Track Name: The Might of Odin
I raise my axe to the sky
Praise the northern gods
We prepare; Hundred or more For the coming fight

Us the men from Asa Bay Land of Blood on Ice
On we charge into hell
there will be no end

Men around me fall like leaves nothing can be done
still we fight with surtur’s flame
They shall die

I fear nothing , fight 'till death Odin’s might is guarding me
I may die but my soul will live on
Odin’s might is guiding me

With the strength of one thousand men
I crush them with my steel
I see the fear in their eyes
I feel so alive

I’ve been stabbed in the back
It’s a mortal wound
I say farewell without fear
and kill another man

I lay here on this cold wet sand
I know what will become
I have no fears, or regrets
I have lived a long life

I see the Valkyries coming from the sky
Odin’s might has guided me all of my life
I raise to the hall up high, and see my fallen kin
Odin’s might has led me to Valhalla
Track Name: In A Time of Blood and Fire
In a time of blood and fire
Before the break of dawn
Mighty swords were held to the sky
In a land that rules by darkness
Of evil and fire spawned
Damnation now eclipsed the sun

Black horsemen rode along with
Death upon their side
So the scene of death rose the winds
In black blood they shall baptise
And under a black star the demon will rise

In a time of blood and fire
They rode across the lands
In a time of blood and fire
Under wings of yore they shelter

A thousand years have passed now
Oh, so grim and dark
Now men must laude the demon's mark
Servants of unholy powers
In darkness must confide
To the abyss in the darkness they descend

Black horsemen rode along with
Death upon their side
So the scene of death rose the winds
In black blood they shall baptise
And under a black star the demon will rise

In a time of blood and fire
They rode across the lands
In a time of blood and fire
Under wings of yore they shelter

Black horsemen rode along with
Death upon their side
So the scene of death rose the winds
In black blood they shall baptise
And under a black star the demon will rise

In a time of blood and fire
They rode across the lands
In a time of blood and fire
Under wings of yore they shelter
Track Name: Forlorn Desolation
A land which angels dare to tread
I have been left for dead
Forsaken by my god in this land
My pain shall never end

Fallen angels of doom surround me,
Tormenting my soul

Bleak and scorched earth, fill my view
A desolate place for my end.
A figure in the distance
Approaches me

Cold, endless frost covers this ground,
Griping to my very life

Chaos; a portent to my doom as the world seems decayed.
My life has been to the point of this damnation cast upon my soul
Track Name: Asa Land
New day breaks over this land,
The sun from the east
Rises high, illuminates
All of Asa Bay

Men in great numbers call
Up to Odens Hall
Today they sail to strange lands
Oden watch them all

The long ships sail across
The cold blackened sea
Midsummer has passed us by
Odens ravens shall fly

We are with out our men,
The greatest swordsman seen
The chief’s son and I a smith
12 men behind

Our father quest shall bring
Great riches for our homes
Conquest of Greenland
Settling a new land

Ten moons pass, since men have sailed
And Asa is under siege
An attack from the east
A Slavic planned assault

I rally the men which we have left
Hoping to put up fight
Asator fight with us,
Protect our Nordic clan

With mjolnir around my neck
I smash their heads in two
The clash of steel, on this field
Fallen fathers proud

Outnumbered we will be
If they continue towards
Strength of Thor, Might of Oden,
Will guide our steel

The Slavic’s push with countless men,
Determined to take this land
We are down, two to one
But we will never yield

The bastards fall by my blade
By tens in front of me
All father give me strength
Fight till I fall

I charge forward straight into
The eye of the storm
My battle cry freezes men,
Dead in their path

Back they fall to their ships
Running for their lives
I feel the strength of asator
Running through my blood

Many men, were lost today
In a glory fight
We shall see that they recieve
Burials fit for kings

Tonight, we celebrate
A costly victory
Countless, bards will sing
Of attack on Asa Bay
Track Name: Freedom
Scottish men united under one common flag
Fighting for the freedom of this land

Now, arise
Men of Scotland
We shall stand till our freedoms won

Our true king alongside us killing English men
The bastards stand opposed to us at Bannockburn.

We, have been oppressed for far too long,
Now we stand together 'till death

I draw my sword and pierce the skin, straight through the heart
The Scottish steel penetrates that bastard Englishman
The bastards blood covers my blade, it’s a darkened red
I turn around and force it through the head of a man

Now, arise.
Men of Scotland
We shall fight for our freedom

Countless men will fall here, but we shall never fear.
Wallace is in our hearts, we won’t lose this fight.
We must protect our king, from those damn riding men.
Raise our shields up high, to block their spear attacks.

You have bled with Wallace,
Now bleed with me.

I drop the sword and shield, and grab my steel claymore.
Swinging with all my might, I cut men in two.
When they turn and run, our freedom will be won.
The highlands time is now, England will never rule.

You have bled with Wallace,
Now bleed with me.
