  • The most negative song is Condemned To Hell by Gamma Ray and the most positive There’s Something In The Skies by Dark Moor

Words: drink, sail, sea, pirate, quest
For a band which is part of the pirate metal genre, these words are the perfect representation of pirate-related vocabulary.

Words: die, ride, metal, live, fight
My knowledge of Manowar is a bit lacking but this iconic band seems to give importance to equally iconic words.

Words: holy, ancient, king, wind, land
One of my favorite bands. Their lyrics are epic and the most important words for them represent that.

Words: war, death, army, strike, way
Sabaton writes a lot about real wars and this is reflected in their top words.


but interesting data analysis
