However, as difficult as she may be to fight, players are captivated by her mysterious song.

@Chinchillazilla shared the following tweet on April 25th and was surprised that the singing bats are actually using a real-life language: Latin. Of course, as with many things in FromSoftware’s games, it’s not surprising that even these enemies suffer from the events of the world.

The original English translation of the song actually comes from research by Reddit users u/Nyrun and u/MAGISTER-ORGANI. Through their combined efforts and knowledge, the two were able to obtain a copy of the official Latin lyrics by Nóra Csádi, the singer who performed the song for the game. Here is the full English translation of the bats Song of Lament composed by Tsukasa Saitoh:

O that land, formerly blessed, now withered.

We were destined for motherhood, But now have disfigured themselves.

We cried and cried But no one consoles us.

Goldener, who were you so mad at?

Fascinated by the creatures’ alluring song, u/Nyrun and u/MAGISTER-ORGANI teamed up to create an accurate English translation for the song. u/MAGISTER-ORGANI’s work focused on providing a correct transcription of the song (and discovering that it actually used some odd pronunciations of Latin words), while the two worked on the ancient language interpretation.

In the u/MAGISTER-ORGANI video, they theorize that these singing bats may have once been brides who eventually became clouded. These harpies pay for their sins, or the sins of their partners, and are now destined to roam the lands as humanoid monsters. Also, the reference to the “Golden” could refer to Radahn or Malenia; This could explain why these bats are hostile to other tainted or anyone trying to fix the world for the gods who destroyed them in the first place.

Overall, you can watch the u/MAGISTER-ORGANI video below, or watch the u/Nyrun video matching the English lyrics to the Latin lyrics.

elden ring can be played on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S.
