01. Metalstorm

Music & lyrics by Manilla Road
From the grave comes the storm
fire and ice, and battle horns.
Through the night a dark star burns
Titans fight, the King returns.

Demons eyes spread fear in pain
Throughout the minds of those too sane
To realize this is no game,
Drinking the lies in Heaven's name.

Spear of tin, forged by Muse
Majik mound of Crom.
Some they learn, some they burn
In the wake of Metalstorm.

From the veils blows the storm.
Lightning strikes from the sword.
Warriors ride upon the wind.
All Hallows Night, the hunt begins.

Lord of Flies doth spread the plage
Throughout the lives of those to blame.
For all the lies in Heaven's name
The Lords of Light shall rise again.

Holy Grail, Silver sails,
Court of Avalon.
Some they learn, some they burn
In the wake of Metalstorm.


02. Open The Gates

Music & lyrics by Manilla Road
Before the walls come curmbling
Down around our feet;
Before the empires fall
And Hell enslaves the free;
Before our time runs out
The spells must soon be cast;
We'll raise the banners high
And storm the gates at last.

Tonight we fight.
The Norns decide our fate.
Fight well in Hell !
Open the Gates !

This night the Gates of Hell
Come crashing to the ground.
The sword Excalibur
Was lost but now is found.
Arthurs does rise again,
The Dragons Lord of old.
Just like the Bards have said
In all the tales they told.

Tonight we fight.
The Norns decide our fate.
Fight well in Hell !
Open the Gates !


03. Astronomica

Music & lyrics by Manilla Road
Under the stars
It's written in the cards,
All the myths that bards
Have sung through history.

The future's not so cold
Just trust the ways of old
Magik can save the soul
And set the spirit free.
It's not just fantasy.

Heavenly bodies,
Astrological minds,
Seeking out the wisdom
Of the stars at night,
To snatch from the heavens
The thunderbolt of light
And then the sceptre
From the tyrat's side.

Nigth after nigth
They shine on so bright,
All the ancient ligths
Shall never fade away.

Astronomica !
The laws that bind us all
To keep us from the fall
Unto the stars we gaze
And pray

Living for the future,
Living for the night,
Living for the masters,
Holy guardians of light.

Jupites is rising
Over the table round,
Sword of fire and Lightning
Ancients Rites have found.

Fight after fight
They shine on so bright,
All the ancient knights
Shall never fade away.
Astronomica !

The laws that bind us all
To keeps us from the fall
Unto the stars we gaze
And pray.

Universal wisdom
Of the Gods of old;
A conquerer's freedom
Is the danger zone.
Astromomic wasteland
Darkened and cold
Where the new born King stands
With sword of the throne.

Nigth after nigth
They shine on so bright
All the ancient ligths
Shall never fade away.

Astronomica,
The laws that bind us all
To keep us from the fall.
Unto the stars we gaze
And pray.


04. Weavers Of The Web

Music & lyrics by Manilla Road
Cries will fill the dead of nigth
Screaming for the morning light.
Insane maneuvers of the mind.
Shall sow the wrath of all mankind.

In crystal towers off the shore
I've seen the ligth of evermore
But politics has barred the door
And left us no way out but war.

It could happen today
Unless we learn to change our ways
Warlords lead us to death,
They're Weavers of the Web.

My soul calls out to all of life
To stop this hell and end the strife
Stand us for your humane rigth
Reject the web with all your might.

Inside the charms of anciente lore
There's magik truth and much, much more,
But new beliefs have slammed the door,
Shut out the light of Everymore.

It could happen today
Unless we learn to change our ways.
Warlords lead us to death,
They're Weavers of the Web.


05. The Ninth Wave

Music & lyrics by Manilla Road
For all the tortured
And all the slaves
Arthur did rise
On the Ninth Wave

To rule the Britains
And lead the brave
Out of the darkness
Of their day.

Dragonships
Rise from the sea
Three Queens bring
The new born King.

From Merlin's Magik
The stones were placed.
He raised the mist
Opened the gates.

From crystal waters
The Lady's Lake
Did rise the sword
Of Midgar's fate.

Dragonships
Rise from the sea
Three Queens bring
The new born King.

There once was a time
When devine light shown
And the Lady of the Lake
Raised the sword of the Throne.

And the wind shall howl
Totentanz
Einhereir of Valhalla
Rise

Dragonships
Rise from the sea
Three Queens bring
The new born King.

Valhallan warriors
Ride be his side
The Dragon mist
Crawls through the night.

Avalon's iron gates
No longer cry
Einherierer
Storm to the fight.

Dragonships
Rise from the sea
Three Queens bring
The new born King


06. Heavy Metal To The World

Music & lyrics by Manilla Road
The fires of Mars shall burn
From this we all shall learn;
The gates unbarred at last

Heavy metal in my ears
Is all I ever want to hear.
Before the sands of time run out
We'll stand our ground and all scream out !
Scream out !

Heavy Metal
To the worl tonight,
Heavy Metal
To the...

Heavy Metal's here to stay,
We'll never see it's dying day.
Let slaugthers truth be in the past.
Let's give our youth a lasting chance,
Scream out !

Heavy Metal
To the world tonight,
Heavy Metal
To the...

Heavy Metal
To the World tonight,
Heavy Metal
To the world.


07. The Fires Of Mars

Music & lyrics by Manilla Road
The fires of Mars shall burn
From this we all shall learn;
The gates unbarred at last
Banishing the past.
The standard raised on high
Pen-Dragon rides this night
Against the mighty Horde
With legion of the Sword......the Sword.

Warriors at the end of time,
Masters of light,
Feed the fires, storm the gates
It's not too late.

The mighty spear of Tiw
Drinks deep the blood anew
Of Demon Lords from Hell
Who are poisoning the well......the well.

Warriors at the end of time,
Master of light,
Feed the fires, storm the gates
It's not too late.

The Trinity, three Norns of Fate,
All-Father's Knights open the gates.
Golden wisdom from the stars
Bids us light the Fires of Mars,
Light the Fires of Mars.

In war there's always loss
All victories have their cost.
But hope shall conquer hate
For light Open the Gates,
Open the Gates.

Through the mists of Hell we ride
To the battle side by side
For survival of mankind
The Fires of Mars shall burn this night.

Through the mists of Hell we ride
To the battle side by side
For survival of mankind
The Fires of Mars shall burn this night,
Burn this night.


08. Road Of Kings

Music & lyrics by Manilla Road
Rising swords
Lead the sons into the battle.
Rising stars mark this night,
The Dragon is re-born.

Demon Lords

What do you see inside your mind?
Is it your dreams or just the torment of life?
Break away from your anxieties today
Don't ever let them drag you down.

Conquer for life inside your dreams.
We'll never outlive all the schemes
Of darker spirits in between.
We're on the road, the Road of Kings.

What do you see in your minds eye?
Is it the fate of mankind to die?
Do you know or do you want to find the road
Back to the light before the dawn?
Conquer for life inside your dreams.
We'll never outlive all the schemes
Of darker spirits in between.
We're on the road, the Road of Kings.

What did you see behind the line?
Was it really what you expected to find?
On the road you must learn to take is slow,
A King won't rise before his time.

Conquer for life inside your dreams.
We'll never outlive all the schemes
Of darker spirits in between.
We're on the road, the Road of Kings.

Strong we will ve
On the Road of Kings
For what glory it brings us.


09. Hour Of The Dragon

Music & lyrics by Manilla Road
Rising swords
Lead the sons into the battle.
Rising stars mark this night,
The Dragon is re-born.

Demon Lords
Shall not fell me from the saddle.
Tiw and Mars mark this night,
We blow the victory horn.
Blow on.

To wait till tomorrow
Is for fools in their sorrow.
It's now or never.
It's the hour of the Dragon.

Muse of chords
Raise the Dragon from the castle.
Northern stars burning bright,
We free the Holy Sword.

Face the Horde
Die for glory and Valhalla.
Fires of Mars burns this night.
Ride with the Dragon Lord.
Ride on.

To wait till tomorrow
Is for fools in their sorrow.
It's now or never.
It's the hour of the Dragon.


10. Witches Brew

Music & lyrics by Manilla Road
Inside the maze of fire
Kindled with desire
Boiling the cauldron true
Filled with witches' brew.

Three Norns stand at the gates,
Mater of the Fates
Who keep the ancient runes,
Howl at the silver moon.

Would you drink the witches' brew,
Blood of wisdom shed for you?
Watch the dead rise from the grave
And turn the monsters into slaves.

Father of Tiw
Long dead warriors rise for you.
We drink the brew.

Fire and water, earth and sky,
Feast of torches lights the night;
Hounds of Yeth bay at the moon;
The blood of life is Witches' brew.

Father of Tiw
Einhereir doth rise for you.
We drink the brew,
Witches' brew.
