"The Ravens" as written by and Quorthon....
Steadily on jagged wings
Feather black against the burning sky
Spread your wings and ride the wind
Gaze down on me with blackest eyes.

Fly my ravens, fly ahead.
Over the mountains and endless sky
Fly my ravens, fly ahead
Over the mountains over my head.
Let the wind carry you up high.

Fly my ravens, it's time to fly,
And for me maybe to die.

Valley of Death in the land of no return
The moment of glory or death

    General CommentBeutiful song about ravens.
    Ravens are very interesting birds. Raven sympolizes death in many countries. This song is bit diffrent then most of bathorys music. Only beutiful acoustic guitar and clean voice. Sounds really great.

    General CommentKeep in mind that Bathory is famous for innovating viking metal. Ravens are also Odin's birds. He owns two named Thought and Memory and they tell him all that goes on in the 9 worlds.

    General CommentThis is about Hugin and Munin, more or less.
    He doesnt refer to them in this name, but, on the song Gods of Thunder of Wind and of Rain you see "Hugin and Munin, my eyes in the sky" as in Odin's Ravens
