Erik Grönwall - 'Hallowed Be Thy Name' (Iron Maiden cover)

I’m waiting in my cold cell, when the bell begins to chime
Reflecting on my past life and it doesn’t have much time
‘Cause at 5 o’clock they take me to the gallows pole
The sands of time for me are running low, running low

When the priest comes to read me the last rites
Take a look through the bars at the last sights
Of a world that has gone very wrong for me

Can it be that there’s some sort of error
Hard to stop the surmounting terror
Is it really the end, not some crazy dream?

Somebody please tell me that I’m dreaming
It’s not easy to stop from screaming
But words escape me when I try to speak
Tears fall but why am I crying,
After all I’m not afraid of dying
Don’t I believe that there never is an end

As the guards march me out to the courtyard
Somebody cries from a cell “God be with you”,
If there’s a God then why has He let me go?
As I walk my life drifts before me,
Though the end is near I’m not sorry
Catch my soul, it’s willing to fly away

Mark my words, believe my soul lives on
Don’t worry now that I have gone,
Gone beyond to seek the truth, yeah, yeah
When you know that your time is close at hand
Maybe then you’ll begin to understand,
Life down here is just a strange illusion

Ye-ye-yeah! Hallowed be thy name
Ye-ye-yeah! Hallowed be thy name
Ye-e-e-e-eah!



Ο Erik Grönwall (Per Erik Magnus Grönwall το πλήρες ονοματεπώνυμό του) είναι Σουηδός τραγουδιστής. Έγινε γνωστός ως η φωνή των H.E.A.T. Παράλληλα τον ακούμε και στο ντεμπούτο των New Horizon που κυκλοφόρησε τον περασμένο Μάρτιο, ενώ έχει "βγάλει" και δύο προσωπικούς δίσκους. Επιπλέον είναι και ο νέος τραγουδιστής των Skid Row.

Hallowed Be Thy Name
Παράλληλα έχει και κανάλι στο YouTube, μέσω του οποίου αναρτά βίντεο διασκευάζοντας γνωστά τραγούδια. Ανάμεσά τους και ο ύμνος "Hallowed Be Thy Name" των Iron Maiden. Το τραγούδι το γνωρίσαμε στον ομότιτλο δίσκο των Βρετανών metallers "The Number of the Beast" που κυκλοφόρησε την άνοιξη του 1982, ενώ "βγήκε" και αυτόνομα ως single...

Erik Grönwall: «Hey rockers! As requested here's a cover of Iron Maiden - Hallowed Be Thy Name. A big shout out to the amazing musicians (mentioned below) who helped me perform this beast, especially since the majority of the song is instrumental... but hey... who need singers?»
