A Track of Center-Earth, by Manner of Russia: “The Orcs Marched out of Mordor”


This is the most recent from Zoya, a singer with the outstanding Russian band Leningrad (Russian lyrics right here). It has over 350Ok web page views, although it was simply posted right now (or yesterday Russian time)—I attempt to focus the posts on this thread on comparatively outstanding works, since my purpose is partly to supply a way of how some individuals over there are perceiving issues.

The that means shouldn’t be fully clear on the face of the music, and as greatest I can inform, the band members aren’t themselves significantly pro-Ukrainian—they’re extra cynical and realist than ideological, it appears to me (see this music, which I blogged a month in the past). However “orc” seems to be a standard reference to Russian troopers by Ukrainians and different critics of Russia, although some say it additionally has different deeper meanings.

The orcs marched out of Mordor
Within the final daybreak
They had been singing songs collectively
The combating orcs.

About destiny and concerning the international land
And about their moms at house
And concerning the orc’s cudgel
With which to kill the elves.

Let the entire world be in ruins—and fuck every thing else
Let the entire world be, sure, in ruins—and fuck every thing else.
