01. The Beginning

[instrumental]


02. The Hammer Of Thor

Mercy, spare me, I was but jesting
Didn't mean to cut all her hair off
Listen, I will make the sons of

Iwald forge her, you won't regret this
New hair, see her,
Dwarves are fine craftsmen
Simple, you know, they may let me

Stand by, setting their souls on fire
My my, watching the world

Go through mischief and
Malice and the woes of war
Still some things are worth fighting for
Let death and destruction
Stand your foes before
And Midgard is safer the more
Out of the fire of freedom
And out of the forge of dwarves
To hold in your hand now
And for evermore
I give you the Hammer of Thor

War unlike peace leaves it's lore
Takes our blood and our gore and never repay us
Once thrown there's no way back
To the way things were before

Warfare somewhere
Forge now your finest weapons
Worthy of blood of battle
Metal, deadly for these days of

Wartime, war crime
Leave all you loved once safely
Sheltered from foes of freedom
Stardom fortune to the fools who

Stand by, setting our souls on fire
My my, watching the world

As it goes through mischief and
Malice and the woes of war
Still some things are worth fighting for
Let death and destruction
Stand your foes before
And Midgard is safer the more
Out of the fire of freedom
And out of the forge of dwarves
To hold in your hand now
And for evermore
I give you the Hammer of Thor

War marches up to your door
If you don't stand before the Giants of Chaos
Once thrown there's no way back
To the way things were before


03. Envy

[instrumental]


04. Brother's Bane

Honor your brother's name, unarmed or blind
Let me aid you in your aim, don't stay behind let's
Maim immortality and death to a deity

There's no reason to defend, nothing can harm him
Let's say it's just pretend, extend your arm and
Bend now this fatal bow and mark with this mistletoe

Your brother's bane
My greed and gain
Your brother's bane
My greed and gain

Grieving, my teeth I grind, I see it now
You mischievous mastermind, for this I vow
You'll pay in a paragon of sorrow, you made my son

His brother's bane
Your greed and gain
His brother's bane
Your greed and gain

Somehow, by good or ill,
Some have their will
And some care not if they kill
Scorching their spirit
So tales are torn apart and cold
Conscience close their heart

Can't save them now
Just kneel and bow
Can't save them now
All die somehow

Your brother's bane
My greed and gain
Your brother's bane
My greed and gain


05. The Burning

[instrumental]


06. The Ride To Hel

Over the ground on the leaving land
We stand united on our way to forever
Under the mound time will take its toll
We fall divided and it seems that we never learn

Who is right
Who is wrong
See the light
Right is always there where we belong

We all died
When you fell
Far and wide
Waiting one to take the ride to Hel

Birds of a feather
What's holding us together
When ways lead north and nether
Through rain and heavy weather we ride

Though mothers cry
Even though fathers try
To raise the dead
The last word said
So we still learn
That there is no return
Back from Hel, back from Hel, from Hel

Try as you may, you can't make all mourn
We're born alone and only death is our dowry
There he will stay, left to wonder why
We die alone into from where there is no return

Who has won
Who has lost
Boldest Son
Sent away and you will count the cost

We all died
When you fell
Far and wide
Waiting one to take the ride to Hel

Betrayn, forsaken
With lies my life was taken
The woes of war awaken
Alone, betrayn, forsaken inside


07. Torsteins Kvæði

Vilja tit lýða og ljóð geva mær, eg bróti av bragdartátti
Kongur ráddi for Nøríki, hann tógva synir átti

Rennur og rennur foli mín
Grønari grund og vín bar reyða lund
Stíg at dansa stund
Kátur leikar foli mín
Á grønari grund

Átt hevur hann sær tógva synir, báðar kann eg væl nevna
Magnus og hann Torstein jall, teir kunna væl
dreingjum stevna

Rennur og rennur foli mín
Grønari grund og vín bar reyða lund
Stíg at dansa stund
Kátur leikar foli mín
Á grønari grund

Jallurin gongur for kongin inn og sigur honum frá
Nú er Torstein, sonur tín, kvittaður londum frá

Rennur og rennur foli mín
Grønari grund og vín bar reyða lund
Stíg at dansa stund
Kátur leikar foli mín
Á grønari grund

Um hann vil av ríkinum fara, eingin skal honum banna
Hann kann ei síni forløg flý, sjálvur má hann tað sanna

Rennur og rennur foli mín
Grønari grund og vín bar reyða lund
Stíg at dansa stund
Kátur leikar foli mín
Á grønari grund

Tað lovaði eg bæði faðir og móðir, tá eg í vøggu lá
Eg skyldi ei ræðast tann heita eld,
ei heldur tað hvassa stál

Rennur og rennur foli mín
Grønari grund og vín bar reyða lund
Stíg at dansa stund
Kátur leikar foli mín
Á grønari grund

Vargurin liggur í vetrarmjøll, staddur í stórari neyð
So er tann maður, í víggi stendur, næstan tolir deyð

Rennur og rennur foli mín
Grønari grund og vín bar reyða lund
Stíg at dansa stund
Kátur leikar foli mín
Á grønari grund

Frúgvin var bæði studd og leidd, inn í sín faðirs veldi
Ljómin skein av akslagrein, tað skyggir av tignareldi

Rennur og rennur foli mín
Grønari grund og vín bar reyða lund
Stíg at dansa stund
Kátur leikar foli mín
Á grønari grund

Nú er hetta kvæðið endað, tað man góðum gegna
Torstein tók við ríkjunum baðum so við hvøru tegna

Rennur og rennur foli mín
Grønari grund og vín bar reyða lund
Stíg at dansa stund
Kátur leikar foli mín
Á grønari grund


08. Grímur Á Miðalnesi

Gevið ljóðið og lýði á
Fátt er um at røða
Bóndin fyrstur heimin bygdi
Harum vil eg kvøða

Vítt um vegir gyltnir hjálmar syngja
Stíga á sínar hestar teir springa
Hoyrast kundi langen veg sum teirra sporar ringja
Vítt um vegir gyltnir hjálmar syngja

Frændir teir á skógin ríða
Við so góðum treysti
Sóu brenna heitan eld
Og hartil fagrar kostir

Vítt um vegir gyltnir hjálmar syngja
Stíga á sínar hestar teir springa
Hoyrast kundi langen veg sum teirra sporar ringja
Vítt um vegir gyltnir hjálmar syngja


09. Wings Of Time

Frændir teir á skógin ríða
Við so góðum treysti
Sóu brenna heitan eld
Og hartil fagrar kostir
Vítt um vegir gyltnir hjálmar syngja
Stíga á sínar hestar teir springa
Hoyrast kundi langen veg sum teirra sporar ringja
Vítt um vegir gyltnir hjálmar syngja

If we live and we die, if it's based on a lie
So we come, we go, who knows just why

Places I've seen in decay
Things that I've known fade away
People I've known never stay
Things that I am yesterday

Frændir teir á skógin ríða
Við so góðum treysti
Sóu brenna heitan eld
Og hartil fagrar kostir
Vítt um vegir gyltnir hjálmar syngja
Stíga á sínar hestar teir springa
Hoyrast kundi langen veg sum teirra sporar ringja
Vítt um vegir gyltnir hjálmar syngja

One thousand years facing your fears
Hide all your doubt deep in the crowd
Unload the blame cover the shame
Cast it all out try to stand proud

Frændir teir á skógin ríða
Við so góðum treysti
Sóu brenna heitan eld
Og hartil fagrar kostir
Vítt um vegir gyltnir hjálmar syngja
Stíga á sínar hestar teir springa
Hoyrast kundi langen veg sum teirra sporar ringja
Vítt um vegir gyltnir hjálmar syngja

If we live and we die, and we live and we die
If we live and we breed our kin to succeed
So we come, we go, and leave our seed

The great wings of time are still in their prime
Maybe in some age to come we shall see
The talons of time take hold of a tree
Time folding its wings, the end of all things

Frændir teir á skógin ríða
Við so góðum treysti
Sóu brenna heitan eld
Og hartil fagrar kostir
Vítt um vegir gyltnir hjálmar syngja
Stíga á sínar hestar teir springa
Hoyrast kundi langen veg sum teirra sporar ringja
Vítt um vegir gyltnir hjálmar syngja


10. The Rage Of The Skullgaffer

[instrumental]


11. The Hunt

Hideaway, I can stay
Mountains cover my way back
One door in each direction from my hall,
my waterfall
Let them come, how come they never

Wonder why I defy
Wish to see them all die black
They do not see a different way alone,
none but their own
They just take, I take it they are close by now

Out hunting for their truth
Out on the fields of insanity after me
Let me be, they'll deceive me, never believe me
In the end we all stand alone

Each keeper of his truth
On our own field of insanity just like me
Let me be, they'll deceive you, never believe you
In the end you're alone

Burn and rave, not so brave
Take him into the cave deep
Now see your own son as I hold
My vow to you and now
Shed a tear and tear his brother

To the bone all alone
No one hearing your moan creep
A paragon of pain and sadness lies never to rise
Bound by guts his guts have left him all by now

Out hunting for their truth
Out on the fields of insanity after me
Let me be, they'll deceive me, never believe me
In the end we all stand alone

Each keeper of his truth
On our own field of insanity just like me
Let me be, they'll deceive you, never believe you
In the end you're alone


12. Victory

[instrumental]


13. Lord Of Lies

Shakes the ground in agony the Lord of Lies
Once for every drop of venom in his eyes
Anger festers in his heart and loud he cries
My revenge will be the end and you will

See me rise, out of fact and friction, Sacrifice
Raise your hands

Truth of prophecies is always in your hands
When you heed her words and do as she commands
Seals your fate and your memorial it stands
All the world ablaze I'll set and you will

See me rise, out of fact and friction, Sacrifice
Raise your hands for my lore
And legend of these lands

Bound upon the ground until the
Day the sun will go away
Three winters snow falls in a row;
Your bonds will break from me

Skelvur jørðin øll og rapa bjørg og fjøll
Brýtur hav um lond og slitena so øll bond

So you stand before the breaking of the world
Gather all your strength in vain for you will

See me rise, out of fact and friction, Sacrifice
Raise your hands for my lore
And legend of these lands

End, it has begun, now I am free,
Your ending sails with me
My serpent son stirs up the sea
The Ship of Nails breaks free.


14. Gjallarhornið

[instrumental]


15. Ragnarok

Tøgn, gomul søgn, forminnis mál
Hevnd og hatur nevnd øvundar bál
Á vígøllum vónin hon doyr
Hátt for heljar grind garmurin goyr

Vindøld, Vargøld er komin
Skeggøld, skølmøld brátt farin er

Ber fram herklæði merkt av mongun strið
Brynju og blankan brand og fram á vøllin ríð
Komi hvat koma má, lat so fara alt
Leingi eg henda dag í huga havi fjalt

Revenge returns to us, this returns to me
We are bound to battle for eternity
The wolf restrained in chains, draping in the deep
This war will throw us corpses in a heap

With heavy hearts we head, on towards the end
I've done all I can, never will I bend
Battle clad we ride, over barren land
Nothing matters on the battlefield we stand

And I heard my unborn children's Requiem
I saw carved upon a stone my epitaph
Sometimes it seems to me there is nothing left between
Me and eternity

Again

With heavy hearts we head on towards the end
I've done all I can, never will I bend
Battle clad we ride, for we have to try
Nothing matters on the battlefield we lie

All will rise again for a better day
Earth green with waterfalls where eagles hunt their prey
Gather our kin against reminiscing times
All seemed at peace all thought that evil died but then the

Dragon with fallen in it's
Feathers entered the world again


16. The End

[instrumental]


17. Valkyries Flight

[instrumental]


18. Valhalla

Faiths and fools will pretend they have the answers to all
In awe they'll defend fictional visions of mist

I never believed in their stories
I never saw sense in their speech
All they ever taught me was hatred

Trough the ages your desolate pages we're forced to learn
Bitter days and your logical maze in return
Through the stages of conscience in cages we bleed and burn
Just take me to Valhalla

Truth and tears of the past haunting my mind as I lay
Alone have at last made up my mind what you are

No learning or logical method
No reason or rhyme in your word
I have learned that nothing is sacred

Take your time, in the end time takes us all we grow
Old and ail, don't pretend you have the answers to all

Don't trouble me with all your worries
Don't tell me were born into sin
Physically and mentally naked

Existential dictatorship when shall we see the days
Come around when you burn to the ground in a blaze
Stay this madness and keep all your sadness inside your maze
Just take me to Valhalla
