    hello!
    did you realized that some opeth album titles appear in the song "songs for the damned" from all shall perish?
    i think it's quite funny..
    or do you guys think that's just pure chance?

    the text says:

    Just call me the living dead
    These songs fuel my lust for her flesh
    Just hymns for a heart that's a bloody mess
    I guess we lived like the dead
    Did we stay young 'til we died?
    Are just clarified and classified?
    I still see the summer sky...
    Has stripped, raped and strangled ever made you cry?
    Our...black metal hearts drown in black water parks
    Damnation...delivered us back to the start

    They feel like songs of the damned
    Cursed forever...undead...I am
    Once upon that crucifixion
    We reigned in blood like death had risen, we destroyed the opposition
    Our...black metal hearts drown in black water parks
    Damnation...delivered us back to the start
    Are my arms your hearse if these metaphors stop?

    Without these songs, I would just be so lost
    So lost
    When she rides, I'm stuck in that horror hotel, cursing all 20 eyes
    When she rides...when she rides
    Well it's 2 minutes past the midnight hour and you hate my voice like sugar coated sour
    Caress that carcass
    I miss your heartworks
    My swansong, so insalubrious
    Pouring sweat but the fever remains
    It's all pretty odd but more our darkest days
    'Cause we let it burn and felt strength just the same
    I don't care if you get it
    These songs still scream your name


    some people here who like all shall perish?

    I think it's definitely intentional. Phrases like "my arms your hearse" und "black water parks" are too special and rare to appear together in a random songtext

    Of course the lyrics were intentional.

    Misleading thread title btw.

    I believe the Sabaton Song "metal crüe" has some secret connection to other metal bands zomgomg :rolleyes:

    Take some venom and accept
    That you won't see nazareth
    The rainbow leads you home

    Warrior sent to milky way
    Ufo shooting gamma ray
    A riot of destruction

    Watch the rockbitch go down, vixen spread

    When the priest killed a maiden in the metal church
    Armored saints and warlocks watched the slaughter
    Rage of the slayer forced the pretty maids
    To kiss the queen in crimson glory

    You were born a motorhead
    Bike's in flames you race ahead
    You do the kansas rush

    Racing with the motley crew
    Annihilator chasing you
    With guns and burning roses

    Status quo has been reached, wasps unleashed

    :chorus:

    Take a skyride with me, then you'll see

    :chorus:

    in other words they did a Sabaton, but took song titles and lyrics from other bands instead, to honor them, or because they lack imagination.?
