Hammer High 05:25
The legend is told, from father to son, of the one's who went to the mists To be known far and wide, wield the hammer up high - guide them into the afterlife Now the moment has come, children of Thor - be counted for whom you are Blood, fire death - feel the dragon's cold breath - go boldly into the night. As it calls my name And it touches my soul Come sun and moon As I wield the hammer way up high Hammer up high Hold the hammer up high Blood red sun it now dawns upon foreign lands where my father went ashore To seek his new fortune in this new place, where crops grow to the stars But the gods do not see what their eyes cannot know, abandoned condemned to die O where hast thou went? 'Fore the gods I knelt. In Valhalla, I found you not. And he calls my name He touches my soul Ride rams of thunder As he wields the hammer way up high Hold the hammer up high Hammer high Hold the hammer up high I ride into the depths To seek the one who was lost Who wields the hammer way up high Hammer high Hold the hammer up high Hammer high

Stormlander 07:36
Where the mountains meet the sky And the ocean splits the night I go to catch my breath To see if I still exist In the ancient storm's eye The warrior sleeps up high Don't wake the one, my friend Don't wake the one, again Jag vandrar ut i stormen Kommer jag hit igen? Jag vandrar ut i stormen Världen ligger bakom mig Jag vandrar ut i stormen Håll nu hårt i vad du har Jag vandrar ut i stormen Natten går den blir till dag In the storm's eye I am complete In the storm's eye I know peace See me I long for home See me I cry for wind See me, a warrior's fiend See me, a storm's eye But out there, there is no hope No song to sooth your heart No touch to calm your mind, To save your soul, you must pay the price Give everything that you have, everything that you know Jag vandrar ut i stormen Kommer jag hit igen? Jag vandrar ut i stormen Världen ligger bakom mig Jag vandrar ut i stormen Håll nu hårt i vad du har Jag vandrar ut i stormen Natten går den blir till dag In the storm's eye I am complete In the storm's eye I know peace In the storm's eye I am complete In the storm's eye I know peace

Ut i de kalla grå vindsvepta höjderna jag vandra från by till by För att finna det bortglömda folket, under stubbe, stock och sten Upp i de karga och fördömda bergen, där fann jag en port så blek Med tynade fagra sagor, som tiden har glömt att ge Ut i svartalfsmedjans dunkel Jag förlorade min själ De smidde den i svärdet Och så blev jag skuggans träl Med trolldom och visdom, med urgamla ord, jag fann den sjunde nyckeln Jag öppnade porten, in i mörkret jag vandrar, ned för salar av kargaste sten Men där i lågornas skugga, där står dom som jag sökt Dom virar kedjor omkring mig, hur kunde jag haft så fel? Ut i svartalfsmedjans dunkel Jag förlorade min själ De smidde den i svärdet Och så blev jag skuggans träl Ut i svartalfsmedjan Jag förlorade min själ De smidde den i svärdet Och så blev jag skuggans träl Uti svartalfsmedjan Jag blev ett med sagans kraft De skrev mitt namn i boken Kom ihåg den tid vi haft

I stand upon the shores where once I called my home The waves are swallowed by the ice Two stars alight no more their song will fail to sing I wield the spear-head in my hand Chains are broken, the wolves cry for blood The oceans clash for a final time As the gods they... Burn I begin the second chapter As you burn Your time has come to an end Let it burn The world wont be the same As you burn Cometh the new age! The sound was heard in every hall from north to east The world tree trembles by its roots The ship is cast forth from the lands of nevermore I am the last one of my kind Giants cometh, chaos and destruction Under a traitors black banner As you.. Burn I begin the second chapter As you burn Your time has come to an end Let it burn The world wont be the same As you burn Cometh the new age! Its not over Death is come for everyone Shields are broken one by one Tearing up this humankind No one left but you and I Gaints draw the sword of flame Hammerheart you fought in vain Serpent venom everywhere One-Eyed man is dead I fear Now you know how the world will end Arise from the waves, world of desperate murmurs Black wings uncovered by the sun As the gods they... Burn The world is born again As you burn Your time has come to an end As you burn The world wont be the same As you burn Cometh the new age!

Stormlander is the first long-form effort of Cirkeln, now reissued with brand new artwork, out now on tape and CD and vinyl in the works.

Hold the hammer high!
