The precursor for "Weiland"
Their third album sees Empyrium abandoning the Metal elements of their music for the first time, instantly creating a classic of nature-romantic acoustic music.
Inspired by Ulver's "Kveldssanger", this work is more influenced by the folklore of Schwadorf's home region, the Rhoen, than any other album by Empyrium, and it paved the way for "Weiland" (2002).
