grungiernine0 So I've listened to this album a lot since I bought it and have come to this conclusion; it's fucking great.

Genuinely awesome hardcore/death metal fusion. Crossover death, perhaps? Favorite track: Golden Horde.
Fabrizzio thumbnail
Fabrizzio tons of groove and power for that death metal mixing punk and hardcore! Favorite track: Sajo.

Bill Smello This is the catchiest death metal I have heard in forever. I love the diversity in all of the vocalists styles and the instrumentation makes me feel like I'm being slammed into a wall. Each track is just so fucking groovy and technical. I'm left knocked down and wanting more! Favorite track: Goliath's Spring.

Sajo 01:57
Invading horde War hungry Batu Sheltered Cumans Casus belli False retreat Bela gives chase To the banks of Sajo Sabutai lies in wait Circled wagons Captured bridge Stones at dawn The lines break Driven back Out-flanked Battered by siege engines Encircled Panic sweeps Soldiers trampled by comrades' feet A single gap Fleeting chance Narrow path through a sea of mares Mongol trap Taken bait Ridden down shot in the back Magyar blood Seeps into the soil Spills into the Sajo The horde spills forth
Golden Horde 03:10
Warlord Mother Golden Horde Legitimate heirs Succumb and perish The great hordes Splinter and fracture Widowed forced to flee In hiding the child is found Return to the old ways Subject all restore the khanate Ride to the west Conquer the Oirats Tear meat with their teeth Kneel to the presence of a Khan Ming dynasty Prepares for the worst A shield of a wall Stretching 10 000 miles
Princess of moonlight Master of quiver and bow Man after man thrown to the earth Kicking screaming 10 000 horses yet no suitor strong enough You cannot win Khutulun Man after man thrown to the earth Break ranks Man after man thrown to the earth Seize an enemy Man after man thrown to the earth As a hawk snatches a bird Man after man thrown to the earth Dragged back to her father Mounted on a steed Arrows loose Armor is pierced Crushed beneath hooves
Where can you flee? What road will you use to escape us? Our horses are swift Our arrows sharp Our swords like thunderbolts Our hearts as hard as the mountains Our soldiers as numerous as the sand Your prayers to god will not avail against us We are not moved my tears nor touched by lamentations Warrior slaves Last line of defense Fight fire with fire Feign retreat to the hills Trapped in the crossfire Ketbuqa's head cut from his shoulders Illusion of Invincibility Shattered forever Ain Jalut
Baghdad 02:11
Refusal To pay tribute Bend the knee Refusal To open the gates Bend the knee Arrogance To the fury of the Ilkhanate Arrogance Alamut laid to waste Reinforcements uncalled The Abbasid caliphate stands alone Desperate cavalry charge Flooded trapped filled with arrows Palisades Trenches Siege engines Catapults The walls of Baghdad collapse Attempt to beg/barter far too late Slaughtered Butchered Blood and ink stain the banks of the Tigris
Temüjin 03:56
Born with A hand clasped Around a blood clot Born with A destiny From heaven on high Descendent of the gray wolf Cast out of the tribal home Temüjin Unleashed from the steppes Unite the clans Crush loyalty Eyes of fire Set upon glory Pastures barren Retribution For every hair on their heads 100 000 heads roll in the dust Unleashed from the steppes From heaven on high Implacable vengeance Of the great Khan The brave join ranks Royalty wrapped in carpets Trampled by horses One by one Empires crumble to dust Eternal Blue Heaven Descendent of the gray wolf Cast out of the tribal home Thrown from steed into the afterlife Universe ruler sunset to sunrise
