"Black Metal" as written by and Conrad Thomas Lant Anthony Bray....
Black is the night, metal we fight
Power amps set to explode.
Energy screams, magic and dreams
Satan records the first note.
We chime the bell, chaos and hell
Metal for maniacs pure.
Faster than steel, fortune on wheels
Brain haemorrhage is the cure.

Lay down your souls to the gods rock 'n roll

Freaking so wild, nobodys mild
Giving it all that you got.
Wild is so right, metal tonight
Faster than over the top.
Open the door, enter hell's core
Black is the code for tonight.
Atomic force, feel no remorse
Crank up the amps now its night


lay down your souls to the gods rock 'n roll
Metal ten fold through the deadly black hole
Riding hell's stallions bareback and free
Taking our chances with raw energy

Come ride the night with us
Rock hard and fight
United my legions we stand
Freak hard and wild for us
Give up your soul
Live for the quest satan's band

Against the odds, black metal gods
Fight to achieve our goal
Casting a spell, leather and hell
Black metal gods rock 'n roll
Building up steam, nuclear screams
War-heads are ready to fight
Black leather hounds, faster than sound
Metal our purpose in life

fuck everything


lay down your souls to the gods rock 'n roll

    General CommentThis song is a way for CoF to pay tribute to the origional Gods of Black Metal, Venom. I think they did a superb job.

    General CommentI most admit, that this song is my favorit CoF song even though it´s a cover, but IMO it´s way better than the original on by venom (witch sucked).

    The reason this is so good I think is cause of dani filth´s damn good screams, actually I think he has one of the best voices in bm (even though CoF arent bm anymore), and I say this even though i´m not much of a CoF fan, but I really like this cover witch is one of the best covers ever - even though covers almost always suck!!

    General Commentevery body stop bloody ripping into venom. They charted an undiscovered area in heavy metal. They broke away from their metal roots and created a whole new image for heavy music as well as created a whole new genre. If it wasnt for those guys we wouldnt have COF or any other black/death metal bands.

    General CommentWhoever said that Venom are 'hard rock' is FUCKING IGNORANT.

    Venom started this thing we call Black Metal, kiddies, and don't you ever forget that.
