Operation Ground and Pound is the fourth track of Dragonforce's Inhuman Rampage album. The song was the second music video to be released by Dragonforce, although as with their previous single, Through the Fire and Flames (TTFAF), the song is edited to reduce the running time to around 5 minutes compared to the album version of nearly 8 minutes.

On August 21, 2008 it was made available as a download to play on Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock alongside, Revolution Deathsquad and Heroes of Our Time. Operation Ground and Pound was written by ZP Theart and Sam Totman

Music VideoEdit

The music video of Operation Ground and Pound shows Dragonforce playing on an alien world as large space battleships fly overhead pounding the ground with lightning bolts (some shots are reminiscent of the cover of the previous album, Sonic Firestorm). It starts with the microphone flying towards Theart when the guitar starts. Similar to the music video of [[Through the Fire and Flames|TTFAF), his eyes do not open until the song starts. During the duet, Sam Totman and Herman Li are shown playing a guitar game on a PC Engine while they duel on the screen (Herman being the winner). In one shot during the duet, ZP Theart can be seen drinking what appears to be coffee from a styrofoam cup in front of a green screen, looking bored and shrugging. At the end, it goes back to the entire band playing, during which special effects continue, with the battleships crashing to the ground. Just before the end, some portions are shown backwards and the planet's sky changes from being orange to blue and the scene becomes more peaceful.

LyricsEdit

(*Note: The lyrics for both the album version and music video of the song are exactly the same)

Smashing through the boundaries

Storming through the burning fields

Stand before the Evil One, on towards the morning sun

Falling under skies of pain


Soldiers searching endlessly

Crashing over seven seas

Torture in the winter skies, riding over plains of ice

Shadows in the fields of the slain


Crashing steel and raging fury

Smash the cross, destroy the army

Crush the legions of the twilight

Templars of steel will burn


Cry far away, as we reach for the day

Passing our way through the punishment and the pain

Reach for the world, as the sky begins to fall

Rising through the darkened ashes praying that I'll see you all


Far away, will our eyes now see the day

For today, the everlasting eternal sun

Washed away the dreams of a brighter day

Forever hold the dream inside

The chance to fight another fight

The breaking hearts that stand for all our lives

Live tonight


Woh-oh-oh-oh!

Woh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh!


Watch you die, I watch you die inside

While fear controls your life

Then reject this animosity

That kills so many minds

We feel the power deep within

The fear you hold inside

Just to find the reason for the treason

Now you will be mine


Screams of pain and death descending

Rise again from hell defending

Burn their hearts within the fire

Warriors of light will be slain


Rise through the pain, like the sun will rise again

Day after day but the memories never change

Stand before the storm, as the last horizon falls

Blinded by the vision and the innocence of our souls


Far away, will our eyes now see the day

For today, the everlasting eternal sun

Washed away the dreams of a brighter day

Forever hold the dream inside

The chance to fight another fight

The breaking hearts that stand for all our lives

Live tonight


Woh-oh-oh-oh!

Woh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh!


Far away, will our eyes now see the day

For today the everlasting eternal sun

Washed away the dreams of a brighter day

Forever hold the dream inside

The chance to fight another fight

The breaking hearts that stand for all our lives

Live tonight


Woh-oh-oh-oh!

Woh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh!

Woh! Woh!
