Track Name: And So It Ends
"... and so it ends."
Track Name: Purgatory
Black
I open my eyes
And soon realise
I sense that I am falling down
Darkness I see
What has happened to me?
Memories of my past life gone

And I fall into black
No turning back
As I push into the unknown fire
In the distance I see
Ground is rushing at me
Preparing for the impact

All I feel is sadness and pain
All I hear are screams in the flames
Who am I? Can’t remember my name
Will I ever see the sunshine again?

Cold
I’m chilled to the bone
And I feel so alone
The fires burn as cold as ice
Flows black through my veins
As I walk through the flames
This road is never ending, long

And the journey goes on
It’s feeling so wrong
Contradicting lack of sense
A world upside down
And a terrible sound
A thousand tortured souls
Are screaming

All I feel is sadness and pain
All I hear are screams in the flames
Who am I? Can’t remember my name
Will I ever see the sunshine again?

Lost
In a land so confused
Every path that I choose
Returns me to the starting point
In a world full of fears
Feel I’m walking for years
Yet I know it’s but a moment passed

No conception of time
Without reason or rhyme
Trapped here for eternity
Between heaven and hell
Where the fallen ones dwell
And await their fate
And final judgement

All I feel is sadness and pain
All I hear are screams in the flames
Who am I? Can’t remember my name
Will I ever see the sunshine on my face again?
Track Name: Hell's Gate
"Where Am I?
What is this place?

I don't know why I'm here
Or what I've done
I don't even know my name

All I remember is the darkness
and the sound of the blade..."
Track Name: A Figure In Black
I wandered far and wide
Across this barren land
No terminus in sight
When will this journey end?

From the dark
A fearful sound
I turn around and stare
Black figure – arise
With flaming eyes
It said: “Decide”

“Join us
Or rot here for eternity
Now choose your fate”

I turn and break to run
But every path looks the same
A hot breath on my back
Voices call my name

I stumble and fall
What does it want from me?
Beg for mercy, there is none
Just a question
That said: “Decide”

“Join us
Or rot here for eternity
Now choose your fate”

Cold fingers drag me down
Into the black abyss
Who am I? What have I done
To meet a fate like this?

Cry out towards the sky
Who will save me now?
Black figure, last sight
With a smile
It said: “Decide”

“Join us
Or rot here for eternity
Now choose your fate”
Track Name: Of Wings And White
Cries, like half-told whispers, take flight
Plead for mercy in the dread and dark of night
Cast down, no reasons given for my plight
“Please God, help me” I scream toward the morbid sky

Through the black – a blinding light
Thunder crack, my world goes white
Where am I? A golden hall
Of wings and white, my saviour calls my name

Sighs, like fond remembered sunshine, so warm
Tears, unbridled joy and happiness adorn
Fall down to my knees, “you saved me from this hell”
“Hark, child” the figure said. “Listen now and listen well”

“New life begins and old life ends
Repent your sins and make amends
Be one of us and pledge your soul
Of wings and white forever more”

“One hundred thousand angels
Shall sing the songs and sound the herald call
The gates of paradise shall open
Eternal servitude is your reward”

Torn by indecision for my fate
Saved from one hell yet I pause before the gates
A master, dark or light, is still lord to be served
In blinking eye, I wake to find I’m falling back to blackened earth

As I plunge toward the ground
From above a fearful sound
“Hark, my child – you must repent
Your only hope is heaven sent”

“One hundred thousand angels
Shall sing the songs and sound the herald call
But ignore this final warning
Join us or we’ll watch you as you fall
And you’ll be damned!”
Track Name: Revelation, Arise
“Arise my child”

Allow me to show you your life as a mortal man
Your brutal, sadistic trail across the land

And holding no value for your victim’s life
And dancing only to the sweet song
Of the butcher’s knife

Remember, you will see
The grim reality
Accept what’s meant to be
Let darkness set you free
Arise

Taking pleasure in the suffering
Emotions detaching as you tear the skin

And feeling the power, holding life and death
A morbid pleasure as they bleed
And gasp their final breath

Remember, you will see
The grim reality
Accept what’s meant to be
Let darkness set you free
Arise

Arise now my minion, accept now who you are
The legions of darkness are yours to lead the charge

A leader, our armies are yours to take command
My minion, my servant, arise: become the devil’s hand

Remember, you will see
The grim reality
Accept what’s meant to be
Let darkness set you free
Arise
Track Name: The Blackened Angel
Remember the screams and the pain
Remember the blood fall like rain
The fear as they cried out my name
As I plunged in the knife

The fire of my hatred burns cold
The stench as the bodies grow old
The thrill of the power I hold
As I snuff out their lives

As thunder howls through the sky
My armies of darkness arise
Reflect on my past mortal life
The hatred, the sadistic pride

Feel the power
Coursing deep in my veins
The chosen leader
At last…
I now know who I am

I am the blackened angel!
Track Name: Prophecy Of War
“Cry ‘Havoc!’, and let slip the dogs of war!”

Armies gather round and sing the songs
Of battle, blood and war
Prophecies retold, reciting dark folklore
A hundred million soldiers strong
Intone the arcane battle cries
Setting sights on victory in darkened skies

War devising
Dark uprising

Generals sound the call
The armies ready for a swift attack
The time for doubt or fear has passed
No turning back
Barking orders, general quarters
Soldiers gather up to fight
Into the sky, the horde now taking flight

Rising power
Final hour

Assault the gates – tear them down
Raze the walls – to the ground
Of wings and white now turned to red
Victory when all lay cold and dead

War devising
Dark uprising

Rising power
Final hour

Assault the gates – tear them down
Raze the walls – to the ground
Of wings and white now turned to red
Victory when all lay cold and dead

Now follow the black
Prepare to… ATTACK!
Track Name: The Crimson Dawn
Guard 1: "What was that?"
Guard 2: "What? I don't hear anythi--"

Guard 1: "Listen... do you hear it? THERE! Do you see it? SOUND THE BELLS! SOUND THE BELLS, HURRY!"

Soldiers: "Sound the bells!"
Track Name: Heaven's Fall
Striking from the darkness
Swift and deadly might
Engulf the golden fortress
With death and dark of night

Crushing all before us
The battle now at hand
Savage war of vengeance
Kill all where they stand

Slashing, burning, ripping, hate
The hordes of hell ascend

Merciless and vicious
The battle rages on
The holy war of legend
The prophecy of one

Black meets white
The sky turns red
Stand and fight
‘Til all lay dead

WAR!
WAR!

Chaos all around us
Bodies in the flames
Screams of dying soldiers
Crying out in pain

The lord of darkness rises
Snuffing out the sun
His shadow falls upon us
A reign of fire begun

Begging, pleading, crying, pray
The time of white must end

Praying to their master
Now feeling all alone
The King of Light defeated
And torn down from His throne

“My brothers,
For too long we have been forced to hide,
cast down into the flames.

But the time has come to rise up and
reclaim what it rightly ours.

The dark lord has spoken: he is the chosen one.
Now follow the black, onwards to VICTORY!”

Now the fighting’s over
And silence fills the air
Dismembered limbs and bloodied wings
And corpses everywhere

The golden walls of heaven
Now stained with holy blood
Once mighty Lord impaled on sword
And body left to rot

Fire and flames and profane names
Of wings and white now black

With heaven draped in crimson
And claimed now as our own
The lord of darkness smiles
As He takes His captured throne

Black meets white
The sky turned red
Stand and fight
Now all lay dead

WAR!
WAR!
Track Name: And Then There Was Silence
"We won...?"
Track Name: Dark Victory
Fires blazing, banners fly
Rotting corpses piled around us
Pure blood flows, putrid wine
Feast of flesh, unholy banquet

Vicious battle, countless dead
To the victors: spoils and riches
A thousand lifetimes now history
New chapter opens here tonight

Fires in the night
Songs of victory
Pyres for the white
Now that all lay cold and dead

Cries to the skies
Songs of victory
Dark horde arise
A world now turned to red

Profane dances, ancient songs
Carnal sins around the firelight
Maggots feasting, a stench of death
Golden throne caked with black blood

Now a leader: The Angel Black
Made a saviour, the chosen master
Unholy minions rally ’round
Drink to future conquests won

Feast is over, embers glow
East horizon, red dawn rising
Generals massing, plans unfurled
And so begins The Campaign of Death

Rid the world of the mortal filth
Gather ’round The Blackened Angel
Sound the war horns, the battle cry
Dark horde again defiles the sky
Track Name: Campaign Of Death
“And so began a millenium of slaughter.
The dark armies spread across the lands
in what was to become known as the campaign of death.”

Deadly horde, unholy Lord, we spread across the land
Millenniums of silence passed, the time is now at hand
No obstacle to stop us, we have overthrown the light
Endless pain, let darkness reign, embrace eternal night

Pleading
They are crying
Screaming
They are dying

Bodies burn as steel turns and renders flesh and bone
Dismebering the mortal world, destruction stone by stone
Women plead and children bleed and all are put to death
Prayers in vain, they die in pain and take their final breath

Marching on, the campaign long, the brutal war ascends
Corpses line the battlefields, the carnage never ends
None withstand the dark lord’s hand, the power hungry lust
Seas of red, we crush the dead and grind them into dust
Track Name: Dissent
The Dark Lord: "Go... cleanse the eastern lands."

The Blackened Angel: "Yes, my lord."

The Dark Lord: "You serve your master well."
Track Name: Realisation (The Army Of The Black)
As I walked away
Footsteps echoed in the vast and deserted hall
What a price to pay
Endless power yet these cold walls reflect what’s inside
False control, empty soul, eternal toll
The chosen one, yet still a servant

A choice to serve the light
Turned away for I need no master
Frozen with fear then blinded with might
Pride and ego, my self-made downfall
Made the pact, became The Black, mount the attack
Heaven fell, and I see now so did I…

Eternal torment
Eternal war
Leader yet a servant
A master yet a pawn

Amass the faithful
Call unto my side
The Blackened Angel
Commands you all to rise

Arise…

Come with me and we
Shall depose the king
Join the chosen one
On to victory

Time has come to choose
There’s no turning back
Crush all who oppose
We, the army black
Track Name: Civil War
Blitz attack on the gates of hell
Streams of black engulf the fire
Caught off guard and the sentries fall
Smash the walls as we penetrate

No more shall we be the pawns
Just a piece in the Dark Lord’s puzzle
Rip free from our servitude
Destroying all who dare oppose

Servants now never more
Rise up for civil war
Free will we’re fighting for
Rise up for civil war

Raging through the Dark Lord’s lands
Hail the cry of The Blackened Angel
Ten to one we face our match
But all succumb to the renegades

Savage fighting, brutal death
Scores are lost by opposing armies
Dark blood stains the grounds of hell
Thousands fight and thousands die

Go!

Fight! The bloody death toll never ends
Brothers turn upon their own
And friends now slaughter former friends

Die! A former empire now implodes
War until no one is left to fight
The Blackened Angel stands before the throne

The Angel Black and Dark Lord stand
No man left across the lands
But the chosen one and unholy god
A singing sword and the world has now gone black
Track Name: Alone
I’ve seen empires rise and time and wars turned them to dust
I’ve been a leader of men, I watched them crumble into rust
I’ve known the great despair of losing all that made you whole
And shown the power I hold, as forces battle for my soul

I am the chosen one, the last
Yet I am alone
Won’t kneel for any man or god
Immortal victor, only one
Now I am alone
I am free yet still a slave to time
And I am alone

I was enslaved, too blind to see that all this power was a lie
A pawn in a madman’s game, Heaven and Earth condemned to die
Too late I realised I was nothing but a slave
Rose up, dark deicide, alone but free now of my chains

I was the chosen one, the last
Now I am alone
Boundless power, cursed to be a god
Eternal servitude to time
All on my own
I know what must be done; return
To find my way back home…

"And so it ends."
