I had heard the stories of all those old fools Stories of winter everlasting The end of days Brothers would turn on each other Families torn apart by themselves Kinsmen would bleed together, drowning themselves by the sword This snowfall, lasted for days I smell it in the air Already the blood has been spilt with frost arrived the fear The ground has frozen thorough There is no more sun I hear talks of Fimbulvinter Mankind shall come undone Three years, the blood of the fallen has brought me life Thus I stand here to witness the end of Fimbulvinter The thundersnow rumbles the sky The Glepnir has been shattered Unto the frostcovered ground six pieces of chain are scattered The fishbreath and a woman's beard The sound of cat's paw Mountainroots the bird's spittle and the sinews of a bear

Fendweller, the swordmaw slumbering the island of heather awaiting the snowfall His sons will break him free Black shall turn the sun of crimson gore Dead will feel the moon His freedom is reborn The stars will fall from the sky The world of men will burn The quests of two brothers be done For aeons, waited for this boon The elder swallows the sun while the younger devours the moon The untiring sisters of skies with no sanctuary Galloping across the sphere towards the great unknown Uprooted shall be the trees Mountains come crumbling down The stars will fall from the sky The world of men will burn Kun kahleetonna astuu jalka suden päälle maan koittaa aika mustan kyyneleen virrata Repii taivaan ja altaan polttaa maan Vain yksi vastaan nousta uskaltaa Black shall turn the sun of crimson gore Dead will feel the moon His freedom now reborn The stars will fall from the sky The world of men will burn The quests of two brothers be done For aeons, waited for this boon The elder swallows the sun while the younger devours the moon

The world darkens, the wings of rancor engulfing the ground Two heavenly bodies now gone The mistrust ignites From the midst of idle gods there was heard a call The mead-filled old man yelled across the hall I heard the lightning strike, six crackling roars The ripper of the skies has been set free Death Long-Due! Dressing for an easy war grasping his spear of great Yggdrasil root lusting for blood I shall paint the ground the curse of doom He will find his way the unmarked tomb On his steed he rode The legs like spiders quaked the ground Upon his shoulders the crows, ever cunning betrayal on their mind Hooves struck the heathers The old man had arrived The wolf unfettered with vengeance, roared How kind of you to join me oh father of the slain For eternity I waited for this day The crows turned on their master took off the loyal disguise The god of victory knew fear as they plucked out his eyes The swordmaw growled and leaped sinking his teeth in the throat so divine and heavens wept A mighty river flowed Blood of the king The rain of ash covered the winter's sting

Silent he rode on the woodlands Under the waning shroud of ignorance The trees whispered of dark times ahead He could feel the weight of the clouds With the wind crawled in the fog to devour all of the land Madness weighs him down like a rock upon his shoulders He dreads the hour of the wolf closing in Walking ever softly through the abysmal mist he saw a silhouette of true horror He heard the growl and felt the hunger Grasped his sword ignored the fear Madness weighs him down like a rock upon his shoulders He dreads the hour of the wolf closing in Charging against the foe The silent god Shoved his boot in the maw of the beast The wolf howled in pain The blade had pierced his skull through the eye death creeping near Madness weighs him down like a rock upon his shoulders He dreads the hour of the wolf closing in

Unyielding 04:18
Glasir withers away In the absence of all light The hawks, the vultures above relish in the night Vidarr, the wounded god bleeding upon the roots of the greatest ash rotten on it's sides The world tree shivers Decadence in his veins Where hope once bloomed It now wilts away The wolfblood like venom through the heart of the silent one Took one final beat A vast life came undone The world tree shivers Decadence in his veins Where hope once bloomed It now wilts away The seeping blood, god and wolf through the roots of the world awakened the unyielding within And the powers of the void

From the realm of fire the wreck of the world the jötunn charged onward at his wake, the ground burned Boundless now, raged the serpent Ocean waves hit the shores His fangs above like rapids flowed his venom Kohti sotaa kaiken päättävää Valheiden jumala tiellään tuonelaan Kuoleman laiva nousee harjalle vaahtopään Ketunhännät taivaita nuolee The sovereign snake called out the direst storm of time On top of the surge rode the great ship, sublime No more prophecies Nor beacons of hope The purification of mankind long awaited, arrives Kohti sotaa kaiken päättävää Valheiden jumala tiellään tuonelaan Kuoleman laiva nousee harjalle vaahtopään Ketunhännät taivaita nuolee Riimujen, suomujen lyödessä merestä raivollaan irralleen aallonharjat Kynsien jäänteet ja raatojen vana Laivamme kölistä taakseen jää Kohti sotaa kaiken päättävää Valheiden jumala tiellään tuonelaan Kuoleman laiva nousee harjalle vaahtopään Ketunhännät taivaita nuolee Guiderune glows in the night The vessel of the end glides silently through the dark

Lycomania 03:52
The vast plains of Vigrid Hundreds of leagues before us This world shall behold, true death in all of it's forms Horn blasts in the darkness The gods awaken from slumber as the ship of the dead comes crashing on to shore The brothers infernal together World serpent and the swordmaw Ready and willing for war as the fires of Surtr... arise Followed by his sons and Garm, the hound of Hel The wolves howl and charge with the beasts of Muspel The gods had formed their ranks though scattering they appeared All of them, crowned by death before the last light wanes The lightning fires up the clouds Flames divide the storm Hearken the sound of peril The final clash in the north Kuin kasteena aamun, valui veri niityn korsilla Eivät mahtaviin tekoihin pystyneet Jumaliksi itsensä nostaneet Raivoisa tuuli niittyä piiskaa On ainoa ääni sen huuto Pian se katseensa kääntää pois Suden aika koittaa saa

Time floats upon me as the daughter of Sun climbs up the sky The new world beyond the gates of north unspoilt by the reach of men Light dies beside me as the daughter of Moon climbs up the night Time floats upon me as the daughter of Sun climbs up the sky Survivors from the war of Vigrid Walking silently with hope reborn Light dies beside me as the daughter of Moon climbs up the night Yet for the swordmaw, the hope would't dawn he paid the gruesome price, the blood of his sons Time floats upon me as the daughter of Sun climbs up the sky The deepest sorrow took ahold of him Undying pain carved him hollow Light dies beside me as the daughter of Moon climbs up the night The quest of two brothers is done In a blazing pyre they burned The war had reaped it's fill Howling father left to mourn Vaeltaja hangen harmajan Polkunsa jakanut ainiaan elämän nyrkkiin sulkien ei enää mitään taakseen jää Time floats upon me as the daughter of Sun climbs up the sky The world above the loss and sorrow unspoilt by the hate and fear Light dies beside me as the daughter of Moon climbs up the night So gloom unfolds the eternity The guide is no longer there
