Lady Death 06:26
Lyrics: McKittrick Music: Kamburov I don't feel the weight as the target is marked I see the face, but acknowledge no soul Unwitting lamb in the eye of the eagle A bolt from beyond to the base of the skull Screaming from my barrel The kiss of sweet release Concealed in shadow, at one with the dark Cold blooded hunter, the hammer to pull Lady Death with a quota near full Screaming from my barrel The kiss of sweet release Prey, caught dead to rights Marked, within my sights Alone tempting fate, I play my part With deadly grace, I'm pursuing my goal A thorn in the side of ultimate evil Cold force of vengeance set loose on the front Never know my name, but you'll feel my sting Unknown pursuer, the dealer of pain Demon of black scorn at war with the Reich Lady Death with her quota now full Screaming from my barrel The kiss of sweet release Fear, Lady Death is near Single shot, straight to the heart

Lyrics: McKittrick, Kamburov, Sutton Music: Kamburov Under the light of a northern sky Odin's chosen will die Ascend to the Gates of Valhalla Heroes of stature and power Open the Gates of Valhalla, Hail Odin! Battlefield chosen, battlefield slain Welcome the Kings of Valhalla, Hail Odin! Proud warriors sing Under the guns of Lützen The roar of a lion was silenced Slain under the cross Soul the Aesir will claim Hail, warrior kings Find valor within Ride like the wind On wings of a Valkyrie Son of Thule in the land of Mali An iron guard for the innocent All-seeing eye All-guiding hand Open the Gates of Valhalla, Hail Odin! Battlefield chosen, battlefield slain Welcome the Kings of Valhalla, Hail Odin! Proud warriors sing Hail, warrior kings Find valor within Ride like the wind On wings of a Valkyrie

Scrollkeeper 04:08
Lyrics: Marfleet Music: Kamburov Freed upon this world of empty black souls The keeper of dark and light has been born Forced to feed on events long passed The blank pages in blood are cast Born to this world, it lives Future unknown, the dread Loss of hope Armies will rise to kill the one Rise, we ride, destroy Sealing your fate We have to fight the tyrant of blind and witless men Free the minds, wake the sheep The rising is at hand Bound in flesh and bone will prevail Quill of life, script of fate, seal the end of time Cloaked in black, spawned Form unknown but feared, become one To right the wrongs of man Judgment at hand, conspiring Quill in hand, nations fall Repent the lies Your time to die Born to this world it lives Future unknown, the dread Loss of hope Words of truth, and lies become belief Scrolls of life, scrolls of death, confusion in the mind Centuries forged in tombs of the dead Pariah, outcast, keeper of the scrolls Words of truth, lies become belief Scrolls of life, Scrolls of death, confusion in the mind When the end is near, rise the Scrollkeeper

Auto da Fe 05:17
Music and Lyrics: Kamburov Unholy witches dance In a parson's wet dream Chastise, free of sin Desire renders him insane Act of Faith, Punish the body for sins of the mind Flagellate, mortify the flesh Purify one from sin Desire, wash away Depravity in the eyes of the Lord Round up heretics Stoke the embers of hate Prepare for the feast A blessed virgin is born Auto Da Fe, Bow down to religious scorn Master, inquisitor Root out evil thru torture and fiery death Carve out dissent By the edge of the knife The House of Aragon All powerful stands Auto Da Fe Ceremony at day break Auto Da Fe The impure burn on the stake Round up heretics Live exorcism, keeps the rabble in check Dungeon masters Working overtime Axes fall on neck after neck Malicious priests stack the bloody deck The glory of Aragon Hail the well-born Empire's galleons Full to the prow Gold must flow While savages toil Auto Da Fe Ceremony at day break Auto Da Fe The impure burn on the stake

Lyrics: McKittrick Music: Kamburov Sword hand of God To minister of Pain Companion of The Maid To architect of shame Mind was not your own Gave your life away, Sacrificed to the fire Stared deep into the abyss Answered the voice you found within Mind was not your own Thrall to the lord of sin, Sacred fire Gilles de Rais, why did you fall astray? Gilles de Rais, accept your fate Giles de Rais, why did you fall astray? Giles de Rais, accept your fate Sold your immortal soul Gave your life away Sold your immortal soul Now ascend the gallows pole The gallows pole Gilles de Rais, why did you fall astray? Gilles de Rais, accept your fate Giles de Rais, why did you fall astray? Giles de Rais, accept your fate Stared deep into the abyss Answered the voice you found within Mind was not your own Thrall to the lord of sin, Fall from grace Gilles de Rais, why did you fall astray Gilles de Rais, accept your fate Giles de Rais, why did you fall astray Giles de Rais, accept your fate

Lyrics: McKittrick Music: Kamburov Alchemy of the mind Inspiration divine Universe in my hands Regress grains of sand Former truth left behind This new future mine Great new work to plan Monument to the grand Pretender, no peer to my genius Usurper, your claims left hollow From my labor came the fruit of all knowledge While the fields of your mind were fallow Clockwork universe Now at my disposal Keys to reality Unlock truth for me From this lattice bind To the cosmic spine Great new work to plan Monument to the grand Pretender, no peer to my genius Usurper, your claims left hollow From my labor came the fruit of all knowledge While the fields of your mind were fallow Alchemy of the mind Inspiration divine Universe in my hands Regress grains of sand Former truth left behind This new future mine Great new work to plan Monument to the grand Pretender, no peer to my genius Usurper, your claims left hollow From my labor came the fruit of all knowledge While the fields of your mind were fallow

Blood & Sand 03:13
Lyrics: McKittrick, Marfleet Music: Kamburov The battle has been lost, now the plague sets in Beliefs with sword in hand, cutting through your neck Wait for death to come, free them from this pain Crushed skulls in hands of blood, invoking blood and sand An apocalyptic vision Fueled by inhumanity Any action taken Only spreads their plague The will to fight consumes, hatred leads the way Revenge, dissect the snake, death that can't be tamed Mass the weak and blind, under flag of scorn Crushed skulls in hands of blood, invoking blood and sand Many heads to the hydra Poison the minds of man Any action taken Validated their cause One by one they fall, ghosts of history Reapers of the flesh, burning through your veins Battle has been fought for ages The dead amassed in numbers Evil minds, brainwashed soldiers Blood and sand The command

Surrender 05:08
Music and Lyrics: Kamburov Some are born to darkness Others - addicted to pain Let the blood on your hands Be washed away by the falling rain Punished for your past misdeeds By the hordes of the insane Tyranny dressed in disguise, Crushed by forces of market oppression Animal instinct, forces of self-preservation Dark days, empty summer nights Remind us of bloodshed again Surrender, surrender, surrender Oh, surrender On the streets of Kreuzberg Is the cure for all pain The dark alleys of West Berlin The monster feeds again Instinct of self-preservation, Instinct of self-ruination Murder, the bane of our salvation Dark days, empty summer nights Remind us of bloodshed again Surrender, surrender, surrender oh, surrender

Music and Lyrics: Kamburov Nicephoros the First Holy Roman Emperor Assembled armies over Eighty thousand strong They marched a month Through treacherous terrain To subjugate Bulgaria Byzantine nobles, Patricians and their heirs The armies of Constantinople, Anatolia and Thrace The imperial guards, the fearsome excubiti For Roman glory, is there a better way to die? Pliska's defense, twelve thousand warriors Fights to the last man, falls to the sword The Capital is lost, time to rape and plunder To the victor belong the spoils. Sated with lust, drunk on choicest wines The emperors' savagery reaches new heights He orders all children put to death Flattened by threshing stones For those who wish to know The path to victory For those who wish to see The vanquish of the enemy For those who wish to know The path to glory Victorious, we drink From the skulls of the enemy The Great Khan Rides from the North Extends peace to the Byzantine horde The emperor laughs, His armies have prevailed, Continues to plunder Khan Krum arms Women and men Closes the pass To Byzantine egress Cut off, surrounded, ripe for slaughter, Vicious assault The emperors' head, placed on a spike Eighty thousand slain, Vicious bloodbath For those who wish to know The path to victory For those who wish to see The vanquish of the enemy For those who wish to know The path to glory Victorious, we drink From the skulls of the enemy

Lyrics: McKittrick Music: Kamburov They call me “bastard”, perhaps their words are true Through blood and iron, I always carried through Once the deed is done, a new name I’ll don You’ll call me “conqueror” Fortune favors the bold Take what I am owed Fortune favors the bold You’ll bend to my will A comet marked my coming, across the channel sea A claim decreed by heaven, bestowed upon me Once the deed is done, watch them break and run I am the conqueror Fortune favors the bold Take what I am owed Fortune favors the bold You’ll bend to my will Defied me at their peril And they were all cut down Upon this field of sorrow, I reached and took the crown Once the war is won Under this autumn sun I’ll be the conqueror Fortune favors the bold Take what I am owed Fortune favors the bold You’ll bend to my will I was born a bastard, became the conqueror Fortune favors the bold Take what I am owed Fortune favors the bold You’ll bend to my will
