Morts 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!

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!

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.

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..

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!

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

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!”

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!”

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!

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
