I said "Who's that singing?" The reply "Valerie Dunbar". My reply "sold".
Run To The Hills - Hellsongs - "Hymns In The Key of 666" Click on "reviews" on our home page to learn more about this band/CD.
Vesle Kari Rud - Amasong The song is shorter than the legend behind it. Kari Rud could outdance anyone in her village.One evening a stranger invited her onto the dance floor. Faster and faster he twirled her until she fell over dead. The implication that the stranger was the Devil links dancing women to moral transgression.
