Lyrics

1. BLESSED & POSSESSED

Benedictus
Et Affectus
Benedictus
Halleluja

Warfare, pain and murder
In Golgatha we stand
For the last rite of heaven
The seventh sacrament

Born of blood and fire
And blessed by midnight's hand
In the core of the pyre
No sorrow we repent

And we ride by the storm
In the night we're reborn
And we carry our hearts to the dome
To the Bible we're sworn
In the dark we transform
And we die
By the dawn all alone

In the night we can't rest
In the dark we are blessed
And in moonlight we fight for the father
We are brave to the heart
Blood and fire we part
And forever we pray for we are

Blessed and Possessed
Blessed and Possessed
Blessed and Possessed
Halleluja

Cursed by our desire,
And guided by our lust
Holy father in heaven,
In sacristy we trust

Blessed before the altar,
No life in celibate
For the call of the wicked,
The wicked we await

And we die by the sword
Undead life our reward
And we carry our lust all alone
To the Bible we're sworn
In desire transform
We're not blessed
When undressed to the bone

In the night we can't rest
In the dark we are blessed
And in moonlight we fight for the father
We are brave to the heart
Blood and fire we part
And forever we pray for we are

Blessed and Possessed
Blessed and Possessed
Blessed and Possessed
Halleluja

Benedictus
Et Affectus
Benedictus
Halleluja

Benedictus
Et Affectus
Benedictus
Halleluja

In the night we can't rest
In the dark we are blessed
And in moonlight we fight for the father
We are brave to the heart
Blood and fire we part
And forever we pray for we are

Blessed and Possessed




2. DEAD UNTIL DARK

Prone to the grave, the dark side you walk
In the light of the morning we fall
Confront the brave, the rebel we stalk,
When we came - we saw - we conquered them all
Blessed when we die, confessed not a lie
In the still of the night we aware
Don't dare to cry, when fever up high
No escape - no break - your life we will take

Gone with the night
When the unholy demons of dawn
Pray
When the sunlight is dead we're reborn

We are dead until dark - when the night is calling
Dead until dark - and at midnight high
Dead until dark - and at dawn we all will die

We are dead until dark - when the Saints are crawling
Dead until dark - and the demons fly
Dead until dark - we unite the blood-red sky

Cursed by our fate, the undead crusade
For the sanctum deep under your skin
Raise up the blade, by night we invade
For the last - of times - the fight may begin
Murder bizarre, nocturnal we are
When we rise like the phantoms of dust
Sent from the dead, we long for the red
For in blood - in god - in heaven we trust




3. ARMY OF THE NIGHT

Stand up for the Night and call the Fight
Blend your Mind come right before the Light
Here we come the Army of the Night
Mater Maria

Live don't Sight, by Side and bound to break
Sent to die and fight the Final Day
Army of the Night we came to slay
Mater Maria

Better you pray before the Night is falling
Call on a Heavens and Amen
Follow the Night as your Messiah calling
Bring out the Sacrament Amen

Come on the other Side
Into the Dark we Hide

We are the Force alive
Into the War we ride
Hallelujah!

Stand up for the Night and call the Fight
Blend your Mind come right before the Light
Here we come the Army of the Night
Mater Maria

Live don't Sight, by Side and bound to break
Sent to die and fight the Final Day
Army of the Night we came to slay
Mater Maria

Enemies fallen with their Sermons spoken
Taken my higher and Amen
Call of the Mortals with their Bible broken
Suffer the Testament Amen

Come on the other Side
Into the Dark we Hide
Never live for the Right
Sacristalum!

We are the Force alive
Into the War we ride
Hallelujah!

Stand up for the Night and call the Fight
Blend your Mind come right before the Light
Here we come the Army of the Night
Mater Maria

Live don't Sight, by Side and bound to break
Sent to die and fight the Final Day
Army of the Night we came to slay
Mater Maria
-Solo-
Stand up for the Night and call the Fight
Blend your Mind come right before the Light
Here we come the Army of the Night
Mater Maria
Sanctify the Night for all the Time
Break the bread raise the holy wine
Army of the Night don't walk the Light
Mater Maria




4. ARMATA STRIGOI

Stand up for God
In the land of the fire
Bring on the madness
You're born to destroy
Beyond the trail
Of tartarean riders
Armata strigoi

Before the morning
Can break we retire
The searing heat
Of the sun we a void
Await the dark
Proud walachian fighters
Armata strigoi

We are the stormbound
The avatar
We are the sons of God and sorrow
We are the ones who see
No tomorrow
Suck up!
Armata de strigoi

We hall the cross
And we kill
By the bible
For seven sins
Are defined to deploy
Along the front
Of moldavian strikes
Armata strigoi

We pray for mercy
Of mater maria
The sacred lie
Who gave birth to the boy
We drink the blood
Of the fallen believer
Armata strigoi

We are the stormbound
The avatar
We are the sons of God and sorrow
We are the ones who see
No tomorrow
Suck up!
Armata de strigoi

We are the stormbound
The avatar
We are the sons of God and sorrow
We are the ones who see
No tomorrow
Suck up!
Armata de strigoi




5. WE ARE THE WILD

At the end of our time we stand
Hold the cross by the iron hand
Holy Christ in your command
We call on the dark
Be the last of the human kind
With no blood in you heart and mind
Alone into fire we walk

If we come all before you wake
Pray the lord your soul to take
For your blood will build a lake
Sing Halleluja
In the night when you rest your head
And we rise up from the dead
Unholy and fallen we are

Wild, wild, we are the wild
Wild, wild, break out and cry
Wild, wild, you are the wild
And till the morning
Stand up and fight

We are the wild
And after midnight we're alive
Can't stop the wild
Forever born to hail the night

In the dark of the night we pray
For the dawn of the final day
For unlight to guide the way
And god take our hand
Overhead where the demons die
And the daylight blinds the eye
Alone on the pyre we stand

In the daytime seek to hide
Till at sundown we unite
To begin the sacrifice
Scream Halleluja
Ride the storm and raise your fist
Celebrate the Eucharist
Go out in the night for we are

Wild, wild, we are the wild
Wild, wild, break out and cry
Wild, wild, you are the wild
And till the morning
Stand up and fight

We are the wild
And after midnight we're alive
Can't stop the wild
Forever born to hail the night

We are the wild
Until the morning we survive
Can't stop the wild
For we are born to win the fight

We are the wild




6. HIGHER THAN HEAVEN

In the night we break the sorrow
In the night we come alive
In the night Adrenalin is higher than heaven

In the night with no tomorrow
In the night demons are
In the night when carnal lust is higher than heaven

The cross on your wall, and demons inside
Come raise my sword to heaven
The night to be fall the pulse of the tide
The bell did strike eleven

And when the night has come
No, we never will return
Where the mortal pray resurrection
When the light has gone
In the sacristy we turn up high... And wake

In the night we break the sorrow
In the night we come alive
In the night Adrenalin is higher than heaven

In the night with no tomorrow
In the night demons are
In the night when carnal lust is higher than heaven

We call on the dark, the lord by our side
Take on the cross in heaven
We ride till we fall, unbroken we die
We strike by force of seven

And when the night has come
No, we never will return
Where the mortal pray resurrection
When the light has gone
In the sacristy we turn up high... And wake

The sundown we call, in twilight we hide
The night we still remember
We pray for them all, and restless we fight
We never will surrender

And when the night has come
No, we never will return
Where the mortal pray resurrection
When the light has gone
In the sacristy we turn up high... And wake

In the night we break the sorrow
In the night we come alive
In the night Adrenalin is higher than heaven

In the night with no tomorrow
In the night demons are
In the night when carnal lust is higher than heaven




7. CHRIST & COMBAT

Say will you stand up for Christ and combat

Ride,
Defend, the kingdom of god
Alive in the conquest of Normans
Crossed the land, to Byzantine shores
We storm Constantinople's walls
Gone ahead, the army went on
Arrived at the river of Jordan
Brave the dread, Jerusalem's sons
And one-by-one the pilgrims fall

And by the city of Siron
Their bodies lying to rot
And underneath blood and iron
Lies, the promise and honour of god

Say will you stand up for Christ and combat
Will you fight like a rebel, a rebel in black
Saw will you sand up for Christ and combat
Will you sanctify the dark

Kill and pray, crusaders at heart
In 1097 we started
Lost the way, and spread all apart
The holy roman empire
The remaining knights, prepared for attack
To honour the prophet departed
On they fought, with no turning back
The kingdom shine forever more

And by the city of Siron
Their bodies lying to rot
And underneath blood and iron
Lies, the promise and honour of god

Go straight to heaven for Christ and combat
Give your life for the sanctum that you never had
Take place in heaven for Christ and combat
Gone to sanctify the dark

Christ
Christ and combat
Christ and combat
Christ and in heaven we are

Christ
Christ and combat
Christ and combat
Christ and in heaven we are

Christ
Christ and combat
Christ and combat
Christ and in heaven we are

Christ
Christ and combat
Christ and combat
Christ and combat

Ten thousand men died for Christ and combat
Gone as mighty crusaders and never came back
Ascend to heaven for Christ and combat
In remembrance of the dark

Say will you stand up for Christ and combat

9. SACRAMENTAL SISTER

Bow down my sister, you've taken the veil
Locked up desire and buried your grail
Christ in your heart and the poison in mind
Merciful father bring light to the blind
Carry the cross under sacred command
When down your body the priars descend

Sacramental sister, in heaven or hell
When the night is falling, no moral can tell
Sacramental sister, to god you are sworn
When desire are calling, the Bible is torn

Sacramental sister
In the darkest night
Sacramental sister
In the act we saw you alive
Sacramental sister
Do the morning star
Sacramental sister
Let him take you far
To the light
Sacramental sister!

Inside the order and out of control
Corpus for sin and to heaven the soul
Fallen for sin by the breaking of bread
Lamb on the altar and werewolf in bed

Sacramental sister, in heaven or hell
When the night is falling, no moral can tell
Sacramental sister, impure to the bone
Dedicate your body to god all alone

Sacramental sister
In the darkest night
Sacramental sister
In the act we saw you alive
Sacramental sister
Do the morning star
Sacramental sister
Let him take you far
To the light
Sacramental sister!

Sacramental sister
In the darkest night
Sacramental sister
In the act we saw you alive
Sacramental sister
You were led astray
Sacramental sister
In the light of dawn
You will pray
Sacramental sister!




10. ALL YOU CAN BLEED

All night, fill me up
For the harvest of your veins we seek you
Outright, spill the sap, all alone where we appear
Don't you try to hide
By the sermon of the holy week,
You're born to cast aside, see the final time is near

Ex Christus, Ex corpus
Sanguinem malum
Ex sanguis, sanctorum
Sacramental greed

All you can bleed
In the sacrament of god we drink up
All you can bleed
No remorse
All you can bleed
In the midnight mass we celebrate you
All you can bleed
Christ by force

Break up, draw the line
To the underworld where we belong, you
Can't stop, might divine, we are spineless when you bleed
Inflame dynamite
For the mind is weak and lust is strong, all
Mores, we override, for we are the undead seed

Ex Christus, Ex corpus
Sanguinem malum
Ex sanguis, sanctorum
Sacramental greed

All you can bleed
In the sacrament of god we drink up
All you can bleed
No remorse
All you can bleed
In the midnight mass we celebrate you
All you can bleed
Christ by force

All you can bleed
Sanguis in dominus
All you can bleed
Halleluja
All you can bleed
Sanguis in dominus
All you can bleed
Halleluja

All you can bleed
In the sacrament of god we drink up
All you can bleed
No remorse
All you can bleed
In the midnight mass we celebrate you
All you can bleed
Christ by force




11. LET THERE BE NIGHT

Let there be night
God bless the father, the son
Let there be night
And day be gone
Let there be night
The mass of dark has begun
Let there be night
And damn the sun





DISC 2 - METALLUM NOSTRUM

1. TOUCH OF EVIL (JUDAS PRIEST COVER)

You mesmerise slowly
Till I can't believe my eyes
Ecstasy controls me
What you give just serves me right

Without warning you're here
Like magic you appear
I taste the fear

I'm so afraid
But I still feed the flame

In the night
Come to me
You know I want your Touch of Evil
In the night
Please set me free
I can't resist a Touch of Evil

Aroused with desire
You put me in a trance
A vision of fire
I never had a chance

A dark angel of sin
Preying deep from within
Come take me in

I'm so afraid
But I still feed the flame

In the night
Come to me
You know I want your Touch of Evil
In the night
Please set me free
I can't resist a Touch of Evil

Arousing me now with a sense of desire
Possessing my soul till my body's on fire

A dark angel of sin
Preying deep from within
Come take me in

You're possessing me




2. CONQUISTADORES (RUNNING WILD COVER)

Exploring the seas to conquer new lands
Troops arrayed by the church
Sanctified and blessed they set out
Crusaders, gentiles' scourge

They fight, they kill, they rape
Under the banner of the 'holy' church
They hunt, they lie, they cheat, they steal
Doing dirty deeds

Conquistadores -
- Hungry for gold, doing as the religious madman told
Conquistadores -
- Religion's knight, havoc and death caused by pride

Pearls of glass for ingets of gold
Violence, force and deceit
Taking the wealth or the Indian's life
Their way of feeding their greed

Heathen must turn to Christianity
It's like 'believe or die'
Arrogance and blindless, religion's force
Believers never ask the reason why

They fight, they kill, they rape
Under the banner of the 'holy' church
They hunt, they lie, they cheat, they steal
Doing dirty deeds

Conquistadores -
- Hungry for gold, doing as the religious madman told
Conquistadores -
- Religion's knight, havoc and death caused by pride




3. EDGE OF THORNS (SAVATAGE COVER)

An offering of reasons
We put them all away
A covering of treasons
That one by one we let slip away

A solitary dancer
So lost upon her stage

I have seen you on the edge of dawn
Felt you there before you were born
Balanced your dreams upon the edge of thorns
But I don't think about you anymore

A study made of winter
Of summers long ago
And dreams that use to glitter
Safely now hidden under snow

And so we end this chapter
And let the stage lights fade

I have seen you on the edge of dawn
Felt you there before you were born
Balanced your dreams upon the edge of thorns
But I don't think about you anymore

I have seen you on the edge of dawn
Felt you there before you were born
Balanced your dreams upon the edge of thorns
But I don't think about you anymore
I don't think about you anymore, anymore
I don't think about you
I don't think about you
I don't think about you
I don't think about you anymore...




4. POWER AND GLORY (CHROMING ROSE COVER)

So many times, we were searching for the way
To the land, where we can live one day
We went ahead, through the wind and rain
No longer will our hearts be filled with pain

Now we are here to open up the gate
Now we are here, for you it's not too late

[Chorus]:
With power and glory, we are coming home
With power and glory, escape from slavery

The time has come to look inside our hearts
The gate is open now, so we can start
Take you across like the man from Bethlehem
And with the sign of victory we will follow him

[Chorus]

Evil is strong and everywhere
So children of love must take care
It comes with black angels
And tempts you to sin
Be careful tonight,
The devil fights hard to win!

[Chorus]:
Power and glory, we are coming home
With power and glory, escape from slavery




[Chorus]:
With power and glory, we are coming home
With power and glory, we are not alone
With power and glory, escape from slavery
Escape from slavery
Escape from slavery




5. OUT IN THE FIELDS (GARY MOORE COVER)

It doesn't matter
if you're wrong or if you're right.
It makes no difference
if you're black or if you're white.

All men are equal
till the victory is won.
No colour or religion
ever stopped the bullet from a gun.

Out in the fields.
The fighting has begun.
Out on the streets.
They're falling one by one.
Out from the skies.
A thousand more will die each day.
Death is just a heartbeat away.

It doesn't matter
if you're left or to the right.
Don't try to hide behind the cause,
they want to fight.

There'll be no prisoners taken
when the day is done.
No flag, no uniform
ever stopped the bullet from a gun.

Out in the fields.
The fighting has begun.
Out on the streets.
They're falling one by one.
Out from the skies.
A thousand more will die each day.
Death is just a heartbeat away.

There's no communication,
noone to take the blame.
The cries of every nation,
they're falling on deaf ears again.

Out in the fields.
Out in the fields.
They're falling one by one.
Out in the fields.
No flag has ever stopped
the bullet from a gun.

Death is just a heartbeat away.
Out in the fields.
A heartbeat away.
Out in the fields.
Death is just a heartbeat away.
Out in the fields.
A heartbeat away.
Out in the fields.

In the fields.
The fighting has begun.
Out on the streets.
They're falling one by one.
Out from the skies.
A thousand more will die each day.




6. SHOT IN THE DARK (OZZY OSBOURNE COVER)

Out on the street I’m stalking
The night
I can hear my heavy breathing
Paid for the kill but it doesn't
Seem right
Something there i can't believe
In
Voices are calling from inside
My head
I can hear them i can hear them
Vanishing memories of things
That were said
They can't try to hurt me now

But a shot in the dark one step
Away from you
A shot in the dark always
Creeping up on you

Taught by the powers that
Preach over me
I can hear their empty reason
I wouldn't listen i learned how
To fight
I opened up my mind to treason

But just like the wounded and
When it's too late
They'll remember they'll
Surrender
Never a care for that people
Who hate
Underestimate me now

But a shot in the dark one step
Away from you
A shot in the dark not a thing
That you can do
A shot in the dark always
Creeping up on you

But just like the wounded and
When it's too late
They'll remember they'll
Surrender
Never a care for the people
Who hate
Underestimate me now

But a shot in the dark one step
Away from you
A shot in the dark not a thing
That you can do
A shot in the dark always
Creeping up on you




7. GODS OF WAR ARISE (AMON AMARTH COVER)

Darkness flees the rising sun
The village lies ahead
It will wake to a new day soon
Soon they'll all be dead

We came in cover of moonless night
Fifty men at arms
Now at first morning light
The church bell sounds the alarm

Sacrifice to Gods of old
Bleed them of their lives
Fresh blood on our swords
Gods of war arise
Sacrifice to Gods of old
Bleed them of their lives
Fresh blood on our swords
Gods of war arise

Hear the tortured screams
Shattering the air
They awake from soothing dreams
Into their worst nightmare

Fire sweeps their homes
They feel the dragon's breath
Consuming and destructive flames
Agonising death

Some seek shelter in the church
A refuge for those with faith
But we know how to smoke them out
A pyre will be raised

But those who choose to stand and fight
Will die with dignity
For the unfortunate few who survive
Waits a life in slavery

The day draws to an end
The night comes dark and cold
We return to our ships
With silver, slaves and gold

We gave them agony
As they fell and die
The Gods have granted victory
For our sacrifice




8. THE EVIL THAT MEN DO (IRON MAIDEN COVER)

Love is a razor and I walked the line on that silver blade
Slept in the dust with his daughter, her eyes red with the slaughter of innocence
But I will pray for her
I will call her name out loud
I would bleed for her
If only I could see her now

Living on a razors edge
Balancing on a ledge
Living on a razors edge
Balancing on a ledge
Balancing on a ledge
Living on a razors edge
Balancing on a ledge
You know, you know

The evil that men do lives on and on
The evil that men do lives on and on
The evil that men do lives on and on
The evil that men do lives on and on

Circle of fire my baptism of joy at an end it seems
The seventh lamb slain, the book of life opens before me
But I will pray for you
And some day I may return
Don't you cry for me
Beyond is where I learn

Living on a razors edge
Balancing on a ledge
Living on a razors edge
You know, you know

The evil that men do lives on and on
The evil that men do lives on and on
The evil that men do lives on and on
The evil that men do lives on and on




9. HEADLESS CROSS (BLACK SABBATH COVER)

Look through the people, and on through the mist
to the hill of the headless cross
Where all witches meet, on a night such as this
and the power of darkness is host
They come face to face, eye to eye, soul to soul
with an Angel that fell from the sky
Borne on the air, the screams and the wails
of the masses appointed to die

Listen for the feet as they pound the land to a tune of thunder
Watch as the legions ride again to a fate of death or torture
At the Headless Cross, at the Headless Cross

From the first evil night, when a black flash of light
cut the crucifix half to the ground
There's been no escape from the power of Satan
on a nation so brave and so proud

Listen for the feet as they pound the land to a tune of thunder
Watch as the legions ride again to a fate of death or torture
At the Headless Cross, at the Headless Cross

How do you feel, when the locks refuse the key
and the master is calling your name
Does the luck of the charm, really keep you from harm?
does the talisman protect you from pain?

Listen for the feet as they pound the land to a tune of thunder
Watch as the legions ride again to a fate of death or torture
At the Headless Cross, at the Headless Cross

From the first evil night, when a black flash of light
cut the crucifix half to the ground
There's no escaping the power of Satan
on a people so brave and so proud

Listen for the feet as they pound the land to a tune of thunder
Watch as the legions ride again to a fate of death or torture, oh no, oh
At the Headless Cross, at the Headless Cross
At the Headless Cross, oh, at the Headless Cross
Where will you run to?
At the Headless Cross
Look, to the Headless Cross
