El ritmo y la letra son muy originales y además la batería y guitarras hacen un excelente trabajo contribuyendo a crear una obra maestra. Nada que envidiar a Eluveite. Favorite track: Ashen.

GypsFu1vus I am following Ocelon since I saw them on a show in Madrid and I was looking forward to listen to their first full-length album. "Of the Lost Heritage" has a nice balance between folk and metal elements, as well as between growling and clean vocals. I love the way that the wind instruments and the violin work together. A must-listen album if you wanna have a taste of the impressive folk metal featured in Spain or you already enjoy with young bands like Salduie, Celtibeerian, Heid or Lèpoka. Favorite track: Homeland.

Track Name: To Ocelon
(Instrumental)
Track Name: The Moon Hunter
When her light returns at nightfall
Her bright breaks through the clouds
In the dark she comes to me
Shining over my dreams
Charmed by an hypnotic shade
I’m forced to run away
Deep in the woods I track her
Chasing her silver trail

While I’m running with the deer
And howling as the wolf
My body frees my spirit
To fly over the owl
Hunting through the silent woods
Climbing up the highest cliffs
Going faster than the wind
My prey plays with me

Up to the moon
Deep in the night sky
Far away among the stars
Again I raise my sight
But in the lakes she’s revealed
Her spirit is trapped
And I can fuse our reflections
Until the first morning light

Waiting lonely on my knees
While she runs away from me
I can feel the dawning kiss
All over my skin
A tear crosses my face
While the sun comes back to reign
But tomorrow she’ll be back
And I’ll chase her again

Up to the moon
Deep in the night sky
Far away among the stars
Again I raise my sight
But in the lakes she’s revealed
Her spirit is trapped
And I can fuse our reflections
Until the first morning light
Track Name: Amber Blood
Come outside, the table is ready,
everybody is about to arrive.
A lot of meat and so much beer
to let he feast begin.

A great banquet to grace the heroes
they have fought with bravery.
Our ancestors will be proud,
They’ll bless all of us.

Prepare the cauldrons overflowed with beer.
Put them on a great place that everyone can see.

Now bring us the best ingredient,
it will die for our gods.
With the last breath of the sun
the sacrifice will commence.

Strongly tied upside down,
sink their heads in the ale,
when the bodies stop to squirm
The potion will be crafted.

…let’s drink!

Drink this glorious
beverage and
feel the power
through your veins and
see yourself rising
upon your strength
above your senses
so start to fight!

Hey! Hey! Fill your jars!
Drink till your hearts beat as one.
Hey! Hey! Get in trance!
Fight while drink this amber blood.
We feel the heat on our flesh,
there's no end to this drunkenness.
We will fight and we will dance
all this night till this land burns.

Fighting drunk with healing wrath
like brothers we are.
We won’t feel pain anymore
with unity and magic broth.

Now we’re bound forever with
the mighty souls of the drowned.
Warriors that protect our hearts
with iron, honor and amber blood.

Drink this glorious
beverage and
feel the power
through your veins and
see yourself rising
upon your strength
above your senses
victorious!
Track Name: Homeland
Tired of travel I need rest at night
Deep in my heart, within my mind
There lies a place carved in my eyes
Home of my soul and hall of my pride

Quiet field where I could ponder
When trouble strikes as thunder
Cold stone to warm my blood
Ancient wood to hold my thoughts

When I close my eyes and submit to the night
The echoes of my goals and deepest dreams
Come back to my mind, restoring my strength
Returning me to my Homeland
Track Name: Communion
Run!
Rush the path
And redeem
For a life in a cell of invisible bars

(Now) Go!
Wild out
Shout to the skies
And find what you've been waiting for

Feel the wind
that's pushing you
onwards your dream

Enter a realm
Beyond mortal lands
Bound to earth
(Bound to all)
Seeking inside
You'll find light
Communion is reaching you

Silence thoughts that make you bleed
Strike down monsters off your mind
Find the calm:
Forests whispers when to move

Feel the wind
that's pushing you
onwards your dream

Enter a realm
Beyond mortal lands
Bound to earth
(Bound to all)
Seeking inside
You'll find light
Communion is reaching you

We have reached the final step
Communion's waiting
Take a breath and clear your sight
Become one with nature!

Feel the wind
that's pushing you
onwards your dream

Enter a realm
Beyond mortal lands
Bound to earth
(Bound to all)
Seeking inside
You'll find light
Communion is reaching you
Track Name: Forest Of Mist
Dusk of fog and coldness
Silence breaks as the path
Leads nowhere

Breaking moon
Over leaves and humid ground
Woods of grey dreamscapes
to seek our own ghosts

Grant yourself the calm and
Understand the true shape of dark

Don't fear the withering winds
Cause man's inner spirit here will find bravery

Here where the time stand still
Here you don't feel alone
Is the scent of fear
When your soul is closed
Despise the light!
In the forest of mist

Here where the time stand still
Here you don't feel alone
Is the scent of fear
When your soul is closed
Despise the light!
In the forest of mist

Don't fear the withering winds
Cause man's inner spirit here will find bravery

Here where the time stand still
Here you don't feel alone
Is the scent of fear
When your soul is closed
Despise the light!
In the forest of mist

Here where the time stand still
Here you don't feel alone
Is the scent of fear
When your soul is closed
(when your soul is closed)
Despise the light!
(despise the light)
In the Forest of Mist
Track Name: Pilgrimage
Hear, my son,
the things I will tell you,
they’re all about
everything you can reach.

The first lesson
you must to know
is don’t fear to ask.
Don´t be afraid to learn.

A learned man talks,
a wise one, hears,
you must to decide
which do you want to be.

If your words aren’t
nicer than silence
you better say nothing
or you can start a war.

Always be aware
that it is far easier
to move a river
than the will of a man.

Earth is your home
and nature your lover,
please take care of them
or they will turn against you.

Take just what
they offer to you
and don’t fight for more.
No one can own the world.

Now, my son,
you must let me go,
I have seen enough things
since long time ago.

I can finally rest,
and, please, don’t forget
the knowledge I taught you,
I’ll always be there.

Souls will cry
when moths fly…

Fool!
Never cry a live well lived!
You’re insulting my memory
if you think I wasted my life.

I have gone too soon
leaving you with so much to learn.
Pain is the best master…
…even though stave.

Treasure the gift
your live gives to you,
use it wisely.
Time is always sand.

Friends and food
and family too
are the most important
pillars of peace of mind.

The best advices
I can give to you
are: “patience is a virtue”
and “make your own wishes true”.
Track Name: Battletroll
Listen for a while
Dear friend of mine
I will tell you a story
Well, sort of a rhyme:
Legend speaks
Of an ancient troll
Who was not interested
in fame or gold

People say for sure
That in battles can be told
A great figure raging
At least twelve meters tall!
From his cave to the fight
the journey seems to enjoy
The bigger the armies
the more he will destroy!

Batlletroll Battletroll!
Strong as ten furious bears!
Batlletroll Battletroll!
He has a three meters long beard
Batlletroll Battletroll!
In his right hand wields a tree
Batlletroll Battletroll!
Even bravest warriors flee

No mercy for the weak
No pain from any wound
The battle is over
There is no one around

Legend speaks
Of an ancient troll
Who was not interested
in fame or gold

(He only wants to smash your head
Keep running or you’ll be dead)

Batlletroll Battletroll!
Strong as ten furious bears!
Batlletroll Battletroll!
He has a three meters long beard
Batlletroll Battletroll!
In his right hand wields a tree
Batlletroll Battletroll!
Even bravest warriors flee

Batlletroll Battletroll!
He only wants to smash your head
Batlletroll Battletroll!
Keep running or you’ll be dead
Track Name: Among Mountains
Awaking my forgotten senses
The mist brings the silence chords
New and old smells dancingin the fog
The dawn is born from a single lung
Bringing a thousand sounds
Those are clearly fused as one
(I´m)Hearing smells (and) breathing sounds
I`m feeling part of the symphony of life

The wet breeze embraces my skin
And the grass rocks my feet
Waving my shade in the wind
Calling my spirit to be free
The first beams of light
Are warming my stunned sight
And finally reborn, the mist moves aside
And shares with me the symphony of life

While the Sun returns to shine
My blood flows as melted snow
Being fused with the hill's rime
Reflecting the lightfrom the sky
While the night restores his realm
The mountain takes my last breath
And remaining in silence I realize that
I’ve always been part of the symphony of life
Track Name: Raven's Crown
Bleak rays falls between
the doors of the Great Tree
With a single open eye
I can see his blackness

Now I am awake,
conscious and prepared,
I smell the scent of dirt
The obscure shade is watching

Long forgotten spirits gather
Waiting to surpass this world
They'll now be the judge
Linking my soul to the roots

It's trying to pull me down
with a cold hug with strong hands
It scoffs giving me a crown
of a barren and tainted realm

Heavier than chains of stone
are the feelings of my guilt,
eating my lungs and heart
like a raging wild vulture

Long forgotten spirits gather
Waiting to surpass this world
They'll now be the judge
Linking my soul to the roots
