If we have to categorize our music then it may be something like,

Heavy Metal of Death and Doom


We and the old one with the ancient wooden trident.
In the circle we now once again have traveled around, it is now silent.

Autumn meets winter.
It is cold and dark.
From the fire of life only a little left,
a spark.

Forests are now obscure shadows of our nature.
May the strong elk protect our coming future.

The sun is swallowed by the moon (so they thought).
A new journey begins.
A Dawn Without Sun
