Mortification is an Australian Christian extreme metal band which was formed in 1987 as a heavy metal group, Lightforce, by mainstay Steve Rowe on bass guitar and vocals. By 1990, in the Melbourne suburb of Moorabbin, they were renamed as Mortification with the line-up of Rowe, Michael Carlisle on guitar and Jayson Sherlock on drums. Mortification has released over twenty albums and several videos on major record labels such as Nuclear Blast. As one of the earliest internationally successful Christian death metal bands from Australia, they served as an inspiration for later similar groups. more »


 The easy, fast & fun way to learn how to sing:

Die for your faith, 
Die for your faith, 
Die for your faith, 
Die for what you believe in

[Verse 1]
Small group in Cambodia, 
Gather in the mud brick room,
Teachers shares The Word, 
Then they kneed and pray,
Communist soldiers storm the door, 
Throw the Bible to the floor,
Spit upon this book 
Or you will breath your last
One by one they spit and cry
They're in fear of their lives
A young girl wipes her Jesus dry
Shot in the head she dies.

[Chorus repeat]
[Verse 2]
Evil man killing the Christians
Satan gives him the false abuse,
But as he reads The Bible truth,
He converts to the Christian Faith,
Taken to the evil leaders, he is a disgrace
Thrown into a slime filled pit,
Eaten by rats for his new Faith.

[Chorus repeat]
[Verse 3]
Preaching man in china,
Taken from his family home,
Thrown into a prison cell,
For no criminal reason,
Rotting and tortured in his fate,
He will not deny his Faith,
He knows the truth of Christian ways,
No brutal force will make him change.

[Chorus repeat]
