"Now, repent."
―Nemesis Sudou[src]


The Muzzle of Nemesis is a song released by Akuno-P on August 8, 2014. It is part of the Seven Deadly Sins Series, depicting Wrath, and was included in an album with the same name.

Plot

The song begins with Nemesis Sudou approaching a man and pointing her gun at him. She thinks of her mother as she recalls all the events that led to her seeking revenge against the man. Saying goodbye to "Mr. Pere Noel", she offers him the choice of dying by the fire burning the house or a gunshot. Nemesis then proposes he give back his entire fortune to be spared, only for the man, Gallerian Marlon, to snap that he wouldn't do so. Thinking back on her childhood, Nemesis notices the man comforting his Doll and declares him mad, remarking on how the man's true daughter died long ago. Bidding her father farewell, she wonders why her mother loved such a man as she prepares to shoot him.

Composition

The song utilizes GUMI's voicebank for the VOCALOID2 engine. Piano, violin, flute, bass guitar, and synthesizers are used for the instrumental. The opening instrumental begins at 0.04, accompanied by the opening verse by 0.13. At 0.20, the instrumental gains more accompaniment, followed by an instrumental break. The break finishes at 0.42, to prepare for the first verse, beginning at 0.50. The verse shifts into the first pre-chorus, lasting until 1.27. The first chorus follows briefly until 1.45, preceding the second verse.

By 1.59, the second pre-chorus begins, and shifts into the second chorus at 2.23, lasting until 2.37. An instrumental break begins, lasting until 2.53. The third verse begins immediately after, turning into the third pre-chorus at 3.09. At 3.31, the music halts for a moment, then resumes into the third chorus by 3.33. Afterwards, another instrumental break plays until 3.55, with the music shifting into the bridge. A variation of the opening instrumental begins at 4.25, and continues until 4.50, the song's end.

Lyrics

罪深き男よ
さあ 懺悔なさい

ねえ母さん 私ね 今
人に銃口を向けているの
たくさんの人を陥れて
私腹を肥やした悪い奴よ

この男のために私は
愛した人さえその手にかけた
次に自分自身も撃ったけれど
死ぬことはできなかった

復讐の時は来たれり
さあ 懺悔なさい

Hello and good-bye『Mr.Pere Noel』
家にも火を付けたわ どちらか選びなさい
眉間を撃ち抜かれるか
この業火の中 燃え尽きるかを

ねえ母さん どんな悪党にも
贖罪のチャンスは与えるべきでしょ?

だからね私 彼にこう言ったの
「あなたの財産を手放しなさい
全てを奪った人に返せば命だけなら助けてあげる」

彼は答えた
「私の財産 貴様なんぞには 決して渡さない」

どうしようもないクズね
やっぱり懺悔なさい

Hello and good-bye『Master Of The Court』
欲に溺れきった悪徳裁判官
人々と私の怒りをその身に浴びて
眠りなさい

ねえ母さん あなたは私を
女手一つで育ててくれた
生まれたのは森の廃屋
父の顔などしらなかった

ねえ母さん 父さんはもう
駄目みたいだよ 狂っているわ
人形を義姉(ねえ)さんだと思い込んでいる
あの人はもうとっくに
暗い海底 沈んでいった
もう娘はこの私一人だけなのに

ねえ父さん 私を見てよ
私の事も見てよ

Hello and good-bye・・・good-bye 『My Father』
殺し屋の元締 悪徳裁判官
ねえ母さん どうしてあなたはこんな人を
愛したの?

これで本当に終わりよ
全てを最後にしましょう

罪深き悪の物語よ
さようなら

さようなら
愛しい人
憎んだ人

罪深き男よ
さあ 懺悔なさい

Sinful man
Now, repent

Hey Mother, I'm now
Pointing my muzzle at this person
This vile man's deceived many people,
Abusing his position for personal profit

For the sake of this man,
I even destroyed the one I loved with these hands
I then shot myself afterward but
I couldn't make myself die

The time for my revenge has come
Now, repent

Hello and good-bye Mr. Pere Noel
With your house set aflame as well, choose either
A shot to the forehead
Or burning in these hellfires

Hey Mother, any scoundrel
Should be given the chance to atone, right?
So I said to him:
“Relinquish your fortune”
“If you return everything you stole from the people, your life will be spared”

He answered:
“I will never hand over my fortune to you”

It can't be helped, you trash
As I thought, repent

Hello and good-bye Master of the Court
Corrupt judge consumed by greed
Bathe in mine and the people's wrath
Die

Hey Mother, you're
The woman who raised me herself
Born in an abandoned house in the forest,
I didn't know the face of my father

Hey Mother, Father's already
Beyond help; he's gone mad
He's convinced a doll is Half-Sister
That person has already, long ago,
Sunk to the bottom of the ocean
His only daughter is me now and yet

Hey Father, look at me
Look at me too

Hello and good-bye… good-bye my Father
Boss of a hitman, corrupt judge
Hey Mother, why did you ever love
This person?

This is really the end
Let's finally end it all

This story of sinful evil
Good-bye

Good-bye
Loved one,
Hated one

Sinful man
Now, repent

Trivia

Conceptualization and Origin

  • Nemesis is the goddess of vengeance in Greek mythology.
  • The term "muzzle" means gun point, referring to the open end of a firearm's barrel; interestingly, the term "gunpoint" means to threaten someone with a gun.
  • The song's English title, "Satan's Revenge", is a reference to Satan, the patron demon of Wrath; it also refers to Nemesis' act of getting revenge on Gallerian, as portrayed in the song.
  • When first concepting the song, mothy had planned for the story to portray the entire life of its central character, Nemesis, but realized later on that the song would be too large; he also admitted the issue caused a delay in the song's release schedule.[1]
  • While commenting on the song's creation, mothy stated that it was a process of trial and error and that the final song was nothing like the initial version, having eventually decided it was too bloated and cut down on its content.[2]
  • Prior to the song's announcement, mothy posted a poem entitled "Nemesis" with allusions seemingly reflecting characters, places, or events in the Evillious Chronicles; at the end of the poem, mothy stated it was a late night work and didn't have any meaning.[3]
  • On twitter, mothy posted a twit sound titled "the muzzle of a gun" for a period of time, featuring an instrumental sample for a future song;[4] despite the name similarity, the sample itself used a different instrumental from The Muzzle of Nemesis.
  • The revolver used in the song PV is based on the design of a Colt Python revolver.[5]

Curiosities

  • At the beginning of the song PV, a timeline involving the birth of Hänsel and Gretel, the Levianta Catastrophe, and all the major events involving the Seven Deadly Sins leading up to the song is rushed through.
  • Like the other songs in the Seven Deadly Sins Series, the song begins with the phrase "さあ" (Saa) after the singer addresses the "sinful man" following the timeline sequence.
  • Towards the climax of the song PV,  the screen flashes phrases and images related to other songs; the phrases include "And Then the Girl Went Mad", "Abandoned" twice, "The Last Revolver", "Judgment of Corruption", and "Master of the Hellish Yard". 
  • Similar to the Judgment of Corruption PV, after Ma appears, a tunnel is being fallen through towards the end, with five colored rings along the tunnels of the walls; each ring is the color of the Deadly Sin representing it, excluding greed and wrath, and appears in the song series' chronological order.
  • During the ending instrumental in the song PV, illustrations for each of the other six characters featured in their representative song in the series appear in reverse chronologicial order; afterwards, all six line up with the six shots in Nemesis' gun cylinder that's pointed at the viewer before fading away.
  • The illustration for Gallerian in particular is lined up with the revolver's gun barrel as well; the moment after the illustration fades away, the revolver's barrel flashes the screen to white, as if being fired.
  • Humorously, mothy admitted he had uploaded the song on August 8th, the eighth day of the eighth month of the year, by pure coincidence, not noticing the date until shortly before he posted it;[6] Nemesis, the song's central character, happens to have the codename "Eight".
