Judicator - "Let There Be Light" (video)

Only recently I failed, and yet I bore no punishment
So here's the tale, a battle lost - the fields beside Callinicum
The Persians swept into our lands, (and) on Easter Day we came in range
The men were firm, they wanted blood on this, a day meant for the Lord
But bound to fast, we tired quick
And so the Persians rolled us up

Awoken from the mist of haunted, dim-lit daydreams, I sharply snap back into focus
Our ally Hilderic in former Roman Africa has been imprisoned by (a) usurper

Ocean waves slap the hull
Sunbeams yonder pierce the clouds
Our destiny, the liberate our kinsmen who, as of now, face persecution

O stavros nika, oh let there be light!
I'll bear my cross of guilt and walk up to the mark
O stavros nika, oh let there be light
May I redeem myself from Callinicum

Our mission is holy, as the Vandals permit piracy and persecute the orthodox
This isn't vainglory, but rather just reconquest
So Gelimer, your time is nigh!

Ocean waves slap the hull
Sunbeams yonder pierce the clouds
On either side, my wife and godson stand proud
And back at home, our daughter waits

O stavros nika, oh let there be light
I'll bear my cross of shame and march on through the mire
O stavros nika, oh let there be light
May I redeem myself from Callinicum

Golden rays crack the clouds
Shimmering shoreline smiles

Oh my God, hear our prayers
Condescend out of mercy
Give us strength, give us courage
Let us fear you evermore

And my wife, Antonina
May she be ever be my side


Ο δίσκος των Judicator "Let There Be Nothing"
Κυκλοφορεί ήδη το νέο δισκογραφικό πόνημα των Judicator. Ο διάδοχος του album "The Last Emperor" και πέμπτος συνολικά "ολοκληρωμένος" δίσκος των Αμερικανών metallers τιτλοφορείται "Let There Be Nothing", "βγήκε" στα τέλη Ιουλίου κι αποτελεί μία από τις καλύτερες φετινές μουσικές προτάσεις. Αξίζει να σημειωθεί ότι ο Jordan Elcess έπιασε το μπάσο και τα τύμπανα ανέλαβε το νέο μέλος της μπάντας Ulises Hernandez.

Οι Judicator μας έρχονται από τις ΗΠΑ. Δημιουργήθηκαν προ οκταετίας κι αναφέρουν ως επιρροές συγκροτήματα όπως οι: Iron Maiden, Blind Guardian, Iron Savior, King Diamond, Mercyful Fate, Ayreon, Scanner, Triosphere, Crystal Viper, Running Wild, Agent Steel, Riot, Queen, Gamma Ray, Helloween, Fates Warning, Angel Dust, Overkill, Metallica, Hell, Queensryche, Dio, Black Sabbath, Candlemass.

Δελτίο τύπου: «Judicator is a revelation in the American power metal scene, gathering influences of raging teutonic power metal and classic heavy metal under an unmistakable melodic identity. Comprising eight tracks of complex and refreshingly dynamic songwriting, Let There Be Nothing is an unforgettable historical epic, commanding attention through white-knuckle storytelling and a pervasive, melancholic atmosphere.»
