Dun Ringill returns with the second single leading up to their double concept album ”Where the Old Gods Play Act 1 & 2”. ”Blood of the Lord” is an epic track by the Swedish 6-piece group on which Nordic folk influences are combined with doom and progressive metal to create huge, monumental soundscapes. The single tells the story about the concept album’s main character Lucia’s religious conversion from Catholicism to Protestantism.
Dun Ringill on ”Blood of the Lord”:
„A big meaning needs a big sound!!!
This song has one of the deepest meanings on this conceptual album and it inspired us to write one of our most epic tracks ever!
To bring the feeling of the lyrics alive, we used choirs for the first time ever and accompanies it with three-harmony guitars, playful drums and super heavy bass lines to give the song a larger-than-life presence.
The lyrics are about Lucia, who has to convert from Catholicism to Protestantism to take the communion in order to stay in the congregation where she has found peace.
But is there peace within this Parrish?
Note that the chants of Blood of the lord, Body of the lord take a sinister twist towards the end to become Blood for the lord, Body for the lord….“
