Bathory – Shores In Flames (Full Song)
Country of origin: Sweden
Genre: Viking/Black Metal
Lyrical Themes: (Earlier Bathory) Satanism, Evil – (Later Bathory) Vikings/Paganism
An appropriate song for the end of winter. This song beckons us to set sail at the end of winter, in pursuit of treasure and battle on other shores.
Mother winter leaves our land
And opens wide the seas
The lukewarm breeze does beckon me
As it whispers through the trees
It says: Set your sails
And let me take your ship to foreign shores
Take farewell of those near you
And your land of the North!
This is a pretty long, but powerful song, filled with emotion and that nostalgia for the old Norse ways which Bathory captures so perfectly.
