I had a name but they took it from me
I was the man that I wanted to be
I had a place where I lay my head
They burnt it to the ground and the sky turned red

I had a life and a place in the world
I had a sweet talkin' wife and a beautiful girl
I know I'm never gonna see 'em again
Gonna tear the world up until I have my revenge
They took my life but it isn't the end
They put me in the ground but I'm back from the dead

I'm the World Ender, baby, and I'm back from the grave
They can run for their lives but they cannot be saved
I'm the World Ender, baby, and I'm coming for them
They put me in the ground but I'm back from the dead

You'll hear me howl in the light of the moon
That's how you'll know that I'm coming for you
Gonna find you alone in the dark of night
When the World Ender comes better run for your life

I'll never bleed and I won't ever age
I'll never feel the embrace of the grave
The fair and the brave and the good must die
I seen the other side of living, I know heaven's a lie
I'll tear through the night, and I'll raise some hell
Cause I'm the World Ender, baby and I'm back from the dead

Lord knows I should be pushing daisies
I was 6 feet down, but something raised me up
Sent back for to lift my curse
I'm gonna me a taste of some chaos first
Untied, gonna get little wild
Go screaming through the dark like a demon child
Close your eyes now, the light is fading
and the noise in the night is gonna get a little louder, baby

I'm the World Ender, baby, and I'm back from the grave
They can run for their lives but they cannot be saved
I'm the World Ender, baby, and I'm coming for them
They put me in the ground but I'm back from the dead...

woa. 
WELL. Holy. F*$K.

That sent me running to find. MORE.

*edit*    

We're the Peaky F*$kin' Blinders!!
8 to 9 ... excellent!!
Basically this is a theme song for Bill Compton from the True Blood HBO Series.
I see what Bill did there. Nice.
Excellent, je ne connaissais pas mais  je vais aller voir ce que fait ce groupe, j'adore{#Dancingbanana_2}

Bill - great segue from Johnny Cash's The Man Comes Around into Lord Huron's The World Ender (love this band. This whole album is so well produced!!)
It's cause of song combo's like this that I keep listening to RP with great pleasure!

This almost sounds like the Jason Isbell "White Man's World" to me....huh....rated at 7 and not sure if it'll move up or not...Long Live RP!!
 
Lord Huron is moving up the ranks of new 'favorites thanks to RP' - 7 to 8 today....Long Live RP!!
Bill and Rebecca thanks, gracias, danke, merci, obrigado, bedankt for sending out all this great music to a lazy listener like me... you widened my world!
I don't give too many songs I haven't known for decades a 9 straight out of the gate. From first listen here on RP this has rocked my socks... and I don't even subscribe to the whole zombie fascination. That said, I sure hope this is part of the soundtrack for the new Jim Jarmusch ' The Dead Don't Die".

Yes.  Or reggae country.

Love this band! Especially this album Strange Trails.

Bill - the segway you just did from Johnny Cash - The Man Comes Around into The World Ender was BRILLIANT.

Keep em coming!

Nothing has yet to budge me from thinking that "Lord Huron" is a great... name for a band. This one's got some serious jukie jive to it though. Can dig it pretty much anytime.

Good call!
This should be in the soundtrack of a Tarantino flick.

Catchy
Just watched A Walk in the Woods...

Had no idea Lord Huron's music played such a major role.

I'd say a touch of Springsteen too.
Nice..
Looking forward to hearing this live next month when the band appear in Glasgow.

I feel more Brandon Lee Crow Spirit in this one

Brandon Lee in The Crow (1994)


Yes, awesome segue! When I hear this song I visualize tiki cups for some reason . . . .

The World Ender just makes me think of a Tarantino film. Lord Huron is my new favorite band. Have been streaming this record and their prior one quite a bit. 
Awesome transition Bill

Yeah, it's pretty cool.  It reminds me of a calmed-down version of The Cramps (if such a thing were possible), the way the singer does that hiccup and warble effect with his voice like Lux Interior did.

 
Never thought of it until I read your post, but yes you're right!

He certainly sounds similar to The Boss IMHO.  Excellent tune, thanks R&B!
hmmm cool interesting lyrics
Great song! One of many on this album. Love this band. They were great in concert at the House of Blues Boston last spring.
 Keep em high up on your rotation Bill.

Great Lyrics! {#Clap}
Just one more reason I listen to RP, getting exposed to new music and new artist! {#Bananajam}
Strange Trails is absolutely one of the best albums of 2015, and this isn't even the best cut on the album.

Very nice song! 
Great song from a good band with lots of potential. I saw them at the House of Blues in Boston this June and they were excellent.
Suggest you go see them if they come to your area. Play more of them for us, Bill.
Listen the wholE album, it is a good sounding honest new great band and lyricist, think they re gonna be bigger

Nice.

Not heard this before. Want to hear more soon. Excellent choice to follow Deep Purple.

LMAO!!!!!
  
Another RP find for me.  LOVE this album which is also available on vinyl.
   
Digging this one: it's on my current top played list. Some great studio video versions out there on YouTube

Strange Trails is a strong album.  A good maturation of the work that led to it.  Has really held up for me.

 

I'm pretty sure this is being used for a commercial. Heineken maybe?


Yeah.....I do like it!  
Wow
Love this one,
Thanks Bill
Kinda cool

I always get the impression Joe Strummer could kick in anytime singing the Get Down Moses chorus. But that might be just me.

Apart from that, if you've seen Pulp Fiction lately, you might have the beginning of an explanation.

 
Thanks Zoum... after thinking about it I'm pretty sure it was Lord Huron I heard.
Sounds like a great opening song for the thirth season of true detectives.
Me likey too! I want to dance, a bit inebriated, in a smokey room, wearing flats, like Umma. messy and gawky and sexy.
Heard this a bunch lately - Still not enough!!

I could swear there was a song playing last night that sounded very close to this one.  Any idea what it might have been?

Rather retro with the Stereo designation.  Songs cool also.
