Crossing down the secret paths
that led to the old valleys
Riding through the sacred woods,
the ancient sanctuary
where lay, dead, our old gods...
On our way we found the trace
of the evil invasion
Strange animals ran around us
- nature's perversion
And their tormented eyes...
Balance was broken between darkness and light
Life was corrupted by an evil might
The Earth was screaming, full of deep pain
and we heeded her call across the mountains
Holy Forest, crying our names
Mighty and brave, we have heard your call
For the salvation of our beloved lands
The dark reign of evil will now fall !
The sacred flame of life won't fade
smothered by Algoth's claw
As ancient prophecies said,
four warriors will crush the foe -
And I know... We are the Ones !!!
[repeat bridge & chorus]

This song comes from our forthcoming musicdisk, Children Of The Rising
Sun, which will be released in September 2000. This disk contains 8
tracks, about 45 minutes of epic metal (it's not finished at that time).
As you may notice it, those tunes were inspired by Rhapsody...:) I just
wanted to do a symphonic album with a story, like theirs... just to check
if I could do it :) It took me more than six months to compose and track
everything ! And now here comes the result... the first song is ready :)
And since the theme of the disk corresponds well to the Fantasy Compo
theme, I decided to enter it with the song, just to see how far a metal
song would go there...:-)))
Hails go to : Cadaver, Hakan, Dragon, HolyBlood, Darkium, Razor,
Neomancia, Galahad, AeuK, BlueShade, Necromancer, Desperado, Daoloth, NiC,
The Wicker Man and all those I may have forgotten...
Special thanks go to Cadaver for those vocals, and all the hints about the
guitars. Big thanks also to all the members of the mighty choir you can
hear in the song (in fact, it's four guys, including myself, singing
around a single microphone, but who cares...LOL :)))
Enjoy, and if you like that song, just check the others on my site, and
don't forget the disk in September, of course ! :)
