How did you do on the clues we gave you last week regarding our latest single? Let's look at the clues again, and we'll point out the "clues within the clue":
This song recounts the Ten Plagues in order from Pharaoh's perspective, as he shrugs off each warning God sends his way. Unfortunately, that's a universal symptom among mankind — a problem we've yet to iron out in this wicked world. Filled with megalomania, Pharaoh thought he was the lord of this world and master of the Israelites, but in reality, he was a pawn. God said, "But I have raised you up for this very purpose, that I might show you my power and that my name might be proclaimed in all the earth" (Exodus 9:16). Even Pharaoh's wizards couldn't find a way to ward off the plagues, and eventually the hand of doom had struck down all of the firstborn of Egypt.
The clue for song #1 referenced seven song titles, one album title, and one band member:
Symptom of the Universe
Master of Reality
Hand of Doom
Bill Ward (drummer)
Welcome to the Christian parody biz. It's time to get illuminated on this new style, so check it out. Say hello to all your nasty critics. It's a sure shot you'll face triple trouble -- from anti-rock preachers, anti-Christian secularists, and anti-parody snobs who think rhyming with the original is just stealing somebody's song. Something's got to give. Will it be you?
The clue for song #2 included seven song titles, one album title, and one bonus clue:
Time to Get Ill
The New Style
Ch-check It Out
Rhyming and Stealing
Something's Got to Give
Bonus: Since the antichrist is also called "the beast" in Revelation, the word anti-Christian could allude to "Beastie."
