"Blodhemn" as written by Peerson Ivar Skontorp, Roy Kronheim and Kjetil Grutle....
Du drap min son, hemn eg svergar
Du øydela min veg, og fred med mitt folk
Du sverta mitt namn, dei trudde deg

Du trudde min lagnad var spott og spe
Du trudde eg med mitt banesår døydde
Du trudde eg aldri skulle reisa meg

Du trudde lyset var din ven,
at du av det var komen
Du trudde alle ville lystra deg
og gløyme valfaders gåver

Du gløymde din far sine vise ord
om svik, lagnad og død.
Du gløymde di plikt
som ein kjempande mann
og drap din bror i sveven.

Du trudde tid lækjar sår
at mitt folk skulle tilgje og be.
Du gløymde meg og mi heilage plikt,
eg skal drepa deg i vrede.

Blodhemn eg svergar,
Blodhemn har eg alltid sverga.

English translation: "Vengeance in Blood"

You killed my son, I am swearing revenge
You destroyed my path, and truce with my people
You blackened my name, they believed you

You saw my destiny as mockery
You was me dying with my fatal wound
You thought I would never rise

You thought the light was your friend,
That you sprung from it
You thought everyone would obey your words
And forget the gifts of Valfather.

You forgot your father's wise words
of betrayal, destiny and death
You forgot your duty as a man of strife,
and killed your brother sleeping

You thought time would heal the wounds,
that my people would forgive and pray
You forgot about me and my holy duty
I will kill you with anger

Vengeance in blood I swear
Vengeance in blood I have always sworn
