Submitted by level
1. Fear On The Bridge (Upon The Boiling Sea I) (3:14)
Behold a speeding shape
A ship upon the waves
Racing swift as death

Torment from the pits of hell
In the seas where pirates dwell
The armada sets its course
Shadowed by skull and cross-boned force
The crow's nest spots the flag
The captains plans have hit a snag
With your lives, defend the gold
In a fire fight yet to unfold
Opposing ships steered side by side
Fear on the bridge is realised
Cannons blaze in wood they blast
The Spanish ship is sinking fast

Raiders board your ship
Plunder all their gold
As they're lunging for the kill
Their riches will be ours
Take no prisoners
Leave no man alive
For the ransacking awaits
The decks awash with blood

Fight to the death
There is no other way
Honour will say
Kill
The captains duel on the bridge

When all are dead and all is won
There's riches here to steal
Bodies scattered by the waves
For sharks to make their meal in flesh

Rain begins to fall
Their gold becomes our wealth
As they sink into the sea
No mercy for the rich
We wash their blood
From our bounty gold
We feast tonight

We're heading due west
For the secret island port
The plunder divides
But give a piece to the sea

When madness of the fever grips and greed is taking hold
Nothing can ever cure your thirst except for rum and gold
Nothing can quench the thirst except for rum and gold
Nothing can quench the thirst except for rum and gold
2. Deadly Sinners (4:30)
Don’t walk the cold and ruthless streets,
they drain the life from all they meet.
the servants crying underground,
smelling mortal blood like hounds.
as you crawl the sewer pipes,
deadly sinners set to strike.
as you walk around the bend,
you’ll be dead right there where you stand!

CHORUS
flash of iron, leather, spikes, and swords!
mighty warriors with metal on their side!
enemies of metal, your death is our reward!
triumphant victory when you bring the steel to life

deadly sinners
VICTORY!
deadly sinners
WHEN YOU BRING!
deadly sinners
THE STEEL TO LIFE!
[2X]

CRUSHING THE LIGHT!
STALKING THE NIGHT!
DEADLY SINNERS ALWAYS WIN!

kill the tyrants, endless conquest
with no mercy, straight for his heart
bloodlust will overtake, anger and violence
without warning, lightning strikes in the dark
strikes you in the dark
LIGHTNING STRIKES
THE DARK!!!

RULING THE NIGHT!
WINNING THE FIGHT!
TAKING IT ALL!
Deadly, deadly sinners, you at night!

CHORUS
flash of iron, leather, spikes, and swords!
those mighty warriors with metal on their side!
enemies of metal, your death is our reward!
triumphant victory when you bring the steel to life!

deadly sinners
VICTORY!
deadly sinners
WHEN YOU BRING!
deadly sinners
THE STEEL TO LIFE!
[2X]

we are ruling the night, winning the fight
taking it all right to the end
winning the night, ruling the fight
take on last step before you die!
AAAAAAAAAAAAAhh ….. COMMON!!
RULING THE NIGHT!
WINNING THE FIGHT!
TAKING IT TO THE END!
YEEEAAAAAHHHH !!! OW!!!
3. Revenge Is A Vulture (3:26)
A sacred pact signed in blood, two allies strong in war
To the death they will defend if an enemy comes forth
Corruption rears its ugly head, feeds a traitor's mind
Stab in the back remains, to break the oath

This ancient bond of trust shattered by a fool
Upon betrayal, all thoughts turn to...

Revenge, revenge is a vulture
Take him for everything he's got
Revenge, revenge is a vulture
He won't know what he had until it's lost
Revenge

The stage is set, a battlefield, victory or death
Valor will prevail against an insult to your name

An alliance failed, the oath remains no more
This allegiance based on trust has become war
The birds of prey shall feast on carrion
As their world crumbles

Revenge, revenge is a vulture
Deceiver’s flesh ripped off his wretched bones
Revenge, revenge is a vulture
His head placed on a pike for all to see

A lesson learned for all of the usurpers to the throne
Bridges burned, honour lost, forever damn his kind
Forever damn his kind

Victory will be ours, their treachery returned
A shallow grave awaits
Forever damn his kind
A shallow grave awaits
4. Dominion Of Deceit (4:18)
All beware the blackened tongue
Its laden heavy with lies

Bleeding on the cross for the world to see
Traitor, liar, thief - all will be revealed
Millions caught in rapture torn inside with fear

Eat the flesh and drink the blood
Slave off reality for one more of the flock

Your soul, it decomposes
As poisoned words seep into your mind
Cryptic signs of holding evil thoughts at bay
While your sins, your sins are washed away

As fallen angels we will fight
Against a king that’s dead and gone
No second coming for the general of the weak

Unholy wars waged upon the land
Merciless wrath upon the non-believer
The blood it soaks into the soil
As your idols weep in shame

The council of heathens
Has gathered to bring
An end to their own slavery
Dominion of deceit will now surely fall
Controlling our thoughts no more

The sheep wander blindly in the night
As the shepherd passes on the plate
The golden-tongued orator
Spreads only wicked lies

I've seen the fire burning your temple
Ashes and dust return to the Earth

As we summon the night
And flames lick at the gates
Their dominion decays and it falls
The kingdom and crusaders
Their spell is weakened

The council of heathens
Has gathered to bring
An end to their own slavery
Dominion of deceit will now surely fall
Controlling our thoughts no more

Dominion of deceit
Bones in the ground
Controlling our thoughts no more
5. Premonition Of Pain (4:35)
Awaken by the terror of a thousand wars
A vision of the coming invading force
With haste he goes to the royal hall
The soothsayer alerts the king, the hour is nigh

The kings scoffs, says no, he does not believe
You must be in error, you must be deceived
My lord, they're coming, your people aren't safe
Upon deaf ears fall words of fate

I hold the key to what lies beyond
You wont believe what this crystal orb does show
And in his dreams he saw
Brick by brick...behold
Stone by stone...our fate
Wall by wall
This castle is set to burn

When the soothsayers riddles is spoken, beware of the answers it holds
I hold the key to what lies beyond
When the soothsayer’s words make you question, the price will be paid in blood
You wont believe what this crystal orb does show

With no more then a reason to kill

The enemy's approaching from surrounding sides
Awaiting for the first strike as catapults are drawn
Flaming arrows from the sky, the massacre begins
Order turns to chaos, no hope to win

The tyrant is here to take up your throne
He’ll take off your head before taking your crown
The mystic, he laughs, you should have listened to me
But now you beg for your life on your knees
On your knees
On your knees

When the soothsayer’s riddle is spoken, it could hold the outcome of war
I hold the key to what lies beyond
When the soothsayer’s words speak of bloodshed, just pray that the blood is not yours
You wont believe

The price paid in blood
The price paid in blood
Just pray that the blood is not yours
6. Lord Of The Storm (Upon The Boiling Sea II) (5:05)
Lord of the storm rides in the eyes, eye of the hurricane
Lord of the storm rides in the eye, in the eye of Hell
Rider on the night and ruler of the damned

Damnation creeps upon everyone, a sense of fatal warning
Within the crew there’s treachery, a mutiny is brewing
The first mate draws his cutlass forth, towards the captain challenging a duel
You’ve sentenced us to a watery grave, this ship will sink into the sea
A brutal storm is on the rise, wrath of an angered deity
Batten down the hatches for a struggle that will take all of our lives
None shall live to tell the tale of this wretched night

Terror of the seven seas, Lord of the storm spreads like disease
Unlike anything seen before, the Lord of the storm

Behold the wrath the skies unleash
Until we're dead it shall not cease
The gods have made their judgment call
And it spells certain death

The captain’s mind cannot be swayed
He’d rather die than give away
All of the treasure chests below
To the grip of the unforgiving deep

Blinding lightning sears the flesh
Raindrops fall like musketball
Piercing skin, wood, steel and bone
All aboard will pay

The captain surfaces for air amongst the torrent nightmare
Latching to a piece of the hull, destructions everywhere
No more survivors from the blast, the ship drifts beneath the waves
The master coasts for hours, before the storm begins to wane
An albatross flies overhead, a sign that land is near
An island spotted in the distance, maybe the torment is at an end

Rain is gone, but doom is near, a shadow’s on his heart
Immortality is his, salted tears will drench his days

The captains lost upon the seas
Penance for his wicked deeds
Cheated by his crew and God
As he floats and waits to drown

He has no clue what lies ahead
A deadly isle for him to dread
He thinks he can rebuild his life
Set sail to conquer the sea again
As he touches his feet upon the sandy shore
The sun will rise once more

Lord of the storm rides in the eye, eye of the hurricane
Lord of the storm rides in the eye, in the eye of Hell
Rider on the night, ruler of the damned
7. Wykydtron (3:52)
In the year four thousand fifty five, Wykydtron came to life
Born of scientific design to serve all human kind
Artificial intelligence bred for future war
When galaxies will crumble and fall to their knees

It breaks free from it's hold taking military control
A fate seen all across the world
It takes hold of the earth, breeding legions to it's control
Soon to seize all power in the sky

Programmed to crush
Programmed to destroy
It's brainwaves only wired for death

It's wired to kill
All On The Earth
Nuclear bound - you'll fear his name

Hey it's the Wykydtron
It's the Wykydtron
Hey it's the Wykydtron
Whoa-oh!

An army's formed to crush the earth
Our creation, the master of our demise
Humanity is doomed

Fifteen years since creations time, the war has turned to space
Human kind has once chance left to turn the tides of fate
Warheads are the only way to stop the Wykydtron
Millions die, radiation blast from Hell

Flesh, it peels away as all the people die
This is the end of the human race
Our creation becomes the master of our own demise

We are drones
We fooled ourselves
We finally sealed our fate

Hey it's the Wykydtron
It's the Wykydtron
Hey it's the Wykydtron
Whoa-oh!
8. Swordmaster (4:24)
Born with shining steel in hand, fighting's all you know
Mastering the blade, to kill those who betray
With skill and deadly grace, severed heads erase
A wrong that has been done, only death can overcome

Master of the blade, wielder of the steel
With iron fury, killer fire and speed
With his mighty sword he reaps his vengeance
Coming from the depths to right a wrong
From the depths of Hell
To deal his wrath

Swordmaster, bounty hunter for the damned
Stand and fight - kill or die

His blade is gleaming and from it blood is streaming
None shall survive beyond the light of dawn
None shall survive beyond morning light

Vengeance served with cold delight, bodies split in two
Bone and sinew spray for debts that come to be repaid
Bloodlust in your mind, the painful truth is what they'll find
The course is at an end, to Hell is where he sends you

Swordmaster, bounty hunter for the damned
Stand and fight - kill or die

The master moves on, keeping the balance of the world
Crusher of souls and ruler of Hell
9. Axes Of Evil (4:28)
Hark!
A scout has reached the gate, bringing new of war
In a fortnight they'll be here, legions of the nameless fear
Our king he cannot lead, our king is growing old
With a courageous cry, a young man rises from the fold
The answer we seek lies in the frozen waste
I leave at dawn with haste for...
Axes of evil

Astonished faces look his way, as the hopeful carry horror in their hearts
Uncertain of a power that malice forged in steel
I must face this threat that challenges our lives
I'll strike out with vengeance, ill reap from their demise
No! You must not seek the blades, it's said that they are cursed
Possess you if they're found, to the dreadlord they are bound
Cutting flesh for him to eat, bloody raw lucifer meat
Peril awaits you in the fjords, we cannot lose you to the...

Axes of evil, strong not feeble
Axes of evil, come on!
Axes of evil, out fates wrapped in steel
Axes of evil, come on! Come on!

The future of our land lies in the balance
You must go to save us all

At last they're found floating in a crystal orb
Speak the incantation written on the wall
In a blinding flash the axes fly into his hands
Too much power for him to bear, he'll wreak havoc on the land

Wreaking havoc on the land
Wreaking havoc on the land

Axes of evil, our fates wrapped in steel
Axes of evil, come on!
Axes of evil, will kill all the people
Axes of evil, come on! Come on!

Here comes our hero, back from his quest
Here to save us all, deliver us from death

Axes of evil
On the fourteenth mornings chill, from the rampart he is spotted on the hill
With a look of burning poison that fills his eyes with rage
I have returned to put an end to all your lives
With no remorse i will reap from your demise
Axes of evil
10. Crazy Nights (3:18)
on shadowed roads we run, for secrets london holds
new cross to camden town, with metal force we rage
in paradise we clash, you will perish
our ambition, live to fight for all the
crazy nights

crazy nights, crazy nights
intoxicating fury
crazy nights, crazy nights, crazy nights
horns up high in praise
crazy nights

running through the night, they all blur into one
living for tonight, for soon tomorrow comes
ever under shadow of the pale amber towers
venture into the smoldering forest, fall under its powers

throwing iron fists, blackened bruises swell
scattering the field, choking our last victim
hammersmith is calling me
all desires lie in wait to feed the
crazy nights

crazy nights, crazy nights
intoxicating fury
crazy nights, crazy nights, crazy nights
horns up high in praise

paradise erupts, bodies hit the ground
the enemy is vanquished, all hail, the victor is crowned
rivals rise to fight against the metal force
none can match the fury of these crazy nights

crazy nights, crazy nights
none can match the METAAAAAAAAAAL!
crazy nights
11. Destroy The Orcs (2:21)
Kill the Orcs
Slay the Ocrs
Destroy the Orcs

You returned late home that night
Evidence all around you from the fight
You see your family's blood spilled on the ground
There's no trace of the Orcs to be found

Take the broadsword in your hand
Follow the Orcs to their camp
You will have vengeance in blood
With their heads they will pay the price

Spill blood
On their trail we hunt them tirelessly
Spill blood
Bloodshed eases their loss
Spill their blood
Their decapitation leads to the cessation
Of the sadness, of the woe
Spill the blood
12. The Phantom Of The Crimson Cloak (3:11)
Out of the fog comes a huddled shape
Cloaked head to toe in crimson flowing robes
It hunts, kills, eats

Unseen in sickening mists of night, some evils lurking in the gloom
Voracious hunting appetite and piercing demon eyes
A mandrake sets upon its prey, slashing mangled claws
Soulstealer strangling terror, in crimson cloak it kills

Mortals who cross the path
The phantom hunts and kills
With a swift ferocity
The demons carcass strikes

Death is his way, dare not to cross his path
The phantom of the crimson cloak stalks the dark and silent night

A killer waiting for the strike, in silence you will stand in fright
Captured by its frozen stare, your body drained of essence
Predator of the pure in heart, sending all their souls to hell
There is no escape from here, phantom horror attack

He must feed
On innocent human flesh
To hold the madness at bay
That torments his eternal march

Death is his way, dare not cross his path
The phantom of the crimson cloak stalks the dark and silent night

An ancient corpse
He's trod this worn path
Many forlorn years
Aeons yet to come

Death is his way, dare not cross his path
The phantom of the crimson stalks the dark and silent night
13. Isle Of Eternal Despair (Upon The Boiling Sea III) (3:51)
Kiss the sand, praising the dry land he has found
Everywhere on shore there's trasure all around
Bury deep the horded loot far down below
No man or god will ever take away the plunder

He will find a cave to hide away the gold
Doomed to a desert isle
All of the riches in his hands
No living thing around
But he will never leave the cave
Alone with bounty gold
Something compels him to stay
Heaven or hell, time will tell

The captain thinks what will come of this
If this is the end, the gold must die with me
Delving underground, to his dismay
The captain finds a curse

The isle of eternal despair, to spend eternity alone
The isle of eternal despair, with gold beyond his dreams

What a sight that's sitting right before his eyes
Ancient spoils of the pirates of the past
Skeletons are sheathed in gold by candlelight
Hunger sets buts he will guard the jewels forever

Now hes punished by the gods
Forever pondering his greed
But hes doomed to eternal life
As a golden skeleton

The isle of eternal despair, doomed as his flesh begins to rot
The isle of eternal despair, knowing he'll never really die

As he decays into living, golden bones
Eyes open watching for the rest of his life
