"Revelations" as written by and Herman/theart Li....
Coming down from the mountain on high
Towards the battle we go side by side
Our hearts are filled with honour and pride
Cause we know our time has come

Silent voices down from below
Rising up through the ice and the snow
Ancient angers cast upon all
Through the lands of the slain

Through the dark night and through the rain
Fighting machine we have risen again
Stronger than all the world we arise...

Stand and fight, join the light
Into the battle with power and might
Sound the guns, raise the cannons of war...

With the North Star to guide us
We ride on the sky
Blazing up through the heavens
Like eagles we fly
And the horsemen shall come
They will judge all your lives
Revelations will now be unveiled

Darkened night set to the swallow the light
All is lost there's no one left to fight
Overpowered by the glory and might
Of the ones who stands tall

Fallen heroes scattered around
Deafened ears opens up to the sound
Painful cries rising forever more
From the victims of life and of war

Through the dark night and through the rain
Fighting machine we have risen again
Stronger than all the world we arise...

Stand and fight, join the light
Into the battle with power and might
Sound the guns, raise the cannons of war...

With the North Star to guide us
We ride on the sky
Blazing up through the heavens
Like eagles we fly
And the horsemen shall come
They will judge all your lives
Revelations will now be unveiled

No more hope of freedom
Our dreams are washed away
The second age is coming
The dawn of a new day
The judgement stands before us
The second king will rise
Our swords will shine with honour
As hatred fills the skies...

With the North Star to guide us
We ride on the sky
Blazing up through the heavens
Like eagles we fly
And the horsemen shall come
They will judge all your lives
Revelations will now?

With the North Star to guide us
We ride on the sky
Blazing up through the heavens
Like eagles we fly
And the horsemen shall come
They will judge all your lives
Revelations will now?
Revelations will now?
Revelations will now be unveiled

    General CommentIt basically talks about its title; Revelations, right?

    Kick ass intro and solo, and the way the singer does the chorus and bridge is just pure hax.


    Offtopic: lol, how many people have fade_to/fade_2 in their name? xD

    General CommentIs it just me or does this song makes Bibical references?

    "Judgement stands before us
    The second king will rise"

    Perhaps from the Book of Revelations...which means the song was inspired by it.

    "And the horsemen shall come they will judge all your lives"

    The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse anyone?

    Biblical or not, awesome song and I LOVE how they say "HATRED FILLS THE SKYYYYYYYY!!!" on both counts.

    General CommentMost of the time when someone ascribes religious meaning to a Dragonforce song, I sort of cringe. But this song does seem to be about the book of revelation.

    "Blazing up through the heavens like eagles we fly
    And the horsemen shall come they will judge all your lives
    Revelations will now be unveiled"

    It's a clear reference to the four horsemen of the apocalypse and the final judgement in that book.

    "The second age is coming
    It's the dawn of a new day

    Judgement stands before us
    The second king will rise"

    In Revelation the second age comes after a final climactic battle with heaven and hell (how else would you end it? Even if you're not religious Revelation is a good read as fiction). So the song is about God's angels fighting the forces of hell. Pretty standard fantasy battle song other than coming from the bible.
