New The Elder Scrolls Online Trailer Features the Beautiful Voice of Malukah

on April 23, 2013 7:06 PM

If you don’t know who Malukah is, you probably aren’t a fan of The Elder Scrolls. Her Skyrim-dedicated covers like The Dragonborn Comes, The Tale of Aggression and my personal favorite Tale of The Tongues went viral and gathered several million views on Youtube.

That’s why it’s not really surprising that the folks at Bethesda and ZeniMax Online Studios noticed her talent and had her compose (yes, she’s also a great composer, not just a great singer) and sing a song for The Elder Scrolls Online, titled “The Beauty of Dawn”. The title is derived from the lore translation of the word “Tamriel.”

The song is really fantastic and fits Malukah’s beautiful voice perfectly. You can listen to it as you watch the trailer below, and read the lyrics at the bottom of this post.

A serpent lights the ancient sky
A threat of tainted stars
Evil stirs and in its wake
The souls of mortals sway

Sorrow reigns
Over fields of red
Spirits pace
Through the shadows cast by their graves

These are days and nights of venom and blood
Heroes will rise as the anchors fall
Brave the strife, reclaim every soul
That belongs to the Beauty of Dawn

Darkness strikes to blind the strong
But Faith will guide our swords
Loyal hearts we’ll stand as one
And fight with shields of Hope

Pride fuels the deadly fire
That devours our tower of gold
The drums of war will rage and roar
‘Til the sun burns bright once more

These are days and nights of venom and blood
Heroes will rise as the anchors fall
Brave the strife, reclaim every soul
That belongs to the Beauty of Dawn
