Kevin Griffin An incredible debut by a great new band. Not only do they incorporate folk styles from many different regions very well (Scandinavia, Spain, Ireland), but the guys in the band are all awesome, friendly dudes. Favorite track: Jörmungandr.

Track Name: Endless, Restless, Relentless
[Instrumental]
Track Name: Svolder's Battle
1. Would you like to hear my song?
Would you believe my words?
About king Olaf Tryggvason,
the subject of this song.

Refrain: Dance resounds in the halls,
Dance! – Form a ring.
Brave Norwegians ride
to Hildur’s thing.

2. The king had a vessel built
on the level sand.
The Serpent was the largest ship
built on Norwegian lands.

Refrain

40. Eric left the sandy beach,
ran down to the pier:
“Be prepared to leave the beach
the Serpent is now here!”

Refrain

41. They all saw the Serpent come
sailing proud and bold.
The rigging was a sail of silk,
the bows were made of gold.

Refrain

45. Wolf the Red stood in the bows,
he never got it wrong:
“Don’t shoot the ship to much ahead,
the Serpent is too long”.

Refrain

49. King Olaf stood up in the stern
staring back and forth:
“Who owns all these mighty ships
steering at our port?”

Refrain

54. Herning looks out on the ships,
answers to his call:
“They belong to Eric the Earl,
the bravest of them all”

Refrain

59. The king of Denmark stormed ahead
convinced that he could win.
Norwegians, they fought so hard!
the Danish lines were thin.

Refrain

60. Smoke raised from fighting men,
blood poured in the sea.
It turned out that all the Danes
had to back and flee.

Refrain

76. Eric jumped onboard the Serpent
with his sword in hand.
Herning rushed down from the stern,
med him with his brand.

Refrain

83. The king shouted from the stern,
through the noise and rattle:
“Jump into the sea, my men!
We have lost this battle”

Refrain

84. Then the king and all his men,
-although brave and bold-
jumped into the salty sea,
they did as they were told.

Refrain
Track Name: Ginnungagap
Dark is everything
Cold and fire surrounding it all
Flames melting ice
A battle that has to finish at all

Frozen emptiness
Ginnungagap is just a deep, black hole
Burning darkness
Life takes form when the hot meets the cold

There is Niflheim
Valleys and mountains are made of no stone
There is Muspelheim
Rivers of magma destroying the whole

Frost giving him life
He was born from
Heat, filling the air
Now he has taken form

Ymer the giant
First living creature, born from the snow
Horrible fate
Betrayed and beheaded by (the) children of Bor

That's the beginning
Fighting for life, absence of love
Violence and nonsense
From dark to light, from nothing to all

That's our story
Ginnungagap hole is our hole
Snow and fire
Creators of our own

Of our own

That's our story
Ginnungagap hole is our hole
Snow and fire
Creators of our own
Track Name: Jörmungandr
The night weaves the land
A thunder tears the loom of life
A ripper scream lights up the dark
The serpent has born, born from wrath.

Surrounding Midgard, the world of man
the snake bites its tail with venomous fangs
awaiting the moment when Gjallarhorn sounds
Jörmungandr prepares for Ragnarök time

Thrown to the sea by Oden (Jörmungandr)
It will poison the skies
Awaiting the day (Jörmungandr)
To take it’s revenge
(Jörmungandr)

Wake up, oh mighty snake!
A dark age of death has just arrived.
Thor awaits 'cause this fight
will make both reach your fate.

Poisonous skies, fire and hail.
Blood poured in the sea as Thor,
Thunder God, kills the snake
and dies after just nine steps.
Track Name: Feisty Blood
[Instrumental]
Track Name: Homeland
Here I stand again
I am back to my yearned land
Memories embrace me, I realize
I should never have left

Morning comes at last
All these years have gone by so fast
And it scares me
But I’ll stand here ‘til the day I die

Sun is rising now
it’s given birth by the mountains
wind blows cold as ice
but I can feel the fire in my heart

I was eager to run,
along these vast northern lands,
but I’m not longer young,
it’s not long before my time has come

From time to time, from land to land
it was told (that) this place was paradise
now (that) I stand at this ground so dank
I’m so proud to call this “my homeland”

There was a time when I was strong and brave
but my fate now takes me to the grave

From time to time, from land to land
it was told (that) this place was paradise
now (that) I stand at this ground so dank
I’m so proud to call this “my homeland”
Track Name: Nordwaldtaler
Once dead his father
He closed family business
Cooking tacos and burritos
Was not his way of life

He took from an old chest
His six-shoot deathbringer
And wearing his poncho
had a fate to find.

He joined a band of raiders
Which were going to the north.
Through forests, across valleys
Plundering and forth.

Cruel and showing no mercy,
soon He became known.
The man who came from southlands
was striking on and on.

One day while He was sleeping
a poor fool tried to rob him
And before he'd even cried
His hands lay on the floor

So in retaliation
He went one by one
to the members of the band
cutting off their hands

CHORUS

He’s a stranger where he goes.
He's been wandering alone.
Now his time's about to come.
Death and glory shall be known.

Finally He came up
to a little town in forest.
And in secret with the Dark Gods
He made his twisted deal.

So falling into madness,
thirsty of death and pain,
He slayed all the peasants
and ate their bloody entrails.

No one will ever know
What happened that day.
The deal that he had done
He carried with him to his grave.
Track Name: Northern Winds
Fimbulwinter yet to come
A dark age has just begun
Northern winds starting to blow
there's no chance to avoid the cold

Pine trees bend as golden straw
Mountains freeze with falling snow
Hail and ice will follow soon
dictated march by pale blue moon

You feel your heart becoming older
Look outside, it's getting colder
Stay at home near by your fire
Trying to impede the gods' desire

But there's no escape, no looking back
When Loki's son growls in the dark
Mighty winter has arrived
Northern winds of darkened, freezing hands...

Our land is scorched by the impressive cold
Rotting carcass of the dreams we once rode
Remains we left from defeated foes
Are now the future of our condemned souls.

An age of axes, an age of swords,
of shields destroyed and fratricidal wars.
An era of winds, an era of wolves,
It's the prelude for the Ragnarök
Track Name: Finnish Polkka
[Instrumental]
Track Name: Guardians
Obscure times, continual war,
Destroyed towns, greed and pride.
Gods destined for oblivion,
Asking for help to the guardians of time.

Superior beings looking down on mankind,
Counting your days, judging your life.
No way to escape to the look of their eyes,
No sword can stop the edge of their scythes.

Superior beings looking down on mankind,
Witnesses of a sinister past.
When mortals, lost, looked for a guide,
They had to take the guardians on trust.

Guardians of time!

Faithful times, lands of hope,
Guardians' promise, a better world.
Gods destined for oblivion,
Asking for help to the guardians of time.

The guardians of time!
Judging your life!

Superior beings looking down on mankind,
Counting your days, judging your life.
No way to escape to the look of their eyes,
No sword can stop the edge of their scythes.

Superior beings looking down on mankind,
Witnesses of a sinister past.
When mortals, lost, looked for a guide,
They had to take the guardians on trust.

Superior beings looking down on mankind,
No way to escape to the look of their eyes.
Superior beings looking down on mankind,
When mortals, lost, looked for a guide.

Crossing the night,
As a forest guided by thunderlight.
Lightning can't wait,
So ride through the stars.

And the rivers of time,
Dyed by blood
Of the ones who once tried
To beat us in war.
We're guardians of Time

Crossing the night,
As a forest guided by thunderlight.
Lightning can't wait,
So ride through the stars.

And the rivers of time,
Dyed by blood
Of the ones who once tried
To beat us in war.
We're guardians of time!

Crossing the night,
As a forest guided by thunderlight
Lightning can't wait,
So ride... we're Guardians of Time!
Track Name: Erik the Deaf
There's an old man, here in town
Maybe you have seen him
But don't you try, even too loud
He'll not answer the yelling

He shows up he's bored with a huge snore
He's paying no attention!
Who could be this old man
that has just fallen asleep?

Grandma says that he was brave
strong, kind and sexy.
Won a fight with only bare hands,
enemies were at least sixty!

Calm the storm, tame the seas,
take the dog for a walk.
He could do anything.
Anything he wanted

Uncork a bottle in his name, hooray! Hooray!
Uncork a bottle in his name, hooray! Hooray!
Uncork a bottle in his name, rum, whiskey, it's all the same!
'Cause tonight we're drinking and drinking and drinking and drinking and drinking again!

Remember what we're drinking for, hooray! Hooray!
Remember what we're drinking for, hooray! Hooray!
Remember what we're drinking for, so drink and drink and drink some more!
Til we lie on the ground, drunken and proud of what we have become.

He discovered Vinland,
well, he and some of his friends.
A place with great resources:
Hops, malt and also wine grapes.

They brewed a lot, A LOT of drinks
-Alcoholic type-
And when they finished drank them
To see what tasted like.

So next day when he got up
He had hangover so great
that burped as loud and fiercely
That became completely deaf

Now that you know the story
and why he cannot hear,
You must hail Erik the Deaf
The viking with no ears!
