I don't really know who those people are.
Into battle we ride with Gods by our side
We are strong and not afraid to die
We have an urge to kill and our lust for blood has to be fulfilled
WE´LL FIGHT TILL THE END! And send our enemies straight to Hell!

He's some years older than my father, I think.

Ouch! I remember watching The Partridge Family wen it was in prime time. David Cassidy and brother Shaun are the sons of actor Jack Cassidy. IIRC, Shirley Jones (The Music Man) was the second wife, and not their natural mother. David was quite the heart throb back in the day, along with Davy Jones (The Monkees), Bobby Sherman (TV show Here Come The Brides) and of course Leonard Whiting from Romeo and Juliet. Be still my heart :o :p ;)
At home with a good book and the cat...
