Distance

Distance by Ethereal Kingdoms Hollow Mirror. Symphonic metal. Mighty Music 2019. Artwork by Anna Holm Sørensen.

“The bond we cannot sever
Ever stronger as we fall”

Distance is the first song on Hollow Mirror and the third single we released from this album. It is a story of an unbreakable bond between two people and the consequence and pain of attempting to break it.
The song features Amalie Skriver on guest harmony vocals in addition to Sofia Schmidts signature vocal range from the highest soprano notes to the lowest growls.

“You can’t see the last page
It’s not written yet”


Ashes Within

“See!

I have laid my heart bare for you!
Is it not beautiful?”

This is Ashes Within
The third song on Hollow Mirror

Ashes Within is an encounter with the masked creature on the album cover of Hollow Mirror. 
Strangely beautiful, sinister in its majesty. 
It draws you close, you allow it to enter. 
Enthralled by its halo, you are too blinded to see the warmings right in front of you. 
This being is empty, it will not grant you your dreams. It will consume you. For it is ashes within.

“I search for beauty. For within me there is none”

Ashes Within features Asger Forchhammer on electric cello – a recurring sound in the Hollow Mirror collection. The chaotic and distorted sound represents the masked apparition – and shows up again in the song carrying that name: Apparition.

Ashes Within – emptiness in all its cursed glory.
Third song on Hollow Mirror by Ethereal Kingdoms.

Each step I take tears you apart”

It ends anyway
with one last page”

My Kantele – Amorphis cover

“Music will not play to please
For it was fashioned from cares
molded from sorrow”

My Kantele is our version of the 1997 song by Finnish metal legends Amorphis. We included it in the collection of songs on Hollow Mirror because we really enjoy playing this song – and we felt its lyrics and vibe reflected the energy on the album quite well. We added a bit more of a nordic touch in our version by featuring artist Sigurboði (DanheimNiðafjöll) on guest vocals and hurdy gurdy). Vocalist Sofia plays the 10-string kantele, so it was a natural choice to include that as well.


Embrace me
