Track Name: Frost-Conquered Wastelands (Intro)
None - instrumental intro
Track Name: Nightmare Of A Nocturnal Winterstorm
Wandering... ...through the unending night
The darkened horizon... ... bears a fateful sign
Vanishing stars... ... spend their last fading light
In the shadows above... ... where the raven cries

Restless my journey... ...as the years passed by
Once inspired by visions... ...now I´m losing my sight
Shades distort my dreams... ... deep sorrows in mind
A nightmare of winterstorm ´s arrived

Claws of frost embrace me
As I stumble through the ice
A chilling wind freezes my thoughts
Can no one hear my cries?

(The) Colours of life are fading
Through the winter´s might
My hope begins to wither (away)
Into the void of the endless night

Hopelessness... gazing to the sky...
Feel the emptiness...growing deep... inside...

Slowly I´m falling down... ...to the ground
Starving by frost... ...and covered by snow
I bitterly feel that my fate will unfold
In a nightmare ...of a nocturnal ...winterstorm...
Track Name: Loyal To The Crown Of Frost
Feel... a shadow falls upon these times
Revealed... the darkest hours of our kind
See... the deceitful fall from grace
But we... ´ll keep our ideals ´till the fi-nal-of-our-days!

Even if all our faith seems to be gone
There´s no surrender -
we do... what-has-to-be-done!

Endless - wastelands - we have crossed
Unnamed: the woes - this oath did cost
Visions may shatter and hope might be lost
We are! Loyal! To the Crown of Frost!!

Your fate... will unfold to thee
The gates... open when your heart is pure-and-your-soul-free!

Giant - landscapes - we have to cross
Unkown: the price - this creed will cost
Let everything wither and hope to be lost
We stay! Loyal! To the Crown of Frost!!

Retained... this spirit is recalled
To reign... for ever ´till the stars will fall!
Believe... in times of triumph and decay
To see... who's gained his ends on the fi-nal-of-our-days!
Track Name: Demons Of Mist
Midnight...veils of mist
Start to rise...on a forsaken place...
Inmidst the forest's ghastly glades...
Does the curse unfold a-gain...

The path...buried by ghostly fog...
Vanishs before his eyes...
In the shadows he goes astray
Beholds the glimmering spectral lights...
...within... the glowing formless mist...
Dreadful figures begin to shape...
Evil prowls through the night...
Crawling demons hide in the shades...

...hear... them whispering in the wind...
...see... them lurking in the dark...
...feel... their breath in the haze...

(The) Moon's... circling disc
On the rise... over this profaned place...
Where on the forest's ghastly glades...
Obsessed evil spirits dwell...

There he stands ...frigthened... and starved...
Surrounded by hungry mist...
Freezing eyes dance in the wind
Haunting shadows move and twist

...They came with the mist...

Their fangs grasped his soul... on a forsaken place
His fearful screams... vanished in the haze
With the next fall of night ...on a ghastly glade
...veils of mist rise again... another demonheart awakes...

...They came with the mist...
Track Name: Hours In Silence
None - instrumental
Track Name: Riders At The Gates Of Dawn
Daylight fades with the weakened sun
Black shades repel the dying light
Its bloodred shine banishes them
'till the rise of the awakening night

Fallen in a restless sleep...fear grows...inside
Horrors of a nefarious past seem to twist ...his mind
Nightmares of their screams for help when he left them ...to die
Nameless terror takes his breath as he hears them ...riding on!

...Riding on!
...(he) hears them riding ...through the gates of dawn

Desperate writhing - no escape
Hateful eyes glow in the night
Their voices echo in the dark
Calling for vengeance as they ride

Tortured by this haunting dream he feels madness ...arise
His remorse is way too late as he breaks down ...to cry
Unfaithful and weak he broke his oath - cold gazed his eyes
Now's the time when the traitor has to face...his infamous lies!

...His lies!

Frozen eyes in (an) unlit glare
Silent the wraiths stand aside
Their cold blades' steel gleams merciless
He knows they've come to take his ...life!

The traitor's howling scream yelled painful through ...this fateful night
The people of his village found him dead ...at first morning light
The rumours tell from rider's ghosts taking revenge ...when darkness falls
But all unfaithful hearts still see them riding in ...the setting dawn!
A golden rising sun greets the horsemen on ...a mountainside
Now their ban is broken and their hearts ...are shining bright
Old legends tell their spirits rose to enter ...dead warrior's hall
But all unfaithful hearts still hear their screams ...when darkness ...falls!
Track Name: Beneath A Cold Horizons Moon
Prologue:
...Calling in winds...
...hear winter claims...a bitter heart...
...see torches' light...
flickering...where cold icestorms blow...
...fire's shine reveals...
...his forsaken path in the vastelands...
...and his nightmare...
...beneath a cold horizon's moon...


Bitterness... fills his thoughts... with sorrow and pain
Merciless... the storm won't grant him... oblivion
Shivering... sees a figure... inmidst... the haze
Faceless... the shadow of the man - an image... of himself!

Struggling... the hardest of all battles within...
Blazing... his burning hope in agony's flames
Freezing... visions starve in winds of despair
Blackening... the moon reaches its to - tal eclipse!

Despairing... hopelessness echoes in his mind...
Relentless... the blizzard descends to take his life
Falling... grief and dejection have shattered his soul
Fading... feels his spirit vanish into death god's hall!


Epilogue:
...Soaring in winds...
...a morning breeze took his soul apart...
...whispering winds...
...tell how winter claimed a bitter heart...

...how winter claimed... a bitter heart...
