naughtynubies I love this album, especially as a part of the evolution of such an amazing artist. It also came with the booklet signed by Dis Pater in gold ink, and beautiful etchings on the cd ;D Favorite track: Journey Across the Sea.

Track Name: Journey Across the Sea
From afar these strangers came
With fire in their eyes
Their swords were jewelled, their shields adorned
Their tongues all spoke of lies

They burnt our shrines, they killed our gods
They took all that we owned
They raped our wives and killed the men
Some hung and some were stoned

But from this day I will return a man so strong and brave
I’ll claim the land, my stolen home
Their blood my father’s gave
With an army a million strong, I’ll march for their glory
And they shall fear my name before I sail across the sea

I am the storms, that crash into the sea
I am the serpent who lurks in waters deep
Eternal vengeance, fuels my inner soul
A reclamation of all that you stole

I am the vermin, that bite at your feet
I am the howling, unsettling your sleep
And in your visions, you see the flames
Death is returning, and wrath is his name
Track Name: Spirit of the Winter Mountain
Upon the mountain, within the fog
Lies a spirit who sings a song
He lures men up his wicked peaks

Then casts his wrath for the blood he seeks
The pride of men, he takes away
When he hungers, his song will lead them astray

Oh come to me, I can help
Come and take my hand
I’m the mountain’s only son, born from deep within

From a distance I see amongst the trees, his pale face
I crave the blood and the flesh
His final breath I can already taste

Oh come to me, I can help
Come take my hand
I’m the mountain’s only son, born from deep within

I see you’ve come far away and are alone again
Oh come to me, lonesome man
You’re not king of this mountain
Track Name: Forest Mourners
Under the moonlight, in winter’s realm
The trees are silent, the wolves as well
Only the footsteps of men are heard
As they carry the wooden hearse

Mournful cries, flowing tears
Into the forest, they disappear

And from the trees, a funeral dirge
The forest mourners are forever heard

Under the evening fog the torches burn
The flaming flickers, light the twists and turns
And when they reach the sacred grove
The air gets colder, death consumes the shadows
