turning_ever_towards_the_sun Persekutor delivers old school black metal and perfect lyrics, combined with a perfect image of goat herdes. Is there anything not to like? Favorite track: Winter's Meat.

Kriegsminister 666 Really good mid to slow-paced old school black metal. Frozen guitar tone with semi-humorous lyrics, infectious riffs and great songs. Drums are simple yet extremely effective. "Winter's Meat" with its evil groove and harsh lyrics are a highlight, but all the songs are krieg! Recommended for fans of early Immortal and Venom. Favorite track: Winter's Meat.

Track Name: Arctic Cross
fire at will
the time is now
in the fray
they'll burn you down

trapped inside
the trench & glare
face the wind
where eagles dare

the arctic cross
it leads the way
ancient frost
is here to stay

pike & ax
they pave the way
arctic cross
is here to stay

cossacks march
in time today
across the steppe
you'll feel the blade

the lies that band
they fall away
torch the land
it's all at stake

(repeat chorus)
Track Name: Polar Trauma
onward soldiers
crack the sky
onward christians
now's the time
leaden stomach
reddened sky
polar trauma
slow to die

frozen eyelids
painful cries
frozen hands
empty stomach
blackened sky
polar trauma
way to die

who decides
who rides
the rising tide

big surprise
what lies
on the fucking ice

fate decides
who dies
in frozen climes

can you survive
in the fucking ice?

onward soldiers
arctic skies
onward christians
live the lie

polar bears
teeth like knives
tear your face off
shred your thighs

blackened fingers
blackened eyes
frozen faces
polar trauma
arctic dive
polar trauma
time to die
Track Name: Winter's Meat
killers of the sow
hidden in the bough
waiting for the beast
looking for a feast
frozen is the plough
ice storm coming down
mysteries of the past
they never last


another stiff drink
another round
another dead man
in the ground
another flesh wound
winter's sup
another bloodbath
rip it up

(verse 2)

bearers of the blade
soon they'll be repaid
bleeding in the snow
sever blackened toes
facing down the beast
praying for the heat
feel the horn of hate
now it's much too late
memories of the past
they never last

(chorus x 1)

another flesh wound
winter's sup
another bloodbath
lick it up
