Vapour Lemuel perfect blend of gregorian and metal. Each track reminds us the importance of our doctrinal statements the were established from the reformation 500yrs ago. I always enjoy this album. Favorite track: Soli Deo Gloria.

Raemar Chant, metal, acoustic guitar and sounds of nature all simultaneously calm, yet exhilarate me, and here they all are, swathed in the luminescent cloak of originality. A beautifully unique sound that captures. Favorite track: Sola Fide.

Jason Sullivan A lot of bands will use monk chanting to accent their metal. Epta Astera; on the other hand, uses metal to accent the chanting......and I LOVE it. Favorite track: Solo Christo.
willis thumbnail
willis Gregorian folk metal - a Unique band (the only one of its kind) To the black shrieks to the male choir, from an atmosphere of guitars, to the calmness of nature. This music very much describes a memory of an intense jog through the forest, and your stop for a breather, as you hear the birds in the trees. The lyrical themes: bout the Protestant Reformation, you can find on band's website a thesis for each song. Favorite track: Sola Fide.

Authoritas Scripturæ sacræ propter quam ei debetur Fides et observantia, non ab ullius aut hominis aut Ecclesiæ pendet testimonio, sed a solo Ejus authore Deo Qui est ipsa veritas Eoque est a nobis recipienda, quoniam est Verbum Dei.
Solo Christo 07:07
Ecce agnus Dei Ecce qui tollit peccatum mundi crucifixus, mortuus, et sepultus descendit ad inferna tertia die resurrexit a mortuis ascendit ad coelos sedet ad dexteram Dei Patris omnipotentis inde venturus est judicare vivos et mortuos
Sola Gratia 06:24
This hymn of thanks O Lord we bring For by thy grace alone we sing Hadst thou not looked on us in grace We would remain a perished race Thy spirit we could not resist Who breathed new life into our breasts By grace alone, this doctrine pure Our only comfort doth secure
Sola Fide 06:26
Der Stoff meiner Hoffnung Und ein Nichtzweiflung das man nicht sieht Durch den Glauben merken wir daß die Welt durch Gottes Wort fertig ist Ein feste Burg ist unser Gott Ein gute Wehr und Waffen Er hilft uns frei aus aller Not Die uns jetzt hat betroffen Denn sagen wir die Geben zu verstehen Daß wir ein Vaterland suchen Nun begehren wir eine himmlischen Stadt Darum schämt sich Gott ihrer nicht Zu heißen ihr Gott Er hat ihnen eine Stadt zubereitet
There is no other The sun is a trainride of your glory The voices of the throng implode into love, into surprise At joy unsurpassable Glory revealed Your children have become the doxology of your love And I am aware There is none like you
