Ogre Battle By Queen

Learn how to play Orge Battle by Queen note by note.

Mercury wrote "Ogre Battle" on guitar (as confirmed by May in several interviews) in 1972. The band did not want to record it for their first album, but rather waited until they could have more studio freedom to do it properly.

 

The ogre-like screams in the middle are Mercury's, and the high harmonies at the end of the chorus hook are sung by Taylor. As the title suggests, it tells the story of a battle between ogres, and features a May guitar solo and sound effects to simulate the sound of a battle. The beginning of the song is the end of the song in reverse including the final gong, which when played backwards at the start of the song, creates the building wave sound.

 

The song is one of Queen's heaviest works. The guitar riff along with Taylor's drumming give it a very "thrash" sound. It was a longtime live favourite.
