Malmsteen, Yngwie - Priest Of The Unholy Lyrics

Born out of fire
evil rising
Now we must pay the price
And sacrifice
It's no grand elution
this demon dance
Eternally black
now there's no turning back

Lift the veil of mystery
and this masquerade
Lay your weapons down
surrender now or die

Priest of the unholy
Priest of the unholy
Burning with vengeance
Burning forever
There is no mercy to give
No time to live
The final curtain
Comes down at last
Repent all your sins
All of your sins

Lift the veil of mystery
and this masquerade
Lay your weapons down
surrender now or die

Priest of the unholy
Priest of the unholy
Into the darkness
Your soul must fall
Your gamble has failed
Gamble has failed
At the mountains of madness
There will be no mercy
We must pay the price
And sacrifice
Lift the veil of mystery
and this masquerade
Lay your weapons down
surrender now or die

Priest of the unholy
Priest of the unholy

Malmsteen, Yngwie Priest Of The Unholy Comments
  1. Brian D

    This is a man who has completely mastered his instrument. I saw him live in 1985 at the Philadelphia spectrum. Looking at him in this video makes me realize his true greatness on the guitar. Through the entire performance he never misses a single note. The vibrato, the tremelo, the bends, and oh man those sweeps and arpeggios. All perfectly executed. Man alive I wish I could watch him play again. YJM, you are the greatest of all time.

  2. Max Kristoffersson

    Just sick👍

  3. rafael sanchez gonzalez

    Mr. Malmsteen FOREVER

  4. David Beltran

    There is some amazing phrasing here. You could make an entire album just by writing songs based on this melody motives.

  5. George Lynch

    Those melodies!😍

    The fact that this guy played like that when he was 20 or 21 years old is the craziest part.

    기타의 한획을 그은 사람 맞다..명반도 제작한 아티스트고 그런데..그의 기타는 갈곳이 없는 정신없는 프레이즈의 남발 도대체 기타 지판이란 지판은 다 짧은 시간내에 쓰려고 하는 발악 같은 플레이다..

  29. Ultimate Backing Tracks

  44. OnlyOne

    his picking is silky smooth

  45. Triple S

    Had to pick my jaw up

  46. Dimitrios Desmos

    he is far too bloated for me to not suspect him of being initiated into freemasonry, and artificially have his gender split.

  47. edibadork

    He is awesome at what he does but it's always the same stuff. Saw him live & it was one big shred fest. Got bored & left early.

  48. Suzanna Andrea

    the marvelous excellence

  57. A Taste Of Dick Brown

    1:39 is that a flash move or was the string really out of tune?

  58. Jesus Guerra

    That got to be the strat number 12.345 raped by this man and he's still walking free?? People read this: There will never be no one like yngwie malmsteen, no one!! The master himself, too many cloneswannabe out there but not a single one even close to him. What a great album is perpetual flame where priest of the unholy came from is pure malmsteen back on track i still cant believe it was released 10 years ago. Time is such a bitch.

  59. Marcos D

  65. Russell ward

  77. epic103

    The King!

  78. robbocop33 r

    Nowhere near fast enough or twiddly fiddly enough for me!

  79. thomas666

    How the fuck does that thing stay in tune without a locking bridge/nut?


    You need to use the tremolo arm, and the strings tune up again. And need Wilkinson springs for the better tune stability.

  80. james woynilko

    Still the man!

  81. Jess Jess

    Juste INCROYABLE!!!!!

  82. Dennis Breault

    thats was fuckin rad Yngwie is a modern day master and ahead of his time thats why we still talk about him and listen to him...

  83. Zak Moon

    The backing track he’s using is hilarious

  84. Bronzol

    Yes, Yngve may have quick little fingers on that fretboard, but when would you listen to this?

  85. Bartosz Kowalski

    Only Yngwie can bend on 21 fret and make IT sound like a 22 or even 23


    Yngwie can bend C# to F# :D

  86. Derrick Cunliffe

    iam a tuneless fucker thats wat they call me cause i play the same scale all the time

  87. A Beautiful Perfect Dove

    I figured like most people that his playing was sloppy now'er days, but man was I wrong. Those sweeps are so damn smooth! honestly how!? How do sweep like malmsteen!? my brains broken

  88. Bautista Garais

    This is just plain fucking sick !!

  89. Nanga Parbat

    01:15 hell yeahhhh! And that sliding vibrato to top it off...hell yeahhh.

  90. Bautista Garais

    What a beast ! Damn!!

  91. Greg Rickard

    He keeps idle strings quiet by resting his hair on them.

  92. Hayrullah Kılıç

    Frets burning.

  93. Jimmy Landa

    $30k Rolex. Sweet

  94. Tony Powell

    Tbh honest there is no guitarist that can pick faster or cleaner. I'm not keen on this composition but I can appreciate the man is a god.

  95. malmsteenodyssey

    The master is on fire!

  96. René Solís Rodríguez


  97. A Taste Of Dick Brown

    He is not playing the strings on the guitar neck he is playing spaghetti noodles on the butter stick.
