The way the Scots would attack was to play the pipes and drums as we marched towards the enemy and they would put the berserkers in the front of the line facing the enemy. These typically were men who had lost sons or fathers to the enemy and were mad with grief. This is the men that the enemy would face first. It would scare the crap out of them because of the ferocity of their fighting due to the blood rage.
Seeing these things on a battlefield are very powerful last images.
