Gloryhammer Fear That Unicorns May Enact a Coup in Scotland
Gloryhammer’s video for “The Unicorn Invasion of Dundee” is pretty bad. Hell, the song is pretty bad, too. Still, it seems noteworthy, because the British power metal band has taken the genre to its logical conclusion — and I do mean conclusion. Now that someone has actually written and recorded lyrics about “an army of undead unicorns,” there is no place else for power metal to go. Some other tune might be as bizarre and fantastical as “The Unicorn Invasion of Dundee,” but no other tune can ever be as bizarre and fantastical as “The Unicorn Invasion of Dundee.” Unless maybe it was about how Lars Ulrich is the best drummer in metal. But who the fuck can say that with a straight face?
“The Unicorn Invasion of Dundee” appears on Gloryhammer’s Tales From the Kingdom of Fife, which is out now on Napalm.
