Sometimes it’s just not beneficial to the extraordinary music in which you are writing about, to go on and on about personal reasons for your adoration. In the case of the sprawling and genuinely stunning, “In Holy Abyss”, from the forthcoming Seismograph album, Tundra Devine - I’ll just say that it’s a remarkable piece of work that speaks on it’s one, but if you feel inclined to take a peek behind the process, then by all means check out the album announcement written by frontman, Jonathan Ioviero, over at the Snowbeast Records page. Anyone who listened to last year’s lovely, Azure Drift, should be excited to continue hearing the progression of a truly talented artist. Highest recommendation.
Re-identification of Viking corpses has revealed that half of their warriors were female.
"Researchers at the University of Western Australia decided to revamp the way they studied Viking remains. Previously, researchers had misidentified skeletons as male simply because they were buried with their swords and shields. (Female remains were identified by their oval brooches, and not much else.) By studying osteological signs of gender within the bones themselves, researchers discovered that approximately half of the remains were actually female warriors, given a proper burial with their weapons.”
Women have always fought. We have always been there, ‘contributing to history’. Our own, modern sexism contributes to the erasure of it.
