As a Norse pagan I love this song but I also can’t handle it. It fires me up so much. It feeds my Viking spirit with well more than I can describe
First 5 seconds…youre full of it. your eyes scream, “WTF, this isn’t Taylor Sfift” Salt Shaker Blegh*
When you talk about emotions and how they effect ones life, these guys put so much heart and emotion into their music it is insane. I saw them in July last year and still get goosebumps every time I think about just how much passion and pure emotion they give each and every night. I just started therapy to help get my emotions in check and how to cope better, and this band has been one of them who helps me release things in a good manner. Try and go see them live and you will not be disappointed in them.
You over thought the song. “You understand only, the language/tongue of iron” where regular communication fails time after time, being russian, well if you don’t understand reason, then you’ll understand the sword
FINALLY somebody reviews the lyrics!
All the time it’s the only way that works for me and protects me
I absolutely do feel isolated in life
To be clear, Alex can do that at full volume and be heard. I’ve seen him do it while wrestling a bear for a music video (behind the scenes shot) and also after winning a MMA sparring match where he did fairly well. He does some covers of other songs too, you should check em out after you listen to STP’s albums.
I was actually talking about how hard it was to unlearn being an asshole as a default response, because while it did help protect me as a child/teenager against bullies it was supremely unhelpful as an adult who wanted to make genuine connections. I don’t want to hurt those I love, you know? I’m much happier now at nearly 40 being softer and vulnerable and kind and understanding, but it was a difficult road to get here.
3:00 no matter how many times i’ve heard this song, EVERY single time gives chills
No one ever mentions how similar some of the themes and lyrics are to Krigsgaldr, which is about warring Germanic tribes. I don’t know for sure, but I think this song is also telling that story based on the lyrics.
I love your videos so much thank you for these girl!!!
