Monday's music: Negu Gorriak - Bi doberman beltz

 Let's start the week with a bit of music.

This song is the first track of the cd "Borreroak baditu milaka aurpegi" (that means "The hangman has a thousand faces") also called the black album for its cover. The band playing it is my favorite band, it is called "Negu Gorriak", that's it "Hard Winters" and was born in 1990 in Irun, Basque Country and died in 1996. This band's songs have a strong political content which a lot of it I must admit, I don't share, but still I think it's a great band. The black album got amazingly good reviews by rock specialized magazines, saying about it things like "This is the bomb. Borreroak Baditu Milaka Aurpegi is one of the best CDs released in any language anywhere in the '90s -- fast and furious, loud and melodic, smart and savage, and jarring and organic." (link to the complete review).

Cover of the Black Album

The band sings all their songs in Basque language but in the singer's official website there are translations to Spanish, French and English of some of their songs, this is one of it.

If you like music, you will like this, don't miss it!
