about

Achren Glasgow, UK

Described as 'underground titans' and 'a fearsome live act' by leading UK metal magazines and culturally significant enough for the British Library to archive their work, Achren are a terrifying intrusion into the lives of the ordinary people who encounter them. Achren's music is dominated by jagged riffs, dark melody and overlaid with vocal expressions of destruction and madness. ... more

Track Name: Impaled
Die on the spike for all your hatred
Killed by the piercing sharpened rod
Eternal pain for you, my friend
Hang on the spike like the new dead god
Laugh as the blood runs down the spike
Scorn for those that do this to you
Pain is joy for this sweet end
No one can endure - THIS IS SUFFERING!

They thought they'd kill you dead today
The sight of blood lights up your eyes
The spike holds no fucking fear for you
You're not the only one who'll die
Intestinal gore runs from your mouth
Stopping not at all your vile hate speech
This iron spike is slick and red
You'll linger in their prayers FOREVER!

Hang like a martyr
Grin as you drip blood
Curse like a demon
Die like a true god
Feel your life slip away as secrets fill your heart
When you rise again, tear this world apart
Transform with pain, let the blood spill
You live again to laugh and scream and KILL!

Piercing flesh, dripping blood, sharpened spear
Show no fear, laugh at death, savour pain
Blood in mouth, blood on spike, blood on earth
Screaming pain, wisdom gained, god of all
God of death, spewing bile, secrets learnt
Dying true, bloody pain, for nine days
Blood in mouth, blood on spike, blood on earth
Screaming pain, wisdom gained, god of all
Track Name: The Way of the Twilight... or the Aura of Flies
Open up, bleeding heart
A damaged mind, a work of art
Secret pain in the night
Comes the dark, ready to fight
Open up, bleeding heart
All alone, mind comes apart

The Way of the Twilight or the Aura of Flies
Choose one - Choose one and one of us dies
The Way of the Twilight or the Aura of Flies
Choose one! CHOOSE!

Eating fear and loneliness
Join us for dark promises
Take this path, your only hope
The other choice: the end of a rope
Come with me into the night
See the darkness; no shining light

Open up, no more heart
Slashed canvas; destroyed art
A bleeding mind: next to excise
Complete the task, you know it's wise

Random deaths, your new found pride
Insert the blade and slash it wide
Down this road you must go
Lest ye die, it must be so
You need to act to let it grow
Dementia calls and you must go
Track Name: Bastards of the Gallows or Bastards on the Rack
I name you all a bastard and bastards they must die
Bastards on the gallows or bastards on the rack
Hate is what I stand for and hate I will let fly
Suffer for my glory, suffer for your pain
Suffer for my madness and all I stand to gain
Hanging lifeless corpses, rid the world of bastards
Bastards on the gallows or bastards on the rack

Fucking bloody bastards pollute this world of mine
Bastards on the gallows or bastards on the rack
Using my resources, wasting breath and time
Hanging in their nooses, hanging in the trees
Hanging from the gallows - Righteous killing sprees
Torture all the bastards then just let them die
Bastards on the gallows or bastards on the rack

Hate crime for pride - bastards slaughtered
Pure world torture - murdered bastards
Killing bastards for my empire
Terrorising human wreckage
Hang the impure - need to see pain
Too late to stop, killing goes on
Agony in the death chambers - Bastards all will DIE!

Hate crime for my pride
Rid the world of bastards
Pure world of my reign
They will all fucking pay

I hate this world I live in - Bastards everywhere
Bastards on the gallows or bastards on the rack
Punishment for all those that steal my proud empire
I'm one to change this, I'm the one who'll act
I'm the world's true leader and I cannot be attacked
Killing all the bastards is my holy right
Bastards on the gallows or bastards on the rack

Savage fucking beatings and wear the bastards' mark
Bastards on the gallows or bastards on the rack
The rack it is a weapon of pain and fear and pain
Suffer for my glory, suffer for your pain
Suffer for my madness and all I stand to gain
Bastards, they will suffer and then they will be hanged
Bastards on the gallows or bastards on the rack

Wait for the time
Kill on my word
For all of Earth
KILL
Bastards on the gallows or bastards on the rack
Track Name: Fuck it Hard
Power you can never fucking have
Sons of the ancient nation
Bloody corpses lie all around
Killed - broken
Spawn of unnatural union
Son of a bitch and a retard
Cut yourself and die
We don't fucking care

FUCK IT HARD

All of your blood is mine
In you I see suffering shapes
Feel hate of ungodly power
Suffer, ingrate
I am master of your soul
And I am soulless

Always hold the winning card
Cannot die, I'll tell you why
Always hold the winning card
Fuck it Hard
Track Name: Fury of the Northmen
Viking madmen attacking in their longboats
Merciless and murderous they put you to the sword
Raping your women and killing all your holy men
Save us, oh lord, from the fury of the Northmen

Writhing in your pain
Slaughtered by the Northmen

Fire and sword are the tribute of a hated god
Desecrate the altar and burn the corpses of the priests
Savagery and butchery are the only answer to your please
Save us, oh lord, from the fury of the Northmen
Track Name: The Forgotten King
So you want to be immortal?
Listen to the King
Dressed in yellow rags
A drunk old man will give you all
Rob the sacred temples
Take seven holy totems
Kill seven true believers
Spread death on this broken land

NO!
NO!
What is it I have to do? I don't want to kill for you; I just want to live forever
I may be drunk, but I'm not so clever
Don't break the oath. The oath
How many died for you?
Undead old man; Priest of Death
Tell me I won't die cold and lonely; you tricked me into murder foul
I need to be remembered
I never meant to break the oath
I broke the oath. I cannot go home

Bring me the cursed book.
Bring me the pallid mask.
Invade the heart of earth
Start the war to end the Earth
The sword you hold is of a god
Wind and fire you control
Kill your gods and kill yourself
Allow my wretched life to end.
Track Name: Darkest Day
Cold on high
Dark Sunlight
Ash I see
Grief my birthright
Ash in heart
Crown of lies
Fall by lust
And that heart dies

Incapable of hate and fear
Pain on pain and wind and dust is all I see
Ripped from soul, wed to grief
Drink to the bitter dregs this cup of woe I've poured for thee
Sun won't rise, cold you feel
I did this, I've fallen from the blessed heights
Darkest day, wolf eats the Moon

Fall broken
Cursed emperor
Twisted darkness
Sane no more
Freezing darkness
Evil, empty
Fates hate me
Fates destroy me

Blinded by the ashes
Wounded by the dark star
Broken by fall
He's fallen so far
The day is dark
And choking smoke rises up
Swallow this - now I see my Darkest Day
Track Name: Manuel's Mile
Visceral hate - The coming of storms
Pleasure of the lifeless state; blugeoned human worms
Ravenous fire, by chance I strike and kill
Hunting for the scream in desire
Killed for the urge, slaughtered for the sport
The demon that possesses is my joyeous, twisted mind
Raped in the dark; strangled, left for dead
Laughingly defile my prey on Manuel's Mile

Shot in the night - A family cruelly slain
The thill of the blood in my perfect madman's sight
I'll kill and I'll rape; I cannot - will not - stop
Amusement from the murdering
Possessed by myself, the lord of sudden death
Killing gives a sense of life; my gory, bloodstained soul
I pass in the night, murder in my wake
Ripping, tearing from my mind exalted fear and pain

Turn up the radio...I'll go quietly...

Kill in the darkness, feed the twisted bloodlust
Embrace demonic hatred; kill to see death
Unrepentant evil, pride in killing
Murder is the only reason for my life
Track Name: Wings of War
Fly on the Wings of War
Separate your limbs in a
Violent orgy of bloody death
Bleed on your homeland's earth
Strangle with your intestines
Wrapped around your broken twisted neck

Marching into designated terrriory
Mercy unknown in killing frenzy
Psychopathic stabbings allowing me to think
Lines and lines of faceless monsters
Slaughtering, slavering, are your masters
Flying on the cursed Wings of War
Track Name: Pestilence
Skeletal hands reach out to offer death
The plague foretold in the prophet's dying breath
The stench of decay on the fourth part of the Earth
On the wings of the storm...
The spreading death, it taints your blood
You shed your final tears with certainty
The cancer grows, it's mankind's final years
The father of filth has come to set you free

Corrupted flesh and the stench of rotting lives
Scouring the skin and burning out the eyes
Break the seal as the madman prophesised
Saved from the sword to die of pestilence
You cannot halt the tide of plague
The crumbling ashes of humanity
The searing pain, the agony
THE AGONY!

Suffer, weakened
The blight of decay it rots your bones
Infection, destruction
The mouth starts to bleed and the breath grows short

Skeletal hands reach out to offer death
The plague manifest in your painful final breath
The stench of decay on the fourth part of the Earth
On the wings of the storm...
Writhing in your misery
On the corpses of your family
Darkness of death comes finally
