Cool :) I came upon them because they're included in a list of "2014 Metal" by Phillip Patton on Spotify...

Was the new Atlas Moth on that list? If not, check it out. I really liked their last album (and not just for its.. uh.. intriguing album art) and this is an improvement to an already great sound as far as I'm concerned.

Their faith background is kind of interesting too. None of them are Christian, but the two main song writers are best friends -- an atheist who lost faith and a spiritual seeker. Also, this most recent album they named after the Russian Old Believers. Check out this interview, if you're interested.

Rush 2112

Turned off the lights, lit some incense, and listened to this one all the way through. Really takes me back to my high school days. Never gets old. Take 45 minutes out of your life and listen to this album from beginning to end.

“Universe,” “love,” “eternity,” “brotherhood,” “peace,” “life,” “justice,” “truth,” “God”… These are big words. Very big words. But not nearly big enough. They can’t be defined; they can only be lived.

Forgot--thanks for the Atlas Moth link (though it wasn't on Spotify, I don't think, when I checked, but that's what youtube is for I guess...)

Death and the Maiden Quartet (Schubert)

A personal favorite.
"Love ... is an abyss of illumination, a mountain of fire ... . It is the condition of angels, the progress of eternity" (Climacus).

Quote from: Seekingtrue
Yes we who are far from sainthood we can recognize a living saint and I'm talking from personal experience.Yes they are gentle soo gentle it can not be described it is like gentleness and humility in one and also they have this light this energy it's beyond words...and when you are near them you feel ecstatic and very happy

Well the quartet is based on another Schubert lied, "Der Tod und das Mädchen."
"Love ... is an abyss of illumination, a mountain of fire ... . It is the condition of angels, the progress of eternity" (Climacus).

The title makes one think of one of Schubert's other works.

I did not click your link until now. On my way home from work, I was thinking of both pieces. I think the similarity extends to the music. They were both in my mind because I wrote about Erlkönig three weeks ago.

I think Arachne's husband doesn't care for DFD (and I prefer Fritz Wunderlich myself).

He doesn't care for lieder in general :) I do like DFD, although my favourite Winterreise by a mile features Brigitte Fassbaender accompanied by Aribert Reimann.

Was transcribing this for guitar earlier and now it's stuck in my head. Makes for a fun metal song.

Satyricon - Phoenix

I've been listening to this song for few days now. Clean vocals fit in quite nicely with Black-ish Metal.
But the stranger that dwelleth with you shall be unto you as one born among you, and thou shalt love him as thyself; for ye were strangers in the land of Egypt: I am the LORD your God.

Mesfin Abebe "Befikrish Teyzo"

Even though it sounds like it was recorded on someone's answering machine, I'm loving the interplay between the guitar lines and Mesfin's voice here. He's got some real charm (though for all I know he could be singing about ice cream or something; wait...no...that would make it better). Wish the CD retrospective of his material that Nahom Records in DC did was still available, but their webstore seems to have disappeared since I last ordered from them about 4 years ago. Shame.

I am passively  (take that to mean very slowly) shopping for a wi-fi speaker solution.....my former speakers plug into an Apple Airport express, but mine was too old to work with new OS...


so now I have no household sound via computer....

Awww. If it helps, the JBL Flip 2 runs about $100 if you're just buying it and not trading up for a phone.  :)
