New Rammstein video!

It examines some of the darker moments of Germany’s history in Africa.

Rotting Christ – In the Name of God – (Official animated video)

Genre: Black Metal/Gothic Metal/Melodic Black Metal

Location: Greece

Themes: Anti-Christianity, Occultism, Mythology, Satanism

Enjoy the (relatively) new Rotting Christ video above! Released a couple of weeks ago. I personally enjoy the music better without the video, but maybe that’s just me. Their new album The Heretics  was released in February 2019.

Rotting Christ is a Greek black metal band formed in 1987. They are noted for being one of the first black metal bands within this region, as well as a premier act within the European underground metal scene. They are also responsible for creating the signature Greek black metal sound prevalent in the early 1990s.

Behemoth – O Father O Satan O Sun! (Official Video)

Genre: Black Metal (early), Black/Death Metal (later)

Themes: Paganism (early), History, Satanism, Luciferianism, Thelema (later)

Location: Poland

I know I’ve posted a lot of Behemoth videos from the Satanist album before. But that’s just because that album is so good. I won’t profess to know the exact meaning of this video. But I think I recognize some of the symbolism. Prometheus shackled to the cliff while birds circle overhead, ready to eat out his organs to punish him for gifting mankind fire. One-eyed Odin, the wanderer, with a raven. Both are figures who are similar to Satan in a way, they brought knowledge to humanity and suffered for it. Is that what Behemoth was going for in this video? I don’t know, those are just my guesses.


Varg Vikernes Has Ended Burzum for Good

“Burzum Is My Painful Past in a Reeking Bog”

“Burzum was never my choice of life. I didn’t even want to become a musician.”

 

Varg Vikernes has announced that Burzum is no more after giving away his only copy of the project’s 1992 self-titled debut album.

The disc went to a fella named Nathan B, who beat Varg in a challenge of getting from 0-100 kmh (0-60 mph) in their 4×4 vehicles.

Burzum was active between 1991 and 1999, and then again from 2009 until now. The project has 11 studio albums in its discography, the final of which came out in June 2014 under the title of “The Ways of Yore.”


God King – Rise of Xerxes

It is unlikely that the actual king Xerxes walked around in golden underwear, speaking like an androgynous robot.

But what is powerful about this brief video is that it shows the power and the majesty that God Kings in the ancient world commanded over their subjects. Today modern people laugh at the idea of a King or Pharaoh being a living God. But in the ancient world, many people really did worship their rulers as Gods. Many people truly believed that their kings were the bridge between the world of the living and the heavens beyond. These rulers commanded a fanatic awe among their subjects that is hard for us to imagine. Like a celebrity, sports star, or dictator – but so much more.

So movies like this help us understand the psychology of the God King and his followers.


The 12 Laws of Karma

Karma is the Sanskrit word for “action” or “deed.” It refers to the principle of cause and effect, where intent and action influences the future. There is a close connection with karma and rebirth in many Eastern religions, that the actions of this life will affect someone in their following life. In Hinduism there is a very long term concept of this. For example, a blind king in the Bhagavadgita was punished for something he did 100,000 years ago, in a previous life.

Now technically there really is just one “Law of Karma.” The “12 Laws” are not an ancient law, as far as I can tell. I think the 12 laws are something newer, perhaps new age. But they aren’t a bad guideline for life. Many people who struggle through life tend to see themselves as victims, rather than agents of their own destiny. They think all the bad things that happen to them are the fault of others, and expect others to change in order for their own quality of life to improve. Now obviously, not everyone is responsible for every bad thing that happens to them. Bad things happen to good people all the time. There is that old expression, “no good deed goes unpunished.” However, accepting responsibility for your own actions and working to change yourself for the better of others is a key theme of many spiritual paths. So the video I posted above, as well as the laws I provided below are good guidelines to live by.


1. THE GREAT LAW

– Whatever we put out in the Universe is what comes back to us.

– “As you sow, so shall you reap”. This is also known as the “Law of Cause and Effect”.

– Treat others as you want to be treated and so on.

 

2. THE LAW OF CREATION

– Life doesn’t just happen by itself, we need to make it happen.

– Get in the driver’s seat of the ride that is life, don’t just be a passenger.

 

3. THE LAW OF HUMILITY

– One must accept something in order to change it.

– For instance, the first step in the AA process. Can’t stop being a drunk if you don’t accept that you are one.

 

4. THE LAW OF GROWTH

– When we change ourselves, our lives follow suit and change too.

– If you don’t like your life, try changing yourself first before changing others.

 

5. LAW OF RESPONSIBILITY

– We must take responsibility for what is in our lives.

– You are not a helpless victim of life’s events. To some degree at least, your life is what you make it.

 

6. THE LAW OF CONNECTION

– The past, present and future are all connected.

– Yesterday, today and tomorrow, time remains the same.

 

7. THE LAW OF FOCUS

– You can not think of two things at the same time. (Although I disagree – I can!)

– When you focus on spiritual values, it is harder to have lower thoughts such as greed, anger or violence.

 

8. THE LAW OF GIVING AND HOSPITALITY

– Our behavior should match our thoughts and actions.

– Put your money where your mouth is.

– Put your words in action.

– In other words, no hypocrites.

 

9. THE LAW OF HERE AND NOW

– One cannot be present if they are looking backwards.

– If you are fretting over the future, or obsessing over the past, you won’t be able to live in the moment.

 

10. THE LAW OF CHANGE

– History repeats itself until we learn the lessons that we need to change our path.

 

11. THE LAW OF PATIENCE AND REWARD

– The most valuable rewards require persistence.

– No guts, no glory.

 

12. THE LAW OF SIGNIFICANCE AND INSPIRATION

– Rewards are a direct result of the energy and effort we put into it.

– A fundamental law of computer science: junk in, junk out.

– Whatever you put into something is what you get out of it.
