Hahaha, I'm fairly sure he says "ride on", too!

It seems like something you would say to a messenger (or sth a messenger would shout to his horse!)

*thumbs up for battle metal army!*

Also agreeing that It's probably "Ride on". Sure sounds like it to me at least.

Question about Sahti-Waari

I just bought Battle Metal album and while I looked at the lyrics, I noticed something strange in Sahti-Waari: There are the part where they supposed to sing: Nyt täyttyy mahlainen malja etc. WHERE THE HELL DO THEY SING THAT? Or if they don't, why put such lyrics there then.

Answer fast, plz

Originally the idea was to have more vocals on the parts where you now hear the flute melody, but it worked better in the end without, leaving only the choir part.

No, but the lyrics were already written and it made sense to still print them in the booklet.

I am actually surprised no-one noticed this before.

I was about to tell the threadstarter the exact time of the chanting, but I never paid much attention to the lyrics in the song tbh, because the instrumental parts are so great.

I'm sorry if this has already been answered ... I coudn't find it :]
We used a step in singer for a couple of parts on the album - mainly for conceptual reasons - of which this "Russian" part is one. The other is the "Andrew Lloyd Webber" -part in Five Hundred And One. It's a guy called Antti Paranko, and he's credited in the liner notes. However, this is not Russian, but some pseudo-slavonic language we had him make up in the studio while we were helping him out in finding the right mood by doing cossack-dancing on the other side of the window. I wanted it to sound Slavonic without bearing through any clear message. Actually, if you listen carefully, you can hear something that sounds like "vodka" a couple of times in that short snippet, ...even if in a historical perspective this word and drink is obviously of a much more modern era.

I've got another question about a couple separate lyrics. Hopefully someone can shed some light on these for me.

In "A Portage to the Unknown" there is the following verse, which references Plato's earth transparent, and what seems to be a Platonic solid. Could anyone elaborate on this for me?

"Six regular edges and six vertices
Six equilateral triangles
Six square faces in another direction
Plato's earth transparent"
------------------------------------------------
I take it that "The Heart of Turisas" was the precursor to "Battle Metal"?
------------------------------------------------
In "The Dnieper Rapids" did anyone else assume The Insatiable One was the river itself, or did they believe it was one of the Turkics?
------------------------------------------------
What does Rex Regi Rebellis mean?
------------------------------------------------
And finally, since I have so many questions. What is the general idea of Rex Regi Rebellis, sadly I don't understand Finnish. I'd really love to know what the song is all about though.

That's it! (for now)

For that single question, I failed hardcore at reading. The single longest post on the first page I didn't read. Wow. Hah.

Anyone have answers to the others though?

Online lyrics sources fail once again. The net seems to be filled with "wrong" lyrics. This is what's printed in the booklet.

Six square faces in another dimension

Plato's earth is in indeed one of the Platonic solids - a cube. The whole verse refers to a geometrical figure. And this figure carries a meaning. (Ps. a cube has 8 vertices...)

The song is about seven rapids on the river Dnieper (which ceased to exist after the building of canals in the mid 19th century and an electric station on the river in the 1930's). The rapids had different names and meanings in different languages (Slavonic, Norse etc.) also depending a bit on the interperator. The fourth rapid - and the most fierce of them all - was in Slavonic known as Nenasytets - The Insatiable.

Would translate "The king is rebellious towards the king" meaning "You are your own enemy". It's a reference to a historical novel by Zacharias Topelius' called "Surgeon's Stories" which the text for the Prologue for R.R.R. is from as well. It deals with the Thirty Years' War.

Thank you very much!

Question about lyrics...?

I wrote greek on a beginning but then I thought I was wrong and edited it, haha, guess I should pay more attention to my instincts :P

Thanks by the way for clearing that doubt, cheers!

Well, when I need lyrics, I usually go to www.darklyrics.com. I finf that 99% of the lyrics there are correct. Although there was a line missing in Miklagard Overture.
