The shirts on the current tour (as well as the patch and the slipmat) feature the words "Cave Tyrannis" which to me translates to "Beware of the Tyrants". Does anyone know what this refers to?November 1, 2017 at 18:03 #31418BeParticipant
Might be referring to the silly lyrics of The Tower "Pray your leaders…"November 1, 2017 at 21:44 #31419Un.Chien.d.EspaceParticipant
it's the next album's title. :lol:November 2, 2017 at 12:26 #31420boomer former helmParticipant
i thought also it might be the next album title as it was with heavy metal fruit back then wehen they sold a shirt with that phrase on it a tour before.November 2, 2017 at 14:42 #31421supernautParticipant
I guess it sums up (parts of) the current album's themes. And the shirt looks great, bought it.November 2, 2017 at 15:06 #31422JEROParticipant
Or…."Tyrants Beware, the great mothership of Love is coming….(my interpretation and reason to wear this t-shirt proud and aloud).And they call Latin a dead language…November 2, 2017 at 19:01 #31423
Actually, only "beware of the tyrants" is a sensible translation, from a linguistic point of view, that is. I agree with Be and Supernaut here, I think it's connected to the lyrics of The Tower (and other songs). And it makes sense, quite a few rather disconcerting figures have surfaced on the world's political stages in recent years. You better beware of them.November 2, 2017 at 21:17 #31424JEROParticipant
You're probably right, Great King Rat, mine was just a free artistic interpretation. We must beware of them, but they better beware of the Cosmic Rules (instant karma's gonna get ya!) haha!
By the way, talk about linguistic, there used to be lots of word (and title-)puns in sleevenotes etc. of MP albums, another example of the unstopable flow of ideas and creativity of our guys!

Speaking of linguistic playfulness, does anybody know if "WolkengÃ¤nger" (German for "cloudwalker") was actually written on the setlists? Or was that the artistic freedom of those who reported the setlists in question?November 3, 2017 at 08:01 #31426
Sorry, "WolkengÃ¤nger" was not written like that on the setlist. It was my artistic freedom, influenced by some, well you kow…
"Ship of FÃ¼Ã¼ls" in opposite is a quote of the setlist.November 3, 2017 at 08:28 #31427
It's quite common around here to reinterpret songnames on setlists – some examples I've encountered so far include L'autre autre cretin, Spacedog or Schiff der Bekloppten :lol:November 6, 2017 at 00:31 #31428
True, Karma, but the band does it as well, think of "You lied", "K9", or just recently, "Ship of FÃ¼Ã¼ls". So I wanted to know where this one originated… I think "Schiff der Bekloppten" is really funny, and so is "Internet Explorer".November 6, 2017 at 00:40 #31429ErcarnarParticipant
My setlist from tonight says "Un Chien sull'Adda" :lol: :lol: :lol:November 6, 2017 at 11:28 #31430BeParticipant
Thanks people! Intrepid explorer just came up in my Playlist. For the rest of my life I will be unable to unhear Bent singing INTERNET Explorer!
