Månen skiner över nordens land, skogen står i sin mörka prakt
Aldhissla vandrar över fjäll och slätt
Evigt han vakar, betraktar, denna tysta och nattliga trakt
Han sitter i sin grotta, bevakar sin gyllene skatt
Sitt hem fyllt av mörker och is
Detta underjordiska land, riket av evig natt

Mästaren Aldhissla, Trollet som allting hör
Mästaren Aldhissla, Ondska som aldrig dör

Ingen man här satt sin fot, inga människobarn födas här
Tomhet och tystnad härska
Inget spår, inget tecken av honom som korset bär
Aldhissla stänga eg ögon, han aldrig sova
Ingen komma hit med lögner i mun
Vacker och mäktig, fet är nordens natt utan jehova

Mästaren Aldhissla, Trollet som allting hör
Mästaren Aldhissla, Ondska som aldrig dör

Ensameheten, tecken av kraft
Att allt se, tekcen av kraft
Evigt liv, tecken av kraft ...

    General Commentthey're Finnish themselves, but they sing in Swedish: the Finnish people, language and mythology is Finno-Ugric, and has little traditional connexion to the trolls of the Germanic legends. Therefore Finntroll sing in the germanic language of Swedish, because, as they put it, "it sounds so damn trollish".

    General CommentAldhissla (translation by Ville Kuoppamäki aka. G1)

    Aldhissla
    The moon shines over the North, the forest stands in its dark glory
    Aldhissla wanders over mountain and plain
    Eternally he guards, watches, this silent and nightly region
    He sits in his cave and guards his golden treasure
    His home filled with darkness and ice
    This subterranean land, the realm of eternal night

    Master Aldhissla, the troll that hears all
    Master Aldhissla, evil that never dies

    No man has set his foot, no human children are born here
    Emptiness and silence reign
    No trace, no sign of the one who carries the cross
    Aldhissla doesn't close his eyes, he never sleeps
    Noone comes here with lies in their mouths
    Glorious and powerful is the Northern night without Jehova

    Master Aldhissla, the troll that hears all
    Master Aldhissla, evil that never dies

    Loneliness, a sign of power
    To see all, a sign of power
    Eternal life, a sign of power...


    Got this off the finntroll.com forums.
