Poll - Best song off the Varangian Way?

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.

To Holmgard and Beyond, just one vote, and that's from me. Wow!
Unbelievable, 'cause the song is huge.

A Portage to the Unknown. Something there that makes me want to go on a raid.
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.

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.

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

For me it's a really tough decision between Miklagard Overture and Five Hundred and One. Even though the whole album is amazing, those 2 songs really stand out to me because of the huge amount of EPIC running through them. In the end I'm a sucker for long epic tracks, so I vote for Miklagard overture.

Even though I didn't like the female choir at the end of the song at first (didn't know the lyrics back then and I felt Nygard should have ''ended the album''), I grew to love it and... it's just so damn awesome. A great end to a solid story and an amazing album.

The Dnieper Rapids is a really overlooked song. Can't believe only one person voted it.
