Track Name: PROSPERO BURNS
Oh, what a terrible feast you have prepared today
A table groaning with exquisite food
Betrayal, deceit, anger, fear and pain
This is a fratricidal war

Death rejoices, flying over the battlefield
Today she is the winner here
I deny to believe
This is the end of everything

You’ve burned my home!
With my faith and hope
In hands of the Traitor
You are just a pawn!

You’ve lost, he won!
Blood-soaked dawn shall come!
Because of your blindness
Prospero is gone!

Who gave you the right to kill my sons?
You really think our father would want it?
And all these deaths are on your hands
You are not my brother

Take a look at those black burning spires
Pyramids of glass, destroyed by the fire
I swear one day I will repay you
Shells, bombs, blood and sorrow
Falling from the skies, killing innocent souls
It’s time to put an end to this

You’ve burned my home!
With my faith and hope
In hands of the Traitor
You are just a pawn!

You’ve lost, he won!
Blood-soaked dawn shall come!
Because of your blindness
Prospero is gone!

To wolves I vow
For killing my world
Revenge will be taken
And Fenris shall fall

My home! My home!
I did nothing wrong!
You gave me no choice
We are leaving this world!

My name is Magnus the Red
And I command to all who is still up
Leave your fight and retreat to Photep
I am about to teleport us

All, who took the innocent lives
I conjure at their peril
I foresee oblivion
To all, who drunk blood of brothers

For thousands of dead sons
And the world destroyed by fire
You shall face your punishment
Remember this forever

The hour of black happiness shall come
When your own world ignites
You are going to curse the day
When you set Prospero on fire
Track Name: WELCOME TO SORTIARIUS, PLANET OF THE SORCERERS (ft. Silent Generation)
Death – is the only word that comes to my head
In attempt to describe this place
A black desert with broken reality
And time erased
There is so much to reveal and learn from here
I see the light, but it’s unclear
I feel the warp is overtaking me
It whispers evil in my ears

Chaos!
I always knew there is more to feel
Take us!
It’s not our choice, but our will

Chaos! [2x]


Eternal night
In broad daylight
Is it what has been promised to us?

We abandoned the light
And for all those dark gifts
You sold the souls of your sons?


Let the shimmering sands
Resonate in your ears forever
As the painful reminder
Of alma mater we will never see

Forget the Prospero
And welcome to the Sortiarius
Forget the Prospero
This is our home now
Forget the Prospero
And welcome to the Planet of the Sorcerers
Forget the Prospero
Our past is gone now

Now behold the raining blood
These drops will represent us
In the vicious crusade that
Will make them suffer!
So now we have a whole eternity
For all of us to find the truth
Time on this planet is just a formality
That I understood

Watch me explore this great arcanum
Assuming control of this grotesque beast
Forget everything
You know about the nature’s laws
And follow the ways
Of our new Gods


Those horrific place
Will never become our new home
For we deserve better


Let the shimmering sands
Resonate in your ears forever
As the painful reminder
Of alma mater we will never see

Forget the Prospero
And welcome to the Sortiarius
Forget the Prospero
This is our home now
Forget the Prospero
And welcome to the Planet of the Sorcerers
Forget the Prospero
Our past is gone now


Wait,
It’s not too late
Please, take a look back
And remember the Tizca’s sacred flames
Scent of the wind and the raven’s last call
I beg you, try to recreate these memories in your head
Love of the sun, kiss of it’s warmth
A calm of studying the mysterious runes
Dreams of light, goodness and greatness
Of will to live and feel a proud
Of glorious days, of kings and heroes
Of eternal peace without fear and mourn
Not the slavery, death and rot
Please, don’t!

The dead should not fight for the living
The damned have no reasons to care
I beg you, let us go
Just leave, and let us die
Track Name: PAVONI (ft. Shokran)
Arise, the war is about to begin
And where is the war, there is a perspective to win it
So march again until you reach the Hell
And if required - even further
Further! [3x]

Praise the another chance to fight for what’s yours
And take revenge for what once was
Through the disasters and all the bad omens
You were, You are and always will
Be my sons


We had to endure so much pain
And it wasn’t just to say “no” to revenge
I swear to drown the Wolves in their own boiled blood
I will find no peace as long as Fenris stands
All those restless nights
And days full of sin
Will return to wolfen offender
In full!
The dashing lightning will impale them
From the skies that you shall tear apart
In the name of us and vengeance
Which will bring us peace


Arise, the war is about to begin
And where is the war, there is a perspective to win it
So march again until you reach the Hell
And if required - even further
Further [3x]
Till’ we die

Arise, my sons, arise
They fear and feel their demise
Our rage lights up the skies
Arise my sons and avenge
Our home
Our everything what we lost
Track Name: RED CYCLOPS (ft. Obscure of Acacia)
Now I can see the sun
It doesn't fade away anymore
I wish I could have it all at the moment
When my beloved ones brought to me a torment
Of realizing the time
Me and my sons wasted for these monsters
And their false God

Their Emperor-God

The truth is always on the surface,
No need to dig so deep for it
Just listen to the voices of wisdom
As the Crimson King did! (x2)

Blame your filthy dogs for waking up the beast in me
Face me in challenge NOW, whoever you are!
Shame on everyone, who killed my sons
Flame is the only cure for your rotten souls

The truth is always on the surface,
No need to dig so deep for it
Just listen to the voices of wisdom
As the Crimson King did..


Don't be a fool
My fallen brother
This is not a time for demands

You're a defective creation
Of our dear All-Father
Now your destiny is in our hands

Stop crying, come here and accept your punishment, just as our Emperor commands! His faithful wolves won't wait forever, and if you will not surrender - we will gladly come for you!


Enough!

I won't follow your pitiful lead
I won't listen and I won't believe
I am totally out of control
'Cause I saw how you've burned my home

So don't hope for my mercy now
My revenge will destroy even stars
From this moment I'm bringing this vow
To reclaim what once was ours

Dare to face me now!
Track Name: PESEDJET (ft. Diary of My Misanthropy)
Your strength means nothing for us
Our legion will rise from the ashes
My sons, follow your primarch
The battle begun, no way to retreat

We step into Prospero
Bow down under our clear-eyed gaze
See fire sparkles on our plates
The magic flame is our essence
Feel the power of our Pesedjet

NOW!

You'll never
Feel such pain as we did
You'll never
Be allowed to outbid
Our knowledge
Which will be locked forever for you...

Your strength means nothing for us
Our legion will rise from the ashes
My sons, follow your primarch
The battle begun, no way to retreat

Tizca welcomes us with millions lights
Will meet their death in a magic flame
The memory of us would be lost
Feel the pain of our legion

How could you be so ignorant and paranoiac?
You have destroyed our sacred place!

With no remorse
You will be cursed

You will be burned
By our "precious" magic
Your all will know
The scale of the tragic

We
Should have to see
And don't believe
That you can flee
So easily

Величественный по всём
И во главе с Алым Королём
Врезаясь кромкой хопеша в рассвет
Бесстрашно в бой идёт Песеджет
Track Name: RUBRIC OF AHRIMAN (ft. Brojob)
No! Cursed you be
For the treachery against your father
It hurts so much!
There is no excuse for wreaking such a havoc

Look, what have you done!
All the brothers that you loved so much are no more!
Soulless creatures of steel and dust
No will, no purpose, no idea how to live

Stand up and accept your punishment, like a son of Prospero
Which you once used to be!


You are losing control
Your grip weakens
As sanity fades
(From now on)
I am no man's son!
I did what I had to do
There was the only way for us
To break free
There's no one to blame
But yourself!
I succeeded where you failed [2x]


Stay by me
And I promise, we will find the way
To be free
To take back everything they owe
Do blame them
For their arrogance
For this curse
And everything you will endure
Track Name: RAPTORA
Lift your head up to see your death above the sky
I want to see remorse in your eyes
Lift your head up a hope is just an ugly lie
I'm gonna cut it off with your head

Devastated and decapitated
No mercy, no fear and no doubts
Your life means nothing for us
Our soul is faded we are loaded with hatred
Why were we created?
Close ranks to fight the death tonight

Honoris! Imperium! Uirtus
Gloria! Victorius! Raptora
Raise kine-shields my brothers
Legio! Basileus! Magnus

Came to kill, will peel your face skin
My will can mill your soul like a windmill
I spill your guts and that's what I wanna feel
You will regret every moment you lived in...

I despise you! There is not word to describe how I hate you.
For all the suffering and pain that we came through
For our devotion and love we've got a stab. Who
You think you are? We're coming for your soul, we are...

RAPTORA! We are the death, soaring in dark
RAPTORA! You betrayed us, your very own children
RAPTORA! You can’t wash so much blood from your hands
RAPTORA! The Warp at the door awaits

CRAWL!
Bow down before an imminent death
We'll steal your breath
BAWL!
Your hopes are dead, your God is deaf
Obey or pray - we'll hunt our prey, rrrah!

RUSH!

Red tongues of fire are dancing on our graves
Prospero was our home, now it's a giant tomb
Betrayed by our "unflawed", the Wolf became the Dog
You've been misled, we know
But hands are stained with blood.
The blood of Thousand Sons.
So now with no remorse
We'll dip our claws in your guts
Deluded Russ and wolves!

Conjuration is our damnation
Bolter shot is your salvation
High blood pressure, vein pulsation

Hope you like our presentation
Primal fear and devastation
Bringing total annihilation
Track Name: ATHANAEAN (ft. Marina)
Do you remember it, can you commemorate our precious City of Light?!
Sacred sanctums, battle anthems and your last stand?
Skies torn apart, rivers full of blood, and howling wolves
Titan’s final breath, flight of the Khemet
And buried truth? [2x]

I can clearly see the visions of this day,
The day I just stood and watched my sons die
I can clearly hear these screams of agony
Their souls are haunting me again and again

I know you can read my mind
I know you are looking inside
Right now Pandora’s box is open for you

Yes, my plan is perfect
And your role in it is the key
For so many doors, oh no,
You can’t even understand!

Come with me once more, use your spells for all your fallen brothers,
Join the fight, reclaim your right to be my son!


No! I don’t need your power or privileges,
All I need I’ll take by myself
The only thing I want is revenge
For myself and my father
To Horus and the Wolves
To burn their pelts and rip their hearts out!
We will enjoy their pain in full
The rage’s scales will blind our sight
We are swearing fealty to you
Lead us from here, give us a purpose
Track Name: ALL IS DUST (ft. John Wolfhooker)
My sons, I gathered you here today under these dying stars
So they could witness our rebirth
Not many of us has left to fight in this empty war
But I believe and know that we will succeed!

Now
Remember the reason you fight
There is nothing shameful in that
We’re doing it to fulfill destiny
We’ve been taken away from

Alas, there is one final debt we all must pay
This dream will cost us nothing and everything

Believe it or not
They all gonna rot
The time is now!
To reclaim the crown

Go!
Awake your brothers from the ashes
(From blasphemous sorcery of Ahriman)
And don’t return until our foes are crushed
For all is dust


My sons, I accept your oath
From now it is renewed
(Like all of you)
And even death won’t set you free

For all you perfectly know
What happens to everyone,
Who’s trying to escape from me
And Thousand Sons!
Track Name: THE WOLF KING (ft. Second to Sun)
When all the stars will extinguish, and the darkness will prevail
The meaning of words “per asper ad astra” will be devoured by centuries
Despair shall prevail and the ground will be flooded with blood
Everything will be consumed by silence, then he will appear once again

His eyes are filled with pain
The heart is teared apart with oppression of millennia
His soul is like a burnt-out field
Such burden is not for everyone to carry
He went through hundreds of thousands of battles
His sword never knew a taste of defeat

The rampant of his enemies makes him want
To gather the hunt, to crush this scum
The time shall come, the Wolf King shall call for us

How much more disaster we have to prevail
So you would gaze upon us?
How much more souls we have to send to the Warp
So you would bring the disaster to enemy’s side alongside us?
Track Name: THE WOLF TIME
The doom is nigh
Pain and suffering
Will wash away
Everything that I loved
The Beacon of Secrets
Is about to extinguish
The last humanity's stronghold
Shall fall

There is no espace
Death is my burden
Don't wait for me
The Wolf Time is now!

Forgive me, brother
We were wrong
For all we've done
The Void awaits us!
