about

In our second song, Armada, the hero, after rising through the ranks of the Empire's army, plans to strike at the core of their age old enemy by sailing a fleet of unprecedented size through the dangerous northern ice flows, which have never been successfully navigated. If he achieves this, the weak heart of the enemy will be open before him.

lyrics

In battles of the East we’ve earned our names
Victorious, their towers wreathed inflames
And the walls off the world must bear the lion’s mark
Empires rise and fall to dust in the passing of our march

We are the golden horde, the shield of iron, mask of the beast ride far
Who led by him, stalk the plains
Engulfed in the fire of the dark

We go beyond my brothers, far beyond
But I promise you that soon we shall return
From deep horizons to seas unknown
Our enemies of the dark
So set you scarlet sails aflight with hatred in your hearts
And loosed like the arrow from an emerald bow
We shall strike them from this world
And the tyrants will fear our names

And with brave words the ship set sail, carving through the silver bays
Beneath the wheeling gulls and cormorants that day
Following the northern star, where ice like dragon's teeth
Had long guarded the ancient strongholds of the enemy

Lashed to the mast a sailor, a traitor, will guide
And with each shuddering night, the shadows return as he closed his eyes
Their lives are were only his to lose
His lantern is their comfort in the night

We go beyond my brothers, far beyond
But I promise you that soon we shall return
From deep horizons to seas unknown
Our enemies of the dark
So set you scarlet sails aflight with hatred in your hearts
And loosed like the arrow from an emerald bow
We shall strike them from this world
And the tyrants will fear our names
