PeterDark Very cool stuff...
remember the energy you felt first time you listened to Iron Maiden' self-titled album or Metallica's Kill'em All? Favorite track: King of the Road.

Lute FP Killer classic metal, updated. Hints of early Maiden riffage, melodic vocals reminiscent of early Scorpions, song structures amped up to Speed Metal specs. These guys shred.

That's the sound of this Belgian retro band .

Track Name: Midnight Murder
Clear the mind, a walk in the park
The sun goes down, you’re alone in the dark
Hold my hand, I will take you away
In the night there's no-one but me

Scream as loud as you can
There never will be heard from you again

Trust no-one based on what you see
The man next door, the man in the street
Cold as ice, fear me for your life
Take your pick, the hammer or the knife

Midnight murder! Killer in the night
Midnight murder! Hidden from the light (2x)

Your eyes get dark as your skin turns pale
The moon is bright, it reflects on your face
Live or die, the choice is mine
Spill your blood, sacramental wine

Your suffering makes me stronger
The torture will last a little longer

Your smile is gone, you started to cry
Caress your skin with the edge of a knife
Wipe your tears and look at the sky
The choice is yours, a finger or an eye

Midnight murder! Killer in the night
Midnight murder! Hidden from the light (2x)

You’re screaming for someone to save you
But no-one can hear you from here
The sound of the night makes you nervous
You know that the end is near
I’m evil, I’m mean, but I’m silent and clean
There’s no need to beg for your life
‘Cause before you know it this all will be over
And I’ll disappear in the light

Feel your heart as it beats in your throat
You suffocate, you can’t breath anymore
Fear the face, the collector of souls
In disguise, unrecognizable

The wolves are howling to the moon
The crows will be feasting on you soon

Never doubt, a killer’s mind
I won’t rest, until I take a life
Just for thrill, the fear in your eyes
Go to sleep, sacrifice your life

Midnight murder! Killer in the night
Midnight murder! Hidden from the light (2x)
Track Name: King of the Road
I know what I need. Oh, I’ve got a need for speed
Get the pedal to the metal. Flashing like a laser beam
White lines are rushing by. Don’t know where I’ll sleep tonight
Free as a bird. I hitchhike from town to town

When I feel the fire, a burning desire
When I hit the road I explode
It’s like fuel and fire, only faster and higher
So don’t try to chase me
I’M THE KING OF THE ROAD

Baby don’t stop me now, you never gonna slow me down
My eyes on the horizon. I’ll show you the tail lights
Adrenaline is kicking in. Every day, another sin
Makes me feel that I’m still alive, that fire burning deep inside

Know that a dire demon is driving
He’s stronger and wilder than before
The road is on fire, I’m burning the tires
Do you dare to chase me
I’M THE KING OF THE ROAD

When I feel the fire, a burning desire
When I hit the road I explode
It’s like fuel and fire, only faster and higher
So don’t try to chase me
I’M THE KING OF THE… KING OF THE… KING OF THE ROAD!
Track Name: Kids of Rock 'n Roll
Fighting our way through this lost society
Never give up until we get what we need
Metal is still alive and it always will be
This is how we roll, we don’t need to be saved

We are wild and we are free
The worst kids you ever have seen
And when we die we go straight to hell
Faster than a cannonball
WE ARE THE KIDS OF ROCK N’ ROLL

The fire is still burning deep in our hearts
Keeping it true, keeping it alive
You’ll notice us when we’re in town
We drink, we rock, we never keep it down

You know it is our time today
We metal maniacs, we reign
This ain’t over, it has just begun
Brothers, sisters, standing strong
WE ARE THE KIDS OF ROCK N’ ROLL

Don’t you say that we’re too loud
This is what our life is about
We scream and shout until our lungs pop out
All for one and one for all
WE ARE THE KIDS OF ROCK N’ ROLL
Track Name: Fly High
Look at me now and how I still survive
You can’t see I’m lying when you look into my eyes
I’m a self-destructive maniac, my eyes left open wide
The light that once was there is gone, I’m darker than the night

Leave me alone, reaching for the sky
Just give me more, give me wings and teach me how to fly
I don't know what I’m searching for, don’t know why I try
Just tell me what do I live for ‘cause I feel dead inside

FLY HIGH

Look at me now, I’ve been way to deep
You never have to face yourself when you are asleep
It’s hard to know I’ve turned down my friends and family
But that time is over, my first promise I will keep

FLY HIGH
Track Name: Speed Queen
You go fast through the night
Mysterious angel in the light
If only I could reach for you
I only want you by my side
But you’re the Speed Queen

Your appearance takes my breath away
The hidden cards you’ll never play
If only I could make you mine
Even though you’d never stay
‘Cause you’re the Speed Queen

One look in her eyes makes you blind
A cold rush of darkness through your mind
She’s thunder and fire, your life on a wire
Watch out ‘cause you don’t know the SPEED QUEEN

What you have is all I seek
Without you I ain’t complete
A desire unfulfilled
You’re the one thing that I need
You’re the Speed Queen

I wait all night for you to call
What I have, I’d leave it all
I’d follow you around the world
Come on over, take me now
My Speed Queen

Seek no sense ‘cause you won’t find
Your memories and future will ignite
But you have to know she lives her life on her own
And that is because she’s the SPEED QUEEN

One look in her eyes makes you blind
A cold rush of darkness through your mind
She’s thunder and fire, your life on a wire
Watch out ‘cause you don’t know the SPEED QUEEN
Track Name: Stay Drunk
Friday night, we’re hittin’ the bar
Just the boys having a damn good time
Tonight we get higher than the stars
We drink until we drop, that’s just who we are

It’s drinking time, better keep up
Keep the beer flowing, never stop
We don’t care about tomorrow tonight
Rehab is for quitters, gotta stay drunk

STAY! STAY DRUNK!

Speed Queen is playing tonight
They’re hammered as fuck, but still looking tight
The crowd is going crazy and wild
They know what to do, they stay drunk

STAY! STAY DRUNK!

Saturday night, we’re hittin’ the bar
Just the boys having a damn good time
Tonight we get higher than the stars
We drink until we drop, we stay drunk

STAY! STAY DRUNK!
