I vinden viskar dödens stämma
Onda stjärnor på himmelen stirra
Bland furor eka ett isande skrik
Urskogens klor i nattlig sky
Ur rymdens svarta djup
Ur rymdens svarta djup

Fem fot svart stål han i sina nävar klämmer
En svart skugga från jordens djupaste hål
Långa öron och knivskarpa horn
Under brynen glöda två illröda kol…

Nu lyfts värdet mot himmelens rand
Syndastålet nu frysa luft till is
Nu livlösa förbli var man, var kvinna
Domen falla och tystnad härska
O, rymdens svarta djup
O, rymdens svarta djup

    General Comment"Dark Depths

    In wind whisper the tones of death
    Evil stars in the sky now stare
    Beneath the trees echoes the freezing cry
    Ancient forest's claws in the night sky
    From vast dark depths...
    From vast dark depths...

    Black five foot blade clenches in his fist
    Dark shade from the deepest hall of earth
    Long ears and razorsharp horns
    Under helmet glows two scarlet coals...

    Now rises darkness towards heaven's boundaries
    Lustful steel now freezes winds to ice
    Thus lifeless remains man and woman
    Judgement falls and silence reigns
    Oh, wide dark depths...
    Oh, wide dark depths..."

    In the concept of the entire album and the main theme of all of finntroll's songs, I guess this song is about the rise of a troll warrior (or king) (but it also be a demon, but I don't think so, because it isn't finntroll's thing XD).. The rise of this *thing* from the depths of our earth towards heaven to call judgement upon us and make an end to the the chrsitian plague :D - probably..
