Return of the Axeman tracks

Lyrics

1. METAL SLAUGHTER

The storms of power in the sky
Proclaim the time has come
To slay the bastards who deny
To feed the slaughter gods

Witches dancing, flames arise
Our victory's on sight
You'll pay in blood for all your lies
For killing is our right

With iron spiked leather fists
We march into the fight
True metal army, unchained beasts
The rulers of the night

Relentlessly we hack and slay
The ones who hide the truth
'Cos metal is for what we stay
The axeman comes for you

Metal slaughter
We have this will to kill
Metal slaughter
To kill on sight the ones who deceive

Raise your weapons to the sky
Swear the vows of war
March on to the final fight
Fear won't make us fall

Relentlessly we hack and slay
The ones who hide the truth
With metal running through our veins
Our rage will fall on you

Metal slaughter
We have this will to kill
Metal slaughter
To kill on sight the ones who deceive




2. HELD HIGH THE CHAOS SWORD

Temptation beheld me
I've fallen, I've lost my throne
Forgotten, exiled
A king with no crown to wear

Condemned to the darkside
Doom calling out my name
Forces that twist my mind
Cursed black steel in my hand

My soul now withers away
Damned by my own hand
Voices inside my head
Hear what the demons say

Held high the Chaos sword! (x4)

The power inside me
It gives back what once was mine
I'm back now avenged
The white wolf with crimson eyes

Possessed by the fury
To battle we're marching forth
I'm cursed forever
In my hands I wiled the storm

My soul has withered away
Damned by my own hand
Voices inside my head
Hear what the demons say

Held high the Chaos sword!
Held high the Chaos sword
Held high the Chaos sword
Held high the Chaos sword
Held high the Chaos sword




3. THE AXEMAN (OMEN COVER)

In the days of darkness men
Feared not the sword and the lance
Nor did he fear the beast of fire...
He feared...
The Axeman!

Once we lose our precious dream
There's nothing left to fight
Now you are bound and gagged one
Last meal is your final right
Many have tried you're not the only one
Waiting for that final mourn
The future's set dawn is coming
Time is now the mask will be worn

[Chorus:]
Bow down to the axeman hooded figure of mortal fear
Bow down to the axeman sun is rising time is near

Darkness fills your parting soul
Mystical power was yours alone
You stole the king's crown of gold
Claiming his kingdom for your own
Good and evil clash in battle armies
Fight into the night
Steel and iron ring out the warning
Powers on the side of right

[Chorus]

The sign of the king unites us all
Our fight for freedom rages on
Against warriors of light
Many fall our dreams of peace are not all gone
Once we lose that precious dream
There's nothing left to fight
Now you are bound and gagged
One last meal is your final right

[Chorus]




4. BLACK RIDERS OF DESTRUCTION

Chained down and condemned to die
I wait for my last time
The axe awaits to cut my head
To end my thread of crimes
My hands stained with the innocent
The blood of many lives
The circle's closed, hell awaits
Death on fullmoon's night

Bloodshed
Execution
Pain
Suffering

The sound of nightmares in my brain
Visions from beyond
Fiery torsos without heads
The horror coming forth
Tonight my body will be dead
But free will be my soul
To feast on those, the ones who fell
To ride forevermore

Nightmare
Retribution
Fullmoon
Alive again

Fire coming from within my soul
Ripping flesh, my body can't go on
Flaming steed becomes a part of me
For this killing spree's my destiny

Bloodshed, execution
Pain, suffering
Nightmare, retribution
Fullmoon, alive again

Black rider of destruction
Revenge forever rides
Black rider of destruction
Assassin in the night
Black rider of destruction
The blade attacks unheard
Black rider of destruction
Brings death across the land

Now the moon is shining in the sky
Blood will flow as someone has to die
Remember all your way through life
I'm the last that will see your eyes

Bloodshed, execution
Pain, suffering
Nightmare, retribution
Fullmoon, alive again

Black rider of destruction
Revenge forever rides
Black rider of destruction
Assassin in the night

Black rider of destruction
The blade attacks unheard
Black rider of destruction
Brings death across the land

It's fullmoon night
Our terror strikes
We wait in the fog ready to rise
It burns your mind
You're paralyzed
The forces of evil again will ride

Don't try to fight
Death drawing nigh
The headless avengers, to hell we're bind
You'll lose your life
Tonight you'll die
Your blood will forever run by our side

It's fullmoon night
The terror strikes
In the fog something wicked waits to rise
It burns my mind
I'm paralyzed
The forces of evil again will ride

No will to fight
Death drawing nigh
The headless avengers, to hell they're bind
I'll lose my life
Tonight I'll die
My blood will forever run by their side

Now the moon is shining in the sky
Blood will flow as someone has to die
Remember all your way through life
I'm the last that will see your eyes

Bloodshed, execution
Pain, suffering
Nightmare, retribution
Fullmoon, alive again

Black rider of destruction
Revenge forever rides
Black rider of destruction
Assassin in the night
Black rider of destruction
The blade attacks unheard
Black rider of destruction
Brings death across the land




5. FROM THE DEEPEST HELL

Unholy summoning chants
Foul, nauseating winds
Arcane scriptures of madness
Darkness reigns supreme

Hidden black circle
The goat stands in pride
The legions are waiting
Bloody sacrifice

Obscene desecration
Praise the hellish beast
Altars of madness
A monument of sin

Covenant of witchery
Raise the horns in blasphemy
Blood and fear, death and hell

Morbid rites of heresy
Killing ways of ecstasy
Horror for the souls who fell

From the deepest hell
Comes the evil forth
Where the demons dwell
The perversion takes form

Hidden black circle
The goat stands in pride
The legions are waiting
Bloody sacrifice

Listen to the bestial cries
Bounded creatures of the night
Resound the evil ancient tongue

As the storm begins to rise
Terror fills the souls who die
Against the light the demon song

From the deepest hell
Comes the evil forth
Where the demons dwell
The perversion takes form

Covenant of witchery
Raise the horns in blasphemy
Blood and fear, death and hell

Morbid rites of heresy
Killing ways of ecstasy
Horror for the souls who fell

Listen to the bestial cries
Bounded creatures of the night
Resound the evil ancient tongue

As the storm begins to rise
Terror fills the souls who die
Against the light the demon song

From the deepest hell
Comes the evil forth
Where the demons dwell
The perversion takes form
