Musical Interlude: “Revelation (Death’s Angel)”, by Manowar

17 Oct

It’s been far too long since I did a musical interlude, doncha think? (Not counting this recent repost.)

Thanks to infowarrior1 for introducing me to this epic ’80s metal track.


 
Above the wreckage of your mortal world I stand
Judgement passed delivered by his hand
Now clear the smoke, there the ashes stand
A fitting tribute to mortality and man.
What was written foretold in dreams,
In visions apocalypse now seen.
And all self-righteous fools who lived and blasphemed
Drink the wine of his anger
Die with the beast
 
Vindication, he is coming on the clouds
See his angels, hear their trumpets sound.
The day of anger when the stars fall from the sky
The moon turns red, the sun turns black as night.
 
Know the end is coming, heed this sign
By the morning star the four horsemen ride.
 
Revelation, the chosen saved
Earth be cleansed in a blaze
Armageddon, the first trumpet blows
Hail, fire and blood fall on Satan’s throne.
 
His hair as white as wool, his eyes like burning flame
He is the first and last, he brings the seven plagues
Seven stars of seven cities in his hand
He holds the keys of death for the underworld and man
 
Know the end is coming, heed this sign
By the morning star the four horsemen ride
 
Revelation, the chosen saved
Earth be cleansed in a blaze
Armageddon, the first trumpet blows
Hail, fire and blood fall on Satan’s throne.
 
Revelation, the chosen saved
Earth be cleansed in a blaze
Armageddon, the first trumpet blows
Hail, fire and blood fall on Satan’s throne.
