The angel of music and inspiration to artist, The burning one, The 7th archangel, The angel with the most beautiful voice in heaven. It is said that in Judgment Day he will stand on the walls of Jerusalem and blow his trumpet, the sound of the trumpet will be so horrible that it will awake the dead. And every soul that ever lived will come forth ot be judged before God, and the end of the world will come. Three times a day and three times a night, Israfel looks down to the depths of Hell and see the horrors and suffering of the souls. He sheds tears of sorrow and agony for the souls, and it is said that one day the earth will be flooded by those tears.-The Tears Of Israfel.
"None sing so wildly well
As the angel Israfel,
And the giddy stars (so legends tell),
Ceasing their hymns, attend the spell
Of his voice, all mute."
- Edgar Allan Poe.
