Notice, if you will, the cunning segue between the last post - "Fimbulwinter" - and today's outing, "Ragnarök", with Fimbulwinter being the immediate prelude to the events of Ragnarök.  As cunning as a fox who's just been appointed Professor of Cunning at Oxford University, to be sure.

Coming out of the blue but a welcome surprise all the same, this is a monster free download available through Body Music and it features some pretty cool bands and music.  Unusually, for this type of release, Nazgul has actually heard of some of these bands before (this should be read as a damning critique of Nazgul's limited knowledge, rather than a slight against the bands featured!)  Lord Wind are well known to Nazgul, and scanning the list we have old favourite Dead Man's Hill too.  Along with Uruk Hai, that only leaves 77 new bands to discover....!

Body Music is a label and radio station for Electronic Body Music, Anhalt EBM, Dark Electro, New Beat, Aggrepo, Coldwave, Flexi Pop, Synth Pop, Acid, Future Pop, Neue Deutsche Welle, Neofolk, Electronic 80´s, Rhythmic & Old school Industrial, Martial, Miami Bass, Street Beats, Freestyle and lots more besides.  And if you understand what all those genres represent then you're a better man than I am, Gunga Din.  Apologies for the 'shouting' in the track listing, by the way, it's a straight lift from the label's website and Nazgul couldn't face retyping all 80 songs and artists in lower case!

Nevertheless, if Ragnarök is approaching it's a chance to enjoy (at track #65) a new Uruk Hai song, 'A Blade Of Fire', which is currently unreleased and taken from the upcoming split album with Italian project Skoll.  And to encourage you to check out this material yourself, Nazgul will remain enigmatically quiet about what he thinks of it, at least until that Skoll split disc is in hand!  Suffice to say it is of epic stature, more heroic than a Viking funeral, and mixes traditional keyboards with some tasty guitar licks.

A venture well worth supporting, so get on with it!
