SUMMONING - 2001
"Let The Mortal Heroes Sing Your Fame"
1. A raw power is rising
2. South away
3. In hollow halls beneath the fells
4. Our foes shall fall
5. The mountain king's return
6. Runes of power
7. Ashen gold
Recorded at Nachschatten Studio
Samples taken from the British "Lord of the Rings" broadcast.
2. South Away
Leave the halls and caverns deep
Were the forests wide and dim
Stoops in shadow grey and grim
Float beyond the world of trees
Past the rushes, past the reeds
Past the marshes, weaving weeds
I'm the crowns of the seven kings. I'm the robes of the five wizards.
South away! South away now!
Far away seek the sunlight and the day.
Hail, hail now, king of the mark.
3. In Hollow Halls Beneath The Fells
Far over the misty mountains cold
To dungeons deep and carvens old
We must away ere break of day
To seek the pale enchanted gold
The pines were roaring on the height
The winds were moaning in the night
The fire was read, it flaming spread
The trees like torches blazed with light
The dwarves of yore made mighty spells
While hammers fell like ringing bells
In places deep where dark things sleep
In hollow halls beneath the fells
For ancient kind and elvish lord
There many a gleaming golden hord
They shaped and wrought, and light they caught
To hide in gems on hilt of sword
Sample:1. In the darkness bind them
4. Our Foes Shall Fall
The sword is sharp, the spear is long
The arrow swift, the gate is strong
The heart is bold that looks on gold
The dwarves no more shall suffer wrong
The mountain throne once more is freed
O! Wandering fold, the summons heed
Come haste! Come haste! Across the waste
The king of friend and kin has need.
Now call we over mountains cold
Come back unto the caverns old
Here at the gates the king awaits
His hands are rich with gems and gold
The king is come unto his hall
Under the mountain dark and tall
The worm of dread is slain and dead
And ever so our foes shall fall
5. The Mountains King's Return
The king beneath the mountains
The king of carven stone
The lord of silver fountains
Shall come into his own!
His crown shall be upholden
His harp shall be restrung
His halls shall echo golden
To songs of yore resung
The woods shall wave on mountains
And grass beneath the sun
His wealth shall flow in fountains
And rivers golden run
The streams shall run in gladness
The lakes shall shine and burn
All sorrow fail and sadness
At mountains king's return
1. War has already begun ... so, we come to it in the end.
2. Follow me threw the darkness.
6. Runes Of Power
The wind came down from mountain could
And like a tide it roared and rolled
The branches groaned, the forest moaned
And leaves were laid upon the mould
The wind went on from West to east
All movement in the forest ceased
But shrill an harsh across the marsh
Its whistling voices were released
1. And runes of power upon the door. There shone forever, fair and bright
7. Ashen Cold
A grin and a word is his trade
>From these his profit is made
Though his body is not tall and his courage seems small
His fame will take longer to fade
Beyond the ocean brews a battle
Beyond the battle blood shall fall
To a place where man forsaken
Dwells the one who should not live
Then a bargain shall be entered
Saurons might shall be restored
You and we were first to conquer
You and we shall be the last.
1. The world is grey, the mountain's old. The forges fire is ashen cold.
Who can find you clear springs of waters, but I can!
Who can tell you the age of the moon, but I can!
Who can call the fish from the depths of the see, yes I can!
Who can change the shapes of the hills and the headlands, I can!
I have been a sword in the hand,
I have been a shield in a fight,
I have been the string of a harp,
I can shift my shape like a god.
Farewell, leave the shore to an ocean wide and untamed
Hold your shield high, let the wind bring your enemy your nightmare
By the bane of my blade, a mighty spell is made and
Far beyond the battle blood shall fall like a hard rain.
1. And at the gates the trumpets rang.
2. This is my hour. Do you not know death when you see it die now!
