I'd like to keep this thread as open to various traditions as possible.
It is dedicated to the beliefs that fall outside the major World Religions, and their style of worship and music.
This thread is for the shamans, the followers of the ancestors, goddesses and gods of old.

Perhaps it's a song about paganism, or about a theme (like Valhalla) which could be any style from heavy metal to folk.

I'd also like to encourage networking on songs, concerts or performances that facilitated practices associated with paganism, like trance, or mystical experiences.
Maybe you became interested in a group, and had an out-of-body experience, or started shape-shifting to their music?
This happened to me.

Of course a danger is that definitions become too open-ended, and the rave, trance-music, metal, folk (various ethnic music), and New Age/World Music genres can be useful to pagans.
If you do post something without a particular pagan theme or background, then please explain how it was useful to you as a pagan, or within the context of a pagan experience (don't just post a rave song, without indicating why as a pagan - there's other threads for certain styles of music).

Any language is welcome, but as far as possible a short explanation of a chant or song is always nice.

Whether it's just a song about celebrating Pagan Pride, or a drumming piece to share, be welcome and enjoy!

I'll start with a pagan pride song.
Tyr - Hold The Heathen Hammer High.

Corney, overproduced, trite but one of my guilty pleasures. All that stuff from Napalm...

Are there any songs that are actually, you know, good?

Wardruna - Live at Castlefest.

Singing in Norwegian, Wardruna give remarkable performances with a number of traditional European instruments and singing styles.

I began doing fitness work-outs to them, and noticed the routine seemed to go twice as fast.

Not too long ago, I was listening to this relatively short concert and suddenly I had become a raven.
I'm not sure how to explain it, and it only lasted a few seconds, but it was invigorating!
After all the hippie things I've tried in the past, all it took was not eating for a while, and rhythmic breathing, and it wasn't even expected.
At that stage I had given up up on things like that, and then - WHAM!

Does this work as Pagan? think its technically Black Metal? But I suppose that left to debate about tr00 kult.

My descent is the story of everyman.


In the black-tognue.

Yeah, definitely.
I didn't want just another metal thread, but the themes are relevant.
Also the gnostics, and the theistic and atheist Satanists.
They also fall outside mainstream into hidden or "occult" traditions.
That's a bit controversial, since pagans have been trying to rid themselves from Satanic-panic associations, but I'm not going to exclude any tradition.
Some may be a bit more dramatic; some may be quite mundane.

First thing that came to my mind was Of the Wand and the Moon .. Definitely pagan



There are plenty of metal bands that fit the bill but like you said, there's already a metal thread or two so I'll spare you

The West African Djembe Drum.
Mainly spread since the 1990s, it's appeal is to some mainstream music, but mainly pagan forms of worship.
A very convenient way for various styles of drumming and chanting.

Here it is played in Mali, where my djembe drum comes from.

South Africa's youngest white sangoma, or traditional healer.

www.enca.com...

I'm glad his path was so clear, although I'm more drawn to my own ancestry.
But I guess there will always be some hybrid culture, or inter-connectivity.
Even in the mainstream religions, there is little evidence that they just arrived without tropes from older or other versions.
