During my stay in Kecskemét, Hungary, I wanted to do some research on some Hungarian mythology. The fuel behind the work that I made in Hungary is the tale of the Ördög. The Ördög is creature that lives in the underworld. It naturally appears as a creature with hooves, horns and a pointy tale but can change is appearance to either a hungarian shepherd, a fox, or a dark flame. The Ördög is tricky and cunning and it’s goal is to collect the souls that it has corrupted. And as intense as this might already sound, it gets better. When the Ördög isn’t collecting souls, it stand in hell the remainder of the time and constantly stirs a cauldron of the souls it has collected. The reward of a long day of soul corrupting is to then go home and look at your growing collection. Tough. In old Hungarian Ördög used to be Ürdüng and the meaning of the creature is also commonly referred to in christianity terms as a devil. So, you could only expect at least one heavy metal band to be named either and it seems only fitting that for the sake of entertainment that I share a link.
