Track Name: The Return of Ancient Purity
Eternity ago
The world was pure and lifeless
The Nature was dead and beautiful
No Life desecrated the Earth
The Rain was falling from the dark clouds
The Fire exploded from below
The Stones shacked in cataclysms
The Air was black and venomous
No order was enslaving the Earth
Lords of Chaos laughed from the Mist
The Elements collapsed and mixed
Creating smoke and steam, mud and dust
But then the Life appeared
The filth corrupted the world
And the cry of a new-born child
Was an epitaph for the dying Purity
It must be destroyed...
We know
The Elements shall unite once again
And this implosion
Shall disintegrate the living things
Only Evil beings shall survive Armageddon
And their Life shall be replaced with
Undeadly Immortality
We are the ones who hail that hour
When the world will be cleansed of Life
We shall see its fading
In the raging Apocalyptic Fire
We'll become Undead Lords of the earth
And let any of humans shall continue to live
They will fulfill
Our flaming Hunger
With their blood, pain and fear
...The Earth becomes the Stone...
...The Water turns into the Ice...
...The Air condenses into the Fog...
...The Fire is eternally cold...
The Elements unite the second time
In the Moonlit Night of Apocalyptic holocaust
Track Name: Dwellers of the Cursed Forest
Buried by Ages
They eternally wander about Their Forest
Cursed forever
To haunt on the Winds
In Abyss of Time
Without the place to rest...
Ravens and Wolves
Are Their minions
In Their souls
They bear inside
A Wolf-Headed God
Unseen Warriors
Of the Night
They bark at the Moon with the Wolves
They travel through the Sky
Under the Stars
Guided by Flitter Mice
They Hate the Life
They Scorn the Light
Mortals suffer from Their Wrath
Endless Damnation
Has fallen upon these Dwellers of Night
They are doomed
To Undead Existence
Fury of the Storms
Pain of Loneliness
Burn inside Their souls
Crawl through Their minds
Evil in Their hearts
Darkness in Their eyes
Full Moon shows Their Path
Among the frozen trees
From the fouled ground
They howl to the Sky in Hunger
Which devours Their Minds and souls
They are the Spectral Wolves
Of the Kingdom of Frozen Wastes
And the Snow turns red
When They hunt the sheepmen
They denied the laws of Light
They are the Doom of mortal ones
Eternity is Their Temple
They were born by the First Chaos
They are Dwellers of the Cursed Forest
We are Them...
Buried by Ages,
We forever shall wander about Our Forest
We are Cursed
To haunt on the Storms
In the Chasm of Time
We have no place to rest
Ravens and Wolves,
They are Our servants
Dance through Our Souls
We bear inside
Wolf-Headed God...
Track Name: Journey to the Throne of Darkside
In Silence I stand on the frozen ground
Holding the Blacksword of Ice
Raising the Wand through the Rage of Wind
My soul travels the worlds
Beyond Reality
I hear the Song of Funeral Storms
I enter the Gates of Shadowlands
Into the Realm of Winterfog
Back to Darkside
Where my soul was born
Thus my Journey begins
I fly on the Winds of Time
The Red Flame shines in my eyes
And melds with the Light of the Stars
With the pale Fire of Pentagram
With the Darkness of Night
With the Blaze in the Northern Sky
With the Coldness of Iced Woods
With the Ghostly Candles of the Dead
With the Beams of Northern Moon
I hail the Northern Pride
The Pride of Ancient Ones
The Pride of those who were
The Wolves, the Children of Night
I summon my Brothers in the Northern Land
We are the Lords of Stone and Wind
We'll reclaim our Thrones of Ice
We shall ride with the Pagan Hordes
Into the glorious Battles
Into the Rage of the War
My Journey ended
At the Throne of Shadowlands
The Shadows heard my Cry
And met me at the Gates
With the darkest Flame inside
I ride back to Kill and Rule
With the Power of my Darkest Pride
With the Might of my Ancient Evil
I became Undead this Night
Baptized in the sea of christian blood
"I cry with funeral choir
The Hymn of Enormous Frost
In the Ancient Northern Land
In my elder Nordic Heart"
Track Name: Shadowlands
One of the thousands of spectral worlds
Lightless Abyss, Empire of Shadows
Where the Spirits eternally dance
The place where my ancient Castle was founded
Proud and dark, macabre and silent
Domain of Eternal Night and Winter
No kind thing
Could live here
The sky of Shadowlands is eternally black
The Stars and the Moon... but there is no Sun
Warmth and Life have never visited
This Realm of Chaos, Darkness and Evil
Spirits of Time don't enter into
The Gates of my Unholy Empire
The Time here is frozen, all the things
Are Lifeless, Undead, Immortal
Behold the rising of silver Moon
From the raging clouds, from the poisonous Fog
Its light awakes all those who died
All those who exits in my Domain
My Castle proudly stands on the Mountain
Which sides always are hidden by the Mist
My soul rests there
On the blackshining Throne
Enjoying the suffer of dead sheepmen
Pale rays of spectral Fullmoon
Lighten the Frozen Wastes of Shadowlands
Dark Forests are covered with Snow and Ice
Cold Proud Mountains in the distance...
Ancient Castle of my Shadowed soul
Sinuous way on the iced hillside
The trail of Lonely Spectral Wolf
The pits
Where souls of mortals burn in Coldflame...
My Shadowrealm...
Track Name: Sun is setting in the North / Kill you
Hungry Cold burns my face
Distant Sun blinds my eyes
Power from across the Cold Dark Horizon
This Black Sun begets my Hate
Black Melancholia streams in my veins
Dazzle Light darkens my mind
Iced Air in my lungs
What can I do here? I can only Kill
Time for the Evil and Evil is good
Glitter of my Weapon
War from my Inmostself
My soul is nothing, it cannot exist
I'm walking on the scorched earth
Hateful dark Sky over my Land
Waste people are the slaves of mud
Sun is setting in the North
...Kill you
Track Name: Draugwath

[The name "Draugwath" (rather "Draug Gwath")
means"Spirit of Wolf" in the J. R. R. Tolkien's
imagined language]
Track Name: Riders of the Wind
Earth is descending into the last eve
Night approaches as the Sun fades away
Winds cry mournfully in the Forests of North
The blind eye of Full Moon
Rise upon the Storms
The sky turns black on the East
And on the West it becomes bloodred
This time thou can see the Riders of the Wind
Once I was one of them but now I am dead
Ages ago I also rode on the Wind
Upon the deadly Blackfog
On the Storming Clouds
I beheld the mortals hided in their homes
I laughed and they was thinking it was Thunder
I raised the Sword to the gleam of the risen Moon
And touched with my Spear
The Corpse of Fading Sun
My eyes shined coldly,
The mortals were thinking those were Stars
Now only my memories are left
Inside the Stone Coffin
Once I was the being
Mortals call "God"
Now I am a victim in Hell of my Memories
I lie entombed under obsidian lid
The mile-height mountain is my Tombstone
But yet I hear the Evening Call
Of those who bring the Night
Coffin holds me
Mountain covers me
My torture is Endless
I scream from my Abyss
And the world shall die
When I'll break my chains...
