Knightmare 08:04
Knightmare Losing our brothers in the swirl Of purple hues to ancient worlds The wretched shade will walk again Foretold by Dregmour's end The darkness breeds wide Will fester inside Take heed Doomed By this twist of fate Through the ethereal gate Rise Stand against our hand Dealt to us in this foreign land The warriors gaze upon the vastness ahead Battle's song echoes in the distance of Oblivion A ghastly army wages war Their chains will shackle them no more From the grave They've returned For what purpose do they serve Witness the blackened atrocity Malevolent hatred stains this land Dragon's flame and ember's bite Reality has changed now Quest for truth in our own right The soul still burns Trail of a fallen star Mourning in wayward silence Whispered tomes of darkened arts Awaken from The shine of opposition sparks within the horde A blazing sword through the infinite black Lost in the fray Stamina wavering Onward! To the onslaught we go Crash down with enchanted ferocity Benevolence gives us the upper hand Dragon's flame and ember's bite Reality has changed now Quest for truth in our own right The soul still burns Trail of a fallen star Mourning in wayward silence Whispered tomes of darkened arts Awaken from this nightmare Rest your eyes This will all be over soon I'm dreaming we'll wake up Still dreaming I'll wake up I’m dreaming Must wake up (This can't be real) The afflicted drove dissipates on their own Victory in death The sacrifice has been made Bodies lay offering Cast your spell with blood Captive in this cell A prison of the dead and I can't hold on Grant me freedom Take up our sword Heroic weapon Left by our Lord Bonecrush (Knightmare speaking) “Defeat is imminent, I shall become the vessel of destruction. The king of kings...devourer of dreams!” This power comes with a price Bloodline genocide Pay or forfeit life Dark one rise The rune speaks to me now as it fades from sight It burns vengeance into my mind Saying “BRING FORTH THEIR DEMISE!”

Oathbound 03:52
Oathbound Sons of a fabled line Protectors of our time In these veins Flows the blood of the oath bound For rule they will divide In battle dreams collide Take your place on the throne of the oath bound Betrayer Only the chosen may go Blood begets blood To the Order went the youngest determined to prove his worth Arrives upon a blackened sky Destroying flesh condemning lives Those laid to rest begin to return The promise of power makes a fool of this lad Deceived by his lust bringing darkness to the land Betrayer The kingdom you'd overthrow Broken your oath In the shrine of a fallen god Evil is born Forsaken conqueror Denounce all You have forgotten the face of your father

Shadow Remnants of the Guardian Shield We move towards the answer to our journey The key to the tower lies within the garden maze A relic to protect our group will guard us The dwarven guides speak... "In the heart of madness you will find!” The artifact you seek “Guardian shield!” Awaits thee Two converge as one The path becomes undone Shapes transform inside The ancient shield it tries to hide The walls whisper, "Your death awaits...turn back from whence you came." A way opens to reveal the past A path of bones tells a truth that none shall pass "The protectors watching for all time!” To judge the ones who seek “Guardian shield!” Awaits thee Two converge as one The path becomes undone Shapes transform inside The treasured shield is in our sight (Soothsayer) “Inscription is written: Lawful and pure may carry the weight of divinity and the voices of thine heart will speak without a word. Now…” Awaken your doom The statues crack and move Overwhelming force Unrelenting course Test your might or perish Buried in this labyrinth Eternal champions immortalized in stone (GARDEN GUARDIANS GUARDING GARDENS) The golem’s eyes shine with a wizards spell Destroying all in their way the optic flame immolates Ablaze in a battlefield of burning leaves Control the force of their fire the rays can melt armor Reflect Magic Rebound Advance Bring them down by their own hand Fight fire with fire Crumbled rock reveals weakness Chink in the armor Grind them down These monuments will collapse Reflect Magic Rebound Advance Two disposed and slain The legend we have gained Fate is on our side Guardian shield is ours tonight IT’S FUCKIN’ OURS TONIGHT!

Earthforger 04:20
Earthforger Born of clay deep in this swampy grave Sacred ground defiled by treachery Bear the curse Red soaked land turns dust to marshes Battles long lost leave their markings Warpath of fortune never to obtain Bound to the place where your bones still lay Those who dare to cross this land never shall return again Wandering this place an eternity for greed’s ambition Mine the vein Treasured ore Lay no claim Conceived through steam and rust Soulless globs house blighted remains Churning out my loyal minions Tainted land cries out for vengeance (Orichalcum) Prepare the fire (Orichalcum) Resistance is weakened (Orichalcum) Cracking the dried shell (Orichalcum) Delivered from limbo’s noose Bring me their heads Fuel the machine Grinding meat Slave to demand Those who dare to cross this land never shall return again Wandering this place an eternity for greed’s ambition Mine the vein Treasured ore Lay no claim

Final Voyage of the Gobblinaught Set sail On the sea towards the beast that plagues this deep Captain Of the ship seeks revenge for the leg he keeps Brewing Is a storm from the mist that signals death Beware Drink up For the burn in your gut may be the last Starboard Off the edge of the bow where great waves crash Serpent Casts a shade underneath that stretches wide Beware Leviathan draws near (Dread Goblin Roberts) “There ain’t no room for fear on MY ship! First the BATTLE and then the PRIZE!” Attack Cannon fire tears through the sky “Mortar and flame” “Mortar and flame” Iron basilisks let out their cry “Mortar and flame” “Mortar and flame” Final voyage of the Gobblinaught Spawned from the depths the seed of a devil rises Behold the sea queen's gaze of one thousand eyes Caught in its spell of the mind Whirlpool of illusion the monster multiplies This could be the end Capsized Riding these swirling blues the waters thrash and shall consume Lightning crashes in the distant black through the vortex we go, no turning back Shrieking Demon Don't think You've won Drive your Steel deep Take her With thee Invader from within Swallowed whole (Ready arms) Scales won't protect you now This sea is your final resting place Final voyage of the Gobblinaught

Mystic Island Shipwrecked In need of extended rest Perception check Cinders flood through the haze Vision clouds perception fades Upon the shore of ashes a miasma shrouds all Lay on hands Open your minds eye Receive the aura of the guardian Fortify resolve Gain the blessing of the paladin Hidden defender Divine protector Dispel this cursed fog Spectral might Phantasmal knight Place your judgement in our steel Unveiled the foreboding obelisk A tombstone for this realm Piercing the sky Never-ending Within the spire a hive of terrors await Abominations grasp at life thirsty for a taste The scent of death grows stronger higher the steps we take Ask not for whom the bell tolls for it tells of our own fate Sacrifice Nobility's shine engulfs this place Cleansing light To keep darkness away Afterlife Ascending through your trinity Black and white become gray Rest in peace

Dark Tower 06:14
Dark Tower Ascending what seems an eternal stairwell Where the sky meets the mountains and the darkness does dwell I pull forth my torch for the fire to catch and before our eyes an ancient latch Open the tomb low tone heard by all If we don't strike first then Surely we'll fall I reach for my strap and come forth the horde This is the moment I’ll reclaim my.... I'll reclaim my sword! This feud ends tonight atop a landmark of sin Clash A declaration of blood and blade This tower shall serve as the place of your grave Your legend shall be born when your myth has been slain Bestowed our path tonight There are other worlds across this time But I will see you on the other side at the clearing Break your limits in this final fight Seeker of destruction guardian of night Foretold discord harbinger of war The walls of this tower shall be painted in your gore Bestowed our path tonight There are other worlds across this time But I will see you on the other side at the clearing Death is not for you Something far worse Destiny you cannot escape Sever these threads of fate Destiny you will try and change severe these threads of fate Scorned from this fire within Journeys end Quests begin But this battle is not over Pierced Doom has forced it’s way in Bathed in red Eyes grow dim Gaze into the abyss and it shall gaze back

Planetary Collapse Tearing flesh from the wound A void that should invite death As the blood pours black let the darkness consume Disgraced your coat of arms This deity sleeps no more Deep in your marrow Total loss of control Eyes turn to crimson Expressionless destruction Engulfed insanity The whims of a demon lord guide your hand Horns made of flame take form Raise your sword Become calamity the end of all things Agent of doomsday claim your wings Apocalyptic thrall Host to oblivion Set in motion cataclysm This hilt of mine burns red It's loud roar tells me to grasp victory Eruption shining from within Strike down With these tidings, the almighty one bestows Empowered with a cursed force a baneful blade that glows The planet begins to crack Sliced in half A smile upon the severed corpse It echoes with a laugh Prophecy fulfilled at last Force fed the fire from an eon of hatred Avert your eyes before the absolute Cast down from above The oldest ones dream Reap which not ye create A new age is born The lineage is too strong Defy the power of a god Sigil of royalty Condemns your being Born of cruelty Bow to your king Obtain calamity the end of all things Agent of doomsday I claim your wings Galactic price is paid A realms end of days closes upon the stage Follow the waves of time and space A power cosmic lies dormant once again Soul bound to the sword's command I am the wielder of absolution Behold, my kingdom of infinity Behold, a gateway opens in the sky Behold
