    About

    During the siege of Vienna in 1683, the situation for the citizens and the small defending force was desperate. 140000 soldiers of the Ottoman Empire were slowly but surely tearing the cities defences apart by digging a tunnel under the moat and city walls. The plan was to detonate a series of mines under the wall to make it collapse and use the rubble as a walkway into the city itself. It was truly a race against time since nobody knew if the christian coalition called "The Holy League", under the command of the Polish king John III Sobieski would make it in time. They managed to arrive just in time to save Vienna, and the most fearsome of the warriors among them were the Winged Hussars!

    Lyrics

    When the Winged Hussars arrive

    A cry for help in time of need await relief from Holy League
    60 days of siege outnumbered and weak
    Sent a message to the sky wounded soldiers left to die
    Will they hold the wall or will the city fall

    Dedication
    Dedication
    They're outnumbered 15 to one
    And the battle's begun

    And the Winged Hussars arrive
    Coming down the mountainside
    Let the Winged Hussars arrive
    Coming down they turn the tide

    As the days are passing by and as the dead are piling high
    No escape and no salvation
    Trenches to explosive halls are buried deep beneath the walls
    Plant the charges there and watch the city fear

    Desperation
    Desperation
    It's a desperate race against the mine
    And a race against time

    And the Winged Hussars arrive
    Coming down the mountainside
    Let the Winged Hussars arrive
    Coming down they turn the tide

    Cannonballs are coming down from the sky
    Janissaries are you ready to die
    We will seek our vengeance eye for an eye

    You'll be stopped upon the steps of our gate
    On this field you're only facing our hate
    But back home the sultan's sealing your fate

    We remember
    In September
    That's the night Vienna was freed
    We made the enemies bleed

    And the Winged Hussars arrived!
    (Storm clouds fire and steel
    Death from above made the enemy kneel)
    Coming down the mountainside
    (Fighting power and grace
    Death from above it's an army of wings)
    Then the Winged Hussars arrived
    (Storm clouds fire and steel
    Death from above made the enemy kneel)
    Coming down they turned the tide
    (Fighting power and grace
    Death from above it's an army of wings) [X2]

    We remember
    In September
    When the Winged Hussars arrived
