Relinque means left afaik...so probably the left opus...
Don't really know how to translate opus... but I suppose opus is known by everyone...

Opus is latin or greek,one of those,and it means "Work" (Obra in spanish), like a great job,in orchestral compositions and stuff...

Opus Relinque  - The collection of the forsakened 

Lethean River - a river in Underworld in Greek mythology

As a person with medical experience......my playmate is a nurse B) ...female, smart ass B)

Angina as in pectoris is indeed a condition of chest pain  secondary to insufficient oxygenation of the myocardium (heart)....cool huh?

BUT...... Angina can also be a synonym for "strangulation or suffocation" I'm thinking this is the context intended for said song. I would hardly thing Vibeke's lyrics would be:

Angina strikes the myocardium
A small white nitro takes the pain away,   so that I can stay   relatively healthy.
(does it fit?) in the verse? <_<

In the context of ANGINA STRIKING ELYSIUM..... perhaps a strangulation or suffocation of the land/place/plane of dead heroes/nobles?

Sounds good to me.

And that boys and girls is Cardiac Maladies 101 and Metaphorical Synonyms 100 for today :P

thought they would reffer more to mythology than in fact medical stuff (I know angina is a medical condition) since the elysium was a place of resting souls in greek or roman mythology...but,hmm seems kinda complicated but it can be a possibility of it's true meaning...

What I can guess:

Dementia is chronic loss of mental capacity due to an organic cause

Simbelmˇne is some sort of grass as written in Lord of the Rings, not latin.

And Angina is when your heart muscle doesn't get enough blood. ;)

Heretique -> heretic (someone with other opinions than a religious dogma)

J.R.R. Tolkien - Lord of the Rings:

At the foot of the walled hill the way ran under the shadow of many mounds, high and green. Upon their western sides the grass was white as with a drifted snow: small flowers sprang there like countless stars amid the turf.
'Look!' said Gandalf. 'How fair are the bright eyes in the grass! Evermind they are called, simbelmynŽ in this land of Men, for they blossom in all the seasons of the year, and grow where dead men rest. Behold! we are come to the great barrows where the sires of Thťoden sleep.' 'Seven mounds upon the left, and nine upon the right,' said Aragorn. 'Many long lives of men it is since the golden hall was built.'

Hope this helps - WB
