I en moerk skog med kalde tjern
Et sted hvor Herren av verdens
ild ikke rekker
I det moerkeste i den store
av natten - av tid
Og de samlet seg
og blev doedens hus
Barn av tidens krefter
Bran av den mektiges soenner

Vi staar i en sirkel av svart

    General CommentA nice atmospheric doom type song from Varg, probably my favorite song by him.

    General CommentAn approximate English translation:

    ONE RING TO RULE

    In a dark forest with cold lakes
    Where the master of the world's
    Fire does not go
    In the darkest and greatest
    Of nights and times.
    And they came together
    As the house of the dead.
    The sons of time's power
    The sons of the invincible suns.
    We stand in the black circle.

    The title is obviously a reference to "Lord Of The Rings," of which Varg Vikernes is a self-proclaimed fan. He draws parallels between Sauron and Wotan, and the song is more or less about the latter's ring known as Draupnir and its relation to the Germanic race (the third-to-last and second-to-last lines specifically). This is per Vikernes, mind you.
