Decapitron A Kingdom Aflame is like marching into the depths of a dungeon full of undead, sword aloft, well aware you won't make it back out alive. It's sad and badass and I love every minute of it. Favorite track: Into the Starless Night.

The streets have fallen silent No voice for the meek and the blind Each gate stands uncontested Save for the palisades of my mind Righteousness gives way To death and decay You made a god of the godless Entrusted your lives to the flames The symphony of crackling flesh And the droning of the flies The harmonious wailing of women All call me to shed my disguise Righteousness gives way To death and decay You made a god of the godless Entrusted your lives to the flames No empathy for cowards Slaughter and deceit From fire and blood I forge my legacy

The blissful memories drenched in red Thoughts of proud beauty enslaved They follow you to the unknown For where your children’s children rest their heads And where you make your grave Can’t be the same, you’ll die alone With no tongues to sing your name And no pathways to light You march ahead with mind aflame Into the starless night Eyeless, you walk alone Into shadow For your home When the nameless evil rises from the deep And the city floods with death Your truest weapon outlasts stone Though the proudest of your spires lie in heaps When hope shudders its last breath Only then are you dethroned With no tongues to sing your name And no pathways to light You march ahead with mind aflame Into the starless night You walk alone

The moon is high A gift to light our way Into the fray The hunt is nigh For the blood that is our right Spilled in the night When fog has fallen Look to the caves Draped in the godflesh We feast from the grave Born to devour To be more than beast or man Sons of the land These horns of power Shall weave tales of chthonic might As their last sight When fog has fallen Look to the caves Draped in the godflesh We feast from the grave

Look to the waters a weeping The fortress ill-omened stands there Dungeons adorned with the skin of dead kings And the smell of torture fills the air When Blood you see flying over the hill The flayed man stands tall, beware. Send word to the bastard Swift vengeance, no mercy The flayed man stands tall, beware Pray for swift death He is coming to take you away To the Dreadfort he’ll take you Through torture he’ll break you No home for man Just beasts there lay When Blood you see flying over the hill The flayed man stands tall, beware. Send word to the bastard Swift vengeance, no mercy The flayed man stands tall, beware Look to the waters a weeping The fortress ill-omened stands there Dungeons adorned with the skin of dead kings And the smell of torture fills the air When Blood you see flying over the hill The flayed man stands tall, beware. Send word to the bastard Swift vengeance, no mercy The flayed man stands tall, beware

Stillborn upon a windless sea Ye slaver’s bounty Bastard of woe The gnawing fear won’t let thee be Force-fed the rotten fruits of seeds we did not sew Call out and weep To virgin lands of gilded woods They never knew your name The shore is gone The only way is down Go flee the dawn Beneath the waves and drown You have known since you were young The gods you dreamed, lie stiff and cold Your callow prayers, so often sung, Were written by one far too old Taught to believe The shadow is a passing thing It was your womb Your grave The shore is gone The only way is down Go flee the dawn Beneath the waves and drown I wish I’d known you then When we could stomach hope And faith in men Through endless ash, we grope
7.
You cast yourself beyond your sight Beyond prayer Beyond light The chilling answer A darkness you can feel Rushes forth from the void Crumbling the seal Herald of the shadows The hound of doom is once again set free Debt of damnation On cloven hoof, the Devil rides for thee They were the first to know your name To see your path into the flame And in the dark, when your last drop of hope is bled You will know your god is dead Herald of the shadows The hound of doom is once again set free Debt of damnation On cloven hoof, the Devil rides for thee

Like tolling death, it came We looked and saw the lights The foe we would not name Screaming from the mountain heights A promise of pain And ancient ode to fear With a bone-melting rain We knew our doom was near The song of our nation is ending in screams All that could have been, now but ashen dreams The smell of fear and desperate flesh is hot on the wind A kingdom aflame An age’s golden end Crumpling in the heat Clawing at our lungs The panic in the streets Trampling the young Oh how quickly they burn All our civil lies To beasts we return When the smoke begins to rise The song of our nation is ending in screams All that could have been, now but ashen dreams The smell of fear and desperate flesh is hot on the wind A kingdom aflame An age’s golden end Sulfuric gale Smoldering death Tooth and nail Dragon’s breath We plead to the gods but they answer with flames Like the sun, we are falling down
