* PendulumOfDeath: "King of Terrors" is essentially a musical retelling and summary of The Pit and the Pendulum. Its second verse tackles this trope:
-->''Awake again - paralyzed\\
I'm shackled to this altar\\
sacrificed to their God\\
'Inch by Inch and Line by Line'\\
The Blade - descending lost in time\\
The fiends of Doom they call my name\\
I slip away...into black I fade away''
