01. Twilight Of The Thunder God

There comes Fenris'twin
His jaws are open wide
The serpent rises from the waves

Jormungandr twists and turns
Mighty in his wrath
The eyes are full of primal hate

Thor! Oden's son
Protector of mankind
Ride to meet your fate
Your destiny awaits
Thor! Hlödyn's son
Protector of mankind
Ride to meet your fate
Ragnarök awaits

Vingtor rides to face
The snake with hammer high
At the edge of the world

Both of lightnings fills the air
As mjöllner does its work
The dreadful serpent roars in pain

Thor! Oden's son
Protector of mankind
Ride to meet your fate
Your destiny awaits
Thor! Hlödyn's son
Protector of mankind
Ride to meet your fate
Ragnarök awaits

Mighty Thor grips the snake
Firmly by its tongue
Lifts his hammer high to strike
Soon his work is done
Vingtor sends the giant snake
Bleeding to the depth
Twilight of the thundergod
Ragnarök awaits
Twilight of the thundergod
Twilight of the thundergod
Twilight of the thundergod

Thor! Oden's son
Protector of mankind
Ride to meet your fate
Your destiny awaits
Thor! Hlödyn's son
Protector of mankind
Ride to meet your fate
Ragnarök awaits


02. Free Will Sacrifice

See them gathered on the plains now
See an army strong and vast
As long as one of us remains here
None of them will never pass

Here they come so raise the shields high
Like wolves they show their teeth
None of us will ever yield now
To the scavengers beneath

We're outnumbered ten to one here
Still, I love the odds
We will sacrifice them one by one
Send them off to the gods

Soon we will be gone
A free will sacrifice
As free men we are born
And free we shall die

Here they come ten thousand strong
Charging up to the hill
This day will be both hard and long
They move in for the kill

Hold the line don't let it break
Use your sword and spear
A glory death, for all awaits
All who knows no fear

Hoards of men they hit the shields
Like waves they break away
We face our woven destiny
And we don't fear the grave

Soon we will be gone
A free will sacrifice
As free men we are born
And free we shall die


03. Guardians Of Asgaard

Standing firm against all odds
Guarding the most sacred home
We protect the realm of gods
Our destiny is carved in stone

Three evil giants
Of the south
Are constantly on the attack

With lies and fire
From their mouths
But we always send them back

We are brothers
Of the north
Who are sharing the all father's blood

Marching down the left hand path
We are spawned by asagods
'Cause we are!

We're the guardians
Guardians of Asgaard
Guardians
Guardians of Asgaard
Guardians
Of Asgaard

We have faced our
Enemies
A thousand times or even more

Still they cannot
Make us kneel
One thousand years of constant war

The giants look for
Any chance
To bring down Asgaard's mighty walls

No matter what they send at us
We will never left it fall
'Cause we are

We're the guardians
Guardians of Asgaard
Guardians
Guardians of Asgaard
Guardians
Of Asgaard

Standing firm
Against all odds
We are guarding
Asgaard's mighty walls
We protect
The realm of asagods
No matter
What they send at us
We will never let them fall

We're the guardians
Guardians of Asgaard
Guardians
Guardians of Asgaard
Guardians
Of Asgaard


04. Where Is Your God?

The enemy has come for you
Hear the pounding thunder hooves
There's no time for run or hide
Draw the weapon from your side

When they ride out from morning mist
With sharp blades in mighty fists
One hundred warriors on horses
An awesome brutal force

You feel weak and scared
Fear has gripped your heart
You will soon be over run
You will soon be torn apart!

Now, where is your god?
Does he hear your prayers?
Does he even care for you?
His silence speaks loud and clear

Raid is done!
See the country burn
All are gone!
Only misery remains
Raid is done!
The warriors return
All are gone!
All that's left is pain

The vikings strike so fast and hard
Those who run won't make it far
And whose who chose to stand and fight
They have made the choice to die

The weapons tear
Through flesh and bone
Dying men that scream and moan
With severed limbs
To the hall of death

The battlefield is full of death
Feel the stench of rotting flesh
When the entire country burns
As the warriors return

And they came out
From morning mist
With sharp blades in mighty fists
They leave this land
All burned and scorn
Those alive will mourn

Now, where is your god?
Does he hear your prayers?
Does he even care for you?
His silence speaks loud and clear

Raid is done!
See the country burn
All are gone!
Only misery remains
Raid is done!
The warriors return
All are gone!
All that's left is pain
Raid is done!
See the country burn
Only misery remains
All are gone
Warriors return,
All that's left in pain
Where is your god?
Does he hear your prayers?
Does he even care for you?
Where is your god?
Does he hear your prayers?
A silence loud and clear


05. Varyags Of Miklagaard

Miklagaard has been our home
For twenty years or more
We've lent our axes, spears and swords
In service of the emperor

We are loyal warriors
That's the oath we gave
To protect the emperor
Even to a violent grave

Our loyalty was always firm
We kept our given sword
On this southern battlefields
Our northern war cries roared

Battles have been fought
Many gave their lives
But all who died by axe or sword
We're called to hall up high

Our time here
Is now at end
Can't help but reminisce
A cold spring day
So long ago
When we set out to see

We!
Set out from Svitjod's
Shores!
With dreams of fame and
Gold!
And!
The work of weaving
Norns!
Was unknown

We are loyal warriors
That's the oath we gave
To protect the emperor
Even to a violent grave

It's time to take farewell
We have been resolved
From the sacred oath we gave
It's time to go back home

Our time here
Is now at end
Our memories will stay
Of Miklagaard
Our southern home
Until the end of days

We!
Set out from Svitjod's
Shores!
With honour and
Rewards!
We return back home!
With honour and
Rewards!
We return back home!


06. Tattered Banners And Bloody Flags

There comes Lopt, the treacherous, lusting for revenge
He leads the legions of the dead, toward the Aesir's realm

They march in full battle dress, with faces grim and pale
Tattered Banners And Bloody Flags, rusty spears and blades

Cries ring out,loud and harsh, from cracked and broken horns
Long forgotten battle cries, in strange and foreign tongues

Spear and sword clash rhythmically, against the broken shields they beat
They bring their hate and anarchy, onto Vigrid's battlefield

There comes Lopt, the treacherous, he stands against the gods
His army grim and ravenous, lusting for their blood

Nowhere is longer safe
The earth moves under our feet
The great world tree Yggdrasil
Trembles to its roots

Sons of Muspel gird the field
Behind them Midgard burns
Hrym'horde march from Niffleheim
And the Fenris wolf returns

Heimdall grips the gjalladhorn, he sounds that dreaded note
Oden rides to quest the Norns, but their web is torn
The Aesir rides out to war, with armor shining bright
Followed by the Einherjer, see valkyries ride

Nowhere is longer safe
The earth moves under our feet
The great world tree Yggdrasil
Trembles to its roots

Sons of Muspel gird the field
Behind them Midgard burns
Hrym'horde march from Niffleheim
And the Fenris wolf returns


07. No Fear For The Setting Sun

I'm out of breath,
And all my muscles ache
It feels like spikes
With every step I take

My heart beats
It's about to burst
This day my
Luck turned to the worse

There's nowhere to run
Darkness is closing in
I don't fear the setting sun
Or the twilight that it brings
Dark clouds fill the sky
My fate is close at hand
Today is the day that I die
Today I make my final stand

I fought so hard
For taste of victory
The war is lost
But I refuse to kneel

I can't go back now
There is no retreat
I will fight hard for
All that I believe

I'm out of breath,
And all my muscles ache
It feels like spikes
With every step I take

I can't go back now
There is no retreat
I will fight
Till death
I make my final charge

I,
Make my final charge
I,
Have no fear in heart
I,
Will no longer run
I,
Do not fear the dark

There's nowhere to run
Darkness is closing in
I don't fear the setting sun
Or the twilight that it brings
Dark clouds fill the sky
My fate is close at hand
Today is the day that I die
Today I make my final stand


08. The Hero

The blade I swing is black as night
Black as my soulless heart
It bears the burden of many lives
But I don't feel remorse

I lent my sword to anyone
Willing to pay the price
No regrets for what I've done
A mercenary's life

But there I was on battleground
Until I felt the jaws of death
Cut into my flesh
Defending old and weak
But I did not retreat

Now, here I lie in my own blood
And strangers cry for me
I'm prepared to meet the gods
I wish they'd let me be

I don't deserve their sympathy
I know who I am
My soul is death and misery
I am an evil man

I rest in my blood
Soon I will face the gods
Strangers cry for me
I wish they'd let me be

Show no sympathy
Shed no tears for me
I know who I am
I am an evil man

I know who I am
I am an evil man


09. Live For The Kill

The pack of wolves
Are closing in
Now, hear the howling beasts
They move fast
Through winter woods
And soon it's time to feast

A vicious hunt
On through the night
The prey is short of breath
They feel the sting
Of burning eyes
That's fixed upon their necks

A predator's heart
Knows no remorse
It lives for the hunt
A predator's heart
Knows no remorse
It lives for the hunt
A natural force

They show their sharp
And grinning teeth
As howls are setting higher
Sending chills
Down fleeing spines
Their blood runs hot as fire

The victorious chase
Is soon at the end
They're hunted until death
They feel the pain
Of sharpened steel
That's cutting through their flesh

Fearless warriors
Feed the wolves
Now hear the howling beasts
They move fast
Through winter hoods
See the grey-backs feast

A natural force
It knows no remorse
And lives for the kill


10. Embrace Of The Endless Ocean

I stroke the blade with my hands
The sharp edge cut the skin
Blood drips to the rain wet stand
My journey can begin

Once a slave but now I'm free
My honor is restored
Once again I'll ride the seas
Free at last from whip and oar

I slide the sword into the shied
The ocean god is hailed
And as we push out to the sea
We raise the red striped sails

I've missed the breeze, of my home shores
The frozen lakes, and winter snow
But now my dreams starts to unfold
Father, I'm coming home

The storm came down without remorse
And water crashed the rails
The ship was thrown back and forth
As strong winds ripped the sails

The icy waves embrace my skin
I am going numb
The endless ocean swallows me
This will be my colt wet tomb

Won't feel the breeze, of my home shores
Nor see the lakes, or winter snow
My hopeful dreams lie ripped and torn
Father, I die alone
