Visigoth – The Revenant King Lyrics (2015)

1. The Revenant King

Out across the foothills they rode
Banners as black as their souls
As a winter sky loomed above
Pale as the wind-driven snow
I have seen this day in my dreams
The hour of my doom drawing nigh

Black blades of treachery draw forth my aging blood
And I fall, dying on the cold stones of my throne

Retake the usurper’s throne
The blades of our fallen burst forth with the revenant’s breath
Destined to fight, even in death
These are the bones that they thought they had shattered
But we’ll never rest

Immortal blood courses through my veins
I won’t be denied; your battle’s lost in vain
I have returned to reclaim my rightful throne
From realms beyond the waking world
We’ll rend your flesh from bone

There the young man sits on my throne
Surrounded by ill-gotten gains
Ebon hair and eyes black like coal
Murder and thievery his way
I see the horror gripping his mind
As we descend on his ranks

A thousand men they thought they had killed ride out from the woods
And our steel thirsts for betrayers’ flesh and blood

Retake the usurper’s throne
The blades of our fallen burst forth with the revenant’s breath
Destined to fight, even in death
These are the bones that they thought they had shattered
But we’ll never rest

Immortal blood courses through my veins
I won’t be denied; your battle’s lost in vain
I have returned to reclaim my rightful throne
From realms beyond the waking world
We’ll rend your flesh from bone

[Solo: Leeland]

We traveled realms beyond the crystal moon
And shadowed keeps
Where mighty serpents stalked ensorcelled seas
And ice-crowned peaks
So here we are to bring your end my friend
And none shall week
Betrayal’s debt paid in your foul blood
The price is steep

We are revenant
We have returned
So bow your heads
We are your doom

The hoarfrost breaks as steel-shod hooves
Make known their presence to the night
And fires rise against the starwheel, casting smoke into the sky
My bloodline was and always will be rightful heirs to this old throne
Your blood will slake the soil’s thirst for sacrifice and blooded stone

Immortal blood courses through my veins
I won’t be denied; your battle’s lost in vain
I have returned to reclaim my rightful throne
From realms beyond the waking world
We’ll rend your flesh from bone

2. Dungeon Master

Far beyond the mountains and tresses of the sea
Dark horizons black will rumble with the voice of prophecy
We are standing steadfast against a gathering dark
As our battle-iron flashes countless foul beasts will fall

Take a chance, roll the dice
Is this hell or paradise?
In this land of high adventure carve your fate
Forgotten realms, magick spells
Hollowed halls beneath the fells
He’s the master of the evil in deep

He’s the dungeon master

Master of evil, lord of the dark
In catacombs and blackened tomes is where is foul will is wrought
But on the field of battle, see our legions ride
Thunderous hooves like raging storms will sound across the azure sky

Take a chance, roll the dice
Is this hell or paradise?
In this land of high adventure carve your fate
Forgotten realms, magick spells
Hollowed halls beneath the fells
He’s the master of the evil in deep

He’s the dungeon master

We’ve traveled long, we’ve traveled far
With shining steel and morningstar
We call upon the gods of old
In ancient texts it was foretold

We are the legions who will ride into the dawn
The war will take its toll but we will carry on
So raise your banners to the sky and let us hear your battlecries
Now let the horns resound and call for victory
The hordes advance but we are fierce and we are free
So loose your arrows to the sky and raise your magick steel on high

[Solo: Jamison, Leeland]

We are the pathfinders, we are the travelers
We are the voices of steel in the night
We are the warriors, we are the sorcerers
And our magicks will light up the sky

Take a chance, roll the dice
Is this hell or paradise?
In this land of high adventure carve your fate
Forgotten realms, magick spells
Hollowed halls beneath the fells
He’s the master of the evil in deep

He’s the dungeon master

3. Mammoth Rider

Deep in the tundra under hyperborean skies
The vile necromancer reaps from genocide
One warrior lives, his mind is burning as they fall
He will not rest until he has avenged them all

Hail! From the wastes of they North he rides
Hail! Crushing the earth with every stride

Tale of blood and might
Mammoth rider through the night
Ancient warrior
The spear of destiny
Eyes full of hate
Gored upon the tusks of fate
Fight against the gods
The mammoth rider comes

Armed with a spear whose blade was forged from meteors
Tempered in the blood of a thousand conquerors
Heart filled with hatred for the murder of his tribe
Against the sorcerer the mammoth warrior rides

Hail! From the wastes of they North he rides
Hail! Pounds at the earth like a battle-drum

Tale of blood and might
Mammoth rider through the night
Ancient warrior
The spear of destiny
Eyes full of hate
Gored upon the tusks of fate
Fight against the gods
The mammoth rider comes

[Thus spake the necromancer:]
“Your feeble flesh bends to my will!
I’ve seen your future in my crystal ball
Your beast of war won’t save your skin
In shrouded magicks I’ve forseen your fall
Your end is nigh!”

[Solo: Leeland]

He rides out from the mountains with vengeance in his eyes
Across the rivers and valleys to where the ocean meets the skies
Against th sorcerer’s army he raises his spear and shield
And calls upon his people’s gods to bring him victory on the battlefield

And he rides to meet his fate

Evil magicks rend the sky
Bow to the wizard
Ancient, twisted necromancy
Spells of death

Tale of blood and might
Mammoth rider through the night
Ancient warrior
The spear of destiny
Eyes full of hate
Gored upon the tusks of fate
Fight against the gods
The mammoth rider comes

4. Blood Sacrifice

[Solo: Jamison]

The late October moon rises through the fog
Alabaster witness to the rite
Hooded figures bowed deep within the trees
Thirteen gathered for the sacrifice

Deep in the forest thirteen hooded figures stand
The hour of the ritual is now hand
They’ve gathered for the sacrifice
A gnarled hand extends above the altar stone
An incantation rises from its hoary throat
A spell invoked to claim the night

Incantation, evil magick rise

Blood sacrifice, an ancient rite
Blood sacrifice upon the altar stone
Blood sacrifice, an ancient rite
Blood sacrifice unto the pentagram

The pale moon bathes the virgin’s skin in pallid light
Entranced by verses tolled from forms deep in the night
Her final breath is drawn in blood
As crimson creeps across the cracked and ancient stone
Five-pointed star ignites and belches forth black smoke
Demonic forces summoned forth

Incantation, evil magick rise

Blood sacrifice, an ancient rite
Blood sacrifice upon the altar stone
Blood sacrifice, an ancient rite
Blood sacrifice unto the pentagram

With human offal offering, we gaze into the great abyss
We summon thee, oh antichrist
This virgin’s blood so red and pure will bind your will unto our own
Bow before the horned god

[Solo: Leeland, Jamison, Leeland, Jamison]

Rise on wings as black as night
Summoned by the sacrifice
Chaos reigns and death is come
Twisted horns eclipse the sun

The late October sky streaked with blood and fire
Yawning gateway to the underworld
From the altar the young girl rises with cold black haunted eyes
Chosen queen of a brimstone kingdom come
The reborn empress of hell

[Solo: Leeland]

Incantation, evil magick rise

Blood sacrifice, an ancient rite
Blood sacrifice upon the altar stone
Blood sacrifice, an ancient rite
Blood sacrifice unto the pentagram

5. Iron Brotherhood

Leather black in the night
Hammers, chains, and spikes
No fear or weakness
This is the path we chose
Always true to the code
Stand beside each other

Raise your fist beside your brothers
Stand eternally proud
We are the true and the brave
Forever one with the sound
We are the Iron Brotherhood

Falsehood crushed by our will
We cannot be killed
Strength and honor immortal
Anthems rise to the sky
Brothers-in-arms unite
Our voices unified

Raise your fist beside your brothers
Stand eternally proud
We are the true and the brave
Forever one with the sound
We are the Iron Brotherhood

[Solo: Leeland]

We walk these streets with heads held high
Eternally we march with armored hearts full of pride
We’re standing strong against the world
Fight until we die

Raise your fist beside your brothers
Stand eternally proud
We are the true and the brave
Forever one with the sound
We are the Iron Brotherhood

6. Necropolis (Manilla Road cover)

Through the jungle by the river Styx
I’ve journeyed long and far this day
Lurking shadows in the parapets
Will never make me turn away
Darkened city veiled in crimson mist
Entombed in time without decay
Never thought it would be like this
It feels like I’m living inside a dream
But my mind tells me I’m

Lost in Necropolis, lost in Necropolis
Lost in Necropolis, lost in Necropolis

Now I know what it’s like to be
Inside the city of the dead
All I think of is breaking free
From all the spells chained to my head
Sword and axe are my destiny
I watch the stars turning blood red
There is light yes I’ve got to believe
For this feels like living inside a dream
I know now that I am

Lost in Necropolis, lost in Necropolis
Lost in Necropolis, lost in Necropolis

I have seen your cities burning
I have felt your daughters yearning
For the peace before the tides of war
I have witnessed funeral pyres
Burning bright with man’s desire
I will fight the demon horde forever more

The world is full of mysteries
That men have never seen before
Magik lives in all dynasties
The light of love shines ever more
In the crypts of Atlantean Kings
I found what I was looking for
Magik Trident of Volusia’s Sea
I know it’s like living inside a dream
But don’t you ever get

Lost in Necropolis, lost in Necropolis
Lost in Necropolis, lost in Necropolis

7. Vengeance

This woodland village is the only home I’ve ever known
Through burning tears I watch it all consumed by flames
From the south they came with iron and fire
I take my father’s blade and shield into my vengeful hands
I won’t lay down my sword until they’ve all been slain
From the north I will come with cold, hateful judgment

This tale of vengeance will be told
As written in the blood of my foes
This tale of vengeance will unfold
Before the night is done they will fall

The blood upon my hands avenges all that I have lost
But sill the battle-rage is coursing through my veins
From the south they came with iron and fire
I stand victorious above the final treacherous dog
The world becomes an empty shell now as he dies
From the north I will come with cold, hateful judgment

This tale of vengeance will be told
As written in the blood of my foes
This tale of vengeance will unfold
Before the night is done they will fall

I’ve been wandering for so long
Only starlight guides my way
The steel at my side has become so heavy
But still I carry on

I’ve been wandering for so long
Only starlight guides my way
The steel at my side has become so heavy
But still I carry on

[Solo: Leeland]

Leaves have fallen, winter comes
The gods have left me on my own
And when the flames have turned to ashes
Still I will carry on, I will carry on

This tale of vengeance will be told
As written in the blood of my foes
This tale of vengeance will unfold
Before the night is done they will fall

Vengeance is mine

8. Creature of Desire

[Solo: Leeland]

For a long time I have roamed
These barren, heartless streets alone
Where the burning stars seemed far away

But in the dark of night I’ve seen
The moon arising in my dreams
She is here and we’ll set the world ablaze

Fire and steel
Smoke and burning wheels
She’s my goddess of the nigh

Leather and spikes
I wanna treat her right
This warrior queen here at my side

Two wheels are burning down the road and she’s on fire
And we are riding like the wind
I’m free at last and she’s a creature of desire
Oh we will never kneel again

[Solo: Leeland]

We are the rulers of the street
No submission, no retreat
We are starfire in the blazing sky

On a metal beast we ride
As we tear on through the night
We have tasted freedom and we won’t die

Fire and steel
Smoke and burning wheels
She’s my goddess of the nigh

Leather and spikes
I wanna treat her right
This warrior queen here at my side

Two wheels are burning down the road and she’s on fire
And we are riding like the wind
I’m free at last and she’s a creature of desire
Oh we will never kneel again

[Solo: Leeland]

Two wheels are burning down the road and she’s on fire
And we are riding like the wind
I’m free at last and she’s a creature of desire
Oh we will never kneel again

9. From the Arcane Mists of Prophecy

Seven suns light the sky
Our time has come, at last we ride

In days when arcane magicks ripped apart the ancient sky
And mighty tyrants ruled with sorcery and steel
Where vast barbaric hordes rode out on cursed battlefields
And spilled each others’ blood with chaos in their hearts

Seven suns shall rise in an endless desert sky

Across these ancient paths we ride
We feel a sorrow deep inside
Reclaim the fire in our minds
And raise our fists against the sky

The hourglass proclaims the death of ages come to pass
Forgotten sagas fade to grey mythology
Now steel and honor and usurped by cold complacency
And battles born within the vile womb of avarice

Seven suns shall rise in an endless desert sky

So from the depths of ancient ages, beneath the sun-scorched sand
An evil with no name awaits to claim the land again
And so we wait with bated breath for the rising of the seventh sun
To break the chains of our entombment
The dawn of battle comes

Beyond these walls of sand and time, bells of destiny shall chime
Out of the arcane mists of prophecy the guardians will rise
From an age of sword and shield and distant war-torn battlefield
We have returned to serve this dying realm with sorcery and steel

[Solo: Leeland]

Across these ancient paths we ride
We feel a sorrow deep inside
Reclaim the fire in our minds
And raise our fists against the sky

All that once was, all you believed was owed to you
Has been shattered and destroyed and now at last you understand
Your redemption has come at a cost and we won’t weep for what you’ve lost
So as our words fade into the star-filled sky
You must repent, you must reclaim
