Lāčplēsis

1,918 words

On my way to a heavy metal concert last year, I had a layover at the Riga Airport. While having a beer and a shot of Black Balsam at the airport bar, I was talking online to a Latvian woman that also liked heavy metal. I told her that I had always wanted to visit Riga Read more …

Winter of Solitude

Juliusz Kossak, Kmita’s Companions on a Ride, 1885.

1,763 words

When I first moved to Eastern Europe, I did not have any friends in the region. Thus, I spent the winter of 2017 in solitude. To avoid any feelings of loneliness, I set a goal to finally read Henryk Sienkiewicz’s trilogy of historical novels. I also set a goal to go for a walk each evening. Whether I was in Lviv, Rzeszów, or Minsk, Read more …

The Hero in All of Us

Holger Danske.

1,742 words

Of all the airports I have traveled through, I have probably spent the most time at Copenhagen Airport. During a recent layover there, I kept passing by a souvenir shop that displayed books about hygge, a Danish term that broadly represents “coziness, contentment, and happiness.” Whether I was visiting castles, discovering ancient burial mounds, or attending heavy metal concerts with friends, I have had many experiences in Denmark that gave me the hygge feeling. As a wanderer, dissident, and white advocate, Read more …

Blood, Fire, & Spirit

Mårten Eskil Winge, Thor’s Fight with the Giants, 1872.

1,839 words

When the average person thinks of Sweden, they probably think of IKEA, meatballs, ABBA, and PewDiePie. When people in the Dissident Right think about Sweden, we often think of a country at the pinnacle of anti-white propaganda and anarcho-tyranny. Nevertheless, Swedish culture has had a great influence on my life, from the music I listen to each day to the furniture I fall asleep on each night. Furthermore, much of our fascination and modern-day perception of the Vikings comes from a small group of Swedish writers from the Geatish Society Read more …

Albion’s Hidden Numina
“Reynardine”

1,703 words

ReyardineIn the summer of 1969 the members of Fairport Convention were gathered together at a country house in Farley Chamberlayne in picturesque Hampshire. There they were to record their most celebrated album, Liege & Lief, the definitive statement in English folk-rock. The country retreat setting was partly therapeutic as the band had earlier that year been involved in a tragic road accident whilst on their way back from a gig in Birmingham. The drummer, Martin Lamble, and guitarist Richard Thompson’s girlfriend, Jeannie Taylor, were both killed. Clearly, the remaining members of Fairport were looking for a new musical direction as they sought to put the past behind them.  Read more …
