Matthew Rukgaber Across Angel Sword's several releases they do not alter their winning formula one iota: catchy choruses and undistorted guitars turned up to 11 on top of a rock solid rhythm section. Are they stuck in a time warp where Angel Witch is playing on an endless loop? Maybe. But what is wrong with that? Favorite track: Louder than God.

Track Name: Slave to the Groove
they say as you sow you will reap
what's mine is not yours to keep
see a man who is truly an island
and whose temple is never a-sleep

they say if you seek you'll find
but for me there is no peace of mind
no mo-ments to spend in silence
just madness to tear down this shrine

the ritual finally begins
the hour is here
no confession, no sins
get it out, let it all in

CHORUS:

give me thunder give me lightning
and a blast of heavy metal through my veins
the power surge i'm riding
suddenly intoxicates my brain

an angel comes a-ridin'
and i can hear the sound of eight hooves
i'm an altar to the madness
yeah i'm a slave to the groove

they say if you seek you'll find
but for me there is no peace of mind
no moments to spend in silence
just madness to tear down this shrine

the ritual finally begins
the hour is here
no confession, no sins
get it out, let it all in

REPEAT CHORUS
Track Name: Bombs Over Heaven
watch out - the band is here
guitars strapped like bandoliers
seeking danger, ready for combat
missing in action, never to come back

jump into the kill zone
there's a chill through your bones
play gauge fourty-seven
fly like bombs over heaven

look out - it's the force of metal
stepping on mines like distortion pedals
rock grenade shatters the room
high notes pierce like a shrapnel wound

don't feed the dogs of war
unless you're ready for more
we're biting the bullet
to live life to the fullest

CHORUS:

we are bombs over heaven
thrashing everything in sight
we are bombs over heaven
drinking napalm tonight

a hunger for life and a thirst for sin
a heavy metal assault begins
seeking danger, ready for combat
no afterlife, we're already beyond that

don't feed the dogs of war
unless you're ready for more
we're biting the bullet
to live life to the fullest

REPEAT CHORUS

coming fast upon you
welcome the last messiah
obey the master volume
we'll never cease the amplifire

REPEAT CHORUS
Track Name: Gamble or Die
we’ve had the world on our shoulders
and i think it’s time we start over
when you’re left behind, you gotta take the lead
wake from your sleep, get on your feet
stand up for what you believe

we never give up, we never give in
born to lose but fighting to win
we never give up, we never let go
aiming so high, we leave them below

the odds were against us from the start
but the gambler’s flame burns in our hearts
play the cards we’re dealt for all we got
tonight we raise the stakes and call the shots

we never give up, we never give in
born to lose but playing to win
we never give up, we never let go
gamble or die, we’re ready to blow

the moment of truth advances
can’t take the chance of not taking chances
Track Name: Louder than God
burning the soul, the sound took its toll,
we're walking away from the light
done with repentance, true metal our vengeance,
cranking it louder tonight

so let this be heard:
we're ripping the heavens 'till justice is served

some people beg you, some crawl on their knees
but we're here to tell you we do what we please
don't need no excuses for making it loud
nothing can stop us from taking what's ours

no - we're playing it fast and we're playing it hard
this dose of true metal comes straight from the heart

burning the soul, the sound took its toll,
we're walking away from the light
done with our sentence, the madness is endless
and louder than ever tonight

so let this be heard:
we're ripping the heavens 'till justice is served

some people beg you, some crawl on their knees
but we're here to tell you we live as we please
don't need no fate 'cause it's ours to make
we're turning it up as loud as it takes

no - there's nothing too fast, there's nothing too hard
today is the day we play louder than god
