about

Skycrater's fifth album and third epic/power rock album, "The Forges of Ingur" recounts the tale of a young smith who changes his hammer and anvil for a sword and shield. Will he manage to protect his town from Elsorth, a powerful dragon? Dark turn the skies when the reckless worm besieges the famous Mount Ingur, and shivering with fear do archers and swordsmen wait for him as he finally plunges on the town with a deafening howl.

With a more progressive approach and use of acoustic guitars, this new tale bears the taste of the wrath and fire of a dragon as evil as large and powerful. Although most songs follow a slower tempo than in Skycrater's previous work "Tale of the Frozen Valley", the quick-paced bass-drum, explosive toms and heavy power-chord riffs make "The Forges of Ingur" another powerful and dark-flavoured epic tale.

Track Name: The Forges of Ingur
Fire, it burns all day and all night
It never stops, it never stops

Fire, deep in the mountain-side we burn the coal

We melt the iron, we hammer steel
We melt the iron, we hammer steel

No one can rival us, no one does even try
We are the only ones, we are the finest smiths

More precious than gold, our bright iron flows
Into the stone moulds, ready to be forged

Fire, it burns all day and all night
It never stops, it never stops

We forge the swords for heroes and kings
We forge the power to take down all evil

We forge the light, we forge with might
We forge today and we’ll forge tomorrow

We are Ingur
We are Ingur

We are the smiths of the Forges of Ingur
Red burn the fires through the night
Deep in the mountain we hammer the steel
We shaped the past and now shape days to come

We are the smiths of the Forges of Ingur
Red burn the fires through the night
Deep in the mountain we hammer the steel
We shaped the past and now shape days to come

Covered in snow, And lost in the clouds
Our mountain is fountain of gold

Pure is its iron, abundant its coal
Our mountain is fountain of gold

Since long it belongs to our people of old
Forever this shall be our home

Father to son has passed on the skills
Forever this shall be our home

We forge the light, we forge with might
We forge today and we’ll forge tomorrow

We are Ingur
We are Ingur

We are the smiths of the Forges of Ingur
Red burn the fires through the night
Deep in the mountain we hammer the steel
We shaped the past and now shape days to come

We are the smiths of the Forges of Ingur
Red burn the fires through the night
Deep in the mountain we hammer the steel
We shaped the past and now shape days to come

Like it or not, Mount Ingur is ours
Mount Ingur is our stronghold

Soldiers or thieves, your fight is in vain
Mount Ingur is our stronghold


We forge the light
We forge with might
We forge today and
We’ll forge tomorrow

We are Ingur
We are Ingur

We are the smiths of the Forges of Ingur
Red burn the fires through the night
Deep in the mountain we hammer the steel
We shaped the past and now shape days to come

We are the smiths of the Forges of Ingur
Red burn the fires through the night
Deep in the mountain we hammer the steel
We shaped the past and now shape days to come

Fire, it burns all day and all night
It never stops, it never stops

Fire, deep in the mountain-side we burn the coal

We melt the iron, we hammer steel
We melt the iron, we hammer steel
Track Name: The Smith and the Maid
Fair maid, long is your hair, black like the night
Will it wait for me?
Fair maid, deep are your eyes, bright like the sun
Will they cry when I leave?

My Queen, soft is your voice, sweet like the breeze
Will it sing for me?
My Queen, white is your skin, pure like the silk
Will you love me when I return?

Honour: righteous, noble, lover!

I would fight, would die
Wait for my return
I will fight, victorious
I will come back for you

Honoured I will be
Knighted and proud
I will come back
I will return for my…

My Queen, soft is your voice, sweet like the breeze
Will it sing for me?
My Queen, white is your skin, pure like the silk
Will you love me when I return?

I will show all my love
All my life is for you
I will rise again to destroy your enemy
Lend you my hand, thus lend you my power

I sense that dark clouds will cover the sky
I feel the sadness, I can see the grieving
But would it be love if it were easy to build?
Doomed is the castle that’s built on the sand

Take my hands one last time for short is the life
And we got to make the most of it
Love if the fountain of life without love we can’t live
Without love we are doomed to die

Today we say farewell one day I will return
Give you my honour and give you my love
Then our souls shall be entangled forever
We shall be like one, the fair knight and my…

My Queen, soft is your voice, sweet like the breeze
Will it sing for me?
My Queen, white is your skin, pure like the silk
Will you love me when I return?

Trust me my Queen
Don’t cry my angel
Long is the path
But we shall reach the end

Long is my way
I will fight for you
I will survive for my love
I will return for my Queen

Unripe is our love
Let it grow strong
Give it time to lay down its roots
It shall turn into the strongest bonds
No living man can set loose

My Queen, soft is your voice, sweet like the breeze
Will it sing for me?
My Queen, white is your skin, pure like the silk
Will you love me when I return?

Love me when I return
Wait for me, for me
My Queen
Love me when I return
Wait for me for me

Wait for me…
Track Name: A Squire's Prayer
Father, give me the power to fight
Father, give me a shield and a light
Strong is the knight who can spare his adversary
Father, give me a sword and a heart

Dark is this hour and gone is the sun
In candlelight I kneel to You as a son
Revenge and anger both linger in my heart
Father, give me a soul to forgive

Hate and revenge light my soul
Fire and rage burn me with pain
I’ve come a long way to forget it all
But still it burns deep inside me
Fire, leave me

I need your love, I need your power
I need your blessings (to) carry on regardless
I need your hand, I need your armour
I need your breath (to) make me stronger
Anger, leave my soul


Father, give me the power to fight
Father, give me a shield and a light
Strong is the knight who can spare his adversary
Father, give me a sword and a heart

Dark is this hour and gone is the sun
In candlelight I kneel to You as a son
Revenge and anger both linger in my heart
Father, give me a soul to forgive

Father, give me the power to fight
Father, give me a shield and a light
Strong is the knight who can spare his adversary
Father, give me a sword and a heart

Dark is this hour and gone is the sun
In candlelight I kneel to You as a son
Revenge and anger both linger in my heart
Father, give me a soul to forgive

Three years have now gone by
Three years of hard toil
Shield and blade I handle
Horse I can now ride
Mace to dismantle
Horse fast like lightning
Like a strong warrior
All I need now is a heart

Fire or water, give me your blessings
Careless or lover, give me my heading
Don’t keep me waiting, burning is my soul
Give me an answer, give me a sign made of light
Light my soul

Father, give me the power to fight
Father, give me a shield and a light
Strong is the knight who can spare his adversary
Father, give me a sword and a heart

Dark is this hour and gone is the sun
In candlelight I kneel to You as a son
Revenge and anger both linger in my heart
Father, give me a soul to forgive

Dawn will soon come and the light shall arise
From high in the sky it shall shine on a new knight
Lord, give me eyes to see and let live
Father, give me a soul to forgive
Track Name: Into the Forest
Into the forest, into Rasmath
Dawn is now near, yet still lie the woods
Soon sun will rise, yet cold creeps the fog
Where is life gone?
Cold, lies the land now

Into the forest, into Rasmath
Dawn is now near, yet still lie the woods
Soon sun will rise, yet cold creeps the fog
I feel evil lies close at hand…

Into the forest, into Rasmath
Cold is all the forest, birds are all gone
I sense there is fear, I feel the evil
There is smoke
Low between the tree roots

Into the forest, into Rasmath
Cold is all the forest, birds are all gone
I sense there is fear, I feel the evil
Where is life gone?
Cold, lies the land now
Track Name: The Knight and the Dragon
Elsorth the dragon sleeps
Elsorth has come down
From the mountains

Fear the dragon, smell his breath
Fear the reckless, flee the monster
Save your life, he watches you

Down with the mist he came here
To light a fire
Like the wind he flies high
He will spare none

Down from the mountain he came
Burn down all life
He came

Elsorth’s like fire alive
His breath is destruction and horror

Knight, take heed, hold your horse
Spare your life, don’t go into fight
Knight, don’t be brave, you would die
You know it for sure

You are still young
You can’t fight against a dragon
Don’t go into fight
Anselm, take heed
Do not throw away your life

Elsorth the dragon sleeps
Elsorth has come down
From the mountains

Death he gave to thousand men
Fear his power
Fire he lights from cold stones
Fear his fire

Fear, ride on
Fear, ride on
Fire will burn, kill, tear apart

Knight, don’t wake the dragon
Spare your life
Knight, don’t anger Elsorth
He breathes fire

Fast like lightning, he would burn you
Large like mountain, he would crush you
Knight, don’t anger Elsorth
Too late, he saw you!

“You’ve come a long way to die, proud knight
Is it for me that you bear those gifts?”

“You are mistaken if you think I’m rich
I am but a poor traveler on his way home”

“You’re but a poor liar, foolish knight
My sight is keener than eagle’s eyes
I see the sword hanging from your horse
I know its value is beyond count

There’s no need to lie again
Though I relish your attempts
There’s no real need to pretend
I don’t know what is your plan

Annihilation
Annihilation
Annihilation
Don’t you fear my
Wrath?”

Knight, don’t wake the dragon
Spare your life
Knight, don’t anger Elsorth
He breathes fire

Fast like lightning, he would burn you
Large like mountain, he would crush you
Knight, don’t anger Elsorth
Too late, he saw you!

Elsorth the dragon awoke
Elsorth has come down
From the mountains

Elsorth the dragon is alive
He has come down
Elsorth has come to take your land
He will burn all

“I feel like burning you right now
For your steed’s sure a nice dinner
But I think I will let you go
Call for help so more men will come

How dare you think you can fight Elsorth
My armour is a thousandfold stronger than yours
My teeth can cut through steel and stone
My mouth breathes terror and destruction!

There’s no need to lie again
Though I relish your attempts
There’s no real need to pretend
I don’t know what is your plan

Annihilation
Annihilation
Annihilation
Don’t you fear my
Wrath?”

Knight, don’t wake the dragon
Spare your life
Knight, don’t anger Elsorth
He breathes fire

Fast like lightning, he would burn you
Large like mountain, he would crush you

Knight, don’t wake the dragon
Spare your life
Knight, don’t anger Elsorth
He breathes fire

Fast like lightning, he would burn you
Large like mountain, he would crush you
Knight, don’t anger Elsorth
Too late, he saw you!
Track Name: Elsorth's Fire
“From high in the sky, I come
Fall like the hail, I crush
Hot like magma, I burn… and burn I will!

Wings like an eagle, I soar
From up in the sky, I watch you
Run in misery, and fear
Short you will last, I promise

Now, where is courage gone when you
Know who is your enemy: Elsorth?
Now, do you fear the tales that you were told
As a child

Fear, I can see the fear deep in your eyes
I’ll feast upon your lives later
Rage: now you know how powerless you are
Face to my fire

Flee from me, ride
Flee from me or fight!

Long I’ve been waiting for this battle
Long I’ve been craving for your gold
Long I’ve been looking to this day
Tonight I will feast in glory

Dragon fire you still did not taste
Watch it burn all into ashes
Feel its cold bite onto your skin
Wait in pain ‘till I fly down

Now, where is courage gone when you
Know who is your enemy: Elsorth?
Now, do you fear the tales that you were told
As a child

Fear, I can see the fear deep in your eyes
I’ll feast upon your lives later
Rage: now you know how powerless you are
Face to my fire

Flee from me, ride
Flee from me or fight!”

“Elsorth!
Elsorth!”

“Red is the sun and like gold I shine
Enjoy the sight for soon it will rain
Rain of fire and clouds of ash
Hell for all life but Heaven for me

I am so glad that you came to fight
Inside your homes I know hide your wives
What if I burn down the city first?
Leave you the agony to see it all

Now, where is courage gone when you
Know who is your enemy: Elsorth?
Now, do you fear the tales that you were told
As a child

Fear, I can see the fear deep in your eyes
I’ll feast upon your lives later
Rage: now you know how powerless you are
Face to my fire

Flee from me, ride
Flee from me or fight!”
Track Name: Gudmund and Angris
“I ride onto the fire
Ride onto your burnt town
Cower into your caves
Fire will soon take you out!”

“Cry of anger, cry of fear
We know you won’t dare come in here
Big and strong you surely are
Come taste the steel of our swords!

Come, ride on your fire
Come, show us your power!”

“Foolish, I know you are
Take me, I know you can’t
Lure me inside you won’t
Burn, all, inside, you will

Dreams of paradise I crush
I’ll take you down into fire
Taste my life, taste your hell
I’ll shape your future into fire”

“Fly into fire, come fly into fire”

“Can your doors stand my power?
Can your swords pierce my armour?”

“Come, come, come, come
Fight, fight, fight, fight!

Come, come, come, come
Fight, fight, fight, fight!”

“I’ll turn you gates in splinters
Run while there is still time
Sharpen your swords
Still, I will not feel their sting!”

“Cry of anger, cry of fear
We know you won’t dare come in here
Big and strong you surely are
Come taste the steel of our swords!

Come ram down our gates
Come fight into our caves!”

“Foolish, I know you are
Ram down your gates, I will
Lure me inside, you did
Now burn all, I surely will

Dreams of paradise I crush
I’ll take you down into fire
Taste my life, taste your hell
I’ll shape your future into fire”

“Fly into fire, come fly into fire”

“Dreams of paradise I crush
I’ll take you down into fire
Taste my life, taste your hell
I’ll shape your future into fire”

“Fly into fire, come fly into fire”
Track Name: Last Encounter
Right on the ravine, he rolled from the walls
Right onto the edge, he fell from the sky
He fell from the sky…

From the city walls, his body rolled down
Like a giant rock, he crushed all around
He crushed all around

Wounded, bleeding, his days are over
Weakened and maddened his rage is growing
Vengeful and sour, will he admit it?
Bitter defeat, end of all

“Rise to fall again from higher
Reach for glory, find delusion
Dream of power, meet destiny
Lost you are now Elsorth”

“I admit that I lost, now steal it!”
“I won’t take your life!”
“I know it, I lost, now kill me!”
“I won’t take the prize that is not mine!”

Right on the ravine, he rolled from the walls
Right onto the edge, he fell from the sky
He fell from the sky…


From the city walls, his body rolled down
Like a giant rock, he crushed all a-round
He crushed all a-round

“Take your sword and kill me”
“I did not come take it”
“Take your sword and kill me”
“I did not come take it”

“Lift your arm and slay me”
“I don’t want this prize”
“Lift your arm and slay me”
“I don’t want this prize”

“Where’s your courage? Bleed me!”
“How could I even fight you?”
Where’s your courage? Bleed me!”
“How could I even fight you?
Could fight you?”

“I admit that I lost, now steal it!”
“I won’t take your life!”
“I know it, I lost, now kill me!”
“I won’t take the prize that is not mine!”

“Lies, don’t take me in, lies!
Worm, your words are evil, lies!
You fell, now you’re lost”

”I should have slain you at first
I should have slain you right away!”
“You fell, now you’re lost”

“Weakened, defeated, why you keep on
Poisoning your own soul with your dull lies?
Hateful and restless, you will leave to
Enter the darkness that grows forever!

“Rise to fall again from higher
Reach for glory, find delusion
Dream of power, meet destiny
Lost you are now Elsorth”

“I admit that I lost, now steal it!”
“I won’t take your life!”
“I know it, I lost, now kill me!”
“I won’t take the prize that is not mine!”

“Lies, don’t take me in, lies!
Worm, your words are evil, lies!
You fell, now you’re lost”

”I should have slain you at first
I should have slain you right away!”
“You fell, now you’re lost”

“I admit that I lost, now steal it!”
“I won’t take your life!”
“I know it, I lost, now kill me!”
“I won’t take the prize that is not mine!”
Track Name: From Story to Legend
Where did she go when she fell down the edge
Is she lost?
Where did she go when the dragon rolled over
Is she lost?

We can now see that the writings were true
We can now see that the prophecy’s right
She will shine, again she’ll shine
Bright she will rise

From story to legend she has now come
Again she’ll shine
Into the abyss she vanished from sight
One day she’ll rise

Angris, from story to Legend
Angris, from story to Legend
Angris, from story to Legend
Angris, from story to Legend

One day she’ll rise again, no one will know
One day she’ll shine again white light
One day her bright glow will light up the sky
One day she’ll light the dawn in red

She’ll shine again

Forged by the skillful hands of Ingur smiths
Long time ago
Bearing the light of salvation
She shone into the dark

We can now see that the writings were true
We can now see that the prophecy’s right
She will shine, again she will shine
Bright she’ll rise

Born from the stone and the fire of Ingur
From naught she rose
Gifted with light and the fate to save men
Like moonlight she shone

Angris, from story to Legend
Angris, from story to Legend
Angris, from story to Legend
Angris, from story to Legend

One day she’ll rise again, no one will know
One day she’ll shine again white light
One day her bright glow will light up the sky
One day she’ll light the dawn in red

She’ll shine again

One day she’ll rise again, no one will know
One day she’ll shine again white light
One day her bright glow will light up the sky
One day she’ll light the dawn in red

She’ll shine again!
