The Alchemist

No... I do have many many lyrics that *aren't* titled starting with 'the'.. it just happens that this one is. This is probably our best speedy song, very heavy but melodic power metal. The aim of this was to explore a lot of old alchemic philosophy and visuals, including things such as astrology and the Tarot, within kind of a faith-based perspective,.... all of the above having distinct roots in the Church helps, of course. I always introduce the song as being about "a man of the arcane, with eyes open wide." Everything here is very allegorical.

-------------------------------------------

In death I rise!

I fight
To crush the phoenix,
To walk alone
To burn the bridges that bar my way

I live
To seek the truth and
Bring light upon it
I pray, be never led astray!

Seek and find, the way through the void
Break these astral chains
Now is time to conjure, destroy!
Magic, faith, and flames

Spellcraft
Light up the sky tonight
I've been praying, and
I've been singing, and
I've been waiting
For an answer
Spellbound
Look through the eyes of Christ
I've been searching, and
I have seen
I'm the last of my kind
I am the Alchemist

I think
Therefore I hunger
I hang inverted
I see this world through different sight

It seems
Decree alone will
Claim this Stone, so
Forsake the real, chase what is right

Seek and find, the way through the void
Break these astral chains
Reveal the signs, illusions destroyed
Under acid rain

Spellcraft
Light up the sky tonight
I've been praying, and
I've been singing, and
I've been waiting
For an answer
Spellbound
Look through the eyes of Christ
I've been searching, and
I have seen
I'm the last of my kind
I am the Alchemist

War and peace exists within me
The Elixir has been given to me
Pierce my flesh, now I fly
Into Orion's crystal eyes

Wisdom makes a deadly wraith
The truth shall crush your wretched faith

Spellcraft
Light up the sky tonight
I've been praying, and
I've been singing, and
I've been waiting
For an answer
Spellbound
Look through the eyes of Christ
I've been searching, and
I have seen
I'm the last of my kind
I am the Alchemist

yep..see first couple of sentences pirat It's actually our newest finished one. If you listened to the 'Symphony in Black' link I posted in some other thread, it's similar in that it's generally fast as well, but this one has more dynamic, light/shade, and harmony, as well as a more melodic rather than aggressive chorus. But most of the riff breaks are extremely thrashy (not in the punk thrash sense, but the epic thrash sense).

hmmm.. I can give you a link, but view at your own risk tongue



http://app.synclive.com?show/20414


Just wait for it to load, and you'll get a recorded stream of one of our shows..


I say at your own risk, because this particular show had HORRIBLE mix in the monitors, and so I was off key vocally just about the entire night. Ironically enough though, the new song (this song) sounded the best. It's the second one up, so you can hear a not so great version of it if you can sit through the crappiness that is the opener. Nothing is worse than not being able to hear yourself.... No

I wish I had some of my bands recorded shows still.. that reminds me, I need to try and recover what I can , if any of those form the people that have either lost the "tapes" or erased them... Evil or Very Mad
