Arcturus Song Lyrics

Arcturus – Moonshine Delirium

Arcturus is a Norwegian avant-garde black metal band formed in 1991. Their name, which means “Bear Guardian”, references the Behenian fixed star Arcturus.

Third night in flight
My body says no but my mind says go
Moonshine delirium what is that lurking behind the curtain
There at an instant then gone with a flash
Defeating all resistance something there I can not grasp
There is no tomorrow gone beyond sorrow under a sheltering mask
Hail to you thousand faced all trapped in the haze
Dandies bandits tramps and champs
Beloved freaks and cheeky sneaks
Homeless heroes without dineros
Vampire-fools and exotic ghouls
Mongoshitfacedtabletwisters salut!
And open chure


I know there exists a good quality live video of this track, but sadly I couldn’t locate one on the web, so no live video at the moment.

Ancient Song Lyrics

Ancient – I Madman

Ancient is a Norwegian black metal band from Bergen, formed in 1992.

Walking in the dark
Not caring where it leads
It begins to rain
Drenched in cold (I madman)
I see a girl
The feeling of alone
I am drawn to her
She is shy and I become alive
The game
She smiles and my blood begins to flow

I madman

“Take my hand and walk with me
Be forewarned I am mad
Laughing now she follows me
What a bad day she has had
I, a madman walking in the rain
A rotting corpse that feels no pain
Upset and angry for feeling so alone
I wish to find a pretty face
And make her all my own”

Pretty pretty silent one
Standing all alone
Come a little closer
So I can hear your moan
Pretty pretty silly girl
I take your hand in mine
I promise that everything
Is just like wine

A bit afraid but still so brave
I madman

I think I love you
I madman”

A crazy violent stormy man
Hidden in a cloak
Walks now with a woman
Whose throat he’d like to choke
I madman who holds your hand
Like the calming of the sea
Watch me as your life unfolds
And your soul is given to me”

“A crazy violent stormy man
Hidden in a cloak
Walks now with a woman
Whose throat he’d like to choke
I madman who holds your hand
Like the calming of the sea
Watch me as your life unfolds
And your soul is given to me”

Many times I’ll see your face
Damn you madman
You haunt me every night
Without a trace
I madman go to happy place

Promises, charm and smiling eyes
I madman
Always kind and always nice
I think you love my grace

I madman
I madman
I mad

“The game is dead you want me
Remember I am mad
Question after question
Takes her by surprise
I tell her I am wicked
And she is not wise
So take the hand of a stranger
You not a madman”

Silly silly little girl
I am having so much fun
So deep you cannot run
Pretty pretty stupid girl
Stay

There is something I will teach you
Before you go away

“A crazy violent stormy man
Hidden in a cloak
Lies now on the corpse
Of a girl he used to choke
Laughing as he looks at her
With a smile on his face
Grins while he talks to her
And heads off to the special place”

“A crazy violent stormy man
Hidden in a cloak
Lies now on the corpse
Of a girl he used to choke
Laughing as he looks at her
With a smile on his face
Grins while he talks to her
And heads off to the special place”

I madman

Borknagar Song Lyrics

Borknagar – Voices

Borknagar is a progressive black metal band from Bergen, Norway, founded in 1995 by Øystein Garnes Brun.

There are voices in the air
There are voices in the air
They always find me – oh they find me
No matter where I go

There are voices in my head
There are voices in my head
They won’t leave me – never leave me
No matter where I go

There are chains now in the field
There are chains now in the field
There’s no freedom – no freedom
There’s no freedom in the field

There are voices in the air
They always find me in the air
There are voices – oh there are voices
No matter where I go

There are voices in my head
There are voices in my head
They won’t leave me
They won’t leave me
No matter where I go

And there are chains now in the field
Yes there are chains now in the field
So there’s no freedom, no freedom
There’s no freedom in the field

There are voices in the air
There are voices in the air
They always find me oh yes they find me
No matter where I go

I will lay there in the field
Without voices in the air
When I finally draw my last breath
I will lay there in the field

When I finally stop to breathe
When I finally stop to breathe
All the voices, all the voices
Will only linger in the field
Will only linger in the field
Will only linger in the field


Sorry – No live version so far that I know of.

Dimmu Borgir Song Lyrics

Dimmu Borgir – Progenies Of The Great Apocalypse

Dimmu Borgir is a Norwegian symphonic black metal band from Oslo, Norway, formed in 1993

The battle raged on and on
Fuelled by the venom of hatred for man
Consistently, without the eyes to see
By those who revel in sewer equally

We, the prosperity of the future seal
Cloaked by the thunders of the north wind
Born to capture the essence of
The trails of our kind

Zero tolerance must be issued forth
Behind the enemy’s line
So it shall be written
And so it shall be done

[repeat 1st and 2nd verse]

Discover and conceive the secret wealth
And pass it unto your breed
Become your own congregation
Measure the sovereignty of it’s invigoration

We, who not deny the animal of our nature
We, who yearn to preserve our liberation
We, who face darkness in our hearts with a solemn fire
We, who aspire to the truth and pursue it’s strength

Are we not the undisputed prodigy of warfare
Fearing all the mediocrity that they possess
Should we not hunt the bastards down with our might
Reinforce and claim the throne that is rightfully ours

Consider the god we could be without the grace
Once and for all
Diminish the sub principle and leave it’s toxic trace
Once and for all

[Music by Mustis]
[Lyrics by Silenoz]

Song Lyrics Wardruna

Wardruna – Helvegen

Wardruna is a Norwegian music group formed in 2003 by Einar Selvik along with Gaahl and Lindy Fay Hella. They are dedicated to creating musical renditions of Norse cultural and esoteric traditions, and make significant use of Nordic historical and traditional instruments including deer-hide frame drums, flutes, kraviklyr, tagelharpe, mouth harp, goat horn, and lur. Non-traditional instruments and other sources of sound like trees, rocks, water, and torches are also used.

Helvegen
Kven skal synge meg
i daudsvevna slynge meg
når eg helvegen går
og dei spora eg trår
er kalde så kalde, så kalde

Eg songane søkte
Eg songane sende
då den djupaste brunni
gav meg dråpar så ramme
av Valfaders pant

Alt veit eg Odin
kvar du auge løynde

Kven skal synge meg
i daudsvevna slynge meg
når eg helvegen går
og dei spora eg trår
er kalde så kalde

Årle ell i dagars hell
enn veit ravnen om eg fell

Når du ved helgrindi står
og når laus deg må rive
skal eg fylgje deg
yver gjallarbrui med min song

Du blir laust frå banda som bind deg
Du er løyst frå banda som batt deg

“Deyr fé,
deyja frændr,
deyr sjalfr it sama,
en orðstírr
deyr aldregi,
hveim er sér góðan getr.

Deyr fé,
deyja frændr,
deyr sjalfr it sama,
ek veit einn,
at aldrei deyr:
dómr um dauðan hvern.”


The Way To Hel (Helvegen)

“Who shall sing me
Into death-sleep sling me
When I walk the way of Hel
And the tracks I tread
are cold, so cold

I sought the songs
I sent the songs
When the deepest well
Gave me drops so harsh
From Valfaders pledge

I know all Odin, where you (your) eye hid

Early on or in the days end
still knows the raven if I fall

When you stand at the gate of Hel
And when you have to tear free
I will follow you
Past the bridge of Gjöll with my song

You become free from the bonds that bind you!
You are free from the bonds that beat you!”

“Cattle die, kinsmen die,
you yourself soon must die;
but there is one thing that never dies,
the fair fame that one has earned.

“Cattle die, kinsmen die,
you yourself soon must die;
but there is one thing that never dies,
the doom on each one dead.”
