I write about whatever is foremost on my mind on the day I sit down to write. With "Demon of the Sword" I was heavily into fantasy/adventure books and movies. The Elric Sagas by Michael Moorcock and movies like Conan. After the guys and I finalized the music the lyrics cried out to be written. I didn't hold back with the graffic license here neither (read the lyrics and see)! Ralph
Writing music is what it's all about! You can play gigs with other peoples music, but when the crowd applauds it's the familiarity of the cover songs they're applauding. But when they applaud for your originals; It's you their applauding.
