Cry of the Black Birds lyrics


Cry of the Black Birds


Raise your swords up high
See the black birds fly
Let them hear your rage
Show no fear

Attack!

Charge your horses across the fields
Together we ride into destiny
Have no fear of death when it's your time
Oden will bring us home when we die

The ground trembles under us as we make our thunder charge
The pounding hooves strikes blinding fear into their hearts
Our helmets shine in the sun as we near their wall of shields
Some of them turn and run when they hear our frenzied screams

Draw your swords to strike
Hear the black birds cry
Let them feel your hate
Show no fear

Charge your horses across the fields
Together we ride into destiny
Have no fear of death when it's your time
Oden will bring us home when we die

The enemies are in disarray ride them down as they run
Send them to their violent graves, don't spare anyone
Dead and wounded lie all around see the pain in their eyes
Over the field an eerie sound, as we hear the raven's cry

Through all my salty, wave-lashed exploits around the Baltic, and all booty won there by my blade and fist, never have my eyes beheld such a barbaric video quality.

Good thing the song is so insanely captivating.

Best band. Best song.

this is what should be called "epic metal", not that pathetic sissy-twingy rock of manowar

Hey Metal Blade Records, can't you upload a higher definition version of the video? The original recording must have been at least 576i, so can't you also put up a 480p or 720p video? This song and video deserves better than 240p! Thanks.

I'll never forget when this first came out. I was 15 years old and watching this music video on fuse cuz of all the hype I had heard about this band and their album online. My dad walks by during their head banging in unison and says "hey it's the whirly birds" about as casual as he could and I burst out laughing and could never listen to this song again without thinking of that.

Needs an HD re-up, or at least 480p so that the music isn't so low quality

The swirling motion of their hair will suck out a lesser mans soul should he wander to close.

I got to see them this past Friday and it was awesome. I had to jump into the pits for this and Guardians of Asgard. I can safely say that I can happily retire from active moshing after having done so to those two songs.

My brother (same age as me) got to go see them in concert. I wanted to go and was told that I couldn't "because I'm a girl".
