Slave to the Sword tracks

Lyrics


1. RISING

Welcome to the realm of darkness
We are anxious for your blood

Rising from the depths we crawl
Rising to the power all

Again to the cup of shadows
We relish in your fear

Rising from the depths we crawl
Boiling to the power all

(solo)

We rise to restore the light
Into nothingness you fall

Rising from the depths we crawl
Rising to the power all




2. SLAVE TO THE SWORD

With my sword in hand
I shall conquer all the land
Immortal
Supremacy is sought
Whence the blade was wrought

Behold the power I wield
Straight from the core
Immortal steel
Enslaving the world

Slave to the sword

I am he the bold
As the myth is told
Immortal
Raising fear on high
'Til the day you die

Slave to the sword

Taking and raping
The women enslaving
To chains all the children
Invading to pillage
The village
All things I ravage
I'm savage

You are the slave to the sword
Slave to the sword
You are slave to the sword

Slave to the sword
You are slave to the sword

Slave to the sword
You are slave to the sword
Slave to the sword

Slave to the sword
You are slave to the sword

Behold the bloody crown
Forgotten burial mound
All men are mortal
Alas amongst the dead
For once mine enemies said

You may be king amongst men
Master of war
But still you remain
Slave to the sword

Slave to the sword




3. IMMORTALITY MADE FLESH

Born into chains ever cursing our birth
So hearken my friends, we must vanquish our plight
By numbers by force we lift the curse
From the slavery we shall arise in might

Raise your swords up high my friends!

Raise your swords up high!

Behold! Their immortal kings, our foes
Fallen! Writhing in their death-throes
Alas! They lie obliterated into nothingness
Grim death! Is dealt, Immortality made flesh

Ruling with fear and with false renown
Boasting sovereignty, protecting so-called rights divine
By heritage you gained your crown
But blood will be the price of mine

Take your plots to hell with you!
Take your plots to hell!

Alas! Thou immortal king, my foe
Fallen! Writhing in thy death-throes
Thy convulsing face by my flail, I thresh
Grim death I deal, immortality made flesh

Commanding your slaves to conquer the lands
whilst sitting on satin and guzzling fine wine
True valor I gained not from lofty divans
But from the abyss to the throne I have climbed

Raise your swords up high my friends!

Raise your swords up high!

Behold! Their immortal kings, our foes
Fallen! Writhing in their death-throes
Alas! They lie obliterated into nothingness
Grim death! Is dealt, Immortality made flesh




4. FOE HAMMER

What was i Deepest dark abyss
Black iron heavy metal force of steel
InsidiousI brought the balance
Soul stealer descending that you feel

(?) on my quest
None (?) the power of a sword
Those who remain shall know my name
Foe Hammer

Murderous symmetry renewed
Red vision fill my (?) with hate
Carnivorous feeding flesh and blood
Perpetual now nothing combat

What was i Deepest dark abyss
Black iron heavy metal force of steel
Insidious i brought the balance
Soul stealer descending that you feel

Bite my blade
Taste my steel

You will bite the blade
Taste the steel

Even more slain than fall
Men shall fall

Foe Hammer




5. WARRIOR OF THE NIGHT

Upon their souls he feasts

Slayer of the lights

To his call they heed
From his hellish steed
From his wake runs blood

Red bloodstained steel
To his sword you kneel
All the world he smites
Warrior

6. ANCIENT VIOLENCE

Ancient violence!
Must we all propagate
For peace unnegotiable
Appeasing the vulgate
The clergy's insatiable
Thirst for bloodshed
Their eyes are blood red
Blind with vengeance
Behold, ancient violence!

Pulverized to death!
Precious life bereft!

Place your faith in those who speak with the unseen
Relentless genocide; crimes unseen

Kiss the floor, obey the sovereign
As he commands the slaughter of brethren

Ancient violence!
Must we intensify
A hunger so voracious
Impossible to satisfy
Warmonger's rapacious
Lust for power
The people cower
Rule without prudence
Behold, ancient violence!

Pulverized to death!
Precious life bereft!




7. FROM THE ABYSS

Of old was an age when all was darkness
And unwrought was the earth
Old of was an age when all was emptiness
Thence chaos had its mirth

Unbegotten beings of the cosmos
From the abyss we arose

The world comes war
We are the vast nothingness
Out of ancient void we are
From beyond, from the abyss

Awake are the eyes from ancient slumber
Intent to end all life
Awake are the eyes of insentient wonder
We've not forgotten our strife

Unbegotten beings of the cosmos
From the abyss we arose

To the world comes war
We are the vast nothingness
Out of ancient void we are
From beyond, from the abyss

A new is the spiritual upheaval
Lying slain are the meek
A new is the reign of rage primeval
Earth's blood we shall leak

Unbegotten beings of the cosmos
From the abyss we arose

To the world comes war
We are the vast nothingness
Out of ancient void we are
From beyond, from the abyss

Unbegotten beings of the cosmos
From the abyss we arose

9. BATTLE BORN

Feel the heavy thunder
Of carnage and morbid plunder
Come now brethren and fight
This land is ours by right

To our gods we cry
That we fear no to die
Renewing strength thereby
Cowardice is forsworn

The enemy's waylaid
Now leap into the fray
Hack away and pray
For glorious death, the battle born

The clangor of steel rings loud
Of fierce warriors so proud
Keen to ascend the endless skies
Where gleaming halls are prize

Blades in sheaths are set
Victory has been met
None can forget
Heaps of flesh lying torn
The heavens they have earned
For the end they yearn
Then shall they return
The glorious dead, the battle born

For the battle we are bred
Our banners on high you shall dread
Our victims we behead
All fear the battle born
Doomsday come anon
The final is foregone
Awaiting still the dawn
Of the glorious dead, the battle born




10. METAL IS KING

Immortal alloy forged
Bringer of endless war
Tempered steel you will feel
When the reaper makes his deal

Bow to your master for Metal is king
Unto the naysayers death I shall bring

Merciless conquering
Victory to the Metal kings
Glorybound, strike them down
Crack the sky and burn the ground

Bow to your master for Metal is king
Unto the naysayers death I shall bring

Forget all you heard
There's no power in the word
For when the reaper makes his deal
Trust in your steel

Swear by the hilt
Allegiance thence is built
For when the reaper makes his deal
Trust in your steel

When the reaper makes his deal
Trust in your steel

Metal is king, all hail the king
Metal is king, all hail the king
Metal is king!

Immortal alloy forged

Bringer of endless war
Tempered steel you will feel
When the reaper makes his deal

Bow to your master for Metal is king
Unto the naysayers death I shall bring
