    This song is not about zombies. There is no devouring of flesh.
    This is about a pestilence (synonym: plague) if you take it at face value.
    But do you really think it's only a detailed illustration of an ugly horror scene? I would venture to say most metal songs have a deeper message and are allegorical. The extended metaphor imo is found when you consider what the 'plague' upon the masses could be? Look at the description of how humanity is left in rotting decay, as ravenous animals, in despair, civilization turned to savagery. What could it be? Corruption? Ignorance? Living by false values and believing false information? It's of course open for interpretation by the loyal listeners and subject to our own opinions.
    Why do we listen to metal? Because it sums up through lyrics, and is in response to, the rotting, decaying minds and morals of the masses.
