Helloween - Phantoms Of Death Lyrics




[Hansen]

There are phantoms here on earth who take away our lives
They kill your kids and they rape your wives
They rip your flesh tear your heart take you down to hell
They don't give a damn on any kind of life

Phantoms bring evil, destruction and death
Night after night the same old game
They all look so harmless but deep in their hearts
Satan is lurking, and he will break out

Always someone at your back only waiting to attack

[Chorus]
Phantoms of death, Phantoms of death

The empire of deceivers is built upon your fear
You'll have to lose it 'cause the end is near
Warheads, armies stand to strike I know it isn't right
I wanna get out of here I don't wanna die

Infernal destruction of fire you'll burn
Then you'll be helpless but it's not too late
Stand up right now and you'll be the winner
Or Satan will get you, take you forever

Genocide everywhere, where's the saviour of this world

[Chorus]
Phantoms of death, Phantoms of death

[Solo: M/K/M/K/K/both]

Where is he the promised saviour the one who'll save the earth
Perhaps he'll come to bury us but then it'll be too late
Who are they who are the phantoms who will end our lives
It's you and me, you and me open up your eyes

Phantoms bring evil, destruction and death
Night after night the same old game
They all look so harmless but deep in their hearts
Satan is lurking, and he will break out

We are all parasites of this world we shall die

[Chorus]
Phantoms of death, Phantoms of death

    Phantoms of Diet are way much more terrifying

  3. Metal storm

    People keep repeating how ripped off was the initial riff from “2 minutes to midnight “ [ Iron Maiden - “Powerslave” - 1984] , but also keep forgetting how much more ripped off was the said riff by Maiden from Accept’s song “Flash Rocking Man” [“Resless and Wild” - 1982]

  29. saveriollo

    Novembyr "Always someone at your back!"

  31. 018wisdom

    3:11.... wow, awesome! 💪💪💪

  32. Captian Zarqouis

    Sounds like some Priest

    Marcin220

    Like "Locked In"

  33. todd8dogs

    I can't believe I still know the lyrics to this song after listening to it over and over in the 80's.

  34. tito quispe alarcon

    El mejor solo de ese álbum de la ptm , desde el segundo  3:33 es un orgasmo

  35. Pedro Anízio Furlanetto

    Far, far better than any of these song that people claiming. This album rules!

    Jani Virtanen

    true amazing album just like the first album what came first too Helloween with Kai Hansen is so great !

  36. Henrique De Souza

    Uma mistura de Iron Maiden com Metallica, mistura the four horseman, com 2 minutes to midnight e phantom of the opera

    Wolf92xd

    Sii también pensé eso! cuando los escuche!! Jaja, el sonido y las voces son similares a Maiden y a Tallica'

  37. Rossana Pérez

    4:08 Beautiful! *-*

    anton džaja jurca

    *nods* goosebumps

    Edelrocker

    3:37 is the law. Neo-classical scales ftw.. :-)

  38. kashhhish

    POOOOWEEEEEEEER

  39. Christian Hartama Halim

    kai hansen \m/

  40. Espen Kruger

    Awesome, yeah!!!

  41. Marlon

    Listen to Swords and Tequila

    Than listen to Welcome to Hell

    Than listen to curse of pharaohs

    Than listen to 2 minutes to midnight

    Than listen to this song

    Lol.

    Metallimark87

    +Marko Savic I don't get why people always like to point out the slight similarity between all those riffs. Almost every Iron Maiden song follows the same riff pattern but they still manage to make every song unique enough and that's all that matters

    Marlon

    Hmmm... I don't think so. All songs are great, but I noticed similarity with those riffs.

    Washington

    +Marko Savic Just enjoy the song for Christs sake.

    Strongpoint100

    then listen to you dont have to be old to be wise

  42. JayTor2112

    Wow, if this is the standard that constitutes a "rip-off" of a riff, then pretty much every riff is a rip-off of hundreds of other riffs. Try to write a riff that doesn't share some similarity with something else, I dare you....

    Jason W Baccaro

    +JayTor2112 Yeah man, just because there is similarity doesn't mean it's a rip off. There's similar influences, styles, and overall just loving similar music. Also, while a riff here and there may be similar to another, you have to look at the whole song, the way the verse melody/chorus' go, per-chorus' and many other sections to the song/songs. The whole package makes songs with similar riffs different.

    EBM

    The Iron Maiden album was put out in '84. This was '85. So, it could be possible this came BEFORE it.

    Urek Mazino

    This is a super late reply but I feel it needs to be said: There is nothing wrong with Homage, it's not a rip-off unless it's a note for note copy without any sense of modifying with intent to improve and stylize. Without nods and improvements to what is already good, a genre doesn't advance. Same goes for films and tv. Without ET there wouldn't be Stranger Things. Worlds a better place with both in it. Awesome music is the same way! The Principle applies to just about anything in the world.

  43. COMBATACE1

    this song is such a Iron Maiden rip-off... unless this was on purpuse. There's the main riff from 2 Minutes to Midnight, the title from Phantom of the Opera, the rhythm from Phantom of the Opera, and a bit of Number of the Beast.

    Mauricio Marín

    that's because this song is so generic, Helloween wasn't nothing at this time, the greatest artists that they become later in the 1988!!

    afoolisharrangement

    Get your ears checked douchebag.

    Ivan Hernandez

    @COMBATACE1 iron maiden is over-rated, helloween are the true legends

    Farhan Anuar

    Chord progression

    Samo Jakub

    2 minutes to midnight was also ripped + maiden ripped off powerslave's main riff from Kiss - Exciter too.

  44. Tony Torres

    Clássico!..

  45. alex koutelidis

    PHADOMS          of  DEATH

  46. alex koutelidis

    kaikaikai kaika

  47. KGN


    I like how the vocals seem almost atmospheric like it's melted with the guitars.

  48. Geezer Butler

    Very Clive Burr inspired drumming here...

  49. Zed TheKid

    Kai was fucking perfect in the vocals!

  50. Dimitri Profundeso

    I didn´t mean that Kai was a bad singer in Walls of Jericho. It´s just a comparison with nowadays.

  51. Dimitri Profundeso

    Why? I didn´t disconsider the song. I like the song. Don´t misunderstand.

  52. degergard

    Your comment is "acceptable". If you know what I mean. ;)

  53. Dimitri Profundeso

    To complete: Kai Hansen in Walls of Jericho used to sing in very high pitch

  54. Dimitri Profundeso

    The guitar work here is awesome by Kai/Weikath, very techinical,makes the listening engaging. This is one of the best tracks of the debut full-length album by Helloween. The drum lines are original and indicate wide use of skill by Ingo,gives a progression feel the way it shifts. I´m a great fan of Kai Hansen,he´s a genius (this song was his idea). The vocals in this album were less trained,more aggresive in comparison to his Gamma Ray days, but still acceptable.

  55. wesley felipe

    not kneel before the devil, destroying all prisons

  56. Jose Correa

    ataaaaaaack!

  57. Small kids' Bikes

    i fucking love this song !!!

  58. ziros tilis

    helloween θεοί !!!!!!
