Change The World 8. Pentagram 9. Eye Of The Demon End Of The World The Curse Burn In Hell. Ring Of Steel The queen sent out a message, she heard about the ring With powers that no man, that no man would dare to face The warrior headed north, riding through the night alone Searching night and day for the secret of the ring The secret of the legend lives forever The legend brought the queen together In from the darkness the warrior returned and the ring that he held in his hand, had the powers To freeze the world, while the queen would bring madness It's the ring of steel A new day is rising, the queen is laughing still The ring that she wears it's the evil itself The secret of the legend lives forever The legend brought the queen together In from the darkness the warrior returned and the ring that he Album) in his hand, had the powers To freeze the world, while the queen would bring madness It's the ring of steel The ring was founded again by the rightful owners strong demand The queen is laughing still out of control 2.
Dark Secret The sun fades away as a distant flame against the sky Beyond the clouds lies the undiscovered truth A realm still not known to man and the powers it possesses Now the time is soon at hand so beware Destined to doom by a force of the unknown the answer still not far away You all may wonder what lies beyond Passing away through the eye of the storm Sealed up inside so untouched, so secured In The eye of the strm lies the seceret alone In dark deep inside, a power so strong The sky starts dividing, and sends its wrath down to earth The fallen ones emerge out of the mist With powers never seen before, and the secret it withholds Another victim of the secret had come forth Destined to doom by Through the eye of the storm Test Of Time Standing lost at a crossroad Life is lying in my hands Faith is calling above us And who can tell when the world will end Time will choose only one man Only one must grow old We can both see it coming And we know, it's been told Passing through centuries My mind growing weaker Whose fate will be sealed The gift of growing old Only the strongest one Will make it to the end The final gathering is at hand The time has come, there will be one To stand the trial and the test of time Another lifetime is on the other side We're the last ones standing Only one must fall By the sword it settles And we know it's been told As the sreel rings through the night I strike the deadly wound We both see it's coming And I know I'm the chosen one 4.
Lost In Time I'm waking up all alone Not knowing where I am Is this a dream or is this time for real Will I forget about the past Or will I end this way If this is the way, how will I find it Give me a sign I'll carry on Still lost in time Forever Forever lost in time Standing here in a world so cold This silence makes me mad I wander endless miles to find the truth My future lies ahead I got this second chance 5.
The Vision Look through the darkness the vision of life then tell me what do you see. A dream you believe is a life you can't see something existis but can never be. You will wake up but not from a dream when you wake up it will be for real The feeling is real and so is the pain Wherever you go it'll be the same You cant believe you're trapped inside. Forever beware of what you dream The vision is so closed behind.
The vision you saw the eye of your mind a dark side of you never meant to be. The reason of being inside of this dream something you never tought you would see. The fury of madness the power of dreams You could be safe so let visions be You hold the secret the vision inside Keep the knowledge and seal it inside 6.
Warrior's Return Riding out in the storm Yet the night seemed so calm We were hundreds of men Side by side Still the winds blowing strong But sheltered by faith, we rode on, on and on Through the mist, we went on With steel at our sides We would make it to the end Side by side. Trough the rain and the mist Approching our goal, we would never, never surrender. We're standing strong There's a war left to fight Beware for the warriors return With swords held up high There's blood left to spill Prepare for the warriors return We could fight 'till the end Complete the quest 'Til the victors are standing alone.
Catchy choruses, catchy leads and catchy riffs infest this album. The first song is Ring of Steel, and I fucking love it. The album moves on with Dark Secret. Wow, what a fucking awesome song this is. Next track is Test of Time, which is probably my favorite track from the album. Its starts out kind of epic with a little bit of keyboard, but the guitar is always in charge on this album. Holy fucking shit guess what, Album), catchy as fuck vocals and not just the chorus.
The next song Lost in Time continues the streak of awesomeness as wells as the next songs. Every single fucking song on this album rules. I have to give extra credit to Eye of the Demon, its probably tied for my favorite song on this album.
Absolutely amazing, this album has no fillers. After being pretty much considered dead for half a decade, the metal world witnessed the sudden uprising of a lot of new bands modern power metal pioneers such as Hammerfall, Edguy, Rhapsody and Nightwish all released their debuts in devoted to keeping the old flame alive as well as adding new elements to the old formulas.
Johnny Lindqvist is the superior vocalist but he could never have replaced Zackrisson on this album. Finally, the lyrics deal with topics such as warriors, monsters and evil, which was the standard lyrical fare for power metal before the modern bands made themes such as Tolkien-influenced fantasy and even more realistic themes more popular.
Essentially this album sounds like the bastard son that Helloween and Iron Maiden gave birth to in and threw into a time machine set to There are 12 songs on this album. Every song has at least a few memorable parts. There are, however, two songs that tower a bit above the rest. Except for having 5 minutes of killer power metal with a catchy chorus and driving verse riffs, it also has a intro and outro riff that is probably the best riff ever written by the band.
When Zackrisson starts singing accompanied by that driving riff you know directly that the song is sooner or later going to explode into something big, and it does! Still, this is a no-brainer for fans of heavy and power metal. It contains everything we love about our genre in healthy doses. My highest recommendation. After a rather Dark Secret - Nocturnal Rites - Tales Of Mystery And Imagination (Cassette musical debut dubbed "In a Time of Blood and Fire", that unfortunately had a hard time getting exposure due to a half-hearted promotional effort by their former label, Nocturnal Rites hit the studio again with even higher hopes.
Although there were some flaws in the debut, a template of greatness had been realized and is further developed on this release. A rather sizable change occurred between the last album and this one, and that is the addition of master guitarist Nils Norberg.
With the exception of Yngwie Malmsteen, Roland Grapow, and Adrian Smith this guy is probably my favorite lead guitarist still on the metal scene. His solos are loaded with plenty of sweeps and flash, but are a bit more idiomatic and musically varied than that of most Album). At times I hear influences from Malmsteen, Vai, Friedman, and several other players.
In addition to the more technically and musically amazing guitar work, we see a much more prominent set of keyboard lines. It would not be until the next studio release that Mattias Bernhardsson would be added as a permanent member of the band, but already on this release his role is equally as prominent as the other 5.
The overall songwriting here is nothing short of stellar, on every level. There was a good amount of variety on the debut, but here the songs are so varied that if I were to go on the music alone and ignore the vocals, this would sound like 4 or 5 different bands.
Faster tracks like "End of the World", "Pentagram" and "Burn in Hell" sound very similar to early Yngwie cookers, but with a more balanced relationship among the instrumentalists.
The organ part gives it a slight Deep Purple sound as well. Dark Secret - Nocturnal Rites - Tales Of Mystery And Imagination (Cassette the opening and memorable anthem "Ring of Steel" is probably the greatest song ever put out in the Zachrisson era of NR. The harpsichord and orchestra line at the beginning is a rather charming hommage to Pachabel's Canon. Every song on here is amazing and you will find yourself forgetting that there even is such a thing as a skip button while listening to it.
However, some songs are so amazing that they tower above even the other classics on here. In conclusion, this album coincided with a flurry of amazing releases, such as the debut of Iron Savior and Gamma Ray's "Somewhere Out in Space". In the same way that NR's debut aided Gamma Ray and Blind Guardian in re-awakening the sleeping giant of power metal, this album functions as a testament to the glorious triumph of that giant over the rotting corpses that called themselves metal bands in the early 90s.
In all of my years of listening to power metal, i have never come across an album that so brilliantly portrays everything that was the glory of 80's metal. Tales of Mystery and Imagination is the only album of the 90's within this genre that has captured the magic of traditional Metal.
