Rock/Metal Spotify/Soundcloud Playlists

The Men of the Fifth World (2000)

fifthworldDocumentary: THE MEN OF THE FIFTH WORLD (2000)

An enchanting and mystical view of life through one of the elders, who shares his history with the filmmakers. A detailed story seen through the painted rocks left by their ancestors to the hunting methods used for survival. A look into their dance, their song, and their spiritual essence.

Heavier bands that are of interest at moment 12/16/16

betray_my_secrets_-_betray_my_secretsinhearts-2times-of-grace-strength-in-numbers-single-2010thehealing

BETRAY MY SECRETS
This band is no longer together but I found them while doing search on another band associated with this band, SHIVA IN EXILE as well as a band called SpiRitual. Formed in Germany in 1997 . Favorite song from them is “From the Goddess” which is a heavier version and a mix of “We All Come From the Goddess” from Moving Breath (YouTube) and the “Witches Chant”, which I remember from the band Inkubus Sukkubus (YouTube)

IN HEARTS WAKE – (Website) (Facebook) (Twitter)
Band out of Australia. Fell in love with their Earthwalker CD which came out in 2014. Really looking forward to seeing them when they come to the states in 2017.

TIMES OF GRACE
Another band that is no longer together and only put one album out. Original singer for KILLSWITCH ENGAGE and is now re-singing for them. This was one of the side albums before going back to Killswitch Engage. Had an opportunity to interview him when he was in Times of Grace. Great vocalist.

THE HEALING (Bandcamp) (Facebook)
Actually just found this band today when I was looking up links for previous bands listed above. Their “Elevate” CD came out earlier this year. From Canada. Really enjoying this first listen to them.
