Editorial Reviews

There will be at least one resurrection on Easter Sunday, 2010, when Blood Axis unveils its latest work, Born Again. The 2nd full-length studio album in the group's 20-yr history, Born Again signals startling developments & radical maturation. Over the course of the 12 tracks that comprise Born Again, Blood Axis explores an epic yet human universe in which gods are summoned, kingdoms rise, riddles unlocked, love is lost, and worlds crumble. Underpinning the album & propelling much of the music is the traditional Irish drum the bodhrán. Moynihan's ominous voice is well matched by Annabel Lee's elfin intonations, just as her violin finds a perfect counterpoint in Robert Ferbrache's protean guitar parts. Guest musicians add tasteful embellishments. Expressive lyrics have roots in ancient & modern poetry, archaic invocations, and tragic laments. Alongside modern English & German, songs are sung in medieval 10th-century Old English & 13th-century German. The end result is unforgettable.

With epic comeback albums from Blood Axis and Burzum, and a forthcoming one from Swans, it almost feels like we're back in the 90s again. 'Born Again' is the best thing Blood Axis have done and will stand the test of time far better than their early work, simply because it's more musical. Opener 'Song of the Comrade' is a warm, strong setting of the beautiful poem by Herybert Menzel adapted by Miguel Serrano for 'NOS: Book of the Resurrection'. Allerseelen already used this poem on 'Flamme' in the original German, but here it is in English set to a rousing chorus that could almost be the Dubliners or the Pogues. "If you fall, I'll fight on for the both of us..."

Highland pipes and other resonant instruments complement lyrics in Old English, Middle High German, and the modern varieties of those languages, with songwriting as inventive as it is captivating. Despite the sadness of some lyrics, the overall mood is inspiring and positive. The catchiest piece is 'Churning and Churning', with lyrics by Moynihan about keeping your head and staying focussed on the quest for wisdom, even in the most uninspiring surroundings. 'Erwachen in der Nacht' is a beautiful setting of a Hermann Hesse poem. 'The Path' is about climbing the steep road to the stars, with Annabel Lee's vocals sounding a bit like a folkish Julee Cruise.

The outro is from Orwell's '1984', and seems to mirror Moynihan's disillusionment with politics, implying that the only way to fight the system is by passing knowledge from individual to individual over time. Maybe so, I don't know. Whatever works. Great album, regardless.

I haven't heard this band in years, great to see them return, if you liked the Gospel of inhumanity or Blot you will appreciate this one. The album is full of strange and moody sounds and unusual lyrics,not all in English. It is not easy listening and it may take a few listens to fully appreciate it, my favourate tracks are Churning and Churnind, the Vortex & Song of the comrade.
