Music of War

Chapter 1, “Messina Ridge” by God Dethroned (2017)

The Battle of Messines (7-14 June 1917) was an offensive conducted by the British Second Army on the Western Front near the village of Messines in West Flanders, Belgium, during the First World War.

he tactical objective of the attack at Messines was to capture the German defences on the ridge to deprive the German 4th Army of the high ground.

The battle began with the detonation of 19 mines beneath the German front position, which devastated the German front line defences and left 19 large craters. This was followed by a creeping barrage 640 m deep, protecting the British troops as they secured the ridge with support from tanks, cavalry patrols and aircraft

Break through the stalemate, capture defenses on the ridge
Devastate front line defences, assemble the troops in No man’s land

Fire a creeping barrage, to support the infantry advance
Outflank strong points and machine gun nests
Repulse another attack

Detonate the mines beneath their front lines
Pillars of fire
Vanished an entire army

Messina ridge

The creeping bombardment threw up smoke and dust
Blocking the view of the defenders
The forward zone was overrun, anticipate a counter attack

Detonate the mines beneath their front lines
Pillars of fire
Vanished an entire army

Chapter 2, “War Rages On” by Memoriam (2017)

Declaration of War: Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain’s broadcast to the nation (3 September 1939, 11am): “I have to tell you now that no such undertaking has been received, and that consequently this country is at war with Germany

And so it came to pass as time rolls by
Once more into battle, no questions why

The final stand, life comes to an end
The last bastion, as war rages on

You never thought that it would end in defeat
Arising from the wreckage, the victory complete

And now you stand, last remnants of man
This cannot be undone, the war now rages on

So now we rise again prepared to die
Another nameless victim, the enemy denied

Chapter 3, “You Must Kill” by Cavalera Conspiracy (2008)

After a series of defeats from Dunkirk to Singapore, Churchill could finally tell the House of Commons that “We have a new experience. We have victory – a remarkable and definite victory

You must kill, another body killed
We must kill, another blood is spilled
You must kill, another soul is ill
We must kill, another life killed

We must kill, another deadly sin
You must kill, another orphan land
We must kill, another atrocity
You must kill, another misery

You must kill, and blood will follow
We must kill, there’s no tomorrow
You must kill, death will follow
We must kill, there’s no tomorrow

Judgment, torment, execution

You must kill, this is not a drill
We must kill, this is for real
You must kill, another body ill
You must kill, another blood is spilled

Judgment, torment, execution

Chapter 4, “They Came to Die” by Unleashed (2015)

World War II was the deadliest military conflict in history in absolute terms of total casualties. Over 60 million people were killed, which was about 3% of the 1940 world population. Military deaths from all causes deaths totaled from 21 to 25 million, including deaths in captivity of about 5 million prisoners of war

In this cold aftermath where the blood has dried at last
Soldiers lay scattered around in the fields of death, a fading sound

They came to die

A shameful march without a sound with weapons pointed at the ground
They came out of the mist so it all came down to this
Now approaching our lines Heavens cry, their souls have died
Christ is dead or so it seems death before loyalty

They came to die

In nomine Patris et Filii et Spiritus Sancti, Death before loyalty

They came to die

In nomine Patris et Filii et Spiritus

They came to die

Chapter 5, “Burial Lines” by Unearth (2014)

This cornerstone, a testament of worth
With razored claws that freeze the hands of delusion
Force feed a dream in a state of pure unrest
This cornerstone lines the stars never resting

No one can take it away, a life unresting
No one can take it away, I’ll defend my Kingdom

Force feed this dream until I drown
No one can take it away, Now die my will unconquered

Through the bloodshed burials lines
A darkness waits for the night to come
Blood spilled while the watchers fall
Now face to face to defend my kingdom

With razored claws that freeze the hands of delusion
Not again I won’t let this slip through my fingers
I’ll keep running through
I’ve found my home lives at the Rivers Edge
I’ll keep rushing through

Face to face I defend my Kingdom

Chapter 6, “Shadow of the Swastika” by TYR (2011)

Given their strategic locations regarding Britain and Russia, the Nordic countries in World War II were the targets of German conquest or control, along with the nearby islands, while the British tried to stop them. Finland fought two wars against the Soviet Union and one against Germany, while Denmark and Norway were invaded and occupied by Germany. Iceland and the other islands were under British or American occupation, as was Greenland. Only Sweden managed to remain neutral, cooperating with both belligerent factions.

You who think the hue of your hide means you are to blame
And your father’s misdeeds are his son’s to carry in shame
Not mine I’ll take no part
You can shove the sins of the your father where no light may pass
And kiss my Scandinavian ass

Pages of the past, how long will they last?
A lie lost in the legacy of fools left us this parody unsurpassed

Pages of the past, how long will they last?
The shadow of the Swastika by fools’ fears now for far too long has been cast

You who think the hue of your hide means you get to blame
The black for your own faults and so bring humanity shame
Make sure you count me out of the ranks of your inbred morons
With your sewer gas and kiss my Scandinavian ass

Pages of the past, how long will they last?
A lie lost in the legacy of fools left us this parody unsurpassed

Pages of the past, how long will they last?
The shadow of the Swastika by fools’ fears now for far too long has been cast

Chapter 7, “Raise your Horns” by Amon Amarth (2016)

In Norse mythology, Valhalla is a majestic, enormous hall located in Asgard, ruled over by the god Odin. Chosen by Odin, half of those who die in combat travel to Valhalla upon death, led b7y valkyries, while the other half go to the goddess Freyja’s field Fólkvangr. In Valhalla, the dead join the masses of those who have died in combat and various legendary Germanic heroes and kings, as they prepare to aid Odin during the events of Ragnarök.

Victory we fought hard and prevailed
Brutally we were fighting
Stormy seas rolling thunder, piercing hail
Battlefield lit by lightning
Eagerly we filled the waves with enemies
Hungrily ravens cawing
Home shore calls, we return on bloody seas
Twilight falls, darkness crawling

So pour the beer for thirsty men
A drink that they have earned
And pour a beer for those who fell
For those who did not return

Raise your horns raise them up to the sky
We will drink to glory tonight
Raise your horns for brave fallen friends
We will meet where the beer never ends

No regrets we went out to war and strife
To protect king and country
Victory honor those who gave their life
Willingly we will not grieve

So pour the beer for thirsty men
A drink that they have earned
And pour a beer for those who fell
For those who did not return

Raise your horns raise them up to the sky
We will drink to glory tonight
Raise your horns for brave fallen friends
We will drink tonight

Raise your horns raise them up to the sky
We will drink to glory tonight
Raise your horns raise them up to the sky
We will drink tonight

Raise your horns raise them up to the sky
We will drink to glory tonight
Raise your horns for brave fallen friends
We will meet in Valhalla again

Chapter 8, “War Order” by Asyllex (2017)

The kings of the World, and the sons of man.
Have declared a war, which is close at hand.
The people of earth have to take a stand

Listen to the voice, of the higher hand.
So many people, slain on command.
A war against the world, just to keep the brand
Lives at stake, due to high demand.

This is war, war order. This is war, war order.

The lies, the hate, the violence
They cry, they fear the Jeviathan.
As a mastermind of crowd control

Let the bodies burn, and let none return

Listen to the voice, of the higher hand.
So many people, slain on command.
A war against the world, just to keep the brand
Lives at stake, due to high demand.

This is war, war order. This is war, war.

An army as one, stands against them all.
The slayer of man, up against the wall.
Millions to save, he has to be brave.
Nothing to spare, but will he dare?

Let the bodies burn, and let none return.
