Evangelist - "Perceval" (audio)

Το ep των Evangelist "Ad Mortem Festinamus"
'We are brothers, Perceval,
Your brethren would not lead you wrong.
All that is lost will be restored.
All that is dead will live again'


-The Book of The Grail-

The trees were in bloom and leaves in blossom
The crooning birds were welcoming the dawn
Forsaken Forest rising from night’s bottom
Was welcoming Widow’s Lady only son

Fierce racket cracks twitter
Among the trees steel glitters
Boy freezes in silence
His javelins ripe for violence

Sparkling mail and shining shields
Helmets, spears he’d never seen
White and red, blue and gold
“These are Angels as my mother told!”

Rise again - the sword of the Lake
The King and Land are one
It’s the secret of the Grail

He rides on the dragon's breath
To the realms where no man dares
To go.
A quest to find what we once lost.

To the castle of the Grail
Where the Wounded King awaits
the knight.
It's the tale of Perceval.

Woods fell into ruin, sweet wine turned dry
Rich fronds and petals wither, slowly cower
All feathered creatures are no more in the sky
Only the grail can restore the leaf and flower

For ten years and one day
From his path he did not stray
To the ends of within
Pursuance of the land of dreams

Many pleasures, cups to drink
Take him quickly to the tree!
Never falter, tame the pain!
You’re the last of us, try again!

Rise again - the sword of the Lake
The King and Land are one
It’s the secret of the Grail

He rides on the dragon's breath
To the realms where no man dares
To go.
A quest to find what we once lost.

To the castle of the Grail
Where the Wounded King awaits
the knight.
It's the tale of Perceval.


Ep έξι τραγουδιών είναι η μουσική πρόταση των Evangelist για το 2020. Φέρει τον τίτλο "Ad Mortem Festinamus" κι έχει προγραμματισθεί να κυκλοφορήσει στα μέσα του επόμενου μήνα.

Το εναρκτήριο τραγούδι (το οποίο σας παρουσιάζουμε σήμερα) αφορά τον Πέρσιβαλ (ή Πέρσεβαλ ή Πάρσιφαλ κατά τον Βάγκνερ και Πάρτσιφαλ σύμφωνα με το επικό ποίημα του Βόλφραμ φον Έσενμπαχ).

Ήταν ένας από τους Ιππότες της Στρογγυλής Τραπέζης του βασιλιά Αρθούρου κι ένας από τους κεντρικούς χαρακτήρες στην αναζήτηση του Αγίου Δισκοπότηρου. Μαζί με τον Σερ Μπορς, συνόδευσε τον Γκάλαχαντ στην αναζήτησή του έως και την ολοκλήρωση της αποστολής τους...

Δελτίο τύπου: «In times of doom, Evangelist returns with songs of death and destruction. The band was first started in the spring of 2008, with inspiration mainly coming from the obscure epic metal scene in the US, epic doom metal pioneers and metal classics in general.

Major lyrical inspiration came from the twisted minds of R.E. Howard, H.P. Lovecraft, history, religion and spirituality of the ages gone by. Their debut album, In Partibus Infidelium, was recorded between 2009 and 2011 and released in June 2011 by PsycheDOOMelic Records.

Their sophomore record, Doominicanes, was recorded between 2012 and 2013 and released in May 2013 by Doomentia Records. In October 2014, a collaboration with Capilla Ardiente troops was revealed in the form of the infamous Capilla Ardiente / Evangelist 12” split on which Evangelist delivered their own version of Mayhem's classic “Freezing Moon”.

In December 2018, after a short hiatus, their third album, Deus Vult, was released by Nine Records. Almost one year later, recording sessions began on two new songs, as well as a rendition of one of Manilla Road's finest tracks, Mystification.

These three songs will be paired with another three tracks recorded during the Deus Vult recording sessions, and will ultimately be released as an EP, entitled Ad Mortem Festinamus. It will be released on both CD and vinyl by Nine Records in December 2020.»
