Today just got a little hotter with Mörk Gryning‘s blazing new track “Fältherren”. The Swedish black metal band unleash their wrath upon the masses with their new record Hinsides Vrede on October 23rd, 2020 via Season Of Mist.
Goth Gorgon comments:
“Fältherren” is for me the essence of what Mörk Gryning is. Dark and brutal yet melodic and dynamic. Lyrically it’s based on ‘The Field Marshal’, a song included in Modest Mussorgsky’s song cycle “Songs And Dances Of death”. A part of the (translated from Russian) original lyric should suffice to explain its meaning:
“Then, illuminated by moonlight, on her battle horse, shining with the whiteness of her bones, appeared Death; and in the silence, taking in moans and prayers, full of proud satisfaction, like a field marshal she circled around the place of battle”.
