As I walk through the blackened forest
Thoughts of hate and anger fill my soul
The charred remains of the holy rollers
Scream repentance though it's far too late

I fight back the laughter at what I see
The suffering healers false destined prophecy

He didn't think yesterday of the end of his life
The brainwashed fools born again of a thousand lies

Hate filled screams break the silence
Terrifying dreams filling up your head
Blasphemy thrusting out, in the masses it reigns
The mask of hypocrisy is slowly unveiled

Fear the angels holocaust, they're screaming
Dreams of pain forever entering your head
Death and hatred loathing, on mankind it feeds
Earth is dead and gone now, we've brought it to an end

For the last time I've been betrayed
Never again will I subject myself to this hypocrisy
Something is drawing me to the other side
Only time will tell my true destiny

    General Comment"The charred remains of the holy rollers

    This seems to be talking about the Southern Baptist types that are always all like "Repent and find Jeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee-sussss!!" and how all their work was for naught as in the end they all died the same gruesome death.

    I dunno, the whole thing seems to have an anti-Christian theme to it.

    General CommentThis is about how the stormrider gets mad at religion and dismisses it. The name angels holocaust may involve some form of combat against the angels or something, i dont know. good song.

    General CommentHow did Iced Earth make the intro to Angels Holocaust?
    It sounds like Carmina Burana by Carl Orff was sampled and mixed into the song.

    General CommentThis song shows that the individual is now in hell, he denied the life of christ. "scream repentence tho its far too late" shows how he repents now he is in hell but the will is fixed - its too late!It shows how he was tricked into falsehood by Satan.Read on little ideas what its like in hell in 'an exorcist tells his story' - has many similarities to these images in this song.Cheers!

    That pretty much explains the content of the whole album.

    This part, I believe, takes place after a battle. The Stormrider is one of the (if not the only) survivors. He was sent by his faith, and, after watching his friends die, is mad as hell about it. He wanders off into the "blackened forest", which has been ravaged by the fire of battle.
