"K.I.N.G." as written by Ernesto Mitchell, Paul 'neil' Mitchell, Paul 'father P' Mitchell and Mark 'hize' Collinder....
Bloodshot eyes - metal skin
Serpents tounge - dagger claws
Dragon wings - crooked horns
K.I.N.G

Beholding the might
In its dawn of grace
In its beauty and light
In its pride and glory

Rushing torrent - time and space
Elder lords - crack the soil
Gone or dead - you've never been
Kingdom come - hear the roar
Climbing down to rule the earth

Bloodshot eyes - metal skin
Serpents tounge - dagger claws
Dragon wings - crooked horns
K.I.N.G

Upon high places
With their heads up high
With their lives at stake
With their blades at hand
Triumph come - beyond the gate
Giants rise - from the pits
Worlds collide - chaos reign
Dawn of gold - age of gods
Climbing down to rule the earth

Bloodshot eyes - metal skin
Serpents tounge - dagger claws
Dragon wings - crooked horns
K.I.N.G

Lighting strikes - wake up now
Heed the forth - hate the weak
Summon all - make the signs
Legions march - earth the void
Climbing down to rule the earth

Bloodshot eyes - metal skin
Serpents tounge - dagger claws
Dragon wings - crooked horns
K.I.N.G

    Song MeaningAmerican men are mostly clueless when it comes to Northern European world-view and especially the Norse dislike for judeo-christian mythology and all its incarnations. "Armageddon" is middle eastern semitic twaddle that was forced upon the Norse through torture, fire, and enslavement (see History of Pagen Europe by Nigel Pennick). Some Nordics, have never forgotten their past. Satyricon blasts through the 1000 year reign of the judeo-christian death cult and all its related stupidity by offering a deeper interpretation of something covered up and blasphemed by the lies of monks. The meaning of K.I.N.G. perhaps stands for Kill Images, Not Gods. Regardless, the message of the song is so strong that it forgives the musical simplicity.

    Bloodshot eyes - metal skin
    Serpent's tongue - dagger claws
    Dragon wings - crooked horns
    K.I.N.G

    The idea in the chorus is best understood by separating the images of the lyrics from the rite's of divine Kingship. This doctrine, described in Julius Evola's immortal book "Revolt Against the Modern World", was well understood 1000 years ago throughout Europe before it was overcome by the monotheistic spiritual plague. The King once possessed both political and spiritual power before the spiritual and eventually political power was usurped by popes. The King used to appoint the pope not the opposite. Thus, christianity overthrew the natural order.

    Beholding the might
    In its dawn of grace
    In its beauty and light
    In its pride and glory

    Rushing torrent - time and space
    Elder lords - crack the soil
    Gone or dead - you've never been
    Kingdom come - hear the roar
    Climbing down to rule the earth

    American men might best understand this by considering how men used to have authority within their own home. Today, most are slaves to a wife's reckless consumption needs. She is the king of the home and the man is essentially reduced to a paycheck fetching sperm donor for her. The lyrics of the song are extreme as is the reality of the modern condition.

    In this song, Satryicon is heralding an overthrow of the overthrow. To the observant, the official video of this song on YouTube shows a woman coming down the stairs dressed in a modified Bunad (Traditional Norwegian female costume). Watch closely to how the video resolves for a hint at the power behind the message in the song. There is good news for the strong. However for the weak, the news is not so good. Consider the whole of the Black Metal scene and how it, along with metal in general, attracts men and predominately white males. True, white men can't jump, but perhaps that is due to being weighted down with brains. We all have our gifts in a world of forced equality.

    The video should suppress the Armageddon-o-nites bent on their beloved "beast" returning before their pathetic Lord; a lord of fevers and plagues who blessed Norway and many other countries with the Black Death. Christians brought the middle eastern values of "servant-hood" and "groveling before their master". This led monk geniuses to the idea of mortification before their lord. Their slave class reasoning led to the practice of avoiding bathing. This promoted living in filth because they thought that the more they suffer on earth, the greater their eternal reward. This brought rats, and plague. Thanks for that one Jesus! Alas, the Norse have weighed your influence upon the scales, and you Jesus have been found wanting! Let Satryicon explain in the following lyrics.


    Upon high places
    With their heads up high
    With their lives at stake
    With their blades at hand
    Triumph come - beyond the gate
    Giants rise - from the pits
    Worlds collide - chaos reign
    Dawn of gold - age of gods
    Climbing down to rule the earth

    The last part of the song, the lyric "heed the fourth - hate the weak" seems to suggest the fourth age. The Nordics understand this age as the "Wolf age" and the understanding of Ragnarök is also correct. This fourth age is also understood by different cultures and called by different names, but the meaning is the same. Kali-Yuga is another name for the 4th age. The Golden age follows the Wolf Age.
    --------------

    Final note:
    One person here seems to think Satanic bands are a bad thing. To those who believe this to be true please consider that others don't blindly follow everything we hear and until we hear Satan's side of the story, we can't take Jehovah very seriously. How does Satan get the title of accuser when Jehovah does all the accusing? The Norse have both a sense of humor and of fairness.

    General Commentreading over the lyrics, it kind of seems like it's either about Armegeadan or that they may be using it as symbolism for a downfall in something... great lyrics.

    K.I.N.G"

    Clearly describes a beast. To Me, thee Dark Lord.

    General CommentI think the song is about Ragnarök and not Armageddon. Armageddon is a part of Christian mythology, whereas Ragnarök is distinctly Nordic.

    Ragnarök is the battle between the gods and giants that will one day destroy the Earth.
