Pointless video post - ‘Natural High’ by Hammerfall

Yes, they’re cheesy; yes, they’re hokey; yes, their video has an armour-clad warrior with glowing red eyes wielding a magic hammer and riding a giant eagle that looks like it came straight off the Colbert Report coming to the defence of damsels-in-distress and fighting a castle full of vampires. And yet, somehow, Hammerfall still manage to be awesome with numbers like ‘Natural High’. Hammerfall was another one of those power-metal bands I uncovered on the FTGG blog, and they still pretty much epitomise the power-metal genre... for better and for worse.
