Hmm it is starting to get really heavy, maybe a bit to much, oh well I will bare with it. But the acoustic sounding part where simone sings is really cool.

Lyrics:

Speaking in degradation
A conversation can take a sudden turn
And reaching the point of violence
Because your silence left you without a hand to hold

Your past will lead you on to make...

Making a final judgement
Based on your bias will never bring you forward
Terror should never guide you
For even the fearful can take a beating in the end

Suspicion gets you nowhere

Those who denounce a way of life
Will stand alone
Left to atone their social blunders
If you gun down the messenger
You guarantee that he will be made
Into a saint
The martyr of the free world

I will say what I think
I will do what I say
When liberty seems out of reach
We'll fight for our freedom of speech

Requiem aeternam dona eis, Domine,
et lux perpetua luceat eis

Missing a simple context
A mental weakness can throw you out of balance
Listen, respect each other
Then you'll discover it mustn't always end in hate

It's not too late for mercy

I will say what I think
I will do what I say
When tolerance seems out of sight
We will fight
When liberty seems out of reach
We'll fight for our freedom of speech


Definately one of my favs. It's great it's so heavy, and the Gregorian chants, as well as the kind of acoustic part, bring nice diversity to the song. Truly love it!

Simone uses different kind of technique here yes, i love the fact she uses her versatile skills on the album, i know there are many fans who would like her to sing only opera all the time like Tarja but that would be just boring.

One of my favourites, it took some time opening up but now i know what it's all about Smile
Love the ending specially, some heavy drumming up there..

I Guess you need to change your vocals and not stick to the same thing all the time

So its good that this is a different song gives the fans something new its a great song!


as for tarja i love her and adore her lol Very Happy

This song's title was the first one that hooked me when I first read the tracklist.Then,I had that weird dream I was actually listening to it when I was not(and in my dream it sounded way different),then I have loved the gregorian chants from te teaser,and the acoustic part on the 3rd teaser(if I remember correctly) sounded so mysterious fro me,and I even thought that was from my beloved MOTFW .Then I heared the snippet which at first dissapointed me,but after a few more listens,plus listening to the full track it finally became my 2nd favorite song from DYU(Firstly I expected to be my fave,but nothing beats KoH for me *_*)

Lyrically it's really awesome,concrete and well aranged lyrics.Vocally it's really interesting,Simone experimented a lot with her low notes,which I love them.Musically,it's a true masterpiece.The main riff it's so heavy,death/trash metal-ish but the orchestration behind it make it very memorable.Then it cools off with the acoustic part,trhen t falls back in the riff with the grunts,slows with the choir,then it comes the very 'sharpy' and original guitar solo,and ends back with the chrous and grunts.The most experimental song in my opinion,a worth headbanger on the live shows

Agreed with Cris, it's a great song for headbanging. I already tested it. Razz
