Hey I'm just wondering is there anyone who has a translation of their lyrics? I don't really worry about them but I'm curious. I try searching the interweb but I can only find one song... an ENGLISH song.

My folkstorm booklet is also in English as is my Sorcery... booklet. Both English songs on Horizons have English lyrics in the booklet as well.

I listen to alot of music that is sung in foreign language such as Negura Bunget. I'm tempted myself to look into the translation but I find it much more intriguing and mysterious by not doing so but eventually my curiosity might get the best if me. Just the sound whatever diction from certain languages is very cool to me. I find this different from looking at the lyric sheet of alot of death metal in English which just seems like an afterthought because the vocals in that genre are to give a sense of brutality. This is just one reason why I like bm better than dm.

Not all versions of Temnozor CD's have English translations, though. I have the Stellar Winter versions of "Sorcery" and "Horizons" and "Sorcery" has English translations of the lyrics while "Horizons" has no printed lyrics at all (Russian or English). Meanwhile I have the CD-Maximum version of "Folkstorm" which only has the lyrics in the language in which they were sung.

Well I'm not really able to get the CDs so could someone direct me to a place where I can see the translations online? Or better yet, if you have the ability, modify the lyrics on here for the translations?

Yeah lyrics, especially folk/pagan/black metal lyrics in languages other than English tend to enhance the overall feel of the album, they make it more authentic when sung in the native language of the band. Negura Bunget's lyrics I can understand, obviously, (and they're quite obscure, hard to understand Romanian at that) but Russian black metal sung in Russian is awesome (I don't speak Russian yet).
