Wings of Vengeance
[MUSIC & LYRICS BY DAVID DEFEIS]

[ERINYES:]
Cold the Blood of an Angel, cold the Blood in my Heart
Never stand between us or lose the Mystic Art

[APOLLO:]
Die cursing the Shadows, die cursing the Light
Everything is changing except the Will to Fight

[APOLLO TO ORESTES:]
By the Rising of the Sun, you will understand this Night
In the Land where your Father died

[ORESTES:]
Into the Mighty Arms of Death
Into the Darkness we fall
Into the Mighty Arms of Death
Into the Darkness we fall

[ORESTES:]
Cold the Blood of an Angel, cold the Blood of the Sky
Everything is Fated, the Gods to me won't lie
Die cursing the Shadows, die cursing the Light
Everything is wasted, except the Will to Fight

[APOLLO & ELEKTRA:]
By the Rising of the Sun, you will understand this Night
In the Land where your Father died

[ORESTES, ELEKTRA & CHORUS OF SLAVES:]
Into the Mighty Arms of Death
Into the Darkness we fall
Into the Mighty Arms of Death
Into the Darkness we fall... Spirit.... Avenge... Fury... Face the Flames...

[APOLLO & CHORUS:]
Come forth rise, take off your chains and fly into the Sky
Stake the Viper, Kill in turn
Fly, make an Oath to the Sky
Win your Kingdom, win the Fame of a God!!!

[ERINYES:]
Cold the Blood of an Angel, cold the Blood in my Heart
Everything is Raging, the Damned will choose their Mark

[APOLLO:]
Kill, Kill without warning, run the Blood of the Free
Fear lives on a Mountain and Ravages our Dreams
By the Rising of the Sun, you will understand this Night of Fire

[CHORUS:]
Into the Mighty Arms of Death
To the Sky we never left
Uncertain Hero you'll win the Day
Violent accounting, Fortune's array!

[ORESTES & CHORUS:]
Into the Mighty Arms of Death
Into the Darkness we fall
Into the Mighty Arms of Death
Into the Darkness we fall... we fall... we fall...
In Darkness.... Descend!back to top
Hymn to the Gods of Night
[MUSIC & LYRICS BY DAVID DEFEIS]

[ELEKTRA & SLAVE WOMEN:]
Gods of Night, Gods of Death
I release thee
Now from Bondage go forth upon my Quest

Gods of Night, Gods of Death
I beseech thee
Strike with Power, steal the Dragon's Breath

[ELEKTRA to ORESTES:]
KNOW THIS, HE WAS MUTILATED WHEN SHE BURIED HIM
TO CRIPPLE HIS SPIRIT AND MAKE IT UNBEARABLE FOR YOU!!!back to top
Fire of Ecstasy
[MUSIC BY DAVID DEFEIS & EDWARD PURSINO]

[ORESTES:]
I've got the Power of God, I've got the Healing Hand
I'm hear for your Salvation, I will cleanse the Land
Turn Darkness to Light, Burn the Sun through the Night
I bear the Sword of Truth, Hatred can't dispute
NO!
I'll route the Wings of Treason, I'll possess what's mine
Storm the Gates of Madness, Conquer Death and Time
When the Black Wind blows, I will bring the Light
Wash away your Sadness and cleanse the Night

[ELEKTRA & ORESTES:]
Fire and Water and Rain comes down
Underneath the Earth and Sky
You and I we will Shine like Fire on the Wings of the Storm
With the FIRE OF ECSTASY! FIRE OF ECSTASY!

[ORESTES:]
DIE!
APOLLO, DON'T FORSAKE ME!
HAVOC BRINGS OUT FURY... PILE DEATH UPON DEATH!
WAR GOD WILL CLASH WITH WAR GOD, STRIP AWAY THEIR ARMOR
WASH THE HALLS IN BLOOD!
WRAPPED IN A NET OF HATRED YOUR PRECIOUS BLOOD DID FLOW
FATHER, THEY BEAT YOU HELP US DESTROY THEM!!!

[ELEKTRA & ORESTES:]
Fire and Water and Rain comes down
Underneath the Open Sky
You and I we will Shine like Fire on the Wings of the Storm

[ORESTES:]
I've got the Power of God, I've got the Healing Hand
I'm here for your Salvation, I will Rule the Land!

[ELEKTRA & ORESTES:]
Fire and Water and Rain comes down
Underneath the Earth and Sky
You and I we will Shine like Fire on the Wings of the Storm
Fire and Water and Rain comes down
Underneath the Earth and Sky
You and I will Avenge our Father on the Wings of the Storm!
With the FIRE OF ECSTASY! FIRE OF ECSTASY!!!back to top
The Oracle of Apollo
[MUSIC AND LYRICS BY DAVID DEFEIS]

[APOLLO:]
"WHEN THE FLESH OF LIFE IS RENT BY MURDER MOST FOUL,
AND THE BLOOD OF LIFE IS FREED UPON THE AIR
IT CRIES OUT IN ANGER FOR MORE BLOODSHED, THAT IS THE LAW!
HE WHO INFLICTS DEATH MUST SUFFER THE PAIN OF RETRIBUTION,
IT IS THE ANCIENT WISDOM OF THE AGES... OR..."

[ORESTES:]
Eternal Torment will strike your Heart
The Arrows of the Gods sting
Sent by Fathers who died unjust
To destroy the coward son
They visit him with Plagues - Dark Cancers of the Mind
He'll die in horror, drowning in the Waters of Acheron and Lethe...back to top
The Voice as Weapon
[MUSIC AND LYRICS BY DAVID DEFEIS]

[APOLLO:]
She's the Goddess of the Silent Water waiting
Siren on the Rocks the Heir of Crime
Child of the Sun, Stormwitch of Burning
Black is the Foam of your Birth

Fasten on the Cloak of Silver Dreaming
Drain the Poison Cup or Race the Sky
Smile on the Sun, you are the Savior
Justice is not Matricide!

[APOLLO & SLAVE WOMEN:]
THE VOICE AS WEAPON, THE VOICE AS WEAPON
Kill from without, Kill from within
Where the Sunlight tastes like Rage

[APOLLO:]
Poison on the Sun reveals the Hydra
Burning on the Sword I know is red
Smile on the Son's Fateful endeavor
Now she will see by disguise
Recognize the sound of Silver Screaming
Slaughtering the Nations of thy Soul

[ORESTES:]
I am the one, I own the Power
Holiness sleeps at the eyes

[APOLLO & SLAVE WOMEN:]
THE VOICE AS WEAPON, THE VOICE AS WEAPON
Kill from without, Kill from within
Where the Sunlight tastes like Rage!

[APOLLO:]
Kill this wanton pair... Or Race the Sky!

[ELEKTRA:]
Keep your Courage and now be a Man
Black Robed Angels of Death you'll Command
You may Kill her and not suffer blame
Heed the Words of Apollo's Oracle

[ORESTES:]
She's the Goddess of the Silent Water waiting
Bathing on the Shores of Murder's Wine
Smile on the Son, I am returning
Back to the Home of my Birth
Blessings on the God's Light Shining
The Crown of Victory I'll wear in time
I have the force no one can tame us
Hermes will be our guide!

[ORESTES:]
THE VOICE AS WEAPON, THE VOICE AS WEAPON
Kill from without, Kill from within
Where the Sunlight tastes like Rage!

[APOLLO, ELEKTRA & SLAVE WOMEN:]
Break the Silence, break the Spirit
In the Palace, Blood will flow...
For the Shadow of thy Father
Bringing Judgment, Blood will flow...back to top
Moira
[MUSIC AND LYRICS BY DAVID DEFEIS]

[KLYTEMNESTRA:]
Tears of Blood, Clouds hide the Sun
The Day goes Black in my arms
Pain and Love the Science of the World
Tears of Blood fill my Heart

[ORESTES:]
Dry your eyes the Son will rise... tomorrow
Born in Blood all must fall

[ELEKTRA & SLAVE WOMEN:]
KILL HER, KILL HER!!!

[ORESTES:]
Mountains arise, the Cities die
(Into the Seas of Blood, Scars of War remain...)
By the Power of the Will and Mind
Drown my Soul within your lips
(Into the Seas of Blood, Scars of War remain...)
The Scars of what might have been...

[KLYTEMNESTRA:]
Seas of Blood, Clouds hide the Sun
The Day goes Black in my arms...back to top
The Wine of Violence
[MUSIC BY DAVID DEFEIS & EDWARD PURSINO]

[ORESTES:]
Like the Talon of Mars I'll tear right through the Wall
Thunder and Lightning in Power the Gods reveal all
In the Black where the Siren Reigns
Ravaging the Spirits of the Brave

THE WINE OF VIOLENCE, breaks our control
See the Madness, Burning Angels Glow
THE WINE OF VIOLENCE, I steal your Soul
See the Madness in me grow

I am the Wound and the Scar and the Spear come to Life
Sacred Red Son of the Sun, torn to pieces imbibed
In the Black where the Darkness rains Death
Drowning in the currents of your shame

THE WINE OF VIOLENCE, takes your control
Sin and Madness Burning Kingdoms whole
THE WINE OF VIOLENCE, I steal your Soul
See the Madness in me grow

[ORESTES to AIGISTHOS:]
Fight me you coward, Thief of Stolen Days
Joy is Destruction, driving me insane to Fight
Win the Silence of the Damned, Holy Order, High Command
Eagle tearing Flesh from Bone
Golden Whirlwind, bare the Stars we fly! Fly!!!
Let the Death Mist close your eyes!!!

[ORESTES:]
THE WINE OF VIOLENCE, takes all control
See the Fire Burning down below
THE WINE OF VIOLENCE, I steal your Soul
See the God in me Enthroned!

All Dead, Silent and alone
No more Savior carved in Stone
All Dead nobody will Weep
Icy Water, Death runs Deep... Vengeance is Mine... I regain my Halls...back to top
A Token of My Hatred
[MUSIC AND LYRICS BY DAVID DEFEIS]

[ORESTES:]
I bring Vengeance!!!
I ride the Severed - Seven Winds of Time
From the Corner of the World
Last Holy Warrior, Fire in my eyes
There is Hatred in my Soul

Great God of the Seven Seas, Great God of the Sky
Hear me now as I ride down this Wind
A King of Eternity to the last, when the first Stars arise
I have come claiming my Victory to the End
When the Carrion must die

Inside the Palace, Avernus awaits
Here the floor runs red with Blood
This bitter blessing demanded by my Oath
Lord Apollo hear my cry!
Great God of the Seven Seas, Great God of the Sky
Hear me now as I ride down this Wind
A King of Eternity to the last, with a Sword by my side
I have come proclaiming this Victory to the House
And a butchered Father's cries

Ride the Wind Snake through the Air
See the Cauldron of Blood Burning there
From the Dark side let the Child arrive
To Ride the Rings of the Sky... on the Day when all Tyrants die!
I bring Vengeance!!!

Life unfolds into the Sin of War
Cold and Proud I Praise the Sky
Here I stand with the Gods
Broken Sword Raised in Might
Against the World we Avenge Our Father, Victory Now !

Hear me cry, the King of Eternity to the End
When all Violence dies
I am yours fighting for Victory to the End
When the last Tyrant dies

Chain of Violence, a forsaken Crown
Lay the Dust of your Future in Shrouds
For the last time the Child arrives
To right the Sins of his Home
To the End when all Tyrants Die !

And the Clouds of Doom Arise
To Kill the Night We Wept
And the Dark Mist did appear.
Through the Night We Wept.back to top
Summoning the Powers
[MUSIC BY: DAVID DEFEIS & EDWARD PURSINO]

[KLYTEMNESTRA'S SPIRIT:]
Spirit of the Air... Remember
Spirit of the Earth... Hear my Prayer
Spirit of the Seas... I Summon thee
To the One who has no Name
Veiled is the Night, bright are the Eyes of the Dead
Fire and Water... cleanse... purify
Great Spirit of Power, hear now my Commands
Grant every Wish of Blood... Blood!

Gods of the Dead feel my Rage, enter the Circle of my Sacrifice
Take on the World, free the Plagues with the Smoke of your Word
Dark is the Vision that Burns in my Heart
Kill from within, Conjure the Seven who stand on the Mountains of Dawn
I am the Flame

Spirit of the Air... Remember
Black Gods of the Sun...

Cry out to me, steal the Thrones and the Powers of Him
Black is the Vision of all we despise
Slide on the Wind, Great is the Power that comes in the Back of the Night
I am the Flame

Spirit of the Air... Remember
Black Gods of the Sun, cry to me
Spirit of the Sea, know thy suffering
Black Gods of the Sun, hear my Cry!

Gods of the Silence, Gods of the Damned
Offer no Mercy, withdraw your Hand

Gods of the Silence, Gods of the Sand
Shorn of your Glory, Kill on Command

Gods of the Dead, feel my Rage, enter the Circle of my Sacrifice
Take on the World, She who Reings in the Palace of Night
Dark is the Vision that Burns in my Heart
Gilde down the Stars, feel my Hate
Outcasts of Heaven we meet in the City Below, I am the Flame

Spirit of the Air. Remember
Black Gods of the Sun, cry to me
Spirit of the Earth, know thy suffering
Black Gods of the Sun, HEAR MY CRY !!!back to top
Arms of Mercury
[MUSIC AND LYRICS BY DAVID DEFEIS]

[ORESTES:]
I raise my head I close my eyes
The Statue stares the Apparition smiles
Am I here living in Mystery to the last
When all Gods must die...
I am yours, Pain lives inside of me
To the End when the Final Rain must Fall... Away...

I raise my head I say Farewell
The Solemn Fears come and Crystallize
Blackened Eyes, Shadows of Misery
To the End when all Gods must die
I am yours, Death walks inside of me
For the last, for my Requiem... Again...

I Fear the ARMS OF MERCURY Surround me
From the Corners of the World I say goodbye
I know the End is coming soon
From the Margent of the World I say Farewell
I know the pain that I've caused
I know the Lives that were Lost
In this Dark Time the Eyes deny to wash all this Blood from my Hands...
In the End will we all pay this Price...

I Fear the ARMS OF MERCURY Surround...
From the Corner of the World I wave goodbye
I know the End is coming soon
From the Cauldron of the World I say Farewell
I know the Pain that I've caused
I know the Lines that were drawn
In the Dark Time will the Gods design to wash all this Blood from my Hands...
Or in the End will we all pay this price...back to top
By the Gods
[MUSIC & LYRICS BY DAVID DEFEIS]

[ERINYES:]
BY THE GODS - Black Slaughter
BY THE GODS - You're King
BY THE GODS - Blind Justice
BY THE GODS - We Sing
All shall heel, all shall hear!
BY THE GODS - Your Father
BY THE GODS - Your Soul
BY THE GODS - In Fire
BY THE GODS - You're owned
All shall heel, all shall hear!

[CHORUS OF ATHENIANS:]
Gods and Devils screaming out their Final Warning
Holy Fire from the Sky
Violent Mourning Burns the Rays of Olympus
While the Blood drips from their eyes
And the Crime shakes the Hall, "ARE YOU READY"
When you see the Liar Burn
Yet the Kanons are the Snakes of his Torment, at the Naval of the Earth

[ERINYES:]
I see the Sons of the Crown of the New
Covered in Bloodlust and shame
I feel the Whip of the Great Son of Zeus
Lashing my Honour and Place
Lightning won't remove the Crown We hold True
I see the Face of the God, I see the Face of the God on his Black Soul

[APOLLO:]
I see the Madness as I look into your eyes
Impaling Terror unfit for this Shrine
Riding in Thunder the Murdering Rain
Leave this Shrine and the Halls of the Mighty
Go and Haunt the Slaughterhouse!

[ERINYES:]
I see the Sons of the Crown of our New
King of the Heavens of Shame
I see the tricks of the Lords We once Ruled
I see the Face of the God, I see the Face of the God on his Black Soul

[APOLLO:]
Let the Goddess of Fortune decide who'll never return

[ERINYES:]
Will the Day break instead of the Night, the Victim returns

[ORESTES:]
In the Silence of the City, I await Fortune or Fire
Dear Athena be my Healer, I am here knowing that Life may never return...

[ERINYES:]
And when you Die you'll meet the World's Suffering
Plunge into the Black Night Sky
We are in Force, We are called as One... All as One
Holding the Ancient Right of Blood...back to top
Hammer the Winds
[MUSIC & LYRICS BY DAVID DEFEIS]

[ORESTES:]
Gods of All behold this Vow
I see the Flames before my eyes
I will employ your grasp
To lead and not to blame
But I will rise with the Sun
Writhing Mask of Desire

[ERINYES:]
HAMMER THE WINDS to Fury
See your Life's Blood leave
Burning in the Darkness
Where We now shall lead
All of Us in Power on this Night

[ATHENA & CHORUS:]
HAMMER THE WINDS to Fury
Bleach the Darkness Blind
Burning in a Circle
Crowned in Deadlocked Pride

[ERINYES:]
Honoured We Stand, We are All Above... All Above
In despairing Light We Shineback to top
