    Here's a great live version of Samarithan:




    "I joined with my destiny, eternally,
    I knew I was born again, an angel to be,
    A vision beyond my dreams called me by name,
    So in devotion I spread my wings, to Heaven I came to stay."

    Although sometimes hard to find I really enjoy listening to the music Moorcock wrote or played or was inspired by him. It really helps me get in the right frame of mind to write.

    The Deep Fix and Hawkwind are the bands he was most known for being in and he wrote "Psychic Wars" for Blue Oyster Cult for the Heavy Metal Soundtrack. The songs and bands he inspired are legion.

    Hawkwind is cool. Veteran of the Psychic Wars is one of my favorite songs off BOC's Fire of Unknown Origin.

    Depends on what I'm writing to be honest... My current WIP follows 3 characters, and each has a rather different feel to their storylines.

    One plotline follows what I consider to be heavily Viking-esque meets Celtish Scotland, (fighting in shield-walls, telling tales of ancient warriors, very brutal clan structure)and I usually write with bands like Amon Amarth, Tyr, and Turisas on in the background.

    The second one is a more pirate character, (sailing along the coastlines, raiding ships, and generally getting up to mischief in ports)
    so this is usually fuelled by a lot of Alestorm. A Lot of Alestorm.

    The third character is much less of a combat role than the other two, as she is a secret revolutionary. (Holding secret meetings, inciting violence amongst peasants, controlling people to do a lot of her dirty work.) So for her it's quite a lot of Rise Against, who I feel carry a lot of revolutionary messages in their songs.

    But I suppose I should give a special mention to Sabaton, who seem to lend themselves to all 3 of my plot-lines.
    If you haven't heard any of these bands and like a good bit of Metal music, go give anyone on this list a listen, you probably won't regret it.

    When my parents were vacationing in Sweden and Poland they were sitting right next to the guys in Sabaton on one of their flights.

    True story.

    GOOD MAN !

    At last, a pagan metalhead ! I mean, Tyr wasn't ever my vibe, and I find Turisas to be mediocre, but Amon Amarth is A+ in my book ;)

    Seen Amon Amarth twice. Great live shows. Both times the encore was Pursuit of Vikings. Everything dark, then you hear the guitar:

    Yup, pretty much can't beat immortal. I'm more of a folk/viking/pagan metal guy anyway.
