    Rise my brothers, we are blessed by steel!

    I just can't stop listening to it! What a great orchestration! Sami vocals are like grenades exploding! It's got new Enska, traditional Enska, Turisas, Tyr, Amarth... I guess if those other bands stopped writing music right now, they wouldn't be missed. Though I love them too, I don't think there's much to be played after THIS!

    Song is great, thought the video came out really good. The 3d effects, editing, concept and location etc, I thought it was all planned out well and shows it was thought out.
    Looking forward to the rest of the album.

    Even my girlfriend loved the video :D

    Have only heard the song just one time and it's really impressive. Great to hear Sami doing solo clean vocals for once and growling aswell. I bet this song will be a great new live song for sure. Want the album so bad now. just 2 weeks left...

    Great song! Mix of old and new is really good. Also like the mix on the solo! Like the video too. Perhaps the best Enska vid yet imo.

    Tremendous video. The album continues to grow on me and every listen is better than the last. Hoping for a 2013 tour in the states!

    Anyone got any lyrics? I think I have about half of the song, but perhaps someone whose native language is English would be more accurate...

    This is my best shot... Parts of the bridge I'm sure are wrong. Awesome song!!

    Many men have crossed my way
    Promising peace or my soul to save
    But I already heard you
    I have seen what they made with their freedom
    But I, I have no need for your god
    The shallow truth of your poisonous tongue
    Brothers it’s time to make a stand
    To reclaim our lives
    Because all this steel can set us free
    *
    Rise my brothers we are blessed by steel
    In my sword I trust
    Arm yourselves the truth shall be revealed
    In my sword I trust
    Tyrants and cowards for metal you will kneel
    In my sword I trust
    Till justice and reason we’ll wield
    In my sword I trust
    *
    The sword that shivers in my hand
    Do you have the might
    To eat the putrid flesh
    To drink the blood of the true one to blame
    The time of change is here
    Avail your blade
    *
    Rise my brothers we are blessed by steel
    In my sword I trust
    Arm yourselves the truth shall be revealed
    In my sword I trust
    Tyrants and cowards for metal you will kneel
    In my sword I trust
    Till justice and reason we’ll wield
    In my sword I trust
    *
    Leave your souls to your gods
    Kneel, obey, follow their laws
    Diseased and decayed, cherish their fate
    This day I repay
    Your love for fear come fate
    *
    Your love for fear come fate
    *
    Omen build me a fiery falcon
    Pull your blade, a blazing shore
    She’ll never wait and may make war
    Rest my hands and come to pray
    But my life shan’t go to waste
    Grip the spirit that they turn on??
    Upon the point, the point of our steel
    *
    Rise my brothers we are blessed by steel
    In my sword I trust
    Arm yourselves the truth shall be revealed
    In my sword I trust
    Tyrants and cowards for metal you will kneel
    In my sword I trust
    Till justice and reason we’ll wield
    In my sword I trust
    In my sword I trust

    :worship: Great job man! "Your love for fear come fate" is probably wrong, as well as the whole

    "Pull your blade, a blazing shore
    She’ll never wait and may make war
    Rest my hands and come to pray
    But my life shan’t go to waste
    Grip the spirit that they turn on??"

    part, but other than that, I don't think there are any major mistakes. Most of it makes perfect sense. ;-)

    Hmm.. I've only listened once and I said afterwards it will take me a few listens to get into it more, but I was a tad disappointed on first listening

    First verse seemed to go on forever, I was just waiting for a chorus or change..
    The chorus is GREAT though, really catchy
    Same again with 2nd verse..
    Great to see a guitar solo in this song, Petri needs to show off sometimes :D
    Not a fan of Sami's vox, I dunno why.. maybe it'll grow on me.. I hope so
    The song order seemed a bit all over the place, I couldnt see where it was heading, and I couldnt remember where we came from.. one part sounded like a completely different song had entered the video by mistake..

    I dunno


    While writing this I had the song on again (my 2nd listen) and it did sound better. By tomorrow evening and another 10000 listens, no doubt I'll love it! Just giving my very first (and still raw) impressions though

    Thanks Crucifer, I think you're probably right, I just couldn't get some of those words to gel in my ears. Sam B - I actually had a somewhat similar reaction on my first listen, but it got better so fast. Only thing I'd maybe say is that the guitar solo was pretty short. On the other hand, I think that works fine for this song, because its very anthemic/sing along style. Either way I freaking love it. I like it more than I liked From Afar, even though I loved that too.

Sammi also said in an interview that this album will take a couple listens to really appreciate. Only thing I'd say about this song was that the guitar solo was kinda short, but on the other hand it really works for this song since it's very anthemic / sing along style. I love this band so much.

    Sounds like a step down from the brilliance of From Afar.
    Plods on for too long.

    Gaz, I think it's better than from afar. plus it's better than anything else out there. It's pure folk metal awesomeness.

    Another thing, I don't like Petri's singing the chorus in harsh vocals over the top of the clean vox. It takes away from the.. epic-ness of it

    This is the second time I have seen the video, and I really do like it. It is a great Metal anthem, really heavy and melodic too. :D

    The video is nicely shot, it is a good cutting from the band and the characters that feature in the video. It has a nice look. :)

    Lyrics:


    Many men have crossed my way
    Promising peace and my soul to save
    But I've already heard it all
    I've seen what they mean with their freedom

    But I have no need for your god
    The shallow truth of your poisonous tongue
    Brothers, it’s time to make a stand

    Because all this steel can set us free

    Rise my brothers we are blessed by steel
    In my sword I trust!
    Arm yourselves, The truth shall be revealed
    In my sword I trust!
    Tyrants and cowards, for metal you will kneel
    In my sword I trust!
    Until justice and reason will wield
    In my sword I trust!


    The sword that shimmers in my hand
    Do you have the mind to eat guilty flesh?
    To drink the blood of those who are to blame?
    The time of change is here, unveil your blade!

    Cling your souls to your gods
    Kneel, obey, follow their laws
    Deceit, subjugate, cherish their greed
    Disdain Verity, glorify futile fate

    O Old Man,
    Bring me a fiery fur coat
    Put on me a blazing shirt
    Shielded by which I may make war
    Lest my head should come to grief
    and my locks should go to waste
    In the sport of bright iron
    Upon the point of harsh steel



    :)

    haha i likes mine better but urs are probably just as close to right. damn hard to understand that bridge. I do like the tabs you mentioned for this song, but the end flourish to the chorus seems wrong to me.
