Here's a myspace rip of demo tracks by another Swedish BM project, which appears to be an one man band led by Eric S. Spires of Belziar may be not an explicitly RABM project, but Eric definitely knows about our movement, and he even posted a link to SoB's myspace in our facebook group. Moreover, it indeed looks like African history and mythology could provide a lot of potential source material for BM lyrics - some of these tracks are obviously inspired by African history (namely Great Zimbabwe and Namibia). The music is your typical Scandinavian BM, quite good for a first demo.


  1. do you know if it would be possible for me to get the lyrics of these tracks? I don't have facebook or remember my myspace login from years ago, so I can't contact him thaat way. I really liked this music, and am curious about the African history / mythology based lyrics.

  2. I know for a fact that "Great Zimbabwe" is about the brutal excavation of Great Zimbabwe. Europeans saw that structure as proof that the white man inhabited africa first, ("africans could never have constructed such a magnificent thing") hence they were only reclaiming it. They tore down the towers and extracted valuable metals from between the rocks.
