Creeping Death" is a song by the American heavy metal band Metallica, released as the lead and only commercial single from their second studio album Ride the Lightning (1984) ("Fade to Black" and "For Whom the Bell Tolls", from the same album, were issued as promotional singles). Written from the perspective of the Angel of Death, it describes the tenth plague of Egypt

Song: Creeping Death Album: Ride The Lightning ‘84 (on/Hammett). Slaves Hebrews born to serve, to the pharaoh Heed To his every word, live in fear Faith Of the unknown one, the deliverer Wait Something must be done, four hundred years. So let it be written, so let it be done I’m sent here by the chosen one So let it be written, so let it be done To kill the first born pharaoh son I’m creeping death. Now Let my people go, land of Goshen Go I will be with thee, bush of fire Blood Running red and strong down the Nile Plague Darkness three days long, hail to fire

Creeping Death is the seventh track on Ride the Lightning. It is a reworking of the Exodus song "Die By His Hand". It is the first and only single from the album. The song is based off the second half of the movie The Ten Commandments, when the plagues are spreading and killing the people.

Written By on/Hammett. So let it be written So let it be done I'm sent here by the chosen one So let it be written So let it be done To kill the first born pharaoh son I'm creeping death. Now Let my people go, land of Goshen Go I will be with thee, bush of fire Blood Running red and strong, down the Nile Plague Darkness three days long, hail to fire

The Creeping Death is the plague inflicted on the Egyptians, also known as the Angel of Death. He was sent by God to kill every first born child. Moses told the Jews to save their first born sons by putting lamb's blood on their doors. Brett from Sutton, OnFirst thing that comes to mind when I hear this song is the movie "Prince of Egypt" . Jameson from Lexington, KyI have to agree with a few people here, there is NOTHING like being in an arena when they were doing this song. Having thousands of people shouting "DIE!
