"Drowned Maid" as written by and Olli Pekka Laine Esa Holopainen....
I went to wash at the shore
I went to bathe in the sea
And there I, a hen, was lost

I, a bird
Untimely died
Let not my brother
Ever in this world
Water his war-horse
Upon the seashore!

Waters of the sea
So much blood of mine
Fishes of the sea
So much flesh of mine

Such the death of the young maid
End of the fair little hen

    General CommentThis song is utterly beautiful. The lyrics are based on Finnish folk tales, and whislt they may seem a bit silly on page the utter intensity with which they're sung surpasses all those kind of thoughts. The really great thing about this song is the way the music creates such an incredible sense of atmosphere; You can see the bleak shorelines and dark waves. It's odd, but a lot of Finnish bands seem to be able to pull off the evocative trick very well, probably no more than any other country though, might be just what I've heard.
