Skalat maðr rúnar rísta, nema ráða vel kunni

Today's selection of music: Metal without electric guitars, music for and by machines, and a girl singing into a large cellphone.

Korpiklaani - Kadet Siipina

Section 25 - Looking from a Hilltop

Faun - Egil saga

Unheilig - Herz Aus Eis

Kehrwert - Maschinenmusik

About the title: It's used in the Faun song, and they took it from the 13th century Egils saga. It means something like "don't write runes that you can't read / control". Or as Lovecraft wrote in The Case of Charles Dexter Ward: "do not call up any that you can not put down".
