1. SEVEN GATES OF HELL

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




2. DIE HARD

Satan, Father
Help me from this grave
Demons, Warriors
Ever be my slaves
'Cause I can't reason
With men and mortal fools
They will die hard,
Hear the golden rule

Die Hard
Legions iron and steel
Die Hard
Men of war reveiled
Die Hard
Captors of the Brave
Die Hard
Die Hard

Sinner, liar
Guard your crown of thorns
Priestess, Parson
Live your life of scorn
I can ride the fires
Of Hell and blasphemy
We can grow strong
Satanic royalty

Evil, angels
Vultures of the night
Ride the wings of Hades
Death is on our side
Furnace burnin' bright
'Cause we ain't getting tired




3. WELCOME TO HELL

Fight, we will fight right,
Living low in a world of our own,
Destined to live right fight,
We're taking hell as our home,
Burning lives burning,
Asking me for the mercy of god,
Ancient cries crying,
Acting fast upon the way of the dog,
Welcome to hell,
Welcome to hell,
Welcome to hell,
Welcome to hell

Kill we will kill death,
Masturbating on the deeds we have done,
Hell commands death kill,
Argue not of feel the death of sun,
Burning lives burning,
Asking me for the mercy of god,
Ancient cries crying,
Acting fast upon the way of the dog,
Welcome to hell,
Welcome to hell,
Welcome to hell,
Welcome to hell

Leave your souls at his feet,
Kiss the flames
Scorn defeat

Die we won't die live,
Our choice of difference is what you'll never know,
Mortal voids live die,
Buried deep beneath the fall of the snow,
Burning lives burning,
Asking me for the mercy of god,
Ancient cries crying,
Acting fast upon the way of the dog,
Welcome to hell,
Welcome to hell,
Welcome to hell,
Welcome to hell.




4. LEAVE ME IN HELL

Midnight six sixty six
Torment beastial sex
Mother screaming in pain
Father rules hell's domain

I don't want to be born
I don't want it
Leave me in hell

Danger gold pentagram
Sacrifice full blooded ram
Karma Hell bears its child
Reaper sharpens his scythe

I don't want to be born
I don't want it
Leave me in hell

Hail Satanic Majesties

Sabbath my crucifix
Evil chief satanist
Danger possessed by hell
Master cast me a spell

I don't want to be born
I don't want it
Leave me in hell




5. COUNTESS BATHORY

Welcoming the virgins fair, to live a noble life
In the castle known to all - the Count's internal wife
She invites the peasants with endless lavish foods
But, when evening spreads it wings, she rapes them of their blood
Countess Bathory
Countess Bathory

All day long the virgins sit and feast on endless meals
The Countless laughs and sips her wine - her skin doth crack and peel
But when nighttime fills the air one must pay the price
The Countess takes her midnight bath with blood that once gave life
Countess Bathory
Countess Bathory

Living in her self styled Hell, the Countess dressed in black
Life's so distant - death's so near - no blood to fury time back
The castle walls are closing in, she's crippled now with age
Welcomes death with open arms - the reaper turns the page
Countess Bathory
Countess Bathory




6. BURIED ALIVE

I'm alive but dead, awake but asleep
As friend gather round and mourners they weep
My mind thinks of all the things I have done
My body is cold but my heart beat goes on
And on... and on

As they lower me down into that hole in the ground
I scream out for help but they hear not a sound
I fear at the lid, my fingers they bleed
Is this happening to me or is it just a dream
Summon the dead…
Baphomets call...
Blood on my hands...

"Let me out of here"

My bones are decayed, my flesh it doth rot
I'm lying in silk, take the lid off this box
My lungs gasp for air, my eyes scream for sight
I promise the rise of my body this night
Summon the dead...
Baphomets call...
Blood on my hands…
Screaming in torment...
I'm felling you all...
Take heed of my plea...
Answer my call...
I'm gonna be free...




7. DON'T BURN THE WITCH

The witches brew a pot of hate
With lizard, but and man
With a smile they laugh their spells
Astir with wretched hand
Calling demons baphomet
And mephistopheles
The tattered firyres cackle
As their mortal victims bleed
Chorus don't burn the witch
The ways of hell aren't wrong
Don't burn the witch
Let them brew their song

The witches of the blackened arts
Are cunning, cruel and mean
Persecuted by religion
God the man unseen
Beastial malevolence
Is chartered in their bones
Leave the unreal house of God
And burn in hell at home
Chorus eye of lizard
Wing of bat
Testicle of man
Tongue of eagle
Brain of rat
Jesus Christ's left hand

The witches make the voodoo doll
A toy taboo in heaven
They dance around the pentagram
In search of rape by satan
Leave the heart and blood of men
In cauldrons laced in sin
Add the arsenic, hemlock, pus
Triumph takes the wings




8. IN NOMINE SATANAS

In the name of Satan
We'll acheive our goal
With the blessings of Hades
We'll outlive our role
Through the power of Hellfire
We will gather our strength
With the blood of mere mortals
Our thirst will be quenched

In the name of Satan
Great things can be done
Through the lore of the demons
Satan's song can be sung
Gather around my Legions
For in time you'll see
Mortals screaming for mercy
At the king for world war three

Hail Satanas
In nominai Deinochous
Satanas Lucifre excelsis

In the name of Satan
We'll take what we need
Rock and roll damnation
Let your heart bleed
Sensing the distaster
So we'll blame our hate
Hell bore Satan's child
To use you as our bait

Hear infernal legions plead
As Satan sings his songs of war
As I see mortal corpses rise
Up from the depths
I care not for the whore
I shall destroy the priests
Bound in chains and demned in Hell
I shall n'er release their souls
For the internal torment always reigns
Summon legions of the night
For we are now as one...




9. SCHITZO

Children gather round him,
Mystery surrounds him,
What terrible secret does he hide,
An ordinary man,
Doing what he can,
But what goes on inside his mind.

The night draws nigh,
With darkened sky's,
Axe blade shines,
Midnight chimes.

Morning comes around,
Headless bodies found,
Our little friend just sits and smiles ha ha,
Take them home and love them,
Read the bible to them,
Be sure to kiss each one goodnight.

But come the night,
You'll freeze with fright,
Axe drawn high,
Another dies.

Creeping and searching for victims unknowing,
What fate doth await round each corner,
The take in the night,
He's got you in his sight.

Now that I have warned you,
Always look behind you,
You'll never know just who'll be there,
That harmless looking dear,
May be the one to fear,
So never trust those you don't know.

But come the night,
You'll freeze with fright,
Axe drawn high,
The bastards die




10. NIGHTMARE

By the shores of the ageing sea
Fools scream out destiny
They speak of vengeance and your gods
into the fire - out of the flame
The beast awakes - thousands are slayen
The mystic reads - forgotten tales
All hallows hail - your falling waves

Nightmare - this is your prize eternal
Nightmare - make no disguise infernal
Nightmare - you'll realize you lost in
Nightmare - Nightmare

Inside explodes - the butcher strikes
You'd love to die - your baby cries
Lead candles burn - just a decoy
The giant child - your his new toy

In the eye of the lions teeth
Your flesh becomes his meat
You lie devoured still full of life
Temples of ice - white desert breeze
The golden sun - prepares to freeze
Dying of thirst - drowing in pain
You wake in sleep - it starts again

Nightmare
Nightmare
Nightmare




11. BLACK METAL

Black is the night, metal we fight
Power amps set to explode
Energy screams, magic and dreams
Satan records the first note.
We chime the hell, chaos and hell
Metal for maniacs pure.
Fast melting steel, fortune on wheels
For black metal
Lay down your sold to the gods rock 'n' roll

Freaking so wild, nobody's mild
Giving it all that you've got.
Wild is so right, metal tonight
Faster than over the top.
Open the door, enter hells core
Black is the code for tonight
Atomic force, feel no remorse
Trunk up the amps now it's night
Black metal
Lay down your soul to the gods rock 'n' roll
Metal ten fold through the deadly black hole
Riding hells stallions bareback and free
Faking our chances with raw energy

Come ride the night with us
Rock hard and fight
United my legions we stand
Freak hard and wild for us
Give up your souls
Live for the guest satans band

Against the adds, black metal gods
Fight to achieve our goal
Tasting a spell, leather and hell
Black metal gods rock 'n' roll
Building up steam, nuclear screams
War-heads are ready to fight
Black leather hounds, faster than sound
Metal our purpose in life.
Black metal
Lay down your soul to the gods rock 'n' roll
Black metal




12. WITCHING HOUR

Come hear the moon is calling,
The witching hour draws near,
Come hear the bell is tolling,
Mortals run in fear,
Prepare the altar now and hear the virgin cry,
Hold fast the sacrafice,
For now it's the time to die,
All hell breaks loose,
Hell's breaking loose.

Unveil the pentagram,
And feel the demons lust,
Come watch the holy men,
Who look on in disgust,
Come taste blood,
And feel the heat of satan's breath,
Look in the sky's and see,
The warriors of death,
All hell breaks loose,
Hell's breaking loose,
Witching hour.

Our work is now complete,
The blood runs fast and free,
And satan takes his bride,
And cry's of blasphemy,
All hell rejoices at the child,
That she will bear,
And satans only son,
Shall be the worlds despair,
All hell breaks loose,
Hell's breaking loose,
Witching hour.
