500 tanks, lined up to advance Attack upon the Hindenburg Line At dawn we embark, in defence of France This day we break the empire’s spine Thousand gun barrage, marks the start of assault Crossing triple belts of barbed wire Pathways are cleared, closing in on Havrincourt Time to set the ramparts afire We’re the Tank Corps unleashed We creep across the field Leaving death in our wake We’re the Tank Corps unleashed You will face defeat No one stands in our way Germans on alert, our attack anticipated Fighting on, we reach Bourlon Woods Tanks roll through, in support of infantry Our power; combination of arms We’re the Tank Corps unleashed We creep across the field Leaving death in our wake We’re the Tank Corps unleashed You will face defeat No one stands in our way Breakthrough complete, ring the bells of victory Nothing halts this armoured attack Target overrun, mark the ridge with our flag Commanded to dig in and hold on We’re the Tank Corps unleashed We creep across the field Leaving death in our wake We’re the Tank Corps unleashed You will face defeat No one stands in our way We’re the Tank Corps unleashed You’ll be the first to flee When the ground starts to shake We’re the Tank Corps unleashed Thirty tonnes of steel Sends you to an early grave Sent onward for destruction Push back fortifications Leave the front in desolation As we fight for liberation This is war, nothing but war War, nothing but war Through mud and blood The Tank Corps fights on Through mud and blood To the green fields beyond

Trapped and drowning under wires Shell holes filled with flesh Beyond the aid of fellow soldiers Moaning gasps, the last of breaths Torso slashed by shrapnel Paralyzed I fell Underneath the mud and metal Surrounded by remains Black twisted limbs Human forms burst and brutalized Carcasses littering this blood soaked ground Skeletal fingers reach for last requests To be remembered, their final behest A body digested by its own saliva In the mouth of the earth Innards spread throughout the marshlands A domain fed by gore Immersed in a nightmare of my own undoing My sanity lost in the bog Nostrils filled to the breadth by cancer As the mire gives birth Revealing new constructs, abhorrent cadavers Undeath created, a soldier possessed I see them rise, the bodies of the lost, the murdered, dismembered Abandoned men, dreamless sleep in winter’s frost, no one will be remembered Once fallen in the battlefield, never seen again, cries for aid fall upon deaf ears Blood clots my throat and eyes turn white I drown in a pool of severed limbs A slow descent, I feel them clawing at my skin Fall into the dark of our lost cause As toxins penetrate, flesh and sinew contract Smoke and gas envelopes us all Surrounded by remains Black twisted limbs

Mortal dread masked by bravery The faceless stand before us Broken bones to be rattled and thrown The herd of steel breaks through Into the fray Addiction to bloodshed Rip out their living guts Third army men We will not falter We will never fail Fresh made corpses crack beneath the treads Juices of the dead Armoured warfare, machinery of death Grease the wheels with blood Tons of armor, Sherman tanks Victory lies at hand Heading home, through Berlin In the heart of the German fatherland Tracks drenched in blood Forwards we surge The stench of guts Announce our scourge Men are at march Always onwards Never holding ground Rout our foes German salient Close up on the Rhine Third army men Kill every single Kraut Tracks drenched in blood Forwards we surge The stench of guts Announce our scourge A feast of their flesh The ravens we serve In the wastelands of slaughter Pray we hold our nerve A shallow grave Defiled and deprived Display of bones Eaten barely alive Patton’s stalwart men Breach the German borders Cowards left behind Only brave obey orders Way back home, on native soil The weak didn’t heed the call Real men, wrought by war The third army stands tall

Armored beast Zaamurets!

Stand steadfast, the Reds are closing in We've got to hold out, retreat from Tali Fierce artillery, situation dire Secure the frontline, lay low and fire As the sun begins to rise, artillery strikes Chaos, as they break through all sides Hold the VKT-line, else we're cut off and surrounded Waiting for reinforcements to turn the tide Counterstrikes ensue, the panzers have arrived All resistance, now ill-advised Forcing their retreat, all efforts unmade Obliterate the Soviet brigade Vastly outnumbered three to one This is where men are made and undone Where death and glory walks hand in hand They will not break this line, they will not take this land Reorganization commences Assemble what's left to the trenches Vastly outnumbered three to one This is where men are made and undone Where death and glory walks hand in hand They will not break this line, they will not take this land. Meager forces will defend As they advance, is there no end? Futile attempts marked for death We stand victorious, with nothing left

Shtrafbat 03:30
Penal battalion instated Bolster the Eastern Front By order 227 We’re sent to bear the brunt A death sentence recruitment Shtrafbat means the end Convict infantry A subspecies of man Human decoy soldiers Mine clearing personnel Cheapest cannon fodder Hear the ring of my death knell Shtrafbat! Sentenced to - Shtrafbat! My crimes cleansed in - Shtrafbat! Sentenced to - Shtrafbat! My crimes cleansed in blood Used to lessen casualties The Red soldiers are spared Gulags fuel the industry The killing shifting gear Perpetual deployment Our service never ends Empty promises are given That some of us may live Obedience comes natural With nothing left to give A death sentence recruitment Shtrafbat means the end Convict Infantry A subspecies of men Disgraced Soviet officers Cowards prone to flight Stripped of rank and honour We can’t escape our plight Advancing in a frenzy My burning eyes see red Into the MG’s fire Atonement found in led Shtrafbat! Sentenced to - Shtrafbat! My crimes are cleansed in blood

Meat Grinder 04:26
Just cogs in a great machine Victims of a brutal doctrine Pulverised by artillery Disintegrated company Three hundred days of hell Every hour, another shell Lost the earthly patina which masks the living soul Verdun bloodbath Fallen rotting Flesh minced mud Our blood is clotting Into the meat grinder Butchering the worn Into the meat grinder Slaughter carries on Front lines of the stalemate Futile fight for pride Remaining in a hellstate, we’re told “They shall not pass!” Man - a solemn offering Future of our sons Losing foothold in the trench I dream of home no more Verdun bloodbath Fallen rotting Flesh minced mud Our blood is clotting Into the meat grinder Butchering the worn Into the meat grinder Slaughter carries on

Lunge into void Heading for front line, supply trains behind Sherman M4’s 11th Armored Division of tanks Right flank attack Gun of a Panzer V Armored casket Broken hull, boiling flesh, twisted remains Run the gauntlet Facing Panzer machines Human slaughter Burning grave Armed tilt-rod fuze A 43 Tellermine Anti-tank blast Blown to pieces, with total crew loss Run the gauntlet Facing Panzer machines Human slaughter Burning grave Hot projectile Walls glowing red Molten metal Burning grave Panzerfaust sacrifice Burning grave Run the gauntlet Facing Panzer machines Human slaughter Burning grave Hot projectile Walls glowing red Molten metal Burning grave Panzerfaust sacrifice

Deadly plague, unhindered outbreak Population decimated Warmachines upon your borders Plead for mercy, we follow orders Seas of blood and skies of ash Mushroom cloud upon your mass Religious fanatics, end-times are marching Zealous soldiers, bereft of conscience Blackened clouds, storms are brewing Taste the salted earth Poisoned rain and boiling waters Wherever death may come Life ends Undertaking global destruction Shattering infliction, agony induction Final moment of civilization You will be no more Atomic winds, radiation sears Ruined ecology, worst of your fears No one survived to witness the end All that is left Bones of the conquered Bones of the conquered Bones Raze their cities, all shall collapse Abolish their progress, of aeons elapsed Lifecycles lost, total extinction Burning hatred, beyond comprehension A fatal strike, disastrous event The end is nigh, warheads are sent Wind clears the smoke, from rubble and stones. We shall walk upon these bones Of the conquered

A concealed force Serving in the north Maneuvers untracked Predator of the depths Observing the void Holding our breaths Maintaining course Carrying your death We purge, we cleanse We scour the oceans Shaping your aqueous grave Beneath freezing waves Sensors cry havoc, alarms go red In a dance of death amidst unsuspecting foes Overwhelmed, but in combat we excel Men, elevate yourselves! Open hatches wide, fire away! Serving as the right hand of nature’s wrath A necessary evil, our chosen path We enlist, to supply the abyss Orders received, you are dismissed The cold embrace, their despair It doesn’t matter, for all we care This is warfare The reason we’re here In the distant dark, vague silhouettes Maimed, submerging slow Nameless shadows united in death Forever lost in the great nothing below We watch from afar, the ensuing chaos The suffering, the screams, echoes across the waves We've reached our goal, once the endless ocean swallows you whole We purge, we cleanse We scour the oceans Shaping your aqueous grave Beneath the freezing waves As fast as we came, we make away With haste, live to fight another day But know that the deep, will have its way Our duty, our demise, our call The deep will claim us all The deep will claim us all Claim us all
