For aeons linking the nine worlds the roots gave guidance to the lost souls under the witness of the eternal guard protecting the tree until the end, from the start A legion of branches surrounding the skies cage for all mortals, playground for gods the waters of life flow frozen to a spring colliding against fire from the flying wyrm Within the souls of valiant men there is a forge of prideful strength when the sky turns red upon the battlefield our cries break through beyond the steel With fear scattered in the hearts of the foe the barriers will fall like the autumn leaves the gods shall behold us with heavenly wonder as the bones of our enemies are torn asunder (CHORUS) And beneath the tree of life we fight beyond the sky we put our sight we'll cut the flesh and share the mead all for the heart of Yggdrasil (CHORUS x2)

Crossing the skies, riding the clouds unstoppable, mighty, with skin pitch black when the storm is nigh and the winds calm down a glare shows up lighting the dark Under the falling rain, thirsty for blood, bringing the pain, the wyverns are raging, the fire is free, build your shelters and make your prays "Faster than light, thy faith crumbles down, the doom of the beasts thou shalt not avoid, no one could ever stop the relentless, before the deathbringers thou shalt stand hopeless" There was a story once told where a warrior faced a wyvern fury in its eyes he had seen but he had the will of a leader The beast was not blind, and saw through his soul that he was the last one of a pure-blood descent wisely he made the choice not to fight, but to join him to follow the path of the strength Fly higher and higher, let every mortal witness our glory rage, thunders and fire will be our symbol, the seal of our story The wyverns didn't forgive the traitor so they put end to his life, the warrior yelled, and he swore revenge ...to the end! Raging wyverns, you shall die by my hands raging wyverns, your greed you shall regret raging wyverns, you shall die by my hands raging wyverns, may your rot mean your end Raging wyverns, you shall die by my hands raging wyverns, your greed you shall regret raging wyverns, you shall die by my hands raging wyverns, your greed you shall regret

Skies of a fatal winter night, the winds are conjuring awakening spells, seas of storm, a tough, dark time, and waves are whispering words of decay Corpses are leaving their pulverulent graves ancient huntsmen are rising again rotten souls in the need of flesh the fallen, forgotten, are claiming revenge (CHORUS) Hear their words, proclaiming the end a newborn plague that will raze the land feel the grief and embrace the dread, the incoming war will see us dead No time for mercy, they gave a choice and we took the wrong path end of the journey, there is no option for us but to die now it’s their moment, it is the time for the dead and the wicked to inherit our future and past No way to fight them, our gods have betrayed us and given their backs no need of praying, because my sword is the only thing I can trust mankind is doomed, after a painful life i'll be back as a servant of this macabre dance So dance, dance, sing with lust rejoice of the corpses surrounding us dance, dance, the fallen arise rejoice of the martyrs who mourn and cry dance, dance, the tune of the dead its melody comes from fiery hell dance, dance, join the wild hunt fed by the souls of the children of man (CHORUS x2)

Please let us give you a welcome you are at the Beerbath Bar we drench your throat and fill your belly while the lasses get you warm Inside the feast is getting heated get close and choose your spot ales are flowing, meat is roasting fellows, this night will be everlasting A giant barrel full of beer lies upon our heads hours go by and golden jars feed our entrails the gates knock down and foes are storming in they have signed a contract for our butchery Drunkenness is our weapon for this siege our brothers have gone berserk someone cut the ropes of the barrel in the ceiling and all the hall is swimming in beer We throw the tables off then grab our swords flesh comes apart like sand we're witnesses of bloody glory and will rejoice on gods' delight (CHORUS) Now they call it the Beer Bloodbath that night was called the Beer Bloodbath now they call it the Beer Bloodbath that night was called the Beer Bloodbath

Look outside, the light awakes spring arrived and winter's gone bring your longboards to the waves the sea claims for blood with a mighty roar For the time has come to raise our swords and fight like brothers in the shield wall we'll strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger Mighty Njord, guide our boards give us great waves so we'll surf like pros the sun arrived and the ice is gone surfer vikings over christian shores Lindisfarne, the city of York, Dublin, Wexford and the longport of Cork nobody escapes from our deadly swords surfer vikings, babe, sons of Thor We fight for glory, we fight for riches we claim your land and we claim your beaches we're travelling east to the Pacific Ocean we'll ride the waves at sunny California And when summer's gone and fun is over we'll surf back home and praise the mighty Oden and Christians, frightened, will say: “Oh Dear, the surfer vikings will be here next year!” (CHORUS) And we are proud, we are delighted of who we are and how we're acting you can blame us, send us to hell but we enjoy to be surfer vikings

In times of primeval chaos the first of the giants burst forth a junction of ice and fire (and fire) unveiling an atrocious eyesore When doze fell over the land of giants its limbs laid coalesced in a lace forged in rime, heads counting six (counting six) Hrimthursar linked the chains of a race (CHORUS) The nine worlds were portrayed with his flesh and life dawned twinkling from her seed the summer, the winter, the sun and the moon the incipience of all life paid with greed Rejected from the hearth of Æsir wind and water rose from their might Submission as a role for existence while enmity ingrains strained sustaining the clockwork of nature the Jötnar forsaken remain (CHORUS)

Freezing winds are summoning raging gales as a traveler timelessly wanders lost in the storm he meets the end an ancient curse for every mortal A desperate cry resounds on the hills as the trees sway furiously blindly seeking meets her gaze impaling him right through the heart (CHORUS) And there she stands, dressed in ice and shadows, the lady of frost is waiting to embrace the eternal night... of cold! At the fall of dusk no light remains and all hope is forgotten no creed nor faith shall now reject the only and dismal fate Her aura feeds the frozen souls and withers life away within the eternal flames of hell shall lie relieving death (CHORUS x2)

Blizzards and ice, the power of north silent and lethal, a death-payed toll we strive for a shelter, in the eye of the storm but hardly we find the strength to go on Weeks have gone by since we last saw the sun our struggle is painful, with blood in our hands but fire lies deep into our hearts nothing can't stop the wish of a god Dive into the dreadful night shattered by the piercing ice will we find our way through the snow? May the Norns guide us home The howls of the wild are calling for bait while we are running a race against death night-wandering shadows painted by the bright moon can only be a path to follow by fools The ravens and wolves bring shivers to the flesh painting the loneliness deep into ourselves recalling the deepest pain a man can feel but the harder the journey, the stronger the will (CHORUS x2) Light from the stars, please lead on our way as we carry the torch of the undying flame cleanse our souls, let the winter calm down grant us your bless so we can see a new day A long way to go remains to be seen and after the storm shall come the relief the light of the flame uncovers the dark while the ill and the weak have stopped to breathe Until the end... we'll keep it safe until the end... the undying flame Life is brief and blood sheds with ease and the wicked will poison the veins of a man in the end there's no hope for the light to remain as the roots of the evil win the war every time But while we stay alive and well we'll keep on defending our future and past our swords will prevail against the misdeed our sons will stand proud in the ages to come Until the end... we'll keep it safe until the end…the undying flame

Bazen behin leku bat, guztien artean erregina eguzkia zen errege, gogorapenen ipuina galduta nagoenean, munduaren iparorratz bakea behar dudanean, nire pausoen norakoa (CHORUS) Suaren lurraldea da nik maite dudana ez baitago parekorik mundu zabalean Sua da nire odol, beroa nire indarra nire lurraldearen ibarretan aurkituko dut bizia beti dira ohoretsu gizonen bihotz taupadak seme eta alaba guztien benetako amalurra (CHORUS x2) (FINAL CHORUS) Suaren lurraldea da nik maite dudana ez baitago parekorik mundu zabalean suaren lurraldea da nire hilerria heriotzaren ostean, jaiotze berria THE LAND OF FIRE (English translation) Once there was a land, the queen amongst them all and sun was the king in a tale of memories everytime I wander lost, it becomes my compass everytime I search for peace, my footsteps will lead there (CHORUS) The land of fire is the land I love as there is no equal throughout the wide world Fire is my blood, heat is my strength in the valleys of my land I shall find life the heartbeats of its men are always honorable in the one and only homeland for all of its offspring (CHORUS x2) (FINAL CHORUS) The land of fire is the land I love as there is no equal throughout the wide world the land of fire is my graveyard an everlasting new birth after death

THE DAWNING Deep into the darkest streams of rage a child was raised under the sign of hate no one heard the whispers of his faith his soul was slaughtered, he had to face the death But proud he stood on what he was, as he sat down next to a myth, heir of the light, bringer of darkness, he followed a path leading to madness One among a million he was born one drop in an ocean full of groans great, and nonetheless, so miserable over and over again to be torn down One among a million I was born the last standing man I will become the awaited renewal for my soul the blackest finale for them all THE CROSSROADS One more drop in the ocean makes no difference at all I will decide my fate, that's the only way everyone shall know my name THE BLEAKNESS My shell was always my guidance and protection thus, I could not look outside, at this rotten realm harsh winds of filth feed the lungs of men and no one's safe at their own home If you can see the end coming, then you do not look beyond enough at last the night is here and all the whispers become sincere I will ignite the flame on the ones that lost their light betrayed origins are the depiction in the canvas of human life earthly is the will of man against the iniquity in their minds the whole divide of oneness will bring salvation at your last gasp The realm of the mortals is burning, into the fire all the bodies have begun to perish in the name of death I cast the spell so you may suffer as I bid you farewell THE CLEANSING Wake up from your sleep all the torments have been set free choose the path that you believe in because the future can't be foreseen Follow me to embrace the gift of life inside the grief you'll find a place for calm let the rain cleanse all of your sorrow to face the day while past is gone
