Hell To Pay 02:35
Siren of hell call fates warning Call to my soul from hell’s bell Fallen Gods lamb to the slaughter Price for my sin time will tell What cannot kill me will just make me strong Code of dishonour each day Man out of time gonna pay for life’s crime There’s gonna be hell to pay Solo – Wilkinson Solo – Rochester Life falls away retributions decay eats at my heart to the core Angel of death as I take my last breath, my body can’t take any more Dark heart of sadness release me from madness, all of my fear and pain Set free my sin, burned through hell fire within and wash it away with the rain Set free my sin, burned with hell fire within and wash it away with the rain Retribution, there’s gonna be hell to pay No Absolution, there’s gonna be hell to pay No Salvation, there’s gonna be hell to pay Fire for my sin, there’s gonna be hell to…

Letting Go 05:10
Bad blood, hard line, Doing time for a passion crime It’s time I made it on my own Bad luck, all mine I’m living on borrowed time Save your prayers and let it go I thought I had it made This was the price I paid Flesh and blood I turned to stone Each night I rolled the dice I walked across thin ice Lettin’ Go Hard Up, hard time What I got is mine all mine I’m easy come or easy go Fired up, shot down Lights out just foolin’ around She’s the one who’s putting on the show I thought I had it made This was the price I paid Flesh and blood I turned to stone Each night I rolled the dice I walked across thin ice Lettin’ Go Lettin’ Go I walked the razor’s edge Hotwired upon the ledge And I’m cut down to the bone Under a burning sky You know I’m born to die Solo - Wilkinson I thought I had it made This was the price I paid Flesh and blood I turned to stone Each night I rolled the dice I walked across thin ice Lettin’ Go Break out, fast lane One chance, never do it again Living costs though life’s for free On heat, on cue To give me something old, borrowed and blue Hard ride but never let me be I thought I had it made This was the price I paid Flesh and blood I turned to stone Each night I rolled the dice I walked across thin ice Lettin’ Go Lettin’ Go I walked the razor’s edge Hotwired upon the ledge And I’m cut down to the bone Under a burning sky You know I’m born to die Lettin’ Go

A Court room of malice, a poisonous chalice A nest full of venomous snakes Spawned by a bastard who turned his cloak fast Rode on a plague of mistakes To further his glories he told them his stories Web spun with spite he would weave Gathering to him his jesters and fools Bound in a web of deceit Now Court’s in session So learn your lesson! Hangman jury bringing me down Judged by a fool at the Court of Clown’s Jesters and jokers who make their own rules Judged on a lie at the Court of fools Hangman jury bringing me down Judged on a lie at the Court of Clown’s Jesters and jokers who break their own rules Judged on a lie at the Court of fools Solo - Rochester Stand alone I stand accused Victimised I am abused His jurors one my guilt assured Welcome to this Court of hate They sit in judgment as I wait They are the traitor’s at my gate Your humiliation, your soul’s desecration A verdict they spat in your face The spider in black had his knife at your back Each juror a shameful disgrace Enemy or Brother? One or the other! Hangman jury bringing me down Judged by a fool at the Court of Clown’s Jesters and jokers who make their own rules Judged on a lie at the Court of fools Hangman jury bringing me down Judged on a lie at the Court of Clown’s Jesters and jokers who break their own rules Judged on a lie at the Court of fools

Give me something to believe in that I can call my own A shining light that guides me on a road I walk alone My demon’s ride beside me beneath that blood red sky There comes a time for living, there comes a time to die If I walked that road forever If I walked that road alone Would you still be there beside me? Would we ever make it home? Though there’s hunger in your eyes Said we’d never compromise There I go It’s a long time ‘til forever, that place where no one knows You said you’d leave me never and so the feeling grows If I walked that road forever If I walked that road alone Would you still be there beside me? Would we ever make it home? Though there’s hunger in your eyes Said we’d never compromise There I go There I go Solo - Wilkinson When I’m walking in your shadow, when my heart is turned to stone And I lose my faith in my dreams, and I’m cold and all alone When I look into your eyes, see the pain you see the lies When I look into your eyes, see the pain, you see my lies Hand in hand, No compromise Love had lost, Love had died Let it go.

Out of the darkness they call to the night Angel of death draws a veil on the light We are forsaken, they are the damned To walk in the shadows at evils command Walls fall down, Walls fall down, down Walls fall down, Walls fall Down in your blood, feel their disease Sucking your life they just do as they please We are forsaken, they are the few When those bastards come calling you know what to do As the darkness falls, you can hear their calls, look towards the sky As they sense your fear you feel them getting near and it’s your turn to die There’s no redemption, there’s no remorse Feeding upon us we’re taken by force Nowhere to run, there’s nowhere to hide As the walls fall around us it’s our turn to die Walls fall down, Walls fall down, down Walls fall down, Walls fall down, down, down Walls fall down, down, down Walls fall down Walls fall down Solo – Rochester As the darkness falls, you can hear their calls, look towards the sky As they sense your fear, you feel them getting near and it’s your turn to die Out of the darkness, call to the night Angels of death draw a veil on the light We are forsaken, they are the damned To walk in the shadows at evils command Walls fall down, Walls fall down, down Walls fall down, Walls fall down, down, down Walls fall down, down, down Walls fall down Walls fall down

Shadowland 05:51
We were fallen angels in a world born to despair To the silent shadows we were whispers in the air Undead in darkness our hearts would feel no pain Man’s own sorrow would yet be evils gain Dark faith deliver us, transcend the sands of time Their deaths last sweetness did the passion fit the crime? Fortune ruined for the life that they held dear In their dying, apocalyptic fear Shadowland, heart of stone Son of man, you’re not alone Save your soul Shadowland my sin Blood brethren my kin Immortality Shadowland my home Shadowland my sin Blood brethren my kin Immortality Shadowland my home Light’s suffocation our time to prey and feed Their supplication, submission to our need Without reflection their life blood fuels our greed Cold desire, their warmth flows as they bleed Shadow land, heart of stone Son of man, you’re not alone Save your soul Solo – Wilkinson Solo – Rochester Solo – Wilkinson In Shadowland, heart of stone In Shadowland, you’re not alone In Shadowland, heart of stone In Shadowland In Shadowland

COVERED IN LUST On heat, no point running Fast track, soon be coming On fire, I know she needs me On time, she’s gonna bleed me I want it all, I want it too much She’s out of reach, she’s out of touch And I’m dirty on the inside And she’s my stain You know she’s got me roped and tied Cos I’m in chains And she’s got me at her fingertips To touch too much I can taste her sweat upon my lips And she’s covered in lust Covered in lust She’s a sinner Covered in lust Covered in lust, covered in lust She’s a sinner Covered in lust Heartbeat, perspiration On her knees, my salvation I want it all, I know it’s wrong She’s got her stockings and her high heels on I want it all, I want it too much She’s out of reach, she’s out of touch And I’m dirty on the inside And she’s my stain You know she’s got me roped and tied Cos I’m in chains And she’s got me at her fingertips To touch too much I can taste her sweat upon my lips And she’s covered in lust Covered in lust, covered in lust She’s a sinner Covered in lust She’s covered Solo – Rochester Solo – Wilkinson Solo – Rochester Covered in lust, covered in lust She’s a sinner Covered in lust Covered in lust, covered in lust She’s a sinner Covered in lust Covered in lust, covered in lust Covered in lust She’s a sinner

Fallen 03:28
We are the sons of fire we are the dogs of war We are the dogs of death and we stand upon this shore We are the hounds of Hades, hear our battle cry We are thunder, we are lighting in the sky Sons and fathers born to die Tyranny born to defy Let them hear our battle cry As we join the fallen This is our final cause, this is our destiny This is our fate, our death our immortality Let my blood fall to the sand Let us die under command As we make our final stand As we join the fallen Sons and fathers born to die Tyranny born to defy Let them hear our battle cry As we join the fallen Solo – Wilkinson Let my blood fall to the sand Let us die under command As we make our final stand As we join the fallen Sons and fathers born to die Tyranny born to defy Let them hear our battle cry As we join the fallen

In Memorium 05:42
War cry, live free, fight for our liberty One flag, one god, nations of the brave Tyrant set them free they’re not your sons of anarchy Be not alone, be not afraid What cost? Blood shot, lives are taken lives are lost In death, depart from this living hell Death toll, lost soul, father, son and Holy Ghost Cry justice, ring the freedom bell They had to fight for your freedom Now there’s blood on their hands There was never a reason They don’t understand One fate, war zone, fought for freedom, died alone Last breath, another death, sanitarium War Pigs kept at bay, nobody can win the day In remembrance in Memorium Solo – Wilkinson They had to fight for your freedom Now there’s blood on their hands There was never a reason They don’t understand One fate, War zone, fought for freedom, died alone Last breath, another death, Sanitarium War Pigs kept at bay, nobody can win the day In remembrance in Memorium In remembrance In remembrance in Memorium In remembrance In remembrance in Memorium

about

10 songs of energetic heavy metal. This album features mid-paced heavy catchy numbers (Bad Attitude, Covered in Lust), faster speed-metal esque rippers (Court of Clowns, Walls Fall Down, Hell To Pay), prog-influenced epics (Shadowland, In Memoriam), and a traditional power ballad (Something to Believe In) thrown in for good measure. This has everything that Spartan Warrior are known for plus the natural expansion of ideas and influences of a band on their 4th album.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

FROM PURE STEEL RECORDS -

SPARTAN WARRIOR, who are a hugely prestigious signing at Pure Steel, are one of the hottest bands of the NWOBHM movement.

The bands debut album “Steel n‘ Chains“ and their self-titled second album which were released during 1983 and 1984 to critical acclaim were albums of great quality and continue to attract a deserved cult status among Heavy Metal aficionados.

In 2009 the band reunited and subsequently released the “Behind Closed Eyes” album which also heralded the bands return to the live circuit both at home in the UK and abroad.

“Hell To Pay” is the bands fourth album and the 10 featured songs and the bands performances on this album provide firm evidence, if ever that were needed, that founding members David and Neil Wilkinson have lost nothing of their original power and appeal.

Harnessing the force of a line up that has essentially been together since mid 2011 the band deliver 45 minutes of quality hard rock infused heavy metal.
Drawing on influences as thunderous as Saxon and as melodic as UFO, Spartan Warrior show their dexterity as song writers and performers.

Driven by the powerhouse rhythm section of James Charlton (Drums) and Tim Morton (Bass) Spartan Warrior launch a heavy metal attack on tracks such as “Walls Fall Down”, “Fallen”, “In Memorium” and the title track “Hell To Pay” whilst equally delivering the sublime balladry of “Something to Believe In” and the hook laden choruses of “Lettin Go” and “Bad Attitude”.

The twin guitar attack of Neil Wilkinson and Dan Rochester is a force to be reckoned with and the vocals of David Wilkinson have lost none of their characteristic bite.

Spartan Warrior have delivered an album of great quality and which is truly representative of the bands status as a stunning live act.

The Union Jack is flown high above Pure Steel HQ... are you ready!
