Gods of yore I hear your voice It´s singing in my blood Wolves are howling your holy song I see your faces in the stars Gods of yore I worship you Your images float my mind Your temples will surely rise again Your likeness recast in stone Gods of yore I draw your signs Sigils of power and might Dormant forces awake again Ancient steel is forged anew Gods of yore I sing your praise Your names ring through the air Abandoning their modern ways Your people turn back to you Gods of yore I drink to you The mead flows in your name Ancient fires are lit again Again we sacrifice to you Gods of yore I´ll come to you Your dwellings in the sky I hail the true gods of my race Forever I am yours

In the mist of a winter dawn, the trumpets sound Blood and fire and death await us on the battleground The gods of war are smiling upon their kin this day Into glorious battle we ride as black prayers we say (chorus) The trumpets of dawn are calling Soon hammers shall be falling Ride to war In the mist of a winter dawn, the trumpets sound With axe and sword and scythe we will stand our ground In the cold winter sun our blades of metal do glow Mixed with morning dew our enemies’ blood will flow (chorus) In the mist of a winter dawn, the trumpets sound In bloody battle honour and glory will be found Before the sun has fully risen victory will be ours We shall burn the spoils to thank the dark powers (chorus)

I am the infidel I stand against your creed My venom will poison your sanctimonious seed I am the infidel Reason is my name I will make you bow down in shame You may burn my book You may ban my play You may censor my art Never shall I give way I am the infidel I see beyond your lies I fight the god who never hears your cries I am the infidel Knowledge is my name I will expose your sick religious game You may burn my painting You may ban my song You may censor my poem I shall prove you wrong (chorus) My hammer shall crush the house of your god Never shall I be shackled by your false creed My sword shall tear down your altar of lies Never your retarded commandments shall I heed I am the infidel I am the wolf at your gate I will show your god is not so great I am the infidel Sanity is my name I will forever quench your zealous flame You may burn my temple You may ban my belief You may censor my speech Nothing I give you but grief (chorus)

I slept with virgins, I slept with whores I was a beggar, I wore a crown I have seen myth fade into history I was there when Troy’s walls came down I lived in peace, I went to war I succeeded, I have failed I have seen religions rise and fall I was there when Christ was nailed (chorus) I’m a child of the millennia I lived throughout the ages I’m a child of the millennia Seen all of history’s pages I have seen the heights of Heaven I have seen the depths of Hell But was it real what I have seen Or an illusion, a dream, a spell I lived pious, I was a blasphemer I experienced glory, I endured pain I have seen rulers conquer and perish I was there when Ceasar was slain I walked the desert, I sailed the sea I spoke the truth, I have lied I have seen empires come and go I was there when the Romans died (chorus) Each century only brings more questions Even though I have been tired for ages But there is no escape from existence So I travel on through history’s pages

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 (chorus) 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' (chorus) 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 (chorus)

Hear me, oh you flock of sheep My sermon you had better hear I preach the escape from the light The one god you need never fear Heed me, oh you puny humans My sermon will enlighten you I preach defiance and opposition Listen well and you may join too Look into the brazier And see the web of lies The slander of the light See through the disguise Hear now of the beauty of hatred Listen to the majesty of pride Hear of all the glorious sins And above all the Master’s might Shed now the shroud of hypocrisy Or forever be a slave to the light Embrace all vices and serve Him Join the dark beasts of the night Look into the brazier Let the fire illuminate The splendour of the dark And pass through the gate Hear me, oh you flock of sheep My sermon you had better hear I preach the escape from the light The one god you need never fear Leave now all illusions of goodness Of peace and justice and equality Spit in the face of the false prophets Indulge forever in brutal blasphemy Look into the brazier And see the web of lies The slander of the light See through the disguise Look into the brazier Let the fire illuminate The splendour of the dark And pass through the gate

A fire burns within The flame of steel and hate I stand against the world Solely guided by my fate No possibility of retreat My steel will soon be tried My courage will come through My glory will not be denied (bridge) Fighting with metal, the power of steel Victory or death, to none I shall kneel Blood will be shed, my enemies fear The whole world, my war cry will hear (chorus) Alone against the world The courage to stand tall Alone against the world My enemies will surely fall My armour blinds my foes Shining metal for all to see The time of wrath has come All will die or bow before me Dark knowledge at my side Wicked powers to prevail The light forever to wane The forces of good shall fail Much hardship I will endure To overthrow all conformity Mighty steel will bring victory Eternal glory waits for me (bridge) (chorus)

Thermopylae 05:58
Amidst the great deeds of Xerxes and his Greek foes All the valour of the second of the Persian wars Stands out a single battle as the most heroic The defence of a mountain pass by a Spartan force A strategic error left several hundred Spartan men Surrounded by an overwhelming Persian might For two days they managed to hold on to the pass Led by king Leonidas to the last man they did fight Thermopylae The Spartans were exceptional in their courage Whatever number their foe they would not retreat With hearts of steel and incredible battle prowess They managed to achieve such an amazing feat Even though the Spartans lost this great battle Time was gained for the Greek armies and fleet The progress of the vast Persian army was halted And the Greeks were prepared their foe to meet Thermopylae At Salamis the Persian fleet was largely sunk And at Plataea the Greek army proved the best It was the beginning of the empire’s downfall Establishing the Greek dominance of the west

Behind the black walls lies the city of hate Unspeakable horrors behind its black gate Evil far worse than where Sodom once stood A city defined by the utter absence of good Murder and rape and unspeakable desires All the city's inhabitants are killers and liars The populace revels in incest and depravity There is no god here just glorious immorality No one is innocent in the city of the depraved Harlots are slaughtered and children are enslaved Fathers rape their daughters and kill the unborn Behind these walls all revel in hate and scorn Virtue is unknown here only lust and hate are real The citizens only know the dark urges they feel Kindness and humanity are kept outside the walls In this city the populace heeds the Master's calls (chorus) City of Satan Citadel of hate Darkness and doom Hell's unholy gate City of Satan Stronghold of lust Irreverance and sin Paragon of disgust Suffering and torture, decadance and blasphemy Orgies of hate and violence, total indecency Animals are raped and the sacrificed to Hell Mothers fellate their sons and witches cast a spell City streets are littered with mutilated corpses Every night blood and semen flow in black masses The flag of hate proudly waves above the black walls While orgies continue in this infernal city's halls (chorus)

I am the one who was chosen by the gods To unleash a holy war upon mankind I am the one shall fight against the odds Never will I rest 'til my last fiend is dead I will storm the walls of hypocrisy and lies I will kill those who dare to defy At any cost I will conquer or die Can you see the fires of hate in my eyes Chosen by the gods To unleash a holy war Against all the odds I will soon take my place amongst the gods Years have gone since I received my holy task Years of endurance and tremendous sacrifice But I will succeed I will taste victory And I will buy those who tried to fight me Ride with thousands and fight against millions They will surely die or end up as slaves World domination or a disgraceful death Cold and nameless grave should I ever fail Chosen by the gods I will taste victory Against all the odds I will soon take my place amongst the gods I am the rock that stands in the sea I am the eagle that flies beyond reach I am the old wall that cannot be breached I am the wind that will bring you to your knees Chosen by the gods The rock in the sea Against all the odds I will soon take my place amongst the gods

A morbid organ fills the chapel of doom With horrible sounds, litanies of gloom Oh! Lady of darkness, the Goat is so near Are you in trance, or filled with fear? Are you a victim, of an unspeakable rite Or a black priestess sacrificing at night Maybe you are trapped within a spell Who will ever know, who will ever tell? (chorus) Where must I travel? Where must I go? To find your soul, or maybe my own? Will I find you where eagles fly? Or to find you, must I die? Will you fly on the first night of May To the Harz or even further away? Will I ever be able to set you free Or will you be damned eternally? Caught in a spell outside my life I beg of thee, Master, let her be my wife! The horns, the sign, the blood, the tears We all walk in shadows of ancient fears (chorus)

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 (chorus)

Berge ragen in Finsternis Flammen durchlodern die Nacht Tausende Krieger versammelt Die Feuer erhellen die Wacht Bald wird das Opferblut fließen Der Kriegsgötter Gunst zu erfleh’n Die große Schlacht vor Augen Der Übermacht widersteh’n Das Feld der Ehre wartet Vor uns Sieg oder Tod Stahl schneidet Fleisch Ein letzter Atemzug . . . Blut soweit das Auge reicht Die Wälder färben sich rot! Speere fliegen, Hämmer schlagen dumpf Mein Schwert hackt ab Deinen Kopf Die Kraft des Lebens, das Zeichen des Tod’s Blut klebt an meinem Schwert Unser die Ehre dieses Feldes Wo viele stritten und fielen Sterben muß jeder irgendwann Durch Alter wenn nicht durch den Speer Von Wert sind nur Ehre und Stolz Furchtlos stürz’ Ich in die Schlacht!

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)
