"My god is greater."


« on: October 30, 2011, 11:56:50 PM »

I discovered today that there exists a band from Ukraine with Orthodox themes- I suppose the Orthodox answer to Moonsorrow. They have 4 albums so far. I'm not sure yet how I feel about them. The vocalist sounds a bit like Dani Filth and I really don't like Dani Filth. But the rest of the music is well-done.

Anyway, here's one song of their album "Waves are Dancing": http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b2H3w4fgpY8&feature=related

Yeah I mentioned them in a thread a while back. They are on the same label as my band. Waves Are Dancing is definitely their best album, but The Patriot is also pretty good.

I completely disagree on the Dani Filth comparison.

I recommend checking out an older related band called Evroklidon (Евроклідон) from Ukraine. They just have one album called The Flame of Sodom but it's much more black metal. Think that kind of trademark National Socialist (read:Nazi) black metal sound (very militaristic at times) meets the drone of Filosofem era Burzum meets some folk metal elements. Really a quite solid album that got virtually no exposure. Also on the same label as my band, BTW.

Anyway here's a sample:

It's really one of those albums where each songs is pretty different than the others and brings something different, so I'd check out other tracks. I haven't listened to this band in many years, so I think it's time to dust off the disc and give it a spin. This is really taking me back to my black metal days...

Do they have a real drummer? Sounds a drum machine to me.

Of these more primitive Christian Black Metal bands ( or "bands" since it's one man project) I prefer Dark Endless. As it is proper and kvlt, he has published only one EP which is IMO a lot better than average Christian attempt to create Black Metal. Here's one of his songs:

Hm, I must have really zoned out somewhere. What's your band, Alveus?

WOW!  I had no idea anyone on this board would be into this kind of metal, or any metal for that matter!
I love BURZUM! And some other black metal bands.  Plus the usual metal like SLAYER, METALLICA, etc.
Mostly I'm into hardcore & punk.  THE CLASH is my fave band ever.  RANCID I love.  H2O, TERROR, MADBALL, AGNOSTIC FRONT, GREY AREA,
BLACK TRAIN JACK, SHELTER, HATEBREED, SHAI HULUD, SICK OF IT ALL, GORILLA BISCUITS, etc...lots of good hardcore still being played today.
Older bands like BUZZCOCKS, SKREWDRIVER, COCKSPARRER, BUSINESS, COCKNEY REJECTS, etc...great stuff.
Jimmy Cliff, Desmond Dekker.....OP IVY, and some other reggae / ska / bluebeat / rock steady stuff also.

Here in Detroit we have a decent hc scene at times: COLD AS LIFE, PITTBULL, EARTHMOVER, WALLS OF JERICHO, FULL ASSAULT, NIGHTBRINGER, HELLMOUTH, SUICIDE MACHINES, etc.  Decent shows, but at 41 I'm a little jaded from gouing to shows for 27+ years!
Hardcorepunk, straightedge, metal, and rock & roll forever!

Welcome to the forum, vadermask Smiley  Yeah, we have a number of threads discussing heavier music, such as...

Yes, yes, youth is wasted on the young. And so is accumulated experience wasted on the old, the positives of modernism wasted on moderns, the beauty of Christianity wasted on Christians, the utility of scholarship wasted on scholars, and on and on.

Hi, thanks for the welcome.
This is great!  I've only recently discovered Orthodoxy about a yr ago.  I am Roman Catholic, having been confirmed in the church in 2009 whilst I was in the county jail here in Detroit.  Had a run-in with the law & like the CLASH say in the Bobby Fuller song...."I fought the law and the law won!"  LOL. Nothing I hadn't experienced before, addiction & jail & hopelessness, etc. AA & NA work incredibly well, but for this stubborn old punkrock-skinhead-hardcore kid I needed something more. I was raised tepidly as a Catholic. I abandon it when I got my mohawk at 14.  Ironically via Bahkti Yoga (Hare Krsna) I became more attracted to Lord Jesus & Rome.  Lately I've been collecting & reading all the Orthodox Christian books I can.  All of Kallistos Ware's books, monastic writings, lives of saints, "These Truths We Hold," "Our Thoughts Determine Our Lives," "The Monks of Mount Athos," "The Mountain of Silence," "Elder Moses of Optina," "In the Heart of the Desert," "Sayings of the Desert Fathers," Patriarch Bartholomew, Theophan the Recluse, etc and on & on.  Soooo much to absorb, I love it!  But like someone just recently told me: God isn't to be learned about he is to be known!  I like that. 
Music is important to me, though at 41 it's not as important as when I was 16 moshing to AGNOSTIC FRONT, CRO-MAGS, EXPLOITED, BLACK FLAG, SLAYER, THE CLASH, etc. I'm psyched to learn that there are ppl on her that are into heavy music!

Cheers!
