Lyrics 1. In Memoriam Lindisfarne (instrumental) 2. Ynglinga Saga (To Odin We Call) He came from the land of Asaland The ruler of Asgard From the land of ice and snow He conquered all of Saxland And the giants of Jotunheim The ravens fly where he'll go A wise and travelled warrior, a cunning enemy Taking what we sacrifice Across the rainbow bridge Giving strength in battle, giving victory Odin's chosen heroes May cross the rainbow bridge Hear the thunder The sky is cracks See the rainbow bridge There's no turning back Valkyrs riding a bloody trail Heroes cross to Asgard, never fail To Odin we call – in his name we will fight Riding on dragons through the waves And the gods on our side To Odin we call – in his name we will fight

Summon the valkyrs in the sky On the wings of death we ride The power of the Skalds And the magic of the runes He taught to us who sacrifice By the cold light of the moon The father of the Ynglinga The house of our kings The battle sound amuses him And battle we shall bring Mad as wild dogs Strong as the bear I bite my shield in anger Life I never spare A deadly blow, as cold as ice The power of the berserk, take your life To Odin we call – in his name we will fight Riding on dragons through the waves And the gods on our side To Odin we call – in his name we will fight Summon the valkyrs in the sky On the wings of death we ride Hear the thunder The sky is cracks See the rainbow bridge There's no turning back Valkyrs riding a bloody trail Heroes cross to Asgard, never fail To Odin we call – in his name we will fight

Riding on dragons through the waves And the gods on our side To Odin we call – in his name we will fight Summon the valkyrs in the sky On the wings of death we ride And the gods are on our side...

3. The Sons Of The Dragon Slayer Regnat the Dragon Slayer, king of sea and land When people spot your sail they fear the sword that's in your hand I was born your son and with my brothers I sailed out To feed the ravens, steal the gold where battle rages loud You had to go to England with the few men you could gain And outnumbered ten to one your heroes they were slain You searched for death in battle but the falling light of day Saw you as a prisoner in chains they dragged you away In a pit of snakes By vermin's breath Die you lost your life No honour in such a death The sons of the dragon slayer All for one we stand We'll cut the blood eagle And your life shall soak the land The sons of the dragon slayer King Ella you'll repent I'll cut the blood eagle And your life shall soak your land Ivar my brother king of London let me know He bribed the English nobles so king Ella stands alone Now's the time to gather men to play the bloody game

Take their lives and spill their blood to wash away the shame Long boats touch the sand. Northern warriors steel in hand The enemy is weak, no way to defend Running through the lines, falling on a fearing prey Rognar's sons deal hard. And in the end they win the day In a lake of blood King Ella's death Die hard die slowly die The blood eagle drinks your breath The sons of the dragon slayer All for one we stand We'll cut the blood eagle And your life shall soak the land The sons of the dragon slayer King Ella you'll repent I'll cut the blood eagle And your life shall soak your land And the lonely one is strong And we got our friends to count on Through the hard times and the rain So we'll never play your rules It is our life it is our game

4. Ragnhild's Dream Ragnhild the daughter of Sigurd Hjort Her father murdered and she was taken Far away across the fjord, a slave to be her fate forsaken Halfdan the black the king of Agder He heard about her beauty and her sadness in life Rescue the lady make her a queen, set free a slave, gain a wife There's greatness and grace for the northern race A strong hand to come, a king for the throne He shall lead Norway on Ragnhild's dream. A thorn in her hand grows a tree so high Ragnhild's dream. Rooted in blood but the branches reach for the sky A strong han to come, reach for the sun in the sky Their son is born a child of beauty Crows a young man strong and fair Harald Harfarger, Halfdan's son Looking for dangers few man dare King Halfdan he died at the age of forty Leaving his people to Odin he rode Harald must rule the kingdom of Agder Praying to Thor, fate will unfold There's greatness and grace for the northern race

A strong hand to come, a king for the throne He shall lead Norway on Ragnhild's dream. A thorn in her hand grows a tree so high Ragnhild's dream. Rooted in blood but the branches reach for the sky.

5. Harald Harfager My father died when I was ten years old Many kings looked at my lands thriving to get a hold But I was old enough to hold a sword and strong enough to fight King Gandalf lost his life. Eystein's sons in cold earth they lie Now I am a mighty king broad lands I own Time has come to find a wife so lonely in my throne Gyda of Hardanger greater beauty eyes will never see My men you go and bade her greetings ask her to marry me Go and tell king Harald I will not marry him until he has subdued the whole of Norway For only than can he be called a great king I make the solemn vow that never shall I clip or comb my hair Until I have subdued the whole of Norway or if not have died in the attempt In Orkedalen king Gryting was beat On his knees he prayed to be my man Eight battles I fought with the host I lead But now Drontheim is in my hand Arnvid and Audbjorn I met them on the waves Of their dragons there were many around But I was mad with anger my bloodlust ablaze

And so I sent their ships to the ground I'm standing proud and tall Harald Halfager on your knees you fall United in my hand The king of Norway my fatherland Bow to the king of Norway's throne United the crown in his alone Now I will comb my hair A firm hand to lead the country on United to hold on hold and strong A king so young and fair I am the king and my word is the law Bow your head or you'll repent Eric the Red your freedom's no more Lay down your sword or leave my land Good men leave or good man die But the king stands proud and tall Grayskin you'll rule, son of mine Cause I can hear the Valkyrs call I'm standing proud and tall Harald Harfager on your knees you fall Bow to the king of Norway's throne United the crown in his alone Now I will comb my hair A firm hand to lead the country on United to hold on hold and strong A king so young and fair [Speech] Fresh from the battle field came in Dripping with blood the Norsemen's king With battered shield and blood smeared sword Slits one beside the shores of Stord

With armour crushed and gashed sits he A grim and gastly sight to see And round about in sorrow stand The warriors of this gallant band In Odin's hall an empty place Stands for a king of Yngves race Go my Valkyries Odin said Go forth my angels of the dead Gondul and Skogul to the plain Drenched with the battles bloody rain And to the dying Harald tell Here in Valhal he shall dwell

6. Eric The Red Away from Iceland's shores I must, the king says I must go Some neighbours asked a fight with me and I laid their bodies low Now my face is in the wind again and friends are by my side The green land we are looking for and we trust in Odin's might Come join me now I know the way, (We'll be free!) No king to rule us down (Ride the sea!) Man the boats and hoist the sails, (All hands on deck!) There's land to find I know, (Don't look back!) Through the wind and storm I'll carry on To a new land where the sun will dawn In the wind and storm I'll raise my head Eric the Red My son I see the fire in your eyes as I felt when I was young And I've listened to the Skalds and tales, you've gotta go as I have done But it's your way Leif Eriksson, the Red has come too old The Vinland you will find I know, Ride the wind be strong and bold Come join me now I know the way, (We'll be free!) No king to rule us down

(Ride the sea!) Man the boats and hoist the sails, (All hands on deck!) There's land to find I know, (Don't look back!) Through the wind and storm I'll carry on To a new land where the sun will dawn In the wind and storm I'll raise my head Eric the Red.

7. Freedom (The Saga Of Gang Hrolf) I fought like a free man so I broke the law The way of the vikings don't count here no more And strong is the arm of the tyrant that rules The Jarls of the free they were taken like fools So friends come aboard and away on the sea The shores of France seem a promise to me Battles to be fought their king he is weak There's land to be taken a fortune to seek 'Cause we'll stay free A master of the waves a wolf of the sea 'Cause we'll stay free Ho ho Gang Hrolf Ho ho Gang Hrolf Freedom is the goal that you fight for in life Let no tyrant take it away Freedom is all that is left on my hands And a wolf of the see I shall stay The battles are won and the simple asks for peace Here I shall rule as the Duke of Normandy They tell me kiss his feet so I lift them to my face I'll never bow my head

nor any of my race Cause we'll stay free A master of the waves a wolf of the sea Cause we'll stay free Ho ho Gang Hrolf Ho ho Gang Hrolf Freedom is the goal that you fight for in life Let no tyrant take it away Freedom is all that is left on my hands And a wolf of the see I shall stay

8. Treason Our lives have turned sad The harvest again was bad And it's growing worse hungry children cry They pray to a new god while their people die But fortune does not grow from a lie What is our hope when kings betray Sigurd was too strong but in ambush they lay His brother helped and he was paid in gold Now Sigurd lies dead bloodless and cold Treason dwells in our king He lies betrays and kills at night What fortune can it bring? Treason walks in this land The Grayskin murders smile on his face But blood is on his hands King Tryggve was strong And Erik's sons feared him well So in the dark of the night He was stabbed and fell And Sigurd's son they tried to buy But he remembered his father and saw the lie Treason dwells in our king He lies betrays and kills at night What fortune can it bring? Treason walks in this land The Grayskin murders smile on his face But blood is on his hands.

9. Sword In The Storm (The Saga Of Earl Hakon, Protector Of Norway) Come Skald sit thee with us and tell us of the past The deeds of viking warriors in your songs they'll ever last We long to hear of Hakon, the Earl of Norway's shores Or how he killed the Gravskin and stood the Jomsburg force He was born the son of Sigurd, his father stabbed by royal hands He escaped and turned a viking, his frame spread across the lands And on the day he faced the Gravskin, anger wished just like a burning flood Hakon the maker of widows taking lives as his blade drinks blood The fish return now into the fjord, the harvest rich Hakon we hail thy sword Raising temples where a church did stand. Odin smiles to praise the land Sword in the storm, the rock in the battle Hakon you stand and be Odin thy guide Strong be thy arm, oh sword in the storm Thor grant you strength to defend what is right And when the viking of the Jomsburg set their sails against our shores Strong in numbers famous heroes, Hakon you fought them to the core And in the middle of the bloodshed,

standing strong I saw your hands reach for the sky Calling for help in the turmoil, Odin took your son as a sacrifice The fish return now into the fjord, the harvest rich Hakon we hail thy sword Raising temples where a church did stand. Odin smiles to praise the land Sword in the storm, the rock in the battle Hakon you stand and be Odin thy guide Strong be thy arm, oh sword in the storm Thor grant you strength to defend what is right But in the end of people asked for the reign of a Christian king Betraying Hakon they soon forgot the good his rule did bring In his sleep, killed by a thrall a hero's bitter end Trygve's son was to succeed to rule the Northern Land

10. Blood Rains (The Saga Of King Olaf Trygvason) On the blackened eve of destruction A king arises with the promise of light But the Jarls who held him high Were soon to see that they followed a lie Wise magicians and healing women Put to the stake by royal hands Baptized they would not be And so in flames their life did end Odin thy face It fades in the blood The heathen oaks burned It's the end of a god Blood rains from the sky Love is just a Christian lullaby I can't believe I'd rather die Blood rains from the sky Preaching love while tortured victims cry I won't believe I'd rather die Bondes who would not dip in the water At the Althing he had put them dead A royal smile a lie on the lips Believe in Christ or drink burning lead Raud a mighty Jarl on the isle He was taken at night and tried to a stake His house on flames Yet he would not fold his hands Condemned to death He had to swallow a snake

Odin thy face It fades in the blood The heathen oaks burned It's the end of a god Blood rains from the sky Love is just a Christian lullaby I can't believe I'd rather die Blood rains from the sky Preaching love while tortured victims cry I won't believe I'd rather die

11. Ruling The Waves I have been on viking cruises, taking what they wouldn't give Sacrifice to Njord the master of the waves on which I live Now I found a king to follow, now I serve the Forked Beard Sven the son of Harald Bluetooth, King of Denmark knows and feared To England – our dragons had to ride To help the beaten Aethelred – the Picts we must fight And many – a hero died that day I raged with bloodlust and I cut their lives away And so we beat them on a field of gore and bone But there is a price to pay, the English should have known Aethelred, oh Aethelred – your kingdom now is gone The king of Denmark takes your crows, oh you should have known The northern sea he rules, Denmark and England he unites The norsemen rule the waves and king Sven holds all the might The Forked Beard he rules and like the devil we will fight We rule the waves. Fear the vikings pride Hey, hey – we are ruling the waves...

We burn the churches and the cross The serpents of the crucified, their lives are at a loss Sven prays to Odin and to Thor The power of the ancient gods who dwelt here long before And so we hunt those who have burnt the oak trees down The heathen roots run deep the ancient gods are still around Crucified, oh crucified, you should have known Your time has not yet come and so we burn your houses down The northern sea he rules, Denmark and England he unites The norsemen rule the waves and king Sven holds all the might The Forked Beard he rules and like the devil we will fight We rule the waves. Fear the vikings pride Hey, hey – we are ruling the waves...

12. Canute The Great (The King Of Danish Pride) Now that I fight With might and main The Danish troops I'll lead to fame Now I survey the lands Where I may stride The English soil I'm a King of Danish pride You have plundered the whole Isle of Man To become a greater king And you murdered guiltless families In the massacre of all Danish men Aethelred. Oh Aethelred It's my will to fight and see you dead My troops are Viking warriors And we sail the river Themse Now that I fight With might and main The Danish troops I'll lead to fame Now I survey the lands Where I may stride The English soil I'm a King of Danish pride Forked Beard my father I have sailed the way you led To England on my Dragons And I avenged all the dead In Ashington, it was Ironside I slayed his troops it served him right Father, we took the lands

And we sailed the river Themse Now that I rule With might and main The Danish kingdom I lead to fame Now that I own the lands Where I may stride The English soil The King of Danish pride

13. Harald Hadrade Fifteen years, too young to die The saint he fell within the last battlecry But the time has come for you not yet Escape from the battle of Stiklestad Baptized by the sword and the shield Destined to be kind The last in line Lead this epoch to an end To be written in blood Named Harald Hadrade Out there in the world, afar from home Explore all the east and grow up so strong No riches, fights or prison walls Will keep you away, when your destiny calls Baptized by the sword and the shield Destined to be kind The last in line Lead this epoch to an end To be written in blood Named Harald Hadrade See Norway lies bare down to your feet King Magnus died, now your crown is complete At England's shores you will just arrive To fight your last battle and pay with your life Baptized by the sword and the shield Destined to be kind The last in line Lead this epoch to an end To be written in blood Named Harald Hadrade.
