Warlord
When you see me comin' flying down the road
You know I ain't afraid to lay it down
Yea got me some leather. leather is my skin
Black n chrome flashin' through the town.
Some call me the warlord 'cause I'm a god-damn
Bad machine, young n hungry, not too proud n mean

Ride, ride, ride, I'm the warlord of the road,
Riding, riding, riding, ain't never growin old.

Take what I want and I go where I please
Got the world right by the balls. this world ain't
Big enough to keep me down. yea we're livin'
In a sick world. the man on the t.v. said we
Got lotsa trouble overseas, well what the hell
Do I care? think they care about me?
Stop sending money send em all a bomb.

Ride, ride, ride, I'm the warlord of the road,
Ridin, ridin, ridin, ain't never growin old.

Born to live in the fast lane on a chopped up
Harley-d, smell that oil and high test gasoline.
Never got a shortage of girls to share my seat.
Well they all want to know what people say is true,
You know, get a biker started n he'll drive all
Damn night. well hold on honey cause this ride's
For a ride.

Ride, ride, ride, ride, ride, ride, ride
I'm the warlord of the road.
Riding, ridin, ridin, ain't never growin old.back to top
Secret of Steel
Atop the mountain, where the river of steel flows
Black is the forest, white was the snow.
There as children, how could children know?
One without name or number soon would show.

There stood he, on his chariot made of gold
He did reveal the trinity of secrets old.

A sceptre of iron could mercy bring.
A shield of gold, the creator and king,
And the great sword of steel.

Sons of destiny shall wield.
Hear wisdom's voice.
Rise, know the strength that you feel.
Hold in your heart, but never reveal
You were called by the gods, their powers to wield.
Guard well the secret of steel.

A sceptre of iron could mercy bring.
A shield of gold, the creator and king,
And the great sword of steel.

Sons of destiny shall wield.
Hear wisdom's voice.
Rise, know the strength that you feel.
Hold in your heart, but never reveal.
You were called by the gods, their powers to wield.
Guard well the secret of steel.back to top
Gloves of Metal
Hear the pounding army of the night
The call of metal summons us tonight.
And gather we on this site
To behold the power and the might.
We wear leather, we wear spikes, we rule the night.

Off with the lights, hear the screams
See the banging heads awaken to their dreams.
The sound of metal so loud it cracks the beams
Played by warriors called the metal kings.

A hero's welcome for those who heed the call.
We are together, we are all.
With hands high fists fill the air
Against the world we stand.
Hands high forever we'll be there.
Gloves of metal rule tonight. yea.

A hero's welcome for those who heed the call.
We are together, we are all.
With hands high fists fill the air
Against the world we stand.
Hands high forever we'll be there,
Gloves of metal rule tonight.

Leather, metal, spikes and chains
Gloves of metal raised to show the brave.
Into the darkness march the armies of the night.
Bound by metal we live the fight.
We wear leather, we wear spikes, we rule the night
With hands high fists fill the air
Against the world we stand.
With hands high forever we'll be there,
Gloves of metal rule tonight!back to top
Gates of Valhalla
Valhalla the gods await me
Open wide thy gates embrace me.
Great hall of the battle slain
With sword in hand.
All those who stand on shore
Raise high your hands to bid a last
Farewell to the viking land.

Death's chilling wind blows through my hair
I'm now immortal, I am there
I take my place by odin's side
Eternal army in the sky.

I point my hatchet to the wind
I guard the gates and all within
Hear my sword sing as I ride across the sky
Sworn by the sacred blood of odin onward ride.

Valhalla the gods await me
Open wide thy gates embrace me
Great hall of the battle slain
With sword in hand.
Behold the kingdom of the kings
Books of spells and magic rings
Endless knowledge, endless time
I scream the final battle cry.back to top
Hatred
I taste your blood as it showers from my blade.
I eat your heart, from evil it was made.
With heart filled hatred black blood runs through
My veins.
I take your powers to the ancient ones who reign.

I conquer evil, let evil know my name.
Come forth ye wicked, know the gruesome pain.
I am the omen, the one that cannot die
I am the flame, hatred burns inside.

My strength is hatred, torment and pain, hatred, hatred.
With heart filled hatred black blood runs through my veins.

I crush your bones, I kill your face
I rip your flesh, I end the chase
You meet with terror, you draw the ace
I rule the world the rats that race.

My strength is hatred, torment and pain, hatred, hatred
With heart filled hatred black blood runs through my veins.

Revelation (Death's Angel)
Above the wreckage of your mortal world I stand
Judgement passed delivered by his hand
Now clear the smoke, there the ashes stand
A fitting tribute to mortality and man.
What was written foretold in dreams,
in visions apocalypse now seen.
And all self-righteous fools who lived and blasphemed
Drink the wine of his anger
Die with the beast
Vindication, he is coming on the clouds
See his angels, hear their trumpets sound.
The day of anger when the stars fall from the sky
The moon turns red, the sun turns black as night.
Know the end is coming, heed this sign
By the morning star the four horsemen ride.
Revelation, the chosen saved
Earth be cleansed in a blaze
Armageddon, the first trumpet blows
Hail, fire and blood fall on Satan's throne.
His hair as white as wool, his eyes like burning flame
He is the first and last, he brings the seven plagues
Seven stars of seven cities in his hand
He holds the keys of death for the underworld and man
Know the end is coming, heed this sign
By the morning star he four horsemen ride
Revelation, the chosen saved
Earth be cleansed in a blaze
Armageddon, the first trumpet blows
Hail, fire and blood fall on Satan's throne.
Revelation, the chosen saved
Earth be cleansed in a blaze
Armageddon, the first trumpet blows
Hail, fire and blood fall on Satan's throne.back to top
March for Revenge (By the Soldiers of Death)
Ride, Ride, Ride, Ride Up From Hell
Armed with magic sons of demons and men
This song of greeting written for your tragic end.
So long our stride the world doth tremble with fear
Black winds blow where we ride near.
Maim and kill them, take the women and children.
Hot pitch and chain take to the air
Our ramming blades lay their ships hold bare.
Steel meets steel, axes, broadsword and shield.
Their heads ride our spears and bodies cover the fields.
Maim and kill them, take the women and children.
Fallen brother as I hold closed your side
I fear this wound your last.
Mighty earth now doth drink your blood
And I remember days long past.
Your sacrifice so great, rest now take thy sleep
For you shall not awake, let revenge be sweet.
For when we march, your sword rides with me.
For when we march, your sword rides with me.
For when we march, your sword rides with me.
For when we march, your sword rides with me.
You who killed my brother and all who take your side
This be your last hour. Let your steel be tried.
Now turn to face me upon the timeless plane
Kill me if you can.
Death is life!
By the full moon they rise from their graves.
Through seas of blood, fighting with hell bent rage.
Swear the creed of unity, by the circle of blood
We are one, we know not fear! Born to fight not run.
Maim and kill them, take the women and children.back to top
Blood of My Enemies
Three sons have i, and they
Ride by my side. - the fierce,
The black, and the wicked are
Their names - we ride down my
Enemies on their half-hearted flight.
No voice of mercy - no evangels of light.

Mighty messengers - heathens rage
Witness our coming - gods of the dead.
I ride through the air -
I laugh as I die - with powers of evil
Dark knowledge is mine.
The ride of the wicked.
The 1st sin was trust. -
Kill without warning - for blood now
I lust.

Strong winds - magic mist
To asgard the valkries fly
High overhead - they carry the dead
Where the blood of my enemy lies.

Three sons have i, and they
Ride by my side. - the fierce,
The black, and the wicked are
Their names - we ride down my
Enemies on their half-hearted flight.
No voice of mercy - no evangels of light.

Strong winds - magic mist
To asgard the valkries fly
High overhead - they carry the dead
Where the blood of my enemy lies.back to top
Each Dawn I Die
Passing through the storm -
Led by demons - walk between the
World of men and gods -
Cast no shadows - draw no light.
I rape the priestess on pagans night.

I taste the serpents poison
On the lips of the one I love.
She brings this gift of witchcraft.
I wear the cat-skin gloves.

Apples of youth when I wrought
Mischief, hung in a tree to rot
In the sun. -
Reborn in the middle of the
Final orgy - a gift of slavery
To the chosen one.

Suicide suicide don't you know
Me - call to the master - he will
Come. - he will bring our
Resurrection - cloacked in darkness -
He has won.

Smoke of my sacrifice. -
Journey to the isle of the
Blessed. -
Grant my soul your glory.
At night time - I'm your guest.
Only I know why -

Each dawn I die.

Smoke of my sacrifice. -
Journey to the isle of the
Blessed. -
Grant my soul your glory.
At night time - I'm your guest.
Only I know whyback to top
Kill With Power
Hear what's written on the wind.
We come to kill and kill again.
Our arrows fall like hail
Trample on the dead. - ride through the
Gate of clouds - stand on the open step.

Run beserk - spreading fear and pain.
Black shield and weapons, black our chain.
None can harm us - not their fire -
Iron or steel - for we have the
Will to power - with power we will
Kill.

Kill with power - die die
Kill with power - die die

To the war God odin you will pray.
And the curse of weapons shall
Remain. on the blood of all our
Fathers - on their weapons we now
Swear to avenge - not lament.
Give the false ones death.

Kill with power - die die
Kill with power - die dieback to top

Black Arrows
Black Arrows (of Death) is instrumental.back to top
Bridge of Death
Slowly crossing as the river runs below
Never stopping for what's waiting soon will show
And this the last time looking back I'll see
My home for he awaits me reaching for my
Soul. he calls my name, and waves me on
The fallen one he stands in flame

Well the life that he has given full of riches
And sucess has a price that I made good in
Blood to pay. and the light he now is showing
To guide my every footstep is insurance if
I falter on my way. and what God has now
Forsaken and man has never seen are the
Riches of the underworld below all my
Years of earthly pleasures gave support
Unto the bridge I now cross it giving
Him my soul

Dark lord, I summon thee demanding the
Sacred right to burn in hell, ride up on hells
Hot wind. face one more evil than thou, take
My lustful soul,
Drink my blood as I drink yours, impale me on
The horns of death
Cut off my head release all my evil lucifer is king
Praise satan

I know the one who waits satan is
His name, across the bridge of
Death there he stands in flame
I know the one who waits satan
Is his name across the bridge of death
There he stands in flame.

He is my provider as I walk into the
Void for eternity I give him my soul
I shall do his bidding obey him
Without question even walk among the living if
I'm told

Satan don't forsake me I wait for
You to take me grant me wings and as
Your messenger I'll flyback to top
