about

The survivors learn of rescue that is attempting to reach their besieged home. Even with their new weapons, knowing they can kill that which has already died, they cringe at the idea of facing the onslaught of the roaming masses that wish to consume them.

This track was fun as hell to write. It actually started as an attempt to make a completely different kind of song with the opening riff, but that didn’t last long as I heard the potential for something bigger in it. The intro progressed logically and when I hit the verse I was ready to add some melody on top, but hit a wall. Fortunately enough, Viking Guitar had established Death Slam prior to starting this song, and that month’s theme was Hot Fuzz/Shaun of the Dead. That initially led to the title being what it is, but it inspired me to go the extra mile and do vocals. Of the three vocal tracks for the album this was the first I wrote and recorded them in a friend's kitchen before redoing them at home practically two years later. Of course, Norrin_Radd’s Anomaly was incredibly inspirational in the vocal department and I similarly used RushJet1’s RJDMC to bitcrush the vocals into NESdom. After writing a few lyrics I knew this song was coming together, and since Norrin had the biggest impact on my chiptuning ability and inspiration, I wanted him to do a guest spot. He comes in right after the second chorus and kicks off the solo for me (any fan will hear it right away), doing a damn fine job all around. Obligatory gunshot at the end of the song.

lyrics

Run!
Flee in abject terror
From all those that you once cared for
Mother, neighbor, roommate, friend
All of them have met their end
Nothing now but lifeless eyes
That see you as their tasty prize
Hands that once gave love's caress
Will pull you down to certain death
All the joy that you remember
You'll forget as they dismember
Feasting on your life so precious
They find your entrails delicious

A well placed bullet
A sharpened stick
When cranium collides with brick
A three wood club
A baseball bat
Making zombie skulls go "splat!"

They have no fear they're coming straight for you
To taste your flesh there's nothing they won't do
They'll never stop because they feel no pain
You must remove the head or destroy the brain

Ripping! Shredding! Tearing flesh away
The only thing around you is the stench of their decay
They'll drain the marrow from your bones
And then make you a mindless drone
Rotten fingers rake your face
Humanity's great fall from grace
They'll turn your body inside out
And savor every scream and shout
To eat your brain hear comes the flood
To drag you down and drink your blood
For the essence of life they thirst
This is truly Hell on Earth

Stay inside
Lock your doors
This world you knew is no more
Will you fight?
Or run away?
Or be the undead's buffet?

They have no fear they're coming straight for you
To taste your flesh there's nothing they won't do
They'll never stop because they feel no pain
You must remove the head or destroy the brain

They stalk the night
For one to bite
They'll be here soon
To spell your doom

Now come to life your worst nightmare
You can't escape their vacant stare
The look that bores into your soul
Continues as they eat you whole
Hunger drives this deadly horde
As they propel you toward a
Fate that's so much worse than death
You cannot comprehend
What it's like to have no mind
Humanity is left behind
Fight them off with all your might
Or you will not survive this night

Persevere
Stay alive
Do all you can to survive
Fortify
And defend
Man up now or it's the end

They have no fear they're coming straight for you
To taste your flesh there's nothing they won't do
They'll never stop because they feel no pain
You must remove the head or destroy the brain

They have no fear they're coming straight for you
To taste your flesh there's nothing they won't do
They'll never stop because they feel no pain
You must remove the head or destroy the brain
