The Pentagram the sign of our war a force of nature I chose my side lifetimes ago forged in my own blood driven by a thirst for knowledge guided by the pentagram I’ve got a place in Hell with Satan as my right hand and I pray for war to the pentagram Driven to the extreme feeding of hatred from the ground Inspecting the mirror picking up broken shards creating the pentagram That’s the way your life will be with a sworn allegiance to the pentagram I chose this way, this force of nature, the pentagram
Hljóðs bið ek allar helgar kindir, meiri ok minni mögu Heimdallar Ek man jötna ár um borna, þá er forðum mik fœdda höfðu Til Odin for seier og makt til árs ok friðar til vorder og vetter til gamle kjente Fra volver, fra markens grøde fra kosmos, fra Jord og Hav fra Ymes blod, Jotunskalle Gifu, et offer til meg sjæl brennende ønske om Líf og Lífþrase Gjømt i holtet, finner ingen tavle ved Yggdrasill, den gamle ask det skjelver i løvet
A desolate planet cleansed of the human disease this has become my dream I travel to worlds unknown only to find myself staring back into the same old reflection I cry for the loss of humanity the stars will witness my rebirth I paint beautiful pictures in my mind paintings of all the wonders of the world where mankind is nothing but dust upon the gound
Østenfor sol, og vestenfor måne veien gjennom berget, bak tid og rom Dype remmer i rødt og svart for hælvete, setter hardt mot hardt nå ser jeg skauen i månelys gir etter for natta i kuldegys Nåde for rett, mot vest, mot vest! drømmetale, nakendans Ville vetter og knokkelsang forkulla lik og galgemann ormer gnager, stormer raser Fanfarer, fakler i Norges land gamle guder, tro og sagn Yggdrasill, Vile og Ve!
Torner og glemte guder tanker vekkes til live svarte sjeler, fremmed blod Sanger om nordisk magi galdre, arvet av Valfar lange netter, iskaldt mørke Jeg står under mørk himmel ensom, men ikke aleine omgitt av vorder og vetter skogens liv, skogens sjel Runer og flammer jeg blir svar skyldig i natt tornekrans
I’m the true force of darkness I’m the true force of light I’m the voice inside your head I’m the whisper in the night Where do we go when even stars burn out? Where can we go when even stars burn out? Reconcile your blood with virtue Look towards the other past


"Based on the classic Norwegian Black Metal. Somewhere between
Burzum, Immortal and Darkthrone MINNERIKET combines epic
guitar and synth moments with cold, raging passages"
- Legacy Magazine

"The atmosphere herein created is indescribably profound and dark.This is probably one of the most dark albums I have heard in a long time, for the sake of the desolation that it creates in my mind. Not a living thing in sight, just the darkness, as I walk through corridors of bleakness watching my back at every turn.The epitome of Ambient/Black Metal"
- Absit-Omen Webzine

"Minneriket creates another recording that remains true to the raw and atmospheric style of ambient black metal from their previous release [...] In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Minneriket and if you are a fan of ambient black metal, you should check out this album."
- OccultBlackMetalZine

"Che volere di più nel 2016? Nostalgico."
