Creeping Death


This song should serve as a warning to all who persecute the people of God.

For as it is written...

Jer 30:20 ... and I will punish all that oppress them.

ten commandments

When the Pharaoh of Egypt refused to let go the people of Israel to worship God in the desert,
God bestowed ten plagues to Egypt. Thru Moses, God showed His power and gave deliverance to the people of Israel.
Even the Pharaoh's sorcerers submitted to the power that Moses showed to them.
It took up to the tenth plague to convince Rameses (the Egyptian Pharaoh) to let go the people of Israel.
Such a cruel heart. It was only until his son died when he gave up to the power of God.

The ten plagues were as follows:
Exodus 7:14-25 -> rivers and other water sources turned to blood
Exodus 7:26-8:11 -> amphibians
Exodus 8:12-15 -> lice or gnats
Exodus 8:16-28 -> flies or beasts
Exodus 9:1-7 -> disease on livestock
Exodus 9:8-12 -> unhealable boils
Exodus 9:13-35 -> hail mixed with fire
Exodus 10:1-20 -> locusts
Exodus 10:21-29 -> darkness
Exodus 11:1-12:36 -> death of the first-born

ten commandments

Before God sent the tenth plague that will eventually kill all the Egyptian first born sons
(including the firstborn of the maidservant and the firstborn of the beasts),
God told the Israelites thru Moses to paint the lamb's blood to their doorpost so the plague of death will pass over them.
There was a great cry in the Egypt that has never been and never will be.

This is what you get for denying the power of the God almighty!!!

Behold

After the deadly blow of the tenth plague, Pharaoh orders Moses to leave with all of their people and livestock.
The Hebrews started their Exodus from Egypt. The Pharaoh, out his rage, made a hot pursuit to the Hebrews in the Red Sea.
Moses divided the water of the sea to allow the Hebrews pass and again closed it to drown the Egyptian armies to death.

Death will come to those who transgress the Lord
Death will come to those who defy the will of the Lord

DIE by my hand! I creep across the land! Killing first born man!

Creeping Death is a song written by Metallica. While watching the 1956 classic film The Ten Commandments,
as the fog rolls in and killing the Egyptian first born sons,
Cliff Burton said "Look...creeping death." And James Hettfield replied "Whoa, dude, write it down! Sheer poetry!"

Most of the lyrics were either taken directly from the Bible or from the movie.
Four of the ten plagues were mentioned in the song: Blood, Plague, Darkness, hail to fire
The lyrics was written in point of view of the Destroyer (the 10th plague) the one who killed the first-born.
Most of the time, during Metallica concerts, the wailing cry of "Die, Die, Die, Die" are being shouted by the audience.

This song is such a masterpiece and one of the most frequently played song during Metallica concerts.
The lyrics of the song maybe considered to be one of the greatest lyrics for a metal song ever created!!!




Creeping Death


Slaves! Hebrews born to serve, to the pharaoh
Heed! To his every word, live in fear
Faith! Of the unknown one, the deliverer
Wait! Something must be done, four hundred years

So let it be written
So let it be done
I'm sent here by the chosen one
So let it be written
So let it be done
To kill the first born pharaoh son
I'm creeping death

Now! Let my people go, land of Goshen
Go! I will be with thee, bush of fire
Blood! Running red and strong, down the Nile
Plague! Darkness three days long, hail to fire

So let it be written
So let it be done
I'm sent here by the chosen one
So let it be written
So let it be done
To kill the first born pharaoh son
I'm creeping death

Die! Die! Die! Die!

Die by my hand
I creep across the land
Killing first born man
Die by my hand
I creep across the land
Killing first born man

I! Rule the midnight air the destroyer
Born! I shall soon be there, deadly mass
I! Creep the steps and flood final darkness
Blood! Lambs blood painted door, I shall pass

So let it be written
So let it be done
I'm sent here by the chosen one
So let it be written
So let it be done
To kill the first born pharaoh son
I'm creeping death
