Crimson Dawn Italy

D. Beretta (Drakkar) and E. Rastelli (Crown of Autumn) created Crimson Dawn in 2005. After a demo-CD, the project was shelved. In 2008, Dario (guitar) made the decision to resurrect it with L. Lucchini (drums), A. Pecere (vocals), E. Laghi (keys), A. Reggiani Romagnoli (bass) and M. Rusconi (guitar). The band has released one album and one EP so far and played a few shows across Europe. ... more

Track Name: Forge Of The Aeons
Instrumental
Track Name: Tower Of Sin
In a land shrouded in darkness
Lives a man whose every dream
Is creating a new nightmare
In a place where all is grim

It's the trial of a lifetime
In the halls of what could be
If you yield into temptation
From his clutches you won't flee

Bridge:
"Burn the past, enjoy the slumber!", the words echo into my mind
Memory has come to my door, to knock upon my yesterdays and free me

Chorus:
From the Tower of Sin that is rising
The Tower of Sin
The Tower of Sin never shining
The Tower of Sin

Leads: Dario/Lele/Dario/Lele

Everything your heart desires
You will find behind its walls
In exchange for blood and fire
That will rain upon your soul

Bridge:
"Burn the past, enjoy the slumber!", the words echo into my mind
Memory has come to my door, to knock upon my yesterdays and free me

Chorus:
From the Tower of Sin that is rising
The Tower of Sin
The Tower of Sin never shining
The Tower of Sin
Track Name: March Of The Masters Of Doom
Before the Age of Glory, before the Dawn of War
Their fangs were telling stories like you've never known
So old, so wise but wild, a legacy that's lost
Until the final hour will rise upon us all

Chorus:
And when the end is coming
Something will shine in your endless mind
Keep it alive, when destiny looms
This is the march of the Masters of Doom!

A step resounding louder than thunder from the sky
Heralds of Light and Darkness, unprecedented might
Asleep inside the conscience of every son of man
When all the world is burning they will rise again

Chorus:
And when the end is coming
Something will shine in your endless mind
Keep it alive, when destiny looms
This is the march of the Masters of Doom!

Lead: Dario

Take the heritage of our land
Watch it rise like a flag once again
Feed the flame
Flesh and bones to be torn asunder

From a steel sky the clouds will begin
To give way to the strongest of winds
Changing form
Raining down with a holy thunderstorm


Before the Age of Glory, before the Dawn of War
Their fangs were telling stories like you've never known
So old, so wise but wild, a legacy that's lost
Until the final hour will rise upon us all

Chorus:
And when the end is coming
Something will shine in your endless mind
Keep it alive, when destiny looms
This is the march of the Masters of Doom!
Track Name: Black Waters
BLACK WATERS

Part I: Adrift

Black waters down below
Black skies above
Forsaken by the gods
I sail alone

I see a storm that is rising
I'm ready to die
But voices from the depths
Are whispering in the blight

Part II: A Token of Wrath

The time has come to take your revenge
Become the tool of our discontent
A holy engine of war fueled by hate
All you must do is forget, forfeit your name

Chorus:
My makers' blessing might have brought me to this point
Now I have to make a choice
Will I listen to their voice?
My dreams were shattered like a frozen song of pain
Now I'm asked to make a change
And to sacrifice my name

The Gods of War await for my word
“Just say it now, and your fate will unfold!
Accept this gift, this token of wrath
We are the ones whose great hands have forged your path!”

Chorus:
My makers' blessing might have brought me to this point
Now I have to make a choice
Will I listen to their voice?
My dreams were shattered like a frozen song of pain
Now I'm asked to make a change
And to sacrifice my name

Lead: Dario

Part III: Forgiveness

Lead: Marco

Somewhere into the mist, there's another song I can hear
Asking me to forgive and welcome the peace she can give
"Break the circle now, 'lest you be their pawn once again"
And I feel, somehow, she speaks as my beloved who's dead

Masters of war! I won't play your game!
You've written my road: you were the ones who created my pain!

Part IV. Into The Haze

Chorus:
My makers' blessing might have brought me to this point
Now I know what is my choice
I won't listen to their voice
My nightmares shattered like a frozen song of pain
Now it's time to sail away
Free at last, into the haze
Track Name: The Haunted Monastery
Instrumental
Track Name: Scourge Of The Dead
The bloody vessel of my beliefs
The darkest blade you can ever wield
Lighted by fires of crimson red
A holy sign for the dead to dread!

Bridge:
On your knees
You will bow!
Heartless beast
Vile and foul

Chorus:
Faithful and true to my word
The living dead to purge
Bodies deprived of a soul
I'll purify and burn

I breathe my spells through the dungeons dim
Eradicate the black thorns of sin
Those greenish lifeless eyes in the dark
They yearn to bite and feed on my heart

Bridge:
On your knees
You will bow!
Heartless beast
Vile and foul

Chorus:
Faithful and true to my word
The living dead to purge
Bodies deprived of a soul
I'll purify and burn

Leads: Dario/Lele

I summon thee, heralds of the light
Entangle me with thy grace and might
Into the ecstasy of the fray
I shall annihilate, strike and slay!

Bridge:
On your knees
You will bow!
Heartless beast
Vile and foul

Chorus:
Faithful and true to my word
The living dead to purge
Bodies deprived of a soul
I'll purify and burn
Track Name: Crimson Dawn
The sun is rising now
And the mist is low on the ground
Scarlet is the morning tide
While we yearn for our time

Bridge 1:
Here on the hills on fate
With bows and swords in hand
We stand and we await
The armies of the dead

Chorus:
Crimson Dawn
Will arise
Blood will stain
Our skies

The air is wet and cold
It burns my tormented soul
This frightful moment never flies
In time it's crystallized

Bridge 2:
For our newborn sons
We will forget all fears
For everything we love
We'll wipe away all tears

Chorus:
Crimson Dawn
Will arise
Blood will stain
Our skies

It's time to defend
What we have dreamt, what we have prayed God for
It's time to defend
What we have built with our heart and soul

Lead: Dario

Bridge 1:
Here on the hills on fate
With bows and swords in hand
We stand and we await
The armies of the dead

Chorus:
Crimson Dawn
Will arise
Blood will stain
Our skies
Track Name: Cosmic Death
When dreaming stars collide
Flame burns the heavens, then it dies
Forlorn's the wheel of time
And thus the ages, they subside

Lead: Marco

Marble walls
Taller than anything you've ever seen
Angles impossible
Perspectives you wouldn't believe
Gloomy vaults
Deeper than anything you've ever seen
Strange patterns on the floor
To open the gates to the unknown

Chorus:
That is not dead
Which can eternal lie
And with strange aeons
Even death may die

Awaiting in their sleep
In dark dimensions, endless time
Forgotten, they stand still
Malicious horrors, they will rise

Godlike ones
Greater than anything you've ever seen
Shapeless beings
With powers you wouldn't believe
Restless minds
More twisted than anything you've ever seen
Haunting the void beyond
Eager to swallow your soul

Chorus:
That is not dead
Which can eternal lie
And with strange aeons
Even death may die

Leads: Dario/Marco

Chorus:
That is not dead
Which can eternal lie
And with strange aeons
Even death may die
Track Name: Siege At The Golden Citadel
Part I: The Coming Of Doom

In the embers of the sun, they are unleashing their flood
On these walls of carved gold, that we will stain with their blood
Black clouds on the horizon foretold the coming of doom
Behold! Below the towers roses of darkness they bloom
Riders clad in scarlet red, led by the Tyrant of Frost
Come to plunder and enslave, to take possess of our homes
He believes he can be King, he doesn't know that this war
Is the last he’ll ever see, for his demeanor he'll burn

Part II: Before The Storm

Bridge 1:
And thus the armies stand enthralled in this unquiet calm
That has filled the valley before the war
All united we're invoking the power of the gods
For never to fall

Chorus 1:
Today we will keep our vow
It's siege at the Golden Citadel
We'll never deny and bow
It's siege at the Golden Citadel

Part III: The Last Banquet

Lead: Marco

Part IV: Blood On The Sand

We are the bane of our black foe
There is no mercy for the dark ones
Never again shall they dare to come!
Brothers of mine, it’s time to ride
Arrows in flight, blood on the sand
Never again shall they blaspheme this land!

Part V: Never To Fall

Bridge 1:
And thus the armies stand enthralled in this unquiet calm
That has filled the valley before the war
All united we're invoking the power of the gods
For never to fall

Bridge 2:
Death is a deity’s reward when it treads on the ground
of our ancestors with no reverence.
Like battle anchorites we keep silence beside the sound
of their decadence.

Chorus 1:
Today we will keep our vow
It's siege at the Golden Citadel
We'll never deny and bow
It's siege at the Golden Citadel
Chorus 2:

The black tabernacle falls,
away from the golden citadel.
Now, crystalline stars enthrall
our souls and the golden citadel…

Leads: Dario/Lele/Dario/Lele/Dario
