"Barael's Blade" as written by and John D Cronise....
Forged by the Crow-Mage from shards of darkness
Honed by the half-breed to vorpal sharpness

Behold! The bastard's blade

Bane of the demon lord
Slayer of the spider priest
Spiller of the silver blood

Fragments of bore infused with purest steel
A warrior's hand and a wizard's mind to wield
Killer of Lor avenging those accursed
Gathering knowledge, quenching deadly thirst

Behold! The bastard's blade

Bane of the demon lord
Slayer of the spider priest
Spiller of the silver blood

    General CommentThe word "vorpal" comes originally from a poem called "Jabberwocky" by Lewis Caroll in his sequal to "Alice in Wonderland", "Through the Looking Glass". It was later used in D&D, then it spread. I just thought whoever reading this might like to know.

    And just to make a point i dont sit here and analyze this shit, im not sitting here with my compass and calculator like a Tool fan with their next album (no offense, Tool rocks almost as hard as The Sword)

    General CommentWho gives a fuck about the specifics? This lore is clearly founded in some sort of mythology but the song sings of a bastard wielding his blade and mind to fuck up his foes! Fuck yeah, Iron from Ice!
