01. Cut To The Heart

All our blood reaches boiling
As the war songs are sung
As the sailors are toiling
Hatred drips from our tongues

The enemy's vessel
Comes into our sight
We know we shall drink to their bloodshed
In our galley tonight

This is our prayer to the spirits of war
Grant us the strength that you've granted before
This is our prayer to the spirits of war
If bravery strengthens our enemy's hearts,
May the power of our bloodlust strengthen us more

There shall be no quarter
To the man who will stand as our foe
His life will be forfeit
To our merciless blows
There shall be no quarter
And there's nothing that you can do
But fall to your knees as we
Cut to the heart of you

In the smoke and the mayhem
We are rulers of all that we see
Monarchs of warfare
Commanding our subjects to bleed

They fall down before us
Their humility spilled on the deck
And they smile at their masters
Through the grins we have carved in their necks

This is our prayer to the spirits of war
Grant us the strength that you've granted before
This is our prayer to the spirits of war
If bravery strengthens our enemy's hearts,
May the power of our bloodlust strengthen us more

There shall be no quarter
To the man who will stand as our foe
His life will be forfeit
To our merciless blows
There shall be no quarter
And there's nothing that you can do
But fall to your knees as we
Cut to the heart of you

There shall be no quarter
To the man who will stand as our foe
His life will be forfeit
To our merciless blows
There shall be no quarter
And there's nothing that you can do
But fall to your knees as we
Cut to the heart of you

There shall be no quarter
To the man who will stand as our foe
His life will be forfeit
To our merciless blows
There shall be no quarter
And there's nothing that you can do
But fall to your knees as we
Cut to the heart of you


02. Demons In The Dark

Painfully the lust for blood
Grows in the hearts of northern men
To understand it's siren call
Is far beyond their mortal ken

Plunder and a womans touch
Meat and gold and wine
Enemies all torn to shreds
These visions occupy their minds

Between the nightfall
And the shining morn
The silence shattered
A sounding horn

Dragon boats
Faster than a shark
Deliver warriors
Deliver demons in the dark

Sinful demons in the dark
Bloodthirsty demons in the dark

Cautiously, the refugees
Seek shelter from their fate
With northern warriors searching still
Hunting in a frenzied state

Darkness gives their leaders hope
Shelters them from view
But frightened cries betray their lives
The slaughter starts anew

Between the nightfall
And the shining morn
The silence shattered
A sounding horn

Dragon boats
Faster than a shark
Deliver warriors
Deliver demons in the dark

Sinful demons in the dark
Bloodthirsty demons in the dark

Burn the village down
Cast the dead away
Burn the village down
Leave the priest to pray
Burn the village down
Drink the blood of the dead
And be initiated into our brotherhood of dread

Between the nightfall
And the shining morn
The silence shattered
A sounding horn

Dragon boats
Faster than a shark
Deliver warriors
Deliver demons in the dark

Sinful demons in the dark
Bloodthirsty demons in the dark

Sinful demons in the dark
Bloodthirsty demons in the dark


03. Terraphobic

I shan't forget the moment
That changed my life forever more
The day I found her lying
Aqueous upon the shore

Hair of bright vermilion
Skin of pallid white
Ensanguined holes within her face
No eyes to grant her sight

A child ocean born
A daughter of the sea
Now of her home forlorn
Abhors the Earth beneath her feet
A child ocean born
A daughter of the sea
Now of her home forlorn
Abhors the Earth beneath her feet

A decade's past and still I
See her in my dreams so haunting
Her tortured cries of pain
Fill my ears as if in taunting

The Terraphobic
Abhorrent accident of creation
Cast from the Sea
In agony without cessation

I thought her dead until
Her body shook with mortal fear
A ragged breath was drawn
Her face was stained with blood and tears

As I stood gazing
At this huddled mass upon the sand
I cried in terror for
She'd been struck visionless by her own hand

A child ocean born
A daughter of the sea
Now of her home forlorn
Abhors the Earth beneath her feet
A child ocean born
A daughter of the sea
Now of her home forlorn
Abhors the Earth beneath her feet

A decade's past and still I
See her in my dreams so haunting
Her tortured cries of pain
Fill my ears as if in taunting

The Terraphobic
Abhorrent accident of creation
Cast from the Sea
In agony without cessation

Locked in this tenebrous cell
Her home in lieu of the ocean
A face so blank and cold
A hollow voice with no emotion

We called her mad for she
Despised the world that we so cherish
Yet for no more than spite
The denizens of land shall assign themselves to perish

A decade's past and still I
See her in my dreams so haunting
Her tortured cries of pain
Fill my ears as if in taunting

The Terraphobic
Abhorrent accident of creation
Cast from the Sea
In agony without cessation

A decade's past and still I
See her in my dreams so haunting
Her tortured cries of pain
Fill my ears as if in taunting

The Terraphobic
Abhorrent accident of creation
Cast from the Sea
In agony without cessation


04. Wave Of Predation

May I tell you of my passion of the dead
Erotic only in it's subtext
Experimental fantasy, realized just recently
Gourmets, but only of a subset

Beware ya pauper
Likewise ye men of power
We hunters roam the sea
Seeking whom we may devour
Beware ya pauper
Likewise ye men of power
We hunters roam the sea
Seeking whom we may devour

We drifted on
Till starvation struck and decency was gone
And now we have changed
We gleefully embrace a life deranged

The finest wines, like vinegar, fall bitter from my lips
Like soot and ash, the choicest roasted game
The taste I crave, a scarlet flow in transit to the crypts
Each meal I savor had a name

Beware ya pauper
Likewise ye men of power
We hunters roam the sea
Seeking whom we may devour
Beware ya pauper
Likewise ye men of power
We hunters roam the sea
Seeking whom we may devour

We drifted on
Till starvation struck and decency was gone
And now we have changed
We gleefully embrace a life deranged

We butcher the flesh of the living
To consume the flesh of the dead

Our legend grows as empty vessels drifts into the ports
No sign of crew save the blood stains on the deck
All men shall quake at the mention of our names
A plague in every tongue dialect

We drifted on
Till starvation struck and decency was gone
And now we have changed
We gleefully embrace a life deranged

When winds do blow
Cold enough to chill your very soul
And when the tempest wails
Keep one eye on the sea for scarlet sails


05. To The Drums We Rise

I remember the blasphemy
As They took us to slavery
Where is your god to save you now
Now fall on your knees and bow

I remember the Dowed remains
Where They burned my fathers remains
I remember the stench of death
As I drew my last gray breath

For slaves forevermore
No one will hear our cries
Sink to the ships of war
To the beat of the drum we rise

Three years have come and gone
Since last I saw my own
Now my back is broken and bent
And my life is nearly spent

We are proof of mankind's disgrace
Hold of the warrior race
Never shall we be free
Caught in the vast machine

For slaves forevermore
No one will hear our cries
Take to the ships of war
Our cannons with burning eyes

For slaves forevermore
Our humanity suffers enough
Sink to the ships of war
To the beat of the drums we rise

And they cry!
Row! Row!
Carry us to the attack
Row! Row!
Take us acrossed and back
Row! Row!
Carry us onto the kill
Row! Row!

To the beat of the drums
To the beat of the drums
To the beat of the drums
To the beat of the drums we rise


06. Full Speed Ahead

Battle
Speed, the Captain calls
The enemy's in sight
On your oars, every man
The drum is beating faster, faster

Through the waves, this vessel glides
Propelled by blood and tears
Bones will shatter, muscles tear
We must obey our master, master

Row! Row! The war machine fueled
By the blood of it's slaves
Onward through the endless crashing waves
Row! Row! The war machine fueled
By the blood of it's slaves
Onward 'till the Captain sends us to our graves

Full speed ahead
Through countless miles of Ocean we have bled
Full speed ahead
We'll push this mighty ship
until the day we are dead

Attack speed, the Captain calls...
The enemy draws near
Whip meets flesh as spirits break
The drum is beating faster, faster

Pull the oars, with all your might
Thirsty swords await us
Slaves and plunder, all the same
Possessed by others ever, after

Row! Row! The war machine fueled
By the blood of it's slaves
Onward through the endless crashing waves
Row! Row! The war machine fueled
By the blood of it's slaves
Onward 'till the Captain sends us to our graves

Full speed ahead
Through countless miles of Ocean we have bled
Full speed ahead
We'll push this mighty ship
until the day we are dead

Stripes on our backs
The sign of the lash
A cruelty that can't be forgot
Memories remain
Of the ones that were slain
Long after our corpses all rot

Ramming speed, the Captain calls
The enemy must die
Every single enemy will die before the day is done
The drum is beating faster, faster

Kill them all! Kill them all!
The Captain screams in rage
The hull gives in, the sea bursts forth
This ship is headed for disaster

Row! Row! The war machine fueled
By the blood of it's slaves
Onward through the endless crashing waves
Row! Row! The war machine fueled
By the blood of it's slaves
Onward

Full speed ahead
Through countless miles of Ocean we have bled
Full speed ahead
We'll push this mighty ship
until the day we are dead

Full speed ahead
Full speed ahead
Full speed ahead
Full speed ahead


07. Into The North

The sea is gone
Throw my shadow toward the surface
The icy wind draws upon us to the moon
Theres not one man
Without force onto the surface
So to the north this old legend goes on

The captain pushes onward
Deep into this frozen hell
We must keep fighting for our lives
And shouting on and we shall sail

Into the north we will sail,
We will sail to the end of the world
To conquer the unknown
Into the north we will sail,
We will sail to the end of our days

This passing night
Takes another from our numbers
Row viciously night is upon now each of our own
And still we sail
The force of terror ship asunder
The captains mad but still along he makes us row

The captain pushes onward
Deep into this frozen hell
We must keep fighting for our lives
And searching if we shall fail

Into the north we will sail,
Where we'll sail to the end of the world
And conquer the unknown
Into the north we will sail,
Where we'll sail to the end of our days

The captains struggle
Where victory lies
upon us, how will this do
He brings message for this frozen ship
Theres nothing special in this frozen hell

And then his body sinking
Deep into this frozen hell
To late to for us to forfeit
To reach our final hell

Into the north we will sail,
We will sail to the end of the world
To conquer the unknown
Into the north we will sail,
We will sail to the end of our days

Into the north we will sail,
We will sail to the end of the world
To conquer the unknown
Into the north we will sail,
We will sail to the end of our days

Into the north!!


10. Feeding Frenzy

Shadow!

The smell of blood in the water is as
Thick as fortress walls and twice as strong
The predator moves with unimaginable Grace and speed.

Death rides on crimson waves
With not a scythe but jaws of steel.
Each action chosen
With precision to feast upon its prey.

Face of terror the end is near
Bodies writhing with pain and fear
A watery grave welcomes you in
Each razor sharp tooth is a nail in the coffin.
Face of terror the end is near
Bodies writhing with pain and fear
A watery grave welcomes you in
Each razor sharp tooth is a nail in the coffin.

Fatality comes on seas of blood
In the silent ocean depths
Circling its victims with eyes of no
Color or penitence
Claiming another victim
Man learns once again,
Saltwater is a poor anesthetic
For an impromptu amputation

Face of terror the end is near
Bodies writhing with pain and fear
A watery grave welcomes you in
Each razor sharp tooth is a nail in the coffin.
Face of terror the end is near
Bodies writhing with pain and fear
A watery grave welcomes you in
Each razor sharp tooth is a nail in the coffin.

Feeding frenzy the carnage begins
Basic instinct to feed on human skin
Total carnage the scene is set
In the end you'll beg for death

The whitecaps break as the beast rises from the deep
His gaping maw inviting eternal sleep
His glistening skin stained scarlet with blood
Submerged again within the sanguine flood

Feeding frenzy the carnage begins
Basic instinct to feed on human skin
Total carnage the scene is set
In the end you'll beg for death


11. Ocean Metal

Pandemonium
The masses flood the shore
From the sea is heard
A massive metal roar

People wait and see
The galleon come in sight
Her mast reaches to the clouds
Her sails as black as night

Anticipation grows as the vessel
Pulls into the port
From the hold of the ship a cacophony grows
Of the heavy metal sort

We've come to reclaim what is rightfully ours
Said the Captain to his crew
This metal shall return to the hands
Of the Chosen few

This is the final hour
For all the infidels
Who seek to abuse this metallic power
This is their retribution
These warriors of the sea
Will rid the world of this pollution

Ocean Metal
The warriors are coming
Ocean Metal
We'll take your breath away
Ocean Metal
You're drowning in the
Ocean Metal
You'd better beware

Ocean Metal
The warriors are coming
Ocean Metal
We'll take your breath away
Ocean Metal
You're drowning in the
Ocean Metal

One by one
The warriors gather for attack
Sabers raised up high
There is no turning back

Heretics will pay
Upon the Captain's mark
We'll tear into their flesh
And feed them to the sharks

Death to this lie is the battle cry
Of these ghostly tortured souls
Slitting the throats of the heretics
False metal's deadly toll

The Captain surveys all the carnage he's caused
With an awful kind of glee
We'll take this Metal back to our ship
And return it to the sea

This is the final hour
For all the infidels
Who seek to abuse this metallic power
This is their retribution
These warriors of the sea
Will rid the world of this pollution

Ocean Metal
The warriors are coming
Ocean Metal
We'll take your breath away
Ocean Metal
You're drowning in the
Ocean Metal
You'd better beware

Ocean Metal
The warriors are coming
Ocean Metal
We'll take your breath away
Ocean Metal
You're drowning in the
Ocean Metal

Rise! Rise!
Warriors of Metal take up your arms
Fight! Fight!
The infidels

Rise! Rise!
Warriors of Metal take up your arms
Fight! Fight!
The infidels

Ocean Metal
The warriors are coming
Ocean Metal
We'll take your breath away
Ocean Metal
You're drowning in the
Ocean Metal
You'd better beware

Ocean Metal
The warriors are coming
Ocean Metal
We'll take your breath away
Ocean Metal
You're drowning in the
Ocean Metal
