This band is meant like a joke from the beginning

R Lewis - 08.03.2013 at 15:55  
Being a joke, is better of many power metal bands nowadays...

You know the difference between this and typical power metal? Many of power metallers trying to be serious during playing songs about unicorns and dragons, when Gloryhammer aren't serious:P

Oh dear , this is a mockery of power metal , i agree i think some power metal bands suck dildos but there are so many that dont and have created something special.

Is this supposed to be serious or parody? I'm confused.
Ellrohir - 09.03.2013 at 00:23  
It is serious parody
Lord_Regnier - 09.03.2013 at 01:23  
Damn this album cover is cheesy.

Isn't power metal a mockery of power metal?

"The Unicorn Invasion Of Dundee"

Obvious HammerFall parody is obvious.

Edit: Now that I've had time to actually listen to this, I like it. It's not as uber cheesy as I would've expected from a power metal parody band.

Anybody think his armor looks like Oblivion Glass armor?

Haha, that was the first thing I noticed and thought to myself: "oh, glass armor!"

About the band itself, power metal (the kind where they sing about fantasy lands and stuff) is supposed to be cheesy in my opinion. I'm not a big fan of it anymore, but I still like listening to it from time to time.

Maybe it's because I used to play Warhammer Fantasy Battles in my early teens, but I thought he looked like a Chaos Warrior!

Really like the song as well. I live not too far from Scotland, so it was pretty cool to hear something actually about Scottish heritage (although it's alternative reality Scottish heritage, so I'm taking what I hear from these guys with a pinch of salt).
