    Hi there everybody! I am just announcing here that I am working on an English version of that fantastic Japanese TFA opening. I'll post the cover as soon as I have it uploaded on Youtube.
    In the meantime, I'm working on the lyrics. I'll post them here before recording myself, and I would be eternally grateful if someone could point out what sounds good and what doesn't.
    Till then, thanks for watching! I'll keep you all posted! ;D

    All right, so I finished making the lyrics. I'll already tell you that I did not do the exact translation of JAM Project's song, but made it into a more Transformers-version. Just read the lyrics and tell me what you think is good and what could be better.

    Transformers EVO English version by Jayhan

    Lurking out in the fields, a deadly force is rising up
    Sneaking up behind our friends, and slaughtering them before us
    (“DECEPTICONS!!”)

    We've got nowhere to run, they have us beat and surrounded
    Our time to strike has come, stand your ground and take them head on

    Someone tells me cast your worries and your fears all aside
    Harden your spirits, never give into your doubts

    Take a breath, brandish your weapon
    Recall the oath you have taken
    And attack!

    All I can do
    All you can do
    Charge your spark and transform
    Summon that anger burning inside of you and turn it into strength
    All I can do
    All you can do
    Call out to arms and transform
    Sound out your battlecry
    Fight and Go!

    During this age of war, we have to face our share of grief
    While fights and lives lives are lost, and the outcome seems hopeless

    Our enemy is fierce and appears to have the power
    Yet here we are as one, our spirits are unbreakable

    Our brethren and our friends know that we all can overcome trials
    Their faith is our drive to realize our dreams

    Our darkest hour is at hand
    But no matter what, believe in tomorrow
    And attack!

    All I can do
    All you can do
    Leap out and transform
    Take in all the damage inflicted on you and let it become your thrill
    All I can do
    All you can do
    Overcome your pain and transform
    Your will knows no limit
    Reach and Go!

    (Interlude)

    Our bodies are battered and scarred
    But we will fight till all are one
    Now attack!

    All I can do
    All you can do
    Charge your spark and transform
    Summon that anger burning inside of you and turn it into strength
    All I can do
    All you can do
    Call out to arms and transform
    Sound out your battlecry
    Fight and Go!

    Okay, here it is! I'm terribly sorry for the cheap equipment that I have, and I don't think I could do the song justice... Oh well I tried.
    To be honest, this cover is dedicated to the Transformers Prime show, because I think the crew working on it did a great job so far (and still is). :D  So tell me what you guys think about it!
