Creepy Subliminal Messages found and translated

Go to any bonfire in a quiet place. The Chamber of the Princess is a good spot. Listen carefully to the sound made by the fire. Turn up the volume or use recording software. It is a women's voice. She is quickly repeating:

"Don't even think with your head at all."

If you really concentrate, then the discordant noise surrounding the bonfire transforms into a constant hypnotic beat of the Tibetan bowl/bell resounding again and again to program the phrase into you. It is in perfect sync with the phrase!

There are also more subliminal messages throughout the game. In Duke's Archives, there are a mix of female/male/Japanese/American voices. These begin once you turn off the alarm at the archives. They will also appear at times for the rest of the game. The voices are barely audible, so use some recording software to pull out the noise. I can catch some of the words:

When you say: hands off of things or Jesus Christ or kick your ass...
trust the essence of things...
that's when you say that they took ...
kill yourself all day.. (this one is by a female Japanese voice and is the most obvious)
even when your doing the slightest move or advance

I wish I could make out every word spoken, but some spots are heavily garbled.

Anyway, I just find it all amusing, mainly because even with this added hidden layer of difficulty, a portion of us still managed to beat the game despite all the odds against us!

Some people wanted proof, so here it is! I was hoping that at least a few would prove to themselves that there actually are hidden messages to be found, maybe tinker on their own to see what happens. That would be the ideal approach. For those that won't bother, here is what I recorded, believe what you will. I used Goldwave for recording from the PC version. On "Dark Souls - Subliminal Bonfire", the bonfire loops for a full minute. I have two versions in the file. The mp3 was converted from the waveform, so both are actually the same. On "Dark Souls - Duke's Archives subliminals", this is just a part of the entire message. I want to focus on the most obvious part, which is at 0:12 on that track. This is the female Japanese voice quickly saying "kill yourself all day".

As a bonus, I am also including the creepy-as-hell track "Dark Souls - Painted World of Ariamis Boxyard". This is three minutes of pure damnation that I recorded in the same area where you were invaded by the dark spirit Xanthous King, Jeremiah. Don't even ask me what is being said here! Most of you will toss it without hesitation - and I would not stop you. I could not find this anywhere on the internet, so I had to record it myself.

Files are good for at least 100 days. Let me know if it becomes a dead link: ... 4239453802

I also found three tracks on the internet that do not appear on the official soundtrack:
Dark Souls - Character Creation
Dark Souls - Gywn's Faithful Black Knights (open the Firelink Altar door)
Dark Souls - The Ballad of the Dying Sun (end song)
I do not think I can share those tracks here, but the links out there should still be good for those of you who still want them.

One more thing: I translated a strange message someone recorded while fighting Manus. It can be found here:
