Scumbag Metal rockin', hard and fast! NWOBHM and stoner/groove influences in the song structures and pacing throughout, modern execution and heaviness! Guitars galore, gruff vocals, twin axe solos and no shortage of riffs, something for every head bangin' metal fan... Have a listen! Favorite track: Merciless Faith.

Track Name: Merciless Faith
MERCILESS FAITH

(Music: Rajaniemi | Lyrics: Hiivala/Rajaniemi)

In the year of 1673
A religious tragedy
Himself the Devil came
To claim this community

Under the evil eye
Satan paint(ed) the blood red sky

Horrors you can't believe
Madness and misery
They prayed for deliverance
Only got God's ignorance

Under the evil eye
Satan paint the blood red sky
In the name of God let the crosses burn

One by one slowly went insane
Human pawns in this Lucifer's game
True believers, their beliefs in flames
Cursed to suffer under Devil's reign

Under the evil eye
Satan paint the blood red sky
In the name of God let the churches burn!
Track Name: 13 Shadows
13 SHADOWS

(Music: Rajaniemi | Lyrics: Hiivala/Rajaniemi)

Thirteen shadows moving on
The chosen ones blessed with the Devil's mark
They're 'bout to wake the unknown
On this night they're bound to their call

Those who have sworn to the dark
Arriving to the temple of unlight
Acts of magick, acts of lust
Unholy sermons held in praise of the ungod

The time is drawing near
They start to pray oh can you hear?
They've heard the call of the ancient ones
The rise of might unbound

The time is drawing near
They pray oh can you hear?
By the wisdom of the dead
We find ourselves in the end

The time is drawing near
The time is drawing near
The time is drawing near
The Devil is here
Track Name: Diabolical Queen
DIABOLICAL QUEEN

(Music: Rajaniemi/Hiivala | Lyrics: Rajaniemi/Hiivala)

Lonely man on the prowl of love
Just a slave to his needs
Lovely black shape with the hair of fire
Calls my name, invites me in

Woman of dark desires
Diabolical queen
Get on your knees
Cast your spell on me

Oh – suck my emotions
My dirty witch is what I need
Now we have more than a feeling
Second round's with whips and chains

Woman of dark desires
Diabolical queen
Get on your knees
Bow down! Kneel before me!

Oh – then a nasty surprise
Oh – the devil in disgust
Now he's the king of this dungeon
And the safe-word has changed
Track Name: Realms of Delirium
REALMS OF DELIRIUM

(Music and Lyrics: Rajaniemi)

Dazed with cosmic fear, falling into deep
Sure as hell I will be lost
Feel like sinking into the blue arms of sleep
Falling off the edge of sanity

I no longer reach for the shore
Guess I've been drifting too far for too long

Deeper into mind, realms of delirium
Ultimate apex of nightmare
Just within reach of my hand
The face of God, broken mirror

I no longer reach for the shore
Guess I've been drifting too far for too long
In this deluded reality
Savoured of madness and blasphemy
