new words by Joel Sattler

Down within the mountainside
In a cave huge and wide
There you'll find the dreaded castle
of the Mountain King

There he built a crystal cave
Made the troll men his slaves
Set himself upon the throne:
became the Mountain King

If you go you should have known
No one e're has returned
From the place below the earth
where the rocks burn

If they catch you you will not
ever see sun again
You will a prisoner
of the troll men

Of their trap you must beware
Set a spell under there
To compel you to the service
of the Mountain King

When the sun no longer shines
Waiting for end of time
Then the world will feel the vengeance
of the Mountain King


There’s a pathway leading down
20 miles underground
for you step into the hallway
of the Mountain King

Darker than the blackest night
Hidden deep out of sight
Hear the symphony of devils
of the Mountain King

Many thousand years ago
He was sent far below
Banished for the mortal sin
of heresy

For the Judgment Day he waits
Angry and full of hate
Ready to obliterate
All that men made

He will raise a mighty hand
Demons fly on command
To incinerate the cities
for the Mountain King

He will rise up out of earth
As if fire gave him birth
To destroy the human race
that dared to put him there


When he comes up to the surface
For his destruction furthering
Then we must all men band together
And with an army murder him!

Murder him! Murder him! Murder him! Murder him!

Kill all the demons and the dark angels
Kill the black Satan, hear us sing!
Kill all the troll men, kill all the evil
Kill the red Devil, kill the King!

Kill him! Kill him!

Kill him! Kill him!

Kill him! Kill him! Kill him!

Kill him!
