Candlemass - Mirror, Mirror Lyrics

Mirror, mirror upon the wall
Magic demon eye
A realm of madness
Awakened by the call

Speak the ancient words of mages
Try to take control
The essence of evil,
A challenge for your soul

The battle of minds
The riddle the rhymes
Beware of the darkness behind
Usurped and enslaved
Redeemed and betrayed
The devil in the mirror, obey!

Iridescent pulsation light
Glowing in its heart
The surface is reflecting
Nightmares of your mind

Green mist swirling deep within
A dark dimension takes from
The grip of clawed hands drags you inside

The battle of minds
The riddle the rhymes
Beware of the darkness behind
Usurped and enslaved
Redeemed and betrayed
The devil in the mirror, obey!

Enchanted with powers to conquer your soul
Good or evil it won't mind
The mirror of darkness is blind

Feel the presence, the voice of the dark
Break the balance, intrudes your mind
Try to deny, oh master of fools
Captured forever, the loser learns the rules

  23. Psycho Machinery

    And some people think Blind Guardian's song is the original... lol. HAIL MESSIAH, THE MAN.

    Andre Felder

    Both songs are epix


    Not really sure what you are saying, those are two completely different songs that are in no way related.

  24. Cristian Lima

    I want this epic song in my funeral

  25. Blind Bosnian

    Blind Guardian has the song of the same name.And guess what:both of them are epic as hell

  26. Skeleton

    I feel like the operatic voice is easier to enjoy once you know what Messiah looks like, it's a moment of clarity. of course he's a dark aged looking executioner looking troll man with a bountiful mountain of hair.


    Of course.

    nick davis

    Not really for me. That mystery kind if caught me off guard and was kind of cool. When I firat heard mourners lament I thought he was black hahahah. He has an extremely full voice. Too bad hes definitely passed the vocal prime.

    G Delic

    When I heard his voice the first time I thought: "Man, this guy surely looks like a medieval disco king"


    Besides the epic vocals, his doom dance won me over.

  27. gaby man clasiadicto

    Una voz perfecta

  28. Joan Perez Gimenez

    I love it

  29. Dan Orozco

    I LOVE this!

  30. _Emma _

    His voice... *-*

    A Dude Who Loves Heavy Metal

    It sound like he is singing opera at some point in the song

  31. KarateBJJ 1994

    candlemass kicks ass man

  32. Agent Orange

    Hate his voice

    Some Dumbass



    what ???? he is very epic

    Darryl Cornejo

    Messiah is better than both singers that were in Candlemass. Unlike most people, as much as I highly disagree with your opinion, I'll turn the other cheek. Have a nice day.

    Psycho Machinery

    Noob detected


    That solo is fucking amazing

  34. prutnek

    spiegeltje spiegeltje aan de wand

  35. gansaification

    meu irmão ta gordoprecisa emagrecer

  36. Berlin Onnatop

    Too fuckin sick.  My soul is yours... take it before the darkness take it!!! 

  37. Michael Orlet

    Mmmmm.. yup! See that number next to the dislikes? That's a zero!

  38. Conde

    Witchfinder General defined the Doom Metal.

  39. Wolfram

    eh, I am Norwegian and I got a deep brutal voice, but even I cant sing like Messiah!

  40. Wolfram

    How can Messiah be so awesome? oh wait, he is scandinavian right?

  41. Louise Wik

    proud to be swedish! hail Candlemass!

  42. Alison Hell

    Dat voice.

  43. warpig616

    Kodanshi Helcarver

    I totally am! As manifest and controlled as that of Natsuki from -OZ-

  44. MrMetalboy23

    This song is Doom Metal Cloass, Candlemass are the riff mysters of Doom!

  45. Andrew Anton

    riffs of niceage!

  46. NonEternal

    dat intro, oh god... beautiful and brutal at the sametime

  47. tavi921

    The best intro ever.

  48. SM Daly

    Candlemass has always been a band to play with, meaning playing their music.

  49. joshtheguy josh

    the album cover kicks so much ass!

  50. Luka rogošić

    Because: a) They're not coping black sabbath, they're just playing a genre black sabbath invented in their own original way.
    b) They're Scandinavian. Mothers there when they breastfeed feed children with metal instead of milk.

  51. PewPewPlasmagun

    HOW CAN THEY SOUND so black sabbath like and at the same time so original? scandinavians and metal have a relationship that is simply not
    of this world.

  52. PewPewPlasmagun

    phrases like

    "Lurking in the shadows
    Twisted shape of creeping terra"

    show the subtle ingenuity of candlemass.

  53. PewPewPlasmagun


    more precisily, its epic doom.

  54. Mario Loi
