J.A. Colmont I met the Singer and the keyboard player in Barcelona as I played 3 years ago with my band. I can tell you for sure that this band is great, the music is exactly what a band of this kind should be. People make always the mistake comparing bands with other ones. This band is authentic and knows how to make their music, not being boring for listeners of this genre. Favorite track: Harvest Of Deceit.

Unholy Quest This album (although short) really packs a sucker punch to the face and a swift kick to the nuts. Frozen Shield combines elements of folk, viking and death metal with ease. I think the songwriting and lyrical content is absolutely brilliant!! Add this to your collection ASAP Favorite track: Green Beards.

Track Name: Harvest Of Deceit
Harvest of deceit
Fading honesty


Many nights we've seen
since the Grey War begun
treachery and lies
unleashed the strife

The lord of the highlands
stole from our merchants
Despair! Fire! Hate!
Broke our alliance
Triggered the death


Silently we stalk into the forest
Slay them! Those are men from the highlands!
We patrol through the dismal hazy swamp in search for blood!
Blood has stained our souls
Guilt seeks me
Duty guides me here!
Where justice's gone!
We won't rest 'till this cruel war is over!


Should i regret the things that i've done?
All the grief that i've caused has been justified?

Chorus
“What have you done?
Your vengeance went so wrong
Our wives cry for our loss
When a man breathes out his last air
wanders in a mournful existence”


Harvest of deceit
Fading honesty


Despite the guilt
our task must be fulfilled
Freight sabotage,
burn everything they need.
Too many times we've fought
How many lives has taken this fog?

(Solo: Marc)

Chorus
“What have you done?
Your vengeance went so wrong
Our wives cry for our loss
When a man breathes out his last air
wanders in a mournful existence”

(Solo: Isaac)
Track Name: Green Beards
Axes! Thrown from the green
a Viking clan hides between the leaves
Nature guides their sword’s will
to protect the eternal life

Foreigners are [welcomed] with deadly traps
distracted at first, then stabbed from behind
Their duty is to defend the forest
and it will give back all its might


Chorus
"They are keepers of the magic river named Life
Hiding into bushes they wait to attack
and they won’t fall, oh, they won’t fall
'cause while they’re in the wooden land
for sure they’ll never fall'


Hey!


Archers aiming accurately
following the outsiders with their sight
Their arrows fly through the leafy wood
to finally strike and end their life

Drinking water from the river
make the warriors increase their skills
People who dare to attack the woods
are devoured by sand tied by roots


Chorus
"They are keepers of the magic river named Life
Hiding into bushes they wait to attack
and they won’t fall, oh, they won’t fall
'cause while they’re in the wooden land
for sure they’ll never fall'


We were used to be weak men
avoiding the cruel battlefield
Lots of us could die in there
and we appreciate our lives

Now the forest gives us strength
and we can frighten the enemy
we attack between the shadows
we hoard lots of treasures


Now, the weak have a chance,
a glare of light,
that encourage them to fight.
It’s not easy to fight against
what you can’t see,
against the forest’s will


Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey! x4


The forest belongs to us!
trunks, leaves and grass!
branches, bushes, stones!
streams that give us life!


(Solo: Marc)

(Solo: Isaac)


Chorus x2
"They are keepers of the magic river named Life
Hiding into bushes they wait to attack
and they won’t fall, oh, they won’t fall
'cause while they’re in the wooden land
for sure they’ll never fall'
Track Name: Path To Oblivion
Tormented by memories of the past
He faces up his nightmares
Getting lost in the forgotten forest
armed with sadness, rage and hate
seeking the path of oblivion


Chorus
'Long is the path
where ships cannot reach
and your feet
cannot guide
Oh oh oh'


Remembering the face of his dead wife
Remembering the cries of his new born child
Remembering the laughs of his rivals
Remembering the flames burn his natal land

Grasping the sword fighting against all creatures
Among the shadows drowns his hate with blood
waiting to obliterate the past
although he knows in this forest there’s nothing but death


Trying to find the way to follow
Feeling hatred with a heart
that is an empty hollow
hope has no meaning for him
because all he has lost


Chorus
'Long is the path
where ships cannot reach
and your feet
cannot guide
Oh oh oh'

(Solo: Marc)

After years of suffering
the call of his name
pronounced by ancient souls
lying all along the forgotten forest
finally makes him realize
that he should be dead


Guided by the ancient souls
He sticks the sword in his heart
Not fearing pain nor his death
he finally gets what he wants
