Vlürch wrote:the last thing sounds like "dies irae", which means "day of wrath". If it is Latin, the beginning could something like "e ???? quod est pullarum", meaning "from ???? that are dark", but grammatically incorrect; it should be "quae sunt pullarum" and, actually, it sounds like it could be that even though I keep hearing it more like the former.
vijayjohn wrote:I haven't listened to those clips you just posted yet, but I really don't think this is Latin, sorry. I'm sticking with my southern Italian guess for now. (Though note that not all minority languages in southern Italy are varieties of Italian. It could be Griko, for instance).

I'm sorry but it doesn't. Dies irae is supposed to be pronounced [ˈdies ˈire] or if you don't know IPA, DEE-ehs EE-reh.

I am a property of my beloved.
The dash under م looks like a kasra, but it should not be there, the word is 'mulk (un)'.

I don't know much about Latin, but why couldn't it just be hiatus?
Vlürch wrote:Latin has always been used as an "obscure dark language" by the Japanese, though, which is why I still think it's Latin. I can't think of any songs with even one line of Latin off the top of my head, but Dum Spiro Spero is an album by Dir en grey; IIRC there isn't actually any Latin in any of the songs, though.
