Track Name: Legacy in Flames
Tails between your legs and arrows in your backs can you hear
Your mewling men as their skulls are cracked
Smell your kinfolk cooking high atop our walls and know their
Heads adorn our moonlit halls tonight

Our gods look down in wrath
Upon your traitor’s sin
Their lupine gifts
Make our change begin

We hunt our prey with our last breath
By the sanguine moon through realms of death
So curse our name, you’ll be slaughtered all the same
Your legacy in flames

Through the trees we fly over roots and remains led by the
Crimson trails from your gushing veins
Try to flee, for mercy cry to deafened ears beyond the skies
We’ve yearned so long to feel you bleed and die

Your feeble siege was doomed
The day you raised your swords
We are your ruin
Your overlords

We hunt our prey with our last breath
By the sanguine moon through realms of death
So curse our name, you’ll be slaughtered all the same
Your legacy in flames
Track Name: The Wolf's Head
Awakened by the creaking trees and spores glistening in the moonlight

I come for thee
Cosmic behemoth
Compass tuned to the earth and stars

By wretched fate
Stalwart goliath
Our mortal coils now intertwined

A flash of the blade
From limb to heart I cast my aim
Down seven halls
Infinite ways

Accompanied by the sneaking dawn and wisps in the wake of the twilight

Onward I trek
Fifteen have fallen
My waning soul I pin on you

From the storms of hell
I will bring her back
Plucked from the jaws of Leviathan

A flash of the blade
From limb to heart I cast my aim
Down seven halls
Infinite ways
Consciousness fades
From lung to soul my hand is stayed
Through hardened veins
Unhallowed fane
Track Name: Silenced by the Northern Winds
The woods of ancient Kjellangor call for the spilling of blood
The fires of my kinsmen glow from the mountains
Your seed will find no purchase here, your bravery turn to rot
All of your treacherous words, all for naught

We stalk the mists
Blades in our hands
We are her brood
She is our land

These roots are strong
With unknown ends
Our hearts won’t falter
Our knees won’t bend
To your cursed shores
We will send
Your usurper tongues
Silenced by the Northern winds

A flame you cannot hope to quench roars beneath the ice
On misty heights sits a hatred ever watchful
As surely as if they had sunk, your warships have found death
It draws closer with each step, with each breath

We are the fury
Teeth of the void
Law of the lawless
Etched in bone
Unwithered, unweathered
We loom eternal
Sons of the birthless
Cold as stone

We’ll fall upon you with the night as you idle in your beds
We’ll take your women from your sides, then we’ll take your heads
Through the roar of flames and cries of babes hear the glory of Drathna sung
As your pious flesh is ripped and torn, from ancient branches hung

These roots are strong
With unknown ends
Our hearts won’t falter
Our knees won’t bend
To your cursed shores
We will send
Your usurper tongues
Silenced by the Northern winds
Track Name: Huntsman (Remixed/Remastered)
The bitter taste of righteous blood stains the oaken lips
Spurs the vernal bones
Of primal guardians in service of the savage one
The gruesome hunt-horn drones

Hail! Huntsman!
The forest rides tonight!
Hail! Huntsman!
Rid us of this blight!

Over archaic laughs of sport
The captives plea and wail
Some are dragged underground
To be devoured at the horrid feasts of nameless gods
To be scraps for Drathna’s hounds

Hail! Huntsman!
The forest rides tonight!
Hail! Huntsman!
Rid us of this blight!

And lo! Through the brush there came a sight terrible to behold - the stag god, accompanied by his spidery host. He who is brother to the mountains, warden of the untamed, and butcher of the fearful.

They marched across the Iron Jaw with sword and helm
Seeking fabled woodland doorways to the twilight realms
The proudest of their captains are now hunted like boars
Their banners lie in gory pools upon the forest floor
