Burning in its savage fury
Our fates accept not judge or jury
Helpless we must watch it done
For i have seen the Death of the Sun
We are coming to the end
I see my life and i have sinned
It’s too late to change our ways
For man has seen his final days
Solar winds that parch the land
Minions are wasted by Satans hand
A molten globe will torch the sky
As mankind bleats his final cry!
This was written already in 1977 by Robert Garven. Or 1978 with Greg Lindstrom by Interview with Iconic Heavy Rock/Doom Legends.
Death of the Sun (version 1977)
Death of the Sun (Alternate Mix – Metal Massacre 1982)
First released from the v/a Metal Massacre (1982).
From re-released Servants of Chaos (2001)
From re-released King of the Dead (Ultimate Edition) (1984/2017)
This version is a re-recording from the version that appeared on Brian Slagel’s Metal Massacre 1-sampler.
This version appeared on Brian Slagel’s first Metal Blade album ‘Metal Massacre One’. We have pumped up the bass here, I think it was the best song on the album. Our song was faster than Metallica’s, go figure!

Death of the Sun (Album version 1984)
From released King of the Dead (1984/2017).
A re-recorded “Death of The Sun” brings in side two. And while a bit less over-the-top than the amazing “Metal Massacre” version, it still goes hand in hand with the direction and sound of the record.
