Highlord: The Hand of God (Berserk References Galore)
« on: February 02, 2011, 09:32:05 PM »
Search turned up nothing, though its possible I missed it.

Friend sent me a link of a band (therein Highlord) that has made quite an obvious Berserk homage.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DYdXWRNCg2Y

For those who cannot stomach metal/(or understand European "Fishmaster" grunting) here are the lyrics.

this world man's destiny is controlled
By some transcendental entity or law
At least man knows that he has no control
Over his own will

On the day the hawk fell
You saw your love betrayed
A new order to enslave the world
And for you a new battle to fight

[BRIDGE]
We are the darkness, your own race
We taste the flesh of your comrades
No, I won't surrender
Your heart is ours, your blood is ours
The brand will grant you no escape

Angels or demons? Apostles of death

[CHORUS1]
Bloody trails veil my dreams
By the sword of the Berserk
But I know I will be free
From the demons that hunt my soul

On the road you walk in silence
There's only darkness by your side
The roots of evil grow and thrive
In the world that mankind's created
The traitor was your brother
Once he led you to the stars
Now you wield your sword in battle
Just to claim your vengeance in blood

[BRIDGE]

The world has been damned, do we have to die?

[CHORUS1]

[CHORUS2]
We have only one chance
Fighting or dying
In this burning hell called earth
Last son of the hand of God
Traitor of love...
You married hate to my soul...

"I am the flesh....
Ambrosia for the immortal ones"
Come into my flame...
My violent desire
"You tear apart...
The human pleasure from it's cradle"
I order your ruin...
Killer of passions...
"Better death
Than your damned fire"
I devour your essence...
On your body my perversion
"Better the sword
Than your claws on my breast"
Settle your mortal senses
To my cruel will...

Nice find though Power Metal fits Berserk like a bulldozer in Paris Hilton's ass.
Berserk isn't really "dark fantasy" either. It's plain fantasy
Miura has been very protective of Berserk

I thought it would be a music greatly referencing Berserk here and there by the title, but it turned out more than that, it's actualy a "Berserk song". Haha. Nice. I wonder if their listeners get it.


I personally don't think metal would fit as soundtrack for a Berserk movie/animation, but inspired songs are cool. It does fit with the general theme, of course.
