Asgard's Chase

from by Spiral Dance

/
  • Compact Disc (CD) + Digital Album

    Step through the Sylvan Doorway into the realm of the Goddess and the Green Man, where the horned one walks the leaf-dappled pathways and bright Áine dances in the greenwood at Midsummer.
    Feel the spirit of the trees and hear the stones whisper in a land where the Fae will sing you into another time and space.
    Come closer to the fire as the shadows lengthen and the beauty of the night surrounds you; dance to the tunes of your ancestors, hear the legend of Odin’s Wild Hunt and dark tales of immortal desire. And then remember the wise ones who have gone before.
    Spiral Dance bids you welcome.

about

Also known as the Wild Hunt. In Norse myth Odin rides out from Asgard leading a procession of wild spirits, deities, heroes and heroines into a night filled with lightning, thunder and fierce winds.

lyrics

As the sun sank on the twelfth day
And the night wind screamed
Across the threshold of time I felt them ride
It wasn’t something I dreamed
And through the hidden gateway I know the storm will come
I’ve heard the roll of thunder it’s the beating of their drum
And I have seen the storm clouds torn and tossed across the sky
‘Tis wild the hunt and darkly fey
That rides the wind from Asgard’s way
From icy peaks to lonesome moor
The spirit chase will pass your door
And within this unearthly night take you
The warning heed the cry
Behind locked doors you must stay for the hunt is wild
And darkly fey
As the moon rose on the twelfth night and the sky was torn
By a screaming gale a Valkyries wail and the host was born
And on the back of wild eyed she wolves Odin’s troop did ride
Across the veil of midnight with their bleak hounds by their side
Beware the voices of the lost souls they’ll call you as you dream
In the last hours of that dread night as to your bed you keep
Hold close your heart hold close your mind they’ll steal them
As you sleep
For the fey ones are riding and the wild hunt has come
But soon will leave for the shadowed hills
With the rising of the sun
No more to ride on hallowed ground
Till twelfth night comes again
