overforlatt og dunkel jord

og bra for fedre som har seiret

norskehavets skumrings fjord

Reisen gjennom dimmen er grå

for meg er den et skall av forfars liv

blesne blekne blåner fjell

inn i en gråvendt natt

jeg reiser over bleknede blåners fjell

og her i mørket er jeg forlatt

Snart har snø tynget hver en grend

snart har kong vinter beseiret jord

her hvor en gang de gamle falt i marken

for å legge den øde øy

og gjøre den ren

Over bleknede blåners fjell

jeg drar i dens dunkle mørkmanns ord

over land hvor fedres kamp har seiret

hvor vikingsverd satte tydelig spor

    English translation from darklyrics.com:

    Over Fading Blue-Horizon Until Judgement Day]

    Long in length the storm's blast wind Strikes tidewaters' ?? Strikes ocean over a treasure Has quickly all forest-ponds frozen And the snow covers a mountaintop Soldier strong he was Who sat unafraid in old days Wanders to death-island chasm after his pure honourable conflict Faded blue-horizon's land Deserted and black earth And good for forefathers who have ruled The Norwegian ocean's dusk's fjord The trip through dusk is grey For me is it a shell of forefathers' lives Fade blue mountains on the horizon Into a turned-grey night Travel over fading blue-horizon's mountains And here in darkness I am deserted Quickly has snow oppressed every bough Quickly has king winter conquered earth Here where once the old fell in the field in battle In order to lay the island to waste And make it clean Over fading blue-horizon's mountain Travel in its dark dark-man's word Over land where forefathers' battle has conquered Where Viking-sword sat plainly in sight

    this is just a sample on how good they used to be. Dimmu Borgir....what the hell happened?!?!?

    I really prefer the Dimmu Borgir of old that sang about norse mythology and arthurian legends instead of all the 'hail satan' crap that every single metal band sings about.

Silent Planet
I think much like another song “Anti-Matter” (that's also on the same album as this song), this one is also is inspired by a horrifying van crash the band experienced on Nov 3, 2022. This, much like the other track, sounds like it's an extension what they shared while huddled in the wreckage, as they helped frontman Garrett Russell stem the bleeding from his head wound while he was under the temporary effects of a concussion. The track speaks of where the mind goes at the most desperate & desolate of times, when it just about slips away to all but disconnect itself, and the aftermath.

Mountain Song
Jane's Addiction
Jane's Addiction vocalist Perry Farrell gives Adam Reader some heartfelt insight into Jane’s Addiction's hard rock manifesto "Mountain Song", which was the second single from their revolutionary album Nothing's Shocking. Mountain song was first recorded in 1986 and appeared on the soundtrack to the film Dudes starring Jon Cryer. The version on Nothing's Shocking was re-recorded in 1988. "'Mountain Song' was actually about... I hate to say it but... drugs. Climbing this mountain and getting as high as you can, and then coming down that mountain," reveals Farrell. "What it feels to descend from the mountain top... not easy at all. The ascension is tough but exhilarating. Getting down is... it's a real bummer. Drugs is not for everybody obviously. For me, I wanted to experience the heights, and the lows come along with it." "There's a part - 'Cash in now honey, cash in Miss Smith.' Miss Smith is my Mother; our last name was Smith. Cashing in when she cashed in her life. So... she decided that, to her... at that time, she was desperate. Life wasn't worth it for her, that was her opinion. Some people think, never take your life, and some people find that their life isn't worth living. She was in love with my Dad, and my Dad was not faithful to her, and it broke her heart. She was very desperate and she did something that I know she regrets."

Gentle Hour
Yo La Tengo
This song was originally written by a guy called Peter Gutteridge. He was one of the founders of the "Dunedin Sound" a musical scene in the south of New Zealand in the early 80s. From there it was covered by "The Clean" one of the early bands of that scene (he had originally been a member of in it's early days, writing a couple of their best early songs). The Dunedin sound, and the Clean became popular on american college radio in the mid to late 80s. I guess Yo La Tengo heard that version. Great version of a great song,

Cranberries, The
"Zombie" is about the ethno-political conflict in Ireland. This is obvious if you know anything of the singer (Dolores O'Riordan)'s Irish heritage and understood the "1916" Easter Rising reference. "Another head hangs lowly Child is slowly taken And the violence caused such silence Who are we mistaken - Another mother's breaking Heart is taking over" Laments the Warrington bomb attacks in which two children were fatally injured on March 23rd, 1993. Twelve year old Tim Parry was taken off life support with permission from his mother after five days in the hospital, virtually braindead. "But you see it's not me It's not my family" References how people who are not directly involved with the violence feel about it. They are "zombies" without sympathy who refuse to take action while others suffer.

Sunglasses at Night
Corey Hart
In the 1980s, sunglasses were a common fashion for people who wanted to adopt a "tough guy" persona (note all the cop shows from that era -- Simon & Simon, Miami Vice, etc. -- where the lead characters wore shades). So I think this song is about a guy who wears shades as a way of hiding his insecurity after learning that his girlfriend is cheating on him. He's trying to pretend that he's a "tough guy" to hide the fact that his girlfriend's affair is disturbing him.
