“Symphony of Enchanted Lands” by Rhapsody

\"Това, което е разказано между тези страници, предназначени да напомнят на идните поколения, е написано от мъдрата стара ръка на Aresius от Elgard, който може да свидетелства пред Бога за друго невероятно епично събитие. Ще ви разкажа за смелия войн на Loregard, син на осветения лед, и неговото търсене на легендарния смарагдов меч, мощното оръжие на добрите сили, решаващо съдбите по време на война и осигуряващо мир, нашата последна надежда за спасението на омагьосаните земи... \"

Така започва “SYMPHONY OF ENCHANTED LANDS” („СИМФОНИЯ ЗА ОМАГЬОСАНИТЕ ЗЕМИ“), втора част от „САГАТА ЗА СМАРАГДОВИЯ МЕЧ“. Тя е замислена като проект от 5 албума в стил fantasy от китариста LUCA TURILLI, тогава участник в италианската symphonic power metal група RHAPSODY, чиято музика съчинява заедно с пианиста ALEX STAROPOLI.

Ето накратко либретото на тази част от хрониките на Alagalord, чиято основна тема е за търсенето на трите ключа на мъдростта, продължение на повествованието от първата част на сагата „Легендарните истории“:

„…Ice Warrior (Леденият войн) трябва да преодолее най-дълбоките си страхове в \"Огледалото на сенките \", за да получи първия ключ. После следва да премине през Tharos, вечно бдящия дракон, пазител на втория ключ, който е омагьосан. Драконът е сразен след продължителна битка. Ice Warrior обаче не се възползва от възможността да го унищожи и освобождава Tharos от заклинанието. Двамата стават съюзници. Tharos качва Ice Warrior на гърба си и те отлитат към далечна долина, където е олтарът на Ikaren. Там, в тайнствената пещера, той открива третия ключ. Близо до този олтар е скрит проход, водещ към голяма зала, където древният магьосник Aresius очаква явяването на избрания в кула над Портата от слонова кост.

Ice Warrior и Tharos преминават през Портата от слонова кост, озовават се в красива долина, за да се окажат след това на странно пустинно място. Внезапно духове и призраци прииждат от всички страни и обграждат Ice Warrior. Тогава Tharos се отплаща за сторената му добрина, спасява Ice Warrior и двамата политат заедно. Не след дълго небето над тях се смрачава и всичко потъва в мраз. Tharos разкрива, че това е тъмната крепост на Abyss (бездната), за която се говори, че е мястото, където е скрит смарагдовият меч. Докато летят над крепостта, се появяват крилати демони.

Tharos оставя Ice Warrior на най-високата кула, докато се бори с демоните. Ice Warrior отваря капак и се спуска в голяма зала, за да открие смарагдовия меч, и го взема в ръце. Пазителят на меча се появява, започва се битка и той почти убива Ice Warrior, но Tharos се появява в решителния момент и се хвърля към Пазителя, като дава на Ice Warrior достатъчно време да се възстанови и смъртоносно да нарани чудовището. Те бързо се измъкват и отлитат към Портата от слонова кост. Чак там Ice Warrior забелязва, че драконът е смъртоносно ранен. Червеният дракон Tharos умира скоро след това, а Ice Warrior се заклева да отмъсти като убие тъмния лорд Akron със собствените си ръце…“

LYRICS:

1. Epicus Furor

Quae mala venientia metuuntur eadem afficiunt aegritudine instantia


2. Emerald Sword

Crossed the valleys the dust of midlands
to search for the third key to open the gates
Now I m near the altar the secret inside
as legend told my beloved sun light the dragons eyes
On the way to the glory I ll honour my sword
to serve right ideals and justice for all

Finally happened the sun lit their eyes
the spell was creating strange games of light
Thanks to hidden mirrors I found my lost way
over the stones I reached the place it was a secret cave
In a long bloody battle that prophecies told
the light will prevail hence wisdom is gold

For the king for the land for the mountains
For the green valleys where dragons fly
For the glory the power to win the black lord
I will search for the emerald sword

Only a warrior with a clear heart
could have the honour to be kissed by the sun
Yes, I m that warrior I followed my way
led by the force of cosmic soul I can reach the sword
On the way th the glory I ll honour my sword
to serve right ideals and justice for all

For the king for the land for the mountains
For the green valleys where dragons fly
For the glory the power to win the black lord
I will search for the emerald sword


3. Wisdom Of The Kings

Removed the stones which hide the cave
blind and dark along my way
I must go on wise and brave before a last hail
At the end of floor stairs of ancient stone
lead me to a vision, an unreal hall

And they appear in front of me
lightened by a mystic flame
A new dimension I have to face beyond the gates
I can not believe oh what now I see
when the two demons awake from the sleep

Holy dragons keepers of time
Ride brave the blue skies and spell my eyes
Fly beyond these hills ride on the wind
The wisdom of the kings

Lost in a dream I m under the spell
of this sunny magic land
But Aresius said: Become aware! All can hide the hell...
Now it s time to go to the mighty sword
it s time to follow the kings holy call

Holy dragons keepers of time
Ride brave the blue skies and spell my eyes
Fly beyond these hills ride on the wind
The wisdom of the kings


4. Heroes Of The Lost Valley

[Part I: Entering the Waterfalls Realm]

[instrumental]

[Part II: The Dragons Pride]

\"Yes, mighty warrior... What you hear now are the suffering, voices of all
the heroes that crossed these lands before you. They ended their quest tragically
but their thirst for victory is still alive and breathers through these
ancient rocks corroded by the fury of the wind. Their pride now rides with you...\"


5. Eternal Glory

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 in my pride
in this infinite journey to the ancient sword

I can hear their lament between these rocks
the whisper on an angry ghost
he speaks for them all trapped on 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 place 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


6. Beyond The Gates Of Infinity

Fire of wisdom light the sky
let me go no through this dark evil ground
A veil of fog now covers all
something is happening my heart must be strong
Keep away monsters of hell
No, I won t give you my inviting flesh

Deformed creatures all around me
crept out from ancient and unholy crypts
They ll be your madness they ll be your end
they ll lick your bones and they ll drink your brain
Keep away monsters of hell
No, I won t give you my inviting flesh

Your tongue will be torn your bowels my food
your body impaled of shit will be full
now foolish warrior hear my words

You are condemned and you will come
with us all beyond the gates of infinity

I m the mighty warrior herd of the northern lands
Algalord is calling so your hell must wait

Your tongue will be torn your bowels my food
your body impaled of shit will be full
now foolish warrior hear my words

You are condemned and you will come
with us all beyond the gates of infinity


7. Wings Of Destiny

Day has gone but I m still here with you
my sweet rose my green hills
beloved sea, lakes and sky
beloved mother earth

Silent land erase my thoughts
I wanna lose myself in you, all in you
caress me and my soul
while I close my eyes

On wings of destiny
through virgin skies
to far horizons I will fly

Dear peaceful land, dear mother earth
caress my soul while I close my eyes

On wings of destiny
through virgin skies
to far horisons I will fly


8. The Dark Tower of Abyss

Spread your wings to dark horisons
fly where the twilight reigns
Mighty Tharos cross the line of hell
it s so near

Lost in the shadow I search for my sun
Fly and face it before the new moon
there where chaos rules

Domine deterges nubila caeld
Bellator a proposito non deterreres
Unholy vision ancestral terror
spare my mind my innocent eyes

\"...And suddenly the the unreal silence is broken by a lament...
A lament coming up from the deepest Darkest abyss...
And from the seven gates of the dark fortress
the dead come back to life to face him... this is hell...\"
Immortal fire now light my heart light my way
Face the old legend the guardian of space and time

Living dead on black winged demons
fly high to play with your head
Gothic portals mystic towers
between the dark clouds

Lost in the shadow I search for my sun
Fly and face it before the new moon
there where chaos rules


9. Riding the Winds of Eternity

Wise and mighty you are force of the earth
Fierce becomes the sea at your command
Winds of the south winds of the north
let me hear your call
Blow on my heart filling my soul
give me the force of the storm

For all of the time I will ride be my guide
I will follow your sign for a just life
Winds of the south winds of the north
let me hear your call
Blow on my heart filling my soul
give me the force of the storm

Riding the holy winds, winds of eternity
I ll fight you forever nightmares sons


10. Symphony Of Enchanted Lands

[Part I: Tharos Last Flight]

\"Oh, cruel, destiny... The tears soon covered the warrior s face and Tharos,
the beloved dragon, spread his wings for the last time, happy to have found
the freedom at least in death... Fly... fly high, mighty Tharos... Your name
will always be remembered by the people of the enchanted lands... and your
memory will march with us forever against the hordes of the black lord for
the salvation of the enchanted lands.
Goodbye, brother... goodbye...!!\"

[Part II: The Hymn of the Warrior]

God of dawn, father of thunder
Lord of the wind now blowing on me
Thank you for all, for your holy sign
For mountains and hills, the forest, the sea
for all those dead and for my princess
they ll shed their blood cause finally
the emerald sword is now mine

[Part III: Rex Tremende]

For what you did to them
you will burn in my hate

Son of hell betrayer of light
king of the dark your name is carved on my steel
for your will the innocent die every day
but my sword will soon come for you all
and your kingdom will fall
and you ll be dust again forever

Rex tremende semper inimice
ad gloriam perpetuam brave all we ll march
to give you the eternal agony

Love magic word fill all my dreams eternally use me
Love guide me to ecstasy to victory to infinity
to rhymes of winds to the voice of the dead
to innocence of my memory

Rape of earth I want your head
sadist pig I can t forgive what you did
all the blood you re sucking out of my land
But my sword will soon come for you all
and your kingdom will fall
and you ll be dust again forever

Rex tremende semper inimice
ad gloriam perpetuam brave all we ll march
to give you the eternal agony

[Part IV: The Immortal Fire]

\"Go, mighty warrior... The kings of enchanted lands are awaiting your
victory! Ride on the wings of wisdom, ride beyond the middle valleys to
defeat the master of chaos in the name of cosmic justice. Peace and love
forever!\"
