Angellore and A Sequel Of Decay
« on: 06 April 2011, 00:25:51 »

Is it just me, or do these songs seem related theme wise? Are these songs both based off of a similar story or even the same one? The lyrics are kind of similar...with both of them talking about fallen angels being led astray and stuff. Especially this part:

Angellore:
Into the night, strays an angel
So lost and tearful all astray


A Sequel of Decay:
An angel strays upon my door
So frail and lost within


Also, Osten sings a majority of the vocals in both songs.

but then again, Morten is known for making his music all with similar themes (*cough* Sirenia *cough*)
What do you guys think?

Like always, I usually have no idea what Morten is trying to say with his lyrics. Angellore seems to be about saying goodbye, while A Sequel of Decay seems to be about meeting. But yeah, ุsten's vocals and the general feeling are similiar on both.

I agree. Especially with the whole saying goodbye and meeting thing.
I heard A Sequel Of Decay first for the first time and then I heard Angellore, and I thought that they were kind of similar in theme. But Angellore seems to be a bit more...idk...not as ominous. It's still really sad, but it sounds extremely nostalgic and kind of innocent. A Sequel Of Decay sounds really doomful.
