Las mejores baladas de Avantasia

Manda este post a Twitter

Con la reciente aparición del nuevo disco de Avantasia he vuelto a encontrar ganas para volver a escuchar a este gran grupo montado por Tobías Sammet (EdGuy) y que engloba lo mejorcito del power metal europeo. Estos días he vuelto a escuchar esas dos obras maestras que constituyen la discografía del grupo (hasta ahora): The Metal Opera Part I y Part II.

Para celebrar el lanzamiento del nuevo disco, que ya he tenido la oportunidad de escuchar y que comentaré en otro momento (porque tengo sentimientos contrapuestos respecto a las canciones que contiene XD), y dado que hoy el Tío Elwood se siente un poco tierno, os voy a poner las que yo considero las dos mejores baladas del grupo. ¡Disfrutadlas, viajeros dimensionales, y hasta el próximo post!

FAREWELL - THE METAL OPERA PART I


[Gabriel]
Days had come, winters had gone,
and we gamboled like siblings in Paradise.
I was your knight, holding you tight
as a brother when I saw your crying eyes.
Time went by and we had to say goodbye.

Staring up to the clouds above
Children - so little and sad.
Hoping the saints could help one day
Lead us together again.
Holding the key to the alley of dreams
still in hands.

Time telling me to say farewell
but I knew that I would fight hell
and I knew: We will
go for another time we can see,
for another time we'll be free,
for no more farewell.

[Anna]
Stepbrother tell me where have you been
when they brought me to this godforsaken place.
Sign of the cross - they took me away
for healing with herbs by the way of grace.
Now I wait for the day to feed the flames.

[Gabriel]
I have been caught in a cage of despair.
My heart as a monk's cell so empty and bare.
But no holy water can make me
forget you again...

Time telling me to say farewell
but I knew that I would fight hell
and I knew: We will
go for another time we can see,
for another time we'll be free,
for no more farewell.

[Lugaid]
No farewell could be the last one.
If you long to meet again...



ANYWHERE - THE METAL OPERA PART II

I remember it was long ago
But when I think of her I fell it grow
Something begs me to come home again
Something I can hardly stand

But I'm to defy, I have to ignore her cry
I don't know what to do, I'm missing you so bad

Waiting for tomorrow, for a little ray of light
Waiting for tomorrow just to see your smile again
Take away my sorrow from a blistered heart of mine
Where are you now if you are there anywhere

Please forgive me for how I decide
But before I can come with rapid strides
Don't expect you'll have to understand
Jakob needs my helping hand

First I have to go one out of two ways
Wich both are wrong and I'm to go
So afraid, so ashamed
So deranged - but I know...

Waiting for tomorrow, for a little ray of light
Waiting for tomorrow just to see your smile again
Take away my sorrow from a blistered heart of mine
Where are you now if you are there anywhere

[Solo: Henjo Richter]

Waiting for tomorrow, for a little ray of light...
I can't wait for you - Are you there - anywhere
