Scumbag The ambitious debut album establishes the basis of the Claim The Throne sound. Despite the lineup changes that they've undergone since this incarnation it is clearly identifiable here. The production is lacking clarity when compared to subsequent releases, but that doesn't keep if from being collection-worthy!

Track Name: Hunting The Stars
He gazed upon the shifting sands
“What is this trickery?!”
Betrayal in the most grotesque of forms.
“You will die Ardimus!” said a voice
‘Never! You foul minion of darkness!”


This blood upon thy blade
With honest hands twas made


And so this long awaited battle
had finally began
under the overlooking stars of the night.
“Come forth!” they cried unto Ardimus.
“Unleash your wrath!”


This blood upon thy blade
With honest hands twas made
Oh oh oh
With blood upon thy blade
One thousand men ye has sleighed
Oh oh oh

(Scars from a battle once fought
- a battle once lost..)


We’ll stand tall
and never let the horizon fall!

On blood red snow he lies
This soil – once undisturbed
Now littered
With fallen heroes

As he looked upon the stars
with great awe
they spoke to him..
“Rise stronger, soldier of Marisneon,
Find yon power!”


Where does the valley end..
when the coldness subsides,
and the oceans are drifting away..
Into eternity
Life without end
Hidden behind the shadows of death…


Buried in the frost,
deep into the burning sky,
tears of blood pouring from their eyes.
Beyond what is now hungrily reaping
their pitiful souls passing through the gates
Winters Embrace


Although the lives of thousands were lost in battle
their legacy remained true..
This homeland forsaken
The scream of revenge!


Watching the moonlit night fade
Watching it slip away
Facing what is the only friend of a tear
Waiting for this to end now
Waiting to slip away
Facing a slow demise of a green kingdom.


Cold steel he has tasted
Now a cold fate he awaits
Hunting the stars to save thou soul.
Slain by savage hands
Slain by a mortal enemy
Slain by a tyrant
of true evil and hate


This blood upon thy blade
With honest hands twas made
Oh oh oh
(Scars from a battle once fought
- a battle once lost..)
With blood upon thy blade
One thousand men ye has sleighed
Oh oh oh

(Scars from a battle once fought
- a battle once lost..)


Guardians of old
Hearken our call!
Track Name: The Order Of The Bleeding Heart
As the honest ones go forth
and the brave step unto the plain
No hesitance exists
No fear will be displayed
The warriors’ll fight for the good of all
Freedom for the realm
And hast strength over yon land
The ravens hear our tune


“Be true to yourself, and stand strong and tall
For we are the Order of the Bleeding Heart
Fight as one
Fight with wisdom
Fight for all”


Deep along the path appears a monk,
Heavily draped with a hood.
His sinister chants echo into the night
As do the howls of the wolves..
An honest knight emerges from the flames
A bolt of lightning strikes
“Douse the torches!” a call from the dark
The Path of the Dead is approaching


“Be true to yourself, and stand strong and tall
For we are the Order of the Bleeding Heart
Fight as one
Fight with wisdom
Fight for all”


And in their darkest hour they will fear death…
But this fear will give them strength,
to fight the minions of ages.
The flame of life and hope will burn!


Echos through the forest will call
For a legion of trust and of valour
To fight in the harshest of winds
To tread through the deepest snow and ravage the script of misery

Our steel shall tear through the flesh of vile and immorality
To hack and dismember our foes, and torture their souls
Blood will splatter on the ground
A war-axe will act as our tongues
And shred through the gizzards and bones of this putrid filth

A sharpened broadsword and a barbarian’s axe
Will rip like the teeth of a bear
Destructive powers pummel liars and deceit
And feeds our pride


Scars of destruction
Fear condemnation
Calls of advancement
Tales of a gory end

Spears and bows will shoot arrows towards the hordes of evil minions
These strong-willed men of our powerful land
Will lead us to a bloody victory


The Age of Blood has carried through the land
For years a many now
An old man who stands upon the mountainside
Has seen reprisal come
For the honest Order of the Bleeding Heart
Shall welcome the new age
To live a prophecy
And be proud to the name

“Be true to yourself, and stand strong and tall
For we are the Order of the Bleeding Heart
Fight as one
Fight with wisdom
Fight for all”


A journey through the valleys
An aura of bliss
All wretchedness behind us

The river is flowing gently
Drifting all woes away

Clean crisp air caresses thou skin
It collects the greying day
And traps thou soul

Shady oaks and morning dew
Yon troubles far, far away.
Track Name: Blacklore
These woods were once the splendour of creation
They’ve seen many bloody battles
Now they endure a wretched existence
Only knowing
murder and hate..
Track Name: Triumphant March Of The Draconic Legion
Reprise!
All you warriors of might
For the age of the wolf has arrived
Stand high
War axe in one hand
The Draconic Legion shall rise!

Advance!
All you warriors of pride
For the time has arrived to destroy
Stand high
Wield your swords in two hands
Watch the ancient kingdom of Tel-Serion fall..


Ages of Greed
Fires of Might
Winds blowing viciously
The markings of the trail are swept away


A bolt of lightning fills the sky
The valiant war gods have heard our cry


Onwards we ride unto the plains of Windaria Feruk
With swords and shields we courageously tackle the northern breeze
Sorcery is practiced in these dark lands
Now into battle we march, with the strength of the gods
Carnage, butchery, slaughter, bloodshed
Swords of Gore

Storming upon the cold mountainside
There lurks a moan
From a creature of ages past who lives there alone
Storming in on the summits, the time is nigh..
Whoever may cross this path will surely die!
Track Name: The Wandering Minstrel
We’ll see the moon shine upon the crimson plain
And along the dusty path the leaves blow in the wind
The wandering minstrel has shown us of fate and time
Track Name: Words Of The Great Oak
Darkness covering a kingdom
Stolen, evil intruding beyond our walls
A princess of honour and beauty
Retribution shall help us, but still we mourn...


Bringer of sorrows, murder and tears


An army of evil is amid us
Malicious and hearts black as sin
They have taken the purest amongst us
Reprisal shall help us, but still we mourn..


Bringer of sorrows, murder and tears
Thou hast extinguished our past
The creation of years now gone


We have been left here with nothing
Swords aiming to the skies
Now we defend our land and fight

We have been left here with nothing
Nothing but hate and lies
Now we defend our land and fight


Forward unto the dusty path
Tearing along the mountainside
The enchanted forest awaits us
Revenge shall help us, but still we mourn..


Bringer of sorrows, murder and tears
Thou hast extinguished our past
The creation of years now gone


We have been left here with nothing
Swords aiming to the skies
Now we defend our land and fight

We have been left here with nothing
Nothing but hate and lies
Now we defend our land and fight

See desire escaping from our eyes
As the fall of night draws near
In the distance hear the echoes of our cries
For thy will soon be the banished one

One final glance into infinity
This tranquil silence lost
Behold this sacred sovereignty
As thy is cast unto a world of eternal sin



“Dimidium facti qui coepit habet
sapere aude”



Deep through the fog of the fire and smoke
We shall seek for the words of the augmented oak
We are in need for cure to restore ones health
We’ll do what it takes, be it battle or wealth..


“A potion doth dwell, and a cure doth exist
Ye shall sacrifice lives if you choose to persist.
But for the cure of a princess so young, and so pure
You brave warriors should travel west towards Mel-Tuha”


These hearts
That are so strong
These hearts
That beats like hammers
These hearts
That are glorious red
These hearts
Will pound as one!


“With my wisdom wise,
I shall conquer all!
My blade shall carry me
To this victory!”

“You will never pass these gates,
You will never take the blood of me!
Watch me splatter this soil with your gore
I will tear in to your soul!”
Track Name: The Relic
Seeking a relic upon the mountainside
…and forward unto the valley of kings we ride

For countless nights we have searched these lands with courage and in pride
…and forward unto the valley of kings we ride


Wish and dream for an innocent pathway
But if peril lurks we will stay and fight
“There dwells a relic of prosperous fortunes”
sing the bards from beyond the trees
“Ye must search high and low”


Danger doth approach us but we shall fight and never hide
…and forward unto the valley of kings we ride

Many soldiers have crossed these lands yet many soldiers have died
…but in strength we ride unto the valley of kings!


Wish and dream for an innocent pathway
But if peril lurks we will stay and fight
“There dwells a relic of prosperous fortunes”
sing the bards from beyond the trees
“And lo! The relic has appeared ‘neath the leaves!”
Track Name: The Battle For Marisneon
Charge!

This land was ours from the dawn of time
A world where we reigned and lived our lives as one
As time advances we struggle to survive
But we’ll live on for as long
as our blades are held high!


When there’s a trace of evil approaching..
We’ll fight with one hand
Our ground we shall stand!


Right now!
We raise our weapons to fight for our freedom
and our right to survive
Now die!
A cruel trickle of blood is exposed
We will fight until this battle is ours!


We’ll take our lives abroad to sing beneath the sky
All dwarves and elves in the hills will hear our battle cries
With many hungry men
and many hungry hearts
There shall be no one, more stronger than thou..

When all hearts and swords are shattered
We will not give in
A fire burns within


Right now!
We raise our weapons to fight for our freedom
and our right to survive
Now die!
A cruel trickle of blood is exposed
We will fight until this battle is ours!
Track Name: In Valour
We welcome the man who returned from a land
where only the brave return
He came back to the town when the wind died down
and only the brave return
