William Tydings Very incredible album. I can tell a lot of time and creativity went into crafting this masterpiece. Its not just the ambience or the guitar work, but the amount of emotion put into the songs. Thank you. Also, The Dance will give you chills during the breakdown and I really love the outro. Favorite track: The Dance.

skyfish117 Both melancholy AND cheerful. The softness of this album is great for any part of the day. Waking up, falling asleep, or quietly listening around a campfire. One of the coolest albums I have heard in a long time. Favorite track: The Dance.

about

The air hangs heavy in the air, exhaled by a huddle of men – alert and eager to set off. The long grass is stiff with frost and a murder of crows wait in a nearby tree. They understand. They too are ready for the hunt. The anticipation is unbearable as the invocation begins. Reverence and ceremony are key. There is no cutting corners and the rite only serves to heighten the senses and sharpen the mind. There is an ancient awe in the air and a feeling of connection to the past; to those who walked this same crisp ground before. Alex Boyd & Ana Dujakovic reflect on the poignancy of such a connection. The melancholy that sits in between the moments of excitement. The tinge of sorrow that follows a successful hunt. The sense of purpose has been and gone. The afterglow has given way to regret and unease. A beautiful creature has died that we may persevere. Is that the chants of our ancestors carried on the wind? Are they proud? Perhaps that is enough. Perhaps that is everything. To use the term neofolk here would be ironic as Ulvesang have reached back beyond the past and found not only a connection to those who came before, but also an unearthly primordial magic. Surely that is the very definition of true folk music.

Track Name: The Truth
There is a candle burning faster than most.
I'll tell you now I will not live with its ghost.
Along the path its fading light,
Yeah, it pulls...
And when it's gone, well you know out come the wolves.

And I will welcome their jaws.
Shred all my books with their claws.
No Hunter, no trader, no axe.
My mouth shut with cold, melted wax.
