An epic battle ensues as the true King is on his way to slaughter the people who betrayed him and locked him up. For centuries he has been waiting to get his vengeance. To claim what is rightfully his. His kingdom....


On a cold grim night. As I sit upon my throne. The screams of terror echoing, all across the land.

Decaying rotten flesh stench fills the air. Howls of those that are dying. Agony, pain, and fear.

What don't you understand?
You will die by my hands tonight.
While I take my place to rule all
Oderint dum metuant(let them hate so long as they fear)

Centuries have gone by, incarcerated, Deliverance from my prison. Wasting no more time.

A man burning with revenge and hatred prepares two graves. Not one left alive.

What don't you understand?
You will die by my hands tonight.
While I take my place to rule all
Let them hate, so long as they fear

As they fear, let them...let them hate.

I swear vengeance to all of my enemies who stand in my path and continued to stand.

You will crumble and bow to me
I am the one true ruler of all
And I will make this land mine again
And if you stand in my way, you will die.

I am the true ruler of all.
All of you will bow to me
And worship me as your god
For I am your.....KING!

All music recorded an performed(except drums) by Jon Santiago.

Metaljonus responds:

Thanks for checking it out and for the follow dude!

The lyrics don't seem to, uh, rhyme.

Metaljonus responds:

Well, it's not rap so there isn't so much of a "rhythm" to it. However, they fit in the context of this song and what the song is going for. Thanks for checking it out!
