Valley Of The Damned Lyrics - Dragonforce

Review The Song (38)

On a cold dark winter night hidden by the stormy light
A battle rages for the right for what will become
In the valley of the damned a warrior with sword in hand
Travels fast across the land for freedom he rides

And the sign from the master on high screams aloud and across hear the cry
For the kingdom of fire and ice and the power to be alive
Be strong ride on, carry on through the war
Come along carry on, living for ever more

On the wings of death by the hands of doom
By the darkest light from the darkest moon
Crossing silent seas over mountains high
For we stand as one tonight

On the black wind forever we ride on together
Destroying your evil with freedom our guide
When the master will storm us
He'll stand high before us
Our hearts filled with splendour
Our swords will shine over the light

In the valley of the damned
Days breaks with golden strand
Over pastures green it glows
To where night returns

In the shadows faces appear
Warriors wearing full metal gear
All join together one and all
Before the glorious light

Rise up, gather around
Come and hear what is said
Use your senses open your mind
Don't you ever forget

On the wings of life, by the hands of hope
By the brightest light from the brightest sun
Crossing silent seas over mountains high
To the valley of the damned

On the black wind forever we ride on together
Destroying your evil with freedom our guide
When the master will storm us
He'll stand high before us
Our hearts filled with splendour
Our swords will shine over the light

On the black wind forever we ride on together
Destroying your evil with freedom our guide
When the master will storm us
He'll stand high before us
Our hearts filled with splendour
Our swords will shine over the light

The black wind forever we ride on together
Destroying your evil with freedom our guide
When the master will storm us
He'll stand high before us
Our hearts filled with splendour
Our swords will shine over the light

The black...

questionable lyrics... | Reviewer: CXC-190_VZ | 11/24/12

ya, dragonforce in general speak of honor, glory and killin' evil. but there are 2 exceptions I have heard. 1. smashing through da bonudaries w/ fire & fury. KILLING ALL THE MORTALS DOWN THE WINDING ROAD(fury of da storm).the most unsettling lyrics are 2. can't denie this fierce desire - resistance is futile- screaming for your life nowhere to hide nowhhere to hide TONIGHT WE CROSS THE LINE. YOUR INNOCENCE IS MINE... (scars of vesterday, bonus track ) other than that thier all gold, VOTD is especially catchy in lyrics, and i'm just plain addicted to the solo.

meaning | Reviewer: mj | 9/4/11

I think there is a meaning in this. There are places in the song where the chords are completely match with the the chords of the soviet anthem. So the song is maybe about fightink against socialism?

An amzing band 95 out of 100 as a group 99 out of 100 for this song | Reviewer: Kevin Drewett | 11/8/10

This song is amazing, well written, and above all else is and audible orgasm of amazing-ness. the lyrics are powerful and moving. They put so much soul and meaning behind them. I also want to comment about the solos. Unlike most songs where the solos get old these keep you enthralled till the very end where they then amaze you with a spectacular finish. Though many disagree with the topic of the music; the quality and clarity that they record with is unmistakably unique. This lets the listener go into a sort of personal state of bliss as they hear a genuinely good source of music that differentiates itself from the pointless and greedy tracks that most other bands make. So i say let this band last. they music is refreshing and vitalizing.

Did anyone look at the album art to determine evidence of religion? | Reviewer: Anonymous | 3/12/10

Well take a look at the album art for Valley of the Damned...
Well lets look at the ship, a very wide and short, great for shallow waters. Ok I think I can say its probably simmilar to a Viking ship.
On that ship a warrior, she has a spear and a shield. Well since this is probably a Norse Ship. Perhaps the one on the ship can relate. A Valkyrie perhaps, they are known to wield spears, and in some art shields of similar design are used. Anyway, huge burst of Lightning probably symblifying Thor. Though the single Raven... Makes me question. For Odin had two ravens... Anyway, just some thoughts,

DragonForce Truth. | Reviewer: Anonymous | 2/23/10

Guys, ok look, it might have religious undertones, but it's not. If you actually look it up, DragonForce was formed and their music was based on old videogames, and the classic sounds and the like, which is why most of their lyrics have to do with questing and defeating evil, because that's what classic gaming and stories are all about.

dragonforce ftw :D | Reviewer: Anonymous | 11/30/09

df its a very cool group, what they really talk 'bout here is, they say we have quests and we have to fight with effort and finish them, they never talk with religion points of views! thats what u gotta know

Good name to metal | Reviewer: DarkleSSR | 10/22/09

Something ive always liked about DragonForce is that they dont sing about crap like being satanists and im gona hang ma self and all that s**t they sing about fighting for glory and right and they are a metal band that do actualy have half decent lyrics
and i agree with all these guys its about finishing youre quest that youve been called to fighting for youre glory and to fight to defend youre fellow warriors

adventure!!! | Reviewer: Haydn | 7/26/09

this song has nothing to do with religion. It's about ADVENTURE!! reminds me of Lord of the Rings, and Final Fantasy. This song is all about a few warriors that are travelling miles and miles and having to battle evil to continue their quest so they can reach the Valley of the Damned where their master is.

so putting it simply :

there's this all powerfull warrior (the Master) that has travelled many lands to a place called the Valley of the Damned. War happens elsewhere and the Master calls his underlings to come to the Valley of the Damned, but there are evil things delaying their path so they have to destroy the evil. after a while, they are joined by Warriors to accompany them in their travels. Once they reached the VOTD they all gathered and told tales of their adventures.

That's in my opinion the TRUE meaning of this song.

it's not about religion!!!! | Reviewer: Anonymous | 7/17/09

i think this is not christian. i think it's more like rpg stuff. it's all based in that kind of stories (Final Fantasy, The Legend of Zelda, Chrono Trigger). only hear Operation ground and pound!! it's all base d in Zelda Twilight Princess!!! i now, they talk about gods and all that stuff, but 'When the master will call us, he stands high before us'it's very differnet to 'glory to the Lord'

The Dude is right | Reviewer: Anonymous | 6/15/09

This song is amazing and people only like through the fire and the flames (I'd almost say it's overrated). They don't listen to other songs by Dragonforce. As for are they satanic, I'd say no f***ing way. I am Roman Catholic and believe there is no possible way they are evil. They sing of victory, being together, Light/God, and destroying evil. Answer this: Does the devil want; people to unite, talk of Light, and have himself destroyed?

Syl | Reviewer: Anonymous | 4/19/09

I personally do not like this song as much as alot of their other ones. Through the Fire and the Flames, Fury of the Storm, Black Fire, those 3 are my favorites by them. But it is still a good song. And about the Christian undertones, I myself am a Christian, but I dont think they would be Christian because while they do have some lyrics that seem Christian, there are also some that seem Satanic(in other songs).. so I would say its just your classic good vs evil story.

The Dude | Reviewer: Anonymous | 4/16/09

This song is definitely one of the best that they've created! Everyone just recognizes them from the song through the fire and the flames but they have other songs that are just as good if not even better like with this one.

great | Reviewer: anonymous | 12/31/08

this is a great song, their first ever song, and i think their absolute best except for mayb eprepare for war, fury of the storm, or reasons to live but this is outstanding. however, i think u made ONE small screwwup in the lyrics because it said In the valley of the damned, a warrior with sword in hand
He travels fast across the land, for freedom he rides i think it should be he TRACKS fast across the land but otherwise great lyrics.

a quest!! | Reviewer: kevinxmaa | 12/11/08

All of the other comments have said thing about how this song follows a celtic scene. True. I mean there name is dragon force. I can't imagine and thing more celtic than the "Force of Dragons"
I'm Scottish so I should know.

Side note: *This is the best band ever*

Absolutely great | Reviewer: Dragonforce yea | 12/6/08

First time I heard Dragonforce music was, surprise, via Guitar Hero. TTFAF was great but I didn't know that all their songs are at least that great!! This is my favourite. Absolute great band and insane guitarists.. Love them.
