In life the battle burns bright with spraying blood and frightened eyes That see the callous hand of death which brings dead bodies worms and flies Then rides that black-cloaked wizard after the frenzied fray He sees the mangled bodies, he finds the murdered brave To resurrect their fighting spirits and enliven undead swordarms Out on the warfield he builds his swarms “May death be ye bride Undead you serve bereft the choice Heard are my words arcane Posthumous shall I misguide Retrieved from your death again to live Brought back from your last breath When worldly fates and what awaits are gauged These spells may stil negate May you embrace my rule “I’m building an army, these the recycled dead The strongest are chosen, to my triumph be led I decide who lives and who shall die Buried or not, a chance you may survive Gnarl and writhe for me, the grandest of the Lichlords Guilder of graves, I am Velsharoon! In evil hearts lies reason, in genius minds lies wicked vice And all may crave that grim obsession, power absolute Cold means to gain… “May death be ye bride Undead you serve bereft the choice Heard are my words arcane Posthumous shall I misguide Retrieved from your death again to live Brought back from your last breath When worldly fates and what awaits are gauged These spells may stil negate May you embrace my rule “I’m building an army, these the recycled dead The strongest are chosen, to my triumph be led I decide who lives and who shall die Buried or not, a chance you may survive Gnarl and writhe for me, the one they call ‘The Vaunted’ Undeath is a maze, I am the skeleton key”

“Exalted Battlemaster, lead them rank and file” Divisions of our stern and taciturn warriors of the past Unrelenting and steadfast Conscripts kept in line all this time, no chance to disobey Where there is a whip there is a way I can hear the clarion call to arms, brutish mobs trained solely to do harm Honor for the first, not a curse, beginning our assault And wounds of valor that result Lowering their spears like the steady rolling gears of a machine And falling axes, guillotines I can hear their gutless craven laughter, seas of fodder cheering for their master The ugly face of war Rank and File Legions growing more and more Rank and File Minions marching Rank and File March with the Overlord Rank and File Notches keeping score by these veterans war-to-war on the campaign And very little space remains Terror they insight parading onward thru the night, torches glowing And still the flames are ever glowing I can hear the clamor of their armor, dreaming of what plunder they may garner Formations in the ice, strategic flanking by surprise, a lethal ruse Outmaneuvering is no use Sheer numbers awfully daunting let alone the ceaseless taunting too A crass and pitiless brood I can hear their shuffling hooves and feet, a march like thunder announcing coming siege March! Sent to the frontline prepared for attack Crossing the threshold there is no turning back Combat pushed forward as night becomes day Carnage completed once none are left to slay Our targets before us, our orders are clear Swift progress is made, victory draws near Tactically brilliant, rapidly gaining ground Shackling prisoners, humiliated clowns Ruining resources, arrogantly proud Nothing but scorched earth left in our wake Dividing munitions, supplies they can’t hide Thrown into chaingangs, our control stretched wide Rewarding our warriors, claiming our warbrides We do as we please and we take what we want Plowing down defense lines in all out attack Frenzied for blood, there is no turning back A starlit slaughter as night becomes day A holocaustal halting once none are left to slay Ruthlessly advance, our orders are clear Few are now left, victory’s swords I now hear! Their kings are at our feet Stewards of our mud The ugly face of war Legions growing more and more Rank and File Minions marching Rank and File March with the Overlord Rank and File

Mailed Fist 04:16
Stricken with a mailed fist Our assembled might is resolute Calculated vengeance absolute with a mailed fist Arriving home to an all but vacant throne, left Without an heir, defenseless and unprepared, weak Stronger we have returned, see to it the barracks are burned, first No longer a kingdom but merely a pit of combatants and thieves, lives of no concern Barbarous, not a law left in place Now many drunk with treason from greed’s black breast Our exilers’ rife conquerability My former king’s cruel and callous court is left powerless Show them our mailed fist, show them our military might Show to them the mercy we have seen, our revenge what should have been Delivered with a mailed fist Smashed with a mailed fist Crushed! Savage penance administered, unleashing hell upon my word Crushed with a mailed fist Violence for violence, reduce their pleas to silence, death The fist swings its scythe towards the tragic loss of life, sure Our bloody campaign is nearly complete, I’ll be installed upon the seat Immediately they retreat but remember their crimes and accept not their defeat Barbarous, not a law left in place Now many drunk with treason from greed’s black breast Our exilers’ rife conquerability My former king’s cruel and callous court is left powerless Fight! Eye for an eye with interest is implied Expelled to magick slumber, returned to claim my plunder Proving to them what shouldn’t have been, I’ll excise their sins and I’d do it again I will never rest until revenge is reaped, I am obsessed! We’ll march through your square flaunting superior armour Guiltlessly reducing your humble hovel to shit Spitefully pompous our flags raised above you Exalt our parade through your conquered kingdom of shit Show them our mailed fist, show them our military might Show to them the mercy we have seen, our revenge what should have been Delivered with a mailed fist Smashed with a mailed fist Crushed! Savage penance administered, unleashing hell upon my word

I swing my axe in innumerable attacks Callous and not getting any younger I’ve seen my share of too much death to ever care But continue on and growing ever stronger Fit for fight, aggressive bloody appetite Survival sought and valor I must find Nothing changes, only war remains It is battle all the time Battle, a never ending quest Battle, battle all the time Death’s comforting caress Battle all the time Conditions the same, only violence remains With kin torn apart, bastards onward march The lethal cutting killing blades At dawn marauding murder raids Bring them to the slaughter The dead are victors, captured slaves Regardless war rewards the brave Why do they even bother? Who struggle on and join the messy throng Carnage sweeping on past the horizon Unending war is an everhungry carnivore Masterless, a choir of the dying Fit for fight, aggressive bloody appetite Survival sought but still trophies I must find Allies changing and still war remains Battle all the time Battle, battle all the time Battle on! Stretching epic campaign, violence shall remain Kingdom torn apart Carved by siege engines as if by art Infinite war!

Rally round me huntsmen, here magick meats exist In these woods mind bending meals but the prey, it shall resist How the woods exhaust, hungered hunted by displacer beast Always somewhere Keep your guard up always and stay poised for the attack Once we’re locked in combat there is no turning back How the woods exhaust, hungered hunted by displacer beast Always somewhere else Displacer feast Colored like the night sky, it stalks its territory Met with tentacles and teeth, this could get rather gory How the woods exhaust, hungered hunted by displacer beast Always somewhere Dodging side to side, don’t let it leave your eye It’s not where you are thinking, man! What a wild ride! How the woods exhaust, hungered hunted by displacer beast Always somewhere We’ve seized its psychedelic flesh but at a heavy cost It’s multiplying as we cook, our minds will soon be lost! Displacer Feast Feast on this

Kneel before the altar All extravagant dishes prepared An exciting array of candles laid out All attention to detail Preparations are made Ushered by my familiars Enter all manner of guests Join in me now chimerical cohorts A screech to this séance of sorts After all, words can be spoken So too, worded spells be unspoken Speaking now all one million and one of its unutterable names In perfect discord Arrive ye all through oaken egress and augured shrieks Here dispelling magick speaks Come to the banquet of names Fierce and merciless is the demon’s toil At the the banquet of names Control is never enough, it has fouled this soil At the banquet of names Skill devoured by mastery and never to return here Hatred commanded to bow to me fearing the tome of banishment Skill devoured by mastery and never to return here Evil commanded to bow to me Expelled by this banishing book at the banquet of names Fierce and merciless is the demon’s toil At the banquet of names Control is never enough, it has fouled this soil At the banquet of names Go on, fuck off

The curse falls hard, hits deep Desperation’s call is heard For this poor soul no rest To what end must I endure this horrid dance? Festival of barren laughter, devoid of any joyful revelry Song and dance to plague and slaughter, ceremony of human frailty Come forth to the fire, join in the dance Fleet of foot this mockery so that spells may be cast A miserable ritual you shall not last Crawl forth to the fire and join in the dance “Mine boots, cursed, tear and contort my poor body so I cannot rest, I cannot sleep, weary I tremble To this hopeless rhythmic abandon Tired beyond dreams End me, so tired, end me Please the pity to end me “Immortal I stand now, no wounding release Save for pain of exhaustion Relentless defeat, made blind to find peace Your music I cannot escape “Plummeting into perpetually painful madness And tortured in unending, unforgiving frolic I plead, I beg of you Conclude this chaotic cavorting And end my life” Acidthrash

Fearless penetrator Perverted provocateur, necrotic eroticizer, eldritch felaciator, Fearless penetrator Virile villain-pounder, valiant semenizer, nemesis ejaculator, Fearless penetrator Bound by spells, my people await heroic deeds Hermit witch curse, fuelled by her horny needs I must swoon her corpse, the kingdom’s champion sent to please My expert swordplay and broad blade brings her to her knees Into her tomb, I arrive to come and caress And without fear, poised for combat, weapon erect Her toothless mouth wraps my bone, I squeeze her breast Revolting touch, but I must do my best To fuck I barrel my way down her cobwebbed corridor Deaf to what spells she does say My curse-breaking mission to destroy her is simple Though I’m repulsed by how she behaves The time draws near, soon the lethal strike I’ll present With my tongue I grease the target to beset I prepare to enter in her slimy icy hole of regret Undead and cold but at least she’s fucking wet I’ve thrusted my way down her cobwebbed cavity Bravely blind to where I lay My curse-breaking mission destroying her howling vagina Ends in a true master’s spray The deed is done, returning the lich to ancient sleep Lifting the curse, celebrating her defeat But I’ll always remember our victory did not come cheap She left me a memento if you know what I mean Yuck!

I have had enough Even in death’s chains I have begrudging strength within me Uncalmed by the abyss My lifeless respite unrefusing of the key Free at least and soaring hate shall detonate So comes to pass, my black hammer forged with anger Festering, my enemies respected least Perverting, pounding them into warm pieces It’s driving me mad now, it’s really driving me mad now Back from death, my black hammer forged in anger Bludgeoning, I pound the living neath my hammer Heaving hate hammers Crushed skulls upon the shoulders Of the ones we hate the most Vanguard, we are the soldiers Who blindly swing our weapons at anyone we see Heaving hate hammers We are smashing your faces and then you will learn By the swing of my hammer all you fuckers can rot In the heat like the trash that you are and for a fucked eternity burn Burn

Now make your escape Escape before it’s too late (quick) Portal escape Overwhelming numbers, the damage has been done Turning tides of battle change and put you on the run Anywhere is better, not caring where you’re sent Immediate exit strategy, you must live to fight again Now make your escape Escape before it’s too late (quick) Portal escape Wounded very badly and trophies have been gathered Return again in time to kill, in death there is no honor Cast into the portal, intersubplanar travel Wormholes transport you someplace else as your fate unravels Escape! Now make your escape Escape before it’s too late (hurry) Portal escape Destination unknown but to turn and flee this world Among the stars so vast you fly with cosmic wanderlust you burn Deep within The grandeur of the gateway The scope of the journey unfathomed and in no time at all Far and how alien an act So strange, magic not a man-made thing Far and how foreign this trip Wizards fly untamed through cosmos
