Twisting, falling, like eagles they drop from the sky
Without warning, the nuclear beast shows its eyes
Chaos ramped, the cult of the severed head rise
Among the ashes, could not foresee strength or size

Haunting screaming, gone in a flash of our eyes
Priestly being meant nothing more than their guise
Fallen angels, light up the sky with demise
Blackened hydra makes way as dark men conspire

Demons swarming, attacking the few who survive
Armageddon, the heavens and hell will collide
Cometh conqueror, black death is allotted its time
Primely power, to walk through the blood is divine

    General CommentTiamat is the planet that was destroyed by a roaming planetoid that passed through our solar system some millennia ago.
    The falling angels are most likely the fallout from this event being comets,meteorites raining down with the ultimate result being a nuclear winter and a wiping out of life on earth.
    The asteroid belt is part of the remains of planet Tiamat

    General CommentI think it is obviously about the nuclear holocaust. Everything about this song is great. I love how the acoustic guitar interupts the bludgeoning riffs. Great song.
