Merry Xmas with a Jingle Bells Cover

Merry Xmas Everyone!! As part of our Xmas tradition, here is another Xmas cover song for you. We hope you enjoy it. It is a heavy metal version (cover) of the famous traditional Christmas song : Jingle Bells. Special Thanks to Minniva !!!

Download the song here: http://www.cdbaby.com/cd/orionsreign27


Music by Orion’s Reign
Video by Orion’s Reign
Mixing by Christos Nikolaou
Mastering by Orion’s Reign

This tune was written by James Lord Pierpont (1822–1893) and published under the title “One Horse Open Sleigh” in the autumn of 1857. Music historian James Fuld notes that “the word jingle in the title and opening phrase is apparently an imperative verb.” In the winter in New England in pre-automobile days, it was common to adorn horses’ harnesses with straps bearing bells as a way to avoid collisions at blind intersections, since a horse-drawn sleigh in snow makes almost no noise. The rhythm of the tune mimics that of a trotting horse’s bells. However, “jingle bells” is commonly taken to mean a certain kind of bell.

The new Voice of Orion’s Reign

dan

We have been working with Dan for quite sometime now, and we believe it was about time to officially announce Dan as the new permanent voice of Orion’s Reign. We are very enthusiastic to have Dan with us and we are looking forward to share with you our new material. Dan along with the rest of the band has been working hard, putting his heart into the new songs, adding another dimension to our music style. His passion and dedication are helping to come one step closer in delivering a stronger, solid and more Epic album that we are sure you will enjoy.

Who is Dan:

Dan’s passion for music began very early in his hometown Juiz de Fora in Brazil, but it was only in 2007 that he started to work seriously in his singing. Petra, Avantasia and Dragonforce were some of his favorite bands and his early influences.

Eventually Dan came to know about singers like Fabio Lione, Michael Kiske, Andre Matos, Eric Adams, and decided that he wanted his voice to sound as skilled and powerful. That decision made him start joining in various courses and music schools to master his voice, studying contemporary singing, classical singing, piano, music theory and music composition. Among other teachers, Dan also studied with Kevin Richards, one of the most respected rock/metal voice teachers in the world.

 

 


New Website

We are proud to announce the release of our newly redesigned Official Website. It has been crafted in order to keep all of you updated on what we are doing. We will continually be expanding our online content to bring you updated and relevant information about the band, and share new material with you. We encourage you to interact with us, and to share your thoughts.

Amidst The Battle

Born in times so hard and hostile, my hand could not stay empty
Had to live inside a world of evil man and beast
Each day a battle fierce, strong hand filled with steel
With every wound my fire grew to burn high in the mist

{Bridge}
Sing your battle songs
And then tarry not
Death is waiting us
Strike when the iron is hot

Hopes into my past
Free I will be at last
Under those ancient skies
Steel will speak no lies

{Chorus}
A man stands against fate the power in his hands
The power to wield his sword inside the unknown lands
Whatever comes my way will meet two flaming eyes
I bring the fire, I bring the light, I kill your lies

And when death comes close, raise eyes and look at his
Allow your eyes to be your sword and crush his bones and skull
The magic union of, life and death in your mind
Will break the bonds of mortal need, your sword shall lead the blind!

You know that if you cease to fight you will cease to survive
Fighting always to be the best wielder of steel
Lived the life with all detail, though the arrows flew around
In danger’s hands I would stand fast and heavy fight still deal

{Bridge}
{Chorus}

Nuclear Winter

The night is long, the planet cold
The shadows loom above my head
The fear of what will strike us next
Abandoned on a poisoned earth

We who survived went underground
Six months our eyes saw no sunlight
Who pressed the button, how and why?
It doesn’t matter anymore

{Bridge}
Oh the children of men
Waste their homeland
Brought death into life
Nuclear tears they cry

{Chorus}
Men die in pain, weakened eyes
Decisions have their price
Civilization’s lost
Now who will survive?

The war commenced, better in hell
The dust raised high and snuffed the sun
The nature now a barren land
When raindrops fall we hide or die

Darkness Comes

Here He comes, covered in black
A black light candle in his hand
He comes to claim your treasured soul
It’s too late for you to repent

His sickle shines above your head
You’ll cross a path from light to dark
Your end is nigh and darkness comes
So leave all of your hopes behind

{Bridge}
You are so weak with no will full of fear
you have wasted your life so live no longer
Your time has come no return from the dark
diving into the pits of blood and fire
Judgement is near as you’re falling from grace
see the end coming close you will burn in hellfire
Demons await they will feast on your soul
that belongs to the one who will show no mercy

{Chorus}
From a sea of pain, from a sea of hate,
see my life rising through the darkness
‘I will stand alone, I’ll reclaim my soul,
I will fight, I will win my life back

His name is Death, The Reaper Lord
The prince of darkness scenes him out
He rides his steed across the sky
He comes to read you your last rites

Your fate is sealed what will it be
End up in Heaven or in hell
But rest assured him if you see
Your place in hell is well reserved

A Way Out

My life was a long path
A dark trip into my own fears
I was angry
Afraid I can’t follow my heart, my love
In ruins I had none to embrace, despair
The end coming closer for me

{Chorus}
Oh Sweet pain my relief
From misery I flee
A gun in my hand
Shall I go now
Take my life I won’t do
I’ll stand tall again
Carry on, carry on
I will live on

A young boy is crying
My soul torn apart from the start
See my mother
She left me to die in the cold
No love, just pain fills my soul I’m alone
No hope, no reason to reach for the light

{Chorus}
Oh Sweet pain my relief
From misery I flee
A gun in my hand
Shall I go now
Take my life I won’t do
I’ll stand tall again
Carry on, carry on
I will live on

Oldead

I throw my red sword into the thirsty ground
Sit down under a tree and start to sing
All the colours of the world sing melodies in my head
And as the melodies fade out I realize I’m dead

{Bridge}
And I whisper my last breath to the wind
And the time stands still for the world to see

{Chorus}
Love is all around me, in the living and dead
In our golden temple she is worshipped and bred
As I’m falling down my body broken and bled
Love is all around me and my spirit has fled

Our life a journey into this world
Travel through time in the cloak of flesh
Brave deeds of painful sacrifice
Women with golden thread on a guess

Knowledge neglected when I was one
Now I see clearly that this is why
If I could live once again in flesh
I’d never yield to oblivion…

{Chorus}
Love is all around me, in the living and dead
In our golden temple she is worshipped and bred
As I’m falling down my body broken and bled
Love is all around me and my spirit has fled

Beyond Eternity 1 – The Parting

The manor miles behind my back
My woman there in tears and wait
Two days away from the old life
To fight I go in knightly oath

Her eyes are haunting my grim days
Last days of life for the battle slain
And still this forest that I’m in
Seems to have known my present pain

Five days of sad ride to the strife
With my heart bleeding from within
Will I ever see my unborn son
My duty holds life’s prison keys

My doubts a burden in my head
The opening of war a wrong
But once the word is issued out
No going back, onwards to our end

Our arms again shall dip in blood
Of brothers under Godly sight
An ancient crime as old as man
But blind obedience we’re taught

My eyes so full of anger wrinkle
With all the grief that is in death
So many questions tear me apart
Perhaps I’ll find the answers there

Beyond Eternity 2 – The Slaughter

Visions of glory lie ahead
In my ears rings the king’s old voice
In exchange for eternity
Your blood you have to sacrifice

So many knights will fight for gold
But I will fight just to be free
Life is the mightiest God’s gift
And living is courage’s deed

The battle raging on all sides
The butchered men in dying screams
The blood is painting my calves red
Who can find God in all of this?

My cries now wet my bloody face
As I walk forth and cleave brave men
Man killing man for power and gold
I look around with blackened soul

Over and over memories fly
Like fervidly rainbows they colour my mind
They bring me to my knighting day
When I was given spurs and name

But there I find a dangerous oath
That I spoke up so long ago
It spoke of servitude to a man
The man who now led us to war

To hold my oath I cannot skip
But why do men swear vulgar oaths
That keep them from correct results
When their life they try to decide

From birth I swore to serve a King
How can I serve a second one
He granted me a life to live
And everyone has the same right

Keep your blood in you
Stay alive will you
Fight with death if you
Have guts left you will

The arrow fire still decimates
But finally we win the day
The ironclad buffoons now smile
They fight to fight, not when it’s right

I boldly step to meet the king
I tell him that my duty’s done
My country now has been secured
But further on it is his war

Possession is the cause of war
Defence and war two different things
How could I mix them in the start?
The one protects, the other kills

I ride up to a lonely hill
I see the battlefield dyed red
Horizons open wide ahead
I’m not there now – I’m somewhere else!

Beyond Eternity 3 – The Vision

The secret garden will be on fire
The earth will tremble under desire
Oh rivers will run human blood
Nature’s defiance towards man will come

Each killing passed into our genes
Killing our species see where it leads
Oh storing your surplus they die
Your light snuffs out in mind

We people now are calling you
Sons of the ones who didn’t care
Oh knight ride from the past
Let hope shine at last

My duty is to protect the weak
Create a better world for all
No fear will live in my heart
Knights will rise from lands vast

Freedom honour and chivalry!

Beyond Eternity I will go I will see
Victory over lies on the earth paradise

The end is near!!

Freedom honour and chivalry!

Our blood was holy before birth
Our eyes were ever shining bright
The chains of slavery we’ll rend
Eternal knight you’ll live again

Last Stand

Darkened skies upon us
Fury of the outer space
Swarms of alien insects
Soon we’ll be attacked

People screaming in fear
Nowhere they can run
Hope is lost in their eyes
Countdown has begun

And where the need is dire
The space knights land
Their guns and heavy armour
Their stout hearts

Men who lived with honour
In steel clad
Hearts beat again when
Knights organize the last stand

The swarm of the aliens
Fights with frenzied hate
Guns blaze as red talons
Rip their trembling flesh

Men, guns and their foul foes
Fight with all they have
Embracing each other
In a crimson grave

But then the glory of the emperor shines in the sky
His armada appears from the red flaming clouds
Plasma cannons scorch aliens in beams of light
And the knights of the empire rush into attack

Chainswords grind and guns fire at the unyielding foe
And the tide is rising of battle and blood
Naked souls full of fury close in on the beasts
And they serve their good name by dispatching them all

Victory is now complete for the empire’s flag
We survived and defeated the swarm of our death
Long shall it be remembered, our furious last stand
And remind us that unity is our one strength

Siege of Ruad

Gazing from the mountains
Down to the green plains
Winds of freedom blowing
Victories await

Dreams of us all shining bright
Brand into our hearts
Our endless thirst is growing high
Dim desires reign

Heroes of old in my mind
I´ll live up to them
My ancient blade has never lied
Truth must now prevail

The ships are cutting through the sea
The sword of honour leads
Hearts are burning in the men
The knights our armies lead
Changing the world around
A noble way they fight

Building a world of light
Through action just and right
Godness and order may we seek
As long as our hearts beat

Building a world of light
Through action just and right
Godness and order may we seek
As long as our hearts beat

Siege of Ruad (Orchestral Version)

Gazing from the mountains
Down to the green plains
Winds of freedom blowing
Victories await

Dreams of us all shining bright
Brand into our hearts
Our endless thirst is growing high
Dim desires reign

Heroes of old in my mind
I´ll live up to them
My ancient blade has never lied
Truth must now prevail

The ships are cutting through the sea
The sword of honour leads
Hearts are burning in the men
The knights our armies lead
Changing the world around
A noble way they fight

Building a world of light
Through action just and right
Godness and order may we seek
As long as our hearts beat

Building a world of light
Through action just and right
Godness and order may we seek
As long as our hearts beat

The Guiding Light

Watching the sun coming my way
I am lost in the road to find life
I was searching alone in the dark
I am lost, oh Lord let me back
And my life’s gone, oh it’s meaningless
Lord I am suffering
Please come and save me now

Then I saw her, her eyes burnt through my soul
Life felt so beautiful
Love’s what has saved me now

I was crying on the night that I saw her
Fell in love on that very same day
I was desperately in need for her feelings
I will strive for her heart till the end

In the end that’s all that should count
Love is our guiding light
In crossing through this world

And I’m walking on a clear path
Now I know what life’s about
And I’m saying goodbye to the dark

When you’re walking down your lonely road
Search inside to find the truth
Let your feelings guide you

Love made me live again
It’s my advice to you
Let love flow in your veins

I was crying on the night that I saw her
Fell in love on that very same day
I was desperately in need for her feelings
I will strive for her heart till the end

Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer

Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer
Had a very shiny nose
And if you ever saw it
You would even say it glows
And all of the other reindeer
Used to laugh and call him names
They never let poor Rudolph
Join in any reindeer games

Then one foggy Christmas Eve,
Santa came to say,
Rudolph with your nose so bright,
Won’t you guide my sleigh tonight?
Rudolf’s red nose twinkled with pride
Hearing Santa speak
But his fellow reindeer yelled
“Don’t you dare, you circus freak”.

So Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer
Sadly had to leave the fleet
Packed up a few belongings
And he went out on the street
All around the world he travelled
Many different things he tried
But with a super glowing red nose
There could be no place to hide

Then one crappy Christmas Eve
Rudolf came to say
I guess with my nose so bright
I could be on TV tonight!
This is how the story ends
With Rudolf loved and famed
And Santa with his nine reindeer
“Greetings to you all” exclaimed.

This is how the story ends
With Rudolf loved and famed
And Santa with his nine reindeer
“Greetings to you all” exclaimed.

Deck The Halls

Deck the halls with boughs of holly,
Fa la la la la, la la la la.
Tis the season to be jolly,
Fa la la la la, la la la la.

Don we now our gay apparel,
Fa la la, la la la, la la la.
Troll the ancient Yule tide carol,
Fa la la la la, la la la la.

While I tell of Yule tide treasure
Shhhh!! Do you hear the magic of Christmas?
Mommy and Daady come and look!

Fast away the old year passes,
Fa la la la la, la la la la.
Hail the new, ye lads and lasses,
Fa la la la la, la la la la.

Sing we joyous, all together,
Fa la la la la, la la la la.
Heedless of the wind and weather,
Fa la la la la, la la la la.

Fast away the old year passes,
Hail the new, ye lads and lasses,
Sing we joyous, all together,
Heedless of the wind and weather,
Fa la la la la, la la la la

Jingle Bells

Dashing through the snow
In a one horse open sleigh
O’er the fields we go
Laughing all the way
Bells on bob tails ring
Making spirits bright
What fun it is to laugh and sing
A sleighing song tonigh

Jingle bells, jingle bells
Jingle all the way
Oh, what fun it is to ride
In a one horse open sleigh
Hey,

jingle bells, jingle bells
Jingle all the way
Oh, what fun it is to ride
In a one horse open sleigh

A day or two ago
I thought I’d take a ride
And soon Miss Fanny Bright
Was seated by my side
The horse was lean and lank
Misfortune seemed his lot
We got into a drifted bank
And then we got upsot

Jingle bells, jingle bells
Jingle all the way
Oh, what fun it is to ride
In a one horse open sleigh
Hey,

jingle bells, jingle bells
Jingle all the way
Oh, what fun it is to ride
In a one horse open sleigh
