01. The Declaration Of War

[Instrumental]


02. Storm Of Steel

Another gory carnival beckons
Going through shredded wire entanglements
Attack through dense rifle fire
Over the edge into the trench - storm of steel

Iron splinters battering down on our heads
Wade through a storm of steel
Shots exchanged at point blank range
Dying in a storm of steel

Human sacrifice
On enemy soil
In the grip of rage
On the brink of death

A full battle-strength company going down
To a few demoralized men
Feeling completely apathetic
Our rage broke down like a storm

My eyes are drenched with blood
Bleeding to death in a murderous sector of trench
Behind crimson surging clouds
Hear the echoing cry of war - storm of steel

Immense desire to destroy
Inflamed by berserk fury
Corpses lying all around
In this apocalyptic scene

Human sacrifice
On enemy soil
In the grip of rage
On the brink of death

Iron splinters battering down on our heads
Wade through a storm of steel
Shots exchanged at point blank range
Dying in a storm of steel

Storm of steel


03. Fire Storm

Shells of shrapnel flying over our heads
Fountains of mud pile up to the sky

Atrocious artillery fire
Creating a colossal wall of flame
Rattling machine guns
Spewing fire like mad machines
Thunderous roaring
Bombs looping high up in the air
Shells falling down in the trenches
Soldiers collapse in a bloody heap

Fire storm

Incredible massing of forces
In the hour of destiny
To fight for a distant future
And the violence it unleashed

The clouds of our gas shells beaten back by a headwind
Overwhelmed by the blunt force, a raging fire-storm

This place looks grisly
Scattered around this scorched site are bodies
Burned beyond recognition

Shells of shrapnel flying over our heads
Fountains of mud pile up to the sky

Atrocious artillery fire
Creating a colossal wall of flame
Rattling machine guns
Spewing fire like mad machines
Thunderous roaring
Bombs looping high up in the air
Shells falling down in the trenches
Soldiers collapse in a bloody heap

Fire storm

Incredible massing of forces
In the hour of destiny
To fight for a distant future
And the violence it unleashed


04. The Killing Is Faceless

Bombardments pulverising trenches
Soldiers ripped to pieces
Or buried underneath the earth
All must die - the killing is faceless

Hammering the enemy
Heavy casualties
Clinging to a death trap

Never cease fire
Continuous assaults
Artillery bombardments

Infantry shock tactics
Artillery positions
Firing down the hill

Heading for disaster
Marching on and on
Through an endless field of craters

The shelling remains relentless
Human remains hanging in tree branches
Fighting in fortified graveyards
All must die - the killing is faceless

Stormtroopers lead the attack
Thrown into combat, no turning back
Flamethrowers clear the trenches
Fight for your country, die without glory

Struggling onward wade through mud
No breakthrough, counter attack
Mission impossible, all hope is lost
Fight for your country, die without glory

Bombardments pulverising trenches
Soldiers ripped to pieces
Or buried underneath the earth
All must die - the killing is faceless

Hammering the enemy
Heavy casualties
Clinging to a death trap

Never cease fire
Continuous assaults
Artillery bombardments

Infantry shock tactics
Artillery positions
Firing down the hill

Heading for disaster
Marching on and on
Through an endless field of craters

Stormtroopers lead the attack
Thrown into combat, no turning back
Flamethrowers clear the trenches
Fight for your country, die without glory

Struggling onward wade through mud
No breakthrough, counter attack
Mission impossible, all hope is lost
Fight for your country, die without glory

The shelling remains relentless
Human remains hanging in tree branches
Fighting in fortified graveyards
All must die - the killing is faceless


05. Under The Sign Of The Iron Cross

Born of arrogance
Conceived from a plan millenniums ago
Tactical supremacy
The seeds of disaster already in the plan
No more loyalty
Strike hard, kill fast and claim the victory
Defeat the enemy
In an all out war

The enemies are overrun
We'll force them to their knees
Behold the master plan
We'll force them to their knees

Evade the stalemate
Sweep the country in a decisive blow
Provoke the enemy
Out of their defense and destroy them all at once
Invading armies
Crush the enemy with a massive strike
All hail to the emperor
Under the sign of the iron cross

For my country here is my master plan
We will overrun the west, then take the east
No two front war, we can only take them one by one
"A man if born and not made a strategist"
They have chosen me to be the mastermind
For God and empire this is my master plan

The enemies are overrun
We'll force them to their knees
Behold the master plan
We'll force them to their knees

Born of arrogance
Conceived from a plan millenniums ago
Tactical supremacy
The seeds of disaster already in the plan
No more loyalty
Strike hard, kill fast and claim the victory
All hail to the emperor
Under the sign of the iron cross


06. Chaos Reigns At Dawn

Bloodthirsty eyes
Lying in wait
Behind rifles and machine guns
In the dead land
Fighting, raging, killing
Take no prisoners
No living soul in the wasteland
We want no prisoners

The guns ahead fall silent
Defenders have been finished off
The ground is littered with corpses
Chaos reigns at dawn

Hovering clouds of choking yellow gas
Drifting slowly about
Death is spreading around
There where the wind blows
No air left to breathe

Emerging from clouds of dust and smoke
Shock troopers appear, from the front line
Feel no dread of approaching death
Chaos reigns at dawn

Phosphor shells explode
Men rolling on the ground
Desperate horror
Unable to quench the flames

The wounded are wailing around
Crying for help
Pale faces staring into the eyes of death

Bloodthirsty eyes
Lying in wait
Behind rifles and machine guns
In the dead land
Fighting, raging, killing
Take no prisoners
No living soul in the wasteland
We want no prisoners

The guns ahead fall silent
Defenders have been finished off
The ground is littered with corpses
Chaos reigns at dawn

Hovering clouds of choking yellow gas
Drifting slowly about
Death is spreading around
There where the wind blows
No air left to breathe

Emerging from clouds of dust and smoke
Shock troopers appear, from the front line
Feel no dread of approaching death
Chaos reigns at dawn


07. Through Byzantine Hemispheres

Beast in the east
Cross the frontiers
As a cure for the pain
They reclaim their lands

Harsh winter conditions
Poorly equipped men
Rebel militia fighting
For both sides

Massacres conducted on local population
Occupational forces committing ethnic cleansing

Masses of men collide
In a fight over dead land
The puppets on the front line
Their ignorance is used for a lost cause

Through Byzantine Hemispheres

Masses of men collide
In a fight over dead land
The puppets on the front line
Their ignorance is used for a lost cause

Through Byzantine Hemispheres

Beast in the east
Cross the frontiers
As a cure for the pain
They reclaim their lands

Massacres conducted on local population
Occupational forces committing ethnic cleansing


08. The Red Baron

Ace of aces
Emerging from the sun
Spraying bullets
Go down under his guns

Red Baron
Eagle in disguise
Red Baron
Death across the sky

Wing commander
Diving from above
Master of dogfights
Unmatched in victories

Living legend
You cannot die
War propaganda
We need you alive

Red Baron
Eagle in disguise
Red Baron
Death across the sky

Red Baron
Eagle in disguise
Red Baron
Death across the sky

Living legend
You cannot die
War propaganda
We need you alive

Red Baron
Eagle in disguise
Red Baron
Death across the sky

Ace of aces
Emerging from the sun
Spraying bullets
He went down under the guns


09. On Fields Of Death & Desolation

The shelling is waxing to a demented fury
Soldiers buried alive, swallowed by the earth
Out of the haze, a dense line of men
Begins to approach over corpse strewn roads
Gigantic roaring of innumerable guns
The wave of fire has moved up to the first lines
Decisive battle, the last charge is here
The great moment's at hand

Join our march for victory
Over enemy soil
Affect the course of destiny
For my king and my land

The earth is raped
And sown with dead
Ruined beyond recognition
The madness never ends

Trapped in their trenches, they've got nowhere to run
Declining resistance, they're falling one by one
Outnumbered and wounded, they await their final blow
With bajonets on our rifles we hunt them down

Join our march for victory
Over enemy soil
Affect the course of destiny
For my king and my land

The earth is raped
And sown with dead
Ruined beyond recognition
The madness never ends

The war is over, the killings' done
All hail to those who joined our march for victory
The fields are empty, the souls are gone
Of those who lie on fields of death and desolation
A kingdom gone, all hail to them
We gave their lives for fields of death and desolation
