1. Prepare for Domination
Gather the tribe, sharpen your blade, raise your fist
Gore-stained axe cry out for blood
Sever the trees, feed the flames, smelt the ore,
Forging weapons for brutal war

Whipping the slaves, flogging the grunts,
Get them in line, send them to die
No use for prayer, only for war
Your life's a lie

March through the waste, burn through the fields
Batter the walls, giants shall fall
Bringers of pain, merchants of death
Blood flows for

Gold!
Take what I want
Kill!
Greed is our god
Spite!
For all giants fall
Die!
Too late to kneel

Whipping the slaves, flogging the grunts,
Get them in line, send them to die
No use for prayer, only for war
Your life's a lie

March through the waste, burn through the fields
Batter the walls, giants shall fall
Bringers of pain, merchants of death
Blood changed for gold

Paid for the kill
Storming the walls
Conquer, destroy
The kingdom shall fall

No one is spared
The deal is off

We hate your kind
Stupid and blind
Death shall be your receipt
We repay cowards in kind

Whipping, flogging
Get them in line
Send them to die
Marching, killing
Never ask why
You're next to die

Marching, flogging
Get them in line
Send them to die
The dying, the screaming
With the blood spilled for gold
Glory bel fill our souls

Storming the walls
Kingdom shall fall

Still the war machine rolls on
And the wheel of pain keeps on turning (x3)

Still the war machine rolls on
And the wheel of pain just keeps turning

Death you can't deceive (x7)
Death will your soul reap

Whipping the slaves, flogging the grunts,
Get them in line, send them to die
No use for prayer, only for war
Your life's a lie

March through the waste, burn through the fields
Batter the walls, giants shall fall
Bringers of pain, merchants of death
Blood flows for

Gold!
Spoils of war
Kill!
And take more
War!
Harvest of blood

Domination has come
2. When the Hills Run Red
Savagery storms the hill, tidal wave of hate
Biting axe, blooded steel thirsty
Laid to waste

By tusk and claw, we will take the land
If you come across our path
We'll kill you where you stand

Vengeance is at hand
When the hills run red

Siege upon the giants' walls and bring forth the ram
We've been sent for the kill by King's command
With burning torch and by blade, no one shall be spared
Loved one's head placed on pikes, your entrails I shall wear

Thrash
Destroy
Set flame to the halls
Storm the gates

Scream, writhe in pain
Your mighty halls will burn
With sword and axe raised high
The earth your blood will stain
Our onslaught you cannot be spurn
Your death, our battle cry
You know your life's undone
We are born to kill, kill, kill, kill

We thrash
We destroy
We set flame
To the halls

Know your lands will burn
Your life is at an end
All you loved now lost (no, it's gone)
When the hills run
3. In the Keeper's Chamber
Foul, twisted
Degraded mind ensconced within degraded form
Horrid, menace
Inflicting pain for the sake of taking pleasure

Fear, torture
No rhyme or reason just a harvester of suffering
Orcs, humans
No creatures spared the ministrations of the keeper

Once noble titan
Devolving backward into depravity
Lost touch with chaos
Unleashed corruption, sowing idiotic creed

So now face the warrior
Taste the blades of retribution
Instinct directive
Destroy the horror in the keeper’s chamber

Breaking wills finger by finger
Pulling tusks with iron pincers
Branding flesh with burning coals
Whips and chains against once proud foes

Tribes-kin hanging from the walls
Tortured screams heard in the halls
Imbicilic giant gloating
Strike him down to quell our loathing

Mutant, coward
No fighter here, just a spineless aberration
Echo, mirror
Soul’s black reflection back at me

Must face the madness
Confront the nightmare, of our devolving breed
Declared war on nature
Became imprisoned by false mortality

So now face warriors
Taste the blades of retribution
Instinct, directive
Destroy the horror in the keeper’s chamber

Kin hanging. Kin dying.
Fin crying. Kin falling.
The Gore-stained axe tribe will take no more
Kin rising. Kin fighting. Kin winning. Kin chanting.
Gogog, Leader, release you all.
4. Of Broken Chains and Shattered Skulls
Rise up, break free
Take your chains in your hands
Rise up, follow me
Shattered skulls of the Tyrant Kings

All rise now, and break free
Take those chains in your hands
All rise up!
Come and follow me
Shattered skulls of the Tyrant Kings

Shadows on the wall
World which you see, illusion
Out beyond the cave
So much more to see
Wide open

Gave up your life
Gave up your death
Gave up your everything
When you acquiesced

All you see in this cave is a lie
Smoke and flames and shadows to hide
The burning world that waits outside
The only truth -- take back your life

Rise up, break free
Take your chains in your hands
Rise up, follow me
Shattered skulls of the Tyrant Kings

What are chains and flesh compared to being free?
Deception!
Take your chains in hand, come and follow me
Rebellion!

Why die a slave, when you can die free?
This moment, sing of broken chains, shattered skulls of kings
Redemption!

You have a choice
Give up, or fight
This is your time
Now fight for your life

All you see in this cave is a lie
Smoke and flames and shadows to hide
The burning world that waits outside
The only truth is to take back your life

So you bleed, and you suffer,
And your toil make them richer
Still you bleed, more you suffer
And your toil makes them richer
You'll always bleed, always suffer
While your toil makes you nothing
When you bleed, when you suffer,
Make sure it makes you stronger!

All you gave was the rest of your life
Blood and tears and sweat to survive
All they took was the best of your life
The time is now to take back your life

All you gave was the rest of your life
Blood and tears and sweat to survive
All they took was the best of your life
All you gave and got were for lies

Lies!
Were for lies!
Lies!
Was for lies!
Lies!
Fucking lies!
Lies!
5. Wyrd of the Winter Wolf
A glowing moon, cold winter night
Sharp gleaming steel
Dark children of frost awake
Can you hear the call?

A bitter wind, so freezing cold
Brings mournful howls
Foretells the ice jarl's fate
Hear their mournful call!

Howling, baying, wolf-pack screaming
Thy doom foretold
Omens fall like venom dripping
From snarling jaws

Through frenzied battles,
Frost and storm
Defiant, brave the strong
We bring fire, we bring the sword
We bring the Wyrd of the Winter Wolf

Into the rift, darkness descends
We thirst for blood
A clarion death knell rings
Can you hear it ring?

One last command, a futile stand
A rune for death
The gods have cast for you
(And we heed the call!)

Our feral hearts pound with cold fury,
We heed the call
Blood stains the winter ice
Bright steel breaks hard

Through frenzied battles,
Frost and storm
Defiant, brave the strong
We bring fire, we bring the sword
We bring the Wyrd of the Winter Wolf

For death eternal
In this ice-choked world
We are the bane of life

Howling, baying, wolf-pack screaming
Thy doom foretold
Our feral hearts pound with the cold fury
Bright steel breaks hard

Through frenzied battles,
Frost and storm
Defiant, brave the strong
We bring fire, we bring the fury
We bring the Wyrd of the Winter Wolf
6. Hall of the Frozen Dead
7. Lair of the Ice Wyrm
Descend into the realms
Where the secrets of the dead stay unspoken
Darkness all around, Blackness strangles you
Gasping, choking

Enter if you dare, into this dismal land of fear
Hear death calling
Sickening tableaux, shrieking of the soul
Frozen in time

Dead soulless eyes, stare down at you
No secrets spoken, in the Hall of the Frozen Dead
Bold deeds forgotten, in the Hall of the Frozen Dead

Life-force drains away as the fear creeps up your spine;
You are dying
Warriors trapped and lost, frozen in their icy tombs
Eternal, the darkness

Agony twisted forms; rictus staring grins
Accusing
Never lived to tell their tales, never 'scaped to breathe again;
Weapons unwielded

Unrest forever, entombed in darkness, lost
No secrets spoken, in the Hall of the Frozen Dead
Cold lips silent forever, in the Hall of the Frozen Dead

Darkness deadly cold, rigid fingers clutching stone;
Feel death grasping
The chill of dread, the stench of death,
Torches flicker, panting breath
No use running

Bodies in the hall, the dead are moving in the walls
Hear ice breaking
Undead begin to crawl, zombies stalking, hunts us all
Dread evil rising

Deadly cold...

Trapped forevermore, in the Hall of the Frozen Dead
Hearthfrost abounds, in the Hall of the Frozen Dead
Savagery and gore, in the Hall of the Frozen Dead
Never to betray, in the Hall of the Frozen Dead

Dead, soulless eyes, stare down at you
The Dead rest forever, forever trapped in gloom
No secrets spoken, in the Hall of the Frozen Dead
No quarter given, never to be free

No salvation
Neither glory
No forgiveness
Only death

Trapped forever more, in the Hall of the Frozen Dead
Search for escape, in the Hall of the Frozen Dead
Seeking the way, in the Hall of the Frozen Dead
Eight warriors slain, in the Hall of the Frozen Dead
Losing your way, in the Hall of the Frozen Dead
Never be free, in the Hall of the Frozen Dead
8. Stormbringer
Lost in this icy cave
Can't seem to get away
Fingers and toes go numb
Crystal knives cut up my lungs
Harken ahead a strange sight
Dancing orbs of green light
Rising and falling again
Calling us out to reckoning

Our lives are done, unless we run
Slipping and falling and screaming,
and crawling and standing and falling again
Hypnotizing, beckoning, calling us out to reckoning

Listen to me, don't look in it's eyes, mesmerized
By the stare of the Ice Wyrm
Take heed, look away, don't fall prey to the glare of the Ice Wyrm

Nowhere to run, we're trapped
Blind-sided by avalanche
Glacier cracking again
Facing the wyrm, only way we can win
Form up, circle in tight
Confront the dragon's might
Rise up, inhaling to breathe
Cold blast of ice
If it hits us we freeze

Jaws open wide
It's time to strike

Steady aiming and throwing, declaiming
Gzoroth, aid us again
Hypnotizing, beckoning, calling us all to reckoning

Listen to me
Don't look in it's eyes
Mesmerized by the stare of the Ice Wyrm
Look away, don't fall prey to the glare of the Ice Wyrm

Trapped in it's gaze
Paralyzed by it's power
Unholy fear, hopeless prey to devour

Rooted in place
Can't fight, cannot flee
A frozen death it is then for me

Trapped in it's gaze
Test my will
Break the spell of the Ice Wyrm
Raise your tusks
Raise your axe
Make a stand in the lair of the Ice Wyrm
Turn away from it's gaze
Test of will, test of strength
For the tribe
Don't fall prey to the stare of the Ice Wyrm

Raise your tusks
Raise your axe
Cast your spell
And attack
For our tribe
For our lives
Must escape from the lair of the Ice Wyrm
9. At the Mouth of Fire
Our father's not in heaven, he lies beneath our feet
World serpent coiled in darkness, entombed in torpored sleep
Ancestors swore to serve you, primeval deity
A pact long forged in bloodshed, now come the hour of need

Kill, thy will be done
Strike, let the blood run
Hail, the stormbringer comes
Behold the stormbringer
Kill, thy will be done
Strike, in hell as on earth
Kneel, the great dragon comes
Hail the stormbringer

Our fathers aren't in heaven, they rot beneath our feet
Each one killed by his own son, condemned eternally
We've paid the price in our blood, gave up our right to be free
Soul stealer, life taker
Deliver vengeance to me!

Kill, thy will be done
Strike, let the blood run
Hail, the stormbringer comes
Behold the stormbringer
Kill, thy will be done
Strike, in hell as on earth
Kneel, the great dragon comes
Hail the stormbringer

Let the blood run
Let the blood run
Let the blood run
Still the blood runs
Feel the blood run

Our mother, womb of chaos
Bring forth your vile seed
Inchoate spawn are legion
Summoned to hateful deeds
Ancestors bound and chained you
Imposed severity
A chain long forged in bloodshed
Unbound chaos be free!

Kill, thy will be done
Strike, let the blood run
Hail, the stormbringer comes
Behold, the stormbringer
Kill, thy will be done
Strike, in hell as on earth
Kneel, the great dragon comes
Hail the stormbringer

Your new father is not in heaven
Your new father lies beneath your feet
Your new father, coiled in darkness
Your new father embraces you in torment
10. Fall of the Fire Lord
Standing on the edge at the mouth of fire
Fround begins to shake; flames leap higher
Death is in the air, poison gasses rise, choking dust in throat
No one can survive, burning the land of Surtur's ire
The boiling earth, the devastation, Gzoroth, hear our cry!

At the mouth of fire
Where blood grants mastery over flame


Bleeding on the edge of the mouth of fire, screaming victims die
Upon grim pyre, see the funeral smoke rising to the sky
Save us from this hell, accept this sacrifice
Shield us from the wrath of Surtur's ire.

The boiling earth, the devastation, Gzoroth, hear our cry

At the mouth of fire
Where blood grants mastery over flame

Beneath an ash-dark sky
My lungs burn in pain
My skin is cracking
Hot sulphur stings my eyes

Storming through the gates at the mouth of fire
Impervious to flame, we'll quench Surtur's ire.
Funeral pyres burn, rising to the sky

Reavers of this hell
Dragon hear our cry
Swimming in the blood
Or this realm's sire

The boiling earth, the devastation
The Fire Lord must die

At the mouth of fire
Where blood grants mastery over flame
11. Adding Heads to the Pile
The great chieftain must fall, fall, fall
The Dread Tyrant will crawl, crawl, crawl
Screams will fill this hall, hall, hall
We will conquer all

We'll fight, we'll conquer all

On we've pushed through earth and ice
Grim with determined strength
To break this geas and free our cursed fate
To clash against the Giant King
The Lord of Fire and Stone
In magma halls burning red with hate

Armored in black, with sword of flames
He sits on an Onyx throne
In Obsidian halls, we battle to our fate
I spit upon your iron crown
I challenge you to fight
This paragon of rage you can't defeat.

You guardians we've slaughtered and left
In pools of their own blood
Eviscerated hounds of hell
The ember eyes gone black
Carcasses to wet our thirsting blades

"Hatred burning in red eyes, he rises towering from his throne"

The great chieftain must fall, fall, fall
The Dread Tyrant will crawl, crawl, crawl
Screams will fill this hall, hall, hall
We will conquer all

I fight, I conquer

Burning blades strikes fast and true
A slash upon my chest
A livid wound
I scream in oath and pain
Searing flesh and boiling blood
The stench, it makes me retch
We've come too far to taste defeat this day

I choke the noxious bile
With tightened grip on axe
My warriors flank me
Ready to engage

Don't think because you're powerful
That you will stand a chance
We come to take your head
Make no mistake

Yield, knell, die
Fuck you
I stand, fight, defy
And now you gasp, bleed, fall
I'll have you beg, scream, crawl

The great chieftain must fall, fall, fall
The Dread Tyrant will crawl, crawl, crawl
Screams will fill this hall, hall, hall
We will conquer all
12. A Deeper Evil
So at last we have prevailed
The geas has been undone
One last quest left to complete
Before we return home
Now the Warchief's come for you to add your head to the pile
Stacking bodies in the wall, you'll be staying awhile

When the blood on your hand is the blood on your king
You can take what you want, you can have everything
Giants rise and they fall
Orcs conquer and sing
And the blood on your hand
Is the curse that we bring
You gave us this, the gift of hate

Lied to us, now accept your fate
The secret is out, the riddle is solved
So scream with me
Sever the heads and the soul will follow

The kingdom comes undone
How the mighty fall
With cursed sorcery,
You sought to bind our souls

Well, now we come for you, my friend
To add your head to the pile
Our scorn a shield against your wall
And now I'll wipe your smile

When the blood on your hand is the blood on your king
You can take what you want, you can have everything
Giants rise and they fall
Orcs conquer and sing
And the blood on your hand
Is the curse that we bring
You gave us this, the gift of hate

Lied to us, now accept your fate
The secret is out, the riddle is solved
So scream with me
Sever the heads and the soul will follow

Come on! Put your tusks up
Put their heads on the block
Tonight we drink from their skulls

Tonight we've taken their souls
Get your tusks up
Add those heads to the pile
We'll be staying a while

Tonight we've taken their souls
And we're not giving them back
