Manowar. Ridiculous. Over the top. Funny. Awesome. From their second album 1984’s “Into Glory Ride”. Ross the Boss of Dictators fame on guitar. This really is fucking epic.
From the so dramatic middle through the end. I love this. There is no irony. No self awareness. Just metal.
Here is a taste of some lyrics.
Fallen brother as I hold closed your side
I fear this wound your last.
Mighty earth now doth drink your blood
And I remember days long past.
Your sacrifice so great, rest now take thy sleep
For you shall not awake, let revenge be sweet.
For when we march, your sword rides with me.
