The song is about the war between heaven and hell. The great deciding war to finally overthrow the balance between good and evil. The piece takes us from Earth, torn with wind and sin, to Hell itself, in the presence of the fallen angel, to the battle at the pearled gates, to the ethereal plains where civil war has erupted in heaven, down back to the surface of Earth where heaven and hell fight for survival, and the human race is eradicated in the process.
The piece is arranged in 5 movements.
1. Evoking the Four Winds
2. In The Presence of the Fallen One
3. Storming the Pearled Gates
4. Cataclysm on the Ethereal Plains
5. Battlefield Earth and the Extinction of the Human Race
