Track Name: At Dawn We Ride
Across the icy seas
Dragon ships of fear
Through raging storms
And grim winds of ice
We sail as one

Under full moon mist
As the hordes gather

With sharpened blades
And strength of gods
At dawn we ride

Riding through thee unknown valley fog

Pillaged, A ravaged land, left in burning ashes
Track Name: Raiders Of Northland
Descending down
From a land of ice
Fearless warriors
Coming from the sea
Swift attack
The Dragons bought us far
Pillaged lands
Nothing left but ashes

The sagas of the north
Rulers of the sea

Setting sail
Through the cold waves
Winter shores
Return to the homeland
Darkened realm
This circle of night
We are legend
The raiders of northland
Track Name: Through The Mountain Mist
Through the shadows of the fog
In these mountains is my throne

I hear the spirits of the land
The full moon light shows my path

A time that's long passed
the landscapes bare the ruins

The fire burns within thee
Through the mountain mist
Track Name: Battlefields
Riding through unknown landscapes
Axe and shields of steel
On my enemy's homeland
I will fight with honor
If I fall in battle
A vic-tor-ious death ive earned
Valkyries circle the sky
The hall of gods awaits me

Besieging the mighty walls
Fire arrows light the sky
Hordes gather for thee attack
Our enemy's blood will spill
Track Name: Of Desolation
Through a world in despair
What was is long forgotten

My soul bleeds of desolation
A longing to return to times past

A coming storm will take hold
The dawn of a new age set us free
Track Name: The Fimbul Winter
Enter a new age
For the onset of winter is here
The sun is no longer
For the world is now frozen
warriors of midgard
Stand guard at the gates of ragnarok

A darkened cold succeeds
Savage joy filled hearts
Nothing but silent despair

Walking through the blinding storms
Fierce winds sweep the sky's
The icy stars dimmed by snow
Sheets of ice freeze over seas
At last there came a winter
Neither man nor gods foreseen
Light grew pale and faint
Days grew short and dark

Cold winds blew fiercely
Hearts heavy with waiting
The sun was never to rise again
For this was the fimbul winter
