Written by Robert Garven. Jim Barraza’s favourite song on the album.
A song about Michael Moorcocks saga Elric of Melniboné.
…No real epic to delve into yet! “Nadsokor” I’m guessing is an attempt at this but in all honestly the song sadly coes off as one of the least interesting ever penned from the band relying too much on a very few basic riffs (by Cirith Ungol standards) to carry the song.
King Fowley, liner notes, Jan 1999
There is a band named after this song. You can check them out at MySpace.
A fanvideo, basically just the song with lyrics added
Mighty warrior raise your sword against the seething chaos horde
Sworn to serve but taught to hate the unseen masters of your fate
Mighty balance in the sky determines who’s the next one to die
The black sword drinks on the souls that fell
And sucks it with it down to hell
