You know what I fucking LOVE? The organ interlude from GBK's The Tricifixion of Swine, from the version on the Nunslaughter split:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7FsJPRtdyvs

And a big part of what I love about it is that, as opposed to a lot of organ music, it doesn't get too majestic or complex, like it's trying to overpower you. Instead, it stays fairly simple throughout, with a certain kind of beautiful, sentimental sort of medieval "folksiness" to it.

So, basically: Not the sort of stuff that would bring a bullet belt goatbro to his knees due to its intensity, but rather the sort of the stuff that would bring a tear to the eye of a grizzled medieval peasant, drunk as a skunk on fermented pig dung.

If y'all could recommend more organ music along those lines - shoot.

Bach minor organ concertos are similar in style, and quite possibly an inspiration for these pieces. Sounds a lot like this track you posted, or like "At the blessed grotto" from the first GBK album.

I prefer the harpsichord/klavier version on Kosherat, but easily one of the best interludes in metal period. Bach is a good call, also check out his works for lute and harpsichord: https://youtu.be/hNYJirAcyJo

There is one Lithuanian synth project Caduceus with their tape 'Viduramžiai' (litterally means 'Middle Ages') from the 90s. It's not based on organs, but still is very atmospheric.

One can find a rip here: http://ascoven.blogspot.lt/2015/06/caduceus-middle-ages-demo-1995.html

Love it!

I love Bach, but most of what I have heard has been bombastic, majestic and very overpowering. High art for fancy folk, basically. Will try to look into his lighter, "simpler," folksier stuff, though.

Caduceus didn't do it for me, I'm afraid!

I've always liked the intro and outro of this album (Caverne - Chants Des Héros Oubliés): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l_yDgaZr3Ng

Not bad by any means, but gloomier than what I'm looking for.

Again too gloomy and "dungeon-y," I think - I'd prefer something beautiful, and light.

Bach is the best (ever), but his organ (and most baroque organ) stuff is kind of boring...I don't even care to listen to Tocatta and Fugue in D minor past the first couple minutes. Maybe I just don't like organs...i like the Kosherat harpsichord interlude better too (though I think the composition is better and has a lot less fluff).

You might check out Bach's Art of Fugue (and Musical Offering)...they were written without specified instruments...find an organ version, and skip around in them...they are fairly "light" in places...if a bit too mathematical for my tastes:

regarding that GBK interlude in general (both versions of the track), is it 100% original? it's really quite nice
