lyrics

Hands to your hilts there is something amiss here,
I feel the burn of malevolent eyes,
Tang in the air of a blood oiled weapon,
Cold thrill burns through me, get ready to fight!

My blood runs cold as I peer through the darkness,
Trying to see who appears in the night,
Stand firm stand tall, we will bolster our courage,
As we make ready to go to the fight,

What arcane masquerade,
Feigns likeness to that holy blade?
A thousand worlds could reveal not one so bright!
No man could dull my lust,
Nor years of blood, of sweat and dust,
Could ever still my heart whilst The Fourth remains in sight!

The shadows dance before us,
Bloodred, the night,
Whilst he would chose to stand alone,
Together we fight!
Embrace the fires of battle,
Coarsing through your flesh,
We'll stand our ground or die as one tonight!
Gilgamesh!

Crouched in the dark we're awaiting our fortune,
What will become of our souls on this night?
No mater what comes I'll stand by you my brothers,
Shoulder to Shoulder we'll enter the fight,

More heroes forced to kneel,
Before my saguine dance of steel,
Mighty swords 'neath which an army fell!
To face again my my denied,
Would tear apart the world's divide,
And in failure evermore shall this rift be where I dwell!

The shadows dance before us,
Bloodred, the night,
Whilst he would chose to stand alone,
Together we fight!
Embrace the fires of battle,
Coarsing through your flesh,
We'll stand our ground or die as one tonight!
Gilgamesh!

Stand your ground,
May the primals bless these warriors honour bound,
Still your heart,
Until in victory's triumph stand or to the other side depart.

How our swords are ablaze!
Never wanton or free,
But in battle are we,
Everlonging the day,
When the fire in your heart finds your blade!

The shadows dance before us,
Bloodred, the night,
Whilst he would chose to stand alone,
Together we fight!
Embrace the fires of battle,
Coarsing through your flesh,
We'll stand our ground or die as one tonight!
Gilgamesh!

about

Starforger Leicester, UK

Ever wanted to hear melodic death metal saturated with keyboards that's all about the Final Fantasy games? No, probably not, but that's what we went and made anyway. Starforger is a project where we get to be both as metal and as nerdy as we like. The keyboards are twinkly, the riffs are cheesy and the vocals are incomprehensible. We hope you enjoy it! ... more
