Alright, alright, I'm a bitch and couldn't wait; I downloaded ONE track from Grandmasters...but damn...

Scientists look at the magnitude of devestation
But the strands of heavy metal seem to have no relation
But as always attention for large scale disasters
Of course the instrumental spins a hundred times faster
Many was taken, just at the price of a pawn
The collective loss has left a thousand to mourn

...could someone let me know if I've got this right? And maybe an interpretation?
