Feuerschwanz Fegefeur

FEUERSCHWANZ Fegefeur | Welcome to the Viking party

‘Fegefeur (Purgatory)’ is the new and best album from Feuerschwanz (Dragontail). The German Metal band founded in 2004 got their first number 1 with their previous album in 2021, ‘Memento Mori’, with their new album they have repeated the feat. Fegefeur is full of hard-hitting and fun music, like Berzerkermode (Frantic Mode)‘, our emotion of the week.

Who is Feuerschwanz?

Feuerschwanz is a German medieval rock and metal band formed back in 2004.

  • They started their career playing lighthearted and fun music with a medieval feel, like jokers. They called it ‘medieval folk comedy‘ 🃏
  • Without losing the humorous side, in the last few years they have taken a turn towards Metal and have become a top band, with great albums like: Methämmer , The Eleventh Commandment and Memento Mori.

A characteristic feature of the band are the “Miezen (Chicks)“, girls dressed up as cat-like creatures 😺 who perform with them in their videos and concerts.

Feuerschwanz consists of 8 members, with Hauptmann Feuerschwanz (Captain Firetail), guitarist and vocalist, being the only founding member who remains in the band.

Feuerschwanz Fegefeur | Includes a new metal anthem ‘Berzerkermode’.

Shortly after releasing their new album ‘Fegefeur (Purgatory)‘, Feuerschwanz once again became number 1 in the German charts, a milestone for a metal band, ratifying their exponential career of the last few years.

No wonder considering that to the good vibes and mood they had, they have added more powerful melodies and some very cool lyrics exploring ancient legends, heroes and battles:

  1. SGFRD Dragonslayer (Siegfried Dragonslayer): With medieval inspiration and great folk metal, Fegefeuer kicks off with a track that talks about the legendary Norse hero Siegfried Dragonslayer.
  2. Bastard von Asgard (Bastard of Asgard): With the beautiful voice of Fabienne Erni from the band Eluveitie, we find a tribute to the ancient Viking gods, which tells the story of when the son of Odin meets the bastard of Loki.
  3. Berzerkermode (Frantic Mode): Our EotW (Emotion of the Week) is an anthem that invites us to a Viking party 🍗, to drink mead and rum without stopping dancing.
  4. Knochenkarussell (Carousel of bones): Represents the dance with death, also known in the medieval world as the ‘Danse Macabre‘. It tells us that whether you are poor or rich, king or beggar, we are all equal in the face of death.
  5. Fegefeuer (Purgatory): The title track of Feuerschwanz’s new album talks about the nine circles of Hell in reference to Dante’s Divine Comedy.
  6. Die Horde (The Horde): A song that will stick with you at first listen, perfect for singing and dancing at their concerts.
  7. Uruk-Hai: The Uruk-Hai are a fictional race from The Lord of the Rings, the foul creatures that Frodo and company fight.
  8. Highlander: Set in Scotland, it tells the story of Connor MacLeod, the ‘Highlander’.
  9. Morrigan: In this case we move to Ireland, specifically to the kingdom of the ancients, the Túatha Dé Danann, whose great queen is the dark goddess Morrigan. He who sees her by night, dies.
  10. Eis & Feuer (Ice and Fire): A song that transports us to Game of Thrones with a fast-paced rhythm.
  11. Valkyren (Valkyries): We end with an epic ballad that brings us closer to the moment when a proud Viking warrior gives his life in battle and is guided by the Valkyries to the god Odin.

On Fegefeuer, the band continues with the fun factor so typical of Feuerschwanz, to which they add great metal, myth, fantasy and legend – a real hit!

Our latest work is all about martial masculinity, Viking wannabes and Valkyries on steroids – to celebrate the latest Berzerker party, probably the most famous asshole in the history of the world, turns into a protein-loaded bodybuilder at the Viking gym!

Feuerschwanz 'Berzerkermode' Lyrics

Berzerkermode ON

Muskeln, Schweiß und Bärte
Sind seit neuestem gefragt
Maskuline Härte
Und die alte Lebensart

Jeder schaut nach Norden
Jeder Schmalhans, jeder Lauch
Plündern, Rauben, Morden
Ist seit heute wieder Brauch

Aufgepumpte Krieger
Kämpfen gegen Winterspeck
Jeder ist ein Sieger
Maskulines Ragnarök

Auf gespannten Adern
Werden Runen tätowiert
Auf der Stirn zwei Rabn
Auf dem Arsch ein Vegvisir

Party hard berserkermode

Party like a viking
Your hammer striking
Thunderbolt and lightning
Party hard berserkermode
Pump like a viking
Your hammer striking
Thunderbolt and lightning
Party hard berserkermode ON

Wir werden zum Berserker
Wenn das Blut im Bizeps pumpt
Schneller, härter stärker
In der Birne bisschen dumm

Wer braucht schon viel Grips
Mit einer breiten Brust aus Stahl
Pumpen wie ein Donnergott
Der Rest ist scheißegal

Schildmaiden, Walküren
Minimales Körperfett
Kettenhemdbikini
Feminines Ragnarök

Auf gespannte Adern
Werden Runen tätowiert
Auf der Stirn zwei Raben
Auf dem Arsch ein Vegvisir

Party like a viking
Your hammer striking
Thunderbolt and lightning
Party hard berserkermode
Pump like a viking
Your hammer striking
Thunderbolt and lightning
Party hard berserkermode
Party hard berserkermode
Party hard berserkermode ON
Berserkermode ON

Party hard berserkermode
Party like a viking
Your hammer striking
Thunderbolt and lightning
Party hard berserkermode
Pump like a viking
Your hammer striking
Thunderbolt and lightning
Party hard berserkermode
Party like a viking
Your hammer striking
Thunderbolt and lightning
Party hard berserkermode
Party hard berserkermode ON

Feuerschwanz 'Berzerkermode' Lyrics in English

Berzerker mode ON

Muscles, sweat and beards
Have been in demand lately
Masculine toughness
And the old way of life

Everyone faces north
Every Schmalhans, every leek
Looting, robbing, killing
It’s the norm again today

Pumped up warriors
Fighting Winter Fat
Everyone is a winner
Masculine Ragnarok

On strained veins
Are runes tattooed
On the forehead two Rabn
On the ass a veg visor

Party hard berserker mode

Party like a viking
Your hammer striking
Thunderbolt and lightning
Party hard berserker mode
Pump like a viking
Your hammer striking
Thunderbolt and lightning
Party hard berserker mode ON

We’re going berserk
When the blood is pumping in the biceps
Faster, harder, stronger
Bit dumb in the pear

Who needs a lot of brains?
With a broad chest of steel
Pump like a thunder god
The rest doesn’t give a shit

Shield Maidens, Valkyries
Minimal body fat
chainmail bikini
Feminine Ragnarok

On strained veins
Are runes tattooed
Two ravens on the forehead
On the ass a veg visor

Party like a viking
Your hammer striking
Thunderbolt and lightning
Party hard berserker mode
Pump like a viking
Your hammer striking
Thunderbolt and lightning
Party hard berserker mode
Party hard berserker mode
Party hard berserker mode ON
Berserk Mode ON

Party hard berserker mode
Party like a viking
Your hammer striking
Thunderbolt and lightning
Party hard berserker mode
Pump like a viking
Your hammer striking
Thunderbolt and lightning
Party hard berserker mode
Party like a viking
Your hammer striking
Thunderbolt and lightning
Party hard berserker mode
Party hard berserker mode ON
