Track Name: Starborn
Through darkness I’ve transcended
Beyond the primordial sky
Traversing dimensions
To origins of infinite time

Vast, uncharted kingdoms
Clad in dust and gravity
Worlds dissolve around me
Chapters torn from history

Born of burning light
Cosmic flame
From astral fragments I became
The seeds of time, the laws defied
Starborn creation

Damned to burn across the aeons
Immemorial existence

Born of burning light
Cosmic flame
From astral fragments I became
The seeds of time, the laws defied
Starborn creation
(Creation)

I engage the ever-night with ancient fire

“Rushing forth in myriads,
as to wage war
with the lines of darkness”
[P. J. Bailey]

Sky to sky, weaving the web of infinity
Through the endless void
Godless tide, drifting so old and ethereal
A celestial force

Across the firmament
Rising from afar
Cradled by the eternal labyrinth of space
The firstborn star
Track Name: Tale of the Wayward Voyager
Braving the cold
The old familiar storming of
Wind and snow
Ripping from the isle

With sail and oar
I cross unending ocean as
Times before
My back to the wind

Onward to crystal shores and soaring mountainside
Into the frost of northern breath
“Never say die!”

With every season time is withering
Over perilous lands I roam
Far is the passage through abysmal seas
The ever-stretching shadow of home

Wayward I wonder
As ravens are soaring
Through dark skies aloft

The sparks on high
Streak across the canvas of
Winter sky
Cloaked by the night

Star-fields glare
A symphony of celestial
Stratosphere
Polaris guides




The matron of North, empress of eternal ice
Brings forth frostbitten flesh

Spiraled in darkness, haunted by echoing songs
from those who drowned below

Claimed by the sea, so numbing and deep
At the heart of the storm

Felled by the wind, my sail torn to rags
A voyager I am no more

Cyclonic thunder, fire-bolts strike
Pitching the ship to its side


Snow-blinding maelstrom, blizzardous rage
Death-bound to my blackened grave

And as I feel my blood begin to freeze
Never again will I return home

Wayward I wonder
As ravens are soaring
Through dark skies aloft

Braving the cold…

Take me home
Track Name: Fed to the Wolves
Broken, starved, war-torn and bled,
Together still we stand
But in the face of blinding fear,
You turned your backs and ran

Reaping riches in great store
By greed you’re led astray
Like daggers stabbed into our backs
The oath you have betrayed

There comes a time when we decide
To be the slave or wield the lash
You've traded in your hero’s pride
Our brotherhood now burnt to ash

Desire and weakness
Your fortune is made
From trust to betrayal
Deceiver

Screams fill the sky
On your knees you beg
Nowhere to run
To the wolves, you’re fed

A traitor dies a thousand times
Before his death is met
Penance in blood
To the wolves, you’re fed


Winter's sign, the first flake falls
Upon this barren field
Surrendered to the will of Gods
Before this blade you kneel

Cowards slain, in fear they fled
By right, we claim our pound of flesh
Eradicated, hunted prey
Unleash the baying hounds of death

In silence and sorrow
You're buried in shame
The circling vultures await you

Screams fill the sky
On your knees you beg
Nowhere to run
To the wolves, you’re fed


A traitor dies a thousand times
Before his death is met
Penance in blood
To the wolves, you’re

Fed to the wolves
Fed to the wolves
Your death is met
Fed to the wolves
Fed to the wolves
You’re fed

Majesty is yours
Never to feel again
Your place in Odin's court is sacrificed

The wolves will consume
Vengeance must be attained
No rest until their bloodline has run dry

Eye for an eye

Screams fill the sky
On your knees you beg
Nowhere to run
To the wolves, you’re fed

A traitor dies a thousand times
Before his death is met
Penance in blood
To the wolves, you’re fed
Track Name: Unholy Harbingers of War
Time and time again
The horns of battle sound across the land
Bringing forth the tides of war

By the spirit of the wolf,
and One-Eye’s will, our legions show no fear
Heralding no master nor king

Riding on the ageless winds
Bound by oath - sworn to the end
Enemies, hear our call
Born for battle, all shall fall

Hail to the gods of steel
Who reign on high – empyreal
Guardians guide our swords
Unholy harbingers of war

From dusk ‘till dawn
Their lives are crushed into oblivion
Fates are sealed, their death revealed

Pagan blood runs through our veins
Let pride and glory be our destiny
Make your stand, no turning back

Brothers of freedom arise!
(Rise!)
Never surrender
Kneel before none
Invictus!

Take the world by storm
Show them death and domination
Piled high are the mountains of the slain
Conquered with an iron fist

Riding on the ageless winds
Bound by oath - sworn to the end
Enemies, hear our call
Born for battle, all shall fall

Hail to the gods of steel
Who reign on high – empyreal
Guardians guide our swords
Unholy harbingers of war

Unholy harbingers of war
Unholy harbingers
Harbingers of war
Track Name: Hail and Kill (Manowar Cover)
Brothers I am calling from the Valley of the Kings
With nothing to atone
A dark march lies ahead, together we will ride
Like thunder from the sky
May your sword stay wet like a young girl in her prime
Hold your hammers high

Blood and death are waiting like a raven in the sky
I was born to die
Hear me while I live
As I look into your eyes
None shall hear a lie
Power and dominion are taken by the will
By divine right hail and kill

Hail, hail, hail and kill,
Hail and kill
Hail, hail, hail and kill,
Hail and kill

My father was a wolf
I'm a kinsman of the slain
Sworn to rise again
I will bring salvation, punishment and pain
The hammer of hate is our faith
Power and dominion are taken by the will
By divine right hail and kill

Hail, hail, hail and kill,
Hail and kill
Hail, hail, hail and kill,
Hail and kill

Rip their flesh
Burn their hearts
Stab them in the eyes
Rape their women as they cry
Kill their servants
Burn their homes
Till there's no blood left to spill
Hail and kill
Power and dominion are taken by the will
By divine right hail and kill

Hail, hail, hail and kill,
Hail and kill
Hail, hail, hail and kill,
Hail and kill

Track Name: The Scourge of Man
Darkness awakened
Arisen with the moon
Hallowed soil now exhumed

Bloodshed unending
Each night slept in fear
Since the old King first appeared

He is the one who walks after death
The shifting shape that hungers for flesh
Passing through the stone of his ancient shrine
Beyond the forlorn throne
To live is to die

Arriving from Northlands, he strode
A champion of valor and strength

“Go now", the chieftain spoke
"Return this mare from whence it came”

With sword in hand; axe, shield, and spear
At dawn, he mounted his steed

The hero’s pursuit of the aptrgangr
To bring back the head of a King

Crimson is the forest
Tracks in the snow
Where the restless spirit roamed

Entered the barrow
The corpse rest inside
On decayed lips grew a smile

He is the one who walks after death
The incarnate curse, the scourge of man
The bringer of madness, invader of minds
Beyond the forlorn throne
To live is to die

At once, the torch extinguished
Frost and twilight filled the vault

Quickly, he reached for his sword
Before the lich could grasp his throat

Swinging with force, he cut through the air
Like the will-o-the-wisp, ‘twas was no longer there

Gripping his steel, he turned to attack
Feeling its breath on the back of his neck

Bringing the bastard down

From stab-wounds came forth
White worms and dust

Along with the gilded crown
Fell the eldest of blood

Slaughtered limb from limb,
The King fell to his knees
Writhing with the sound
Of a thousand screams

Fire!
Fire consumed the headless remains
Scorching, burning, conquered by flames

Silenced at last,
The smoldering ashes were cast
Into the sea
(Into the sea)

He is the one who walks after death
The incarnate curse, the scourge of man
The bringer of madness, invader of minds
Beyond the forlorn throne
To live is to die
Track Name: As Embers Fade
Instrumental
