Mighty warrior raise your sword against the seething chaos horde
Sworn to serve but taught to hate the unseen masters of your fate


Mighty balance in the sky determines who’s the next one to die
The black sword drinks on the souls that fell
And sucks it with it down to hell

Written by Robert Garven. Jim Barraza’s favourite song on the album.

There is a band named after this song. You can check them out at MySpace.

Nadsokor (Album version)

From release One Foot In Hell (1986/99).

A song about Michael Moorcocks saga Elric of Melniboné.

…No real epic to delve into yet! “Nadsokor” I’m guessing is an attempt at this but in all honestly the song sadly coes off as one of the least interesting ever penned from the band relying too much on a very few basic riffs (by Cirith Ungol standards) to carry the song.

King Fowley, liner notes, Jan 1999


A fanvideo, basically just the song with lyrics added

This song rocks! This guy obviously didn’t have his coffee that day.

Couldn’t disagree more with Fowley here. Nadsokor is awesome and with no doubt belongs to the best half of this album.

I’m btw very curious how the original version sounds like. Hope it will be a bonustrack on the new re-release. Rob said about the final album:
“You didn’t hear the solo’s of Jerry’s tat were cut on OFIH or the unbelievable four part background vocals I did on ‘Nadsokor’ that never made it to the record. I also feel that it was mixed kind of flat.”


Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
