L. R. Got my tape in the mail yesterday. Such crushing sword & sorcery riffs. I really want to hear more from this band. It combines the best elements of doom metal and old school NWOBHM.

Edit: This has quickly become a staple of my tape deck. Really exceptional work. Every track just destroys. Favorite track: Grimlock.

Track Name: Waste of Kings
Waste of Kings

Braving the forest
Crossing the plains
Scaling the fortress
Heart wrought with pain
Branded the outcast
Thrown to the wild
Coming to crush you
Meek and the mild

I fight, with her, sword on my side
Lay waste to all you abide
Suffer, have no reprieve
In your grave you will writhe

Bastard pariah
Son of the queen
Come to remind you
Her blood flows through me

I fight to stomp out all of your lies
Fierce hate, for all that you sire
False lord, failing to lead
By this sword you will die

Cling to your last breath
Beg for mercy
Blood fills the throne room
King’s last decree

I fight, with her, sword on my side
Slay, slash, end your bloodline
Revenge, sought without fear
I am vengeance, you are swine.
Track Name: Witness The Fire
Witness the Fire

Biting winds crawl down
Howl from mountaintops
Freezing land and sea
Rivers slow and stop
Turned to statues all
Caught in winters wake
Running for your life
Shelter, none to take

Blackened winters bring white snow
Crushing all that breeds new life
Falling hopelessly to trial
All witness the fire

Sky is set alight
Embers turn to flame
Age of pestilence
Hallow be thy name
Turn to dust and ash
Seeds of death are sewn
Crushing veil of grief
Fields of flesh and bone

Witness the fire, Witness the blood
Plague falls like rain from your gods up above
Thousands of locust, black out the sun
Waiting salvation, the deathbringer comes

Hail the victor, bow unto thee
Watchful eyes preying while kingdoms asleep
All your woes petty, precious desires
Lay down your weapons, witness the fire
Track Name: Grimlock

I saw you crawling through the tall grass
Bruised and beaten crawling slow
Held you close until your last breath
Last faint words I’ll never know
Tracking trail, beast on horseback
Swamps and hills, down through the briar
Hoof prints end upon a cliffs edge
Overlooking funeral pyres

Fall upon the shrine of seers
Heart of the malign
Life, a memory, fast fading
Death to the divine

Calling out into the darkness
Lurid cry that knows no beast
Chilling echoes fill the cold mist
Shapeshifting sorceress at feast

Blind is the mortal
Crooked path, serpentines
Ragged and stumbling
Blood scattered like fallen leaves

Crippled by madness
No legion to hear your pleas
Weakened and desperate
Sinking raft on endless seas
Track Name: Torchlight

Dark horizon turns to light
While the rope around your neck fits oh so tight
Footsteps break the silence
Growing steady, slow and strong
Their breath and ugly shadows grow so long

We fight
By torchlight
We fight tonight

Rusty steel rains down fast
While the noble blood spills swiftly from this caste
Rising from our trenches
Our oppressors laid to waste
Usurping thrones and savoring the taste

Not from your lands will you flee
Shackles break, run, you are free
Raise up your fists to the sky
Our time of vengeance is nye
