Track Name: Fire Burns the Cimmerian Nightsky
In the land of darkness and deep night, the barbarian hordes clash against foreign invaders. Men and steel collide, weapons bite into flesh, as Crom sends doom and revenge down upon the battlefield. Flames engulf the night sky, and the stench of death and bloody corpses gleam beneath the fading stars.
Track Name: The Chants of Old Heroes
The warrior grips his sword in his hand, striking down the many foes who encircle him. His fury and valor burn in his heart, as the chants of his fallen brothers, and his fathers sing in his ear. Thunder booms across the sky, as the warrior falls and takes his final breath. The Valkyries carry him across the rainbow bridge, to the hall of the valiant dead. Now the scalds shall sing to his sons and his kin of his glorious death.
