"Crushing Belial" as written by and Jonathan Donais Matthew Bachand....
First strike of the creation
Shakes the earth at its very core
Pangea shattered, humanity is scattered
Separation for evermore

Eternal conflict, waged since the dawn of time
A delicate balance waits this evil seems to be undermined
As the battle lines are drawn and the kingdoms choosing sides
Concealed from his light abandon all that unifies

Been fooled so long by the lies of this unholy adversary
Flee the lies, the godhead has been split, exiled by mankind
Although we're out of reach
His message transcending time

As the battle lines are drawn
And the kingdoms choosing sides
Concealed from his light abandon all that unifies
Been fooled so long by the lies of this unholy adversary

How can we free this world, it soon will melt away
As we await the wrath of a God betrayed
How can we free this world, it soon will melt away
As we await the wrath of a God betrayed

Rise stand take over, we are crushing Belial
Rise stand take over, we are crushing Belial

Alone I am feeling caught within it's wind
When I noticed all hope is lost and blown away
Never knowing what may come
Never showing what's been done

Realized potential so long in denial
Cast off this shadow, escaping Belial
Redemption of the forgotten
Redemption of the forgotten

How can we free this world, it soon will melt away
As we await the wrath of a God betrayed
How can we free this world, it soon will melt away
As we await the wrath of a God betrayed

Rise stand take over, we are crushing Belial
Rise stand take over, we are crushing Belial

    General Commentin reference to the meaning of 'crushing belial', i think it may have to do with the character of belial from Milton's Paradise Lost... "Belial - One of the principal devils in Hell. Belial is an embodiment of sloth and inactivity. His eloquence and learning is great, and he is able to persuade many with his faulty reasoning."
    So from what i gather the song is about choosing between good and evil as the demons/angels do in Paradise Lost...
    "Concealed from his light. Abandon all that unifies.
    Been fooled so long by the lies of this unholy adversary
    Flee the lies"
    its worth looking into if you get a chance: sparknotes.com/poetry/paradiselost/

    General CommentSykotic...he only wrote the guitar riff. It would make sense he plays it flawlessly, given that and all the rehearsal time.

    Shadows Fall is not surprising at all. Another pissed off band...

    General CommentI knew that this song had some religious concept behind it (being that "belial" is a term for "devil"), but bijanbwb made it clear for me - it's deciding between good and evil.
    P.S. Filth, Shadows Fall is not "another pissed off band". None of their songs are "pissed off".
