Friday Morning Metal – Nemedian Chronicles – The Savage Sword

What is the best thing in life? If you think it’s to crush your enemies, see them driven before you, and to hear the lamentations of their women, then Nemedian Chronicles is for you!

Straight out of France, Nemedian Chronicles sought out to make an album about Conan and his exploits, and The Savage Sword is a soaring badass power metal track. At five and a half minutes long, it’s a bit beefy, but so is our Cimmerian King, so I guess it works out!

In general the song’s a pretty great power metal track. The drums are pretty big and bombastic, while the guitars chug along for the most part. There’s a solid solo toward the end, right before some very aggro staccato lyrics about how badass Conan is.

The video is primarily a lyric video, but there are a few bits of a big beefy Conan fighting some demon dogs or something. From Hyrkania to Asgard, Conan lays waste to the countryside.

Enjoy the song, then go find the whole album and listen to its 70 minutes of majesty!
