Fields Of The Nephilim : The Nephilim 1988


Fields of the Nephilim
are an English gothic rock band formed in Stevenage , Hertfordshire in 1984. The original line-up consisted of vocalist Carl McCoy , saxophonist Gary Whisker , Tony Pettitt on bass , guitarist Paul Wright and drummer Alexander "Nod" Wright . Following the release of the debut EP Burning the Fields, Whisker left the band to be replaced by Peter Yates as second guitarist.

The band's name refers to a Biblical race of giants or angel-human hybrids , known as the Nephilim . Although they have not received substantial mainstream success , the band's seminal sound has proved highly influential , especially in the genre of gothic rock and , later on , gothic metal and rock noir.




Nefilim
were a race that came to dominate the antediluvian (pre-flood) world , and are referred to in the Bible as the heroes of old , men of renown .
They were reportedly the children born to the "Sons of God" by the "daughters of men". It is also most important to note that they are mentioned almost simultaneous to God's statement that He would destroy the earth by flood , and it seems from this association that their effect upon mankind was one of the primary justifications that brought the destruction.



The sons of God saw that the daughters of men were beautiful, and they married any of them they chose.

Then the LORD said, "My Spirit will not contend with man forever, for he is mortal. His days will be a hundred and twenty years."

The Nephilim were on the earth in those days and also afterward when the sons of God went to the daughters of men and had children by them.

They were the heroes of old , men of renown.


The LORD saw how great man's wickedness on the earth had become, and that every inclination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil all the time.

The LORD was grieved that he had made man on the earth, and his heart was filled with pain.

So the LORD said, "I will wipe mankind, whom I have created , from the face of the earth men and animals , and creatures that move along the ground , and birds of the air for I am grieved that I have made them." ( Genesis 6:1-7 )

LAST EXIT FOR THE LOST

Would you pay life's pleasures to see me
Does it hurt for I want you to remain
I run your hair through in another decade
Summerland holds me in sumerian haze

Pain in places where the lovers mourn
Arranging the play things up and down the hall

Forever remain for every day
My honour remains
Forever remain

Between the spaces along the wall
Appearing faces that disappear at dawn
We're getting closer I can see the door
Closer and closer Kthulhu calls

Forever remain
Forever remain

You'll seek it it'll take a while
You'll seek this if it's a thousand miles
Take what fate brings eternal and desire
I'll change those faces then I take their smile



We're getting close to you I can see the door
Closer and closer or is it there at all

Forever remain
Forever remain


This could be my last regress
Last exit for the lost
This could be my last regress
Last exit for the lost
This could be my last regress
Precious for the lost

FATHERLAND LYRICS

I see houses burning I'm ashamed

You'd better ask yourself

Did I choose something I could regret
Did I do something I should regret

Is this the place I used to call : Fatherland
Is this the place I used to know : as Fatherland

I should regret

Is this the place I used to call : Fatherland
Is this the place I used to know : as Fatherland

The silence is illusion stay awake
I hear children crying in fear and pain
Do cowards ask themselves?

Did I do something I should regret

Is this the place I used to call : Fatherland
Is this the place I used to know : as Fatherland

Search for something you just can't find

Living heads

Swift percision.
Come alive

Whisper youth
???
Your all eternal
Buried inside

See your face
Perception lies still
Time to choose
A new kill

??? of oppression
??? of fear

ON THE OTHER SIDE LYRICS


Do you remember slow-motion-times
With little golden stars?
I see you tumble in the streets
I hold you hand in the cinema
A piece of heaven
In a rotten world
You disappeared in a roaring night
I could die
I cry

On the other side
I'll see you again
On the other side
We'll walk hand in hand
On the other side
I'll see you again
On the other side
We'll walk hand in hand

I saw you again with tears in your eyes
My heart beats hard
Time doesn't move in a picture
But I can't live in the past
Life is easy
If you don't care about the future
And it's easy to smile
If you don't care about the truth
I still love you
But I've changed myself


On the other side
I'll see you again
On the other side
We'll walk hand in hand
On the other side
I'll see you again
On the other side
We'll walk hand in hand

When I see you

The Klingon bastards flies around
always ready for some war
They don't care about any rules at all
as long as they can kill some more

Evil barbarians without discipline
unpredictable death machine



With their cloaking device they remain invisible
until the time has come
to appear right ahead of us
and obliterate everyone

If you ever would give them a helping hand
you can be sure they'll chop off the arm

Never, ever, never trust a Klingon
you will always regret it
Never, ever, never trust a Klingon
you will never forget it

Ozric Tentacles Live 11 / 11


Venerate Industries proudly presents
OZRIC TENTACLES + support NECHAYEVSCHINA
ΠΕΜΠΤΗ 11 ΝΟΕΜΒΡΙΟΥ 2010 @ GAGARIN 205 CLUB

ΟΙ OZRIC TENTACLES ΕΠΙΣΤΡΕΦΟΥΝ ΣΤΗΝ ΑΘΗΝΑ!!!
Πάνε χρόνια που οι επισκέψεις των Ozric Tentacles ήταν ετήσια συνάντηση. Πάνε χρόνια από την τελευταία τους εμφάνιση στην πόλη μας όταν ο κόσμος αρνούνταν να αποχωρήσει και μας εξέφραζαν τις ευχαριστίες τους και το σεβασμό τους για αυτό το υπέροχο κοινό της Αθήνας όπως οι ίδιοι το χαρακτήρισαν. Πάνε 25 χρόνια από τότε που η μπάντα απόφασισε να λάβει μορφή σε ένα δωρεάν φεστιβάλ στο Στόουνχεντζ. Πλησιάζει ο καιρός όμως που θα έχουμε την ευκαιρία να τους απολαύσουμε ξανά ζωντανά στη σκηνή του Μύλου.

Οι Ozric Tentacles έχουν φτάσει αισίως στον 28ο δίσκο τους, Yum Yum Tree εμπνευσμένο από το Jabberwocky ποίημα του Λούις Κάρολ, και οι πωλήσεις τους πλησιάζουν τα 1 εκατομμύριο αντίτυπα, πρωτόγνωρο για ένα συγκρότημα που δεν είχε ποτέ την υποστήριξη μιας μεγάλης δισκογραφικής. Στην τελευταία τους κυκλοφορία κάνουν μια στροφή στις ρίζες τους με το καθαρό ορχηστρικό παραμυθένιο space ροκ που μας προσφέρουν.

Η μουσική των Ozric Tentacles είναι γνωστή. Θες να την χαρακτηρίσεις ψυχεδελικό ροκ, προοδευτικό ροκ, jazz fusion; Δεν κάνεις λάθος. Μία ψυχεδελική μίξη μπασογραμμών, ηχητικών εφέ, πλήκτρων και κιθάρας που οδηγούν σε ανατολικές κλίμακες. Φυσικά οι funk ρυθμοί και οι επιρροές από την jazz fusion δεν λείπουν ποτέ. Όπως δε θα λείπουν επί σκηνής οι ηλεκτρικές και ακουστικές κιθάρες, τα φλάουτα, τα ξυλόφωνα.
Την βραδιά θα ανοίξουν οι δικοί μας Nechayevschina. Οι Nechayevschina ξεκίνησαν ως κολλάζ εφηβικών απωθημένων για μία αυτιστική πλην ξεχωριστή μουσική. Η ενηλικίωση δεν άργησε να έρθει παρ’ όλα αυτά και η μπάντα κάνει σταθερά βήματα προόδου και εξερεύνησης ηχητικών τοπίων από το 2008, με το φάντασμα του kraut rock να συνεχίζει να πλανάται επίμονα.

Τιμάμε τη νέα επίσκεψη τους στην πόλη μας την Πέμπτη 11 Νοεμβρίου 2010 στο Gagarin 205!!!

Oι Πόρτες ανοίγουν στις 21:00 μμ
Εναρξη 21:30 μμ

Eloy : Eloy 1971



Eloy was the debut album from German progressive rock band Eloy. It was released in 1971 , and is the most unknown album of the band .

The name Eloy is based on the book " The Time Machine " by H.G. Wells.

The Time Machine is a science fiction novella by H. G. Wells, published in 1895 for the first time and later adapted into at least two feature films of the same name , as well as two television versions, and a large number of comic book adaptations. It indirectly inspired many more works of fiction in many media.

This 32,000 word story is generally credited with the popularisation of the concept of time travel using a vehicle that allows an operator to travel purposefully and selectively. The term "time machine", coined by Wells, is now universally used to refer to such a vehicle. Wells introduces an early example of the Dying Earth subgenre as well.




Herbert George Wells (21 September 1866 – 13 August 1946) was an English author, now best known for his work in the science fiction genre. He was also a prolific writer in many other genres, including contemporary novels, history, politics and social commentary. Together with Jules Verne, Wells has been referred to as "The Father of Science Fiction".

ELOY


See the machine and follow me
and let us touch this history
stop in a time of changing season
see a land of nobody
people sitting 'round a river
consumptive nice and with garmets on
they are eating fruits
and do love the peace
and feel so happy all their time
they are called Eloy in this old story
but I think the are living in my mind
they are the world
I want to stay here
in this land of charity
spend my life
in a land of freedom.





VOICE OF REVOLUTION



I'm sure, the time will come
when we shall overcome
there's no more hesitation
for the sun will greet the day
I know you get your morning
people are near
ready to hear
trying to understand you
you still remember how people forget someone
therefore you have to call
up their minds in all
and if you realise
you can get your price
I want to know, how you just feel
when everyone get his meal
when freedom bells are ringing then.

Producer Ralf Hutter Florian Schneider

"Tour de France" is a song by Kraftwerk. It was first issued in June 1983, peaking at #22 in the UK singles chart. It is notable for the use of sampled voices and mechanical sounds associated with cycling that were used to supplement a simple electro-percussion pattern – an approach Kraftwerk have used on earlier tracks such as "Metal on Metal" (from Trans-Europe Express) and "Numbers" (from Computer World). The music is credited to Ralf Hutter, Florian Schneider and Karl Bartos; the lyrics are credited to Ralf Hutter and Maxime Schmitt, a French label associate of the band. The melody appears to quote a fragment of the opening section of Paul Hindemith's “Sonata for Flute and Piano” (“Heiter Bewegt”).
This 1953 Hungarian postage stamp was the source for the cycling motif.

For Kraftwerk, Tour De France was a departure from the technological tone of the two previous albums, The Man-Machine and Computer World. Instead, the song is a joie de vivre celebration of cycling, marking the group's increasing interest in the sport. Of the current line-up, Ralf Hutter and Fritz Hilpert have been known to take part in cycling events.

The track was originally recorded with the intention of being included on the subsequently abandoned Techno Pop album. The single was originally released on seven and twelve inch vinyl, and as a cassette-single. It has the most complicated set of variants of any Kraftwerk song, having been variously edited and remixed to the point that there is no completely definitive version.

The sleeve design depicted the band on road bikes in a paceline, superimposed across an angled representation of the French national flag. The design was adapted from an image that had appeared on a 1953 Hungarian postage stamp, one of a sport-themed set commemorating the opening the Nepstadion (People's Stadium) in Budapest.

The piece was also included in the 1984 film, Breakin'; also known as Breakdance internationally. Although the song did appear briefly in the film, Kraftwerk did not let the song appear on the movie soundtrack; instead, a cover version of the song was released by a group called “10 Speed”. [Wiki]

EDIKA











Édika is the nom de plume of Édouard Karali, a French comics artist, born December 17, 1940 in Heliopolis, Egypt, who is renowned for his distinctively absurd style. A number of his comic strips have been translated into English (published by Knockabout Comics), Spanish, Italian (in the magazine Totem comics), German (published by Alpha Comics) and Swedish (published by Epix).

Initially working for the advertising industry in Egypt, he moved to France where his works were published in the comics magazines Pilote, Charlie Mensuel and Psikopat, the magazine of his brother Paul Carali.[1] A major milestone in his career as a comics artist was his cooperation with Gotlib, becoming a main contributor to the comics magazine Fluide Glacial.

A typical Edika comics episode involves a plot structured in a complex and often inconsequential fashion, filled with verbose dialogues and a lot of meta-references. Most of those episodes don't have an ending.



Édika, together with Marcel Gotlib, is one of the main authors of the satirical magazine Fluide Glacial. Born in Egypt, Édika started his career in advertising illustration, but soon published in the renowned French comic magazines Charlie Mensuel and Fluide Glacial. He found his true home base in the latter magazine. His work also appeared in Pilote and his brother Paul Carali's Psikopat. Édika is known for his strange and absurd humor, which makes him one of the true masters of French humor. His work is collected in several albums, such as 'Débiloff Profondikum', 'Pyjama Blouze', 'Melon Bago' and 'Pom-Pom-Pidou-Waah'.
