The Call 03:01
Are you ready? To answer the call You might be alone From the start through it all Can you hear it? The mighty roaring call It pulls you through the threshold Pulls you through the threshold And you're going where you've never gone before you've never gone before And you're going where you'd never thought you'd go never thought you'd go So here you go and here you go and on and on and on it goes To the known to the great unknown to the great unknown Here you go Here you go and on and on and on it goes To the known to the great unknown to the great unknown And you're going where you'd never thought you'd go never thought you'd go

Libera Me 02:59
Libera me oh Domine Death has got a hold on me (libera me) Oh Death can feel his ice cold grip on me (Libera me oh Domine) This war has taken a toll on me (libera me) These battle scars have no hope of healing Libera me, Libera me,Libera me Domine Save Me, Free Me Libera me, Libera me,Libera me Domine And on that day of rage and misery I’ll cry out when death comes for me Libera me, Libera me,Libera me Domine

When you break the truth down When you dig deeper than you'd ever though you'd go When you tear apart the lies Be careful what you find Be careful what you find This endless pursuit threatens to consume me With every step I take the closer I get, the closer I get With an ear to the ground I'll find it I'll find it With a knee to the ground No I wont stop no I wont stop Whatever it takes whatever it takes I won't leave a stone unturned no I wont leave a stone unturned When the truth breaks you down When the truth breaks you

Its for the greater good and a lust for blood Its not a loss of control I'm in control yes I'm control Say goodbye Say goodnight The end is near Don't look away Meet your maker Meet your maker Meet your maker Been reading all the signs The cards they never lie The Tower always show and I always know I want you to know Say goodbye Say goodnight The end is near Don't look away Meet your maker Meet your maker Meet your maker

They call me bringer of death They call me warrior Goddess I bring destruction cant you hear the cries? I give my order and they always comply You either have my favor Or you don't Im not afraid to show Who the blessed ones are and whose my foe but they all see The wrath of a warrior

Wicked Ways 03:33
Every move you make Every little thing you say I see straight through your lies and all of your mistakes All of your mistakes All the lies you say I see your evil heart I feel your chilling hate I fear evil presence and your wicked wicked ways Your wicked wicked ways No mourning No crying Only death and pain The old order of things passed away All of your mistakes All the lies you say I see your evil heart I feel your chilling hate I fear evil presence and your wicked wicked ways Your wicked wicked ways

Call me a fool I never learn I touch the fire just to feel the burn But I don't, I dont feel the pain I'll just touch the fire again I'm not scared of the blaze I watch the flames wash over me like an old friend Like we're old friends I'll run right towards the blaze And I'll embrace the flame The smoke and haze
8.
Ruined 02:30
Like a flower that's been crumbled Like a ocean that's been drained Like a flame that's been extinguished I am ruined, I'll never be the same Like a song that's been forgoten Like a man that has no name Like a babe that has no mother I am ruined, I'll never be the same So forget me until I take my vengeance When the storm comes then you'll recall my name Then you'll know the pain of ruin And you'll never be the same Then you'll know the pain of ruin And you'll never be the same I'll never be - you ruined me You're ruin too, you're ruined too I'll ruin you, you're ruined too

Dona Nobis 02:24
So sweetly she walks to go find her prey wasn't always a killer but she sure is today the past has nothing for you only sadness and ghosts leave the dead to death they will always be so Come walk with me move forward with me we'll leave behind this trail to misery heard the voice of angels where have they all gone? who can grant us peace, when we cant hear their song Dona Nobis Pacem No more, no more Dona Nobis Pacem No more, no more
10.
Ode to Joy 02:14
Joyful Joyful we adore thee God of glory, Lord of love Hearts unfold like flowers before thee Hail thee as the sun above Melt the clouds of sin and sadness Drive the dark of doubt away Giver of immortal gladness Fill us with the light of day Joyful Drive the doubt away Joyful Drive the doubt away

about

Requiems are my favorite form of classical music. I had the opportunity of singing Faure's Requiem in high school and since then have gotten to sing the Requiems from Faure, Mozart, Verdi and Brahms with the Minnesota Orchestra.

While this album does have a few typical movements of a Requiem, it does not by any means follow a typical Requiem mass form. This is a dark and dramatic collection of songs inspired by death and bits of mythology.
