Auld Ridge - Consanguineous Hymns of Faith and Famine
Captivating, bold, raw and emblazoned with European folk melodies. This new album follows on from it's predecessor "Consanguineous Hymns of Bloodshed and Treachery" in stranglehold fashion.
"Narratives varying from the inner conflict of a soldier under Sigurd the Crusader, the struggle of a medieval farmer in the midst of a great Famine to the triumph of a Suebian Goatherd over the ensuing Roman invasion, "Consanguineous Hymns of Faith and Famine" can be viewed overall not only as a testament to the power of faith, but also to what it takes a man to go through in order for him to question the efficacy of that faith. Taking the question of "why does God allow suffering" to it's logical conclusion, rather "how much suffering can one man endure before rejecting God"."
