Post vocals please

This is a great song. Love the black vocals and melody. I'm trying to teach myself Old Norse, being Asatru (Norse Pagan), so I would really appreciate it if you would post the vocals in Old Norse so that I could test my translating skills. Thank you, you're amazing.

Swedish Metal Rule

A song in old Norse. That says all about true Viking/Black Metal.
You´re better than most of the bands that I ever heard.

Keep up your work and release a record soon !!!!!!

All hail the warriors of Thor and Odin !!!!

Hej igjen!

It was VERY difficult to translate Swedish/English to Old Norse, especially since Swedish does not directly descend from it, but rather the Eastern dialect -- making it more inteligable to Old Gutnish or the Gothic language spoken at that time (Crimean Gothic is also somewhat intelligable).

It took alot of research and alot of frustration to simply get the word order and even the pronunciation right. Old Norse uses the "th" sound. In Swedish, we don't use this -- or not at all often, anyway. During the evoltuon of our North Germanic language into the Middle Ages, we experienced a few changes in our 'tunga', for instance, we dropped the "thorn" and the "edth" letters from our alphabets, as well as the syllables they made, and ultimately replaced them with 't' and 'd', and exchanged their pronunciations with those of the letters 't' and 'd'.

Ah, well. I must be boring. :P

Thanks for the support, man! New stuff coming soon! Promise! D:
