Dark Funeral – Unchain My Soul

Dark Funeral is a Swedish black metal band from Stockholm, founded by guitarists Blackmoon and Lord Ahriman in 1993.

From tombs of forgotten times,
I summon thee from thy sleep
Across the river, ferocious and wild,
from the graves and vaults of my thoughts

I call for you my brother let me leave this awful life
and drift away beyond the borders of this realm
You wandered off before me, now come back and pick me up
Unchain my soul and bring me where all light will fade
I cannot stay, I will not wait, I have to leave
this world forever, I swear not to return
Behind their masks there stand but slaves and servitude
was not our trade so rise and set me free and bring me home

So rise from the dead
Release me from this pain
I raise the dead
To unfold the gates to Hell

I summon all the forces from the darkness that gave birth
to our exsistence and lit the hellish flames
We shall stand tall and wander
Where the heavens can not reach
us as the path will lead into the dark and cold
We can not stay and wait, the passage has been cleared
The gates are open, there is no turning back
Those left behind, shall die as slaves, as servants of
their humble ways and Satan will be laughing from his throne

So rise from the dead
Release me from these chains
I raise the dead
To reclaim my throne in Hell

And before the rise of dawn, my soul will be free

I call for you my brother let me leave this awful life
and drift away beyond the borders of this realm
You wandered off before me, now come back and pick me up
Unchain my soul and bring me where all light will fade
I cannot stay, I will not wait, I have to leave
this world forever, I swear not to return
Behind their masks there stand but slaves and servitude
was not our trade so rise and set me free and bring me home

So rise from the dead
Release me from this pain
I raise the dead
To unfold the gates to Hell
So rise from the dead
Release me from these chains
I raise the dead
To reclaim my throne in Hell

Avatar – Let Us Die

Avatar is a Swedish heavy metal band, formed in Gothenburg, in 2001.

Oh, what a man
Goes as far as he can
For country and king
Nothing will stop him
Oh, what a man
The master of war
He’s coming for more
He’s raping your children

Handsome and brave
He will dig out our grave
And all the living things
Dies as he’s watching
Handsome and brave
His weapon is rape
We cannot escape
He’s taking your children

What will they take
When everything’s lost?
What will they take
Oh, everything’s lost!

If you don’t want us to live
Let us die
There’s too much pain to take in

We’ve lost our homes
To the man on the throne
Victorious king
His gun does the talking
We’ve lost our homes
Abandon all hope
He’s making you choke
Enslaving your children

All Songs Draconian

Draconian – Moon Over Sabaoth

Draconian is a Swedish Gothic doom metal band formed in Säffle in 1994.

Oh Fathers and kinsmen
Yield in glorious bow,
for its springtime on Saturn
See the Archons gather
around the celestial crown
for the god of Saturn

Towards the liquid light
Like a swarm of lice

We stand tall,
for no more shall our souls
rattle the chains of Saklas
and the moon over Sabaoth
Where you are laid to rest,
a skeleton that was blessed
We found only Death

Oh gracious Mother
You’re trapped here with us
in the darkness of Saturn
Hear the Archons whisper
in the shadows of fear
for the god of Saturn

Down comes the serpent rain
Of a god insane

We stand tall,
for no more shall our souls
rattle the chains of Saklas,
and the moon over Sabaoth
Where you are laid to rest –
a skeleton that was blessed
We found only Death

Let fires plummet
at the soundless dawn,
I am here to defend you
from the cold
(of) the Saturnian glow

Oh brothers sisters
Be brave and rise above
The moon over Sabaoth

We stand tall,
for no more shall our souls
rattle the chains of Saklas,
and the moon over Sabaoth
Where you are laid to rest –
a skeleton that was blessed
We found only Death


Sorry, no Live video for this as far as I know.

All Songs Dark Funeral

Dark Funeral – My Funeral

Dark Funeral is a Swedish black metal band from Stockholm, founded by guitarists Blackmoon and Lord Ahriman in 1993.

“At the end of this long and lonely path,
All misery will be gone”

Down this long and twining road
I walk with heavy feet
My head sunk down below
I have made up my mind
It’s time to end this life
Then peace I will find

Walking down to my funeral
The mortal sin…
Some might be sad
I’ll die with a grin
Walking down to my funeral
It’s time to die
When I leave this pathetic world
I will hold my head high

Angels are watching from above
As so does the evil ones
That lurks down below…

I am almost there – at my funeral

I reach the end of the twining road
I put a bullet in my gun, don’t need to reload
Feel the cold steel to my head
It’s time to pull the trigger
Soon I’ll be dead

Now when I’m at my funeral
I feel so free
Some might be sad
I’ll die with a grin
Now I’m at my funeral
I feel so free
The mortal sin…
Sin…

Angels and demons
Reach out for me
Kingdom’s wide open,
But I walk away from – thee

As I walk away…

“For eternal in twilight I dwell”

Walking down to my funeral
The mortal sin…
Some might be sad
I’ll die with a grin
Walking down to my funeral
It’s time to die
When I leave this pathetic world
I will hold my head high

Hold my head high…

All Songs Beseech

Beseech – Highwayman

Beseech is a gothic metal band from Borås, Sweden. They disbanded in 2006, and re-formed with a different line-up at the end of 2013.

[originally by Jimmy Webb]

I was a highwayman
Along the coach roads I did ride
With sword and pistol by my side
Many a young maid lost her baubles to my trade
Many a soldier shed his lifeblood on my blade
The bastards hung me in the spring of twenty-five
But I am still alive

I was a sailor
I was born upon the tide
And with the sea I did abide
I sailed a schooner round the Horn to Mexico
I went aloft and furled the mainsail in a blow
And when the yards broke off they said that I got killed
But I am living still

I was a dam builder
Across the river deep and wide
Where steel and water did collide
A place called Boulder on the wild Colorado
I slipped and fell into the wet concrete below
They buried me in that great tomb that knows no sound
But I am still around
I’ll always be around and around and around and around and around

I fly a starship
Across the Universe divide
And when I reach the other side
I’ll find a place to rest my spirit if I can
Perhaps I may become a highwayman again
Or I may simply be a single drop of rain
But I will remain
And I’ll be back again, and again and again and again and again

I’m not aware of a live version from Beseech, so here’s another cover from The Highwaymen.
