history + metal

Recently, I've decided I'd attempt combine two of my favorite things: history and metal.

Does anyone know of any bands that talk about any historical events in their lyrics? If so, what are some specific songs? If you could post the lyrics as a comment, it'd be greatly appreciated.

The only bands I can think of are Iced Earth and Iron Maiden. I heard Nevermore does this as well, but I've just gotten into them so I have no idea what songs to look into.

Thanks in advance! \m/
