It is a ritual to face your darker sides, accept them, and reshape them into a resource rather than a burden.
I kept the instrumentation and production to a minimum to keep the authenticity of its purpose.
Blóta is a raw, tribal, and honest album.
This is my blót. My ritual.
Now I give it to you, hoping it can help you the same way it helped me.
Get the full cover (20 pages booklet, plus front, back, and inside) if you buy the whole album :)
