Immolation definitely belongs on the list, for both Unholy Cult and Shadows in the Light.

A Kataklysm side project with an Ancient Roman theme. Anyone familiar with them? I'm curious.

Nothing new here. Vans has released several different shoes with Iron Maiden artwork. They also have a Slayer design now.

Somehow, a fictionalized, dramatized, Hollywood-ized version of the Lords of Chaos book is about the last thing I'd want to ever see.

Agreed, though I must admit this Rathbone guy kinda does look the part:

I think it's impossible for 1984 to claim any kind of originality. Brave New World predated it by 16 years.

Actually Orwell stated that the major influence on 1984 was the Russian novel We by Yevgeny Zamyatin, which itself predates Brave New World by about 10 years.

Palin's church was also torched recently.

ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) — An accelerant was poured around the exterior of Gov. Sarah Palin's church before fire heavily damaged the building, federal investigators said Monday. The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives said the accelerant was poured at several locations around the church, including entrances.

Lab tests will determine the type of substance involved. Possibilities include gasoline, kerosene, diesel fuel or even lamp oil, Agent Nick Starcevic said.

Garmarna - Hildegard von Bingen (2001, Rapidshare) [dead link]

Garmarna is inspired by music of the medieval period, be it their usual repertoire of Swedish folk, or in this case, the music of twelfth century nun Hildegard von Bingen. They studied the source material, and created new instrumental arrangements to surround the lyrics and von Bingen's original melody. Garmarna's style is a mixture of ancient and modern -- medieval music and modern modes are melted together. Layers of strings, guitars, hurdy-gurdy and percussion swirl around the traditional vocals of Emma Härdelin. Emma is at the center singing the old lyrics and melodies while the rest of the band create a new, electronic environment around her.

Lush and melodic celtic-folk

Loreena Mckennitt - The Wind That Shakes the Barley (2010, Rapidshare) [dead link]

I have long considered the creative impulse to be a visit – a thing of grace, perhaps, not commanded or owned so much as awaited, prepared for. A thing, also, of mystery. This recording endeavours to explore some of that mystery.

It looks as well into the earlier eastern influences of the Celts and the likelihood that they started from as far away as Eastern Europe before being driven to the western margins of Europe, particularly in the British Isles. With their musical influences came rituals around birth and death which treated the land as holy and haunted; this life itself as a visit. Afterwards, one’s soul might move to another plane, or another form – perhaps a tree. The Celts knew then, as we are re-learning now, a deep respect for all the life around them. This recording aspires to be nothing as much as a reflection into the weave of these things. – L.M.
