about

A mysterious demo tape recently arrived at Dr. Light Studios.

Wrapped in parchment and sealed with wax, the only correspondence included with the cassette was a note reading:

Release me.
-The Belmonts

Could it be, this fabled band is more than just a rumor? Tales of an obscure outfit hailing from Romania have followed us like a phantom - doppelgängers from another place and time whose sound and story are eerily similar to our own...

Who are we to reject their request? We digitized the tape, and here are the results.

The Megas present: The Belmonts.

Track Name: Bloody Tears
the land is wrought with terror
he roams the countryside
they call him vampire killer
wipe the blood from your eyes

seeking the ancient weapon
a journey far from done
racing the setting sun
this battle must be won

these bloody tears fall
blinded for ten thousand years
this nightmare just keeps getting worse
what a horrible night to have a curse

this bloodline’s sole devotion
is ending evil's reign
standing upon the shoulders
ancestors rise again
he's found another token
to bring about the end
the dark will rise again
given flesh by sin

these bloody tears fall
blinded for ten thousand years
this nightmare just keeps getting worse
what a horrible night to have a curse

and so, the shiver of the night arrives
the rite that will save their lives
this family damned to fight
the demon's gift of eternal night
and now, the quest consumes his heart
a marked man slowly torn apart
in these 8 accursed years
he’s been drowning in his tears
bloody tears

these bloody tears fall
blinded for ten thousand years
this nightmare just keeps getting worse
what a horrible night to have a curse
Track Name: Heart of Fire
The reaper takes what's his
That is what they say
He wants to take your life
It won't be this day

You can feel it burn
Somewhere deep within

You can hear them scream
What is it they say?
Who's imprisoned here?
Is it you, or they?

You can feel it burn
Somewhere deep within
Death comes for all men
Now you come for him

You will not be denied
Death takes no bribe
He can't stop you tonight
Your heart of fire burns inside
This heart of fire burns tonight

They cannot cage what's in your heart
Tonight tonight tonight

You cannot leave this place
That is what they say
The keeper has the key
But you found the way

You can feel it burn
Feel the flames surround

From the darkness you
You can hear him say
He has the power here
You will take it away

You can feel it burn
Feel the flames surround
You can see his fear
As you strike him down

You will not be denied
Death takes no bribe
He can't stop you tonight
Your heart of fire burns inside
This heart of fire burns tonight

They cannot cage what's in your heart
Tonight tonight tonight tonight
And now you see what sets apart
Tonight tonight tonight tonight
They cannot stop you now, no
Nothing can stop you now
Let the flames consume you
Let the fire burn
Track Name: Out of Time
a lifetime of training, a legacy of pain
bringing honor to those with the name
portraits of heroes, from his recall
faces torn from their place on the wall

nexus of evil, a castle of ash
the existence of man slipping into the past
he carries the burden, now nearing the peak
perhaps he will find the redemption he seeks

there's something here
a staircase to darkness appears
out of time

saving this dying land
the hourglass, it runs out of sand
shedding his human lies
tonight, the lord of darkness shall rise

the bone dust, it settles between the gears
machinery powered by mortal fear
blood is the fabric that covers the stair
the word of his master becoming his prayer

behold the omen, eclipse of the moon
a convergence of evil awaits in this room
a demon resides in this living corpse
cut off the head and another springs forth

this can't be real
an end to this nightmare revealed
out of time

saving this dying land
the hourglass, it runs out of sand
shedding his human lies
tonight, the lord of darkness shall rise

evil, it stands at midnight
weapons, they flash in the moonlight
now it's time to strike this demon down once and for all
the moment of truth
If it's lost, the legacy shatters
the strength of his ancestors gather
to say:

Simon fight, for the good of all mankind!

saving this dying land
the hourglass, it runs out of sand
shedding his human lies
tonight, the lord of darkness shall rise

(there’s something here)
saving this dying land
(an end to this nightmare revealed)
the hourglass, it runs out of sand
(this can’t, be real)
shedding his human lies
(out of time)
tonight, the lord of darkness shall rise
tonight, the lord of darkness shall rise
tonight, the lord of darkness shall, rise.
