Tolkien/D&D

oh man, ive been buying a lot of cds only to find out the band likes to use tolkien/D&D lyrics. at first i didnt mind when it was a few bands, but now its a lot. Even bands like symphony x are doing this.........

There are the serious offenders like bal sagoth and hammerfall............

why do they do it so much? is it easy to write lyrics cuz all you have to do is write about a warrior/wizard/knight going into a cave/lair/dungeon to fight a wizard/demon/dragon........

when i first got Legacy of Kings by HammerFall i laughed my ass off at the picture on the back of the cd........

its good music, but its too obsessed with one theme......

and finally, i give them credit, because i could never, EVER get in front of an audience and sing stuff like:

we ride fourth for the glory of the king
we shall slay the dragon and claim its gold
warriors raise your swords
mages prepare your spells
we fight for the king!!!

id be really embarrassed if i had to do that...........

Yeah, it's a tragic disease of power metal groups that I think is clinically known as 'Manowarianitis'. Although it's fairly simple to prevent infection, I know of no known effective cure. Well, except maybe "Grow the fuck up, ya stupid fuck!"

if it was illegal to write those lyrics, bal sagoth would have been executed 3 minutes after their debut album.........

are you sure? read this:

HammerFall- A few lines from the song "Legacy of Kings"

"Out on the fields, the full moon is rising
enlightens the name on our shields
blessed with pride

steel on our side, were horsemen of thunder
the ground starts to shake as we ride
side by side

Deep in the night we circle around them, the honor compels us to fight
all for one

all hewed with steel, the toil of the battle are enemies fate will reveal"

oh man that is so silly......it makes me laugh

Yes it is silly and funny and stupid, but no worse then

Meat Hook Sodemy

Butchery my meat hooks sharpened to penetrate - Emasculate, gouging crotches I will eat - Hung upside down, holes punctured through half - chewed - Gristle, debauchery with dead bodies,

can you actually say those lyrics are more intelligent and less stupid, i think not.
