Big FromSoftware fans have a thirst for all things knowledge in the studio’s games. While the game is relatively approachable in terms of world building and lore, that’s still the case in Elden Ring. But while most people look for clues in the item and weapon descriptions, and there are plenty of players who buy Elden Ring Runes to gain a deep understanding of the game, even in clips and mechanics that weren’t in the final version, there’s another part of these games that is rarely get the same exposure.
That’s boss music. These iconic themes often feature vocals, but the bloated music and unfamiliarity with what’s actually being said keep many players from thinking about the lyrics. But they are lyrics that reflect the theme of the song. They are only in Latin.
In an effort to uncover the absolutely unexplored side of these games, YouTuber Daniel Olmos has translated the lyrics from Latin to English, revealing surprising lore details about their subject. Olmos’ channel is fairly new. They only uploaded four videos from Elden Ring and one from Dark Souls 3. Their Elden Ring collection includes Starscourge Radhan, Godrick the Grafted, Mohg and Godskin Apostles.
The Starscourge Radhan theme is actually divided into two parts. The first describes his fearsome warrior before the smash, providing another hint about his adoration of Godfrey, the First Elden Lord, and his lion Serosh. The second part deals with the main battles between Demigod Shardbearers, in particular his duel with Malenia, the Blade of Miquella and his subsequent ordeal with Scarlet Rot.
