HUMP DAY – WE’RE ALMOST THERE…

Well my HeadBangers 2 more days and another week gone.  Here’s 3 bands that hopefully will help you make it through…..

STRATOVARIOUS

This band is from Finland, my favorite place for melodic death metal, once you have been there you will never forget it.  It’s gigs all the time and home to the Tuska Festival.  If you ever have a chance to go there for a festival do not hesitate, seriously.

“Frozen In Time”

Stratovarius was born in 1985, in Finland, they are a Power Metal Band.  This song was just released September 16, 2022.

“BOREALIS”

“Ashes Turn To Rain”

Borealis is a Canadian Power/Progressive Metal Band from Orangeville, Ontario, Canada.  Listen to that guitar, yeah they got me.  This band was started in 2005.  Don’t be surprised if you see them as a feature some Friday.

“Orden Ogan”

“In The Dawn Of the AI”

Well what would Hump Day be with out one of my German Bands, you gotta love them seriously.  Orden Ogan is a  German Power Metal Band with Progressive and Folk Metal mixed in, they became a band in 1996.

“My Thoughts”

Well my HeadBangers these 3 bands make me wish it was Friday night.  Oh and sorry about the ads on the videos.  I hate that, I may have to do something about it.  Have a safe rest of the week and join me back here Friday for a new band and a new song.  Love my HeadBangers….

WEEK 186 – SALTATIO MORTIS

My HeadBangers, sorry I’m late had the crud and working a lot, but I’m back at it.  

Please welcome from Karlsruhe, Germany, the  Medieval Metal Band:

SALTATIO MORTIS

The Latin name means “dance of death”.  It is an allusion to the Danse Macabre and a motto of the band is: “He who dances does not die.”

“Alive Now”

This song is from August 2022, let’s hear some medieval music:

“Pray To The Hunter”

I really like this song and the video is kickass, it sends to me a time long ago.  How can you not like it.  For those of you who don’t know, I am one lol, Medieval metal is a subgenre of folk metal that blends heavy metal music with medieval folk music. Medieval metal is mostly restricted to Germany where it is known as Mittelalter-Metal or Mittelalter-Rock. The genre emerged from the middle of the 1990s with contributions from Subway to Sally, In Extremo and Schandmaul. The style is characterized by the prominent use of a wide variety of traditional folk and medieval instruments.  I didn’t know this, but now I do.  You know I love my German Bands, so I’ll just add another one to my list.

Let’s meet the band:

May be an image of 4 people and crowd

Alea der Bescheidene – Vocals, Bagpipes, Didgeridoo, Guitar, Irish Bouzouki, Shawms

Falk Irmenfried von Hasen-Mümmelstein – Bagpipes, Vocals, Hurdy-Gurdy, Shawms

El Silbador – Bagpipes, Shawms, Smallpipes, Uilleann pipes and other pipes (2006-present)

Bruder Frank – Bass guitar, Electric Upright Chapman Stick, Guitar (2006-present)

Till Promill – Guitar (2012-present)

Jean Mechant der Tambour – Drums, Piano, Guitar, Vocals (2009-present)

Luzi das L – Pipes, Shawms, Flutes (2011-present)

“My Thoughts”

Once again my HeadBangers I could not find much of a bio on this band.  They started in 2000 in Germany.  There has been lots of lineup changes but that happens as we all know.  I wish I could find bio’s on every band, but even though I search everywhere and I mean everywhere some bands just don’t have a bio.  I want every band on this planet to know if you give me the info I will write your BIO.  We Headbangers like our bio’s!!  However I do love their music, and who knew there were so many different kinds of musical pipes omg.  I don’t want to get started on that or this page will be full of different pipes.  Sorry for the delay HeadBangers, I had the crud and working way to much.  I’m back on track so that’s it for this week.  Join me next week for another band and another song.  In the meantime don’t stand to close to the fire if you can’t handle the burn…..
