Track Name: Sands Of Sorrow
Instrumental
Track Name: Hinterland
From the forest where darkness dwells
Feel the chill of these ice colds spells
Woodland creatures freeze in the night
Feel the embrace of the cold frost bite

Wolves prowl over these glacier nations
Hearing the howls over this
Winter foundation
Rural area, a frozen zone
In the end will chill to the bone.

Where the cold will pierce the snow
Where ice will take a hold,
Of your body, that has no control
Hinterland, hinterland

From the caverns where icicles melt
Hear the screams & the cries for help
Cavern dwellers filled with fright
From the demons that haunt in the night
Scattered souls of death and mutilation
Cast their ruling over this nation
Winter holocaust , frozen and alone
In the chamber a desolate throne

Where the cold will pierce the snow
Where ice will take a hold,
Of your body, that has no control
Hinterland, hinterland

From the woods the wolf is king
Wolfpack unite and slashes everything
Devil hound at your back
Be aware of the sacred wolf attack

The sacred wolf attack
Track Name: Cursed City
In the amazon far away, tales of crimson woe
Pleasing the sun god everyday, the dead begin to grow

Sacrifice in the air, The rituals on its way
Gather round mortal scum, With your life, you’ll pay

As the sun sets, spill the blood, upon the altar for god
Mictian awaits, your eternal debt
Their soul escapes with last breath
Burial site lies in ruins, tribal fights to death
Where the dead, eat the living
And the living, eat the dead

Scan the horizon, far away
Vanished light, becomes night
Enslave the weak to appease
Sustain your mortal life

Witness, Mictians beckoning
Towers of death, death and slavery
Empowered by, by your misery
This is the Cursed city

Bodies pile into masses, Hanging skinless and dry
Dragged to the depths, Beneath black fire
Where you await to die

Feel the blade cut the flesh
Butchered like rabid dogs
In the end all they care for
Is to please their fucking gods

As the sun sets, spill the blood
Upon the altar for god
Mictian awaits, your eternal debt
Their soul escapes it's last breath
Burial site lies in ruins,
Tribal fights to death
Where the dead, eat the living
And the living, eat the dead
You're flesh, tonight
Track Name: Sleepy Hollow
Follow your screams, you’ll never know
Until he attacks, with that axe
Your head will roll, upon his grave
He will rise, on that steed
Black as death, with piercing eyes
The smell of wood and debris
A case of death, that slowly follows
You and me, upon that grave
He will rise, on that steed
Black as death, with piercing eyes

You’ll perish in your tomb
The graveyard for you soon
You’ll never see him there
The horseman cometh I swear
He dances in the light
The horseman kills tonight

Satan laughs as you will stumble
Head will crash and surely burn
Devilish haunting fright
Long past midnight

Witch Covens, burning churches
Pentagrams, 666, Investigation of
Ichabod Crane

Beware, take care
For he rides alone
Off with his head

You’ll perish in your tomb
The graveyard for you soon
You’ll never see him there
The horseman cometh I swear
He dances in the light
The horseman kills tonight
Track Name: Behead The Beast
We have travelled too far
To behead the beast
We need to stick together
To kill the unleashed
We’ve travelled for days
Quenched of thirst

Our rations are low, our blisters burst
Heat ray burns, sweat builds up
Beer awaits when I return

Hacking, slashing, impaling away
Travel too far for it to pay
Hacking, slashing, impaling away
Need to stick together to the end of days

Behead the beast

We have travelled too far
To behead the beast
We need to stick together
To kill the unleashed
Upon it’s domain, a foul stench lurks

Eyes of hate, teeth of razor
Claws of pain, presence of death
I wonder if I’ll make it back again

Hacking, slashing, impaling away
Travel too far for it to pay
Hacking, slashing, impaling away
Need to stick together to the end of days

Behead the beast
Hacking, slashing, impaling
Behead the beast
Track Name: Unholy Forger
Here he stands, with his hammer in hand
Creating our tools of death
Fire ablaze, In Ares we praise
Black metal made for war
Visiting from all around to see
Trying to get his steel
Evil cursed blades, that runs the field
Death from all around

Known for fluxing
Eight blades strong
Unlocking the secrets within
Minotaur slayed we take this day
Blades drenched in your sin
Another quest unfolds again
The hordes of death will reign
Shattered skies, Earth demise
Blood was spilled this night

On his way, his quest for steel
Lurking in the dead of night
Upon a yurt he sees a light
He enters at his will
A figure stands, black as night
Eyes filled up with rage.
Muscled and bound, he steps forward
Holding two curved blades.

Saladin, he scourages the land to find
What is rightfully his
He is hidden within the desert
The Unholy Forger
Unholy Forger, he is the one
Sadistic torture, let judgement be done

Unholy Forger, sadistic torture

Unholy Forger, he is the one
Sadistic torture, let judgement be done
Track Name: Back To War
The time has come, so gather round
United we stand, armoured bound
In the distance, lies your fate
Stand together, attack with hate

Hear the trumpets, sound in the distance
Back to war, shine the steel
Ready for vengeance, back to war
Screams of terror, howling in the air
Back to war, archers point, aim, and fire
Back to war

North we ride, the legions in black
Victory is ours, we can’t look back
The smell of fear, across death skies
Scenes of horror, through my eyes

Slashing heads off their bodies
Back to war, back to war
Castle walls, fall with thunder
Back to war, Back to war
Winter storm, slowly approaches
Back to war, back to war
We’ve a bastard king to kill
Back to war, back to war

In the end, there can be only one
That stands triumphant, at the dawn of the sun
The taste of blood, will never leave
Now brandish that axe, there’s bone to cleave
Track Name: Ace Of Spades
If you like to gamble, I tell you I'm your man
You win some, lose some, it's all the same to me
The pleasure is to play, makes no
Difference what you say
I don't share your greed, the only card I need is
The Ace Of Spades, The Ace Of Spades

Playing for the high one, dancing with the devil
Going with the flow, it's all a game to me
Seven or Eleven, snake eyes watching you
Double up or quit, double stake or split
The Ace Of Spades, The Ace Of Spades

You know I'm born to lose,
And gambling's for fools
But that's the way I like it baby
I don't wanna live forever
And don't forget the joker

Pushing up the ante, I know you wanna see me
Read 'em and weep, the dead man's hand again
I see it in your eyes, take one look and die
The only thing you see, you know it's gonna be
The Ace Of Spades, The Ace Of Spades
Track Name: Scimitar (Live)
Screams in the night
Where the thieves
Fight an endless fight
In the storm
Of the sand
On our sacred land

Clash of the steel
From the swords
Demons that they wield
Among the stars
Covered in blood
On our sacred land

The scimitar's will rise
Under Arabian skies

Camel hordes will ride
Eradicating souls of the night
Blessed upon this throne
With Jerusalem in sight

The scimitar's will rise
Under Arabian skies

The scimitar's will rise
