Devil May Cry Wiki

"Taste The Blood" (named "Battle-1 (Battle Music 1)" on the Original Soundtrack (Disc 1, Track 07) and "Out of My Way" on the Sound DVD Book (Track 03)) is a battle theme from Devil May Cry 3: Dante's Awakening, which is played during fights with lesser demons from Missions 2 to 13. In Mission 1, the battle theme that plays is "Dante's Office 7 Hells Battle" and in all remaining missions is "Divine Hate". After obtaining Nevan, Dante plays the first three verses of this song on it. The track was composed by Tetsuya Shibata, as well as written/performed by Shawn "Shootie HG" McPherson of Hostile Groove.


The flinch in your eye calls your bluff,
Feel free to die when you've had enough,
Useless cause is breaking your back,
Your life will end, when you attack,

Make your move,
Make your stand,
Make the win,
(ha..) Like you can,

See the war,
See me rule,
See the mirror,
You'll see a fool,

To take me out, you must fight like a man,
(To take me out you must fight like a man)
You've yet to prove that you can,
(You’ve yet to prove me that you can)
I see your might and it compares to something,
(I see your might and it compares to something)
That is, if something is nothing,
(That is if something is nothing)

Time to figure,
Time to sin,
Your time's done,
When you begin,

Live for suffer,
Live for revenge,
Now your life,
Comes to an end,

Taste the blood,
Taste your fate,
Swallow your pride,
With your hate,

Your last breath,
Your last stance,
The last of all,
In your command,

Knee's in the blood with your crying pleas,
Wade in your sorrow, bathe in your fear,
Clear the mind of the righteousness suffered,
Witness the moment of your failure's prosper!
