about

"The Old Mead Hall" is ISENMOR's drinking song, and we approached it with the mead addled brain that any folk metal fan would expect. Mead of course being a popular drink in Germanic literature (though beer is always a fine choice when mead isn't available), it's our ode to getting drunk and all the singing, partying and debauchery that might have gone with it in an old mead-hall.

lyrics

Tonight we're alive
That can't be said for all
So let's celebrate
In the Old Mead Hall

The fire's warm
And the benches long
The wenches are fair
And there's mead for all

Drink, the drink of the gods
Drink, drink to the fallen ones
In the Old Mead Hall

So raise your horns
Drain them quick
Then drink some more
Grab your favored wench
Hold her tight
And sheathe your sword
Now every man must drink mead
When in this hall
Go, make your boasts
Keep them true
We'll test them all

We'll sing our songs
And we'll make our toasts
To great warriors
And our generous hosts

Men will tell
Of heroes old
Who fought great beasts
And took their gold

The mead may not be
From Heidrun’s teat
But it's good enough
For men to drink

So raise your horns
At every call
And get blind drunk
At the Old Mead Hall
