문명의 탄생? Wardruna 입니다. 주술적 느낌도 나면서 넓은 범위로 들어야 하는 이번 앨범에서 보여주고자 하는건 단연 포크메틀의 충실함? 으로 봐야 할 듯 싶습니다. 전작과 크게 다르지 않지만, 분위기상 좀 더 크고 어둡고 차가움이 서로 교차되는 드라마틱한 구성을 보여주고 있으며, 엠비언트요소에 더 다양한 첨가를 통해 장르의 모호함을 한 층 더 꾀하고자 하는 의도도 엿보이는 앨범입니다.

pripadá mi to ako soundtrack k historickému filmu. Mix folku, ambientu a world music
