Machine Head - I Am Hell (Sonata In C#) Lyrics




I am death
Arms held outstretched
I am hell
Born this mortal shell
I am wrath
Take this bloodbath
God sent me to kill you

What started out as wonder
The smell of scorched earth
It filled me with a sense of bliss
Inside my head the noises show they thundered
With cracking and hiss
One match
Killed the anguish
One act
Left me fulfilled
Destruction now the only catalyst
To save this soul
From these thoughtless kills

Where once a heart was beating
Nothing but embers glow
Our love it serves as kindling
To stoke this flames inferno

I am hell to thee
Down here all shall suffer with me
Die purified
Rise the ashes to the sky

Obsession born of young lust
Incomprehensible the feelings as they come to pass
But now betrayal slowly turns to bloodlust
Through sulphur and gas

Ignite this crime of passion
Loves pyre is set a blaze
The charred remains of all
Compassion was the spark that lit
Your immolation

Where once a heart was beating
Nothing but embers glow
Our love it serves as kindling
To stoke this flames inferno

I am hell to thee
Down here all shall suffer with me
Die purified
Rise the ashes to the sky

So burn
I'll burn it down
I'll burn you down
So you'll never love again (again)

Where once a heart was beating
Nothing but embers glow
Our love it serves as kindling
To stoke this flames inferno

I am hell to thee
Down here all shall suffer with me
Die purified
In this the ashes of your immolation

I
AM
HELL
In the ashes of your immolation

  10. Giulia Garavello

    Fucking Amazing 🍻

  11. G.Phillips

    This, and The Blackening are the albums that define the second era of Machine Head (Post 2002 and beyond)

  12. Cherie Looper

    That stupid song must be like Avenged Sevenfold's! So as Imagine Dragons they don't play fair why won't they make death metal? I wish the Imagine Dragons will rock for the devil.

  13. Alexander Mayhew

    God sent me to kill sex offenderz

  14. Jonathan Ashton

    Everyone else at the AA meeting: **”Hiiiiii, Hellllllll...”**

  15. Aaron Rigg

    Machine head keeps me calm and level headed in video games, go figure.
    Except racing games, need 100% attention there.

  16. Blake Rascon

    Unto the Locust is the fucking heaviest album Machine Head has ever made.

  17. Dustin Reichard

    I wish these guys didn’t fuckin’ break up.. 😢

  18. J Evans

    MK FROM, FAM ANYONE

  19. LT. Charley

    This is so... I don't even have words to describe it. It's just that awesome.

  20. J Evans

    MK from FAM

  21. TheSharkAnt Gaming & More

    I think this song should've earned an award for best guitar solo of 2011.

  22. Jason Parker

    I don't know why but I can just imagine fighting the Duke's Dear Freja from Dark Souls 2 while blasting this song

  23. BahamutEx

    Live version sounds better... :(

  24. william dechant

    Stereo Meter in the Red? CHECK! Windows Rattling? CHECK! Neighbors pissed off ? CHECK! FUCK THE WORLD? CHECK!!!!!

  25. Liam Atikian

    Ahhh, Machine Head. Perfect band to listen to while studying.

    Joshua Yettou

    I don't know how you do that? I'd be too busy singing along, playing air guitar and headbanging 😂🤘

    Andrei

    @Joshua Yettou I do it whilst marking student papers...and headbanging, of course, but just a half bang.

    Alex La Carotte

    Can't agree more

  26. DarKKnightt07

    Pure adrenaline fueled heavy metal!

    TheSharkAnt Gaming & More

    DarKKnightt07 IKR! Machine Head is one of the most influential bands of all time!

  27. TheSharkAnt Gaming & More

    At 2x speed, it sounds like classical inspired death metal.

    Braylen Schmidt

    oh my god it does

    TheSharkAnt Gaming & More

    Braylen Schmidt I'm glad you agree with me!

    clayton tomlinson

    dude lol

    Ishmael Seneca

    at 1x speed it sounds like classical inspired death metal

  28. TheSharkAnt Gaming & More

    The pitch of the strings are in between C# and D, so I assume the band put C# in the title because it sounds like C# to them. To me, it's D. What do you guys think?

    Alium

    TheSharkAnt Gaming its like that so that the natural harmonics of the guitar resonate better

    BahamutEx

    I dont know notes and tbh dont care

    sniperfreak223

    They've been tuning 40 cents above C# since The Blackening. They say it's a sweet spot for getting clarity in the harmonics. So yeah, it's kinda in between C# and D, but closer to C#.

    Ishmael Seneca

    Saying Sonata "in C#" is referring to the key signature. The root of the key signature is the definition of the key, and regardless of what notes occur within this paradigm, the key is C#. It's somewhat nonstandard in modern music to denote the key this way, but there was a time it was considered standard. The highly consistent sonic character of the instrumentation is reflective of the fact it's written in key. Most modern metal disregards key and can be seen to fall only very loosely into a key, which would need to be derived by ear.

  29. Joshua Yettou

    Those drums!!! 🤘

    TheSharkAnt Gaming & More

    J Roc For a groove metal band, the drums are very intense!

    Joshua Yettou

    @TheSharkAnt Gaming & More Just now seeing your comment. Crazy to see that McClain is gone and Contos is back in the band!

    TheJustJoshing

    Joshua Yettou Unfortunately Kontos is only playing for the Burn My Eyes 25th anniversary tour. Matt Alston is their new drummer

  30. Christopher Carvalho

    Super under appreciated album

    Michael Pace

    i agree i listen to it like every fucking day now

    TheSharkAnt Gaming & More

    Christopher Carvalho This song is a great way to start a masterpiece of an album. I don't own a physical copy of Unto The Locust, but I know it's a good album because I heard every song on the original release version on YouTube (speaking of which, this is YouTube, but you already know that).

    unlockable gameplay

    "The blackening was the last good machine head album" fuck off, this and bloodstone were works of art.

    Epitaph

    This was their peak no doubt, hey have gone to shit these days. It's a shame.

    Justin Kister

    Yep Flynn's bullshit social justice warrior killed this band and it's a damn shame...

  31. Anthony Lopez

    Hell Yeah!!!

  32. Ora Sierra

    love this album!

  33. Vanilla-Flavored Doge

    First comment. :P
