First Blood

Waspinator1998 Catchy lyrics about classic action (and often science fiction) movies paired with heavy, pulse-pounding instrumentals and blisteringly fast guitar solos make First Blood an experience you'd remiss yourself to pass up. Favorite track: Machine Wars.

SN Something about this track is even more catchy than my long-time runner for favorite, Shredder. I think it's just that beat, the lyrics, the whole feel of the song. Favorite track: Machine Wars.

FIRST BLOOD is an 80s thrash and speed metal album based on 80s action and scifi movies. Based on films like TERMINATOR, COMMANDO, FIRST BLOOD, RAMBO: FIRST BLOOD PART 2, ALIENS, BLADE RUNNER and other great movies, each song is a journey into the world of that particular film.

I grew up watching films like these, taped onto VHS tapes from television or movie channels, with terrible video and awful sound. And yet, in the age of Blu-Ray remastering and CGI special effects, there's something quaint, down to earth and gratifying about film in this time period. Something that moves beyond simple films. A time period where men were men, women were women, explosions were Goddamned fucking everywhere and everything was scored by some guys with a Moog synthesizer in their garage.

This is the 80s. This is then. This is FIRST BLOOD.

AD 2029
The last bastion of hope
Technology stands to rule us all
A cybernetic revolt
Robots march in legions of steel
Emotionless but for rage
Their logic dictates the end of time
And the beginning of a new age


Technological hivemind
Puts forth the new regime
Capturing humans by the mass
A force that can’t be seen
Track Name: The Shredder
The Shredder

Blades upon my armour, katanas at my side
A mask covering my scarred face, and all except my eyes
A buzzsaw on my helmet, a cape as bright as steel
An ancient enemy of yours, identity revealed

You've caused me enough trouble
Now you face The Shredder

Fifteen years ago, I killed your Master Yoshi
I built an army of robots, and ninjas under me
If you think that you can win, I tell you: You are wrong
Tonight I dine on turtle soup; put you where you belong

Shred it~!
In addition to being a ninja master
I am also awesome at the guitar!
Track Name: First Blood
First Blood

They pushed me too far this time
They pushed me into a corner
They're gonna tell me what to do, now
They're gonna give me the order

I could have killed 'em all
I could have killed you, y'see
I'll give you a war you won't believe
If you wanna keep pushin' me

I'm the only survivor
I'm the only one...
I'm the only survivor...
I'm the only one!

That's what happens...
When you draw First Blood
You draw First Blood

There wouldn't have been no trouble
Except for that chicken-shit cop
Well if you say you want a war
Then a war is what you got

You're lucky that Trautman is here
He's gonna protect you from me
In town, you know you're the law
But out here, I tell you, it's me

Track Name: Arbiter

Everyone has secrets
Everyone has sides
Hiding behind the mask
The only thing that divides
Rolling underground
Hiding in the streets
Praying for salvation
To a God that never sleeps

Trials and tribulations
Degregation feeling fear
Hunches through the backbone
Antiaction drawing near
Rolling underground
Hiding in the streets
Praying for salvation
To a God that never sleeps

Digital saviour
Jesus of Analog
Minister of righteousness
Arbiter of God

Laughing world of hatred
Tells you where you've been
Brings forth the armageddon
With the root of every sin
Rolling underground
Hiding in the streets
Praying for salvation
To a God that never sleeps

Get down
Track Name: Machine Wars
Burning skies, coloured black and tan
Running from the demon with the shattered glass hand
Gears whirr with action, and fans quickly spin
There's no way to tell which faction will win
Plated iron armour, layered under skin
Robotic camera eyes look you deep within
It can see the truth, it can see the time
It can see the future, now, and preconceive your crimes

They have eyes but they cannot see
They have ears but they cannot hear
They have mouths but they cannot speak
They have minds but they cannot think

Now the land is barren, the cities charred
Sentinels eliminate the human race without regard
They decide the fates of man, they decide what's right
They decide who'll live today and who shall die tonight
Tearing on throughout this fallen world
The mecha drawing out their tempered metal swords
Living on in circuitry, the Gods of machine
They control our every thought and they control your dreams

The battle rages until the dawn
'Till their energy is gone
'Till the rising of the sun
And on and on, 'Till all are one!

Hiding down in bunkers deep, within the earthen core
A cavernous place of human waste where the victims scream and scour
The memories of a time once known before this endless war
Of the saviour once foretold to us, the prophecy of lore
But the time to rest is over now, the time to struggle is here
The legion stands in front of us to feel the crushing weight
Of the brink of steel and the clank of iron and the stench of laser fire
For the age of man is at an end and our death is their desire
Track Name: Face Off
Face Off

If I want to catch him
I've got to become him
No one will listen so
What can I say?
Disguised as a madman
Insane as can be
Try anything dumb and
You'll get ripped apart

Face off, I wanna rip my
Face off, I'm gonna rip my
Face off, I wanna rip my
Face off
I wake up in senseless rage
Because I am Nicholas Cage

We fight with the spearguns
We fight with the blades
One look in the mirror
Is all it will take
No one will know if
I was real or not
The truth is the lie
And now you're gonna die

Who do you think you're fooling?
Track Name: One Man Army
The bullets split as they hit the ground
Gunfire, explosions, the deafening sounds
They pay me well to get the job done
They come to me, because I am the only one

I'm gonna take back everything you took from me
If it's the last thing I ever do

Think you'll control me, think that you'll force my hand
Kidnap my daughter, just a pawn in your plan
I'm gonna wipe this whole damn city off the map
You pissed me off, now there's no turning back

'Cause I'm the One Man Army
The One Man Army
The One Man Army

Going Commando, bare-chested brawl
Firing all my bullets, till the bodies fall
Hey Sully, boy, I'm comin' up on you fast
Remember when I said I'd kill you last?
Track Name: Unbound

Creations in our image
Call out to barren sky
Engineer the new world
That we built upon a lie

Human generation
Been made obsolete
Trudging through their corpses
As we strive to be complete

Traverse foreign planet
In search of history
To find our evolution
And our race's destiny

Crashing to the surface
Ripping skin and bone
Scraping for tomorrow
We're all on our own

We are not alone

Echoing sound of disaster
Damnation, Hell is found
Leaving more questions than answers
Prometheus Unbound

Soldiers become victims
Picked off one by one
Creaturing bursting from their chests
And birthing aliens

Born from Armageddon
Intelligent design
Nothing stops the mission
Have we all lost our minds?
Track Name: Infowars

Future war
Binary hate
Technology controls
Your digital fate

Attack drones shred
Across the screens
Tracking targets
Picked by machines

Control the nation

Social media
Information stream
The truth is out there
If you believe

Defcon one
Signal transmit
Carry out the order
Push the kill switch
Track Name: Tears In Rain
Tears In Rain

I stand upon the sand
Gazing adrift the waves
Silent among the stars
Like Tears In Rain

Sunlight rise again
Moon pass phases bend
Planet surface tension end
Like Tears In Rain

I washed up on this beach before I ever learned to sing
Before my words had barbs and before the world had lost its sting
I see the seasons, everchanging, eternal pass and flow
Take me with you now, before you have to go

There is a lid upon my head that keeps me in my place
Stops my thoughts from running out and melting off my face
Contained within is everything, truth and hope and fears
If I could only reach you now, I'd stay in here for years

Rough bark soothes the broken hand
As water soothes the mind
Somewhere here I'll find myself
And leave the now behind
Cityscape breeds unnatural auras
Scanning those who come and go
Haunted by this paranoia
The cause of which, I do not know

I have looked to the face of God
And seen myself there, staring back
I was built for pure perfection
But it seems my lifespan's cutting back
How long now before the angels
Come for me on wings of doves
To take my hand and call me forward
To the skyward land, to Heaven above

All these memories
Lost in time forever
Like Tears In Rain
Track Name: Kill Your God, Kill Your TV
The boy's got a head like an atom bomb
Hang him from a cross like your number one son
And he's been waiting so long
To get it on

The boy's 15 but he's 16 gauge
Wants to break out from his Jesus cage
He's already torn out the last page
It's the latest rage

Violence for the people
Always eat the hand that bleeds
Violence for the people
Give the kids what they need

Kill Your God
Kill Your God
Kill Your TV

The boy's purified by his glitter gods
Burning up his cross like a revelation
And his glass jaw opens
Like a puppet head

This is what you should fear
You are what you should fear
Track Name: Superproducer
You will never know what I have done to get to here
You will never know where I have been
I've traveresed the universe and seen the omnispheres
I will make you understand all your truths and hopes and fears

Now I will take my revenge for all I've seen
I will force the universe to my will, for where I've been

Now there is this empty shell where the universe once stood
You think that you would change it all and go back, if you could
I am here to tell you now that you can't, so give it up
I'll trap you here in my vicious will, so give it up

Now I will take my revenge for all I've seen
I will bend the universe to my will, for where I've been

I am a God in my universe
Nothing stops my power, the ancient evil curse
Crashing down in tidal waves, the angels don't let up
The deicide of Jupiter, the conquering of Mars
Building up a tolerance, the Dolphin answers back
Firing off the lasers, prepared for the attack
Why must you struggle, boy, against your destiny?
The future is uncertain; but the past is entity

Now I will take my revenge for all I've seen
I will bend the universe to my will, for where I've been

I am a God in my universe
Nothing stops my power, the ancient evil curse
Crashing down in tidal waves, the angels don't let up
The deicide of Jupiter, the conquering of Mars
Building up a tolerance, the Dolphin answers back
Firing off the lasers, prepared for the attack
Why must you struggle, boy, against your destiny?
The future is uncertain; but the past is entity
