Menyelimuti manusia setengah setan

Langkahku sudah terlalu jauh
Terjebak, dalam belenggu ikatan yang menyesatkanku
Bawa aku pergi!
Inginku kembali membawa energi
Dan lupakan semua jiwa hitam yang kelam

 Langkahku sudah terlalu jauh
Terjebak, dalam belenggu ikatan yang menyesatkanku
Bawa aku pergi!

 Jiwa hitam yang merasuk hidupku
Terjerat, dalam lingkaran hitam yang mematikanku
Bawa aku pergi!
Jiwa hitam yang merasuk
Dalam lingkaran hitam
Mematikan diriku
Bawa aku pergi!

Conversation with the album of the band from Poland is quite interesting, opened with a pretty slick by the instrument track titled Prologue. A track is like bringing us to enter a new era of Valinor.
Just a few seconds prologue walk, move directly to the track as well as the title track of this album is Hidden Beauty. The song begins with shouts loud enough. Black Metal atmosphere that I think there is a little element of thrashing death metal and felt in this song until some later songs such as The Voice Of Space, The Funeral, to A Hand Of The Dead.
This unique black metal music, Valinor success to explore with very good.
Until the sixth track, something different presented by Valinor. A beautiful instrument and made him want to play this track many times. Yes, this is a favorite track. Hidden Beauty to be very different in this version of the instruments, melodies seemed to be the lyrics, without the need to shout and vocals, this instrument has been talking a lot.
A moment to relax with a track that is fairly quiet, directly beaten again with Requiem. A track that is very thick felt death metal riffs. Continued to track The Bloodless Face, shit, the intro is great!! The music was different from the composition of the previous tracks. It's a favorite track after the version Hidden Beauty Instruments. the song is very interesting and very making of this song not want to get it over with.
The trip seems to have ended when the track Epilogue floated. (Azh/SoS)
