Let my soul be a silent storm / Conceived in the fire of war
I am the ruthless bane of a wicked world and I pray on the killing floor

When I carve my name across this place it is to defile its vain and vile ways With every breath like a threat for tomorrow’s embrace

And the battle is my way / I will go this path alone / I will take unto my prey, this I know

All others will fall

Let my will be a violent path to tear apart what’s left
All Hell falls down around my feet when I speak with a word of wrath

And the battle is my way / I will go this path alone / I will take unto my prey, this I know All my life will sing the pain / My suffering will show / In the fight I find my name, this I know

The blade of my call / One name above all / All others will fall

    General CommentVery powerful song, one of my personal favourites from Demon Hunter as a whole and a favourite off of True Defiance (in fact I listen to this when I go to the gym).

    The first thing that comes to mind is that this song strongly reflects John Eldredge's "Wild at Heart", especially as the song goes between the heart of God and the true heart of man: a warrior's heart that fights. Although the book encompasses just more than the concept of the warrior's heart and that God is a warrior (and will fight for what is just, right and Holy) but this song perfectly embodies it.

    Especially the "In the fight I find my name" where God gives us our true name when we strip ourselves away from our false identities and he gives us our true identities. A beautiful concept in and of itself.

    Can also be another "war-cry" songs which fits perfectly as well... Just too many things that could be said about this song!


    Overall, a well-written, well-play, and just a beautiful song. Awesome album!
