about

Hey! We are Nilfgaard - a melodic metal band from Bydgoszcz, Poland!

This is our debut album - Enter Fiction, recorded during the summer of 2013. It's a melodic metal album, with lyrics from various works of fiction - stories which we've found being most invocative and motivating! ((These include Dune, The Witcher, Battlestar Galactica.))

Track Name: Shadow in the Crowd
Empty eyes like made of stone
Empty streets in (the) darkest night
All your previous life is gone
Your soul is full of fright
They said: destroy, fight for us
The war will make you thrive
Hold (the) sword and cut through them thus
The only chance to survive

(The) hero of the front line
Now a shadow in the crowd

Everyday the same red pouring rains
Crimson skies filled with blood
Spilling out from your swallen veins
Fell on (the) earth into the mud

Great times have passed
You breath your last

Humbled!
Hurt!
Crashed!
Wound!

Your time's over
(So) blaze of glory
Honour's burried
Withered laurels

Cold steel's broken
Out of favour
Left, abandoned
Blanked out saviour

(The) hero of the front line
Now a shadow in the crowd
After the wartime
Agaist all odds now, you're staying grand and proud.

You're lost in (the) world
Try to deny the simple truth
You can't suppose
The joy that you can't find
Don't stop, just run
Don't even look behind!
Track Name: Torment
When I was their leader
I was harsh for them but just and fair cause
It takes heart
And iron fist
Traitors came to take
Away my dignity I should decide if
They must die
Or stay alive

Terror
Raging violence
Like a storm cloud
To destroy my greatest dream
Failure
Was my worst fear
To be (the) King is
Not as easy as it seems

When your might is forsaken
No one listens to sermons
Death means end To your great name
If you can't be remembered

Terror
Raging violence
Like a storm cloud
To destroy my greatest dream

I am to perish
In the history of all my kin, I
Can't deny
(The) rage of the crowd.
Shooting stars have fooled me
I was mesmerised by empty word which
Changed my life
The sun will fall...

...and the moon will rise on those who died
...unmarked graves of those who couldn’t even fight 2x
There will always be someone to keep the grief
Here I will lay them but no one's here for me x2

Here I lie On my deathbed
Empty thoughts What I’ve done? 2x

Saving my people was (the) only goal for me [fade in time]
And now they wish me to disappear. I won't. [fade in time]

I’m not a saint but not insane
I will remain and won't FADE IN TIME

My fate keeps awaiting me
Tyrany and war I gave
My soul will not rest in peace
Forever fade in time

I was their leader
I was harsh for them but just and fair cause
It takes heart
And iron fist
Traitors came to take
Away my dignity I should decide if
They must die
Or stay alive
Track Name: Battlestar
Cylon forces
Sneak attack
Infiltrated
Showed our backs
Without warning
Without chances
Where should we go?
What should we do?

There is no mercy
There is no honor
Nuclear warheads
Raining from orbit
Without warning
Without chances
Humanity retreats
Beyond the red line

We
will
survive

Lords
of Kobol
our guides

Action stations, battlestar
Launch all fighters to survive
Fight with your hearts
We have nothing to lose

We are the remnants of our race
This fleet is our home
Search for Earth will not end
We have nothing to lose

We
will
survive

Lords
of Kobol
our guides

Angels are calling
God is waiting
Where is our paradise?
Where is our goal?
We hear the music
The guiding beacon
There is a way out of here
Will it repeat?
Track Name: Defending Dekapolis
We hear the order, Crenshibons call
Don't know this feeling, I just know
Leaving our caverns, with the giants
Ten Towns get ready, here we come

Stand ground, don't let them through
Safety of people depends on you
Spill their blood, in the cold
Defending...Dekapolis!

Rage in our eyes, lust for violence
Strong defences, valley united
Try to stop us, foolish peasants
Smell the stench of death, dig your graves

Stand ground, don't let them through
Safety of people, depends on you
Spill their blood, in the cold
Defending...Dekapolis!

Bridge:
Fight die kill!
For your master!
Burn loot rape!
Fight die kill!
Do it faster!
Burn loot rape!

You din't expect me, here I am
Hear my footsteps, I am ready
Draw your weapon, filthy demon
Face me now, the end is near
Track Name: Black Feathers
The air is thick of grey smoke.
The air is thick of (the) prophecy long forgotten.
The air is thick of salt sweat,
The air is thick of sweat of these who fall in Sodden

He puts on his black helmet.
Rustle of the raven wings.
His sword gets unsheathed,
Craves for its cuts and swings.

Black horses and their hoofs'
Savage clangour on red stones.
Wild and manic death ride
Within great Cintra walls.

Pitch black feathers, crimson fire,
Silent groaning left behind.
Decimation, ravage, wreckage,
Ruins of her broken mind.

Death, destruction in my city
Broken defence, this is the end
Why has Fate choosen me
Hunting for royal blood
Are you my saviour?
Are you my fate?
This is Nilfgaard's wrath
Warrior with black feathers

He puts on his black helmet.
Rustle of the raven wings.
His sword gets unsheathed,
Craves for its cuts and swings.

Black horses and their hoofs'
Savage clangour on red stones.
Wild and manic death ride
Within great Cintra walls.

Pitch black feathers, crimson fire,
Silent groaning left behind.
Decimation, ravage, wreckage,
Ruins of her broken mind.

Death, destruction in my city
Broken defence, this is the end
Why has Fate choosen me
Hunting for royal blood
Are you my saviour?
Are you my fate?
This is Nilfgaard's wrath
Warrior with black feathers
Track Name: Arrakis
Generations looking at the vast, barren waste
Waiting for the Mistress to show them her grace
She is our homeland, promised paradise
We are (all) proud people and must pay the price

She's your sister, she's your mother
Feeds you, protects you and bothers
Come and bow before her might
Lead us Usul to the fight

Enslaved by the brothers and bound to end
Betrayed by empire, Sardaukar helped
Cries tears of sand to start the change
Let's take their water as the revenge

She's your sister, she's your mother
Feeds you, protects you and bothers
Come and bound before her might
Lead us Usul to the fight

Hear bells of freedom, see our messiah
Feel pleasure of war, the weirding ways
Adopted leader, new Nehemiah,
Just an offworlder... Here comes the day.

Souls counted billions in your damn jihad
This is your doing, you're the one to blame
You should have known what would have happen
Nothing is going to stay the same
Track Name: Conqueror of Dunes
Here, here I stand still
Over time and a barren hill
Seeing what your eyes can't see
No one was and will ever be
Master, I am the Master
Each day I'm getting closer
Disguised in exaltation,
Solace and alleviation.

I am chosen,
Unforgiven,
Cursed, unspoken,
Vision driven.

I am feeding on your fears,
Sip them from your rotting minds.
There's no one to wipe your tears.
Dune conqueror is deep inside.

(I'm) never, never forgiven
Feared of like a doom merchant
You turn your sand-glass in vain
Groaning you give up the damn fight
Dream of the night without dread
Days are filled with damnation
Your eyes will always stay dead
You won't reach for salvation.

I am chosen,
Unforgiven,
Cursed, unspoken,
Vision driven.
I'm a hunter,
False believer,
Slayer, reaper,
Madness weaver.
Track Name: Arafel
This is the trail,        
My word is alive.
Moonlight glitters
Pearls of my consciousness.

Million days -
(I) disarray.      
Loneliness,        
In dismay...        
 
I bequeath them
to You as sureness.        
Condemned        
too see Arafel.       
 
You can be certain Your body and soul
will meet same fate as all bodies and souls.
 
This is Your failure.
I’ve, driven to despair,
brought to humanity
ages of Scaterring.
 
Dare to live.
Dare to run.
Dare to terminate stagnation.
 
You will never know,
what Space hides.
I have seen the Arafel…
               
…Million days,
million nights,
million lives
lost on Path…
 
…Days of hate,
nights of lies -
Golden Path

Fading away to dust, sand
covers my flesh split into parts.
I will return to face Dark Cloud.

…Million days,
million nights,
million lives
lost on Path…
 
…Days of hate,
nights of lies -
Golden Path
Track Name: The Witcher's Waltz
Come with me, Dance with me
Deadly rythm, Deadly Blade
No emotion, Without anger
Play the music, Take my hand

Faster, Faster, Keep up the tempo
Faster, faster, Keep up the rythm

Come with me, Dance with me
Deadly rythm, Deadly Blade
No emotion, Without anger
Play the music, Take my hand

(clean) I am the Witcher, taste my blade...

(growl) I am the Witcher, taste my blade
Mutated childhood, trial of grass

Stop it, Let me out 2x
It burns, It rips

You don't know, What I feel
I'm a monster I don't care
To protect I was born
Without thanks I will go

Freak of nature, freak of nature
You point at me

You don't know What I feel
I'm a monster I don't care

(clean) I cannot find, my inner peace...

(growl) I cannot find, my inner peace
It was destroyed, a long time ago

Stop it Let me out 2x
It burns It rips

You don't know What I feel
I'm a monster I don't care
To protect I was born
Without thanks I will go

Freak of nature, freak of nature
You point at me

You don't know What I feel
I'm a monster I don't care
