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: Death Dealer
Born from the flesh of above and below
Sanctuary only in name
When the minions of evil from hell overflow
Can no one extinguish the flame?

Ripped from the void, imprisoned in stone
The bonds destroyed, tormenting the throne

Nightmares abound
Deep underground
Out of the hellfire and into our town
An evil awakened that none can control
Lord of destruction, reaper of souls

Descent into darkness; the townsfolk ensnared
Defiled and devoured their souls
The devil, the demon, the heart of despair
Shall pay for the lives he once stole
Track Name: Zero Hour
Cascading into the unknown
Now a soul ripped apart from my shell and my heart
I'm coming back but not alone
Hear the cries of the lost, paid the ultimate cost
to linger here, detached for far too long

The countdown starts
Reaching zero hour,
will I see you now?
across the dark, reaching out
Blindly I’m searching for you

The day they buried you away
When they severed the line was your soul left behind?
I was possessed; I had to know
Both bewitched and bereft, could I save what was left?
Attached the wires, dove in all alone

The countdown starts
Reaching zero hour,
will I see you now?
across the dark, reaching out
Screaming in silence I,
am torn apart
Almost zero hour
should I just let go
A sacrifice for your hand reaching mine

I don’t recall...
Is it worth returning after all?
I’m ready to fall
Reaching out, reaching out
Track Name: Tormentor
Ripping the mantle, extracting the vein, the insatiable maw burrows deeper again
Feel the crack of the rock, hear it shudder with pain, this relentless machine built on capital gain
Now is failing, failing, forsaking the call of its master’s commands
And desiring, craving, the iron the engine demands

Tormentor
Ripping with teeth made of steel
Tormentor
The blood of the rock soon revealed

They look to the sky, across a dark ocean it roams
Expanding in size, too quickly it reaches their homes

The shell of the planet is left to decay as the ground and its people are eaten away
Through rock and through mud, with oil and blood, destroyer of planets devours its prey
Now it’s crushing, tearing, destroying all life with titanium hands
And desiring, craving, the iron the engine demands

Waiting for the end (drill, kill)
Melted to slag for the fires burning
Nothing to defend (drill, kill)
Nothing will remain

Tormentor
Ripping with teeth made of steel
Tormentor
The blood of the rock soon revealed
Tormentor
Slashing into the unknown
Tormentor
Harvesting life from the stone
Track Name: Burn it Down (With Fire) Feat. Brittney Slayes
We found her naked, convulsing in a temple of sin!
With entrails and wolf tails and animal skin.
Divination, desecration of the laws of our Lord,
A harlot of the devil’s horde! She is the

Heart of the curse that has fallowed the land
But fate is now ours to command, we’ve got to

(Burn it down! Burn it down!) with fire!
(Burn it down! Burn it down!) with fire!
Fire! Throw her to the cleansing pyre!
Drink in her screams as the flesh melts away,
Satan will claim her today!

“Fools! You Fools! My master is near!
Weep to your god as you cower in fear!
Flesh melts away but my powers remain
By fire you all shall be slain! All your

Temples, your houses, the children you’ve raised
All shall succumb to the blaze! Now I will”

(Burn it down! Burn it down!) with fire!
(Burn it down! Burn it down!) with fire!
Fire! Growing in a raging pyre!
Higher and higher, swallowed by the cursed hellfire!
Feast on your souls as your bodies decay,
The master of sorrows will steal you away!

(Burn it down! Burn it down!) with fire!
(Burn it down! Burn it down!) with fire!
Fire! Growing in a raging pyre!
Higher and higher, swallowed by the cursed hellfire!
Relish your screams as your bodies decay,
Satan, my master, will claim you today!
Track Name: Figaro
A broken crown,
lost beneath the ruins of the sands
I hear them calling out my name,
“hero of the land”

Among the torment war can bring,
My name they still commend
But those deserving more than I,
simply call my name as friend

Oh, this broken world we will defend

Stand, stand, up from the sand
No absolution with weapon in hand

Sealed away for a thousand years
The magi knew that the power to fear
Is our own, sealed in stone,
awaiting the hero to conquer the throne

Feel the power now returning
From the towns and cities burning
Make a stand against the empire
Western winds whip up a wildfire

Sealed strong in magic armor
No force was thought could harm her
The spell of trance now broken
She joins the call to

Stand, stand, weapon in hand
Power of ages within our command

Sealed away for a thousand years
Break the spell and the myth reappears
in control, power of old,
exposing the evil for all to behold

This broken world,
scattered to the winds of disarray
This shattered land will be reborn,
we will never back away
Hand in hand, one by one,
stand together, come what may
There is dark before the dawn,
and we have found where we belong,
Yearning for the break of day

In this land of blood and war
Hope will make us strive for more
Enslaved nevermore
Hold high the names who braved
the fire and sword
Through a land reforged
The magic destroyed, dispelled to the void
We ride the winds of change
And say a prayer for better days

Throne and the sword
Now restored
May he reign
forevermore!
Track Name: Brothers of Cain
Where are my manners? We haven’t been introduced!
I seem to have compelled the dungeon guard to cut us loose
And what a splendid party! You’re having so much fun!
It seems we made it right on time; the ball has just begun

No need to make a racket, and please stay in your seats
I promise to be swift; you see my men are quite discreet
Just a tiny favor, I don’t mean to be bold
But empty out your pockets ‘cause we’re taking all your gold!

Hush dear, for there is no reason to fear
If you’ll lend me your jewels and follow my rules
Soon we will all disappear

Last night we slept in chains
Tonight we drink champagne!
Sing to our fame! Remember our name!
We are the Brothers of Cain!

Now I know just what you’re thinking, let’s cut right to the chase
For if you take that sword out I will shoot you in the face!
There’s no need to be violent, no, that simply will not do!
Let’s all just keep our heads or else I’ll steal your women too!

We’re having such a blast! The time has quickly passed
I’d love to stay and party but I fear we’re fading fast
That lightly guarded galleon in the harbor should suffice
So thank you all, ‘twas quite a ball, and now we say goodnight!

Hush dear, you’ll notice I’m quite cavalier
Ask your man to sit still until I’ve had my fill
Of most of his flagon of beer

Last night we slept in chains
Tonight we toast our fame!
Remember our name, I’ll say it again,
We are the Brothers of Cain!

Tonight you’re bound and gagged,
Now raise the blackened flag!
Sing to our fame! Remember our name!
We are the brothers of cain!
Track Name: Reaper's Hourglass
Sands of time
falling down
Fighting to turn it upside down

Your time has come
Said the spectre unto me
But these shackles of hate
Won’t set me free

The pact was sealed
One last chance to set things right
Trade my soul for sand
Set my path alight

Grains of sand
hold your ground
Now to the glass forever bound

Within my shell reborn

There will be
Nothing left of me
It’s the price I pay to pull you under
Broken free
from your heresy
As you drown under the sand

Carry your debt
Like the cross around your neck
Conceal your guilt
And keep your eyes in check

Gather your men
Fortify your gilded walls
No price you pay
Can stop me now

Stone by stone
Watch you fall
Now is the time I reap it all

The glass is slowly drained
Inside my soul contained
Before the last grain falls
My sword will find them all

There will be
Nothing left of me
It’s the price I pay to pull you under
Wait and see
What you’ve done to me
I will hear no words of clemency
Broken free
from your heresy
As you drown under the sand
Track Name: Chasing Shadows
Slings and arrows come
Wish to do me harm
Stand and shield away

With your shadow gone
Pierce’d by the dawn
Lost in disarray

Stand by my side, in the shelter you provide
With such a blinding light,
The darkness opened wide

You are falling from the sky
Burning light that blinds my eye
Fading far away, away
Chasing shadows from the past
Shine so bright you’d never last
Longing you to stay
As I watch you fade away

A restless mind possessed
Lamenting your distress
Ceasing to obey

Play the paragon
Forever soldier on
Bury the decay
Track Name: The Nameless Tomb
Paid in gold
And a key to break the hold
Of the ancient seal; the entrance to the tomb

Find the fabled sword
In the chambers unexplored
But beware the lures that lead men to their doom

Carved in stone
Are the answers to questions unknown
Dust and bone,
And the treasure of the ancient curse’d throne

Now
Strike a torch and step with care
Defy the curses if you dare
As you break the seal and enter the trial of the tomb
As the doorway closes fast
Pray the light you bear will last
Through the silver halls that shine like the light of the moon

The wealth of countless lords
Line the halls within this hoard
But a madness takes you if you dare to steal - look out!

Read the signs
Find the traps and their designs
And the safest path will surely be revealed

Find your way
Through illusions that lead men astray
Don’t delay
As the ground beneath you cracks and falls away

Now
Strike a torch and step with care
Defy the curses if you dare
Keep your wits about you; trapped in the trial of the tomb
The only one in here alive
The only aim is to survive
Keep a steady hand; The wrong move will lead to your doom
Track Name: The Gatekeeper
We are the rats beneath your street
The sound that fills your dreams
We will survive where others die
With a will to carry on
The ones swept up and tossed away
The refuse of the cabaret
You think your battle’s won
But we’re still fighting on and on and on

A fool that prays for it to end
The damage you yourself began

You - You “made” us
You hate us
You scorn us time and again
Now fear us
Now hear us
Your time is at an end
Come closer, this secret
Is just for us my friend
We’re fighters, survivors
We’ll fight you to the end

You teach the blind to bend the knee
Bewitched by golden dreams
Wear your disguise and spin your lies
They’ll never see the fangs you hide

Behind the curtain take their life
Another notch upon your knife
You deem your castle strong
But the charge continues on and on and on

You think you own this common ground?
We’re strong together; we will tear you down because
