- En ensam skugga nu ridit fram
nu stigit herren av nordens hemliga folk
- han stirrar mot fjällen, han lyfter sin arm
drakblod koka i dennes barm
- kung över folken av troll, hornkrönt står han
härskare utav allt ur mörkrets famn

Vid trollronens fot ny samlas de
de hopas i skock för att alla se
här samlas troll, oknytt ocj rå
de jubla och fira så gott de må
snart hörs ett muller, ett mäktigt dån
så varslas döden av jehovas son
så stiga fram denna hedniska här
och rivfader, härskaren, fram de bär ...

de samlas ur skogens svarta natt,
de vandra från fjäll och sjö ...
Vätte och troll, svartalf och varg,
björnens ande och havets mö ...

    General CommentFirst, let's start off with the translation

    "The Horncrowned King

    A lone shadow has ridden forth
    He has risen, lord of the North's secret people
    He stares at the mountains, he raises his arm
    Dragonblood boils in his chest
    King of the peoples of trolls, horncrowned he stands
    Ruler over all from the darkness

    They gather from the black night of the forest
    They travel from mountain and lake...
    Goblin and troll, blackelf and wolf
    The bear's spirit and maiden of the sea...

    At the trollthrone's foot they now gather
    they flock in a crowd so all can see
    here gather trolls and evil things
    They cheer and celebrate as well as they can
    Soon they hear a rumble, a mighty boom
    So the death of Jehovah's son is heralded
    So this heathen horde advances
    And Rivfader, their Lord, they carry forth... "

    The song basically describes the arrival of the old troll king and the gathering of his arm. His arrival will mean the end of christianity in Scandanavia and the triumph of the old beleif.

    - srry for the double post -

    But i forgot to add something :P

    The fact that the troll king is called "the horncrowned king" means that he is the opposit/alternative version of christ (jehovah's son), since he was "the thorncrowned son".
