1. Blood Of Heroes


Fairest place upon this earth
Ours and all descendants right of birth
All we have of native soil
Owed to tears and sweat of forbears toil

Legends should recall their…

[Chorus:]
Iron will – warrior skill
And how far away they fought
Set us free – destiny
For the blood of heroes bought
Iron will – warrior skill
And how far away they fell
Set us free – destiny
For tonight we dine in Hel

He fell alone
And his name was carved upon a stone
Fire bade him last farewell
Wouldn't mind my name up there as well

Legends might recall my…

[Chorus:]
Iron will – warrior skill
And how far away I fought
Set us free – destiny
For the blood of heroes bought
Iron will – warrior skill
And how far away they fell
Set us free – destiny
For tonight we dine in Hel

[Guitar solo]

2. Mare Of My Night


The cold of night falls on a fleeting evening's air
As I lie down beside the sweet scent of her hair
The night steels inside and soon I sail the seas of sleep
Where ancient shadows slither in the darkened deep

[Pre-chorus:]
My goddess withdrew and a nightmare came true

[Chorus:]
The mare of my night
Painfully she lies upon me
In my darkest hour she is there
A religious rite
Lustfully she goes down on me
In her eyes I see the fires flare
The mare of my night

Terror takes me now she rides me like a mare
I slide in ever deeper sweat-drenched in despair
I pray she won't play the painful passage on my flute
She sucked me dry and left me nameless in the nude

[Pre-Chorus]

3. Hel Hath No Fury


Some things we cannot mend
And good times always come to an end
Here at the dawn of a day a painful path
Unfolds before my eyes

So if you will, mortal men, remain
Fly me away, chooser of the slain
Above the blood drenched fields
Of furious battle high the fairest flies

I pulled her arrow from out my heart
We wandered already worlds apart
And I have seen the heavens hold no rage
Like love to hatred turned
The gods may grant me a brighter day
There's more where that came from anyway
Life holds no promises nor Hel a fury
Like a woman scorned

Faith was the star that fell
It may forebode our last farewell
Still others shine their height
And hopeful light on distant shores at dawn

Our days are all but a ghost of grey
And I am already far away
For I have walked alone in shadow
Since my goddess has withdrawn

I pulled her arrow from out my heart
We wandered already worlds apart
And I have seen the heavens hold no rage
Like love to hatred turned
The gods may grant me a brighter day
There's more where that came from anyway
Life holds no promises nor Hel a fury
Like a woman scorned
Life holds no promises nor Hel a fury
Like a woman scorned


4. The Lay Of Our Love


One morning
As the leaves were falling
I found my life leaving
Couldn't help but calling
And he must have heard my cry
Turning to me with a tear in his eye

One autumn
Parting came relieving
She ran up behind me
Poorly hid her grieving
Come wailing wind chill my heart
Come the rain fall on me as I depart

Life left us
Yesterday's outshining
Our any tomorrow
With a silver lining
Remember a distant day
For even memories may fade away

Come lay down
By my side and sing me
An ode to the fallen
Make it come inside me
Do you ever think thereof
While the cold wind weeps the lay of our love


5. Nation


[Dedicated to the People of Iceland and to the memory of Ingólfur Júlíusson]

All that I had
In which I took delight
Out of sight
All that of which I dreamt
All that I was longing for
Now lost somewhere in time
Hidden in a heathen rhyme

Dreams that hold a nation

Time comes to turn
Misfortunes back around
Gaining ground
Time will return for dreams
Time for what we're longing for
By law we built this land
Would that it forever stand

Dreams that hold a nation

Allt, sem þjóðin átti og naut
Allt, sem hana dreymur
Allt, sem hún þráði og aldrei hlaut
Alþýðustakan geymir
[English translation:]
All that the nation had and enjoyed
All that it dreams of
All that it longed for and never had
Is kept in folklore


6. Another Fallen Brother


Weary wanderers
Marching on and on
What I used to be
Now seems so long gone

Whether it's right or it's wrong

Cry havoc heathens
No quarter for the other
Valhalla here comes
Another fallen brother

This day will be my renown
In death I will go down
And we charge across the field
Though the resistance is strong
This is where I belong
For my fate has long been sealed

In the thick of it
Comes our time to die
They have come for us
See them fly up high

Look at me choosers of the slain

Cry havoc heathens
No quarter for the other
Valhalla here comes
Another fallen brother

This day will be my renown
In death I will go down
And we charge 'cross the field
Though the resistance is strong
This is where I belong
For my fate has long been sealed


7. Grindavísan


[Dedicated to Paul Watson]

Raske drenge grind at dræbe
Det er vor lyst

Godmodig er han som han er stærk
Han kender ikke sin vælde
Ellers måtte sit dristige værk
Forfølgeren snart undgælde

Raske drenge grind at dræbe
Det er vor lyst

Her de kyster af hviden sand
Hinanden sig broderlig nærme
Og indeslutte det stille vand
Som høje fjelde beskærme

Raske drenge grind at dræbe
Det er vor lyst

[English translation:]

[The Ballad Of The Grind]

Healthy lads grind to kill
That's what we like

Good-natured is he as he is strong
He does not know his might
Otherwise for his daring work
The hunter would soon be punished

Healthy lads grind to kill
That's what we like

Here the beaches of white sand
Each other brotherly approach
And enclose the still water
That high mountains defend

Healthy lads grind to kill
That's what we like


8. Into The Sky


Gone is all my pain
I called her down
As I lay among the slain
I'm unrejected

Come my Valkyrie take me into the sky
Up where heroes of the north go when they die
Forever be our victory
Come my Valkyrie on high

And though I fell
She raised me up.
Made my foes all dwell in Hel
I'm resurrected

Come my Valkyrie take me into the sky
Up where heroes of the north go when they die
Forever be our victory
Come my Valkyrie on high

With sword in hand 
On heathen land

Come my Valkyrie take me into the sky
Up where heroes of the north go when they die
Forever be our victory
Come my Valkyrie on high


9. Fánar Burtur Brandaljóð


Fánar burtur brandaljóð
Lokin er mín sigursferð
Hifar at tøla tað floygda fljóð
Eingin er líki hennar í hesu verð

Farið havi ey fjart um lond
Handan hav og høgu fjøll
Higar at tøla ta liljuvond
Einsamøll steig hon á mín feigdarvøll

Burtur frá hesari jarðargrund
Yvir høv og háfjøll køld
Flýgur meg fagrasta menjarsprund
Endar øld handan høgu stjørnufjøld

[English translation:]

[The Sound Of Swords Fades]

Fades the sound of swords
My tour of victory is over
Here to score the flying woman
There's none like her in this world

I have traveled far over lands
Beyond ocean and high mountains
Here to score the amazing woman
Alone she trod upon my field of death

Away from this ground
Over oceans and high mountains cold
Flies me the fairest woman
Ages end beyond high star crowd


10. Lady Of The Slain


Wanton wager
On a war torn way
Take my treasure
For another day

Fettered felines and a battle swine
Feast like there's no future now, showing no restraint
Mead and mayhem, golden drink divine
Let me in your heathen hall, lady of the slain

Tears of red gold she cries
Tales have her realm far beyond the skies
And if a battle was your demise
May come the night when you see she cries
Tears of red gold

Pain and pleasure
My reality
Life of leisure
Or a fantasy

Burning beauty hung above her breast
Moments in her company, high and holy pain
Flaming fairness, I will find no rest
Until I have reached your hall, lady of the slain

Tears of red gold she cries
Tales have her realm far beyond the skies
And if a battle was your demise
May come the night when you see she cries
Tears of red gold


11. Valkyrja


Once I had a vision and a light
Something worth my aspiration and a fight
And there was a time when all this only seemed
Like some sky-aspiring vision I had dreamed

Faded grey are all the days of yesteryears
So much time has turned to memories and to tears
Lately I have often sat and thought till dawn
Of the days that are to come and those forgone

Seemed my time had passed me by
Like clouds across the sky
I was lost just like a raven in the night
Most dreams waste away alas
Mine all have come to pass
Since I laid my eyes upon my guiding light

Valkyrja
Valkyrja

Late is now the hour of the day
And I've long ago run out of words to say
Deep within I had the will to find a way
Others fled to fight again some other day

I've heard said that all is fair in love and war
That a golden key can open any door
And remember if you feel all hope is gone
That the darkest hour comes just before the dawn

Seemed my time had passed me by
Like clouds across the sky
I was lost just like a raven in the night
Most dreams waste away alas
Mine all have come to pass
Since I laid my eyes upon my guiding light

Valkyrja
Valkyrja
Valkyrja


12. Where Eagles Dare


[originally by Iron Maiden]

It's snowing outside the rumbling sound
Of engines roar in the night
The mission is near the confident men
Are waiting to drop from the sky

The blizzard goes on but still they must fly
No one should go where eagles dare
Bavarian alps that lay all around
They seem to stare from below
The enemy lines a long time passed
Are lying deep in the snow

Into the night they fall through the sky
No one should fly where eagles dare

They're closing in the fortress is near
It's standing high in the sky
The cable car's the only way in
It's really impossible to climb

They make their way but maybe too late
They've got to try to save the day

The panicking cries the roaring of guns
Are echoing all round the valley
The mission complete the make to escape
Away from the eagles nest

They dared to go where no one would try
They chose to fly where eagles dare


13. Cemetery Gates


[originally by Pantera]

Reverend reverend is this some conspiracy?
Crucified for no sins
An image beneath me
Whats within our plans for life
It all seems so unreal
I'm a man cut in half in this world
Left in my misery...

The reverend he turned to me
Without a tear in his eyes
It's nothing new for him to see
I didn't ask him why
I will remember
The love our souls had
Sworn to make
Now I watch the falling rain
All my mind can see
Now is your (face)

Well I guess
You took my youth
I gave it all away
Like the birth of a
New-found joy
This love would end in rage
And when she died
I couldn't cry
The pride within my soul
You left me incomplete
Memories now unfold.

Believe the word
I will unlock my door
And pass the
Cemetery gates

Sometimes when I'm alone
I wonder aloud
If you're watching over me
Some place far abound
I must reverse my life
I can't live in the past
Then set my soul free
Belong to me at last

Through all those
Complex years
I thought I was alone
I didn't care to look around
And make this world my own
And when she died
I should've cried and spared myself some pain...
Left me incomplete
All alone as the memories still remain

The way we were
The chance to save my soul
And my concern is now in vain
Believe the word
I will unlock my door
And pass the cemetery gates
