The Devin Townsend Project's 'Epicloud' has a re-recording of the song "Kingdom". I can't edit the lyrics but I copied them word-for-word from the 'Epicloud' CD booklet.

[...] Alhadis' Edit: I think quoting the first line was enough. ;)


Verified. Lyrics corrected.

I did not plan to transcribe the lyrics posted by Alhadis, because the songs are so stupid. Then I changed my mind when I saw HouseSpiders's post. I'll do Alhadis's post this weekend.

:lol:!!

Bravo Snow, excellent work. :D Even the typos from the original text are retained... admirably diligent. ;) I only noticed a few discrepancies in the last verse of the last song - but I can see how you might've been wearing out at that point.

Fcuk! That's exactly the reason why I love Japan and the Japanese people! They are always the most creative bastards in sex! I wish I were Japanese... but anyway, leave the fucking lyrics to me. BTW, do you want me to add spaces between words or just leave the superlong shit without breaking apart?

Edit: that's actually easy. You just crop each song's lyrics, save it to a new file, convert it to a pdf and use OCR (available in Acrobat, not Reader). The result is pretty nice. (Few discrepancies do occur.) Don't try to OCR all lyrics at once; OCR will fail that. Try it for fun it you will.

Not an expert, but I believe lyrics follow the same rules as everything else on here and thus deserve proper grammar. But then again... lyrics are a form of poetry (prose) and have no set pattern or form...

I managed to decipher the lyrics from an old post of Fulgurius. There is only one word I am unsure of. The following is for track 7 of this album. Could anyone figure out what the [?] word should be?

http://img23.imageshack.us/img23/157/inlay3n.jpg (scan)
Bandcamp

Open the gates of neglectal tomb
Birth of new aeon in the Devil's womb
Hooded priests with the lizard's eyes
Praying goddess of destructive light

Shaky kingdoms of affection fall
Burn the insects, burn 'em all
Hellish rats eating them alive
Sordid slaves with the shallow life

Shed over blood - ceremonial death
Out of mind and ecstasy yells
Fire pyramids eclipse the sky
Snakes [?] priests pentagram sign

Sacred kapala with cold demon's blood
Visions of absolute, worms devour light
Necromantic mass, ancient wisdom rise
Hail samsara's end - the end of the Death

Looks like "ten", although that doesn't seem to make much sense.

Eh, just cut the lyrics off at an arbitrary character count, forcing it into a column. ;) Like this:

OCR is rarely accurate, BTW... even with clearly printed fonts. :p If it wasn't, I would've already had Acrobat scan it. ;)

I finally managed to transcribe the lyrics of track 3 & 5 of this album. It really took me a fucking long time to do this. However, the disappointing thing is, when I paste the lyrics to MA, it is nearly unreadable because the default text size is too small for this script. Could the webmaster change the text size according to the languages?

Holy shitfuck, fantastic job, mate. :| You mean you actually transcribed the lyrics using an ancient alphabet...? That deserves a freakin' medal, dude.

Lately I've tossed up the idea of how we'd go about adding embedded font-face support for these types of languages so even users without the necessary fonts installed will be able to view those archaic alphabets. Not sure if Morri and HB could be stuffed going outta their way for something that small, though :p (even if I was to go outta my way and do the implementation myself. :D)

Yeah. I got the lyrics book from the official website. But the lyrics for that two songs are simply pictures for each letter. You can select them, but cannot copy/paste to get the textual content, so... I set out to transcribe it by myself. Also, I asked a friend to help me identify some letters which are partially blocked.

First, I know nothing about the Arabic script; its letters have different forms depending on its position in the word. It is difficult for me to differentiate the letters. Second, and the more importantly, Persian is written from right to left, and MA does not support it. Look at the middle page of this post, where I addressed the problem.

Here is one lyrics (tr. 3) left for this album. It's handwritten Spanish, too difficult for me to transcribe.

An idea: why don't we open a new category in "report a mistake" called "lyrics in need of transcription"? I guess very few people would check this subforum routinely, and even fewer are interested in the work which is time-consuming and only gives you 1pt. Consequently, some of the old posts in this thread are ignored, forgotten and probably never remembered. They were ignored at first probably because it was written in a "small" language, which the few "common transcribers" don't understand, and they were never remembered because people are too lazy to check old posts. Even for those lyrics which did get transcribed, we often had to wait for a long time.

If we move them the "report a mistake", much more people could see them, many more people could understand some "small" languages, and so they get a higher chance of being transcribed. For example: this user had only one contribution, and that contribution was the lyrics of Agalloch's Faustian Echoes, which, as I clearly remembered, at the time of his contribution, was nowhere else to be found on the internet!

On page 13 of this thread, Doomsday posted some scans of Fatima Hill. The (officially translated) English lyrics were already added, however, many songs are sung totally in Japanese! To put it softly, the lyrics here are misleading; to put it to the ground, some lyrics are totally wrong! You cannot say, "well we are an international website, so we don't care about the original Japanese lyrics; as long as we have the English one, we are fine." That's of course not the attitude for an encyclopedic website. If we really want to build a greatest website that could rise up in the sky and fuck the dragons high, we need to, and we will, find someone to transcribe the original Japanese lyrics!

Also, I have some scans of lyrics written in Swedish, Czech, Russian etc, which are quite difficult for me to transcribe, especially those written cursively. I have posted clear scans of Czech, Portuguese, French lyrics (on this very page), with no response yet. (And then I painfully transcribed the Czech one.)

Working on it. There are two words I just can't fucking understand, so I'll look for the song and give it a listen.

And yes, it'd be great to somehow have more people noticing this thread... I just don't get what do you mean by the previous pòst exactly...

EDIT: Lyric done.
