Thanks for this list, it looks promising for more new music! How are you enjoying the Icelandic?

Loot    Fri, 02/02/2018 - 22:22

I have to admit I haven't really done anything in the way of Icelandic since we last talked about it, but I haven't forgotten about it. Regular smile

Cool - what languages are you doing, if you don't mind me asking? It's always interesting to see where other people's interests lie, and keen linguists (or indeed, linguists - I blame the poor way they're handled in schools) are hard to come by in my country! :')

Excellent suggestions, thank you! I will proceed to add the missing videos later.

I was surprised to find Fever Ray's "If I had a heart" on the list, but after listening to it, I understand a little better why. Regular smile

It is the opening theme of the series "Vikings", after all.

Loot    Sun, 28/01/2018 - 20:55

Oh, I had no idea.

Excellent suggestions! I didn't know there were songs about the Thursatru worship. I will add them soon.

Sciera    Tue, 20/02/2018 - 15:23

Yeah, thursatrú is pretty niche, don't really know any thursatrian songs besides that artist.

Higgs Boson    Tue, 20/02/2018 - 18:04

I have met Asatrú and Lokean heathens, but I don't know any practitioners of Thursatrú. I don't know if it is even recognised within the community. Someone else with more knowledge could enlighten us,

Sciera    Tue, 20/02/2018 - 18:26

Afaik, Thursatrú tends to be not often recognized among general heathenry, but I'm not active in the pagan community normally, so I can't tell whether that can be generalized.

I think all practitioners of Thursatrú I so far encountered identified as LHPers, i.e. following a heterodox spiritual path (which makes sense considering the general reputation of the thurses in Norse mythology), and at least some not necessarily as heathens/pagans.

I mean, there are also self-identifying LHPers who work with the Æsir (e.g. the lyricist of Ironwood whom I mentioned above if the band name is any hint, I read his weblog a while ago), but thursatrú is basically reverse-asatrú, so it's not surprising that that is rather shunned.

The list is still under major construction. Thank you for your suggestions!

N0rseN    Tue, 20/02/2018 - 15:18

Thank you for making this !

Higgs Boson    Tue, 20/02/2018 - 18:21

You're welcome, I have added almost all of the suggestions, all that is left for me is to add the missing videos in the songs.

Added a "few" more, I dont expect them all to be added, but I think they all are worthy of consideration.
I let you work with the list, but if you ever feel like you need more suggestions let me know and I be happy to provide some.
I will also try to add missing videos, provide translations etc if you need that too.

Higgs Boson    Mon, 12/03/2018 - 14:02

All are excellent suggestions! I did not add all, but only some of them. Regardless, thank you so much for your contribution!

N0rseN    Mon, 12/03/2018 - 14:38

Good calls! This might need some subcollections eventually.
