01. The Call To Redemption

Music by Mathieu Pascal
Instrumental


02. Birds Of Sulphur

Music by Mathieu Pascal
Lyrics by Julien Deyres
Redemption always comes from the sky !

There's no escape. They deserve to perish
Pain and torture will open the gates of mass delirium
Strike all the cowards to the ground, their cursed souls shall never rest
Let my wrath spread upon the infidels so eager to murder their king

The impure blood that will flow from their wounds
Will never be enough to quench my thirst or avenge this insult
Make them suffer ! Make them pay ! Souls will plunge into decay
Death by torture ! The tormented souls shall be lost in eternal fire

BURN ! The harbingers of death shall be the Birds of Sulphur.

Faithless ! Unholy Forest Dwellers !
I will have your bodies charred in the flames of this world
Perun has prepared your stake... eternal

Heralds of fire
Open the gate to the underworld
Redemption will come from the sky

The harbingers of death shall be the Birds of Sulphur. BURN !

Attack ! Hunt them down ! Hack, chop, dismember !
No cell, no prisoner
Burn Iskorosten, burn
Redeeming fire ! They will pay with ashes
The Birds of Sulphur shall cleanse our lands of all their sins
Purification through flames. Unleash you fury !
Be the heralds of fire and make Iskorosten burn
Spread my wrath

Redeeming fire will fall from the sky

Fire will fall from the sky


03. Sailing Into The Earth

Music by Mathieu Pascal
Lyrics by Julien Deyres
Flattery being the most effective weapon to defeat the enemy
They'll be led to believe they will be borne in their ship to the castle
Lured into the gaping hole that will close upon them

They are worthy only of death. We'll bury them all alive

They shall fall into my pit of vengeance. Let them sail their grave into the earth
Nothing comes easier than killing a man. A man who believes he has won the war

The distant leader wants to marry the Queen to gain ultimate power
They came to declare a truce, trickery, penance for such abuse

With great honor I send you sailing into the earth

For the murder of the king, incarnation of God
I promise such a painful death that he will hear you suffer from the underworld
The heart of a widow is colder than mud

They are worthy only of death. We'll bury them all alive

They shall fall into my pit of vengeance. Let them sail their grave into the earth
Nothing comes easier than killing a man. A man who believes he has won the war

They shall drown in a sea of mud, souls, damnation, a permanent flood
Great pits will be dug on the shore to trap and destroy the soldiers

With great honor I send you sailing into the earth
You shall be erased from all memories
I send you sailing into the earth

The sovereign of the earth will bring you to your knees
You'll feed the worms and be as one with the earth

I want to feel your suffering and stamp the earth down over your grave

You shall fall into my pit of vengeance. Your will sail your grave into the earth
Nothing comes easier than killing men. Men who believe they already own the kingdom


04. Elements And Spirit

Music by Mathieu Pascal
Lyrics by Julien Deyres
These statues are no gods ! Just useless objects carved of wood
Now they may exist but soon they will be reduced to nothing
Left to rot away, erased by time, their ashes swept away by the wind

These soulless gods you worship are neither sacred nor human
We only built them with our own hands
But what good have these gods done ? A single element can sink them into oblivion

What good have done those gods ? We only built them with our own hands
I don't want to give my soul to demons...

I will lay the foundation stone for the sacred new empire
And God shall be the witness. I'll carry out my flawless plan
Tomorrow everything will change. You'll bow down to me

There is only one God !
Gods who let the kings die don't deserve to be honored
If the regent converts or give up the kingdom
The cult figures shall burn. They will become meaningless

Perun alone is worthy to bear the name of God
But as he is a vengeful spirit, he can't wash me of my sins

I must harness the elements to take my revenge
Let fire burn them, water drown them, earth bury them
And let their cries for mercy be carried on the wind... only then will I find peace...
Faith will bring us a new way of life, the road to redemption
When my time comes, I will rejoice in eternal rest
Looking down upon my work from heaven, I will laugh at the chaos I created
I will avenge the King ! Impure blood shall drench the earth

My new road leads south. I will not look behind me
Moving from hell towards the light, their God is my God

I will lay the foundation stone for the sacred new empire
And God shall be the witness. I'll carry out my flawless plan
Tomorrow everything will change. You'll bow down to me


05. The Axe Of God

Music by Mathieu Pascal
Lyrics by Julien Deyres
They have learnt to fight in the forest and live in harmony with nature
They have knowledge of a territory that is hostile to us

I know there is nothing they can fear
But the anger of the Queen
The Axe of God
The Axe of their own God

We can't let them have an opportunity to control the entire river
But it would certainly be the best way to bring them down

Tonight, the Axe will collect a bloody harvest of heads
Let the Almighty Perun lend me strength and bravery
And let the gruesome scene of your impaled bodies along the ways
Reveal to the world the price of such a crime

Let the Almighty Perun lend me strength and bravery
I swear the eternal oath ! I am now the arm of God
The Axe of God

You will ever regret your felony
When my soldiers rape your wives
And when I make your children be my slaves until they die

This is the first tribe that refused to submit to the king's command
They must be the only ones who chose to fight against our will

Now they no longer believe in knowing the slightest fear
It's time to for them to pay
Befall on their heads the wrath of gods

I know there is nothing they can fear
But the Axe of their own God
Vengeance is ours
Now, vengeance is mine


06. 5000 At The Funeral

Music by Mathieu Pascal
Lyrics by Julien Deyres
O dear traitors, come confidently
I wish you to come by the thousand
Gallons of mead shall be prepared in the city where the King was killed
Let us cry on his grave and have a ceremony for him

It's in sign of peace I invite you all to a great banquet
I promise that there will be more than enough to eat and drink
You may taste many beverages that even the gods could never dream of
But I cannot give my hand while I am in mourning

It is time to get to know each other, Now !
Let's found a new and stronger kingdom together
Unveil all your secrets
We know how to subjugate

O dear traitors !
Only a blood bath can wash you of your sins

You will swallow the bitter flood of your own death

Now you shall face the raging river of our merciless vengeance
You're invited to the funeral that will soon be yours

Panic ! Laughter !
You'll be howling with pain
When the wine in your mouth turns into blood
Under the sharp daggers of my soldiers
Only your pain will wash your sins

You will know the punishment of the Luxurious
Soon... Dark blood will feed the earth

Now you shall face the raging river of our merciless vengeance
You're invited to the funeral that will soon be yours


07. Carved In The Wind

Music by Mathieu Pascal
Lyrics by Julien Deyres
The wild ones must be slain
Vengeance fulfilled by the wrath of the Great One
O Perun ! Utter the ancient words of power
Allow me to cast a merciless doom upon them
O Perun ! May we strike them harder than stone

Let's remember...
We must remind them the holy power belongs only to us
And none but the gods have decided
Varangians always had control of the River
It's time to prove it. It's time to prove it now

If they feel at one with the earth
I promise they will soon be as one
Their lungs will be filled with mud and worms
They will drown in their own blood
Their bones will be consumed by flames
And their suffering will be engraved in the air

Let's remember...
We must remind them the holy power belongs only to us
And none but the gods have decided
Varangians always had control of the river
It's time to prove it. It's time to prove it. Now !

We will erect a memorial to the glory of the King
Sculptured by suffering and tormented cries
A divine masterpiece made with our own hands
That will be etched in the winds forever

I swear he will soon join you. My pain carried by the wind.
I swear I will avenge you. He so wants to take your place...
I'm afraid he has no fear.
But I've sworn. I will go through with my duty.

The cries of pain shall echo in the air to be carved in the wind
This is how we will accomplish this terrifying work
Let Stribog spread the chant of agony

Let's remember...
We must remind them the holy power belongs only to us
And none but the gods have decided
Let Stribog spread the chant of their agony
And carve their suffering in the wind


08. Varangian Paradise

Music by Mathieu Pascal
Lyrics by Julien Deyres
When the best men of Dereva arrive
They will be welcomed with open arms
Here they will find the food the women and the wine

Soak the shoots of birch
Heat the water scorching hot
Fill the room with steam
Until they can barely see each other

We'll send for the most graceful women of all the land
To serve and pleasure you
We'll do everything to make our guests feel at ease

Soak the shoots of birch
Heat the water scorching hot
Fill the room with steam
Until you can barely see each other

Only the most illustrious men are welcome
Then we may go to your prince with great honor
So, make your first steps into heaven on earth
Here life is only pleasure and delight...
Give way to your most unholy desires

Burn ! Ill-famed traitors ! Now suffer my wrath !

Soon the burning breath of vengeance will escape from your bodies

You shall taste our Varangian Paradise
After you all have bathed, you shall come to me

Steam so thick you can't see anymore
Scorching heat becomes the air you breathe
Sighs are filled with suffocating smoke
Thrash, kick and lick your bodies with burning tongues

The love juice running down
Your thighs burning and boiling
The air now filled with the smell of melting flesh
And you have become flames


09. Tribute Of Blood

Music by Mathieu Pascal
Lyrics by Julien Deyres
We can wait for years outside
Great will be our pleasure to hear you beg
We know it won't be long before you to run out of resources
Soon you will not have enough to survive
You'll become only dead branches
And I'll burn all traces of your existence

We are the wolves among the herd
We'll take out the whole flock one by one
If you do not kill us now, we will destroy you all
So get out of your cage and pay what we demand

Let the eternal punishment befall on your heads
You're about to pay your debt with your own blood

I can't content myself with honey, wax and furs
But your muddy blood that will nourish the roots
Of the World Tree you have betrayed

We are the wolves among the herd
We'll take out the whole flock one by one
If you do not kill us now, we will destroy you all
So get out of your cage and pay what we demand

Let the eternal punishment befall on your heads
You're about to pay your debt with your own blood

Mindless fools ! Will you abandon madness for reason ?

Let the eternal punishment befall on your heads
You're about to pay your debt with your own blood

This fortress will become your tomb
Troops are hidden in the deep dark of night
We'll crush the last hope of your kind

We are wolves among the herd
We'll take out the whole flock one by one
If you do not kill us now, we will destroy you all
So get out of your cage and pay what we demand

Let the eternal punishment befall on your heads
You're about to pay your debt with your own blood
