Death the Leveller - "So They May Face The Rising Sun" (audio)

The glories of our birth and state
Are shadows, not substantial things;
There is no armour against fate:
Death lays his icy hands on kings;
Sceptre and crown
Must tumble down,
And in the dust be equal made
With the poor crooked scythe and spade.

Some men with swords reap the field,
And plant fresh laurels where they kill;
But their strong nerves at last must yield;
They tame but one another still:
Early or late
They stoop to fate,
And must give up their murmuring breath,
When they, pale captives, creep to death.

The garlands wither on your brow,
Then boast no more your mighty deeds;
Upon death's purple altar now,
See where the victor victim bleeds:
All heads must come
To the cold tomb,
Only the actions of the just
Smell sweet and blossom in the dust.


Το άνωθεν ποίημα του Βρετανού λογοτέχνη / ποιητή James Shirley ("Death the Leveller") αποτέλεσε την έμπνευση για το όνομα της Ιρλανδέζικης μπάντας, η οποία δημιουργήθηκε προ τετραετίας από τρία μέλη (εκ των τεσσάρων) των Mael Mórdha που βρίσκονται σε κατάσταση αναμονής τα τελευταία χρόνια. Οι Death the Leveller μας παρουσιάζονται κάπως έτσι: «new Doom metal band from Dublin featuring members from Mael Mórdha and Cursed Earth». Ο δεύτερος δίσκος τους είναι προ των πυλών. Φέρει τον τίτλο "II" (μαντέψτε τον τίτλο του πρώτου) κι αναμένεται στα μέσα Μαρτίου...
