  • Youtube links, if available, might not be bad for the lazy among us to be able to listen

  • I'll go ahead and do it right away. But first: with Slipknot I definitely miss Wait and Bleed But in general your taste is completely different from mine. The only thing I rarely hear about it is Amon Amarth.

    2. Antique (difficult to describe, I would say that it should show that you can achieve something in life)
    3. The mother who lost her child (title says it all, it is about her thoughts after the death of the child and how she lives on now)
    4. The steps (gives a lot of individual pieces of advice for life)
    5.Frozen (about people who only pay attention to their beauty and think beauty is everything)
    and outside of the ranking this cover that you might like:

    Yes, I think everyone was, if you have any questions about the individual bands, just keep calm, there is nothing I prefer to talk about than the music I listen to.

    "Young people nowadays love luxury. They have bad manners, despise authority, have no respect for older people and gossip about where they should work. Young people no longer get up when older people enter the room. They contradict their parents, rant in society, devour the desserts at the table, cross their legs and tyrannize their teachers. "
    -Socrates (469-399 BC)

  • I also like to hear some of what you two have posted, well apart from, for example, Amon Amarth, who I really don't like.

    2. Last man standing
    3. Riders of the Storm
    4. Let the hammer case
    5. Dark Wings, Dark Words [/ spoil]

    Manowar
    [spoil] 1. Sons of Odin (even if the video about 300 is really annoying ...)


    2. Warriors of the World
    3. The With Honor
    4. Loki God of Fire
    5. The Crown And The Ring
    [/ spoil]

    Obscurity

    3. The warrior's face
    4. Thuringia
    5. Wotan's rune song [/ spoil]

    Odroerir, for the most part have the best texts, which is mainly due to the fact that they quite like to follow the Edda. With bands like Amon Amarth, the lyrics seem more like the writer had to watch Spartacus for a month.
    [spoil] 1. Van War


    2. Bringing home the hammer of Thor
    3. De Excidio Thuringiae
    4. Heimdall
    5. Skadi's revenge [/ spoil]

    Sabaton
    [spoil] I know it was already mentioned but here are my 5 favorite songs ^ ^
    1. White Dead


    2. Price of a Mile
    3. Lion from the North
    4th Ghost Division
    5. Wolfpack [/ spoil]
  • Wolf Rüdiger Mühlmann, Rock Hard: Quote:

    to menhir:

    menhir: part of a right-wing, "völkisch" blood-and-soil scene in thuringia

    had talked to him about it there once, but couldn't find the entry. That's why I threw away my menhir CDs.

  • Yeah, there are a lot of great things on the internet, google on while I hear menhirs that are not on the right. My goodness.

  • I talked about it personally with this scene connoisseur.

    It was just a hint, if you want to deal with it, I can certainly not forbid you to do so.

    Maybe one or the other thinks about it.

  • In the pagan metal arena, many bands are labeled right-wing even though they are not. I can't say anything about Menhir because I saw her name for the first time yesterday. But you shouldn't always be so quick to believe the reports. I know that from Varg. Were referred to as right although they have song lines like "old fine - du nazisau" or once the song BLutaar with the words "For everyone who thinks we are right, for the idiots who still haven't got it" introduced .. The song begins with the line "Slaughter them like cattle".

    So you just have to see that band opponents often spread such rumors. You can only confirm or refute this in a few cases, therefore: Like or dislike music and form your own opinion on the song content. I also avoid everything in which I find the right approaches

    It was just a hint, if you want to deal with it, I can certainly not forbid you to do so.

    Maybe one or the other thinks about it.

    As long as something like that is not reflected in the songs, I don't care if it's true.
    And "experts" or "connoisseurs" tend to be wrong about such things. They also like to put bands like Frei.Wild or Onkelz in the corner of the blood-drinking zombie Nazis. ^ ^

  • Wolf Rüdiger Mühlmann is not a band opponent but is the author of books about the metal scene and freelance work for Rock Hard. He knows the scene very well, and because I've known him for a while from the forum (several years) I rely on it more than on a Wikipedia article, which only served as a hook. If you want to find out more, you can write to him or I forward a request.

    In East Germany there is a strong right-wing radical scene that has infiltrated Metal and invokes ethnic symbols and archetypes, of course you can't generalize that, I don't mean bands like Unkels, for example, who screwed up on this when they were young but later distanced themselves from it. Authors like Blawitska or Steiner are called in to idealize a Germania which did not exist in THAT form (to be read in the "Esoteric Roots of National Socialism").

    Sabaton, a Swedish power metal band ^^
    First of all, 2 important links for all information about the band
    01. The homepage: http://www.sabaton.net/
    02. The German wiki page: Sabaton? Wikipedia
    + And a bonus link for a small mini-game: Sabaton - Carolus Rex Game

    This is mainly about their current album "Carolus Rex" which is about the Swedish Empire (16th / 17th century) and Karl XII. is about Sweden.
    The album itself is epic! Tracks like "Carolus Rex" or "A lifetime of War" are just too majestic.
    In addition, thundering, pounding, whipping songs ala "Gott mit uns" or "Poltava" make this album a real feast for the ears and an album that will go down as a milestone in music history (at least that's my opinion). ^^

    The album was recorded in 2 languages, English and Swedish.
    Whereby the Swedish version is clearly the better !!! ^^
    As a bonus there is a cover version of Amon Amarth's great song "Twilight of the Thunder God", a tremendously pounding song!
    And I love the artwork for the album, the blue-gold contrast is perfect. ^^

    I voted for these songs in the poll: Poltava, Gott mit uns, and A Lifetime Of War (En Livstid I ​​Krig).
