The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is an action role-playing video game developed and published by CD Projekt. The game’s soundtrack is composed by Marcin Przybyłowicz, Mikolai Stroinski and Percival Schuttenbach.
The lyrics of the songs featured in the soundtrack are primarily in the language of the Northern Realms, a fictional kingdom in the world of the Witcher, and in the language of the Nilfgaardian Empire, another fictional kingdom. The lyrics are inspired by Slavic, Baltic and Celtic folklore, and often tell tales of battles, love, loss, and the struggles of the witchers, who are monster hunters.
One of the most prominent tracks in the soundtrack is “The Wolven Storm,” which features lyrics about the battle between the witchers and the fearsome creature known as the Wild Hunt. The song is sung in a mournful and epic tone, capturing the intense and dangerous nature of the witchers’ work.
Another popular track is “Lullaby of Woe,” which tells the story of a mother singing to her child about the difficulties and dangers of life as a witcher. The lyrics paint a picture of the sacrifices made by witchers, who must leave their families behind to protect the world from monsters.
“The Fields of Ard Skellig” is a tranquil and beautiful song that showcases the lush, rolling hills and tranquil waters of the eponymous island in the world of the Witcher. The lyrics describe the peace and beauty of the island, and the longing of the singer to return to it.
