Arkona Slavsia, Rus’ (Live)

Arkona owns the rights to my first born child.

Genre: Pagan/Folk Metal

Country of Origin: Russia

This is a very beautifully done live video. The quality of sound and video makes me feel like Arkona is playing in my living room right now (before they eat all my Cheetos and drink all my beer).

I have looked all over the internet for a translation of the Slavsia Rus’ lyrics, but can’t find anything satisfactory. If anyone would like to leave a comment and give me some insight on the meaning, that would be great.

The world Arkona itself is a reference to the last Slavic Pagan city.

    Great Mother Earth, Great Rus!
    Oh, wide expanses of yours.
    As through the endless golden fields,
    Children Dazhdbog came.

    After centuries of jungle,
    Through distant lands,
    Left siblings –
    That Dazhdbog sons.
    Banners threatening uplifting,
    Revive the former Russia!
    The covenant Govern –
    Before the gods I swear!

    Oh, yes, my dear,
    It is night-Svarogovna,
    Hide gray covenants fathers
    From the gate of fierce black eyes
    In the midst of the sacred forests.

    Again, my heart sinking,
    Say a word, breathlessly:
    Hail, Mother dear!
    Hail Russian soul!

    After centuries of jungle,
    Through distant lands,
    Rumor siblings:
    Glory to Russia, my land!

    This is the google translate from the Russian script lyrics, so it is not perfect.
    But at least it gives a good idea what the song is about!
    I love Arkona.

    • Thank you Martijn! That was a big help. I’ve always wondered what she was saying. It was more beautiful than what I could imagine.
