Toroidh : For The Fallen Ones [2003]

This is a very solid single, and contains 2 of the best Toroidh tracks I've heard. "For The Fallen Ones" is a calm and dark martial ambient piece very much in the style of early Der Blutharsch, with its use of brooding melodies and sparse drumming. Henrik adds a nice touch with reflective and subdued vocals, speaking in a resigned voice: "when your time has come, and your time is up...". The mood (and title) of this song suggests to me a post-battle ode or hymn to, yes, the fallen one...
