Can you believe it? I've been doing this blog for 10 weeks now. I'm pretty stoked. I usually don't have the gumption to see to a daily task like this, so I'm giving myself extra kudos today for hitting a blog post every day since I started. How long can I keep this up? Stay tuned and find out.
Now, the important thing for today is that we take a brief respite from Wolves and Wild Roses. If you're enjoying, I'm very happy. If you need a break, I understand. That's what Paladin Playlists are for! And today's song is another one that, in hindsight, should've been right there in the beginning. While Soldiers is my unofficial theme for The Paladin, this is the song that inspired me to write it in the first place: Vater Unser. Now, usually I add the artist afterward, but to my surprise when looking this up, I'm not sure who to credit anymore. When it was made, the group at the time was called E Nomine. Apparently it was less a band and more a project, because a good chunk of the members have moved on and formed another band/project called Schlafes Bruder. I have to say, I like the old name better.
All of that is beside the point, which is that the music is excellent. It's not hard to figure out how I came up with the idea of demon hunting priests while listening to this track. It's intense! It's perfect for battles against the unholy armies of Hell and, lets face it, lyrics in German always sound at least 2.5 times more bad ass. That's just science.
Now, I tried to find a link to an official channel for the song, but it looks like Schlafes Bruder doesn't have the song on their channel and there is no E Nomine channel. So... thanks for checking out this random person's channel when enjoying this song!
Keep your eyes open for my debut novel, The Paladin.
