Grave Digger - "Thousand Tears" (feat. Noora Louhimo)

Thousand tears running down my skin
If I see you bear the cross of our human sins
Season come and go but my hope still stays
I believe you will return to the throne one day

Your screams sound far across the land
Let me take you by your hand

Thousand tears makes me cry
Your light shines like a star in the sky
Now you're gone between dark and dawn
Your legend will live forevermore
Your legend will live forevermore

My tears flow like a river of blood
Down in the valley my soul is covered with mud
In my last hours I hear voices calling my name
My death won't be in vain, I die for Scotland's fame

My day has come, I carry out my fate
In my heart there's no more hate

Thousand tears makes me cry
Your light shines like a star in the sky
Now you're gone between dark and dawn
Your legend will live forevermore
Your legend will live forevermore

Thousand tears makes me cry
Your light shines like a star in the sky
Now you're gone between dark and dawn
Your legend will live forevermore
Your legend will live forevermore


Το καλοκαίρι του 1996 κυκλοφορούσε το album "Tunes of War", το οποίο ουσιαστικά έβαλε τους Grave Digger στους heavy metal χάρτες (από άποψη αναγνωρισιμότητας εννοώ, γιατί καλλιτεχνικά είχε προηγηθεί το πολύ καλό "Heart of Darkness"). 24 έτη αργότερα οι Γερμανοί metallers ξαναφορούν τα κιλτ και επιστρέφουν στην Σκωτσέζικη κουλτούρα - θεματολογία. Το νέο τους δισκογραφικό πόνημα τιτλοφορείται "Fields of Blood" κι αναμένεται στα τέλη Μαΐου...

Δελτίο τύπου: «"Thousand Tears" features the incomparable voice of Noora of Battle Beast, refining the most touching metal ballad of the year in a duet with Chris Boltendahl! An unforgetable moment of Grave Digger 's apart from that heavy new album Fields Of Blood, and escapes the listener into a melancholic dream, sweetened with a high class vocal melange and an outstanding instrumental arrangement.»

Chris Boltendahl: «With Thousand Tears we pay homage to the unforgettable Queen of Scotland Mary Staurt ... Noora from Battle Beast gives Queen Mary an incredible, warm and fragile atmosphere through her voice which at the end of the song turns into pure anger and despair.We couldn't have found a better voice for this song. We are proud to present THOUSAND TEARS feat. Noora Louhimo. One of the best ballads Grave Digger has ever written, maybe the best of our entire career.»

Noora Louhimo: «It’s an honour to do a collaboration with the legendary Grave Digger and I’m very intrigued about the Scottish themed songs they’ve done. Now I will also be part of their historical song ”Thousand Tears” as the voice of Queen Mary. I hope all listeners can hear the big emotions and get a little climpse of her story as one of most Powerful woman that lived in her time.»

  2. Οι Digger και η φωνάρα των Battle Beast μαζί; Τα σπάνε!

    1. Παρότι η πρόταση των Battle Beast δεν συγκαταλέγεται στις μουσικές μου προτιμήσεις οφείλω να ομολογήσω ότι το τραγούδι "No More Hollywood Endings" ήταν από τα μεγαλύτερα περσινά μου κολλήματα!
