A surprise this week!
It's not often that such raw black metal makes it to SOTW.
I kind of randomly listened to this on my way to work and I was blown away by the sheer raw energy of this band!
Instantly recommended this to a friend who also loved it.
Apparently, the band name is taken from a book by Rick Riordan, whom I didn't know, but he's the writer of Percy Jackson, which got a mediocre movie that I haven't seen.
Oh man, your SOTW's are totally messing with my YouTube's recommended playlist (not a complaint, rather the opposite). It's bringing up all sorts these days, my regular songs, old stuff that I'd forgotten about and totally random new songs (please keep it up ).
This is one of the random songs that came up which caught my attention tonight FAUN - Walpurgisnacht (official video) - YouTube[^]. I think it was recommended because it has a Hurdy Gurdy in it which is linked to one of your SOTW a little while back.
On a side note, the Percy Jackson movies are worth a watch, especially if you have older children or young teenagers. Personally, I liked the twist on the old myths.
Back when I was like 15 years old (which was already 18 years ago ) I went to my first ever fantasy fair.
It had stands with medieval clothes, swords, armors, lots of spiritual books, statues, stones, etc.
And of course, there was music!
And one of the first bands I saw, was Faun
My dad bought their album, Licht, which they had probably just released at the time (which was released in 2003).

Glad you like my SOTW's, I enjoy all your suggestions too!

First positive thing I've heard about it, maybe I'll watch them someday
YA comes from "YACC" ... "Yet Another Compiler Compiler" so YAxxx gives a nice pattern.
The latest Hate, LOG and HSB keep coming back in my playlist ... They all have interesting tracks
(I just checked that Google interpretes HSB correctly, wow ...). And now I added Akhlys
BTW, congrats for your latest article ... Perhaps I will write something basic about GCP but I never find time, unluckily ...
Sorry about my bad habit to abbreviate. So, the usual suspects on my list are Lamb of God latest works, Heaven Shall Burn (especially their latest "Of Truth and Sacrifice" contains a lot of nice stuff) and I nearly forgot Meshuggah (especially "Obzen", "Catch 33"...), and more of this kind like Decapitated, Dyscarnate ( thx), Hate, Vader ... They all are quite intense, and on the other hand they give some sort of peace of mind ,
