Proč se album jmenuje právě Beyond 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



Beyond the ninth wave


DHÁ LASAIR

Belenos, protect our souls while are we playing chords. 

Arianrhod, wake up hope, feel my flame to the bone.

Dance with us, take my hand to forget your pain. 
Sing with us, I know your mind, you are wild take me higher.


Take my hand nymph, don't call me names,
this night is ours, we are twin flames.
With open eyes, you can see, that beast within me, it's not me...

Calling you sweet names, you drink me,
with your soft face, it feels me,
your caring hand, holding me,
this moment never ends!


Taranis, you rang out throughout the mountains, it sounds like a cure. 

Cu allate, Wolfarian, join our pack, create legion, dance with me, take my hand to forget your pain. Sing with me, I know your mind, you are wild take me higher.

Under the same stars, we were born,
to enjoy our lives full of thorns,
so grab your mead and dance with us,
feel the moment, don't fight your lust ...


in your eyes, blood of your lips,
never dies, shapeless mist,
in our heads, tell yourself ...


Forget about old fairy tales,
we are same men, with different names,
unbound by will, but bound by blood,
so take my hand 'till this night is young.


Where you go, my steps will lead,
when someone hurts you, I will bleed,
in this forest and at this night,
our minds will bend, bodies light.


Prepare your ground I have your seed,
that will grow in our soul's heat.
You don't want to, I can't fight,
but mind this feeling that never dies.


But this night I feel your flame,
fire I cannot tame,
nature I cannot see,
so drop off your clothes and dance with me.


In the nights when bad times come,
during the days, when the spirit is weak,
we take out our flaming songs,
our power to believe.


Our words and chords are more than spears,
our stories, rhythm awake inner seer,
so hear our songs and feel and play,
from the last signs of the day.


Cernunnos please sing with me,
fill in my body, take my feet,
step in, ignite our inner flame,
one we can become.


With our lands and with our fields,
with the swift fresh wind which brightly sings,
so shine and burn and dance with me,
we have reason to be.


In the nights when bad times come,
during the days, when the spirit is weak,
I am the light that leads you out,
the forest of your fears.


Our minds entangled souls to one,
under the moon, under the sun,
so take my hand and at least try,
because this never ... dies!


Old Traveller

Thrown into world, without scars on face,
to race in the maze of life grown by the other ones.
Everything glows, slowly it flows,
right under your nose, that's the story that just began.


The first thing you know, that no one's your foe,
so keep your head low, and learn everything you can.
Listen to what is said, roll into the sheets,
not everything what's hurt, will also bleed.


Go forth; obey the ward of Aengus!

As the sun goes up and shines upon you,
light enlights the truth, that black does have so many shades.
One thing is right, the other is left,
so is it the theft, when don't you have another choice?


Stay true to your mind, don't delve on align,
right under the rind, sweet life-giving sap flows through.
Walk with the course, believe in your skills,
thrills are the best way, to overcome your biggest hills.


Go forth; follow the road of Cernunnos!


Thoughts about past with an accent of the flame,
casting shadows back to roots of the way.
Light that shines out of tomorrow land,
challenging path is a wide open hand.
You walk alone, towards your own síd,
with the seed of strange need, seer need two eyes to see.
Swallowed by warm, red, wet, boiling love,
it sticks by your side, provides you hefty, needful shove.


Hold your dove tight, sweet white wings of hope,
spread them and wave, be sure you feel elope.
Butter is spread, throats have been fed,
so sad times are gone, gave reason to stand and fight.


Go forth; stay true; feel warm of Olwen!
The lines were drawn, so long and so thick,
build brick by the brick, formed the wall, that cannot fall.
Along it is the stream, flowing, swift and bright,
turning the wheels, that endlessly and surely grind.
Turn head around, just look back and see,
how your road is pawed, by fruits of your loving breed.
Night falling down, swan is curving her neck,
yet closing your lids to slip into the darkness of another birth.


Fell dark; See light; embrace the Ibormeith!
Thoughts about past with an accent of the flame,
casting shadows back to roots of the way.
Light that shines out of tomorrow land,
challenging path is a wide open hand.
Like path go on aimed towards better days,
casting soft spells that wrinkles up your face.


Old traveller
passes through an unknown land. It shapes and it forms...
Thoughts about past with an accent of the flame,
casting shadows back to roots of the way.
Light that shines out of tomorrow land,
challenging path is a wide open hand.
Like path go on aimed towards better days,
casting soft spells that wrinkles up your face.


Old traveller
passes through an unknown land. It shapes and it forms,
it follows his commands.
Tremendous task that will ask put your mask down.
Dive deep inside then emerge with the new crown.
Everything now it's a woe, it is small bound.
Feel it, belief, hear the sound, which flows through the ground.

The Valley

Over hills, where the valley is low,

into vault made of leaves I will go,
with the mountain stream, I flow,
in the moonshine, I can howl.


During nights when the light won't shine,

followed by days without sign,
so far away I hear,
the calling of my stream.


Then he comes, whirling up my pool,

his footsteps ploughed away my jewel,
thunder strikes and he's away,
no light, nor dark, just grey.


Heavy clouds crying out their pain,

dreadful storm keeps my peace away,
so I close my eyes and see,
the valley, oaks and me.

Over hills, where the valley is low,

there was a place where I used to go.

Not today

Shout from the nowhere,
wakes me up from nightmares,
does it look like I care?
Just first step on my road.


I raise up when I fall

and choose which way to go,
I maybe slip away ...
BUT NOT TODAY!


Shout from the nowhere,

wakes me up from nightmares,
does it look like I care?
another way to go.


When your head falls apart,

while sadness tears your heart,
all you have to say:
"IT's NOT TODAY!"


Shout from the nowhere,

wakes me up from nightmares,
does it look like I care?
Another rock on road.


I walk across the lands

and try to understand,
with music in my heart,
I WILL PLAY!


Shout from the nowhere,

wakes me up from nightmares,
does it look like I care?
Another rock on road.


I walk across the lands

and try to understand,
with music in my heart,
I WILL PLAY!
Shout from the nowhere,
hunts me in my nightmares,
does it look like I care?
I hear it well and clear.


When I fall in the night sky,

I feel like I could die,
It's blowing off my light,
but I WILL FIGHT!


Shout from the nowhere,

that I heard in nightmares,
telling me how I dare,
stand against my fate.


When I lost my lead,

it doesn't mean I bleed,
my wounds will heal up fast...
I WILL LAST!


Shout from the nowhere,

fade away like the nightmare,
cannot step in a snare,
when my eyes are open wide!


Every road have end,

everyone must bend,
fall down and obey...
BUT NOT TODAY!


The Moon and the river

Deep places around,

bound under the hide,
left behind my decay
asking ...
... why I do need hide
like there is no tide,
to take me far away.


I feel a shadow in light,

betrayal in dawn
of the new life.
Stream, please let me know,
I embrace your flow
will you take me home?


Look straight into the eye,

sailing through the night,
deep in your heart
crawling in the dark ...
... afraid of the light,
tangled by night,
Revive and you will find.


Light, on every wave,

Trust, in your / my crave,
In the new life.
Shine, shine my bright reel,
Swallow dark dream,
With the moonlight glow.


Light, on every wave,

Trust, in your / my crave,
In the new life.
Shine, shine my bright reel,
Swallow dark dream,
With the moonlight glow.


I feel shadow in light,

Betrayal in dawn
OF the new life.
Stream, please let me know,
I embrace your flow,
Will you take me home?


Reel Is shadow in light,

Believe in new dawn,
Of the old life.
Dream will let you glow,
Is base for your growth,
It will take you home.


Beneath the Hill

Sun is falling over the meadow,

Behind me is growing shadow,
Drawing road back to my sorrow,
Beneath the Hill.
The fallen bird sang a song about two,
Every tone was loyal to you,
Now it's sealed over the ninth wave,
Beneath the Hill.


Bounded by obsession,
Led by your aggression,
Tension humiliation,
In tears od depression.
Finders keepers,
Voiceless speakers,
Twisted hearts are
restless weepers,
Trapped in depths of the sea.


Our love crushed
Beneath all this weight,
Bait of fate
was swollen with hate,
Carried without the will,
Thrown beneath the Hill.Dark Is screaming, echo stays quiet,
Think of me, please bring me your light,
Morrigan is tightening her bight,
Beneath the Hill.


Once a time stone wall broke apart,
The light went in and comforted my heart,
I am free and he departed,
Beneath the Hill.Gift of the guild was given,
Received, cared and driven,
Shriven, Unforgiven,
Buried down and hidden.


Finders keepers,
Voiceless speakers,
Twisted hearts are
restless weepers,
Trapped in depths of the sea.


Our love crushed
Beneath all this weight,
Bait of fate
was swollen with hate,
Carried without the will,
Thrown beneath the Hill.


I found understanding,
The grief that's never ending,
Leaving what is trending,
Covered me with red ink.
Finders keepers,
Voiceless speakers,
Twisted hearts are
restless weepers,
Trapped in depths of the sea.


Our love crushed
Beneath all this weight,
Bait of fate
was swollen with hate,
Carried without the will,
Thrown beneath the Hill.


Tainted mind faded away,
Delayed, deep down betrayed,
Persuade heart to the blockade,
I'm here, giving you aid.
Climb up, into fresh air,
It's my burden to bare,
stop this pointless warfare,
this is last declare!


Farewell

Deep, Calm forest. As dark as the night sky above.

The wind plays with the branches as it does with the waters
and creates the waves on this sanctuary of life.
And on the places, where the moonshine touches the ground,
the spirits, guardians of the forest, dance around.

Human, don't you care?

Well ... you don't see.
You don't have to be.
You are here thanks to me.
Yeah ... your future here depends on me.

Human, don't you care?

Well ... you don't see.
You don't have to be.
You are here thanks to me.
Yeah ... your future here depends on me.

I see your face,

your beauty, your grace.
But I'm afraid,
I can't stop this reign,
of our shade,
which comes from our fame,
that we obey away.

Look at kind of mine,

our hunger, our grind,
we need to thrive,
to stay here alive,
to spread our fate,
our one pointless truth,
which keeps us so far from you ...

FIRE is cleaning this forest,
devouring way for freedom,
and advance, so humans can last!
Axe, and rope, in our hands,
will tame all sprouts and waters,
of nature, all living will serve!

Human, don't you care?

Well ... you don't see.
You don't have to be.
You are here thanks to me.
Yeah ... your future here depends on me.

Human, don't you care?

Well ... you don't see.
You don't have to be.
You are here thanks to me.
Yeah ... your future here depends on me.

See, our progress, our power,

neverending desire for control,
you survive, or die!

Sleep and dream and let us

spread our hands all around you
forever, and obscure the sky!

Human, you breathe through me,

You live on me.
You don't have to be.
You are here thanks to me.
Yeah ... your future here depends on me.

Far away in the north

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!
