Man Of War

Man Of War – Lyrics

Music by: Brodén Text by: Brodén / Sundström


Masters of the wind
Metal warriors number one
Sleipnir met the king of kings
Where all men play on ten
It’s a wrath of Thor
They are men at war
The sign of the hammer’s our guide
It’s a metal daze
It’s the outlaws ways
Return of the warlord at last

Blood of the king’s defender
King of the gods of war

With a heart of steel
And hell on wheels
The kings of metal lead us
It’s the king of kings
The crown and ring

Carry on
As the kingdom come

It’s a call to arms
Our battle hymns
Today is a good day to die
Sons of Odin call
In Valhalla’s hall
The blood of my enemies flow

Historic fact:

Album Info:


The idea for HEROES started already when we wrote the lyrics for the 2010 album Coat of Arms. By then we already had the idea that one day we should write an album where we take the focus away from the big battles and focus more on the individuals who go beyond the call of duty, do something extraordinary thus earning the title ”hero”.

We already saved such stories since the time for Coat of Arms and the majority of the songs on this album was actually inspired by ideas sent in by fans like you.

The pressure was huge on us to follow up the success of Carolus Rex which was a milestone in our career. With some fresh blood in the band we also felt that no shadow must fall on our new recruits. We want to look forward and not get stuck in the past.

Sitting here writing the final words for the booklet we can be proud of what we achieved.

Mission accomplished.

This is ”Heroes”
