Misfit1969 Seems to me this is a bit of a "concept album" and I'm not sayin that is a bad thing. Probably my favorite of the group I bought. Moves from ethereal to heavy and back. Someone likened this to spaghetti western doom, hell yeah! Favorite track: Deal with the Devil.

Sonny92 This is a psychedelic concept album based on Nick Cave's script for Gladiator 2 in which Maximus is sent back to earth by the Roman gods to kill Christ who is causing their deaths as his worshippers increase and their's decline. The songs are killer psychedelic stoner epics, culminating in a ten minute instrumental called Christ Killer that begins like a spaghetti western soundtrack, evoking images of a Sergio Leone stand-off that then just keeps building to the cathartic climax of the record. Favorite track: The Christkiller.

Donny McBride Bought this on a whim and I'm very glad I did. If you haven't bought it, do it now. If you have, buy it again. Favorite track: Execution.

Track Name: Execution
Devil please dont take me down
all the way on down to hell
devil please dont take me down
down to my grave

Mama's been crying for days
her sons on that killing line
mamas been crying for days
she hears the devil coming down the line

Mr. Devil, Mr. Devil, dont you take me down
down to the gallows
mr. devil, mr. devil dont you take me down
down to the gallows

Down to my grave

I can feel the heat underneath my skin
of that electric chair
I can feel the boiling blaze
of the hell thats coming near
I killed my only love
I shot her down three times
I killed my only love
now they sentenced me to die

Mr. Devil, Mr. Devil, dont you take me down
down to the gallows
mr. devil, mr. devil dont you take me down
down to the gallows

Down to my grave
Track Name: Deal with the Devil
THE DARKNESS SWEPT OVER ME
TAINTED OF TORTURED SOULS
HELL FIRE AS FAR AS I COULD SEE
AS I FELL INTO HIS WORLD

IN THE BELLY OF THE BEAST
SPOKE A TRULY WICKED VOICE
SOFTLY HIS WORDS CAME TO ME
OUT FROM THE OPEN VOID

I SEE THAT YOURE A WICKED MAN
EXECUTED FOR YOUR SINS
AND IF HE HAD HIS WAY WITH YOU
I'D OPEN HELL AND LET YOU IN

BUT THERE IS SOMETHING YOU CAN DO
THERES A MAN UPSTAIRS WHO'S GOTTA GO
HES RUINED HIS WORLD AS ITS PLAIN TO SEE
YOU MUST CUT HIS THROAT AND BRING HIS HEAD TO ME

I'M THE DEVIL MAN, YOU'LL BE CHRIST KILLER
AND SOON ENOUGH ILL REUNITE YOU WITH HER
BUT NOWS THE TIME TO WAGE THIS WAR
AND SPILL HOLY BLOOD FOR YOUR DARK LORD

I THOUGHT OF MY ONLY LOVE
AND HOW I BROUGHT HER TO THE GROUND
IN ORDER TO SAVE HER SOUL
THIS WORLD MUST COME DOWN
Track Name: Lucifer's Revenge
CIRCLES OF SATANS PYRE
CAST OUT FROM ETERNAL FIRES
BREAKING THROUGH THE ATMOSPHERE
MY GOAL IS COMING NEAR

RISING UP
TO THE SKIES
AT THE GATES
IN DISGUISE

BREAKING INTO PROMISED LAND
WITH AN EVIL BLADE IN HAND
MOUNTAINS OF A CRYSTAL FACE
I SHALL TAINT THIS HOLY PLACE

HIS PRESCENCE NEARS
HIS TIME HAS COME
THE DEVIL CHEERS
THY WILL IS DONE

---

OH LORD I SHALL TAKE YOUR SOUL
UNDER THE NAME OF LUCIFER
OH LORD I WILL TAKE YOUR SOUL
WITH THIS BANE THAT HE HAS PROCURED
