Mercyful Fate Lyrics - Metallica

Review The Song (8)



(Medley of five Mercyful Fate songs:
Satan's Fall, Curse of the Pharaohs, A Corpse Without Soul, Into The Coven and Evil.)

-Satan's Fall

They're walking by the night
The moon has frozen blue
Long black coats a shelter for the rain
Their load must get through

Now bats are leaving their trees
They're joining the call
Seven satanic hell preachers
Heading for the hall

Bringing the blood of a newborn child, yeah
Got to succeed, if not it's Satan's fall

-Curse of the Pharaohs

Away out in Egypt in the valley of kings
Where the mummified pharaohs
sponsored links
Pretend dead in their sleep, yeah

Don't touch, never ever steal
Unless you're in for the kill
Or you've beeen hit by the curse of the pharaohs
Yes, you've beeen hit and the curse is on you, yeah

Oh, the curse of the pharaohs can be so deadly
Just destroying your future
Making it all shady, yeah

Don't touch, never ever steal
Unless you're in for the kill (for the kill)
Or you'll be hit by the curse of the pharaohs
Yes, you'll be hit and the curse is on you

-I'm a Corpse Without Soul

Listen (listen, listen), yeah
I'm a corpse, I'm a corpse
I'm a corpse without soul
Satan (Satan, Satan), yeah
He's taken, he's taken
He's taken his toll, he took it on me

I (I, I), yeah
I'm trapped, I'm trapped
I'm trapped in his spell
Tonight (tonight, tonight), yeah
I'm going, I'm going
I'm going to Hell, inside his spell

-Into My Coven

Howl like a wolf
And a witch will open the door
Follow me and meet our high priestess, yeah-ee-yeah

Come, come into my coven, yeah-ee-yeah
And become Lucifer's child

Undress 'til you're naked
And put on this white coat
Take this white cross and go to the center of the ring, yeah-ee-yeah

Come, come into my coven, yeah-ee-yeah
And become Lucifer's child

-Evil

I was born in the cemetery
Under the sign of the moon
Raised from my grave by the dead
And I was made a mercenary
In the legions of Hell
Now I'm king of pain, I'm insane, yeah

You know my only pleasure is to hear you cry
I'd love to hear you cry
And I'd love to see you die
And I'll be the first to watch your funeral
And I'll be the last to leave
I'd love to hear you cry

And when you're down beyond the ground
I'll dig up your body again
And make love to shame
Oh, lady cry, and say goodbye (goodbye)
Oh, lady cry, and say goodbye

Yeah, you gotta say goodbye
Yeah, 'cause I will eat your mind

Bad A$$ | Reviewer: JoeShmo1979 | 5/9/12

Love the song. Totally kick a$$ riffage. Very Satanic though. Of course Satanic was the hallmark of King Diamond.

I would put this song in the upper echelon of Metallica songs. Top 10? no way, but good nonetheless.

Metallica Top Ten IMHO (no particular order) : Creeping Death, Wherever I May Roam, Fade To Black, Enter the Sandman, Master of Puppets, Harvester of Sorrow, Seek and Destroy, Eye of The Beholder, Sanitarium, and One

9/10 | Reviewer: MetalBen | 10/13/10

This song is so dope. It just plain kicks ass. Yes, its a cover, they didn't write it (or its parts), but they changed it to make it into their own style and it totally owns. Metallica's only bad album was St. Anger, the rest of their albums totally rocked, including Garage Inc. and S&M. Metallica = best heavy rock band. Ever. Period.

Great song. | Reviewer: Smoky | 3/19/10

I. personally think, that it deserves a top spot. My top 5 from Metallica contains more than just 5 songs, y'know? Deur, BTW, don't really, like, insult people just because you have a dif. opinion. Garage Inc. is one of the best works 'Tallica ever did, with smashing songs like this one, Astronomy, Whiskey in the Jar, Die, Die my Darling, Loverman, Am I Evil?, etc. Just 'cause they didn't write it, it doesn't mean it sucks, I find it pretty awesome. They did an amazing job making the songs completely their own style. But ofc, it doesn't compare much to albums like Kill 'Em All, Master of Puppets, ...And Justice for All, Death Magnetic (Great album, very underrated according to me), and I'm NOT mentioning the Black Album, it's got some good songs, really, but it was the path away from their old style, removing the 100-riff-songs and placing in simpler, more blues-y songs. I think, Bob Rock made a real mess, and ruined what was the real Metallica (He did a good job with AC/DC on Back in Black, though). On Death Magmetic, I feel they might have made another step towards their old kinds of music, with the so-called 100-riff-songs. But all in all this song is a 9/10 I'd say.

All of this is written out of pure personal opinions.
- Enjoy 'Tallica, go nuts, get drunk, smoke some weed and have a great f'in' time!

qwiiii ,;) | Reviewer: Anonymous | 2/12/10

love how metallica makes covers even better, (thats of course the meaning of a cover) and i am glad that they brought out a cd with covers they did ;)

mercyfull fate is good, but metallica is it ;)
and indead, this DOESN'T belong in top 5, not even top 10...
these songs ( not in order) i think deserve those places ;)
RTL, Fade to black, Battery, Sanitarium, Hit the lights, Master of puppets, the unforgiven trilogy, the four horsemen!!! ,;) seek and destroy, for whom the bells toll, one, and justice for all, (i'm going over the 10...) ;:-)
enter sandman, sad but true, nothing else matters ;) my friend of misery..
to many to call :)
but covers will always remain inferior to metallica songs ;)

Idiot | Reviewer: Deur | 12/1/09

steff, you dumbass. This song isn't written by Metallica in the first place. Go read up on them. This is a medley of five Mercyful Fate songs. And though this is a great song, it doesn't nearly deserve a place in the top five. Not with songs like 'Battery', 'Ride the Lightning', 'Hit the Lights' or 'Welcome Home'. Idiot.

Amazing | Reviewer: steff | 8/21/09

This song is so underestimated if your really into heavy metal metallica wise this is the song man! Man this is one of my top 5 metallica songs just from the guitar, great riffs, ingenious lyrics from james again so that alone makes this an amazing song

20/10! =)

Mercyful Fate | Reviewer: jim | 12/8/06

Great tribute to the band Mercy Fate. Its a series of 4 of their songs wrapped into one by one of the greateast bands ever. Metallica does a great job of transition between parts and has amazing riffs. Amazing Metal song.
