Track Name: Iron Sword
HEED THE CALL TO BATTLE
BEFORE I YET FORGED MY SWORD
BUT IRON IS THE ALL TIME & LIFE AFFORD THEE
HARK, BATTLE DRAWS NEAR
THE TIME TO FORGE IS CLEAR
IRON IS THE SWORD, TO BE HELD BY THIS LORD

RIDE ME TO BATTLE, IRON SWORD BY MY SIDE
STRIPPED OF THE STEEL, BUT NOT THE WILL TO KILL
THEY THINK THY WEAPONS ARE WEAK,
BUT THY WARRIOR IS NOT MARCH ON TO SLAY THEE,
BUT YOUR HEAD LAY BY MY SIDE

MY SWORD IS COVERED BLOOD
THE BLOOD OF ALL THE FOOLS
DON'T BE DECIEVED BY THE LOOKS
I HOLD YOUR DEATH IN MY HANDS

RAISE THE IRON SWORD!
RAISE THE IRON SWORD!
YOUR HEAD LAY AT MY FEET
CUT OFF BY MY SWORD

MANY MEN HAVE COME TO FACE ME
LONG LOST, THEY ARE TO BE
SOMEWHERE TRAMPLED, LEFT WITH NO HEAD
THY SWORD CRIMSON RED
BURRIED & STAINED WITH BLOOD
BUT THE STEEL I STILL HAVE NOT

RIDE ME TO BATTLE IRON SWORD BY MY SIDE
STRIPPED OF THE STEEL, BUT NOT THE WILL TO KILL
LET THE FULL MOON GLOW,
LET THE BLOOD STAINS SHOW
THE SWORD & I, SHALL NOT BE TAMED

[GODIN: SOLO]
Track Name: Black Knight
BLACK IS MY ARMOR - BLACK IS MY SWORD
LOOK INTO THE EYES - OF THIS DARK LORD
BLACK IS MY SHIELD - BLACK IS MY HEART
I REALLY DON'T CARE - WHO THOU ART

THE DARKNESS INSIDE OF ME
ALL IT SHALL BE
FROM THE PITS OF HELL I AM FREE

BLOOD NOW I LUST - BLOOD NOW I SEEK
THE SMELL OF HUMANS - MAKES ME SO WEAK
BLOOD I SHALL SPILL - BLOOD I SHALL DRINK
BLOOD AND DEATH MY WILL - PURIFY MY PAIN

THE DARKNESS INSIDE OF ME
I JUST LET IT BE
THE FACE OF EVIL YOU WILL SEE

ON A BLACK HORSE I RIDE
AND A BLACK SWORD I WIELD
NO MERCY GIVEN, AND TO NONE I YIELD
NO CREST HAVE I & BLACK IS MY SHIELD
THE BLACK KNIGHT AM I ON THIS BATTLEFIELD

[GODIN: SOLO]

SLAY NO FOR LAND - SLAY NOT FOR LUST
THE JOY OF THE BATTLE - AND IN MY SWORD I TRUST
FROM HELL I HAVE COME - TO HELL I WILL GO
YOU'LL BE THERE BEFORE ME - O' THIS I KNOW

BRING HELL UPON ME
UNLEASH MY WRATH
NOTHING MORE YOU'LL SEE
Track Name: Jotunheim
A WOMAN TO ME, WAS LOST AT THE SEA
TAKEN TO JOTUNHEIM
LARGE THEY WILL BE, GIANTS I'LL SEE
TO SET MY LADY FREE

A SWORD & SHIELD, WHAT I SHOULD WIELD
ON THE GIANT'S BATTLEFIELD
THE COURAGE I NEED, 8 PINTS OF MEAD
AS I FLY ON MY STEED

LOOK DOWN, STILL NO FEAR
HONOR HAS IT'S OWN REWARDS
IT'S A NICE DAY TO DIE

BLOOD! STEEL!
WHAT I SHOULD WIELD ON THIS BATTLEFIELD
BLOOD! STEEL!
JOTUNHEIM

[GODIN: SOLO]

AS I STUMBLE TO THE BATTLE, FALL OUT OF THE SADDLE
DRAW YOUR WEAPONS TO ME
SHOCKED & DISMAY, THE GIANTS LAUGH AWAY
LADY FLEE WITH THEE
NO BATTLE DID OCCUR, WOUNDED MY HONOR
AS I RIDE TO JOTUNHEIM
DRAGGED THROUGH THE MUD,
GIANTS DRINK MY BLOOD
VALHALLA IT IS TIME

LOOK DOWN, STILL NO FEAR
HONOR HAS IT'S OWN REWARDS
IT'S A NICE DAY TO DIE

BLOOD! STEEL!
WHAT I TO BRING TO JOTUNHEIM
BLOOD! STEEL!
JOTUNHEIM
Track Name: Berserker
[GODIN: SOLO]

I'VE DRESSED IN MY WOLFSKINS
I'VE SHARPENED MY WEAPONS
I'M READY TO FIGHT & DIE
HOW MANY TIMES BEFORE
TIME TO SETTLE A SCORE
NO MORE, WILL I TAKE

GOING TO BATTLE, NOT KNOWING THE OUTCOME
WATCHING MY BRETHEREN DIE,
SEEING THE BLOOD, MY EYES GROW DIM
I START TO BURN

BERSERKER! BERSERKER! THEIR CURSE IS UPON YOU
BERSERKER! BERSERKER! AXES OV DOOM
BERSERKER! BERSERKER! TAKE IN THE STEEL
BERSERKER! BERSERKER! AXES OV DOOM

HEED THE CALL TO ARMS
BEFORE I KILL & DISARM
I CLNECH MY AXES
TO THINE OWN GLORY

HOW MANY TIMES BEFORE
TIME TO SETTLE A SCORE
NO MORE, WILL I TAKE

GOING TO BATTLE, NOT KNOWING THE OUTCOME
WATCHING MY BRETHEREN DIE,
SEEING THE BLOOD, MY EYES GROW DIM
I START TO BURN

BERSERKER! BERSERKER! THEIR CURSE IS UPON YOU
BERSERKER! BERSERKER! AXES OV DOOM
BERSERKER! BERSERKER! TAKE IN THE STEEL
BERSERKER! BERSERKER! AXES OV DOOM

[CHORUS]
Track Name: Viking Warrior
WE SAIL TONIGHT
OUR SAILS SETS WEST
TO NEWLAND WE RIDE

NO TURNING BACK
FOR HOME IS NOW LOST
THE ATLANTIC OCEAN NOW CROSSED
BUT AT WHAT COST

AND SO THE STORM RAGES ON
NO CHOICE BUT TO FIGHT ON
AND SO THE BATTLE RAGES ON

WHY DOES THIS BATTLE SEEM NEVER ENDING
I'VE SWORN TO FIGHT TILL I DIE
MY AXES ARE BLOODY
MY WOUNDS ARE STILL BLEEDING
AS A VIKING WAS BORN TO LIVE & DIE

NEW LAND WE HAVE ARRIVED
NO REST TONIGHT
NEW ENEMIES IN SIGHT
FOR WAR THEY RIDE

FOR WAR IS MAN BORN
HE PROVES TO GAIN
THE BATTLE NEVER ENDS
LET MY AXES SING

AND SO THE STORM RAGES ON
NO CHOICE BUT TO FIGHT ON
AND SO THE BATTLE RAGES ON

[CHORUS]
[GODIN: SOLO]

AND SO THE STORM RAGES ON
NO CHOICE BUT TO FIGHT ON
AND SO THE BATTLE RAGES ON

[CHORUS]
Track Name: Blessed by the Mace
UNHALLOWED BE THY NAME
CURSED TO WALK THIS EARTH
AND LEFT WITH NOTHING BUT FIRE
TO TEMPER THY OWN STEEL
SEARCHED OUT FOR WHAT'S REAL
ILLUSION IS WHAT YOU FIND
FLESH IS STRONGER THAN STEEL
YET YOUR FLESH IT SHALL SOON PEEL!

I BAPTISED BY MY STEEL
THE MACE WED TO YOUR FACE
THE RAGE OF A TITAN, YOU WILL FEEL!

IN THY DARKEST HOUR
MY BLOOD TURNS SOUR
I CALL FORTH TRUE POWER
BLESSED BY THE MACE

[GODIN: SOLO]

SET BY BRIDGES ABLAZE
THEY'RE ALL BEHIND ME
YET I BURN ON FIRE IT'S WHAT TAKES ME HIGHER
STEEL IS ONLY STRONG
AS THE HAND THAT WIELDS IT
I CRUSH STEEL & BONE
ARMED WITH STEEL OR NOT

I BAPTISED BY MY STEEL
THE MACE WED TO YOUR FACE
THE RAGE OF A TITAN, YOU WILL FEEL!

IN THY DARKEST HOUR
MY BLOOD TURNS SOUR
I CALL FORTH TRUE POWER
BLESSED BY THE MACE
Track Name: Ride of Sleipnir
IN THE YEAR 671
LONE BARBARIAN UNDER THE SUN
MADE THE OFFERINGS
SACRIFICED ALL TILL IT'S DONE
BUT THE STARS OF THE FATE
ALWAYS BLOCKED THE SUN
A HORSE TO SOME
FASTER THANY ANY COULD RUN

HOLD THE HAMMER - WAY UP HIGH!
LOOK AT THE GODS - FOR I RIDE THE SKY!

LEGENDS SAY HE RODE THOUGH FIRE
EIGHT LEGGED AND ALL KILLED THE SIRE
ENEMIES SAY HE HAD NO FEAR
RIDE OF THE SLEIPNIR!

ODIN'S HORSE
GREY AND STOLEN TO ME
REVENGE THE AIM
TO LET THOSE BASTARDS BE
BUT THE COST OF VICTORY
RAN THE HORSE INTO THE SEA
BUT COST OF BRAVERY
CALLED THE VALKYRIE'S TO ME

HOLD THE HAMMER - WAY UP HIGH!
LOOK AT THE GODS - FOR I RIDE THE SKY!

LEGENDS SAY HE RODE THOUGH FIRE
EIGHT LEGGED AND ALL KILLED THE SIRE
ENEMIES SAY HE HAD NO FEAR
RIDE OF THE SLEIPNIR!

[GODIN:SOLO]
[CHORUS]
Track Name: Vortigern
I'VE LIVED UNDER THEIR RULE, FOR TOO LONG NOW
THE KING & HIS CCLOWNS, TO KILL BUT HOW
THE NUMBERS ARE MANY, BURN UP A FIRE
SET THE CATSLE ABLAZE, DEAD KING WALKING

OUT IN THE COLD , SCATTERED AMONG HUMANS
A MAN WITH A CROWN, FALLS TO THE GROUND
MY BLADE IN HIS CHEST, HE'S GOING TO REST
LOOK HIGH ABOVE, THE CROWN ON MY HEAD

GUARDS MAKE YOUR WAY,
YOU'LL SOON HAVE A NEW KING
GUARDS FIGHT YOUR WAY
I AM VORTIGERN

NIGHT WILL FALL!
USURPER TO ALL, I'M HERE TO KILL THE KING

THE CROWN ON MY HEAD, THE SCEPTRE I HOLD
THE LEGIONS I COMMAND, NOW AT MY HAND
THE LAW I'M ABOVE, THIS RIGHT I'VE EARNED
NOW KNEEL TO THE KING, OR REASON HE WILL BRING

GUARDS MAKE YOUR WAY
YOU'LL SOON HAVE A NEW KING
GUARDS FIGHT YOUR WAY
I AM VORTIGERN

NIGHT WILL FALL!
USURPER TO ALL, I'M HERE TO KILL THE KING

[GODIN: SOLO]
Track Name: Valkyrie's Cry
WARRIOR CLAD IN IRON ARMOR
HALF MY FLESH LAY ON THE GROUND
BLOODY SWORD, I STILL WIELD
DEATH& THUNDER ON OUR BATTLEFIELD

BLOOD IS SPURTING FROM THEIR EYES
ALL THE MEN I HAVE KILLED
MY EYES BLOOD RED
READY TO TAKE THEIR FILL

THE VALKYRIE'S ARE FLYING WHY ARE THEY CRYING
THEY ARE SENT TO TAKE ME AWAY
THE VALKYRIE'S ARE CRYING
I'M IN THEIR ARMS FLYING
THIS IS MY HOUR OF DYING

THE FATES HAVE SPOKEN
CRUSHED MY ARM WITH STEEL
YET MY SOUL UNBROKEN
MY MIGHTY RAGE YOU'LL FEEL

BLOOD IS SPURTING FROM MY SIDE
BERSERKER RAGE I FLY
THOUSANDS OF MEN DIED BY MY HAND
FALLS THE LAST DROP OF SAND

[GODIN:SOLO]

YOU DARE TO FINISH ME OFF
BUT I'LL SMITE THEE LIKE THUNDER
BLOODIED & HALF DEAD
I YIELD TO NONE
BLOOD IS SPURTING FROM MY NECK
BERSERKER RAGE I FLY
THOUSANDS OF MEN I MADE DIE
AND NOW SO SHALL I

[CHORUS]
Track Name: Headless Horseman
A HORSEMAN WHO SEARCHES FOR HEADS,
MERCERNARY, WHO PAINTS THE GROUND RED
RAISE HIS SWORD WITHOUT ANY WORDS SAID
HIS LIFE JUST SLIPS AWAY
ABULLET SOUNDS HIS HORSE SHOT DOWN
A GIANT BLACK STEED LAID TO THE GROUND
HEAR THEIR CRIES WITHOUT ANY SOUND
ITS JUST TOO LATE

TWO WOMEN SIMPLY HOLD THE FATE OF HIS LIFE
HIS JOURNEY ENDED
WITH A SINGLE SWING FROM HIS SWORD

HE HOLDS THE SIGN
HOLIER THAN TIME
THE SACRED SKULL
OF THE HEADLESS HORSEMAN

THE POWERS IN YOUR HANDS
CALL HIM ON DEMAND
SACRED SKULL
OF THE HEADLESS HORSEMAN

[GODIN: SOLO]

BUT NOW THE WIND IT BLOWS COLD
THEY SAY YOU'LL SEE HIS SMOKE
HE'S ON ANOTHERS TRAIL CAUSE
I CAN SEE THE RAIN

WHICH PATH THEY HAD TAKEN
THE SOULS THEY HAVE AWAKEN
THEIR NAMES FORSAKEN
GONNA FEEL HIS PAIN

[GODIN: SOLO]

THE MOON GLOWS HIGH IN THE SKY
ON A BLACK STEED HE RIDES
WON'T LEAVE TILL HE GETS WHAT HE FINDS
WITH BLOODY HANDS

IN THE SILENCE HE SCREAMS
FROM LIFE INTO YOUR DREAMS
SWIFT LIKE A BREEZE HE'S THE FEAR OF MAN

GOT HIM WALKIN'
GOT HIM SCREAMIN'

[CHORUS]
[GODIN:SOLO]

NOW HE HAS WHAT HE NEEDS
TO FILL THE PASSION OBSCENE
NO MORE WILL THE COUNT TELL
HIS REIGN SHALL END

HIS SWORD GROWS DULL
HE HAS HIS SKULL
LIFE'S ANOTHER TALE FOR THE
HEADLESS HORSEMAN

GOT EM WALKIN'
GOT HIME SCREAMIN'

[CHORUS]
[GODIN:SOLO]
