Track Name: Ouverture in Do minore
Instrumental
Track Name: The Harmonic Passage
Caught in a wasteland
grey and oppressed
magical passage
fly me away

breath-taking magic
walking in dreams
the world has found
its harmony

Apprentice sorcerer
casting my spell
unleashing life
held in my mind

magic vibrations
thrilling the air
enchanted visions
alive through my hands


Harmonious lands are filling my eyes,
shining and bright the endless skies
weaving new worlds within my mind
drawing colours always bright
Sailing away from a starless night
the way I've always tried to find
now it stands before my sight
harmonic passage to a land of light

I'll never come back
this is my own realm
lying in the divine
essence of mine

Gods, be my witnesses
yield to my will
I will keep writing
forever this tale

Dalle rovine di ciò che fu
tesse una nuova realtà
un mondo neonato da egli forgiato
il regno di lui sarà
da se incoronato su trono dorato
il sogno di lui vivrà
l'Armonico Varco si accinge a solcar
verso lande di antica beltà
Track Name: The Flame Shall not Fade
We're the heritage
of immortal days
in flames and shades
we forged our way
Through the ices of north
and the sands of the sun
we travelled in aeons
to let not fade
the flame

We're descent of
the immemorial age
a sea of light
a wisdom race
and chaos will be
with our rise
and that shall be
the beginning of time

From the gold of the heaven thrones
from the steel of the heathen swords
they will merge what is right and wrong
and bring perfection in this world
From the depth of forgotten tombs
from the prophet's flesh and blood
they shall wake a shining truth
and forge perfection in this world

We shall sweep away
metaphysic's pain
thou shalt not weep
another day

the end shall be
the start of life
the consciousness
of our kind!

As we have died in flames
for the flame of life
we've walked in snow
to fight the ice
existing on
the shadow line
we burn ourselves
to feed the light!

From the gold of the heaven thrones
from the steel of the heathen swords
they will merge what is right and wrong
and forge perfection in this world
From the ashes of ancient tombs
to the glitter of golden domes
they'll unfold the words untold
and bring perfection in this world

of darkness and pain

In the flames of a million pyres
in the heat of a thousand fires
they will shine and they will die
deemed heresy their word
from the gold of the heaven thrones
to the circles of ancient stones
they will change what is right and wrong
and forge perfection in this world

Bound to the earth and led to fly
living and everdying
hated and doomed to the fire
keepers of the flame
Track Name: Wirewings
I live
I feel alive

I live for a dream
fighting for the feelings of my soul
my heart is open
from the tears not fallen
I draw hope

I see myself
forced to the depth of silence
last pain’s call
is now taking hold of me


Impotent in front of beauty
able to fly up
I live for a dream
I’m in need of something more
my soul is shining
but my wings are tied


Watching the sky
with the green in my eyes
and the winter in my heart

I live
Track Name: Son of Winter
Fire is crackling in this sunrise
My son of winter, son of heart and mind
Fading the colour of the ancient wisdom,
For your coronation I will sacrifice myself

I WILL LIVE AND YOU WILL GROW
WHITE BRANCHES ARE RISING
YOUR ROOTS ARE FIRM
GROW HIGH AND PROUD, MY FAITH IS BLIND
BLACK CROWS ARE DEAD
WHITE DOVES ARE FLYING

Sweet crimson pureness, I will love you
Until the daybreak fades my greedy fancies
Flowers of evil near leaves of life
Enchanted colours echo from black eyes of child

I’m the winter, I’m the cold
I’m the feeling never told
I’m the truth, I’m the lies
I’m the teardrop from your eyes

I’m the emotion without name
I am joy, I am pain
I’m the tree of the night
I’m the white of your might

I WILL LIVE AND YOU WILL GROW
WHITE BRANCHES ARE RISING
YOUR ROOTS ARE FIRM
GROW HIGH AND PROUD, MY FAITH IS BLIND
BLACK CROWS ARE DEAD
WHITE DOVES ARE FLYING
Track Name: La Caccia di Tùrin
Nelle aule in rovina di Nargothrond
si era annidato il flagello degli elfi
il verme dorato di Morgoth, primo tra i draghi.
La sua folle stregoneria abbatteva ogni nemico,
la sua empia avidità permeava ogni luogo.
A lui diede la caccia Tùrin, possente tra gli uomini,
che in cambio della vita ebbe vendetta.
Track Name: Golden Worm
In Nargothrond
with elven gold
the worm of Morgoth
made its throne
among their gems
among their bones
among the rests of
Fingon's folk

Dark spellcaster
poison tongued
with eyes of frost
and skin of gold
Both men and elves
were bare, unsheltered
against his subtle
science


His shroud of poison
and deceit
in Beleriand hath
made him king
Until he met
the blackened Turìn
on his trail of
violence


Sower of insanity
sorcerer of deceit
you're paying for all your cruelty
your evil spell shall be revealed
Creature of obscurity
foresee your defeat because
soon the blackened sword
shall pierce your throat!


"Hail, worm of Morgoth! Well met again!
Die now and the darkness have thee!
Thus is avenged"


Then his revenge he took riving his flesh
but, last of spells, he would be driven to Death
death to his kin, to his love, to his Niniel
death for himself, from his own bloody sword
sorrow and grief for the deeds of his hands
anguish and weep for his own mayhem
Many heroes
proud and bold
had fought against
the Golden worm
they died in fire
the ones who tried

burnt in poison
was the hand
that struck him dead
in the end
his last words
an heritage
of evil and
defiance

Sower of insanity
sorcerer of deceit
you're paying for all your cruelty
your evil spell shall be revealed
Creature of obscurity
foresee your defeat because
soon the blackened sword
shall pierce your throat
shall cut your tongue
and spill your blood

Faded the mist
at the death of the beast
died in death
evil and wretched
Track Name: Victory March
Instrumental
Track Name: La Grotta di Cristallo
Dalle nebbie di Avalon
alle nebbie della mente
avea viaggiato
lo stregone senescente
nelle vene il ricordo
dell'antico potere
nella mente il timore di svanire.

La stessa gioventù
dopo averlo abbandonato
ben presto lo tradì
e fu fautrice del suo fato
nei panni di una donna
dal divino candore
il mago fu stregato al suo venire

Fu nella grotta di cristallo
ch'egli comprese il suo tranello
falso amore aveva offerto
allo stregone vecchio e stanco
Fu in quella gabbia di cristallo
che disse addio a questo mondo
il nobile figlio del falco
saggio e profeta verecondo

Dalle sue arti di donna
egli si lasciò circuire
le sue arti di mago
le permise di carpire
e quand'ella ebbe in pugno
tale nuovo potere
il mago stritolò tra le sue spire

Nell'antro scintillante
in cui conobbe l'avvenire
di regni ed eroi
e il destino del suo sire

rinchiuso in eterno,
sortilegio crudele
in un sonno destinato a non finire

Il suo regno però
tuttora vive

Eterne tenebre e rimpianti
ciò che resta di Myrddin
Fu mago e artefice di epoche
e a Camelot diede un Re!

Fu nella grotta di cristallo
ch'egli comprese il suo tranello
falso amore aveva offerto
allo stregone vecchio e stanco
Fu in quella gabbia di cristallo
che disse addio a questo mondo
il profeta, moribondo
Track Name: Crown to the Crowds
Secular oppression of mankind
forced in a void
of hunger and silence
Thraldom has been part of our mind,
immemorial grief
is crying for vengeance

Nourishing our enemy we are
snake in our bosom
the Leviathan rising
Slavery has imprinted us with scars
repression will not last
the emmets are waking

Crown to the crowds
Kings down their thrones
One day the world will refuse their control
All shall be kings
slave of no one
subject of freedom

Kingship has decided over us
disguised as a kind
of participation
securing the stillness of the mass
prosecuting itself
through blood and election

Our word has been hidden in the dark
identifying the enemy outside
The seal of the king the owning mark
has been impressed
in wax and flesh

The destiny of power is to fall
freedom is our trail
it's our duty to follow
So you people hear my call
The battle has begun
it will end with the fall of gods

No more kings for us all
Sharpen your swords,
for tonight blue blood they will shed
This shall be our glorious dawn
These streets will see the crowds tear the
crown from the royal head
Track Name: Panserbjørne
Every ruinous paw
could cut a vulgar iron blade
every dreadful touch
could overwhelm an entire platoon
his armour forged
with a metal from the sky
a gear is the soul of a Panserbjørn

Lies in the heart of all storms
the frostbitten fortress of Panserbjørne
the hammers, the screams and the roars
of the coldest wind and warmest forge

Bred onto frozen lands
armored death, merciless tanks
warriors forging their own souls
in an hellish smithy of starfall

This is why a bear is born
to wear the skin of a Panserbjørn

Strong innate sense for deceit
no feint, no trick
their metal can't even be breached
by the subtlest coward's falsities

This is why a bear is born
to wear the skin of a Panserbjørn

He came back to claim his throne,
renegade prince, true savage will
to face a human behaving king
abomination of mannerism

Lost in obsession and lust
through a little child he couldn't see
(Silvertongue)
Stately and proud he could win
but he paid with life his vanity,
'cause

This is why a bear is born
to wear the skin of a Panserbjørn
Track Name: The Endless Well
This is not enough
All falls inside me
A way to bright unknown

ENDLESS WELL

Light through the piece of wood
Reversing Heaven’s rays
What can fill my pit?

ENDLESS WELL

Embracing my life
Between tears and smiles
My well is endless

NOW AND FOR ETERNITY

Burnt by light and
Vast as the ocean
I am blessed by a curse
I'm a witness of other worlds
Deep as Hell,
A well an endless well
Track Name: Awakening
Spell of the undone
cast the senseless
hymns in silence
rise from nowhere

Leak in the order
woeful anthem
summons echoes
of the submerged

beneath the ice
and the fire
‘neath the rock
an empire

of broken beings
and betrayed
their song rises
from the underneath

Wretched and hopeless
rotting dreamlands
they have found out
there’s no healer

fooled by appearance
rotting dreamers
they are bound
to their nightmares

Now I can see them
feel the hatred
feel the pain
in their essence

Now I can see them
in the mirror
I am nearest
to the bottom of all

All is fading to the sunrise
nothing but what I used to be
An endless night of light and dusk is
over by now, I am awake

The spell is undone
by the heartless
world of silence
and enslaved

Back to the order
I am saved
from the deep
of my conscience

The passage is open
know the danger
if you go through
do remember

Let the sun rise and
fade the dreamlands
dreams do never
never end

A tragic dawning to all my travels
back to the world that I despised
A troubled night of eerie and awe is
over by now, I am awake

"Dalle basse e dall'alte regioni,
spiriti erranti, salite, scendete!"

In sempiterna oscurità
il sognator fallito sta
il sognator compiuto sa
che finire dovrà
Il suo risveglio giungerà
il suo sogno rimarrà per sempre là
per sempre vivo là
sempre vivo

Là, ben celato alla realtà
il sentier perdurerà
sempr'aperto per chi sa
che tornare dovrà
Al suo mondo riederà
se la via ricorderà potrà tornar
sarà il suo nido
il suo nido

Vive le valli forgiate per me, tra le cime dei monti di antica ed austera beltà
Là, la via ei ritroverà
La via ei ricorderà
La via, la via, la via, trovar

Io temei di naufragar
un terribile fragor
d'improvviso ogni color
divorato dal ner
io fui preso dal terror
ed a monito color
che avean fallito
'vean fallito

Incubi i sogni forgiati da me, puniran l'abbandono di ogni realtà
Preda l'uomo del suo io
Preda l'uomo del suo mito
Destar, realtà, destar, realtà

Desto infine, egli sa che tornerà ma non potrà restar!
