Track Name: Eternal Winter
Eternal winter arise
Bitter cold prevails
Snowdrift covers the land
Frost engulfs the sun

Waters turning to ice
Earth freezing below
Death calls through the air
The time of three winters is here

Biting winds surrounding
Blistering rain falls
The first wolf appears
Sköll chasing the light

catching the burning star
Swallows the ball of fire
Sky's darken the sunlight
Night descends across the worlds

The light shines by stars
Its fate about to become
The second wolf appears
Hati chasing the night

Catching the shining moon
Blackness falls over the worlds
Sounds scream from the sky
The ground begins crumble
Track Name: Fenrir: The Destroyer
Earth shakes from below
Trees ripped from the soil
Mountains fall to the sea
Bonds break releasing fenrir

The giant wolf approaches
His jaw from earth to sky
Engulfing the horizon
Flames spewing forth from his eyes

To the side is a bitter serpent
Spitting poison from sky to sea
Beasts rise for the battle battle
Towards vigrid they prevail

Fenrir joining with the giants
In the attack on golden gods
Loki and serpents unite
Onwards to the death of all

The wolf approaches to kill odin
Swallowed whole an instant death
This fiery beast will seal his fate
Avenged by the warrior vidar
Track Name: The Serpent Ov Midgaard
Coiled beneath the oceans
Awaits the creature of midgaard
Dwelling in the waters of man
He awakes from his mighty slumber

The serpents rage unleashed
Makes his way to shores
Oceans surge over lands
Waves crush all around

The ship of death comes undone
Setting sail throughout the seas
Nagifar made of warriors nails
Carry the dead to the final fight

Onward towards the great fields
The serpent and thor locked in battle
Slaying the snake with his hand
Poisoned a victory short lived
Track Name: Sons Ov Muspell
Stationed at the frontier
The fire giants wait in time
For the final moment to descend
The sign to slaughter is now

The sky splits open above
The sons of muspell revealed
Four demons riding forward
Surtur leading the assault

A blade made of molten fire
Brighter than a thousand suns
The earth burns in his wake
The approach to asgaard ahead

Muspells sons ride the bi-frost
The bridge crumbling from underneath
Advancing to the plains of vigrid
The vast land for the final battle
Track Name: Preparing For War
Heimdallr stands silent
At the asgaard bridge
Blows the gjallarhorn
Echoes through the land

The gods awaken at the sound
Odin rides to the wells of wisdom
To gain council from the norns
This last gathering before the end

The tree yggdrassil shakes
Everything, everywhere fears
The prophecy is upon us
Decimation is in the air

The gods prepare now
Calls from valhalla
Warriors head to war
Odin guides there hand
Track Name: As The Worlds Burn (Surtrs Wrath)
The plains of vigrid run red
The fight for survival begins
The fierce battle raging through
Between the final gods

Freya slain by the flames
Surtur arise to engulf the lands
Flames, smoke, steam arise
The world crumbles all around

The sky blackens
With deathly smoke
The stars extinguished
By the flame
The fires burn
Land and sky
Bringing the world
Around to ash

The end of everything is here
Midgaard sinks into the sea
Destruction upon the nine worlds
Everything falls, embers remain
