Wardruna – Runaljod Yggdrasil – Helvegen

Helvegen means The Way To Hel.

People who die in battle can hope to go either to Odin in Valhalla, or  Freyja in Fólkvangr.

Most folk will end up with Hel in some part of Helheim (Home of Hel). Live an honorable life and keep your oaths or you may be sent to the nasty part of Hel called Náströnd (Corpse Shore).  

Enjoy this haunting song by Wardruna …

Wardruna – Runaljod Yggdrasil – AnsuR

Lyrics:

Ásliđar alle
Valhallar visir
Magn i rotum vinda skal
Magn i torum vefa skal

Æsir all!
Wise of Valhalla!
strength in the roots wound shall be
strength in the roots woven shall be

Lyrics and translation taken from official Wardruna – Yggdrasil booklet.

Wardruna – Runaljod Yggdrasil – Solringen

Lyrics …
Sola gjekk i ringen, sumaren sende
Hanar galar rismål for alvar i enga

Avl i bringa – Avl i jordi

Hanar galande, galdrar groande
Nornar spinnande, lagnadar bindande
Gudar gråtande, ulvar ulande
ravnar ropande, risar sovande
Skuggar truande, aksen skinande
ulvar jagande soli flyktande.
