  Frigga's Web - A Frithstead For All Heathen Folk
First and foremost, it is a frithstead where Heathens coming from different directions can "leave their politics at the gate" and work together in peace on matters that are important to Heathen life no matter what direction one is coming from.
This corresponds to Frigga's role as frithweaver (peaceweaver) and as mother of all the Germanic Heathen tribes.
Frigga's Web is designed to support Frigga's aims of building a strong, multi-faceted, viable Heathen community in the modern world, and provide a space that is focused on peace, frith, and the practical arts and skills of running and living in that community.

Heathens work to build healthy relationships with gods and goddesses, ancestors, spirits of the land, and others in their communities, both through holy rites and through their day to day actions.
Heathen groups and individuals hold feasts and celebrations based around blot and symbel at rites of passage (such as weddings or baby-namings), seasonal holidays, oath-takings, rites in honour of a particular god or gods, and rites of need (in which gods are asked for help).
The three Heathen festivals most commonly celebrated in the UK are Winter Nights - usually celebrated in October or November, Yule - a twelve day festival that begins around the time of the winter solstice, and a festival for the Anglo-Saxon goddess Eostre in the spring.

 Heathens Against Hate   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
Heathens were not Godless; on the contrary, they believed in many Gods, Goddesses, wights (living beings), and innumerable spirits inhabiting everything from stones to trees.
Heathenism is a polytheistic, animistic, and depending on whom you ask, a pantheistic and shamanic form of spirituality.
Heathens today often are quite educated about and interested in these surviving Heathen texts, such as the Icelandic Eddas and Sagas, for they give us insight into the historic practice of our religion.

Heathen was one of several killer 80's thrash bands comprising the Bay Area thrash scene of the mid-to-late 80's, along with bands such as Exodus, Vio-lence, Death Angel, Vengeance Rising and Forbidden, among others.
Heathen were one of the hopefuls of the second wave of thrash coming in the mid-80's.
This song seriously is awesome and brings back the glory days of Heathen's thrashy sound, although at times I am reminded of Armored Saint's classic metal sound as well.

Heathen, his 25th studio album (quite impressive for a music career that's spanned 36 years), is his first collaboration with Tony Visconti since 1980's Scary Monsters, and you can certainly notice the difference it makes to have him back working with Bowie.
Heathen is unarguably the most consistent and accessable Bowie album for years.
'Heathen' is by far the most interesting Bowie album since 'Scary Monsters' (1980), and, in my view, it surpasses the latter, which is often used as a benchmark to judge Bowie's subsequent output.

 Heathen Calendar   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
This was the time of the harvest festival for the Heathen Anglo-Saxons, and as the name of the month Haligmonath translates to modern English as Holy month, means that this month is a very sacred and holy time.
The fact that he recorded the calendar has given us an awful lot of information about Anglo-Saxon Heathen culture and their year, that would otherwise be lost to us, and reflexes can be found in continental sources, it is likely that the information relayed was in fact accurate.
In Heathen times, time was judged very differently from what we are used to today at some stage the Germanic peoples accepted the Roman calendar and seven day week.

 The Observer | Review | Heathen reaches for the divine
Heathen is mainly crafted with drums, bass and guitar and seems to indicate Bowie going full circle, or at least acknowledging the one facet of his personality he has been keen to ignore since the Seventies: Ziggy Stardust.
Although Heathen rarely stumbles, there are occasional problems, such as on the title track and 'Everyone Says Hi', where Bowie's arrangements sound a little convoluted in their desire to remain contemporary.
To that extent, Heathen is not a rebirth but a welcome, if sometimes unsure, rediscovery of former talents.

Heathen is, in essence, the first "traditional" Bowie album worthy of kudos in years, as it successfully reunites Bowie with producer Tony Visconti, the man at the controls during Bowie's Berlin period.
Heathen may not be a classic, but in this time of such non-talented bands making average or below albums, "Heathen" certainly does shine as one of the bests of the year so far.
Heathen can easily hold its own with the best of Bowies seventies output, in fact it might even be his greatest achievement.

 Heathen by David Bowie CD
On HEATHEN, Bowie not only reunites with co-producer Tony Visconti, but within the first 15 minutes references his '70s hit "Heroes" in the suitably smoldering "Slow Burn," and turns around late co-conspirator John Lennon's "God" in "Afraid" ("I believe in Beatles").
"Heathen", Bowie's first album since 1999's '...hours', conceptually and thematically is surprisingly quite 'human' for a Bowie record, as was 1999's '...hours', and perhaps Bowie is for the first time playing the role of himself.
Musically, the album is an eclectic mix of ambient structures (the album is book-ended by two mesmeric and beautiful pieces, "Sunday", and "Heathen (the rays)"), lush string arrangements, acoustic melodies, which blend together nicely on tracks like " 5:15 the angels have gone", "I would be your slave" "slow burn" and "a better future".

In terms of sonic quality, "Heathen" is the sort of album that gets under your skin, shimmies up your spine and infuses your brain with delight.
And since this album is a new release, it's much easier to accept a surround mix than it would be on one of his classic releases.
You also get four bonus songs (mixed in both 5.1 and 2.0) that were recorded for the "Heathen" album but were omitted from the standard CD release.

While it is true that the Bible is unclear on some aspects of the heathen, it is clear on many important issues concerning the heathen’s fate.
Therefore, when considering the view of the heathen to which we adhere, all the hidden implications of that view must be taken into account.
Since the subject of the heathen is so closely tied to the plan of salvation, it is important to consider carefully the view to which you adhere.

Heathen will surely be condemned by those who cannot forgive him for his past greatness, and will likely be loved by a few who still imagine strains of "Space Oddity" beneath its refrains.
Bowie hasn't touched rock 'n' roll like this in years, and that he can still carry it off this well is a pleasant surprise.

Heathen is, in essence, the first "traditional" Bowie album worthy of kudos in years.
One review of Heathen said that every time Bowie releases a new album, it is heralded by critics the world over as Bowie's return to form, since the doldrums of the mid '80s pop sellout, only for months later the critics to realise that it's actually just as bad as all the others...
In truth, Heathen doesn't have a bad track, the closest being Afraid, and in the final song, Heathen (The Rays), Bowie has made yet another masterpiece to add to his repertoire.

In our heathen ancestor's time, the heaths, while still a holistic part of the landscape and valuable in itself, were part of the utangarths, the outlands.
Being thought of as 'heathen', of the heaths, of the outlands, the only way to bring them back into the innersgarth of frith is to convert away from their ancestors.
The conception of heathen is also one way how I see the cruelty and total disregard of human life the missionary's and converting kings showed their heathen kinfolk justified, in their eyes at least.

The release of Heathen, Bowie's first album in three years, marks an important crossroads for him as he makes a concerted effort to transform from mere musician of note into musical godfather.

Bowie is certainly not past it, and with Heathen he suggests that we're quite some way from hearing the last of him.
