Eluveitie - Virunus Lyrics

North of the yew grove
One mountain was crowned
With glory and steel

Shining beacon of wealth
Home of the prosperous
High Princess of Noreia

One man
To fight on the blood-red mountainside
One man
To vanquish the rapacious beast
Once man
to end the age of distress
One man
To fulfill the prophecy enthean

One fateful day it appeared
That colossal and furious boar
To feed on our sacred lands
A swath of destruction
Was all that remained

Iron swords were raised in vain
Asunder burst our lightning spears
Oppressed and stricken we languished in fear
Until he rose...

Vir! Vir! Vir! Vir!

North of the yew grove
One man stepped forth
To challenge the beast

The father of this town,
Home of the prosperous
High Princess of Noreia

    It's hard to pick a "best" song on this CD--it crushes you with epicness :) from start to finish.  If I had to pick a top 5 though, this song would certainly be in it.  

    Father Of The Wolf

    My favorite is Sucellos

    with an irish jig at the end 

  15. Jo GTP

    What's the lyrics between 2:25 and 2:40 ?

    Wise Hodor

    Flanked by the gods, the conqueror stepped forth. As it was also told in the legend of Calydon, he laid the boar around his shoulders, and the people proclaimed... "Virunus".

    There ya go. A fuckin' epic speech, which by rights should be transcribed in EVERY iteration of lyrics, but isn't.

  16. TheGentleMen
