Video of the Day
And now for some Bulgarian Orthodox Nationalist Heavy Metal . . .

time: 3:34 / 22 words

This is not really my kind of music, but the mere fact that this exists is interesting enough!

    Orthodox Metal. Great concept! As a straight-edge kid I was especially moved by bands like Shelter, 108 and the other “Krishna-Core” outfits because they took the SE ideal one step further and infused their message with a spiritual one as well, realizing that singing about avoiding intoxicants, vegetarianism, clean living and moral uprightness simply wasn’t enough. The spiritual must be addressed as well. Many of these guys were actually celibate monks, living the ascetic life because they were serious about self-realization and they toured endlessly attempting to spread their message to others, like tireless musical bodhisattvas.

    I always wondered why there were not more metal/hardcore style bands influenced by other spiritual traditions. One current example of a band with overtly spiritual lyrical themes is the Vedic thrash/black metal band Rudra. Excellent stuff. Of course, pagan metal is now ubiquitous, but I’d really like to see more metal bands influenced by everything from Sufism to Proclus to Orthodoxy. The possibilities are endless. Maybe I should start an “Evola-core” or “Guenon-core” band!

    I love Bulgaria and Bulgarians! For those who prefer a bit more traditional fare, I suggest Abagar; Bulgarian music, in general, is more ethereal than even the best Celtic folk. It is in my opinion, the best and most original of European music.
