Colin M. A glorious callback to the wondrously cheesy 80s heavy metal scene drenched in B-Movie horror and insanely catchy hooks. Favorite track: Dead Girls.

BumBumBlanka Usually I'm not a fan of old school Heavy Metal. But this is so good. Take out the jeans jacket again and start the moshpit. The refrains are so melodic. Very nice guitar play and songwriting. If you like Metal check it out. They definetly deserve it! Favorite track: Somewhere Under Summerwind.

Dan Capp To me, Walpyrgus is like Horror Punk meets Metal. Tacky dark themes delivered in an energetic, upbeat manner. Clearly a band having fun, and as a result writing effortlessly catchy, enjoyable metal. Favorite track: Walpyrgus Nights.

---"THE DEAD OF NIGHT"--- She’s traipsing through the graves again Sold soul dark desecrator woman Can’t pick your final fate, turned to the light too late Go forward and you’ll learn, about the day you’ll burn,burn,burn,burn, Dead of the night, come to life at the fall of creation Mother croons at her womb’s desecration One’s when she’ll spill forth from her den Your death’s in danger soon to end, to end You’ve cut the hour too close, to reach the holy ghost The light to which you pray, can’t keep the dark away, away! Dead of night come to life, you’re the queen got no equal But you’re cold and you’re dark and you’re evil You retire to the mire, where you crawl with the creatures of the night Where the light never reaches Dead of night come to life, you’re alive but you’re listless You’re the one in the sun who’s defenseless Hide away in the day, when you dream you’re an angel of the night You just might get your wishes to come true In the dead of night...

---"SOMEWHERE UNDER SUMMERWIND"--- Summerwind always seemed to be loathed and abandoned Children always said that they could see ghosts in that mansion Tell me of the tragic hoary things, like loveless phantoms Little Ones said that they indeed had dead companions Beneath the earth where the ground covers up something under Summerwind Beats evil’s heart in that old basement, somewhere under Summerwind I wanna know the reason ravens sing, tales of attrition Tell me all about the things you’ve seen, full body apparitions Still where they died in the night they'll hide, those skulls under Summerwind Grin as they might something is not right, and every night it will begin again Heaven couldn’t burn it back to hell, still stand those ruins The Dreaded never turn back where they dwell, no use pretending Beneath the earth where the ground covers up, something under Summerwind Beats evil’s heart in that old mansion, someone’s still in Summerwind Somewhere under Summerwind

Dead Girls 03:18
---"Dead Girls"--- When the full moon's in the sky, you can see those evil eyes Dead Girls from the other side, with demons in their minds Just one little child, and she grew up wild Mother of shadows kept her safe On the night that she turned 18 She walked the edge where the neon gleams She wandered out and killed that baby When the full moon's in the sky, you can see those evil eyes Dead girls from the other side, with demons in their minds Soon found her way around, on the dark side of the town Became an evil shadow 'neath the street lamps Beauty waned felt her magic fade Snatched up by this evil place Now she's just a mortal tramp And when the full moon's in the sky, you can see those evil eyes Dead Girls from the other side, with demons in their minds She sold her soul tonight, all around were the spirits bright To celebrate the newborn evil mistress Legends tell of her slimy bones And how the walk old windy roads Just another ghost inside this forest And when the full moon's in the sky, you can see those evil eyes Dead Girls from the other side, with demons in their minds And when the night falls on the town, no one wants to be around 'Cause all they'd hear is the awful sounds, of The Dead Girls and their prey

Lauralone 05:01
---"LAURALONE"--- Lauralone never liked her life, she longed for the beyond She played with the planchette and attracted all the wrong Old dreadful spirits sang as she sprang from her bed Sprawling at the calling, for she knew she’d soon be dead, knew she’d soon be dead! Lauralone was followed home by evil evil things Her heart stop at the door knock, it must be the awful being Lauralone was far from home and soon began to pray She cried aloud, please help me now I wish this all away The Evil Ones had left her body in the woods Slaughtered on the altar where the heart had been removed Those little bones were found midnight All Hallows Eve Taken by the angels across the dark divide was she, dark divide was she! Lauralone was followed home by evil evil things A heart stop at the door knock, it must be the awful being Lauralone was lost alone and soon began to fray She frowned her mouth, up to the clouds, I curse this evil day In the night when the light isn’t perfectly bright There’s a chance to believe in a lie In the here it’s unclear what’ll finally appear And Laura’s alone with her fear You thought you were alone at night, you thought, but you were not Evening’s always scheming and you tremble in the dark No sage nor psalm can send ‘em back were they came from You’re damned to pay the price of life in death alone, life in death alone life in death alone, life in death alone! Lauralone was followed home by evil evil things Her heart stop at the door knock, It must be the awful being Lauralone now sadly moans amongst all of the tombstones Tragic ways and misery are all the Laura knows In the night when the light isn’t perfectly bright There’s a chance to believe in a lie, chance to believe in a lie And Laura’s alone with her fear of the night as she goes to sleep Laura’s alone with her fear, Laura’s alone with her fear Lauralone, Lauralone Lauralone, Lauralone

Palmystry 05:09
---"PALMYSTRY"--- Come nearer my dear Come close, let me take your hand now It's clear as I look here Your future's looking pretty bad child I see you, you know too This path dead ends without a chance No life line, no good times Should you not give me one last dance I always saw your red hand glowing in the pane Mocked my own superstition as I turn and walked away Now lady I'm before you I love and I abhor you I'm finally coming home You've got some fascination With all your ists and isms And I see you just wanna worry me So Gypsy what's my warning You've got some trouble coming Energized by death's dark mystery What would we do with us if we were locked as one Your ways are dubious, I'm sick with fear of what's to come Lady I'm trapped to love you The one that I belong to I'm finally coming home You've got some fascination With all your ists and isms And I see you just wanna worry me So Gypsy what's my warning You've got some trouble coming Energized by death's dark mystery Oh Mistress Palmistress! Your palmistry is about to burden me Your Mistress Palmistress! Anarchy is the only thing you need

She Lives 02:46
---"SHE LIVES"--- She's a dreamer and she lives far beyond the sun Where eternity unfolds 'Tis the season when she haunts children in the dark And the night foxfire is out She lives once again when you say her name Up from the ground she'll dig You'll gasp aloud "She Lives!" She's a demon and she will take you in the night On a midnight carriage ride She lives once again when you say her name Up from the ground she'll dig Go warn the town she lives She lives once again when you say her name Up from the ground she'll dig You'll gasp aloud "She Lives!" Don't seal that open grave She will return to death We must never forget she lives, she lives
7.
---"LIGHT OF A TORCH"--- Empty streets, the sun is down Barking dogs, a distant sound Early morn, see the dawn Breaking red, tomorrow's dead Neon lights, never dies A monument, we've reached the end The end of love, the end of hate The end of time, the ending of the world They were just like all others Not so long ago Rats all in the dumps And headed for the town Possessed by evil forces With madness in their eyes Raging cross the country They left grief and death behind Please share my nightmare, won't you bring around the light of a torch Please share my nightmare, I need a back to lean upon I'm scared to death by the things that I see in the light of a torch It's burning in the city The lights went out tonight The demons without pity Quickly fill my sight They're coming fast towards me Like the streets have come alive Expose their yellow teeth In a deafening battle cry Please share my nightmare, won't you bring around the light of a torch Please share my nightmare, I need a back to lean upon I'm scared to death by the things I see in the light of a torch I'm up against the wall Fire keeps them back Soon my torch will burn out Leaving everything in black I have to find somebody Who can wake me from this dream There has to be someone To hear me when I scream

---"WALPYRGUS NIGHTS"--- It's All Walpyrgus Night and the fires they are burning ever bright Watch them rise to the heavens Just as sick as it may seem you will see them all sway amongst the flames For a chance to be given, for a chance to be given On All Walpyrgus Night, fire burning, On All Walpyrgus Night She the first to fly who was bathed in the afterbirth tonight Who will be The Begotten? Behold this pyre's might, you will see it is fueling on the frights And the plight of the rotten On All Walpyrgus Night, fire burning, On All Walpyrgus Night On All Walpyrgus Night, fire burning, On All Walpyrgus Night On Walpyrgus Night, woh oh oh oh oh oh On Walpyrgus Night, woh oh On Walpyrgus Night, woh oh oh oh oh oh On Walpyrgus Night, woh oh ohhhhhhhhhh ALL WALPYRGUS!!! ALL WALPYRGUS!!! OH!
