God bless German bands in the 80's. Really. God bless
their riffs, (although often a bit thin for my taste),
God bless their infinite arsenal of bullet belts and
leather pants,God bless their snare drums that sound
like a spoon hitting a pillow, and may the Almighty
bless their sad attempt at sounding evil with their
almost non-existing knowledge of the English
language. Now, English is my second (or third,
depending on who you ask)language and I'm a
far from being a master of Slayer's mother tongue,
but I know my limitations. Yes, I know it was I who
coined the term "Welcome to the Hell", but let's
forget about that for now, ok?
Maybe Destruction, Sodom and Kreator should have pitched in for an
English tutor, before writing lyrics for their early records. I mean,
come on! Sodom's Tom Angelripper actually pronounced the word
"bible" as "beebel." That's just sad. I could find hundreds of examples
of bad English in all these liner notes, but let's just look at one
album: Kreator's 1985 masterpiece (no sarcasm here, this record is
fucking awesome), Endless Pain.
Please follow me in a journey through the past…a past full of evil,
bad grammar and shit that just doesn't make any sense."In your heart is hate terror isWhat is "hate terror" exactly? Whatever it is, I guess it's cold, because

its "freezin" my bones."The voice of Hell sound is so nice"Yeah, I heard Hell has a lovely singing voice!"You'll burst down their heads and spread hellish heat"
What other way is there to spread "hellish heat" if not by
"bursting" heads?"And the're ain't no God who helpsNo comment.

Please? What?"Casting a spell Lord of all hellsGod has "fell"? Dammit, I always wanted to have "fell", but my mom

Hell yeah, Mille, let's "thrash all down"!! What's this obsession
with bursting heads?

"Dot rot"…did he mean dot com? Maybe they were ahead of their time."Flashlight is taking all the flash

This just doesn't make ANY sense. A flashlight? A "fast black race"?
Like Jesse Owens? Laughing at what? I don't get it, but I'm sure it's
pretty fucking evil. As evil as the outfits that they wore to the beach
in the picture up top. Pure evil.
