Nordic folk, doom and progressive metal meet storytelling lyrics on Dun Ringill's, studio recorded album 150-Where the Old Gods Play Act 1. After the launch of their second Library of Death, the Swedish 6 piece decided to challenge themselves further by writing an ambitious double concept-album, released as two separate albums during 2023 and 2024 respectively. To enhance the storytelling, the band choose to increase the intensity of their dark, progressive visions whilst still faithfully incorporating their native nordic folk influences. Dun Ringill found a new lease of life when they decided to throw themselves into the grandiose and almost impossible mission of composing a cohesive and well-written story, whilst simultaneously recording a concept record without unwanted pretentiousness. It was important to make the songwriting the main focus, yet at the same time have both the lyrics and music compliment each other, making them live in unison and also work independently as individual songs. During this journey, the band has developed and explored many new areas outside their folk-doom comfort-zone by introducing a strong progressive element, which resulted in an advancement of their technical, musical and emotional expressions. The journey has been vibrant, powerful, challenging and at times very dark. Without the excessive downtime which the pandemic offered, this work would simply never have seen the light of day. 150-Where the Old Gods Play (Act 1 and 2) are based on a movie script written by Patrik Andersson Winberg (bassist and main songwriter in Dun Ringill) and Jonas Granath (teacher in religion and literature). The story, based in Scotland in early 1900, centers around the manipulation of the church with a priest whose secret agenda only reveals itself at the end.
