As factories open and close and open and die, stones remain firm and noble, still being the walls of our homes, what surrounds our firepit, what we use as anchor when a storm comes.
To them we pay tribute with this melodies and we try to channel their pass through time, the roughness of their skin, and the spirits that inhabit within them.
Granit, quartz and obsidian, marble, sandstone and slate witness the pass of Yews and Redwoods themselves, and they will keep witnessing when we are not here anymore, neither the Yew nor the Redwood...
Music written by Pablo C. Ursusson, except part II which is traditional. This arrangement is inspired by the adaptation for hurdy-gurdy by Oscar Fernández.
Recorded at the Fire Vessel by Tobias Häussler one day of July and one day of September 2019. Bells and square drum recorded in Etura, Basque Country by Manix Salazar on another day of July 2019.
Our deep gratitude goes to Monarch for being there after so many years of friendship and music, to Uge/Throne Records for the same reason, Tobias Häussler, Manix Salazar, Inga Scheibel, Erik Gärdefors, our friends and families, and everyone who honors the bonds of friendship. Let's take care of each other.

Excellent medieval folk, IGR, & those with ears to hear. I love the sense of mysticism and deep, introspective ponder this album conveys, & the honest down-to-earth folky lyrics. Simply wonderful yet soulfully rich. Highlights for me are tracks 2, 5, 6, & 12. IGR truly capture what I feel is an authentic sense of a medieval bard at a woodland rill pondering the mysteries of life. Highly recommended. 8.5+/10. Alrihkh
