Veteran’s Day Warrior Metal Playlist


Happy Veteran’s Day! I just want to issue a hearty thank you to all the brave warriors who have risked their lives to keep us safe and free.

Yet today our veterans are often discarded by society after their courageous sacrifice. Over 1.4 million veterans are at risk of becoming homeless. There are 300,000 homeless veterans sleeping on the streets and this number is rising. An estimated 460,000 veterans suffer from PTSD. They have an increased risk of getting a divorce. And in the time it takes you to watch the first video below – somewhere, a veteran took their own life.

So I put together this metal list to celebrate the brave sacrifice of our vets. Some of the songs are meaningful, others are just fun and uplifting. The first one is a very powerful video about the problems facing veterans today.

Death in battle is not a failure, but a study in triumph of the spirit. May the warriors of our time find their final resting place in Valhalla, where they will be remembered and honored until the end of time.

AUTHOR’S NOTE: I’m not saying these are the best songs for the subject. Just my opinion. Also, someone complained that I added Five Finger Death Punch, but the video itself actually addresses the problems faced by today’s vets better than anything other music video I’ve seen, so it deserves to be on here.



Five Finger Death Punch – Wrong Side of Heaven
Judas Priest – Halls of Valhalla
Ensiferum – In My Sword I Trust
Turisas – Stand Up And Fight
Amon Amarth – War of the Gods
Ensiferum – Victory Song
Orden Ogan – The Things We Believe In
Motorhead – Dogs of War
Sister Sin – 24-7
Tengger Cavalry – Hero
Amon Amarth Twilight Of The Thunder God
Amon Amarth – Tattered Banners And Bloody Flags
Judas Priest – One shot at glory
Tyr – By The Sword in my Hand
Amon Amarth – The Hero
Metallica – The Day That Never Comes
Iron Maiden – The Trooper
Kataklysm – The Ambassador of Pain
Amon Amarth – Warriors Of The North
Fortress – Victory or Valhalla
Manowar – Warriors of the World United
Sabaton – The Price of a Mile

  2. KK, just added it. It’s really sad how we treat the people who fight and risk their lives for us in this country. There is also still much that isn’t understood about PTSD. My grandpa had it after WWII and my uncle still struggles with it, even though he fought in Vietnam forever ago.
