Track Name: Amidst the Winterplague
Blackened skies contaminate the horizon
Winters unending will enthrall the land
Pounding hooves of the demon riders
Roar, like thunder, in the heart of man

Frozen winds approach from the north
Consuming all life in the fog of mist-home
Thickening blizzards obscuring all vision
All hope is lost, consigned to woe

Grim edifices arise from frigid lakebeds
Coldly towering over desolated tundra

The wintermoon eclipses the dying sun
Beckoning the fall of eternal night
Solar winds ignite this blackened sky
Revealing a sea of ruinous ice

From crashing waves emerges the world serpent
Harbinger of winterplague; corrupter of skies
To defeat the protector of man
Summoning forth frost-bound end-times

Frozen winds approach from the north
Consuming all life in the fog of mist-home
Thickening blizzards obscuring all vision
All hope is lost, consigned to woe

"skeggöld, skálmöld,
skildir ro klofnir,
vindöld, vargöld
áðr veröld steypisk,
mun engi maðr
öðrum þyrma" (Völuspá, 45)
Track Name: Niflheimr (Realms of the Dead)
"reið hann niðr þaðan
niflheljar til"
Track Name: Vetr Harmr
On this dark winter night
I march toward my grave
With each dying tree that I pass
My life fades

Through the dark, ancient winter trees
The moon shines upon me

I know that I will not make it home
In this forest I will die alone
