(Chourus)
We're going down to Yggdrasil,
with scorching blades of fire!
We're going down to Yggdrasil,
to kill the Spineless Liar!

(Pre-bridge-thingy..)
Let the swords sing,
as death we bring!
Let the swords sing,
for your king!

(Bridge)
Gather 'round men, tonight we light the fire!
Gather 'round men, tonight we smite the Spineless Liar!

(Verse 1)
Grab your axe,
spread the dread,
blood by blood,
divulge his head!

(Verse 2)
You went under the skn,
of my very kin!
I'll show you swine,
that you have no spine!

(Verse 3/outro)
My daughter is gone,
my grandchild unborn!
You lit the endless fire,
my sweet Spineless Liar!

Some lyrics in the viking-folk style, me and my cousin was inspired to write today.. We have melody, rhythm and riffs at the moment, but we wanted to get some feedback on the lyrics. It's not put together the way it's written above, as we'll figure out the order of the verses and the chourus later.

Had fun reading Cannis laugh.gif I thought of a funny rythm for it and it made me laught laugh.gif

Anyways, I ain't gonna comment on every verse, because it's only got one thing that I dislike on two places:

divulge his head! (divulge is a strange formal word that I don't feel that it should be part of viking chants)

Gather 'round men, tonight we smite the Spineless Liar! (Smite is a good word but I feel some contrast with singing smite the spineless, just doesn't sound good to me)

Would love to hear an upload of the song Cannis, so I could judge it better smile.gif

Cheers
Filipe

This reminds me alot of the small dwarf dude from the LOTR movies. I can just imagine him singing this laugh.gif.


This was ok. As mentioned above. There are some words in here that break the rhythm up alot.
At some parts it feels more comical then serious ?

Might wanna edit it a little, is most certainly has the potential to be fierce cool.gif
