Yindi Halda - Enjoy Eternal Bliss (2007)




Biography

Yndi Halda is a post-rock band from Canterbury, United Kingdom. 'Yndi Halda' is Old Norse for "Enjoy Eternal Bliss", also the name of their "self-titled" debut. The band's music is characterized by expansive, cinematic pieces that have seen the group compared to modern classical and post rock - however, Yndi Halda's work is usually considered more thematically optimistic or hopeful, and more song-based than artists of those genres.


History

Comprising of members Jack Lambert (guitar), Brendan Grieve (bass), Daniel Neal (violin), Oliver Newton (drums, tamborine) and James Vella (guitar, glockenspiel and lapsteel), the band formed in 2001 while all of the members were still in school. In the summer of 2005, they began recording the three tracks that made up their debut release Enjoy Eternal Bliss (EP), which was finished in the autumn of that year. A fourth track, Illuminate My Heart, My Darling, was recorded for the world-wide release of Enjoy Eternal Bliss in November 2006, on both Big Scary Monsters and Burnt Toast Vinyl.

The self-released edition of Enjoy Eternal Bliss was often reviewed favourably (although the band have boldly copied negative reviews onto their myspace site), and gained a lot of attention because of its distinctive, individualised hand-made covers.

They also have a bootleg/demo entitled Awake! Awoke! This Heavy Gloom with 8 tracks on it. This was from the year 2006.

They have since gained a great deal of support from the self-released EP despite their limited exposure on the live circuit and have recently signed to the Big Scary Monsters record label in Europe and Burnt Toast Vinyl in North America. Vella also works on a side project called A Lily.


Members
: James Vella, Jack Lambert, Daniel Neal, Brendan Grieve, Oliver Newton.

Tracklist:

01 - dash and blast
02 - we flood empty lakes

Earth - The Bees Made Honey in the Lion's Skull (2008)







The Bees Made Honey in the Lion's Skull is the fifth full-length studio album by the band Earth. Earth embarked on a worldwide tour in support of the album.[4]

Bill Frisell is a guest on the album, playing guitar on tracks one, four, and five.

The title is a reference to Judges 14:8 in the Bible. It tells the story of Samson, who tore apart a lion and when he returned, noticed a swarm of bees and some honey on the lion's carcass. The album continues the trend of Earth songs being named, at least in part, after phrases from the Cormac McCarthy book Blood Meridian (for example, "Hung from the Moon" and "Engine of Ruin")

Lyrics

I can imagine my journey to eternity.
When the time comes i'll find the serenity
No thoughts. I'm trying to hear only my sounds.
I feel them, as i'm hugging the ground.
-
What if i close my tired eyes?
My soul will fly away to the stars.
Even the sun will die one day.
Can you see a reason to pray?
-
Listen to that. Death is coming out of life.
Try to laugh till you cry.
Darkness following the light.
Eternal cycle, day and night.
-

Όταν χαθεί η ελπίδα.
Κι όταν η ώρα μου φτάσει
Βαθιά θε να μπει η λεπίδα
Το χώμα απ'το αίμα μου με μιας να χορτάσει

My blood is flowing hot
Out of my veins.
I can see my God.
I broke my chains.

My blood is flowing hot
Out of my veins.
I stopped my inner screams.
It's time to quit my dreams.
-
I am the king of my frozen throne.
Enjoying my kingdom alone.
I am standing to the top of the greatest mountain.
Smiling to Gods cause i am alive again.

While Heaven Wept -Sorrow of the Angels (1998)



While Heaven Wept (often abbreviated as WHW) is an epic doom metal band based in Dale City, Virginia, USA.[1] The primary writer and overall engine of the band is mainman Tom Phillips. Their melodic, classically influenced style could be compared to bands such as Solitude Aeturnus and Solstice (the latter of which Tom Phillips is a former member); however, 2003's acclaimed Of Empires Forlorn saw the band branching out into a variety of metal and progressive styles. This trend continues on their 2009 album, Vast Oceans Lachrymose, and on their 2011 album, "Fear of Infinity".

Morgana lefay - Fata Morgana -1998 (Compilation)




From 1986 to 1989 the band was called Damage. In 1989 they changed their name to Morgana Lefay.

In 1997, Morgana Lefay split apart. Persson, Heder and Soderling relocated to Stockholm, leaving Rytkönen and Eriksson to find new members. Contractual disputes with Black Mark ended with Rytkönen and Eriksson (along with new members from Fantasmagoria) having to change name to simply Lefay. Persson, Heder and Soderling recorded an album under the Morgana Lefay name, but only to get rid of contractual obligations. The album is not recognised by the current incarnation of the band.

In September of 2004 Lefay resigned with Black Mark and regained the rights to use their full name.

Peter Grehn previously filled in on tour between Tommi Karppanen leaving and Daniel Persson joining.

Morgana Lefay went into another period of inactivity following the release of "Aberrations of the Mind" in 2007 and did not regroup again until 2012.

Morgan le Fay /ˈmɔːrɡən lə ˈfeɪ/, alternatively known as Morgan le Faye, Morgen, Morgaine, Morgain,Morgana, Morganna, Morgant, Morgane, Morgne, Morge, Morgue, and other names, is a powerful enchantressin the Arthurian legend. Early works featuring Morgan do not elaborate her character beyond her role as a fay or sorceress. She became both more prominent and morally ambivalent in later texts, in particular in cyclical prose works such as the Lancelot-Grail and the Post-Vulgate Cycle, in which she turns into a dangerous arch-enemy of King Arthurand an antagonist of some tales.

The earliest accounts of Geoffrey of Monmouth in Vita Merlini and Gerald of Wales refer to Morgan in conjunction with the Isle of Apples (Avalon) to which the fatally wounded Arthur was carried off after the Battle of Camlann. To the former, she was a healer and an enchantress, the eldest of nine sisters. In early chivalric romances by Chrétien de Troyes, she also figures as a healer. Her character may be partially derived from that of the Welsh goddess Modronand other myths.

In later medieval stories, depictions of Morgan change dramatically. She is often said to be the daughter of Arthur's mother Lady Igraine and her first husband Gorlois, so that Arthur, the son of Igraine and Uther Pendragon, is her half-brother. She becomes an apprentice of Merlin and a vindictive adversary of Arthur and the knights of the Round Table, with a special hatred for his wife Queen Guinevere. In Thomas Malory's Le Morte d'Arthur and elsewhere, she is unhappily married to King Urien, with whom she has the son Ywain, and her sisters include Morgause. She is also wanton and sexually aggressive, with many lovers including Merlin and Accolon, and an unrequited love for Lancelot. Morgan is an indirect instrument of Arthur's death, though she eventually reconciles with him and retains her original role, serving as one of the sorcerous queens who take him on his final journey to Avalon

Black Sabbath ~ War Pigs


       



Album: Paranoid
Song: "War Pigs"
~ LYRICS ~
"War Pigs"

Generals gathered in their masses
Just like witches at black masses
Evil minds that plot destruction
Sorcerers of death's construction
In the fields the bodies burning
As the war machine keeps turning
Death and hatred to mankind
Poisoning their brainwashed minds
Oh lord yeah!

Politicians hide themselves away
They only started the war
Why should they go out to fight?
They leave that role to the poor

Time will tell on their power minds
Making war just for fun
Treating people just like pawns in chess
Wait 'til their judgement day comes
Yeah!

Now in darkness world stops turning
Ashes where the bodies burning
No more war pigs at the power
Hand of God has struck the hour
Day of judgement, God is calling
On their knees the war pig's crawling
Begging mercy for their sins
Satan laughing spreads his wings
oh lord yeah!

Hexvessel - When We Are Death (2016)




Biography

Hexvessel is a psychedelic folk-rock band that was founded by Englishman Mat "Kvohst" McNerney, vocalist for blackmetal bands Dødheimsgard and Code. He moved to Finland in 2009 and was joined by a coven of musicians from Tampere that feature members of Galacticka and Dark Buddha Rising. Fusing late 1960s and early 1970s English folk and psychedelia with a love for Finnish nature, pagan mysticism, folklore and the occult, they play a witches brew of acoustic balladry and heavy tripped-out atmospherics. Interior-world-music for secret ceremonies and forest rituals.

On the debut record, Kvohst collaborated with Norwegian dark tango/folk musicians from Krugers Medbragte and Jaime Gomez Arellano from experimental avant-prog bands such as Mothlite, Guapo & who has previously carried out production work on Miasma And The Carousel of Headless Horses and Ulver. The album also features a guest vocal performance by Carl-Michael Eide aka Czral from progressive rock weirdos Virus and original hand-drawn artwork by Finland's godfather of doom, Albert Witchfinder.
Dawnbearer is a personal and intensely dark trip of unusual compositions, using organically recorded instruments such as dulcimer, psaltery, harmonium, zither, gongs, harp, mellotron, mandolin and bandoneon. Otherworldly folk, with an uncanny, haunting resonance that will undoubtably surprise fans of McNerney's past work. For admirers of Changes, Woven Hand, Espers & Comus. Dawnbearer was released by the audio aficionados at Svart Records on CD & LP on the 5th of February 2011.

The band is based between Helsinki and Tampere, Finland.

Hexvessel are:

Kapt. Kvohst - Voice & guitar

& The Death Magicians:

Marja - additional voices & percussion
Vesa - guitars
Jukka - drums

EARTH OVER US (lyrics)

This sacred tree will grow through you
the shape of your branches will start to show
When the dawn of man fades
all flesh will turn to hay
won’t you lay the earth over us?

Your soul is anchored at the roots
as bursts of pagan colours bloom

When the dawn of man fades
all flesh will turn to hay
won’t you lay the earth over us?

Open up the larch wood, spruce wood door
and let the stars spill on the forest floor

When the dawn of man fades
all flesh will turn to hay
won’t you lay the earth over us?

Sun grazing comets on galactic black bones
pleated with riddles of old dying stars

Impacted planets on the heavens breath
a glint in their eye of our birth and our death

BRECHT BERTOLT - ΤΡΟΜΟΣ ΚΑΙ ΑΘΛΙΟΤΗΤΑ ΤΟΥ ΤΡΙΤΟΥ ΡΑΙΧ




Ο Μπρεχτ μας μεταφέρει στα χρόνια πριν τον Β' Π. Πόλεμο, στα "έργα και τις ημέρες" των ναζί. Πριν τον "εξωτερικό εχθρό" οι ναζί πολέμησαν, τρομοκράτησαν και εξόντωσαν τον "εσωτερικό", αρχικά τους Εβραίους, και μετά το εργατικό και το λαϊκό κίνημα της Γερμανίας. Ο "Τρόμος και Αθλιότητα του Τρίτου Ράιχ", περιλαμβάνει είκοσι τέσσερα μονόπρακτα, που έγραψε ο Μπρεχτ εξόριστος στην περίοδο 1935 - 1939.
Το υλικό το άντλησε μέσα από ανθρώπινες μαρτυρίες, όπως αυτές παρουσιάστηκαν στις εφημερίδες της εποχής μεταξύ του 1933 και του 1938, όταν η ναζιστική φρικαλεότητα δεν είχε ακόμα ξεσπάσει.
Το κείμενο είναι χωρισμένο σε επεισόδια, γιατί ο Μπρεχτ πίστευε ότι ο μύθος πρέπει να παρουσιάζεται κομμάτι - κομμάτι. Σίγουρα αυτό το έργο είναι επίκαιρο όσο ποτέ άλλοτε αν και, γενικά, τα έργα του Μπρεχτ είναι ένα μάθημα ζωής. (Από την παρουσίαση στο οπισθόφυλλο του βιβλίου)
