Eerily Howling Winds

Eerily howling winds
Hear the wolves cry
Cries of hunger
Cries of hate

The ruler in the forest
Below the red moon
Hiding in shadows
Under the golden forest crown

Eerily howling winds

In the deep darkwoods of norway
They're nowhere to be found
The ancient wolfspirit gathered and howled
We are the true pagans, we shall always be
From our day forward, to eternity

Forward in the forest
The old man laughed and grinned
Bringing forth agony
The red full moon
This is my ode to thee
Ancient ruler of my land

Eerily howling winds
Hear the wolves cry
Cries of hunger
Cries of hate
In the old norwegian moon
I will see their red eyes
And I shall greet them
And listen to their beauty songs

Eerily howling winds


Lyrics in plain text format

Review



You might have noticed this isn't really a new Ancient cd, just a collection of older 'hard-to-get' songs. It include the 'Trolltaar' minicd, the 'Det Glemte Riket' 7" ep, which both aren't very hard to get, and three 'unreleased' songs of which one is one Svartalvheim album, and one is a keyboard instumental. So there's not much new stuff on this cd, but still it's very nice to hear those old songs again.

Rating: 7.5 out of 10
