    is also an excellent album so I suppose it s faint damnation Ian Read collaborated heavily with the members of the American experimental neotraditional band Blood Axis and contributed to a self professed heathen pagan journal edited by Michael Moynihan called Tyr Since Birdking Fire Ice has been fairly quiet but hopefully this will not last Beliefs Since Fire Ice is Ian Read s private fiefdom the views of the latter can accurately be represented as official stances of the former As you may have gathered from Read s stated reason for leaving Sol Invictus Fire Ice adheres to some ideas not commonly held or accepted by the mainstream According to Read Fire Ice is meant to represent a concise examination and representation of the Northern Europe an ancient heathen tradition Read himself is a very serious practitioner of Odinism and has little time for what he considers alien and inferior modes of spirituality specifically Judaism and Christianity He also vociferously denies that Odhinn is an archetypal figure comparable to Dagda or Zeus which could have had something to do with his falling out with Tony Wakeford with whom by his account he has not spoken in years Obviously Wakeford s band Sol Invictus just sounds more Roman in spiritual orientation based on the name but Wakeford draws parallels all across the board between deities archetype s Of course this is just speculation on my part and it should be noted that Read makes somewhat contradictory statements in interviews about the exact nature of his relationship with Sol Invictus but I ve hammered out the outline of the basic story Far from practicing by the book Asatrú Read is very deeply attached to rune magic magick majick etc and asserts that it is absolutely necessary that one speak German which he does to truly understand the mysteries of the runes He goes on to say that a full accounting of the guiding ideology behind Fire Ice and his organization known as the Rune Guild would fill more than a thousand books and that it s something a person can only come to on their own Although Read often appears humorless and very high minded he has his funny moments When asked if he was against the modern world he responded I am a traditionalist who is happy that modern dentistry exists Similarly when asked what mystery he would like to know more than anything else he didn t answer with the fundamental basis for the secret of the Elhaz rune rather he merely said he would like to know who his great grandfather was And unlike most neofolk luminaries he takes a surprisingly accomodating view of black metal while it is no secret that many black metal bands draw inspiration from the neofolk genre and that many black metal musicians also actively participate in neofolk projects there is a high lack of reciprocation on the part of figures in the neofolk scene Read says that while he feels most of

  • We worried about the fire and the night - Everything2.com
    feet separated us from the creek itself and half that distance away a thin wood bordered the water On our other side open field stretched away several hundred feet to the base of the hill leading out of the valley The hill itself sloped gently through a heavy wood until opening on another pasture which bordered our farm None of us wished to make that trip in darkness unarmed The three of us picked the largest available firebrand from the dwindling flames and hurriedly moved as a group into the thin wood near the bank Grabbing whatever driftwood that had collected at the base of the trees during the most recent storms we raced back to the mental comfort of the light The howling started again only closer We swept the ground clear of wood and dry brush to the very edge of the firelight Our hackles had risen on the first howl but the frantic activity of trying to build the fire up temporarily busied our minds But as we noted the silence in the valley as if an invisible line just outside the light muffled all sound the goose pimples returned We drew close to one another at the edge of the fire The first set of eyes gleaming with reflected fire seemed to float in the darkness In a blink they returned to the darkness but then a second pair appeared to the right followed by two more to the left The sounds of uncertain sniffing could be heard in the tall weeds beyond the sandbar One of us hurled a rock into the darkness but it only resulted in faint sounds of rustling grass Terror fueled imaginations strung us out to the point of snapping Except for the ghostly eyes the pack remained hidden in darkness The fire kept them from coming closer Back in the comfort of my modern home surrounded by brick walls and a privacy fence the keening still evokes a primal alertness I worry that my young daughter will be awakened but she sleeps soundly through the gathering of the rout She is not old enough to have accumulated many fears of the night nor had the opportunity to face them by a dwindling fire I again remember back to that first encounter with coyotes Ultimately our fire held out longer than their interest and they passed us by racing upstream to whatever the midnight hours held The coyotes became a frequent point of discussion among the small farms in our valley that year They seemed more bold than in the previous year with one large male sauntering across a local farmer s yard in broad daylight despite the persistent threat of dogs Occasionally we would find one hanging over a barbed wire fence stiff with rigor mortis where a local had shot and left it as a warning to the rest of the pack We boys eventually found the den deep in the wildlife area that bordered the farms but quickly
