The Hu - Yuve Yuve Yu

Blasting with originality, here’s a piece featuring heavy metal riffing combined with Mongolian throat chanting and other traditional Mongolian orchestration. This stuff sounds so damn good that I feel a new metal genre emerging!

But what really stands out from this ground-breaking work of art are the lyrics. These words are a slap in the face of a way of life that has spread like a cancer in the world: hypercosumerism and rampant individualism (hyperindividualism). Oh, and the video is freakin’ awesome too!

“It has been so long eating and drinking being merry
How strange, how strange
Taking our Great Mongol ancestors names in vain
How strange, how strange
Yet, would not honor our oath and destiny
How strange, how strange
Why the valuable ethics of ancestors become worthless?
How strange, how strange

Hey, you traitor! Kneel down!
Hey, Prophecies be declared!

You’ve born in ancestor’s fate yet Sleeping deeply, can’t be awakened
How strange, how strange
Blindly declaring that Only Mongols are the best
How strange, how strange
Born to live as nobles Yet, can’t unite as one
How strange, how strange
Why is it difficult to rise up our nation up?
How strange, how strange”

Ride high, ride well, The Hu! As the originality that blasted me straight in the gut when I first listened to this song, I know you are destined for great things!

    Just discovered these guys. Today. Literally.

    At first I had no idea what they were singing. I was driven to learn.

    Heavy. Deep. Funny: the who? Really? Great joke!

    Hope they stay strong.
