At War with Satan tracks

Lyrics

1. AT WAR WITH SATAN

The dark silouette of the creature
Poised, crouched on the corner of a cliffs edge
Waits eagerly, eyes glare patiently.
Red eyes filled with fire and torment
Gleam in the frenzied brightness
Across the shadowed vallies below.
A crack of thunder breaks the deafening silence
Which once ruled the planes, the creature is unmoved
By the commotion and the noise, and the blinding fork
Of lightening which strikes only a few yards from where
Lays it wait for something...
Satan laughs, wings spread to magnificent fullness,
The creature stands at full glory, inhaling deeply
he ice cold air each tender muscle rippling in
Tthe almighty stench of the great dimentional diety...
Lucifer smiles, from the far far west a chariot of fire
Emerges travelling at a tremendous speed toward the
Creature, the creature laughs as if in an immense
State of frenzy the creature leaps up off the ridge
And hollers with dignity in the now cloudless sky
Its long red hair blowing freely in the wind...
The chariot emerges and with a sharp swift movement
The creature takes the reigns and flies up into the
Night, howling out immortal cries, a prediction
Of war,

At war with Satan!

The warriors gather slowly around
The sacred city, Hell
Satan screams a vengance
On the land as the angels fell
Tyrants pray disaster for the
Land of love and trust
Demons plot a way to turn
The Heavens into dust.

The standard bearers chosen
From the mass of Satan's dogs
To hold the flag of Hades high
Defying all the gods
Satan laughs the words of war
The Heavens shake with fear
Armageddon sings his song
The battle's ever near.

Let the joyous celebrations of Hell begin

Who holds the keys to the seven gates?

Lucifer's demonic laughter
Assist our quest, Belial prays
free from Hell who serves the master
Sound the charge on Sabbaths day.

Charge!

Crest the demon's souls
Show yourselves in power
Angels fear resist
nothing holds the storm

Inform the grand master of Hades

Storm the gates!

Free from the pits of Hell
Slaves emerge the mountain
We shall destroy the accursed Heavens
Advance great legions strong
Crush the gates and enter free
Our lord of Hell must take God's throne
Heavenly inferno
Spread the message far...

Take to the skies!

Come on...

Frenzied demons - Angel's cries
Lucifer commands the orgy
Molten mayhem, one thousand lies
Heaven fails to hold tranquility

The brides of sin are wed
Their price, nine holy heads
White marble walls bleed red

Fuck the Bastards

Come on...

God's creation - all must see

Heavens Hell
God has fell
Sound the knell

Where time and space collide
Mortals sit and watch the tide
Of Angels crashing up against the sacred shore

Without the holy grail
Only evil can prevail
The church of God can't hide the truth no more
Can't see the light no more

Light up the skies...

The Demons ring the Sabbath bells
Rejoice the witches chant
Preper the sacrafice - by fire
The blood runs black through heavens shell
Declare the witches dance
Nothing shall suffice
The souls of Christ

Drag him through the whores!

Come on...
Come on...

Orgies filled with joyous laughter
Alters of the flesh
Equinox eternal glory
El descends in death

Satan's empire
A new born flaming star
Children screaming out in pain
Destroy the priests
Destroy their reign

Tyrant pledge the souls of legions
Sullen and remorse
Tana turns the key of life
To hear the thunder roar

Ancients gather amidst the stars
Mortals stare in fear
The Earth is damned beneath the mist
A veil of angels tears

White clouds of life are turning black
The virgin pure she fears attack

Come on...

You are damned...

Children of pleasure move
Appear amongst us
The dark Lord has opened his jaws
Raise for Satanic queen
Ye sons and daughters
Take heed the flame forever learn
Now is come salvation
Strength and the kingdom of our
Satanic majesty
You'll always learn!

Are you damned in Hell?

Damned in Hell

Lilith holds the black heart in her hands
The blood flows
Desecration of God's holy shrine
Armageddon

Hahahahahhahaha

Pandamonium burns in the night
The Hell spawn
Celebrations at Sabbats galore
Unite with mother whore

Take that bitch
We shall not be destroyed...

Satan laughs, damnation has sunk its talons deep
Into the womb of utopia spilling forth great streams
Of virginal purity and bliss.
The golden throne of the tetgrammaton is ablaze,
Satanic majesty sits proud, the joyous drones of celebration
Enact scenes of blasphemy, lust and destruction.
Raping the holy trinity the Sabbath chimes the tunes of Bless
And sanity, the Heavens in their last throes of death.
Gabriel and his arc angels falling ever downwards through The fires of pandemonium to the dark deserted depths of Hell
Their broken bloodstained wings scorched the by raging Inferno
Lay battered by the shores of the styx.
Weary from the battle they seek refuge, bathing their wounds
In the blood of a million matyrs while celebration ringing
In the heavens grows strong the keys to the seven gates of Hell
Lie momenterally unguarded.
Raging flames carved by the innocence of the angel's hearts
Will release forth their wealth of centuries of God loving
Souls once wronged of their destiny of Heaven's golden Palace.
An unseen presence breaths never before pangs of mortal Hatred
And anger deep into the pounding hearts of the angels.
Once more the creature is summoned to deliver a decleration Of war,

At war with Satan!

The angels gather slowly around
The sacred city Hell
Gabriel screams a vengence of the
Land as the angels fell
Matyrs prey disaster for the
Land of hate and scorn
The Angels curse the day the antichrist
Was ever born...




2. RIP RIDE

Run like Hell, in Hell
The deadly race begins
Cyanide, suicide
No prayers or foolish whims
Tonight we'll fight
With glory in our veins
Can't stop us now
Our evil always will reign

The master switch is set
And we must guard the only key
Rip Ride

Satan's speed, our speed
Incarnate pure alive
light up the night
Were living on a wire
We choose you loose
Nobody body catches fire
Were free you'll see
We live by our desires

Riding in the air nocturnal
Living free
Rip Ride

Rip Ride

Run like Hell, in Hell
The deadly race begins
Cyanide, Suicide
No prayers or foolish whims
Tonight we'll fight
With glory in our veins
Can't stop us now
Our evil always will reign

The master switch is set
And we must guard the only key
Rip Ride




3. GENOCIDE

Genocide

Standing in the wings
The reaper waits to play his part
Fear drains the blood
From every pure human heart
The final word is spoken
A lovers last embrace
No distance between life or death
The two are face to face

Take heed the golden dawn

Genocide

Genocide

A prayer from the sinner
For he repents for his soul
Hell becomes his destiny
For heaven is his goal

Sinner, death deceiver
Heathen, disbeleiver

Genocide the cure of mankind
Armageddon patiently decides

Death unveils his gown
The place is truly on fire

You'll see no light
With genocide

Life or death it used to be
But now there is no choice
The blackened skies are filled
With cries of every nations voice
The clouds of death are forming
The judgement day is here
No mercy for the innocent
No time for even fear
The golden dawn turns black

Genocide

Genocide

No place to hide

With genocide




4. CRY WOLF

Placed in the wilderness, naked and cold
The night draws the warmth from my flesh
Howls in the distance
The wolves they catch my scent
They yearn for my blood warm and fresh

But I....

Cannot run, I cannot hide
I'm moments old, yet terrified
Snarling breath is on my face
I am damned in this place

Morning breaks the evening darkness
Daylight sings so loud
Father holds my in his arms
And laughs for he is proud
'All is well' my mother cries
A kiss for me her child
But at night my heart turns black
And calls me to the wild

In the night where the wolf-bane grows
In the night when the full moon glows

Cry wolf...

Alone in your room
By the light of the moon
Your glory is shining so bright
You prey for the day
Oh show me the way
The devil takes over tonight
It's too late, night is here
The time that you dread
The time when you loose all control

Your bodies in pain
You cry in vein
Satan takes over your soul

Cry wolf...

Even a man who's pure of heart
He says his prayers by night
Bane from a wolf when the wolf bane grows
And the moon's full and bright

I cannot resist their call
It strengthens as I age
To the pack to join the feast
And fear immortal rage
Never can I live the life
Of every normal child
Forver I must answer
To the call of the wild

The call of the wild




5. STAND UP AND BE COUNTED

We are the tyrants
Messangers of Satan
We pledge you all
Raise your hands
This is the solstice
Hail legions arise
We'll raise the roof
Touch the skies

Were praying for
The wings of Mayhem to arrive
The screaming fury burns
Brings us alive

Stand up and be counted
Stand up and be counted

We are the demons
Children of fire
Your turn has come
Live your desire
Burning ambition
Were were staying wild
We stand as one never denied

Defyant and proud
We stand together
Metlallic and loud we will fight
Devestation, pure Hell
Legions of the night

Stand up and be counted
Stand up and be counted

Come on, raise your hands

We are the black metal gods

V. E. N. O. Fucking M.

Are you with us
Right until the end?

Stand up and be counted
Stand up and be counted

Come on right at the back
You wanna be counted as well?
Stand up!
And be counted..




6. WOMEN LEATHER AND HELL

Stand aside, loose your pride
I'm at the gates alone
Sourcery, blasphemy
All welcome in my home
I'm leaving
But soon I'm coming back
Believe me
I'm hot on your tracks
Oh yeah...

Through the night
Eagles flight
The Angels kiss my brow
Tempting me with studded heels
The bitch is in heat now
Oh you've got me
That leather smells so sweet
I'm on fire
Breeding sin, breathing lust
Witches spell ohhh...

Women Leather and Hell

Go for it
Come on turn that mother up

Dynamite, is right on time
Sends shivers down my spine
Destiny won't catch me
The choice of death is mine
Salvation is keeping out of sight
Damnation is joining in the fight

Women Leather and Hell

9. WARHEAD (12" VERSION)

Warhead - hear the thunder roar
Warhead - unite the lightning whore

Power burning - Hell & man
Raging torment - Take my hand
Frenzied motions - Reach your soul
Dance the warhead - Fast of slow

Born of thunder
Raised by fire
Call the heavens
By desire

Screaming furnace - Death of life
Demons calling - Chosen wives
Sabbats charming - Out in lust
Chance the warhead - Win or bust

Warhead - hear the thunder roar
Warhead - unite the lightning whore
Warhead - engraved on flesh & bone
Warhead - born of mortal stone




10. LADY LUST (12" VERSION)

Comes alive at midnight on the streets to make her way
In dim lit corners dressed in black the bitch portrayed
Oh what's your thing young man or try her lucky dip
The golden showers free but don't forget the tip

She can be your mama
She can be your child
She can be your slave girl
Boy medusa necrophile

Lady lust

She's never disappointing she's got what you need
From scents to make you buzz or whips to make you bleed
There's nothing she can't do don't be afraid to ask
She's got a farm out back hot souvenirs in flasks

She can take you inside out
She can take you all
She can take you anytime
Just name it big or small

Sexual vampire succubus of carnal lust
She'll suck you dry of love orgasms turn to dust
She loves to wind you up then drop you like a toy
You may look like a man but you feel like a boy

She's got you by the balls
She's got your life
She's got your parents cousins
Children & your wife

Lady lust - oh what a bitch




11. THE SEVEN GATES OF HELL (12" VERSION)

In a dream or a nightmare
When love gives way to hate
The quest begins
For the keys to the seven gates
Ride the wings of a locust
See the wizard cast his spell
Search for the keys to
The seven gates of Hell

In Heavens Hell
Where all evil dwells
And man and beast are one
Conceiled to all
Reveiled to none
Lie those infernal gates
Thoses damned infernal gates

The seven gates of Hell

Hear the cry of the zombie
Raid the body of its soul
The quest for the sacred keys
Has become its goal
Steal the wings of a hydra
Take the sword from the sacred shrine
The strength of the beast
Take the sinners mind

Unveiled in death to the sinner
Written in the ancient book of lies
Hear the demons call
From the crimson waterfall
As the blood rains from the skies

When realities a dream
And every lie is true
In the day when you are me
And the night when I am you

When the flame of life grows cold
We chime the silent bell
And the unborn child is old
The seven gates of Hell

Going through the gates of Hell!

Oh, in Heavens Hell
So many died in vein
They never lived, their tales to tell
None shall find the keys
To set their spirits free
From the seven gates of Hell
The seven gates
The seven gates
The seven gates...

The seven gates of Hell




12. MANITOU (12" VERSION)

Across infernal wastelands
Many miles of sunburnt Hell
Tribes are scattered limbs
And dust all laying as they fell
Open lies the challenge to all
Warriors now men
Let the spirits guide the winds
Until Manitou ascends

Manitou
Manitou
Manitou
Manitou

Watch the unseen burial
Eclipse the blazing skies
Feast the wings of death
With Manitou the soul shall vie
Distant beats the wardance
Echo screams out liberty
Patience stalks the crow
White man's scalp brings victory

Manitou
Manitou
Manitou
Manitou

Mighty be the powers
Of the old medicine man
Whispers of his raindance
Flow across the desert sands
Guardian of the elder spirit
Summoning the storm
Awaiting his arrival
Manitou of flesh is born

Manitou
Manitou
Manitou
Manitou




13. WOMAN (12" VERSION)

Sorceress of old love potions
Brew an orgy strong
Priestess of the highest order
Light the fires of song
Chime the bell
Raising hell
Nothing can go wrong
Trascend in motion make
The wheels of life revolve

Woman

Wicked witch of yesterlands
Bring your spirit here
Tell us of your day of judgement
Reinact your fear
Dance in the flame
Nude without shame
For all to see
I'll take a trip with you
To make your innocence clear

Whore of leisure whore of sin
Name your hourly price
Take me home & give me pleasure
Treat me oh so nice
Legs open wide
Take me inside
I won't throw your dice
I wanna taste the caves of flesh
Within your face




14. DEAD OF THE NIGHT (12" VERSION)

Death throes the seeds of lightning
Thunder cast in rain
Castrate humanity
The woman smells the game
Complete in time intact
And weave another year
Demand apocalypse
And do not despair

In the dead of the night

Danger approaches hold on tight
Ye ancient souls
The hounds are pacing
Out in distant roles
Bring in the alchemist
And screaming mortal witch
Sample the moonlight
And dance with the bitch

In the dead of the night
Children start to die
In a manger of blood
Dead is the night

Death sows the seeds of lightning
Thunder cast in rain
Castrate humanity
The woman smells the game
Complete in time intact
And weave another year
Hold your heads up high
Do not despair
