Proč se album jmenuje právě Byond the ninth wave, tedy Za devátou vlnou?

Devátá vlna je metaforické označení pro vyvrcholení negativní gradace, které vychází z námořní legendy, že devátá vlna je vždy nejhorší. V původním významu po deváté vlně přijdou menší vlny, které opět gradují k další deváté vlně,. Tedy devátá vlna je chápána jako zatěžkávací zkouška, kterou kdo přežije, má vyhráno.

Devátá vlna má blízko i ke keltské mytologii neboť legendární "deváté vlně" vládne krásná keltská bohyně Cliodna a "za devátou vlnou" se nachází "keltský ráj", kde z mlh vystupuje rajský ostrov plný vodopádů, krásných žen a krásných ptáků.

Náš příběh se odehrává v daleké severní zemi, která je jednou z částí legendárního Yggdrasilu. Přesuňme se do dob hrdinů, jejich činů a bitev, které změnily historii... Jarl slavil nejedno vítězství a byl v zemi znám jako "Ragnar Oslagbar", tedy neporažený, nebo chcete-li neporazitelný. Spousta menších kmenů se ho ani neodvážila neuposlechnout, natož ho vyzvat na souboj. Všichni totiž věděli, že po jeho boku v pochvě při něm vždy bude věrně viset toliko slavný meč - Wolfarian. Tento meč mohl získat jen ten, jež byl oným vyvoleným. Ti, kteří jej měli tu možnost spatřit tvrdí, že větší ušlechtilost, vážnost a vznešenost nikdy předtím neviděli. Náš příběh bude příběhem jarlovým. Tradice pravila, že meč se mohl dědit pouze z otce na syna, a tak tomu šlo už bezmála po třiadvacet generací. Jak tomu tak bývá, měl Jarl i nepřátele. Jednalo se o druhý největší klan v zemi, který byl veden Ragnarovým nevlastním bratrem Jorgenem, závidějícím Ragnarovi moc a hlavně Wolfarian. Rozhodl se ho získat za každou cenu a nebál se využít všech možných i nemožných prostředků. Strhl se tedy boj mezi dvěma pro zemi významnými kmeny. Jorgen proti Ragnarovi, bratr proti bratrovi.

O písních

Prologue
"We put our souls to this story, filled with pride, full of hope ..."
Skladba zobrazuje, že každý z nás má svůj životní příběh. Svou naději, trápení, radosti, zklamání a boj.

Homecoming
... with blade and hilt of wolfish soul ...
Píseň o skupině bojovníků, kteří se po vyhrané bitvě vrací do rodného kraje. Jsou vyčerpaní, ale šťastní, že přízeň bohů byla protentokrát na jejich straně...

Shade of victory
Byli zaslepeni slávou, bohatstvím a obdivem. Oslavovali svůj příchod z bitvy. Bojovali za svou zemi, za svého jarla. Při vší pýše je ani na vteřinu nenapadlo, že ne každé vítězství je konečné. Každému se nedá věřit....

Sky of waves
...Vikingové plují přes moře vybojovat další bitvu...

Clemency
Doprovodná píseň bojovníků, kteří se vylodili na bojišti, kde se mají střetnout se svými nepřáteli. Namísto zaznění prvního tasení mečů k nim však promluvil Odin. Tóny Clemency s sebou přináší radost a veselí, protože bojovníkům bylo přislíbeno milosrdenství spolu s pozváním do Odinovy zlaté hodovní síně - Valhally. Jak to s nimi nakonec dopadne?

The Parley
...Střet dvou bratrů, kdysi rodina a nyní největší nepřátelé... 

For our fate
...Zuřící bitva, bitevní song...

Mors Nobiscum
...Prohra, smíření s osudem... 

Confession
..."Mistakes were made." I've told you all life long...
Confession vypráví o zradě. Když ho nejvíc potřebovali, opustil je. Nyní se ke svému činu doznává.

Valhőll
..."Cesta bojovníka", smrt, přílet Valkýr, velká oslava ve Valhalle...

TEXTY



PROLOGUE

We put our souls to this story, filled with pride, full of hope. Sworn to Gods we're gonna fight for victory. Until the heat of battlefields burns out, until the last stormy wave in the sea calms down, we can' t find peace.

These tones are our memory, testimony guiding and protecting our steps. And these mountains, forests and rivers are our witnesses...



SHADE OF VICTORY

Raise your horns to honour us

We are back from enemies' blood and dust
With our weapons side by side
We fought hardly for our pride
Týr also on battlefield
God of war is guarding you with his shield
No wounds unhealed, no one dies
We prayed to him for your lives


Ref.: Jealous rat has burried victory,
That shade is falling towards the misery


Hunger, thirst and howling cold
Were chasing us until we thought of lore
Which is our frozen home
Forgot the pain, faith was sworn
Every sunrise, every day
Look for you from distant lands far away
Hope to see men alive, health
Our vikings graved even death


Ref.: Jealous rat has burried victory
That shade is falling towards the misery
We' ll war again for dignity
Vail is life in Valhöll to eternity


Lord - I sense a great fear in you, my child, is there

anything, that cannot let you sleep at night?

Morrigan - I have a bad feeling my lord, something terrible happened.

Lord - Tell me, what bothers you?

Morrigan - In my dream... An army, carnage... death

Lord - Death you say? Lots of good warriors fell in battle. But now we are at peace, VICTORY IS OURS!

Morrigan - I wish it was true my lord, but my dream was as real as there are stars up in the sky.

Lord - A raven... Was there a raven in your dream

Morrigan - Flying above thousands of pikes. Crying the battlesong, it was flowing fear through my veins.. yes, black raven.

Lord - That´s what I was afraid of...

Morrigan - My lord ?

Lord - Morrigan, my child, goddess of my people entered your mind and warned us. Anything else? Was there a person?

Morrigan - Yes my lord, he was running away, I could not see his face.

Lord - So be it... THEY BETRAYED US!!!



THE PARLEY


Jorgen: I do want
throne of yours
sword you own
land of mine
I don´t care
what you think
or what you heard
Fight me


Ragnar: I don't want to fight and war with you brother anymore

Join me to overrule seas and the world, here is your sword...

Jorgen: Can´t you feel?
Are you blind?
I am not
fellow of yours
Give me now
what is mine
otherwise
you will die


Ragnar: One leader's blood, one brotherhood, don't blemish my heart and my soul

Look, one nordic frozen land, two tribes and hate which dominates...


Jorgen: Save your tears
for the day
you will kneel
by my reign
are you afraid
of my rage
you´re nothing, but
coward


Ref.: I remember days, when we children were
So innocent, pure and young
Back to our past I would come and changed
The monster which is in you now
Memories of me, memories of you
Riding horses, fighting together
With our wooden swords
Behaving like lords
Oh, how I miss it my brother


Jorgen: Hear my words
all of you
Ragnar´s old

pathetic men
I will not undergo
you will not
be my lord


Ragnar: This kindly kingdom's big enough for both of us, you're not my slave

Selfish Jorgen, please do stop now this madness, because it's worthless...


Jorgen: Odin be
by my side
guide by blow
and my strike
no more hum
taste my blade
can you feel?
It´s your death


Ragnar: Swallowing pain, I'm so sorry for what you feel about me
Banish craving for revenge, tempting sweet potion in your veins
Sibling of mine is repressed by inferiority
Venom, fear and anger are haunting you like a quarry


Ref.: I remember days, when we children were
So innocent, pure and young
Back to our past I would come and changed
The monster which is in you now

Memories of me, memories of you
Riding horses, fighting together
With our wooden swords
Behaving like lords
Oh how I miss it my brother


Ref.: I remember days, when we children were
So innocent, pure and young
Back to our past I would come and changed
The monster which is in you now
Memories of me, memories of you
Riding horses, fighting together
With our wooden swords
Behaving like lords
Oh how I miss it my brother 


VALHÖLL 


We were born, to die by sword,
in heart of battle, my blood goes warm,
through gray fog I see my faith,
my mind is clear and sharp is my blade.


My eyes are red, but I don't need a sleep,
I'll swipe them down, with single cleave.
We were raised by many wars,
I want to die and open my door.


Battle born, sun prepares to dawn,
fill your lungs with this burning smoke,
blow your horn, scare them with your scream,
let them show, what's like to die in fear.
When your head falls on this ground,
We'll release you from your bound.


Cold wind woke me up early morning,
Dawn wasn't even fully born,
I left my bed with still peacefully sleeping woman,
I put on an armor I've always worn.

From the first step out of my tent,
I felt strange feelings in my veins,
I felt brave and fearless like water in a lake,
Filled with the power of thousand wolfish blades...
That power was furiously growing,
And I've shouted from the bottom of my lungs.


Odin! I wait for you here!
My last dawn welcomes me!
And I am prepared!
I want to see stars,
a little bit closer!
And I feel my destiny!


Joy awaits in halls of stone and gold,
in the place, where isn't grief nor cold,
so draw your sword, sharpen your eyes and ears,
remind your home, there won't be any tears.
Words are red on final page,
full of wrath and full of rage.


Left side of the battlefield,
an ancient forest old as the time itself,
and we as an ambush group were hidden in it,
waiting for the signal, waiting for our time.
Suddenly, out of nowhere,
silver arrow scratched my arm.
My brothers draw their weapons, and so did I,
Second of finding foes in the dark of the forest,
our feet moved and I've shouted from the bottom of my lungs...


Odin! I wait for you here!
My first blood welcomes me,
greets me so well!
I wanna see stars,
A little bit closer!
I do feel pain,
I do feel my rage,
I am now running,
towards my reckoning,
my strenght is coming,
through what I will die for.


I came down from our hall of fame
To bring your soul to Gods.
You died in honor for your land
with courage in your eyes.
Follow the light it guides your path,
it shows you where roads end,
through spilling blood from veins of foes,
through painless golden gateway.


Battle born, forget your frozen throne,
take a step, into the howling fjord.
Fall through past, through your sun and moon,
through your fears, which lead you to your doom.
Valkyrija, I'm your guide and mate,
since your birth, to fearless golden gate,
Hear my voice, let it lead your trail,
forgotten choice, the verse of many tales.
Spear is piercing through your heart,
endless pain tears you apart.


Couldn't hear a thing.
whole weight of the Yggdrasil fell on my shoulders,
I felt no pain, no life, nothing...
But it wasn't the end, I sensed "life" in me.
I saw my brothers,
they were sitting and drinking well,
I yelled: "Odin's blessing lights upon you fellas."
they replied: "Same upon you my friend."
I am sure, I am here,
so I've yelled deeply from my immortal soul:


Odin! Now I am here!
My first dawn welcomes me,
I am prepared.
I see the stars,
a little bit closer,
I fulfilled my destiny,
here in Valhalla.


HOMECOMING

Long ago far away in north
Were coming warriors from war
They rose their swords up to the sky
Determination, valor in the shinning eye

Here we are
Returning home
Praise the Odin
For next morning
We can be among the living
With blade and hilt of wolfish soul


We could hear the sound of glory
Scent of the fame was our hope
With pride and blessing we return
To frozen nordic land that is our home


Here we are
Returning home
Praise the Odin
For next morning
We can be among the living
With blade and hilt of wolfish soul


At the end of our way

We fought the hordes
Through night and day
May the gods watch over us
Asgard orders we obey


SKY OF WAVES


Floating on the waves
Unknown is the course of ours
in the distance
we can see no mainland
no haven nor port for us
in this wasteland
Certain annihilation
retreat, other way of doom
behold


No more seeing the shores of our beloved homeland
No more feeling the breeze of the thousand lakes
No scent of the Koivu we will remember
Farewell, farewell


There are all powers vain
Of the mortal men
There ain´t no aid of the gods
In this pitch black emptiness
Fear flowing through our flesh
fear of the oncoming fray
there where´s the sky of waves


There are all powers vain
Of the mortal men
There ain´t no aid of the gods
In this pitch black emptiness
Fear flowing through our flesh
fear of the oncoming fray
there where´s the sky of waves
for our dragon mate


No more seeing the shores of our beloved homeland
No more feeling the breeze of the thousand lakes
No scent of the Koivu we will remember
Farewell, farewell


There are all powers vain
Of the mortal men
There ain´t no aid of the gods
In this pitch black emptiness
Fear flowing through our flesh
fear of the oncoming fray
there where´s the sky of waves


There are all powers vain
Of the mortal men
There ain´t no aid of the gods
In this pitch black emptiness
Fear flowing through our flesh
fear of the oncoming fray
there where´s the sky of waves



FOR OUR FATE


We, we will battle for this day
For our fate, the sky up there
Know that Gods are on our side
Cause runes they never lie


As, as long we have all those guns
We don't give up, take our chance
See foes like servile poor worms
Cannot stop us in this war


Trail, trail of dust is rising up
Deadly silent lips to hum
Bleaching, bleeding, one last breath
No more longing, here comes death

Here I am to collect souls.
You are the chosen ones to be in my army for the very last fight.
Sun is down, souls are mine so hungry for the blood.
Since now Ragnar's warriors are servants of Odin!


Serve, serve you well
Our dearest lord.
Time to go on, better place.
Betrayer, so blind we were,
Curse him pain, but that was ...

Fateful stunning fight
Through this endless night
List their legacy for modern ages
Hear whispers from ground
Those songs all around
Hidden in wind just wait to hark



CONFESSION


On your journey day by day,
leaving them griefing and betrayed.
Should have chosen different way,
for salvation, for aid they pray.


On your journey night by night,
trying to reach your only goal.
They all need you by their side,
you cut your strings, you broke your woe.


You know what you've done,
you were wrong.
"Mistakes were made"
I've told you all life long.
You're gonna ...


I'm gonna pay for every step,
I'm gonna pay for every debt,
The moment when my rancour grew.
I did this all for you!


On your journey you found your peace,
across the bridge, you see the gate,
I feel sorrow, I taste your grief,
I'm waiting here, you are late.


ONE, TWO, FOLK YOU!


Wait for you - I don't care waiting there.
Prayers were heard - I don't mind, you are blind.
Cry for you - My mind will celebrate.
Heartless bird - Welcome here, my sweetdream.


I know what I've done,
I was wrong.
"Mistakes were made"
You've told me all life long.
I'm gonna ...


You're gonna pay for every step,
You're gonna pay for every debt,
The moment when your rancour grew
You did this all for me.
You did this all for me!
