about

The Ulfhednar, Wolf Warriors of Odin, better known as berserkers, fought and died with the hope of reaching Valhalla.

lyrics

Come my child, the forest echoes with silence
Hear the cry, a warning riders are coming

A thousand hoof beats crack the sky
A host of shadows fill the night
Arise now Odin’s dogs of war
The wild hunt will cleanse this world

A flight of birds come to blot the moon
Their beating wings turning to the clash of spears
The cry of wolves, fall beneath the trees


Come now child, these omens show you the truth
Read the runes, a warning written in blood

A thousand hoof beats crack the sky
A host of shadows fill the night
Arise now Odin’s dogs of war
The Wild Hunt will burn this world

A house aflame, trod beneath fell hooves
Allfather’s path, since before the time of man
Eight pounding hooves, sing across the sky
The sounds of war, rise with each unending stride

Fear not child the weave of your own destiny
Death awaits the coward equally
Fear not child the weave of your own destiny
Die with honor, let Allfather see

From the barrow, bear the sword of warriors past
Hold your blade high, raise your shield arm to the sky
Call to Odin, sing the war song, bless the dead
They have journeyed, you may follow, warriors fate

Hear now the sound, coursing through your veins
The baying hounds, mixing with the screams of men
The blood like rain, running down your blade
The sound of hooves, driving you to charge again

Come now child, the battle leaves you behind
Einherjar, arise and follow your line

A thousand hoof beats crack the sky
A host of shadows fill the night
Arise now Odin’s dogs of war
The wild hunt will burn this world

The sound of hooves, and of wings arrive
A golden host, lightning chases 'cross the sky
The sound of spears, and a mourning cry
Shaking the ground upon which the fallen lie

The golden doors will be opened wide
Arise a man, as Einherjar step inside
The warrior’s hall, Odin’s host resides
Till Ragnarok, destined there again to die
