This is the full two disk, 2 hour long album sequenced as one long record, as it was meant to be heard. Please don't listen to the album on your laptop speakers, it will sound like shit. Give it a shot on a long hike or by a fire with headphones. The first half of the album is atmospheric metal, the second half is more americana focused, so beware if you hate country/folk.
Blåtimen is in honor and dedication of Valfar's WINDIR
The Wandering Ghost is for Adam Nicholson and in memory of Guy Clark.
This album takes inspiration from the words of Sigurd Olson and the North woods he so cherished.
This album is in loving memory of Cliff and Ele Hokanson.
