Avenged Sevenfold: Beast And The Harlot (2006) – Song Review

A weirdly fantastic song!

Avenged Sevenfold… Ok, so I have to admit that I don’t really know much about them… I have only recently gotten in to their work… But I have to say that I am really impressed!

The type of heavy metal that they do is not always easily mastered… But they do it pretty expertly! What I mean is, is the type of speed metal that some of these newer bands do, for whatever reason the lead singer, and the people who write the music seem to think that it is a good idea for them to be playing this type of music like it was just some one trying to scream alot…

The lead singer of Avenged Sevenfold doing, ‘Beast And The Harlot’!

But Avenged Sevenfold doe not do that… I really like that!  They play their instruments like they are playing speed metal… But the lyrics are just like a normal song with a fun chorus! And that is a large part of the reason why I like their song, Beast And The Harlot from their the B-Side of their 2006 album, ‘Burn It Down’!

This song is just one of their many fun songs that have come out of the years… As a matter of fact, this particular song was part of a couple of the Guitar Hero games, as well as one of the Rockband Games!

If this is the first time you are hearing this song… Enjoy!

And if you like this song, please enjoy the lyrics for Avenged Sevenfold’s, ‘Beast And The Harlot’ (2006)!

 

This shining city built of gold, a far cry from innocence
There’s more than meets the eye round here look to the waters of the deep
A city of evil
There sat a seven-headed beast, ten horns raised from his heads
Symbolic woman sits on his throne, but hatred strips her and leaves her naked
The Beast and the Harlot
She’s a dwelling place for demons, she’s a cage for every unclean spirit, every filthy bird
And makes us drink the poisoned wine to fornicate with our kings
Fallen now is Babylon the Great
The city dressed in jewels and gold, fine linen, Myrrh and pearls
Her plagues will come all at once as her mourners watch her burn
Destroyed in an hour
Merchants and captains of the world, sailors, navigators too
Will weep and mourn this loss with her sins piled to the sky
The Beast and the Harlot
She’s a dwelling place for demons, she’s a cage for every unclean spirit, every filthy bird
And makes us drink the poisoned wine to fornicate with our kings
Fallen now is Babylon the Great
The day has come for all us sinners
If you’r enot a servant you’ll be struck to the ground
Flee the burning, greedy city looking back on her to see there’s nothin’ around
I don’t believe in fairy tales
And no one wants to go to Hell
You made the wrong decision
And it’s easy to see
Now if you want to serve above or be a king below with us
You’re welcome to the city where your future is set forever
She’s a dwelling place for demons, she’s a cage for every unclean spirit, every filthy bird
And makes us drink the poisoned wine to fornicate with our kings
Fallen now is Babylon the Great
She’s a dwelling place for demons, she’s a cage for every unclean spirit, every filthy bird
And makes us drink the poisoned wine to fornicate with our kings
Fallen now is Babylon the Great
