Maria is the sound of Mother Earth.
Remember when Ashland was killed in Nárnia
no shes the sound of maria.. the earth is crickets and wind and water.
This is not music or art or performance.This is pure magic.
+Seet Clear maybe it's best to disregard all the naysayers in this post...if they can't make you respond the they've lost their silly game. Don't let them bullbait you with their nonsense. You're not beholden to idiots.
+Karel4 Those supernatural beings are 'called' through humans beings devoting their intentions and veneration onto a discriminated subset of qualities, known as a God. Song is a powerful medium, nobody questions a church for using electrically amplified equipment to sing praise to Jesus, it's not about the medium you're using, it's about the intention of the group involved in the ritual. Ultimately this is a ritual first (for the band + perhaps some of the followers), and a song second created to inspi...
She's amazing <3 I just discovered this band a few days ago but my favourite part about them is her voice.
Valerie Pickett My uncle spells words the English way even though he is American and I think it’s cool. He read some English authors growing up so they influenced his spelling permanently.
Im in the same position as you were,just found a 9gag post from one of the their vids and i knew i found another favorite. :]
I've been a musician most of my life. Been in studios, recorded, performed at everything from clubs to Medieval events, won awards . . . and I have never heard a more perfectly modulated, crisp and pure voice in my life. Absolutely stunning.
blah blah blah
The masculine and the feminine are necessary for the magic to work
+Ryan Klaassen real reason are your weakness and cowardness
+segaprophet you can fuck right off! People like you are the reason people of Germanic origin can't celebrate our culture without being associated with nazis.
This language is proto Norse. Not old norse. Old norse was the language spoken by the vikings. This is much older. This was the language that some germanic people spoken on the Downfall of roman Empire hundreds of years before the viking advent. More, this have pagan influence from the 0 to 500 ad. Not that end of pagan influence in nords land of circa 800-900, the time of viking era. So heilung whant to show something more older and primitive than..." Viking music", because this is not that...
What if the next band beats them by doing something even older and doesn't use lyrics, just grunts and roars of cavemen? that's even older and more primitive than old norse music! :D
+Aírmana til Aujm Agreed, but the rythym and intensity I doubt is accurate. It's cool to play old instruments but unless we have the score there's really no way of knowing. I know that the Faroese have these songs where they hold each others hands and walk together in a circle which is supposedly very ancient. The potential of the authenticity of their songs is higher.
This speaks to me in ways I can not articulate with words......
Serious question, to the Nordic ear would old Norse sound roughly to the modern language as the King James Bible sounds to modern English speakers? If that’s a clunky analogy, please forgive and maybe share a more accurate one if you could. How does it differ from the modern?
This goes straight to your soul and awakens the ancient sacred memories of the time when we were from the Great Northern Forests and were one with the bear, the wolf.and the deer.
+Raymond Cantlay the living water
If you have European blood in you and this doesn't awaken something inside, you need to rethink your life. Welcome to our "church". We walk with the Gods, not fear them.
the album underutilised her vocals so much, that's why I only listen to the live album because her voice is honestly so haunting it gives me shivers every time !
Ofnir showcased Maria's voice great! Kai's is the one that was underutilized if anyone's was which I don't think anyway. Rock On!
True Elliot Harkin but Kai's vox are also excellent. The sickest male vocals I've heard since Max Cavalera.
