Drottnar - Axiom
https://open.spotify.com/track/5AmDGSrDOzil8sLQVE1uQf?si=e-0Qaq3yRneiLP_oX4a6dg

I didn't know Drottnar was still alive. It's been years since I've heard of them. Thank you Spotify for bringing this to my attention. Apparently they've decided to turn from being a Mayhem clone for being something else. Still quite progressive but with a lot more groove this time. Sound pretty good.
I just need to find out how to say it in Slavonic!

Epica, just bought tickets for their show in March.
"May the Lord our God remember in His kingdom all Holy Catholic Apostolic Church, which heralds the Word of Truth and fearlessly offers and distributes the Holy Oblation despite human deficiencies and persecutions moved by the powers of this world, in all time and unto the ages of ages."

Is any of the above Orthodox?  I have no clue, so there's that.

Coheed and Cambria - Justice In Murder

I'm not a huge fan of their running storyline, feels kind of pretentious to me though I doubt I could really do better so I might just be jealous, but I do like C&C as just music. "Welcome Home" is probably still my favorite track of theirs but that might be just because I imprinted on it via the old trailer for the movie 9. "Mother Superior" is another favorite.

Gauche as it might be to say, I also really like "A Favor House Atlantic."

Amen.

Killswitch Engage's Holy Diver cover.

They're no Ronnie James Dio, but then again who is? Not a huge fan of the gutteral scream, but it does kind of work off the video to give a sense that this is a bit of a playful parody of Dio's style.

Now I feel like listening to the original and Rainbow in the Dark.

Brainstorm, Liquid Monster

My favourite highlights are 'Worlds Are Comin' Through', 'Heavenly' and 'Painside', but there's really not a duff track on it.

Sabaton, Carolus Rex. Another bilingual album that I like better in the native language (Swedish, in this case) than in English.

Swedish version - English version

A friend pointed me towards the music of Emahoy Tsegué-Maryam Guèbrou, a nonagenarian Ethiopian nun who composes and performs on the piano, combining jazz, classical and Orthodox chant elements. Mind. Blown.

Sample

But really, anything of hers I've found to listen to is a wonder.

Nice. What would you say are the Orthodox chant elements?

A friend pointed me towards the music of Emahoy Tsegué-Maryam Guèbrou, a nonagenarian Ethiopian nun who composes and performs on the piano, combining jazz, classical and Orthodox chant elements. Mind. Blown.

Sample

But really, anything of hers I've found to listen to is a wonder.

Nice. What would you say are the Orthodox chant elements?

Only vaguely acquainted with Ethiopian chant modes, so I can't really pick out this or that point, but I can imagine a lot of the track linked above working well as a vocal line. You can hear more like that here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L2PJHhaRv8k&t=255s

Yeah, I can definitely hear it in that second track, at least.

Christ my God, set my heart on fire with love in You, that in its flame I may love You with all my heart, with all my mind, and with all my soul and with all my strength, and my neighbor as myself, so that by keeping Your commandments I may glorify You the Giver of every good and perfect gift. Amen.

"Whether it’s the guillotine, the hangman’s noose, or reciprocal endeavors of militaristic horror, radical evil will never be recompensed with radical punishment. The only answer, the only remedy, and the only truly effective response to radical evil is radical love."
