Krypteria Performs "Victoriam Speramus"


News of a heavy metal band "fronted by second generation Korean Cho Ji-In" — German-Korean Rocks German Charts. Not my cup of tea, even judging from the criteria of the genre's own standards. Heavy metal subgenres are legion, however, so this probably fits in somewhere. (Symphonic metal is what Krypteria plays, Wikipedia tells us.) It is good to hear that the official language of the Church still commands respect, and that an ethnic Asian can so smoothly apply herself to such a Eurocentric cultural milieu as metal.

EMI copyright-fascists have blocked Americans from seeing the video you linked to.

I found a lower quality alternate to stick it to the man. :)

Down with IP! That happens a lot in to me in Korea

Yours has the advantage of being subtitulado al español.

I'll leave the one I posted up for metallurgists outside the USA.

Terrible to think that, along with the Great Firewall of China, and the Arabian Firewall, we have to add the private/public Amperial Firewall.

And yes, I hope that last phrase become a commonly used portmanteau.
