A timely song from my all-time favorite 80's band.
XTC - This World Over
I had one album (CD) by them called 'English Settlement'. It was during my phase when I liked listening to some 'post-punk'/'new wave' bands from England and Germany.

These two were my favs from that album:

In 10 minutes there's an online concert stream for this female slavic folk singing group from Eastern Europe (already posted about here and in another thread):

I haven't had much time at all to listen to these offerings.
I'm always glad when I have a chance to :-D

The newest from Wardruna, topic is Healing again.



Lyrics copied from the YT description page:

Healing-mountain
Saddle your soul and let it ride With blind eyes, you’ll surely find the way Draw your breath in – let your thoughts fly Let it out slowly – on winds you’ll bide The spindle spins, the thoughts entwine revolving sight The enchantment song lures the soul from its shape Out through the door, through the cobweb-veil Out borne on bare feet, a heavy burden Out in your innermost, a steep trail ahead High upon Healing-Peak, nine maidens await At the first stop where paths cross, you pause Leave clothes behind and all you own Where you are heading, they’ll be of no use The burden lightens, but heavy is the trail ahead At the second stop where paths cross, you pause Leave time behind, and weighty thoughts Where you are headed, they’ll be of no use The burden lightens, but heavy is the trail ahead At the third stop where paths cross, you pause Leave fears behind, let fall all masks Where you are headed, they’ll be of no use The burden lightens, but heavy is the trail ahead Naked at the top, the mountain knows you North waves an eagle-wing, the wind it draws The shadow-women dance about you They sing for you, chanting powerful runes Wounds and sickness Of marrow and blood Of meat and bone Of flesh and skin into weather and wind you fade I summon you into the mountain blue Where neither sun nor moonshine can reach you I summon you into the forest where no one dwells and out to the sea where no man rows Deep beneath an earthbound stone out of harm’s way Run through the rivers and roll with the ocean tides Into weather and wind you fade Neither sun nor moonshine can reach you Sink in the sea where no man rows Run through the rivers and roll with the ocean tides Healing-mountain stands for eternity It comforts the sick and the sore Each and every one who assails that rock Will find their lifelong ailment cured Leave it behind on Healing-Peak Where the rivers and streams dance northwards and down That mountain mends all those who climb

Lyrics copied from the YT description page:
There are so many days when I feel like that climber stumbling barefoot toward the mountaintop. Others where I feel like the woman weaving her magic as she stands tlal, the bearded man with arms wide to embrace it all... but especially the climber.

Reminds me how long it's been since I've been to the mountains! Far, far too long. I love the mountains in all their savage glory and immense beauty.

This song is for me, very healing indeed. Wadruna does it again!

I have been discovering Tool the last days.
I always though of them as a good Metal band but their music seems much more than that.
I feels more like spiritual songs which touches you in the core. the texts are also very spiritual and the video clips are "out of this world"

just an example of one song and the lyrics


Lateralus
Tool

Black then white are all I see in my infancy
Red and yellow then came to be, reaching out to me
Lets me see
As below, so above and beyond, I imagine
Drawn beyond the lines of reason
Push the envelope, watch it bend
Over thinking, over analyzing separates the body from the mind
Withering my intuition, missing opportunities and I must
Feed my will to feel my moment drawing way outside the lines
Black then white are all I see in my infancy
Red and yellow then came to be, reaching out to me
Lets me see
There is so much more
And beckons me to look through to these infinite possibilities
As below, so above and beyond, I imagine
Drawn outside the lines of reason
Push the envelope, watch it bend
Over thinking, over analyzing separates the body from the mind
Withering my intuition leaving opportunities behind
Feed my will to feel this moment
Urging me to cross the line
Reaching out to embrace the random
Reaching out to embrace whatever may come
I embrace my desire to
I embrace my desire to
Feel the rhythm, to feel connected
Enough to step aside and weep like a widow
To feel inspired
To fathom the power
To witness the beauty
To bathe in the fountain
To swing on the spiral
To swing on the spiral to
Swing on the spiral
Of our divinity
And still be a human
With my feet upon the ground I lose myself
Between the sounds and open wide to suck it in
I feel it move across my skin
I'm reaching up and reaching out
I'm reaching for the random or what ever will bewilder me
What ever will bewilder me
And following our will and wind we may just go where no one's been
We'll ride the spiral to the end and may just go where no one's been
Spiral out, keep going
Spiral out, keep going
Spiral out, keep going
Spiral out, keep going

apparently the song even goes a bit deeper. No wonder that I intitively picked this one ... :cool:
I used to be a real 'Toolhead' (used as an analogy to or derivation from "Metalhead") in the early 2000-years especially. I've listen endlessly to the Lateralus album (2001) which was my favourite for a long long time.

And yes, they are a universe to discover and somewhat unique in their genre (well, some say they are in a genre of their own anyway already). I like their 'occult' and 'spiritual' angle. Too many other metal bands are either somehow atheistic (cuz it's maybe cool or whatever) or even satanistic (Black Metal), so it is really refreshing to have Tool.

In metal I indeed can't picture a band that has this kind of spirituality in it.

the bands that I like mostly are in the category of:
- protest songs
- letting out the internal feelings (anger, frustration, dissolution, disapointment ...) toward a strange world

these are band like the old Metallica, Pantera, Channel Zero, Hexa Mera, linkin park,...

this is also the reason you find a lot of rough outside, solf inside people in the metal scene as they find their feelings translated in the music.
