FOUR BLOOD MOONS – Track 6

The Blood Moon Prophecy is so intriguing, I had to write a song about it. A very rare lunar tetrad has been occurring since 2014. The first three total eclipses happened April 15, 2014, October 8, 2014, and April 4, 2015. The final eclipse of the tetrad will occur on September 28, 2015 – which is the first night Huntress will perform upon the ocean, beneath the final Blood Moon of 2015 as we join Motorhead’s Motorboat cruise. Slayer is headlining and I’ll be right there to experience “Reign in Blood.” Fuck. Yes. September 28th will be a very powerful night, and just perhaps the end of the world as the prophecy suggests. The rapture is a comin’!

“The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and terrible day of the Lord come.” (Joel 3:2)

Something else trippy about the series of four consecutive lunar eclipses: they ALL coincide with Jewish holidays. Passover and Sukkot 2014, Passover and Sukkot 2015. The numerology of 4, specifically the repeated number 4 is also noteworthy, as in addition to the value of 44 and the Blood Moons of the tetrad – this will be the shortest total lunar eclipse of the 21st century, lasting a mere 4 minutes, 44 seconds. 444. This haunts me, I see 444 everywhere I go, all day long, every day. In Barcelona while on tour with Amon Amarth, I met with a tattoo artist at 4:00am and had it inked on my left arm. “Numbers don’t lie. Let’s die.”

I’m super impressed with the musicianship on “Four Blood Moons,” the solos from Eli Santana and Blake Meahl SHRED. Tyler Meahl’s drumming is thunderous and thrashy. It’s a burner and melodic, I had a lot of singing on this track.

Fun fact: Blake Meahl and I wrote the music together and the working title was “9 of Whores!”

Four Blood Moons

Mars, Earth and the Sun
Untie the holy cosmic bond beyond

Children, face the darkness
Gaze into heavens of blood above

Eclipse and shift the night
Comets explode in flight
Monsters riding waves of light

Prophets of doom
Four Blood Moons
Bleeding sky
Murder twilight
Four Blood Moons

Blood spills in Israel
The mystics predicted the change, it’s strange

Children remember this:
The Universe won’t take your shit, lose it

Eclipse and shift the night
Comets explode in flight
Monsters riding waves of light

Prophets of doom
Four Blood Moons
Bleeding sky
Murder twilight
Four Blood Moons

The prophesy of the blood moons
Astrology assigns your death
Numbers don’t lie
Let’s die

Eclipse and shift the night
Comets explode in flight
Monsters riding waves of light

Prophets of doom
Four Blood Moons
Bleeding sky
Murder twilight
Four Blood Moons

Four Blood Moons
Bleeding sky
Four Blood Moons
Four Blood Moons
