In English, the album title means "Saga of the Ravens", suggesting Odin's two ravens, Hugin and Munin (Thought and Memory). These two ravens would fly out over the world each day to return every evening and tell what they had seen.

English translations:
1. The grave-beer
2. Two ravens
3. The song of malice
4. The journey to Jotunheim
5. Berserk fury
6. Daughters of the heath
7. The feast
8. The fiddler's box
9. The forest hag
10. Pretty maidens
11. Brage's cup
12. The scourge of the sea

Some versions also come with a re-recording of the track 'Brages Bæger' from the band's "Tvende Ravne" demo as extra track. On those versions, 'Brages Bæger' is track #11, with 'Havets Plage' moving to #12.

Tracks # 4 and 11 (aswell as the bonus track 'Hævnen') are re-recordings of tracks from the 'Svundne Tider' demo.
Tracks # 2 and 10 (aswell as the bonus track 'Brages Bæger') are re-recordings of tracks from the 'Tvende Ravne' demo.
