about

Khepra Istanbul, Turkey

The band was formed in 2009
and within the following years, the sound of the band evolved into having more middle eastern/Anatolian influences and got more aggressive as well.

With the new style, they changed the band name to KHEPRA. They have recorded their first full length album "Cosmology Divine" in 2015. They are aiming for a release in the second half of 2016.

Track Name: Göç
In the lands of Central Asia
We had lived in prosperity
Till one day
When the Khan was
Tricked by the enemy

He gave the sacred stone
For the return of a Chinese queen
Unity of the land was broken

Then it all happened
Every creature in the land started to sound
An elegy in unison they cried

Begged to Sky-God for a way out
Then suddenly a mighty wolf
Come out of nowhere
Showed us the way

Göç ! Göç ! Göç !
Cried all the land
It was our destiny
Since the creation

In the dark before the dawn
Together we walked
Leaving our land
Leaving our life behind
Following the mighty wolf
Following the signs
We kept marching on
By day and by night

Kökten, Gök Tanri’dan
Kutsanmis bu toprak
Lanet var ancak
Kurtulus intikam


Intikam artik... Ölüm bizi...
...Çözüm degil ...Çagiriyor

Ben tanri gibi, tanridan olan
Ölümün kendisi, önümde diz çök

In the dark before the dawn
Together we walked
Leaving our land
Leaving our life behind
Following the mighty wolf
Following the signs
We kept marching on
By day and by night

Yüce Kagan der ki :
Kader önümüzdeki düzlüklerde
Batidan gelen ugultularin
Umut veren sesleriyle
Unutulmayan bir çiglik yükseldi
Rüzgarin sarkilari bir tek söz söyledi
Göç ! (x7)
Track Name: Storm Avenger
Through the misty forests I walk
As the mighty trees grow old
Tales don't contain my name
Now every one fears my fame
Lost my mercy such a shame
Storm avenger they call my name

Nature flows through my eyes
Pagan blood fortifies
A constant thought in my mind
See through hate but eyes are blind
This fate I have been bound
No other life can be found

Storm Avenger breaches and takes out
Destroys everything on his way
Years went by since this fiend was trapped
No man can set it free.

Stars glint overhead
To unknown dimensions I fall
Drifting far, far away
And down

On an isolated rock there sits a grief-stricken man
With his head bowed down to his knees
Alone he curses his pride

Storm Avenger breaches and takes out
Destroys everything on his way
Years went by since this fiend was trapped
No man can set it free.

In the white light of the moon,
See me descend to emptiness
I count the years that I've wandered
A distant path now leads to blood

Storm Avenger breaches and takes out
Destroys everything on his way
Years went by since this fiend was trapped
No man can set it free.
Track Name: Sons of Earth and Sky
Not many trees lay shadows to this land
we are the roots that lurk this wasteland
Since many generations
We have lived our pagan lives

Under the Sacred Tree which is
So old and so mighty
Witness it all,
As mother earth and father sky
give birth to a new day

Unless the sky above cracks
Ground below shakes
Who can spoil and shatter our faith
To our beloved land

Our lives bloom in this tree
We are the Sons of Earth and Sky
Winds whisper to our soul
We are the Sons of Earth and Sky

See the signs of this great power
Thunder Rumbles across the sky
Now our spirits are one with the land
No other light shall ever shine

Not many trees lay shadows to this land
we are the roots that lurk this wasteland
Since many generations
We have lived our pagan lives
Track Name: Rite of the Fallen ( Live@Metal Head's Mission - UKRAINE)
Standing under a starless night
To see the meadows of the land
Some of us were born to give life
where some of us to take
Beyond your imagination
Journey through the abyss was my choice


My fierce and my true enemy Tigan
He was lost he was weak
I was there to take my revenge
I was there to kill him again

I've wandered the underworld
My skin turned pale
it's the price of the dark art
Eternal darkness covering the earth
As I who makes the stars dim rise

Crush his bones, make him suffer
steal his beloved horse
possess the beast's soul
Deadly wounds he has suffered

I've wandered the underworld
My skin turned pale
it's the price of the dark art
Eternal darkness covering the earth
As I who makes the stars dim rise
