This was our first full length album. After we released our demo "Words Of The Ascended", our music style shifted somewhat to include more dynamics and more complex compositions. "Offerings To The Hunger" was released early 2001 and we signed with a small record label named Teutonic Existence/Firebreath for this album only. In Russia and eastern Europe the album is distributed by CD-Maximum.

Fenris Almkerk, The Netherlands

Established in the Netherlands in 1997, Fenris has a long history of combining thunderous viking metal with scorching black/death metal. At times blindingly fast, sometimes atmospheric, but always melodic and dynamic. With strong roots in Nordic and Germanic mythology, and some of the lyrics in their mother tongue. ... more

Track Name: Offerings To The Hunger
Freya hear our calls, mother of all that lives
in this sacred forest we gather in your name
to plant the seed of prosper and worship thy forgiveness
that the sacrifice we make may bring life through death

The gift

In the darkest depth of emptiness
our offer is swallowed by the lake
foretell the times that lay ahead
as we bring thee lives that you may take

Glorious are thou signs
make your wisdom ours
unchanged by time
we will harvest all

The procession

Chants are sung of praise
only the bog now will see her face
slowly followers move on
in time merely the lake will hear her song
Track Name: As Wolves They Came
In a cold remembrance
steel thrashes its way
the holy relies ending
blood spills of a god dethroned

The last of men in cloth
toil their way into the sea
devoured by the greed of Odin
the waves run red with blood of thee

The warlord weaves his web of death
as pagans sigh their grim last breath
the bloodied red sun is his shield
as the eagle scams the battlefield
Track Name: The Blood Opens Gateways
Into the shadows
of the fallen ones
led by the virtue
to form a thousand suns

The slaughter was unseen
for eyes not yet groomed to such a display
red was the colour of their grief
death was the mother of them all

divine space confined
lords of the ring expelled
born as the fire blazed
feared as the carnage raged

walking further
growing weaker
untold murder
hidden deeper
The blood opens gateways
to shrines of earthly gods
feasting on the crimson
of souls inherent lost
Track Name: Fier Is De Wind
Door hoge golven
daalt de toorn op ons neer

tegen de goden hun verlangen
hebben de stervelingen geen verweer

lang zijn nu de nachten
in het rijk der woeste zee

langs verlaten duistere wegen
neemt donar ons nu mee

fier is de wind, die hier raast
hij neemt het leven, overhaast
geboren uit donder en vuur
neemt hij zielen te laatste uur

zittend op zijn troon
lachend om zijn daden
treurend tracht hij hier
in hoeveel bloed dat hij kan baden
Track Name: Zonen Des Storms
Als een vlaag van vernietiging
brengen zij de schrik over land
herleving van sterven
belichaming van angst

door de zonen des storms
leeft de herinnering voort
verwekt als rijders van wind
dalen zij neder tot ieders poort

Zonen des storms
aan de hemel zo vrij

verdrijf de ziekte die ons velt
en schenk ons de kracht die ons hoger stelt
wij drinken van uwer vocht
en strijden mee op deze laatste tocht
Track Name: Destroyer Of Worlds
Mystic powers control the circle of fear
silently the monster dictates its flow
to where hope becomes nothing
and hate alters everything

come forth, bringer of pain and evil
and uphold my ring of fire
take leave, seeker of flesh and death
thy are the dwellers of endless mire

weakling, your cries mean nothing to me
why do you challenge my infinite strength?
for I have become death
the destroyer of worlds

bound are the hands to grasp you near
silenced is the tongue that speaks the words
you need to hear

our spirits will carry
the memories of truth
our spirits will fade
in moments of time
