Za hradbami času (Behind the walls of time)

2017

The third album Za hradbami času (Behind the Walls of Time), which came to the world year and a half after previous album, honors the existing direction to the melodic symphonic metal. It brings new elements, and sometimes gets into other genres, especially folk-metal.

The album tells stories from ancient times, which are sometimes nostalgic, sometimes full of struggles. It narrate about love and betrayal, death and fear, and it brings a great range of moods and feelings, skillfully expressed by many instruments and original sound effects. You will hear ballads and epic opuses in which fascinatingly intermingles harp, dulcimer, scythe, anvils, Chinese flutes and other beside excellent classical instruments.

Album Behind the Walls of Time is the allegory of the city, where characters with unusual destinies meet. Lyrics refer to periods that have already fallen into oblivion or to the Napoleonic wars, and time plays the role of city walls that separate old stories from us.

Lyrics

Vím, co jsi zač (I know what you are)

I know your fear and I know your wishes
I am your shadow, your conscience
I know what you mean, I know why you're afraid to sleep

To return the time just a bit back
To take what's far away
Walk on with more than just with a smile

I know your dreams and I know your wishes
I'm your fear, your troubles
I know what you're hiding, I know what you think
I know where you're wandering

I know you well, I know what you are
You are just a flame that burns in my head
You are just my dream which escapes from my mind

I know your fear and I know your wishes
I am your shadow, your conscience
I know what you mean, I know why you're afraid to sleep

I know you well, I know what you are,
You are just a flame that burns in my head
You are just my dream which escapes from my mind

I know your fear and I know your wishes,
I am your shadow, your conscience,
I know what you mean, I know why you're afraid to sleep

Up

Krkavci (Ravens)

Behind the furnace I lay, I laughed at the plow
When the brothers plowed, I was sleeping hard
I'll put a goose in my belly, let it break
My only fear is that my belly is empty

Bohdanka, the ravens are flying - they're flying
Ravenous brothers are cursed - they're flying

We're black as coal, that's our punishment
The devil's snare entraps you
- The glue drops from your wings
Hear our stories and treat them
Do not end like us, living with demons in the head
- You carry poison in your beak


I will never share with others
I will thrust the coins into the chest
Mirror of silver, I look at myself
I comb my black hair with a crest

Little girl, your cheeks are red
Your white lambs, where are they grazing?
Is there a farmer at home tonight?
I'll come, I'll lie down on your bed

I'm the sixth, I thump in the table with my fist!

I wish your horse die, may the mare die
I wish your crops were not harvested

Hear our - your advice
Stories - I'm listening
Truthfully - I take care of them
They tells

You're my black brothers, you're rueful
You have succumbed to human lure
- Tempation is lurking on you, too
I'm a young girl, I'm a little curious
May I not become a shamed lady
- May the snares never (catch you)

Up

Síla vítězství (Allegory of Death)

I do not go to sleep, I do not measure time, I do not look back,
I do not waste my compassion, I laugh their prayers, I am unprofitable
I remain the only one who can go through everything, I do not ask if I can.

I stand on the roads, I lie in the beds, I walk unannounced
I stand by the misfortune, I laugh at the healthy, I am indifferent
I salute the children going by, I'll come back one day.


You can have a gold mine also a palace full of dreams
or you can be poor and sleep in the mud day by day,
I do not make any difference, everyone has only a few days,
anyway you will not take anything with me from what you would want.

The rich groan, the patients wait until I visit them too
I recite The lord's prayer, I put to sleep by my caress
fear before me, then the grief accompanies my quiet steps.


You can have a gold mine also a palace full of dreams
or you can be poor and sleep in the mud day by day,
I do not make any difference, everyone has only a few days,
anyway you will not take anything where we'll go.


Cruel and mysterious is my mission, inevitable
And once you feel a bit extra and alone, I'm waiting for you, we're an old friends.

You can have a gold mine also a palace full of dreams
or you can be poor and sleep in the mud day by day,
I do not make any difference, everyone has only a few days,
anyway you will not take anything at all with me.

Up

Hlas uvnitř (Voice inside)

Deep in the night sounds quiet whispering
a voice of unknown origin.
You're confused who is talking to you,
whether a friend or a mortal foe,
It's your teacher and it warns you and your deepest wishes oversees

You pretend you do not hear, you will pay for it one day
All your sins will bind you to eternal flame.
You are drowning in the lies, and the truth is put in chains,
you are playing such a foolish insane game.


It might offend you and make you cry sometimes rather sets your soul aglow.
Like a shadow overwhelmed by daylight all your fears just melt away,
When consciousness´s asleep,
the conscience leads the way, safely through a burning hell

You pretend you do not hear, you will pay for it one day
All your sins will bind you to eternal flame.
You are drowning in the lies, and the truth is put in chains,
you are playing such a foolish insane game.


That's the voice that's thundering, it will never betray you,
The only guard to see you keep a given oath,
That's the way, leading high, it's your guide on pathless roads,
That's the power that's emanating from you.
