  STEVE GÖLDBY'S HEAVY METAL CHRONICLES

steve goldby




Lo, there do I see my father
Lo, there do I see my mother
And my sisters and my brothers
Lo, there do I see the line of my people
Back to the beginning
Lo, they do call to me
They bid me take my place among them
In the halls of Valhalla
Where the brave may live
Forever...
