This is a gift we wanted to release to celebrate our 10th anniversary and the 30th anniversary from the release of the masterpiece album "Under the Sign of the Black Mark" by Bathory. This is a cover of "Call From The Grave", one of our favorite songs from that album!


God of Heaven
Hear my cries of anguish
I'm in pain

I've suffered a thousand deaths
But I live on in vain

Death would greet with eternal sleep
My soul would come to peace

My life had ceased
The time was comed
Can no one hear my pleas?

Lowered down in the moisty ground
Into the dark and cold

My heart's beat the only sound
Pain tears my limbs and soul

I scream for mercy
Hear my cries
Oh, Lord don't abandon me

I'm so tired
Grant me the eternal sleep

I tear at the lid
I suffer
In a cold and nameless grave

If Hell is what awaits me
I feel no fright

Buried and forgotten
In a cold and nameless grave

If there's a God in Heaven
Hear my call from the grave
