Cry of the Black Birds (2006)

I find Amon Amarth’s music an absolute joy. This clip, too – they are the masters of synchronised headbanging. I am still kicking myself for not going out of my way to see their live concert when they were in Australia a year ago.


Currently Listening To…

I am thoroughly enjoying a podcast series by Fr Timothy Gallagher. He talks about prayer, spiritual discernment, the examen, St Ignatius, contemplation and meditation. I’ve found it really helpful in understanding these concepts in a deeper way.

The podcasts can be found here and here.

Fr Gallagher’s website is here.

Pet (2003)

More Maynard James Keenan and Co. goodness this week, but this time with a different band – A Perfect Circle, whose line up has some overlap with that of Puscifer (see last week’s music posts to hear them).

I saw these guys perform at the Soundwave music festival in Melbourne in 2013.
