Track Name: 20,000 Spears
Chanted hymns of war
Land on northern shore
Christian men from Rome
Far away from home

Come to convert one
To their hallowed son
Those that would deny
They would surely die

At the edge of sword
Or the edge of spear
Worship their one lord
Claim their god you fear

Convert or die they say
Forcing all to pray
They would not survive
If they ran for their lives

20,000 spears
Marching endlessly
Men who know no fear
Death and hell they bring!

Meeting them head on
We the northern sons
Cannot idle by
These Christians must die

Brought by Odin's might
Many men to fight
Atgeir pierce the light
Shields on each mans right

The legion turns its head
Those that don't are dead
Axes through the air
Skulls split flesh made bare

Marching towards us
Feeding a Vikings lust
Line by line they plod
In the name of their god

20,000 spears
Marching endlessly
Men who know no fear
Death and hell they bring!

They charge
We stand
Shield wall made of thousands

Holding
Striking
Norsemen feed them steel death

Bodies
Bloodied
Few who knew of Midgard

Many
Roman
Fall in the name of Christ

Mercy
For none
Not a soul turns to run

Hacking
Stabbing
Slash, Smash and Impaling

Splintered
Shattered
Shields, smashed and bones alike

Too many
Too strong
Their ranks begin to unfold
Track Name: Descendants of Odin
Many years ago, before the dawn of time
Our fathers ruled the land; our gods gave first born sign.
Never to back down, never to show fear
A mighty warrior stands tall, when death is even near.

Ten thousand strong, marched side by side
Fallen ashes, blackened out the skies.
The sound of the roaring winds, our battle for the throne
Bloody, battered and bruised, our weakness never shown.

Descendants of Odin
We are the next, we are the kin
Its more than blood that flows within

We vanquish all and any, who oppose our land
fighting close to home, killing Christian man.
We break out of the mist; a storm waits up ahead
Outnumbered by a ton, now we walk with death

Twenty thousand strong, fought side by side
Grey clouded skies fell to the ground.
The sound of thunder hoards, the battle for our home
Broken, Beaten bones, our weakness never shown.

Descendants of Odin
We are the next, we are the kin
Its more than blood that flows within

Trenched, in the fury of divine waves
Our fathers speak to us in silence

And they all say, The battles are far from done
What can you make of this life, from beyond the grave?
What can you make of this death; all you leave is a, Nameeeeeeee!

Bodies fill the field, blood flows down the stream
The stench of death in air, home was just a dream.
The gods gave us this life, we’re destined to succeed
No men can hold us down! Odin’s strengths all we need.

Forty thousand strong, died side by side
Fires fill the land as crows black out the sky
The sound of silent moors, Valhalla’s all we known
Descendants of our gods, Our weakness never shown.
Track Name: War Upon the Celestial Kingdoms
Let free our wrathful hate conquering all that stands in our path.
The weak shall be hurled in eternal fire thy angels shall perish forever

There's no escaping our northern might
Our lord has ordered your demise
The light bringers flee to their false god

Let it be known

We shall bring hellish storm
War upon celestial
Set the vault of heaven, up in flames,
War on this celestial...

Your divine coronation
Corrupt ideals of salvation
Encroaching upon our nation
Hel awaits you in damnation

We shall not falter
Our lord of war
commands as we descend from his altar
Our lord of war demands

Let it known

We shall bring hellish storm
War upon celestial
Set the vault of heaven, up in flames
War on this celestial kingdom

Thou shall ride, thou shall fight, and fight this war with pride!
We shall slaughter them all
We are your last legion!

They shall fall
They shall burn
Perish!
Into darkness
We are the Last Legion!
Track Name: Let Battle Come
Children of the fallen sun
Set your sails the time has come
To ride upon the dragon high
To soar the seas and rising tide

To leave these lands in search for wealth
With sword and axe and shield and mail
Our mighty swords all fall upon
Let battle come let there be war!

Take us take us to the sky!
This night is full of terror
And terror is what we shall be
Upon a mighty dragon we shall fly!
And let all be full of terror
Let all who face us fight and fall or flee!

Upon the mist we sail along
The war horn sounds the time has come
These shores we cross to sate our thirst
Of blood and death and boundless wealth

We shall never forget the
Oaths that we have sworn upon
Our mighty spears all fall upon
Let battle come let there be war!

Take us take us to the sky!
This night is full of terror
And terror is what we shall be
Upon a mighty dragon we shall fly!
And let all be full of terror
Let all who face us fight and fall or flee!

Let the winds now guide us
In this night of terror
As we descend upon you
Our warcrys fill the night

Take us take us to the sky!
This night is full of terror
And terror is what we shall be
Upon a mighty dragon we shall fly!
And let all be full of terror
Let all who face us fight and fall or flee!

In this night of terror
Our warcries fill the night
Track Name: Battle of the Jotnar
The clouds they part
The sky it shall crack
Such fear the Jotun showed
Of the Hammer of Thor!

They march to war from Jotunheim
With axe and clubs forged from the ice
A cold they bring to Asgard

With voices loud they storm the gates
The walls they smash soon all shall fall
The valiant slain rush to defend

No rush in living forever!

Bones are broken!
Bodies are splattered!
Thunder it speaks!
Come forth Skull cracker!
For Odin, Tyr and, Fallen Bauldur
For all the AESIR!
We march to war!
Heimdal blow Gjallarhorn!
20,000 spears stand ready!

The clouds they part
The sky it shall crack
Such fear the Jotun showed
Of the Hammer of Thor!

A sound of thunder leads the charge
The valiant spears pierce their frozen flesh
The Jotnar begin to unfold

Just then their true might begins to shine
A force as large as the eye can see
Led by the Laufeyson

All is heard is his laugher!

Bones are broken!
Bodies are splattered!
Thunder it speaks!
Come forth Skull cracker!
For Odin, Tyr and, Fallen Bauldur
For all the AESIR!
We march to war!
Heimdal blow Gjallarhorn!
20,000 spears stand ready!

The clouds they part
The sky it shall crack
Such fear the Jotun showed
Of the Hammer of Thor!

On Naglfar she Sails
Sister of the serpent and wolf
Daughter of the Laufeyson
She brings the end off all

They march to war from Jotunheim
With voices loud they storm the gates

The sound of thunder
The valiant spears pierce
She brings the end off all
Twilight of the gods
Track Name: Betrayer
Visions, visions show the future
I've armored myself for your assault
Despicable notions occur in your mind
Displaying the nature shown in your eyes

Plotting and planning you weave all your schemes
As a coward honor less and lost in your fear
So blunt is your knife so dull is your spear
The time you have waited for this time has grown near

Betrayer!
Have you fallen away from yourself
I shall spell your Doom
Fallen farther and farther away
Forsaken your dreams and lost in your schemes
I shall seal your Fate

Numbing, numbing your weapons are useless
Forever you cower in shadows of dust
Betraying the ones who once called you brother
In shadows you hide like a coward you run

Broken, broken you stand alone
Weighted by guilt and a hollow soul
Broken, broken you shall be broken
This winter of wolves shall relish the slaughter

Betrayer!
Have you fallen away from yourself
I shall spell your Doom
Fallen farther and farther away
Forsaken your dreams and lost in your schemes
I shall seal your Fate

Forever the wolves will hunt you
And drag you into the frozen abyss

Forever the wolves will hunt you
And devour your liver your lungs and your heart

Forever the wolves will hunt you
A sacrifice to the alfather above

Forever the wolves will hunt you
Fallen and fallen away and away the...

Betrayer!
Have you fallen away from yourself
I shall spell your Doom
Fallen farther and farther away
Forsaken your dreams and lost in your schemes
I shall seal your Fate
Track Name: Valkyria
A Battle Fought
Who cares for what
To swing my axe is all I crave
A berserks rage
A Vikings lust
Sends many to an early grave

A sudden pierce at my side
The blood it flows an end to life
Yet on I fight to the bitter end
A light I see far beyond

Valkyria!
I await your call
I wish to fight once more
Valkyria!
To the golden hall
Where the brave may live forever!

The stories of so long ago
The skalds still tell it well
Of axes swung and swords that peirced
Through many a cowards shield

They told of her light so high above
For Odin the alfather
On past Bifrost, on past Heimdal
To claim a seat in Valhalla!

Valkyria!
I await your call
I wish to fight once more
Valkyria!
To the golden hall
Where the brave may live forever!

Lo, there do I see my Father
Lo, there do I see my Mother
And my Sisters and my Brothers
Lo, there do I see the line
Of my people back to the beginning
They do bid me to take my place among them
In the Halls of Valhalla
Where the Brave may live forever
Track Name: Edge of the World
Sound the horns
Our king commands
We sail towards war and glory
Man the oars
Hail the winds
Skuldelevs unleashed on the world

Thor and Odin praised
Aegir was forgot
For this a storm was summoned
They have incurred his wrath

Ships were flung
Souls paid tribute
To the mighty god of the seas
Frozen waves
Steal their breath
As they cling to what remains
Surviving night
Surviving day
The king and twelve on the bow
Still armed,
Still ready
Greeted by the shadow of eagle wings

Hræsvelgr the beast at the edge of the world

Piercing eye gaze
Talons of razor
Wingspan of a hundred men
His hands steady
Soldiers at his side
The king does not cower nor fear

The beast approaches
It savors the meal to come
The beast must be filled
The king to feed him steel

Whole men
consumed
Spears and shield burst
Sternums
smashed in
By crushing forces
Heads left
bodies
Arms followed suit
Axe and
sword swung
His majesty leaves his mark

Hræsvelgr the beast at the edge of the world

Claws pierced flesh
The flesh of the king
He strikes his axe
Into his enemy

The beasts devours his leg
He screams in pain
He plants his arm
spiked and mailed into its eye

The king drifts on the bow
to our northern shores
With him proof
of the beast at the edge of the world
Track Name: A King's Sorrow
Boreal seas meet solemn land
On the edge lies our king
Frozen in time and battle his eyes
speak of the pain endured

Not a word is spoken
Nor do his kin weep
For glory in battle achieved
is victory for his people

Open the gates
For the king of all kings
Champion of men
Only under Alfader himself

Enswathed is his arm
By the eye of the beast
Proof of his worth
Of his seat in Valhalla

Many a voyage brought
spoils of battle home
His final journey bears
a trophy to behold

Under his rule
His empire has prospered
Silver and riches divine
Bathed in ambrosia

Open the gates
For the king of all kings
Champion of men
Only under Alfader himself

Enswathed is his arm
By the eye of the beast
Proof of his worth
Of his seat in Valhalla

Constructing his ship
Made from the bow
They fill it with treasure
From the around the land

They set him adrift one last time
Vigilant as the flames caress his face
Once again brought to the gates of Midgard
Greeted by the ravens and eagle cries

Glory in battle
Glory for all
Glory in battle
Claim your seat in the hall!
