"Destroyer Of Worlds" as written by and - Quorthon....
A flash like the birth of a sun
A pillar of virgin fire
Now glowing a ruby cloud
The finger of death reaching higher

Radiant dust a chimney rise
Desert floor dissolved wide ablaze
Golden plum against the midnight sky
Burning eyes in death clouds ash grey face

I have harnessed the stars
Now unleashed upon the earth
I am become death
The destroyer of worlds

Encased in lead and steel
The end and infinity
The eight moon the sixth day the year death
The heatwave to grasp and consume your last breath

Brought high on are marked silver wing
Afar in cold thin morning air
Below as the day begins
The burning eyes in deaths face greedily stares

I have harnessed the stars
Now unleashed upon the earth
I am become death
The destroyer of worlds

    Song MeaningIt's about the 1945 atomic bombing of Hiroshima.

    "The eighth moon the sixth day the year death"

    Eighth moon = eighth month (August).

    August 6th, 1945.

    "Brought high on R marked silver wing"

    The airplane which dropped the bomb was called the "Enola Gay"; it was silver and had an "R" painted on its tail: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/…

    "Afar in cold thin morning air
    Below as the day begins"

    The bomb was dropped at 8:15 AM local time.
