Track By Tracks: Hild - The Great Unrest (2022)


1. Hrist:

The fourth song was written for HILD. I just knew beforehand I wanted to do a snare build-up with some cool guitar stuff and then lead it into a verse with a steady backbeat and rhythmic driving guitars. Maybe something like ”Breaking me up” by Raised Fist. Figured the theme would transit nicely into a bridge in a different key and then land in a ”Dead Skin Mask”-kind of chorus. As it turned out, I ended up with just open, simple chords and a melodic Black Metal-feel to it. I didn´t plan that but I liked it. So it´s really the first song where I realized HILD could benefit from at least a little bit of melody and that I shouldn´t back away from my own spontaneous sound and touch, just because the original idea was to play Thrash Metal.

Lyrically, it channels valkyrie Hrist, in the interpretation of ”shaker” and terrifying energy that you can let scare you into defeat, or immerse you to press on to (and beyond) the ultimate limit of your physical and spiritual capacity. It´s about giving yourself wholeheartedly to a greater cause and following your heart´s path and not backing down from any battle you may encounter on it. Even if it means death.

Lyrics:

In the wake like an earthquake
Came the great Unrest
Shake your bones til they break
In the air a vibration
Came the hidden Hrist
Rattling death sensation
All of your breath
All of your blood
Give up the ghost
Surrender the spirit
Time to escape the body
To increase the earth
Tight Her grip til your movements cease
In the air a vibration
Came the hidden Hrist
Rattling death sensation
All of your breath
All of your blood
Give up the ghost
Surrender the spirit

2. Wodurida:

The third song was written for HILD. I was now tripping on valkyrie Wodurida and felt that she (and the whole project) needed a relentless, merciless song. Still, in Raised Fist/Slayer mood I wanted a mix of Raised Fist´s ”Running man” and the more chaotic aspects of ”Reign in blood”. I also knew from the get-go I needed to have a breakdown of sorts with a Hanneman-style riff. All in my own way of course. Lyrics are sorcery rooted. They concern the company of Wodurida as the wild child, the ferocious rider. Drinking mad wisdom and losing yourself in ecstatic abandon, rage, and inspiration. Be it in the fields of war, or in other adult situations. Wolf riding witchery.

Lyrics:

A rift in reality
Ready and ravenous
Tear open the gap
Frantic, fanatic rider
Wretched wolf in Serpent reins
Quench the thirst of Thurs
Untouched by casual laws
Unflawed by lacerations
Fierce and flaming
Wet wound wielder 
Laugher at a thousand deaths
Wodurida
Impale with point precision
Manyfold Murderess
Slit open slit
Ferocious, feral rider
Memory mead maiden
Many a moon ago
Drank the dazzling madness
Down the gushing throat
Fierce and flaming
Wet wound wielder 
Laugher at a thousand deaths
Wodurida
