Volbeat - The Devil's Bleeding Crown


Volbeat - The Devil's Bleeding Crown - Meaning of the song


This is the first single released from Volbeat's sixth album, Seal The Deal & Let's Boogie. Guitarist Rob Caggiano explained:

"First off, that was definitely the first song that we hashed out. We actually started playing… We were playing half of that song on the last tour we did, just to kind of try it out and see how it worked, and the fans seem to really dig it. We played it once in its entirety in Denmark, the last show we did, and it went over great." "But lyrically, I'm not totally sure how it fits in with the album concept. It's something about the son of Satan."


The Devil's Bleeding Crown - Lyrics


Falling from the sky, they're cast out from the heaven's light Drenching the soil with blood, baptized in the fire hole The Devil's spawn no longer breathes Descending angels and fallen kings Raise your hands, what do you hold? The Devil's bleeding crown! Call upon it's Father, bless the goat, the womanizer Take him to Astaroth, Inanna's temple of Uruk The Devil's spawn no longer breathes Descending angels and fallen kings Raise your hands, what do you hold? The Devil's bleeding crown! They gathered all the children outside the church And never would they know what went on in there Close the door and hear all the angels scream "Oh mercy, mercy, mercy, oh mercy, please!" Down, down, down Down below you can hear his hoof digging through the ground Oh Lord, Lord, Lord The horned one is back and he wants his crown The Devil's spawn no longer breathes Descending angels and fallen kings Raise your hands, what do you hold? The Devil's bleeding crown!
