Literatura no metal (Part III)

Música: Power Symphony, “Shores Of My Land“, (Evillot)

Livro de inspiração: Eneida (Virgílio)

**

**

“A stranger will come sent by the Gods
his land lies destroyed
A king comes to build a new throne

*

Beautiful Ilium your name is well known
rumours have brought us the news of your fall
I see your ruin I see my own I see my own

*

Heroes of the land take your lances in your hands
put your armour on follow me to the shore
we shall gather at the ships we shall face the foreign king
We shall win

*

Shores of my land, war will be soon
blood onto you
will flow as the flames will arise

*

Powerful heroes your names will be known
None will forget of your pride and your worth
I see your ruin I warn you all
rumours of war

*

Heroes of the land take your lances in your hands
put your armour on follow me to the shore
we shall gather at the ships we shall face the foreign king
We shall win

*

No more I’ll wonder at the sun rising from this waters deep
Trojan ships are sailing through heading for this land

*

Merciless Gods who never mind of mortal men
my time is at hand but proud I will stand
Souls of the elder welcome me when I have gone
my fate is sealed my battle is lost
And I am lost with my land
all I have done after all it has been in vain.

*

He comes from the fabled Troy
Aeneas his name

*

Shores of mine… Shores in flames.”

Literatura no metal (Part II)

Música: Symphony X, “The Odyssey”, (The Odyssey)

Livro de inspiração: Odisseia (Homero)

**

**

[Part I Odysseus’ Theme / Overture]

[instrumental]

*

[Part II – Journey to Ithaca]

To the one that I love, my journey has begun
When our eyes meet once more there will be peace
The taste of your lips the warmth of your touch
again, forever, two souls as one

*

Seems like forever that my eyes have been denied
Home – I’m dreaming of the home
tI’ve been twenty years away from all I ever knew
to return would make my dream come true

*

Seasons of sorrow have stolen all my years
I miss the rolling hills of Ithaca
I’ve been through battles and cried a sea of tears
but the tide is changing, and with it all my fears

*

Seems like forever that my eyes have been denied
Home – I’m dreaming of the home
I’ve been twenty years away from all I ever knew
to return would make my dream come true

*

Behold the sea and winds of Jove
We set sail guided by the stars above
The ports of Troy escape our view
a cold and stormy fate awaits our rendezvous

*

Onward we ride, into the raging fury
Setting our course by the moon and sun
We forge ahead seeking glory
Yet the journey has just begun

*

Onward we ride – nine days we brave her might
we are coming home…

*

[Part III – The Eye]

Awakened at dawn – Land dead ahead
with the winds of the morning we change course
no remorse, a place forbidden to all

*

Search all the grounds – find food and water
Yet journey not into the Cave of Woe
long ago, a legend spoke of a beast

*

A thousand riches hidden deep within the stone
A thousand nightmares mortal blood forever flows

*

A mountainous black – engulfed in a shadow
a bone-chilling growl and an Eye of Hate
a ghastly fate – held prisoner by the Eye

*

Yet he must sleep – as the daylight fades
we focus our senses and sharpen our blade
we take aim – In silence we strike

*

A thousand riches hidden deep within the stone
A thousand nightmares – blood runs forever – from the Eye…

*

[Part IV – Circe (Daughter of the Sun)]

We sit adrift on the open sea
The gift of wind, by Zeus, concealed – so carelessly
We break the waves on a course untrue
across the endless plain of blue – a new coast in view

*

Yeah…

*

We carouse with the maiden
beneath her eyes the madness lies
…in mystery

*

I drink deep from the chalice
of gold and jade – my senses fade
…I’m mesmerized

*

Stay – like those before
I condemn you all – from walk to crawl
…metamorphasized

*

No – my will it defies her
speak the verse – lift the curse
…she’s mesmerized

*

Am I asleep?
Tell me Daughter of the Sun
There’s vengeance in the air and all things must be undone

*

[Part V – Sirens]

Dire warnings –
told by the sorceress in white
‘false bringers of love’ – Sirens
echoing songs from above

*

Wings flowing –
floating on Sea of Lies
I defy their vision
Elysium swallows my cries

*

Embracing –
maidens of lust stimulate
and manipulate my senses
I welcome a watery grave

*

Tied steadfast to the mast
tragedy awaits me
I’m falling victim
betrayed by the sea

*

[Part VI – Scylla and Charybdis]

[a) Gulf of Doom]
[b) Drifting Home]

[instrumental]

*
[Part VII – The Fate of the Suitors / Champion of Ithaca]

So this is home…
In the guise of a beggar – Minerva guides my way
I find my kingdom in jeopardy

*

Vengeance – it swells within me
As I spy so many who eye my Queen
I’ll make them pay for this blasphemy… All will see

*

Triumphant – Champion of Ithaca
I will right all the wrongs
Let the Gods sing my song
Triumphant – Champion of Ithaca
Let a new life begin
my journey has come to and end

*

A contest of valor
‘to pierce the twelve rings
in a single arrow’s flight’
Yet, not a one can string the bow

*

My veil of silence lifted
All is revealed
revenge burns in my heart
thrashing and slashing down all my foes…to claim the throne

*

Triumphant – Champion of Ithaca
I will right all the wrongs
Let the Gods sing my song
Triumphant – Champion of Ithaca
Let a new life begin
this is the end of my Odyssey

*

Seems like forever that my eyes have been denied
Home – I’m finally home
I’ve been twenty years away from all I ever knew
I have returned to make my dream come true”

Literatura no metal (prólogo retroativo)

No post Nerd Metal, falei à exaustão de como gosto de músicas que contêm referências culturais. Na coleção de posts do Amor no metal, compilei outras tantas músicas que diferenciavam o gênero de outros que abordavam o mesmo tema.

Não contente, resolvi criar mais uma saga, a Literatura no metal, para expor algumas das citadas músicas de bases literárias, e outras tantas que não mencionei. É minha forma de agradecer ter tomado contato com os gênios da escrita através de gênios da música.

Tentarei seguir algumas padronizações, muitas delas se mantendo iguais às relacionadas no prólogo amoroso. A diferença básica se encontra no parágrafo abaixo do nome da música, contendo a obra literária que serviu de inspiração e seu autor. Além disso, em vez de um link que abra uma outra página com a música, colocarei um vídeo incorporado no próprio texto. Quem sabe com algo mais visual e dinâmico as pessoas se animam em ouvir, quando não quiserem acompanhar a letra?

Terminado isso, acho que posso devolvê-los para a Parte I.

“Turn your head and see the fields of flames

*

(Don’t move along)
He carries along
(Cause things they will go wrong)
From a distant place
(The end is getting closer)
He’s on his way
(Day by day)
He’ll bring decay
In shades of grey
We’re doomed to face the night
Light’s out of sight

*

Since we’ve reached the point of no return
We pray for the starlight we wait for the Moon
The sky is empty, alone in the unknown
we’re getting nowhere

*

We have been betrayed by the wind and the rain
The sacred hall’s empty and cold
The sacrifice made should not be done in vain
Revenge will be taken by Rome

*

We live a lie
Under the dying moon
Pale-faced laughs doom
Indulges in delight

*

It’s getting out of hand
The final curtain will fall

*

Hear my voice
There is no choice
There’s no way out
You’ll find out

*

We don’t regret it
So many men have failed but now he’s (gone)
Go out and get it
The madman’s head it shall be thine
We don’t regret it
That someone else dies hidden in (disguise)
Go out and get it
Orion’s hound shines bright

*

Don’t you think it’s time to stop the chase
Around the ring
Just stop running, running
Round the ring
Don’t you know that fate has been decided
By the gods
Feel the distance, distance
Out of reach

*

Welcome to the end
Watch your step, Cassandra, you may fall
As I’ve stumbled on the field
Find myself in darkest places
(Sister mine)
Find myself drifting away
(Death’s a certain thing)
And the other world
The other world appears

*

Find myself she dies in vain

*

I cannot be freed, I’m falling down
As time runs faster, moves towards disaster
The ferryman will wait for you, my dear

*

And then there was silence
Just a voice from the other world
Like a leaf in an icy world
Memories will fade

*

Misty tales and Poems lost
All the bliss and beauty
Will be gone
Will my weary soul find release for a while
At the moment of death I will smile
It’s the triumph of shame and disease

*

In the end (Iliad)
Raise my hands and praise the day
Break the spell show me the (way)
In decay
The flame of Troy will shine bright

*

The newborn child will carry ruin to the hall
The newborn’s death would be a blessing to us all

Good choice?
Bad choice?
Out of three you’ve chosen misery

*

Power and wisdom you deny
(Bad choice, bad choice)
War is the only answer when Love will conquer fear

*

So the judgement’s been made
To the fairest the graceful says
Badly he fails

*

(Warning)
Fear the heat of passion, father king
(Don’t let him in
Don’t let her in)
Desire, lust, obsession
Death they’ll bring
(We can’t get out
Once they are in)

*

She’s like the sunrise
Outshines the Moon at night
Precious like starlight
She will bring in a murderous price

*

(In darkness grows the seed of man’s defeat)
Jealousy
(I can clearly see the end now)
I can clearly see the end now
I can clearly see the end now

*

(The thread of life is spun)
The coin’s been placed below my tongue

*

Never give up
Never give in
Be on our side so we can win
Never give up
Never give in
Be on out side
(Old moon’s time) is soon to come

*

Nowhere to run
Nowhere to hide
Nothing to lose like one we’ll stand
We’ll face the storm
Created by a man

*

Roar Roar Roar Roar
Troy (Troy Troy Troy)
And as the lion slaughters man
I am the wolf and you’re the lamb

*

(Hallowed) Troy will fall round the walls
Faith is shattered, bodies fall

*

Nowhere to run
Nowhere to hide
Nothing to lose like one we’ll stand
It’s all for one and one for all
We live for will be wiped out
It’s all for one and one for all
We live for will be wiped out

*

I feel that something’s (wrong)
Surprise, surprise they’re gone
Full moon your time goes by
And new moon’s still kept out of sight

*

We live
Misty tales and Poems lost
(We die)
All the bliss and beauty will be gone
Will my weary soul find release for a while
At the moment of death I will smile
It’s the triumph of shame and disease

*

In the end (Iliad)
Raise my hands and praise the day
Break the spell show me the (way)
In decay
The flame of Troy will shine bright

*

Roam in darkness
(Spread the vision)
Roam in darkness
(Spread the vision)
Roam in darkness
(Spread the vision)
Roam in darkness
(Spread the vision)
(Roam in darkness)
(We will be lost if you truly believe)
(Roam in darkness)
Troy in darkness
(There’s a cold emptiness in our hearts)
That they’ve gone away
(And) won’t come back

*

They’ll tear down the wall to bring it in
They’ll truly believe in the lie
Lie, lie

*

With blossoms they’ll welcome the old foe

*

The vision’s so clear
When day and dream unite the end is near
You better be prepared

*

The nightmare shall be over now, there’s nothing more to fear
Come join in our singing and dance with us now
The nightmare shall be over now, there’s nothing more to fear
The war it is over forevermore

*

No hope
The blind leads the blind
Carry on
Though future’s denied

*

Mare or stallion
There’s far more inside
We are in at the kill we’ll cheerfully die

*

Misty tales and Poems lost
All the bliss and beauty
Will be gone
(Will) my weary soul find release for a while
At the moment of death I will smile
It’s the triumph of shame and disease

*

In the end (Iliad)
Raise my hands and praise the day
Break the spell show me the (way)
In decay
The flame of Troy will shine bright

*

Holy light shines on

*

So the judgement’s been made
We’re condemned though the trial’s far ahead
The crack of doom, Father
Your handsome son is heading home

*

Still the wind blows, calm and silent
Carries news from a distant shore
Still the wind blows, calm and silent
Carries news from a distant shore
Still the wind blows, calm and silent
(Out of mind)
Carries news from a distant shore
(Can’t get it)
(Still the wind blows, calm and silent)
(Out of mind)
(Carries news from a distant shore)
(Can’t get it out of my head)
(Can’t get it)
(Out of mind)
(Can’t get it out of my head)

*

Sorrow and defeat
Sorrow and defeat”
