Latter gjaller gjennom natten
Aftensstjernen lyser over Midgard
Ondskap sammenfiltres i mørket
det ordnede kosmos’ fiende trer frem
Loke, Fårbautes sønn.. Løgners far
Født av jord, ubundet av lover
Takk gråter el tange tarer
for tapet av solens vakre sønn
Men heppen i skogen underkaster seg
for tilbakevinning av Fosterbrors gunst

Loke, Fårbautes sønn.. Løgners far
Født av jord, ubundet av lover
Laksen glir i fossen
Ornen seiler med vind
Hammer knaker I jotunskalle
Jordens indre spruter ild

Latter, svik, skjønnhet og forakt
Æsers beskytter og jotners fører

English translation:

Laughter echoes through the night
The evening star shines over Midgard
Evil mingles in the dark
The organised cosmos' enemy comes forth

Loke, the son of F†rbaute.. father of lies
Born of earth, unbound by laws

Takk weeps no heavy tears
For the loss of the sun's handsome son
But the mare in the woods submits
For the regaining of Foster brother's favour

Loke, the son of F†rbaute.. father of lies
Born of earth, unbound by laws

The salmon glides in the waterfall
The eagle sails with the wind
Hammer groans in Jotun scull
The under ground spurts fire

Laughter, deceit, beauty and contempt
The old norse god's protector and leader of Jotuns

    General Commenti love enslaved... most black metal lyrics do it for me its just storytelling, fantasy, its takes you away from the rigeurs of everyday life and this song is the best example IMO...
