Hungarian dark ambient project BlackWeald has released its most recent material under the “From the Dust of the Old Hungarian Plains, Emerges the Invisible Claw that Drags Us into our Rotting Grave” title .
After last year’s 11 hours long 666 Minutes in Hell, this one is a more compact album with a much easier atmosphere, focusing on samples resembling the old way of rural Hungarian life. Occasional ritual vibes and guitar work are also present.
Thematically, the album is about a mundane summer day in the rural Hungarian plains. The ambitious morning is washed away by heat, dust, and endless dry wheat fields. As the evening approaches, dullness, longing, and boredom set in. Even if something sinister happens each night, it goes unnoticed by most. Each new dawn is just another step closer to the inevitable end.
