Galvornhathol released the video for “Eudaimonia”

The Teutonic blackgaze/shoegaze/ambient/atmospheric BM project Galvornhathol has shared the video for the track “Eudaimonia” – included in the latest album “II” available on all online stores.

Watch the video on the band’s YouTube channel.

Galvornhathol is a melodic metal project, combining elements of shoegaze, ambient, and slight musical hints of melodic death and black metal. While musically and lyrically lay on the simple side, the songs are based on poems and aphorisms about the intertwining connections of spiritualism (without religious interpretations) and nature. The name is derived from Tolkien’s Sindarin script and can probably mean “(dark/black) Metal axe”.

More focused on personal growth than its mainly nature-focused predecessor, II is a rather rough, but optimistic ode to life and your inherent potential to (co-)exist with the everlasting source. Gaia, gods..whatever one may call it. II is the continuation of a three-part journey from below the earth to anything above the Exosphere and will hopefully inspire the listeners’ way across the universe.

The album has been recorded, mixed, and mastered by C., who also took care of all music, instruments, and the artwork.
