Halo Dies, the wrath of God (Orphaned Land)

Metal condimentado con raíces culturales autóctonas, eso es lo que os traigo hoy con este tema de un disco que creo que ya puede ser considerado un clásico dentro del Metal, Mabool (2004), una obra monumental, es como si Lo que el Viento se Llevó se plasmase en clave Metalera, con la diferencia de que esto es una delicia escucharlo y lo otro hay que tener un culo de dimensiones cósmicas para aguantarlo.

Los israelíes Orphaned Land siempre han sido maestros a la hora de fusionar ritmos heavys con rollos folk, dando lugar a una especie de progresivo muy apetecible y degustable. Tienen clase, suenan muy bien y son adicitvos.

(The earth also was corrupt before God, and the earth was filled with violence.)

"Father thou art in heaven
Thy kingdom cries hallow lives
The sacred halo dies

You defied and turned your back
Upon our lord of Wrath
All faith you lack
You walk (upon) this beaten path"

All man shall fall as Abel fell to Cain
By fire, by storm, by hail & by rain
The sacred triad, the three that are one
Shall serve the word, thy will shall be done

Hell hath no fury as a God scorned
Unleash his wrath
he will let death be adorned

"I will cleanse the world with fire
Scorched earth forevermore
Purple tongues that burn,
shall climb higher
Seas of flame will crush ashore
Shed the blood of mortal man
The pains of birth are felt again
Reduce to none, thou art unborn
The end of man, human dethroned
All light is gone..."

The rage of the lord is ever true
You have been lead by the eternal deceiver
He is the life taker, and pain giver
(Who) dwells into the depths of darkened fever
There, as always, he lies, waiting - silent forever at the door
The wrath of God that has befell you
The servant of God - Jobe, the faithful beleiver
He turned into a shadow, all fear and shiver
Eve he drove astray and Adam to believe her
The serpent coils inside its lair
As if picking at an open sore
Forever man's sins shall
survive his earthly demise
Wallow in hateful ways & his life of lies
Eternal redemption they do not want nor seek
Short are their days & feeble
Naught but pleasure they adore...
(And GOD saw that the wickedness of man [was] great in the earth, and [that] every imagination of the thoughts of his heart [was] only evil continually.
And it repented the LORD that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart.)
