Who knew that if you set a bad D&D campaign to music, the result would be something pretty good? It’s not clear what the band Rhapsody had been drinking when they created Enchanted Lands, Vol. 2: The Dark Secret Album, but I’m glad they did. A hardy band of adventurers set out to kill “Nekron, the demon king” in a cycle of heavy metal songs:
It was a good time for all creatures of the earth,
But fate decreed that the dark prophecy of a demonknight
Could bring a tragic end to this peace
Scarring their lives forever!
If you can bring yourself to stop giggling, you might notice that the music is pretty good. It’s got some nice heavy rhythms, good guitar riffs, a good vocalist. The photoshopped castle with the lightning effects in the music video is definitely a highlight. And is that … is that … Christopher Lee?
