Songfacts®:

  • This song is about the arrival of Christianity to Scandinavia.
  • This was the first and last song that Bathory made a video clip for. Supposedly Quorthon paid $5,000 to make the clip, filming over 60 hours of footage. This footage was reduced to 18 minutes and did not follow the original idea, much to Quorthon's dismay. >>
