"Metalstorm/Face The Slayer" as written by and K. King J. Hanneman....
A misty night, a perfect night
Beneath the cold of the frozen star
You feel the fright, you know I'm near
You never should have come this far
I am alive, you can't kill me
I will survive eternity

Go through the fire walk past the dead
Lost in my eternal maze
Your heart pounds through the mist filled air
Your concentration breaks for me to strike
You've cowered down, you've broken the chain
Now I can freeze your burning eyes

You see me lift the axe,
(As) It plunges through your shield
You now begin to panic
As you see your chances grow slim
Your running through the endless maze
(You) Turn and I'll be there
A force too strong for you to fight
Your end I'll see tonight
("I'll see your end tonight")

You think you can destroy me?
You'd better think again
I am eternal terror my quest will never end
I'll trap you in the pentagram
And seal your battered tomb
Your life is just another game
For Satan's night of doom

    General CommentMetalstorm !! I've been haunted by the intro of this song and also used it to scare the living shit out of my ex one night...hah! great intro and to think this was from their 1st album Show no mercy(1983).
    'twas the begining of thrash ,with the path set by Metallica's Kill 'Em All an' this album! and oh my what was to come...

    My InterpretationIt sounds like the Minotaur from ancient Greek mythology. It's sacrifices would be forced into it's underground maze where they'd be hunted down and killed be the Minotaur.

    This is among the top slayer songs and the lyrics is literally "literally amazing"
    Especially the "beneath the cold of the frozen star" part

    General CommentWith the path set by Welcome to Hell by Venom you mean, right? Oh, I see you one of those sods who bought into the myth that Metallica were the first thrash band... WRONG.

    Does the intro remind anyone else of Creeping Death by Metallica?
