Hero of War – Rise Against

A modern ayre in every sense I could understand, Hero of War is a simple song about a man who joins the Army and sees (and participates in) some of the horrors that take place abroad. It is not a lighthearted song in the slightest, but is still simple musically – with the guitar underlining every word, much like Campion’s lute work. It’s fascinating how a simple tale can evoke so much more emotion by adding a repeating riff.
