Ακόμα ένα τραγούδι “συγκινητικό στην απλοϊκότητά του”. Οι ξιφήρεις folk – power – death metallers από τη Φινλανδία [Ensiferum σημαίνει “ο φέρων το ξίφος”] τραγουδούν με τον μοναδικό τους τρόπο για την Τελική Μάχη. Από το άλμπουμ τους Unsung Heroes.

Yet another song “touching in its naivety”. The folk – power – death metallers from Finland [Ensiferum means “the bearer of the sword”] sing in their unique way for the Final Battle. From their Unsung Heroes album.

❝ Passing aeons, everlasting fight against the Evil
Their army grows on and on with the darkening horizon
I’m not afraid, let them come
I will never retreat
I will stand and hold my ground
Protect the ancient tree
Yeah
The defense is doomed to fall
With the world I used to know
Burning leaves
Turn to ash before my eyes
Crushed my dreams long gone
Burning leaves
Dead branches reach to the sky
The flame within me is gone
On the light of the last dying star
Serpents crawl closer
All five branches, cursed from the start
And roots are torn to pieces
Right before my dying breath
I lay my eyes to the sky (to the sky)
As an eagle spreads its wings for the last time
Leaving me, the oak, the grove
Burning leaves
Turn to ash before my eyes
Crushed my dreams long gone
Burning leaves
Dead branches reach to the sky
The flame within me is gone
Liekö enää päällä maan
Ainuttakaan joka muistaa
Lehdon tuon kauniin kaukaisen
Jonne tie vie jokainen
Kun kuolemaan vartija viimeinen
Keskellä liekkien ikuinen
Puu ja maailma ihmisten
Niin loppuu aikamme
Burning leaves
Turn to ash before my eyes
Crushed my dreams long gone
Burning leaves
Dead branches reach to the sky
The flame within me is gone
Yeah
The defense is doomed to fall
With the world I used to know
The defense is doomed to fall
With the world I used to know ❞

Enjoy!
