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

Is this supposed to be serious or parody? I'm confused.

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).
