[Chant] This is the march of the Gore-Stained Axe Tribe Raise your axe, raise your shield, raise your Tusks high! We are the Warriors of the Gore-Stained Axe Tribe We fight to live or die - For the Tribe! For the Tribe! If we live, we live to fight another day. If we die then it's off to stay in the hall, in the hall, of the Ancestors Where their skulls line the walls! [Refrain1] I raise my Tusks to you, warriors of forgotten time Ancestors fallen in battle, for you I make the sign. [Chant] This is the march of the Gore-Stained Axe Tribe Raise your axe, raise your shield, raise your Tusks high! We are the Warriors of the Gore-Stained Axe Tribe We fight to live or die - For the Tribe! For the Tribe! If we live, we live to fight another day. If we die then it's off to stay in the hall, in the hall, of the Ancestors Where their skulls line the walls! [Refrain2] My spirit soars back through the mists of time. To Grendel standing on the hill. Beset on all sides by a sea of enemies. For him, We make the sign! [Story] It was In the Age of the Goat, Year of the Manticore Invaders came to rape and slave To steal our caves, their golden veins And gild their cities with this shame. Justified by their Book of Lies Foul alliance - Elves, Dwarves, and Men Dressed up their greed as noble deeds. Legends sang them heroes in end. The Agromegh, He stood his ground, with hand on axe he vowed His progeny, eternity to serve the Dragon's Ancient Ways He spoke the words He made the sign Dragon awoke and turned the battle tide With the lightning that slashed across the sky Blood, Screams and Gore - the Founding! [Chant] This is the march of the Gore-Stained Axe Tribe Raise your axe, raise your shield, raise your Tusks high! We are the Warriors of the Gore-Stained Axe Tribe We fight to live or die - For the Tribe! For the Tribe! If we live, we live to fight another day. If we die then it's off to stay in the hall, in the hall, of the Ancestors Where their skulls line the walls! [Outro] This is the march of the Gore-Stained Axe Tribe Raise your axe, raise your shield, raise your Tusks high! This is the march of the Gore-Stained Axe Tribe Raise your axe, raise your shield, raise your Tusks high! We are the Warriors of the Gore-Stained Axe Tribe We fight to live or die - For the Tribe! For the Tribe! We are the Warriors of the Gore-Stained Axe Tribe We fight to live or die - For the Tribe! For the Tribe!

"Learn ye now the lore of The Doom that Came to Trito Craa Sertrob." Trito Craa Sertrob Dominates the sea A fortress of brutal majesty Ancestral home, Twin Blades Tribe On its walls invaders died. Spires of Blackened steal stabbing toward the sky Envied by the Kingdoms, the Urklud's pride Lord of Fish Lanes, Marauder's Scourge Never fell by siege Or in war One New Moon Night A Black Ship came Ambassadors of the Pallid King entered the bay. With gifts in hand, Brought drought relief "An elixer sick stock," claimed the Yellow-Robed Priests of the Pestilent Sign. Black Ship's berth heralds demise Hunch-backed wizards; green glass eyes Chanting Lies - "Lloigor Rise!" With Jaws of the Gold, those hideous Masks Like insects buzz about their sinister tasks Hissing, spraying, murderous mist Alchemical Death, Treachery's poisoned gift For the once mighty orcs of the Twin Blades Tribe The card is dealt -- the Black Ship! Vomiting blood, brain sickening, black scabs on skin Entrails rupturing The Heaving Death, Necromancy, Dark Sorcery Rhyme-construed enemy Breeds in the Mind, spreads through the Mist Unholy Disease How can I fight... ...a foe... ...I can't see!?!?!? Let the red dawn surmise What we shall do When this blue starlight dies And all is through -- R.W. Chambers The Yellow Sign Everywhere an eye turned to see Brutal violence and infighting Once united orcs come undone By demons weaving spells with mist wands Civil war, tribal suicide Spellbinding words to conquer and divide Tusk against Tusk, rising falling blades Brother killing brother another orc tribe fades That New Moon Night When the Black Ship came Ambassadors of the Pallid King Whispered their say With twisted words Offering relief But Madness reigned that night, whence came the Yellow-Robed Priests of the Pestilent Sign Black Ship's Berth heralds demise Hunch-backed wizards, green glass eyes Chanting lies - "Lloigor Rise!" With jaws of gold, those hideous masks Like insects buzz about their sinister tasks Hissing, spraying, murderous mist Alchemical Death Treachery's poisoned gift Vomiting blood, brain sickening, black scabs on skin Entrails rupturing The Heaving Death, Necromancy, Dark Sorcery Invisible enemy Breeds in the Mind, spreads through the Mist Invades when we breathe How can I fight a foe I cannot see?

about

Formerly a 5-piece war machine A Band of Orcs returns on this demo with Oog, Cretos, and Gronk! as a death metal trio in the wake of the untimely demise of former WarChiefs.

The trinity carries forth the metal banner of A Band of Orcs with their newest Digital Triple release entitled "March of the Gore-Stained Axe Tribe."

Recorded at Trident Studio with Engineer/Producer Juan Urteaga (Machine Head, Testament, Hatriot), this three-song demo is a warning flair to humanity signalling the savagery to come in 2015.

Bass-player and Shaman, Gronk!, takes the high road handling the bardic scream-cantations, while axe-wielder Cretos Filthgrinder takes the low road, fielding the Gutteral verses in this dual vox frontal assault. Oog Skullbasher continues to administer the tribal beat downs in these latest battle hymns to arise from Orc Tower.

Track 1: "Chata Urklud Cruaksi" is a traditional battle chant of the Gore-Stained Axe Tribe, delivered in the native Hirntodian Orc tongue, accompanied by Oog's drums of war and the instrumental sorcery of Cretos and Gronk!.

Track 2:
"March of the Gore-Stained Axe Tribe" translates some of the Orc language battle chant into your disgusting Humanese, incorporating some of the lore of the founding of the Gore-Stained Axe Tribe into the tale.

Track 3: "Heaving Death" is the name of a plague found in Hirntodia. The song relates how Cretos became orphaned from his original people, the Twin Blades Tribe, when the yellowed-robed priests of the pestilent sign sailed their black ship into the harbor of his former home, Trito Craa Sertrob, unleashing the alchemical plague upon his once mighty folk, utterly decimating them. Suddenly cast adrift from his former people, this is the reason Cretos came to fight his way into the Gore-Stained Axe Tribe.

If you are part of the Bay Area California Tribe and go to the raid with D.R.I. on April 3rd you will also have a chance to meet the newest and 4th member of A Band of Orcs going forward, bass-player Srig Foehammer, who was liberated from the slave mines of the Hill Giants when the WarChiefs incited an uprising to defeat the horrid flesh traffickers – a tale told in the song “Of Broken Chains & Shattered Skulls” on the last concept album “Adding Heads to the Pile.”

The next chapter in the Mythos of A Band of Orcs begins with a line-up change and new tales with the “March of the Gore-Stained Axe Tribe” digital release. So, enjoy the latest offering to Gzoroth from A Band of Orcs – “Raise your axe, raise your shield, raise your Tusks high!!!”

A Band of Orcs Capitola, California

A Band of Orcs hail from Hirntodia. They came to Earth realm via a popular role-playing game played by a group of human children, who are now dead. The Game Master's older brother, Jed, saved his own life by offering to teach the Orcs to play guitar. SLAYER's "Reign in Blood" play in the background of Jed's room and eased the rage of the beasts. They use this magic called metal for Domination. ... more
