Ogre Battle is a track from Queen's second album, Queen II and was written by Freddie Mercury. Mercury wrote "Ogre Battle" on guitar (as confirmed by Brian May in several interviews) in 1972. The band didn't 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 Roger Taylor. Read more on Last.fm.
