Sound-driven society presents the second and last part in the Myrkviðr series. This two releases from FÄHUND are closely connected and created with a black theme, notably crafted for the storage of drones and sound waves. Born out of the struggle through dark times, and the fact that everything must come to dust. That everything dies.
The first track in this second part, takes the journey on a disoriented path. Through mist and haze, with drones that clouds your mind. As everything seems lost and leads into a hole, the final track appears. Hope will once again emerge, with rays of light to bring you back. And lead you through the end.
"If that thou hast the gift of strength, then know, Thy part is to uplift the trodden low; Else in a giant's grasp until the end, A hopeless wrestler shall thy soul contend."
— George Meredith, The Burden Of Strength

If you are a usual player of The Long Dark or The Hunter Call of the Wild in the Medved Taiga reserve, you will probably understand why I like these five winter themed albums so much.
If you also have a special place in your heart for The Wendigo by Algernon Blackwood... same thing.
Very ominous themes which translate very well the dangerous isolation and cold of winter. Forto Reibus.
