10/10 The Clansman is a brilliant epic in the vein of Sign of the Cross, moody and atmospheric with haunting Celtic melodies. Inspired by Braveheart (or some guy named William Wallace), The Clansman brings to life the determination and strength of the Scottish clans of old. Blaze sounds soulful as he belts out chants for freedom. The guitars are on fire throughout the song, especially during the harmonized unison sections and stellar guitar solos. Janick Gers finally sounds like he has found his footing next to Dave Murray. The Clansman is another track that stayed in rotation during the “reunion era” and Bruce’s version on Rock in Rio is absolutely phenomenal.
