This is one of the most intense songs I’ve ever listened to.
It’s a story-type,melodic death metal song.
The story is very deep and it holds a couple symbols and messages that are astonishing.
Not to say that the screams are so full of life,it makes my spine shiver.
First time when I listened to this I cried.
It’s such a strong song;please listen to all of it,feel it,even if the beginning isn’t that amazing as it’s going to touch your heart.
A couple notes,but you don’t have to click this,it’s an extra:
It’s about the vision of life.
Tartarus is both a deity and a place in the abyss,something like Erebus but in the other dimension.
Tartarus,in this song,symbolizes the mentality of us,humans;our way of being.
This is the big hint I’m gonna give you,figure out the rest yourself.
I love it when the first time he says ‘‘Today is a good day to die’’ then the story goes on,the perspective changes and this line is changed into ‘‘Today victory is mine’’.
This line is screamed in such a way you can feel it echoing through your very soul.
The ‘‘I’ll never forget it,the day they came’’ part is the ‘‘voice of his inner regret’’,dead cold,followed by the ‘‘voice of sorrow’’ and then by ‘‘the voice of hope’’.Everytime,the tonality changes and so the background.
And in the end,’‘victory is achieved’’ with that insane scream.
In this case,’‘victory’’ is death itself.I’m telling you as it’s hard to understand the real meaning of this song.
There’s no end and no help to it,no matter what you do…
