Kreator - Enemy of God

Purchase Kreator – Enemy of God

“Enemy of God” is the title track of of German thrash metal veterans Kreator’s eleventh studio album. Enemy of God saw the band extend the sound started with Violent Revolution. It is hard to believe that the song is now ten years old as it sounds like it just came out yesterday. The sheer aggression from this track is nearly second to none from Kreator and they have released countless good songs throughout their long career. The track also sees one of Mille Petrozza’s best performances on both guitar and vocals.

Kreator – Enemy of God

Kreator – Enemy of God Lyrics

Shocked Orwellian races
Gather united in grief
Nothing is left from the world they have known
Grotesque indifferent beliefs

Systems have failed, rules can’t control
Corrupt dictators forever dethroned
Lies of the priest, trust of the blind
Failure of structures manipulate deviant crimes

All nations hail the end of peace
New dawn inception of disease
Age of revenge has now been born
By the mother of all wars

Enemy of God
Purity and innocence is killed
Enemy of God
Peace has died the day when life stood still

Clash of demonic religions
Hatred, the human divine
Despotic aggressors, in triumph they reign
Fanatics bring mayhem to life

War of all wars, foreseen before
Freedom’s foundation exists no more
Genocide nightmare, the darkest of days
Chaos devourers all as hope and pride fades

Total carnage sudden death
Sent from a morbid mind possessed
A godless Mekka now awaits
As hellish flames desecrates

Enemy of God
Purity and innocence is killed

Enemy of God
Peace has died the day when life stood still

Now the fury is unleashed
The hunter became prey for the beast
Breathing savage disdain, malevolence ingrained
No emotion for humanity

Tragically the palace falls
Burned are the imperators halls
For their decadent facades, all their elitaire art
Exhibition of filth to watch for all

For those who died along the way
Timeless glory awaits

For those who died along the way
Timeless glory awaits

Enemy of God
Purity and innocence is killed
Enemy of God
Peace has died the day when life stood still

Nothing can divide, terror is thy name
Last legion alive, set the world aflame
Enemy of God, masters you have none
Sweet, the victory, when thy kingdom come

Enemy of God, cast deliverance
Fanatical divide, slaying innocence
Enemy of God, answer to no one
Bringing war from Heaven, a thousand fires burn
A thousand fires burn
