"Angina" as written by Morten Veland and Morten Veland....
Through scornful declarence and lumnious eyes
The shadows enveil with the glorious night
Trespassing the sunset like thou hast before
Entreating the daylight to rage nevermore
Angina striking Elysium
A frail remembrance glorificates
The nightside-ascendance
Veiled underneath thy funereal skies
The winds they may haunt me in bloodredest skies
The moon may bewed the strangest of light
The clasp of indifference the conquering tide
The sweeping of daylight...my vigour's decline
Thy Carrion Kind
Angina strikes Elysium...a frail remembrance
Carrion Kind
My Carrion Kind

    General CommentEinar has written the lyrics for Heretique and Opus Relinque, so maybe those aren't meant to be a part of the story.

    General CommentI love this song. However, I do not know what it means. Can someone help me out? I like to know about what I'm listening to.

    General CommentI'm not sure, but I get the feeling of werewolves or vamps from this song...(luminous eyes, etc.) There are SOOO many references to night vs. day in this song...especially when he says daylight declines his strength!
    The latin word Angina is a medical term for "restriction". Elysium is a diffent spelling of Elysian as in Elysian Fields - the Greek idea of Heaven or Paradise.
    Soooo, I think this person (or vamp or whatever) is talking about the ending of paradise and the beginning of death for whoever he is stalking "Thy Carrion Kind"

    General CommentWhile I'm at it, here are the latin lyrics:
     • Ut te postremo Donare Munere Mortis
       "to present you with the last guerdon (reward) of death"
    Does anyone else here that he says clearly after the screaming sounds at the very beginning the phrase "that sounds good" ??

    General CommentI'll stay with my theory.
    Beyond the Veil is a story, a concept album if you like.

    The story starts with a girl not seeing the purpose of life, and commits suicide.
    She drifts trough the underworld in the Styx(it all seems to be based on Greek myth).
    The monotone grey agony of the river doesn't suit her, and she somehow is granted rebirth by braking from the stream and drifting into the Lethean river.
    She forgets her past live, and is given a new one.
    However, she once again endures life as a painful and uninteresting thing.
    Not sure how, but she dies again, wether by her own doing or of old age.
    This time, as this song indicates, she is send to paradise: the last relieving reward of death.
    The last two songs are kind of obscure in this concept.
    It would seam that she taunts the gods, and then wakes from the nightmare, which could be a metaphor for her life, or indicate that the previous songs were all a fictional story.

    Any thoughts?

    Lyric CorrectionLatin lyrics are these:
    "Ut te postremo donarem munere mortis"
    It's donareM and that's a line taken from Catullo's poem "Multa per gentes et multa per aequora vectus"
    it's a poem written for his dead brother

    General CommentI'm not sure that she kills herself. I think maybe she dies naturally. The first time she really regrets it and just wants to live again and then in a sequel of decay, i'm not sure but maybe she visits Hades who lets her live again. She definitely visits someone.
