The Classic: Grave Digger - Excalibur
There is no greater sword than Excalibur, the sword of King Arthur, so obviously, it needs a killer anthem. Enter the German power metal band Grave Digger, a band that has always had an eye for the medieval era. With a powerful and epic chorus, and some impeccable guitar work from Uwe Lulis, "Excalibur" emerged as a mighty force that rolled over anyone who dare oppose it. A fantastic power metal song that still gives me shivers in every inch of my body.
The Newcomer: Pain - Call Me
Yes, it is corny. Yes, it is uncomfortable. And yes, the guys who are responsible for this song might regret their decisions. However, it is hard to ignore that "Call Me" is a hell of a song, with amazing riffs, an incredibly catchy chorus, and a Joakim Brodén at his best, even if he does not sing about war. And if the song is not to your liking, then maybe the video is more your style. Easily the funniest video of this year. Puppet Tägtgren and Joakim Puppetén are simply the best.
Check out my review of the album this song is from, "Coming Home"
