Track Name: Circle of Blood
In the deep forest
Beyond the morbid silence of trees
The witches make the circle
Made of fire and blood

The full moon rises in a distant sky
It’s the beginning of the ritual

Fire, water, wind and stone
With dagger in hands the witches pray

[Chorus]
Creatures of night
Specters of dark
They are devil in disguise
In the circle of blood

The maiden scream for mercy
And the devil smiles
Bringing the bells of midnight
Freezing the souls of those who hear it

The thunder roar behind the clouds
And silent the last scream

Around the flame the circle remains
Through the night the witches dance
Track Name: Wild Heart
Corned hands
My body wants to rest
But my soul is screaming
My maximum is not the best

Bleeding hands
You know i'll never stop
This mountain has no end
But i'll climb it to the top!

Wild heart
Riding inside your veins
Wild heart
An one that knows no chains

Tireless hands
My eyes are getting weak
The suffering is growing
However, i can see the peak!

Glorious hands
Climbing the last stone
With my heart in my hand
I am blessed by the rainstorm

Wild heart
Riding inside your veins
Wild heart
An one that knows no chains

Wild heart
Born on the mist of rage
Wild heart
Crossing spiritual plains
Track Name: Master of Fate
Roaming on a burning earth
I see too many lives
Waiting for the judgement day
Denied by paradise

I can free you from the prison of life
Follow me, shut up you prayers
I'll show you the way

Who will live
Who will die
I am the owner
Of you soul and mind

I am the god
The dragon of blood
Eternal darkness
I am the hate, the war incarnate
I am the master of your fate

Perishing in world of thorns
Hellish shades in torment roar
That's the due they owe me
You're dancing on my claws

I'm your life
I'm your death
Its me who decide
When will be your last breath

I am a god
The dragon of blood
Eternal darkness
I am the hate, the war incarnate
I am the master of your fate
Track Name: Cauldron
Candles burning in a dark samhain night
The last harvest approaches
Whispering voices, the two worlds colliding
The holy flame shines once again

Now is the time to sing the old songs
And remember the past
Old dreams became truth in the rites of passage
Life and death side by side

We rise from ashes to life
Our fates are sealed inside the cauldron
We came from darkness to light
Our lives are free inside the cauldron

Ancient spirits flying along with the wind
The gate is now open to freedom
The old king dies but his soul still lives
We wait for the unborn child

Now is the time to sing the old songs
And remember the past
Old dreams became truth in the rites of passage
Life and death side by side

Twilight is coming
Sun setting down
Night is falling
With the winters now
Track Name: Firestorm
Here in the dark road
Only the moonlight makes clear my way
I go forward searching the glory
Defending my land from the evil
That comes from outside

I see the dragons flying in the sky
And remember the peace that no longer exist
I dream to find the solution
To detain the firestorm

To live under the shadow
Of a sanguinary past
To fight under the ensign
Of facing everything without fear

This life is cruel
For those who have no power
But in this battle
Only the strongest will triumph
Track Name: Stronghold
I pledge allegiance
To my will and desires
Here in the shadows
Where no one has face

Anxiously i await to fall asleep
Cos in my dreams they rule
And slowly consume me
Possessing my heart

There is no way to refuse this
The sensation is great
I feel supreme of bearing this power
And feed on your fears

Stronghold
Stronghold of souls

I love the way they face me
Trying to show superiority
But its enough just a gaze
To feel the fear scaping from his eyes

I love the yells of pain
Of the imprisioned souls
I love to torture your heart
And drink your sweet blood
Track Name: Blood Sentence
They call themselves the holy knights in red
Wearing hoods and carrying swords
Holy blades in flames
Snorting rage and invoking names
Opening wounds and terrible scars

To be burnt at the stake
Scythes and magic against the blades
To refuse and never state
Witches, wizards, gypsies and all the atheists

From a hollow sanctuary
Carrying out the sacred judgment
Spreading around the breath of the bonfire
They condemn you to the blood sentence

Behind shields and unbreakable armors
Invading citadels and burning the infidels
Deprived of mercy or sacred license
Riding dark horses and abolishing insolence
Hunting the villagers and killing without endeavor

They call themselves sanctified judges
Like tyrants they also drain
All that is different is a plague
But blood sentence is real pain

To be bursting by the rage
Ploughs and spells against the raids
To deny and never awake
Intolerance, savage and an unforgivable fake

From a hollow sanctuary
Carrying out the sacred judgment
Spreading around the breath of the bonfire
They condemn you to the blood sentence
Track Name: Liberty is Death
Legs are trembling
Fear is surrounding
No one to wipe
Your sweat brow

Innocent eyes
Stares you from the cell
None hope's alowed
No coins in the whishing well

Liberty
Liberty
Liberty is death

Mental disorder
Emotional disaster
Chains of salvation
Schakles of fate

Tons of pressure
Grinding our brain
You're drowning in the mud
While you dig on your own grave

Liberty
Liberty
Liberty is death

We face the umpire
We hold our ground
In the eyes of the umpire
We are hell-bound
The trial is raging
In the halls of despair
It's time to give up
Now confess!

Liberty
Liberty
Liberty is death
Track Name: Lighthouse Reaper
An old legend
A cemetery without tombs
Around the lighthouse
Innocents buried alive
Always suffering since they´re dead
Fresh meat
Now becomes rotten
Under the earth
Tales from this evil man
Just thinking in his own path

Digging graves
No one here will rest in peace
In his mind
The shove is a way to be god

Lighthouse, lighthouse reaper

A hundred years, a thousand sins
His cruelty has grown since the first
Even killing, he´s still thirsty
Is this a man, or is it a beast?
Unleashing souls from their bodies
He laughs the sound of a storm stinking
Dry blood, he comes back home
Sure he is the one

Digging graves
The nightmare is not over yet
In his mind
Collecting souls made him immortal

Light house, lighthouse reaper

Digging graves
Now his body is six feet under
In his mind
He became lord of hell

Light house, lighthouse reaper
Track Name: Death Rain
Challenge for the future
Racing in the sky
Slaves of hate
World drowning in rage

7 tons of iron
Scorching through the land
Bombs and bullets
Messengers of death

Deadly beasts
And steel-chromed fists
Feasting with fury their glory

Earthquake pounds
Fire mix with stone
A planet of t.n.t
Is up to explode

Death rain
Nitro falls from the sky
Death rain
Demolition is the law
Track Name: Siegfried
Slayer of Beasts, Master of Warlords
Dressed in a Armor, Bathed in Dragon’s Blood

Blessed by the Will of the Gods
Came the Prince Lord of the Rhein
From the Kingdom of Xanten
He was to enter a Holy Shrine

Wonders of another place and time
He forged his own sword Nothung
As apprentice to a dwarf called Mime
Blacksmith master of the Nibelungs


From the Mermaid Guardians of the River
The dwarf Alberich stole the Rhein Gold
As he molded the Gold into a Ring
With Power to conquer the World

The Gates of Hell wait for him to come
Tricks of Heart to Siegfried were shown
Compelled to fight the Saxon Horde
For the Love of a Maiden unknown

Slayer of Beasts, Master of Warlords
Dressed in a Armor, Bathed in Dragon’s Blood

But a Leaf got in the Way
Leaving an uncovered Spot in his Skin
Where he could be easily slain
By the Spear of Treachery and Sin

Out for a Hunt in the deep forest
Treason would seal his Sort
Death for the Nibelung‘s Treasure
Dealt in the Burgundian Court

Slayer of Beasts, Master of Warlords
Dressed in a Armor, Bathed in Dragon’s Blood
Track Name: To Valhalla We Ride
In Asgard, the eternal realm
Odin, the Lord, ruler of the gods
Shows his message for those
Who stand at his side
Lightning and thunder roaring in the sky
By the mighty Hammer of Thor
Together we ride in the storm
Under the eyes of the gods

I see Valkyries riding
Over the battlefield
Leading the souls of the brave warriors
Crossing the rainbow bridge to

Valhalla
Great palace of gold
Valhalla
Over the clouds
Odin show me the way to Valhalla

We hear the mighty clash
Bringing the twilight of the gods
We are waiting for a sign
of Tyr, God of War
To the battle we march
On the bloody field we fight
Falling warriors and broken swords
The ground drinking the blood

I see Valkyries riding
I feel that my time has come
My brothers wait me to the final battle
In the old halls of

Valhalla
Great palace of gold
Valhalla
Over the clouds
Heimdal open the gates to Valhalla we ride
