    Your opinion entirely. For me its Five Hundred and One, although Miklagard Overture and The Dnieper Rapids don't run far behind

    Off the bat, I liked M.O the best, but as I listened more and more I'd have to say Five Hundred and One followed by D.R.

    A Portage to the Unknown. Something there that makes me want to go on a raid. :D
    Closely followed by Cursed be Iron and Miklagard overture.

    To Holmgard and Beyond is thw most similar a track off Battle Metal, so it would [maybe] take first place. I didn't like Cursed be Iron when I first heard it; now I fucking love it. In the Court of Jarisleif is just a great track and you can tell it'd be awesome live. Miklagard Overture...

    I didn't vote as I cannot choose.

    I've got the Director's Cut and there's no option for Rasputin....


    Of the main album, Jarisleif or Miklagard Overture. I tend to be dangerous listening to the latter loudly.

    umh, i was undecided: jarisleif or dnieper rapids...?
    But In the Court of Jarisleif is really original (for me).... I vote for that.

    Five Hundred and One

    "Long is the way to the unknown,
    Long is the way we have come;
    At the head of the ships a horn was blown,
    We sailed off with the morning sun...
    Five Hundred and One..."

    One of the hardest choices I made in my life (?) but in the end, A Portage To The Unknown prevailed.

    I voted To Holmgard... a while back but would change it to Cursed Be Iron if I could. I absolutely love that song now.

    Just voted now. God this was hard... I had to go for In the Court of Jarisleif because I love it. :kickass::danceboy:
    I'd love to see a video of the song but seeing as it's a 'Rasputin' B-side that's unlikely to happen :bah:

    The Dnieper Rapids, no question whatsoever. I love everything about the song.
