Epico Mix 2008

Para animar el veranito, que ya lleva más de la mitad, aquí pongo algunos temas épico-épicos-epicosos para animar nuestros corazones bárbaros y llenarnos de gloria eterna y eso.

Comenzemos con una de las baladas más poderosas y épicas de estos épicos germanos tan grandiosos que son Blind Guardian, y nada mejor que con una canción sobre el incomparable mundo de Tolkien.

THORN - BLIND GUARDIAN

A black swan
Is born that night
The misty pond
(Has) got a new king
Got a new king
So what can we do
With our lives
When it all begins
It's hard and
It's cruel
Will grace die in pain?
Will light ever rise again?

I'm trapped in darkness
Still I reach out for the stars
I'm moving in silence
I leave it all far behind

chorus:
Oh at dawn
I'll face the edge of thorns
Oh at dawn
I'll pray at the edge of thorns
Oh at dawn
I'll face the edge of thorns

Let us march on
To the fields of sacrifice
(I'm) wondering why
I'll carry on
Will I betray myself
To rise

In the silence
It's time to explain
(And)
Search for truth in lies
Useful lies
Needless love's damned

What can we do with our lives
When it all begins

chorus

Come follow me
And you will see
How it will be
When all the pain is gone away

chorus

Let us march on
Though there's no hope at our side
Let us be brave
Though by glory we are denied
But
Don't you think
It's time for us
To bring to an end
Come play the song of death
The wisdom in us both
Will make it
Special guaranteed
Play the song of death

I'm lost in the depths of his eyes
I can't flee
Inner pain caused insanity
It's deep within
The fear and the hunger
Enslaved and denied
By my love and my enemies
I'm the illgotten son



Algunos Maneles del mundo quizás piensen que esto ha sido poco épico... Bueno, aún no hemos acabado. Desde las tierras de Odín nos vamos a la clásica (y no menos épica) Italia, nuestros vecinillos con su spaguetti-metal: por supuesto, si hablo de speed-metal y de Italia, no puedo hablar sino de Rhapsody (sin Fire, por favor).

ETERNAL GLORY - RHAPSODY

Echoes of terror in this old land
I see the result of their quest
Skulls of old heroes lie everywhere
in this mystical place
Dust in their eyes, dust on my pride
in this infinite journey to the ancient sword

I can hear their lament between these rocks
the whisper of an angry ghost
he speaks for them all trapped in this lost world
I am their very last hope
to ride from hell free once again
to break the chains from a bloody past for my victory

Eternal glory ride fast to me
pound in my heart for the Algalord kings
Eternal glory spread your wide wings
fly and forever lead my holy steel

I'll fight, I'll cry for your silence your name
You'll live through me I will end all your pain
for the swan in the lake the bird on the tree
the peace for my beloved lands
The black king is near and Algalord calls
so heroes of the lost valley raise all your voice

Eternal glory ride fast to me
pound in my heart for the Algalord kings
Eternal glory spread your wide wings
fly and forever lead my holy steel



¿Aún pensáis que es poco? Así que os va lo duro, ¿eh? Hmmm bueno antes de pasar a cosas más jevis, me permitiréis poner antes un producto patrio, no podría ser menos. Y, como no, porque soy así de auto-ego-maníaco-ególatra, pues voy a poner la canción que me dedicó Warcry (sniff sniff quina petriemoció) Aunque la canción no me deja en muy buen lugar, pero da igual... mejor mala publicidad que ninguna :P

ALEJANDRO - WARCRY


Que duro fue todo lo alcanzado lo conquistado
luche asta el fin para darte otra gran victoria
fui general como tantos otros dispuesto a todo
confie en mi rey.

Y ahora, tras tantas batallas me acusas de traicion
asi es como me pagas mi lealtad
me desprecias, me degradas, me condenas sin perdon
que los dioses te quieran perdonar
no lo hare yo.

Quien me iba a decir lo que iba a pasar
quien me iba a decir que ibasa cambiar
dime cuando tu cambiaste el bien por el mal

Alejandro, medio mundo conquisto
nadie duda de su genio y su valor
pero junto a el habia muchos mas...
Ningun hombre solo puede remar
ni un dia mas

Quien me iba a decir lo que iba a pasar
quien me iba a decir que ibasa cambiar
dime cuando tu cambiaste el bien por el mal

[SOLO]

Quien me iba a decir lo que iba a pasar
quien me iba a decir que ibasa cambiar
dime cuando tu cambiaste el bien por el mal



Bien bien, esto marcha, ya estamos animadillos ¿eh? Pero sé que vuestros corazones bárbaros y primitivos desean más destrucción. Hmmm bueno, os pido un poco de paciencia antes de pasar a los temas más destroyers de la lista. Antes quiero hacer otro viaje por las tierras vikingas y escuchar la maravillosa melodía que nos ofrece Avantasia como colofón de su Metal Opera Parte I.

THE TOWER - AVANTASIA

[Gabriel:]
Where do I go?

Never had a very real dream before.
Now I got a vision of an open door.
Guiding me home, where I belong,
Dreamland I have come.

Oh where do I go?

Never had a flesh and blood like this before.
Got a new appearance when I passed the door.
Is it a dream I am withing? Oh what's going on?

Down, down, down
Go down, go down, go down
I roam into nowhere.
Don't see an end: eternal wastelands.
And I hear the voice, the voice, the voice, the voice...

Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah...

Never been a fighter, neber been a man.
But I must help Vandroiy, he's my only friend.
Nowhere to go but I know that he knows how
We will get her out...

Magic of transcendence
Brought me to this place
Vandroiy in reality lead me on my race.
Told me to bring back the seal
But still I don't know where I shall go.

[Lugaid:]
Can't you 'feel' the voice?
You don't have a choice.
What a kind of life:
Freedom in flesh - shackles on your mind...

Go all the way to the tower!
Find out the secrets behind!
Go all the way to the tower!
For all the wisdom of ages doesn't die.

[Elderane:]
Men have good intentions
On their way to the light.
But som of them are venal
And end up in the night.
Maybe it's better for you, mankind,
Not to know what's going on.


Sometimes we must go
Ways that seem to be wrong.
What a kind of life: Freedom in flesh,
Shackles on your mind...

[Lugaid:]
Go all the way to the tower!
Find out the secrets behind!
Go all the way to the tower!
Find out the name of the one
Who reigns from inside...

[Voice in the Tower:]
You have come the long way through ages
To bring me the seven parts of the seal.
So now throw it over the walls of the tower.
Throw the seal!

[Pope:]
But first Godfather, what about the prophecy? What
About your reward: The ultimate illumination, the
Gnosis and the power to defend your kingdom on
Earth with a strong hand? What about the prophecy?

[Lugaid:]
I realize...

[all:]
For the glory, for the glory, for the glory,
For the glory. Oh - what is going on?
For the glory, for the glory, for the glory,
For the glory. Oh - what is going on?

[Lugaid:]
Gabriel I can feel:
You have it back - book and seal.
Still no war is won, we have just begun...

Go all the way to the tower!
Long for the secrets behind!
Go all the way to the tower!
Found out the name of the one
Who reigns from inside...

Go all the way to the tower!
Long for the secrets behind!
Go all the way to the tower!
Found out the name of the one,
Of the one...

[Jakob:]
Oh, how could the stranger steal the seal away?
Was it my fault? Or was it no one's fault at all?




Está bien, está bien, habéis sido muy pacientes... Ahora es cuando pasamos a lo bueno de verdad. Preparáos para este viaje por las simas más oscuras del barbarismo, pues este viaje es solo de ida.

¿Seguís ahí? Hmmm entiendo... El viaje por la destrucción tiene tres fases: la primera senda nos lleva por un cover que hizo Craddle of Filth (como diría Santiago Segura... es Death Metal, que no es lo mismo XDD) de la mítica (yo diría divina, incomparable, grandiosa, emocionante) canción de Iron Maiden, Hallowed be thy name.

HALLOWED BE THY NAME - CRADDLE OF FILTH

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--ooohhh...
When the priest comes to read me the last rites,
I 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 this 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 flow 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 does 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.
I've gone beyond to see the truth.

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.

Yeah, yeah, yeah...Hallowed be Thy name
Yeah, yeah, yeah...Hallowed be Thy name
Yeah..................................



¿Habéis sobrevivido a la primera fase? Hmmm entiendo... sois más duros y duras de lo que pensaba. Si habéis llegado hasta aquí, entonces os pido perdón por haber dudado de vuestra capacidad barbaril ^^.

Continuemos... De todos es sabido que el norte de Europa ha sido la cuna del barbarismo más bárbaro, y por eso volvemos otra vez para allí, esta vez de la mano de un grupo épico-destroyer-death-mortal-de-la-hostia: Amon Amarth.

RUNES TO MY MEMORY - AMON AMARTH

We hold the rivers of the eastern trail
Deep in the land of the Rus
Following the wind in our sails
And the rythm of the oars

No shelter in this hostile land
Constantly on guard
Ready to fight and defend, our ship to bitter end

We came under attack
I received a deadly wound
A spear was forced into my back
Still I fought on

When I am dead, lay me in a mound
Raise a stone for all to see
Runes come to my memory!

Here I lie on the river bank
A long long way from home
Life is pouring out of me
Soon I will be gone
I tilt my head, to the side
And think of those back home
I see the river rushing by
The blood runs from my wound

Here I lie, on wet sand
I will not make it home
I clench my sword in my hand
Say farewell to those I love

When I am dead, lay me in a mound
Place my weapons by my side
For the journey to hall up high

When I am dead, lay me in a mound
Raise a stone for all to see
Runes come to my memory!
To my memory



Y, finalmente, llegó la hora de la verdad: ¿estarán vuestros oídos débiles preparados para el nivel más épico que se puede encontrar? ?Lo están? Pues bienvenidos seáis, oh, verdaderos defensores del true metal, a las magníficas estancias de Valhalla. Esta vez viajaremos al Nuevo Continente y escucharemos a los bardos preferidos de Odín el Tuerto. Por favor, hagan el favor de subir al máximo el volumen de sus altavoces y disponganse a deleitar a toda la comunidad de vecinos con la melodía de los dioses. Como no, hablo de... ¡Manowar!

THE DAWN OF THE BATTLE - MANOWAR

Dreadful Thunder
The storms moving in
And Judgment day is calling
My soul has been healed
By the power of steel
And the sound of glory

I will send into the ground
All that are found
By the sign of the hammer falling
Yes Heathens will fall
I will strike down them all
Then you will know my calling

Bravery calls my name
In the sound of the wind in the night
My sword will drink blood
And I will fight
Yes I will fight
In the dawn of battle
Dawn of Battle

I will rise up from the chaos
I will rise up from the grave
A brother to the darkness
A master to the slaves

I am the soul descendent
Of the fire and the rage
I was wrought upon the earth
Born to rule and battle wage

By the total domination
Of the world in my command
By the Air and the water
By the Fire and the land

I give no explanation
I was branded by the will
Bringer of Death and Destruction
To all that I now kill

Bravery calls my name
In the sound of the wind in the night
My sword will drink blood
And I will fight
Yes I will fight
In the dawn of battle
Dawn of Battle

I long to be free
So I wait for a sign
I wait for a star
To fall from the sky
From the dust of sleep
A promise to keep
Then all who see shall believe
Deliver into my hand
The sword of the land
Let my journey begin
So all shall understand
That if I fall
I will live again

I will rise up from the chaos
I will rise up from the grave
A brother to the darkness
A master to the slaves

I give no explanation
I was branded by the will
To bring of Death and Destruction
To all that I now kill

Bravery calls my name
In the sound of the wind in the night
My sword will drink blood
And I will fight
Yes I will fight
In the dawn of battle




¿Habéis sobrevivido a este épico viaje? Pues entonces os podéis subir 3 niveles de bárbaro, de gratis... pero tenéis que poneros las dotes de Ataque Poderoso, Hendedura y Gran Hendedura... sino... habréis malgastado vuestros niveles y seréis unos emos patéticos el resto de vuestras vidas.

Ahora me despido de vosotros, nos encontraremos... en algún lugar del camino. ¡Hail Metal! ^^
