... Bygden står stilla, en stjärklar natt ...
... En eld fjärran skådas, ty de närmar sig ...

Fram rider trollens kung
med vargbroder ut på jakt
Allt levade flyr, fä och frände
blodet skall dranka denna ensliga trakt

Utav mörket i sin evika sal,
han ger sig ut, en törst att släcka
Gär skyndas de fram på krokiga ben,
Flera liv att tas, hundra ben att knäcka

Trollherrens sällskap river sig fram,
genom dyster skog och fruset fjäll
De dräper vad de ser och finner allt gömt,
huvudens snart pryder deras heliga häll

Så står trackten dyster och mörk,
solen stiger inget liv att skåda
Underjorden firas en lyckad jakt,
sedan igen sekler tystnad råda ...

(ve dig människa du inkärktar här,
snart trollen dig till hällen bär ...)

    insert line breaks
    all over the place?

    General CommentExcellent. In that case:

    "... The village is quiet, a starlit night ...
    ... A distant fire is seen, for they are drawing near ...

    The king of trolls rides forth
    To hunt with his wolven brother
    Everything living flees, friend and foe
    Blood will soak these secluded grounds

    From the darkness in his eternal halls
    He goes out with a thirst to quench
    They are hurried forth on crooked legs
    Many lives to take, a hundred bones to break

    The party of the trollmaster tear their way
    through gloomy forests and frozen mountains
    They slay what they see and find everything hidden
    Heads will soon adorn their holy rock (hm)

    The area is gloomy and dark
    The sun rises, there is no life left
    Below ground they celebrate a successful hunt
    Once again silence reigns for centuries

    (Woe betide you, human, you are trespassing
    The trolls will soon drag you to the rock ...)"

    It could also mean "hearth", instead of "rock", but I dunno.

    General CommentThe first two lines are not singed (not in the beggining, that is sure), :P... is only a great example of Yoik, made, I guess, by Järvelä, the singer of Korpiklaani, :D
