Lepaca draconis nox Tarados

 

 

Song language:  Latin

Artist:  Therion

Red dragon from the first morning of time,
Red dragon of ancient depths of the mind,
Rise up from the abyss of ignorance,
Coil into the existence of the blind.
Morning star please bear your light,
Through the day to next night.
Fallen one who stole the spark,
Bring it into the dark.
O Typhon apep lothan
O drakon Typhon apep lothan
Morning star please bear your light,
Through the day to next night.
Fallen one who stole the spark,
Bring it into the dark.
Dragons of tomorrow flying to their babel of yesterday,
They open the seal of Sorath and release the eleventh ray

Song language:  English

Artist:  Therion

Translation:  Persian

Red dragon burning again and dragging down stars
And fallen angels down from the heavens to the newborn world,
To fulfill the prophecy and be the force to see.
Red dragon flying now and casting down stars
And ancient angels down from the heavens to the burning earth,
To fulfill the prophecy
And be the force in man once again, as it was in the beginning.
The diamonds glimmering in the darkness, to be the stars of the night.
Black pearls will shine so bright, of the draconian might.

Therion - Quetzalcoatl

One day in (the) Maya calendar
The Winter Solstice is open
Like a gate to the Plumped Serpent
For the Maya and the Toltec he return

[chorus:]
Sol volverá, en la costa vimos su luz
Quetzalcoatl
Oh Señor del Sol!

Ride on Quetzalcoatl and you will reach another day
When Capricon will change the world
Enter into 2012
Ancient forecast of the Maya will be true

[chorus repeat]

  • Image: Hubble Space Telescope image of Sirius A and Sirius B. The white dwarf can be seen to the lower left.
  • Sirius (/ˈsɪriəs/, designated α Canis Majoris) is the brightest star in the night sky. Its name is derived from the Greek word Σείριος Seirios "glowing" or "scorching". Sirius is a binary star consisting of a main-sequence star, termed Sirius A, and a faint white dwarf companion, termed Sirius B. Sirius appears bright because of its intrinsic luminosity and its proximity to the Solar System, the Sirius system is one of Earth's nearest neighbours.The system is between 200 and 300 million years old. It was originally composed of two bright bluish stars. The more massive of these, Sirius B, consumed its resources and became a red giant before shedding its outer layers and collapsing into its current state as a white dwarf around 120 million years ago. Sirius is known colloquially as the "Dog Star". The heliacal rising of Sirius marked the flooding of the Nile in Ancient Egypt and the "dog days" of summer for the ancient Greeks, while to the Polynesians, mostly in the Southern Hemisphere, the star marked winter and was an important reference for their navigation around the Pacific Ocean.
  • Sirius B is the twelfth full-length musical album by the symphonic metal band Therion. The album title refers to the star Sirius B. It was released simultaneously with Lemuria.
  • Concepts: Johnsson (Therion) said that the album title is a reference to the twin star to the ordinary Sirius A. The album makes references to ancient culture and mythology:
    • Kingu was a monster in Sumerian mythology. According to Enûma Elish, all human beings were created from his blood after he was killed by Marduk.
    • Son of the Sun was the title of Pharaoh Akhenaten, who preferred to worship Aton, god of the Sun, over all other gods. His reign was unsuccessful, and people believed that other gods had cursed him.
    • Khlysti was a controversial Christian sect in Russia. Grigory Rasputin, the major character of the song, is believed to have been a member.
    • Persephone is the wife of Hades, the god of the dead in Greek mythology.
    • Kali Yuga in Hinduism is a dark age of suffering, the final era before the end of the world.
    • Land of Punt was a mysterious lost kingdom in ancient east Africa.
    • Melek Taus is the supreme deity of yazidi, his common shape is a peacock's.
    • Dagon is an ancient Semitic god of the sea. He appears in many H. P. Lovecraft books of Cthulhu mythos.
    • Georgy Gurdzhiev was an Armenian mystic philosopher and traveller, an expert in yazidi culture.
