Ex Deo
The Immortal Wars

1. The Rise Of Hannibal

Hear the sounds of a distant time
Echoing voices of ancient tyrants
Hamilcar, son of Cathage
Bestow the seed of the lion broods

From this day,
One will rise, many will fall
To seek the throne of sand

Thy perilous nations
Tremble at the hands of your enemies
I've seen your fate
In dreams far away

Oh let the sun shin upon you
Rise my son, avenge thy father
For this glory is built in fire

"Father, on this day, I promise to never be a friend of Rome,
to treat them as a mortal enemy, this promise I make with my blood!
I am the son of Carthage, I bathe in the blood of Rome
Plough and eagle set to war!" [?]

Feel the might of Carthage
The power of a thousand spears descending
Beasts crushing the skulls of the enemy
Eternal storms ascend

In honour of my father
We shall rise again

There's no place to die
There's no end in sight
There's only pain, only death
Only one shall reign

Forgotten legends
Lay amongst the wasted lands
Kink of all kings, merciless

Descend upon thy
With might an power
Warriors of the sands

Fear me
For I am Hannibal

2. Hispania (The Siege Of Saguntum)

The time has come
Havoc will rise
Death from my cold hands

To strike the eagle
At its nest we lay
The torch of fire

Women, children, enslaved forever
Every man put to death
Conquer Hispania

Spaniard, ally of Rome
I shall plunder and destroy
In the name Carthage
Blood shall reap the earth

"This is my oath, I uphold it to you, father,
I have started my duty in honour and in blood"

And no one else could ever see you coming

I will bring this war to you
I will see the lions eat the heart of the living
I will see the world turn to dust

"Obscurum per Obscurius...
Imperium per Imperio...
Cathago Nova"

Resistance dismantled
No chance to surrender
I lay siege to Saguntum
To install my supremacy

Arrogant Roman
Seek my crucifixion
I seek your destruction

I place my hands in the depths of eternity
I sacrifice my soul for the goods of apathy

"Rome offers you peace or war, General.
Choose: It matters not to Rome!
This is War!"

3. Crossing Of The Alps

I can smell the bodies, burning the earth
Hispania has fallen, Rome at my grasp
My patience is vast, resolve absolute
Lex Talionis

My order arrives, I'll bring your fate
No one will stop this dominance rise
Unleash my wrath, thunder from Carthage
Roma will perish

One will save the world from demise
One will walk this earth triumphant
One will roam with the beasts of the world
One will decimate all

Can you see my rage bleed through my veins?
Can you see the future engulfed in Carthage?

I'll break through your gates, thousands of men
Forty beasts at hand, Celtics by my side
Blood in the Roman rivers
Resistance will fall
One by one, sword by sword
I will be king
King of the world

Father, give me your strength
The impossible shall be possible
We will find a way or make one
By the grace of my ancestors
I am Hannibal

Give me your strength, pillar of gods
My hands are frozen but my soul is on fire
The cold is my shelter, my faith is alive
But my body is dying, lift me again

To the sounds of wisdom
To the sounds of destruction
To the sounds of the angels
That will make me reborn

I will rise from the depths of demise
To lead this army into the bowels of Rome
To the bowels of Rome

I'm here at your footsteps
Let the sirens sing
The sounds of conquest

Can you hear my marching soldiers?
Can you hear my voice fade into the night?
I am here
I am here

4. Suavetaurilia (Intermezzo)

[Instrumental]"Mars Pater, Eiusque Rei Ergo Macte Suovitaurilibus Inmolandis Esto"

5. Cato Major: Carthago Delenda Est!

Threat feeds the lies to kill the bloodline
Ideals of Rome, the idea of prosperity
Freedom, guides me through the heart

I am a soldier of Rome
I am descendant of Mars
I am the son of Jove
The son of Jove

Hannibal, great general
Of the Carthaginian hordes
Barbarian, this is your final stand

How dare you invade
Our lands and break the treaty
A thousand miles away
A forgotten reign

We shall defend the honor of Rome
With every breath we take
To the end of times
Our glory will feed the brave

"Rise, General Scipio, and lead us to victory!

Mars is by our side, raise your gladius
As we are the light, they are the darkness
For this Republic, for honor
We are Romans!"

Advance, stand with me
Children of the gods
Soldiers of the chosen ones
Fight with me and die with me
The eagle of Rome shall stand for eternity

As worlds collide
Burning lies, traitors crucified
The enemy pushed back forever

6. Ad Victoriam (The Battle Of Zama)

Push, pull
Divide and conquer
Everyone is everything

Zama Regia
Summer of legends
Summer of blood
Wage war back to Carthage
This time we end it all

Face your nemesis
I am the general you cannot kill

"I am your blood turned to death
I am Roma Invicta"

On this day
Let forty thousand souls
Crush the hands of Carthage

Bring me the head of the lion
For victory, I lay my sword for you

Three line single column, left flank cavalry!
Massinissa, move forward!"

Push, pull
Divide and conquer
Everyone is everything

Zama Regia
Summer of legends
Summer of blood
Wage war back to Carthage
This time we end it all

Face your nemesis
I am the general you cannot kill

Bring me the head of the lion
For victory, I lay my sword for you

I hear the screams of the earth shake before me
I hear the moans of men dying
With spears entrenched in their bowels
Severed heads and bodies wrapped in fire

There is no place for war
There is no place for the living
Plunge the gladius of Rome
Into the heart of Africa

7. The Spoils Of War

In the shade lie the spoils of war
In this land lies the key to victory

Door to door
Man to man
Kill them all

The power to dominate
The seeds of the poisoned
Rewrite the pages of history

I've walked from the vineyards of heaven
To the battlefields of hell

Hannibal Barca
Rome demands your ultimate surrender
Lay down your arms
Or face complete annihilation

Legends will fall today
Thunder will reign the skies
The gods rejoice in triumph
The spoils of war

Burn it down
Seek your sanctuary
Emblem of power
Heart of courage
Destroyed forever

I solitude you died
Master tactician
We salute you

Your king is dead
Long live the Republic

Bellum Parate
Quoniam Pacem
Pati Non Potestis

8. The Roman

From the sword of Romulus
To the blood of Caesar
I give myself to the will of the gods
Guide me through faith

Dignity and virtue, strength and honor
Bless me with the skills of war
I serve the truth
I serve the light
I am Roman

I've seen the cold worlds disappear
Into the dark upon the burning crosses
The crescent moon bleeds the blood of tyrants
I bring order for the world to prosper with courage at hand

I will never yield
I am Roman

Con il sangue in mano, con onore del aquila, siamo figli di Romolo,
uno sogno, un brivido, sempre con te fino la fina die tempi, ave Roma!

Oh, as they whisper
Sounds of domination
Let the beasts of the world fall
Let the civil world rise
Philosophers of the world
Write down the antics
Of the ancient world
Bring forth evolution

Her beauty is vast
Her reach infinite
Her wrath is unmerciful
And I will serve you until the end of times

I am Roman
The Roman
