I've transcribed the lyrics for Wagner Ödegård's two metal releases here and here from the physical copies I own. The lyrics are in some variety of Old Swedish, though, and I know maybe two words of Swedish myself and Google Translate just spits back a bunch of garbled nonsense. So basically I was wondering if someone fluent in Swedish could read though the lyrics and give me a general idea of what they're about, so that the currently empty lyrical themes field for the band could be filled? Thanks!

It's basically some kind of proto-Swedish in the vein of Arckanum. I can read some of it but it might actually be easier for someone speaking Icelandic. However, I found this video where the label has posted (broken) English translations of some lyrics.

Still not completely obvious what it is about but I guess some general "Occultism, death, suffering" would do
