    They're just apolitical that's all, but are I suppose fed up by having their band name read as a synonym for "Sieg Heil" (Sig = A Sun Rune, Hagal = Hail in English, the very being either Hagel or Heil in German). Being apolitical, but only religiously interested, and then being considered as a political band, I'm not surprised they're offended.

    I do not find them to be particulary Neo-Folkish.
    Neofolk includes sub-genres like "Neoclassical", Folk Noir, and to some also Martial Industrial, Post Rock, tradition-themed Darkwave, etc.

    Never heard of them.

    The small amount of Neo-Folk bands who do not seem to pocess a skeleton or two in their closets, or who at the very least are apolitical are actually German bands.
    NewClear Horizon/Unity M. is an English artist. We actually have him as a member on here, good nationalist and comrade of many years.

    Halgadom are officially apolitical, but their members are also involved in political activities, some of them openly Nationalist.

    Tenhi is apolitical, a Finnish band. They're more concerned about the musical side of things, it would seem. But an excellent group.

    But obviously, these bands do not exist to me since they sing in German and I am not particulary well-versed in that language enough to enjoy it in songs.
    Then you haven't understood the first lesson of music: It's the music, not the vocals or lyrics which express the feeling of the music. The vocals help to interpret the music, not the other way around: Instrumental songs are expressive in their own right, Vocal-only songs rarely are (lest they're some type of Acapella ).

    And that's me as a vocalist and fervent lyricist saying that.

    You should follow his latest news, as he did confirm the jewishness of his wife multiple times, she even looks like a typical jewess.
    Perhaps indeed then. I stopped following the rumours about whether or not she was Jewish some 3 years ago or so, at the time I could find very little on the matter, and at the time it was still heavily disputed.

    Other than that - as to the rest that I said. Even if he should have wandered aglay now and gone beyond the acceptable, perhaps it should soothen the "aware" listener to highlight that during a long period in the past, especially most of the 90s when most of his important works were released, he was consciously walking more rightful paths.

    As for my case I refuse to list such bands as my favorites as to not support racial ennemies financially by buying their products. At the very least, I'll download their stuff for free once in awhile off torrents.ru or nnm.ru whilst raising to them my middle finger.
    Yea, excellent - talk about enemies but then download it off Russian servers. The irony!
    -In kalte Schatten versunken... /Germaniens Volk erstarrt / Gefroren von Lügen / In denen die Welt verharrt-
    -Die alte Seele trauernd und verlassen / Verblassend in einer erklärbaren Welt / Schwebend in einem Dunst der Wehmut / Ein Schrei der nur unmerklich gellt-
    -Auch ich verspüre Demut / Vor dem alten Geiste der Ahnen / Wird es mir vergönnt sein / Gen Walhalla aufzufahren?-

    The way they say it, is sounds as if it was written by typical prepubescent reds more than just modest people who do not want their music to be associated with NS.

    There is still a difference between traditional Neo-Folk and Folk songs altered by say neo-classicalism.

    I am sorry but googling this name did not bring in any concrete results.

    I'll give them a listen then, thank you kindly for the recommendation.

    Well I still find it hard to seat around and listen to the music of someone that is diametrically opposed to everything I am and everything I stand for.

    Clearly this is the same case for most people, otherwise Skadi members would have been mourning the death of “Michael Jackson” the king of poop like everyone else.

    I agree that his 90's material are actually pretty good, but it is all in the past now. Try to the a listen to his newest and last album from 2007 “Into The Woods”, you'll see what I mean.

    What does it matter, if it is piratebay.net, mininova.org, btjunkie.org or torrents.ru?

    First nnm.ru is not a server, but a place were people post their download links to rapidshare and such.

    As for torrents, what does it matter from which country server I download stuff from?

    Question Neo-Folk/Post-Punk

    I've listened to a lot of the music listed on here (downloaded Helrunar and Hagalaz' Runedance), but I still can't find much music that has heathen lyrics that I enjoy. My musical background comes from 80's punk and post-punk, and there's a tad bit of 80's black metal I like, but a lot of this new stuff I can't get into (too much production, not creative, most modern metal all sounds the same to me).

    I'm a big Death in June fan, and I'm wondering if there is any music who's sound is similar (doesn't have to be heathen, though). I've listened to some "associated acts" like Current 93 and I couldn't get into it. From what I've listened to from Blood Axis I liked.

    Is there anything like Death in June when it comes to neo-folk?

    The obvious one would be Sol Invictus as they are fronted by Tony Wakeford of A Death in June. You could also take a look at Von Thronstahl, Darkwood or Der Blutharsch. I like trying the various Neo Folk compilations such as Neo Form (free download) or John Barleycorn Reborn (British Dark Folk) as they give you a taste of the many groups out there.

    From my experience is that a big part of the Neofolk bands are more experimental music then Neofolk.

    I like Neofolk but it is hard for me to find pure Neofolk that i of course also like.

    I was a big fan of Neo Folk and Martial Industrial some years back, and still listen to some of it here and there.... but I have to agree with some posts that call to task the dedication and honesty of certain Neo Folk acts to what they are professing.....the majority of the bands / acts involved in this scene were singing of a sort of naive and romantic European redemption and using Third Reich imagery mearly for "shock value" and as a fashion statement! Certainly there are true denizens of this scene....playing the music because it speaks to them and to their European sensibilities......but the sheer number of acts that abandoned, and maligned the original "ethos" due to pressure put on them for their content and imagery shows a definitive lack of "backbone" when supporting your craft! Case in point.......Der Blutharsch used to revel in Third Reich / Fascist imagery and soundscapes, but when the heat got a bit TOO hot towards them...Albin Julius turned to a sort of Boyd Rice rehash of biker imagery, 60's psychedelia, and Elvis fetishism.......people stopped caring about Der Blutharsch at that point and they became marginalized. Now.....isn't interesting that Der Blutharsch has once again reverted back to using their "Iron Cross surrounded by Oak Leaves" logo? This is why Neo Folk is hardly relevant these days.....it's built on kitsch and imagery only.
    Bah! Enough of the squalor of democratic humanity. It is time to begin to recognise the aristocracy of the sun. The children of the sun shall be lords on the earth.

    I listened to the first two volumes of the Neo-Form compilation, and didn't care for much of it. I like Forseti and Faun from what I've listened to that was posted. I'll try the John Barleycorn Reborn compilation next.
