viguy The atmosphere this album creates is phenomenal! Many times as I walk my dogs through the forest with this album feeding my earbuds, the forest appears to change, smaller details are apparent, leaves shifting in the wind, the movement of birds through the trees, an Owl sits watching us pass by, one's spirit seems to merge with nature. Favorite track: Naglfar (Waltz of the Dead).

Ymir's Death 04:07
Ár var alda þar er Ýmir bygði, vara sandr né sær né svalar unnir, jörð fannsk æva né upphiminn, gap var ginnunga, en gras hvergi. Ór Ymis holdi var jörð of sköpuð, en ór sveita sær, björg ór beinum, baðmr ór hári, en ór hausi himinn. En ór hans brám gerðu blíð regin Miðgarð manna sonum, en ór hans heila váru þau in harðmóðgu ský öll af sköpuð.
2.
Snýsk Jörmungandr í jötunmóði. Miðgarðsormr. óx sá ormr svá, at hann liggr í miðju hafinu of öll lönd ok bítr í sporð sér.

Hel 03:48
4.
Fenrir, Fenrisúlfr, Hróðvitnir, Vánagandr. Hann grenjar illiliga, ok slefa renn ór munni hans. Þat er á sú, er Ván heitir. Þar liggr hann til ragnarökrs.
5.
Ein sat hon úti, þá er inn aldni kom yggjungr ása ok í augu leit. Veit ek, at ek hekk vindga meiði á nætr allar níu, geiri undaðr ok gefinn Óðni, sjalfr sjalfum mér, á þeim meiði, er manngi veit hvers af rótum renn. Allt veit ek, Óðinn, hvar þú auga falt, í inum mæra Mímisbrunni. Við hleifi mik sældu né við hornigi; nýsta ek niðr, nam ek upp rúnar, æpandi nam, fell ek aftr þaðan.
6.
Því at álfröðull lýsir um alla daga ok þeygi at mínum munum. Í Gymis görðum ek ganga sá mér tíða mey; armar lýstu, en af þaðan allt loft ok lögr. Mær er mér tíðari en manna hveim ungum í árdaga ; ása ok alfa þat vill engi maðr at vit samt séim.
7.
Kjóll ferr austan, koma munu Múspells of lög lýðir, en Loki stýrir; fara fíflmegir með freka allir, þeim er bróðir Býleists í för.
8.
Leika Míms synir, en mjötuðr kyndisk at inu galla Gjallarhorni; hátt blæss Heimdallr, horn er á lofti, mælir Óðinn við Míms höfuð.
9.
Skelfr Yggdrasils askr standandi, ymr it aldna tré, en jötunn losnar; hræðask allir á helvegum áðr Surtar þann sefi of gleypir. Surtr ferr sunnan með sviga lævi, skínn af sverði sól valtíva; grjótbjörg gnata, en gífr rata, troða halir helveg, en himinn klofnar. Þá kemr Hlínar harmr annarr fram, er Óðinn ferr við ulf vega.
10.
11.
Þá kemr inn mæri mögr Hlóðynjar, gengr Óðins sonr við orm vega, drepr af móði Miðgarðs véurr, munu halir allir heimstöð ryðja; gengr fet níu- Fjörgynjar burr neppr- frá naðri níðs ókvíðnum.
