Stupet 06:28
Stuped (the cliff) The fall, its not so bad Its fairly cold But it does not hurt And its over soon But the landing Is never good And its always hard And this cliff It goes further down than anyone has ever been for then to climb up again And no one gets to choose At the bottom You will have to wait There are more people coming Its breathing And gazing out So blindly across it all Stealing life So look warmly towards the world Whenever you can Because up here Its ours And by the cliff something huge lives In its den and silence Its the one But it has no answers And no words Its just always there But my hand Its for you too With all I have Because that might work And if we dare We could try With all we have That might actually work An old choice to remain when its dark We can search here Without lights and without doubts Those are reasons to stay  To keep something here For others to see before they come too close

Helt hjem 06:00
Helt hjem (all the way home) I can see all the way home from this tent Under a shadow but I am very close I went far away At first for life and then for peace Now im almost back but I cant come any closer The ground tilts away and I completely forget And then its dark again and everything is just wrong The house burnt while you slept And now you are awake but not like you used to Had a tiny hope about returning home While the world stayed outside But everything I saw saw me as well I have changed since I left this place There is no home here there is only a dream Reaching all the way out into my night The house burnt while you slept But now you are awake and not like you used to Lifting my arms stretching my legs Finding flames where there where none Using my nails on all the trees I can tell you that everything sees And I can see all the way home from here Underneath the shadow but Im very close

Svarte klær 02:38
Svarte klær (Black clothes) Can not I am not going very far right now These windows are tinted I can shape them with my breath But not all the way through Because before I focus my gaze On those who move out there The differences wash away And it has all entered my space And I have my own walls Heavy jackets in a fog Closing the door behind me Meaning to crawl out into the field Hepp Hepp (heigh-ho heigh-ho) To see the biggest hand That there ever was Plucking clouds from the skies Like blankets over the morning So that no one sees very far We excite the dust up into a tiny cloud By travelling around the year That awaits us when we come back home All the way home and fixing the gaze On a dream about sleep Black clothes even in bed So i can travel ever further Hepp Hepp (heigh-ho heigh-ho) So I can travel even more often Because I have my own walls To secretly get dressed in And I know about the little path That one that steals away from the road leading home And out there behind the biggest hands At first covering the eyes And then covering the whole sun As a hook on the door as one leaves As a hook on the door as one leaves

about

After having separately released music and toured for well over ten years in various bands like La Casa Fantom, Regn, Blackbird Raum and Fork amongst others, Lars (Windthrown) and Magnus (Lyngfarer) decided to work together on a full length studio album. The resulting split LP is drawing heartily from the underground punk, folk and metal world as well as storytelling and the diy aestetic. It spans from the fringier sides of traditional ballads to the more dynamic reaches of drones and noise as it explores commonalites between the two through a focus on the meditative and hypnotic.

The album as a whole is built on a noteworthy sonic pallate. Side A features Lyngfarer on the hardangerviola, anglo concertina, drones, various acoustic stringed instruments, singing and drumming. The B side presents Windthrown on electric baritone guitar, vocals, synthesizers, oscillators, cymbals and drums.
