"Hordes of Chaos (A Necrologue for the Elite)" as written by Miland Petrozza and Jeff Collier....
Violent chaos haunting me
Mirror of countless human tragedies
Times of horror, constant lies
Totalitarians autocracy's demise
Fake peace a necrologue for the elite
Brutality among the weak
While children die for Armageddon victory's breed
This necrologue for the elite
Like raging beasts among the sheep
While flags are waving everywhere
They scream

Hordes of chaos
Hordes of chaos
Everyone against everyone - chaos
Hordes of chaos
Hordes of chaos
Everyone against everyone - chaos

Brutal riots left and right
Out to destroy, willing to die
Honour killing in blood is she'd
A cruel reality in empires built in sand
Dark war, more gruesome then ever before
Supports this decadence galore
A tyrants feast on shoulders
Of the poorest of the poor
The necrologue for the elite
The rise of the heartless bourgoise
While flags are waving
Everywhere they scream

Hordes of chaos
Hordes of chaos
Everyone against everyone - chaos
Hordes of chaos
Hordes of chaos
Everyone against everyone - chaos

    General CommentI love the intro to this song, and the rest is pretty cool, too, but it is quite different from the old Kreator we all knew and loved.

    As for the meanings, it's basically about the world being in a state of complete and utter chaos. Everyone rioting and killing one another, kind of like an apocalypse brought about by humans.

    General CommentI COULD BE WRONG, THIS LINE:

    A tyrants feast on shoulders
    Of the poorest of the poor

    COULD REFER TO THE BANKING ELITE WHO BASICALY CONTROL THE WORLD THROUGH CENTRAL BANKS, INTEREST AND DEBT (MONEY). SOURCE - ZEITGEISTMOVIE.COM

    THE SONG MENTIONS "ELITE" WHICH USUALY MEANS ELITE BANKERS WHO ARE BASICALLY IN A POSITION OF DIFFERENTIAL ADVANTAGE.

    My OpinionI think this song is about the two classes in the world of today the poor and powerless (citizens) and the rich and powerful (politicians and bankers).

    The first verse could refer to the mistandings amongst the citizens
    "Brutality among the weak"

    while politicians are lying to the public and just caring about themselves

    "Times of horror, constant lies"

    "While flags are waving everywhere" could mean the politicians are rallying for their party

    The second verse could refer to the leaders making a war that destroys mankind while they are blind and ignore the poor.

    "Dark war, more gruesome then ever before"

    "Honour killing in blood is she'd" Refers to war

    "A tyrants feast on shoulders
    Of the poorest of the poor" While the powerful are feasting the poor remain hungry

    My InterpretationI interpret this song as Kreator's response to the tiresome argument that anarchism is chaos and violence. 'Hordes of chaos' refers to national armies and all of the blood shed ('the countless human tragedies') for the maintenance of the wealth of the few, the bourgeoisie, at the expense of the 'poorest of the poor'.
