"Black Serenade" as written by Tomas Enrique Araya, Jeffery John Hanneman, Kerry King and Dave Lombardo....
Terrorize frozen eyes stare deep in me
Paralyzed inside death breeds on your pain
Pretty lace lie in hate you wear my scars
Terrified you find that you push me too far
Your repulsiveness reminds me of dead flesh
Rotting corpse the smell of your putrid fucking soul

Petrified that I decide the moment of your death
Belongs to me the taste is sweet it's so unreal

Your God weeps, it bleeds, it begs for me
God is letting you recover

Welcome to my Black Serenade
The entrance to my hell your pain
Scream your Song the Black Serenade
Live in fear a mind insane

Voice inside my head
Your face still shows itself to me
Telling me you're dead
Staring at your lifeless body
I saw you fucking die
My mind's tearing itself apart
Screaming from the inside
Release this pain from my fucking heart

Destroy the empty shell
Smash away the haunting fear
I hate your endless stare
Watching as I fuck your corpse

Welcome to my Black Serenade
The entrance to my hell your pain
Walk on through a tortured mind
You'll scream your song in time

Welcome to my Black Serenade
The entrance to my hell your pain
Flesh is burnt the Black Serenade

Live in fear no coming back

Welcome to my Black Serenade
The entrance to my hell your pain
Walk on through a tortured mind
You'll scream your song in time

Welcome to my Black Serenade
The entrance to my hell your pain
Flesh is burnt the Black Serenade
Live in fear death is back

    General Commentnecrophilia? I'm more with Toronto's idea, anyone whose ever fantasized about murder would easily get this song.

    General CommentThe reason it sounds different is because of bass tuning or micing. It seems to have little attack, I think it was tuned higher.

    It's not hard to tell that this is from the point of someone who is struggling with necrophilia.

    Screaming from the inside
    Release this pain from my fucking heart"

    They are trying to fight their urge.

    My InterpretationI don't think necrophillia is the only thing this song is about. Its a key concept for it. It might have to do with an ex-lover. Perhaps, she died and the man is in a strange sort of denial. Well, after reading it again, I get the idea of a rapist who won't quit even after the victim's death. But, he is doing it out of spite or hate as well as being messed up in the head. This song is more of a story, I believe.

    My InterpretationI think it's about someone (the narrator) who has put up with another person they can't stand for a long time, possibly they feared the person or felt caged by them, and eventually they were pushed over the edge. To begin with, the narrator already has a demented mind, but has been able to hold it in untill this moment. After they kill said person in a blind fury, they rape the corpse seeking even greater satisfaction of hurting their target's helpless body, in addition to possibly satisfying feelings of necrophilia.

    Definately my favorite song off of Chrit Illusion. Slayer's Serial killer/rapist songs always sound so chillingly truthful.
