Opera IX: The Red Death

The Red Death lyrics:
The rooms are crowded the dances begin in the euphory of the
Party, the orgy frenetically takes place but the last room, the
Black one, is lonely.
Solitary presence... an ebony clock... the mute echo of the pauses
After every lugubrious stroke.
The black walls eclipse the room, the band interrupts an euphoric
Melody, wide open eyes under the mask are seeking after a veil of
Certitude, terro and uneasiness in the hearts, the strokes stop,
The music plays again the dances get livelier, a playful shouting
Spreads somebody has forgotten, to someone else if's only a fain
Memory, time goes cruelly by.
The pendulum-clock strucks midnight, the pauses are painfullly
Endless, the dances stop again, twelve long strokes call the
Attention to a lugubrious figure tall and slender wrapped in
A sudarium.
The mask represents the red death.
The bloodstained cloak, the broad forehead, a still corpse's face
Its glassy stare. It slowly moves with regal bearings as if it's
Stirred by a cold wind and passing it sows a cursed horror.
Pestilence among the masters, pestilence among the servants,
Pestilence among all the guests.
An ona a death carpet it victoriously disappears in the black room.

About Opera IX:
Opera IX was created in 1988 by Ossian. In 1990 they made the first demo tape "Gothik". After many line-up changes, the band reached a certain stability with Cadaveria's vocals, Ossian at guitar, Vlad at bass and Flegias at drums. The band's early "occult metal" was switched to a more atmospheric mix of Gothic, Death, and Black metal. The second demo, which contained 4 'cult' songs, made the band known in the entire underground scene; Opera IX then received a contract for a 7" EP, which came out in 1993. The first 500 copies were sold out in only 2 months. In the meantime the band realized their first video "The Triumph Of The Death" contained 2 videos; the great success obtained pushed the band to include it on the merchandise, even if it was conceived only for promotion.
