I watched American History X with my roommate last night. Watching the film brought back memories and nostalgia for my teenage years. When I first saw the movie as a teen, I was obsessed with Scandinavia due to my passion for heavy metal and my own Danish roots. (more…)

In order to fully understand the importance of this year’s Asgardsrei festival, one must understand the impact that the Blazebirth Hall scene, and in particular, its most prolific artist, Kaldrad, had on both NSBM (National Socialist Black Metal) and the overall sound of Eastern European black metal.
Lords of Chaos (2018)
Directed by Jonas Åkerlund
Starring Rory Culkin, Emory Cohen, Jack Kilmer, & Sky Ferreira
Written by Dennis Magnusson & Jonas Åkerlund, based on the book by Michael Moynihan & Didrik Søderlind
The book Lords of Chaos by Michael Moynihan and Didrik Søderlind, and published by Feral House, is a masterpiece that everyone should read. The film, unfortunately, is not something everyone should see.
One of the first perks I took advantage of upon recently moving to a big city was the much wider selection of concerts. The modest Lutheran town I hail from did not offer much in the way of bone-powdering metal shows, and as such I have already attended more live performances in the past few months than I had in my entire life prior to the move.

If I wanted to provide an example of the Faustian spirit at work, I would probably point to the Asgardsrei festival. Just think about what would be the most extreme and difficult event to organize.

You move to a different country and proceed with your work. (more…)

Minulý víkend jsem se byl podívat na hudebním festivalu Stella Natura v krásném prostředí Sierra Nevady nedaleko Soda Springs v Kalifornii. Stella Natura je festival neofolkových a blackmetalových kapel z Evropy i Severní Ameriky. Zvlášť jsem toužil slyšet Changes, Fire and Ice a kapelu Waldteufel. Také jsem věděl, že na akci bude hodně lidí, kteří sdílejí můj zájem o neopohanství, tradicionalismus i pravicovou politiku. Nakonec jsem zjistil, že tam bude dost mých přátel i přátel mých přátel.

TYR: Myth, Culture, Tradition, vol. 4
Ed. Joshua Buckley and Michael Moynihan
North Augusta, SC.: Ultra Press, 2014
Finally receiving the new issue of TYR, one feels torn between wishing that each volume could appear more frequently, or at least more regularly, and on the other hand, appreciation for the time and attention devoted to bringing out such unparalleled collections of articles, interviews and reviews of books and music devoted to the “Myth – Culture – Tradition” of the North by Messrs. Buckley and Moynihan. (more…)

This weekend I went to the Stella Natura Music Festival in a beautiful setting high in the Sierra Nevada near Soda Springs, California. Stella Natura features neo-folk and black metal bands from Europe and North America. I was particularly eager to hear Changes, Fire and Ice, and Waldteufel. I also knew that there would be a large contingent of people who share my interests in neopaganism, Traditionalism, and Rightist politics. (more…)
