“Power of the Dragonflame“ by Rhapsody

„Помнете, горди братя, всичко е възможно, когато оставите мистичната сила на драконовия пламък да гори в сърцата ви. Повярвайте, това е драконовият пламък!"


С тези думи завършва “POWER OF THE DRAGONFLAME“ („СИЛАТА НА ДРАКОНОВИЯ ПЛАМЪК“), последната част от „САГАТА ЗА СМАРАГДОВИЯ МЕЧ“ на италианската symphonic power metal група RHAPSODY. Тя е замислена от китариста LUCA TURILLI като проект от 5 албума в стил fantasy, чиято музика съчинява заедно с пианиста ALEX STAROPOLI.

Сюжетната линия в тази сага е посветена на приключенията на рицаря Warrior of Ice, който тръгва да намери легендарния смарагдов меч за да победи тъмния лорд Akron, кралят на хаоса. Разказвач е древният магьосник Aresius, който „е видял всичко“:

"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 воин 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... "

Първите четири албума от „САГАТА ЗА СМАРАГДОВИЯ МЕЧ“ вече представихме в „Картини от една изложба“, сега е ред на петия и последния – „СИЛАТА НА ДРАКОНОВИЯ ПЛАМЪК“. LUCA TURILLI ни предлага драматичен финал на сагата с изненадващи сюжетни обрати, в който силите на хаоса, водени от техния крал Akron, сдобил се със смарагдовия меч, успяват да нанесат съкрушително поражение на защитниците на свещения град Algalord. Неочаквано обаче злодеят Dargor the Shadowlord открива светлина вътре в себе си, впечатлен от благородния жест към него на Warrior of Ice, пощадил живота му. Dargor се възправя срещу своя господар Akron, което пък позволява на Warrior of Ice да надвие Akron с цената на своя живот. Смарагдовият меч изчезва заедно с тях двамата в черните води на тъмните блата, а Страната на омагьосаните земи оцелява след като бранителите ? се възраждат и постигат победа срещу пълчищата на ада.

Ето какво споделя LUCA TURILLI:

„Посланието в албумите на RHAPSODY не е свързано с пространството и времето. В „САГАТА ЗА СМАРАГДОВИЯ МЕЧ“ показваме психологията на хора с някакви недъзи, но и с добрите им качества, които притежават. Във всеки човек има добра, но и зла личност. Много хора не разбраха какво наистина се крие зад текстовете на RHAPSODY, тълкуваха ги като историята на воин, което е само на повърхността. Така че, да, това е историята, но в нея вложих много метафори и послания за днешния ден. Ние искахме да представим сага, свързана с проблемите на всеки човек, в която да звучат епични елементи, да има фентъзи и ужаси, но те да бъдат наистина свързани с реалността ни“ – завършва LUCA TURILLI.

Албума “POWER OF THE DRAGONFLAME“, или „СИЛАТА НА ДРАКОНОВИЯ ПЛАМЪК“, записан с два хора, оркестър и солисти, ще чуем в предаването “Картини от една изложба®” на програма “Хоризонт” на БНР, в събота, 20 февруари, след новините от 21.00 ч.

LYRICS:

1. In Tenebris

Tenebra, tenebra... domina!
Tenebra, tenebra... danna me!
Let me open the dark portal
and so cross the crypts of ghostland... now...
Tenebra, tenebra... domina!
Tenebra, tenebra... danna me!
Let me see his face...
Furia cieca, caos in me...
Demoni...
lead me to your horned beast named king...
I will call my fire, air, earth,
the oceans waters... to stop inferno s breath!
Tenebra, tenebra... domina!
Tenebra, tenebra... danna me!
Tenebra... libera me!


2. Knightrider of Doom

The fading illusion the sirens grey tears
it s here in the cold air the town s tragic fear
The breath of infernos the rise of the dead
the portals of chaos the seventh black flame

(RIDE) Destino (KNIGHT) mi arrendo
...al tuo dominio del tempo!

IN THIS BLOODY DAWN
I WILL WASH MY SOUL
TO CALL THE SPIRIT OF VENGEANCE
TO DENY MY WISDOM FOR ANGER
TO BREAK THE SCREAM OF THE SILENT FOOL
AND TO BE THE SON OF DOOM...
OF DOOM!
IN THIS BLOOD DAWN
I WILL WASH MY SOUL
TO CALL THE SPIRIT OF VENGEANCE
TO DENY MY WISDOM FOR ANGER
TO BREAK THE SCREAM OF THE SILENT FOOL
TO BE A KNIGHTRIDER OF DOOM...
OF DOOM!

The rites of the unborn the dragonship s fall
the waves of my ocean the twins holy call
The march of the heroes the call of the gods
after the rituals on the silent shore

(RIDE) Destino (KNIGHT) mi arrendo
...al tuo dominio del tempo!

IN THIS BLOODY DAWN
I WILL WASH MY SOUL
TO CALL THE SPIRIT OF VENGEANCE
TO DENY MY WISDOM FOR ANGER
TO BREAK THE SCREAM OF THE SILENT FOOL
AND TO BE THE SON OF DOOM...
OF DOOM!
IN THIS BLOODY DAWN
I WILL WASH MY SOUL
TO CALL THE SPIRIT OF VENGEANCE
TO DENY MY WISDOM FOR ANGER
TO BREAK THE SCREAM OF THE SILENT FOOL
TO BE A KNIGHTRIDER OF DOOM...
OF DOOM!


3. The Power of the Dragonflame

Rise mighty dragon...

Rise, rise, rise, rise...
Mighty dragon rise!

Ruins of ancient wisdom closing now my darkest lonely eye
god is dead in Thorald and in Elnor s rhyme
Mutilated bodies are now carved in ancient holy stone
tragic decoration of unholy wars

The heart of the dragon is screaming awaiting
to write the black last page
The page of blood was written by them...
the dead now lying on the sand

Visions of disaster are now challenging the wild storms
cyclops of the midlands wash my bloody shore
Sirens from the open seas now heal my broken wounded brain
I call the holy typhoons... air, fire, earth!

The heart of the dragon is screaming awaiting
to write the black last page
The page of blood was written by them...
the dead now lying on the sand

FROM THE SILENT HILL WE SCREAM LOUD YOUR NAME
MIGHTY POWER OF THE DRAGONFLAME
FROM THE MOUNTAINS PROUD AND STRONG
WE CALL OUR DRAGONLORD

Mighty dragon rise... rise!

Energie di cosmi estinti gridano sangue
dalle terre dell ignoto senza pieta

The heart of the dragon is screaming awaiting
to write the black last page
The page of blood was written by them...
the dead now lying on the sand

FROM THE SILENT HILL WE SCREAM LOUD YOUR NAME
MIGHTY POWER OF THE DRAGONFLAME
FROM THE MOUNTAINS PROUD AND STRONG
WE CALL OUR DRAGONLORD


4. The March of the Swordmaster

Ride... die... sacrifice!

Along the river of bloody tears
the mighty steel shining in my hands
we march and honor our brothers
victims of Kron s evil plan

We cross the lakes of the holy woods
to reach the ocean where red waves rule
the black king is moving to Algalord
this is the time... he has to be stopped!

HAIL, HAIL!
...Brave Swordmaster!
MARCH, MARCH!
...Great Swordmaster!
and I ask the wind for the fall of the king...!

INTO THE RAY OF THE SUN
MARCH OUR HERO HUNTING THE DARKLORD
REBORN FROM THE BLOOD OF HIS GOD...
HIS GOD... THE WARMASTER KRON
RIDE FOR THE FALL OF HIS POWER
FIGHTING THE STORM, THE ROAR OF THE THUNDER
ALLY OF THE SUN AND THE MOON...
GREAT SWORDMASTER RULE!

Between the waves of the raging sea
echoes of warcries and battle hymns
the underworld s armies found their ancient queen
the funeral march in the depths of the abyss

The terror which strikes the honor which prays
will be face to face in the mortal doomsday
Resist my fierce soldiers their vision can kill
it will test your courage... and your will to live

HAIL, HAIL!
...Brave Swordmaster!
MARCH, MARCH!
...Great Swordmaster!
and I ask the wind for the fall of the king...!

INTO THE RAY OF THE SUN
MARCH OUR HERO HUNTING THE DARKLORD
REBORN FROM THE BLOOD OF HIS GOD...
HIS GOD... THE WARMASTER KRON
RIDE FOR THE FALL OF HIS POWER
FIGHTING THE STORM, THE ROAR OF THE THUNDER
ALLY OF THE SUN AND THE MOON...
GREAT SWORDMASTER RULE!

To avenge all those cries I will rise to the sky
to defend mother life...
Ride... die... sacrifice!


5. When Demons Awake

Oh god don t forsake me, I need to survive
the unholy vision, the eternal bloody night
He pronounced the rites, the slimy queen s awake
the cause is the sword, my sword in Akron s hands
The vomit of evil, the venom of death
is crashing my wisdom, is blocking my legs
They all suck the blood, have ecstasy in pain
eating their flesh, devouring their brains

Dead and vampires spit out from hell...
is the new legion of the lord of the damned
The vengeance of the gods, soon their heads will roll
Oh, bringer of chaos... you will pay for all!
Bowels rain around me, brothers mutilated
oh disfigured faces, flying army and bones
Fuck you bloody bastard, demon s raped soul
die into oblivion with your shitty sons

I M THE NORDIC WARRIOR
HUNTER OF THE MARCHING DEAD
I M THE BLOODY HAND OF TYTANS
WHEN... WHEN DEMONS AWAKE

Inferno apri rubami l anima
voglio sfidare l oscuro demone
Tutto e in me, cielo e oceani
fratelli gargoyles, volate qui da me

Oh god don t forsake me, I need to survive
the unholy vision, the eternal bloody night
He pronounced the rites, the slimy queen s awake
the cause is the sword, my sword in Akron s hands
The vomit of evil, the venom of death
is crashing my wisdom, is blocking my legs
They all suck the blood, have ecstasy in pain
eating their flesh, devouring their brains

I M THE NORDIC WARRIOR
HUNTER OF THE MARCHING DEAD
I M THE BLOODY HAND OF TYTANS
WHEN... WHEN DEMONS AWAKE


6. Agony Is My Name

One for the pain and two for my name
three for my wonderful kingdom
Four for my king, five for my queen
Six for the fall of my wisdom...
Earth s calling me!

VITA, MORTE, GLORIA, ONORE...
Airin, Arwald, Tharos in my painful dreams

Horror and death crossing my way
paint all the unreal landscape
Villages burn, the black fire runs...
runs through the heart of the forest...
killing my trees!

VITA, MORTE, GLORIA, ONORE...
Spazio e tempo play the rhymes of human lies!

ALGALORD S CALLING FOR HOLY REVENGE
THE RAGE OF THE HEROES IN MY HANDS
THE FURY WILL RISE AND SOON
THEY WILL TASTE MY SILVER BLADE
AND THEY WILL FACE THE PROPHECY
CAUSE AGONY IS... MY NAME!

Black is the rose that s now in my hand
black for the blood of the fallen
symbol of death will soon be reborn
into the life of my tears fall...
reborn and grow!

VITA, MORTE, GLORIA, ONORE...
Silent cries of children in my painful dreams

ALGALORD S CALLING FOR HOLY REVENGE
THE RAGE OF THE HEROES IN MY HANDS
THE FURY WILL RISE AND SOON
THEY WILL TASTE MY SILVER BLADE
AND THEY WILL FACE THE PROPHECY
CAUSE AGONY IS... MY NAME!

Quantus tremor est futurus,
quando judex est venturus...
quantus tremor est futurus,
...est venturus!

VITA, MORTE, GLORIA, ONORE...
Spazio e tempo play the rhymes of human lies!

ALGALORD S CALLING FOR HOLY REVENGE
THE RAGE OF THE HEROES IN MY HANDS
THE FURY WILL RISE AND SOON
THEY WILL TASTE MY SILVER BLADE
AND THEY WILL FACE THE PROPHECY
CAUSE AGONY IS... MY NAME!


7. Lamento Eroico

Langue in me l eco infranto
al truce sguardo dell angelo cieco
rovina in me l antica rima
nel cuor del cigno ferito e morente...

Cosmi di eternita tradita
di verita svanite che ora versano
lacrime d addio in un vuoto nero...
sincero e fiero al mio destino andro ...

URLA IL TUONO
AL MIO LAMENTO EROICO
SORTE... CONSUMA LA REALTA !

Spiriti di mondi arcani
chiedo la vita al di la della morte
per allinear le stelle amiche
e diventar guardiano celeste

Custode di eternita guarita
di verita trovate per tutti i figli di madre terra...
sempre a lei ho dato la vita... la morte...
cosi continuero !

URLA IL TUONO
AL MIO LAMENTO EROICO
SORTE... CONSUMA LA REALTA !

[ENGLISH TRANSLATION:]

[Heroic lament]

Languishes in me the broken echo
at the grim look of the blind angel
ruins in me the ancient rhyme
in the heart of the wounded, dying swan

Worlds of betrayed eternity
Of vanished truth, that are now shedding
Tears of farewell into a black void
Proud and sincere, I ll go (to meet) my destiny

[Chorus]
The thunder cries
my heroic lament,
fate ... consume reality.

Spirits of arcane worlds
I ask for life beyond death
To align the friendly stars
And to become a celestial guardian

Keeper of healed eternity
Of truth found for all children of mother earth
Always to her I have always given (my) life. (my) death.
thus I will continue.

[Chorus]
The thunder cries
my heroic lament,
fate ... consume reality.


8. Steelgods of the Last Apocalypse

Soon... winter again...
...snowlord come...
Come and cover those grey walls...

...VIOLENCE CALLS!
I want his fall...
his epic fall... in this evil war...
...fought to protect our ancient throne

From this grey prison I look at you
my lost and beloved wasted holy town
I call the prophecy s miracle
the thunder of the ancient book s word

WE ARE...
WE ARE THE ONES...
WHO LL FACE THE STEELGODS
OF THIS LAST APOCALYPSE...
...OF THE LAST APOCALYPSE!

Now... Algalord lies...
in the shades...
of my shy mystic rainbow...

...VIOLENCE CALLS!
I want his fall...
his epic fall... in this evil war...
...trapped behind these humid walls

Raise all your eyes to the autumn skies
capture the energy of that sight
They can have fun with my limbs and bones
but I swear my spirit will never fall

WE ARE...
WE ARE THE ONES...
WHO LL FACE THE STEELGODS
OF THIS LAST APOCALYPSE...
...OF THE LAST APOCALYPSE!

 

9. The Pride of the Tyrant

Back into the fire I will have my sword
He won one fight but not the total war
Hurricanes will wipe out the dynasty of Kron
The chains of steel can t hold the holy storm

Sunshine is lighting the ruins of the ancient town
the seven towers are screaming their pain so loud
With my eagles I ll fly free
from snowy mountains to crystal seas

WE WILL FLY TO THE EMPIRE OF STEELGODS
TO DISCOVER THE SECRET OF STORMS
AND AGAINST THE BLACK PRIDE OF THE TYRANT
WE LL USE IT TO DEFEND OUR THRONE

Dargor don t believe him... listen to my words!
You are the one who can still save your soul
Akron is the bastard... he massacred all
The evil hand that serves the will of Kron

You hate the tyrant as I and now don t deny
Give me the power to show you that I am right
With my eagles I ll fly free
from snowy mountains to crystal seas

WE WILL FLY TO THE EMPIRE OF STEELGODS
TO DISCOVER THE SECRET OF STORMS
AND AGAINST THE BLACK PRIDE OF THE TYRANT
WE LL USE IT TO DEFEND OUR THRONE

Seven flames to not forget, to be sure I ll not regret... ever!
...to become the rage of god... Chaos bringer worse than Kron...
beware!

Back into the fire I will have my sword
He won one fight but not the total war
Dargor don t believe him... listen to my words!
You are the one who can still save your soul

You hate the tyrant as I and now don t deny
Give me the power to show you that I am right
With my eagles I ll fly free
from snowy mountains to crystal seas

WE WILL FLY TO THE EMPIRE OF STEELGODS
TO DISCOVER THE SECRET OF STORMS
AND AGAINST THE BLACK PRIDE OF THE TYRANT
WE LL USE IT TO DEFEND OUR THRONE


10. Gargoyles, Angels of Darkness

[I. Angeli di Pietra Mistica]

The prophet told of loud thunders quaking the surface of earth
when the black raven would have turned victim of wonderful spells
He would have become a white swan born from the darklands of sin
Neither would Aresius have believed what was now changing in him
Swan... prince of the magic lake... Dargor s your name...

GARGOYLES, FLY
GARGOYLES, RISE
GARGOYLES, FLY HIGH...!
ANGELI DI PIETRA MISTICA
LADRI D ANIME FIERI VOLANO

Another mess of vampires, masquerade of sadistic pride
He could not endure these cruel games
against him who once spared its life
He realized so not too late to be really far from his king
far from his infinite blood thirst, too far to call them right for him
Rise... fly high and steal his soul... angels of stone...

GARGOYLES, FLY
GARGOYLES, RISE
GARGOYLES, FLY HIGH...!
ANGELI DI PIETRA MISTICA
LADRI D ANIME FIERI VOLANO

Ti invoco o terra... colora il mio nero...
con fiera lealta io giuro sincero...
tra anime morte e caos immenso
a Gaia sovrana l amore piu intenso... io Dargor a te...

Gargoyles, oh my brother gargoyles
Rise now, rise for his soul

[II. Exotic Interlude (instrumental)]

[III. ...And the Legend Ends...]

Dargor, do it... it must be done...
free your rage and light your soul...
It s Gaia s call...

...the powerful energies of the furthest secret cosmos heard
so the prayer of our mother Gaia, the supreme spirit
who gave us the miracle of life... and her dark son breathed new life...
The power of the dragonflame was realizing what had seemed to be impossible...

And this is then the epic end
of the legendary tale
of the one who found the light
and the dragonflame inside
of the tragic rain of a thousand flames
of the town s defenders who faced pain
of symphonies of enchanted lands
of whispers of love and hate

The dawn of victory can breathe in the wind
and this would mean the great rebirth
reborn, the one who s giving his life
...the towns lying on the ground
Be one (Be one!) of us (of us!) and
act as all the prophecies want...
To mountains and valleys, to fire and snow,
to sun, moon and wisdom rise your soul...
it s the call...!

Oh no, oh god, oh god no
What is happening?

ANGELI DI PIETRA MISTICA
LADRI D ANIME FIERI VOLANO
ANGELI DI PIETRA MISTICA
LADRI D ANIME FIERI VOLANO

Oh, god, my god...
it happened... it happened!

Dargor mortally struck the queen of the dead and called the mighty gargoyles against the legions of darkness...
He pushed Akron into the hands of the nordic warrior, now a dying victim of terrible tortures... the chosen one let himself fall into the deep marshes constraining the black king, with the emerald sword again in his hands, not to move... they became food for the snakes of the abyss...
But this sacrifice had a terrific and great effect and Akron s death meant the victory on the evil forces of abyss... once... forever...
Remember, proud brothers... everything is possible... when you let the mystic power of the dragonflame burn in your heart... believe it... ...it s the dragonflame!

Tenebra, tenebra... domina!
Tenebra, tenebra... danna me!
Let me see his face...
Furia cieca, caos in me...
Demoni...
lead me to your horned beast named king...
I will call my fire, air, earth,
the oceans waters... to stop inferno s breath!
Tenebra, tenebra... domina!
Tenebra, tenebra... danna me!
Tenebra... libera me!
