Special edition cover:
According to a press release, Gâst contains a mix of tracks in both Danish and English, and allows a glimpse into the mind of Hugin through his music and his poetry. Influenced by the rich history and traditions of Bornholm, an island filled with myths and legends and beautiful, eerily evocative landscapes, Hugin leads the listeners through a world filled with powerful demons, haunted souls, tragic destinies and chilling dreams. The title itself, in the island dialect of Bornholmsk (Burgundian), refers to a Gâst - a type of a ghost demon or energy with the ability to possess mortals and inspire them in much the same way as a muse, with visions, stories, smells, sounds, emotions and pictures.
Two tracks from Gâst - 'Surrounded By Dust' and 'I Blaek Og Blod', together with tracks spanning Blodarv’s 14-year career can be heard on the band’s SoundCloud below:
