Lyrics

The tales that speak of frost and fire
The Frost Monstreme and the Fire Divine
The frost preserves and the fire destroys
Like pouring rain on the sands of time

I feel it burning and I feel the freeze
The frost, the fire, it burns inpage of me

The tales that speak of frost and fire
The guardian angels and the demons of night
The power preserves and the Beast will destroy us
Like gathering darkness in the circle of light

I feel it burning and I feel the freeze
The frost, the fire, it burns inpage of me, yeah

I feel it burning and I feel the freeze
The frost, the fire, it burns inpage of me

The tales that speak of frost and fire
Tales of all the souls that fell
Words that burn and words that chill us
Like laughter kinding in the heart of Hell

I feel it burning and I feel the freeze
The frost, the fire, it burns inpage of me
It burns inpage of me, it burns inpage of me

This is both the opening track and title track and it was written by Greg Lindstrom.

  1. Frost and Fire (1981)
  2. The Frost Monstreme (2020)
  3. The Fire Divine (2020)

 

Greg’s lyrics on Cirith Ungol’s Frost and Fire are very introspective, and I relate to them a lot. Maybe we’ve been through similar things growing up.

Perry Grayson

Influenced by the late great Fritz Leiber‘s Fafhrd & The Grey Mouse series of tales. I might have stolen “Fire Divine” from a Be Bop Deluxe song. Bill Nelson, another big influence on my writing.

Greg Lindstrom

The song ‘Frost And Fire’ was inspired by Fritz Leiber’s Fafhrd and the Grey Mouser series. One of the stories was entitled “The Frost Monstreme”. I wanted to write a song about that and I thought we needed an element to combat the frost – ‘The Fire Divine’. So, the two opposites of the frost and the fire. I revisited that theme on the ‘Forever Black’ album with those two songs.

This version is probably the same that originally appeared on the 1979 Demo.

(Sept 79) Ouch! An early version of F&F before I grew out of the ‘I think this could use some more synthesizer’ phase.
