Track Name: A New Age Rising
A new age rises
Darkness descends
Preparing the weapons
To begin the spiritual ritual

Behold the pagan blood moon
Its light guiding the path ahead
With pale skin to become at one
With the cold winters night before me

Through frozen forest ground we tread
To gather abundance for the coming times
Honoring the gifts of the universe
Magic of the starlit sky's
Track Name: Nordic Storm
Darkness falling from the sky
The clouds cloaking the twilight
Cold sets into the bone
the time is here for eternal dark

Wind blows across icy plains
Snow falls from above us now
Desolation settling In
As we prepare for the arctic storm

the wolves we hear on the wind

Traveling through the mountain passage
Looking for their nightly blood lust
They stalk the scent of the fallen

The sun no longer rising
The cold winter moon nearing
No survival of the weak here
For only the strong will prevail
Track Name: Blood Oath
Sworn allegiance from the start
The brotherhood of death and steel
An honor sworn by all who followed
A blood oath til the dying end

With swords and axes they all conquered
Brothers following pagan blood
Fighting for their tribes, warriors united
No fear held within them of death

Pride and honor in their hearts
Taking back what was lost
Rulers of the land and oceans
Warriors of the icy kingdom
Track Name: Summoning The Gods
The pagan moon approaches
A storm in the distance
The air crisp with the frost
Wind blowing through forests

Upon the high mountain peaks
We walk the path to wisdom
To approach the norns of our fate
To gain knowledge of our quest

With sacred rune stones we gather
Carved from the tree of life
We call upon the gods
To help our journey's flight

For the wind to guide our sails
For the ocean to guide our path
For the sun to guide our stone
For the mighty one to guide our swords

The raven stands watch
Over the vast mountains
A sign of a higher meaning
A sign for the hordes to ride

Acceptance to begin
From the ancients above
To conquer across the earth
This summoning of the gods
