Now that Ireland have become the first team to be eliminated from the competition (the Dutch can still mathematically do it) after meekly surrendering to the Spanish last night, it’s important to acknowledge that we’re still the best in the world at singing and waving flags and singing and waving flags at the same time, so here are two examples of the deep breadth of influence Irish folk music has had on the heavy metal genre. Allez Shevchenko!

France: Aes Dana  - ‘Mer de Glaces et t’Ombre’

With Ireland now out of the tournament while the cheating French remain, it’s with no little irony that we return to the French doing what the French do best: stealing from Ireland what is rightfully Irish. To be fair, Aes Dana are one of the more imaginative Celtic metal acts around, and they do at least sing in French, so they get some points. But not many.

Ukraine: Drudkh – ‘Everything Unsaid Before’

Elusive Kharkiv act Drudkh are probably the best-known of Ukraine’s four black metal acts, all of which are fronted by Roman Saenko, who must be fucking knackered at this stage. ‘Everything Unsaid Before’ is taken from their 2009 album Microcosmos and is a perfect example of their bleak take on folk and black metal.

Dude we're different now. The team has been purged and rebuilt after the world cup which-shall-remain-unnamed

Aes Dana > everything Drudkh have done after Autumn Aurora.

Also, I hope France wins. Despite all rivalries.

ohh atmospheric reasons. I'm watching this on a crappy stream, couldn't even see the rain.

They're having storms like fuck and are probably postponing the game.

'the Dutch can still mathematically do it'

It would be a small miracle if our team beats Portugal by 2 goals. Germany beating Denmark is less to worry about.

"probably postponing the game. "

wouldn't that be something inedit in an euro cup/world cup? the consequences would be like three games instread of 2, tomrorrow right?

Wolfhorde

Well, the German commentator just said that they will consult weather experts, wait half an hour and if it hasn't gotten better until then they will postpone it, meaning it will probably be tomorrow (if possible). Not sure if that means there'd be 3 games tomorrow, but it'd be likely.

Apparently if they cancel it completely they'll replay it tomorrow

who cares? it's soccer, and it's an international tournament game, they wouldn't have postponed if it was FIFA (they probably would). The weather is a perfect match up of who is a more superior team.

Complete faggots, should have played on in this.... if this was an english league would have just played on. It is a bit of a joke tbh.

Did you SEE the amount of water building on the pitch? It was unplayable. Plus FIFA have health and safety responsibilities to consider

Yeah they would have played on... The pitch wasn't even that bad, I have seen worse. Health and safety taken too far.

I really want Yann M'Vila to return from his injury problem, see what the hype's about.

Also looking forward to seeing more of Debuchy, thought he looked really good in the England match: always an available out-ball for the French and put in some dangerous crosses.

Menez had to score there.

Could be three or four goals by now. And hopefully Ben Arfa comes on for Menez at half time

Menez is lucky not to have been sent off

We're unlucky not to be 2 or 3-0 up by now
