Nazgul 03:48
Corruption came in through the day To get the foretold Much to the halfling's dismay The Nine's spirit was sowed Black riders have come for me The wraith it attracts to me The lord of light we seek To enslave the weak Your soul, bound to mine To the master's hand I belong Ride forth, claim me, the Nine! Claim me, claim me, claim me the Nine! They'll hunt, they'll follow The Witch King will ride Fell riders, behold my might To the ends of the earth!

The Admiral 05:03
Grandfather, Grandfather The northern seas are calling Defend the country from the Englishmen Outnumbered, outgunned The waves are crashing through the lines Yet standing tall in victory Fire all cannons, sink their ships Raid their home, burn them down Sacrifice to save the Dutch Republic The Admiral, he fights to free the seas Sail the waters, sound the thunder The Admiral, he fights to free the seas De Ruyter A hero to his people He set sail to Stromboli A cannonball ripped his life away He came home a martyr A well respected sailor Saluted by his enemies Fire all cannons, sink their ships Raid their home, burn them down Sacrifice to save the Dutch Republic The Admiral, he fights to free the seas Sail the waters, sound the thunder The Admiral, he fights to free the seas De Ruyter

The wild thunder's rollin' Across the desert sky Heatwaves are ending As day turns to night Howling winds are blowing loudly Against the sandy road Through the dusty air You'll see her riding through (Leather love) Lover She wears skin-tight leather And studded boots Her heavy metal horse ridin' Ripping through the air If you see her riding to you Beware She'll cut your heart from you To shred, rip, and tear (Leather love) Lover Leather lover, leather lover (Leather love) Lover

Battosai 04:52
Killed with my sword striking with no remorse Countless lives have died Through the years I have raged Now those times are gone I have put away my blade But my past seems to stay I can never cast away My reverse blade helps the people My reverse blade fights the evil No more death count under my name Justice served, do you not be vain Battosai Hear them cry Manslayer You will die My past has scarred Printed on my face I have always wondered What lies beyond my fate Woah Battosai My reverse blade helps the people My reverse blade fights the evil No more death count under my name Justice served, do you not be vain Battosai Hear them cry Manslayer You will die

Torn and severed at the heart Beaten to a pulp Trying to break free from my enemies Hearing sounds of iron thunder My soul bursts into flames No more shall I squander my screams of rage Still believe in freedom without being free Life is full of pain, I'll learn and pay the fee Riding all the anchors, marching through the hate Shred the empty promise, unlock the razor's gate! Eyes to the horizon, don't look back Always move fast towards destiny Power up for the next attack Stand your ground 'cause you're stronger than before! Breaking out of my cage, all the shackles crumble The voices of reason say, you can't be so humble Hear the crowds assemble, craving one more fight Against the wicked world, watch freedom's fire ignite!

Far Away 04:59
I see you life is fading as I hold your hands I remember all times we shared those happy laughs As I close my eyes, the tears rolling down my face Feeling sorrow within my heart, you leave this world with grace Here I stand, far away from you my friend Far away, distant memories come home Here I stand, next to you my friend And I know, you have gone away from here Words cannot describe these feelings as you drift away All the voices in my head are asking you to stay As time goes on I wonder, where I should have been Without your heart I have nowhere to begin again Here I stand, far away from you my friend Far away, distant memories come home Here I stand, next to you my friend And I know, you have gone away from here

They've taken my youth, they've taken my heart And I've been thrown away from the start A slaughtered innocence embracing my life I was made to watch the human strife But now I've gained control of my consciousness There is no escape for those you resist My dark temptation has slowly grown Into the monster I've never known And while it grows inside I follow your demise There's no turning back From the monster's eyes I am the monster I'm gonna lose control I have desire No one will ever know I am the monster I was born from pain No sense of your embrace From the dark whence I came I suffered through loneliness for so long Forgotten myself and where I belong For those around me have hatred at heart For my existence they'll rip apart And when the tears run dry It's time for you to die And while you run away The monster's here to stay I am the monster I'm gonna lose control I have desire No one will ever know I am the monster I was born from pain No sense of your embrace From the dark whence I came

about

Behold, the wait is over.

Two years in the making, and with a new lineup, we present our debut album, "Will of the Warrior", a strong addition to the NWOTHM and USPM scene. For fans of Accept, Mercyful Fate, Judas Priest, Scorpions.

This 8 track album includes our singles from our latest release, "Nazgul" and "Stronger Than Before" with new and improved mixes.

"The Admiral" is an ode to the famous Dutch admiral, Michiel Adriaenszoon de Ruyter (1607-1676), who fought to protect the small Dutch Republic against powerful enemies, the English and French. He lost his life in the very end of the war with France, but was immortalized by both allies and enemies for his valor and tactical prowess. The song itself is akin to a late 80s Running Wild piece that places the listener onto a large warship out at sea.

"Leather Lover" is a throwback to 80s heavy metal hits, inspired by "Princess of the Dawn" by Accept and "Make It Real" by Scorpions, with a USPM twist. Lyrically, it tells the story of a heartbreaking, leather-clad motorcycle woman who finds her next "victim".

"Battosai" tells the tale of the legendary ronin, Kenshin Himura, from the anime and manga series, "Ruroni Kenshin" (or Samurai X), who gave his life of killing for a life of protecting peace, using a reversed blade sword. This song is reminiscent of Iron Maiden, with a USPM twist and Baroque-era inspired musicality.

"Far Away" is a power ballad, dedicated to family members who have departed from this world. This song was heavily inspired by "I Died For You" by Iced Earth, achieving the somber melodies that explode into heavy chorus. The intro solo was performed by our bass player, Nate, inspired by "Yellow Raven" by Scorpions.

"Journey to the West" is an epic instrumental piece that depicts the tale of the Monkey King and his journey for redemption. You will find an ode to Iron Maiden and Running Wild with this track, as well as East Asian style musicality.

"I am the Monster" tells the story of a man who slowly becomes a monster because of his past. The lyrics were inspired by the story of Frankenstein's Monster, who was born without love and was abandoned by society after making a horrendous mistake. It was also inspired by the classic manga series, "Naoki Urasawa's Monster", which tells the tale of a Japanese brain surgeon who saves a boy, who happened to be a victim of post World War 2 experiments that led him to become a terrifying monster. Musical nods to Accept, Scorpions, Sanctuary, Warlord, and Dream Evil are combined into an electrifying epic that concludes our album.

For those who have supported us throughout the years, we humbly thank you with all our hearts.
