"Asator" as written by and Johan Soderberg Fredrick Andersson....
Thunder rolls across the plains
Thor rides in puring rain
He rides to Jotunheim to fight
Lightning strikes when Mjölner bites

Fire!
Burning in his eyes
Fire!
His rage is pure, see the lightning strike
Fire!
Burning in his eyes
Fire!
His rage is pure, see the lightning strike

Lightning cracks the blackened sky
Hear the thunder chariot ride
All brave men with hearts of war
Ride the path of mighty Thor

Son of thunder, lightning strikes, son of thunder
Son of thunder, Thor arise, son of thunder

Son of Oden
Thunder god
Master of war
Asator

Fire!
Burning in his eyes
Fire!
His rage is pure, see the lightning strike
Fire!
Burning in his eyes
Fire!
His rage is pure, see the lightning strike

    General CommentExcellent song. One of the things about Amon Amarth's music is that, when you know the lyrics, it's just so much better.

    General Comment@ heartbeats_xxx:

    Yes, it refers to the umbrella term for the Pagan gods, the "Æsir". Is is quite common to call a god Asa-something, as for example Asator instead of Thor.

    General CommentAsator should be pronouncec Åsator, (aw-sah-toor), as he does in the song, but it can be difficult to make out.

    General CommentDefinitely about Thor, the thundergod. In norse mythology there are many stories about him fighting giants. That's what is meant by going to Jotunheim(land of the giants) to fight.

    General CommentAsator is Thor, its just another name for him.

    Thor's name in swedish is "Tor", and all the gods in Norse mythology were commonly known as "Asar".
    Basically, its just adding that before his name.

    General CommentExcellent song. Viking Metal for the win. Though, I'm pretty sure some of those lyrics are wrong.

    It should be

    "Fire! His hate is pure, see the lightning strike!"

    Not rage.
