”The first spark for ’Warrior’ came probably around 2017 jamming with a nylon string acoustic guitar. I came up with this haunting melody with the bass note stationary creating a dissonance. I felt like this could become something and I immediately picked up my phone to record it.
The song starts with that simple idea and after a short build up by the raw band instruments, the full orchestra kicks in and takes the original melody to a whole new level. From an arranging point of view we made sure that all the instruments shine through when needed. With a couple of calm breathers in between, we can go full throttle with the orchestra at times and really make the room tremble. It is slow in tempo, beautiful and calm as much as it’s haunting, yet heavy as an anvil.
The lyrics are part of a bigger concept, yet they work individually telling a story (to put it simple) about realization. Maybe someday, with or without war, we find our identity. For this character, it took years of battles in wars before realizing none of the battles were their’s to win or lose, yet to fight. In the end, we are alone with everything we have around us.”Kitaristi-vokalisti Juho Patinen
