Paleowolf: Primordial

Paleowolf is a tribal/dark ambient project aimed at invoking the ancient spirits of prehistoric past.

Echoes of Koliba Productions, 2015

Paleowolf is a meditation to revive those dark, forgotten and mysterious prehistoric eon, spanning from the time before Man was born to the beginning of the paleolithic and neolithic ages.

Primordial is reviving those ages, bringing the forgotten era of mankind's past into the eternal Now. This is the pre-language era, when all beings communicated only musically, with sounds and notes, as most beings still communicate now. 

In the early ages. Early humans communicated with symbols and sounds, that later evolved into complex representations that we now call "the language". In those mystical and magical days, shamanic, animalistic chantings were main channel of communication with the forces of Cosmos, forces of Nature and Earth.

Rejoice once more, Children of Earth, as the great and ancestral spirit manifests inside this world. Let us join the walk through the primal woods with the archetype of an ancient Shaman, the first and foremost connector of Nature's lost physical and spiritual realms.

A forest is a magical place, a primordial home in which humanity grew up and took some of the first steps. At the dawn of time, surrounded by the green and lush vegetation, in the shadows of archaic trees, with rays of sun glimpsing through the crowns of mighty trees... Hunting, foraging, walkin and sleeping alongside the critters and creatures, insects, birds and wild beasts... All together in the Great Cycle of life and nature...

Paleowolf's music can be defined as tribal, shamanic neofolk from the ages beyond all mythologies. Enter the prehistoric eon!

Inside Medieval Mind (documental)

Inside Medieval Mind 
Knowledge - Belief - Sex - Power
BBC Four

Leading authority on the Middle Ages, Professor Robert Bartlett, presents a series which examines the way we thought during Medieval times. Our forebears believed they shared the world with the dead and that angels and demons battled for control of human souls. As the church's grip on our beliefs increased, men and women were dragged before religious courts and multitudes were killed in the name of God.

Paleowolf: Prehistoric Meditations

neoshmanic arqueofolk
is a tribal/dark ambient project aimed at invoking the ancient spirits of prehistoric past.

The era of Paleowolf is set in times before, during and after the Ice Ages, when humans were still living the lives of hunter-gatherers. Paleowolf combines tribal drum beats and ancient instruments with dark ambient drones and epic choirs to create an ancient atmosphere of wonder, mystery, contact with nature and to open the primordial spirit-channels with ancient human mind through the genetic memory of mankind.

Prehistoric Meditations (2017)
This album was made exclusively as a special edition of ambiental music themed with prehistoric era and primordial shamanism, for meditative and relaxation purposes.

It's a 1-hour ambiental piece weaved with shamanic ritualistic calls that's meant to transport you to these magical times, to the archaic and distant past spanning all over through the paleolithic-neolithic era, connecting you energetically with the primal Humanity through the secret pathways of your deep genetic memory.

Descripción del podcast: En este programa se establecen parelelismos entre el lenguaje simbólico de la leyenda de Sigfrido y el oro del Rin con la historia de Arminio y los burgundios.

"El Cantar de los Nibelungos", un drama sobre la lealtad, la traición, la venganza, el derramamiento de sangre y la caída, está ambientado en el primer milenio. Los protagonistas son Sigfrido, un legendario cazador de dragones; la siempre leal Krimilda, cuya fidelidad continuó más allá de la muerte; Hagen, un traidor y asesino; la temible Brunilda y un mítico y el maldito tesoro de los Nibelungos. ¿Cuánto hay de verdad y de ficción en esta historia?

En el "Cantar de los Nibelungos", el mito y la realidad están estrechamente entrelazados. Durante este espacio buscaremos la verdad, las raíces históricamente demostradas a partir de las cuales surge el mito con increíble fuerza: ¿Dónde se encuentra la línea que separa la historia del cuento, la realidad de las sagas?

Versión cinematográfica de Fritz Lang, 1924. Die Nibelungen: Sigfried.
