mixtape: samhain – all saints – a halloween monday mix

Today is All Hallow’s Eve. There are a large number of cultural references to the day worldwide, with the most prominent of such revolving around the Gaelic harvest festival and later its coexistence with the Catholic Christian celebration of All Saint’s Day. Many of the ethnic and cultural traditions celebrated the Oct 31 to 1 Nov have their roots in the conflict and attemtped marrying of the two. In celebration of such a dubious coming-together, I’ve decided to go back to one of my more challenging, yet, enjoyable thematic playlist offerings for the well-timed Monday Mixtape this week and put together a little of everything that makes up the holiday, so to speak.

Shades of God from Draconian Times Paradise Lost
All Hallows Eve from World Coming Down Type O Negative
Making Evenings from Black Brick Road Lake of Tears
Hawthorne Passage from the Mantle Agalloch
A Sorcerer’s Pledge from Epicus Doomicus Metallicus Candlemas
In the Woods from Heart of the Ages In the Woods…
Nightfall from Tuonela Amorphis
Art of the Death Act III: The Requiem of the Funeral Eve from IV: The Requiem for the Art of Death Immortal Souls
Laid to Rest from a Chorus of Obliteration the Showdown
Last Song from Zion from the Funeral of God Zao
Singled Handed Attempt at Redemption from Plastic Soul Implement Training for Utopia
And There Will Be a Swarm of Hornets from the Anti Mother Norma Jean
I Am from Remove the Earth Advent
