BLACK HORIZONS
Music: Nödtveidt/Zweetsloot
Lyrics: Nödtveidt

From my tower I behold the landscape below
I see the river of blood in fury flow
I stare into the night, yet my vision's clear
From the distant villages every word i hear

I am the almighty, the one with wisdom wide
I am the great shadow and from daylight in my tower I hide
I have seen the abyss and all that lies within
I am the great shadow and I was born in sin

Thy shadow swept by like an angel fading to grey
Thy eyes were like weakening candles leaving the flames to die
Thy pale cold face, once so full of life
Now it's torn as of thorns of ice
Thy towers fell to the ground

I am the almighty, the one with wisdom wide
I am the great shadow and from daylight in my tower I hide
I have seen the abyss and all that lies within
I am the great shadow and I was born in sin

Shadows over a dark lost kingdom
The dark clouds are neverending

Yes, this is the land, the land of the black horizon
Where the shores are covered with the bodies of thy followers
Triumphal vengeance, dethroning the shape of thou
Fade I say, wither away

I am the almighty, the one with wisdom wide
I am the great shadow, no daylight over my kingdom ride
At the black horizons, my eyes and soul's the wind
I am the great shadow and I was born in sin

I am the almighty, the one with wisdom wide
I am the great shadow, no daylight over my kingdom ride
At the black horizons, my eyes and soul's the wind
I am the great shadow
Behold my land of sin!


THE SOMBERLAIN
Music: Nödtveidt
Lyrics: Nödtveidt

I fell deeper and deeper as light now was gone
I could feel the dark embrace my soul
Agony was no more, and so was pain
At this point of solitude I knew I was there...
There where I belong

Thus far a long journey through my soul's infinity
It has been a journey far beyond mortality
I have found what I wanted, tranquillity
I'll thrive on evil, eternally

I flew over crystal ground
My existence, numb
Over orchards of grievance
sorrow and tears
This beautiful silence
calls me now

Black fog devours me but I can see it all
The monument of my past
The land of the seven horizons' before my eyes
I reach the land of spiritual rest

It's the dawn of descending
- I am the Somberlain
Down to evil divine domain

Lord of infernal, gather my strength
Carry me through the gates

It's the dawn of descending
- I am the Somberlain
Down to evil divine domain

For I'm eternal night
- I'm the Somberlain
Precede my evil divine domain


CRIMSON TOWERS
Music: Zwetsloot


A LAND FORLORN
Music: Nödtveidt/Palmdahl
Lyrics: Nödtveidt

The mountains below we reached by our will
The flames of our swords are burning still

Tempted by the night to spread hate and fear
We're the revenge the blackest, Their soul is our prey

Storms of evil, thunder and might
Their moon's in our eyes, a guiding sight

We're the march of profanity
The darkest breed, again we'll rise
forth against the flocks of the weak
We'll approach a land forlorn

Our hordes arrived / O hordes of white
Watch us take your lives
As false you'll fall, falseness disappear

(The Land) where eyes are blind we have found
Battle sign under the shape of mine
Darkest souls now set free
We rose again, damnation's reign

Watch me absorb your thoughts
See me ruin your halls of light
Weltering in your sadness for infinity

We're the march of profanity
Your tragedy, flames will rise
forth against the flocks of the weak
No return, A land forlorn


HEAVEN'S DAMNATION
Music: Nödtveidt/Zwetsloot
Lyrics: Nödtveidt

Striking over oceans of blood
Over kingdoms in fears
Where the night bred it's cold
Dark the winter drew near

Watch the sky, the crimson tears of heaven
The darkened mist of burning hate

Ashes of the past, Years that fell into oblivion
Visions so dim they had, memories of a time
yet to come

Watch the sky, the crimson tears of heaven
As damnation reaches the hidden lands

Through forests of profanity
The sound of cries
Brought forth by the night sky

Invoked by their own tongues
Yes they're truly awake now
The souls that were sleeping under the tree of death

And I laugh as I burn down the pearly gates of light
And forever I'll be within the arms of abomination

Embracement of eternal dark
With the ancient souls at the sides
Wastelands bathed in evil...
are one with the blackened sky

Watch the sky, the crimson tears of heaven
fade to black and welcome the night of all nights


FROZEN
Music: Nödtveidt
Lyrics: Nödtveidt

Far beyond all light
Within the black and the coldest breeze
Caressed by the dark, I had my sleep

Awakened by the moon
Nocturnal life, my powers to be
Keeping myself alive by sucking you mortals' blood

Frozen winds of immortality
as I drown in obscurity

Still feeling the taste of blood
It makes me so strong
I spread my wings
Into soul winter I fly

Tears in my eyes turn into fire
as where I belong
The cold within, it chills my skin,
my heart and soul
In ecstacy I shred myself
to release what's held within
In solitude I'm having my pride
I, Transylvanian son

Frozen winds of immortality
as I drown in obscurity

I fall deep into what's for me unseen
Eternal flames lick my face
In purgatory I'm all within
But I'm forever bound to my frozen soul


INTO INFINITE OBSCURITY
Music: Zwetsloot


IN THE COLD WINDS OF NOWHERE
Music: Nödtveidt/Zwetsloot
Lyrics: Nödtveidt

Search for my subconscious
Lead me into myself
A need to discover the dark
A will to enter these gates
Oh, this temptation
to end this empty life
In my dreams I saw my real side

A journey through forever
my vision's, O so bright
Watching eternity open
as I turn out life's light
Oh, this temptation
to leave this earthly shell
Deep inside, the toll of death's bell

In the cold winds of nowhere

With a sigh I pass away
Falling, into harmonic sleep
Then I'll find my prophecies wasn't lies
Falling, into the abyss I come

I... I am dying
Death does heal me

In the cold winds of nowhere


THE GRIEF PROPHECY / SHADOWS OVER A LOST KINGDOM
Music: Nödtveidt/Ohman
Lyrics: Nödtveidt

I - have travelled through eternity
I will - reign once again

You will never rule again!

Hunger - A thirst for your pain
I will - see your kingdom burnt by sins

Join my crusade of a time left to come
To spill the blood
You're the ones who never saw the sun

Now I hear it, the calling
I hear the calling of the mist
The ancients and their slumber
Eenai, will rise again from the sea
Prophecy
From the sea


MISTRESS OF THE BLEEDING SORROW
Music: Nödtveidt/Zwetsloot
Lyrics: Nödtveidt

So dark, I'm facing my destiny
As far as pleasures led my disciple was me
For ages I have been searching for my bride
Since she passed away grief became my guide

As darkness falls above
- It will be there for centuries
My mistress of sorrow she will hear my call

I sort of entered the other side
when those words were called up to the sky

As darkness falls above
- It will be there for centuries
Mistress of sorrow, please hear my call

As darkness falls above
- It will be there for centuries
No mistress of sorrow ever heard my call

[dedicated to life]


FEATHERS FELL
Music: Zwetsloot


SON OF THE MOURNING
Music: Nödtveidt / Ohman
Lyrics: Nödtveidt

Evil son
Spread your wings of deepest black
Spit on "god"
May his lies be forgotten

The son of the mourning
A gift to our earth
Christ stands tall no more
So bestow your force upon us

Gaze into the well of those restless souls
Eternally, lost in fear of you
godforsaken son

You have tasted suffering
That dove of life has died
Paralyzed and terrorized
By the fear you feel inside
Caught within the floods of blood
Evil, departed sea
Immortal but now it's like to forever bleed

We saw the truth
And it's the draining of the blood
of your false redeemer
The mourning son has now control
So what if it's evil


THE CALL OF THE MIST
Music: Nödtveidt
Lyrics: Nödtveidt

The darkened sky above possesses a sense
of far beyond
Dismal visions from a distant past summons
a fate unknown

Ancient visions sweep fast by your blinded eyes
A raven flies over the cenotaph
An ancient force to rise

Rise!

Caressing the ground of the evil one
Infinite songs heard clear and strong
This once so placid place is now
where the dead speak and walk
The call of the mist - suffocation of all life
Conjuring of souls,
then laid to desolation

Devour my soul in eternal blasphemy
I'm the mourner of the ones who died for you
Swallowed by the dark embracement
Open wide the somber gates!

My god has horns
