The Snow Fell
by R. Belser
The two sets of valuations, good/bad and good/evil, have waged a
terrible battle on this earth, lasting many millenia; and just as surely as
the second set has for a long time now been in the ascendant, so surely are there
still places where the battle goes on and the issue remains in suspension...
The watchwords of the battle, written in characters which have remained legible throughout
human history, read: "Rome vs. Israel, Israel vs. Rome." No battle has ever been more
momentous than this one.
There are some episodes in history which stand out in relief from the background of all other
human events, because (in hindsight) they illuminate all that has preceded them and color the meaning
of all that has followed.
The rise and fall of the Third Reich meets this criterion, for had Germany not been defeated,
the battle of which Nietzsche speaks would have been won by "Rome" --the Aryan peoples of the
world--over fifty years ago.
The existence of this Website, as one of the antibodies striving to forestall and reverse the
genocide of Aryans, certainly is just a miniscule part of the nearly infinite array of
consequences of that tragedy.
Unlike Alexander, Caesar, or Napoleon, Hitler's vision encompassed a goal beyond the attainment of
conquest for its own sake. From its beginnings the main enemy of the Third Reich--metaphysically as well as
politically-- was Communism and the ethos from which it sprang. The conquest of the countries
of Western Europe by Germany was necessary for the same reason Alexander subdued Egypt before
marching into Persia: to secure the rear. The geography of the continent, with Germany bordered by
so many other European countries, made her vulnerable to a stag-at-bay situation
(as Frederick the Great had discovered two centuries earlier).
The meaning of that defeat for subsequent generations is crystallized in the story of the German Army
on the Eastern Front: the exultant hopes brought to fruition by the its first great triumphs;
the deceptive mildness of that autumn and the appalling sufferings and casualties which the Russian
winter brought--a winter which saw the death of the Great Dream: a Europe whose blood was no longer
to be drained by the Levantine curse, whose soul would be liberated from the nature-hating doctrines
instilled by the Semitic features of Christianity, its secular heir, Marxism, and the Jewish
"culture of critique" which had taken root and fastened upon all aspects of European culture.
Two especially moving songs have been written with the German experience on the Eastern Front
as a theme--The Snow Fell by the well-known English band Skrewdriver (covered equally effectively
by today's premier band Rahowa) and Russian Winter by Bound for Glory. If you've heard neither
of these songs, you owe it to yourself to do so, because in both songs the music and lyrics
were born for each other and are enspirited with a full sense of what that loss has meant.
The Great Dream spoke not only to Germans, but to the best and brightest among young Europeans
of that generation; the Waffen SS was composed of the cream of young European manhood. The culture
of Germany's Third Reich resonated compellingly with the Aryan spirit---so much so that, to this day, much
art produced during that period in Germany remains under lock and key because the Allies and
their New World Order successors are (rightly) apprehensive about its power to arouse emotions
of racial pride and solidarity.
And yet...the Great Dream never truly died, and it is manifesting itself in the music being written and
performed by German nationalist bands today--bands such as Kraftschlag, Noie Werte, Landser and
others. The music itself is identifiably unique and shows an originality which marks it as a
genuinely cultural phenomenon: that is, it is the product of a living, growing spirit and
Weltanschauung--and that is something that can't be contrived, faked, or effectively
countered by Germany's "hate-speech" laws, which recently saw the thought-police destroy thousands
of CDs and make another group of arrests in what has become a campaign to silence those Germans who
want Germany to survive--as Germany.
The attempt to describe music in words is foredoomed unless it is music of a kind heard before, and
even in that case, the inherent limitations are great. When we're dealing with music of a new,
distinctly different kind from what we've heard before, it's really impossible. What I can
tell you, is that you need not speak or understand German in order to understand what this music
is saying--and saying beautifully--and to be moved by it.
The general framework is Rock, but it's Rock that's unmistakeably Aryan and German. Some
of the music is a legitimate descendant of Classical music (the band Noie Werte is the best example),
but the synthesis is so unforced, fused, and organic that it's nothing like other Rock
music about which the claim of Classical influence has been made. It is at once fully Rock
and fully European music.
In its beginnings a decade or so ago, pro-White music had perhaps three or four good bands, while
the majority of the music in that category was simply raw, loud, and derivative. That's no longer true.
There are a surprising number of great bands, American, French, English and there are worthy
representatives of it from all of the European countries as well as North America. The number of
such bands is increasing at a surprising rate--which means that the number of listeners
of this music is growing. This is a very hopeful sign in an otherwise bleak landscape, because
if the battle for White survival is to be won, it cannot remain a purely political struggle but
must permeate and percolate culturally.
On my own Website, I have a page which gives the lyrics in German of some of the songs I think
are especially fine, and have also rendered them into English in an adjacent column, for those
who would like to understand what the lyrics say.
At the bottom of this page, I've provided the URL of that lyrics page, as well as the URL for
the Odin's Lounge Website from which the songs of these bands and others can be downloaded in zip format.
I think that you'll not only enjoy the music for itself, but find a respite, in listening to it,
from what has become a culture inimical to our race.
