Dwarven Stone Upon Dwarven Stone
The string instruments are the biggest driving forces in this track, with a very methodical progression. Its extremely atmospheric with its diverse instrumentation and has a very potent presence throughout its entire seven minutes. The track also features some hauntingly beautiful vocals towards the end.
Into The Fields
This tracks main melody throughout the song has a deep and emotional quality to it that become even more prominent due to the tracks momental peaks and valleys.
Vergen By Night
This track is another long song that has various moments that stand out. The ambient background sounds work well with the songs plucking instrumentation to create a really atmospheric tune.
This track is a very eerie theme with a feeling of deep importance. The songs vocals are its most characteristic element, defining its overall theme.
