"Angelheart, Ravenheart (Act I: Before The Bleeding Sun)" as written by Jarmo Tapio Kylmanen, Jarmo Kalervo Puolakanaho, Risto Tapio Ruuth, Petri Kristian Sankala, Janne Heikki Tapani Tolsa, Altti Pekka Henrik Vetelainen, Jarmo Kalervo Puolakanaho, Risto...
The last ray of the dying sun
Was born from the sacred flames
He was meant to be the one
The one to rule the light
The forgotten son of wind
The seventh king of the dawn

He was called by the name, Angelheart

The second tide had turned
Completing the nightly sign
To start a change to come
Blood of a child was shed
To stain the soul so pure
To wake the heart of the fallen

He started to live again, Ravenheart

Guardians of light
Oh saints, we believe in
Please come with your might
Can't watch him dying
The heart of the night is choking the flame
Can't watch him dying

Oh saints, we believe in, he's wasting away
Can't watch him dying
He's losing his wings and the crown of the dawn
Can't watch him dying

The new time has begun

Unholy troops of the night
Break the back of the light
Your master orders you
Kill the hordes of the sun
Let the dark age be begun
Your master orders you

Let the blade of dark incise
As the moon of blood arises
Your master orders you
Before the bleeding sun
We'll toast to the fallen one
As the black dawn greets up all

Guardians of light
We have to know slaves for the end of time
We have to know writings of the sacred signs

    General CommentThis is THE best Eternal Tears of Sorrow song, period.

    It's extremely meaningful, flowing with emotion, melodic, and powerfal, all at the same time.

    I believe that entails a battle of good versus evil, and a great hero/angel that is being slain by dark forces, perhaps a parallel to modern society and it's draining effect on those who are deep and strive for massive change.

    My InterpretationI think is about an epic battle between light and darkness.
    A great hero, Angelheart, is born. He is meant to be king of light, or the dawn (representing the birth of light, as it seems from Earth).
    But a powerful dark being is awakened ("Blood of a child was shed": human sacrifice?), maybe sleeping since before Angelheart's birth, or even inside himself ("To stain the soul so pure"). He lives again/awakes. This reminds me of the death-like sleep of Cthulhu.
    Then the hero falls. He is dying, and the choir claims for help from the "guardians of light".

    <~-~-~-~-~The new time has begun~-~-~-~-~>

    Now, a dark master exhorts his troops to "kill the hordes of the sun" and to finish Angelheart, so they could "toast to the fallen one".

    The choir (people of earth?) knows their doom. The darkness consumes all.

    [sorry for my bad grammar :D]
