Track Name: Riders of the Mark
Riders of the Mark


Here we ride, as this final battle comes
Dawn fires our steel
Red on this last ride to war

Blood of these ancient lands
Blood of the kings
Courage and honour in death

Death in my charge as we thunder through iron and bone
Warriors bred to the land

I see my home as it once was
In days when the shadows were short

Land of my fathers
Meadows of tall grass shone
Gold in the pale Autumn sun
Land of my sons
Where white flowers cover their graves

Banners fly on the horizon
Sons of Eorl
Oath-bound our lances and swords

Red eye upon us all
Facing the night
Brothers in arms at the end

Mustered for war on this field as our allies fall
Men of the West here to die

I see my home as it once was
In days when the shadows were short

Land of my fathers
Meadows of tall grass shone
Gold in the pale Autumn sun
Land of my sons
Where white flowers cover their graves

[orcish chants]

Land of my fathers
Meadows of tall grass shone
Gold in the pale Autumn sun
Land of my sons
Where white flowers cover their graves

Lords of war, death in our hearts this day
Blood stains our steel
Black on this last ride to war

Death for these ancient lands
Death for my king
Brothers in arms at the end
Track Name: This Day I Die
Lightning splits the darkening sky
Hordes gathered here waiting to die
Around me faces set with fear
Rain coming down - hiding the tears

Steeling my nerve - my weapon is drawn
Will any of us live to see the dawn?

On this field
As the clouds cry
Feel no fear
As this day I die
On wings of death
My enemies fly
I will join them now
As this day I die

Rushing forward - muddy ground
The dead rise up - a bloody mound
My weapon strikes left and then strikes right
Comrades dead and trampled in the fight

Steeling my nerve - my weapon is drawn
Will any of us live to see the dawn?

On this field
As the clouds cry
Feel no fear
As this day I die
On wings of death
My enemies fly
I will join them now
As this day I die

As this day I die
Track Name: The Atrocity
The icy winds of the plain rip through the air
We are without food and thus without a care
The aching hunger and lack of spoils
Become entangled with desperation’s coils

Glory or Death

Riding - The beating of hoof beats on hard packed earth
Charging - For death, blood and combat I have a thirst
Killing - like a pack of rabid wolves on the hunt
Bloodlust - We’re out seeking anyone to confront

Glory or Death

In the path of this, an innocent village is caught
Chaos and pain and carnage are wrought
The raping of women, the wasting of men
The hate and the fear, no pillage or gain

All the pain and death I witnessed
Tangled up inside
I sit on a lonely mountaintop
And contemplate my pride


I was a part of this
In shame I hang my head
As memories fill my mind
And tears fall for the dead

I witnessed the atrocity

I sit back and an image fills my mind
A strong man dying, elderly and kind
My mentor’s words filled my ears as I rode
“Remember always my son, the warrior’s code”

I witnessed the atrocity
Track Name: Blademaster
A dark figure in the distance
Clad in armour of blackened steel
He has come on a mission of vengeance
To force his torturers to kneel

None can face him and live

Blademaster
Steel at his side
Blademaster
Winds of hell you ride
Blademaster
Steel at his side
Blademaster

Facing his foes he gives no ground
Ending their lives without a sound
In his eyes there is no emotion
Destined to fight – battle his devotion

None can face him and live

Blademaster
Steel at his side
Blademaster
Winds of hell you ride
Blademaster
Steel at his side
Blademaster

...Master of the blade
Track Name: Carnage on the Walls of Delnoch
Six great walls surround the fortress tall
Ranged in shadow ‘gainst the sky

On the walls a figure stands alone
Realising he is here to die

Though the Nadir hordes fill the land,
I will fight when they ride and I’ll stand
Though the fires burn through the land
Let a legend be wrought by my hand

So the assault begins, warriors storming the wall
But the defence is true (a legend stands with you)

Bodies mounting, the arrows falling like rain
(The Deathwalker waits)

Though the Nadir hordes fill the land,
I will fight when they ride and I’ll stand
Though the fires burn through the land
Let a legend be wrought by my hand

Carnage on the Walls of Delnoch

In the dying rays of a blood red sun
Brothers in battle we’ll where we stand
‘midst the…

Carnage on the Walls of Delnoch

Six great walls surround the fortress tall
Ranged in Shadow ‘gainst the sky

On the walls a figure stands alone
Realising he is still alive

Though the Nadir hordes fill the land,
I will fight when they ride and I’ll stand
Though the fires burn through the land
Let a legend be wrought by my hand

Carnage on the Walls of Delnoch

The sun sets on the Drenai Empire
The sun sets forever
Track Name: Stranger
Ashes
The fire that burned inside of me
A cold wind blows within me now
I’ve banished warmth and kindness
Walking a dark road, death close behind
…without a sound

Nightmares fill my dreams with horrors
So I numb my mind -
Looking into lifeless eyes
Never standing in the light

Ashes
The fire that burned inside of me
A cold wind blows within me now
I’ve banished warmth and kindness
Walking a dark road, death close behind
…without a sound

No redemption in this land of blood
I’m the darkest stranger
Murderer…Waylander
Never standing in the light
For salvation I will fight

Stranger
Waylander
Track Name: Gellan's Lament
Gellan’s lament

Serenity flows through me
A trail of blue so pure and calm
I face my foes and take their lives
and see them fall in death…
a warrior, leader of men

Now I lay down my life

So much now lies at stake
So many here rely on me
For fate and pain and grief I

Hail
To the warriors at my side
To those who fought and died
A Curse
To the source of all above
Now hear my last lament

Lament

Battle is joined once again
And I am old and tired
The stench of war, the screams of pain
Slaughter all around
My final sacrifice at hand

On this field I die

So much now lies at stake
So many here rely on me
For fate and pain and grief I

Hail
To the warriors at my side
To those who fought and died
A Curse
To the source of all above
Now hear my last lament

I have reached the end
I have reached the end
I fall
Track Name: Behold the Runesword
Burning with power in the storm-rent sky
Thrust aloft and held up high
From the forges of gods it came
To rend the dark and win me fame

Such deeds of slaughter it could tell
Of souls it drank and sent to hell
On the winds of battle I now fly
And all who stand before me come to die

To battle I must go now
Conflict is all I know now
To battle I must go now
Conflict is all I know

Behold the Runesword

Armies of darkness rend the land
And I shall lead them sword in hand
None can face me or this fell blade
That was with sorcery made

A beacon of light in these dark times
Foes now suffer for their crimes
Sword arm rises, the false one cries
See the power of the Runesword in my eyes

To battle I must go now
Conflict is all I know now
To battle I must go now
Conflict is all I know

Behold the Runesword
Track Name: The Last Scion
A black shadow stalks the land
The fires of heresy ignite the sky
Whence gathered on the blasted plain
The Scions prepared to die

Slaughtered in their hundreds
Order reduced to ruin
Betrayed by fanatics
Last refuge of the insane

Two decades and from forest he came

Celestial hatred in weak flesh entombed
Will of malice tormenting man
Yet open wounds in the Godhead burn
To kill the one who remains

Running and hiding
Shrouded from view
Exposed for what he is
His pain begins anew

Two decades and from forest he came
Branded the liar, outlaw his name

With his blade in hand and powers returned
He runs no more, turns and stands
To face the pursuers and battle the blind
To restore true light to these shattered lands

And the last Scion rides

Back to the fields of slaughter he turns
Barren wastes of ghostly presence
To his fallen brothers he pledges his life
Acclamations sung on the winds of the dead

And the last Scion rides

He seek the knowledge, he seeks the tower
Restoring the faith and compounding his power
For his mentor and charge he knows no other way
This is his final hour, this – his last day

And the last Scion rides

A black shadow stalks the land
The fires of heresy ignite the sky
Whence gathered on the blasted plain
The Scions prepared to die
