Our single on From Ashes Beneath. Check out the full EP!


The cannon roars
And screams of pain
Echo here

The flash of steel
And dying breath
Linger here

Hold fast to a dying whim
Righteousness assured
That servitude is law
And freedom is absurd
Take up killing arms
Strike the traitors down
Avenge the massacred
And free the bound

Forces gather to disrupt the light
And corrode a free land
A new frontier in the battle
For the souls of men

Blood runs in the river
Stain the earth with crimson
