Hello, I'm new here on Cradle of Filth so please do not mock me okay? I've heard the song 'The Death of Love' (My absolute favourate by the way). I was wondering. What is it Dani shouts in between several verses. For example. "Prophecies and glory forge a massive disdain...(Unknown word)...For lying passive in the shadow while the enemy reigns". What is that word? And what does it mean?
Thank you for your time.
It is! I didn't know either!
That’s interesting and good to know. Thanks for sharing, will update my lyrics right away!
Hi, I'm new to the forum also. I heard the word loud and clear. It isn't "la pucelle" as was suggested. The growl is prophesy, as in:
Prophecies and glory forge a massive disdain - PROPHESY
Grammatically this makes sense, and two interpretations seem readily apparent:
* prophecies create disdain, so therefore let's prophesy.
* it could be a call-and-response like the Christian TESTIFY BROTHER, this is saying PROPHESY BROTHER.
Compared to la pucelle meaning virgin, I can't see anything in the song that relates to virginity (unless the king of heaven is referring to Jesus' virgin birth, which seems inconsistent).
That's just my thoughts :)
Joan of Arc was considered to be The Virgin of Orleans, so it definitely makes sense. By the way, does anyone know what choir sings in "Balsamic and Anathema"? I know the first line is "Tomorrow we'll follow a path of God", but I don't have a slightest idea what's in the second.
Thanks very much Ravio! Always wondered what that word was.
I would be interested to know that part is as well Faustus. Agreed about the first line, and the second line seems to end with 'forgot'.
Fair enough, I listened through it again and took note of the repeat of the same growl twice more through the song, and I have to agree that it was la pucelle. I swear though, just hearing it in that first context without listening through the whole song, it sounded like Prophesy and I would have said on oath that this is what it was.
I have a new understanding of the song now ;)
