Story behind ‘‘Ånden som Gjorde Opprør’’ / by Mathieu Vaillancourt

Ånden som Gjorde Opprør

Only the sound of guttural songs carried by the wind that seem to come from a distant creature. The idea of a fire to find a little comfort is impossible.

The atmosphere that emerges from this illustration is like cold biting frozen skin after a long journey that seems eternal. The moon, which seemed to serve as a guide to winter deliverance, is in reality only an accomplice to the forces of nature who are the hangman of our existence.

The black and white evokes the desolation and death that winter brings to the heart far from home. The soul lost in this white desert sees no color and suffers only pain.

This creation is strongly inspired by the album Ånden som Gjorde Opprør by the Norwegian artist Mortiis. and was used to cover the Canadian reissue produced by Gravecult Records.
