about

Undead Viking Mafia Atlanta, Georgia

They are the last true warrior-poets of the American south, riding forth from the boiling asphalt hills of Atlanta to unleash their moonshine brand of metal on a watered-down world. Undead Viking Mafia mixes the blood of old southern tradition with the sonic crush of a new and dominating sound unheard in the metal scene until now. ... more

Track Name: Tread Upon the Lion
I’ve been hunted since the war
Now I’m wanted by the law
Everyone that I’ve ever killed
Is famous for the blood that they’ve spilled

Betrayal, my destiny
This is, the only way
Murdered, by cowardice
Vengeance, by the common man

Waiting for my own procession
Death might be the only escape
Brother killed in cold blood
Rise up, 'cause it’s all I’ve ever known

Betrayal, my destiny
This is, the only way
Murdered, by cowardice
Vengeance, by the common man

Have you been shot by one of your own?
It’s a crazy feeling and I don’t recommend it,
First you feel that sharp pain,
and then you see your blood all over the wall
And just when you start to feel a little bit better,
that dirty little coward has already finished the job
Now ain’t that just some crazy shit,
keep your friends close and your enemies dead

Betrayal, my destiny
This is, the only way
Murdered, by cowardice
Vengeance, by the common man

Murdered, by cowardice
Vengeance, by the common man
Track Name: Macon it Worse
My only disease
A taste so refined
Just one more round baby
The devil’s drink is just fine for me yea

Let the whiskey flow
I wanna pour it down
Bourbon’s in my soul, yea
Just a shot or two or thirty

The lights are low
The room is spinnin’
Let’s have one more baby
For the times that we won’t remember

It’s time to get up, and then

Fall
The sun has set and I can’t believe the things I’ve done
Pride
The south is where I’ve lost my hope, and it’s where I’ll die

Let me taste the burn
Feel it in my veins
Borderline invincible
I’m born for the war that I brought tonight

Bring all your friends
We’re just getting started in here
I’ll take you all on
First a drink then we’ll fight until dawn

It’s time to get up, and then

Fall
The sun has set and I can’t believe the things I’ve done
Pride
The south is where I’ve lost my hope, and it’s where I’ll die

I’ve taken the fights, and I’ve taken the falls
and it’s all been a total waste
I never wanted your bitch, I just wanted a drink
so get your shit and get out of my face
I know you wanna help, but you got it all wrong
You see I always knew it’d end like this
My past is full of scars, and now I’m seeing stars
But my night is far from over

Let the whiskey flow
I wanna pour it down
Bourbon’s in my soul baby
Just a shot or two or thirty

The lights are low
The room is spinnin’
Let’s have one more baby
For the times that we won’t remember

It’s time to get up, and then...
Track Name: H.M.S. Romero
Everyone aboard this sinking ship
heads hanging low for the price of fare
captive by your own machinations
when will you face your own

Fate is the only thing that halts your progress
A bitter rival with a bitter soul
and now you go and the gun goes with you
The sun will rise on the day you die

The tides are high, waves crashing, waves crashing
You gasp for air, you’re drowning, you’re drowning
Cry out in fear, waves crashing, waves crashing
Give in to death, you’re drowning, you’re drowning

Leave what you know and embrace your kin
this is the last you’ll ever hear of them
toast to the death you will become
sail to the bottom of the

Glass coffins float as a clear reminder
The life you lived is the time you lost
and now you go and the gun goes with you
The sun will rise on the day you die

The tides are high, waves crashing, waves crashing
You gasp for air, you’re drowning, you’re drowning
Cry out in fear, waves crashing, waves crashing
Give in to death, you’re drowning, you’re drowning

The tides are high, waves crashing, waves crashing
You gasp for air, you’re drowning, you’re drowning
Cry out in fear, waves crashing, waves crashing
Give in to death, you’re drowning, you’re drowning

Dive to the depths of human greed
deep underneath the broken soldiers
well beyond the thought of you and me
Rise once again, devour all
Track Name: Last Call (Live)
For those who understand us,
and those who learn
For those who stand beside us,
and those who burn

Our time is not a promise,
a sacrifice
Our blood a flowing river,
full of lies

I know my life won’t be wasted

Everyone is here,
pour one for the ancients
No life will remain,
drink one for the oceans

The verdict has been given
Take what’s earned
The power of prediction
A guilty charge

The cards are on the table
One to nothing
Don’t bother with forgiveness
No, not this time

I know my life won’t be wasted

Everyone is here,
pour one for the ancients
No life will remain,
drink one for the oceans

I know my life won’t be wasted
I know my life wasn’t a waste

Everyone is here,
pour one for the ancients
No life will remain,
drink one for the oceans
Track Name: Ithaca Rising (Live)
Take the money and run, if you know what’s good for you
Show them all, you’ve got what it takes,
Turn the page, and get on with your life
Give it all away, for who you want to be
This is not a fairy tale

Kill the automation

They try to turn you against you
Fear, is taking over
They’re just wasting your time
Life, is running out

Take the money and run, if you know what’s good for you
Show them all, you’ve got what it takes,
Turn the page, and get on with your life
Give it all away, for who you want to be
This is not a fairy tale

Kill the automation

They try to turn you against you
Fear, is taking over
They’re just wasting your time
Life, is running out

This is not a fairy tale
I’ve seen this before
This will not end well
Live like you’re already dead
you’re already dead

Take the money and run, if you know what’s good for you
Show them all, you had what it took,
Turn the page, and get on with your death
Give it all away, for who you used to be
Live like you’re already dead
Live like you’re already dead
Track Name: Irreversible Loss of Personhood (Live)
We, Cease, To, Be

The darkness we all feared
Born from our desire
Eternities of failure
Destined to expire

We, Cease, To, Be

Kill the children now
Safe from themselves
Destroy all signs of hope
Believe in the end

Everything is breaking down, life just another regret,
Everyone you barely knew, lost in an instant

It’s only a matter of time, before the horsemen ride,
End it all now, forget the god who lied

Stare into my eyes; fear the end no more,
I will make this quick and I will make this painful

Tear the skin right off, the grip is so damn cold,
And you will never breathe, breathe the sulfur deep-

-Again, Cease, To, Be

Stand before the chosen
Bathe in the toxins
Surrendering failed existence
Taste the blood of freedom

Everything is breaking down, life just another regret,
Everyone you barely knew, lost in an instant

It’s only a matter of time, before the horsemen ride,
End it all now, forget the god who lied

Stare into my eyes; fear the end no more,
I will make this quick and I will make this painful

Tear the skin right off, the grip is so damn cold,
And you will never breathe, breathe the sulfur deep-

-Again, Cease, To, Be
Track Name: Amber Black (Live)
I want it all, and I don’t
care who dies, for me to get it
I just want my slice,
And I’ll leave you for dead

I don’t know how you did it
Spread this disease
I am the darkness
Waiting to envelop you at the end of the road

You’ve got them all fooled, now don’t you
Yea, well I’m not buyin’ your bullshit beliefs
Take another look and pray to your god
Go ahead and judge me but it’s part of the show

Isn’t it time you admit it
One more lost cause
Just another martyr
I guarantee your flame will burn out soon

You’ve got them all fooled, now don’t you
Yea, well I’m not buyin’ your bullshit beliefs
Take another look and pray to your god
Go ahead and judge me but it’s part of the show

I want it all, and I don’t
care who’s dead, when I get it
I’m taking you down
On my way to the end
Track Name: Evidence of Distinction (Live)
A father’s son, Never knows, the things you did, to keep him home
And exchanged words, and secrets kept, I never heard, the words you said to me

Digging underneath
Digging for the truth that I believe
Severed from the source
Will we ever know the name you made

You fought for this, for these headlines, did you ever think, what it meant to me
Was it worth the loss, that we suffered, a page torn out, of who I thought I was

Digging underneath
Digging for the truth that I believe
Severed from the source
Will we ever know the name you made

The wars you lived, that burdened you, are carried on, by your bloodlines
And even though, you may be gone, I’m still here, on this battlegound

Never forget, blood inside is not what makes you
Never forget, blood inside is not what makes you
Never forget, blood inside is not what makes you
Never forget, blood.
