It's a Dimmu Borgir song entitles 'Vredesbyrd', I'd appreciate it if someone could translate it for me :) .

Reis deg opp
La oss bestride
Den tanke fra vår lend

Og dyrk
På en forbannet jord
En smertens ætt

For så og tynge
De barmhjertiges skjød
Som har tiltro til
Den sjelløses brød

For den tro du besitter
Er intet annet enn avsmak og hovmod
Og din nøden etter viten
Er en overflod av hån og skjend

Smerten i mitt hjerte er ikke tørste
Etter himmelsk legeme

Ei er det sviktende søken etter englemakt
Det er ilden og den brenner
Det er bare det at du
Skjemmer for den

Ta del i skyldens skygge
Behag din sjel med syndens under
For hvor er vel du
Når lampen slukkes

Men døden kommer ei
Med vårt bud
Gjenklang fra den prektiges arv
Vil innfri det endelige forderv

Bring dom over andre enn ditt eget hode
Der du gjemmer din skam i lovsang
Så skal du få smake frukten
Av din egen bortgang

Som en flokk av helveds opphav
Og forvaltere av foraktens sønn
Parerer vi deres list med avskyens prakt
Med beviset på vår tunge byrde
Ligger deres sinn i åndenød
Skamfert tilbake uten makt

I'll give it a go. Bear in mind that this translation is only rough, i haven't bothered to find the most suited word in some cases. Most of the words/translation should maybe have a more biblical/chuchlike sound to them.

Vredesbyrd : Testimony of Wrath


Rise up
Let us contest
The thought from our ...(lend: unknown word for me, it might mean country/land)

And work (as in working the land)
On cursed land (maybe Earth)
A family of pain

For then to burden
The mercyfulls bosom
Who have faith in
The soulless' bread

For the Faith you possess
Is nothing more than distaste and arrogance
And your search for knowledge
Is a flood of mockery and desecration

The pain in my heart is not thirst
For heavenly body

Nor is it the search (quest) for angelic power
It the fire and it burns
It's only that you
Hide it

Take part in the shaddow of guilt
Please your soul with the wonder of sin
For where would you be
When the lamp is turned of (light is gone, would be a better translation)

But death come not
With our messenger (or message)
Echoes from the nobles (grand) heritage
Will redeem (meet) the final corruption

Bring judgement over other than you own head
There you hide shame in praise
You shall then taste the fruit
Of your own passing (demise)

As a flock of hells origin
And keepers of the contempts son
We parry their cunning with (the power of) disgust
With the proof of our heavy burden
Their minds have difficult to breathe
Spoiled without power

I wasen't able to go see Dimmu Borgir in Oslo but a friend of mine saw them a couple of weeks ago in Stavanger.. They rocked big time he said. The set was fantastic and the new songs worked great live. So you've got something to look forward to.. :D

I've been looking forward to it for months :D ! Shame you couldn't see them live yourself though :( . Now the only problem is that I know the lyrics of only 2 songs of Death Cult Armageddon :blink: . Know just about everything from Enthrone Darkness Triumphant and Puritanical Euphoric Misanthropia though ^_^ .
Now... MOSH!!!

Thought for the day: we need that headbanging smiley...
