Here to the blaze, I wander
Through this black night, I ponder...
The edge of our mighty swords did clash
Fallen by our axes, helmets smashed

Glory and fame, blood is our name
Souls full of thunder, hearts of steel
Killers of men, a warrior's friend
Sworn to avenge our fallen brothers
To the end

One day too, I may fall
I will enter Odin's hall
I will die, sword in hand
My name and my deeds
Will scorch the land

Glory and fame, blood is our name
Souls full of thunder, hearts of steel
Killers of men, a warrior's friend
Sworn to avenge our fallen brothers

Sons of the gods, today we shall die
Open Valhalla's door
Let the battle begin, with swords in the wind
Hail, gods of war

Sons of Odin we four, by the hammer of Thor
Ride down from the sky
Another is born, another shall fall
This day men will die

Glory and fame, blood is our name
Souls full of thunder, hearts of steel
Killers of men, a warrior's friend
Sworn to avenge our fallen brothers

Sons of the gods, today we shall die
Open Valhalla's door
Let the battle begin, with swords in the wind
Hail, gods of war

"Onward into the heart of the battle fought the sons of Odin. Outnumbered many times, still they fought on. Blood poured forth from their wounds deep into the earth. Vultures waited for the broken shells that once were bodies... But Odin alone would choose the day they would enter Valhalla, and in their hour of need he sent forth unto them the berserker rage. Now gods and men, they rose up from the ground, screaming like wild animals! Such is the gift of absolute power: No blade or weapon could harm them; they killed men and horses alike; and all who stood before them died that day! Hail, gods of war!"
