Track Name: Land of Eregion
There is a hidden place
Born from the will of gods
Accessible through narrow roads
We call this place “our home”

There is a gentle voice
That whispers sweet words
“ Welcome to a spellbound world
Among fairies, demons and swords”

A land of mystery
Look into the ardent forge
Will you find the riddle of the rings?

Far, far beyond the sun
Where daylight dies and shadow grows
An enchanting land
Lies keeping secrets of time
Through the veil of dreams
May people find here glory and wealth
As our gods intended for
Land of Eregion

Look at the signs in the sky
And listen to your heart
The red berries of elder trees
Will mark the incoming time

You’ll hear the singing stones
That mourn the golden age
“We were part of heaven once
But now we’ve fallen from grace”

A land of sorcery
Look into the ardent forge
Will you find the riddle of the rings?


Far, far beyond the sun
Where daylight dies and shadow grows
An enchanting land
Lies keeping secrets of time
Through the veil of dreams
May people find here glory and wealth
As our gods intended for
Land of Eregion

Far, far beyond all death
Where only spirits fly unbound
A beloved land
Lies free from burdens of time
Through the eons’ light
The utter darkness never comes
As our gods intended for
Land of Eregion
Track Name: Lord of War
I - The March

Moon guide my steps
in this land of bewitchery
surrounded by shadows I walk
Blood on my hands
It’s a sign of impending doom
Black ravens fly over me

Under a black sky we’re marching ‘till dawn
Ready to fight without fear
(From) glory will rise up a thousand songs
If we set on fire and kill

Tonight we will burn down
For the King For the Lord of War
Tonight we will burn

Second to none every man shows a proudly gait
Born to be slain or to win
Sword’s by my side
Dreaming o’ many deadly strikes
She waits for some blood to spill

Under a black sky we’re marching ‘till dawn
Ready to die on the field
(From) glory will rise up a thousand songs
Prayin’ for the Gods to heal

Tonight we will burn down
For the King For the Lord of War
Tonight we will burn
Tonight we will burn down
For the King For the Lord of War
Tonight we will burn
BURN !!


II - The Prayer

First comes the light of a rising sun
to give us glory for battle’s time
Then there are weapons, the courage and faith
to give us the strength to face death

Lord of war I hear thy callin’
I hold my sword while horn is blowin’
Screaming to the sky the ancient hymns
I care for nothing but the honor of my king

III - The Battle

At last the expected war has come
Not all of us will return back home
Those who stay alive will sing eternal songs
In memory of those who won’t fight anymore

Here we stand in the battlefield
Beating to bring every knight to the ground
Feeling the power of gods inside
We fight and die for our king
Track Name: Vinland
A last look at the shore
We’re leaving the cold north
Sons of the sea
Born to be the pioneers

Blue skies turn into storm
We sail into the unknown
Route to the West
With no fear and no regrets

Handful of men ready to sacrifice their lives
Explorers of new worlds beyond the sea

Through the wind
On the sea
Searching through the endless ocean
No one’s ever gone...
So far away

For a land
All of us
Sailing to unsung horizons
Guided by stars
We’ll follow our destiny

New place to colonize
A mild and fertile land
The braves’ reward
The journey has just begun

Handful of men ready to sacrifice their lives
Explorers of new worlds beyond the sea

Through the wind
On the sea
Searching through the endless ocean
No one ever has gone...
So far away

For a land
All of us
Sailing to unsung horizons
Guided by stars
We’ll follow our destiny
Track Name: War of Damned
Broken chains
Slaves nevermore
Now is the time to lift the swords

We bear the mark
Sign of brotherhood
Anger and pain flowing in our veins

Face the legions of Rome
Fight for a greater ideal
Win or die as free men
To live our life

We will rise like the sun in the sky
Shake shall the pillars of the Empire
War of Damned, the army of slaves
Our blood will not be shed in vain

Battlefield
Destiny calls
Thousands of men to form the ranks

Victory or death
United until the end
Against the long Republic’s hands

Face the legions of Rome
Fight for a greater ideal
Win or die as free men
To live our life

We will rise like the sun in the sky
Shake shall the pillars of the Empire
War of Damned, the army of slaves
Our blood will not be shed in vain

Ut bellum incipiat
Morti parati sumus
Ut bellum incipiat
Morti parati sumus

We will rise like the sun in the sky
Shake shall the pillars of the Empire
War of Damned, the army of slaves
Our blood will not be shed

Now is the time
We shall not die in vain
Track Name: Northern Covenant
When the rosy-fingered dawn rises high
Faces carved by cold look at the sky
It’s time to ask out loud with proud eyes
(The) favor of gods before a last goodbye
And no one knows the fate of Norns

Then together aboard the longship, side by side
Brothers bound by an oath subscribed in blood
Until time ends we’ll fight hard
(And the) glory belongs to Odin, as we know,
But victory, it depends on our sword

Strong and bold like ancient kings
Who lead from above, northern covenant
We plunder well all the lands and seas
Comes from afar, (the) northern covenant

Mourn the people betrayed by the sea all their dead
In battle we expect a bloodbath worthy of being sung
It leaves no chances the Jomsborg’s rule:
To die as cowards or to die just as gods
Holding the cold steel into their own hands

Strong and bold like ancient kings
Who lead from above, northern covenant
We plunder well all the land and the seas
Comes from afar, (the) northern covenant
Track Name: Cast Down the Tyrant
“Rise to fall
(It’s) the meaning of all”
The man knew that riding into the storm
Grows the oak from a little brown acorn
But it falls down too when its time has come

So this man with a sword in his hands
He goes to the tyrant’s lair
A kingdom of blood and a kingdom of gloom
Is about to encounter its doom

From evil men just evil deeds
Fruits of a poisoned tree
The hero goes straight to weed evil’s root
And the head of the tyrant is lost

Rolls the tyrant’s head, my friend
Rolls and springs away from his golden throne
Now the tyrant knows
Rise to fall

Let people feast, the hero is back
He carries a gift into a blood-red bag
The crowd hit the bottles and drink to his health
The guest now receives many hails

Then from far away is gettin’ to town
A scary tale: a new tyrant’s rising unbound
The hero has no master, defender o’ subdued
A hail and he’s riding again

Rolls the tyrant’s head my friend
Rolls and springs away from his golden throne
Now the tyrant knows
Rise to fall

“Rise to fall
(It’s) the meaning of all”
The man knew that riding into the storm
Grows the oak from a little brown acorn
But it falls down too when its time has come

Rolls the tyrant’s head my friend
Rolls and springs away from his golden throne
Track Name: Lord of Gifts
I’m coming to your land
Lord of the Elven smiths
You will be guided by me
I’ll teach you how to forge the rings

Hiding my identity
Blind are your eyes before me
And you’ll call me “my friend”
I am pure evil in disguise

Submission to my will
And darkness falls on all the lands
Obey your Master
I am the Lord of Gifts

We will make sixteen rings
Crafted for men and dwarves
We’ll make this Middle-Earth...
A finer place than Valinor

But now you’ve learned my plans
You have concealed three “stars”
Made for the Elven Kings
To protect from evil in disguise

Submission to my will
And darkness falls on all the lands
Obey your Master
I am the Lord of Gifts

I’m coming to your land
Obey your Master
... of gifts
