Finally got a new copy of The Sunne in Splendour, on sale even. The old copy got lost before I could read it.
Into battle we ride with Gods by our side
We are strong and not afraid to die
We have an urge to kill and our lust for blood has to be fulfilled
WE´LL FIGHT TILL THE END! And send our enemies straight to Hell!
