A GRAND MAGUS LE GUSTA THE SHADOW


Una de las nuevas bandas que más me ha gustado de cuantas he descubierto en los últimos meses son los suecos Grand Magus, además hace unos días pude verles en directo y lo flipé. El caso es que tocaron un tema llamado The Shadow Knows y tras escuchar la letra y luego documentarme resulta que la canción está basada en el personaje de La Sombra creado en 1931 por Walter B. Gibson.



Uno de los personajes precursores del género Pulp, si os fijáis en la letra con "la risa es la señal, romperá vuestro muro mental..." describe a la pefección al personaje que dio vida Alec Baldwin en una decente película a mediados de los noventa. Además lo de "La Sombra lo sabe..." siempre ha sido uno de los lemas del personaje

The laugh will be the warning
He will break your mental wall
Pulverize resistance
Then sacrifice you all

His solemn promise given
To never be a slave
To stand among the fallen
And fight beyond the grave

The Shadow knows
The Shadow knows
The Shadow knows
The Shadow knows

Stare into the hearts of men
All Misery Treachery

Through Secrecy Mastery Alchemy
Perish in his fire

The wight of procreation
Will never bring him down
Survive humiliation
And laugh when time is gone

The powers of corruption
Will shiver at his gaze
The weed of crime may blossom
But will perish in his flame

The Shadow knows
The Shadow knows
The Shadow knows
The Shadow knows

Stare into the hearts of men
All Misery Treachery

Through Secrecy Mastery Alchemy
Perish in his fire


gh will be the warning
He will break your mental wall
Pulverize resistance
Then sacrifice you all

His solemn promise given
To never be a slave
To stand among the fallen
And fight beyond the grave

The Shadow knows

Stare into the hearts of men

All Misery Treachery

Through Secrecy Mastery Alchemy
Perish in his fire

The weight of procreation
Will never bring him down
Survive humiliation
And laugh when time is gone

The powers of corruption
Will shiver at his gaze
The weed of crime may blossom
But will perish in his flame

The Shadow knows

Stare into the hearts of men

All misery, thievery, treachery
Perish in his fire

Through Secrecy Mastery Alchemy
Perish in his fire
