Before we can unleash the furious beast, that our drummer Roman most certainly is, and install his hellish drum set in some cozy studio to record his magic, we need to make all the orchestra tracks up-to-date and awesome.

Every great song deserves a great title. Some say title is not important at all but I personally think exactly the opposite. It serves as a shortcut, a little something that tells you, what the song might possibly be about.

Well, there’s even a title song on it! Let’s hear it!” And I loved Hammerfall as a fan ever since listening to that track.
Well, my friends and companions, there’s a new song ahead. I have two titles in mind and have to decide which one to use. This is the excerpt of the lyrics; the chorus, actually. Let’s have a look at it and than you’ll let me know which title sounds better to you, right?
The age of the empire has come to an end
caught in the downfall, we can’t comprehend

we traded our freedom for greed
and we pledged our allegiance to the lords made of flesh and bones
and their power of silver and steel
So final our fate
when the memories decay
upon the face of the world
As I mentioned, there are two titles in consideration. One is: “Age of the Empire” and the other is: “End of an Empire”.
