Hymns of Blood and Thunder Lyrics

(9)
Submitted by level Sathanas
1. Chaos Calling (5:31)
Animal or god, which am I?
Scream forever eternal cry
Bathe in the fury from ages unknown
Suffer the blow that kisses the blow

Chaos, calling
Chaos, calling

Wounds weep
Weary souls fall on dead-end earth
Watch them crawl
Blood and thunder, a ring in the ear
The call of chaos, stronger than fear

Chaos, calling
Chaos, calling

Darkness, falling
Chaos, calling

Wounds weep
Weary souls fall on dead-end earth
I watch them crawl
The call of chaos, stronger than fear

This iron age has turned to rust
Hope fallen to ash and dust
The end of time is calling
Our world into darkness falling

Chaos, calling
Chaos, calling
Chaos, calling
Chaos, calling
2. Death Dealer (4:23)
Thunder
Shattering bone
Raging fury
Eyes as hard as stone
Power
A murderous rage
Bloodlust
A fire in his brain
Blood
Running dark
Thunder
The blow that finds the mark
Fearsome
His face unknown
The dealer
Of death has finally come
Death dealer
Lord of shadow
Lord of fear
Death dealer

Thunder
Shattering bone
Raging fury
Eyes as hard as stone
Fearsome
The dealer
Of death has finally come
Death dealer
Lord of shadow
Lord of fear
Death dealer
3. Beneath the Eyes of Mars (5:59)
From the time of the seven kings
Til the tyrants iron rule
Fate written with the stroke of steel
Broken spear in bloody pool
Roman will must be fulfilled
Drumbeat on a march to war
The slave collar for those not killed
Their hollow screams ring evermore

Beneath the eyes of mars
Red orb glaring down
Beneath the eyes of mars
Tribute: bloody ground
Eagles lead us to glory
Ever the victor writes the story

Gradiavus, blood drunk god
Lead your sons in endless war
Ultor, hands nailed to the senate door
Beneath the eye of mars
Brave deeds must be seen
Lest the victory stand incomplete
The blasphemy of swords kept clean

Beneath the eyes of mars
Red orb glaring down
Beneath the eyes of mars
Tribute: bloody ground
Eagles lead us to glory
Ever the victor writes the story

Fate written with the stroke of steel
As we march in endless war
Blood and thunder
In legend live forevermore
4. The Doom of Aceldama (8:36)
Better not to be born at all
Is what the prince said
A faded rainbow falls
My guts burst as I hang
For 30 shackles
I became the bastard one
On the horizon
The beast stands tall

Without my damnation
The tempter would have won
But I bore this curse
To be forever his
The angels cried
With a kiss he smiled
On the field of blood
Belial knelt down

Forever I'll dwell in the field of fire
Forever I'll dwell in this land of doom
Whatever the price
I'll pay it all
Dark is the abyss
Lonely this doom

Oh why
Why father
Why am I
The one of all sin
My name is cursed forever
Oh why
Why father
Why am I the bastard one
When can I be forgiven?
5. Age of Sorrow (2:50)
6. The Bringer of War (4:44)
A rage forged in wrathful fires
Flame plagued skies: funeral pyres
The heavy hand to silence liars
The wolf is off the chain
Suffer no guilt no crippling fears
Their blood will wash the pain of years
Still the voices one does hear
Deep inside the brain

On vultures wings now ride
Deaths black doves stalk the sky
On the wind the carrion cry
Fly forever; never to die
Magic are the beams they ride
Through the eons death on high
Lost souls ere beg, why
Doomed forever they cannot die
Let slip the dogs of war
Boundless hunger they cannot ignore
Jaws flecked with gore
Wrack your very core
Hunger evermore
Fear the bringer of war
7. Descent Into Madness (10:45)
We will plunge into this dark city
Fallen masonry all around
Gave upon the statues of the Old Ones
What we men of science have found
On the eve of dawn at the end of the world
Where souls are cold and should never fly
We witnessed the one true unholy terror
The city of the damned reached forever high
Beneath the world, blood cold ice
On pale white earth, descent into madness
The darkness set beyond the horizon
Pillars that reached straight to hell
We saw pure evil in this pre-human age
By alchemy, blood and thunder we fell
What lays beyond, blood and ice
Blasphemous city, descent into madness
Descent, descent, descent into madness
Descent, descent, descent into madness
At the mountains of madness, you will descend into hell
At the mountains of madness, you will forever dwell
8. Iron Hammer (3:48)
Bastards will pay
The four horsemen ride
Screaming for vengeance
Run for your life
Over the mountain
Into the void
Gods of wraths (howling)
Built to destroy
Learning to die
Die by the sword
Flash of the blade
The onslaught of the hordes
Gods of wrath (howling)
For power and might
Demon king, riding on through the night
9. The Mist in the Mourning (2:22)
How sorry the man with no home of his own
Limping forever, sorry and stoned
Clotted up blood that hangs on the bone
And a withered dead voice that ever does moan

So sorry he cannot see his friends here today
So sorry he is gone along his way
Go down to the church, maybe you will pray
And send him some love to speed him away

How dark is it now
How lonely the day
And none can know
The that has been paid
Grim is the voice that calls you to die
He knows no one will be there to cry
Alone on his way, gone down to die
With a sad, sad soul, I have to ask why
But my soul is worried and my heart can't rest
I have too many roads and too many rests
I will see you on that cold lonely shore
And that day we will mourn, never no more
10. Blood and Thunder (4:34)
Blood and thunder
The call of death
One step closer
Final breath
Going under
Down you are laid
Torn asunder
Debts are paid
Blood and thunder
Tears you cry
Heart eternal
Goes down to die
Hammer has fallen
Down you go
Blood and thunder
Fatal blow
Blood and thunder
Final strike
Final warning
Head on spike
Force unbroken
Your strength fails
Driven backwards
Coffin nails
