01. The Quest (Intro)

(instrumental)


02. Tales From The North

Oh please, Odin, tell us the secret
Why the Vikings were
The conquerors of the North
The winners of all wars

At the nightfall, Hugin and Munin
Whisper in your ears
All the secrets of the world
All they've seen and heard

Tell us about Thor, god of thunder
Tyr, god of war
Goddess Hela was death
The unlighted world she ruled

Can you see my secret illusion
To break the social links?
I wanna see these heavy chains
Dropped from my hands

Can't you see my misery?
Will I stay behind or ahead?
Should I live my life in compromise?
Will I stay behind or ahead?

Oh please, Odin, tell us the secret
Why the Vikings were
True defenders of the faith
In fighting times they lived

Tell us about the god of darkness
Baldur, god of light
Loki was the evil one
The father of the sin

Can't you see my misery?
Will I stay behind or ahead?
Should I live my life in compromise?
Will I stay behind or ahead?


03. Asgard

Norsemen hearts belong to you
Ancient god of war
You have created a sacred world
In Asgard is your throne
Time has come to praise the god

Crazy beings were living there
In superstitious fear
Angry gods would ever cause
Pestilence or war
Time has come to praise, it has come
Do it over and over again
Praise him for the upcoming war
You won't feel astray
He's got power in his hand
So cry aloud his name

Odin used to overlook
From the exalted throne
Gazed towards south and west
The goal of all the hopes
Time has come to praise, it has come
Do it over and over again
Praise him for the upcoming war
You won't feel astray
He's got power in his hand
So cry aloud his name

Asgard protects the warriors
Asgard, shelter of gods

Evil grew among the gods
Holy Asgard fault
No one praise, it started now
The twilight of the gods
Time has come to praise, it has come
Do it over and over again
Praise him for the upcoming war
You won't feel astray
He's got power in his hand
So cry aloud his name

Asgard protects the warriors
Asgard, shelter of gods


04. Gods Of The Sea

No here now comes the lord
In his deep blue eyes
The secret of the world
See Ran is over him
She's looking for the gold
Vessels carry on

Sea, it is the way to glory
Sea, it is the sailor grave
Sea, it is the way to glory
Now the waves are crying

They were daring men from the icy land
And they've tried to find a future in this storm

Please, old god of the sea,
Take away the pain
From your vast domain
Ran, goddess of the dark
We don't wanna reach
The bottom of the sea

Sea, it is the way to glory
Sea, it is the sailor grave
Sea, it is the way to glory
Now the waves are crying

They were daring men from the icy land
And they've tried to find a future in this storm

See the siren maiden sits
With shining, golden hair
Lorelei she's named
No, the mariner is lost
The enchanting melodies
Are evil songs of death

Sea, it is the way to glory
Sea, it is the sailor grave
Sea, it is the way to glory
Now the waves are crying

Gold, on sweetheart ramblings
Powerful is and pleasant
Who goes empty-handed
Down to sea-blue ran
Cold her kiss strike,
And fleeing her embrace is
But we ocean's bride be
Troth with purest gold

They were daring men from the icy land
And they've tried to find a future in this storm


05. Viking's Tomb

Will I step out from this dark world
And awake to life
And hardly fight until the Valkyries came?
And I've seen bleeding warriors falling down
And I wish to be one of the chosen slain

Suddenly, the world turns grey
Death's like a cold embrace
Icy drop in my face

Suddenly the war is out
They've fought it day by day
On the floor they have found
The Viking's body laying

And all the knights have tried the warriors to revive
Sad-hearted, they prepare
The King's funeral pyre

The fire is burning high
Sea and sky on fire
Valhalla's open gates
Are waiting for the brave

And all the knights draw near
They wanna say goodbye
Through gods he will enjoy the eternal life

Oh, oh
See, see the drakkar sails alone
Now it has become the Viking's tomb


06. Kriemhild Story

Kriemhild princess was the young, beautiful daughter
Of the king and the queen of Burgundy
One day, the valiant Siegfried came to her court
The noble prince she would love and marry

They were as happy as only lovers can be
Ten years gone by, in peace they were living
She couldn't know the cruel Hagen had a plot
Her husband's death, Siegfried the hero

He deceived the gentle queen
Her husband's secret she revealed
Then he met the poor Siegfried
Through his body he drove his spear

She feel senseless upon him
Cursing Hagen's treachery
She'd avenge her dead beloved
Kriemhild's mourning had just begun


07. The Killing Queen

Kill the fierce, her only deep desire
She waited years, her anger getting higher
No way, she wanted revenge

Hagen knew, he left the land forever
He was well aware, he had slain the hero
Its guilt he'll never deny

Nor could the king
Stop the killing queen
Time was for sure
Only an evil truce

Watch out

The queen bosom swelled with fury and anger
Didn't care how many lives were ended
Their lives she will never spare

Day by day the cruel queen was planning
Her invitation to the bloody slaughter
No way, she wanted revenge

Nor could the king
Stop the killing queen
Time was for sure
Only an evil truce


08. The Terrible Slaughter

Now it's all done
She made up her mind and she's still believing
The last knight's gone
He promised the queen he would kill the evil

Once more, brave knights fell on every side
Once more, they fought in such deadly earnest
But no one was able to be back again
No one could survive

Long before
She was a lovely, gentle maiden
Then she turned
Into a monster
She don't surrender

In spite of the terrible slaughter she caused
Kriemhild's lust was not appeased
She couldn't forget the day Siegfried died
She couldn't forget that day

Kriemhild's hatred killed them all
But it has no sense at all
'Cause too many innocents fell

The story's end
She cut off the had of the hated Hagen
One knight came
Exasperated, he slew the queen

In spite of the terrible slaughter she caused
Kriemhild's lust was not appeased
She couldn't forget the day Siegfried died
She couldn't forget that day

Kriemhild's hatred killed them all
But it has no sense at all
'Cause too many innocents fell


09. Horant

Now the time has come, the demons approach
In their Satan eyes, there's Satan's course
But King Horant always says, "It will be all right!"
He won't reach the Odin's reign
He will win the fight

The world has got it wrong and we see the outcome
My heart began to flutter in this bloodstorm
But King Horant always says, "It will be all right!"
He won't reach the Odin's reign
He will win the fight

Horant always says the same
Time has come for the brave
Just time to say a quick hello
Time has come for the war

Now the time has come, the demons approach
In their Satan eyes, there's Satan's course
But King Horant always says, "It will be all right!"
He won't reach the Odin's reign
He will win the fight

Horant always says the same
Time has come for the brave
Just time to say a quick hello
Time has come for the brave


10. Fighting And Feasting

The northern warriors pray
The hurted bodies raise
Tyr, god of war, they praise

He's really proud to fall
Fall under the sharp blade
The only way to die

They vowed to die arms in hand (in hand)
Valhalla joys waiting for them

White-armed maidens named
The chosen of the slain
Will take them to the Reign

They fill the heroes' horns
Someone looks like a skull
The drink of the gods they taste

Fighting hardly the heroes die
But the wounds are healed
Feasting the heroes days
They will live forever
Oh, oh


11. Here We Are

I have heard the prophecy
It's about to be fulfilled
Hard's the world the sinners grow
And the man no longer spare

Feel the breeze of severe winds
Three full seasons without breaks
Seething flames, burning hills
World is lost in venom flood

Too late the gods realized who I am
In many shapes, I threaten the man
My daughter's Hel, goddess of death
Chaos has now its former shape

Here we are
Raise

Bore with them the germ of death
Gods are doomed to be slain
Hard is the world sinner grows
And the man no longer spare

I have seen the tragedy
Will the gods be back again?
Seething flames, burning hills
World is lost in venom flood

Too late the gods realized who I am
In many shapes, I threaten the man
My daughter's Hel, goddess of death
Chaos has now its former shape

Here we are
Raise
