This is the vocalized version of Crueldeity's epic metal masterpiece, 'The Anti-hero'.
A long time back, I asked him if he'd mind if I put a vocal on 'The Concept of God', his flagship track.
He told me I could, but I couldn't figure out any lyrics that would enhance the song, it was just too amazing and complex.
When he submitted this song, I noticed that it had a far more vocal-friendly structure, and asked if he'd mind if I did this one instead. With his blessing, I sat down to write some lyrics, and they flowed out like water. The rest, as they say, is history, and you're now listening to our combined efforts to redefine metal on Newgrounds (more of his effort than mine, though. I'm just the vocalist =p).
Please enjoy, and be sure to vote and leave a comment. I read and reply to every review.
Here are the lyrics:
A man born into a life
of wealth and prosperity
a chance that most would kill for
to him is common, and taken for granted
until the day his world was shattered
his closest loved ones wrenched from this world
desire for vengeance runs deep in his blood
bringing destruction to the scum of the earth
an eye for an eye
a life for a life
by the day, he lives like the rest
a worthy successor to his father's domain
but by the night, he flies ever silent
meting out justice with his own swift resolve
never lets the law stand in his way
fighting the righteous fight
