"Into The Storm" as written by and Heri Joensen....
Much may change in the life of a man
Now I will sing of how the war first began
How these dark days of doom became mine
It was the year Nine-Hundred Ninety-Nine

When pagan poets speak of heathen heroes

Holding high the old way
Warriors waging
Into the storm
On wings of dragons
Fame and fortune
Into the storm (x3)

From the old land in the East we had word
Of how the Earl had fallen and then we heard
That he dies he who dare disobey
When this new king imposes the eastern way


When pagan poets speak of heathen heroes

Holding high the old way
Warriors waging
Into the storm
On wings of dragons
Fame and fortune
Into the storm (x3)

A storm has begun by my magic command
And my runes in the sand will deny them land
You may die on your feet or you live on your knees
When the raven is fed time will come for peace


When pagan poets speak of heathen heroes

Holding high the old way
Warriors waging
Into the storm
On wings of dragons
Fame and fortune
Into the storm (x3)

    General CommentThis song is referring to the forced conversion of the Faroes in the year 999 when they came under control of Olaf I Tryggvason, king of Norway. It also mentions his killing of Eirik Bloodaxe's last son (Eirik was the son of Jarl Haakon, whose death let Olaf take power in Norway, and the last of Haakon's line dying prevented others with a strong claim).
