“Ave Satani” from the Omen film score is like a black mass. The refrain "Sanguis bibimus, corpus edimus, tolle corpus Satani" (ungrammatical Latin for, "We drink the blood, we eat the flesh, raise the body of Satan") is used with alternating "Ave Satani!" and "Ave Versus Christus" (“Hail, Satan” and "Hail, Antichrist!"). The correct Latin would be "Sanguinem”, but I think they used the wrong word because it is easier to pronounce and works better in the lyrics. Jerry Goldsmith's original version is an all time classic but this version it more appropriate for Rock Band with a full rock band accompanying the orchestra and choir.

Despite the mildly unsettling lyrics, it is quite catchy...  :brosius:

Yeah, Goldsmith's original version from the 70's Omen trilogy always gave me serious eebie geebies as a youngster but I gotta admit......this version rocks! Thanks AJFOne and crew!
What's disturbing to me is....I now notice Pooh has no pants and I'm getting a chubby. The devil twists my shit man! :blink:  :wth:  :brosius:  :D
