1.
As I enter the gates of Hades The more I see the more I wish to die Tombs and corpses the rulers of this world Spirits rising to grant me eternal pain Hidden for years, Hatred corroding his veins An urge to defile the temple And crush the hideous lord Slay, slay them, profaner Smash the cross and free us from secular chains Burn, burn them, profaner Nothing but ash shall enter in those holy lungs A blasphemous need Smoldering through centuries A constant dream Of idols in flames To sin is to live A new order he brings By the sign of the pentagram Ride freedom’s wings
2.
You sense the presence of the Devil as fear crawls under your skin sweaty hands hold tight the cross of jesus as hordes of black arise It's like a jump into the dark void with your feet tied absurd beliefs of blind salvation time to let the saints cry He’s there, but you won’t see him His face, grinning with spite Your nightmares don’t disappear with daylight Still sure about that wretched dude? Await the blackest of omens! Let the whips crack, unholy and severe Let those bloody wounds delight the infernal charioteer
3.
Still it’s 1984 Under black marks, the bells of war Lose all control Fat, greedy leaders, prediction foretold Storm of damnation unleashed Dystopia so real, Hades revealed Is this conspiracy? 2020, nothing is real It’s the rite of the goat, Smash the cross, kiss the horns, swear the oath Dead souls obeying their needs The reaper is putting your mind at ease You’re trusting demons in disguise Sacrifice, armageddon of lies Can’t stop this endless dormancy Raise the dead, witchcraft unseen Missile attack necromansy Drop the bomb, crimes so obscene It’s the rite of the goat, Smash the cross, kiss the horns, swear the oath It’s the rite of the goat, You better worship the star they eternally loathe
4.
Nothing but a dying truth / Staggering through centuries Metal is the deathly scythe / Ready to slit the throat of the priest You will feel the darkness It’s so poisonous Inhale the decibels Ohhh it’s so ravenous Summon the evil lords/Join ‘em in eternal sin Eye for eye, tooth for tooth / So naïve, the christian youth Nothing sacred, no one’s pure / I fear this shit will still endure You will feel the darkness It’s so poisonous Inhale the decibels Ohhh it’s so ravenous Summon the evil lords / Join ‘em in eternal sin Ahhhhh it’s unholier than you think Ahhhhh in christ’s pure blood you will sink Morbid visions warning you / The lower world will rise above Await and hail his second death / We will drink to his last breath
5.
Into an abyss of metallic frenzy Insanity alert, it ain’t no fucking fancy Can’t you feel this is gonna hurt? Souls cry out, tearing your hopes apart. Red clouds of blood, be ready to sharp the knife Slave to the power of death, tonight’s the night Now do it, crave it, die at our master’s behest Clench your fist, these riffs won’t leave you no rest When Metal calls your name, feel the thunder in your veins In the darkness you shall fall… Don’t worry it’s your fate, wield the axe and pass the gate To this world you don’t belong… Restless and wild, wretched our dreams Into another dimension our hunger will breed A sense of belonging they’ll never, ever perceive Accept this hell, at least you won’t be deceived… When Metal calls your name, feel the thunder in your veins In the darkness you shall fall… Don’t worry it’s your fate, wield the axe and pass the gate To this world you don’t belong…
6.
As you walk the path of sin Countless shadows crawl within A slave of bats, of graves and dust A thousand vices, unholy lust Malicious… Seditious… Like a cobra, you catch their eyes Corrupt their souls with Satan’s might All you can do is fuel their obsession They beg for you, let’s start the ignition Malicious thee, volcano of lies Demonic she, like dangerous tides Insane, deranged, inferno profound Seditious now, forever unbound Malicious… Seditious… Drown! J.J. Priestkiller spit on that cross! World’s fate, ruled by copulation A praying mantis, you hypnotize Their filthy deeds, an endless damnation With pain and torment you take their lives Malicious…You catch their eyes Seditious… You hypnotize
7.
Born to die Live to suffer Disillusion Obey your master Regret every breath Face your life Built on fear Shattered dreams The end is near Regret every breath
8.
To die on Monday, that would be great, I hate that day, it's dark and grey, for my mind... Ohhhh if I’m gonna die, I wanna die on Monday, let's celebrate Ohhh if I’m gonna die, I wanna die on Monday, you won't debate Those empty faces, stand next to me, that's not my home, my soul is free and I cry... The highway road, the sun is high, the wind it blows, the sky is bright, it's all out there... Ohhhh if I’m gonna die, I wanna die on Monday, let's celebrate Ohhhh if I’m gonna die, I wanna die on Monday, I just can't wait Work kills man, oi! oi! oi! oi! It's 8 AM, a constant tension, who are these people? Incomprehension. And I scream... Your witless babble, that silly shoes, all your problems, won't pay my dues, and I lose... Ohhhh if I’m gonna die, I wanna die on Monday, let's celebrate Ohhhh if I’m gonna die, I wanna die on Monday, now it's too late...
9.
While people starve they say there's a lack of faith you keep on hoping in their heaven as you die Once again history is forgotten welcome sweet lies more churches than sharp minds you'll realize that all this is... Beyond... Beyond... The help of prayers False idols rise This dormancy will never end A fucking cancer at birth as holy water wets your skin The worst offender of them all has never existed still hanging on your home's safe walls knowing Satan is just well hidden Beyond... Beyond...The help of prayers Still millions of devotees, thinking they're floating on safe seas...

about

DYING VICTIMS PRODUCTIONS is proud to present BUNKER 66’s highly anticipated fourth album, Beyond the Help of Prayers, on CD and vinyl LP formats.

Since 2007, Italy’s BUNKER 66 have been proudly (and prolifically) flying the flag of ‘80s metalpunk, all in the beloved power-trio format. Of course, the joint influence of Motörhead and Venom looms large, but equally so do homeland heroes Bulldozer, the UK’s Warfare, early Running Wild, early Bathory and Slayer, later Anti-Cimex, metal-era Gang Green, and any ‘80s recordings from Discharge and Exciter. With this robust and rust-covered foundation firmly in place, BUNKER 66 recorded a trio of cult albums for High Roller Records as well as a grip of splits with the likes of Italy’s Barbarian and Morbo, Brazil's Whipstriker, and most recently Scotland's Vuil. Simply put, they’re a cult band for cult fanatics – and we wouldn’t have it any other way!

Now, a couple years on from that last-mentioned split with Vuil comes BUNKER 66’s long-awaited fourth album, Beyond the Help of Prayers. The band’s first full-length in four years and second with the lineup of co-founders vocalist/bassist Damien Thorne and drummer Dee Dee Altar alongside ex-Schizo guitarist J.J. Priestkiller, Beyond the Help of Prayers is a refreshing blast of old air! Right from the opening, galloping minutes of “To the Gates of Death – Lair of the Profaner,” this is 666% BUNKER 66 through and through – all those above influences, all sliced and diced with the deft touch of devotees, but always brimming with a charisma that’s undeniable – and thereafter do the hits keep on coming. But, while one could say that Beyond the Help of Prayers is business as usual for the band (and we’d still love it), the album sees BUNKER 66 taking on subtly more epic touches, ones that feel almost swords & sorcery without being obvious about it, or perhaps the post-apocalyptic wasteland vibes of Dee Dee Altar’s time in Children of Technology played a significant role? Naturally, the trio keep their noses deep within their realms of the black here, and while they’re undoubtedly dirtier and more blasphemous than ever, BUNKER 66 arguably receive their best-sounding production on Beyond the Help of Prayers, which thankfully only maximizes their power that much more.

You can’t teach old dogs new tricks, and the same be said – STUNNINGLY – for BUNKER 66, for they’re Beyond the Help of Prayers!
