CANCIONES MÍTICAS (29) - CRADLE OF FILTH: "Her ghost in the fog"

En uno de los extremos más extremos del Metal nos encontramos el Black metal, sub-estilo caracterizado por su estética -a veces también ideología- gótico-satánica-misantrópica, baterías y guitarras ultrarrápidas, chillidos de toda clase y melodías muy ocasionales, conformando una oscura nube sonora difícil de distinguir a veces del puro ruido :) A mis oídos les inspira algo así:

Receta para crear un disco de Black metal:

-Cómprate un camión-hormigonera.
-Mete dentro todos los cacharros de metal que encuentres en tu cocina.
-Añade un puñado de ratas rabiosas.
-No vendrían mal tampoco 4/5 jabalíes con los rabos pinzados.
-Echa una radial en marcha.
-Conecta la hormigonera.
-Graba todos los sonidos que salgan (no importa lo que oigas, tú sigue) en mp3. Las canciones suelen durar entre 3-10 minutos.
-Cuando tengas 12 cortes, ya tienes tu flamante nuevo disco. Apaga la hormigonera.


Cradle of filth es un grupo en esta onda, bastante populares por ser más light y melódicos que la media (así que imaginad lo que hay por ahí xD); No son especial santo de mi devoción, pero tienen canciones que sí me gustan bastante. Esta es una de ellas:





"The Moon, she hangs like a cruel portrait
Soft winds whisper the bidding of trees
As this tragedy starts with a shattered glass heart
And the Midnightmare trampling of dreams
But oh, no tears please
Fear and pain may accompany Death
But it is desire that shepherds it's certainty
As We shall see..."

She was divinity's creature
That kissed the cold mirrors
A Queen of Snows
Far beyond compare
Lips attuned to symmetry
Sought Her everywhere
Dark liqoured eyes
An Arabian nightmare...

She shone on watercolours
Of my pondlife as pearl
Until those who couldn't have Her
Cut Her free of this World

That fateful Eve when...
The trees stank of sunset and camphor
Their lanterns chased phantoms and threw
An inquisitive glance, like the shadows they cast
On my love picking rue by the light of the moon

Putting reason to flight
Or to death as their way
They crept through woods mesmerized
By the taffeta Ley
Of Her hips that held sway
Over all they surveyed
Save a mist on the rise
(A deadly blessing to hide)
Her ghost in the fog

They raped left...
(Five men of God)
...Her ghost in the fog

Dawn discovered Her there
Beneath the Cedar's stare
Silk dress torn, Her raven hair
Flown to gown Her beauty bared
Was starred with frost, I knew Her lost
I wept 'til tears crept back to prayer

She'd sworn Me vows in fragrant blood
"Never to part
Lest jealous Heaven stole our hearts"

Then this I screamed:
"Come back to Me for
I was born in love with thee
So why should fate stand in between?"

And as I drowned Her gentle curves
With dreams unsaid and final words
I espied a gleam trodden to earth
The Church bell tower key...

The village mourned her by the by
For She'd been a witch
Their Men had longed to try
And I broke under Christ seeking guilty signs
My tortured soul on ice

A Queen of snow
Far beyond compare
Lips attuned to symmetry
Sought Her everywhere
Trappistine eyes
An Arabian nightmare...

She was Ersulie possessed
Of a milky white skin
My porcelain Yin
A graceful Angel of Sin

And so for Her...
The breeze stank of sunset and camphor
My lantern chased Her phantom and blew
Their Chapel ablaze and all locked in to a pain
Best reserved for judgement that their bible construed...

Putting reason to flight
Or to flame unashamed
I swept form cries
Mesmerized
By the taffeta Ley
Or Her hips that held sway
Over all those at bay
Save a mist on the rise
A final blessing to hide
Her ghost in the fog

And I embraced
Where lovers rot...
Her ghost in the fog

Her ghost in the fog

Más que a comentar la entrada, paso por aquí a saludar. :)

El Blogger no deja de dar problemas, entre ellos no poder comentar blogs con el campo de comentarios incrustado en la entrada. :/ Pero parece ser que algunos fallos se dan más que todo en el Explorer. Así que voy a seguir utilizando el Google Chrome para muchas cosas (cosa de costumbres utilizar el Explorer).

En fin, que siempre me paso por aquí, pero no había podido comentar. :P

Un abrazo!!! ;D
