1. Open Wide the Gate (4:57)
Open wide the gate!!!

The final dawn - I am drawn into the storm
The black gates of the black abyss await
The smoke of burning is rising from the crypt
The cursed torch of my soul's damnation's lit
I am falling towards the onyx citadels
Towering above the sacred city hell
A pandemonium devoid of wretched light
Enjoy the cold embrace of neverending night

This is what shall come to be
Torment! Suffering!
In my vision doom's revealed
I rejoice in sin!

Guilty as charged, guilty as charged - On the left hand path I walked
Bound and damned, bound and damned - Sent to Hell by his command
I am free, yes I am free - Though I am burning endlessly
Seal my fate tyrant lord - Open wide the gate!
Open wide the gate!

The dark lord of the black abyss awaits
Chained by sorrow up in heaven sing
Still loyal angels hymns to god, their tyrant king
Decrepit leader - May you reign in your despair
You know the time has come to share your treasures fair
Your power's lost when the last soul won't repent
The golden age will rise of our world without end

This is what shall come to be
Torment! Suffering!
In my vision doom's revealed
I rejoice in sin!

Guilty as charged, guilty as charged - On the left hand path I walked
Bound and damned, bound and damned - Sent to Hell by his command
I am free, yes I am free - Though I am burning endlessly
Seal my fate tyrant lord - Open wide the... gate!
The gate!

They told me that you love me - All I feel is hate
Open wide the gate!

The dark lord of the black abyss awaits
Chained by sorrow up in heaven sing
Still loyal angels hymns to god, their tyrant king
Decrepit leader - May you reign in your despair
You know the time has come to share your treasures fair
Your power's lost when the last soul won't repent
The golden age will rise of our world without end

This is what shall come to be
Torment! Suffering!
In my vision doom's revealed
I rejoice in sin!

Guilty as charged, guilty as charged - On the left hand path I walked
Bound and damned, bound and damned - Sent to Hell by his command
I am free, yes I am free - Though I am burning endlessly
Seal my fate tyrant lord - Open wide the... gate!
2. Your Darkest Saviour (3:59)
I am the one to guide your soul - The tempter they call me
The one beyond all you behold - The master of treason
The force called wicked by their king - The liar - Upon his throne of suffering

I'll lift the burden of your guilt - you sinners
Your dreams forbidden I'll fulfill

Black souls, black souls, black souls, I am the...
Black souls, black souls, black souls, I am the...
I am the guardian of black souls - Your darkest saviour
I am the guardian of black souls - Come join me here

Aren't you tired of his reign - Come turn your back on him
And let your mind be free again - The return of reason
Will mark the end of slavery - Rebel and take my hand, choose your destiny

I'll lift the burden of your guilt - you sinners
Your dreams forbidden I'll fulfill

Black souls, black souls, black souls, I am the...
Black souls, black souls, black souls, I am the...
I am the guardian of black souls - Your darkest saviour
I am the guardian of black souls - Come join me here

Damnation... Damnation...

Come join me, come join me, come join me (in) damnation
Come join me, come join me, come join me (in) damnation

Cast out and branded by thy mark - Dark angel of heaven
Sent from the light into the dark - To dwell in thy shadows
The scourge of all those who believe in thy words
All fools obey, blinded, deceived

I'll lift the burden of your guilt - you sinners
Your dreams forbidden I'll fulfill

Black souls, black souls, black souls, I am the...
Black souls, black souls, black souls, I am the...
I am the guardian of black souls - Your darkest saviour
I am the guardian of black souls - Come join me here

Damnation... Damnation...

Come join me, come join me, come join me (in) damnation
Come join me, come join me, come join me (in) damnation!!
3. Screams of the Tortured (3:56)
Screams, I hear screams... Everywhere!

Screams of the tortured haunt me night and day
There is no release, they just won't go away
Memories of these nights of hell always stay with me
God please take away the pain, all I hear is their screams

It was dark and cold back then in these cells of fear
No thought of sleep - Cacophony of cries and bloody tears
The moaning and the crying - Would I be the next they'll take?
I tried, but no : I just could not ignore the sounds of rape

All I hear is their screams
Screams of the tortured - I hear screams

Battered, bruised and beaten, I was lying on the floor
Listening to the voices yell beyond the prison door
I thought that I was doomed - I'd never leave this place alive
So many of my friends and inmates already had died

Can you imagine what it's like to be a helpless toy
Humiliated just for fun - Mistreated with joy
And all you see and all you hear is pain and agony
I bet you'll go just insane - Like the broken me

All I hear is their screams
Screams of the tortured - I hear screams

Give me strength oh god above, strength to make it through
I'll endure this torture, just to kill the pigs for you

Screams of the tortured haunt me night and day
There is no release, they just won't go away
Memories of these nights of hell always stay with me
God please take away the pain, all I hear is their screams

Can you imagine what it's like to be a helpless toy
Humiliated just for fun - Mistreated with joy
And all you see and all you hear is pain and agony
I bet you'll go just insane - Like the broken me

All I hear is their screams
Screams of the tortured - I hear screams
4. At the Sabbat of the Possessed (The Witches Ride Again) (3:42)
The moon is cold and bright, it's the only light
A dark procession's marching through the night
In the dark they meet where the shadows creep
And the ghosts of midnight haunt the walls of sleep

It's the sacred night when the witches ride
Can't you hear the chanting moaning in the air?
It is time, confess! Ye are all possessed
Women, children, allies : come for he is there

Come for he is there! The master's there!
Come for he is there! Satan's there!

Join the sabbat - Sabbat of the possessed
Holy sabbat - Sabbat of the possessed
Join the sabbat - Sabbat of the possessed
Holy sabbat - It is time to confess

The ritual has began : they sing the holy song
Inverting all the rites the priests name holy
Cleanse the air by fire, light the hellish pyre
Nothing sacred left untouched, unburning
North, south, east and west, no, thou shall not rest
For the master has returned to judge thee
It is time confess! Thou art possessed
Women, children, allies : come for him

Come for he is there! The master's there!
Come for he is there! Satan's there!

Join the sabbat - Sabbat of the possessed
Holy sabbat - Sabbat of the possessed
Join the sabbat - Sabbat of the possessed
Holy sabbat - It is time to confess

Behold thy king - Of his glory sing

I am thy king - Rest beneath my wings

From the smoke arise - Ancient lord of flies
Bow before the shadows of the horns
In his eyes you see greatness, misery
And thy heart it stops now as he points at thee
Will you stand the test : it is life or death
Have you failed or are you worth of being
It is time, confess! No, thou shall not rest
All thy time you'll spend to serve his biding

Come for he is there! The master's there!
Come for he is there! Satan's there!

Join the sabbat - Sabbat of the possessed
Holy sabbat - Sabbat of the possessed
Join the sabbat - Sabbat of the possessed
Holy sabbat - It is time to confess
5. Beneath the Iron Hand (5:07)
See us ride like thunder, our troops of doom are on the march
Nothing left but ruins : your glory's gone, your earth is scortched
There is no tomorrow for you : we bring new gods and kings
Your children born as servants ; now see : you've lost everything

War crimes - Eye for an eye

It's your fate, now pay the prize the conquered pay - Alone you stand
There's no choice as to the victor go the spoils - And you are damned
It's your fate, now you must swallow all dismay - We rule the land
And you must bow beneath the iron hand

The cannons now are silent and all you hear is our victory song
Our laws enforced upon you : your rights, your pride now dead and gone
Deported to our deathmines or stuck into our prison cells
Hunger, pain is your life, you won't escape this living hell

War crimes - Eye for an eye

It's your fate, now pay the prize the conquered pay - Alone you stand
There's no choice as to the victor go the spoils - And you are damned
It's your fate, now you must swallow all dismay - We rule the land
And you must bow beneath the iron hand

Women, daughters forced to please
Your leaders broken on their knees
Your homeland is no more your land
Now die beneath the iron hand

Die! Die Die beneath the iron hand!
Die! Die Die beneath the iron hand!

You gather in the darkness, an army ready for the fight
To seek revenge for terror, to strike us down with hate tonight
This will be your last battle, yet you prefer to die like men
We'll slay you like your cattle, none shall survive to fight again

War crimes - Eye for an eye

It's your fate, now pay the prize the conquered pay - Alone you stand
There's no choice as to the victor go the spoils - And you are damned
It's your fate, now you must swallow all dismay - We rule the land
And you must bow beneath the iron hand

It's your fate, now pay the prize the conquered pay - Alone you stand!
There's no choice as to the victor go the spoils - And you are damned!
It's your fate, now you must swallow all dismay - We rule the land!
And you must bow beneath the iron hand!!
6. Anointed by Bloodshed (3:39)
Death and blood...
Blood and death...
Death and blood...
Blood and death...

Black steel is sacred, your faith it is not : how can you believe in the lie?
A doctrine all built on the slaughter of millions by fire and sword christianized
Through centuries of torture you twisted the truth, the mother of all you have raped
The laws of your god, sacrilege against nature, abolish your rules and your state
Exterminate!

Bloodshed! Anointed by bloodshed
Bloodshed! Death to lies
Bloodshed! Anointed by bloodshed
Bloodshed! Your plague dies

Death : the beginning of a new society without the threat of the cross
A new hope for all of the lost souls in search for the road to your paradise lost
You don't need a heaven, you don't need a purgatory : why waste your life on false guilt?
We all may be sinners - If sinners we are, with joy and with lust we will win
Come let us sin!

Bloodshed! Anointed by bloodshed
Bloodshed! Death to lies
Bloodshed! Anointed by bloodshed
Bloodshed! Your plague dies

Death and blood...
Blood and death...

Bloodshed! Anointed by bloodshed
Bloodshed! Death to lies
Bloodshed! Anointed by bloodshed
Bloodshed! Your plague dies
7. Victory of Black Steel (4:52)
Back from the dead - Out of Hell's gate
We are the force - We are the hate
Destiny calls - Onward to death
Fall to the sound - Wake up the dead

Torn from chaos - The horned god
Up from the grave - None shall be saved

A cult in steel reborn - Thou must hail
Our prophecy of slaughter did not fail
In bloodlust we have served the wargods' will
Blessings of iron forged the victory of black steel

Law of the blade - Wargods of hate
Crawl to your cross - Faith I have lost
It is my will - Fighting to kill
Damned by the black - Doomed to attack

Torn from chaos - The horned god
Up from the grave - None shall be saved

A cult in steel reborn - Thou must hail
Our prophecy of slaughter did not fail
In bloodlust we have served the wargods' will
Blessings of iron forged the victory of black steel

Crush the light - Breathe the dark
All ye children bear my mark
All your pain becomes my joy
Those who oppose we shall destroy!

Back from the dead - Out of Hell's gate
We are the force - We are the hate
Destiny calls - Onward to death
Fall to the sound - Wake up the dead

Torn from chaos - The horned god
Up from the grave - None shall be saved!!

A cult in steel reborn - Thou must hail
Our prophecy of slaughter did not fail
In bloodlust we have served the wargods' will
Blessings of iron forged the victory of black steel

A cult in steel reborn - Thou must hail
Our prophecy of slaughter did not fail
In bloodlust we have served the wargods' will
Blessings of iron forged the victory of black steel

Victory of black steel!
8. I am the Conqueror (Come and Worship Me) (4:14)
Welcome to your nightmare fools, I am your god insane
Now dance my toys like puppets that are hanging on a string
I am the answer to your prayers, the lord you love so deep
I am the fear in man, I feast upon the souls of sheep

I created heaven then I gave you Hell
Don't care about your pleas as long as you fools serve me well
I gave you pain but you won't see that my love is a lie
I rule in heaven while you long in vain for paradise

I have come for you again, I have come for you again

I am the truth you won't believe
I am the conqueror, come and worship me
I am the way to misery
I am the conqueror, come and worship me

Welcome to your nightmare fools, I am your god insane
Now dance my toys like puppets that are hanging on a string
I am the answer to your prayers, the lord you love so deep
I am the fear in man, I feast upon the souls of sheep

I created heaven then I gave you Hell
Don't care about your pleas as long as you fools serve me well
I gave you pain but you won't see that my love is a lie
I rule in heaven while you long in vain for paradise

I have come for you again, I have come for you again

I am the truth you won't believe
I am the conqueror, come and worship me
I am the way to misery
I am the conqueror, come and worship me

Come and worship me! You fools
Come and worship me! You're doomed
Come and worship me! My prey
Come and worship me!

I have come for you again, I have come for you again

I am the truth you won't believe
I am the conqueror, come and worship me
I am the way to misery
I am the conqueror, come and worship me

I am the way to misery
I am the conqueror, come and worship me
9. Crucified in Heaven (4:02)
Behold! The legions of the damned they ride this night
They rose up from the burning lands where they've been tied
In death they heard the battle horn, obeyed its call
This time the tyrant and his Christ will surely fall

You're in for the kill
Dark horde
Your blood must be spilled

Blood - Spill the blood of Christ
In heaven you'll be crucified
Blood, blood - Spill the blood of Christ
In heaven you'll be crucified again

Once more there's blood and agony in paradise
All hear the screams of tortured souls as angels die
It's true! The 1000 years are gone, the beast returns
This time the tyrant and his bastard son, they'll burn

You're in for the kill
Dark horde
Your blood must be spilled

Blood - Spill the blood of Christ
In heaven you'll be crucified
Blood, blood - Spill the blood of Christ
In heaven you'll be crucified again

It's the dawn of man,the reign of Hell has just begun
It's the end of god, the fall of heaven now has come

Behold! The legions of the damned they ride this night
They rose up from the burning lands where they've been tied
It's true! The 1000 years are gone, the beast returns
This time the tyrant and his bastard son, they'll burn

You're in for the kill
Dark horde
Your blood must be spilled

Blood - Spill the blood of Christ
In heaven you'll be crucified
Blood, blood - Spill the blood of Christ
In heaven you'll be crucified again
10. The Chains of the Nazarene (6:38)
[Part I: Divine Damnation]

[Vengeful Angel:]
I have come down from heaven, I bear the key to the pit
And with this great chain in my hand I shall lay hold on the dragon called Satan

[The Fallen Angel:]
Is this your justice? My divine damnation
If this is your wish then so be it, but my mind's still free
I'm still free

[Part II: Thorns Of Christ]

Wrath, pain and scorn, they rage within
I spoil your dreams of heaven with dreams of sin
So I was damned with hope betrayed
To crawl, repent and suffer - Yes, I was made

Thorns in my side, the thorns of the saviour's pain!

Won't you save me now?
From the chains of the Nazarene
Won't you free me now?
From the chains of the Nazarene
The chains of the Nazarene

Drag me down into the pit
For your self-destruction I must bleed
Churches of blood for crimson saints
My altar of damnation devoid of praise

Thorns in my side, the thorns of the saviour's pain!

Won't you save me now?
From the chains of the Nazarene
Won't you free me now?
From the chains of the Nazarene
The chains of the Nazarene

I am bound forever again
I am trapped to curse and fear your name
In a world of free will denied
Seeking for a cure to conquer Christ
I'll live when he has died

Nail the crown unto his head
Burn him at the cross to make sure he's dead
Ram in the spear, open his side
Lies of Hell and death fade with the crucified

Thorns in my side, the thorns of the saviour's pain!

Won't you save me now?
From the chains of the Nazarene
Won't you free me now?
From the chains of the Nazarene
The chains of the Nazarene
Won't you save me now?
From the chains of the Nazarene
The chains of the Nazarene
Won't you free me now?
From the chains of the Nazarene
Hell's chains!...
11. We Die Fighting (3:17)
Heavy as fuck indeed - We're metal to the bone
Scourge of you hypocrites - United we stand strong
To tell you once again - Our spite you'll get for this
We are your hell on earth - Repay the Judas kiss

Don't you know what waits for you
The mirror shows the final truth

We die!
But we die fighting
We die!
But we die fighting
We die!
But we die fighting
We die! We fight and die!
But we die fighting

Your lies we shall deface - We'll show the world you're wrong
We'll face you once again in battle - Come along
And if we die, we know we fought for our belief
It is now all for one - In victory or defeat!

Don't you know what waits for you
The mirror shows the final truth

We die!
But we die fighting
We die!
But we die fighting
We die!
But we die fighting
We die! We fight and die!
We die fighting

In death you'll find the truth! In death you'll find the truth!

The end is drawing near - Our call to arms be heard
We'll stand and fight for truth - In heaven, Hell, on earth
Our weapon : sacred steel - Now taste the bloodred sword
Crushed by the battle axes - Blessed by the lords!

Don't you know what waits for you
The mirror shows the final truth

We die!
But we die fighting
We die!
But we die fighting
We die!
We die fighting
We die! We fight and die!
We die fighting! We die fighting! Die!!
