Four decades have passed since Ozzy Osbourne released the song Mr. Crowley. One of the hymns of metal, the song today gains a version that unites Celtic and folk culture on the voice of Aline Happ, vocalist of Lyria. The lyrics speak of a famous occultist, Aleister Crowley, founder of Thelema, member of Golden Dawn. Crowley’s studies have already influenced pop culture like Alan Moore, The Beatles, Paulo Coelho, among others.
See the Folk / Celtic version of Mr. Crowley:
Inspired by Halloween, Aline Happ released the cover of Mr. Crowley on October 31st. The version brings new life to the famous guitar solo, considered one of the 100 best in the world by Guitar World magazine.
“I wanted to bring something with a different theme, full of meanings, for Halloween. It was not directly influenced by Crowley’s studies, but I like to know different topics, because everything contributes to our ideas. “, analyzes Aline.
Once again, the video was made entirely by Aline Happ, from conception to completion. The artist creates the instrumentals, records, mixes, masters and even records and edits the videos posted to the channel, with the support of Patreon fans. Worldwide known, Lyria is considered one of the great names in Brazilian symphonic metal. The band was founded in 2012 by Aline Happ. Since then, the group has released two crowdfunding-supported albums, Catharsis (2014) and Immersion (2018), and played in various Brazilian cities.
The quarantine forced artists around the world to reinvent themselves and seek new ways to make their work known. For Aline Happ, lead singer of the symphonic metal band Lyria, it was the incentive to start a project that had long been postponed: having her own YouTube channel. The initiative that aims to get closer to the fans, and show an unknown side of the metal singer, will now also become an album via crowdfunding.
