I know it's not Friday, but I find this music video so haunting I just felt I had to share it.

It's about the Jonestown mass murder-suicide, and I feel this all masterful cinematography. The victims hidden under sheets, the use of the colour red, the poisoned chalice, the singer beckoning you on into the lethal red. It overall feels like a nightmare, which is very fitting for the subject matter.

Something complete different:

The image editing is superb, too, and I love how everyone's in their best concert hall finery!

I've just discovered a German group called Faun. I understand only a fraction of it, but their music is so good.

English translation

Walpurga's Night
Versions: #1#2#3
To the evening sky arise
Magic tunes tonight
Wild folk and Lilith's kind,
Secretly ride the lurking winds.
 
Let us prowl towards the bonfires
Reach murmuring for the stars,
The good word and also the bad one
We will today carry away and away.
 
In the willows our dreams will sound
And the winds will sing our songs
Let us jump over the fire with the sparkles
In Walpurga's Night!
 
Hear the violins, hear the violins,
The fires have been started!
Follow the roundelay, follow the roundelay
In Walpurga's Night.
 
Boisterous to the playing of the violins
Our nightly roundelay is spinning
And wild and free we join
This ancient magic.
 
Only once in the great circle
Will we dance in this manner,
Until the first light of the morning
Breaks through the web of our dreams.
 
In the willows our dreams will sound
And the winds will sing our songs
Let us jump over the fire with the sparkles
In Walpurga's Night!
 
Hear the violins, hear the violins,
The fires have been started!
Follow the roundelay, follow the roundelay
In Walpurga's Night.

I see your Faun and raise you a Garmarna.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cy44ocuoWhE

English version for you non Swedish people:

 Early one morning before the sun rose up
Before the birds began to sing
The mountain troll proposed to the handsome young man
She had a false tongue
 
Herr Mannelig, herr Mannelig, will you be betrothed to me?
For that, I offer you gifts very gladly
Surely you can answer but yes or no
If you wish to or not
 
To you I wish to give the twelve steeds
That go in the grove of roses
Never has there been any saddles upon them
Nor bridles in their mouths
 
To you I wish to give the twelve mills
That stand between Tillö and Ternö
The stones are made of the reddest gold
And the wheels are silver-laden
 
To you I wish to give a gilded sword
With a blade of fifteen gold rings
And battle how you will [well or badly]
The battle you would surely win
 
To you I wish to give a shirt so new
The best you will want to wear
It [literally: she] was not sewn by needle or thread
But crocheted of white silk
 
Such gifts I would surely accept
If thou wert a Christian [or: pious] woman
However, thou art the worst mountain troll
The spawn of a Neck (water spirit) and the Devil
 
The mountain troll ran out the door
She shakes and wails hard
Had I got the handsome young man
I would have got rid of my plight
 
Herr Mannelig, herr Mannelig, will you be betrothed to me?
For that, I offer you gifts very gladly
Surely you can answer but yes or no
If you wish to or not

You being sarcastic, aren't you :)

My thought was that he was very young, but actually 39 still covers the ZZ Top years, hehe, so I blame it on different countries ;D
Of course, saying this, I know that there are lots of obvious bands of the last 10 years that I never heard about, hehe

Agreed. It might also related to the music genre. Anyone who is interested in Blues (my fav genre) must have heard of ZZ Top, the bearded duo :) It is only natural someone out of the genre hearing for the first time (I was surprised and caught unaware)
