Lately I've been obsessed with a mini CD (or E.P.) titled RETURN TO THE LAND OF FOG by British one-man-band Ewigkeit. I'm seriously telling you to download this E.P., put it on a CD, and enjoy!

It's so wonderful!

They're pretty good. At least the first one. Does anyone know whether Ewigkeit means anything in German, or some other Germanic language?

quote:
Ewigkeit was the name given to this music project when James found the word in the 1983 edition of the English Concise Oxford Dictionary whilst looking for a name not unlike "Emperor" (the black metal band whom James was a fanatic of at the time). A little known "imported" word, hardly used in the English language at all, Ewigkeit means 'eternity' in German. James's increasingly obvious love for confusing people, together with the ethereal and ambiguous nature of the word made it "perfect" for the project, but he has been known in interviews to say that in retrospect, it was the worst name he could have chosen.
That was taken from the Wikipedia site...

IIRC ewigkeit = "eternity". It's the title of a Borges poem, and the translation I have renders it "everness", but I think the translator was just trying to be all poetical and such.

E: Oops I see that's been answered already. Carry on. []

[] @ WT []

Eternity is evighet in Norwegian which made it quite easy for me to translate []

E: It wouldn't happen to be nur , Lillianna , or is it perhaps a poetic version of the word [] ?

Believe it or not, there are OTHER bands that are cool enough to give some of their music to the public, free of charge!

Check out the 'tr00' Scottish Pirate Metal band, Battleheart!

Just click on MEDIA section to download TWO E.P.s! Both will fit on one disc!
