  • Mongol Heavy Metal

    Really exists. The group is called the HU Band. My wife played some of it for me, and it's flat ODD. It's actually music, not like most metal stuff. But I'd never imagined a rock group with throat singing before. This has nothing to do with this game, but on the other hand I feel I know a few of you a little bit and something just OUT there might tickle a few of you.

    Been following them for a while! Love their videos. Another band that's similar is Hanggai (try the song "Wuji", not metal by any means but kinda Mongolean folk punk).

      I've never listened to Mongolian music before. Interesting stuff (both musically & politically) and surprisingly listenable. I like what looks like a two-string violin-like thing.

        I really liked Hanggai. My daughter recommended the group Steve N Seagull. She can't remember if they're from Iceland or Finland. The instruments are recognizable but not what you'd expect at ALL to be played together (especially the accordion).

          Speaking of out there: xttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HXm8JdC4k4c&list=PL00483598CF5718C6&index= 16&t=0s
          I love the reactions of the people in the market when Archy Jay walks through it while playing.

          I've seen Steve N Seagulls videos. At first I assumed they were from Appalachia but they're actually from Finland.
          They love accordion music there; you can get a degree from Helsinki University in accordion studies. I saw a show where 30 women from the university played as a band.

              I really liked that song. (Is it my imagination, or did I detect a little bit of "Enter Sandman" in that tune.) Last year, I found myself in Siegburg Germany for a night during the Christmas season. They have a Medieval-themed Christmas market there. There was a band (sometimes marching through the festival, sometimes playing on stage) consisting of just bagpipes & drums. I loved it.

                It's not your imagination, Spike. That was cool experience you had in Germany.

                Your story reminded me of the time we were at a park by the ocean at sunset on a hot summer day. On one of the small islands adjacent a guy climbed to the top of the rocky outcrop and began to play the bagpipes. (We didn't see him until he started to play. He climbed up the back side of the rock.) The sound carried so clearly over the surface of the water. As the sun set he and the pipes were silhouetted. It was a lovely experience and completely unexpected.

                  I should have read the text. I was too busy watching the video. On the second watching, it was all obvious. I may have been distracted the first time around.
