    Friends!
    The first song from Seventh Wonder's new album is out!
    It's simply VICTORIOUS!

    The official release date for 'Tiara' is: October 12th, 2018.
    TIARA will be released on CD as well as a double vinyl LP. Some special limited bundles will be made available through Frontier’s webstore (see link at the bottom).

    The tracklist for the new concept album is as follows:
    1. Arrival
    2. The Everones
    3. Dream Machines
    4. Against The Grain
    5. Victorious
    6. Tiara's Song (Farewell Pt. 1)
    7. Goodnight (Farewell Pt. 2)
    8. Beyond Today (Farewell Pt. 3)
    9. The Truth
    10. By The Light Of The Funeral Pyres
    11. Damnation Below
    12. Procession
    13. Exhale

    This is the first studio album to feature Stefan Norgren on drums, who had this to say about the song released today:
    “This was originally a pretty cool keyboard riff that got intertwined with that opening guitar part to create a really nice dual riff of sorts. It has a ton of sweet rhythmic patterns that are loads of fun to play. When I first heard it with Tommy's stuff on it, it really blew my mind!”

    Andreas Blomqvist also speaks about the new song:
    “Victorious was the first song on the album that was completed. It wasn’t written first, but it was the first one we sat down and wrote the lyrics for, so it is special to us. I am thrilled to finally be able to share a song off of Tiara with you!”
    He adds:
    “Probably half of the songs on TIARA sound like what you are all used to, and maybe about half contains some new flavors”.

    It's really a victorious tune. Pure magic.
    I knew it well that the new album would have come out someday between Kamelot's european and japanese tour.

    Hi guys!
    I thought I'd try to complete the lyrics for "Victorious".
    Even though they are incomplete, the lyrics give some insight into what the album is about, especially the role of the girl from the album cover.
    Some parts I simply could not form into sentences, and have left for others to fill out. I've also marked parts with "?" that I am very unsure of and that are most likely wrong.
    Feel free to help out wherever possible, it would be interesting to hear others' interpretations.

    Seventh Wonder - Victorious (Lyrics so far):

    Verse:
    One man to sail the oceans
    One man to leave the ground behind
    Deep down we strive to be more than we are
    Tamed the fire and the world was ours
    We built it up/all reaching for the heavens
    ?A pyre('s)? known/Upon stones to stand the test of time - One track off the album is titled "By The Light of The Funeral Pyres", which is what I believe is referenced here.
    We brought light to shame/shape the sun
    And we always found a way

    Pre-Chorus:
    I dont care, if you dont care
    'Cause our dreams have always taken us where
    Amazing fantasies become today's realities

    Chorus:
    We will be victorious
    In the blink of an eye we set to the sky
    We'll be glorious, victorious we rise
    Cause we're gonna ?? be ??
    Won't stop till we are victorious

    Verse 2:
    One man to split the atom
    One man to tread another world
    Inside, we know that we have what it takes
    Faster, stronger, higher than before

    The spoken word
    Then ink and paper
    Spelling beauty for eyes and ears
    All this when we stand together
    When we stand as one

    Pre-Chorus 2:
    And I dont care, if you dont care
    Cause our dreams have always taken us where
    Amazing fantasies become today's realities

    Chorus 2:
    We will be victorious
    In the blink of an eye we set to the sky
    We'll be glorious, victorious
    Somehow we'll rise to the challenge

    Bridge: From now on the lyrics shift in focus. They start to revolve around a girl, likely the one seen on the album cover.
    Apparently she is special and thus sent off into space to sway someones mind, probably another civilization.


    The fate out smiles
    Confidence is fleeting
    Embrace this plight/lifeform/blightfall
    (Her?) And yield before the fire
    Understand this time we cannot make it alone
    Our failure is forever
    Through wind and rain
    Pushing through the masses
    When against the grain
    As she opened up our eyes for us to see
    Crying out an angel to reveal her mystery

    Bridge Cont.:
    A saviour in the dark
    I know she can sway their minds
    Promise she will never let us down
    Of course she will defend our way of life

    Chorus 3:
    Here we stand before the world
    The solution is simple
    The answer is her
    We'll send one of us
    For all of us
    To ?ensure? that our voice will be heard

    Chorus 4 (key-change): There is a suddle change of subjects here, shifting from we to she, which makes a huge difference for the story.
    We will be victorious
    In the blink of an eye
    She was sent to the sky
    We'll be glorious
    Victorious we rise
    Yes, we're gonna be victorious

    Credits to reddit user RubyFlight, who helped me fill many of the blanks. Cheers:


    One man
    To sail the oceans
    One man
    To leave the ground behind
    Deep down
    We strive to be more than we are
    Tamed the fire and the world was ours
    We built the earth
    Reaching for the heavens
    A part of us knows to stand the test of time
    We brought light
    To shame the sun
    And we always found a way

    And I don't care
    If you don't care
    Cause our dreams have always
    Taken us where amazing fantasies
    Become today's realities

    We will be victorious
    In the blink of an eye
    We' re sent to the sky
    We'll be glorious
    Victorious we rise
    Cause we're gonna be worth something
    We are victorious

    One man to split the atom
    One man to tread another world
    Inside we know that we have
    what it takes
    Faster stronger higher than before
    The spoken word
    The ink on paper
    Spelling beauty for months and years
    All this when we stand together
    When we stand as one

    I don't care
    If you don't care
    Cause our dreams
    Have always taken us where amazing fantasies
    Become today's realities

    We will be victorious
    In the blink of an eye
    We are sent to the sky
    We'll be glorious
    Victorious
    Somehow we'll rise to the challenge


    With fade out smiles
    Confidence is fleeting
    Embrace this life
    And yield before the fire of the stands
    This time we cannot make it alone
    Our failure is forever
    Through wind and rain
    Pushing through the masses
    When against the grain
    As she opened up our eyes for us to see
    Crying out an angel to reveal her mystery

    Oh savior in the dark
    I know you can save their minds
    Promise she will never let us down
    Of course she will defend our way of life

    Here we stand before the world
    The solution is simple
    The answer is her
    We'll send one of us
    For all of us
    To ensure that our voice
    Will be heard

    We will be victorious
    In the blink of an eye
    She'll be sent to the sky
    We'll be glorious
    Victorious
    We rise
    Yes we're gonna be
    Victorious

    This is my go at some parts of the lyrics.

    "[...] Upon stones to stand the test of time"

    "We will be victorious
    In the blink of an eye
    We ascend to the sky"

    "The spoken word
    Ink and paper
    Stunning, beautiful, eyes and ears"

    Awesome input! Definitely helped me fill out some of the blanks.
    E.g. I now hear "Become today's realities" in the first pre-chorus, but I don't really the second time.
    Nevertheless, it is by far the best suggestion.

    My two cents...

    In the 2nd verse I hear
    "The spoken word
    The ink on paper
    Spelling beauty for eyes and ears"

    Upd: After listening for one more time I think it's "Embrace this plight" in the bridge...

    In the first stanza, I think a verse is "Poems known to stand the test of time" (it also fits better with everything else they talk about there)

    LYRICS TO "VICTORIOUS"!

    Like I said on FB, thanks to everyone who contributed in the joint endeavour to decipher the lyrics to "Victorious"!
    You all came very close, well done [​IMG] !

    "VICTORIOUS"

    One man to sail the oceans,
    one man to leave the ground behind
    Deep down we strive to be more than we are
    Tamed the fire and the world was ours

    We build it up, reaching for the heavens
    A pile of stone to stand the test of time
    We brought light to shame the sun
    and we always found a way

    I don’t care if you don’t care
    Because our dreams have always taken us where
    amazing fantasies become today’s realities

    We will be victorious
    In the blink of an eye we ascend to the sky
    We’ll be glorious, victorious we rise
    ‘cuz we’re gonna be and won’t stop ‘til we are victorious

    One man to split the atom,
    One man to tread another world
    Inside we know that we have what it takes
    Faster, stronger, higher than before

    The spoken word, the ink on paper
    Astounding beauty for the eyes and ears
    All this, when we stand together
    When we stand as one

    We will be victorious
    In the blink of an eye we ascend to the sky
    We’ll be glorious, victorious and somehow
    we’ll rise to the challenge

    But fading are our smiles
    Confidence is fleeting
    Embrace this plight, and yield before the fire
    Understand, this time we cannot make it alone
    our failure is forever
    Through the wind and rain
    Pushing through the masses
    went against the grain
    as she opened up our eyes for us to see
    Crying out, an angel to reveal her mystery
    A savior in the dark,
    I know she can sway their minds
    I promise, she will never let us down,
    Of course she will defend our way of life

    Here we stand before the world
    The solution is simple, the answer is her!
    We’ll send one of us, for all of us
    and the truth in her voice will be heard

    We will be victorious
    In the blink of an eye she’ll be sent to the sky
    We’ll be glorious, victorious we rise
    Yes we’re gonna be victorious
