Omen - Ruby Eyes (Of the Serpent) (3:51-ish)
Some squealing guitars open this one then it's into a typical Omen riff (0:12). (0:47) This is where the vocals start. I love J. D. Kimball's vocals, full of warrior pride and sadness which makes him much more believable than a huge number of those other vocalists doing this type of thing. Oh look, a lead (1:49) which goes right into a solo (2:01) and then another one (2:24). That's another thing I like about Omen. Well, everything but the solos really stick in the mind. (2:43) Vocals again, repeating the bridge and chorus and there's that riff at the start again (3:13). If you aren't into this band then you really suck and you're going to have to come to terms with that.
