Tracklist:

01 – Sharkbite Johnny

Not long ago I’ve heard this terrifyin’ tale
‘bout a cap’n of unprecedented cruelty
Johnny wuz his name, by fear an’ terror he commanded
until his tired an’ angry crew planned mutinyThe cap’n wuz caught by this revenge thirsting horde
Some scallywag came out with a cat o’nine tails
There wuz a consultation, his punishment decided
A ramble through the dark cold waters under the keelThe ropes were tied tight to his ankles an’ his wrists
Down there wuz full o’sharks so hungry for fresh meat
Ya-ha-harrrr laughed the lads loud as hell
The worst evil wishes an’ curses they yelledThe cap’n wuz struggling underwater to survive
When he tore the rope with its sharklike steely bite
He clung the cord with steady hand an’ then began to climb
Sharkbite Johnny wuz returning to life

Dead silence fell on deck then came a curse an’then a pray
The cap’n came on board, he wuz back among his mates
The looking in his eyes would cringe Satan himself
Sharkbite Johnny wuz ready for revenge

The coxswain wuz appalled, the sailors were so frightened
Right there in front of them they saw the Devil in disguise
The Cap’n took a cutlass then he got a loaded flint
Sharkbite Johnny like a flash began to kill

It wuz not long before survivors gave up
They say he blew down thirteen men by himself
Peace wuz then restored on board the blood covered ship
Sharkbite Johnny’s revenge wuz then fullfilled

02 – 25 Strikes

25 strikes it took to throw Thatch down
An’ 3 times his body swam around the ship
25 strikes an’ now he lies down below
Yohoho on the bottom of the sea25 strikes it took to throw Thatch down
An’ 3 times his body swam around the ship
25 strikes an’ now he lies down below
Yohoho on the bottom of the seaDamn you villains, who are you? And, from whence came you?
You may see by our colours we are no pyrates
I cannot spare my boat, but I will come aboard of you as soon as I can, with my sloop
Damnation seize my soul if I give you quarters, or take any from you25 strikes it took to throw Thatch down
An’ 3 times his body swam around the ship
25 strikes an’ now he lies down below
Yohoho on the bottom of the sea

03 – Black Storm, Deep Seas and the Majestic Kraken

To the black storm
Amongst the deep seas
Belongs the majestic KrakenTerrifying judge
Of seafarers’ fate
Fearsome deliverer of life and deathTo the black storm
Amongst the deep seas
Belongs the majestic KrakenTerrifying judge
Of seafarers’ fate
Fearsome deliverer of life and death

Scary tales and frightening legends
Told by survivors of shipwrecks an’ storms
They all speak of the divinity of the dephts

Nightmare tentacles crushing galleons
Grinding whole fleets down

May the Lord have mercy on us through the
Night of the Kraken

To the black storm
Amongst the deep seas
Belongs the majestic Kraken

Terrifying judge
Of seafarers’ fate
Fearsome deliverer of life and death

Incoming vessels beheld from afar
Through eyes red like Satan’s blood
When ye hear the scream of the beast ye’re done

Nightmare tentacles crushing galleons
Grinding whole fleets down

May the Lord have mercy on us through the
Night of the Kraken

Nightmare tentacles crushing galleons
Grinding whole fleets down

May the Lord have mercy on us through the
Night of the Kraken

04 – Caraibica

By the westerly driven towards the sunset of the Caribbean Sea
Painted red by the dying rays of the setting sun clouds fill up the sky
Lulled by the rolling under the gentle touch of the singing of the waves
Caraibica keeps following his route in search of relentless libertyWarmed by the setting sun
Caraibica fears no one
The merchants of the Flota de Indias call her Flagelo del Mar
The bowsprit cleaves the air
The Jolly Roger is waving fair
The sky is clear, the wind is up,
In full sail toward the horizonCruisin’On
Hugging Hispaniola coasts
Passing through Bahama channel
Shores of Cuba in sight off the port bowLet’s sing a-long with this pirate crew a song of beautiful liberty
As the smell of the marine breeze fill our dreamin’ hearts in the shades of dusk
Caraibica’s everlasting aimless quest it will never end
By the westerly driven towards the sunset of the Caribbean Sea

Caraibica
Poner el miedo en el alma del viajero
Isla Grenada hasta Cañeveral
Caraibica Flagelo del Mar

Caraibica
Majestuoso galeòn, reina del terror
nos llevan a través de mil cruces
Caraibica nos hace soñar

Caraibica
Poner el miedo en el alma del viajero
Isla Grenada hasta Cañeveral
Caraibica Flagelo del Mar

Caraibica
Majestuoso galeòn, reina del terror
nos llevan a través de mil cruces
Caraibica nos hace soñar

Caraibica Flagelo del Mar

05 – Straits of Chaos

Mesmerized by siren’s song, heard the lure of evil
Deep into the sailors mind, someone calls’em there
Atmosphere is threatening, storming clouds come closer
Through electric bolts we’re sailing straight towards hellGathering of lost souls, vessels cemetery
Abyss of perdition, point of no return
Neverending labyrinth, cradle of possession,
Caught up in the straits of chaos, we’ll never get backBringing us insanity, leading us to madness
Taking desperation and confusion in our hearts
Leading all the unfortunates down into oblivion
I know now, we’ll never see the land againA vortex of death appears before us
Ruthless black waves make us dance with fear
CHOIR: Here I am! Here I am!
Trapped into the nothing
CHOIR: Here I am! Here I am!
Entangled in the straits of chaos

Ghosts of the old sailors curse my soul
Hallucinations fill my brain ravaged
CHOIR: Here I am! Here I am!
Prisoner of folly
CHOIR: Here I am! Here I am!
Entangled in the straits of chaos

Straits of chaos

By the wraiths surrounded, spirits of the oceans
Hellish apparitions, creatures of the sea
Pelagus inhabitants, dancers of the abyss
Sent by the Devil to bring us before Him

Power of the dark tides blows away the rigging
Shattering the top sails, bringing down the mast
Sharp black rocks break up the bulkhead
So we’re all doomed to get lost in the fog

A vortex of death appears before us
Ruthless black waves make us dance with fear
CHOIR: Here I am! Here I am!
Trapped into the nothing
CHOIR: Here I am! Here I am!
Entangled in the straits of chaos

Ghosts of the old sailors curse my soul
Hallucinations fill my brain ravaged
CHOIR: Here I am! Here I am!
Prisoner of folly
CHOIR: Here I am! Here I am!
Entangled in the straits of chaos

Straits of chaos

So we’re all falling down
Sinking in the dephts of this bottomless pit
Wondering if we ever get out of here
If we ever see again our loved faces

Life it seems so far away
Misfortune has befallen us, hated by the gods
To run into this cursed place
For us nocturnal moon’s not likely to rise more

Mesmerized by siren’s song, heard the lure of evil
Deep into the sailors mind, someone calls’em there
Atmosphere is threatening, storming clouds come closer
Through electric bolts we’re sailing straight towards hell

Gathering of lost souls, vessels cemetery
Abyss of perdition, point of no return
Neverending labyrinth, cradle of possession,
Caught up in the straits of chaos, we’ll never get back

A vortex of death appears before us
Ruthless black waves make us dance with fear
CHOIR: Here I am! Here I am!
Trapped into the nothing
CHOIR: Here I am! Here I am!
Entangled in the straits of chaos

Ghosts of the old sailors curse my soul
Hallucinations fill my brain ravaged
CHOIR: Here I am! Here I am!
Prisoner of folly
CHOIR: Here I am! Here I am!
Entangled in the straits of chaos

Straits of chaos
