Based on Gaston Leroux's The Phantom of the Opera.
Great song. Their live version is probably even better (the song sample is exactly the version that I mean, it's with Bruce D. on vocals) - Metal_Treasure
Inspired by Bram Stoker's Dracula.
One of my top 3 songs by this band. It's a reference to the Crimson King, the main antagonist of The Dark Tower series by Stephen King. Lyrics are written from Randall Flagg's point of view ("Call me Flagg, I'm the Good Man, I'm the Dark Man").
In an interview Hansi stated that the Crimson King is Satan. - Metal_Treasure
Inspired by Mary Shelly's Frankenstein.
Inspired by Stephen King's The Dark Tower series (The Dark Tower counts cause it's half horror).
