When the moon is full oh let him cry Kill the priest, the priest must die Smash his face, break his bones Let morbid laughter drown his moans Slave of lies, puppet of god Eat his heart, drink his blood Burning hate will conquer love See the wolf rip to shreds the dove When the moon is full oh let him cry Kill the priest, the priest must die Smash his face, break his bones Let morbid laughter drown his moans
Mountains engulfed by darkness Campfires blazing in the night Ten thousand warriors gathered The fires their only light Now let the sacrificial blood flow To appease the war gods A great battle is at hand We must fight against the odds The enemy awaits us Ahead lies victory or death Steel cuts through flesh Breathe your last breath Blood flows everywhere The woods are turning red Spears fly and hammers clash My sword severs your head Force of life and omen of death Blood colours my sword red We find glory on this battlefield Where so many fought and bled Once every man must die If not by the spear by old age Worthy are only honour and pride So on the battlefield I rage
Oude toortsen zijn opnieuw ontstoken Onze ketenen voor altijd gebroken Niet langer door valse moraal geknecht Halen wij met vuur en staal ons recht (chorus) Bloed vloeit in de sneeuw Hoort 't gebrul van Neêrlands leeuw Ziet de laffe verraders beven Beter vrij te sterven dan geknecht te leven De slavenkoning en diens volgelingen Zullen wij verslaan met magische ringen Tot Wodan bidden wij andermaal Onze zielen en zwaarden hard als staal (chorus) Door mist en regen, wind en kou Rijden wij trots, gelaten zo grauw Grimmig en o zo vastberaden Ditmaal kennen wij geen genade Donar zal ons weer beschermen Onze vijanden zullen kermen Onze zwaarden rood van bloed en roest Nu gebeurt wat gebeuren moest (chorus) Het rijk van Jehovah is gevallen Ziet de lijken van zijn vazallen Gezuiverd is nu onze geboortegrond Ziet de nieuwe heidense morgenstond
Into the noblest blood the Master's seed was sown Married to gain Hungary's throne Evil's incarnation, supreme in her day Her deeds beyond words to her people's dismay More than six times a hundred maidens fair Lured into the countess' castle unaware Dark lady of Hungary obsessed by blood The virgins trapped in Hell cries in vain to god Shed your blood oh virgins pure To feed the wrath of Satan's whore You've been chosen to let your blood To make the mistress live for evermore Gallons of blood she took for vampiric abuse And for years nobody dared to accuse But too many virgins vanished on her road to despair Butchered by cruel servants in the countess' lair Parents wailing while their daughters disappear Her people for ages dwelt in terror and fear Until at last she was caught and tried Convicted and lacking her bloody diet she died Cut off the source of virgins pure Who fed the wrath of Satan's whore Yet deep within her castle's endless halls Linger still Erzsébet's desperate calls
Blasting through the blackened sky Knowing not but knowing still Lost all sense of place and time Yet filled with an evil thrill Awakening in the black cathedral Departing the dimensional gates No need for any explanation Knowing the task that awaits Full moon shines in utter darkness The hour of midnight drawing near Tonight 13 the bells will chime Tonight the holy tremble in fear Behold the 7 innocent maidens Behold the 7 velvet altars Behold the 7 southern crosses Behold . . . Behold the 7 evil priests Behold the 7 silver chalices Behold the 7 silver daggers Behold . . . Sacrifices have been made, thunder and lightning appear Rejoice in hideous blasphemy, know that the time is near The chosen hail the Master well, lusting for hate and scorn Crying out in evil ecstasy, "the Antichrist is born!"
In tijden reeds lang vervlogen Aanbaden wij onze ware goden Gebroken werd de Romeinse macht Met moed en eer, met trouw en kracht Maar door ons koude staal verslagen Bleven d'indringers ons belagen Met een vals geloof en zonder gevecht Onze voorvad'ren alsnog geknecht Waarlijk, de godenschemering volbracht Hamer verruild voor kruis, trots voor onmacht Maar Hij die voor wijsheid een oog heeft gelaten Wist dat Zijn volk hun goden zouden verlaten En Hij die doolt wilde hen behoeden voor deze val Dus brouwden de goden een magische gift in hun hal Om het oude geloof diep verborgen in hun zielen te bewaren Ook al zou de Christus heersen, vele en vele jaren (chorus) De gift der goden Overleefde de doden De gift der goden Weerstond de geboden Talloze eeuwen gekomen en gegaan De gift heeft barre tijden doorstaan Geslacht op geslacht doorgegeven De verborgen machten zullen leven Het valse geloof teruggedrongen Oeroude liederen wederom gezongen Het heidense vuur zal weer branden De tempels herrijzen in onze landen (chorus)
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 (chorus) 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 (chorus)
When nothing was all I was already in the void I was, am and shall be When you have long been destroyed My names are feared by the weak But the strong always worship me I am darkness and bring you light I am slavery and set you free I inspire the chosen elite Of your miserable human race Who achieve works of greatness Who dare look into my face Many of you deny me blindly Because you don't dare pray to me I am death and therefore life Without me you wouldn't be I am the pain in the heart of him Whose name I cannot speak I am the terror of the pious The vilest horrors of the meek I am eternal hatred I am fire and I am ice I have thousands of names I only laugh at your puny cries I expose the white-light hypocrisy But knowledge has a price You are man, you are nothing Worship me or perish in lies
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!
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? (chorus) 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 (chorus)
I sold my soul in a cold & dark past Infernal contract signed with evil blood Gave 1000 years of earthly pleasures Now I hear my Master calling me His child I see the bridge glowing in the dark Across the bridge of death I must walk A godforsaken path to the eternal fire Final part of the evil road I walked Before long I will enter Hell and...... ......KNEEL BEFORE THE MASTER'S THRONE Dark desires of lust & evil in mind & soul At last in Hell I will meet the Countess Reward for lives of total darkness Unholy 13 lives I lived on earth Faithfully spreading the Horned One's gospel Crossed the bridge I enter His kingdom Halls of Hell full of fire & brimstone Sword of thunder & steel still by my side Before long I will see my Master and...... ......KNEEL BEFORE THE MASTER'S THRONE
