Wardruna – Helvegen (Norse Folk Project With Ex-Gorgoroth Members)


Singing you into the death-sleep

Wardrunna is a project that was put together by the former members of Gorgoroth. Their focus is on Norse Paganism, spiritualism and the runes.

Lyrics: 

Hvem skal synge meg—————Who shall sing me
i daudsvevna slynge meg——-into the death-sleep sling me
når eg på Helvegen går—When I walk on the Path of Death
og dei spora eg trår er kalda, så kalda—-and the tracks I tread are cold, so cold

Eg songane søkte——-I sought the songs
Eg songane sende——————I sent the songs
då den djupaste brunni——when the deepest well
gav meg dråper så ramme—–gave me the drops so touched
av Valfaders pant——-of Death-fathers wager

Alt veit eg, Odin———–I know it all, Odin
var du gjømde ditt auge———where you hid your eye

Hvem skal synge meg——————Who shall sing me
i daudsvevna slynge meg———-into the death-sleep sling me
når eg på Helvegen går——When I walk on the Path of Death
og dei spora eg trår er kalda, så kalda—-and the tracks I tread are cold, so cold

Årle ell i dagars hell———-early in the days end
enn veit ravnen om eg fell———–still the raven knows if I fall

Når du ved Helgrindi står ———When you stand by the Gate of Death
og når du laus deg må riva——-And you have to tear free
skal eg fylgje deg————–I shall follow you
over Gjallarbrua med min song——–across the Resounding Bridge with my song

Du blir løyst frå banda som bind deg!——–You will be free from the bonds that bind you!
Du er løyst frå banda som batt deg!——–You are free from the bonds that bound that you!

Quote from Håvamål — The High Ones Speech, Poetic Edda

(This was included with the video on youtube)

Døyr fe, døyr frender—————-Cattle die, kinsmen die
Døyr sjølv det sama————–You yourself will also die
men ordet om deg aldreg døyr———but the word about you will never die
vinn du et gjetord gjevt————–if you win a good reputation
