Recently discovered Gojira, one of the few bands that sounds better live :thumbsup:
Years ago I used to get the Metalhammer magazine monthly at CNA. They always contained a CD or 2 in it. This song was on it and blew me away.

The mag sometimes had DVD's as well. I got 1 DVD that was double sided as well. You could play both sides like a vinyl disc lol.

Don't even know what music thread to put this in.

Their music is based on texts from artifacts of the Iron Age and the Viking Age. They describe their music as "amplified history from early medieval northern Europe".[2] Heilung means "healing" in German

"The listener is supposed to be left at ease and in a relaxed state after a magical musical journey that is at times turbulent".

The references to the early ages of humanity is also made by using texts from historical artefacts or historical poems. The languages used are varied, with German, English, Gothic, Latin and Iron Age Norwegian dialects being used.

As instruments, items are used that may have been already available to humans in the Iron Age, such as drums, bones or spears. The female vocals of Franz are ethereal, while Faust's throat singing recalls the Tibetan or Mongolian style. Juul uses a chirping whisper as vocals.

This and Wardruna (and some of Garmarna's old stuff) is awesome -if you're into this kind of stuff, of course.
EDIT: Also Kati Ran's stuff.
Love Wardruna. I was trying to explain their sound to someone I recently met and he said he knew a band that sounds similar and told me to check Heilung out. Bloody awesome.
