Kunx I had the chance to see these guys at Legions of Metal last weekend and they were amazing! There are so many great moments on this that I am not sure where to start because there's not a song I don't like. Love the solo on Enchantress, the intros on Keeper of the Flame and So Be It, "Knights Reaaalm"... all the great little moments that make this one a classic. Plus, the cover of 2525 is pretty much the best thing ever. Favorite track: Knights of the Realm.

Full Speed Ahead Voices Scream filling up the sky People are running scared Nowhere left to hide Panic in their hearts Ripping at their souls Now they’re trying to find the answers With no where left to go There’s fire in the streets It’s burning all around Death weaves its final web The whole world in its shroud Government control our lives Your number is your name You know we're in the final race We have ourselves to blame People’s faces they all look the same No one asking questions Trying to play this game But as I look around me time is passing by My future is upon me before my past has died Many lives have sacrificed Thousands more are scorned And all men have to pay the price When the angels blow their horns Your life is just a playing card No one keeping score The world turns on uncertain This ride is never sure People’s faces they all look the same No one asking questions Trying to play this game But as I look around me Time is passing by My future is upon me Before my past has died Full Speed Ahead

Keeper of the Flame In the darkness there is a flame Shadow of light that makes us stay Lies an image as old as time With dragon’s power can't rule his mind Kings and Queens will never hold The inner darkness of his soul Cuts his path straight through the sun You touch his hand you burn as one (Pre-Chorus) The Keeper of the flame In the darkness and the rain Keeper of the flame Quest for riches is not his gain There's a fire to keep his name Darkness hides within the light Burning endless through the night Death riding close in the shadows edge Exposed to light that burns you dead Never heard nor never seen His only traces are in dreams (Chorus) The Keeper of the flame In the darkness and the rain Keeper of the flame Never feeling any pain Keeper of the flame The Keeper of the flame In the darkness there is a flame Shadow of light that makes us stay Lies and image as old as time With dragon’s power, can't rule his mind Kings and Queens will never hold The inner darkness of his soul Cuts his path straight through the sun You touch his hand you burn as one (Repeat Chorus)

Enchantress of the Night In the heart of the city, heat of the night Looking so pretty, looking so tight Rockin’ the hard way in leather and lace Weaving your magic, not leaving a trace Pleasures and riches are always your gain Ending in sorrow, it's always the same Deceiver of lovers, sorcerer of faith Take heed of my warning before it's too late (Chorus) The enchantress of the night Feel the candles burning bright The enchantress of the night She'll be gone before daylight You can feel her eyes calling, drawing you near Trapped in her power, nothing is clear Caught in her circle, a link in a chain No chance to process all emotions in vain Chasing a shadow, you’re lost in a dream Know where you’re going, know where you've been Daughter of darkness, mistress of sin In total submission your heart never wins (Repeat Chorus)

In the Year 2525 Written and composed by Rick Evans In the year 2525 If man is still alive If woman can survive They may find In the year 3535 Ain't gonna need to tell the truth, tell no lies Everything you think, do, and say Is in the pill you took today In the year 4545 Ain't gonna need your teeth, won't need your eyes You won't find a thing to chew Nobody's gonna look at you In the year 5555 Your arms are hanging limp at your sides Your legs got nothing to do Some machine is doing that for you In the year 6565 Ain't gonna need no husband, won't need no wife You'll pick your son, pick your daughter too From the bottom of a long glass tube' Whoooa In the year 7510 If God's a-comin' he ought to make it by then Maybe he'll look around himself and say Guess it's time for the Judgement day In the year 8510 God is gonna shake his mighty head then He'll either say I'm pleased where man has been Or tear it down and start again In the year 9595 I'm kinda wondering if man is gonna be alive He's taken everything this old earth can give And he ain't put back nothing Now it's been 10,000 years Man has cried a billion tears For what he never knew Now man's reign is through But through eternal night The twinkling of starlight So very far away Maybe it's only yesterday In the year 2525 If man is still alive If woman can survive They may thrive In the year 3535 Ain't gonna need to tell the truth, tell no lies Everything you think, do or say Is in the pill you took today ....(fading...)

Knights of the Realm Hail avenging rider, defender of the realm Fighting for your kingdom with Arthur at the helm The visions of a wizard coming of a thrown The coming of dark ages, sword within a stone (Chorus) From the knights’ realm Knights of the Round Table Knights’ realm Knights of the Round Table Now twilight is upon you as evil comes to call Morgan’s stolen magic brings a curse unto us all Spoke the charm of making To breed her unclean son Child of perdition, you know he's not the one Through the knights’ realm Knights of the Round Table Knights’ realm Knights of the Round Table Knights’ realm Knights of the Round Table Knights’ realm Knights of the Round Table Hail darken rider defender of our fate Fighting for your freedom, death is no disgrace The visions of a wizard, coming of a thrown The coming of dark ages, sword within a stone (Repeat Chorus)

So Be It In a time of legends and days of old When men wore metal and hearts were bold When fire fills the distance sky And trumpets sound the battle cry Defenders from the Viking hoard Warring from the northern shore With horses running through the night Men in arms prepare to fight When seeking vengeance swords are drawn They meet the foe in the light of dawn While hillsides burn as warriors fall The kingdom says defend the law As lightning strikes the dragon’s tongue By the saints it shall be won With the smash of armor, fire and steel You feel the pain of death, it's real The battle raging all around You know you must stand your ground You fight to win, you live to die With terror in your battle cry The mash of teeth, the bite of steel As blood flows from the sword you wield So you raise your shield, the time has come Your enemies are on the run So Be II So Be It (Repeat Verse I)

Trouble Now tell what's to see It isn't any mystery It's like it used to be You know just what you do to me Carry the load you brought so far Can't let go it's a part of you now How can you remember? How can you forget? The love we knew Was that never spent? (Pre-Chorus) Trouble stay away from me Trouble hey mama now let me be It used to be You wanted to be close to me I tried to make you see I knew that it could never be, no way All that remains is the broken chains Now your wicked lies driving me insane Tried to hold on but I got to let you go Wanted to leave but now I truly know (Chorus) Trouble stay away from my door I can't take it any more Now I said trouble stay away from me Now trouble Now mama let me be Now tell what's to see It isn't any mystery It's like it used to be You know just what you do to me Carry the load you can run so far Can't let go it's a part of you now How can you remember how can you forget The love we knew was that never spent (Repeat Chorus)

about

Formed in the late 1970s under the name Rhanen, they would change their name to Overlorde by 1980. By 1984 the band self-released the now infamous 'Medieval Meta' EP. The release caught the ear of Metal Blade Records owner Brian Slagiel and lead to Overlorde being featured on 1987 Metal Massacre compilation album. The band then recorded a three song demo that was never released and by 1989 the band had faded into obscurity.
Several years later the band once again would begin to play and in March of 2011 'Medieval Metal Too' would be released (under the name Overlorde SR) ; a compilation of early Overlorde material including the cult classic "Medieval Metal' EP.
