Trobadors de l’Apocalipsi

Accompanying the collapse of a civilisation are the prophets, the doomsayers and those who inevitably seek to hasten the process, but there is also a role for the poet, the artist and the musician. As far as the latter is concerned, one of the chief bastions of the prevailing apocalyptic mentality has been the Neofolk, Industrial and Neoclassical genre. Indeed, buried deep within our European and North American subculture, its purveyors and protagonists do not simply reach for the proverbial fiddle as the flames begin to spread through the heart of Rome itself, but they provide us with new insights into the causes of our demise and remind us of the cultural traces which – for better or worse – have made us who we are. Gathered together in this new volume are some of the most popular names in the field and, in a series of fascinating biographical essays, each participant recalls their origins and musical development; their personal hopes and aspirations; the things in life that motivate and inspire them; and their plans for the future. Contributors include Francesca Nicoli (Ataraxia), Riccardo Prencipe (Corde Oblique), Gerhard Hallstatt (Allerseelen), Miklós Hoffer (H.E.R.R.), Raymond P (Von Thronstahl / The Days of the Trumpet Call), Richard Leviathan (Strength Through Joy / Ostara), Robert Taylor (Changes), Grzegorz Siedlecki (Horologium), Daniel Pablo & Carles Jiménez (Àrnica), Christopher Walton (AbRAXAS / Endura / TenHornedBeast) and Kristian Olsson (Survival Unit / Alfarmania). Edited by Troy Southgate, himself a participant in this remarkable musical genre, this book will lead you through the classical and the romantic, the sinister and the enlightening, the tragic and the triumphant.

Erde [Forseti]

Bellesa, sensibilitat i fins i tot tendresa poden copsar-se a la música d’aquest cantautor alemany.

La seva és música inspirada en la identitat alemanya i dedicada al reviscolament d’Europa.

Honour [Of the Wand and the Moon]

gaze into the fire

esguarda dins el foc

gaze into the flame

esguarda dins la flama

and from that it’ll rise

i s’hi alçarà

simple yet so effective

simple i tanmateix contundent

a choice to be made

la tria a ser feta

to be the sheep or the shepherd

de ser el ramat o el pastor

to be the hammer or the nail

de ser el martell o el clau

to fail or prevail

de fracassar o prevaldre

in hearts drained of honour

als cors drenats d’honor

these chants shall resonate plenty

aquests càntics hi ressonaràn plenament

in hearts vile and hollow

als cors roïns i corcats

these chants shall sneak in gently

aquests càntics s’hi infiltraràn delicadament

in hearts drained of honour

als cors drenats d’honor

these chants will leave them empty

aquests càntics els deixaràn buits

in hearts dead and shallow

als cors morts i superficials

these chants shall rise eternally

aquests càntics s’hi alçaràn eternament

in the ashes of a fire neglected

a les cendres d’un foc desatés

a seed a spectre unexpected

una llavor, un espectre inesperat

a fire that never rests

un foc que mai s’esgota

unconquered sun – reawake

sol invicte – desvetlla’t

sound thy trumpets tune thy drums

sonen les trompetes, la tonada dels tambors

and sharpen thy daggers

i s’esmolen els coltells

let them know we’re coming

fem-los assabentar-se que ens apropem

carrying the winds that shatters

duent els vents que esmicolen
