* HornyVikings: "Raise Your Horns", with the twist being that it refers to ''drinking'' horns ([[HeavyMeta as well as the "horns" gesture made by metal fans]]). In live shows the band drinks a toast to the audience from drinking horns before playing it.

%% commented out as ZeroContextExample, not specific * BloodKnight: A lot of characters in their songs.songs. Arguably the best example is the AxCrazy protagonist of "Where Silent Gods Stand Guard":
-->The last head falls to the ground\\
No one is left alive\\
They thought that they could take me down\\
But it's not my time to die\\
I wipe the blood from my sword\\
And slide it in my belt\\
This is the sweetest of rewards\\
The best rush I have felt!

** "The Fate of Norns" is about a Norse warrior who is mourning his six-year-old son and carrying his child's body to lay him to rest. He's completely heartbroken and his faith in the gods and the Norns is absolutely shattered, so he chooses to commit suicide by lying on his son's funeral pyre. Starts on a downer, ends on a downer.
