"Rise of the Fallen" is a track of the Soulfly album Omen, released in 2010. The album's only single was released coincidentally on the same day when the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico began on April 20, 2010.
This song begins with Static-X-like riff with cyber tones mixed in, then sitar tones would lead to slow, death metal riffs. Max Cavalera and guest Greg Puciato (of The Dillinger Escape Plan) wrote this song about old soldiers dying in war then rising out of the graves to kill the authorities.
The music video has scenes of men jumping onto a crowd a couple times, growing into fighting in a concert hall.
Up from the ashes of despair and loss Years of enslavement now come with a higher cost Bureaucracy you chose to rule with fear Now feel the wrath that comes from all those years You choose to shut your eyes Now repent Rise of the fallen Suffer the hand you dealt yourself Rise of the fallen The fallacy of fractured wealth Rise of the fallen Ignore the parts of your machine Rise of the fallen Drink from the fountain of your poisoned dream Destroy the world and all the wars we're on Ashes to ashes, dust to dust will come I the destroyer of both worlds Born from the womb of insult I come You chose to shut your eyes Now repent You chose to shut your eyes Now repent Rise of the fallen Suffer the hand you dealt yourself Rise of the fallen The fallacy of fractured wealth Rise of the fallen Ignore the parts of your machine Rise of the fallen Drink from the fountain of your poisoned dream Drink from the fountain of your poisoned dream Bled from your machine Choke on the spirits that you tried to eat Now on you they feed You build the part; now you play it We become the master Drown in all the laughter Law from below; now you obey it Death comes never faster This is the disaster
