    is

    "the tall shall
    for the sabbs revench"

    slang for

    "the tale shall
    for the stabs revenge"

    ?

    (no sense anyway -> typical swedish nonsense)

    thanks tritonus, please tell me the correct translation for these 2 verses.. :)

    they don't mean tall in a literal sense, so change that to great or noble, or whatever a viking would prefer.

    Well, duh, if you listen to Amon Amarth and expect lyrical epiphanies, you kinda missed their whole point.
    I love Amon Amarth, not because their lyrics are very deep or thoughtinspiring, but because they kick ass. Their theme is always the same along with the music, but unoriginal isnt automatically boring. I love them, if you want to enlarge your inetelluctual horizon, I recommend DT, Nevermore and the likes ^^

    I know, I just felt like saying something stupid.

    Truly, if I'm looking for good lyrics I'll stick to DT, uneXpect, Primordial, Mastodon etc...

    Amon Amarth is one of my favourite bands because of its extreme rocking potential. In fact, about half of the bands I listen to, I do so solely for the musical side. Stuff like Behemoth, Old Man's Child and Hypocrisy aren't exactly what you could call "inspiring".

    "Mäktiga gudar,
    i gyllene salen.
    Hjälp mig i striden
    mot sondräparna,
    Den höge skall
    För huggen hämnas
    och blod skall gäldas
    i blod"

    Mighty gods
    in the golden hall
    help me in the battle
    againt the sonslayers
    the tall shall (yes, it's what I guess they meant)
    for the stabbs revench
    and blood shall be repayed
    in blood

    Den höge skall
    För huggen hämnas = means that a tall/proud man will revench someone for stabbing someone else. And it's just litteraly....

    Tri: They are spelling-whores and horrible annoying ogres, but don't leave DT's board for them, just ignore them. It's still DT's board. ;)

    this made me think of the ultimate ghastly power metal crossover from the early 90s.

    swords in the wind
    there is nothing lasting long

    the thing is that you, as far as i know, don't use "tall" in that sense in english, and i really can't see why it should be taken literally. the not so subtle translation would probably be "odin shall blaha blaha..."; at least in havamal oden is called "den höge" so it probably refers to him, and i for one have no idea about his actual length. :)
