Chp 249. MM: Krypteria – The Night all Angels cry


To celebrate this week’s glorious Monday by taking part in
Lady Java’s “Monday Music”, I give you Krypteria, one of the lesser known symphonic gothic bands, but nevertheless, one of my favorites.

As we all know, symphonic gothic is no longer a Scandinavian domain. Sirenia’s latest frontwoman Ailyn is Spanish, Battlelore’s vocalist Kaisa is from Indonesia, Dremora’s vocalist Julian is from Brazil and there are loads of symph-goth bands emerging out of Japan, Australia and even Turkey.

Likewise, what sets this band Krypteria apart from many of the other symph-goth bands in Europe is that although the band members are from Germany, their vocalist is of Korean origin! And man is she hot!

I would like to dedicate two songs of Krypteria for this week’s Monday Music – “The Night all Angels cry” and “Lost”. Love them lots!

There are no music videos yet, so I am embedding just the youtube music links. But hey, look at the bright side – the files will load much faster on your slow connection as its only music! Hence you do not have any excuse for skipping them. Please do spend just 5 minutes of your precious time listening to them. I assure you, you’ll love them!

And a few pics of Krypteria to brighten up your Monday Blues!

So this is my post for Monday Music. It’s just my second MM, but now I am planning to do this regularly and share some of my favorite symph-goth music. This is also a great platform to promote some of the absolutely amazing Mizo songs to the rest of the world! Next MM will definitely be a song by some of our talented Mizo artists. Watch this space, all my dear blog friends from S.E.Asia to S.Africa to the rest of the world, and get ready to be amazed at what these unsung artists can do!

Cheers. Monday rocks!

Your post prompted me to read up on this: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Symphonic_gothic_metal

Very interesting...

I liked The Night All Angels Cry...

illusionaire said...

It is interesting :-) What I love about this genre is the sultry female vocalists and the symphonic music amidst the beat of metal. Glad you like the song bro.

nancy said...

illusionaire said...

Thanx nancy. You too :-)

Marites said...

I thought I won't like the songs but surprisingly, I did like both of them. Have to agree Ji-in Cho looks sexy and tough at the same time:) My MM is up too.

illusionaire said...

@ dolrep: wowwww. Thank you for such kind words, though I know I definitely do not deserve what you said about me on your blog. Also glad you like the music.

@ Marites: The thing with Symphonic Gothic Metal is that when people hear the word "Goth" or "Metal" they immediately assume its going to be one of those loud banging clanging metal music :-) But actually, its very soft and "operatic" on most occasions. Soothing and relaxing to listen to.

Carleen said...

I'd never heard of this genre prior to reading your entry for today and listening to the songs. It's not exactly my cup of tea, but I sure do appreciate learning something new! Thanks for sharing. :)

@ Mesjay: Its actually a collage of different pictures of Angels, and its not the official video. The guy who uploaded this song included these pictures in the video, maybe so that we wont stare at a blank screen while listening to the song on youtube :)
