about

The wait is over, after more than two years since SPLIT HEAVEN’s last release, Mexico’s speed metal demons return. Their last effort, ”The Devil’s Bandit”, was released on our sub label Pure Legend, but this new album is coming back through Pure Steel Records, like we did with "Street Law“ in 2011. Now in 2016, Split Heaven is back with a vengeance with their new album “Death Rider”. They have formed an alliance with their new singer Jason Conde-Houston, from Seattle, the frontman of US Metal band Skelator.

He is strongly influenced by high pitched legends like Helstar’s James Rivera and Primal Fear’s Ralf Scheepers. As always Split Heaven is keeping it true, this time with “Painkiller” style double bass drumming, “Thundersteel” style guitar melodies, and glorious NWoBHM style solos. This album features an uptempo smasher “Speed Of The Hawk”, the spanish fistpumper “Descarga Letal” as well as the striking opener “Death Rider”. The explosive, crushing, “Death Rider” will take the hearts of many Metal maniacs by storm! Split Heaven returns stronger than ever!

Track Name: Death Rider
DEATH RIDER

(Verse 1)
On the horizon the battle is born
Marching barbarian hordes
With no sense honor, the will to fight
Killing at their accord
Villages burning through the night
Laying the people to waste
Now comes the hero with vengeance in sight
His enemies blood he will taste

Death Rider!!!

(Verse 2)
Armor clad soldier of muscle and might
He's black as the deadliest storm
Hacking and slashing through enemy ranks
Leaving their heads on the floor
Breaking their will and crushing their bones
Wishing they never had lived
They beg for mercy the Death Rider screams
“Hatred is all I will give!”

He is storming the wall
Beware the Death Rider´s call

(Chorus)
Cry for your life and none will survive
Beware of my blade for none will be saved
I am the night you will scream out of fright
Look to the light now your end is in sight

Solo 1: Armand
Solo 2: Carlo

(Chorus)
Cry for your life and none will survive
Beware of my blade for none will be saved
I am the night you will scream out of fright
Look to the light now your end is in sight

(Finale)
The Death Rider calls...
You heads will fall!
The Death Rider calls!
Track Name: Awaken The Tyrant
AWAKEN THE TYRANT

(Verse 1)
In the shadows, in the alley ways
Lies the nightmare of society
So many voices, no more choices
We must struggle for the will to be free

(Verse 2)
Once united and now divided
These are spoils of hatred and greed
Seeking power to devour
All the hopes and dreams of all who believed

(Chorus)
Awaken the Tyrant
Is he the chosen one?
Awaken the Tyrant
By god what have done
Awaken the Tyrant
Obey the bastard son
Awaken the Tyrant
Our sorrow will live on
How will we carry on

Solo 1: Carlo
Solo 2: Armand

(Chorus)
Awaken the Tyrant
Is he the chosen one?
Awaken the Tyrant
By god what have done
Awaken the Tyrant
Obey the bastard son
Awaken the Tyrant
Our sorrow will live on
Track Name: Battle Axe
BATTLE AXE

(Verse 1)
In the night, the shadows fight, the hordes approach
From distant lands they come
We will stand, with blade in hand, the lightning strikes
Ignite our destiny

(Verse 2)
They ride their demons with flame in hand
Spreading their plague across the land
Our children rot with their disease
They steal our gold and our beliefs
Enstiled our allies with pain and fear
Now they betray us they are not here
Submitting our women to be their slaves
Why would our gods punish us this way

(Bridge)
So many brothers have fallen today
I am the last of my people to stay
Those who will face me will feel my wrath
I will defile those in my path

(Chorus)
Raise the axe, the mighty axe, the battle axe
So many heads will fall
Raise the axe, the mighty axe, the battle axe
We are standing one and all

Solo 1: Carlo
Solo 2: Armand

(Bridge)
So many brothers have fallen today
I am the last of my people to stay
Those who will face me will feel my wrath
I will defile those in my path

(Chorus)
Raise the axe, the mighty axe, the battle axe
So many heads will fall
Raise the axe, the mighty axe, the battle axe
We are standing one and all
Track Name: To The Fallen
TO THE FALLEN

(Verse 1)
Now the time has come, all is said and done
We are hiding from the crossfire over head
Because we protest because we destest
The evil forces feul the fire of hatred
Fire’s a blazing all Hell is raising
They will beat us down until we are dead

(Verse 2)
We have spoken but now we’re broken
We are grasping to the edge of our dream
They had promised but now they bomb us
We are drowning in a nightmare thats so real
The pain of living is unforgiving
They will never know just how we feel

(Bridge)
United we stand we raise our hand
They’ll never break our pride
The bullets fly and people will die
We’ll never take their side

(Chorus)
We will cry out their names
So their memory remains
It will never be the same
They did not die in vain

Solos 1: Carlo
Solo 2: Armand

(Bridge)
United we stand we raise our hand
They’ll never break our pride
The bullets fly and people will die
We’ll never take their side

(Chorus)
We will cry out their names
So their memory remains
It will never be the same
They did not die in vain
Track Name: Speed Of The Hawk
SPEED OF THE HAWK

(Verse 1)
Riding with lightning, thunder and steel
Delivering madness and hatred so real
Fire and brimstone await your demise
Don't look to his eyes he'll see through your lies

(Verse 2)
Darkness descending all over your town
Fury is spreading and shaking the ground
Taking your pride and your valor away
Claiming his victory cause it's here to stay

(Bridge)
Tonight, it´s time
To see the light
Tonight, we fly
So stand and fight

(Chorus)
Speed.......... of the Hawk

We’re climbing to the stars
Speed.......... of the Hawk
When you roll the dice you never think twice
Speed.......... of the Hawk
We’re never gonna die!
Track Name: Ghost Of Desire
GHOST OF DESIRE

(Verse 1)
Face, to face, we feel, the hunger in our souls
Heart, to heart, the feeling takes control
Mind, to mind, our thoughts are unified
Eye, to eye, we feel the tears we cried

(Bridge)
It's been a long time since we spoke
But our hearts were always broke
We live so far away
I long for yesterday

(Verse 2)
To day, we live, with this pain inside
I, can see, your wounds that you can't hide
I feel, ashamed, that I had to go away
I wish, so much, that I could have stayed

(Bridge)
It's been a long time since we spoke
But our hearts were always broke
We live so far away
I long for yesterday

(Chorus)
Our hearts will break
Our worlds will shake
We’re the ghost of desire
Our love was made
Our love won't fade
We're the ghost of desire

We cannot hide
We can’t confide
We're the ghost of desire
We are as one
We are no one
We’re the ghost of desire

Solo 1: Carlo
Solo 2: Armand

(Chorus)
Our hearts will break
Our worlds will shake
We’re the ghost of desire
Our love was made
Our love won't fade
We're the ghost of desire

We cannot hide
We can’t confide
We're the ghost of desire
We are as one
We are no one
We’re the ghost of desire
Track Name: Sacrifice
SACRIFICE

(Verse 1)
So much blood spilled on this floor
To appraise the gods
Year after year our soldiers will fall
Our fate is turning
People are questioning why
Our sons are martyrs
Brandishing torches and arrows will fly
Now our town is burning

(Bridge)
Our life is in sorrow
There’s no tomorrow
Sacrifice! In the night
Sacrifice! You will die

(Verse 2)
You have been chained to the wall
Resistance is futile
Feel the emperor´s wrath of the as you fall
Your skull is crushing
Creator’s of pain by my side
This is my pleasure
Ripping and tearing your hide
Your guts are gushing

(Bridge)
Our life is in sorrow
There’s no tomorrow
Sacrifice! In the night
Sacrifice! You will die

(Chorus)
Feel the pain before it’s over
By my hand you’ll discover
That your life is just a game
By the gods you’ll know my name
Now you’ll burn in the fire
You’ll fulfill my one desire
The wind will carry out your cries
Stars will shine because you died

Solo 1: Carlo
Solo 2: Armand

(Chorus)
Feel the pain before it’s over
By my hand you’ll discover
That your life is just a game
By the gods you’ll know my name
Now you’ll burn in the fire
You’ll fulfill my one desire
The wind will carry out your cries
Stars will shine because you died
Track Name: Talking With The Devil
TALKING WITH THE DEVIL

(Verse 1)
Another sleepless night, I have paid the price
On the brink of insanity
As I lay awake at night
I feel something burning inside
Now it's calling out my name
Reminding me of sins from my past

(Bridge)
So now I stand to open up the door
A burning figure...

(Verse 2)
With eyes of fire and hands of cinder
He is waiting to capture my soul
I give myself to him
For a chance to break from this world

(Bridge)
So now I stand to open up the door
I see a burning figure rising from the floor

(Chorus)
I'm talking with the devil
THE DEVIL!!!

(Verse 3)
My heart is pounding my mind soaring
My visions blurring, I'm out of control
He awakens my free will
To seek out my fear and desire

(Bridge)
So now I stand to open up the door
I see a burning figure rising from the floor

(Chorus)
I'm talking with the devil
THE DEVIL!!!

“There is nothing inherently sacred about moral codes.
Like the wooden idols of long ago,
They are the work of human hands,
And what man has made,
Man can destroy!”

Solo 1: Carlo
Solo 2: Armand

(Chorus)
I'm talking with the devil
THE DEVIL!!!
Track Name: Descarga Letal
DESCARGA LETAL

(Verso 1)
Sin piedad, deja salir a las sombras.
Y las llamas queman con venganza, mira a los cuerpos caer.
¡Así sera! no dejemos que los nuestros hundan
los sueños creados ya están, y nuevas batallas habrá

(Puente)
Estamos poseídos no queda más, que conquistar
Enciende los caminos y jamás mires para atrás

(Coro)
Descarga Letal, ¡es puro metal!
Descarga Letal, ¡es puro metal!
Descarga Letal, ¡es puro metal!
Descarga Letal

(Verso 2)
La oscuridad, nos lleva por nuestro destino, y las fuerzas se apoderarán
Nunca podremos escapar
¡Termina ya! La locura invade la verdad, estallan las hordas del mal
¡Unidos podremos ganar!

(Puente)
Estamos poseídos no queda más, que conquistar
Enciende los caminos y jamás mires para atrás

(Coro)
Descarga Letal, ¡es puro metal!
Descarga Letal, ¡es puro metal!
Descarga Letal, ¡es puro metal!
Descarga Letal

Solo 1: Armand
Solo 2: Carlo

(Coro)
Descarga Letal, ¡es puro metal!
Descarga Letal, ¡es puro metal!
Descarga Letal, ¡es puro metal!
Descarga Letal, ¡es puro metal!
Track Name: Destructor
DESTRUCTOR

(Verso 1)
Será una noche larga un deseo inmortal
Desata la lujuria voraz
La sangre que brota, no para de extasiar
Al cuerpo que aflora

(Puente 1)
Ya llegó el momento, desgarro tus vestidos
Serás la llave de mi perversión

(Verso 2)
La luz de tu belleza, deslumbra a la ciudad
Es tiempo de atraparte
Veneno en mi conciencia, el cuerpo estallará
La luna se incendia

(Puente 2)
Ya llegó el momento, desgarro tus vestidos
Serás la llave de mi perversión
Mírame a los ojos, aviva mis sentidos
Seremos dueños de nuestra pasión

(Coro)
Destructor, destructor,
Destructor de la noche.

(Verso 3)
Tu sudor rebosa, es la fragilidad
Que agita mi respiro

(Puente 3)
Ya llegó el momento, desgarro tus vestidos
Serás la llave de mi perversión
Mírame a los ojos, aviva mis sentidos
Seremos dueños de nuestra pasión

(Coro)
Destructor, destructor,
Destructor de la noche.

Solo 1: Armand
Solo 2: Carlo

(Coro)
Destructor, destructor,
Destructor de la noche.
