bow to our power
Death walking with us!
You have no future when
our shields obscure your sun.
Track Name: Laws of the Elves
Minstrels sing and bards proclaim:
“whole kingdom has to celebrate
the great King who marries a nymph
coming from the Elvish land.
Ethereal shape, immortal soul
Wonderful daughter of the woods.
He is a strong and wise King
his sword doesn’t know defeat”.

The elves came from the forest
To punish the human’s arrogance
to avoid the sacrilegious union.
Their murderous rage
fell on village like’n hurricane:
“No mercy for the sinners!
Sacred laws have been broken,
we’ll wash shame in their blood!”
“Like ears of corn, one by one…
they must be all mowed!!!”

Alone among the human deads
Protected by your lover, you’ve survived.
To accept you, was the only guilt of these people
and now, they'r all dead.
Lookin’ for love in a human’s heart
Like a sweet and crazy hope.
You have found a cruel cold death,
Caused by your people’s steel.

Oh father…
my heart is crying but I’ve done what I had to do
what have you done?
the laws are immutable and you know this
They have no guilt
it’s your fault but I couldn’t allow:
I loved him,
you would have been sentenced forever.
why don’t you understand?
I did this ‘cause I love you… my daughter
Track Name: Journey
Mud is clinging to my boots
As the rain is washing away the night
Today I will not greed to the dawn
I will not say goodbye to the moon

Thousand way I will cross
Nothing Left behind
Memories send to fire

Thousand way I will cross
Nothing left behind
No gods care of me

“Never stop” is the order
The horizon will be risen
Only dream have no border
Even death is not forever

How many are the ways?
Will be hope for the weak ones?
What’s the source of our days?
Answer lies in the journey

Go!
As the wind blows strong!
As the cold steel hurts!
Even more than the flows of time!


One way in front of me
Thousand left behind
Memories carved with fire

One way in front of me
Thousand left behind
There’s no god to pray

See the routes in the stars
Once again I choose mine
Days go by leaving scars
Lives flow on me as dude


I’ll walk ‘til my legs will kneel
I’ll fight ‘til my hands collapse
I’ll love ‘til my veins are empty
I’ll hate ‘til my heart explodes

“Never stop” is the order
The horizon will be risen
Only dream have no border
Even death is not forever

How many are the ways?
Will be hope for the weak ones?
What’s the source of our days?
Answer lies in the journey

Go!
As the wind blows strong!
As the cold steel hurts!
Even more than the flows of time!
Track Name: Flames of Revenge
A scream shake the morning
As the sun begins to shine
One man’s dying, nobody say a thing
For the good of the thousand lives in hell
This dark tyranny has never admitted replies

No night can last 'till the end of all times shout of deep rage will no longer be choked

Burn!

By day the rule by night we plain
We need to defend (our) houses, sons and lives
They treat us like ants but if we stay unite we can defeat the giant
This time they’ve gone too far

No night can last 'till the end of all times
shout of deep rage will no longer be choked

Night
With no moon
Light will
Never shine
Black our knives
Death by our side
Black our knives
Death by our side

One by one your men are falling
One by one we show you our smile
Every murder and every rape
Tonight will be cleaned with your blood

No night can last 'till the end of all times
There is no wrong way that could never change
shout of deep rage will no longer be choked
Tonight you’ll burn in the flames of revenge
Track Name: Cold Pain
Another day has come and gone, I don’t care, Am I alive?
Orders are told what can I do? Just obey. Kill for my lord.
……………………………………………………..
Moonlight, on our camp, lights my sins, I can’t escape from what I’ve done
It gives orders, tells the truth, but it’s not the same as mine

There is no nation
There is no flag
Nothing cleans, my painful tears
Guilt is a stone
Hiding light
I feel only dark cold pain

Wrapping my sword: the only friend, I can trust. I join the line
Silence has been slain by battle drums. Smell of war. I swallow dust

Day breaks, I step forward, face my comrades, looking through their clueless eyes
“See the puppet, joining doom and he is going to cut his strings”

There is no nation
There is no flag
Nothing cleans, my painful tears
Guilt is a stone
Hiding light
I feel only dark cold pain

There is no nation
There is no flag
Nothing cleans, my painful tears

Guilt is a stone
Hiding light
I feel only dark cold pain

I feel only dark cold pain
Track Name: Dark Wolf
Fight to the end of
your way of blood
From the darkness
To the revenge!

The enemies run in fear
Your fury’ll never stop
U’ll take the king’s head
With your steel!

He must Die!

Scream your anger for
Your slain family
Take your armour
Now you are alone….

Fight!

Son of pain rides!

Black warrior rides
no one will survive
dark wolf attacks
bloody sword in’ur hands
angel of death
claim you revenge!
black warrior rides
black warrior rides
Track Name: Hunter's Dance
(Instrumental)
Track Name: Heresy
Heretic plague, seed of rotten beliefs that poison our land
we will burn who won’t repent

Even in the darkest night
With no moon and no starlight
Sun is our father it will soon awake

There’s no way out
Prayers are vain
You’re forsaken in your hands

No more lies
Renounce your sins
Or you’ll be forever damned

Heretic plague, seed of rotten beliefs that poison our land
we will burn who won’t repent

Even in the darkest night
With no moon and no starlight
Sun is our father it will soon awake

I can hear you
I can feel the rain
Mother I miss you so

Was I dreaming?
I was so afraid
Father I knew you would come
………………………………………………………….

Tears from the skies. Wipe out the false gods and their lies
How could it happen, how could the spirit of human be so full of fear
Restless storm breath, bring them back to the seeds of death

Crash of thunders, steals the warmth from their veins
How could it happen, how could the spirit of human be so full of fear
Torches of hate, carriers of the final faith

Pray for the silence, the quickest death is the only gift we can give you
Splint of eternity, forever is your rule of equity
Open your heart, my daughter, there is still hope for the path of the man
………………………………………………………….

The temples of the fallen gods
Will be smashed at all
Heretics will be burned and
Order must be restored

Father will be finally here
To protect us from our sins
Our funeral pyres
Will be its forgiveness path

Our fallen hero
will be risen from the death
you are the one
who guides the human race
yeah

The poison from our lands
Will be erased by our will
Heretics will be burned and
Order must be restored

Receiving the human force
It will see the whole
Our funeral pyres
Will be its forgiveness path
