Et in Arcadia Ego Part III - Faust's Arcadian Elegy





 A Goethe's hymn for Arcadia through the mouth of the hero of his magnum opus "Faust"



This land, that outshines every land,
Be blessed for every race forever, 
Delivered to my Queen’s command,
That, long ago now, wondered at her

There, by Eurotas’ whispering light,
She broke radiant from the shell,
That brightness dazzling the sight
Of siblings: Leda’s eyes, as well.

This land now turns to you alone,
Offering you its noblest flower:
Oh, though the whole world is your own,
Let your country hold you in its power!

And though you may endure the sun’s cold arrow
Up there, on the mountain’s jagged height,
See, how the rocky hillside’s green below, now,
Where the goat may crop its meagre right.

The sources leap, all streams rush down as one,
Gorge, slope, and meadow are already green.
On a hundred hills, rock-folded, steep and broken,
The scattered woolly flocks are clearly seen.

Spread all around, with cautious measured stride,
The horned cattle tread the dizzy edge:
But here there’s shelter that the caves provide,
Hundreds to hide them all, on the rocky ledge.

Pan guards them too: and lively nymphs live there,
In the damp fresh space of bushy clefts,
And, yearning upward to the higher air,
The crowded tree its slender branches lifts.
 
Primeval woods! The mighty oaks their cap:
Whose stubborn boughs stick out from them, in state:
While kindly maples, pregnant with sweet sap,
Soar cleanly upward, toying with the weight.


Pure mother’s milk, in that still realm of shadows,
Flows rich, in readiness for lamb and child:
Fruit’s not lacking, gift of fertile meadows,
And from the hollow trunk drips honey mild.

Here well-being’s granted all the race,
Cheek and lips both to joy consent,
Each one is immortal, in their place:
And all there are healthy and content.

And thus the lovely child, of purest days,
Grows, and achieves his father’s strength.
We’re amazed, the question’s still, always:
Are these gods, or are they truly men?


When Apollo took a shepherd’s form,
The fairest of them was like the sun:
Since, where pure Nature is the norm,
Then all the worlds must move as one.

So, this have you, and this have I achieved:
Let the past fade behind us: it is gone!
Oh, know yourself from highest gods conceived,
o the first world, alone then, you belong. 

No solid fortresses shall ring you round!
In eternal youth, stands as it stood –
So our stay with all delight be crowned –
Arcadia in Sparta’s neighbourhood.

Lured here to tread this blessed ground,
You fled towards a happy destiny!
Let our thrones as arbours now be found,
Our joy be Arcadian, and free!

GOETHE Faust (Part II - Act III)

The Swastikas of Lambach Abbey




"In my free time I practiced singing in the choir of the monastery church at Lambach...."

ADOLF HITLER - Mein Kampf



"Visitors to the monastery have observed one curious and memorable detail. In six or seven places - over the ornamental gateway, over a stone well, and over some of the stalls in the abbey -  a swastika appears. The swastika was included in the coat  of arms of Abbot Theodorich Von Hagen [Hagn], who rules over the monastery in the fifties and sixties of the last century. In German  a swastika is a Hakenkreuz ( hooked cross), and evidently the abbot regarded it as a pun on his own name, the difference between Haken and Hagen being so small that it might passed unobserved. The abbot's swastika inspires no fear: it was carved delicately and simply, and the only emotion it conveys is one of suprize that an abbot should amuse himself with such an obvious pun. Adolf, who was now living in a well-desgined building at the corner of the Linzerstrasse and the Kirchengasse, could see the swastika from the window of  his father's appartment, and he saw it more clearly when he went to school. Abbot Thedorich Von Hagen's swastika was probably the ancestor of the Nazi Hakenkreuz"

DMR BOOKS - Sword, Planet and Sorcery!




Coming Soon on DMR BOOKS

 DMR Books is proud to announce our first split release in the tradition of the Ace Double series! This book contains two novellas, each with its own cover.

This will be its first publication in book form.


 On the flip side is "Under a Dim Blue Sun," a brand new story by "Swords of Steel" favorite Howie K. Bentley. Instead of sword-and-sorcery, Bentley has penned a sword-and-planet tale in the style of Edgar Rice Burroughs or Leigh Brackett, but with his usual brand of blood and thunder!


 Lands of the Earthquake/Under a Dim Blue Sun will be available in early July.

BRAN CASTLE - A Historical Timeline





1211
The Teutonic Knights – “Ordo domus Mariae Sanctae Theutonicorum Hierosolimitanorum” – a catholic religious order formed in Palestine during the late twelfth century by German crusaders, received Țara Bârsei (“Terra Borza” or “Burzenland” – a country named after the Cuman tribe of Burci) from King Andrew II of Hungary. The purpose of this gift was to establish the Teutons in the area and to defend the Southeastern border of Transylvania from the Cumans and the Pechenegs.
The Teutons erected a fortress in Bran (a Turkish name meaning “gate”), before they were driven away from the area in 1226.

 1377
On November 19, the office of the Hungarian King Louis the Great – Louis I of Anjou – issued a document granting to the people of Brasov (“Kronstadt” – The Crown’s City) the privilege of building a castle. Through this document, the Saxons of Transylvania (“Sachsen” – a population of German origin that came to Transylvania in the twelfth century), from the region encompassing Brasov, were urged to participate in the building of Bran Castle, which was previously named “Dietrichstein” or “Törzburg” in German, “Törcsvár” in Hungarian, and “Turciu” in Romanian.
 1388
In 1388, the castle’s construction was complete. The Castle was built on a steep cliff between Măgura and Dealul Cetăţii (“fortified town’s hill”), with an exceptional view of the nearby hills, Moeciu Valley and Valea Bârsei. It served the role of customs – holding 3% of goods transferring in and out of Transylvania – and the role of a fortress – the castle stood at the Eastern border of Transylvania and was used in an attempt to stop the Ottoman Empire’s expansion. The castle was inhabited by professional soldiers, mercenaries, and the storyteller Ioan de Târnava, wrote about “the English brigands and ballista soldiers” of the fifteenth century. The lord of the castle was elected by the King, usually from among the Saxons, and whose role was increasingly important in the history of Transylvania. By the end of the fifteenth century, the castle’s commander also held the title of Vice-Voivode of Transylvania.

1407
The Castle was given as fief (“property given in return for loyalty”) by Sigismund of Luxembourg to his ally, Prince Mircea, the Elder of Wallachia, where he could escape to in case of an attack by the Turks. After the death of the Romanian Prince in 1419, due to the political instability of Wallachia, Sigismund took over the castle and entrusted it to the Princes of Transylvania.

1441
The Turks raided Transylvania, but John Hunyadi (Iancu de Hunedoara) defeated them in Bran. Iancu, Prince of Transylvania, who needed the support of the Saxons at the border, reinforced the promises granted to the inhabitants of Brasov by Mircea the Elder and by Sigismund.

Europe 2017: Talmudic witchhunt to the enemies of Kalergi Plan



Hungary is a Nation that during the africano-asiatic invasion of the last years stood proudly on its ground, defending their National identity and sovereignity as an independed state with secure borders for its own people. Openly refused to be in the line of the EU-puppet states. Despite all our agreements , Viktor Orban showed courage and will for his own country and judging for his various statements, he seems to understand whats the real game in European politics these days. The Kalergi plan. 

Last April the veteran German patriot Horst Mahler, after an openly political persecution, and even an attempt against his life, escaped Germany, seeking asylum in Hungary.

See the full story here:

-THIS IS A VIDEO THAT EU TREASON GOVERMENTS DONT WANT YOU TO KNOW. SPREAD IT AROUND AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE -

The Forest Wanderer






"The ship is a symbol of temporal existence, the forest a symbol of supratemporal Being. In our nihilistic epoch, optical illusions multiply and motion seems to become pervasive. Actually, however, all the contemporary display of technical power is merely an ephemeral reflection of the richness of Being. In gaining access to it, and be it only for an instant, man will gain inward security: the temporal phenomena will not only lose their menace, but they will assume a positive significance. We shall call this reorientation toward Being the retreat into the forest (Waldgang), and the man who carries it out the wanderer in the forest (Waldgänger). Similar to the term “worker” (Arbeiter), it signifies a scale of values. For it applies not only to a variety of forms of activity, but also to various stages in the expression of an underlying attitude. The term has its prehistory in an old Icelandic custom. The retreat into the forest followed upon proscription. Through it a man asserted his will to survive by virtue of his own strength. That was held to be honorable, and it is still so today in spite of all commonplaces to the contrary.


Wanderers in the forest (Waldgänger) are all those who, isolated by great upheavals, are confronted with ultimate annihilation. Since this could be the fate of many, indeed, of all, another defining characteristic must be added: the wanderer in the forest (Waldgänger) is determined to offer resistance. He is willing to enter into a struggle that may appear hopeless. Hence he is distinguished by an immediate relationship to freedom which expresses itself in the fact that he is prepared to oppose the automatism and to reject its ethical conclusion of fatalism. If we look at him in this fashion, we shall understand the role which the retreat into the forest (Waldgang) plays not only in our thoughts but also in the realities of our age. Everyone today is subject to coercion, and the attempts to banish it are bold experiments upon which depends a destiny far greater than the fate of those who dare to undertake them. The retreat into the forest (Waldgang) is not to be understood as a form of anarchism directed against the world of technology, although this is a temptation, particularly for those who strive to regain a myth."

Ernst Jünger Der Waldgang (1951)

May 1453 - Before The Fall





May 28th, 1453
The final speech of  last Byzantine emperor Constantine Palaiologos to the last defenders of Constantinople. Greeks and Italians (from Genoa and Venice).


     “Gentlemen, illustrious captains of the army, and our most Christian comrades in arms: we now see the hour of battle approaching. I have therefore elected to assemble you here to make it clear that you must stand together with firmer resolution than ever. You have always fought with glory against the enemies of Christ. Now the defence of your fatherland and of the city known the world over, which the infidel and evil Turks have been besieging for two and fifty days, is committed to your lofty spirits.

    Be not afraid because its walls have been worn down by the enemy’s battering. For your strength lies in the protection of God and you must show it with your arms quivering and your swords brandished against the enemy. I know that this undisciplined mob will, as is their custom, rush upon you with loud cries and ceaseless volleys of arrows. These will do you no bodily harm, for I see that you are well covered in armour. They will strike the walls, our breastplates and our shields. So do not imitate the Romans who, when the Carthaginians went into battle against them, allowed their cavalry to be terrified by the fearsome sight and sound of elephants.

    In this battle you must stand firm and have no fear, no thought of flight, but be inspired to resist with ever more herculean strength. Animals may run away from animals. But you are men, men of stout heart, and you will hold at bay these dumb brutes, thrusting your spears and swords into them, so that they will know that they are fighting not against their own kind but against the masters of animals.

    You are aware that the impious and infidel enemy has disturbed the peace unjustly. He has violated the oath and treaty that he made with us; he has slaughtered our farmers at harvest time; he has erected a fortress on the Propontis as it were to devour the Christians; he has encircled Galata under a pretence of peace.

    Now he threatens to capture the city of Constantine the Great, your fatherland, the place of ready refuge for all Christians, the guardian of all Greeks, and to profane its holy shrines of God by turning them into stables for his horses. Oh my lords, my brothers, my sons, the everlasting honour of Christians is in your hands.

    You men of Genoa, men of courage and famous for your infinite victories, you who have always protected this city, your mother, in many a conflict with the Turks, show now your prowess and your aggressive spirit toward them with manly vigour.

    You men of Venice, most valiant heroes, whose swords have many a time made Turkish blood to flow and who in our time have sent so many ships, so many infidel souls to the depths under the command of Loredano, the most excellent captain of our fleet, you who have adorned this city as if it were your own with fine, outstanding men, lift high your spirits now for battle.

    You, my comrades in arms, obey the commands of your leaders in the knowledge that this is the day of your glory — a day on which, if you shed but a drop of blood, you will win for yourselves crowns of martyrdom and eternal fame.”

Συνέντευξη Dreadful Relic στο περιοδικό ''Φανταστική Λογοτεχνία'' (Δεκέμβριος 2016)


Συνέντευξη με το ελληνικό black metal συγκρότημα Dreadful Relic
 του 
Σταμάτη Μαμούτου 


  Οι Dreadful Relic αποτελούν ένα από τα σχήματα της ελληνικής black metal σκηνής  που διακρίνεται για τον πρωτογενώς «μαυρομεταλλικό» μονολιθικό του ήχο, καθώς επίσης και για τις στιχουργικές του αναφορές που σε αρκετές περιπτώσεις είναι εμπνευσμένες από έργα της λογοτεχνίας του φανταστικού. Στην συνέντευξη που ακολουθεί, ο κιθαρίστας τους Hjarulv Henker μας μιλά για την μέχρι τώρα μουσική διαδρομή της μπάντας και για τις επιρροές των μελών της.

-Hjarulv, θα ήθελα καταρχάς να μου περιγράψεις συνοπτικά το ύφος των δυο κυκλοφοριών σας, δηλαδή του demo «Archaic Conjurations» και του Ep  «Warlords of Cosmic Sovereign». Πότε κυκλοφόρησαν; Από ποια δισκογραφική εταιρία; Ποια η μέχρι στιγμής ανταπόκριση του κοινού στην χώρα μας αλλά και στο εξωτερικό;

Οι Dreadful Relic παίζουν Αρχέγονο black metal, πέρα όμως από τα επιτηδευμένα «ρετρό» ανέμπνευστα αναμασήματα που βλέπουμε σήμερα να αναπαράγονται από πρόσωπα που δεν είχαν καμία επαφή με το black metal της δεκαετίας του ‘80…Τα «Archaic Conjurations» και «Warlords…» κυκλοφόρησαν το 2014 και το 2015 αντίστοιχα από την εταιρία του Commando Wolf, «Frost & Fire». Η ανταπόκριση ήταν ικανοποιητική, λαμβάνοντας υπ’ όψιν ότι δεν ακολουθούμε τις μοντέρνες τάσεις της υποτιθέμενης «σκηνής». 

  -Εκείνο που έχω να σχολιάσω ακούγοντας τις δυο κυκλοφορίες σας είναι η άρτια παραγωγή, ο στιβαρός σας ήχος και τα ποιοτικά αισθητικά γνωρίσματα ιδίως στο «Warlords of Cosmic Sovereign», το οποίο κυκλοφορεί σε ένα εξαιρετικά προσεγμένο βινύλιο. Αν μου ζητούσε κανείς να χαρακτηρίσω με μια φράση το ύφος σας, θα απαντούσα πως στην περίπτωσή σας έχουμε να κάνουμε με ένα συγκρότημα που παίζει «πρωτογενές black metal». Είναι όντως έτσι; Ποιες θεωρείς τις βασικές μουσικές σας επιρροές;

Ακριβώς! Το Μυθολογικό Black Metal των Dreadful Relic έχει βαπτισθεί στις σκιές των Hellhammer/Celtic Frost, των Bathory και των Mercyful Fate.

TANGERINE DREAM on Edgar Allan Poe




"This work is the beginning of a new series by Tangerine Dream: Eeatgate's Sonic Poem Series. Edgar Allan Poe definitely is worth a start, a novelist who long enough has been labelled as dark, mysterious and gloomy only -- Poe was more than that -- a true visionary.

It's the art of breathing life into a tale through strong music. Enjoy this true masterpiece of finest Tangerine Dream music -- we don't promise too much.... 
PS: You will find the whole but short tale of The Island Of The Fay within the booklet! Enjoy reading but above all: enjoy listening!!"

Remembering Dominique Venner

 
"I am healthy in body and mind, and I am filled with love for my wife and children. I love life and expect nothing beyond, if not the perpetuation of my race and my mind. However, in the evening of my life, facing immense dangers to my French and European homeland, I feel the duty to act as long as I still have strength. I believe it necessary to sacrifice myself to break the lethargy that plagues us. I give up what life remains to me in order to protest and to found. I chose a highly symbolic place, the Cathedral of Notre Dame de Paris, which I respect and admire: she was built by the genius of my ancestors on the site of cults still more ancient, recalling our immemorial origins.

While many men are slaves of their lives, my gesture embodies an ethic of will. I give myself over to death to awaken slumbering consciences. I rebel against fate. I protest against poisons of the soul and the desires of invasive individuals to destroy the anchors of our identity, including the family, the intimate basis of our multi-millennial civilization. While I defend the identity of all peoples in their homes, I also rebel against the crime of the replacement of our people.

The dominant discourse cannot leave behind its toxic ambiguities, and Europeans must bear the consequences. Lacking an identitarian religion to moor us, we share a common memory going back to Homer, a repository of all the values ​​on which our future rebirth will be founded once we break with the metaphysics of the unlimited, the baleful source of all modern excesses.

I apologize in advance to anyone who will suffer due to my death, first and foremost to my wife, my children, and my grandchildren, as well as my friends and followers. But once the pain and shock fade, I do not doubt that they will understand the meaning of my gesture and transcend their sorrow with pride. I hope that they shall endure together. They will find in my recent writings intimations and explanations of my actions

The Black Metal Voice of The Past


"Life is a well of delight; but where the rabble also drink, there all fountains are poisoned."
Thus Spoke Zarathustra
  


 "Given the bleakly modern aesthetic that has surfaced within the work of bands such as Shining, Anaal Nathrakh and The Axis of Perdition. Its easy to forget
that prior to Satyricon and Moonfog Productions` urbanization of the genre in the late nineties, black metal was almost exclusively obsessed with the ancient past.
Seemingfly denying the entire industrial revolution conceptually speaking, the movement was dominated by Old English fonts, primitive analog productions, old supertitions, folklore, references to folk and classical music, and numerous paeans to the glories of untainted nature and pagan religions.
"

Echoes from The Tower of Set




"For all my fellow Conan The Barbarian fans, I have improved the quality of the existing Tower Of Set music. The original version, Las Cantigas De Santa Maria (The Snake) - Conan The Barbarian Complete (found here on youtube), sounds flat and muted, with static noise making it worse, so I mixed it with Clemencic Consort - Cantiga 166 (Como Poden) which is the recording Poledouris used.

Clemencic Consort sounds far superior to Las Cantigas De Santa Maria but lacks the female chorus Poledouris added for the movie, and since Poledouris edited it, cutting and repeating certain sections, the recordings do not sync up. It took some time to edit both pieces to sync properly.

I also reduced the noise in the Las Cantigas version so that the resultant mix is almost noise free (but not completely noise free, as removing too much distorts the music).

This was a small labor of love. I hope you enjoy!"

 So if anyone of you visiting one of these countries , "Visions of The Past" can serve as a very reliable adviser. Instead of fancy restaurants, decandent nightclubs , multi-kulti shopping centers and other similar sewers. Its better to go directly in the places that the European soul lies at. In ancient ruins, medieval catacombs and cemetaries, dolmens, neolithic tombs etc.

Men of the West and The Final Hour of Doom




All about the hills the hosts of Mordor raged. The Captains of the West were foundering in a gathering sea. The sun gleamed red, and under the wings of the Nazg?l the shadows of death fell dark upon the earth. Aragorn stood beneath his banner, silent and stern, as one lost in thought of things long past or far away; but his eyes gleamed like stars that shine the brighter as the night deepens. Upon the hill-top stood Gandalf, and he was white and cold and no shadow fell on him. The onslaught of Mordor broke like a wave on the beleaguered hills, voices roaring like a tide amid the wreck and crash of arms.

As if to his eyes some sudden vision had been given, Gandalf stirred; and he turned, looking back north where the skies were pale and clear. Then he lifted up his hands and cried in a loud voice ringing above the din: The Eagles are coming! And many voices answered crying: The Eagles are coming! The Eagles are coming! The hosts of Mordor looked up and wondered what this sign might mean.


There came Gwaihir the Windlord, and Landroval his brother, greatest of all the Eagles of the North, mightiest of the descendants of old Thorondor, who built his eyries in the inaccessible peaks of the Encircling Mountains when Middle-earth was young. Behind them in long swift lines came all their vassals from the northern mountains, speeding on a gathering wind. Straight down upon the Nazg?l they bore, stooping suddenly out of the high airs, and the rush of their wide wings as they passed over was like a gale.


But the Nazg?l turned and fled, and vanished into Mordor's shadows, hearing a sudden terrible call out of the Dark Tower; and even at that moment all the hosts of Mordor trembled, doubt clutched their hearts, their laughter failed, their hands shook and their limbs were loosed. The Power that drove them on and filled them with hate and fury was wavering, its will was removed from them; and now looking in the eyes of their enemies they saw a deadly light and were afraid.


Then all the Captains of the West cried aloud, for their hearts were filled with a new hope in the midst of darkness. Out from the beleaguered hills knights of Gondor, Riders of Rohan, Dúnedain of the North, close-serried companies, drove against their wavering foes, piercing the press with the thrust of bitter spears. But Gandalf lifted up his arms and called once more in a clear voice:

'Stand, Men of the West! Stand and wait! This is the hour of doom.'

And even as he spoke the earth rocked beneath their feet. Then rising swiftly up, far above the Towers of the Black Gate, high above the mountains, a vast soaring darkness sprang into the sky, flickering with fire. The earth groaned and quaked. The Towers of the Teeth swayed, tottered, and fell down; the mighty rampart crumbled; the Black Gate was hurled in ruin; and from far away, now dim, now growing, now mounting to the clouds, there came a drumming rumble, a roar, a long echoing roll of ruinous noise.

'The realm of Sauron is ended!'

25th of March 1821 - The Hellenic Rebirth





“Vosstan, o Gretsiia, vosstan”

Arise, o Greece, Arise!
Not in vain you strained all your forces,
Not in vain had been violently shaken
Olympus, Pindus, and Thermopylae.

Under the peaks of their ancient sky
The youthful liberty appeared,
And on the grave of Pericles;
And the sacred marbles of Athens.

Land of the heroes and gods
Break forever the chains of slavery
While singing the inspired songs
Of Tyrtaeus, Byron, and Rhigas!

Alexander Pushkin

Norwegian Black Metal - Anno 1992




"At that time black metal wasn’t a term. Enslaved did their Viking Metal, Immortal did their Holocaust Metal etc but we were so tight knitted back then – completely into the atmosphere. [We were]going into the woods by night, have candles/torches exploring old Nazi-bunkers and caves around Bergen, playing role playing all night until the morning light killed the magic –  that was what my world and art was about. Darkness, grimness, fantasy and friends, I didn’t draw one single colorful happy drawing those years – not one"

At The Hunting Mountain of Artemis




Kithairon (or Cithaeron) is mountain in Attica that I`ve wrote very few words about it (see the related thread at the end of this post). As almost every other mountain around this vast region, it has an endless number of myths written in its historical past. A Gods , Heroes and demigod's dwelling giant that once stood in-between two rivals of the ancient Hellenic world. Athens and Thebes.
