FOR DEATH AND GLORY (2005)
Los orígenes del grupo hay que buscarlos en 1998 en la banda Cerberus, pero es a partir de 2002 cuando oficialmente nace Thronar, una banda que podemos encuadrar, como a ellos mismos anuncian como Battle metal. El sonido es del todo épico y recoge de la mejor manera posible el fragor de la batalla. Su música tiene un componente contundente y brutal de la mano de la batería y las voces agresivas, casi guturales, rozando el death melódico. A esta parte más agresiva se enfrenta otra mucho más atmosférica de la mano de unos teclados cargados de épica, unos buenos riffs de guitarra en donde predomina la melodía y una aire folk que impregna todo el álbum. Bandas como Amon Amartth se antojan como clara influencia en su música, si bien Thronar se encauzan más hacia la melodía y un punto por debajo en cuanto a agresividad. En su propuesta se recrea un ambiente de batallas épicas e históricas y resulta imposible abstraerse de esta sensación a lo largo de todo el álbum, incluso este ambiente está presente en los dos temas instrumentales. (8,1).



1. To Kill and Be King 06:34
 We live, we grow stronger and then we fight

Kill, for a new life, kill and be king
Kill, a second chance, kill and be king

The dream, so far away, all that is left is hate

Kill, they can feel the rope, kill and be king
Kill, there is no other way, kill and be king

This is what we are trained for
This is our new life
We have escaped the scaffold
We now serve the skull

And we will fight, where others fall
In every war, Thronar prevails
Our enemies, face to the ground
Their heads will roll, their blood will flow

We live, we grow stronger and then we fight

Kill, for a new life, kill and be king
Kill, there is no other way, kill and be king

This is what we are trained for
This is our new life
We have escaped the scaffold
We now serve the skull

Even the legions of the dark lord fear when they face us in battle

And we will fight, where others fall
In every war, Thronar prevails
Our enemies, face to the ground
Their heads will roll, their blood will flow

This is what we are, this is what we do
And this is what we are made for
This is what we have become
2. Gift from the Gods 06:07  
Running over landscapes of ice and snow
Hiding the sword that carries the prophecy
My mind is full of grief and despair
I am maybe the only one left to destroy 
To destroy them all

I took the sword from my dying father's hand
His last words: "Run my son, the prophecy will prevail"

The warrior approached the forest of ice
And so the prophecy began
For it is written that a warrior will find
The way to avenge his family and brothers
And brothers in battle

I took the sword from my dying father's hand
His last words: "Run my son, the prophecy will prevail"

Deep in the forest of ice lies a valley
In the centre lies a crystal temple
The warrior knew this was a gateway to the gods
And so he entered the crystal temple

Creator of solid steel
Bless the coming battle
I promise you a great war
I will fight without fear

Creator of solid steel
Bless the coming battle
I promise you a great war
I will fight without fear
Without fear

The warrior's prayers were answered
At the foot of the crystal temple hundreds of warriors gathered
All drawn here by the prophecy of a great warrior who would lead them into a victory of vengeance
Brothers in arms, I promised the gods a great war
They follow us with great expectations and are anxious for the coming battle

We will not rest until Gorodar's head
Is nailed to our wall of battle trophies
Every enemy will regret, will regret their sins
Their death will not be without pain, without pain

The warrior approached the forest of ice
And so the prophecy began
For it is written that a warrior will find
The way to avenge his family and brothers
And brothers in battle

I took the sword from my dying father's hand
His last words: "Run my son, the prophecy will prevail"
3. The Hunt for Vengeance 05:08
Like shadows they moved, he had broken his oath
His new name: "He Who Knows No Fear"
Now a warrior of Shara Kondor
Crimnor Valora was no more

You will wear the colour of the night to honour your forefathers
You are Shara Kondor, strong and brave
I will wear the colour of the night to honour my forefathers
I am Shara Kondor, strong and brave

Like shadows they moved, he had broken his oath
His new name: "He Who Knows No Fear"
Now a warrior of Shara Kondor
Crimnor Valora was no more

Born for battle, I will die in battle
Born for battle, I will die in battle

After my death a cheering crowd will welcome me in the halls of the creator of steel
They will raise their pints and bless me for my glorious battles

Born for battle, I will die in battle
Born for battle, I will die in battle

Lord of steel, may this last battle be one to remember
I will die laughing and without fear

Under another name, under another god
They hunted and destroyed Gorodar
Outnumbered by far they attacked in the night
A battle won by pure strength

This will be my last battle
Before I enter the halls of heroes
Where a cheering crowd will welcome me 
And praise my glorious death

Enter the halls of heroes
Praise my glorious death

Born for battle, I will die in battle
Born for battle, I will die in battle

After my death a cheering crowd will welcome me in the halls of the creator of steel
They will raise their pints and bless me for my glorious battles

Born for battle, I will die for battle
Born for battle, I will die for battle

Lord of steel, may this last battle be one to remember
I will die laughing and without fear
4. Crimnor Valora 04:20
If I die in the battle to come
My death will be worth a great song
The crowds will shout my name
Commander of the flames
A force of pure rage
The crowds will shout my name

It doesn't matter how I die, I die for my king
I do not care how I die, I die for the crowds
It doesn't matter how I die, I die for my king
I do not care how I die, I die for the crowds

I am the symbol from the power of my kingdom
My fame reaches many lands
I am Crimnor the warrior
I am the nearest thing to death you will find
My battles are legends to come
I am Crimnor the gladiator

It doesn't matter how I die, I die for my king
I do not care how I die, I die for the crowds
It doesn't matter how I die, I die for my king
I do not care how I die, I die for the crowds

Face me, behold the eyes of death
You are nothing, nothing but another victory
Hail to Crimnor
He spares no man
Face him, behold the eyes of death
You are nothing, nothing but another victory
His flaming sword will light the sky
His battle-axe is the last thing you will see

I am the symbol from the power of my kingdom
My fame reaches many lands
I am Crimnor the warrior
I am the nearest thing to death you will find
My battles are legends to come
I am Crimnor the gladiator

It doesn't matter how I die, I die for my king
I do not care how I die, I die for the crowds
It doesn't matter how I die, I die for my king
I do not care how I die, I die for the crowds
5. Dainar's Last Rites 01:16  instrumental
6. For Death & Glory 07:25
 Hail to ones who ride by our side
Death to the ones who still deny
Now that the lands are free at last
We hunt down those who praise the past
We hunt down those who praise the past

Our banners showing the fearful skull unchanged in time
From Skullmount we ride
The beginning of an invasion, the time to strike is now
Shara Kondor, Palantia, and Lore now united
Together they strike back
The beginning of an invasion, the time to strike is now

For death, for death and glory
For death, for death and glory

We believe in the power of steel
Times will change, we'll break the seal
Together we ride deep in the night
Armed with steel for one last fight
Armed with steel for one last fight

Through the wasted lands of Kahadran, we arrived at last
Fharadahr will fall tonight, storm the black walls
Through the shattered gates we ride
Leaving ruins behind, never to rebuild
Fharadahr will fall tonight, storm the black walls

We come over land and sail over sea
The time to strike is now
Three hundred and fifty ships, ten thousand men strong
The time to strike is now

At the horizon thousands of banners rise
Thronar's skull, the white wolf of Lore and the painted faces of Shara Kondor
A view of tremendous fear

Hail to ones who ride by our side
Death to the ones who still deny
Now that the lands are free at last
We hunt down those who praise the past
We hunt down those who praise the past

Our banners showing the fearful skull unchanged in time
From Skullmount we come
The beginning of an invasion, the time to strike is now
Shara Kondor, Palantia, and Lore now united
Together they strike back
The beginning of an invasion, the time to strike is now

For death, for death and glory
For death, for death and glory
7. Screams of Thunder 05:22
Serving king nor queen
Living under no law except our own
Fighting to revenge our clans
Serving the one who grants us the secret of steel

The sound of clashing hammers filled the morning red sky
Blacksmiths working day and night

If we die it battle it's the will of the gods
Our hearts filled with nothing but pride
Led by the one bonded to the blade
We feel our ancestors looking down from the stars
Screams of thunder after every slain foe
Cursed are the ones who ignore our legions

Serving king nor queen
Living under no law except our own
Fighting to revenge our clans
Serving the one who grants us the secret of steel

In his dreams a spirit visits the One (bonded to the blade)
A blood red scar reveals his cause of death

Samuel: 
"Follow the morning sun for three days, chosen one
For there you will find the inhabitants of Lore
These great archers can help you reach your goal
They share your quest for revenge"

The next morning we set foot to the pathless woods
The spirit's words still fresh in our minds

"Follow the morning sun for three days, chosen one
For there you will find the inhabitants of Lore
These great archers can help you reach your goal
They share your quest for revenge"

Guided by wolves we resumed our journey 
We resumed our journey to the pathless woods
There a blood oath was taken
A blood oath was taken
Two became one
Two became one
A blood oath was taken
Two became one

Guided by wolves we resumed our journey 
We resumed our journey to the pathless woods
There a blood oath was taken
A blood oath was taken
Two became one
Two became one
A blood oath was taken
Two became one

We drink before the battle
We drink to forget
We drink to the fallen heroes, who fought here at our side
Burning water, take our fears away
One last feast before we enter the battlefield

Serving king nor queen
Living under no law except our own
8. Where Sword, Axe and Bow Strike Together 07:01
 Thronar, never taken by a mortal soul
Now, revelation of prophecy is coming
Ancient omens are revealing
Light is diminishing and danger is coming
The danger manifests itself as a powerful army
An army fighting under the hand of Sandrier,
The first lieutenant of Gorodar
The traitor raised in the flaming towers

United under the banner of Thronar
A union for freedom and revenge
Three mighty weapons forged for battle
A union for the freedom of lands

United under the banner of Thronar
A union for freedom and revenge
Three mighty weapons forged for battle
A union for the freedom of lands

Strong magic has wiped all light gone
Madness burns itself into the heads of brave men
But three nations shall remain courageous
Their purpose is to impale Sandrier

Thronar, close to be taken
Fighting 'til the last man

A fight becoming a legend
Subject of songs never fading in time
Bravery and bloodshed go hand in hand
When the sword, axe and bow are killing

Where sword, axe and bow strike together
The glorious battles of the united lands
Where sword, axe and bow strike together
The glorious battles of the united lands

Where sword, axe and bow strike together
The glorious battles of the united lands
Where sword, axe and bow strike together
The glorious battles of the united lands

Thronar, close to be taken
Fighting 'til the last man

On the war-stricken lands, the sight of beheaded corpses and the smell of rotting flesh 
Show the immense bloodshed that has ravaged over Palantia
In the middle Thronar stands, victorious and strong as ever
This victory shall become the subject of tale and song
This mighty army we honour
Wielding the weapons of true craftmanship
The sword, axe and bow

Where sword, axe and bow strike together
The glorious battles of the united lands
Where sword, axe and bow strike together
The glorious battles of the united lands

Where sword, axe and bow strike together
The glorious battles of the united lands
Where sword, axe and bow strike together
The glorious battles of the united lands

And so it ended, the siege of Thronar
The end of a battle, the dawn of a new age
The alliance of the three armies
The greatest force ever witnessed by men
The One, Famien, and Aradas will never be forgotten
