about

Somewhere in the desert, a drifter happens upon the clandestine rituals of the Mountain King and witnesses the reanimation of an army of corpses. Though he attempts to flee, he is captured and imprisoned deep within the iron mountain. Desperate, he calls upon ancient gods to rescue him from his plight. His prayers are answered and the Mountain King is deposed. Yet instead of being grateful the drifter imprisons the god who saved him, becoming the Mountain King himself.

lyrics

on Iron Mountain, dead bodies gleam
i caught em dancing in the night
i couldn't count em, too many men to dream
atop the pyramid of light

mama, don't cry for me
mama, the mountain king won't set me free

in crystal desert, dead armies dragged me down
there's no escaping from the law
beneath the mountain, i spoke immortal names
hoping the gods would hear my call

on Iron Mountain, can't hear me scream
the god who saved me down below
i trussed and bound him, now i'm the Mountain King
but still my body feeds the crows
