Lyrics


1. SWEVEN

Havet held deg i si hand
Ein veg av lys og mørke
Månen fylgjer vann til strand
Viljen min fylgjer vindens gang

Odin's son
Halvdansson

Eg veit at på min veg at eg har ingenting å vere redd for
Kva ærend eg har i stormer stride
Eg er kongenes konge og havet held meg i si hand




2. KING OF KINGS

Hail the forces
The first king of Norway
Hail the forces the brave son
God's bloodline

Mere a boy
Summoned rebels called to armor
Ravage revenge
A revenge of lords divided

Summoned armor
A theatre of war and renegade's ruin
Harken the prince of fairest saw a nation proud
Behold the god's will

Hail the forces
The first king of Norway
King of kings
Hail the fairest of Norsemen
The dragon
Victorious
Hail the forces the brave son
God's bloodline
King of kings
Hail the proudest of Norsemen
Sole ruler
Victorious

Mere a man
Mighty son of twenty summers
And yet a stout and prudent son of wealth and might
His voice the god's will

Hail the forces
The first king of Norway
King of kings
Hail the fairest of Norsemen
The dragon
Victorious
Hail the forces the brave son
God's bloodline
King of kings
Hail the proudest of Norsemen
Sole ruler
Victorious

Northern lands
Reign invincible
Norseman
Fights with fire
Iron rain
All-time warrior
Born again
Tales desire

They called him Harald Lufa
The sole ruler of the north

King of kings
King of kings
Victorious
King of kings
Descendant of the gods
Victorious
Hail the forces
The first king of Norway
King of kings
Hail the fairest of Norsemen
The dragon
Victorious
Hail the forces the brave son
God's bloodline
King of kings
Hail the proudest of Norsemen
Sole ruler
Victorious




3. HALVDAN THE BLACK

King of darkness
Allfather Odin
Revelation
Valhalla calling
Halvdanr Svarte

King of darkness
Allfather Odin
Elevation
Valhalla calling
Halvdan the Black

Proud voices in the air
On horseback king and men
Icebound the landscape
Their road lay over the lake

Shadows waking or asleep
Shapes gather 'neath the ice
Halvdan's body perishing
Then screaming voices cry

Twenty-two winters tell of seasons rich
A king of pride

King of darkness
Allfather Odin
Revelation
Valhalla calling
Halvdan the Black

King of Vestfold
By death divided
Veneration
All men mourning
Halvdan the Black

Loud voice coming near
Their faces scared and tense
Ice-sheet is broken
They're afraid to cross the lake

Shadows waking or asleep
Shapes gather 'neath the ice
Halvdan's body still and white
Men's bodies floating lifeless eyes

Twenty-two winters tell of seasons rich
A king of pride

King of darkness
Allfather Odin
Revelation
Valhalla calling
Halvdan the Black

King of Vestfold
By death divided
Veneration
All men mourning
Halvdan the Black
(Halvdanr Svarte)

Forty winters seize the end

King of darkness
Allfather Odin
Revelation
Valhalla calling
Halvdan the Black

King of Vestfold
By death divided
Veneration
All men mourning
Halvdan the Black




4. THE WAKING EYE

Behold tomorrow
Dreams shadow
Sons follow the waking eye
Behold tomorrow
Seer's shadow
Brothers follow beyond the sky

Soothsayer
Prophecy
Waking eye
Sanctity

A glaring dream
A garden in her pure pristine
She held a thorn
Growing tall and strong

Into heaven raising high
A stem shining golden white
Still underneath
Bright bloody red the earth

The grace of premonition
Embrace my dawning fate

Behold tomorrow
Dreams shadow
Sons follow the waking eye
Behold tomorrow
Seer's shadow
Brothers follow beyond the sky
Waking eye

Soothsayer
Prophecy
Waking eye
Sanctity

A wanted dream
Revealed to him on sordid beds
A man of deeds
Golden ringlets on his head

Son of heaven reaching down
So lively so sound
One shall unfold
A vision of his son on this earth

The grace of premonition
Embrace my dawning fate

Behold tomorrow
Dreams shadow
Sons follow the waking eye
Behold tomorrow
Seer's shadow
Brothers follow beyond the sky
One day he will stand up tall
The waking eye
He shall gather one and all
Beyond the sky
Waking eye

Soothsayer
Prophecy
Waking eye
Sanctity

Hail the gods we stand up tall
Arise above the darkened call

With the chieftains side by side
Men of legends curse the storms

Kingdom glory
Dreams shadow
One life story
Waves to halo

Behold tomorrow
Dreams shadow
Sons follow the waking eye
Behold tomorrow
Seer's shadow
Brothers follow beyond the sky
One day he will stand up tall
The waking eye
He shall gather one and all
Beyond the sky
Waking eye

Waking Eye




5. FEAST OF THE YEAR

(Instrumental)




6. VENGANCE VENOM

Father and son
Weak was their bond
Dear to his mother
Guileless and strong

Feasting for Yule
Guests from afar
Come to the table
Feast of the year

Mysteriously
Vanishes food
The kings' blood creeping
Fill up my drinking horn
Fill up your drinking horns

Hey
Drink on brothers
Drink on sons
Vengeance venom
Punish plunder
Sing on Baldr
Sif and Thor
Vengeance venom
Strikes like thunder
Lightening and thunder

Alien thief
One of the Finns
Halvdan's men seized him
Punished to pain

But silent as grave
Harald the Brave
Freed him from iron
They ran away
Dwelling in chieftains home

Drink on brothers
Drink on sons
Vengeance venom
Punish plunder
Sing on Baldr
Sif and Thor
Vengeance venom
Strikes like thunder

Fill up ye drinking horns

Drink on brothers
Drink on sons
Vengeance venom
Punish plunder
Sing on Baldr
Sif and Thor
Vengeance venom
Lightening and thunder
Drink on brothers
Drink on sons
Vengeance venom
Strikes like thunder
Vengeance
Venom
Skal




7. SACRED VOW

Disparate warring tribes of the Viking nation
They waged warfare
They belonged there

No woman by his side
He had cast his eye on a maiden
On a princess

Shock head tangle hair
No maiden by his side
For he had cast his eye on a princess

Sent his men to acclaim
Sent her men to decline

Conquer this land
Sword in your hand
Anchor in sand
Storms you withstand

Will you, will you conquer this land?
With you, with you, me at your hand
In a while
Sacred vow

Dishonour wasn't meant by her keen rejection
To be his maiden
To be his woman

Shock head tangle hair
No maiden by his side
For he had cast his eye on a princess

Sent his men to acclaim
Sent her men to decline

Conquer this land
Sword in your hand
Anchor in sand
Storms you withstand

Will you, will you conquer this land?
With you, with you, me at your hand
In a while
Sacred vow

He made the solemn vow for her sake
Ten years of growth and conquest
Conquer this land
Sword in your hand
Anchor in sand
Storms you withstand

Will you, will you conquer this land?
With you, with you, me at you hand
Until you love me so as you land
You will
You shall be king
In a while
Sacred vow




8. EDGE OF STEEL

There is one course to take
There is one war to fight
Be victorious or die
Only one siege to gain
There's fire in our eyes
Let his kingdom rise

He holds the fate of our kingdom in his hands
Wide open gates, attack to foe, then raid their land

We are the warriors
We march through halls
Edge of steel
We are rebellions
We tear down walls
Edge of steel
We draw the bow
The javelins swing
We serve the king
The edge of steel

We abide, we serve the king
His reign of steel

He holds his sword up high
Unshakable his will
Warriors unite
We see black ravens fly
There's fire in the sky
Helm and axe in sight

He holds the fate of our kingdom in his hands
Wait, stem to stem attack the foe, they sink to sands

We are the warriors
We march through halls
Edge of steel
We are rebellions
We tear down walls
Edge of steel
We draw the bow
The javelins swing
We serve the king
The edge of steel

We abide, we serve the king
His reign of steel

Protected by Finn's invincible spell
Iron-shielded vessels sail

We are the warriors
We march through halls
Edge of steel
We are rebellions
We tear down walls
Edge of steel
We draw the bow
The javelins swing
We serve the king
The edge of steel




9. HARALDSKVÆÐI

Harken ye all
Lend me your ears
Words of a raven
Don't overhear
Harken ye opp all
Here lay the opp fallen
On the gravel
Shoulder to shoulder

Her vi står
Mann mot mann
Her vi står
Med sverd med spyd




10. BLAZING WATERS

Eager tongues they spread the word
Men uprising have you heard

The foeman came from out the east
Keen for the fray as for a feast

Lo the blazing waters
When axe and sword besiege the sky
Blazing waters
Uprising forces cry

Ravens crowing
We stand beneath the flaming tide
Lo the blazing waters
Uprising fleet defeated

Back up faces down in heaps
Foe has fallen, burning ships

The foeman flee to the island rocks
Savage berserks insanely mad

Lo the blazing waters
When axe and sword besiege the sky
Blazing waters
Uprising forces cry

Ravens crowing
We stand beneath the flaming tide
Lo the blazing waters
Uprising fleet defeated

Eirik forced to the ground
Sulke burned to the ground
Sute a fallen earl
Kjøtve a fleeing twirl

Foeman from the east arrays his warriors
Enemies form the south
Ad victoriam
Foeman from the north calls his warriors
Enemies from the west
Ad victoriam
Vengeance in the blood of the warrior
Calling

Enemy
In hell he weeps
Seabed
Heroes sleep

The foeman came from out the east
Keen for the fray a bloody bloody feast

Lo the blazing waters
When axe and sword besiege the sky
Blazing waters
Uprising forces cry

Ravens crowing
We stand beneath the flaming tide
Lo the blazing waters
Uprising forces cry
Beneath the flaming tide




11. SWORDS IN ROCK

The winter's howling like a wolf
He rules the hills
Across the snows of Dovrefjell
Hail on shields

Beneath the waves his voice is heard
He rules the sea
They tell the tales of yesteryears
Hail the king

Swords in Rock
Tell his tale
Sverd i fjell
Winter's wail

And when we hear the dragon roar
Fairhair is here
With evil eyes
The black of fjords
Himmel og hav

In Snorris books his voice is heard
He ruled the north
United by the Lufa king
Swords in Rock

Through the forest calls the owl
He rules the night
He watches over prey in flight
Sink or swim

Beneath the waves his voice is heard
He rules the sea
They tell the tales of yesteryears
Hail the king

Swords in Rock
Tell his tale
Sverd i fjell
Winter's wail

Swords in Rock

And when we hear the dragon roar
Fairhair is here
With steel in hands
To sound of horns
Hail thy sword

The winter's howling like a wolf
He rules the hills
Across the snows of Dovrefjell
Hail on shields

And when we hear the dragon roar
Fairhair is here
With evil eyes
The black of fjords
Himmel og hav

In Snorris books his voice is heard
He ruled the north
United by the Lufa king
Swords in Rock

Swords in Rock
Tell his tale
Sverd i fjell
Winter's wail

Swords in Rock
