wielki-tana Slam! That's my favourite album since I've heard it in 2016... I feel like in Conan the Barbarian realms... love that music. Favorite track: BURNING VILLAGE.

repconn This album is just old school cool. It has a certain retro feel to it, without it seeming gimmicky. It was really hard to pick a favorite song, since they all have a very different mood and they all are pretty good. I finally settled for "Isle of Bones", because it has a great vibe and some of the best lyrics. Pretty sad that the lyrics are not available on bandcamp, though. Favorite track: ISLE OF BONES.
Old Man Doom

Old Man Doom It was that time of the year where I have to own up to my age and go see the Ass Doctor for my yearly colonoscopy. All the crap I did to this body through life even Old Man Doom has to drop his drawers and let the Doc have a look. Well the Doc mentions that he remembered I like Black Sabbath. He tells me he has a something to listen to and he puts on this album on his computer and man I dug it. He left a note saying "Mountain WItch". What a Doc. Favorite track: THE COLD HANDS OF FATE.

Track Name: THE DEAD WON'T SLEEP
THE DEAD WON’T SLEEP
-------------------

something in the air a fever
a morbid scent is wafting over
through the cracks it’s sneaking in
to sweeten our self-righteous dreams

tonight the dead won’t sleep

from the outbacks of our minds
they come creeping through the night
those who once so hastly buried
so that we don’t need to worry

tonight the dead won’t sleep

oh yeah

raven-black the godless sky
just the fullmoons evil eye
witness of the foulest deeds
shining on what treason breeds

tonight the dead won’t sleep

look out the window if you dare
soon they will be everywhere
let the dead sleep say their killers
let the dead sleep pray their killers

tonight the dead won’t sleep

oh yeah
Track Name: STONE AGE FUNERAL
STONE AGE FUNERAL
-----------------

10000 years ago
the world’s a very different place

no one really knows
hard to put yourself into

what you’re gonna eat
be careful that it don’t eat you

you gotta have the fire
you need a roof over your head

you gotta find your people
they’ll bury you when you are dead

with sticks and stones and skin and bones, ok
will provide for tommorow and try not to die today

im a stone age man
she’s a space age woman
cos i'm a stone age man
and she's a space age woman

whatcha talkin bout
yuppie with the three-day-beard
carbos and lactose?
all the things i’ve never heard
once i’m in the hole
no saber tooth will scrape my ass
better keep your mouth shut
at the stone age funeral

you sit and stare and hear the mammoth's cry
you realize there’s stupid ways to die
Track Name: THE COLD HANDS OF FATE
THE COLD HANDS OF FATE
------------------

hold your breath, hold your horses
his greatness's arrival is near
our king, our saviour
speaker of truth, redeemer of trust
when he speaks there is silence
when he calls people chorus and cheer
courage and dedication
bearer of light and esperance appears

tidal waves of excitement
he enthralls them all
so close to the peak of his game
in the blink of an eye he will fall

oh the swoon, oh the letdown
let me spare you the horror, the grief
not a king, not a saviour
but a traitor and deciever
a liar a thief
finally mine is vengeance
dear people come forward and see
don't you lot recognise him
rustler of chicken now lies at my feet

pushing rocks up the mountains
watching them roll down again
forever in debt to the light
eager to see through the night that will never end
Track Name: AT THE MOUNTAINS OF MADNESS
MOUNTAINS OF MADNESS
-----------------------

southern sun of midnight pours it’s
reddish rays upon white snow
blueish ice and water lanes
black bits of exposed granite slope
great barren peaks of mystery
cryptic world of frozen death

puffs of smoke from erebus
the lavas that restlessly roll
their sulphurous currents down yaanek
in the ultimate climes of the pole -
outpost of the great unknown
cryptic land of frozen death

headlong through the biting cold
to fathom secrets aeons old
a burning curiosity
dares glaciated mystery

the doubts and horrors around us
we shall never reveal
transcent the loss of reason
with sheer scientific zeal
deep in the mountains of madness
the outer reaches of mind
is where i chose to be
is where i can see me

to wonder what is at the core
our little flames are burning for

the mountains stand as kingdoms fall
there are no answers none at all

would to the heavens we'd run back
before we'd seen what we did see
before our minds were burned
when we could easily breathe
beyond in the mountains of madness
theres something else, you see
a cauldron so vast
an abyss so deep

pylons of a frightful gateway into forbidden spheres of dream
complex gulfs of remote time, space, and ultra-dimensionality
we’re rolling in the wind across the endless leagues of frozen plateau
Track Name: HAUNTED BY WAR
HAUNTED BY WAR
------------------
who’s tearing cross the barren landscape
with no ones banner in the wind
heavy hooves that breach the dirt
malicious breed, the giant steed
the horseman, in a morbid frenzy
aroused by screams and scent of blood
ironclad with numb indifference
he wields the sword called pondering silence

swords and axes wedged together
its raining arrows, hailing spears
they’re screaming gore, they’re crying havoc
shieldwalls break and horses fall
beneath blind men the hillside’s blushing
one is vengeful the other’s proud
they won’t retreat, they won’t give way
in the thick of this battle the slayen won’t fall


forsaken horseman, he arrives
oh battlefield, my crimson lady
let me hold you one more time


every thrust the air is bleeding
every blow a dozen dead
every stroke has heart and meaning
silence falls upon friend and foe
for each one death brings understanding
the last beer was the last indeed!
the last cut done, my lady's gone
at waterloo or azingcourt we’ll meet again

haunted by war
peace shall never come
Track Name: BURNING VILLAGE
BURNING VILLAGE
-------------------------------------

the troops were tired, it began to snow
beyond sundown their horses became slow
what, from the distance, appeared to be a campfire
was a ransacked village slowly burning down

from out of nowhere
in the middle of the night
butchered, not a single soul left alive

see a man come of his high horse, see him shake
the generals slowest steepest descent towards hell
glowing sacrifices on the altars of hate
the broken wombs the severed heads of man and mice

he recognizes his place of birth
what we do it is not right!

as they were shouting: don't go inside
the flying saucer spreads its light

wolfs spring from the undergrowth
snakes crawl from the pitchers
of bitten throats and poisoned wells
of warlords and their witchers

a trick of cards
a bruised knee
amidst the graves
below the olive tree
the world at war
the mind at peace
a small device
with games and imagery
i'm not going to tell
cause they will take me elsewhere
Track Name: FORBIDDEN FOREST
FORBIDDEN FORREST
----------------

forbidden forest
no one shall enter
anyone who dares
will die! indeed

with my bow and arrow
i will hunt you down
the spirits of nature
they demand your death

on sacred ground you trample
cannot tell birch from spruce
no clue about moss, fern or funghi
it’s all the same to you

you call yourself a woodsman
i call you untrue
some stuff with the rodents
is all you want to do


guardian of the sacred tree
servant for eternity
never will be fooled by thee
go back to your hideous parking place
Track Name: ISLE OF BONES
ISLE OF BONES
---------------------------------------------


take my hand and come with me
to a land across the sea
where blackened rocks break sanguine waves
where the shores have claws and teeth
where crackling steps will tread the land
covered in bones like snow
were twisted bowels hang like leaves
from stone cold dead old trees

there's no one here except for us
the tomb you allways craved
were even gods will take there lives
divinity depraved
how often did i strangle you
and then caress your head
how often did you stab my back
and ressurect me from the dead

all your tears can not revive
the withered rose that's now your live
since the day you broke my heart
fortresses kept falling apart

seaguls falling from the sky
stranded whales long past their time
when you squeeze my bony hand
i will tell you it's the end

theres wooden planks upon these bones
the stairs lead up to a hill
of what was once a prosperous place
only crumbled ruins tell
now tell me what did you expect
of all the love and hate
we’re going were this sickness goes
don't answer, it's too late
