Are you the kind of listener who likes thought provoking lyrics? Do you like the sound of complex and technical instrumental arrangements? Do you like an over all sophisticated sound from a band? If so, then I shall tell you straight up. Manowar is NOT for you.
Death to the false ones Dance on a string 'Til the blood on your sword is the blood of a king 'Til the blood on your hand is the blood of a king Blood of the Kings I hear the silent voices I cannot hide The gods leaves no choices so we all must die Oh Achilles let thy arrows fly.
Into the wind, where eagles cross the sky Today my mortal blood will mix with sand It was foretold I will die by thy hand Into Hades my soul descend Achilles, Agony and Ecstasy in Eight Parts Heavy metal or no metal at all wimps and posers leave the hall Metal Warriors If you're not into metal, you are not my friend Metal Warriors Rule in hell or serve in heaven choose an altar or throne All Commandments and the laws of man disown Now eat the fruit of knowledge unto no one ye atone Into the fire with your soul!
Warriors of the World United Into the darkness I command my soul Never shall I repent, never shall I be saved I go into the house of death Before my last breath my enemies all shall die House of Death Power of the Universe had sired a Son He was baptized by Fire Water Earth and Sky From darkness he rose up in Triumph To ascend the Throne of Light And He Alone shall forever be known As the King of Kings The Ascension All the days of his life He walked without fear All whose lives he touched Were made better for knowing him As he returned goodness with good So true is justice and retribution were unfailing All the days of his life He walked without fear All who's lives he touched Were made better for knowing him As he returned goodness with good So true is justice and retribution were unfailing King of Kings His sacred blood mixed with black wind and rain wept down from the world tree deep into the earth.
He commanded the earth to crack open and to spew forth the strongest of the strong! On this day he did bestow unto the world the sons of Odin!
The Blood of Odin And in their hour of need He sent forth onto them The Berserker Rage Now gods embed They rose up from the ground Screaming like wild animals Such is the gift of absolute power No blade or weapon would hurt them They killed them and horses alike And all who stood before them died that day Hail Gods Of War.
