You're not a hero, can't become a priest - so have to strike to Elm Street - Knock 'em Out - With A Metal Fist !
Face The Reaper begins with lyrically melancholic acoustic guitar solo. After that we hear the cry "Reaper!" and dense driving part begins, leading the story at a medium pace, accelerating in the instrumental solo.
The leitmotif begins its journey from the first seconds, forcing to Kiss The Canvas. The lively, rhythmic composition integrates melody and aggression in a single burst.
