Track Name: White Wolves
Out from the black they stalk
Within the white they walk
They're here to rend and tear
To leave the bones stripped bare

Swarm of fangs and eyes
Snap down the jaws until it dies
Crimson blood flowing forth
Beautiful brutality of the North

The wind howls and wolves harmonise
Eyes fade as it dies
Carnage spread all around the place
Frozen terror on a lifeless face

Blood on the white snow
Gore on the ice floe
How the cold winds blow
White wolves
Down from the high hills
Out from the deep chills
In for the hard kill
White wolves

Thrashing forms bring it down
Sputtering scarlet, the lesser drowns
Throat ripped ragged and wide
The strong have lived and the weakling died

The butchering will continue on
Regurgitate entrails for the spawn
Masticate steaming viscera
Feast on the carcass, Nature's law

The wind howls and wolves harmonise
Eyes fade as it dies
Carnage spread all around the place
Frozen terror on a lifeless face

Blood on the white snow
Gore on the ice floe
How the cold winds blow
White wolves
Down from the high hills
Out from the deep chills
In for the hard kill
White wolves
Track Name: Wendigo Psychosis
Snow falls down
Upon the taiga and fields
Frozen rivers
Of the Canadian Shield

Winter has woken
And has brought starvation
Snowsqualls pound the forests
Famine and emaciation

Within my veins
Hunger screams
Evil in my brain
Cursing my dreams

I have to feed
It's inside me
Cannot fight the need
Manitou of gluttony

I am wendigo
Treading on bloody snow
Terror of the North
Demon come forth
I am wendigo
Your saviour, your foe
Blackened to the core
This is real, not folklore

Blood runs hot
Melting through the snow
Steam rises
Where the crimson flows

Cut through the flesh
Divide the meat
Those that I loved
Are those that I will eat

Within my veins
Hunger screams
Evil in my brain
Cursing my dreams

I have to feed
It's inside me
Cannot fight the need
Manitou of gluttony

I am wendigo
Treading on bloody snow
Terror of the North
Demon come forth
I am wendigo
Your saviour, your foe
Blackened to the core
This is real, not folklore

I see them dead
Within my head
My children and my wife
Their blood on my knife

I am wendigo
Treading on bloody snow
Terror of the North
Demon come forth
I am wendigo
Your saviour, your foe
Blackened to the core
This is real, not folklore

I am wendigo
I am wendigo

I am wendigo
Treading on bloody snow
I will devour their flesh
There will be no one left
Track Name: Cannibal Copse
Dank wood
Black wood
Grim fog clings to bark
A loss of all that's good
Covered by the dark

Limbs stretch through the cold
Trunks twisted and cruel
A thicket vile and old
A copse of silent ghouls

At midnight they stir
Branches transmute to spurs
Roots begin to shift
The treeline starts to drift

They glide on through the peat
Ghouls searching for meat
The scent of lilac on the breeze
As you are eaten by the trees

Your eyes freeze
Ripped to shreds by the trees
Your heart stops
Torn apart by the copse
Your life ends
As your limbs start to transcend
Your soul is lost
You have joined the cannibal copse

Dark wood
False wood
By the day the trees pretend
Hiding where they've stood
Branches reach and distend

Demons disguised by dark spells
Murdered men forced to rise
At night is when they dwell
They shift their shape, convert their guise

At midnight they stir
Branches transmute to spurs
Roots begin to shift
The treeline starts to drift

They glide through the peat
Ghouls searching for meat
The scent of lilac on the breeze
As you are eaten by the trees

Your eyes freeze
Ripped to shreds by the trees
Your heart stops
Torn apart by the copse
Your life ends
As your limbs start to transcend
Your soul is lost
You have joined the cannibal copse
Track Name: The Breath of the Arctic
The greatest peril of this life
One that entwines and defines
Every single thing we eat
Could rise and lead to our defeat
Once the soul is finally freed
Be it man or any beast
It will ascend up to the sky
Where it's free to live and fly

But

It can take revenge
Spirit death
It falls down from the sky
Avenge the theft

Up your spine
Gliding quick
Kissing your neck
The breath of the Arctic
Down your throat
Cold and quick
Stealing your life
The breath of the Arctic

Silent wolf or mighty bear
Their spirits gather in the air
One day you'll arise as well
To the realm where all souls dwell
The antlers of the caribou
Tusk of narwhal, orca too
We'll all become part of the breath
Become as one after our deaths

But

It can take revenge
Spirit death
It falls down from the sky
Avenge the theft

Up your spine
Gliding quick
Kissing your neck
The breath of the Arctic
Down your throat
Cold and quick
Stealing your life
The breath of the Arctic
Track Name: Womb of Shadows
A heart that's full of flames
Burning like fire, an inferno inside her
A womb that's full of shade
Churning like shadows, the darkness of their woe
Her faith is melting the snowfall
Prophet and priestess, evil does not rest
Preaching the words of her god
Breathing confusion, breeding illusions

God of fire
Lord of the light
Stoking his choir
Inferno rites
God of burning
Lord of the right
He is returning
Our hearts alight

A heart that's full of lies
She opens her mind, she opens her thighs
She's screaming up to the stars
Slithering tendrils, wet darkness spills
Breathing evil slides into the world
A horror outsider, the birth of true terror
A silent shadow brought onto the earth
Stalking the night time, killing you from behind

God of fire
Lord of the light
Stoking his choir
Inferno rites
God of burning
Lord of the right
He is returning
Our hearts alight

Womb of shadows
Womb of shadows
Track Name: Ice
Men live and then men die
We bleed and we will cry
The earth gorged on the dead
So simple this endless dread

We all end up in the ground
No soul to rise or to go down
No one to remember you
Await the cold hand of doom

Down on me
Down on you
Down through me
Down through you
End of me
End of you
End of all
Ice will fall

Down on me
Down on you
Down through me
Down through you
End of me
End of you
End of all
Ice will fall

Ice will fall

Hills crumble and seas will dry
Doves fall and ravens fly
Blood thins within the veins
Words change and meaning wanes

Lower your eyes to the ground
Forget the sight and sound
Flames burn and we are bred
Ice melts and we are dead

Down on me
Down on you
Down through me
Down through you
End of me
End of you
End of all
Ice will fall

Down on me
Down on you
Down through me
Down through you
End of me
End of you
End of all
Ice will fall

Fall
Track Name: Les Serpents de Dieu
Beneath a Northern moon
Snakes coil in the icy frost
Their light's returning soon
French Catholicism no longer lost

All that's English will forever rot
Impaled on the sword of Christ
Under the scales of their God
Holy serpents of a Christian zeitgeist

Your souls, they will steal
Strangling coils are so very real
Your blood and spirit, they will take
Now held in the heart of the snake

Les Serpents de Dieu
Lances crachant du feu
Les Serpents du Ciel
Ils sont universels

Over a Northern sun
Serpents basking in the light of the lord
Their fangs are dripping blood
Pledge dedication to an idol of gore

One of 13 and one that shines
Stand alone upon the graves of the old
Inject the venom and leave 12 behind
Masquerading copper for the gleam of gold

Your souls, they will steal
Strangling coils are so very real
Your blood and spirit, they will take
Now held in the heart of the snake

Les Serpents de Dieu
Lances crachant du feu
Les Serpents du Ciel
Ils sont universels

Empty eyes gazing up at their cross
An icon dressed in sorrow and lies
A sword thrust so deep in the heart
Lilies trampled by the boot stamps of time

Icy shores where the river narrows
A fortress stands where the Angles fall
Cloistered here under their king's watch
Locked within their own prison walls

Les Serpents de Dieu
Lances crachant du feu
Les Serpents du Ciel
Ils sont universels
Track Name: Crown of Nihilism
Slowly take it apart
Inconsistancies in the art
Blind in vision, blind in mind
Look for answers you'll never find

What do you see in the sky?
You'll never discover how and why
You're a cage of pain and meat
Grasping for knowledge you'll never reach

And his ghost reached up
Placed on my head the crown of nihilism
Alone on Earth
Crowned the king of solipsism
But there are no ghosts
No one wears the crown of nihilism
Nothing has any worth
Empty spheres of solipsism

A sign of strength in my heart
Symbols and words that never fall apart
Minute by minute, hour by hour
A weakling seizing the will to power

I know you but you can't know me
My hands build the shapes you'll never see
You tremble as you grasp the air
Your eyes betray a mouth that says that you don't care

And his ghost reached up
Placed on my head the crown of nihilism
Alone on Earth
Crowned the king of solipsism
But there are no ghosts
No one wears the crown of nihilism
Nothing has any worth
Empty spheres of solipsism

Your mind is empty, yes, it's plain to see
But all stories end, yes even you and me
For you see, little girl
Inside your head is the entire world

The Earth as you think that it should exist
Is nothing but a void of emptiness
I know you know as you search your head
God is dead, yes, your God is dead

And his ghost reached up
Placed on my head the crown of nihilism
Alone on Earth
Crowned the king of solipsism
But there are no ghosts
No one wears the crown of nihilism
Nothing has any worth
Empty spheres of solipsism

Nihilism
Solipsism
Nihilism
Solipsism
Track Name: The Snow That Covers My Grave
It is snowing inside my mind
Crystals fall through a slowing of time
And the moon is full this night
Shining down on all in sight
Memories drift from another life
And along with pain they arrive

It's dark like night inside my mind
The tears flow from a glacier inside
And they freeze upon my face
Icicles slice into place
Memories come like a chorus of knives
Feel it in my heart, see it in my eyes

If I die down here
In due course
Send me home
To the North
I can't rest here
Bring me home
My icy grave
Bury me in snow

Snow is lying inside my soul
It buries me deep, it buries me whole
Within the dark of night
All is draped in white
Shining sheets gleam under the stars
And when I reach up it doesn't seem so far

I am dying inside my soul
Time has stopped by the power of cold
The stars fall from the sky
I slowly cease to cry
Then my last breath is crushed by this ice
Forgotten by all, forgotten by time

When I die down here
All I gave
Send me home
North of the waves
I won't stay here
A ghost enslaved
Bury me in beauty
The snow that covers my grave

Your tears lost in the snow that covers my grave
Your tears lost in the snow that covers my grave
Track Name: Amarok
Weakling, fool
A life of mistakes
Snowsquall, whiteout
Your hope breaks

Taiga, forest
Run to see the glow
Hunter, hunted
Warmth you'll never know

And then I'm on you
And you know you're dead
My teeth shredding your flesh
You struggle in the white and red

You knew I was out here
Still you left on your own
Now you're dying all the same
I will always hunt alone

I am the wolf god of the true north
Roaming the tundra, a natural force
I am the lone wolf who thins the flock
Hunting the foolish, I am Amarok

Horror, wolf god
A feeble attempt to fight
Terror, reaper
Crushed under my might

Darkness, blizzard
This is what you chose
Broken, bleeding
This is how it goes

And then I'm on you
And you know you're dead
My teeth shredding your flesh
You struggle in the white and red

You knew I was out here
Still you left on your own
Now you're dying all the same
I will always hunt alone

I am the wolf god of the true north
Roaming the tundra, a natural force
I am the lone wolf who thins the flock
Hunting the foolish, I am Amarok

I am Amarok
