Angel of Death Lyrics

Auschwitz, the meaning of pain
The way that I want you to die
Slow death, immense decay
Showers that cleanse you of your life
Forced in
Like cattle
You run
Stripped of
Your lifes worth
Human mice, for the angel of death
Four hundred...

    Its about Josef Mengele, The Infamous Nazi angel of death.

    He preformed the worst ever recorded medical experiments on humans while working at the Auschwitz death camp.

    The song is about Josef Mengele (German scientist who worked for Hitler). He did all kinds of terrible experiments with Auswitz prisoners. This song was made to show how aweful it was to live in camps like those during the WW2.

    When being under extreme torture in those chambers during WW2 a person being tortured would be understood to be praying very hard that an angel would come to help them die faster, rather than to experience another moment of the pain inflicted. Thus the angel of death was a sweet moment of hope, which thus explains the absolute horror of what they endured.

    Just curious though -- given from the album REIGN IN BLOOD where this song serves as the opening track - I'm wondering with the Astoreth pagan-idol God being carried in the ark by Christ (depicted with a horn and a serpent tongue), the Pope (also with horns) - it's peculiar as to who could be the third figure located at the bottom left of the album cover with horns and broken wings ???

    anybody who knows the answer - give me a holler. Thanks.

    Kerry King is a genius!

    This song is about the perverse medical experiments a Nazi physician, Josef Mengele, performed in Auschwitz during the Holocaust.

    Many Auschwitz inmates, referred to Mengele as the Angel of Death, which is the title of this song.

    This song is about the Nazi doctor Josef Mengele, who performed genetic tests on his subjects and also helped create the modern medical science of genetics today.

    KERRY KING FUCKIN' RULES !I don't really know what this song is about, but is great!By the lyrics only this song is definitely about the jewish massacre made by Nazis in WW2.Angel Of Death could be Hitler, 'cause he was the one responsible for this. That's what I think but who can tell what exactly King had in mind when he wrote it...

    This interpretation has been marked as poor. view anyway
