Track Name: Hell's Rock & Roll
The devil sat down
To hear the gospel choir
It made him sick
But kindled a desire
To have His own music
Hymns sung to Him
Music for the dark
Songs of sin

So the devil inspired
Some long-haired men
To dress in black
And play on ten
With razor guitars
And thundering bass
With pounding drums
And screams like crazed

Heavy Metal - Hell's rock & roll
Black Metal - Hell's rock & roll
Heavy Metal - Hell's rock & roll
Black Metal - Hell's rock & roll

Now the devil sits down
To hear the metal band
It makes Him smile
Evil made a stand
So we play on
Possessed by Hell
We just can't stop
It's the metal spell

Track Name: Son Of The Dragon
Prince of many faces, born beyond the forests
Both mediæval warlord, and renaissance prince
Master of cruel tactics, and ruler of justice
Heir of great warriors, sworn the Dragon Oath

Hail, impaler! Son of the Dragon
Hail, impaler! Prince of Walachia
Hail, impaler! Lord of the stake
Hail, impaler! Son of the Dragon

Ascending his throne, avenging his father's murder
Dealings with the devil, impaling his enemies
After Constantinople's fall, sole protector of Europe
20.000 Turks on stakes, 'the forest of the impaled'


After a life of blood and glory
The reaper finally came for Vlad
Defeated not on the battlefield
A traitor's knife in his back

Death did not defeat him, vampire lord supreme
His blood lived on, in Erzsébet's veins
His soul still lives on, his memory we hail
Eternal hero of the west, example to us all

Track Name: Dokkum 754
Ziet het verleden en ken de toekomst
Wat eens was zal wederom zijn

Een man loopt door het woud
Zijn haar is kort, gehuld in bruine pij
Op zijn borst een houten kruis
Een vijand, een indringer, dat is hij!

Hij spreekt over een vreemde god
Hij spreekt van vrede en vergeven
Maar kapt onze Wodanseik
Bonifatius zal niet lang meer leven
Spoedig voelt d'indringer onze toorn
Een bloedige overval zonder genade
Zijn heilige boek biedt geen bescherming
Tegen onze barbaarse zwaarden

De prediker der leugens is geslagen
Met hem al zijn metgezellen
Na bloed vloeit bier, een vreugdevuur
Laat dit allen doorvertellen
Maar wee! de predikers blijven komen
Beschermd door grote troepen soldaten
Doop of dood wordt onze keuze
O! hebben de goden ons verlaten?

Al dit gebeurde lang geleden
Na meer dan 1000 jaren pijn
Zijn wij terug om af te rekenen
Wat eens was zal wederom zijn!
Track Name: On The Wings Of Azazel (live)
Those who follow the 'celestial light'
Enslave their souls to illusions
Self-denial fed by holy fright
Righteous compulsion where Yahweh reigns
False prophets preach ancient fears
Will thy soul be free from chains?

On the wings of Azazel
Those who fear shall perish
Across dimensional boundaries
Into the dark reality

Those who embrace the 'mournful gloom'
Dare to see beyond false prophecies
In Lilith's night shine shrines of doom
Walk in the shadow of the Goat
Enter the fire of Moloch's empire
Join the chosen, swear the oath
