Monia Lisa This debut album foreshadows the emergence of a prodigy, Fading Aeon, who gives an epic dimension to a very well performed melodic death metal. Definitely not to be missed! Favorite track: Fear My Name.

Fear My Name 08:04
Just look at them Those little pests They'll be my prey My harvest Driven by fear They are fighting here They are just puppets And i'm pulling the strings The sky turns dark I spread my wings Thunder and spark I come for slaves and kings They pale before my might As i descend Their death is near Now I am here You seek salvation Damnation waits for you There is no light But darkness Your souls be damned For they are mine This is my game Fear my name I breed discord Seed wrath and hate War is my instrument My servant Here I wander Between their tiers I hear their screams I smell their deepest fears Their pain’s a gift Their blood like bittersweet wine They will be slaughtered Like Swine Their Lives shall fade Dead bodies pile up high A feast for worms All must die You seek salvation Damnation waits for you There is no light But darkness Your souls be damned For they are mine This is my game Fear my name There’s no salvation No Hope To Hold on to You will fall Your Life is mine As is your soul All Light fades away You will die Now kneel before my might My time has come Nowhere to run The End of my chase Now Feel my cold embrace You seek salvation Damnation waits for you There is no light But darkness Your souls be damned For they are mine This is my game Fear my name Fear my name For I am Death

Entering the Battlefield Our Enemies in Sight No Force can discourage us We’ll stand tall with all our might No Fear of Death No Regret in our Hearts Our last journey lies ahead And on it – with joy – we will start Tonight We Will Rise To Our Gods Up On High With our brothers by our side Prepared for one last ride With the swords in our hands We’ll fight till the end of our lives For tonight we will rise Tonight we will rise Now the slaughter has begun A crimson veil cloaks the soil beneath our feet But we won’t leave this task undone Even if our ends we shall meet No Fear of Death No Regret in our Hearts Our last journey lies ahead And on it – with joy – we will start Tonight We Will Rise To Our Gods Up On High With our brothers by our side Prepared for one last ride With the swords in our hands We’ll fight till the end of our lives For tonight we will rise We will rise tonight For the ones we have left behind We’ll defy And we will die For the ones we love Is this the end? Has our desperated battle failed at last? Could we protect our loved ones? Could we buy them time to run? What if their fates are already sealed? What if there’s no hope to hold on to? Are their lives to be taken tonight? Will we die in vain? No… One more time we shall raise our swords Cause the end is yet to come We’ll fight on until we breath our last Our final hour has begun No Fear of Death No Regret in our Hearts Our last journey lies ahead And on it – with joy – we will start Tonight We Will Rise To Our Gods Up On High With our brothers by our side Prepared for one last ride With the swords in our hands We’ll fight till the end of our lives For tonight we will… Rise Tonight We will rise To our gods up on high Till the end we’ll defy For the ones left behind Till we all die For Tonight we will rise Tonight we will rise

Bleeding I Lie down Amongst my fallen brothers In countless thoughts i drown But why should i still bother? My mind is restless As the breath of life is fading Salvation is my last craving Was my sacrifice but worthless? Oh will this torture never end? Only a fragile hope remains Their fate lies no more in my hand I gave my life So they can survive The ones I love must not die For this I beg with a final outcry Grief fills my heart As I will never see them again If only I could take one last farewell The sorrow that I feel Is worse than any of my wounds So cruel is this ordeal So unbearable my doom Even in my final hour My thoughts are with them Such a fate they must not share This to wish is all I dare Their lives is all that matters now For them my blood was shed To protect them was my vow At any cost, until I'm dead I gave my life So they can survive The ones I love must not die For this I beg with a final outcry Grief fills my heart As I will never see them again If only I could take one last farewell Maybe there's a way to see them Offered through the gift of steel In Valhalla we would meet Reunited we would be NO This desperation taints my mind I must not think this way How could I ever be so selfish Nothing is worth their decay I must accept My lonely fate I don't regret The choice I made Alone I die This is the price I pay with woe To save their lives I gave my life So they can survive The ones I love must not die For this I beg with a final outcry Grief fills my heart As I will never see them again If only I could take one last farewell I will never see them again If only I could take one last... farewell ONE LAST FAREWELL I gave my Life They must survive The ones I love must not die Grief fills my heart as I will never see them again If only I could take one last - fare- well

Where am I? What is this place? Did I get lost On my way to the gods? The Golden Hall is out of sight Ain't I worthy due to the way I died Will this nothingness be my resting place (Now and Forever) Am I but a shadow between two Worlds (Bound to our Realm) Am I doomed to roam this netherworld in disgrace (Damned you shall be) Am I lost beyond The Veil? What if the gods chose this path for me? To prove my strength and show I'm worthy To resist this darkness is my quest for honour While untold evil lurks around each and every corner I'll find my way to reach valhalla My rightful place there I will take My march begins! To leave these lands Through obscure mist My wayfare leads My destination's close and yet so far But I'll take on all burdens no matter how grave they are Will this nothingness be my resting place (Now and Forever) Am I but a shadow between two worlds (Bound to our Realm) Am I doomed to roam this netherworld in disgrace (Damned you shall be) Am I Lost beyond The Veil? (You are trapped beyond the veil now) (You can't leave our Realm behind) (Come to us now, you belong here) (Far away from wife and child) (There's no way out you will stay here) (Access to the Hall denied) (Leave your quest and gods behind now) (Bound Forever here together) Your treacherous whispers cannot taint me (You are trapped beyond the veil now) (You can't leave our Realm behind) You won't make me leave my Trail (Come to us now, you belong here) (Far away from wife and child) You can't keep me from my Destiny (There's no way out you will stay here) (Access to the Hall denied) Against all odds I will prevail (Leave your quest and gods behind now) (Bound Forever here together) I will not back down! (You are trapped) I will never stop! (You can't leave) I will never stay! (Come to us) No, no, no (Forever and ever, bound together) I will leave your realm behind! The end seems nigh Long I've endured This place I'll leave Forevermore Could I prove my worth after all? Have I earned to enter my father's hall? Will this nothingness be my resting place (Now and Forever) Am I but a shadow between two worlds (Bound to our Realm) Am I doomed to roam this netherworld in disgrace (Damned you shall be) Am I Lost beyond The Veil? My destination lies ahead Now I've truly met my fate For this I have faced every dread Finally I pass Valhalla's gate

Many paths have lead me here To Valhalla where the gods are so near For Honour, for mead and for glory I've yearned After all these struggles I endured, this is what I've earned I have entered my father's hall Where my destiny lies I have followed my ancestor's call To Rise My brothers I'll meet again With whom I fought side by side Along with Gods we will solomnize Until the end of time In Honour we've lived By the sword we have died Our Place here - a gift For we have proven our pride The tales of our bravery shall fill this hall While we drink and rejoice and remember how we stood tall Brothers in arms we were in countless wars Never forgotten shall be our fearless battle roars I have entered my father's hall Where my destiny lies I have followed my ancestor's call To Rise My brothers I'll meet again With whom I fought side by side Along with Gods we will solomnize Until the end of time I fought I bled I passed I suffered Untold menaces I've defied on my way Full of impediments was my journey I faced my decay I embraced my death I entered the nightmares' realm and accept That all of those suffrings were ment for me To endure them was my destiny But I'll never forget For what purpose my blood was truely shed For wife and son It had to be done I don't care for the glory But for their lives to maintain My Heart assures me they still walk the earth I feel that my misery was not in vain I have entered my father's hall Where my destiny lies I have followed my ancestor's call To Rise My brothers I'll meet again With whom I fought side by side Along with Gods we will solomnize Until the end of time To the last breath we fought For our loved ones we died Their survival is our reward For them we stood and fell side by side Now my story has been told My legend's carved in stone The memory will remain This honour is mine to claim My fate I have fullfilled As my blood has benn spilled Eternity attends This Is Where the Journey ends
