Using long shaft of pikes in close combat is not effective. A short sword, maces, halberds is much better. Every Landsknecht and Swiss mercenary knows this. The author of the soundtrack to the medieval battle is Italian Michele Labratti (Congenital Deformity, Carbonized Innocents, Grotesque Suturation…). Brutal Death Metal Worship to Brodequin.
