Abbath Lyrics

(10)
Submitted by level Eagles
1. To War! (5:35)
Speed demon spread thy shanks wide
Shower offense! Defile
Citadel pure desire's vice
Damnation nigh Behemoths feast
Old bloodlines die -
Warrior caste feed raging beast
Hear the roar of battle-horn. To War!

Dread Reavers rise from dismal mist
Ghouls emerge - Catalyst
Form jagged, spike - studded fist
Lean years breed - a skeletal corps
Deviant yield - Omnivore
Tide devours craven shore
To battlefield stream the swarm. To War!

Mephitic mob - torch the havens
Chew the ribs of temple-maidens
Blackened babes - hung on high
Nourish the hawks circling sky
Talons to flesh - a hook-beak strips
Long pig to shreds - tongue from lips
Wild Reavers pledge - their guts to pour
Blizzard kin raise the skulls.

Talisman shield - the sword our prophesy
Grail Quest - benighted destiny
War paths - must terminate in blood
Pit erupt - spray ochre upon the mud.

Plague Weavers spread Y-pestis far
Thin armoured ranks
Marauders close - Decimate guard
Hammer blade on anvil forge
Hel know our name
Wade knee deep - in sod of gore
Once more unto the breach. To War.
2. Winterbane (6:49)
Cleanse steel in carnage - Unleash chthonic Darkness
Scud stochastic vortex - Blitz vicious bastards
Sheath blades in carcass - Disembowel tangled skein
Upon ripe flesh we harvest - Human grain mortal pain

Reaper rides on genocides' arc of scythes.

Combat casts the warrior - warfare marks the age
Stone to bronze to iron - steel is our rage!
Blood soaked grimoires spell - Hel a million ways
Vellum spills the venom - a poison chalice sprays.

Gods of War! Exhort the hordes as battle roars.
A Dragon dives Belching hives of serpent flies

Scribes skewer history - Truth dies in the telling
Scribes skewer history - Truth dies in the yelling of lies!

Afford us our sins. Bloodlust our wings
In death's domain of Winterbane.

Death wept that grim day - gutting ghost from viscera
Flaying soul from the clay - cleaving mind from terror.
Reavers rode roughshod - 'cross the skull-crushed plain
Legions mass the grave - where spirits shriek insane.

Fire drakes dive. Burn ranks alive. Dead worlds collide.

Ravens glide. Swoop and pluck the Hero's eyes.

Scars carve the memory - truth lies in the cutting
Scars carve the memory - truth lies in the culling of lies

Seraphim soar above the ichor
The sea of slain at Winterbane.

Wilderness will not claim the beast
Nor civilized state deny its feast
Not gibberish of madman, hysteric chant of priest
Nor lovers' brutal sighs, lend the savage peace.

A demon raised in flames must stride
Stricken trails in stark divide
The frozen waste of Winterbane
To face the monster still inside.
Deep within its burning eyes
A killer stirs, starts to rise...
Reavers ride the ice-crest tides
Thunderous hooves churn the skies.
3. Ashes of the Damned (3:51)
Ashes of the Damned - bourne on pestilential winds
Zephyrs flay the sky - cinders bath in blaze
Scorch raw starry vault - Above the earth accursed
Carnage beyond despair - souls seared in gaze.
Embers of warriors - fuel legends heroes bled
Seidmen weep the tears Valkyries fear to shed.

Ashes of the Damned

Serpent-tongue sick with thirst - in thy venom we immerse.
Necrotic Lord Bless Our Chains - baptise heathen flesh in flames.
But free of all Rapture's stain. From ash The Damned will rise again!

Rats, spread deadly spore - bubonic swarm.
Claws, of vermin rake - ancient graves.
Belch, necrotic maw - kisses blistering.
Melt, Death's face to yours - Decay with Grace.

Frost, bite iron lung - demonic storm.
Spit, last heathen words - against the hail.
Flesh, raise heavy chains - curse the skies.
Spark, suck lightening strike - the final nail.

Ashes of the Damned - bourne on pestilential winds
Zephyrs flay the sky - cinders bath in blaze
Scorch raw starry vault - Above the earth accursed
Carnage beyond despair - souls seared in gaze.
4. Ocean of Wounds (4:44)
Club-foot cripple's withered stride
Disturbs the dust of barren tide.
Lifetime spun from martial pride
Graft of scars on calloused hide.

Weathered vet of many campaigns
Knuckles grip anew the reigns.
Charger harnessed - standard raised.
Sombre stroke to crown aspire.

Drown fears in void of infernal Styx.
Warrior's doubt in terror cicatrix.
Drown the sound of doom in cobalt depths.
Submerge grief in the Ocean of Wounds.

In hateful breeze the guillotine hum
Of axe descent to nape of scum.
Wed to pain, to horror numb.
Crimson world will soften the slum.

Short cuts burn when u seek fire.
Bone-deep become the demon sired.
Strong through trials, torments dire.
Sombre stroke to crown aspire.

Drown fears in void of infernal Styx.
Warrior's doubt in terror cicatrix.
Drown the sound of doom in cobalt depths.
Submerge grief in the Ocean of Wounds.
5. Count the Dead (4:57)
Grimshard Lord of northern Reach
Heed the dread Hel can teach.
Despair in halls of burning keep
Taste the tears kinfolk weep
See the twilight realm you rule
Land aflame, flesh our fuel.

Inspire men at arms, the brave who have not fled.
Lead ire on final charge, until no soul is left
To Count the Dead.

Greybeard swing your broken sword
In killing arcs' terminal stroke
Let battle-cry rip from throat
As lungs fill with acrid smoke
Swallow bile of livid fear
On which you choke so cavalier.

Inspire men at arms, the brave who have not fled.
Lead ire on final charge, until no soul is left
To Count the Dead.

Cataracts cloud your streaming eyes
Glory fades in dying light.
Banners bright drained of colour
Grey in dusk of deadly night.

Old Lion maimed draw your knife
End your worthless life.
Kneel before the Raven Hordes
Of Ice, Fire and Strife.

Lord Warden where's your flock?
Sons lie slain at your feet.
Daughters shamed by reaver's cock
Your champions butchered meat.

Grimshard Lord of northern Reach
Heed the dread Hel can teach.
Despair in halls of burning keep
Taste the tears kinfolk weep
See the twilight realm you rule
Land aflame, flesh our fuel.
Upon the carcass of the world
Cenotaph for the scourged.

Inspire men at arms - the brave who have not fled
Lead ire on final charge - until no soul is left
To Count the Dead.
6. Fenrir Hunts (4:38)
Rank and file of Legions vile form their battle lines
Clad in armour black as night Northern Darkness sines
Banners raised skin of slaves slap in Vanir's breeze
Seidmen cut rune wards deep Hel thaws all shall freeze.

Release the flood a rampant tide of blood
Will fill this black lagoon
Warriors weened on gore and gruel must heed
The carrion call of doom.

Pack Master! Unleash the Reavers eager for rapine.
Emerge from lair of ice and gneiss cave and ravine.
Vulpine scouts, winter-lean, scent meat on ripe spore
A feast awaits the frenzy of rabid fang and claw.

Volcanic shores bleed a gush of iron ore
From ashes Death will bloom.
Howl for Hel Voracious Dogs of War.
Fenrir hunts Snaps jaws of doom.

Skills to hone, swords to whet to keen edge damascene.
Spear tip to taper, arrow fletch, hammerhead to clean
In spleen.

Shield to boss, helm to crest, battle axe to grind
Wound to stitch, gut to void, Berzerker-rage to blind.
Sick mind.

Beneath a shroud of bludgeoned sky
We tread the dust on corpse-strewn roads.
Hum laments of requiems
Half-remembered odes
Of orphaned brats, weeping widows.

We march to crack of thunder Ragnarok in our eyes
To drumbeat of the Damned we salute your sacrifice
We march for love of slaughter drunk on wine of blades
We fight for eternal night until the End of Days

Release the flood a rampant tide of blood
Will fill this black lagoon.
Warriors weened on gore and gruel must heed
The carrion call.

Volcanic shores bleed a gush of iron ore
From ashes Death will bloom.
Howl for Hell Voracious Dogs of War.
Fenrir hunts Snaps jaws of doom.
7. Root of the Mountain (5:39)
Stooped now the wraith, more shadow than flesh.
Once mighty hews lie sunken in chest.
Spectral hoar frost spat on breath.
A pulse ebbs, yet, still Lord of Death.
A silent tongue whispers tumours in head.
Bending will of wardogs led.

To glorious carnage
Armies were fed
Leech to thrombosis
Nations were bled.

A world quailed in terror
Stricken with fear
Parents slew children
As juggernaut drew near.

Beneath vast crush of crag
Entombed in gut of molten slag
An Archon-King cursed to live
As regent in Abyss of eldritch Necropolis.

Stalking caverns'
Gargantuan scope -
Revenant sits on his throne.
Emperor infernal
In City of Bone
And shattered stone.

At World's Edge a mighty range
Cuts through cloud impaling Heaven
Follow fissures down - Behold:
The Root of the Mountain.
8. Endless (4:37)
Phoenix in a frozen flame
Trapped in Arctic-Winter crypt
Scars of past have cast the chains
From Book of Ages we are ripped
Raven glide on Polar-winds
Hailstones sharp shards of glass
Banish thoughts of lesser men
In the end flesh is grass.

Divided we fall
United we rule
Hybrid stand tall
Ignite freak with fool.

Phoenix soar as sunlight thaws
Glacier and frigid earth
Shake the ice from fiery mane
Torch the skies emblazon birth
Raven dive through lightning strike
Whip cirrus into swell
Pierced by deadly shrike
Spirit flies, no man can fell.

Divided we fall
United we rule
Steadfast we toil
Rebellion our tool

Dauntless Fearless Tireless Relentless.

Phoenix rise and conquer Time
Temper fate
Reclaim the zeitgeist in its prime
Rejuvenate
Raven dive through lightning strike
Whip cirrus into swell
Pierced by shrike
Spirit flies, no man can fell.

Divided we fall
United we rule
Steadfast we toil
Rebellion our tool

Dauntless Fearless Tireless Relentless.
9. Riding on the Wind (Judas Priest cover) (3:04)
Shooting for the stars
Cruise the speed of light
Glowin god of Mars
Body burning bright

Well I'm ridin', ridin' on the wind
Yes I'm ridin', ridin' on the wind

Tearing up through life
Million miles an hour
Blinding all in sight
Surging rush of power

Well I'm ridin', ridin' on the wind
Yes I'm ridin', ridin' on the wind

Ridin' on the wind! Ridin' on the wind!
Ridin' on the wind! RIDING ON THE WIND!

Thunderbolt from hell
Shattering aloud
Screamin' demons yell
Bursting through the clouds

Well I'm ridin', ridin' on the wind
Yes I'm ridin', ridin' on the wind
10. Nebular Ravens Winter (Immortal cover) (4:17)
Damnation calls
Final blasts close the earth
Immortal victory
Winters bane upon the masses
Snow spiraling towards auroral clouds
Clear nebulous visions sight
Soulwinds fall into the dark ice realms
Where you now reach far

Blackwinged ravens cry for tragedies to come
Lurking with snowfall
By doom they drag the robe of ice
Frozen of heart you now reach far

In the nebular ravens winter
Winds are known from where they blow
Nebular ravens winter
Strength comes from us above

Ravens season has begun
Melancholic ageless and unknown
Mesmerized you fall in our domain
Freezing in the heart

Sojourn from the elder ravens
Beauteous winter birth
An eerie mage
Emblazoned with the biting winds
Damnation calls
With staring glowing yearning eyes
Poised they strike again and drag
Us all below

In the nebular ravens winter
Winds are known from where they blow
Nebular ravens winter
Might bestowed from us above

Ravens season has begun
Melancholic ageless and unknown
Mesmerized you fall in our domain

Inhale the effluence of the demonworlds
Freezing in the heart
