simfers Man, was I ever stoked when I got that Bandcamp notification... And this didn't disappoint. This is at least as epic as their debut, and that's a high bar to clear. Favorite track: The Courage to Die.

Track Name: Pendragon
Legend tells of a sword in a stone and a King to come,
None can prevail indeed so many fail that they say it’ll never be done.
But one young man takes the hilt in his hand as the crowd looks on,
He lifts it high, holds the blade to the sky and the people know he’s the one.

The time has come now for Arthur Pendragon
To bring peace and order to Albion…

With the blade in hand he’ll rule the land,
Shape a nation he’ll leave as his legacy,
As the Saxons attack he will drive them all back,
He is Arthur Pendragon the King of a nation reborn.

Legend tells of a hunt for the grail and of gallantry,
Of noble knights; of their prowess and might; of the birth of chivalry
Now Arthur’s tricked by his sister’s sick evil sorcery,
She’ll steal his seed and she’ll use it to breed a son twisted to villainy.

The time has come now for Arthur Pendragon
To save Camelot from his progeny…

With his blade in hand he ruled the land,
Shape a nation he’ll leave as his legacy.
And as Mordred attacks he must drive his son back;
He is Arthur Pendragon the King of a nation now torn.

How could it fall apart?
His rule so wise and true,
As Mordred finds his heart,
His sword finds Mordred’s too!

The time has come now for Arthur Pendragon
To sail to the lost isle of Avalon…

With his blade in hand he ruled the land,
Shaped a nation he left as his legacy.
And though for him we lack it is said he’ll come back,
He is Arthur Pendragon the King of our nation,
And one day our King will return!
Track Name: Inquisitor
Sat upon his throne in judgement;
His mission to save the land,
You’ll know when your time has come
That your fate lies in his hands…
Smooth walls of a cold stone chamber
Paid for with the price of sin,
The lines of the guilty wait,
Let the punishments begin.

Lead them in chains,
Purify them with flames,
No one will speak their names,
Only dust will remain.

One word and the fires claim them,
Like candles they burn bright,
Will you watch as they scream and writhe?
Does it make what you do seem right?
As they burn do you think of mercy?
Would you change anything you’ve done?
The lines of the guilty wait,
Oh your work has just begun…

Lead them in chains,
Purify them with flames,
No on will speak their names,
Only dust will remain.

Inquisitor
How many have you saved?
Inquisitor
Inquisitor
In the blood of the damned you bathe,
Inquisitor
Is it sin that you pray for fame?

Lead them in chains,
Purify them with flames,
No one will speak their names,
Only dust will remain.

Inquisitor
How many have you saved?
Inquisitor
Inquisitor
In the blood of the damned you bathe,
Inquisitor
Is it sin that you pray for fame?
Track Name: Buccaneers
Press-ganged to the King’s navy,
Half way through the voyage there was a mutiny,
Now we live by the pirate’s code,
Enjoying our share of the gold…
When capturing ships we find,
Spices and silks keep our pockets nicely lined,
So give us a jot of rum,
And we’ll jolly well roger along…

Oh, we sail the seven seas
Yes, we roam where e’r we please
For the thrill of the fight
Raiding booty day and night,
Hooks for hands, peggéd legs and skulls on hats,
Oh, we’re pirates for life only death will end that!

This life is not one of ease;
Raiding the coast makes you lots of enemies.
My crew are my faithful hands,
And we’re wanted in six different lands.
Be you slave or merchant or king,
You work for me now, your new life shall begin.
Above me there’s no higher rank;
So get scrubbing or you’ll walk the plank!

Oh, we sail the seven seas
And we roam where e’r we please
For the thrill of the fight
Raiding booty day and night,
Hooks for hands, peggéd legs and skulls on hats,
Oh, we’re pirates for life only death will end that!

And when the day is done
And the crew have had their fun,
We’ll splice the main-brace and we’ll say…
It’s a pirate’s life let’s go heave-ho!

Oh, we sail the seven seas
Yes we roam where e’r we please
For the thrill of the fight
Raiding booty day and night,
Hookéd hands, peggéd legs and skulls on hats,
Oh we’re pirates for life only death will end that!
Yes we sail the seven seas,
Oh, we roam where e’r we please,
For the thrill of the fight
Raiding booty day and night,
Tattered flags, crooked boughs and broken planks;
We’re all pirates for life only death will end that!
Track Name: Unto the Breach
Amidst the slaughter on a field of blood and butchery,
We must take the castle or the day will end in tragedy,
Caught in the shadow of a stone sent from a quarter mile away,
Its impact shakes the land,
The walls no longer stand…

…And now we ride

Unto the Breach,
Onwards to victory,
Forwards together the end is in reach.
Glory we seek,
Our place in history,
Legends are made as we fall
Unto the Breach

Fortifications turned to rubble, bodies strewn in piles
The men who lay crushed and wounded fill the air with helpless cries,
Push ever forwards if you want to live; and even if you die,
Your story will live on forever more, a legend born!

Unto the Breach,
Onwards to victory,
Forwards together the end is in reach.
Glory we seek,
Our place in history,
Legends are made as we fall
Unto the Breach

Unto the Breach,
Onwards to victory,
If we push through now the end is in reach.
Glory we seek,
Our place in history,
Legends are made as we fall
Unto the Breach

Unto the Breach,
Onwards to victory,
Forwards together the end is in reach.
Glory we seek,
Our place in history,
They will remember us all,
And our legends are made as we fall
Unto the Breach
Track Name: Sagaborne
The call to battle is a chance to earn immortality,
To carve your name with the edge of a blade into eternity

Hammer on the anvil,
Storm winds at your back,
With a crash of thunder you attack.

With every foe cut down your star burns brighter in the sky,
The stories told this day, your legend, will stand the test of time,
See the stars align.

Cattle, kith and kin die,
And all men die too,
Only thing that lives on is what you do…

And when the fighting is done,
When the victory’s won,
You claim your destiny.
With every glory you take one step closer
To what you were fated to be…
Sagaborne.

Now march to war!

Stand, fight, live on
Stand, fight, die well
Stand, fight,
Send them to hell.

Your tale is told across the nations; from mountains to the sea.
Your legend inked into the bloodstained pages of history.

Cattle, kith and kin die,
And all men die too,
Only thing that lives on is what you do…

And when the fighting is done,
When the victory’s won,
You claim your destiny.
With every glory you take one step closer
To what you were fated to be…
And now you’ll live eternally!
Sagaborne.
Track Name: The Courage to Die
Now for the fight of our lives,
With our banners held high and our brothers by our sides.
This is how it begins;
In the old tales of glory the righteous are destined to win,
But the stories don’t say,
Of the fear in our hearts and our longing for homes far away,
Of the loved ones we may never see again;
What will they do if we fall?
If we fall…

Now we will see for ourselves,
With the ordered attack as the archers are unleashing hell
Arrows rain from the sky,
Turning men into meat but it’s ours not to reason why,
Oh the stories don’t say
Of the mess a man makes as his life’s blood is pouring away,
I put faith in the sword in my hand
As we make our way towards the wall,
Towards the wall

Pain and horror’s all I feel,
Over the sound of the clashing of steel,
My life may end upon this night,
But my heart is full of the courage to die.

Fight and we’ll die side by side,
Reaping the honour the call for victory,
Bleed for the glory you seek,
Sealing our fate as we fall unto the breach,
And we’ll die side by side,
Reaping the honour the call for victory,
Bleed for the glory you seek,
Sealing our fate as we fall unto the breach.

Smoke clears from the battlefield,
A cry bursts forth as the breach is revealed,
Charge now, get deep in to the fight
With a heart that’s full of the courage to die.

Pain and horror’s all I feel,
Over the sound of the clashing of steel,
My life may end upon this night,
But my heart is full of the courage to die.
Track Name: Heart of the Brave
The truth is my sword and I will sharpen the blade;
I put all my faith into the heart of the brave.

A wasteland that fills my vision;
A mass extinction of the way I was living.
They told me of a chosen one
Flown to near the sun
As the world started burning

All my life they told a different story;
Got to find the truth before they can put me down…

As I stand here alone,
I put my faith in the heart of the brave,
I’ve come so far from home
Is there anyone left to save?
As I face the unknown,
I put my faith in the heart of the brave,
So I must carry on,
Even though I march to the grave.

A journey, a quest that rules me,
At every turn they try to break my dedication.
Filled to the brim with all their lies,
Screaming to the skies,
I will have my vindication!

All my life they told a different story;
Got to find the truth before they can put me down…

As I stand here alone,
I put my faith in the heart of the brave,
I’ve come so far from home
Is there anyone left to save?
As I face the unknown,
I put my faith in the heart of the brave,
So I must carry on,
Even though I march to the grave.

I’ll take this journey to the end
To save the ones I must defend.

The truth is my sword and I will sharpen the blade;
I put all my faith into the heart of the brave.

As I stand here alone,
I put my faith in the heart of the brave,
I’ve come so far from home
Is there anyone left to save?
As I face the unknown,
I put my faith in the heart of the brave,
So I must carry on,
Even though I march to the grave.
Track Name: Blackened Sky
There’s an icy wind that’s blowing from the frozen lands
It’s an omen of destruction by an evil hand
Prophecies of legions unleashing death and pain
We must fight or life will never be the same again

War is upon us all now
Take up your sword and shield
Ride with the mighty legions
Into the bloody field

On the dark horizon shadows begin to rise
As a blood red moon is shining through the cloudy skies
With a dreadful howling war cry the beasts attack
Now the time has come for battle; no turning back!

Under a blackened sky the armies unite
Ready to face their foes and prepared to fight
Standing tall in the cold winter night
Praying for fate to be on their side

These beasts who take the shape of men will stop at nothing to seize our lands as their own. We must show them who we are! May our swords strike with fury, and our arrows fly true! Have at thee, for honour and for victory! Have at thee!

The battle’s underway already men are falling
We cannot win this fight
There’ll be no one left standing by the light
The bloodshed sickening around me friends lay dying
They come at us again
We cannot hold, is this the end?

Another step they take the tide has started turning
The dead lay all around
The enemy begin to grind us down
I see men turn away and give a shout of warning
Nobody seems to hear
They start to run the end is near!

Onwards ride
For glory on this night
We still stand
So raise your shields
Our enemies shall kneel
We will have our victory!

We are the last survivors
Standing to hold the line
All that we love behind us
We’ll fight now and for all time
We are the last protectors
Fighting the tyranny
Holding back the invasion
To save our liberty
We are the retribution
Standing for what is just
Our struggle shall be remembered
When all has turned to dust
Weep for our fallen brothers
They made their final stand
Honour their sacrifices
They died to save our land

When the baleful shadows engulf the brightest skies,
And when winter’s chill pierces the Earth with its frigid embrace,
All that for which we have striven seems destined to be lost;
A fading ember in the twilight.

When the dawn of hope is extinguished by the sorrowful night,
And the tides of war herald the darkest of times,
We must look to the one who can guide us to freedom;
Lead us now as a King, and we shall follow you forever!

Under a blackened sky the armies unite
Ready to face their foes and prepared to fight
Standing tall in the cold winter night
Praying for fate to be on their side


And so it was, we had victory, but at what cost? For though the battle was over, the war had just begun…

Till next we meet…

Under a blackened sky!
