Exodus - Riot Act Lyrics




Rise up and revolt
Overthrow the government
Level all the temples
Destroy the monuments

Return to anarchy
Defy the Christian law
Prepare for mutiny
Prepare for coup d'etat

So begins our final riot act
Now that your in, there'll be no turning back
Smash everything, wreck it all with pride
The power of our revolution won't ever be denied

Reduce the halls of power
To ruin and to ash
An end to Christianity
An end to holy mass

The dawn of an iron age
Return to Pagan law
Lex Talionis
We rule by fang and claw

So begins our final riot act
Now that your in, there'll be no turning back
Smash everything, wreck it all with pride
The power of our revolution won't ever be denied

    Madara ushiha jajajaj

  6. IcedFate

    tabletop gaming has taught me, that’s an Elder Sign from Cthulhu Mythos.

    with anti christian lyrics, making no lovecraftian references.



    these guys still kick ass somehow

  7. Maximus Gigantos

    Masterpiece of thrash!

  8. Maximus Gigantos

    Piercing Thrash!

  9. Philip Bair

    I wonder how many people are oblivious to the fact that Gary's a liberal, and that his lyrics reflect that. That said, probably some of the most insightful and hard-hitting lyrics in thrash are exodus songs.

    E KE TI Tattoo Art Georgios Seitopoulos+ Sounds like how ISIS acts, I think we would be better having to deal with Christians !!! HAIL SATANAS!!!

  39. Nuraalek

    Am I a bad person if my favourite Exodus albums are the ones with Dukes?

    Joey Beattie

    Because dukes is the best

    ashypoosays

    dukes is the best that’s a fact

    Michael Haney

    Zetro is good, however, Dukes is God.

    Kyle Goodman

    Not at all, Dukes was the best Exodus vocalist. The problem was his era coincided with Lee Altus trying to turn every Exodus song into a Heathen song.

    The Destroyer Of All

    Dukes is a GOD.

  40. Hot chocolade popcorn

    So ein geiles Lied 👊 \m/

  41. Kimmy Jimmy

    Play the DOOM remake while this song is playing.

    Attila Sánta

    Fuckin insane! :D

    Chaos Undivided

    Holy shit, yes!

    *3 days later*

    That was fucking awesome!

  42. ELI LILLY

    See if you can find the Gay Military Pics of Justin Bieber sucking Soldier cock. I think they still come up in Google Images.

  43. Eoin Clarke

    I can't stop laughing at the part where it shows the guitarists and bassist doing their thing then cutting to Dukes making a wank motion with his mic unintentionally

    Nigel

    I jack to Gary too

    Lifeisalie

    Eoin Clarke “guitarists and bassist doing their thing”
    Its called shredding you fkn normie

  44. Manuel Salcido

    FUCK YEAH!!!!!

  45. bernardo bernar

    FUCK YEEEEEEEEEAAAAAAAAA

  46. A Dirty Scumbag

    Comrade Dukalis

    +brickhammerSS The Legacy?

    brickhammerSS

    +bublok my bad was watching a Testament video earlier

    Alex Phillips

    +brickhammerSS how could you possibly mix Testament up with Exodus? proves that you were just talking shit to talk shit. Do you not hear that Riff? Bitch.

    brickhammerSS

    +Alex Phillips Its pretty easy to do when you're drunk. piss off faggot

  55. Sebastián Forero

    1:16 Plague Doctor!!!

  56. ailouros1982

    put the volume at the max and MOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOSH LIKE HEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEELLLLLLL!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Metal Head

    No one, but no one, has the sound system like I do on my computer for the very reason of this video. Ha ha ha ha Fuck an A!

  57. Alex Ferus

    hellyeah great thrash metal !! i miss rob dukes !!

    Rob Hell Awaits

    @Alex Ferus Me too.  Rob Dukes is the best!!!

  58. juan muniz

    These guys fucking rock!!! \m/

  59. karl cauckwell

    why have steve back. this singer was better for exodus. stupid move. because gary and steve will fight over money again

    Obitchuary Boi

    karl cauckwell just for future reference, his name is Rob Dukes, in case you didn't know.

  60. karl cauckwell

    gary is a dick from when i meet him in 1990.

    karl cauckwell

    @MrKanar360 I don't have to tell you why. Ask him, he was just a dick... 

    karl cauckwell

    @MrKanar360 he just was and I still have heard from some people who have meet him think the same so its what it is. 

  61. Dust Devil

    Pretty disappointed that Exodus said they cut Dukes loose cut he sounds to punky ...total lie. He rips

  62. hawaiianpunch808

    riot act should be a video for the ferguson thing

    Hitman1m1

    heavy metal hitman face book

  63. Quinton Mayo

    Exodus, Overkill and Testament are the only old school thrash bands still smashing fools in the face.

    Yan Doroshenko

    Kreator, Destruction, Sodom.

    David Catanus

    Q deMayo death angel, flotsam and jetsam, metal church and voivod are doing pretty well also

    danidrum vlc

    and DEATH ANGEL

    Karvilen Karvilen

    Иди на хуй!

    Mihuta Andrei

    Dont forget sodom, kreator and SLAYEEEERRRRR

  64. Acid Fuzz

    Much as I love me some Exodus, their music videos are... interesting, to say the least. Cliche as fuck. Metal was never about music videos in the first place though \m/

  65. MadLocustRising1

    intro riff rythm sounds alot like War Is My Shepherd. very cool.
    must admit that i miss Steve on vocals. he was amazing.
    something about this newer vocalist i dont like... propably that smartass/tough guy sounding attitude when he sings/yells. not as cool as the old stuff.
    just being honest.

    js007kcor

    Is a good frontman after all...maybe the reason why many fans doesn´t like it ..is because he sings in a similar way like a metalcore singer..

  66. Roberto .Giardino

    Great song! But the video sucks

    Drug Joza

    Roberto .Giardino Metal videos have never been impressive but this one sure is epic and creative imo

  67. quentin lean

    cant beleive people think satan is their savior when is is not a creATOR BUT A DESTROYER 
    SHAME

    MrBierbomber

    ...hail satan !

    Pim Videoclips

    What method did you use to figure out that Satan is is the evil on and God the good one?

    they are both more powerfull then you and both capable of deciving 

    MrBierbomber

     and btw if you read the bible you'll see that god killed way more people than satan did...so who's the real destroyer ?

    beanielord94

    @MrBierbomber true

    Pim Videoclips

    "People" like this have no interest in reason or evidence all they want to do is Preach Preach Preach and tell people they have to accept or else they go to hell. AKA terrorism

  68. Crimson Haze

    When I hear music like this a grin just appears out of nowhere 

  69. Billyjoe Hoyt

    titts for tatts ;)

  70. MrMuench

    Great newer Exodus with a good old throwback old school style thrash riff too! Dig the Dethklock type video...so metal!

  71. kritsadar ketepunt

    Oh!! yes \m/

  72. FoxMetalGear

    Pat-Riot Act

  73. Adrian Muñoz

    Really this is a GREAT ALBUM!!!

  74. FanManFlo

    Great song of which I especially love the thrashing riff part at 2:08 - very cool video cut also! And Gibson's bass sound is truely awesome anyway (how the hell can he achieve this with finger picking?!).

  75. Bruno Henrique

    Thrash band with a trash video HUEHUEHUE

  76. Trierraice/トリ

    Sachiel, is he?

  77. Mercedes Fernández

    you're the posser

    i don't like bvb but they are music and people who like not magically become possers

  78. Mercedes Fernández

    I'm agree

  79. arrackattack

    it's not the number of riffs you use that count, it's the way you use them to make a good song, those 2 riffs here are enough thrashy and killer to make me rip my neck off in front of my pc !

  80. Pauly Mcmuffin

    good to see them still thrashin it out for 30 plus years i loved um in the early 80s and still love um today #1 in the second big 4

  81. religiousabuse

    poser detected.

  82. CREWKABANGER

    Hey I love bvb and I'm diggin this shit too. You can't be alittle close minded shit.

  83. religiousabuse

    so much beter then shity bvb

  84. Blake Bagnell

    Ehh I like Zetro's and Rob Duke's era more than Paul Baloff's...

  85. Jason Borotra

    I agree the drummer is great but he isn't the only great drummer out there. To each his own style but there are others just as good.

  86. Rua

    Looks easy , but is not

  87. Daniel De Santis

    Literally 2 riffs in the entire song... -_-

    Mark Jaramillo

    Kept it simple what's wrong with that? Go listen to Progg i'm sure you will find you're cup of tea there with 40 riffs in one boring log ass song.

  88. richard harrison

    FUCK YEAH!!!!

  89. TheGlobuleReturns

    When did James Hetfield get so fat?

  90. peterfiechtl
