Bonus CD tracklisting:

1. Beloved Feral Winter (05:10)

Lyrics:

Snow - caress me
Wind - embrace me
while my traces fade

Moon - the only light
and countless silvern stars
open skies brighten up…

Left - my home
Lost - my retreat
no way to take refuge

Asynja…

No step forward
nor withdraw
desperate yet stout

A lifetime
struggling for your affinity
and following your signs
till the end of days

Gracious sleep
grants silken dreams
rehashes my frozen heart
silvern like a star,
always and forever,
my beloved feral winter

Rustiling leafs aloft
caressed by gentle gales
the wolves walk at my side

Fires surrounding me
as blue as heaven high
and no one knows my ways…

2. En Lintinbluitin Faran... (04:46)

Lyrics:

Vaer fluisterend wourd duurdreght den vind
jej byst idejlen’s stiltar
Vaer lintinbluitin helder bluind
jej byst imittan’s hvitar

Vaer manaens luiht den vej afaerst
jej byst idejlen’s silvaern
Vaer sunnafiuri luihterend wijd
jej byst imittan’s guldyn

Zo wijd dej vind dej liodhar waejt
Zo wijd den ravans rouf ons voert hinan

Vaer rouden louv i narjaar faert
jej byst idejlen’s bluotis
Vaer svartar natt mijn hjerta strivt
jej byst imitta’s skhatouwn
jej byst idejlen’s allaens

[English translation:]

Where a whispered word pervades the wind
you are a part of silence
Where lime blossoms are blooming bright
you are amidst the whiteness

Where the light of the moon embraces the way
you are part of my silveriness
Where sunfires glowing far
you are amidst the golden

As far as the wind the tunes will blow
As far the ravens call lead us onward

Where red leafage during autumn falls
you are a part of the blood
Where dark night touches my heart
you are amidst the shadows
you are a part of everything

3. Return To Ultima Thule (03:25) (re-recording of the song "Ultima Thule" from the band's debut album '...En Their Medh Riki Fara...')

Lyrics:

A world is deep inside of me
filled with ancient pride
no mortal one has ever seen
the horse on which I ride

The one-eyed God is on my way
Thor will be my guide
Freya knows the patch I go
Fenris-Wolf to fight

Ultima Thule

4. I Svertar Sunna Luihtint (05:59) (instrumental) (re-recording of a song from the '96 demo with a new title)

level   (85/100)
The decreased usage of English in this album added more to the Viking-esque aspect of the album. Very nice work as always.

참 대단한 밴드~! 신보 내놓을 때마다 계속 성숙한 진보를 한다. 이번 앨범 곡들은 영어가사가 아닌 Limburgish(림뷔르흐어, 네덜란드/벨기에/독일 국경지대 방언)로 만들었다. 바키아스 특유의 클린보컬 찬가 보이스가 여전히 매력적이다~!
level   (80/100)
역시 못해도 보통 이상의 퀄리티.
