Need some help you speed metal fans
I'm putting together a "mix" CD of some songs about nuclear war/Armageddon/the end of the world.

The idea is that the CD builds from generic, fairly mellow songs to a crashing climax.

For example, the first song is David Bowie's "Five Years", which is a slow song where he looks at life and laments that "we've got five years." As the CD builds, lyrically and musically the songs get more and more "urgent" and more specific about the destruction of a nuclear war.

I need a speed metal song for the climax of the CD.

It will be preceded by "Stand or Fall" by the Fixx, and followed by "Electric Funeral" by Black Sabbath and "Goodbye Blue Sky" by Pink Floyd.

Right now I've got Iron Maiden's "2 Minutes to Midnight" in the climax slot but I'm somewhat unsatisfied with that choice. I'd almost like something actually a little faster and more dramatic--something that conveys the feeling of everything being destroyed and life coming to a crashing halt. And, of course, the lyrics have to have something to do with destruction, the end of the world, nuclear war, etc.

Anybody have any suggestions?

That's not a speed metal or other hard rock song, though, sorry.

EDITED TO ADD:

By the way, I will audition ALL selections I haven't already considered, so even if I don't reply to your specific post, rest assured I will play your song suggestions and at least consider them!

Well, not crashing speed metal and all, not nuclear armageddon to be sure. But Armageddon is Armageddon… lyrics below video.

Gonna have to go with Obscura's "Centric Flow." There are certainly others, but its the only one that seems to capture an experience of "the end" in its many facets (for me).

I know, but just thought that the beginning of that song might be interesting if you were cutting and mixing.

If you want a Climax to a CD.

DragonForce is the way to go.

Through The Fire And Flames.

To be fair, as much as I love Five years, to call it a song in any of the categories you listed is quite a way off the mark.

If you're going with Nuclear Assault it has to be "Critical Mass"

Not every song on the CD is hard rock.

I chose Five Years because it conveys the general sense of foreboding that "Something's Coming"--or is it? I realize a lot of this is subjective, but I wanted to use Five Years because the lyrics seem almost "dismissive" that we're in any real danger down the road. As the CD progresses, we see things are falling apart. I used "Mercy Mercy Me (The Ecology)," "For What it's Worth", and "I'd Love to Change the World" as my generic "leading up to something" songs.

Let me run this one past you. Tell me what you think.

Riot's cover of the Deep Purple song "Burn", with maybe stretching the interpretation of the "woman" as the whore of Babylon, or something.

Too much of a stretch?


Another one I thought of was "Armageddon" by Gamma Ray.

I'd like to suggest:

Megadeth: Set the World Afire

It fits your criteria. I'd type more, but I don't usually post to ATS from a phone...and now I'm remembering why.

Dammit arise was going to be my choice - top track


Blackened also perfect. Trivium's Watch the World Burn would be well suited.
