about

Hobgoblin was my first shot at writing any kind of horror music and served as a sort of precursor to a lot of the music I would go on to write later on, and even now. This EP contains the demo and final versions of all four songs I ever wrote as Hobgoblin, and also contains an acoustic version of "One Night In The Carpathians".

Track Name: Mistress Of The Night
She dresses in white with a fire in her eyes
Like starlight and dancing to thunder
She's breathing ghosts under high, lightless skies
How long has she hungered?

Tonight, she'll bring me to life
And take a little more light from inside
My mistress of the night
Not like this, just leave me to die

Red under streetlights is flowing out
Her wrist to her lips and she's covered in blood
Heart in my throat, her true color is showing now
An everlasting love

Tonight while I'm still alive
She'll take a little more life from inside
My mistress of the night
Forever lost in the ice of her eyes
Track Name: We Walk The Earth
Another night lost, aghast
The aftermath of death is black
Out from the corners of my eyes
Cemetery gates that I’ll never pass
You can’t save us again
From where I am, there’s no going back
We decide to walk alive
Amidst the mortal men

Can you pull me back from the angels
That call me into the light?
Out from the haunting darkness of night
I arise

Here we go, gnashing teeth again
Thrashing deep ‘til our bitter end
A zombie pacified
With no arms or legs or breath to expend
Stalk beneath the full moon’s ascent
Witch’s black magic marionettes
Remember everyday from here on out
Belongs to the living dead
Track Name: One Night In The Carpathians
Moonlight streaks the sky
Bats casting shadows below, crossing the forest
The wolves stalk through the trees
Ghost lights dance out from the open mouths of corpses

Try as you might, you'll never stay me
Your crosses and torches, your lights and pitchforks
And time after time, you'll never save me
From this lonely cold

Follow me up to my castle on the hill
Down into the cellar where I sleep every day
In a casket closed with my friends growing old
Bound to the walls in chains, they're screaming
Track Name: Gravediggers
We march to the cemetery gates
Up from their coffins, the dead reawake
Shrieks on the wind and a full moon eclipse
Legions of the damned dance in circles of six

The dead will conquer tonight
If we don't take a stand together
Aim for the head, give them eternal rest
Forever and ever

The devils
The vampires, lycans, zombies, and the dead pretenders
With rusted shovels, we rise
To face the midnight, no, we'll never surrender
We're gravediggers
There's blood on our faces and dirt on our hands
Exhuming for the sake of humankind
Burying the shadows, no place left to hide

This city of the dead, they're making their homes
Among the broken tombstones and fences of bone
A curse bestowed upon these lands
Hordes of undead puppeted by necromantic hands
Track Name: One Night In The Carpathians (Acoustic)
Moonlight streaks the sky
Bats casting shadows below, crossing the forest
The wolves stalk through the trees
Ghost lights dance out from the open mouths of corpses

Try as you might, you'll never stay me
Your crosses and torches, your lights and pitchforks
And time after time, you'll never save me
From this lonely cold

Follow me up to my castle on the hill
Down into the cellar where I sleep every day
In a casket closed with my friends growing old
Bound to the walls in chains, they're screaming
Track Name: Mistress Of The Night (Demo)
She dresses in white with a fire in her eyes

My mistress of the night
Not like this, just leave me to die

Red under streetlights is flowing out
Her wrist to her lips and she's covered in blood
Heart in my throat, her true color is showing now
An everlasting love

Tonight while I'm still alive
She'll take a little more life from inside
My mistress of the night
Forever lost in the ice of her eyes
Track Name: We Walk The Earth (Demo)
Another night lost, aghast
