Burzum – War Lyrics 17 years ago
Supposedly, the riffs for this song were more or less copied from Root's "Piseo pro Satana," or so I've heard.

Disturbed – Believe Lyrics 17 years ago
Its talking about the way people, believing their penance absolves them of guilt, fail to recognize their past wrongs (and their complicity in them). And then they continue their wrongs, always assured of their continuing forgiveness. Belief keeps them from recognizing their fault, because they continue to find absolution.

I don't think its specifically anti-christian (or anti-any religion). Its more of an opposition to the hypocritical, self-delusional aspects of religions and portions of their adherents.

And on the pentacle, most of you have no clue what you're talking about. Its currently used for Wicca/Neopagnism and Satanism (neither of which is evil, neither of which have much in common). The symbol has also been used (in the past) by Judaism, Christianity, and various occult and ritual magic purposes. All of which have their own definitions for the symbol's meaning.

Slayer – Criminally Insane Lyrics 17 years ago
Heineken, great way to further lend weight to my point.

Darkthrone – As Flittermice As Satan's Spy Lyrics 17 years ago
It also ends with "In the name of God, let the churches burn" spoken backwards, by Varg I think.

Vader – Xeper Lyrics 17 years ago
Xeper is from the Temple of Set's philosophies.

Mayhem – Freezing Moon Lyrics 17 years ago
Vocals, I meant vocals.

The Axis Of Perdition – A Ruined Nation Awakens Lyrics 18 years ago
This seems to be describing a myriad of Lovecraftian entities and the destruction of the universe. Nyarlathotep and the Shaggai (plural for Shoggoth?) are from H. P. Lovecraft's horror stories. The piping daemonium flutes and blind idiot god are probably references to Azathoth, also one of Lovecraft's creations.

Slayer – Disciple Lyrics 18 years ago
It is an odd concidence, but thats all it really is.

submissions
Slayer – Disciple Lyrics 18 years ago
I do also enjoy thrash metal though (along with doom and death); South of Heaven and Seasons in the Abyss were also excellent albums.

submissions
Mayhem – Freezing Moon Lyrics 18 years ago
Dead produced Mayhem's best vocals and lyrical concepts so far; unfortunately he wasn't as competent at the actual songwriting. The lyrics are mostly good, but they could have been so much better had they been put into words by a better writer.

submissions
Emperor – Inno A Satana Lyrics 18 years ago
Inno a Satan translates (roughly) as "flow through Satan".

Nargaroth – Amarok - Zorn Des Lammes Lyrics 18 years ago
Amarok is an Inuit word for "wolf".

Nargaroth – Amarok - Zorn des Lammes Part III Lyrics 18 years ago
Kanwulf has said that he wrote this song as a memorial to the member of his family who were killed in the two World Wars.

Saying that he is the wolf and the lamb seems to me to be a metaphor for saying how he is a both a killer (because he is a soldier, and so he must kill), yet he is also a victim, both because of whoever eventually killed him, and because of the greater evil (the war) that he is a victim to.

Kanwulf has, in interviews, lamented the fact that virtually all German soldiers in WWII have been demonized, based largely on the actions of a relative few (namely the SS and Gestapo). Most of the German soldiers in WWII were just normal people (many of them were forced into service). Hell, I should know; some of my relatives served in the German army and navy during WWII; none of them were evil by any means.

Things like that would seem to be where stuff like "Call me now Judas or call me insane, I am what I am, I'm just a man" comes in; most of them were just human beings, not sociopaths or evil people.

Nargaroth – Erik, May you rape the angels Lyrics 18 years ago
The song was written by Kanwulf as a memorial to Erik (aka Grim), former drummer of Gorgoroth, Immortal, and Borknagar. Erik committed suicide of a drug overdose.

The quote at the end is an audioclip from an Immortal concert.

That is true, but the majority of people lump the two together.

Darkthrone – As Flittermice As Satan's Spy Lyrics 18 years ago
Flittermice are bats, for those of you who don't know.

Burzum – My Journey To The Stars Lyrics 18 years ago
This is probably my favorite of Vikernes' songs.

submissions
Burzum – Feeble Screams from Forests Unknown Lyrics 18 years ago
First Burzum song I heard. My guess is that "the Gate" is the gate to the next life or level of existence.

submissions
Mayhem – Buried By Time And Dust Lyrics 18 years ago
Some pretty good lyrics about death; it sounds as if the narrator is some sort of vampire.

submissions
Mayhem – De Mysteriis Dom Sathanas Lyrics 18 years ago
I read an interview with Dead and Euronymous in which they said that De Mysteriis Dom Sathanas was the name of an occult book, supposedly with only one copy in existence.

They said that the title means (in Latin) "the Mysterious Rites of Lord Satan", though this translation seems to be incorrect. The word "Dom" does not exist in Latin, though it may be an abbreviation of "Dominus". In which case it would translate (roughly) as "The Mysteries of Lord Satan".

submissions
Emperor – Into The Infinity Of Thoughts Lyrics 18 years ago
I think Tchort also burned something; I know he was arrested for some crime. That and you have Faust's "indescretion" in turning down a guy's advances.

submissions
Mayhem – Freezing Moon Lyrics 18 years ago
Thats quite possible, though Mayhem hasn't often been one for deep, meaningful lyrics.

Maniac's lyrics on the Deathcrush EP are OK, his newer lyrics aren't that great. Attilas lyrics, however, are just horrible. The bastard completely ruined the album. Dead is, in my opinion, one of the best BM vocalists.

Slayer – Hell Awaits Lyrics 18 years ago
First Slayer song I ever heard.

submissions
Mayhem – Carnage Lyrics 18 years ago
These lyrics look pretty weak on paper, yet they manage to come across very effectively in the Live in Leipzig album. The same is true of Pure Fucking Armageddon.

submissions
Mayhem – Freezing Moon Lyrics 18 years ago
Dead does the vocals on Live in Leipzig, not Maniac.

submissions
Slayer – Dead Skin Mask Lyrics 18 years ago
Ed Gein also practiced necrophilia, as well as made vests from the skin of women he dug up/killed. He also made a full body suit from one of them; he used it while digging up other corpses.

Ed Gein was, in part, the inspiration for Psycho, Texas Chainsaw Massacre, and Silence of the Lambs.

The solo in this song is awesome.

submissions
Opeth – Bleak Lyrics 18 years ago

submissions
Slayer – Disciple Lyrics 18 years ago
Hell no. I'm a fan of Nargaroth, Graveland, Burzum, Darkthrone, earlier Slayer, and other metal bands.

And I said that these lyrics were not particularly creative, not Slayer.

Graveland – Into The War (outro) Lyrics 18 years ago
The actual song has nop lyrics.

On my copy of Carpathian Wolves, it is combined with Unpunished Herd as one track.

submissions
Graveland – In The Glare Of Burning Churches Lyrics 18 years ago
This of course also refers to the wave of black metal related church burnings in the early 90s; I'm not sure if Darken had any part in those.

submissions
Graveland – Impaler Of Wallachia Lyrics 18 years ago
I think the "blood is life" thing was said by Countess Bathory, not Vlad.

Burzum – Ea, Lord Of The Deeps Lyrics 18 years ago
This sounds like a description of one of those sea monsters you sometimes see on medieval and renaiisance maps of the world. Ea is from Lord of the Rings.

Burzum – A Lost Forgotten Sad Spirit Lyrics 18 years ago
The sun has been extinguished, the oceans are gone, and all is dead. All that remains is corpse of a boy on an altar (a sacrifice?). The soul of the boy is currently, in its dreams, free from the hell of existence. Once it is awoken, it will haunt forver as a ghost.
