DISC 1

1. THE MARCH TO WAR (INTRO)

(Instrumental)




2. GHOST DIVISION

Fast as the wind the invasion has begun
Shaking the ground with the force of thousand guns

First in the line of fire
First into hostile land
Tanks leading the way
Leading the way

Charging the lines with the force of a furious storm
Fast as the lightning phantoms swarm

200 miles at nightfall
Taken within a day
Thus earning the name, earning the fame

They are the
Panzer elite
Born to compete
Never retreat

Ghost Division

Living or dead
Always ahead
Fed by your dread

Always ahead as the blitzkrieg rages on
Breaking morale with the sound of blazing guns

First in the line of fire
First into hostile land
Tanks leading the way
Leading the way

Leaving a trail of destruction through a foreign land
(Waging war with conviction)
Massive assault live to serve the nazi plan
(Wehrmachts pride, ghost division)

Communications broken
Phantoms too far away
Thus earning the name, earning the fame

Pushing the frontline forth with a tremendous force
(Far ahead, breaks resistance)
Breaching the way for panzer corps
(Shows no fear, self-subsistent)

First in the line of fire
First into hostile land
Thus earning the name, claiming the fame

They were the
Panzer elite
Born to compete
Never retreat

Ghost Division

Living or dead
Always ahead
Fed by your dread




3. UPRISING

Warsaw Rise!

Do you remember when,
When the Nazis forced their rule on Poland
1939 and the allies turned away
From the underground
Rose a hope of freedom as a whisper
City in despair, but they never lost their faith

Women, men and children fight
They were dying side by side
And the blood they shed upon the streets
Was a sacrifice willingly paid

Warsaw, city at war
Voices from underground, whispers of freedom
1944 help that never came
Calling
Warsaw, city at war
Voices from underground, whispers of freedom
Rise up and hear the call
History calling to you
Warszawo, walcz!

Spirit, soul and heart
In accordance with the old traditions
1944 still the allies turn away
Fighting street to street
In a time of hope and desperation
Did it on their own and they never lost their faith

All the streetlights in the city
Broken many years ago
Break the curfew, hide in sewers
Warsaw, it's time to rise now




4. ACES IN EXILE

From near and far they arrived join the force
Ready to serve the Allies command
Sent in the training, though they already earned their Wings
They were ready to flight they were fit for the fight
Once in the air the battle began
They've proven their worth they fight for revenge

Fighter pilots in exile fly for foreign land
To the story be heard tell of 303
Fighter pilots of Poland in the battle of Britain
Guarding the skies of the isle

Even at night shadows cover the ground
Fighting goes on from dusk till dawn
We fall on the Reich with the claws of the eagle!
(They were) Ready to fight, (they were) ready to die
Up in the air, the battle goes on
They've proven their worth they have their revenge

Fighter pilots in exile fly for foreign land
To the story again to the 310
Men of Czechoslovakia in the battle of Britain
Guarding the skies of the isle

Over the battlefield, brave man long way from home
You are the chosen ones, sent to the sky to die
Over the battlefield, brave man long way from home
You are the chosen ones, sent to the sky to die

(Ooo) fly - it echoes in history
Turning the tides in the heavens above

Fighter pilots in exile fly for foreign land
To battles been won to the 401
Fighter pilots of Canada in the battle of Britain
Guarding the skies of the isle

On wings of history they turn from home
To live eternally sky bound they roam
In our own history, never before
Was moral to so few

Fight the pilot in exile!




5. CLIFFS OF GALLIPOLI

Hear them whisper voices from the other side
Hear them calling
Former foes now friends are resting side by side

They will never leave our hearts or fade away
Live forever
They were far to young to die in such a way

How many wasted lives? how many dreams did fade away?
Broken promises they won't be coming home
Oh mothers wipe your tears your sons will rest a million Years
Found their peace at last as foe turn to friend and forgive
And they knew they would die

Gallipoli
Left their letters in the sand
Such waste of life
Gallipoli
Dreams of freedom turned to dust

Hell is waiting where the ocean meets the sand
Cliffs of burden
Where the soldiers rushed into a certain death

At the shoreline blood of heroes stains the land
Light a candle
One for each of them who fought and died in vain

There is no enemy there is no victory
Only boys who lost their lives in the sand
Young men were sacrificed their names are carved in stone And kept alive
And forever we will honour the memory of them
And they knew they would die




6. WHITE DEATH

Almost night, a crimson horizon, Painting a thousand legs Red
As your army approach in the east, a panther is searching His prey
All alone, a man with his gun, wanders into the wild
Drags you down, you can't hide once he is onto your trail

Enter the night, a flash in the darkness, White Death is Heading your way
The fear of his foes, a hero at home, hundreds will fall By his gun

You're in the sniper's sight, the first kill tonight, time To die
You're in the bullet's way, the White Death's prey, say Goodbye

After the dawn, when morning has broken, the snow was Whitened to red
Hundreds of soldiers were harmed in the fight, a tale of a Sniper is born
Snowing mouth, hiding his breath, he is steady at hand
Eye to eye, target in sight, the moment to fire has come

Hundereds of kills, a men and his rifle, embodies the Sissu of Finns
Stay out of sight, and cover your head, when he pulls the Trigger you're dead

You're in the sniper's sight, the first kill tonight, time To die
You're in the bullet's way, the White Death's prey, say Goodbye

You're in the sniper's sight (sniper's sight)
Your his first kill tonight (first kill tonight)
Say goodbye (say goodbye)




7. SWEDISH PAGANS

Wohoho!

The wise woman said:
''Once you're hardened in battle there's no coming back''.
Fight or fall
And before the attack
Feel your blood starts to boil in your veins as you charge.
Hundreds fallen
As the fire inside is ignited by bloodshed, in berserkers From North.
Could it be as was said?
When the serpent be woken.
Fenrir howls

Swedish pagans marching ashore.
Forged in Valhalla by the hammer of Thor.
Out from Asgard, our viking ship sails.
Never to turn back again.

Wohoho!

Where brothers have past is where we will be proven, the Ground they begun.
Standing tall
And we know if we fall, our comrades awaits in Valhall.
Odin's calling
As the fire inside is ignited by bloodshed, in the Circuits of Nord.
Will it be as was said, will the serpents be woken?
Fenrir howls!

Swedish pagans marching ashore.
Forged in Valhalla by the hammer of Thor.
Out from Asgard, our viking ship sails.
Never to turn back again.

First to the battle, first to the feast,
Destiny waiting, no retreat, retreat!

Swedish pagans marching ashore.
Forged in Valhalla by the hammer of Thor.
Out from Asgard, our viking ship sails.
Never to turn back again.

Wohoho!




8. WOLFPACK

To their own shore came the world war
Gleaves and the Ingham
Leading the Bury west

Took the short way in
The long route back convoy 92
Bury Gleaves and Ingham leading
Tankers to the west
And upon the north atlantic
Lies the silence of the seas
On a quiet night in the darkest hour
The kriegsmarine appear

Above the surface it seems quiet and calm
Deep down below the wolfpack lurks

To their own shore came the world war
Gleaves and the Ingham
Leading the Bury west
In their own track came the wolfpack
Gleaves led the convoy
Into the hornets nest

At the crack of dawn the second day
Bury stands in flames
Half the convoy sunk or disabled
Heading back to shore
But below the north atlantic
On the bottom of the sea
On the second night in the darkest hour
The kriegsmarine return

The wolfpack surface for a second time
To make the convoy face its fate

To their own shore came the world war
Gleaves and the Ingham
Leading the Bury west
In their own track came the wolfpack
Gleaves led the convoy
Into the hornets nest

Under fire under water
May 42 when
Bury did fail the test
To their own shore came the world war
Gleaves and the Ingham
Leading them into death

569 makes the contact and lead them
U-94 scores a kill in the dark
124 sinking 4 in 2 approaches
406 suffers failure on launch




9. 40.1

So silent before the storm, awaiting command
A few has been chosen to stand as one outnumbered by far
The orders from high command "fight back hold your ground"
In early september it came a war unknown to the world

No army may enter that land that is protected by polish Hand
Unless you are 40 to 1 your force will soon be undone Undone

Baptised in fire of fire 40 to 1
Spirit of spartans death and glory
Soldiers of Poland second to none
Wrath of the wehrmacht brought to a halt

The 8:th of september it starts the rage of the reich
A barrage of mortars and guns stand fast the bunkers will Hold
The captain has pledged his life "I'll face my fate here"
The sound of artillery strike so fierce the thunder of guns

So come bring on all that you've got come hell come high Water never stop
Unless you are 40 to 1 your lives will soon be undone Undone

Always remember a fallen soldier
Always remember fathers and sons at war
Buried in history




10. THE ART OF WAR

I stand alone and gaze upon the battlefield
Wasteland is all that's left after the fight
And now I'm searching a new way to defeat my enemy
Bloodshed I've seen enough of death and pain

I will run, they will hunt me in vain
I will hide, they'll be searching
I'll regroup, feign retreat they'll pursue
Coup de grâce I will win but never fight

That's the Art of War!

Breaking the will to fight among the enemy
Force them to hunt me they will play my game
And play by my rules I will be close but still untouchable
No more will I see suffering and pain

They will find me no more I'll be gone
I will have them surrounded
They will yield whitout fight overrun
Coup de grâce I will win but never fight

Broken and lost
Tired of war
They'll surrender to me
Caught in my trap
There's no way out
Fail never again never again




11. ATTERO DOMINATUS

Attero!
Dominatus!
Berlin is burning
Denique!
Interimo!
The reich has fallen

We stand at the gates of Berlin
With two and a half million men
With six thousand tanks in our ranks
Use them as battering rams

Artillery leading our way
A million grenades has been launched
The nazis must pay for their crimes
The wings of the eagle has been broken

Marshall Zhukov's orders:
Serve me Berlin on a plate!
Disregard the losses
The city is ours to take

The price of a war must be payed
Millions of lives has been lost
The price must be paid by the men
That started the war in the 30's

The spring of the year '45
The year when the nazis will fall
We're inside the gates of Berlin
The beak of the eagle is broken

Comrade Stalins orders:
Serve me it's head on a plate
Disregard the losses
The eagle's land is ours to take

March!
Fight!
Die!
In Berlin!
March!
Fight!
Conquer!
Berlin!




12. THE PRICE OF A MILE

Hear the sound of a machinegun
Hear it echo in the night
Mortars firing rains the scene
Scars the fields that once were green

It's a stalemate at the frontline
Where the soldiers rest in mud
Roads and houses all is gone
There's no glory to be won

Know that many men will suffer
Know that many will die
Half a million lives at stake
At the fields of Passchendaele

And as the the night falls the general calls
And the battle carries on and on
What is the purpose of it all?
What's the price of a mile?

Thousands of feet march to the beat
It's an army on the march
Long way from home
Paying the price in young mens lives

Thousands of feet march to the beat
It's an army in despair
Knee deep in mud
Stuck in a trench with no way out

Thousand of machineguns
Kept on firing through the night
Mortars blazed and wrecked the scene
Gone is the fields that once were green

Still a deadlock at the frontline
Where the soldiers die in mud
Roads and houses since long gone
Still no glory has been won

Know that many has suffered
Know that many has died
6 miles of ground has been won
Half a million men are gone

And as the men crawled the general called
And the killing carried on and on
What was the purpose of it all?
What's the price of a mile?

There's no price for a mile




13. PRIMO VICTORIA

Through the gates of hell
As we make our way to heaven through the nazi lines
Primo Victoria

We've been training for years
Now we're ready to strike
As the great operation begins
We're the first wave on shore
We're the first ones to fall
Yet soldiers have fallen before

In the dawn they will pay
With their lives as the price
History's written today
In this burning inferno
Know that nothing remains
As our forces advance on the beach

Aiming for heaven though serving in hell
Victory is ours their forces will fall

Through the gates of hell
As we make our way to heaven through the nazi lines
Primo Victoria

On the 6th of june
On the shores of western europe 1944
D-day upon us

We've been here before
Used to this kind of war
Crossfire grind through the sand
Our orders were easy
It's kill or be killed
Blood on both sides will be spilled

In the dawn, they will pay
With their lives as the price
History's written today
Now that we are at war
With the axis again
This time we know what will come

6:th of june 1944
Allies are turning the war
Normandy state of anarchy
Overlord




14. METAL MEDLEY

I have a phobia
A fear of the dark
Afraid to shoot strangers
The animal talks

Guns scare me shitless
But love guns my friend
The sentinel's coming
But is this the end?

Riding on this crazy train
I'm going paranoid
Watch me lose my mind
And break the law
Breakin the law, breaking the law !

I'm a metal machine
It's close to midnight and
He's barking at the moon
You're a metal machine
The rainbow in the dark is shining

Falun metal machine
It's close to midnight and
He's barking at the moon
Falun metal machine
The kings of metal ride the sky

Is this St. Anger
The ultimate sin
Yes, it is
Or have I really
A black knight within?
Yes, I have

The gates of babylon
Are open and wide
Shout at the devil
There's nowhere to hide

Fighting for the world to keep
The wild child in its cage
Broke my metal heart
Against the wall
Against the wall, wall!

It's close to midnight and
He's barking at the moon
Falun metal machine
The rainbow in the dark is shining

Come suck my metal machine
It's close to midnight and
He's barking at the moon
Yea, yea, yea metal machine
The kings of metal ride the sky

Take a skyride with me, then you'll see

When the priest killed a maiden in the metal church
Armored saints and warlocks watched the slaughter
Rage of the slayer forced the pretty maids
To kiss the queen in crimson glory




15. DEAD SOLDIERS WALTZ (OUTRO)

(Instrumental)




DISC 2

1. SCREAMING EAGLES

Crack of the lightning splitting the ground
Thunder is sounding, artilley pounding
Wrath of the nazis cast on Bastogne
Facing their forces alone

Alone!

Sent from the skies jumped into the unknown
The march to Berlin has begun
Spearhead the charge surrounded by foes
Eagles are leading the way

France is still under enemy rule
Push, axis retreat

Thrown towards Arnhem a bitter defeat
They're stretched out just one bridge to far
Turn of the tide, it's breaking away
Losing momentum, retreat

Go to Bastogne, the crossroads must hold
Stand, alone in the cold

Dig your own foxholes or dig your own grave
The storm is about to begin
The seige has begun, there's nowhere to run
Panzerkampfwagen emerge

Tanks and mortars are shaking the ground
Prey of man and machine

Chill of the winter bite to the bone and christmas is drawing near
Soldiers are freezing, the death toll increasing
They're dying in their holes
There's no surrender there's no retreat, the wehrmacht is Drawing near
There's no reinforcements they're fighting all alone

Sent from the skies ended up in Bastogne
As Easy, as hard as they get
Nazi command request and demand
Offered surrender - declined

Nuts! the generals word echo clear
Nuts! the nazi's shall hear




2. COAT OF ARMS

That dawn, envoy arise!
Morning of Octover 28th
"No Day" proved by deeds
Descendants of Sparta, Athens and Crete!

Look now, ready to fight!
Enemies charge from the hills
To arms! Facing defeat
There's no surrender! There's no retreat!

Time after time force the enemy back to the line!

Coat of arms banners fly in the wind!
For the glory of Hellas!
Coat of arms bringing freedom of death!
Blood of king Leonidas!

Air raid! Pounding the land
Bombers are flyn' both day and night
End you six days of reign!
Good bye invaders! Bomb raid in vain!

Strike hard! The tables have turned
Drive them back over the hills
At arms! Just like before!
Soldiers! Civilians! Hellas's at war!

By their own hand forced the enemy out of their land!

Coat of arms banners fly in the wind!
For the glory of Hellas!
Coat of arms bringing freedom of death!
Blood of king Leonidas!

Just like their ancestors ages ago
Fought in the face of defeat
Those three hundred men left a plight to uphold
Freedom or death in the fight

Then, now again,
Blood of heroes saving their land

Coat of arms banners fly in the wind!
For the glory of Hellas!
Coat of arms bringing freedom of death!
Blood of king Leonidas!

Coat of arms banners fly in the wind!
For the glory of Hellas!
Coat of arms bringing freedom of death!
Blood of king Leonidas!




3. INTO THE FIRE

Sent from home overseas
And into the unknown
Barely landed in the jungle
Sent on first patrol

Sundown darkness falls
Dig in for the night
Ambushed in the dawn they came
The jungles alive

I feel my fire starts to burn
The heat controlling my mind
Berserk a savage running wild
Within me the beast starts to roar

Now im ready to strike
A creature of the night
Into the fire
A flame of napalm strike

Sarges down im in charge
Vcs everywhere
Overrun yet order airstrike
Condemned us all to burn,

Napalm from above
Burning friend and foe
Chaos on the battlefield
The jungles on fire

This place its driving me insane
Napalm its burning us all
This fight no man will live to tell
Within me my blood starts to boil

From above the airstrike came
And it burned the world below
Napalm falling from the sky
And it leaves no man alive

I feel my fire starts to burn
The heat controlling my mind
Napalm its burning us alive
Within me the beasts final roar




4. TALVISOTA

Rise of nations pride

Russians on a route to ruin
Kreml is more then certain to win
Sent away an army to the west

Blizzard reigned the ground were chosen
Snow was deep and hell were frozen
Stalin were too eager to invade

He thought of the might he possessed
And not of his foe
Rage of winter

Rise, nations pride
Hold whats yours
Strike em where it hurts

Fight, hold your ground
Winter war
Reinforce the line

Split them into small divisions
Rip em of the conquest visions
Motti tactics used with great result

Snipers move unseen in snowfall
Force them to retreat and recall
Fight the russian rule and their demand

With molotov coctail in hand
No fear of their tanks
Death or glory

A slice of a knife to a throat
And their blood turns to ice
Talvisota




5. FINAL SOLUTION

Country in depression
Nation in despair
One man seeking reasons everywhere
Growing hate and anger
The Fuhrer's orders were precise
Who was to be blamed and pay the price!

Wicked propaganda
Turning neighbors into foes
Soldiers of the Third Reich searching homes
And then the former friends are watching
As they are rounded up one by one
Times of persecutions has begun

Ever since it started
On Crystal night of 38
When liberty died
And truth was denied
Sent away on train on a one-way trip to hell
Enter the gates - Auschwitz awaits!

When freedom burns
The final solution
Dreams fade away and all hope turns to dust
When millions burn
The curtain has fallen
Lost to the world as they perish in flames

There was a country in despair
There was a nation in recession
One man finding reasons everywhere
Then there was raising hate and anger
The Fuhrer's orders still apply
Who was to be blamed and send to die!

Ever since it started
On crystal night of 38
When liberty died
And truth was denied
Sent away on trains
sent on a one-way trip to hell
Enter the gates - Auschwitz awaits!

When freedom burns
The final solution
Dreams fade away and all hope turns to dust
When millions burn
The curtain has fallen
Lost to the world as they perish in flames

When freedom burns
The final solution
Dreams fade away and all hope turns to dust
When millions burn
The curtain has fallen
Lost to the world as they perish in flames




6. BACK IN CONTROL

Sent to the islands to secure what is ours
Marching ashore in the cover of night
Hide until dawn and attack in the twilight
Shake them awake with the thunder of guns

Orders from the iron maiden, get the islands back
Failure will not be accepted, call for artillery strike, Launch attack

We are Back in control, force them to surrender
Take what is ours, restore law and order
Back in control, push them further out to sea
Falklands in our hands, back under british reign

Push them back further and out from the islands
Into our fleet that will stop their retreat
Mark their positions and call in the airforce
Harriers and Vulcans strikes at our command




7. PANZERKAMPF

Into the motherland the german army march

In the soviet union summer 1943
Tanks line up in thousands as far the eye can see
Ready for the onslaught ready for the fight
Waiting for the axis to march into the trap
Mines are placed darkness in the cover of the night
Waiting to be triggered when the time is right
Imminent invasion imminent attack
Once the battle started there's no turning back

The end of the third reich draws near
It's time has come to an end
The end of an era is here
It's time to attack

Into the motherland the german army march
Comrades stand side by side to stop the nazi charge
Panzers on russian soil a thunder in the east
One million men at war the soviet wrath unleashed

Fields of Prokorovka where heat of battle burned
Suffered heavy losses and the tide of war was turned
Driving back the germans fighting on four fronts
Hunt them out of russia out of soviet land
Reinforce the frontline force the axis to retreat
Send in all the reserves securing their defeat
Soldiers of the union broke the citadel
Ruins of an army axis rest in hell

Oh mother russia union of lands
Will of the people strong in command
Oh mother russia union of lands
Once more victorious the red army stands




8. 7734

The dawn of time breaks
See the sun rise to the sky
The wheel of time begins to turn

But then we heard it
A divine voice out of nowhere
Spoke to our hearts and showed the way

Almighty lord we have come to your hall
Do glatem live, creator of all
Open your heart and you will find a way
Paradise calling and enter you may

Falling down
Now your soul returns to paradise
7734

The wheel kept turning, ages came
Time passed us by
We lived in perfect harmony
But then it happened
Our ranks decreased rapidly
But now it's time for our return

Once we were numerous
But that's long ago
We are no longer 7734
The last 2 united and 2 became 1
111 they perished in flames




9. HELLRIDER

Engines are running our blood burns like oil.
Head one by One down the highway
Tires are screaming leave trails on the road, the sirens Of death coming our way

We'll always be one step ahead, we'll not fall back

Pedal to metal rock hard and ride free, the philosophy of A Rider
Don't use the brakes ride on faster instead, adrenaline Taking you higher

Fall back in line or stand away, we like it fast

Into hell we ride fast as lightning, enter the darkness
The weak ones will pay
Ride through fire cause revolution, this is a hellrider's Way

Crushing the traitors to no man we kneel, the power is at Our command
Nothing can stop us it's head over heel, united together We stand

If it's to hard then you're too weak, you're in our way

If you ain't tough enough to play, get out our way




10. PANZER BATTALION

Under this sun no shadows will fall
Piercing our eyes as we charge
An armoured battalion on course to the east
Closing the end of its march

This time were here to finish a job
Started a decade ago
Driving the animals out of their holes
To bury them 6 feet below

Armoured tanks of mass destruction
Killers in the east
Rats who dares to stand before us
Feel our guns go live

Death in the shape of a panzer battalion
Insect of terror dont run face your fate like a man
Cannot outrun our panzer battalion

Thousands of tons of armour and guns
Making its way through the sand
Our panzer battalion is back for revenge
Artillery sweeping the land

First strike is ours no mercy is shown
Theres rivers of blood in our track
Breaking their lines of defence with our tanks
Infantry watching our back

Blow their SAM sites clear for air strike
Ready for the storm
Minefields swept theres no surrender
Feel our napalm burn

Under this sun no shadows will fall
Piercing our eyes as we charge
An armoured battalion on course to the east
Has reached the end of its march




11. RISE OF EVIL

A nation in despair, weakened by war, defeated
Lost their pride in Versailles
A former prisoner, with a vision or a grand delusion
Rise to power in the reich

Rebuilding an army
Make the nation proud
Disregarding the treaty
Secret plans for "lebensraum"
Start the holocaust

The reich will rise
Propaganda, the reich will rise
To last a thousand years

Burning books to spread, anti-semite propaganda
Who will stop the madmans reign?
Night of broken glass, send the jews to Dachau death camp
On a path to certain death

The "anschluss" completed
On the brink of war
Act brutal with no pity
Be harsh, show no remorse
Start the warmachine

In the last days of peace
Europe holding it's breath
An invasion is coming but when will it start?
Who will be first to fall? who will be last to stand?
Who will stop all this madness that has consequences no man understand?
No man, no land!




12. 40.1

So silent before the storm, awaiting command
A few has been chosen to stand as one outnumbered by far
The orders from high command "fight back hold your ground"
In early september it came a war unknown to the world

No army may enter that land that is protected by polish Hand
Unless you are 40 to 1 your force will soon be undone Undone

Baptised in fire of fire 40 to 1
Spirit of spartans death and glory
Soldiers of Poland second to none
Wrath of the wehrmacht brought to a halt

The 8:th of september it starts the rage of the reich
A barrage of mortars and guns stand fast the bunkers will Hold
The captain has pledged his life "I'll face my fate here"
The sound of artillery strike so fierce the thunder of guns

So come bring on all that you've got come hell come high Water never stop
Unless you are 40 to 1 your lives will soon be undone Undone

Always remember a fallen soldier
Always remember fathers and sons at war
Buried in history
