Oriana's Wrath - Aina



[Oriana: Sass Jordan]
[Syrius: Marko Hietala]
[Sorvahr: Thomas Rettke]

[Chorus]
[Oriana & Aina Choir:]
Today we ride!
Today all wrath abides!
We ride to win!
We won't give in
We define the meaning of victory!

[Syrius & Krakhon Choir:]
Today we ride!
Today all wrath abides!
We ride to win!
We won't give in
We define the meaning of victory!

[Syrius:]
Halt! My fighters,
But who is that there?
At the defensive line rides
A maiden so fair
But, no, it can't be!
Yes, it is she!
Do not charge ahead
There rides my love

[Oriana:]
Halt! My people,
But what is this now?
At the offensive line rides
A face that I know
But, no, it can't be!
Oh, yes, it is he!
He holds up his hand
And calls my name

Oh, yes, it is Syrius
The Son of the wicked Sorvahr
Soon you will see
Soon you'll agree
He's not as you would think Him to be

[Chorus]

[Sorvahr:]
My son, how dare you disobey me!
I sent you to destroy
Not to make peace!
I cast you down from the throne
Renounce your name as my own

You're truly a son of a bitch
I have no use for you
Now die!

[Chorus]

[Oriana:]
Oh, no
Please, no...
This has gone too far
I have had enough!
You have made us bleed
All our world a ruin
I will not stand anymore!
Now see how it feels
I cast you down from your throne
Renounce your name ever known

You nasty, sick son of a bitch
I've no use for you
No pity for you
Your reigning is through
Now die!

[Chorus]


Whoever said that women can't play a role in power/progressive metal? Well, actually no one did.

Shaaman videos

The drummer makes funny faces



It's really cool to see a guy play a solo and when he suddenly starts playing something familiar, everyone starts cheering real loudly.





Oh and check out this video by Dream Theater. As in really click on the video to go to the actual YouTube URL to see all the comments. Seems like this song has some really strong opinions for and against it. Some of them are priceless. Seriously, it's like a freakin' debate club practice inside there.
