1. Blade of Cimmeria (3:17)
Seraphim ryde in a
Radiant chaine in the
Light of the Moon
Omens and Heralds
Sing songs of Destruction
And Doom…

Caravan of desecration
With carnal and
Blaque Magick sins
Snake-worshippers
Under spell of the charm
Do not know of the danger they’re in

When the Blade of Cimmeria
Drinks the life from their veins
Of Cimmeria
Were the Warriors that came
High on the Lotus so they didn’t notice
The SLICE of the Blade of Cimmeria

(solo – Kroecher)

Mangling Bodies with
Stone-faced indifference
Our life and our Code
Treasures unbound
Flowing out like a fountain
Fills each hand with Gold

Terror and Vio-lence like
Squeezing out wine
And preparing a feast
There surely will be one
Considering all of the
Booty we handily seized

With the Blade of Cimmeria

Breaching the Gate
As the Steele starts to Cleave
Searing Flesh, steaming Blood
Like berserkers, we feed
Feed on the bloodshed
Feast on the corpse
CUT OFF YOUR OWN HEAD
TO ESCAPE OUR WRATH
2. North Wolves (6:49)
I've slayed the king, Brought down all his armaments
Everything is mine, Divined by rite of the gods
So pray that it wont be long til Walpurgis Night
Wailing will not end the Turmoil of the stars
Guilding them, the mob, it swells, dissatisfied
With rapier blades and torchlight dim, they ride
Unfettered by the guard and pushing hard, the time is nigh

We shall not face their Reckoning of malice, hate, and wrath
Rush to the front and we will raise the warning sign
It wont be long till...

Excited, thee, whenceforce I challenge thee
Predate, dominant your dire circumstance
Taking the throne, In vain, I act Alone,
Manically I'm in for the kill

I rule cold and alone, the forest still my throne
My warpaint never runs in lay of battle

I recoil in revenance at the sight i fell to behold
All at once I am changed, a god-king reborn
And at long last, we turn and forsake the past
The sky never looked so foreboding
Yet the tale must be told, on and on
The tale still bids to be told

Awash from the sands amidst the gripping waves
And Tides tremble in the face
Of iron rage and the old gods
3. Warrior Without Fear (4:19)
Storming with malice and hatred
Driving their squad to the sea
None to atone for by reaching our goal
And devouring all of their fleet

Call it old madness, call it the animal, wild
Neither prey nor victim will heed from their cry

Warrior without fear

To another long battle, to the snowy peaks, prepared
Our rations and our ale, feast and combat marry well
As we dine, our hell is in our steel that shines

Hold up, hold up your arms
Warrior without fear
Drive down, drive down the nails
Warrior without fear

Somehow we took advantage, their force in high ground fell
Our numbers strong, but stronger blood lust still
Strike down deep in instinct
It must be satisfied, succumb to hatred
Wield the sword of Damocles

Storming with malice and hatred
scorching the proud mountain flag
Maniacly raging and bludgeoning
All of their forces into human waste

Storming with malice and hatred
Satisfied with all our spoils
Scrolls of illusion and gemstones enchanted
Will aid in our forthcoming conquest

Hold up, hold up your arms
Warrior without fear
Drive down, drive down the nails
Warrior without fear
Hold up, hold up your arms
Warrior without fear

Storming with malice and hatred
Possessing and reaping our foes
Under command of the forces unseen
Power, lust, from beyond
Storming with malice and hatred
No we will never relent
Each generation will learn and then
Taste of the blood of the warrior within
4. Ninefold Muse (8:09)
Kneeling amongst a thousand corpses,
Reeling atop a sanguine precipice

Redivivus, engulf me within the circle,
Revive me, heal all of my wounds
Enraptured by their grace
I crawl down, like a ravenous dog
Starved and beaten raw
Elegant muses sake my soul

Blinded by their light, eons magic rite
Caught within their stare
Grace so warm and fair

Ninefold Muse
Heal my life
and protect me in light

And there i am, from death and back again
Ethereal beauty through these brand new eyes
And do not fear, it all will become clear

Ninefold Muse

Blinded by their light, eons magic rite
Caught within their stare
Grace so warm and fair

Purified there, deep inside there
And there i am, from death and back again
Ethereal beauty through these brand new eyes
And do not fear, it all will become clear

Ninefold Muse

Blinded by their light, eons magic rite
Caught within their stare
Grace so warm and fair

Ninefold Muse

Blinded by their light, eons magic rite
Caught within their stare
Grace so warm and fair

I rejoin my kin, and i will remember
All of thr godlike powers on this night
Within my grasp, a piece of veil in hand
So I may call upon them, all my life
And do not fear, it all will become clear
Renew my eyes
And give me brand new life
5. Bell of Tarantia (6:17)
Clutched deep within a calloused soul
The dust of a king without a throne
Torn from the plains for which he fought
Nemedian dogs shall burn

Bloodstained jewel, heart of all
Under lion standard sheathed in gold
Pythonian crypts of ancient lore
Bring down the cliffs on their foes

Heroes pyre at the castle spire
While a solemn belfry tolls
She cries in vain at her kingdoms pain
As the lions heart is torn away
The tolling bell of Tarantia
She cries for her fallen king

Traitor puppet roams the keep
Eastern dragons desecrate city streets
Silent servants stalk the halls
Serpentine lust abound
6. East of Sun (4:27)
A tale of wanderer
Of a mystery sacred
Power from beyond
A cry for glory
And a memory tainted
With the time

LOOKOUT!

FACING… with the hydra heads
They come Betwixt in spawn
Hellenic dawn
Mercy, all the people cry
Unto death’s door
Pulling out the floor

It’s alright, hold it down
They’re empty, the cradle and the jar
You see through, it can’t be
It’s where you are

Maybe it’s true
But what they say
Is simply not what they do
Come dare my pain
Each year that it takes from me I can deliver
I will strike by Blade…

Crossing into fiery paths
Devils and dust return
Upon the field we all burn
Elysium waits with open arms
A trivial dust of fate
Upon this plain

Myths of Glory
Takes the minds of the molded kind
Human folly
Grapes of siege on a stolen vine
Twist the fable
Into your own peace of mind
7. Swan Road Saga (6:25)
Here and now, we make our stand
against the wind, toward new sand
through misty fens I retrace my step
to find hall of ages amiss

white crown-ed waves, lapping the shore
on sands of the west, we shall wage our war
dragonships cleaving the seas they bestride
valiant Geat, King of the tides

O, son of Ecgtheow
Champion for Danes
cross the vast waters
to slay the beast
grasp your sword
defend our hall
alone you stand
glorious hero of lore

Grieving the lost, battle-brave thanes
hewn by the claw, lives lost in vain
boldness in heart, steel in hand
quench thirst for blood of this land

Fiery eyes gleam up from the moor
at fates command, ye weild the sword
harpstrings have sung the legend and lay
Eons untold shall recall this day

The claw of woe, by bare hands torn
symbol of hope, sheer might of man
hero born of distant land
with might of Oak, iron grip his hand
8. Oncoming Ice (8:34)
The freezing moon will give no solace
In Hecatomb, Lucifer drove us still
His open claw, a gesture so inviting
As we benighted all the world, and turns our heads

All we know is but the ice
The Oncoming Ice
All that we despise
And all that we love

Farewell to the plains
Farewell to the brooks and the valleys
Farewell to all that we forsook and took so for granted
Farewell to the seas
Farewell to the mountains and fields
Farewell to all that we forsook and murdered and vanquished

These freezing tides
Come at just the right time
All we know is but the ice

Hark well, Hark well to the direst warning
Heed well all these words
There’s no more that need to be spoken
Hark well, or all will perish now

PERISH NOW

Who’s to say, when it should happen?
Who’s to say, what shall be done?

THE FROST GIANTS have awoken
Their peaceful sleep disturbed
THE FROST GIANTS, they have spoken
Their peace shall be our death

The tundra consumes the sea
Not much more time til you and me
The tundra, engulfs all life
Time to die, no life, no flame, no light

Nothing can change.
9. Death Rider (Omen cover) (3:35)
Ride against the wind, shameless killer in the night
Rape another village, before the break of light
Trample down the ashes, grind them with your hate
Take another helpless life, before it's too late

Death rider, you've taken the earth by storm
Death rider, out of sin and hatred you were born

We all know the reason, you haven't any soul
None can fight your power, the key to hell you stole
Upon a flaming steed you ride, sickle tight in hand
In darkness you were born, in darkness you make your stand

Death rider, you've taken the earth by storm
Death rider, out of sin and hatred you were born

Ride against the wind, shameless killer in the night
Rape another village, before the break of light
Trample down the ashes, grind them with your hate
Take another helpless life, before it's too late

Death rider, you've taken the earth by storm
Death rider, out of sin and hatred you were born
10. Hall of the Mountain King (Savatage cover) (5:17)
Far away in a land caught between time and space
Where the books of life lay
We fear this castle of stone
The mountain king roams all alone in here
But he's not the only one
Lost inside, forever hidden from the sun

Madness reigns
In the Hall of the Mountain King

His deep dark eyes keep watch on his kingdom
And the mysteries that sleeps safe inside
His hall, his towers of stone
Shall not be overthrown for eternity
It is guarded by the king
Insanity and the power that it brings

Madness reigns
In the Hall of the Mountain King


Come with me, stay close by my side
As the darkness of night closes in
Don't fear in the thunder it roars
When the Mountain King calls all his children home
To where I hid him we must run
Refuge here, for those forever on the run

Madness reigns, my friends...
In the Hall of the Mountain King
