Henrik Thøgersen Look at that cover art. Yes, this is early 80s metal homage, but holy hell if these guys don’t take it to another level! Strong catchy melodies are borne aloft by soaring clean vocals, original killer riffs, and rock solid grooves. And with lyrics about death, Satan, and sorcery I can ask for nothing more. All hail Sandstorm! Favorite track: Witchman, Sorcerer Of Satan.

Track Name: Death Is Near
Something’s got a hold of me driving me insane
Living in the shadows of endless pain
I know my days are numbered
I know that death is near
Still i go out fighting cause i have no fear

In the night, stay alive
In the night, slay the light

Somewhere from the darkness
Voices speak to me
Giving me the strength to find the master key
Open up the gates of hell
Going down the devils dell
Face the evil demons of my fears

Deadly silence
Is all you hear

When Death is Near
Death is Near
Visions of my future and past appears
They’re coming from my heart
When Death is Near

Fire strikes like lightning
Burning in my veins
Can’t escape the madness of this evil maze
Death around each corner
Whispers in my ear
Can not run
Can not hide
Must draw my steel

In the night, stay alive
In the night, slay the light

When Death is Near
Death is Near
Visions of my future and past appears
They’re coming from my heart
When Death is Near

Something’s got a hold of me driving me insane
Living in the shadows of endless pain
I know my days are numbered
I know that death is near
Still i go out fighting cause i have no fear

In the night, stay alive
In the night, slay the light

When Death is Near
Death is Near
Visions of my future and past appears
They’re coming from my heart
When Death is Near
Track Name: Whips And Chains
I was born and raised by whips and chains in the early days
I was taught know my place
With cold steel around my feet, do as i’m told and never speak
I could not speak

Behind closed doors, imprisoned all day
Never to see the sun
But at night when the moon light hits my face
My inner demon screams in rage

I was torn and slayed by axe and blade in the later days
I was done with all the pain
With my rage i ripped the chains
Could not run, had to stay
To make them pay

In the moonlight when midnight hour came
No whips or chains were heard
A flash of steel reflected by the moon
Screams were piercing through the night

Whips and chains driving you insane
Whips and chains now you’ve learned two can play this game
Whips and chains driving you insane
Whips and chains now you’ve learned two can play this game
Track Name: Witchman, Sorcerer Of Satan
See the sign of the witchman
Omen in the sky
You have broken the contract
Only get one try
Moment of silence, time to die

See the eyes of the witchman
Glowing in the night
Feel the chill of his breath
Blood turns to ice
Moment of silence, time to die

Feel the fury of the witchman
Black magic spells
The darkest of witchcraft
Straight out of hell

It’s with blood you pay
when you fail the deal

Sorcerer of Satan
Coming for your life
Sorcerer of Satan
Coming for your life

See the eyes of the witchman
Glowing in the night
Feel the chill of his breath
Blood turns to ice

It’s with blood you pay
when you fail the deal

Sorcerer of Satan
Coming for your life
Sorcerer of Satan
Coming for your life
Sorcerer of Satan

Witchman will fly on this walpurgis night
There’s no escape from his satanic rite
He makes the skin fall off your bones
Rotting flesh, a living ghost

See the sign of the witchman
Omen in the sky
You have broken the contract
Only get one try
Moment of silence, time to dien
Track Name: Denizen Of Hell
Denizen of hell

No matter who you are or where you’re from
I wanna know where does your soul belong
If there’s a heaven or a hell below
I wanna know where do you want to go

The gates are always open down below
When you’re ready to decide

Denizen, denizen of hell
Denizen, evil from hell
Denizen, denizen of hell
Denizen, of hell

No matter who you are or where you’re from
I gotta know where does your soul belong
If there’s a heaven or a hell below
I wanna know where do you want to go

Denizen, denizen of hell
Denizen, evil from hell
Denizen, denizen of hell
Denizen, of hell

Denizen, denizen of hell
Denizen, evil from hell
Denizen, denizen, denizen of hell
Denizen, evil from hell
Denizen, denizen of hell
Denizen, of hell
Track Name: Hymn To The Hell Knights
I’m going out, tonight is the hell night
Gonna give it up, I’m going to give’r

It’s a long night so hold on tight
Cause when the hammer strikes
You realize that you’re destined to go down in this war
In the meantime
I don’t know what it’s for but i’m sure
Gonna get another glass or more

The battle hymn is gonna reach you
Shot to kill
The oath is sacred so kneel

You, a hell knight born to rule
This night of black and brew
You, a hell knight born to rule
All hail the crew
Who live a hell night through

I’m going out, tonight is the hell night
Gonna give it up, I’m going to give’r

It’s a long night so hold on tight
Cause when the hell night calls
Setts it of for a journey to the end of the dawn
In the meantime
I don’t know what it’s for but i’m sure
Gonna get another glass or more

The battle hymn is gonna reach you
Shot to kill
The oath is sacred so kneel

You, a hell knight born to rule
This night of black and brew
You, a hell knight born to rule
All hail the crew
Who live a hell night through

In to the night and through the dawn
For those who ride hell night is upon

You, a hell knight born to rule
This night of black and brew
You, a hell knight born to rule
All hail the crew
Who live a hell night through
Track Name: Lucia, Warrior Of Light
I was up before the dawn
Waiting for the light of the sun to be born
I was waiting for them all
Watching the shadows up on the wall

This is the time
The moment has come to strike
These are the lights
That reveals in the darkest hour

The day of darkness has begun
She gives us power to carry on
Warrior of light and gold
Slaying the night with her blazing sword

This is the time
The moment has come to strike
These are the lights
That reveals in the darkest hour

Lucias lights burning bright
I don’t know whats cooking but i sure want a bite
In the misty morning i hear the sirens call
My spirit is rising for the bright shining star
Bright shining star

Warrior of light and gold
Slaying the night with her blazing sword

Lucias lights burning bright
I don’t know whats cooking but i sure want a bite
In the misty morning i hear the sirens call
My spirit is rising for the bright shining star

Lucias lights burning bright
I don’t know whats cooking but i sure want a bite
In the misty morning i hear the sirens call
My spirit is rising for the bright shining star

I was up before the dawn
Waiting for the light of the sun to be born
