Submitted by level Skullgrindere
1. Stormhammer (4:17)
[XU:] "Behold your creation, CROM ! Thine wicked seed - the Bastard of the Cursed Witch - has crushed the Gleaming Citadels of Holy K'UR and has promised to soon destroy thine Sacred City of Worship, Glorious A'RYTH-RA ! We must stop his mad actions ! We are in danger to lose control of the situation... are we not the righteous Rulers of this Dark Domain ?"
[CROM:] "You know, there's only one way to make an end to his destructive course ! We must empower the Dragonslayer again with immortal Moon-Magic and fierce Death-Spells even the Sorcerers fear ! And we just have seen what Magic and Power can do to a Soul Unpure... Do you think that it's clever to fight Fire with Fire, BLOODLUST with BLOODLUST ?"
[XU:] "Of course ! It is dangerous... but do we have another chance ? The world drowns in Crimson Death and K'UR has already fallen to your Son's wrath ! Chaos takes over our Kingdom... STOP HIM, CROM !"
[CROM:] "RIGHT ! The Crimson-King shall be born again beneath the Dragonsky... I will grant him the Sword of the Dragonmasters and enable him to dream the Dreams of Enlightenment... Are you now satisfied ?"
[XU:] "I will be satisfied when your spawn is torn to pieces... FOREVER !!!")
[CROM:] "TOTH JA'ZUL NE'ZA TOTH RA !!!"
([XU:] "I have taken your sight, Witch, and now I am watching you die ! Whore of the Gods, Mistress of CROM, now finally Vengeance is mine !"
[THE WITCH:] "Your Rage in the end it will crush you, merciless and selfish XU ! My son is the Light and the Glory. Your Nemesis, your bane and your Doom !")
[Legends engraved in the Black Stone of A'RYTH-RA:]
"Forged in the Fires of the Eldritch (by the) Dragonmasters of K'UR
(Anointed by the) Elvenlord-Kings of the Black Witch (Unholy and sinful Mistress of Magicians and Gods !)
(Darksome) Treasures gleaming pale azure ! Dark Steel blessed by the Power of the Drune-Queen of XU"
[THE EMPEROR:]
"(Such an) Arcana granted (to me) in my Death-Dreams !
(I am engulfed in) Myriad Visions !
(I was born to wield the Moon-Blade of) Arcane Doom !"
(Spells are woven into the Celestial Sword !)
[Legends engraved in the Black Stone of A'RYTH-RA:]
"Fire and Magic ! Empowered by Moon-Force... (and the Spellcraft of the Witch-Circle !)
Envenomed by Death-Spells... (and the Curses of the Dreaming Dead !)
Only fools ignore (the Power of the True Gods) !"
"STORMHAMMER, Sword of the King !
STORMHAMMER, Wrath of Steel !
STORMHAMMER, tear and sever !
STORMHAMMER, reign forever !
STORMHAMMER ! STORMHAMMER !"
(At the Blood-Stone Altar of CROM, the Slaughtergod, the Sword is given to the King.)
"Entwined the Horrors of the Blind Witch. Wretched Guardian of the Blade.
Hammer of Red Death and Suffering ! Born to rule (and) to enslave !"
[THE EMPEROR:]
"A Millenium of slow Death I shall bestow upon the fool !
I am the Arch-Fiend of the Traitor... (The scourge of the demigod !)
Tyrant ! I am your Bane, your Fear, your Doom !"
("I kneel before the Altar. I speak the Ritual Words in the Tongue of the Elder Gods: TOTH JA'ZUL NE'ZA TOTH RA ! Now the sword is mine ! Eternally !")
2. The Oath of Blood (4:05)
[PART I OF THE 'TRILOGY OF BLOOD']

[XU:]
"Descending from the Heavens, cloaked in Armour shining bright
The grim foretold Messiah, wielder of the Power and Might
The Punisher, the Oath-sworn King, the breaker of the Spell
The one to crush the Tyranny and send him back to Hell !"
[THE EMPEROR:]
"I am the one, the Son of the Sun
Creator of Light where the Darkness prevails
Come True Ones, let Justice be done !
We'll banish the Darkness for he's bound to fail !"
("The Choir of the Chosen enshrouds me in Glory Immortal !")
[THE ARMY OF A'RYTH-RA:]
"HAIL ! HAIL ! HAIL ! HAIL ! HAIL ! HAIL !"
([THE EMPEROR:] "The Voice of the Goddess flows through me !")
[XU:]
"From now on call thee Emperor !
Scion of the Gods !
Gather the Chosen Ones there...
(Now swear) THE OATH OF BLOOD !
Lead them to Glory forever, Wielder of the Sword !"
[THE ARMY OF A'RYTH-RA:]
"(We're) Building a Kingdom of Metal
All sworn by THE OATH OF BLOOD !"
[THE EMPEROR:]
"Fight for your lives ! Be strong and survive !
The ending of Terror, his time is at hand
The Night will die and our Light will shine...
The coming of Judgement, the Tyranny's end..."
"SATE MY STEEL WITH BLOOD ! FEED THE SLAUGHTERGOD !"
"From now on call ME Emperor !
(I am the) Scion of the Gods !
(I've) Gathered the Chosen Ones here...
(We are bound - in Life and Death - by) THE OATH OF BLOOD !
I'll lead 'em to Glory forever ! (I am the) Wielder of the Sword !"
"(We're) Building a Kingdom of Metal
All sworn by THE OATH OF BLOOD !"
3. By the Wrath of the Unborn (3:47)
[THE EMPEROR:]

"I am born of Vengeance ! Torn from Hell again !
(I'll) Tear your Soul to pieces ! Nothing shall remain !
(Harken now, Black) King of Unbound Darkness ! I have come to kill !
(I am a) Scion of the Wargods of Metal and of Steel !"
"Darkest Lord of Deepest Hell ! Spawn of Immolation...
I am Hate incarnate ! Destruction for Destruction !!!"
"DIE ! DIE BY THE WRATH OF THE UNBORN !
DIE ! DIE BY THE WRATH OF THE UNBORN !
DIE BY THE WRATH OF THE UNBORN !
DIE ! DIE BY THE WRATH OF THE UNBORN !"
([CROM:] "Spare this my Palace of Worship, dare not to lay waste A'RYTH-RA !!! For this time you'll not be forgiven, remember I AM DEATH AND WAR !!!"
[THE TYRANT KING:] "Oh Father, you try to intimidate me ? There's no respect left in my soul... I have grown so much stronger than you've ever expected... I WILL TAKE OVER YOUR THRONE !!!")
[THE WITCH:]
"Born a Child of Hatred... Son of Wrath Divine...
Blessed by Dark Power and by Spells malign !"
[XU:]
"I unchain the Dark Lord ! Massacre and Plague...
God of Death and Slaughter... I summon thee... AWAKE !!!"
[THE EMPEROR:]
"Die a slow Death ! Die tonight ! (The) Flames of Torture I'll ignite !
I am Death ! I am Pain ! (I'll) Drive your fucking soul insane !!!"
4. Blood on my Steel (5:06)
[PART II OF THE 'TRILOGY OF BLOOD']

(The newborn Crimson King tangled in the Fangs of the most hideous Nightmare)
([THE EMPEROR:] "A Vision is calling me ! Revealing the most sinister Dream within a Dream ! I love her since the Days of the Rising of the Three Suns, since the Birth of the Stars. She is my predestined Queen, my Priestess and Goddess. The sight is breathtaking !")
"Red Fire... Shroud of Mist... Visions of Virgin Grace... (tears are streaming from her angelic Countenance !)
My Dark Queen, force-taken (her Lips utter my Name !)... His foul breath on her Face !"
"Every fibre of my Heart is screaming... (Release her and taste my Blade !)
Stop the torture of a sad soul dreaming... (I am the helpless watcher in this sadistic game !)
...And it's tearing me apart !!! (I shall rape and desecrate your Spirit forever !)
Every fibre of my (now frost-bitter) Heart is bleeding !"
"I see her... I feel her ! Enraged in mad Despair ! (This shall never be forgiven !!!)
I'll find you ! I'll kill you ! To thee Revenge I swear !"
(The holy Blood-Oath of the now insane God-King:)
"You will die (a slow, tormenting, everlasting Death) !
BLOOD ON MY STEEL !
This night I'll enjoy your screams... (over and over again...)
In the Rage of Battle I shall kill (I shall revel in the righteous Pleasure and grim Satisfaction of your Agony !)
With BLOOD ON MY STEEL !"
"You want me, leave her be ! I'm here so fight face to face ! (COWARD ! BASTARD ! LIAR !)
I challenge thee ! Come wicked King ! Come dare to meet your Disgrace !"
"BLOOD ON MY STEEL !
BLOOD ON MY STEEL !
BLOOD ON MY STEEL !
BLOOD ON MY STEEL !"
("Then the Vision mercifully fades and leaves me broken and bleeding... and crying... thirsting for Revenge !")
5. Metal is War (3:05)
[THE ARMY OF A'RYTH-RA:]

"Marching 'neath the Banner of the Bloodstained Sword
Warriors of the Oath unleash the Crimson Storm !
Disciples of the Horned God fear the Final War !
We (have) come to crush and desecrate, Metal is the Law !"
"Metal is the Law
METAL IS WAR !"
([THE EMPEROR:]
"My Blood be thine Force as my Flesh serve thine Will !
I who grant thee this life urge thee, grant me the kill !
This Oath it is sealed by Honour, Magic and Blood !
I swear not to fail but myself become God !!!")
[THE ARMY OF A'RYTH-RA:]
"We've come to seal your fate, we've come with killing Hate
To crush and desecrate, METAL IS WAR !"
([THE EMPEROR:] "What a splendid sight it is to see those Legions march ! How hungry they are for the Bloodshed !")
[THE ORACLE OF A'RYTH-RA:]
"Follow him, the One, the Light where Darkness falls...
And sing the Songs of Battle where the Slaughter calls !
Hail the Sacred Conqueror, sworn to bring demise...
And when the Fog of Battle clears a new Kingdom will rise !"
[THE ARMY OF A'RYTH-RA:]
"Beneath the Dragonsky, our Banner's flying high !
FACE US AND YOU'LL DIE !!!"
"YOU SHALL DIE !!!"
[THE EMPEROR:]
"I am in Command to soak the Killing Field with Blood
(I am the) High-King of my Warriors, the Dragonslayer-Lord
My Armour shining Steel, I wear the Sceptre, Sword and Ring
I am the Saviour prophesized and I reign supreme !"

[The following events are pictured in CHAPTER VII 'DETHRONE THE TYRANT KING' on SACRED STEEL's second Onslaught of Metallic Rage "WARGODS OF METAL"]
6. Sacred Warriors of Steel (5:12)
([XU:] "You must wield the Powers of the Sacred Stones ! Do not falter, True King ! Yours is the Force and the Knowledge of the True Gods ! Summon the Wraith-Legions from the Lands of the Dead ! Brave comrades of Battles fought long before the Fall of Cultures even the oldest Legends tell. The Demon-Lord has already carried through the Rites of Resurrection ! The Dead must join the living ! You must take heed the Prophecy ! Now, wield the Crystals and set their Spirits free to kill again !")
([THE EMPEROR:] "And the Phantasmagoria becomes reality !... I see the bridge... I hear the hooves of Metal sound... My Fathers and Forefathers have returned to join me in my Quest for the Traitor. The Hunt is on !")
[Memories of the Wraith-Lord-General:]
[THE WRAITH-LORD:]
"Across the bridge we came from Times beyond
Communion of the Sword of Blood
The Elders watch and guide us 'til the Battle's won
Destruction of the Enemy of CROM !
The Time has come for us to meet our Destiny...
And proudly our Banner is unfurled !
Son of the Sun, lead us to carnage Victory !
Let Blood run red in streams through this Battleworld !"
[THE ARMY OF A'RYTH-RA:]
"We fear not Death nor Witchery !
([THE EMPEROR:] "BUT WHAT IS THE PRICE, MOTHER ?")
Strong is our Belief !
([XU:] "DEATH ! ENLIGHTENMENT ! AND THE METAL THRONE !!!")
Inscribe our Tale in Legendry !
IT'S TIME TO KILL THE BEAST !!!"
(And the Wargods themselves rejoice at the sight of the Gathering !)
[THE EMPEROR:]
"WARRIORS ! (Wear your Spikes and Chains with Pride !)
Warriors of the Final Fight !
WARRIORS ! (Let Honesty and Truth prevail tonight !)
Soldiers of the Grace of Light !
WARRIORS ! (Where Steel and Blood in Death unite...)
Uprise and crush them on Fate's wheel !
WARRIORS ! (...there the Old Gods bless the Fight !)
RIDE SACRED WARRIORS OF STEEL !"
("What a Night of Splendour ! What a mighty Incantation !")
"Wraith-Legions rise, Black Lords of Death and Force Divine
I call thee forth from Hades by the Wicked Sign !
The Treasures gleam, (and as foretold in the Prophecy) I am the Warlord and the Seer !
Their rotten shapes take form and in the Fog they do appear !"
"Immortal souls of Warrior-Kings of Times long gone
Stand side by side with Brothers living, proud and strong !
Where Death has failed, Damnation's Claws of Hell await
We march as one for Victory. THE CARNAGE SHALL BE GREAT !!!"
(And the ELDER GODS watch the disregard of their Authority in disapproval ! Weaving Aeon-spanning Spells of Annihilation and Despair to crush the arrogant deities...)
7. Dark Forces Lead Me to the Brimstone Gate (3:47)
[A retrospect on the Dark Lord's ninth forbidden Journey]
([THE TYRANT KING:] "I look into myself to ask the Fates for answers but even the Voices of my Soul remain silent. Still sleeping I murmur the Ritual Words of the time-lost Invocation : ARA'SHA NIMU KO'SHA ! The third Dream-Gate opens and I fall onward through the Crystal Ball...")
(The apostate on the Voyage to the center of Cythraul)
"Weird Dreams, dark Visions, black Spells ensorcell me !
Sword tight (in my trembling hands), grim mission, come forth those Voices sing..."
[THE WITCH:]
"The Secrets once forbidden are gifts to be unveiled !
Beware (my son) ! For Hell's Damnation waits if you should ever fail !"
(The Sojourner is trapped in the Delirium of the Fall)
[THE TYRANT KING:]
"A royal Balefire (I see the Valkries taking my dead body to the Hall of Kings) !
A King's soul, haunted, doomed !
A Warrior's death pyre ! A mortal earthbound tomb"
"I follow to the Ancient Call, DARK FORCES !
I'm falling through the Crystal Ball, DARK FORCES !
I've come to face my Sacred Fate, DARK FORCES !
(I beg thee) DARK FORCES, lead me to the Brimstone Gate !!!"
"Death-Ring ! Black Magic ! Your Wielder I shall be !
Doom-Sword ! Dark Terror ! Your Steel my Victory !
Wrath-Sceptre ! Wand of Spells ! Sign of a God-King's Reign
I fear not Death nor Hell nor Fire !!! I shall not fail !!!"
("I enter to the Stygian Pyramids. Realm of the descendants of a race even older than the Old Gods themselves !")
"Shield blessed by Sorcery, anointed by her Spells
I'm drawn into the Black Abyss of fiery Hell !"
("I am reborn in Bloodshed to wreak Havoc, Death and Hate
Upon the lost souls doomed, where endless Pain awaits !")
"I call thee... DARK FORCES ! DARK FORCES ! (Priests of the Serpent-Race !)
DARK FORCES ! (Sorcerers of Time ! Disciples of the Worm !)
DARK FORCES ! DARK FORCES !
LEAD ME TO THE BRIMSTONE GATE !!!"
(Before the Council of the Serpent. The Dreamer stands alone, facing the Trial of the Elder Gods.)
[THE ELDER GODS:]
"Behold these Treasures ! We know your Soul is pure.
Take them and use them to rule this World once more !"
(The Neophyte on the way back to the second Dream-Gate)
[THE TYRANT KING:]
"Thus spake the Elders !
The Gods of Metal, Steel and Iron and Glory
(I am) Reborn to reign as King !"
"DARK FORCES LEAD ME TO THE BRIMSTONE GATE !
DARK FORCES LEAD ME THROUGH THE BRIMSTONE GATE !!!"
("Passing the third gate, I return to the crimson world.")
"...And to a world of Slaughter I awake !"
8. Master of Thy Fate (6:15)
[Soliloquy of the abandoned Demon-God:]
[THE TYRANT KING:]
"I am the thorn in your side ! Your fault, your Flesh Divine...
All that you blame on me is what you made me to be !
In your eyes I've grown much too strong... Have I not been your Chosen One ?
(Cursed) Dark Gods CROM and XU ! You deny me... I defy you !!!"
"You deny me... I defy you !
You deny me... I DEFY YOU !!!"
([THE WITCH:] "Fret ye not, beloved Son... your time is at hand !")
[THE TYRANT KING:]
"I have fallen from Grace. You left me behind (and) spat in my face !
(I've suffered your impertinent) Endless, malicious Attack. Believe me, I'm tired to always fight back...
...So many soldiers I've slain... I had to kill them again and again !!!
I am embittered and sad... may 'STORMHAMMER' lay me forever to rest !"
"This is the end... the end you've planned ?
This is my way... TO YOUR DECAY !!!"
([THE WITCH:] "Whatever they dare to confront thee with ! In the end you will reign supreme !")
[THE TYRANT KING:]
"Now (you) revel in Victory ! (Now that) You got rid of me ! ...
(You've) Crushed me with your Hate ! I am the Master of my Fate !
(I was the) Beast of War ! Your King of gore !
My Soul you have betrayed ! (Nevertheless) I am the Master of thy Fate !!!"
"(With) My backs to the wall. I face the end, proud, standing tall !
(I was) Never a sheep in your flock ! I am my Master, (my) King and my God !
Forever fool and enslave all those who hail you, sing and give praise...
(You) Can't stand my Courage and Course... I broke your Rules ! Yes !!! I broke your Laws !!!"
[THE WITCH:]
"(You are the) Master of thy Fate... Master...
Master of thy Fate... Master...
Master of thy Fate... Master...
Master of thy Fate... Master..."
([THE TYRANT KING:] "Come and take me to the Bowels of Cythraul, Ceridwen, mother in Death...")
9. Lust For Blood (3:53)
[PART III OF THE 'TRILOGY OF BLOOD']

([THE EMPEROR:] "The world still lies peaceful, not aware of the unparalleled Slaughter that soon will take place and stain this ground bloodred. Now, by the first light of the Mothersun our Legion is marching 'neath the Banner of the Bloodstained Sword to finally meet the armies of the Tyrant King upon the field of War. Ahead of the Traitor's army I see their Chief-Shaman wielding the severed head of my beloved Queen... mad BLOODLUST takes over my each and every nerve ! Ferocious I plunge headlong into the charge !... SLAUGHTER !!!")
(In the midst of the fray. On the day of the Final Bloodshed)
"All I see a world of red, of Blood before my eyes !
One more thrust, one more blow decides who's doomed to die !
Axes grinding through their rows, black Swords kiss their flesh...
Their Shield-Wall breaks and we rush forward into the next Attack."
(And the Blood of slain foes falls like rain from the Skies !)
"More heads crushed to gore ! (To avenge the Fall of mighty K'UR !)
More Souls ripped and torn ! (My Hate Divine shall crush the Heathen Spawn !)
Dismembered, hacked to shreds !
I won't stop 'til you're dead !!!"
[The War-Song of the Raving Warlord:]
"LUST FOR BLOOD !
Anger turned to Hate to Power ! (I thrive on the Blood-Bath !)
LUST FOR BLOOD !
(Your) Hearts and Souls I shall devour ! (A sacrificial offering to the Gods !)
LUST FOR BLOOD !
(I) Face the Fate the Black Gods have wrought (I AM HAVOC AND DESTRUCTION !!!!)
LUST FOR BLOOD !
In Battlerage and BLOODLUST I am God !"
("I hack my way through the gore to find the Demon-Lord !")
"Entrails pouring through his hands, he can't believe his eyes (I gouge 'em out with joy !)
No time for Mercy, slow his Death, in Agony he cries...
I'm high on Blood ! I'm fighting hard, my trail a Way of Wrath
My Warriors scream the old Warcry... IT'S VICTORY OR DEATH !"
("Knee-deep in the guts of the castrated Usurper I laugh and scream !")
"I AM GOD ! I AM GOD !"
10. Throne of Metal (4:17)
([THE EMPEROR:] "With a grin I remember 'STORMHAMMER' cutting through the body of the Tyrant like a knife tearing through linen ! His Death has not been glorious... I have skinned and maimed then decapitated the cursed corpse. Finally I have relieved myself on the mangled pile of remains to even more humiliate the now dead King ! But... in the end... I HAVE BEEN DECEIVED !!! CROM and XU have vanished, forgotten by the Race of Man, unworshipped and banished... and the ELDER GODS have chosen the TYRANT KING to reign as their master in the dark halls of Cythraul... not Glory, but Shame... impale me, Sword of the Gods...")
([THE TYRANT KING:] "I close my eyes to leave this world of carnage... it is time to return to the Hall of Kings...")
(The Journey's at an end. The Dreaming Dead Soul awakens)
"The Hall of the Kings greet the Celestial Spawn...
The fortress of Moon-Power (is) shrouded in Light's golden dawn
A soul of light rising... I gain the dark seat of True Force
In Glory enthroned... (I am) the Successor of THE ELDER GODS !"
"I am dreaming eternal...
In Death I am finally home
I am the Watcher Infernal on the Metal Throne !"
("In my Mind THE ELDER GODS speak... !")
[THE ELDER GODS:]
"LIGHT AND GLORY...
THE GODS OF THE EARTH ARE REBORN !
CELESTIAL SPAWN, THY KINGDOM HAS COME !
REIGN FROM THE THRONE OF METAL !"
[THE WITCH:]
"Come to me Son of the Sun, Heathen Bane of dark XU !
The Light and the Glory of Cythraul is shining through you !"
[THE TYRANT KING:]
"Oh DARK FORCES hear me proclaiming my predestined reign !
As all things repeat I have risen to Power again !"
([THE ORACLE OF A'RYTH-RA:] "A Sword carving bone, a Spell breaking stone, a God's Death to mourn, a new God is born ! HE shall forever reign from the Throne !!!")
[THE TYRANT KING:]
"(And the Souls of the fallen are an easy) Prey for my soul...
PREY FOR MY SOUL !
PREY FOR MY SOUL !
PREY FOR MY SOUL !"
"I summon thee forth from the abysmal pits of the Damned ! (You, that I loved long before the Birth of A'RYTH-RA and doomed K'UR !)
Beloved Enchantress of Heaven, dark Witch-Queen of hell !"
"...so pale she is rising... her Spirit is one with my Soul...
Together in Death, bound by Iron and Metal. Forever now, WE TAKE THE THRONE !!!"
("NOW, I AM THE DARK LORD OF CYTHRAUL !!! IMMORTAL !!! UNDEAD !!!")
