Bloodbath Fanzine Odinfist hit you like...a giant pre-Christian Nordic deity! Bristling with dangerous energy of distinct ferocity these Canadian thrashers take absolutely no prisoners. Tight riffing and relentlessly pounding drums provide a calamitous backdrop while singer “Tex” Anderson wails the melody and “Surfin' Clam” Valstar adds his blackened sneer to the proceedings. Favorite track: Grim Toll.

Track Name: Release the Vice
Bleeding from the skull
Minutes into days
All your friends and family are
Dying in your haze
Solitude from light
There’s nothing going on
Tilt your head back
Let the clamp carry on
This vice is clamping down on me
Yet I turn the crank to see
The will is gone to set me free
This vice will never let me be
Withstand the chaos in this hell
Free me of these chains and cell
Open the door to freedom’s bell
Release the vice to Satan’s well
You can’t turn the crank
The mind turns it for you
The vice grips down
You act you never know
Release the Vice
Prepare the Price
Or roll the Dice
Release the Vice
Or pay the Price
Of your Life

Track Name: The Traitor
I’ve been sold second hand
All my work compromised
Taken back forced I ran
Why is this who devised?
All my work compromised
This poison is running all through my veins
Wheels in motion I cannot stop the blaze
Who is this assassin riddles only know
In our lives we meet
The traitor
Light the fire ignore defeat
Let them burn
Take a stand against the odds
Freedom hurts
We must rise against the traitor
Total loss, devastation
Everything wrong, my salvation
Trust is lost, forgotten
Mind Jaded, future pain
Run away, no option
I must stay and fight never giving up
Fight for what is right cannot stop the blaze
Find the traitor who ruined my future
Looking for the traitor
Looking for my vengeance
Sold my life for freedom
Will I ever find them?
Track Name: Grim Toll
Defending the walls against
Men without equals
Unending- their warriors bring
Death to us All
With bloodrage they crash into
Spears shining brightly
But they wage a war that they
Cannot lose lightly
Come to the Walls
Come to the Walls
Come to the Walls
Come to the Walls
In fury we cast them to
Their story’s ending
We’re knee deep in blood and they
Won’t stop ascending
Their numbers are too great, the
City Surrenders
But what hope can we have, the
People’s Defenders
We are failing
We are fading
Watch them Crying
Watch them Dying
Cannot help them
Cannot save them
Grim toll of life
As our voices call out
As our city dies
Our Sanctity
Our homes, our hearts, our lives
Track Name: The Great Thirst
Wandering onward
Burnt by the sun
Humanity withers
And still we march on
Darkness of night surrounds us now
Out in the distance infidels howl
No time for rest abandon the weak
Holy Shimeh awaits us just out of reach
Prophet or madman?
Preaching salvation
Guiding an army
Through scorching damnation
Days march on and men waste away
Endless horizon leading astray
Faith that propels us, true or misled?
Our path through the desert marked by our dead
Our God above us
Counts bodies in the sand
The price is still higher
To reach the holy land
More men
Drop dead
Have we
Men for God’s toll to pay?
Oasis, salvation
Tainted, they drink it still
Bloated corpses
Rot as they drink their fill
More men
Drop dead
Have we
Men for God’s toll to pay?
A prophet, among us
Miracle of man
Gives water so pure
Drawn from desert sand
Our pain
On this
God will
Guide us
Our holy land awaits
Track Name: Soul Surgery
I was built for war
Enslaved by the sword
Use me as you will
Your sick victory fulfill
Broke me down and then
Built me up again
You remove from me
My soul, my humanity
Run up to the front
Gun in my hand
No time to think
Or understand
Pulling the trigger
Blood running cold
I’m just a soldier
With no…
Soul Surgery
rebuild me
into a hollow man
bred for violence
Soul Surgery
control me
made into a monster
without conscience
Men fall, hit the ground
Let loose, endless rounds
Countless bodies lie
I just keep on marching by
Grown men weep like boys
Playwith deadly toys
Thousands of faceless clones
Yet we stand and die alone
I was made to
Strike down those who
Stand in my way
Until my last day
Blood stains my hands
Down to the bone
I’m just a soldier
I’m never coming home
Track Name: Dream of Light
What have we done
In this world so fair?
Will our names be sung
In the years when we grow old?
Legacy beholds me
I close my eyes
The wind blows around me
I feel its rise
Heroes rise to conquer
They are not bound
Their path lies in battle
Victory is found
Every man will dream of light
Though he lives an endless fight
In the end his pot of gold
Is worth it for his life was sold
Standing free upon his land
Working for his woman’s hand
In this dream so full of light
To every man it’s worth the sight
Track Name: Will of the Warrior
Will of the Warrior
In our minds we are the ones to protect our sacred home
No onslaught can take our lands, our blades send their souls to roam
Will of the Warrior
We live to fight with our might we burn our foes to ash
Drive forces back with our attack with our sword, bow and lash
We will ride into battle
We will fight though we don’t have to
We will die and rest in glory
Rest in glory
Live to ride, Love for battle
Live to fight, ‘Cause we are glad to
Live to die, and rest in glory
Rest in glory
Track Name: Ragnarok
Warriors geared up raging for the enemy
Endless waves of bloody screams drowning cries for mercy
Evading endless blows the axe stays true
Killing foes one by one cleaving them in two
The god of war has fallen hear his battle cry
The wolf his jaws are wet as they reach to touch the sky
Charge fight kill
Show no mercy
Charge fight kill
No surrender
Charge fight die
Show no mercy
Glory lies with you in battle
The final stand
Warriors clash
Spilling blood upon the land
The end of days
Fate foretold
Life and honour torn away
Bodies lying on the ground ripped and torn apart
They are fighting onward still with anger in their hearts
Bleeding out upon the snow millions pass away
Life is lost for nothing gained on this final day
Killing without prejudice there can be no sense to this
In a war that no one wins die and get it over with
