Harlots of Hell spread your wings
As I penetrate your soul
Feel the fire shoot through your body
As I slip into your throne
Cast aside, do as you will
I care not how you plead
Satan's child now stalks the earth
Born from my demon seed

Hot winds of Hell
Burns, in my wake
Death is what you pray,
Behold, captor of sin

Infernal slaves of manipulation
Captive of my vice
Abandon God, the helpless one
To relieve you of your plight
Subversive action will not help
It will strengthen me
I see decline in your every move
Death your final plea

Hot winds of Hell
Burns, in my wake
Death is what you pray,
Behold, captor of sin

Your skin turns to leather
I ignite your timid blood
You feel my lethal touch
As I grasp your weary soul
I'll take you down into the fire

    General CommentYeah, I agree it's about rape, described from the perpetrator's point of view:

    Harlots Of Hell Spread Your Wings
    As I Penetrate Your Soul
    Feel The Fire Shoot Through Your Body
    As I Slip Into Your Throne

    Scarecely veiled metaphors for intercourse.

    Lines such as "I care not how you plead" confirm that it is about rape.

    General Commentgood, solid song. I prefer At The Gate's version, because it has more energy and passion. With Slaughter of the soul now re-realeased with this cover on the disc, we are all happy.

    General Commentgo listen to your live undead albums..."this song is for all of those[] who spread their legs in the middle of the nights!"--tom's intro to captor of sin...I think this song is maybe more about whores than rape...as blatant as the lyrics may be indicating forced sex, I think it really speaks more about being a slut and maybe a captive of your own nature...the captor of sin could be a womans uterus...and the sin would thus be his "demon seed"...just a thought...and I know there is always this controversy between women secretly wanting to be taken, and women saying that is not the case--and I agree, being a woman, rape does not sound fun to me, but emulating with my husband in a safe environment is quite a stimulating experience. I've had relations while this song was playing and I felt as though slayer were singing an anthem about women who crave sex more than men.

    General CommentI think it can both ways actually. Depends on how you look at it. I've tried and tried, but I just couldn't see how it's about whores, aside from the "harlots of hell" line which could just be an insult by the rapist. It's all how you look at it. Fucking sick as Hell song though.
