The singers need opera training; also, too slow for Dragonforce Radio.

Studio version is okay. Live performance will bring you to your feet if you're not already.

dhmoose12 I have seen this track performed live by TSO several times and it is absolutely majestic live.

I like TSO but I think the Therion version is better.
To Aaron: This is one of those classical pieces that gets used over and over again, so there's no telling where you heard it. There's a Wikipedia article on it though... maybe that will help. :)

Have any of you people actually seen this song preformed live? I do believe they aren't trying to go more toward hard sound with this rendition but more of a bad a** show piece!

Just in case you want to have some idea of wtf they're singing so epically without having to do much.

Awesome song wish I knew the translation of the words.

I sang this once and the only I could remember the lyrics is if I sang it as This octopus! Let's give him boots send him to North korea! Latin, difficult but very beautiful language.

Weak.

I sing in a choir, and for a short concert for middle school kids, we did a version of this song very similar to this but with a little more of a pop beat to it. The kids were all over it. They think choirs are cool now!

It's really hilarious trying to translate what they're saying. Go on and try it. It's fun.

This just doesn't match traditional versions of Orff's work. This song almost made 2 years of Latin worthwhile.

I definitely agree with those who commented that the Therion version is much better. I also think the Trevor Jones version is great. The TSO version not so great :(

This piece, not by TSO though, was used in the 1981 movie Excalibur. The scene is where King Arthur and the knights are riding though an orchard and white blossoms are falling all around. Awesome moment in the movie.

I agree with Quinna. Heard them live playing this song a couple days ago and it really had power then. I think their recording was just weak, when it is live it is absolutely amazing.

I haven't heard a version of Carmina Burana I haven't loved. The vocals and the classical sound is what grips me every time. I just can't get enough of that song and I think Trans-Siberi a n Orchestra does a very good job with it.

Not to happy with this version. Therion has a much better version.

Surprisingly tame, especially coming from TSO.

very weak.

I agree; weak rendition.

"Carmina Burana" isn't a person, it's the name of the suite that O Fortuna is part of. It was composed by Carl Orff. I do agree that this rendition is lackluster though; not nearly enough power for this piece.
Report as inappropriate
Better live, TBH

Meh.

Actually its O Forunta, get the name right. Carmina Burana wrote this but other stuff too. The Therion version is better. What a flop for TSO. They had a chance to add more power to the song.
