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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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
