Shocking Its Prey

antares8001 An amazing record that just screams NWOBHM. Awesome guitars and a talented vocalist whose high pitched screams would probably make Rob Halford and King Diamond jealous, not to mention that it is very well produced and mixed. This quickly became one of my favorite albums of the 2010s and I have no idea how this band is not better known. Favorite track: Heathen's Revenge.

Matthew Rukgaber "Why do I love this record?" Because it is shreds. Because it is NWOBHM of the highest order. Because it sounds just like that cover art. And because the vocals have the power and range of Rob Halford. It makes me want to buy a spiked forearm bracer. Favorite track: Night Walker.

Track Name: Volture
Volture

Wings of steel glow with power
Current pulses through its veins
Electric butcher eyes its victim
The raptor's deadly fury unchained

Piercing cries now fill the air
You can hear it everywhere
Razor talons shocking its prey
As the Volture takes your life away

Fearsome shrieks resound like thunder
Surging energy cuts like a knife
High voltage death flying fast as lightning
Swooping down to end your life

Piercing cries now fill the air
You can hear it everywhere
Laser talons shocking its prey
As the Volture takes your life away

Piercing cries now fill the air
You can hear it everywhere
Razor talons shocking its prey
As the Volture takes your life away
Track Name: Heavy Metal Machine
Heavy Metal Machine

Racing down the freeway, ripping through the night
Neck-snapping velocity, no end in sight...

For the cybernetic champion the law can never catch
Though they try to pace him, his speed they cannot match
Burning up the asphalt, chrome wheels gleaming bright
Nitrous fuel injection, feel the engine’s might

Futuristic cylinders, ready to explode
Accelerating juggernaut, ruler of the road

Moving at light speed, Heavy Metal Machine
Vanquisher supreme, Heavy Metal Machine

Pedal to the metal, steel attack
Bolting fast as lightning, don’t look back

Shifting gears as time slows down
Ion thrusters shake the ground
Pounding shock waves crack the air
Swirling dust clouds everywhere

Screaming past the danger zone, heartbeats palpitate
Fearless mach 5 maniac, always tempting fate

Moving at light speed, Heavy Metal Machine
Vanquisher supreme, Heavy Metal Machine
Moving at light speed, Heavy Metal Machine
Vanquisher supreme, Heavy Metal Machine
Track Name: The Horde
The Horde

Howls pierce the chilling silence, echoes of creatures fill the air
Lost in a vale of shadows, you feel their presence everywhere

Praying your god will not forsake
Dormant tormentors now awake
Knowing your very soul they’ll take

Caught within the grip of fear
Ancient evils drawing near

Running in the night, mind twisted in fright, no haven in sight
Horrors now await, they will seal your fate, nothing can abate...

Anguished thoughts burn through your brain
Terror driving you insane
Soon the bloodshed will begin
Vicious hell spawn closing in

Running in the night, mind twisted in fright, no haven in sight
Horrors now await, they will seal your fate, nothing can abate...
The Horde

Forced to play their deadly game
Now the Devil calls your name

Running in the night, mind twisted in fright, no haven in sight
Horrors now await, they will seal your fate, nothing can abate...
The Horde
Track Name: Night Walker
Night Walker

Screams in the night, as he takes another life
Hearts pound as victims flee in vain
So afraid, you can't escape the blade
As it slices through you, feel your final pain

End is near, your mind is racked with fear
Terror‘s here, the Night Walker's coming

Evil will, compelling him to kill
The mask he wears, it hides a vacant stare
No remorse as the slaughter takes its course
If you hear his footsteps, best beware

End is near, your mind is racked with fear
Terror’s here, the Night Walker's coming

You can't stand and face him, don't even try
There's no way to stop him, his spirit cannot die

Blood flows free, amidst the killing spree
Sharpened edges tear through flesh and bone
Death has won, his grisly work is done
He disappears back into the unknown

End is near, your mind is racked with fear
Terror’s here, the Night Walker's coming
Track Name: Cheap Thrillz
Cheap Thrillz

After the show, backstage I wait for you
To come around like I know you're bound to do
Eyes filled with lust and a body built for sin
She just can't wait for the action to begin

Gettin' down and dirty, I'm always discreet
She falls down to her knees and awaits my treat
She knows she's been a bad girl, begging me to spank
Money shot deposited right into her bank

Can't get no satisfaction from plastic toys
Takes some real equipment for this child to make some noise

Cheap Thrillz - the best things in life are free
Cheap Thrillz - it keeps her coming back to me

Bedroom walls are shakin' - yeah, she likes it rough
Insatiable desire, she just can't get enough
We dance between the sheets inside her carnal den
Next time I come to town we'll do it once again

Cheap Thrillz - the best things in life are free
Cheap Thrillz - it keeps her coming back to me
Cheap Thrillz - the best things in life are free
Cheap Thrillz - it keeps her coming back to me
Track Name: Heathen's Revenge
Heathen's Revenge

It seems that now my life is running out of time
This deadly cancer seeks to take me in my prime
And as I lay and wait for darkness to descend
I curse the god that brought me to an early end

I chant the cryptic verses, invoking gruesome death
I'm now in league with Satan, he guides my every breath
Knowing my incantations bring agony and woe
Gives my heart satisfaction and dulls the pain I know
The Prince of Darkness chose me to execute his plans
To cause mayhem and slaughter, their blood is on my hands
This carnage my atonement, libations to the Beast
Eternal life is granted, from death I'll be released

Innocents are torn in half, bodies lay in piles
The smoking ruins of the land can be seen for miles

Horrid legions summoned to the fray
Twisted demons sent from Hell to slay
Mankind's existence fades away
The human race I willfully betray

Immortality my curse, arrogance to blame
My eternal soul will burn forever in the flames

Horrid legions summoned to the fray
Twisted demons sent from Hell to slay
Mankind's existence fades away
The human race I willfully betray
