Slayer – War Ensemble

“War Ensemble” is a song by thrash metal band Slayer from their 5th studio album “Seasons in the Abyss.” It is featured in Guitar Hero: Metallica in the final tier of the game for most instruments, and is considered to be the single hardest song by some. With a vast amount of crazy strumming and guitar solos from hell, inhumanely fast thrash beat and some extremely fast double bass parts, there should be nearly no easy parts to give you your breath back.

A youngster from my alma mater told me the Defensive Linemen get pumped up listening to ‘Drowning Pool’ and some similar “stuff” before football games.I asked him if he’d ever heard of Slayer. No? (of course not. kids these days) I wrote down War Ensemble and told him ” Don’t fuck around, listen to this. And remember ‘The sport is war. Total war’.The next time I see him he gets this “Oh-my- God” look on his face. Well how did it go? He says “Fuuuuuuuuck… I hit a guy so hard in the second quarter he had to leave the game and he never came back in!” I said “Pass on what you have learned my son”

Lycris

Propaganda death ensemble,
Burial to be,
Corpses rotting through the night,
In blood laced misery,
Scorched earth the policy,
The reason for the singe,
The pendulum it shaves the blade,
The strafing air blood raid,
infiltration push reserves,
Encircle the front lines,
Supreme art of strategy,
Playing on the minds,
Bombard till submission,
Take all to their graves,
Indication of triumph,
The number that are dead,
Sport the war, war support,
The sport is war, total war,
When victory’s a massacre,
The final swing is not a drill,
It’s how many people I can kill,
Be dead friend from above,
When darkness falls,
Descend into my sights,
Your fallen walls,
Spearhead break through the lines,
Flanked all around,
Soldiers of attrition,
Forward their ground,
Regime prophetic age,
Old in its time,
Flowing veins run on through,
Deep in the Rhine,
Center of the web,
All battles scored,
What is our war crimes,
(Era forever more…war),
Propaganda war ensemble,
Burial to be,
Bones shining in the night,
In blood laced misery,
Campaign of elimination
Twisted psychology,
When victory is to survive,
And death is defeat,
Sport the war, war support,
The sport is total war,
When victory’s a massacre,
When victory is survival,
When this end is a slaughter,
The final swing is not a drill,
It’s how many people I can kill,
