Track Name: The Beginning
Out of the silence, a voice begins to preach
Saying he’s the man that will change everything
His vision of future, in which he will not bow
But rule the others - as he tries doing now
Setting foundation for this new economy
Was none other than killing his enemies

Now he faces their mighty ghosts as they haunt him on through the night, making him want to die

"We know you plead for the destruction and war
We know you grieve, grieve for your soul
We feel deeply, that you're afraid of tomorrow
We'll hear your screams unless you end this terror"

"Go away you silhouettes, you are but the fairy queens!
I ruined your existence, I'll ruin your resting peace!"

"You better think of what you're saying, you old man!
How dare you confront the spirits of the dead?
Now we’ll enslave both you and your men
You all shall face the eternal judgement!"

"Seize them! Take them away!"

"Now you’ll face the judge - our eternal queen
You better beg for mercy or be doomed for eternity!"

"I will beg no one! Not you, nor the "queen"!
You all better beg me to kill you instantly!"

"Oh no, how can this be? His power is overwhelming me...
Run my allies... Run..."

"Destroy all, men! Destroy everything!
No one can stop us, We've got eternity!
Thank you, dear fairies for immortalising me!
Now I can doom mankind for all eternity!"
Track Name: The Promise
Cold was the night when I was told of all miseries known to men
Secrets worth more than gold, I lost my soul then.
This grotesque tome of wretchedness held malevolent runes that showed me pain
All the pain and suffering that you shall obtain!

Misery to the world, I've come to spread
I'm your worst fear, from now till the last day
I am your pain and I'll be your death
I'll make you scream, now and always!
You'll remember grief that comes with my face
Your flesh I will tear, It's time for my reign!

All these ancient scrolls have shown me a new way, a way of grotesque endangering
I’m a deathless apparition which brings your end with solemnity and brutality

For what you have hoped that will be your end
That will bring you peace and rest in this reign
Will just make worse and pain will just blend
Blood in your tears will show (that) there's no way
To get off this carnival of the damned
No good will you gain under my command

You're of no worth if you're dead - not to me, 'cause I enjoy your pain and suffering
I'm the supreme core of evil in all being
I adore my monstrosity
Track Name: The Horror
The stars are falling, the sky is burning, the end seems to be nigh
Every living creature is trembling, praying soon to die
The fire is spreading through the lands as a symbol of his reign
There’s nothing left but tantalising pain, will it ever end?

“As a servant in my kingdom you will need no soul,
So let it bleed and embrace the darkness while I take control.
Let mercury into your veins and may sulphur be your breath
For when it’s done you won’t be afraid of death, ever again”

‘Cause when they’re dead
They rise again
The torture never ends
They’re screaming

For generations his rotten hordes executed terrors untold
Blasphemous prophecies were true: he’s never getting old!
Blessed with immortality and a mind set on sin
With sardonic wrath his hate is burning deeply from within

Appropriation of seven kingdoms is the only dream he ever had
His merciless fleet manned by lead-filled corpses is ready to cross the sea of blood


Dominantly marching forth, he’s reaching his goal
The unquestioned rule of the macrocosm as whole
Scorching the grounds and blazing is his campaign
His constitution only recognises pain

Never-ending pain
Track Name: The Pact
On the reach of the fifth kingdom
An ominous darkness surrounds the road
My legion froze, completely lifeless
As my breath is getting cold

What is this force? Where am I now?
Who is denying my flaming crown?
Where is the road? Where did it go?
I can’t feel the rocks below

Show yourself to me!

In this night there is nothing that’s bright and I barely see the ashen light
An eclipse of the face protrudes from the dark, this ghastly face I recognise
How can this be? My eyes disagree, but standing right here, in front of me
Is the Eternal Queen with a face so pale and her eyes shut tight behind a veil

“Never again” were the only words that she said

As she opened her eyes, I was consumed by the sheer absence of humanity
Two vortices arise revealing the darkness where her soul used to be

Such a glorious sight excites me beyond my grasp of reality
Her icy skin sending chills from within, was she really once my enemy?

I hold her tight while my flame shines bright and her soul consumes all of the other light
For a while there was no sound, just a black sun high above the ground

Lightning splits the skies
Unites the power in our eyes
Fires ignite our breath
We transcend life and death

Her presence makes me feel like I could burn the world
We shall rule as the ageless tyrants in the everlasting afterworld
Perpetual cries of the baseborn are the hymn to our joint reign
With disdain we shall wipe the life off this horrid astral plane

Never again will you be left out of my plan
Never again!
I will lead you to conquer worlds

What is this force? Who am I now?
Who is this jewel inside my crown?
What is this soul? Where does it go?
This vile feeling I can’t control

The flames burn so cold, but the frostbite is hot
United we’re stronger than we thought
With our powers combined we will end all the lives
Of the breathing scum that’s still alive

All must die! Pray for all to die!
Track Name: The Battle
The night devoured the morning, the fires burnt the ground
A worthy foe on the battlefield was nowhere to be found
Armies fell and rose again, to serve them on their side
They march on with audacity that cannot be denied
Onto the last victory, they’re ready for the game
The closing play in this theatre of pain
The curtain shall come down when the last kingdom’s controlled
By eternal darkness, as the prophecy foretold

The last battalion of the fair
Quavering in despair
Their champion arose
“We must take no remorse
…in our own death”

They’re flying high, observing puppets on the stage
Every scene filling them with bitterness and rage
Putting all resources into the final fight
Vast armies stretch beyond the line of sight
The air is getting thick from the grizzling sounds
Of weapons slicing flesh and bodies hitting ground
Past the point of no return, the oath has been sworn
A new sea of blood is bound here to be formed

Have no fear, pain is here

Fire! Fire!
Liberating, everlasting, mesmerising flame
Fire! The flames grow higher
The soul-consuming. dominating messenger of pain

Fire! Fire!
Consumes the flesh, reduces to ash, all that’s in its way
Fire! Sings like a choir
There’s no escape from melodies of abysmal dismay

On the other side, in the haunting dark the Eternal Queen was ready to strike
Casting spells of unspeakable woe, each one more deadly as her power grows

A courageous guild started a coup

They ambushed the Queen with a magical cloud
Blinded by rage she let her guard down
With all their strength they vigorously fought
For hours on end, until she was caught
They dragged her far away from here, never to be found
She was put on a torture wheel, head facing the ground
For every fallen ally they threw a sack of stones
The ambiance was filled with the sound of her cracking bones
They hacked her into pieces, cut every vein
She couldn’t die but she felt excruciating pain
As the final step they set her body alight
Her immortal soul was crushed with this gruesome sight

From pain receptors’ overdose
She couldn’t move or breathe
Her soul collapsed
She couldn’t stand it any more
And once again
She was dead

Her soul began the journey towards the sky
Leaving her torturers petrified
Impervious darkness covers the plains
No light will there ever shine again
The Flaming Crown felt a part of him die
Absurdly still hoping that she’s alive
Riding swiftly towards the cursed site
This fate he will not recognise

The place where once she stood
But all that was left
Was burnt flesh
Devoured by emotions, his madness reached new heights
Cathartically killing everything in sight
The gateway from the afterlife was permanently closed
No undead soldiers evermore arose
Enemies and allies were all wiped alike
Abidingly put down by his fatal strike
Over his own actions he lost all control
For where was his soul is now a massive hole

He won’t stop until they’re all dead
If he could, he would cut his own head
All the world united to try to take him down
But they failed to even touch his crown

How can you kill that which will not die
To whom the comfort of death is denied?
How do you crush that which has no soul
That lost its purpose and ultimate goal?

Waves of soldiers met their gruesome end
Some even by their own hand
They embrace their deaths as a welcome release
From this living hell stripped off any sort of peace

Now they’re all dead
The sea is full of lead

Sitting on the edge of a bloody shore
Of his sanity he slowly regains control
All around him are fields of corpses
In his mind he still hears their voices
Outcome of this battle, the final score
He lost all he was working for
After a deep thought, to him it occurred
He is now the ruler of (an) empty world
Track Name: The Regret
It was less than a century ago when you came
Claiming your innocence
With words that our destinies are the same
Slowly they fade away...
Just the image of your burning flesh
...burning, burning...
Now it’s the only thing on my mind
...wish I left it all behind...
They slaughtered you for a wrong cause
Oh, how have I been blind...
I wish I was dead myself
So we could rule eternity, all again

Soon I'll be with you, my precious love

I will torture myself to death
To repay all I owe to you
I will come to you as pure as a God...
