    Look in the distance beyond the castle gates
    The armies of the damned have come
    On the horizon they gather beneath the blood red sun

    A thousand warriors, demons and orcs
    Charging like a tornado
    But they will never know
    That their death awaits in waves below

    Release the Kraken (hey guys)
    The tolling of the iron bell
    Release the Kraken (I’m the Kraken)
    Rising from the depths of hell

    Out on the battlefield, the armies collide
    And hundreds die where they stand
    In screaming agony, the shadow of war across the land
    All across the land

    Now let’s end the fight, it’s time to decide
    Whose blood will finally be spilled
    Our secret weapon, a specter of hate who’s born to kill
    He was born to kill

    Release the Kraken (I’m in a song!)
    A creature of Satanic rage
    Release the Kraken (who wants sandwiches?)
    Bursting from its sunken cave

    Release the Kraken (ding ding ding ding ding ding ding ding)
    Impervious to sword and bow
    Release the Kraken (I’ve got a splinter)
    Death incarnate from below

    Release the Kraken (Oops! I falled over)
    All shall drown in his domain
    Release the Kraken (splishy splashy)
    The harbinger of fear and pain

    That sounds like a really smart kraken. Probably has a PhD.

    I love the song and I just accidentally heard the beginning to both "Gimme Three Steps" and "Release The Kraken" side by side, and I thought it was interesting how much they sound so similar to each other. Love both songs 😁😊😍

    Love how they credited the kraken for the vocals in the description. He did a great job 💙

    This kinda feels like a DnD session, where everyone tries to have a serious adventure, the DM worked really hard to make everything epic and the players lean into it, and then that one guy thinks ´´Hey. Why so serious?´´ and begins with his silly shenanigans.

    I never saw the video before this, so i always thought the kraken was just a middle aged bald man with glasses and a ticked in button up

    It took me many viewings to notice the superpuma and rhinoceratops. Also I don't remember the manticore, but I must have noticed that before, since he's so obvious.
