Twilight Force - 'Highlands of the Elder Dragon' (official audio)

A long time ago, in a land far away
An adventurous young man had heard of a legend
A legend of a hidden dragon kingdom
Where life was eternal

I have heard of the highlands
Where the Elder Dragon dwells
An enchanted place up high in the sky
It's a home of eternal life
Where no man has ever gone
It's a place where dragons live eternally
I must go there to find еternal life
I want to live forеvermore
And to be free from my mortal destiny
Is there a way to find the highlands?

You must find the keys and magic
To unlock the gate to immortality
But beware the dragons,
They will guard their sacred lands

I will cross the seas
And ride across the plains
Fly over mountains
To find the secret keys and magic
To unlock the gate

Somehow, somewhere
I will live forever
Maybe someday, I'll get there
I will find my way

Take me far away
To the Highlands of the Elder Dragon
Fly me far away
To the magic kingdom of the Elder Dragon
I'll find my way

In a cold dark empty cavern
I found an Elder Scroll
It revealed the location of the keys
One was hidden in the ruins of the dwarves
And one was buried in the Twilight Forge
But where, where was the last key?

Now, what shall I do?
Hope is lost, I will never find
The last key to the secret dragon realm
But I will not give up
And I know my fate is out there, somewhere

I rode so far and wide
Across the lands and plains
To seal my fate and find the three keys
Two were right where the scroll told me to search
But the third key was still to be found

Now I am old and weak
I have searched all my life
But now I realise my time was wasted
This is my last breath
And I never found the third key
But what is that, a light?
My eternal life is there
The Elder Dragon is here

The years passed, kings and queens came and went
And empires flourished as well as crumbled
But the legend of the Highlands
Of the Elder Dragon remained a mystery

Take me far away
To the Highlands of the Elder Dragon
Fly me far away
To the Highlands of the Elder
The Highlands of the Elder Dragon
But now
I am home

Twilight Force - 'At the Heart of Wintervale'
Τιτλοφορείται "At the Heart of Wintervale" και αποτελεί το νέο δισκογραφικό πόνημα των Twilight Force, το οποίο κυκλοφόρησε προ ημερών με την Σουηδική μπάντα να μας λέει σχετικά:

«After what feels like aeons, we can finally proudly unveil the details of our fourth opus. At the Heart of Wintervale. At the Heart of Wintervale is set to be unleashed on January 20th.

While the dwarven forges are busy assembling the physical manifestations of the album, we can all use some time to brush up on old incantations, polish dusty daggers, and re-stir murky potions - for this glorious quest will be upon us before we know it, and for that we must be prepared!

The breathtaking and dramatic cover artwork is once again created by the brilliantly skilled Kerem Beyit. It depicts the tale told in the title track of the album - where an evil curse is broken, and an ancient dragon may finally roam the realms again, free and unfettered!»

Οι Twilight Force μας έρχονται από την Σκανδιναβία (Σουηδία). Δημιουργήθηκαν πριν από μία ενδεκάδα έτη και χαρακτηρίζουν την μουσική τους ως "adventure metal". Έχουν κυκλοφορήσει τέσσερα full length albums και επτά singles...

Δελτίο τύπου: «The legend of Twilight Force began to form in the year 2007 of the Human Era. It was the result of a yearning to bring back the golden age of Epic Symphonic Power Metal. But Twilight Force soon became an entity of its own, evolving and elevating the genre to new heights and sounds.

By fusing triumphant melodies with rich orchestral arrangements and swift performances, Twilight Force creates an intense and immersive experience. Transporting the listener to a magic realm filled with wonder, heroic tales and mesmerising tales from the mythical world known as The Twilight Kingdoms.

Using their vast experience from previous musical endeavours, their classical training, and technical proficiency, Twilight Force spawned the first ever Adventure Metal album in 2014 H.E. - Tales of Ancient Prophecies.

Two more critically acclaimed albums followed in its wake, Heroes of Mighty Magic (2016), and Dawn of the Dragonstar (2019), with the fourth opus At the Heart of Wintervale set for release on January 20th, 2023 on Nuclear Blast Records. At the Heart of Wintervale will be released on CD, Digibook, and Vinyl.

The limited Digibook edition will also include three bonus tracks. The first one is a song, many of the band's loyal knights may somewhat recognize; it is an acoustic blend of some of the older works, featuring an entrancing vocal performance and guitar work by Twilight Force's very own wood elf Aerendir.

The second and third bonus tracks are orchestral versions of two songs from the album, where fans will have the opportunity to experience a different soundscape, and perhaps discover new exciting elements and intricacies never discerned before. With the band embarking on a headlining tour through Europe and UK on time with the album’s release, Twilight Force look immensely forward to continue their epic tale.»
