The 50 Heaviest Songs Before Black Sabbath: #20-11

13 - Valhalla, “Hard Times” (1969)
First band to name themselves after the warrior’s heaven from Norse mythology? Check. Artwork featuring burning viking ship? Check. Bleak lyrics? Check. Proto-viking-metal, anyone?

WOW!!!!....Who knew????/..... Too bad those lads in STONE GARDEN didn't carry on with the metal cuz that song kicked serious ass!!!! Impressive
