"Storming the Burning Fields" as written by and Herman/theart Li....
Bursting through the fires of empty
Fatal warrior, battles are raging
Power of darkness rise for the fight
We're strong and stand our ground

Death is all around us and my heart is beating weaker
Fight the demon, power of immortal souls arise

Fire in our hearts the evil rages on for evermore
Burning in the cold the battle rages now

Through damnation rise, sign of the times
Master of bleeding eyes
Thunder and high, look to the sky
They're never gonna take us down!

[Chorus:]
And we will cross the evil standing
On the temple in the fire
Storming there beyond the lost horizons, oh
Heroes of the night are calling
See the promised land is falling
Reaching for the powers deep inside
On through the night

Blinded by the hate and desire
Burning in your heart like a fire
Challenging you - suffer and fear
Horizons seek control
Blood spills all around us
And our enemies grow nearer
Sacrifice your life to have
The journey you will ride
Take us to the plains of death and carry on for evermore
Riding on the wings of memories long gone!

And you'll die for your crimes, sign of the times
Master of endless lies
Fight to the end, now we ascend
Together we will take them down!

[Chorus:Repeat 2X]

    General CommentKind of obvious, this song is about an army storming across the battlefield and destroying the other army.

    General CommentAnother awesome song. I heard "temple" as "devil". In fact, I remember when the album was leaked ,there were different lyrics for the songs on Inhuman Rampage. In the place of "temple" it was "...?" or something. Now that the real lyrics are out, now we know what they say!

    General CommentThis song's imagery reminds me of something from the Bible. It's the Messianic war from Jewish, Christian, and Muslim scripture in which it is prophesied that the Messiah will lead Israel in the battle with the rest of the world. If that is the case, then the "Master of Endless Lies" is likely to be the Messiah's opponent - maybe the "false prophet" mentioned in the book of Revelations - and the "temple" being mentioned in the song would then likely be the Temple of Solomon.

    The lyrics,
    "Bursting through the fires avenging
    Fatal warning battles are raging
    Power of darkness rise for the fight
    We'll be strong and stand our ground"
    seem to be drawing a picture for the audience which shows the two sides as they get ready for war.

    The song seems to give insight into the Messiah's thoughts himself, as he begins to doubt his people's ability to continue to fight off their enemies as they approach nearer.

    "Death is all around us and my heart is beating weaker...
    Blood spills all around us and our enemies draw nearer
    Sacrifice your life to have them carry you away
    Take us to the place of death and carry on forever more
    Burning on the dreams of memories long gone!"

    But, the Messiah appears to regain his resolve and tells his enemy ("Master of endless lies")
    "And you'll die for your crimes, sign of the times
    Master of endless lies"
    Right after this, the speaker then urges his followers to continue fighting. He tells soldiers
    "Fight to the end, now we ascend
    Together we will take them down!
    And we will crush the evil standing
    On the temple in the fire storming
    Fly beyond the lost horizons high!
    Heroes of the night are calling
    See the promised land is falling
    Reaching for the powers deep inside
    On through the night."

    However, there is no actual mention of Israel in this song's lyrics, so my take on it might be wrong. But, much of this song does remind me of how I imagine the final war to look like. The nations having gathered under the leadership of the "Master of lies" to destroy Israel. Yet, the Messiah heroically leads his people as they defend themselves from the onslaught of invaders, and the rest of the world is eventually defeated and made to answer for their wrongdoings.
