This song is actually one of the first songs we created. It's about our pain and anger towards the polution that our earth is suffering.
As a metalband we focus on the more 'darker' side of paganism. Using frustrations and anger as a fuel for our songs. This leads to highly agressive, extremely fast music.
The lyrics describe how nature turns into a sort of monster of destruction. A gigantic treeman with tendrils as arms, taking revenge on humanity for their wrongs. To picture nature as a gigantic monster slaughtering humanity is a way to make people see nature as a living thing. Something they should not mess with. People seem to think the earth is their little plaything and they can treat as they like, while they forget it is the one thing that keeps them alive. Perhaps when nature is pictured as a threat, they will start to see the life it holds.
We decided to start the song with a soundsample, as it brings an interesting extra to the lyrics. We were amazed how well the sample fitted the song, as it flows into the start where the drums kick off and the guitar starts playing. The shouting can be heard well into the song, emerging both as a unity.

(words & music by Slamfist)
Mystical druid chanting
time for nature's rebellion
all of the elements combining
rage builds up from inside
lost for all when it dies
years of fucked up polution
the earth now rots from inside
got no regard for nature
you forget, without it you die
hatred builds up from inside
enjoy the last moments of your life
from darkened forests emerging
deep from inside the earth it stirred
wilderness avenger now animated
humanity to decimate
natures revenge written in blood
natures warrior roars
protective ogham litters his chest
unkillable green machine of death
ensnaring you in vines and tendrils
as it feasts on nutricious intestine
