Metal Songs of the Day – The Latest And the Last + Grand Finale (Demon Hunter Month. Lyrics Included) From Summer of Darkness and Storm the Gates of Hell Albums (2004, 2007)

31 Jan

The Latest and the Last + Grand Finale brings Demon Hunter Month to a pulverizing close, capping off this epic run of incredible Christian metal with two of my all-time favorite Demon Hunter songs; both of which fitting cap off equally epic albums.

The Latest & the Last is the final song on 2004’s Summer of Darkness, a brutal and awesome ending to Demon Hunter’s sophomore album, whereas Grand Finale is the much more recent capping off of 2007’s incredible fourth album, Storm the Gates of Hell Deluxe Edition; and a perfectly fitting epilogue and tribute to the Second Coming of Christ that is about as good a fit as anyone could come up with to close the book on Demon Hunter month, January 2013. Sit back and enjoy two of the most baddest Christian metal songs ever penned!

The Latest & The Last Lyrics:

Words of high cost
YOU SPIT A CURSE AT MY NAME
When thoughts of hate cross
I CAN’T DEVOUR YOUR BLAME
This is your choice
THIS IS YOUR HAMMER TO CRUSH
I have no voice
YOU’RE NOT THE HAND THAT I TRUST

THROW IT DOWN ON ME
THROW IT DOWN ON ME

Before you break your silence
Before we tear this open
We’ll count the dead and hopeless
For every word unspoken

Thoughts, like blood, run
FOREVER STAINING YOUR HANDS
Mouth like cold gun
BEFORE THE BARREL WE STAND
The latest and the last
YOU PUT A PRICE ON MY HEAD
The latest and the last
THE WORST IS ALREADY SAID

THROW IT DOWN ON ME
THROW IT DOWN ON ME

Before you break your silence
Before we tear this open
We’ll count the dead and hopeless
For every word unspoken
Before you break your silence
Before we tear this open
We’ll count the dead and hopeless
For every word unspoken

Spilling through your teeth
You’re sick of what you’ve seen
You point your guilt at every step we took in loyalty
Spilling through your teeth
You’re sick of what you’ve seen
You point your guilt at every step we took in loyalty

Before you break your silence
Before we tear this open
We’ll count the dead and hopeless
For every word unspoken
Before you break your silence
Before we tear this open
We’ll count the dead and hopeless
For every word unspoken

THROW IT DOWN ON ME

Grand Finale Lyrics

You’ll find me face down, hands bound, ready for the blade to make me two
If judgment falls to meet this ground, that fate will run me through
No day of wrath will see me break for that faithless breath of shame
When the heretics come to make that list, be true to speak my Name

Leave all you see
The curse of man is dead, the hourglass turned on its head
And every care will fade away . . .
(To wake a new day)

Take every throe within us all
The very breath inside our soul
We bleed the life into your hold . . .
The very death of our control

No man can bring a fatal sting and I laugh at the gallows thrall
Just line it tight around my neck, so my words will break that fall
FALL

Leave all you see
The curse of man is dead, the hourglass turned on its head
And every care will fade away . . .
(To wake a new day)

Take every throe within us all
The very breath inside our soul
We bleed the life into your hold . . .
The very death of our control

That final day will fall
And those who curse the sky will face the earth . . .
The many turn to one . . .
The God of Gods own righteous Son
Begging for that second BIRTH!

Take every throe within us all
The very breath inside our soul
We bleed the life into your hold . . .
The very death of our control

About Demon Hunter Month
January 2013 is dedicated to the Christian metal band Demon Hunter, arguably my favorite band; and will feature songs from their entire catalog featured daily throughout the month, one a day. Whether you like metal, believe in God or not, check these songs out as you may be pleasantly surprised and hopefully you will discover some new-to-your-ears music to enjoy. Demon Hunter’s sound is extremely diverse, not all songs feature screams and growls, some are slow, sung ballads; others are heartfelt, all are deep with powerful lyrics that will make you think and ponder, as the sound takes you away.
