The creak and moan of the earth The ground trembles underneath The smell of rain upon the earth The trees sway in gentle breeze The mist fades as sun rides high Moon chased below the trees by hati The forest wakes from its sleep To devour the weak and the sheep The trees growing tall and strong Mighty Yggdrasil I sing your song The gods watching us from their halls Down this sacred path we must walk...
Raise your horns and sing a song for all of your brothers who are dead and gone feast like a king for those in valhalla who gave their lives on the field of battle Feast for the slain raise a stone to their memory grab your horn and drink some mead and feast for the slain Valkyries ride to take the dead to valhalla to feast with Odin All our brothers there golden horns of mead they fight to the death then rise again Blood has spilled for ages in the name of mighty odin so grab your horn and drink some mead and raise a stone to their memory This song is dedicated to all the warriors out there who give their lives for glory I raise my horn to you and I will feast in your memory
Drink around the fire With your horn of mead Feast among warriors Songs of old we sing We raise our horns up high To the warriors of old We sing their story, as we drink from horns of gold Among the runes Let our tale be told Drink to our brothers As the funeral fires roar *********************** I raise my horn to you my brothers ceased to be your blood runs deep in the earth to feed yggdrasil feel the tremble of the earth as the hammer cracks the sky I'll raise a stone for you your memory will never die ************************
follow me across this marshland I see a light burning in a tavern across the way grab a beer, some mead, and a whiskey gather around for this story i shall tell There was a man he loved his whores tits and drink was all he wanted in his life until one day, he got really shitfaced and fucked a woman which he regretted the next day When he was done he looked in her eyes soberness taking hold he realized what he'd done her warted face, saggy tits, and hemroids he fucked a troll in the ass and ate her twat
Pagan Forest 04:25
With oaken hearts veins buried deep coursing through the earth spring of life from which they drink an ancient song across the land I hear the mighty cry as tears from the heavens fall I walk this journey through the mist of the pagan forest Frozen winds at my back as moonlight guides my path Blood on the earth nourish the ground upon which they fall the smell of rot befalls us all hvelgamir branch and flow bring back life again as I make this forest my tomb Rot creeps into my life existence fading fast into the forest I go smell of death embracing me thick mist I cannot see the forest awaits with open arms


This is an EP that has a compilation of songs that didn't fit well within any other album. The songs are also songs that "weren't good enough (cough cough)" to go on any other albums. They either didn't fit my personal criteria or I just didn't like them when they were completed or they were written while I was just messing around with the music. Some of the songs were written a few years ago and some recently. They were released on this EP because someone out there will enjoy them. Hopefully you!!!

But honestly, they are all just a backlog of songs that didn't fit well with the concept albums released and currently unreleased.
