Something's calling in the night
Electric madness roars in sight

Heat is rising blazing fast
Hot and evil feel the blast

Out of control about to explode
It's coming at ya

Here comes the metal meltdown
Run for your lives
Can't stop the metal meltdown
No-one survives

Raging fury
Wired for sound
Nitro bombshell
Shakes the ground

High and mighty
Rips the air
Piercing lazer
Burning glaze

Out of control
About to explode
It's coming at ya

Here comes the metal meltdown
Run for your lives
Can't stop the metal meltdown
No-one survives

Temperature is boiling
Magnifying might
Feeding like a virus
Flashing light

Imminent collision
Shockwaves all around
Generating energy
Screams so loud

It's comin' meltdown
Start runnin' countdown

    General CommentThis song is so awesome. My number one favorite song of their's. It has to be a big hit. It has all the best and fast riffs and it is just an explosive song.

    They sound something Iron Maiden.

    General CommentTHREE COMMENTS!? Omigosh, this song HAS to have THE best guitar ever. I love the intro! Too bad they cut it out in some of the live versions. :P I love it soooo much! No one really cares what it's about; it's just AWESOME !

    General CommentWHAT THE HELL! THE INTRO TO THIS IS MADLY INSANE AND THERE'S ONLY FOUR COMMENTS?! Rob Halford is graced with a voice that every metal singer dreams of. And the pure insanity that is called guitar solos throughout the songs make my fingers hurt just thinking about it. JUDAS PRIEST ALL THE WAY!

    (My life long ambition is to play the intro on the guitar some day....)
