about

Description:
Formed in late 2005; the six piece of metal traditionalist Witches Mark consist of current and former members of underground cult metal favorites Reverend, Panzergod, Ancient Cross, Hammerwhore, and Of the Fallen. Witches Mark will take you back to those glorious days of Metal Massacres when heavy metal was pure and unadulterated. .
Then again, there is no other band like them and that sometimes makes it difficult to describe exactly what Witches Mark are. They have been compared to an assortment of power metal to black metal bands and still nothing nearly comes close. This band is certainly their on beast; a creation of several influences, tons of aggression, and plenty of beer. This is untamed heavy metal like no other.

For fans of; FUCKIN' HEAVY METAL, really all you can say...

Track Name: Salem's Fire
Salem's Fire
Hangman's calling
The gallows is waiting for you
The crowd now gathers at first light
The church is to blame, a tyrannical reign
Live to Die now
She's sentenced to burn at the stake
The flames that cast out her demons
That hide from the light now feed on their fright
Heresy is running wild
With herbs she makes us ill
Children of the town are cursed
This witch who casts a spell
Lucifer is watching us
He hides among the trees
Waiting for the witching hour
Arriving in the
Wind tonight accusing me
The Devil speaks of witchery
The Cauldron-Born is blasphemy
upon they feed with human greed
They tie you to the moment
They tie you to the crime
Verdict from secret ballot
Behind the lies
(Repeat)
No your god won't save you
and the preacher hates you
Upon his cross he burns you
Salem's fire.
The women watch in horror
Thinking there's tomorrow
Townsmen seed the terror
with Salem's Fire
All my life alone
Just to see you home
Why won't your ride with me
(Repeat)
No your god won't save you
and the preacher hates you
Upon his cross he burns you
Salem's fire.
The women watch in horror
Thinking there's tomorrow
Townsmen seed the terror
with Salem's Fire
With embers burning brightly
and tear filled eyes that blind me
You can still see her burning
In Salem's Fire
They tie you to the moment
They tie you to the crime
Verdict from secret ballot
Behind the lies
Salem’s fire is burning free
They tie you to the moment
They tie you to the crime
Verdict from secret ballot
Behind the lies
(Repeat)
No your god won't save you
and the preacher hates you
Upon his cross he burns you
Salem's fire.
The women watch in horror
thinking there's tomorrow
Townsmen seed the terror
with Salem's Fire
Track Name: Cauldron Born
Cauldron-Born
Why deny me it's only you and I
Never finding the answers beyond life
Don't despise me
Hypnotized by you once more
Banished unto my dreams
Where streets of gold are glistening
to see...I feel at home
Take my hand walk with me
We'll bind the ties make history
Forever we are drifting we're as one
Break away from the chains
That bind you to this world we know
then you will find your not alone
Why deny me it's only you and I
Never finding the answer beyond life
I'll bring you pain and sorrow
I'll make your soul cry out
The story lives today
The passage gone tomorrow
The sickle's sharpened blade
Cuts cleanly through your life
No others wait for you
No shining light of white
Why deny me it's only you and I
Never finding the answers beyond life
Don't despise me
Hypnotized by you once more
Banished unto my dreams
Where streets of gold are glistening
to see...I feel at home
Track Name: Ethreal
Ethereal
I often wonder
If your resting in pieces
Is it cold and dark out there
Tell me can you here my voice
Show me a sign today
I need to know your well
Just one more sign today
I'm still under your spell
Are you alone and scared tonight
Did you see them waiting
To bring you to the other side
I feel your heart beat when it rains
A sign from you, you'll be ok
A life beyond has eased my mind
Who'll come for me when it's my time
Can you hear me call your name
I search to find a place
Some where to lay my head and die
Forever close my eyes
With you I'll be beside your side
'Til death shall do us part
Take now my final breath away
Told in the Witches Mark
With you forever I will stay
A sign from you beyond
Your cross less shallow grave
You whisper through a winter blue
A cold November rain
Are you alone and scared tonight
Did you see them waiting
To bring you to the other side
I often wonder if your resting in pieces
Can you hear me call your name
Track Name: A Grim Apparition
A Grim Apparition
A gathering of robes my friend
The ritual has begun
It beckons me
Entrapped again by your chant
Their voices are as one
Whisper to me
The spell they cast now over me
Takes you far away
Into the night
To a place where darkened dreams
Are hidden in my mind
Speaking to me
Speaking to me
Speaking to me
This is the path to nowhere
leading them astray
Finding their way
I walked alone in silence
making my own way
On through the night
The witches’ mark is carved
upon these ancient walls
A message to me
A lasting sign that weathers
beyond the warlock's call
This is the path to nowhere
leading them astray
I walked alone in silence
making my own way
The spell is cast
As you drift endlessly
The chant begins to call
beyond these sacred walls
Your pain is brief in your own misery
The spell is cast
My eyes now see the shadows
hidden in your mind
darkening all my thought of you
a witch's sign
The candle fades
My life of darkness has begun
