Track Name: Pagans Of The North
Feel the air vibrate when we are near.
The drums will sound
and your legs loose strength from fear.
Excitement grows
as you encounter gods of men,
with beards, muscles, and the power of ten.
Neither women or soldier can withstand our charge
our power of destructive seduction is large.
From where are these divine men ascending, you ask.
Take a drink, you must know,
I will tell you who we are

We are the pagans
from the north
We love to drink
and fair women behold
We love when tales
of our bravery be told


We are the pagans
from the north
We love our beards
and our brutal height
smell of the sea
and salted fish
is our delight

see the end of imprisonment come close
as your men meet us in battle they lose.
We set a new standard of male behavior
women, hail us as your bearded saviors
Our skills in combat, bed and feasts
cannot be matched
our wish you better heed or see your heads smashed.
From where are these divine men ascending, you ask.
Take a drink, you must know
I will tell you who we are
Track Name: Sindres Saga II War Of The Smith
Finally the war has come
Invade the people of old we sang
Burn their forests, kill their men
Rape their women
enslave their young.
Feast on their wine
their lives is now ours.
There are no rights
just the pleasure of ours.
Torture their children
fuck all their wives
But bring me the smith untouched

War of the smith
Shape all our fates
No lives can match his worth

To the dark lands of Nifelhel
you must travel
Through the mighty gate of bones.
Far past the macabre ship of nails

Say farewell to Sun
may her picture follow you there
Pray to Tyr the brave
to keep you safe from fear

Swim through the lake of poison
Avoid the dark queen in her lair
Her malice tear flesh from bone
No man should see his woman
ripped off her clothes
and raped
crawling on the ground
with nothing more to give
As her scream fades out
you hear her last words in life

Vidfarne, I hold you dear
Please forgive me
leaving you here
In Nifelhel I´ll wait
wandering the lands of dead
Don´t rush as my spirit
shall linger there for you

Finally the journey has begun
Find the smith of legends sung
Burn the bridges
resist their search
Mutilate their men
make them fear you

Make them bleed
let nothing hold you back.
Find the smith
his spawn shall rise
Hold the fire burning
hear her cry
In the darkness
she still waits for you
Track Name: Crystal Skies
We've sailed by the shores of Córdoba
To make our travels worthwhile
Algarve and Seville beware
Your mothers and daughters will burn

For ages our longships prevailed
No saints brings the victor this hour
With swords and shields
in our hands
Come, destiny
and prove your mettle

Cursed men
Victors feast
Free all the chaos you've left deep inside
Make them bleed
Virgins scream
Show them your hate for their unworthy gods

Lightning fills the sky
A powerful battle prize
Ridden by almighty cries
Tell me, what do we say
when the world is ours?
Maybe the wars
will end tomorrow.
Leave some alive
We'll take them
by autumn. Farewell.

When the wind is blowing correctly
We'll leave this shattered earth
To return with gold
The north awaits us soon
Leave some alive
for the autumns
Cursed be the plunderless years
For crystal skies await
And we'll become
Heavenless sprites

Far over the crystal skies
The mead will be flowing for heavenless sprites
Cursed be the days of plunderless hours
Born from a god in a womb of true power
Track Name: Tvenne Korpar
Mörker er dölja
Fast i ljus ni står
Kärlek till godhet er leda
Predikar ni ivrigt
Men falskt klinga orden
Era handlingar är de motsatta
Röken från bålen
Och skriken därvid
Aldrig någonsin lämna vår värld
Ej liven ni tagit
För trohetens strid
Men mig ni kalla för hedning

Ett omen av vad komma skall

Genom nio världar
Tvenne korpar färdas
Över land och över hav
Går tvenne korpars färd

Kring nyresta bålet
De radades upp
Läkekvinnor
skulle brännas först
Uråldrig visdom
kallad häxeri
Hel väntar med utsträckta armar
Stoiskt står dem
Stadigt fast
Blott ett yttrande av dessa ord
En förbannelse
Av fordom kraft
"Må era stordåd skrivas i vatten!"

Elden från skogen
Och skriken därvid
komma att spridas in i er värld
Öga för öga
Och tand för en tand
Ni skola kalla mig hedning
Två korpar de flyga
Från asars stora sal
Hugin och Munin visdom samlar
Mot väringars bane
Korparna flyga
Ravnsmerki väringar leda

(English Translation from swedish)

Darkness conceals you
Though in the light you stand
Love of goodness leads you
Preach ye eagerly
But how false sounds the words
When your actions are the opposite
The smoke from the pyres
And the screams thereby
Never ever leave our world
Not the lives you have taken
In the battle of faith
But yet you call me a heathen

An omen of things to come

Through the nine worlds
Two ravens journey
Over land and over sea
The two ravens journey leads

Around newbuilt pyre
They were lined up
Healing women
To be burned first
Ancient wisdom
Called witchcraft
Hel is waiting with outstretched arms
Stoicly they stand firm
Only an utterance of these words
A curse
Of ancient power
"May your great deeds be carved in water!"

The fires in the forest
And the screams thereby
Will be spread into your world
Eye for eye
And a tooth for a tooth
You will call me a heathen
Two ravens they fly
From the aesirs Great Hall
Hugin and Munin collects wisdom
Against warriors enemies
The ravens fly
The raven banner warriors follow
