1. Awakening the Muse (2:07)
Instrumental
2. We Shall Conquer (7:46)
Tonight your place it shall burn
This nigh the tables they will turn
Tomorrow doom will be your fate
Your punishment will soon await

WE SHALL CONQUER

Tonight we'll storm pearly gates
This night your walls and bones we'll break
Tomorrow weeping is your hymn
Your punishment this day will bring

At night your cities fall - Your towers proud and tall
Like shadows we will come - Your soldiers overrun
No pity - No remorse - I wield the steel of force
With fire and with sword - hail the new overlord

At night your cities fall - Your towers proud and tall
With fire and with sword - hail the new overlord

Hail

Your battle weary men will bow
Your battle weary kin will frown
Your battle weary wives will spread
When all your hope is cold and dead

We now shall conquer all that's yours
Resistance we will not accept
All your hold dear taken by force
Your either yield - Alive or dead

Your life - Your honour - In my hands
It's time for you to understand
There is no way for you to win
Yes we shall rule - Better give in
3. Sword of the Flame (7:25)
Shadows in the dungeon
Dance all around me
The ghosts of the tortured
Spirits of the dead

Like poisonous Venom
Black nercromancy
Has possessed my fortress
A curse on my head

Pestilence spread o'er my lands
Ichor seeps out of the sand
Is this the wrath of the gods
Is this the time of the fall of mankind

Darkness is threatening the light
Winged demons coem in flights
My men still loyal at my side
Together we stand and fight for love and life

I wield the sword of the flame
To bring back the light once again
This shall remain man's domain
I'm now the hunter of demons with sword of the flame

We shall have vengeance in the blade
We are the metal brigade
We are the last in the line
It is our honour to die for love and life

I wield the sword of the flame
To bring back the light once again
This shall remain man's domain
I'm now the hunter of demons with sword of the flame

Come into the light
Come into the light
I'm now the hunter of demons with SWORD OF THE FLAME
I'm now the hunter of demons with SWORD OF THE FLAME

By the lords of light
Vengeance is my name
Bringing back the sight
WITH THE SWORD OF FLAMES

By the lords of light
Vengeance is my name
Bringing back the sight
WITH THE SWORD OF FLAMES
4. Chronicles of Might (6:22)
Deep through
Where battle rages on
Through the fire of endless war
There in the middle of every fight
TIME IS FORGING - CHRONICLES OF MIGHT

All times your dreams are cast aside
A piece of your soul's condemned to die
Mountains - So massive and so high
They dare to climb up towards the endless light

Follow the sign
Follow the storm
Ride through the darkness
Reach the dawn
A throne is waiting in the kingdom of the sky

Follow the madness
Follow the hope
Unveil the mystery
Search for the cause
Your dreams are calling
Bathed in starlight of the night

Awake
Go and cross the sea
Hear the windsongs
Singing destiny
The bard - Around the fire tonight
Will sing the legends
THE CHRONICLES OF MIGHT
5. The Doom of Medusa (8:21)
On the 2nd of July 1816
The Medusa met her fate
13 days of madness followed
Helplessness and unbound hate

In the grip of the ocean's doom
Undemeath the scorching sun - Hell's moon
Left prey for destiny
Alive but desperate - Drifting free

The vanity of hope - A grave so deep and cold

An odyssey of 13 days
Curse the crew - The captain's evil ways
On a raft like rats not men
Some things the mind can't understand

Cast out and sacrificed - Who will live or die

Driven mad by aggression and hunger
Torn apart by despair
Overboard all the weak and the wounded
Survival's not fair

Watch the fighting
The killing - The violence
Insanity - Suicides
One hundred forty seven souls
Only fifteen survived

One hundred forty seven
One hundred forty seven souls

Man turned to cannibal - The torn flesh lived to tell
THE DOOM OF MEDUSA has turned life to bloodthirsty hell
THE DOOM OF MEDUSA has crushed with her spell
The ocean turned to hell - No more souls left to sell
6. Palace of the Martyrs (5:28)
A new force marches from the sea
To set their own new tyranny
Traitors welcome their demands
For death and sorrow

PALACE OF MARTYRS RISING
Lat fortress of faith is rising high

Defenders scattered all around
A new strong king has to be found
To send away kings from the east
With hammer in the fist

We bring a new religion to last forever,ore
Another unfaithful region
We'll purify with blood and gore

We kill for the prophet's vision
We slay under his law
Our scythes carry the mission
We fight the eternal holy war

Death
The answer
Take us to the sky
Damned the cowards
Who fight afraid to die

The Hammer landed on the field
We sent them back beyond the sea
No longer death will be around
No fear
No sorrow

PALCAE OF THE MARTYRS STANDING
PALACE OF THE MARTYRS STANDING TIGHT
7. Kings of Old (4:25)
The old gods call out to my soul
To enter their realm and behold
All glories of centuries passed
Forever they'll last

Into the deep of the woods
Eternal
Not evil nor good
Sworn to the ancient elder ones
For me they've come

Their whisper it rings through the trees
It brought stronger men to their knees
Born blessed pagan
I bow and gasp in awe

A whirlwind of force at palay
No mortal man could hold at bay
Wherever these spirits move
I will hunt with them
Bound
Gods and men

The old gods are part of my soul
My fate it is here and I know
Wherever I wander
I roam
I'm not alone

Their voices will carry me home
8. Enchanting Threnody (7:24)
Land of crying
Land of grief
A place of beauty and old beliefs


I'm coming back
To my father's home
Where children played now women mourn

Hear the pounding of the thunderstorms
Through the valleys
Where the fierce wind's blowing

Fear the howling of the prowling wolves
FINAL CHOIR OF ENCHANTING THRENODY

Life has withered and decayed
But dream and hope will never fade

It's always dark before the dawn
Bury me there
When I'm gone

All those who lived amongst the mountains and gazed at the moon
giving its place to the sun at dawn, they never died...
They just embarked for a better place beyond...
9. Stronghold (bonus track) (5:35)
Last defense for the mighty
Last defense for the mighty and the brave
Last frontier for protection
Last frontier where our values are kept safe

Don't back down
Don't let them take the crown
For there is a way to make this stronghold strong
'Till the last day

Don't despair
This keep - Our home - Our lair
Gather all ye proud and bold
JOIN IN THIS STRONGHOLD

Souls that can't be sold
Fortress black

Stronghold of the sane and the holy
Of the ones that defy hell's church and state
All usurpers and madmen
Here today they will meet their rightful fate

Ethical revolt of souls that won't be sold
Union of the free
Against the tyranny

Soon they'll be engraved
By those they once enslaved
When demon armies march
I will lead the charge

Our blessed walls of stone
Fortress black
STRONGHOLD

JOIN IN THIS STRONGHOLD
