The Land Is Silent... Before The Storm !

On the vast fields of snow, the wind is blowing strong
With its frozen cold and relentless touch
it leaves a dead and hollow land of ice

I have seen through the eyes of a wolf
and felt all its pain and loneliness
The beautiful land opened before my eyes
wild as beast I ran into the night

CHORUS:
The Calling Of The Howling Wind
Is Raging In The Realms Of North
Creations Of Ice Rising Mighty Into The Skies
And Treacherous Gods Shall Fall

Watching through the falling snow
there's no sign of life
The fire has gone out in the whirl of time
Behold the face of thunder
the storm is getting near
When the sky calls my name, I have no fear

REPEAT CHORUS

They brought us misfortune, but their honor is about to be crushed
My blood flows cold as stream of the North
We'll never let them take our souls
The calling of the howling winds is raging in the North
Creations of ice, rising mighty into the skies
and treacherous Gods shall fall

Time And Time Again
I Witness The Birth Of A New Born Star
I Climb The Highest Mountain
To Find The Essence Of A New Era

Time And Time Again
I Witness The Birth Of A New Born Star
I Climb The Highest Mountain
To Find The Essence Of A New Era

    General CommentEven better. This song is a lot like The old poem "The Wanderer" and Ensiferum's song "The Wanderer" has nothing to do with the old poem. Confusing, no?

    General CommentI think it's "wild as *the* beast, I ran into the night". I'm definitely hearing a "the" in there.

    God, I love this song. For some reason I keep thinking about lone hero sorts of stories, like the first Dark Tower book or Samurai Jack, when I hear this. The constant descriptions of the cold, desolate environment really evoke such stories in my mind.

    My InterpretationThis song makes me think of the "Gods" of technology that we are enslaved to, and Ensiferum posits a yearning to break those chains by spending a night, a week, a winter, in the cold Northern wilderness. When we forsake our heritage and our land, then those gods have brought us misfortune.

    General CommentEasily Ensiferum's best song. First one I heard.

    For this song, think Kratos in God of War II. The Gods have betrayed this person and he seeks revenge.
