about

Lords of the Trident Madison, Wisconsin

Lords of the Trident is the most METAL band on earth. Their metal's so pure that only diamonds can scratch it, and usually the diamonds are the ones that end up getting hurt in the end. Their amps are so loud, Manowar knocked on their door and asked them to "please turn down". ... more

Track Name: Skyforce
Flying like a thunderbolt
the missiles giving chase
the canyon lying dead ahead
there is no time to waste

his flames ignite the jet black sky
a bogey on his six
the throttle on his jet set high
it's how he gets his fix

The white hot lead, and missile fire
they'll save the world, and take you higher

Burning through the sky
sound the battle cry
Unloading
Exploding

Flying through the night
ready for a fight
jets shrieking
heat-seeking

Emerging like a phantom jet
the saviors of the world
the evil men will not forget
how the wicked plan unfurled

they fight to save the future
with their supersonic speed
now evil's in a tailspin
they're out to make them bleed

The white hot lead, and missile fire
they'll save the world, and take you higher

(Chorus)

Skyforce, without fear they will fight to the end
Skyforce, peace and justice they will defend
Skyforce, for the future the evil must die
Skyforce, for the future they take to the sky
Track Name: Face of the Enemy
Had to save ‘em or they’d end up dead
instead I wake up in a hospital bed
I feel the pain
left from the fire

My face in bandages, skin feels tight
I got a feeling that something ain’t right
Hold back the scream
A stranger in the mirror

You gotta fight
Stay outta sight
Don’t you know that you’re a wanted man?
You gotta live
you can’t forgive
All you can give
Is a promise that you’ll find him as fast as you can

Under the knife
A soul against the technology
Fight for your life
You’ve got the face of the enemy

I know the face staring back at me
wanted for murder in the first degree
I hear the boots
walking down the hall

make my escape and the hunt begins
there’s out to find me; I’m out to find him
no alibi
it’s do or die

Under the knife
More than mistaken identity
Fight for your life
You’ve got the face of the enemy
Track Name: Chains on Fire
In the dragon's den
he found the ring of magic fire
and everything he touched
was consumed with his desire

flammable or not
the curse incinerates at will
with a hunger unrestrained

the firestorm
an evil conflagration
the burning steel
will break the seal

Woah, with the chains on fire
and the fires of metal will burn
Woah, with the chains on fire / we're the chains on fire
we're fighting/lighting our way with the chains on fire

As his power grew
the many kings tried to obtain
the secret of his blaze
to expand their own domain

with resounding force
the curse imprisoned now by chains
the warriors believed

the firestorm
the embers of cremation
the burning chains
all that remains

Woah, with the chains on fire
and the fires of metal will burn
Woah, with the chains on fire / we're the chains on fire
we're fighting/lighting our way with the chains on fire
Track Name: Fighting for Love
With every step you take
my heart begins to ache
My only weakness is longing for you

With every chance that slips
between my fingertips
you've got defenses that I will break through

Don't start behaving
Like I don't know how to feed your craving
you've got a battle, and the battle is me

Fighting for love
Fighting for love
and when the weight of the world's got you down
You're fighting for love

Fighting for love
Fighting for love
and when the fear is always around
You're fighting for love

I feel your racing heart
although we're miles apart
I will keep chasing you till the end

I almost see your face
and feel your sweet embrace
is this so hard for you to comprehend?

Don't start behaving
Like I don't know how to feed your craving
you've got a battle, and that battle is me

Oh, you’re Fighting for Love
Fighting for love
On your love is what I depend
You're fighting for love

Fighting for love
Fighting for love
and your honor is what I defend
You're fighting for love

Fighting for love
Fighting for love
And I will follow the beat of your heart
You're fighting for love

Fighting for love
Fighting for love
even though we are miles apart
You're fighting for love

Yeah, you’re fighting for love

Yes you’re fighting for love, for love
For love, for love, yeah, fighting for love
Oh don’t be afraid, baby hold out your hand
You are my girl, and I am your man
I’ll fight for you love, I’ll die for your love
for love, for love, yeah, for love
Track Name: Legions of Hypocrisy
Decide your side
you'll find that in your anger you are not alone
they're blind, a closed mind
and they prey upon the weak who would not stand up and speak
perched on their hollow throne
of lies

we will stand up and fight
we are taking back the night
be cautious; know his eyes are watching
be steady with your blade
we are mounting a crusade
we will destroy the king of shadows

unleash the burning sword
to fight the dark
our home will be restored
we ride! for glory we will

fight, tonight
we stand against the legions of hypocrisy
we stand, for our land
and charge against the beast, all of hell we will release
tonight the shadow king
must die

we will stand up and fight
we are taking back the night
be cautious; know his eyes are watching
be steady with your blade
we are mounting a crusade
we will destroy the king of shadows

unleash the burning sword
to fight the dark
our home will be restored
we ride! for glory we will
Fight!
Track Name: The Metal Sea
You've all heard the whispers,
and the tales men tell,
of a ship made of iron,
and a crew of the demons from hell

Sailing under the moonlight
striking fear wherever they might
if I told you their captain was I
you'd probably drop dead from fright

fight and die
is a motto tattooed to our skin
say goodbye
when you see the black flag with a grin
then the roar of the cannons begin

With a high, high, ho
With a high, high, hee
we'll get drunk and we'll pillage together
as we're sailing the metal sea

With a high, high, ho
With a high, high, hee
The treasure is ours, forever
as we're sailing the metal sea

We'll keelhaul the traitors
in the dead of night
to send men to Davey Jones
is a prime delight

They will run from our cutlass
we'll leave no soul be
So drop all your booty and run
it's a guarantee

fight and die
is a motto tattooed to our skin
say goodbye
when you see the black flag with a grin
then the roar of the cannons begin

With a high, high, ho
With a high, high, hee
we'll get drunk and we'll pillage together
as we're sailing the metal sea

With a high, high, ho
With a high, high, hee
The treasure is ours, forever
as we're sailing the metal sea

Men! Lift up your swords!
And fight for the Lords!
We live, we fight, we die!
Men! Our treasure awaits!
So break down the gates!
When you see the black flag with a grin
Then the roar of the cannons begin!
Track Name: Foggy Harbor Town
A drive through the mist
down a lonely trail
a shortcut, a mistake, lost
across the veil

From out of the fog
Came the demon wail
A town up ahead, the forest you fled
will daylight ever prevail?

Run! Towards the light! They can smell your...
Blood! Through the night! And the mist keeps growing...

They are evil, take your flight
from the mists that curse the night
find a shelter, dodge their sight
there are shadows all around

Numbers growing, from the mist
Tell yourself they don’t exist
Feel the cold grip on your wrist
in the foggy harbor town

You dash through the streets
and search for an open door
a flash and the street is alight
and the thunder roars

A second of light
confirming your greatest fear
a moment to flee, but up from the sea
the terror is already here

(prechorus, chorus)

You can try to close your eyes
still the evil will arise
You’ll lose your mind

make their way up from the shore
feel them scratching at the door
you’re out of time
Track Name: Stranded
All alone in the darkness
They left you for dead
A howl cuts through the midnight air
chasing you; they smell the trail you've bled

the insatiable hunger
to stay alive
your only hope is the feeling of fear
wounded, hunted, fighting to survive

(keep running, keep running) You've got to try
but you're fighting to breathe
you've got the vengeance on your side

(keep running, keep running) you were left to die
you hear the call of the wolf
pulse is racing, pack is chasing you

Whooaaaa
covered in battle scars
whoaaaaa
run away, run away

redemption lies afar, it's a
full moon; a fight or flight
take your chances running from the night

In the serpentine forest
stranded and bare
hell bent to escape alive
fate has destined you alone were spared

in the mind of the monsters
you're gonna die
a last chance to escape your fate
take the jump and death you will deny
Track Name: Beauty of the Blade
In the forest of madness
he will challenge his fate
and the angels above him,
for his soul they await

For the sake of the one he has loved
he will fight to the death
from the shadows, the glint of a sword
makes him steady his breath

forced to kill, forced to fight, not gonna die tonight
fight to live, the battle cry, he lets the sword decide,

The beauty of the blade
a deadly serenade
and all the souls he paid to
the beauty of the blade

Stepping out of the shadows
they stand ready to fight
very soon, the clash of cold steel
breaks the silence of the night

clears his mind of distraction
never thinking to run
he will send them to the devil himself
for the deeds they has done

forced to kill, forced to fight, not gonna die tonight
the fear subsides, the fates collide, he lets the sword decide,

The beauty of the blade
a bloody masquerade
and all the souls he paid
to the beauty...the beauty....
he'll never break, too much at stake, tonight,
yes, he grips his blade, for his last crusade, tonight

fighting destiny,
fate won't take hold of me

The beauty of the blade
a bloody masquerade
and all the souls he paid
to the beauty...the beauty....
he'll never break, too much at stake, tonight,
he grips his blade, for his last crusade, tonight
Track Name: The Enforcer
The souls that fall
to neither heaven nor hell
must prove their worth
to escape the spell

sinner or saint
honor or pride
their final resting place
he will decide

he will not hear
your feeble plea
pick up your weapon is his one decree

all the legions standing tall
The enforcer is the judge of all
make your way towards the gates
The enforcer, he awaits!

purification
of soul and steel
sin and salvation
the past revealed

the holy fire
readies you for the fight
to heaven’s gates
you will ride tonight

(prechorus, chorus)

As you approach, there’s a burning desire
to meet your maker and escape the fire
the pain is great, almost more than you can stand
the sword is ready in your steady hand

All temptation you repel
The enforcer holds the keys to hell
write your name in blood and sweat
the enforcer is your final threat
Track Name: Followers of Set
Hypnotized by the eyes
of the serpent’s endless stare
to the temple of set
to the snake’s eternal lair

Feel the venom and fire
as you begin to lose your mind
constricting your thoughts
you will leave your will behind

Tearing out your heart
entombed for an eternity
you must pay your debt
to the followers of set

A shadow in the dark
as you slither through the night
you feel the fear in your prey
as you ready for the bite

Another soul to place
on the altar made of gold
losing your regret
as your blood is turning cold

feel the sharpened fang
piercing through your memory
a gift you can’t forget
from the followers of set

sinister forked tongue
hisses secrets in your ear
lost in a trance
and your past will disappear

the rituals commence
as you shed your wretched skin
the poison enters your veins
the metamorphosis begins

mummify your corpse
chained to this immortal tomb
died to pay your debt
to the followers of set
Track Name: Wicked Touch
You had me drinking your poison
you had the devil’s touch
you had me down on my knees baby
you always made me your crutch

No more deception!
I’ve had enough of your lies
you always played me for the fool, baby
you had me hypnotized

You’ve got the moves, your wicked...t-t-t-t-t-touch
I lost control from your wicked...t-t-t-t-t-touch

Woah...you had me down on the floor
Woah...and I was begging for more
(Take. No. More) NO MORE!!
(Take. No. More) NO MORE!!

(Woah) Well I’ve packed my bags baby
(Woah) Yeah you had me in chains
(Woah) Had enough of you honey
(Woah) Sick of playing these games

Well it was 3 in the morning
Pounding away at the door (oh no!)
Well I can see you’re no good for me baby
‘cause I was ready for more

no more rejection!
I’ve breaking out of this cage
I was a hostage of your love baby
but now I’m turning the page

You’ve got the moves, your wicked...t-t-t-t-t-touch
I lost control from your wicked...t-t-t-t-t-touch

When I tried to break away
you sprang your trap
now I know your wicked ways
I’m not coming back

(Take. No. More) NO MORE!!
(Take. No. More) NO MORE!!

(Woah) Well I’ve packed my bags baby
(Woah) Yeah you had me in chains
(Woah) Had enough of you honey
(Woah) Sick of playing these games

Well I’ve turned my back baby
(Woah) Yeah I’ve broken the chains
(Woah) You’re no good for me baby
(Woah) Sick of playing these games
Track Name: Man/Machine
My light, slowly fading
From mortal coil torn
But why, I am rescued,
and reborn

Cover my useless body
replace my bleeding brain
there's nothing left and somehow
I remain

My broken hands replaced with steel (back from oblivion)
Yet through these sensors I don't feel (cross into digital)
I'll learn to live again without the pain
but it will never be the same

I am more than a man (from the darkness, into light)
forsaken once my life began (Soul discarded, blackened sight)

Full power hits the system
Fuels my efficient mind
No time to seek out answers undefined

I can't remember dreaming
of things I’ll never be
With filtered thoughts
I purge these memories

I analyze what still remains (my shattered memories)
yet no emotion I retain (unchained from empathy)
exist without the warmth of humankind
alone I question my design

I am more than a man (from the darkness, into light)
forsaken once my life began (Soul discarded, blackened sight)
watching the world behind a screen
I am a man and a machine (steel frame; loss of feeling; black and white)
