01. Tomb Of The Serpent King / Butchers Of The Sea

As the fearless voyagers arrive
Everyone runs for their lives
Holgar and his Vikings come this night
Dare oppose them and you'll die
Butchers of the sea

Fighting for the praise of Nordic Gods
Seeking entry to The Hall
Running from the plague of Christian law
In Odin's name they fall
Butchers of the sea

Destiny does drive them cross the sea
In the service of their king
Wisdom came from hanging on The Tree
For Valhalla they shall bleed
Butchers of the sea


02. Frost And Fire

Nordic sons true to their faith set to sea
Running from conversion proclaimed by the King

Blasphemy, come to the shores of Iceland
Family murdered by Christendom's hand

Funeral pyre in the land of midnight sun
Frost and fire, bloody revenge now is done


03. Tree Of Life

Climbing up The Tree
Ladder to the light
So many names have thee
All-Father of life
Searching for the truth

Hanging from The Tree
Contemplating life
Tis knowledge that we seek
Wisdom for an eye
Searching for the truth

Looking to the stars
Each and every night
Wondering who we are
Always asking why

Can't you see what it means?
Can't you believe in The Tree?

Branching to nine worlds
Connected by three planes
The mighty Yggdrasil
Tree of life and pain

Can't you see what it means?
Can't you believe in The Tree?

Hanging from The Tree
All-Father of life


04. Blood Eagle

Death and Honor - Drive them onward
Out of Iceland - Butcher's sail
Unto Greenland - Then to Vineland
Search for true faith - No avail

In this outland - Known as Vineland
Faith's conversion - Still prevails
Holgar's Vikings - Slay the Skraelings
Vineland's Bishop - Screams and wails

Bishop Eric curses the old ways
Taking Thor and Odin's name in vain
Demanding conversion of Holgar
Condemning the crew of Voyager

For Odin
For Asgard
Holgar proclaims
His judgment
Blood Eagle
Slow death and pain

For vengeance
In Thor's name
Eric shall die
Creeping death
Blood Eagle
Cast to Helheim

Sons of the night - Sent to Helheim
This dark Bishop - Black evil
Bound and tortured - Chest carved open
Viking slow death - Blood Eagle


05. Voyager

Lo there do I see the All-Father
Upon the mist the ancient ones
Lo there do I see in Valhalla
The Thunder God, Odin's son

Lo there do I see across the water
A brave new world for me and you
Lo there do I see the Voyager
A dragon-ship of dreams come true

You can have your peace
No straw death for me

To unknown seas
Voyager brings
The Man-God King
Lord of doom
Bound by truth
Like the runes
On the tomb
We do sing

Asaheim's hero's sail to the ends of the earth
As the Valkyries watch o'er the Voyager

Hear the battle cries
As the Skraelings die
Draw your sword this night

Raise the banners on high
Up the hammers and fight

All-Father's warriors sail to the edge of the world
Staying true to their faith in Thor's Hammer

To unknown seas
Voyager brings
The Man-God King
Lord of doom
Bound by truth
Like the runes
On the tomb
We do sing

Asaheim's hero's sail to the ends of the earth
As the Valkyries watch o'er the Voyager
All-Father's warriors sail to the edge of the world
Staying true to their faith in Thor's Hammer

Hear the battle cries
As the Skraelings die
Draw your sword this night

Raise the banners on high
Up the hammers and fight

Asaheim's hero's sail to the ends of the earth
As the Valkyries watch o'er the Voyager
All-Father's warriors sail to the edge of the world
Staying true to their faith in Thor's Hammer

Raise the banners on high
Up the hammers and fight


06. Eye Of The Storm

Sailing south to waters never seen
By western man of any creed
Searching for a place to be free
From Christian hate and blasphemy

Sky turns black as dark clouds form
Tempests blow the sails are torn
Come the waves in thunderous roar
Old Man Sea brings about his scorn

Underneath protection of Thor
Directed by a distant horn
Voyager makes way to shore
Sailing through the eye of the storm


07. Return Of The Serpent King

Up in the sky All-Father's eyes
The ravens fly out of the storm
Saved by horn sounded by Thor
Faith in the light now is restored

Sacrificial hearts are burned
As the Serpent King returns
He'll await the call unto the fall
Come Ragnarok

The Toltec's came to meet the waves
That brought the Gods back to their shore
Mistaken for Man-God of lore
Voyager's fate cast by The Norns

Through the jungles, mist and fog
To the city build by Gods
Sacrificial hearts are burned
As the Serpent King returns
He'll await the call unto the fall
In Valhalla

The Serpent King Holgar is deemed
The Lord of Doom come from the storm
Led by the sword the Toltec horde
Follows their king's conquest of war

Through the jungles, mist and fog
To the city build by Gods
Sacrificial hearts are burned
As the Serpent King returns
He'll await the call unto the fall
In Valhalla


08. Conquest

Teaching the art of warfare
Holgar begins his crusade
Tula to Chichen Iza
The Man-God King leads the way

For Valhalla
Vikings onward
Bloody conquest
Unto his death

Upon the sacred skull rack
The heads of enemy kings
Sacrificed to the ancients
For victory's they did bring

For Valhalla
Vikings onward
Bloody conquest
Unto his death

For Valhalla
Vikings onward
Bloody conquest
Unto his death


09. Totentanz (The Dance Of Death)

Destiny drove him across the seas
Finding a new world in his quest to be free
Tribes of this brave world stand firm in belief
Who followed the Man-God unto his defeat

Defenders of the faith
Voyager's quest
Totentanz for the king
The dance of death

The dance of death
Defender of the faith
Voyager's quest
Totentanz for the king
The dance of death

Dance for the serpent, dance for the king
Who conquered the new world in search of a dream
Unto Valhalla the Valkyries bring
The soul of The Butcher the Man-God King

Defender of the faith
Voyager's quest
Totentanz for the king
The dance of death

The dance of death
Defender of the faith
The dance of death
Voyager so brave
The dance of death
Defender of the faith
The dance of death
Voyager so brave
