New single of Gotland, released in 2015
This is a re-recorded version of the song "Adrianopoli" (from the album "Gloria Et Morte") with the new singer Irmin.



A hated man has to claw back his name
The glory won't be prorated
The emperor's legions were already stride
Firm and prepared man were setting the fight

Fight for fame! For the glory of Rome!
Fight for fame! For the East Empire!
Defend your land from barbaric aggressor!
The legions of Rome will triumph!

A big cloud of dust ascends from their way
A choir of scary screams rises
A rain of arrows relapse on the circle
The dry grass burns, provoke an acrid smoke

Struggle for freedom! (Struggle for freedom!)
We won't live anymore as slaves!
Clashing to conquer a position in this huge Empire!

Tension rises while the sun begins to descend
Immense cavalry ambush crippled horses
And disorder of men
Vain are the ways to escape
Veterans ready to sell their life
Run away the generals in the prey of loss
Fall the souls more perseverant

The Emperor mysteriously slaughtered
Darkness helps fugitives
The breakdown is always more imminent

The fading of the glorious Empire
Can be forseen at the horizon
The known world will change in appearance


released July 28, 2015
