​The March Of The Varangian Guard

This song is by Turisas and appears on the album Stand Up And Fight (2011).

Original video
The sun rose over the wasteland
As far as the eye can see
Sand fills the vast plains of Serkland
It's vultures jeering at me

But they can circle until they drop dead
I have not come this far
To end, but to pursue my own thread
To join the Varangian Guard!

Guards of glory and of might
Red as blood and black as night
Flies our banner as we march
In the East, for the king of the Greeks

There's men of the cross and the hammer
A few of the moon crescent
Men simply searching for glamour
Some concealing their royal descent

The axe-bearing foreigners they have aptly named us
All we've come from afar
Diversity is what unites us
We are the Varangian Guard!

Guards of glory and of might
Red as blood and black as night
Flies our banner as we march
In the East, for the king of the Greeks

Miklagard, in the second indiction,
In the 6542nd year of the world

To Holmgard and beyond
This is where the winds have us guided
For fame and for gold
We once set sail for these lands unknown

Guards of glory and of might
Red as blood and black as night
Flies our banner as we march
In the East, for the king of the Greeks
