Draconian - "Sorrow Of Sophia" (lyric video)

Ο δίσκος των Draconian "Under a Godless Veil"
Sophia is forgiven
The mother of our prison
Sophia is glistening

Always weeping for the world
She's apprehension
And her eyes torn by guilt
And we have these souls
And through her we are ascension
The grandeur of stillness
And all of her sadness

As lives cry out in torment
You are the everlasting sun
From the spark of countless eons
You are weeping for the world

And we sleep with the tides
Where we were lulled into matter
Holding the burden of time
And we wake in the midst
Of a world about to shatter
Shedding the burden of time

And from my window I saw the darkness ignite
And a goddess concealed in shadow
Seducing the stars and the flaming Gaia

I came here from the waters to invoke
The spirit within you
I came to remind you
But you are lost in a sea of dark

Sophia is forgiven
The mother of our prison
She's stuck in deafening winds
The whispering in the fields,
In the trees and stone
The sorrow and the guilt
It broke through the spheres
And fed the demons inside

And we sleep with the tides where
We were lulled into matter
Holding the burden of time
And we wake in the midst
Of a world about to shatter
Shedding the burden of time

Δισκογραφική επιστροφή για τους Draconian μετά από μία πενταετία. Ο διάδοχος του album "Sovran" (2015) και έβδομος συνολικά "ολοκληρωμένος" δίσκος των Σουηδών metallers φέρει τον τίτλο "Under a Godless Veil" κι αναμένεται να κυκλοφορήσει στα τέλη του δεύτερου φθινοπωρινού μήνα...

Anders Jacobsson: «Sorrow Of Sophia was the first lyric, and one of the first songs written for Under A Godless Veil. This was years ago now, and I remember I’d just finished a lecture on Gnostic cosmology by Terence McKenna.

He’d been speaking of the goddess Sophia’s ordeal and her story affected me on a very deep level. It’s sad yet heart-wrenchingly majestic bringing all of existence into it. I knew I had to do something with it for Draconian as I was already having a few of Johan’s new song-ideas.

This sparked what was later to become a whole album inspired by this story. It started here, with this song. “Sorrow Of Sophia” is a complex song about a complex spiritual being.

With it comes a diverse nature consisting of an initial minimalist soulful expression to feisty, heavy riffing with a harsh demonic formula to post-rock melancholia and symphonic soundscapes. Heike’s pure and crystalline vocals are beautifully entrenched holding the very spirit of the song.»
