It must be ties of karma from the distant past that have destined you to become my disciple at a time like this. – Nichiren Daishonin, The Heritage of The Ultimate Law of Life, WND1, p217
Or the Inter-Connectedness of all things
Like ALL people in Western Europe, I’m a racial mongrel. And I observe that various aspects of my mixed genetic tribal past are manifested at different times within me. I know for a fact that I am Angle, Saxon, Danish, Orkadian, Welsh (i.e.ancient Briton or Celt). There’s probably a few more if I looked.
So it is with Till Lindemann, Apocalyptica, Amon Duul 2 etc. Such was the thought that occurred to me about a present predilection for Germanic gloom. At other times I have a preference for light-hearted jollity or Gallic emotion, naff musicals and daft adverts, crude humour or technical wizardry, melodic orchestrations or classical power. And so it goes.
Apart from the non-modern drums, there’s not much difference between Helden here or Amon Duul II doing Deutsche Nepal, below. The basal snarling, the home-made “Choir Organ”, saga-like tales of a glorious and courageous armed past…
