Night Demon - "Empires Fall" (lyric video & behind the song)

Το single των Night Demon "Empires Fall"
Countdown... the end has become
Gatekeeper's final stand
Slow death was inevitable
Get out! Run while you can

Eternally bled for them all
Watching as empires fall

Sold out by the wicked machine
Build to destroy is the game
Revolution
No evolution
A master without a name

Eternally bled for them all
Awaiting the empire's fall

Turn off the noise
There's nothing left to say
Truth is the answer
The lies come out someday

Beat down
Left for dead
Rise up
Answer the call
Carry on with the strength to survive
Watching as empires fall
Surrounded as empires fall
Laughing as empires fall

Sabaton - "The Lion From The North" (The Great Tour)

Sabaton - "The Lion From The North"
A time of religion and war,
Legends tell the tale of a lion
This beast in the shape of a man,
With a dream to rule sea and land

And all those who stand in his way,
Will die, by God and victorious arms
With the righteous that follows him south,
Once more, set ashore, to war

Legends have taught, battles fought,
This lion has no fear at heart
Lion come forth, come from the north,
Come from the no-o-o-o-orth

Gustavus! Adolphus!
(Gustavus Adolphus go forth, libera, impera)
Libera et impera!
Acerbus et ingens!
(Acerbus et ingens leo, libera, impera)
Augusta per augusta

A storm over Europe unleashed,
Dawn of war, a trail of destruction
The power of Rome won’t prevail,
See the catholics shiver and shake

The future of warfare unveiled,
Showed the way, that we still walk today
Der Löwe aus Mitternacht comes,
Once more, he is here, for war

Stories of old, truth unfold,
Control over Europe he holds
Freedom he’ll bring,
Lion and king, lion and king

Mighty eagle rule alone
Liberator claim the throne
Lion from the northern land
Take the scepter from its hand
Oh, oh, oh you lion from the north,
Ooooooooh you lion from the north


Παρακολουθήστε το βίντεο των Sabaton με την "ζωντανή" απόδοση του τραγουδιού "The Lion From The North" (από την περιοδεία "The Great Tour"), το οποίο πρωτακούσαμε στον δίσκο των Σουηδών metallers "Carolus Rex" που κυκλοφόρησε τον Μάιο του 2012.

Billy Vass - "Alexander The Great" (single)
Those who do not bare thy name
Shall fall to thee oh Macedon
For there is a man of true greatness
Forbearing your light, imposing your might,
THE WILL OF THE GREEKS

To understand the laws of nature
Is to understand reality
For God is a law impartial
The overture to his destiny

He comes to save us all from Persia
Who comes as god, as word and as breath

King and leader for the Greeks
The righteous despot to the beasts
Bore the light of Macedon
Uniting Greece to Babylon

No one man can stop the one
In the name of Vergina’s Sun
In the shadow of his fate
ALEXANDER THE GREAT

I know of a boy full of fire
Who fulfilled his destiny
He turned his kingdom to an empire
A warrior a man a legacy

Steed Sword by side, mighty Smyrna
Mighty warrior from Macedon

King and leader for the Greeks
The righteous despot to the beasts
Bore the light of Macedon
Uniting Greece to Babylon

No one man can stop the one
In the name of Vergina’s Sun
In the shadow of his fate
ALEXANDER THE GREAT

Blind Guardian - "Nightfall" (Rockpalast 2016)

Ο δίσκος των Blind Guardian "Nightfall in Middle-Earth"
No sign of life did flicker
In floods of tears she cried
"All hope's lost it can't be undone
They're wasted and gone"

"Save me your speeches
I know (They blinded us all)
What you want
You will take it away from me
Take it and I know for sure
The light she once brought in
Is gone forevermore"

Like sorrowful seaguls they sang
"(We're) lost in the deep shades
The misty cloud brought
(A wailing when beauty was gone
Come take a look at the sky)
Monstrous it covered the shore
Fearful into the unknown"
Quietly it crept in new horror
Insanity reigned
And spilled the first blood
When the old king was slain

Nightfall
Quietly crept in and changed us all
Nightfall
Quietly crept in and changed us all
Nightfall
Immortal land lies down in agony

"How long shall we
Mourn in the dark
the bliss and the beauty
Will not return
Say farewell to sadness and grief
Though long and hard the road may be"
But even in silence I heard the words
"An oath we shall swear
By the name of the one
Until the world's end
It can't be broken"

Just wondering how
I can still hear these voices inside

The doom of the Noldor drew near

The words of a banished king
"I swear revenge"
Filled with anger aflamed our hearts
Full of hate full of pride
We screamed for revenge

"Vala he is that's what you said
Then your oath's been sworn in vain
(But) freely you came and
You freely shall depart
(So) never trust the northern winds
Never turn your back on friends"

"Oh I'm heir of the high lord!"
"You better don't trust him"
The enemy of mine
Isn't he of your kind and
Finally you may follow me
Farewell
He said

Back to where it all began

Intense - "Songs of a Broken Future" (album stream)

Οι Intense μας έρχονται από την Αγγλία. Δημιουργήθηκαν το μακρινό 1991, αλλά ουσιαστικά ξεκίνησαν να δισκογραφούν στην παρούσα χιλιετία (στα 90ς είχαν μόνο demos κι ένα ep). Χαρακτηρίζουν την μουσική τους κάπως έτσι: «the Darker Side of Power Metal, influenced by the UK/US side of things more than the European melodic side».

Εν έτει 2020 επέστρεψαν δισκογραφικά μετά από εννέα χρόνια. Ο διάδοχος του album "The Shape of Rage" (2011) και τέταρτος συνολικά δίσκος των Βρετανών metallers φέρει τον τίτλο "Songs of a Broken Future" και κυκλοφόρησε προ ημερών.

Δελτίο τύπου: «Intense hail from the UK and released their first EP back in 1997, it’s been nine years since their last release but at long last, the new album is ready to be unleashed on the Metal world. Vocalist Sean Hetherington and Guitarist Nick Palmer are founding members but the current line up has been together since 2004.

The listener might think at first contact that Intense would be another one of these countless formations that play in the style of the unbreakable NWOBHM. The blood of Saxon, Demon and all the legends is of course in their blood, but Intense are more influenced by the darker side of power metal like Iced Earth and Nevermore among others.

The fourth work of Intense represents a fresh cell treatment for British Heavy Metal, Power Metal with sense and reason which is rock sold on the achievements of its own history.»

Beyond the Black - "Golden Pariahs" (lyric video)

We'll be your last way out, when you're losing control
We'll be the spark of hope, when your story is told
You'll be saved by our hands
We'll be the ones still fighting, when you lay down your arms
And when the dust still settles, you know we'll be the ones
That will save all these lands

Black chains are falling again
And you will never ever know when you need a hand
Black rain is falling again
And you will never ever know when it's time to end

Pull us under, hear the thunder
Of our screams when we arise
We will stand tall
We'll embrace our fall
When you bury us, we are
Golden pariahs, golden pariahs...

You turn the earth to ash and the rivers to dust
You wouldn't change your mind and won't listen to us
You'll be saved by our hands
We won't forget what happened, when we told you the truth
We'll be the ones to bleed for all this time that you lose
We will save all these lands

Black chains are falling again
And you will never ever know when you need a hand
Black rain is falling again
And you will never ever know when it's time to end

Pull us under, hear the thunder
Of our screams when we arise
We will stand tall
We'll embrace our fall
When you bury us, we are
Golden pariahs

Pull us under, hear the thunder
Of our screams when we arise
We will stand tall
We'll embrace our fall
When you bury us, we are

Pull us under, hear the thunder
Of our screams when we arise
We will stand tall
We'll embrace our fall
When you bury us, we are
Golden pariahs, golden pariahs
Golden pariahs

Jennifer Haben: «With 2019 having been the biggest year in our career as a band so far, we were thrilled and anxious to get back to the studio and start writing again - not just to make up to the fast and amazing development that has happened in the band since our last album, but to pin this development down also musically for everyone to hear and see.

Hørizøns is unmistakably a Beyond the Black album, but with so many new facets and personality adding up to the classic Beyond the Black ID that make it a true band-album. For us this has definitely been a walk on the tightrope and we feel to have it accomplished to its fullest. Without beating around the bush, we can say that we're extremely proud and confident that Hørizøns is the best Beyond the Black album to date.»

Doro - "Breaking The Law" (Judas Priest cover - Rockpalast 2015)

There I was completely wasting, out of work and down
All inside it's so frustrating as I drift from town to town
Feel as though nobody cares if I live or die
So I might as well begin to put some action in my life

Breaking the law, breaking the law
Breaking the law, breaking the law
Breaking the law, breaking the law
Breaking the law, breaking the law

So much for the golden future, I can't even start
I've had every promise broken, there's anger in my heart
You don't know what it's like, you don't have a clue
If you did you'd find yourselves doing the same thing too

Breaking the law, breaking the law
Breaking the law, breaking the law
Breaking the law, breaking the law
Breaking the law, breaking the law

You don't know what it's like

Breaking the law, breaking the law
Breaking the law, breaking the law
Breaking the law, breaking the law
Breaking the law, breaking the law

Breaking the law

Circle Of Witches - "The Oracle" (lyric video)

Οι Circle Of Witches μας έρχονται από την Ιταλία. Δημιουργήθηκαν το 2004 από τον Mario Bove. Heavy / doom metal μπάντα με αναφερόμενες επιρροές τους Black Sabbath, Motorhead, Judas Priest, Grand Magus κι έχει κυκλοφορήσει τρεις "ολοκληρωμένους" δίσκους (συν ένα demo, ένα ep κι ένα dvd). Ο πλέον πρόσφατος φέρει τον τίτλο "Natural Born Sinners" και "βγήκε" τον περασμένο Μάιο...

Δελτίο τύπου: «The Oracle is the 3rd single track from Natural Born Sinners album. It’s the fourth song in the album list and it refers to Lucifer, the bringer of enlightenment in the men’s mind. The lyric underlines the similitude with Prometheus, the Titan in the ancient Greek mythology who stole the fire (i.e. the civilization, arts and crafts) giving it to mankind.

This arose Zeus’ fury against him. This is a song influenced by a doom metal sound, solemn, mid-tempo based, powerful and melodic. As Prometheus did, Lucifer gave dignity to man, inspiring the intellect with doubt, rationality, criticism and gave to mankind the task to recreate the world with the power of science and arts.

He was the very first allied of men against his father’s will. The lyrics show people gathering around the light of the Oracle. They understand how this light can set them free from the mud in which they're bound. Then the point of view shifts on Lucifer's voice as he declares his intents to the whole mankind.

The graphic was commissioned to the artist Francesco Saverio Ferrara, acclaimed international artist, skilled inker in love with Medieval times and fantasy stories, art director for Zhistorica. He shaped the concept of Lucifer's army raised to war against Heaven, all humans awakened by infernal trumpets. The animation was Luigi Guarinos' job, video editing and VFX design artist. He worked with some other Italian bands and some shorts.»

Circle of Witches: «Finally, we release the third single from "Natural Born Sinners" album. The song talks about Lucifer seen as Prometheus who brings the light of intellect to all mankind, giving them the power to reshape the creation with Arts and Science. Francesco Saverio Ferrara, skilled ink master, created a visual concept about Lucifer raising the army for the final battle against heaven. The animation is by Luigi Guarino, a talented VFX designer.»

Little trivia: «This song was composed the night Lemmy passed away. It has no relations with Motorhead themes and sounds, but it’s a way out from deep pain the band felt.»
