I wrote this in school today while I was bored. It's supposed to be making fun of Dragonforce and other power metal bands. Tell me what you think.

Titled Army Of Evil:

Standing on the battlefield, gripping our swords
Onward we rise in vain to battle the hordes
Of evil
An army of evil

Enemy after enemy falling in vain
Thrusting our spears as they pay for our pain
Our songs are all the same
An army of evil

Lightning crashes, steel clashes
Rain falls again
Heavens shine and hells dine
They pay for their sins

Chorus:

Mounting our stallions
Waging war on their batallions
Fire and ice raining down upon
Thousands flying into the sun

Enemies across the sea will die for a dream
Swords and shields that millions wield all shatter, all lost
Onward we ride into the light, our quest carries on
Allies ride from side to side, blood stain for the cross
Woooaaaaahhhhh...

(short guitar wankery)

Fallen heroes line the fields, we cry for their loss
Wars are waged for the gods we made, we carry our cross
We crush their army
An army of evil

Standing on the wings of hope, we destroy the beasts
Our mighty axes sharp and firm, prepare for the feast
We crush our opponents balls, they pay for our deceased
The army of evil

Vengeance sworn, and generals mourned
Dragons are slain
Ou axes sing in harmony
We are evil's bane

Chorus

Bridge:

Steel and blood sing in unity
Our soldiers, their horses ride to victory
A final song, a final call, a precursor glory
Woooooaaaaaahhhhh
ONWARD!

(5 minute epic guitar solo, complete with obnoxiously plenty video game noises)

Enemies refuse to fall
We bellow a warrior's call
The sun does not shine tonight
Eclipsed by darkness we fight!

Chorus x a jillion

Outro (guitar wankery)

Fin.

Putting it in a different forum would imply that this is serious. :\

putting it in a different forum would imply that it was a song you had written and would be completely valid.

I actually think it's quite catchy, especially the chorus. Put this in S&L and i'll gladly comment it further.

I wonder if this is a sentiment of power metal bands in general... don't expect to be taken seriously, but for some reason everyone does.

Actually the lyrics aren't that bad. They just don't come off as a joke. But on the other hand well written for most part. And yes, wrong forum. Lyrics and Songwriting I think?

I'm saving these lyrics... But only one reference of 'Steel'? Come on, you need at least 6 for these lyrics to mean anything:P. For example, here is how often steel should arise-

Strike While The Iron Is Hot
Steel Is Strongest So Say We All
And If We All Were Not Brothers Of Metal Would We Fall? - NO -
They Tried To Test Our Spirit
They Tasted Steel Before We Were Done
Grinding Their Bones Into The Dust Of The Past
All Blown Away Like A Shot From A Gun

We Cast Our Lot Together Four Still Stand As One
Here We'll Remain Forever Till Our Kingdoms Won

Brothers Of Metal
We Are Fighting With Power And Steel
Fighting For Metal Metal That's Real
Brothers Of Metal Will Always Be There
Standing Together With Hands In The Air

Let Us Drink To The Power Drink To The Sound
Thunder And Metal Are Shaking The Ground
Drink To Your Brothers Who Are Never To Fall
We're All Brothers Of Metal Here In The Hall

Our Hearts Are Filled With Metal And Masters We Have None
And We Will Die For Metal, Metal Heals My Soul

Brothers Of Metal
We Are Fighting With Power And Steel
Fighting For Metal Metal That's Real
Brothers Of Metal Will Always Be There
Standing Together With Hands In The Air

Let Us Drink To The Power Drink To The Sound
Thunder And Metal Are Shaking The Ground
Drink To Your Brothers Who Are Never To Fall
We're All Brothers Of Metal Here In The Hall

Power metal doesn't wank the whammy that much........
Soon you will sit on the bench
of those who deny I have my soul
You sell a dream you create
Condemned by what you condemned before
Smooth are the words you sing down and high
Underground is your joy your laws

True. I love power metal, and when I first saw this I thought is was real. If I ever get around to getting my DJ staion up it'll have a lot power metal.

I think that could actually be a pretty cool Dragonforce song I went through it in my head with a melody and guitar solos and I think it could potential be a really cool power metal song.

Serious power metal is an oxymoron.

I'll be honest, threadstarter, that actually wasn't bad. Maybe it's just because I was picturing the song in my head as I was reading the lyrics.
