ყორღანი – კავკასიონი (Kurgan – Caucasian)

ბედნიერი დღე! I’ve finally found a really good traditional black metal band from Georgia! Heavy on synth and mood, and inaudible growls(in what I hope is Georgian). This is what I’ve been searching for the last 3-4 years! გამომყევი ქვესკნელში სამოგზაუროთ!

Closing out this little excursion into the Georgian music scene, we will take a listen to the album that started my interest of the Georgian language and music, 33a!

Oh, and so sorry for the loooong wait between the reviews, I’ll try to not keep you in the wait for so long.

ივერია – ივერია (Iveria – S/T)

Iveria

Now, I do not confess to have the greatest knowledge about the progressive rock music of the 70’s. Still I do like listening to the classics whenever they play on the radio or when a friend plays a song. And the influence and impact it had on the music timeline is undeniable, and as far as I know, almost every country that got in contact with the American super groups tried for themselves to emulate the style, with some more successful results than others. The countries that were behind the Iron Curtain of the time had a bit more trouble to try their hands on this new music genre. Still, there were the bands that somehow got a green light to record and release an album, influenced by the “capitalist super groups”, and ივერია(Iveria) was one of those bands!

გამარჯობათ! კარგად ხარ? მეც კარგად.  დრო მიიღოს მცირე შევხედოთ ქართული მუსიკის სცენა!

“My, what are those strange chicken scratches? Have I suffered a stroke and can’t read, or have I entered the wrong URL?” Don’t you worry your uneducated mind, what you see above you is the very unique and beautiful language and alphabet of the საქართველოს, or the Georgian people! Georgia, the country not the state, is located in the Caucasian mountain range, between the Black Sea and the Dead Sea, and it shares borders with Azerbaijan, Armenia, Turkey, and Russia. The country has a very unique and vibrant culture which has been a melting pot of both western and eastern culture, but still they have their very own special flair. A land who is very proud of it’s own culture, be it literature, music, or dancing, it’s a shame we don’t take time and notice it. That is why I will dedicate these next reviews of mine to some of the Georgian music that has stuck with me and made me fall in love with the wonderful Georgian language!
