about

Rahkoi Finland

A mad man with a box, containing a miniature electro-mechanic symphonic orchestra, a bunch of odd space sounds and some synthetic doohickeys of whirl and whistle.

Bombastic, epic, cinematic cheese combined with electronic mayhem and hijinks of dubious nature. What more can you ask for?

Track Name: Rahkoi & Maria Iselinn Sandøy - Where the Skyfire Gleams
- verse 1 -
I can hear the thunder
The light fills up the sky
The world soon torn asunder
It's time for us to die

- chorus -
Where the Skyfire Gleams
There I stand, there I lay
Let the blastwave take me away
Where the Skyfire Gleams
There I will see the light
My last and most beautiful sight

- verse 2 -
The steel won't protect me
No iron be my shield
No escape, no cover there will be
(From the) power my enemies wield

- chorus -
Where the Skyfire Gleams
There I stand, there I lay
Let the blastwave take me away
Where the Skyfire Gleams
There I will see the light
My last and most beautiful sight

Run for cover Heaven's Fury
Run for cover Ancient Terror
Run for cover Heaven's Fury
Run for your life! Earth Asunder

Hands reaching for the skies
Lungs burn with boiling air
Feet stomp all over the dead
Hell opens around us all... us all...

Spoken:
"There is no sight alike in the world.
A row of Skyfires, with barrels pointed upwards,
raining havoc upon their enemies.
Sky ablaze with ancient magic.
At that moment you realize,
"With this on our side, no way we can lose.""

Where the Skyfire Gleamed
There I lie and face the sun
With my lifeless eyes
All my thoughts burnt by the flame

Where the Skyfire Gleamed
Only ashes can be found
Underneath the sky
Sky ablaze with vengeance

Where the Skyfire Gleamed
Where the Skyfire burnt the world
Where the Skyfire Gleamed
Where the Skyfire burnt the world.

Spoken:
"There is no way I could've stopped it.
How anyone could've stopped it.
You can't run, you can't hide.
It will destroy everything.
But the last thing you see.
The beauty of destruction.
They say it almost makes it worth it."
