Amazing, sad and beautiful instrumental from Ritchie Blackmore. His fingers are magical and make this guitar speak and cry. - Metal_TreasureV 1 Comment
This isn't metal. It's industrial/gothic rock.
This song is a soldier's point of view while he is suffering PTSD after war and eventually committing suicide.V 1 Comment
Kerry King's sad song, especially knowing that he had to face the death of his guitar tech, and that Jeff was chasing death and he (Jeff) was declining. King vents about this, and vents about when someone refuses to stop chasing death. This song is also super heavy.
This has sad lyrics. It starts with King ranting on he fact that you can't really "know" someone until they've lost self-control. Then, King rants on the fact that Jeff Hanneman is lying to himself and that he has become a slave to discontent. The pre-chorus is probably the saddest part, especially the second pre-chorus with "Can't stop this poison welling, please just take away this feeling". The chorus is about the fact that Jeff is now "chasing death", while the post-chorus is about how many lies Jeff makes to himself. The third verse is more ranting on incompetence to fight the addiction, and how Kerry doesn't want to lose Jeff.
Overall, one of Slayer's saddest, next to Eyes Of The Insane.
The short lived Sludge-Stoner band had some amazing songs. This one is the best ballad they had, - ryanrimmel
Must be #1, lyrics and song are so sad, so depressive for heartbroken.
