Lyric themesEdit

  • "Farewell Norfolk!" tells of the mythical disappearance of a 1/5 battalion of the Norfolk Regiment in 1915, during the Gallipoli Campaign.
  • "Zombie" tells a horror story about a zombie who rises from his grave to avenge his murder.
  • "Antichrist" features a view of the Book of Revelation from the devil's point of view. According to several band members, the song was influenced by The Omen horror films franchise. Later Valery Kipelov refused to sing that song at any concerts due to his religious views and fans' wrong understanding of the song.
  • "You'd Better Believe Me" is a sequel to "Hero of Asphalt", telling of the deceased biker's post-death experience.
  • "Blood for Blood" is about the fate of Pontius Pilate, and is based on the novel The Master and Margarita by Mikhail Bulgakov.
  • The song "You'd Better Believe Me" was translated into English and was featured on Aria's compilation album Shtil'.
