Hidden Title Tracks – Album Titles That Come From A Song`s Lyrics


Almost all album titles fall in one of two categories: The album shares the title with one of its songs (the title track) or, alternatively, the album title is independent from the songs (no title track).

However, there are examples of songs that have a central link to the album title without sharing the same name. In these cases, certain lyrics from the song were chosen as the album title.

This (alphabetical) list shows the names of these “hidden title tracks” and the central lyrics that gave the name to the corresponding album.

Please feel free to suggest more of your favorite metal/hard rock examples of these “hidden title tracks”.

Rush Moving Pictures from 1981
Only named the title track on Presto from 1989 the song Available Light

Trick of light
Moving picture🤘
Moments caught in flight
Make the shadows darker
Or the colors shine too bright

But this for other list



Thank you for this truly interesting example, Blackcrowe. Indeed, I have seen some other cases like this, but yet to few to make a list with them.

Dear Draugen, thank you very much for your nice examples. I have added the Draconian album that you mentioned. I will probably add the Theatre Of Tragedy example in another context / list, because there is a title track, even though it is just instrumental. There are also a few other cases like this. The Sirenia album has also a title track, even though the lyrics do not contain the phrase. This is also very interesting and worth to be collected in another context / list. I will come back to these examples later. Thank you very much for your efforts.

Oh! I see, my bad lol. I just thought it had to be lyrics containing the album title from a song with a different title. Disregard those examples then.

Indeed, no song should have the same title as the album (only the lyrics should be the reference) - in this list. However, as your examples are interesting, I will keep them in mind. Thank you.

this one is in spanish basically the songs talks about how the Pharaoh is building a pyramid/portal for his immortal soul
5) Amaran - Pristine in Bondage - Crow Me
"PRISTINE IN BONDAGE collector of chains
Hurrying out when it rains
To give you her place by the fire
PRISTINE IN BONDAGE she dances no more
Her cape is too heavy
Her feet are too sore"




Thank you very much for your nice comment and your interesting examples, valcrist.
I have added the corresponding information to the list.
Thank you very much for your efforts.

You are the virgin, you are the whore"

This is an interesting example for this list and a great song in general.

Elysian Blaze - Blood Geometry

From “The Temple Is Falling”

“Signs and feelings combine to instill the rites of the divine
Blessed be the blood of the eye
Can you feel it?
So why do you ignore this blood geometry?
Betrayers of mutant soil!

Thank you very much for your suggestion, Apothecary. At least on the album version I have seen, you can also find a song entitled Blood Geometry, which would be the actual title track. Therefore, I will keep this suggestion in mind for another possible list. Thank you again for this interesting case.

Oh, and completely forgot about my beloved Katatonia
Album: Sky Void of Stars
Track: Author
Quote: 'Then you shift into a looking glass,
A sky void of stars'



Thank you again for suggesting Katatonia's Sky Void Of Stars some time ago (I had already added this back then). As your comment suggested that you like this band, I just wanted to let you know that I have found three more examples from this band (in case you did not already find them yourself). I have added them (and some other updates) recently to the list.

Great examples, thanks for telling me, I definitely should have remembered some of those
Adopting this naming convention certainly seems like a trend with certain bands.
Happy to see that your lists are getting regular updates, keep up the good work! I'll try to be on the lookout for more examples too!

I just thought of another one:
Rolo Tomassi - Time Will Die And Love Will Bury It
The song "Alma Mater" has the following lyrics:

Quote:
I don't want to wait for everything
Waste away instead of vanishing
Time will die and love will bury it
Time will die and love will bury it
Aimless strives to try and reach this
Will not stir me from this sickness

Short note as a summary to Tarja:
All of Tarja`s regular studio albums follow different styles of uncommon naming conventions:

"Hidden" Title Track (see list above):
- My Winter Storm: album title from the lyrics of the song I Walk Alone
- Colours In The Dark: album title from the lyrics of the song Until Silence
- The Shadow Self: album title from the lyrics of the song Demons In You
- In The Raw: album title from the lyrics of the song Goodbye Stranger

"Hidden" and "Misplaced" Title Track:
- The Brightest Void: album title from the lyrics of the song Demons In You, which is found on the album The Shadow Self

Without category:
- What Lies Beneath: album title blurs the lines between different naming conventions, because no song has this title (no title track), even though the song "Underneath" has a similar title (quasi title track?) and a similar line in the lyrics: "Cannot take away / What`s underneath" (quasi hidden title track?)

Thank you very much, RoyBoy432.
I have added your suggestion for the lyrics of "At The Entrance To Hell's Unholy Fire" as first part of the album title.
It seems that this album has two hidden title tracks, because the second part of the album title comes from the lyrics of the song "Symphony Of The Deceived".

Thank you for this interesting example.

Thank you again, RoyBoy432. You are always welcome to post ideas. It is also interesting to collect several examples from one band. This might provide an oversight over the corresponding naming concepts of the group.
