    FUNERAL NATION – After the Battle (Slipcase CD + Pôster + Stickers)

    Originally released by cultured TURBO MUSIC in 1991, ′′ After the Battle ′′ was the debut album by Americans of FUNERAL NATION. Particularly this was an album that marked the season, during the ′′ transition ′′ between traditional metal and the then-new feared Black Metal of the early 90 s! We can undoubtedly assert that Funeral Nation in its early career dealt with a nefarious continuation of Venom and Bulldozer's primordial releases in all its glory, but still keeping strong the tradition of Possessed and Exodus in its music. ′′ After the Battle ′′ leaves nothing to be desired to these mentioned bands and if you, headbanger of the former Venom / Bathory / Possessed Trinity worshippers or even the youngest fans who cultivate the eightentist metal, this is absolutely indispensable in your collection!

    This exclusive version of Brazil brings a slipcase with a varnished finish, plus an extra 24 × 36 printed front and back, with photos from the season!
    A limited release in 300 units - only for die hards!!
    ** This is an exlusive release for Brazil only – International orders, ask the band directly!**

Thrashed immortal soldier is my mirror image now The battle of armageddon seized, the blood upon my hands I can kill with just a thought, my strength needs no defense The twisting of my mind, the possession of my soul tells me... I am a sinner, burn me well My life on earth, is the beginning of the end Ride with me and you will see Tonight's the end of Christianity God will perish in hells abyss And I will get my strength, from his blood Almighty God, mistakes you've made through the years Keep your past, for I hold the future Lucifer, hear me, give me what I need Darkness, and fire, and Christ will die Leviathan, master of the sea Fill my cup, with blasphemy Die Nazarene, hang upon your cross I, rule the night, I drove the last spike through your hand Here I am, redeemer of you all Will you dare to enter my kingdom of hell Sell your soul, my father waits All happiness destroyed by hate Your king of kings stands not a chance Against my father's evil wrath There you stand, blinded by truth Now close your eyes, and you will die The gates of hell are all you'll see And Satan stands to the left of me Open your eyes, we're his trinity In hell you'll rot eternally
2.
Nazarene The pain you felt upon the cross Was nothing Compared to mine Your book of lies Disquised through time To fool all mankind How can I trust What I can not see Believe in what will never be Soon your people Are gonna see Through your stupidity and fall to me Reading through your book of lies You speak of a war that's going to come How do you know how it's to end up Before the war is even done The serpent lies in dormant form He will rise when all the locks are broken I hold the seven keys in my hand These are the words that must be spoken Open wide the gates of hell Greet me as your friend Grant me the indulgences of which I speak Unleash the sword and slay the lamb Chorus Nations will form on either shore And till man exists no more By turning man against his brother And the seas against the skies Turn the moon against the sun Till everything has died The priest, he speaks the words Unto the burial ground Ashes to ashes Dust to dust In God we trust Now you've heard The other side The way the war is gonna be won Make your choice Now you have Two ways to decide The way of love or the way of hate Will determine where you go Into the sky with the holy one Or burn with me far below Now your mind will waste away Trying to decide Don't be afraid it's just your life And I'll take care of when you die Chorus
3.
All is quiet, no one can hear As the weapons from hell are unleashed Innocent people, living their lives Now knowing if they are to die Evil lies waiting, The world collides As demons are summoned from hell Graves are unearthed As satan looks on his face of death staring down Open your eyes So you may see bewildered men with mildewed eyes Satan's legions standing strong and ready The elder laughing as they die The sword of Satan moves quick across the Earth Taking what stands in its way "SAY YOUR LAST WORDS FOR YOUR TIME HAS COME" Satan screams in victory Satanistic Monarchy reigns upon the Earth Demons dancing al around Legions of the dead, hounds of hell Eat rotting flesh decaying corpses lie Death reveals itself from hell To take your life away Buckle your armor and visit us Bring forth the legions of hell Your god has failed you on your holy quest His fortune lies heavy in your heart Look to the corners of Earth You'll see hell all around Now read my message: Your time has come... Live to die...and die to BURN... Eternal destruction destroyed the holy earth The holy wait impoatiently for Christ's second birth Priests, don't pray for us, don't ring your fuckin bell Don't you try and save us, just let us rot in HELL

The Dark 05:33
The darkness falls, the moon it fades away Rest in peace, for tomorrow's judgment day But confusing thoughts, are running through your head Because nobody ever pronounced "You're dead" How were you to know that you were ever gonna die If this is all true there's not a damn thing you can do But if these are all lies, open your eyes and look around Maybe then somebody can dig you up from the grave If there was a god, would he let you be Caught up in confusion, and all this fucking misery Do people remember the things you did These were the people, who helped me close the lid The only thing I can do Is kneel down and pray for you Maybe then you might be saved From being thrown into a premature grave Speak to me before I start to dig Beg and plead before I close the lid I'll laugh at all the sorrow you feel You better rise before the tomb is sealed Soon you're gonna see, what life means to me Take my guiding hand, into the promised land Like a grain of sand, cast into the sea Is what your soul will be, for eternity Now that the tomb is sealed There's not a thing you can do How was I to know that you weren't dead You never listened to a word I said Hear me laugh, when you are denied Admittance into paradise Your soul is gone, your heart is bleeding Upon your flesh...I'll be feeding
5.
Church of Christ, I step into the hallowed by disguise My adrenaline flows as I watch the priest arise Burning soul of Satan's child, My tortured soul set free Give me hell or give me death, plea to yourself, not me Vessels burst upon my face, Satan's in my soul Kill me now, holy one, cause Satan's in control Bullshit words, held in your power, have no effect on me Sea of death shall overflow in chains, I'll take your soul Laugh at you with burning eyes Hypnotize your saints Into the depths of hell With me your soul shall be set free Saints transformed to demons, chanting spells with me The church drips blood of martyrs, walls bleed endlessly Allied with Satan's army, the end of time is here Soon our souls will be taken, down to hell we'll rot Demons flying overhead, the smell of death is here Morning looks like evil, the gates of gold have fallen Spilling blood of angels burned by Satan The southern cross held high, Jesus Christ has died You had the chance to repent, Armageddon's here The holy running scared, stricken with fear Without the thought of their savior coming, they are fuckin lost Now our army shall rule the world, with a REIGN OF DEATH

The gong sounds, to summon the powers of darkness The congregation speaks "HAIL SATAN" The chalice held high by the priest Sacrifice begins tonight Black candles light the midnight sky The blade raised toward the moon Oh clean the air, my father's coming soon SATAN, hear my cries tonight I need no one to tell me wrong or right BELIAL, ruler of the Earth Prepare the mortals for the afterbirth Priest now raise the blade Plunge it down towards her breast Bitch blonde I kill your God, I'll kill you too Spill your blood I need your strength Your soul belongs to me Unholy lust now fills your loins I'll fuck you till you bleed Lightning strikes the midnight hour The bell begins to chime To the sign you're all God's children Now you are all mine Witches congregate around the cauldron The congregation speaks "HAIL SATAN" Demons rising up from hell Warlocks gather around to cast a spell Incantations break the silence, united by their spell Before this evil night is over, we'll be one with hell

Shadows appear before my eyes Life means nothing no more My earthly soul begins to descend To where I do not know Flames now heat my body Is this the end for me? My mind and heart fail to compromise In hell I'll rot eternally The holy trinity is not for me HAIL THE SIGN OF BAPHOMET Goat of Mendes give me all the powers of hell On the right side of Satan's throne I will reign... In the depths of hell I see, mortals scream in agony Repenting of their earthly doings I laugh with satanic wrath I look towards the seventh gate, and this, is what, I see... People running nowhere not knowing what to do The holy being burned at the stake Burn your fucking trinity HAIL THE SIGN OF BAPHOMET Kneeling at my father's thrown, soon I'll begin my reign All the pain the suffering, tickles my blood sought brain The smell of mortals burning flesh begins to bring Laughter to my eyes I see mortal forces rising from the depths of Hell They begin to take the earth...now... The holy do not have a prayer Against the powers of darkness In nomine dei nostri satanas Lucifer excelsi BELIAL PRAISE! Satan rises up from Hell, to take the evil ones Our legions are much stronger now War has been declared Hiding in the endless shadows, high upon a cross His father turned away from him The holy do not have a prayer Against the powers of darkness In nomine dei nostri satanas Lucifer excelsi BELIAL PRAISE!
