Music and D&D

October 22, 2012

In response to Dyson Logos’s recent post about his supposedly heretical musical tastes, and others’ comments on the topic, here is the only piece of music that I think is 100% pure, distilled D&D. The lyrics are in Swedish, but all you need to know is that it’s a song about a desperate fight in a forest between two axe-wielding dwarves (the eponymous Drafur and Gildur) and a bunch of trolls. I think you’ll get the gist. Enjoy!

      Glad you enjoyed it! I’ve been a fan of Hedningarna for a long time. It’s nice to find an excuse to spread the word.

    Sounds a bit like the Horslips from Ireland. They did a song about CuChullan called Djarg Doom (or ‘Red Doom’) – or something like that…..mind you there are probably quite a few musical efforts at fantasy stories, including Led Zeppelin’s terrible lyrics about Golem, and then there’s Hawkwind’s ‘Chronicles of the black sword’ based on Moorcock’s Elric books. And as far as Faeire Wood is concerned – Planet Gong were always a great inspiration.

      Ah, the green/invisible planet Gong! Always an inspiration for me too. Would you like some tea?
