Prepare for Metallurgy

If, like me, you’ve always wondered what a synthesis of METAL and LITURGY forged in the fires of time would sound like, well wonder no more.

The Martyrs (CA) are here to answer the until-now unanswerable. Listen to a couple of tracks at PureVolume or on iTunes.

Crafted in secret to do battle with the forces of evil and imbued with the holy light, METALLURGY is the death knell of the old order, a veritable new age of justice and life. Though the storm rages, though the darkness may threaten, the ancient light is passed on! Prepare for METALLURGY.

Does that actually mean anything? ‘Metallurgy’ is a made-up word, right?

Anyway, the music’s not bad. If you’re into short progressive songs, more-spoken-than-sung lyrics and bits of liturgy thrown in for good measure.

  1. Thanks Ricky. Yeah, there’s Metallurgy from the Greek metallon + ourgia (metal + working)

    But surely there’s not Metallurgy from the Made-up metallon + liturgy (metal + the work of the people).

    Actually, just thinking it through there, it’s the same root, isn’t it.

    Ignore me … dum-de-dum … ooh! look at that tree over there.
