Exclamation With Oden On Our Side - Lyrics!

The lyrics - by hearing. Incomplete and full of errors but Ill do the best I can, if you also already have the new album - feel free to help!

Quote:
1. Valhall Awaits Me

Blood gushes from the wound
The cut is wide and deep
Right before I turn around
He falls to his knees

A clear song rings in the blade
When steel meets hardend steel
I hear the sound of wood that breaks
A swords cut through my shield

I drop the shield and grab my axe
My weapon in his fist
A fierce blow makes the helmet crack
The axe cut to the teeth

I rip the axe from the head
covered in blood and brains
Leave the body lying dead
Ready to strike again

My sword cuts through clothes and skin
Like a hot knife cuts through snow
I smile as the bastard screams
when I twist my sword

Sword in my hand and axe on my side
Valhall awaits! Soon I will die
Sword in my hand and axe on my side
Valhall awaits me, when I die
Bearskin on my back
Wolfsjaw on my head
Valhall awaits me, when I'm dead

I raise my axe above my head
My eyes turned furious rage
Yet more blood will be shed
This is a victorious day!

Blood gushes from the wound
The cut is wide and deep
As they turn around
I fall to my knees

[solo]

Sword in my hand and axe on my side
Valhall awaits! Soon I will die
Sword in my hand and axe on my side
Valhall awaits me, when I die
Bearskin on my back
Wolfjaw on my head
Valhall awaits me, when I'm dead!


2. Runes To My Memory

We hold the rivers of the eastern trail
Deep in the land of the Rus
Following the wind in our sails
And the rythm of the oars

No shelter in this hostile land
Constantly on guard
Ready to fight and defend, our ship to bitter end

We came under attack
I received a deadly wound
A spear was forced into my back
Still I fought on

When I am dead, lay me in a mound
Raise a stone for all to see
Runes come to my memory!

Here I lie on the river bank
A long long way from home
Life is pouring out of me
Soon I will be gone
I tilt my head, to the side
And think of those back home
I see the river rushing by
The blood runs from my wound

Here I lie, on wet sand
I will not make it home
I clench my sword in my hand
Say farewell to those I love

When I am dead, lay me in a mound
Place my weapons by my side
For the journey to hall up high

When I am dead, lay me in a mound
Raise a stone for all to see
Runes come to my memory!
To my memory


3. Asator

Thunder arose across the plains
Thor rides in pouring rain
He rides to Jotumheim to fight
Lightning strikes when Mjollnir cries

Fire! burning in his eyes
Fire! his head explodes to the lightning strike
Fire! burning in his eyes
Fire! his head explodes, see the lightning strike

Lightning cracks the blackend sky
Hear the thunder champion ride
All the men with hearts of war
Ride the path of mighty Thor

Son of thunder!
Lighting strikes
Son of thunder!
Son of thunder!
Thor Arise!
Son of thunder!

Son Of Oden
Thundergod
Master of War
Asator!

Fire! burning in these lands
Fire! his head explodes, see the lightning strike
Fire! burning in his eyes
Fire! his head explodes, see the lightning strike


4. Hermods Ride to Hel

Ride Sleipnir
Ride for all your worth
Faster then lightning
To the dark realms of the world

Through valleys of darkness
On the way to Nifelheim
To the house of Hel
Where my brother awaits

Wailing voices on the wind
Urging me to turn
Distant torture screams
Cold blue fires burn

I hear the sound of River Gjöll
Running cold and deep
Its golden bridge hangs in the dark
The bridge that Modgunn keeps

Over the bridge, all through the night
Hel is getting near
There are the gates, towering high
Afflicting me with fear

In her hall at the honour seat
My brother sits in pain
Pale and tortured by the shrieks
Bound by invisible frozen chains

[Hermod:]
I am bound to bring him back with me!
The whole world mourns his death!
Please set brother free!
Give him back his breath!

[Hel:]
If its true, what you say to me
That the whole world mourns his death
If the whole world will weep, I will give him back his life!


5. Gods Of War Arise

Darkness flees the rising sun
The village lies ahead
It will awake to a new day soon
Soon they'll all be dead
We came in cover of moonless night
Fifty men at arms
Now at first morning light,
The church bell sounds the alarm

Sacrifice to Gods above
Free them of their lives
Fresh blood on our swords
Gods Of War Arise!

Hear the tyrant screams
Shattering the air
They awake from soothing dreams
Into their worst nightmare
Fire sweeps their homes
They feel the dragon's breath
Consuming and destructive flames
Agonising death

Some seek shelter in the church
A refuge for those with faith
But we know how to smoke them out
A pyre will be raised

But those who choose to stand and fight
Will die with dignity
For the unfortunate few who survived
Waits a life in slavery

The day draws to a end
The night comes dark and cold
We return to our ships
With silver, slaves and gold
We gave them agony, as they fell and died
The Gods have granted victory
For our sacrifice

[solo]


6. With Oden On Our Side

Finally the storm arrives
Our wait is at an end
Under dark winter skies
We make our final stand

For each of us, there are four of them
It matters not to us
We won't leave this field in shame
We are here to crush!

Futile to resist
You know why we have come
Futile to resist
The battle is already won!

Our hearts are full of pounding rage
Our minds hard as steel
Right before the dying day
We will have you down

The stone turns red from all the blood
Severed limbs and heads
A sacrifice to one eyed God
He will claim the dead!

Under the winter skies
We stand glorious!
And with Oden on our side
We are victorious!

No retreat, no remorse
Victory will be ours
Blood on steel, sacrifice
Victory will be ours

[solo]

Futile to resist!
The battle is won!


7. Cry of The Black Birds

Raise your swords up high!
See the black birds fly!
Let them hear your rage!
Show no fear!
Attack!

Charge your horses across the fields
Together we ride into destiny
Have no fear of death, when its our time
Oden will bring us home, when we die!

The ground trembles under us
As we make our thunder charge
The pounding hooves spread panic and fear into their hearts
Our helmets shine in the sun as we near their wall of shields
Some of them turn and run
When they hear our frantic screams!

Throw your swords to (the) sky!
Hear the Black Birds cry!
Let them feel your hate!
Show no fear!

Attack!

The enemy are in disarray
Like a cowardice they run
Send them to their final graves
Don't spare anyone
Kill the wounded by order of
See the pain in their eyes

Over the field and fear the sound
As we hear the ravens cry


8. Under The Northern Star

The icy winter is getting near
Dark skies above us
Biting frost is in the air
Darkness surrounds us

The cold piercing autumn breeze
Fills the longships sail
Soon the lakes and seas will freeze
And snow will lay its veil

Many years we have been away
Many oceans we have roam(ed)
Now the North star guides us on our way
As we are heading home

The many hardships we've endured that brought us rich rewards
Now the North star guides us home
With cargo full of gold

Many friends died on the way
Only few of us survived
But I would gladly trade them place
In Odens hall up high

[Fuckin awesome solo!]

The icy winter is getting near
Dark skies above us
Biting frost is in the air
Darkness surrounds us

Soon the lakes and seas will freeze
And snow will lay its trail
And we will hope for the summer breeze
When we can set our sails


9. Prediction Of Warfare

Ships were prepared
Weapons and shields
Sails were raised
We're heading out to sea!

Norway just a bed in the east
Our journey had begun
Helpfull winds gave us our speed
Under a warming sun

Heading to the emerald land
A fleet of 50 ships
A army of 2000 men, led by the king

Army arising, dark and ferous
Horror across the black roads
As the night rolled in over us
We felt the wrath of the storm

That night I was haunted by dreams
An omen, of what was to come
The serpent arose from the sea

Ready to strike
With hammer in hand
The serpent in pain, twisting in furious rage!
Fought for its live
The serpent escaped
Thor was in rage
..My dreams began to fade..

[solo of some sort]

Awoke of my dreams
Sword in my hand
The break of dawn
Closing in on Irish land
Time to attack
Grabbed our shields
We came ashore
And saw the waiting horde

The fight was short and deadly intense
The Irish fought us well
But as we gained the upperhand
Their fighting spirit dwelled

Ready to strike
With swords in our hands
The struggle with heart
The Irish fell to our wrath
Fought for his live
The king escaped
With fury divine
King Olav threw his sword

Update #3. That's all folks! Now all it needs it to be corrected at some points.

Sorry for the last song, the vocals sound very 'dark' on there, its hard to understand!
I enjoyed writing the lyrics out though. When they are somewhat more complete I'll submit them to DarkLyrics.com

"Ride sleeper"

Should be Sleipnir, as that was who Odin gave to Hermod on his ride.

I will seek a deadly world (?)
A spear was forced into my back
Still I fought on
"I received a deadly wound"

Raise a stone for all to see
Runes come to my memory!
"When I am dead,lay me in a mound

Here I lie, on great sea
I will not make it home
I clench my sword in my hand
Say farewell to those alone
"here i lie on wet sand" and 'say farewell to those I love"

It would move around, sure, but if I kept my accuracy, it would eventually be destroyed.

Actually, I think it's threw, because he's pissed that he fled
