Play riff 4 with lyrics:
"Black wind of the dead
Inflamed my eyes to red
My brothers, wolves, servants of the night
They came from the forest
Burning eyes among the Darkness
Jaws thirsty for the blood, 
raised to moon / Hatred, longing and fear
This is the last night and the dawn will never come"

                        of Kingdom of Darkness"

                        Beats of gloom, spirits of fear
                        Triumph of unlife's Powers
                        Banners of the dead smeared in blood !
                        Black is the ultimate colour
                        Darkness is the only end
                        Evil is the right reaction
                        Death is the only mercy..."
