The Castle Hall is the third song on the second CD of Into the Electric Castle, and the tenth song of the entire album. Its length is 5:49. It is preceded by Valley of the Queens, and followed by Tower of Hope.
The Voice congratulates the adventurers on making it into the Electric Castle. He tells them the castle hall will confront them with their past. If they have killed, they souls of the vanquished will come to torment them.
The Barbarian is confronted by many ghosts from his past, and The Knight asks Excalibur, Merlin, and other things that are sacred to him, for the power needed to face his demons here.
At last! You enter the Electric Castle! Here in this vast hall where even shadows fear the light - here you must confront your past. If you have killed, beware the Gathering of Spirits for they do fish for men. Here; the disembodied Astral World becomes flesh once more. I pity the men of swords.
For here blood runs cold...
Cries from the grave resound in my ears
They hail from beyond my darkest fears
Faces from the past are etched in my brain
The women I raped, the men I've slain
- Shades of the dead are sliding on the wall
- Demons dance in the castle hall
I call upon the sword, the mighty Excalibur
Grant me the skill to fulfil my quest
I call upon my king and the knights of the table round
Grant me the courage to stand to this quest
I call upon the seer, Merlin the sorcerer
Grant me the magic to end my pain
I call upon the spirit that lives in a noble heart
Grant me the passion that's within my veins
Shades of the dead are sliding on the wall
Demons dance in the castle hall
- REPEAT ALL
