This song describes in details the end of the world. And it's a great song.

8 Black Prophecies - Dark Angel

"Nuclear fire
The earth has expired
The worldy lands became a massive funeral pyre

Due to the nuclear winters' frost, life is denied". - Metal_Treasure

9 The Blackest Day - Annihilator

"Mankind is melting, life just drains away
Darkness, death, this is the blackest day

Obliteration, disintegration, it's all turning to dust
From the force of the impact, humanity beginning to rust
The world begins to crumble, it's all just a matter of time
This is the ultimate chaos, this is the end of the line

Burning fire, screams of pain and fear
Piercing higher, hell on earth is here" - Metal_Treasure
