    how does a riff resemble a waterfall?

    it can invoke the image of a waterfall in you, though. thats something different.

    yeah the title means "the curtain falls".

    I always interpreted it both ways. But either way seems to work. The Drapery Falls sounds like a logical name for a waterfall... sounds magical :kickass:

    What about Black Rose Immortal?
    It could mean a Black Rose (flower) that can't die or Black Rose (to rise up) Immortal (forever). So, Black Rose Immrotal could mean darkness rose up and stayed there forever.

    Never seen it this way. Interesting. I would doubt so, but the name sounds even more black metal rebelzz this way.

    obviously a black rose immortal is a flower. putting the adjective after the noun is a poetic way of phrasing it. it's a good name, i always loved it.

    Well since that guy suggested the other idea, I'm purely fucking confused. I guess I'll have to check out the lyrics, but considering the type of writting and the poetic way Mikael writes stuff, I guess the flower would make more sense in fact.

    What about a black guy who became immortal?
