"Annihilation Of Hammerfest" as written by and Johan Soderberg Fredrick Andersson....
All is lost and foreign kings
Rule the northern realms
Hammerfest, the last outpost
Has fallen to unbearded men

Lords of the bloody cross
Deceived or murdered all of true faith
Now the temple of Thor, where Mjolner is kept
Is under siege

They fear the power of Mjolner
The hammer of Thor
And all their efforts to destroy it have failed

From deep within the frozen ground
Comes a rumbling sound
Ravens fly and wild wolves howl
Sending shivers down christians' spines

As if from nowhere
Dark and grim he appears
The warlord of the Gods comes with force
To retrieve The Crusher

The first man died with a gurgling sigh
When his head was crushed
Painful surprise in his eyes
As his life was snuffed

With raw and brutal force
The warlord breaks the temple doors
The weak back off in fear
On the altar it lies, he lifts the hammer high
And before it he swears:

'Allvise Ygg, Maktige Harjafader
Guda av Asars och vaners att
Hor mina ord, nar som jag svar
Att om tusen vintrar ater ta var ratt?

While he speaky his prayer
Mjolner rests in the air
As if holding breath

Frozen by fear
They gathered stand and stare
And what they see is death

A laughing cry fill the shivering night
He lets the hammer strike
A bolt of lightning bright
Rips the darkened sky
Fire of doom, ignite!

    General CommentThis song is about Odin killing Christians who who have besieged a temple of thor where Mjolner, Thor's thunder hammer is kept. I think the title as well as the lyrics might have something to do with their feud with Hammerfall, as a lot of Hammerfall's songs are done from a Christian perspective.

    General CommentActually it's about THOR killing the Christians, not Odin, cause the part when he says:
    `Allvise Ygg, Maktige Harjafader
    Guda av Asars och vaners att
    Hor mina ord, nar som jag svar
    Att om tusen vintrar ater ta var ratt?
    Thor is praying to Odin and telling the thieves that he will still be around 1000 years from now.
