The RMR crew just covered Eluveities latest video that found highest praise from the review committee at our mighty office tower. But a short while earlier, Faun joined forces with the Swiss folk metallists for their video Gwydion. And this is – in and by itself – a stellar idea.

Faun are of course known for their pretty sumptuous video productions. You’ll always find a pretty snazzy storyline based on some mythical character or ancient legend. Albeit that lately, the band produced some avalanche of different clips that somehow muddied the waters. In other words, instead of just only … [...] Click to raid more!

Neo-Pagan and Dark Folk fascinate me, in a geeky kind of way. It’s an archaic multiverse of sorts that seeks to recreate long bygone times that were – supposedly – aligned to Gaia’s consciousness. You know, those times when we were all dancing around the fires and painting weird symbols on rocks.

You got the amplifiers of Heilung for instance, the folks that weirdly howl around the stage claiming they got a grip on all that history thing.

One that whispers from old bygone times where the nailed god wasn’t quite invented yet, and the countryside home to all sorts of miscellaneous deities, large or small.

The RMR crew was thus mighty glad that Gåte and their newest album Nord finally found their way onto our review pipe. A truly … [...] Click to raid more!

Ah, dope. Faun are gearing up for a new album in 2022, following their dreamy 2019 piece Märchen & Mythen. AND they are (finally) back with a fresh set of moving pictures.

The band is known for its pretty sumptuous productions, as in Feuer or Walpurgisnacht. Mini-movies that we’ll always prefer over the ubiquitous band-in-the-wilderness thing. And we’re hopeful that this clip here will lighten the load of the pretty mediocre offering of videos covered so far this long year of 2021.

But fear naught.

Halloween here pretty much adds another layer on top of what we got … [...] Click to raid more!
